I made a Donner Party joke the other day, and I think it went over the head of some people in my circle.
I need those. I wonder if they sell them in the US.
This just reminded me of the best bacon I’ve ever had. Someone made it for an event I had, and it was amazing.
Yeah, cinnamon toast isn’t weird. Nor is eating salted lemon slices, although that’s slightly more unusual. That’s basically like a tequila shot, without the tequila and using lemon instead of lime.
I don’t wanna go to my pilates/barre class this morning, so I think I won’t. The normal instructor had her wedding this weekend. The sub does my regular yoga class, and she’s just too low energy for pilates/barre. And since it’s not in her wheelhouse she does the exact same stuff every time she subs. Maybe I will…
I’ve been stewing about this all day, so I’m just going to put it here. His supporters are now claiming that because he’s Jewish, he’s not a white man. And I get it, because anti-semitism is a real thing. But, as someone who is Jewish, I benefit a lot from being white. As has Bernie Sanders. And someone I knew as…
Of the towels that get used regularly, my husband has a bath towel, I have a bath towel, we have two hand towels and two washcloths. I have a tshirt for my hair. There are four dish towels in the kitchen (although there are a bunch of those in the linen closet that I should probably rotate through more). In the…
I am so fucking sick of him. Bernie Sanders is not the be-all, end-all of progressivism. You can still be progressive and not support him.
Haha, I literally just said the same thing to my mom.
I’m very impressed! That’s so cool!
I went to an all girls high school, and met my first boyfriend at science camp the summer before senior year (I was a nerd). He lived in Northern CA, and I lived in LA. We conducted most of our relationship via AIM (also, side note, I never called it aim, I always said each letter out loud). After our first fight,…
I am taking my 12 year old cousin to a Panic! At the Disco concert tonight. She’s so excited. I am getting my hair straightened for this event, because in 2004, when pop punk/emo was popular, I went to a Something Corporate concert and felt very out of place with curly hair.
My flight this AM was cancelled last night, so I am on a later one, which means I got to sleep in an extra 30 min, but it also means I might miss my class! It’s going to be tight. I am also very tired, since for some reason Do Not Disturb on my phone did not work, so I kept waking up to buzzing every hour or so.
Sure! Opacity measure how transparent something is. If the opacity is high, it’s not transparent at all, and if opacity is low, it’s very transparent. When Oppy lost contact, it was because there was a duststorm on Marsh, which made the atmosphere very cloudy, i.e. the opacity was high. This means that light from…
This was a gut punch to me last night. I’m also really upset about how it went down. They basically gave it 90 days from when the opacity of the dust storm hit 1.5, which is actually quite high (the opacity is a measure of how see through the atmosphere is). They should have waited until the opacity was at 1 for…
Good for you. When I was in grad school, there was a professor who threw an absolute shit fit over school being closed for a storm. He was screaming at the chair, telling her MIT wasn’t going to cancel classes, so why were we, MIT was so much better, blah blah blah. Guess what? MIT had a snow day.
I lived in Boulder for a year and I loved how sunny it was for a winter. It’s the only place with real winter that I would ever consider living again. Everywhere else was too grey.
I may end up wearing my ankle booties, which are fine, but a little shabby. I’m not sure anyone would notice but me. I’m just not sure how much walking around campus I’ll be doing.
No snow here, but we’re bracing for another big storm, which will dump a bunch of snow in the mountains, probably. Heavy rain everywhere else.
