sometimes a little knowledge is good

Saturday, October 7th, 2017

All I know about Star Trek Discovery is what starandrea has posted and the (surprisingly little) that has crossed my tumblr dashboard. Here is what the show looks like in my head: 1. There is a woman. (I hope more than one?) She is great. I like this part. 2. A desert? There was a […]

not even on purpose

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017

Okay, so there are hundreds of awesome photos from our trip, but I really love this one — check out our not-even-on-purpose matching game! Socks, shoes, backpacks — all color coordinated. (Also of note: extra leg room in the emergency exit row!)

Eclipse!Trip Day 3 (recap)

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017

Nashville was HOT. So hot. I crashed hard after the zoo and slept for something like 9 and a half hours. Woke up feeling good, and we did some walking (mostly inside). (A passing guest took our photo inside, where I look basically awake and like I can handle being a person who does things. […]

Eclipse!Trip Day 2 (recap)

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017

Eclipse totality was amazing — worth the trip, absolutely! Being part of thousands of people who showed up to look at the sky legit made me so happy there were tears in my eyes. I loved that we weren’t surrounded by scientists or serious photographers, just a whole bunch of people who thought ‘yeah, this […]

It’s a story for me! I love everything about it! starandrea is the best! good choices (snacks in detention), by starandrea “Oh, hey,” Billy said, like he’d forgotten they weren’t supposed to acknowledge each other too. “Jason brought snacks, but he says not to tell anyone.” (Also, I love the idea of the team bonding […]

close enough

Monday, July 17th, 2017

Sooooo, I’m super excited to be traveling with starandrea next month to see the eclipse! And of course, packing is my favorite part of trips. (Really, it is. I don’t know why.) And I had this debate with myself, because it’s a three day trip and that’s counting the travel days on either side, so […]

fic rec Friday

Friday, March 31st, 2017

What is this? *Andrea wrote about sneaking snacks into detention? It’s the Power Rangers fic of my heart! this is totally what happened (which is not the actual title of this story by starandrea) “Oh, hey,” Billy said, like he’d forgotten they weren’t supposed to acknowledge each other too. “Jason brought snacks, but he says […]

fitbit unexpected consequence

Tuesday, February 21st, 2017

For less than a year, but more than half a year, I have been using one of starandrea’s fitbits. Most of the time I leave it on at night, because it actually does seem to encourage me to get more sleep (aka go to bed earlier). (Possibly this is a natural consequence just of getting […]

more trip in review!

Monday, November 14th, 2016

Fun fact from our day at Epcot: I got all the way into the Mission Space building without realizing it was *that* Mission Space — the scary puking ride I’d been warned about! But, you know, we were already there. And so I cheerfully departed for the “Green Team” experience (*Andrea, being far braver than […]
