This line from a scientific paper made me lol.
So, you know those disaster movies where volcanoes explode like St. Helens but also spew fountains of really runny lava like Kilauea on laxatives? I have really bad news for them, courtesy of Edwar...

I got to spend a little bit of time exploring The Big Island, but I wasn't able to make it to Kilauea or the major lava flows. The texture of the older flows and the climate differences really do make for some surreal landscapes.

Stop what you’re doing and read this now. Right now. Especially those of you who want everyone to shut up about Josh Duggar.

I was holding a treat, trying to get her to open her mouth so I could look at her teeth, and she started drooling so hard. You can see where she dribbled on her paw.

A lovely sinister eye she's giving me. But she's actually quite happy. I'm (mostly) forgiven for letting B take her side of the bed last night.

B's here and sleeing in her bed. She's been wandering through the house all night, at a loss as to what to do. After engaging in a lot of stress-eating (yay, appetite!), she chose to hang out in my lap - right after I'd finished reading and propped the tablet on my knees to take notes. Sigh. Also, now that she's thoroughly kneaded my bladder, I need to pee...

Reading books like Escape makes me realize how sheltered I was. I wasn't taught to fear strangers. I wasn't in an environment where abuse was rife and women forced into loveless marriages, all stam...

This is how I feel about Exodus. The last 6 chapters are brutally boring. It's a bunch of arts and crafts related in excruciating detail. Takeaway: God is a materialistic asshole who will kill you for wearing the wrong underwear. Also, a perfectionist control freak who had nothing better to do than micromanage a bunch of unhappy nomads, and make them haul around a ton of useless crap. You ever wonder why it took Israelites 40 years to make a few weeks' trip, it's cuz God had them making a ton of intricate shit for him, then offering complicated sacrifices twice or more per day. The arts n crafts alone must've taken a good 38 years, cuz God only let two people work on it.

I have no idea how I'll make the next Really Terrible Bible Stories end with a bang, not a deflating balloon noise. This is bloody ridiculous.

Ima go back to Mount St. Helens now. At least it had the courtesy to explode at the end. This, btw, is why I always have multiple irons in the fire. It's so that I don't give in to the temptation to stab my brain out with my pen.

When I was a younster, this was rendered as "the Israelites wandered in the desert for 40 years"... I took away the sense that God wanted them in the desert until he was satisfied.

I have been reduced to bribing my cat for affection. It worked until she was finished with treats. She has no use for cuddles when it's warm.

"So vote Yes. Be part of what should be a great moment for so many of us. Plan your trip to the polling station on Friday, and make sure others you know have done the same. Every vote will send a message, and every Yes vote will help secure a more equal Ireland."

A lot of you pointed me toward Rachel Maddow's segment wherein she compares the aftermath of the May 18, 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens with the aftermath of the Iraq War. Even if you hate polit...
