"(he also applied to be an astronaut every few years, but kept getting rejected)"
Awww... Bill. You, me, and a bunch of my colleagues have something in common.
@bevrockin Yeah, they kind of gross me out. Like, more than I'd like to admit. Also, I hate dirty counters. I want to take a clorox wipe to all of these.
@deepomega Also kinda sad that because of Audigier, Hardy's lumped in with Kenny "Von Dutch" Howard who was, by most accounts, kind of a racist
"Oh, my God, Biore launched pore strips at Lilith Fair."
AYUP. I got biore strips and a mix tape. We spent an intermission on the lawn of the CocaCola Starplex in Dallas cleaning our pores and ewwwwwwing at the gunk. The first Lilith Fair was WEIRD, man.
@StandardTuber Full disclosure, I am a cheerful atheist married to another atheist lapsed Catholic, BUT: I am told by practicing Catholics that the requirement for confession prior to taking communion has been softened and is no longer practiced at many churches.
The more you know!
@meetapossum HAHA, now I'm just picturing your friends all staring, befuddled, through a misshapen hole your friend dug in the wall to get away.
@Hellcat And when your spouse/SO/Friend is being all slowski about the goodbyes, you can resort to "LET'S GO ALREAAAADDDYYYYYY!"
@aphrabean A colleague of mine (a NASA employee) was cut from the very last selection round for this project. She was REALLY hoping to be selected as an alternate so she could just move to Hawaii for a couple of years but NOT actually have to be confined to a packet-food dome. I was super sad when she told me last spring that she'd been declined.
I grew up in Texas and I had NO idea as a kid that Juneteenth wasn't a huge deal everywhere. It was an ENORMOUS deal in Dallas.
Also, in unrelated news: I got married at the Ashton Villa (though NOT on it's famous balcony). It is a really lovely place.
@fabel It's okay, my brain was like "Giant banana?? what is happening here????"
