New Tricks
It's a litte embarrassing, in some respects, to admit how long I've been taking yoga.  Embarrassing because in all these years, I haven't gotten much better at it. Sure, I've improved my alignment, developed (and lost and developed and lost) strength and ba...

#Microblog Monday: On the Yak, and the Price of Free Speech
On April 17th, a young college student and member of a group called Feminists United was murdered in her apartment after attending a day of silence event raising awareness about bullying of sexual minorities on campus.  This is horrific enough.  But perhaps...

On Owning Your Words
"Spic." The word, directed at me, was laced with vitriol.  I was eight years old, and I didn't know what it meant; I only suspected that it was something hurtful. I was used to hurtful words, but when I asked my mother about this one, she told me only that ...

#Microblog Mondays: The Things I (Now) Hate
We were coloring (not drawing) with markers. Despite the stockpile of crayons in all 96 colors (and more, given the slight variations in color depending on brand), and the fact that the markers were half-dried-up anyway, requiring smaller-than-usual strokes...

Bystander Intervention, and the Comeback
(reposted in an expanded version from Facebook) I don't usually stop at Starbucks in the morning.  I make my own coffee, and even when I buy coffee, I prefer to get it from an independent shop.  But 1) I had to go to the post office, which is near Starbucks...

#Microblog Monday: Read to Me
This weekend, during a long drive (you'll just have to wait to find out where I went!), I listened to what I think may have been my first audiobook. I belong to a book discussion group that reads one book a month together, and I've always read the book, sca...

Cinco de Mayo, Beyond the Margarita
The blogosphere was awash with Cinco de Mayo recipe posts this year, it seemed, even on BlogHer.  And I was going to ignore it, but it ticked me off more than usual this year.  (Here's where you say, "well, just don't read them."  But I think we can't just ...

From One Writer to Another
After we'd left all of our bags and coats in a locked room, they led us into a windowless classroom inside the library where a large screen featured the catalogue search page.  I was there with a group of students for a session on archival research; I thoug...

Out of Time
Driving over the hill, I had to shade my eyes from the sun; the light was all wrong. It was mid-day, and I'd taken the morning off to stay with my daughter, who had been running a fever of 106 (no, that is not a typo) during the previous two days.  I hadn't...

Last night, as the kids ate dumplings and sushi and sate (ordered in) at the kitchen counter, because my husband was away at the NJ Regional Science Fair, I told them that today was going to be Pi Day. We would have pie for breakfast, and pie for dinner, and maybe even pie for lunch.

On International Women's Day
Maybe I'd been living under a rock, but I'm pretty certain that the first time I heard about International Women's Day in my 30s, I thought it was an Australian thing. No one had ever celebrated International Women's Day in my house when I was growing up, n...

Basic Information
Gender
Female
I am a regular at American Tire and Auto of Flemington. I have found them to be fair, and to have competitive pricing. If I have a complaint about service, they do their best to resolve it (e.g. once after a repair I heard a continued noise, and they took it back twice to continue investigating the problem, free of charge). They stand by their work. I can always get an appointment, and the vehicle is ready when they say it will be ready. My one complaint is that sometimes I feel it's a bit too busy, and so they have to rush through their explanations of repairs and charges.
