More daft puns than Daft Punk
@garli Maybe a biochemist can answer that question fully. I'm not one, but I do know that vitamin D helps your body absorb calcium and magnesium. Few foods have significant levels of vitamin D, so if you don't get out in the sun much, a D supplement is helpful.
On a different note, if healthy, unprocessed foods high in vitamins and minerals have the unfortunate side effect of making you shit your brains out, you're probably not getting the nutrients you need from them! If you're on an IBD-friendly diet of, like, oatmeal, chicken breast and avocados, a multivitamin is useful.
To me you are perfect
Have you seen these photos of Albania's sworn virgins?
Also if you are still casting around for a NaNoWriMo idea, you could do worse than "sworn virgin adventure novel." Just let me read it when you're done, k?
@adorable-eggplant I'm also thinking about applying to grad school after 4 years in the workforce, but I'm apprehensive about recommendations... Has anyone had a professor write them a recommendation who has retired since they taught you? Or have you approached professors about recommendations after a few years incommunicado?
30% critically acclaimed foreign dramas that look really depressing
30% TV series I added during the shutdown and stopped watching when it ended
20% comfort movies/miniseries for when my husband's not home
10% movies I added because something about them is ridiculous (She's All That, ghostwritten by M. Night Shyamalan; Flashdance; Pizza My Heart)
5% critically acclaimed silent movies my husband added after reading Francois Truffaut's interviews with Alfred Hitchcock
5% Asian thrillers & horror movies
@I'm Right on Top of that, Rose No history of depression, but come to think of it, I haven't seen the sun since Wednesday afternoon. Maybe I need a light box? At least to give me the energy/motivation to get out in the actual sun more often.
I've been in a funk for the past month or so. Mood-wise I've been down, but I'm able to function normally, but everything seems to take a lot more effort. I've been taking my Vitamin D, exercising, eating well, trying to get enough sleep... what am I missing? Any suggestions?
@Beaks Do you have button-front shirts? Lately I am ALL ABOUT the shirt buttoned all the way to the collar with a necklace tucked under the collar. I'm also broad-shouldered and this may accentuate that? BUT I don't care because I think it looks so cool.
Or just let it take over your body. If people give you side-eye, just tell them you're bringing back the breastplate.
Yeah, October sucked balls and November's been no better so far (all 15 hours of it). I'm certain the reason is astronomical rather than astrological. The sun's not up when I leave for work anymore! This makes my whole day awful.

I don't know, I'm as eat-the-rich as anybody else, but wake me up when they start writing about the price tag of the Vegas-casinos-clubbing-and-strippers bachelor weekend... the "women are irrational about friends and weddings and money!" angle is kind of played out, no?
