I'm a CS undergrad. I like books and computers.
@SarahP My mother is super into weeding. I used to be SO EMBARRASSED when she'd insist on pulling a few weeds in the flower beds outside my grade school.
@or Elsa! Someday I want to have the presence of mine to yell "My grandmother died!" at one of those "smile, sweetheart"-spewing asshats.
No need to mention that my grandmother didn't die recently...
@OhMyGoshYouGuys I refer to applying makeup as "putting on the face that I keep in a jar by the door" and now this guy is sullying it.
@lora.bee I need to learn how to eat with chopsticks. I could eat and write code at the same time!
On The Cora Crawleys of the Gilded Age: "As fast as our honorable, hardworking men earn money their daughters toss it across the ocean"
@tiny bookbot And it's on Project Gutenberg! For free, in a variety of formats! Also I love your name. It's so entirely appropriate for recommending books.
I try never to miss an opportunity to plug Project Gutenberg. Disclaimer: I'm not affiliated with them except as an occasional volunteer proofreader.
On We Did It!
@leon s A couple-three years ago, I determined that I'd spend 0.5% of my entire life up to that point playing games on my Steam account.
On Lionel Shriver on obesity and the surplus of attractive characters in fiction: "The solution is to get a grip and put human beauty in perspective"
@pollypeachum A few months ago a family member sent around one of Fox News's young-people-are-ruining-everything articles. I was pissed off enough to hit reply-all and said something like "I didn't not kill myself when I had depression so I could hear that there's nothing to live for now."
My super-awesome aunt/godmother--who is almost 70 years old, which is old enough to know whether or not it gets better--replied to me and said that she's sure I'm going to lead an interesting and fabulous life. So hell yeah, I'm gonna get on that. As soon as I finish college.
My e-reader is named HEDY LAMARR. The internal storage is named HEDY, and the microSD card is named LAMARR.
Just thought I'd share. Most of my other devices have names, too.
@Redheads have even more fun That's three votes for Persuasion. I'll read it first :)
@nothingcutesy Thank you! I'm off to add to my electronic library.
I like the idea of reading in a British accent and then getting stuck with a British mental voice. I'm giggling now
