the void shouts back!

Thursday, December 6th, 2018

It seems like it must be the moment to post the obligatory ‘wtf tumblr’ ramble. Here’s my question: are we required to delete our tumblr accounts in solidarity? Or can we just ignore them like all the other ghosted sites? (Also, did I ever delete my lj account? I don’t think so. Huh. Probably I […]

crock pot caramelized onions

Sunday, December 2nd, 2018

As easy as the internet promised! Also, delicious. This was the recipe I made up based on reading suggestions online: 6 onions, sliced 3 Tbsp butter 1 tsp camp mix 1 tsp brown sugar *I used yellow onions (regular sized? IDK, the size they always are at the grocery store) and sliced them. They filled […]

happiness Wednesday

I’m pretty sure *Andrea has already linked to this article, or one similar, but I saw an excerpt on tumblr this morning, and was intrigued all over again: Pop quiz: If you suddenly found you had an extra $100, what would you do with it? Now: What would you do if you suddenly found you […]

sounds about right

Tumblr is such a wild way to learn about movies, but it’s often much more fun than seeing the actual movie itself. Take Venom, for example! I have zero plans to ever see the movie, but I am loving the tumblr experience of Venom. Here is my understanding of things based solely on internet reactions: […]

happy equinox!

I read a Vox article called 8 things to know about the first day of autumn, and it was great, because #8 is, “I clicked on this article accidentally and really just want a mind-blowing picture of the sun,” and that’s the kind of list I can get behind. So here is my own list […]

wait, really?

IMDb is always such a rabbit hole. I went in trying to figure out how to spell “Domhnall Gleeson,” and wound up learning the following: *Not only did he play both General Hux and Bill Weasley, he ALSO played Tim in the excellent movie “About Time.” (I now totally feel less bad about assuming that […]

too soon?

Sunday, September 9th, 2018

There is a definitely autumnal chill to the air this morning, so I absolutely understand the urge to suddenly surround ones self with pumpkins and sweaters. (I lit a candle yesterday! It has been MONTHS since even adding that tiny bit of heat to the apartment seemed like a good idea!) And in the interests […]

shopping on Labor Day weekend

Saturday, September 1st, 2018

I have such mixed feelings about Labor Day weekend sales. On the one hand, I am pretty excited that I’m going to get 25% off kitty litter today at the hardware store. That’s a great savings! On the other hand, the whole idea of Labor Day is that it’s supposed to give people who labor […]

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 […]
