In addition to regularly saying dumb stuff, I’ve got a boxed set of the West Wing. There are some pretty gory Martin Sheen rumors that I’d like to beat to the punch. I’ll take a look at my shelf when I get home and update you on the rest.
I need to start with the preface that my areas of expertise have nothing to do with environmental/ecological science, so any opinions I have on the relative eco-friendliness of different ‘milks’ are mostly from a consumer perspective. Most of the information I’ve seen about environmental impact relates to water use,…
Well, at least this gif exists.
And that’s it. I’m cutting the cable to my cable, and I’m burning all but one of my beloved TV series boxed sets that I have kept well past their technological usefulness, keeping only my prized Chinese bootleg of the Golden Girls.
I’m still out here stanning hard for soy milk, the OG alt-milk for lactose intolerant bellies. Soy milk is Good Actually and has a much better nutritional profile than rice milk or the newer nut-based milks. DO NOT COME AT ME ABOUT PHYTOESTROGENS - I’m a plant scientist, y’all, I’ve seen the actual literature, and I’m…
For some reason, in my mind, I keep on hearing Morgan Freeman narrate the sexual harassment: “Morgan didn’t realize the way he terrorized women on the set. I don’t know if he wasn’t able to read their reactions or if he just didn’t care.”
I live in a small town near where Morgan Freeman has a home and owned his failed restaurant. There have been rumors for years (years) about his sexual harassment of women, especially wait staff or caterers at events. I have just been patiently waiting for this to come out since Metoo started.
Here’s a Fun Fact:
This is seriously one of the grossest things I’ve ever heard.
You mean the guy who dated his step-granddaughter does inappropriate things to women?
As a person with a soy AND almond allergy these “milks” drive me nuts. GIVE ME THE REAL DAMN MILK.
There is an excessively hip coffee shop around the corner from my office that my office-coffee-run friend likes. Their coffee is bad. Somehow their tea is also bad. They sell what they call “Mylk” in various flavors (turmeric, ~*~activated charcoal~*~, &c.), so I decided to try that on a recent trip. He asked if I…
House Democrats are inviting Parkland survivors to intern for them over the summer and help work on policy related to gun violence prevention. (They should pay their new interns, by the way.)
I get a sample of Biofreeze every time I go.
Massage therapist differs from masseuse/masseur in that the former is an extensively trained and certified professional and the latter often carries the connotation of sex work. I know a few massage therapists who get pretty bristled when people use them interchangeably, particularly since they sometimes have to deal…
Articulate and 100% accurate.
The words masseuse and masseur have french origin. Many job titles are gendered in french, masseuse is feminine and masseur is masculine, like actress and actor
Sounds like a Cosby in training.
“I have kind of held it in for a long time, because in a weird way, I wanted to protect the franchise.”
I apologize on twitter all the time. I don’t have any followers, so mostly I’m apologizing to myself. I don’t really find the apologies that sincere, so I don’t bother responding when I do it. It’s gotten really awkward with myself lately.
