While I sympathize with your fear, you need to get some perspective here. All of this is happening because some of us have a target painted on their back because of the color of their skin. Every. Day. Of. Their. Lives. And that devaluation of their lives makes every aspect of it an uphill battle. They’re descendants Read more

Well obviously there are witnesses because that’s how people know it’s happening, and yet, where is justice?

I understand you’re scared, but the fact that you are calling protesters criminals and are rooting for the police to arrest them means you’re on the wrong side of this.There’s just so much white privilege and false allyship here... I don’t even have words.

Did it ever occur to you that maybe, just maybe, that’s the exact attitude they’re fed up with and are pissed about? Like, unless they behave the way rich, white liberals prefer - over there - you’ll take your ball and go home? Read more

Ugh. It’s very easy to outfit your N95with a bandanna tied over the whole kit. That easily solves the out port problem while still being more breathable than the common reusable fabric masks. [Facepalms, stopping just short of touching face.]

I feel lucky; we had a peaceful protest yesterday in our city and other than that, it’s been very quiet. Still quieter than usual, in fact. No looting, no rioting, literally one midday protest and the headline from it was “NOPD thanks protesters for a peaceful demonstration” Read more

Truly fuck people who think lawn care needs to begin at 6:30am.

I have a Kindle Paperwhite, which I love for reading anything that requires reading, and a Surface Pro 3, which I use as a home computer (except at times like this when my work computer is at home). I enjoy the surface for reading newspapers (e.g., the New York Times), but it’s a little heavy for curling up in a chair.

We went to Lago d’Iseo when the Christo floating piers were a thing. It was really fun and generally a great area to be in. Go whenever it’s possible again.

Toum - it’s a Lebanese garlic sauce that’s basically just an emulsion of garlic and olive oil and a wee bit of lemon juice. If you love garlic you’ve never tasted anything so good. You can make on your own but the emulsion is tricky and Trader Joe’s sells a version literally just called “garlic dip” and it’s *chef’s Read more

Nostalgic Disney movies. I’m partial to both the animated and live-actions, but one of the things I love about having access to Disney+ is so many of the 60s era live-action movies. A lot of them are absolutely silly, and occasionally there are what Disney warns as “outdated cultural depictions” but on the whole they Read more

I bought smoked salmon for breakfasts this weekend. I didn't have time this morning to put it on a bagel, but I'm already looking forward to tomorrow.

I’ve never heard of that fish! It sounds delicious, I’ll have to keep an eye out for it.

I love smoked salmon. On bagels, in sauces, on crackers, on whatever vehicle brings it to my mouth. Read more

As I said in a comment earlier today, this site has really opened my eyes to so much about teaching, academia & what you guys put up with. I know I sound old but we weren’t like this (I don’t think).  What happened?
