bluetooth update

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

The whole thing was kind of anti-climactic, actually. Turns out that this is one of the more computer-like functions in a car, so it’s also more intuitive (and forgiving) than, say, figuring out how to turn off the “you need an oil change” light. I managed the whole setup during my lunch break on Monday, […]

memorable quote Monday

Monday, June 29th, 2015

(When I went looking for this line, I had no idea this was the fic it was in. Not unusual.) Both Feet On The Ground, by AndreaLyn Inception fic — it’s that one where Arthur and Eames get married and don’t tell anyone, although most people figure it out eventually. This is the line that […]

rainy sunday

Sunday, June 28th, 2015

Still one of my favorite poems to revisit, re-read, and enjoy again: Art is a facebook status about your winter break by b.e. fitzgerald I swear to every heaven ever imagined, if I hear one more dead-eyed hipster tell me that art is dead, I will personally summon Shakespeare from the grave so he can […]

once again baffled by my car

Saturday, June 27th, 2015

Starting July 1st, my state has a new hands-free driving law thing going into effect. (So many jokes about driving with your knees, so many. Really it’s about not using any devices in your car that require data entry, though.) It’s come up at work a couple times, and there was a whole discussion about […]

fic rec Friday

Friday, June 26th, 2015

a thing that wants, by magdaliny I love all of the domestic details of this one, and how much do I want for Natasha and Bucky and Steve to get to be friends and do awesome non-world-saving stuff? SO MUCH. And of course there’s this: “If you’ll excuse me for ten minutes,” Hill says, “I […]

why, netflix, why?

Thursday, June 25th, 2015

I’m signed up for the 2 dvds per month plan on netflix. Sounds simple, right? It would be, except netflix sometimes sends a third dvd FOR NO APPARENT REASON. I mean, on the one hand it feels crazy to get fired up about this, because hey — extra dvd! Yay! But on the other hand, […]

workaday Wednesday

TEAM BUILDING UPDATE! (How glad am I that I’m not in charge of planning our team building events? 1000000% glad!) This just in: we will NOT be attending a movie this Friday, of either the ‘post-apocalyptic desert car chase’ or ‘rawr dinosaurs’ variety. A couple people had scheduling issues, and then one person pointed out […]

why am I still laughing?

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015

It turns out I managed to reblog an almost identical gifset on tumblr twice in the last couple days, which I would feel bad about except I am still laughing every time I see it. *The gifset *The youtube clip from JLU “I have no idea who this is” can now take its place in […]

memorable quote Monday

Monday, June 22nd, 2015

I went looking for a different fic, found this one, couldn’t resist re-reading it at 8 am on a Monday morning. Nothing like reading about winter Solstice in Vermont when it’s just past summer Solstice in New Hampshire! “We aren’t a team like you two aren’t dating,” she says, glancing between Eames and Arthur. “Just […]

Happy Fathers Day!
