LYBL

Sunday, August 12th, 2018

I think it’s so interesting that we’ve culturally shifted from “YOLO” to “living your best life.” (Which we don’t call LYBL, because I guess that would be weird.) I mean, I like living your best life better? So I’m super good with the change. And I am not a cultural anthropologist, or whoever studies such […]

overall score: positive

Thursday, July 5th, 2018

Since I did not barbecue anything for the 4th of July, I figured I could do something else that would be culinarily celebratory. But, you know, easy. And I don’t love barbecue chips, so I decided to really go wild and try the Maple Bacon Kettle Chips. The cashier was SO EXCITED that I was […]

“I could have been at a barbecue!”

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2018

It’s almost the 4th of July, and that means it’s time to get ready for an INDEPENDENCE DAY DOUBLE FEATURE! That’s right. I am the (not entirely proud) owner of Independence Day AND Independence Day 2: Resurgence. (Yes, I did have to google what the subtitle was.) And since it’s approximately a billion degrees outside, […]

one more Star Wars post

Thursday, June 7th, 2018

Super rambling thoughts about the difference between Rogue One and Solo. Because Rogue One was like ‘is it worth it to do bad things/things you find personally immoral in order to serve a greater good? where is the line, if there is a line?’ (Like, Cassian killed that guy in the beginning, and the Rebellion […]

workaday Wednesday

Wednesday, May 30th, 2018

I was doing some reading at work (as one does), and it happened to be an instruction manual that was very clearly translated into English from another language. Perfectly understandable, but the phrasing was sometimes a bit unusual. Absolute fave: Instead of “magic bullet,” the instructions used the phrase “enchantment shot.” PERFECTION. Where can I […]

cool app alert

Monday, May 28th, 2018

I have A Thing about having lots of apps showing on my phone screen. Two rows; that’s it. (I want to see my background picture, darn it!) So if I’m not using something regularly, I like to tuck it away in the little Extras folder. (I might want it again someday! I don’t want it […]

the crossover we deserve

Thursday, March 22nd, 2018

Having watched exactly one (1) episode of Rise, I have learned exactly zero (0) of the characters’ names. But that’s okay, because there were a LOT of similarities to other stuff. [I was expecting Glee, but Glee had that weird ‘we’re a serious teen drama BUT also a comedic parody of teen dramas’ thing going […]

I’ve entered the part of March where I’m just 10,000% ready for it to not be winter anymore. Unfortunately, New Hampshire winter could easily last for anywhere from zero to eight more weeks. Even more unfortunately, it’s probably not a good idea to spend every day of those weeks ignoring everything by reading fanfic all […]

I have Some Thoughts

Thursday, February 22nd, 2018

::deep breath:: I have Some Thoughts about the upcoming MCU Infinity War movie. And also fun thoughts. Let’s go with those. 1. A huge shoutout to that tumblr blurb about Shuri and Peter Parker pulling the “what’s updog” joke on Thanos. I chortled through the entire trailer thanks to that, and enjoyed it immensely. 2. […]

workaday Wednesday

Wednesday, February 21st, 2018

Since it is unseasonably warm at the moment, a post about going outside at work! 1. I work near an airport, which means every once in a while a very low-flying plane will go over while I’m out walking. This constantly gives me the urge to throw my hand up in the air, Free Willy […]
