California

Well, you've all seen me bitching on Facebook. San Francisco is expensive, and hard to get around in. The weather is OK - chilly most of the time, but not terrible. People are friendly, but the obstacle to making friends here is the transience, as opposed to Minnesota where it's the firm entrechment of every friend you've had since high school to the exclusion of all else. Food is cheaper. Services are cheaper. Transit can be cheaper. Museums and things I like doing are more expensive, and rent - well, we're paying $4K and that's right on market.

Also, guys try to pick me up by attempting to start political conversations over hummus, commenting on my "vaguely Semitic" features.
I blame all the bottle blondes around here.

  • Sat, 15:50: In all the stuff I have read in the last week about the #pagan scandal du jour, little has addressed casual behaviors that feed trouble.
  • Sat, 20:01: Manuscript formatting. The bad news: I have to do the index by hand.
  • Sat, 20:03: Binge watching Hart & Dixie. It is causing @jamuraa to speak more Iowan and my Hoosier accent to emerge as well.

  • Fri, 15:03: So @jamuraa is sort of laid off, sort of on furlough. My fear is not about being ok - it's Mike & me so given - it is what the new ok means.
  • Fri, 15:04: RT @jillithd: Thank you, internet, for today I have learned there is such a thing as a zonkey: http://t.co/j6NIDemEpi And a Zorse. Of cours…
  • Fri, 15:18: "I never felt the desire to be like other kids, which is unforgivable in teen culture." -Oberon Zell this I understand.
  • Fri, 19:43: Advocating a theory that the Holy Grail is simply a cup inhabited by some holy spirit - and that it is now in a red Solo cup.
  • Fri, 20:12: More G+ cleanup. Considering doing the same on LinkedIn.
  • Fri, 20:49: Was outraged to find out the US also has weaponized dolphins. Wondering if earlier humans had my feelings towards battle horses.
  • Fri, 21:46: Catching up on Grimm. Annoyed by the herbal misinformation about valerian embedded in the plot. A high dose takes a synthetic process to be.
  • Fri, 21:51: Honestly, there are plenty of other herbs that really would have worked the way valerian was described to.
  • Fri, 22:36: Wow. Blocking fishy followers on my G+ and almost every one that has seemed fishy has had some TOS violation on it.

  • Thu, 21:11: Watching Community + GI Joe. Somewhere out there @robcallahan just got uh... very happy. (actual word choice redacted.)
  • Fri, 00:27: Random metaphysical thought: what if our concept of omnipresent deity referred to time rather than space?
  • Fri, 02:58: Ah, night anxiety. I knew you'd show up.
  • Fri, 03:12: Thinking about how Steven Colbert's monologues remind me of James Thurber. My gramps kept seeing Twain and Thurber in me.
  • Fri, 03:14: Admittedly I do share Twain's faith-based cynicism and Tom Sawyer's volunteer management skills. Maybe Thurber was his hope I would gentle.
