On a different subject, it's always nice to bond with loved ones over enjoyment of the same TV shows:

Why is it that I'm too stupid to feel the gravity of the situation I'm in until after bad shit happens? It's like I don't care anymore...

They finally published a scientific paper I was interviewed for! Yay!

They had too few correspondents for it to be even remotely representative though. Booh.

Not helped by the fact that everyone who responded to the initial call for people willing to be interviewed were highly educated, so even less representative. Booooooh.

But still, there seems to be a high interest in the problems surrounding people like me also from our perspective, judging from the request for data for master thesises and such so yay?

But they all run in to the same problem that people are rightfully afraid of partaking in interviews, so they never obtain enough participants to make really significant conclusions. Booooh.

I'm also disappointed in reading how other people responded to the questionnaire, assuming they were recruited from the same forum as I was. Luckily a minority (something like 20%), but still, currently parsing some disappointed feels :/

You know you've been watching Project Runway too long when you hear about Emma Watson's dress for the Met gala being made out of plastic bottles and what you imagine is plastic bottles, hung on twine, strung around her body in the shape of a dress. But what she really wore is this:

Zynga is now worth less as a company than the building they occupy.

I wonder, have they asked any of their friends for help improving their net worth?

“I’m not sure what’s more ridiculous now: the outrageous prices of the SF housing market or the idea that anyone still enjoys playing Farmville.”

I enjoyed Farmville quite a lot, back when it first came out. Before they changed it so that you basically had to be a hardcore Farmville gamer to get anything out of it. It was a lot of fun to plant crops when I got to work in the morning, harvest them at lunch, and set up another batch for later in the day. I enjoyed getting mastery level at each crop. But then they started making the game so you had to check it constantly.

I miss early Farmville. And I liked the song. Smile

And he was filming a documentary at the Great Barrier Reef just last fall! And he was involved in more projects last year than many popular movie stars! I was always grateful to him for inspiring me to love nature, but I also admire the man's work ethic.

Thoughts while at the eye doctor today.

While waiting in the check-in line:
Dude. Back up two steps. You are standing way too close. I can literally feel you breathing on me. Back up, personal space violater!

While waiting in the dilation area:
Hey, dude, that mom doesn't want to talk to you. You're not funny like you think you are. You're not excused because you're old. You're taking advantage of her trapped nature while she sits here waiting for her 8 year old to come back. You're trying to take advantage of that highly abused "respect your elders" thing. She is doing stereotypical, leave-me-alone "mm-hmm" responses while angled away from you and reading her phone while watching for her son. It's not her job to entertain you because you're bored. FFS.

Both of these were old (60s-70s), white men.


ETA: I was driving out of the parking lot behind the second guy. He was turning left, without any turn signal on. Typical obliviousness to common courtesy.

If rolling stones are supposed to gather no moss, why does moving around this much make me feel so heavy instead of light?

Random encounter this morning with the fanciest motherfucking pigeon I've ever seen in my life. Where did it get those feet. This is too fancy to just be some wild pigeon. THOSE FEET Run in circles flail



UPDATE: Feetpigeon still hanging out at food court, now enjoying watching OTHER people marvel at/take photos of Feetpigeon

Feetpigeon is very fancy indeed! Feral pigeons are descended from domestic ones and I think regularly breed with them, so this might just be a marvel of recessive genes! Either way, Lovestruck .

If you listen to all of Enrique Iglesias' albums in order they're like an opera version of Faust and Pitbull is the devil.

I was not expecting my 21-month-old to ask me what her privates are called. I suppose I should have been, though, since she's in a phase where she's pointing to other body parts and saying or asking what they're called. First of many unprepared mom-moments, I'm sure.

Uh, hey there, Store. I can't say I mind that you're trying to play fresher Muzak rather than 20-year-old soft rock Muzak, especially given that I have to listen to this shit all day, but "I Took a Pill in Ibiza" is maybe not a great choice for department store listening if any of the customers ever bother to pay attention to the lyrics.

I immensely enjoy midnight train rides. Returned from a concert and I got roped into a discussion on what to Whatsapp a dude in order to get him to do the booty call at a dudette's place instead of the other way around, and some of the horrible lines I suggested were actually used.

There are just so many reasons to love and/or lol at this photo, but I'm gonna choose to love it because I'm imagining that M'Lady Fedora is actually this girl's dream husbando.
