I wear a sun hat to the farmers market. Deal. And for my next trick, I will re-pot plants and make fruit and yogurt popsicles and maaaaaaybe start brewing my first kombucha. My wife and daughter are fine.
Just realized I don’t know what the next splinter-getting step is after foot-soaking.
And for my next trick I will sit on the closed toilet with my feet in a tub of warm water while I read final papers for my last science writing class workshop tomorrow because the splinter in my toe that I thought was gone is still bothering me and ungettable. I will keep sneezing because my pajamas are covered in cat hair and because I am generally allergic to my entire apartment.
Getting myself psyched up - i.e. sleepy - for my first ever red-eye. Right before my first-ever day teaching writing. Lucky for us, if there’s one thing I’m good at, it’s falling asleep during daylight.
Hey guys I’m at SETIcon and haven’t had a lot of internet or time to tumbl, but I did want to tell you, because it has to do with you, tumblr, that on my plane ride out here, one of the movies was The Vow, and I didn’t watch it, except for like two five-minute bits, but one of them included the scene when Channing Tatum takes out the laundry shirtless while eating a slice of...
I have the head now of myself and am man enough for a woman; marriage is but a...– Mary Frith (aka Moll), from The Roaring Girl, by Thomas Middleton and Thomas Dekker (via wwnorton) Faaaaaaaaaavorite play. It’s got a hot mess of a b-plot, but Moll Frith is a 16th-Century cross-dressing sword-fighting badass motherfucking woman. And she makes some good dick jokes too.
The library cafe closes at 2 during the summer. I forgot this and went to get a fork for my lunch around 3. Oh well, and eating cold chicken and grilled vegetables with my fingers isn’t the worst thing. It’s dipping the stuff in zucchini hummus (THIS IS SO GOOD GO MAKE THIS) that gets tricky. Not that I’m not doing it. I’m scooping hummus mush onto things with my fingers,...
All these old pictures of people’s dads for fathers day remind me of when my mom and I were flipping through an old photo album once - I was maybe ten or twelve - and she had to swoop in and pull out an old picture of my dad because he was wearing shorts and sitting facing the camera and it was indecent. Thanks, 80s fashion. Happy fathers day.
I got the last piece of Spanish omelette at the coffee place this morning - the last bite was full of artichoke heart - and Tanner had a galette with apples and cherries inside. The coffee shop was full of babies and kids and there was a little apricot poodle chillin outside. Tanner was facing the window and kept seeing people run into people they knew, walking in opposite directions and stopping...
marissalg answered your question: Michael Ondaatje, “The Cinnamon Peeler” YUP Probably true. But I did get it from the resources they give us for the program. Also in the resources, the scene from Closer that ends thusly: Larry: What does it taste like? Anna: It tastes like you but sweeter. Larry: THAT’S the spirit. Thank you. Thank you for your honesty. Now fuck off and...

I’m heading up to CT to spend the day with two friends whose wedding I’m officiating at the end of the summer. We’re gonna talk some ceremony today, so I googled “wedding officiate ceremony script” or something and opened up a bunch of tabs on my laptop before I left. I was just looking at them on the subway, and I teared up. I mean, it got real dusty on that A...

dailypupdate: Now that Paisley has figured out how to jump over it both from the side AND the back, sitting on our couch now comes with the terrifying risk of leaping dog. Consider yourself warned. I’m seeing this puppy - and these PEOPLE - and this house - and CONNECTICUT - on Monday!

glittermixed: jaimealyse: Working on my wee personal website, writing a review for a website that wants an author photo. I mean, I don’t think I’m at the point in my life where I should have an Author Photo. But I really have to do something about this. What my sister neglected to tell you all is that she is 17 in this photo. It was taken in 2000. My sister just made me lol in the...
