goatmeal shrivelled grape
What?

Admittedly, it's better than reading that as goatmeat.

It depends. Did they just take off a goofy-looking outfit?

Re: What games have you played lately?

Besides periodic Sea of Thieves, I've returned to Crusader Kings 2. The gist is that I play a medieval noble who has to perpetuate their dynasty through heirs and secure their territory. Meanwhile, Sims-like, lots of events happen that create a fun narrative experience. For example, I became a queen...

Re: Are you right handed or left handed?

I'm right handed. That said, I find it silly that people test for handedness in films by throwing objects at them. If someone did that to me I'd catch with my left hand, because I did that in baseball and other sports.

Re: Do you like bowling?

Yes and I've always been terrible. It's one of those things I don't mind being bad at and still doing. I haven't bowled since my (grandmother's) bowling ball somehow got given to my brother's wife. But I certainly wouldn't have brought it overseas with me anyway. Are there bowling alleys (or someth...

STEM work and social effects

This is a typical tutoring session or poster presentation I engage in with someone: "Tell me a bit about your research." They're doing something that sounds interesting in itself. That said, if successful, that thing may mean changing work structures, cutting jobs, harming pedestrians, reducing the ...

Re: Oh Canada...

I have no idea. My uncle had to have a flight rerouted because he was due to transfer flights in Minneapolis. Meanwhile I'm here in the southern US sitting in short sleeves watching it rain. It feels like a more constant spring rain - not all that heavy, warm enough to be okay walking in. This week ...

Re: Do you like bowling?

Bowling is one of my favorite things. I've bowled at least once a week since I was 6!

I like the sport itself but I also like that I can do it with friends over a pizza and a pitcher of beer.

Re: posting pictures of kids and privacy

On the one hand, sharing information online is different because online materials always have a potentially public audience, one that goes well beyond circles of friends. How many parents have shared something only to have it become a meme that explodes wildly out of context? On the other hand, in m...

Re: are you afraid of spiders?

I feel I am appropriately cautious with spiders. I've seen both brown recluses and black widows. Even less-venomous spiders have irritating bites. I don't trifle with them if I can help it. I have no compunction against killing them, but I prefer to set them outside or out of the way if possible. Th...

Re: I don't believe in dinosaurs.

In the dining hall during undergrad, I sat with someone who asked me, very seriously: "What if all the fossils and items over 10,000 years old were planted there by God to mislead nonbelievers?" I honestly don't remember how I got through that conversation - I probably said something to the effect o...

It always helps me to make lists of what I'm going to get out of a job. Enjoyment, money, benefits, education, whether the place smelled good - all of that.
