I’m like a spent years in HP fandom level fan but like the importance some people place on houses absolutely freaks me out. Like it’s okay to not ask this on a date and maybe it’s not actually a great classroom activity ‘specially since it’s not a thing kids are reading as much these days. I’m on a Facebook group for Read more

Yup! Like even the charicatures like generally really aren’t. Also since I'm meh on Rachel, I absolutely love that there are so many different types of women in this book.

Just finished China Rich Girlfriend & still loving when Kwan doesn’t go the easy route on difficult characters/situations. Next up is Rich People Problems to finish up.

I basically wear makeup like 10 times a year, so I buy maybe 1-3 new pieces a year ‘cause I’m looking for better product rather than ‘cause I need it. I’ve got stuff in my kit (most popping to mind is a Stila lip stain) that I wore to a wedding like 9 1/2? years ago and I’m sure some stuff that’s even older.

I’m a Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry touch fan - super not greasy, lasts for hours. I get it at high enough spfs to get white cast though, dunno if that’s also a problem w/ lower spfs. I also like the Neutrogena sport stuff for hiking, but it is on the slightly greasy side. The Neutrogena stick sunscreens are less greasy Read more

Lately I’m digging the food halls for options + price and honestly like decent food. There’s one by Penn station and also a couple on the west side as you get lower. There’s also apparently (sorry keep kosher so going by brother here) a food hall/all the Asian options type place in K-town (midtown 30s or so).

I have a version of those I bought at bed bath and they really are the best at getting into all the crevices (use mine for cleaning the stovetop).

I don’t think it’s the water because my hair color is fine w/ loreal shampoos that I’m using with the exact same water, but maybe the loreal stuff is super strong...

Finished CRA, China Rich Girlfriend is up next. Kinda wasn’t expecting CRA to be as I guess smart as it was? Like everyone sells it as fluffy fun, and it is, but this is so much an extended kinship book. And I agree with the folks who are like Rachel/Nick is the least interesting part of the book, & also the changes Read more

Yup, like it’s mostly still hoodie + fall coat weather, and on shoes like just wear anything with decent traction (‘specially if it’s gonna rain).

:/ Yeah, I feel you on Joey if you’re good, it’s quicker/more efficient to just offload it on you. It sucks to be conscientious, but at least you're on top of work that would be handed to you anyway. 🙃

Lately I’ve been saying no to things I’d nornally say yes which is a skill I’m working on given I’m currently trying to pull myself out of the hole I made by saying yes to too many things. There’s a panel next week that I kind of feel like I should go to for quasi-professional reasons but like w/ commuting it's gonna Read more

Thanks :/ & it’s extra ridic considering I know this dude from a tech meetup where he got banned from the mailing list for being insufferable & thinks he’s the smartest person in the room.

He gave himself away via interactions on my posts (piece of work that must always be right) but the nail in the coffin was that he was dumb enough to review himself from the sock puppet & the sock puppet liked all the groups he would. Frankly I’m mad at myself for not more carefully checking that account.

I got a grant to fund my dissertation research which is the first time I’ve been funded to do research towards my diss. I’m completely terrified ‘cause it’s working on a fairly widely used open source project & so it’s gonna be all in public/open for comment to lots of different stakeholders. If I screw up, I’ll Read more

Same, major reason I requested the books was cause Astrid is supposed to have a bigger role and I found her so interesting in the movie.
