@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) This article never appeared during my workday yesterday (or anything published after the Google Glass thing on the 12th). I must have been having cache problems.
@katiemcgillicuddy Hawks site/post is here. Lots of people doing good work in the comments too though.
@katiemcgillicuddy Beer: Nature's Painkiller! Bottoms up and internet hugs, pal.
@katiemcgillicuddy Yeah, congrats to Boston as a city, but fuck the Red Sox and especially John Farrell forever. (I actually like or don't mind a large number of their players but as a general entity and fandom, blerrrrrgh.)
@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) The Varlamov-Related Week On The Internet has been a rough reminder that sports culture/general human society are not welcoming to women. It was super cool that the guys who run the Blackhawks site I frequent came out hard against Varlamov and the general treatment of domestic violence in sports (they are super against the 'Hawks having Bobby Hull as an ambassador/at games for the same reason, which I also find pretty disgusting) but some of the comment wars that ensued ... certainly looking at some people differently. Dudes dragged false rape accusations into arguments. It was a bad time.
@katiemcgillicuddy AAAAAHHH HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY! Birthday weekend? You should drink 1) the tears of your enemies and 2) some good-ass bourbon (possibly in an Old Fashioned).
@capturethecastle that actually makes me more interested in listening to it! (have just become indifferent to AF over the years)
Really, really enjoyed this.
"at least you had heard of and/ or seen a book! That was enough for me. That has always been enough for me." <-- also how I feel about rec sports teammates
@katiechasm There was a (REALLY SMALL) study somewhat recently suggesting that people became more drunk when using artifically sweetened mixers vs full-sugar ones. From a co-author: Dennis L. Thombs, co-author of the latest study, noted that the stomach seems to treat sugar-sweetened beverages like food, which delays the stomach from emptying. "The best way to think about these effects is that sugar-sweetened alcohol mixers slow down the absorption of alcohol into [the] bloodstream. Artificially sweetened alcohol mixers do not really elevate alcohol intoxication. Rather, the lack of sugar simply allows the rate of alcohol absorption to occur without hindrance."
For your consideration etc.
This is like the version of "Hold On We're Going Home" I sing in the shower, but good.
@sandwiches ahhh those effects sound really scary and unpleasant! i hope the tiny sips strategy works for you.
