more movie review thoughts on Solo

Thursday, May 31st, 2018

**SPOILERS** (But it’s a prequel? So it’s not like, a total surprise, right?) 1. I’m just going to state for the record that Val clearly faked her death* on the bridge, escaped the planet with Enfys Nest, and lived happily ever after. 2. Speaking of which, I spent the entire movie thinking they were saying […]

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 […]

movie review: Solo

Tuesday, May 29th, 2018

Very brief review: *I liked it! I thought perhaps I would not, since Han Solo is not a super likable character for me? *Which does not mean I did not have Some Issues with it. Key takeaway: *When Will The Droids Be Free???

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 […]

sometimes I just think ‘wow’

Sunday, May 27th, 2018

The future is amazing. Yesterday I shopped for clothing, pet supplies, and exercise equipment all from my computer, in my pajamas, while Josie the robot vacuum cleaner was noodling along in the other room. I used my phone to take a picture, search the internet, check the weather, play music, be a timer, a calculator, […]

caturday ramblings

Saturday, May 26th, 2018

One of the things in my life that I often find myself weirdly grateful for is my complete lack of “foodie”-ness. Some of the many benefits of having zero foodie qualities: *The free coffee at work tastes totally okay to me. *Chicken bacon? Close enough. *I had a snack bar for breakfast. It was fine. […]

grocery rec Friday

Friday, May 25th, 2018

That feeling when it’s grocery day, and the list only has two things on it: baking soda and snack bars. Thought #1: Yes! This is going to be the easiest trip ever! Thought #2: Wait. Probably I need more than that, right? Like food. Thought #3: Holiday weekend coming up. The store is going to […]

workaday Wednesday

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018

I already posted about work once this week, so this is more about adulting in general. Because can I just say, being an adult is so, so much easier than being a kid. Like, obviously that’s not true in every single situation ever, but on Monday I overheard this conversation (at work, even, so it […]


Tuesday, May 22nd, 2018

Waaaaaay back in college I did a thing called Leadershape, which google tells me is a commonly used word to describe a variety of group-skills based programs. The one I did was a week, and I mostly remember all the vegans being upset that the cooks kept putting butter on the vegetables. (Today I am […]
