On Tudor PoC

I thought that was a picture of Tuvok for MANY seconds.

On What My Mom Wishes I Was Blogging About

@Julie the T Oh my god my mom is also a longtime alto, but she usually says when the next social gathering is (this is about 90% brunches unless it's something with the whole choir), whose house it is at, and what neighborhood that is in (you know that one across the street from the lake?).

On Reasons Why Everyone is Engaged But Me: A Sampling

@splendorofmorgan I love that kind of thing!! I had a conversation once that went like this:

Table orders a pitcher of beer; waiter comes back and says "hey guys, it's going just a minute, we're switching the keg"
After he leaves, a friend says "why doesn't he just get it out of the tap?"
"Well the keg is gone"
"Yeah but he can just get it from the tap though"
"................................where do you think the beer in the tap comes from?"

Turned out she had no idea that there were kegs under taps and had never thought about where the beer came from. Pipes like water or enormous tanks like a gas station??

On Reasons Why Everyone is Engaged But Me: A Sampling

"I have loved more than one person at the same time with a folly and greed that now takes my breath away."

TOO CLOSE TO HOME!! God, 19 year old me was terrible.

On "You can’t mourn for the little boy he once was. You can’t fool yourself.”

Interesting! I think about this kind of thing a lot--a dude I grew up with is in prison for murdering his girlfriend. It's hard to think about.

On Jungle, "Busy Earnin'"

"if we've got to look at words like "normcore" we gotta get more dance videos out of it."

From your lips to the ears of whoever is in charge of music videos these days, Jia.

On Friday Open Thread

@adorable-eggplant I was wondering the same thing about a brand new language. I was thinking about Spanish (aka the most useful language) but I have, like, Sesame Street Spanish and no more. Maybe that's enough to get a foothold in the method. I've always wanted to try Arabic and I'm sure the 0% knowledge and different alphabet would make this method impossible.

@Miss Maszkerádi My husband and I have been using condoms for like 13 years now, no babies--they totally work and guys will totally use them (and, like everybody else said, if they won't kick em to the curb).
