@laurel Um, I totally took a class with Jessica Chalmers in college. She is fantastic. Seriously, it seems impossible that you and I don't know each other in real life sometimes!

On Kids: Worth It? and Game Day Etiquette

@laurel Ah I am probably coming back to this waaaay too late, but I had to attend several lectures yesterday... anyway, I forgive your Colts-loving ways, but I'm actually old enough to remember the whole leaving-in-the-middle-of-the-night thing. Baltimore has always been a very football-oriented town (don't believe those who think we bleed for the Orioles; they're only good for the fun of yelling "O!" really loud during the Star Spangled Banner), and even though I was tiny when that happened, I still remember the fallout. The Ravens are just wholeheartedly, impossibly loved in Bmo, especially because they're kind of scrappy and thuggish, just like Baltimorons. In fact, please enjoy this thoroughly crappy song about it, which kind of captures Baltimore's annoying yet endearing DIY aesthetic:

But it's hard for me to imagine watching without that investment, because it's so tied to the city where I grew up, that I love. So I am now going to recommend that you cheer for the Ravens! But that doesn't solve your weird market problem-- totally have that since moving to the Midwest for school. The Cowboys and the Broncos really do suck, so I feel your pain. Let's just watch football together and express our feelings!

@laurel Pedicure Quarter! The saddest quarter of all!

It's tough being a Baltimore fan trapped in Green Bay land, but at least there are a few others around. Oh my god, Sunday was amazing. My favorite part, though, was Ray Lewis explaining at the end of the game how JUST THE NIGHT BEFORE he had told Torrey Smith to position himself to receive god's blessings. Oh Ray. Who's your team?

@laurel An excellent solution. Man, if someone told me I couldn't watch a Baltimore-Pittsburgh game, I don't think I'd want to marry that person. Granted, I'm from a football family where text messages and excited calls are flying across the country when the Ravens are playing.

@figwiggin Oh my god, I had no idea Satoshi Kon died! This is really sad, even though the news is a year old... he was quite a visionary.

@D.@twitter Oh god, Martyrs, oh god oh god. I can sit through a lot, but I actually didn't make it all the way through (but of course read everything that happens on the internet).

@figwiggin Not creepy, but Tokyo Godfathers is one of my favorites of his!
