I am so tired and my whole body aches and I have to close tonight with my least favorite coworker (most hated might be a more accurate title) and one that I like okay but is slower than molasses (last night we started cleaning before 11; we didn’t get out until 2, usually I can finish by 15 after close) and some new kid. I don’t even want money why can’t I just be a beetle or a microbe or something
also I’m watching Sam play Assassin’s Creed and it doesn’t make sense that when you fight five guards four of them just stand there and wait for you to kill the first one before they step in one at a time to be killed just the same way. This is why I can’t play video games.
guys what do I do I’ve already made a whole pound of pesto and I still have all the basil from that last picture oh my god even I can’t eat that much pesto that is literally enough pesto to drown my entire family in, like I could actually kill people with the amount of basil I have
they couldn’t hide forever. We went kayaking this morning out to the island in Emerald Bay and all around there. We saw so many osprey nests, and even an osprey sitting on its eggs, and some eggshells on the ground.
“The belief that female sexual expression is uniquely dehumanizing is a double standard, no matter how much you dress it up in feminist language. Instead of condemning young women for the length of their skirts, why not use that energy for condemning anyone who would think that a woman is lesser-than because she wears a miniskirt?”—Amanda Marcotte (via feminismduh)
my cousin was looking at her phone and talking to her boyfriend, when she said, “Look, this is funny, it says ‘Vegetarian is an old indian word for bad hunter.’ Do you think that’s true?” A few minutes later she put her phone down and remarked that she couldn’t find anything that proved that, but she still thought it was true. This girl is about to start school as a mechanical engineer; she’s really smart. I don’t understand.
“It would not be hard at all to make higher education completely free in the USA. It accounts for not quite 2% of GDP. The personal share, about 1% of GDP, is a third of the income of the richest 10,000 households in the U.S., or three months of Pentagon spending. It’s less than four months of what we waste on administrative costs by not having a single-payer health care finance system. But introduce such a proposal into an election campaign and you would be regarded as suicidally insane.”—“How Much Does College Cost, and Why?,”Left Business Observer (via andrewfm)
“If I can’t say the word vagina, why are we legislating vaginas? What language should I use?”—Michigan state Representative Lisa Brownwonders why she was prohibited from using the medically correct term for her vajayjay on the House floor. (via washingtonpoststyle)
but I was like fuck it, fuck being tourist-y, I need to see Prometheus. And I did, and it was beautiful, and I dragged my entire family along, and got into an argument with my uncle over what constitutes science fiction. It was fun.
Also today I toured a winery and ate In-n-Out for the first time, so that was cool. Our very attractive tour guide kept saying his tour guide things and I just kept making them into pick-up lines, like, “Yes, the Rosé has skin contact for 24 hours,” and I was like “Baby we can have skin contact for 24 hours,” and no one was around to appreciate my bad jokes.
