There are many strange office phenomenons, but perhaps one of the strangest is the office baby shower. (At least where I work. It’s always possible that we are an outlier and that other people have figured out how to throw an office baby shower in a non-awkward way.) Anyway, the last time one of these […]

workaday Wednesday

Wednesday, August 30th, 2017

You know those days when you’re just like: ‘AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!’ (But you go to work anyway, because the screaming will maybe seem less out of place there.) In other news: ‘AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!’

hiking update

Tuesday, August 29th, 2017

Somehow, without really noticing or setting out to do so, I have ended up with multiple adventures in the same year. Next up is the September hike, which will hopefully be awesome. Weather’s been a little extra interesting this summer, so it’s a bit of a toss-up whether we’ll be hot or cold (or both!). […]

Shadowhunters fandom, r u ok? I only ask because I’ve recently been reading some fic (thanks blueMeridian!) and it seems to be approximately 90% ‘everyone is happy and gets enough sleep and eats pancakes.’ Which is totally up my alley and awesome, but I worry your show isn’t treating you right. In light of that, […]

wildly unprepared but optimistic anyway

Sunday, August 27th, 2017

I’m headed out this morning for a “practice hike” in preparation for my September overnight hiking trip. Things that I have going for me: 1. lots of snacks (Also, I’m going to a park I’m relatively familiar with — I’ve done all the hiking before, just never in the same day. It’s a level up […]

Of course, one of the best parts of any trip is coming home! Happy Caturday!

fic rec Friday

Friday, August 25th, 2017

Found this one in my ‘Saved For Later’ history in AO3. One of those ‘post-Cap2, pre-everything-else’ fics that envisions a happier MCU where people nap in puppy piles and visit IHOP for breakfast. The Gift Horse, by fartherfaster Sam and Darcy are formally introduced for the first time. Sam says “formally” with some flexibility. And […]

back to work Thursday

Time to go back to work for two days! [PS: You know what’s the most annoying thing about a touchpad that’s 7 years old? The on-again off-again ability to click and drag. I mean, that’s probably why I’m so patient with my work computer being slow, so — bright side!] I cleared out some of […]

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. […]
