So I joined OKC about a week ago and I have a few dates lined up this coming week. Here's the thing though, I've never actually been on a date. I'm 27 years old and haven't ever done the dating thing. What am I supposed to do? I'm meeting a guy for drinks tomorrow and another guy for coffee and a stroll in the park on Read more

How does OKC manage to destroy me on a Friday morning that should have been a great day. Hey guy who I've had a wonderful string of chats and messages with, I was looking forward to our date tonight to go out for a drink, then I got your "Hey. I've been thinking on this, and I'm not quite ready for this right now. Read more

OKC makes me feel really boring. Like, more boring than I think I actually am. Why does everyone always talk about travel and how much outdoorsy shit they do? I'm an indoor kid! I like to read!

Do any of you have any favorite stretching routines or specific recommendations for a good position? I've been wanting to start doing 5-10 minutes of stretching when I wake up and right before bed, but I don't really know where to start. I hate yoga in general, so I've been avoiding anything yoga-specific, but I'd be Read more

A friend just sent me this under the subject-line "FOR YOUR AWKWARDLY OUTRAGED VIEWING PLEASURE." I just...wow. Enjoy old white people rapping about Jesus Christ being their "nigga."

I just finished my graduate advising committee meeting which ended with my advisor cheerfully saying "she didn't accomplish nothing" and my committee members giggling. I can't tell if this was good or bad.

I've discovered that BF stops snoring if I roll over and cuddle with him. When I told him, his response was "well that's very sweet of me."

I'm far too used to American politics because upon reading that the Pope is resigning for health reasons I thought "Right...and he just wants to 'spend more time with his family' too. I bet it's actually sone gay sex or lobbying scandal."

Boyfriend has never played Oregon Trail before, but after hearing me talk about what a boss I was at the game and how it taught me all I know about westward expansion, he's found a copy of the game and is enthralled. Dork.

BF is making me dinner while teasing me for loving Danger Zone. So I put the song on for him to chop veggies to.

I had a totally random dream last night wherein I got a text message from an old high school buddy. I haven't heard from him since we graduated, but I did hear at one point during college that he'd left our hometown and moved to Seattle where he'd joined a band and was dealing god knows what drugs. So I got curious Read more

My lecture plans kind of went out the window today. It was supposed to be discussion of evolutionary psychology and its merits/demerits to follow up on Monday's lecture about genes and behavior, then rolling that into the structures of the brain, primarily focusing on what goes wrong in certain injuries and illnesses.

Any reason I shouldn't mush together some cooked lentils and rice, add some liquid smoke and maple syrup, and try to MacGyver a breakfast "sausage" patty out of it? I have leftover lentils that really need to be eaten.

I'm really glad I chose to have a beer while grading this, their first, homework assignment. They really don't get the difference between correlational studies and experiments, independent and dependent variables, or control and treatment groups. A substantial number of students didn't even bother to turn the damn Read more

Booked my flight and tickets to Portland for my conference in March! Any Portland Jezzies want to do a meetup while I'm in town?

So I just realized I'm on my own for supper tonight, as the BF has a work dinner. I have grading, lecture prep, etc. to work on tonight too, but I feel a new dinner-based freedom and figure I should do something slightly out of the ordinary. Ideas?
