I'm imagining that I'm an alien sociologist while I watch Trump-ette speak. I know that's probably not the most healthy coping mechanism, but I think it's the only way I'm going to survive this election season with my sanity marginally intact.

It's time for my obligatory biannual "I never could get the hang of Thursdays" post.

"S/he will beg you for advice, your reply will be concise, s/he will listen very nicely, then go out and do precisely what s/he wants."

Or: the internet, as prefigured by Lerner and Loewe.

Yo. +C Steen, yes, but they're using the wrong pot.

The only valid way to make coffee is with a french press. Obv iously.

Dorothy Sayers, ma homegirl. She didn't like Turkish Delight either:

"Bunter... proffered a box of that equally nauseating mess called Turkish Delight, which not only gluts the palate and glues the teeth, but also smothers the consumer in a floury cloud of white sugar..."

It is referred to elsewhere as "that disgusting sweetmeat."

You go girl.

...in honor of St. Patrick's Day.

This is one of those rare circumstances where I have the opportunity to be both deeply offensive and make a Dune reference. My life is complete.

More or less. Sorry. You're too young to understand how the world works. Do not worry. Yes, the Bible an interesting historical book of Exodus is especially so; and Judges. (As of Samson and Delilah) And it's fun trying to decipher the section of Revelation.
In the Revelations of Saint John, speaking of a mountain thrown into the sea; and the third part of the sea animals die. I think we warn of a great cataclysm in the sea. And what could kill fish soon is the acidification of the seas because of the carbon dioxide emitted by machines. They also speak of a rain of fire and blood that destroys plants. This also could be caused by carbon dioxide, by heating both the atmosphere causing desertification that kills plants.
The bible is an interesting book.

Happy aphelion everyone.

Also, thank you to the Brits for being too fagged out from fighting the French (and Dutch) to deal with us. May your own temper tantrum go as well.

Huh.

I didn't realize there were real people that did that lattice on top of cherry pies. And this is coming from the person that has made chicken ballotine more than once.

This is great. After a run is the perfect time to go on FB/Twitter/G+ or Reuters. Because I don't care. I don't care about any of it. North Korea could have just lobbed their perfectly-working, totally-not-fake missiles at us, Trump (or She Who Must Be Obeyed) could have just been declared supreme overlord (or lady, respectively,) they could have decided that Pluto is a planet again.

I don't care at all. I've just run nine kilometers and nothing phases me.

Well. Except the prospect of another nine kilometers.

Ow. Ow. Ow. That pun hurt so bad.
(...and 9k isn't too bad if you're used to it, 18k however...)

So I dreamed that I was looking up the origin of the phrase '39-steps', which (my mind decided) is an ancient stone-crushing process for the retrieval of some sort of exotic ore. Or perhaps it's the process that's exotic, I never figured that out. Because it's the sort of thing that you rediscover hundreds of years later in some anagrammed Latin plagiarism of an obscure technique developed by Egyptians (or whoever they stole it from in the first place) to use in the construction of teeny tiny boats for the use of the undead.

The truly terrifying thing about all this though is that I dreamed up an entire Wikipedia page for it. I have a completely false mental snapshot of this page.

Yeah.

I may need to cut down on the "research."

I've tried before to point out that this argument applies the Matrix too. (See: Carnot efficiency.)

I'm no longer welcome to Movie Night.

Ah well, I suppose I'd know that if I hadn't given up on the movies, but it was more the fact that he said it. Biocomputers make more sense (and was, in fact, part of my personal Matrix "head canon") but still...

Morpheus was an idiot. But then it's the Brothers Wachowski, so what did we expect?

I probably shouldn't have made a blog post about this, but I guess I can start my list of regrets early this year. 
I don't actually make classical New Year's resolutions. One reason for this is because I think they're pretty much useless; I am a 'concrete goals' sort of girl. Another is that I really don't have the necessary attention spa...
