On Talking to Heather Doney and Rachel Coleman About Child Abuse, the Quiverfull Movement and Homeschooling Policy Reform

@TenyaLuna
I was homeschooled up until 9th grade in a portfolio/standardized testing state and it was great to have that system in place. My mom is not a certified teacher you know and there were times where classroom experience would have made up for a lot, like lesson plans and supplementary material for textbooks was really lacking. My experience with standardized tests was never bad and it made taking them again in school really easy! I've always been one of those 'good at tests' kind of people, the SATs did not make me nervous at all, and I really credit that to having had to take some form of the SAT from 2nd grade on up.
Plus because of the portfolio, which was really photo heavy from all the 'field trips' we took to museums and cultural sites, my pictures from when I was a kid are really adorably nerdy. There are so many pictures of small me posing in front of historical plaques it's awesome ^_^

On Qreamed Quorn

@WILLOWW
Augh why can't it make me hallucinate cool things like all over awesome '60's lab discoveries. Then at least I could have been fine with my bowels hating me.

On Qreamed Quorn

I am one of those 3.5% who get horribly sick to their stomach after eating Quorn, which is weird, because it's made out of mycoprotein, and I have no problem with mushrooms usually.

On Win a Jim Behrle Valentine

I sent my grandmother a happy birthday card, and bought my roommate some cheese from the fancy cheese store (to replace all the candy I ate over the weekend that is hers.).

A Person of Love Interest is moving back to town imminently, and I am so anxious to see them! Even though I have been playing it very cool we have probably been in touch more in the last two months than the whole entire previous year that he lived in my city.
Dude move back now so I can furtively ping you for signs of interest! Augh.

On Things We Know for Sure About Marilyn Monroe

@aliceandstuff
It's like this: People ask why I dont wear heels more often, I will always get carded, burly men will always be attracted to me, and upon questioning admit that they like to 'feel protective' over petite women. I get drunk a lot more quickly, and all my coworkers assume this is my first job out of college. Also, everything, pants, dresses, skirts, always awkwardly long on me. #problems.

Plantain chips are the best. They just are. Banana chips don't do it for me anymore.

Ahhh that is a good one. My ex was also a Service Industry Dude and he would get stupid pouty about me not having Thursdays off with him so I'm really sensitive about the 'ah but you work!' comments.

@JessicaLovejoy I wish these banana chips were plantain chips.

Summer of Lust check in!
I spent most of the week forgetting what day it is, and leaving my house for work 20 minutes late.

In other news, is it like 'a thing' for service industry dudes to try and shame ladies (me) for having a full time job and therefore not being available for midafternoon jaunts? Why do they do that.
