choire replied to your post: I’m flying to Florida tomorrow and I decided to be healthy and responsible and make lunch for the plane - chicken and brussels sprouts and sweet potato fries, all tasty things cold - but it turns out that I was defrosting *two* chicken legs, so I emailed my flying companions to see if anyone wanted some for plane lunch, and they were all like, nope!, and I got...

Bacon-wrapped dates are in the oven. Deviled eggs are in the fridge. Also in the fridge are slices of cucumber with cream cheese & a piece of smoked salmon, which is a thing I made up that I hope is good.
Last time friends came over to watch Downton Abbey it was the Sunday after Thanksgiving, and I was like, what will I do with this leftover cranberry sauce? So I baked it on top of a wedge of brie, obvs. And then guacamole and little crudités and chips happened. And then today they’re coming over for part two and I am making three different kinds of hors d’oeuvres - like, straight-up...

The theatre I used to work at sent me a holiday card. It is signed by two people, of a 15-person (or so) office. Only one of whom worked there when I did. None of whom are the five or so people I directly worked with, including my then-boss, with whom I was a two-person department for three and a half years. This is more of a fuck-you than no card at all, right? Merry merry.

I’m going through my books from last semester to choose which to try to sell back, and to erase my marks and underlines from those. I didn’t do any sort of job of keeping my read books together, so I’m rescuing them from piles next to my bed and on my desk. But some are missing, and the only reason I know this is that I haven’t gotten to the one with margins full of...
I have officially now talked myself into an astronomy course that requires a year of calculus-based physics, which I most certainly do not have! I have to take it pass/fail anyway, and the professor suggest that for assignments that require more specialized math and physics, maybe they can give me ‘essay’ questions. Yes okay! He did suggest that I brush up on Newtonian physics, force...
Wait, what’s that, hindsight? What do you say? Two bowls of rice krispies is neither a good snack nor a good way to procrastinate? I’m sorry, I can’t hear you over the sugar-induced lightheadedness and regret!

I may have gone a little overboard with today’s sickday lunch - scrambled eggs w/ spinach, bacon, sweet potato ovenfries - I even made a dipping sauce for the fries that I saw on the internet once - but it seems less extravagant when you understand that I wanted to make a hearty lunch so I’d have the energy to go buy Rice Krispies across the street later.
Netflix should have a Sick Day queue, movies you like to keep handy for streaming on days like today. Mine: Gosford Park Elizabeth Bright Young Things (sadly DVD-only) Doctor Who That’s a weird little list, isn’t it. Or completely, totally obvious.
The fifth day of being sick is the one where you eat soup and cookies all day, right?
Have people, people ten years or so in the past, already sufficiently discussed the awfulness of Donna Noble’s wedding dress?
liquidiousfleshbag asked: There is the whole gag reel for that movie! I think it's all up on YouTube, I have the dvd because I'm a giant shameful Trekkie. BUT IT IS ALL SO FUNNY AND GREAT.

I was supposed to do lots of outside-the-house things today, but I feel oncoming-cold crappy, so I cancelled, and then I almost puked at the laundromat, so that’s probably a good thing. But I really like plans, and even though *I* changed all of them, I still don’t really know what to do. I just realized I’ve had Bob Costas on the Daily Show paused on my TV for like a solid...
Feel a cold coming on —> chug tea with lemon —> almost puke at the laundromat. I am really committed to eating healthier than I have been since school started, but today I will be eating rice krispies and soup and that will have to be okay.
I’m reading Mary Roach’s Stiff, and while I’m realizing that she’s not a model for my eventual science writing, there is something to be learned from a woman who can get from crash test dummies to the shape of a penis is during missionary-position sex* in one footnote. *”boomerang-shaped”
