the more you know

Monday, February 18th, 2019

Fanfic introduced me to the concept of “stress baking,” which the internet tells me is apparently a real thing. I don’t get it, but that’s cool, it seems like a neat de-stressing option if that’s your jam. I am more of a “stress reading” person, which leaves me with a lack of both baked goods […]

cookie saga

Sunday, February 17th, 2019

I may or may not have ordered four boxes of girl scout cookies, and now I am in a quandary. (Also, did not know until just now that quandary has an extra ‘a’ there towards the end. Neat!) I definitely got an email asking if I wanted to order cookies, and I definitely sent one […]

that Friday feeling

Friday, February 15th, 2019

Thanks to Thomas Benjamin Wild Esq, that feeling of being 10,000% done with things has been set to music! Turn that ‘no f*cks to give’ feeling into art! I’ve No More F***s To Give! [Probably goes without saying, but the link goes to a youtube page and the song will start playing automatically. There’s about […]

jeans hack

Thursday, February 14th, 2019

My cat is slowly destroying all of my jeans, by picking at them with his claws, which isn’t actually the problem. Said picking results in little white tufts on the jeans, which also isn’t the problem. The problem is that those white spots are eye-catching and very visually distinctive — making it super obvious that […]

workaday Wednesday

Wednesday, February 13th, 2019

Uh, so I was trying to figure out what to write about today, and I came up with the following ideas: *what even with the weather right now? (seriously, what is that noise?) *story time about how I find saying ‘eventually, we’re all going to die’ quite soothing, but have learned not to say it […]

it’s all about the bread

Tuesday, February 12th, 2019

Yesterday I was reading about the ‘let’s get this bread’ meme (because I derive great joy from confusing my boss with stuff like that, but figured I should make sure I wasn’t misunderstanding it completely before tossing it out in a work setting). And this led to trying to explain to someone (not my boss) […]

toaster update

Monday, February 11th, 2019

I’ve gone up from the “four slice” toaster oven to the “six slice,” which in reality means that I could now realistically fit four slices. (I’m not sure what kind of miniature bread is used in the marketing pictures for toaster ovens — a niche baking opportunity to be sure.) Not that I’ve ever felt […]

Captain Marvel!

Sunday, February 10th, 2019

Things I know about the Captain Marvel movie: *It comes out on March 8th. *”Carol gets back up because ‘Fuck you.’” (Kelly Sue DeConnick) *There is a cat. *The cat is named Goose. *Goose might be an alien. *Goose has a movie poster.

I feel that feel

Saturday, February 9th, 2019

Last night one of the young kids in the apartment building went down the hall screaming. Not a ‘I’m freaked out’ scream, more of a ‘I’m very small and have limited options for expressing myself’ scream. It was the Big Mood moment of the day, really.
