I'm Commander Shepard and this is my favorite site on the Citadel.
@chnellociraptor I also hate Fitz and love Mellie! Let's start a club!
@cuminafterall I also got NM! I'm OK with this, excepting perhaps the heat in the summers. Not that they measured for that.
@j-i-a Ah, I missed it! I've been bad about being here for the open threads since they moved to 5pm, I almost always forget to come back once I get home and the weekend gets going. Sadface!
If I ate pure rye/pure spelt bread plus reindeer meat plus fruit soup for breakfast every day
A FINN. I SMELL A FINN.
Or something quite like one, anyway.
40% watching TV shows on Hulu/Netflix instead of doing anything at home
10% Einstein Bros. bagel sandwich for breakfast
10% buying ben & jerry's just because
40% reading the 'pin/toast instead of working
My maternal grandfather got migraines, and my sister apparently inherited them. She gets them fairly regularly, and they always knock her out. Changes in the weather are her most frequent trigger. For me, I get them very, very infrequently, and they are always triggered by stress. I had one a few days after my oral comps for my MA, and I had one last Wednesday (my husband got laid off last Tuesday). I am thankful, knowing how frequently my sister gets them, that my own come infrequently. When they do, they kick the shit out of me. Light and sound sensitivity and eventual vomiting are things that no one enjoys.
On Which Name Is Weirder, Saxby Chambliss or Barkevious Mingo? The Answer May Tell You Whether or Not You're Racist
Ay ay ay. A friend of mine posted a link to that article on her facebook and the comments almost instantly got derailed by defensive white people getting mad that calling them racist is racist and "Just because I say a name is funny doesn't mean I'm racist!!!" and all sorts of car-wrecky stuff. What made it worse was the ringleader of the "how dare you"s was her mother, who proceeded to argue with a guy who has actually been discriminated against in this exact fashion about how it's not racist and she knows better because she's older than him. It was something else.
In any case, I've got a weird name. It's a weird white name, as it's Scandinavian, but here in the states people see it and assume all sorts of things. I've had job interviewers tell me they thought I'd be non-white more than once. The sad part is, the people that say that always look and sound relieved. :\
@RK Fire I do like that the women in the ad are doing things that aren't stereotypically ladyish -- I mean, you have some, like the lady with the baby, but then there's also a skateboarder and stuff. I appreciate that. More I appreciate sports apparel in appropriate colors in sizes that won't make me look like I bought a poncho in my team colors.
I'm just glad women's shirts come in actual team colors at all, considering just how much exists out there in pink cursivey crap with sports team names on them.
