    As I wait on interminable hold, the Muzak busts out a light-jazz version of “I Ain’t Got Nobody” and I realize I’m being trolled hard.

    Before I had kids, I thought that if my child died, I would regain belief in God so I’d have a target for my rage. Instead, I have no rage.

    I’m not sure if writing code (that actually works!) this past weekend was therapeutic, exactly, but it was certainly distracting.

    I need help: a JS script that crawls through a DOM tree and does regex search/replace on element text. Googled several examples; none WFM.

    We want so much to be the superheroes our kids believe us to be, but we aren’t. There are no superheroes. There is only us.

    Sometimes I get irrationally angry about other people’s coping mechanisms. And so I wonder how many feel the same way about mine.

    I was offline and missed that today was #MollyDay. Just call me Captain Elsewhere, @mollydotcom—and when the bar talk turns weird, call me.

    Almost everything is harder, and one of the hardest is continuing to parent our surviving children—setting boundaries, disciplining, etc.
