Testing out the Snapchat #spectacles before the shoot in #LA. Pretty decent quality, much better framerate than I expected. It's a snazzy idea, I'll just never get over how ugly they are 😂 #WonkaVision #videoproduction #worktrip

One of my favorite John Oliver quotes. Here's the video:

We (being humans, specifically the UK) actually had a lottery that involved asking whether -8 is larger than -6. They shut it down because people didn't know >_<

"The Cool Cash game - launched on Monday - was taken out of shops yesterday after some players failed to grasp whether or not they had won. "

"But the concept of comparing negative numbers proved too difficult for some Camelot received dozens of complaints on the first day from players who could not understand how, for example, -5 is higher than -6."

When we decided to just walk to the shoot because our Uber drivers kept disappearing from existence 😂 It was so nice out! Just before it started pouring raining for days. #la #videoproduction #videoshoot #bobafett

So like.... #VirginAmerica is pretty awesome. Complimentary alcohol, snazzy screens, free booze, a crazy remote with a full keyboard on the other side, free beer and wine, video games, TV shows, included alcohol, a cool seat-to-seat chat so you can socialize with the person sitting next to you, and sweet sex lights in case you want to.... take a nap.... Oh and did I mention there was complimentary beer and wine? Heineken but eh, it worked. 🍻 🛫 #lax #beer #worktrip #hashtag #lolzies

I don’t circle people with empty profiles. If I can’t get an idea of who you are or what you’re interested in, I can not place you into a circle. 

If you are not in my circles but you are notifying me of your posts, you will be blocked. 

I really only have six circles you could end up in

Gallifrey (for Doctor Who fans)
Spoilers (for Doctor Who fans who watch new episodes as they air)
Droidz (for Android users)
VIP (for my favorite people who post the best stuff) 
VVIP (for my most favorite people whose posts I want a notification for)
Acquaintances (for everyone else)

….I’m working on being a bit more specific because that acquaintances circle is quite large.

I have no interest in “drama” or conflict. If you are disrespectful I’ll uncircle you or end up blocking you because I don’t care to see that again. Debates are fine but when it feels hostile I'll probably just remove/block you. There are more important things to give my attention to. 

I like randomness. If I say something that doesn’t make sense, it probably wasn’t supposed to. 

(you may not want to circle me if these things are important to you since you may not like my opinions of them and I really don't care to hear you complain about my opinions of these things)

  • Apple (the company)
  • Religion
  • Dogs
  • Rap, Hip-Hop, etc
  • Country Music
  • Smoking
  • Drugs
  • Violence
  • Racism
  • Sexism
  • "Reality" shows
  • Sports

I am an introvert, but don't believe the myths

My favorite sushi place in town. I've been going here for years. It's quite a drive for me, and I pass dozens of other sushi places along the way, but it's well worth it!

Food was fantastic! I ordered a steak shawarma wrap and have already planned on going back tomorrow. I will definitely be going here more often. I only wish they had a bigger place. It was pretty cramped in there.

I've been going here for a couple of years now and the doctors have always been very friendly and helpful. For my first two or three visits I had two of the male doctors but then I was moved to Dr. Linda Rosenberg and she's been my doctor for several months. She is very friendly, informative and comfortable to talk to. They are very good with calling and reminding you about your appointments but if you need to get lab work done make sure they mail you the forms you're supposed to take with you. I've had two visits that have required lab work to be done before my visit and they have forgotten to send me my paperwork for labs. Not a big deal, I've just had to reschedule my follow-up appointment so I can make sure and have my labs done two weeks prior.
