@Brunhilde Future-Mr. and I have developed a terrible habit of finishing almost an entire bottle of interesting booze but leaving appx one shot, for no apparent reason other than "but then it will be TRULY DEAD". Pastis, Campari, Pimm's, Luxardo. We have a very extensive illusory bar. Gin & whiskey have a half-life of about 5 minutes tho.
@Beaker I'm a postdoc and am waffling between trying to get into the writing/editing game and hoping for a mysterious rich distant relative to die and leave me $$$$.
My science motto is a play on that Vonnegut quote that I made up
When I was 3, I was obsessed with the word "indubitably" and used it in response to all relevant yes/no questions, except about half the time I pronounced it "indububably".
@Amphora As a distraction from that article, for an embarrassingly long time I thought "Glaswegian" was a sub-genre of music, like a kind of twee-tinkly Nordic indie pop.
Guys I wrote my first thing for The Toast! It's about licorice. Sorry if I'm being gross & self-promotion-y but I'm just v excited about it ):
@olivebee Instead of cooking kale, mush it up in a Ziploc with a little bit of olive oil, lemon juice, and salt, and leave it in the refrigerator overnight (it generally lasts abt 4 days before getting yellowy but I normally eat it all before that happens anyway). You get the same softening effect as sauteéing or blanching without any smelliness!
@honey cowl Rebuttle (v): To buttle again. Alfred did a frightful job seeing Mrs. Brougham in so he was obliged to rebuttle.
@frigwiggin Tumblr is not letting me follow people rn (??) but I'm mollyculetheory.tumblr.com
Although I am not pregnant, nor plan to be, I went through all of the non-numbered train stations I pass through daily in my head in a near panic to see what my non-child would be called if I gave birth in one. Most of them are pretty okay! Bedford, Lorimer, Graham, Montrose, Morgan, Jefferson. Avoid New Lots Avenue, however.
On Thank You So Much For Being With Me Tonight to Celebrate My Twenty-Five-And-Twelve-Month Birthday
@JessicaLovejoy Yes, I am 25 and 66 months and I don't necessarily have my shit together but I *have* learned not to publish pieces on the internet about how it's so hard to get my shit together aren't I relatable and cute? so there's that.
