@sixohsix Usually it goes through a hyperfoamy phase before it settles in to active, healthy, and sustainable.

Reading through some haggadot and feeling, so very acutely right now, how Quaker my Judaism is.


"On Monday, workers say they will refuse to accept orders until Instacart provides hazard pay of an additional $5 an order, free safety gear (hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, and soap) to workers, and expands its paid sick leave to include workers with pre-existing conditions who have been advised by their doctors not to work at this time. Workers say the strike will last until Instacart agrees to these terms."
