...unless they have a black thumb. But this article resembles me :) #TeamHouseplant!
Talk about what, if anything, you’re doing for the eclipse.
Pattern: Cersei has lost all her children. Olenna has lost her children. Catelyn died watching her child die. Ellaria has lost several (all?) of her daughters.
TW: At the bottom, I talk about sexual assault and predators, specifically in the school context of female teachers and male students.
Groupthink. I’d like some input on two different people, two totally different scenarios, in which I’m debating reaching out to people. I have a hard time sometimes meeting new people (um, who doesn’t? No, really. If you don’t, please share your secrets), but these situations are also not your standard “meeting new…
I have a friend who’s coming in to town this week. She reached out last week to let me know and see if we could grab dinner one of the nights. I said yes, and we agreed to a specific night (along with her SO and BoyPenguin). She then texted this a.m. asking to reschedule for breakfast on a different day, which is also…
Our garden is doing well. Too well, one might say. We have tons of kale and quite a bit of lettuce and I’m losing my interest in making salads. With the lettuces, I’ve been doing tortilla wraps with a beet green pesto that I made (10/10 would recommend!). I’ve done kale chips, sauteed kale, and kale in salads. I’ve…
This was posted on my facebook timeline today. As we’ve long suspected...
BoyPenguin, his mom, his former landlady and I went out for dinner last night, then to a restaurant where the evening music was a guy playing Kenny G-type music. Two ladies there were doing the white girl wiggle—basically taking small side-to-side steps which made it look like they were swaying while their hands…
This isn’t like the UHG saga (I miss BumbleBeaver!), for those who remember, but BoyPenguin’s mother is here for a week. She came in Friday and is leaving....you know, whenever. She’s retired, so she’s not on a timeline.
I do freelance work for people, including graphic design and web work. One of my clients is my step mom. Our history is fraught, to say the least. I’ve spent quite a bit of time in therapy addressing the things she did to me as a kid and teenager, and I think it helped. But I have a hard time saying no, and for some…
Or for many of you, Monday Afternoon OT!
You’re back to normal! Thank you. That right sidebar layout you had going was terrible.
I’m arguing on facebook with a guy who doesn’t think it’s sexist that the artist who created the Bull is asking for Fearless Girl to be taken down.
For all of you who chimed on in whether or not the food I was planning was kosher, turns out it was! The potato latke cupcake things were a hit. Everyone liked them! They were like sophisticated tater tots :)
Hi GT! Hoping for some help on a menu I’m planning for a party tomorrow night. One of the women coming is Jewish, and it’s Passover. She told me she’s not super kosher, and summed it up by saying “Basically I can’t eat flour.”
As promised, here are pics from Sheba’s birthday party last night:
My friend and her husband live in Southern California. It’s not L.A. or San Diego, but it’s one of the suburbs around there.
Should I throw a party for my cat’s 21st birthday? I wouldn’t invite other cats, just people. Does this come across as quirky cute, or batshit insane?
