I have had both the Beyond and Impossible burgers, and enjoyed them both. You can buy the Beyond ones at Whole Foods (in the States; I know you are in Canada so I can’t speak to that). The Impossible burger tastes more like a well-done burger. I used to say I preferred the Beyond burger, but then I had it in a…
I just finished Shrill. I didn’t like it as much as I expected to. I think the first few chapters relied too much on swearing and shock value (not that I mind swearing; I swear a lot). It just felt forced, in a way that Lindy’s writing usually doesn’t. I did like the later chapters, though.
I am going to exercise and do some teaching prep.
Is that the Lexus hard top convertible? That was my dream car for a really long time.
No love for the X-ray missions, huh?
I forgot about this earlier, but I am secretly glad my usual stylist just moved to a new state. He cut my mom and dad’s hair, and then my hair, but I don’t think he kept up on best practices for curly hair. So my hair looked fine, but I am excited to move on to someone who is a curly hair expert. But I always felt…
I am an adjunct! And this new position is definitely a step up, in that it pays an actual salary, not just a per class thing. It’s a great place, and their goal is to get their visiting professors TT positions, which is nice.
Oh, no! Was it you who also told a story about a really bad coloring experience with your child, or was it someone else?
It is super-windy here again.
Same, down to payless.
Indeed they are!
Yep! After this exam I’m going to have to tell people they need to rethink the class.
I am grading midterms. It’s a real shit show. A large fraction of people answered 0 of the free response. I don’t know if it’s because they didn’t see them, since it was the back of the last page, or what (but it was in the instructions). I had a proctor give the exam, so I don’t know what happened. Of the people…
That is a great picture! I know the person who runs the CSAIL twitter account, and he was surprised that it went viral.
It’s great people are celebrating her! I really don’t want to downplay what she did. It was amazing. But she wasn’t the lead, by any stretch. This project was conceived of 20 years ago and was a huge international effort, led by Shep Doleman (professor at Harvard). Her work for sure played a large part of this, and…
Elementary school—ballet until age 9 then soccer, which I quit after 9th grade, Girl Scouts. I also started formal piano lessons at age 7 (though my mom started teaching me when I was 5), which I continued until freshman year of college.
It’s very windy here. That, combined with the superbloom, is making me sniffly and itchy all over.
For non-mystery/thriller, The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory is a delight! For mystery/thriller, if you have not read A Simple Favor, it is also a delight. But in a totally different way, since it’s so bad it comes around to being delightful.
Either jap chae or TJs honey shrimp with rice, depending on how motivated I feel.
