The little dog is probably still to big, and I can’t get him to pose for a picture without his ears pinned back.

Work in progress. Missing one cat (maybe?) and one human.

When we go in for lactation appointments, the nurse keeps talking about Celeste “getting organized“, and I keep thinking about labor organizing every time somebody says it. So today I introduced her to Union Maid, baby’s first Woody Guthrie. She literally vomited at the mention of union busters. ✊🏼

Fred Meyer is engaging in unfair labor practices in their “negotiations” with the Union. They should pay their workers a living wage and close the gender pay gap (and not over the next 35 years!).

Stand with the Union.

The other quoted “source” is just an “intuitive”, so I guess it makes sense that the first one is primary?

Also “intuitive” is not a noun.

I’m pretty open minded, but if you write an article where your primary source describes themselves as a “futurist and holistic intuitive”, I’m really going to want you to show your work. Citations, please.

Celeste was unimpressed with her first presidential debate. The candidates don’t stay on topic enough, and not enough time devoted to her favorite issues: paid family leave and mandated nap time for all workers.

Jorge Ramos is doing a better job of holding candidates feet to the fire - without being an ass - than any moderator this cycle, possibly in any debate I’ve seen.

Well, the trial period is over and it’s been the happiest week of our lives, so I think we’re going to keep her. Allow me the honor of (belatedly) announcing the birth of our daughter, Celeste Octavia Luciana Sorace.

PSA, since it came up again: don't post pictures of your keys on the internet.

The wait is over. World, meet Celeste Octavia Luciana Sorace, born at sunrise on September 4th. She is happy and healthy and home. Mom and dad are also healthy, aside from having our hearts stolen. You may surrender yours now. Be prepared.

Out-of-office notice up on my work email for two weeks. They felt better that it probably should have.
