I feel like I basically got nothing done in January because I was sick through most of it--one of those awful colds where you just keep coughing and coughing and not getting any rest because you're coughing so much. Thankfully, it's now gone.

Questions re: calling your members of Congress: Does it matter if you call during business hours, or is voicemail left after hours okay? And if they've already made a statement on something, is there a point to calling about that issue?

I have also started doing stuff for one of my local Indivisible groups \o/! I still need to look into more cybersecurity stuff as well. And I am doing that thing where I am reading way too much news. Some of it is necessary for volunteer work, and some of it is useful for work, but I really do not need to be refreshing five sites all the time, along with my personal social media accounts. I tried setting up something like Flipboard or another aggregator, but it feels a bit disorienting. I like being on the news provider's website and getting a better sense of their style and what they report on and etc. I suppose once I've figured it out for many sites, the aggregator will make more sense.

FWIW, staffers are pretty used to people being a bit incoherent/nervous. A whole lot of people are. They're also used to being BLASTED by the wingnut ranters, so whenever it's clear you're not going to scream at them, it's automatically a bit of goodwill.

The effort it takes for you is an important consideration, I think. Emails or off-hour phone calls are both legit. I've been sending postcards, and I'm pretty psyched about the Pink Slip idea for the Ides of March. (Everyone sends the Prez a pink slip that day, until his office is flooded.) But whatever works right now, I say.
