Re: Are you afraid of flying?

I love flying so much I get frustrated when I don't have a window seat, and then really frustrated when I'm not in the window seat and the person closes the window. I WANT TO PEEK AT CLOUDS.

Re: are you good at billiards?

My grandparents have a billiards table. So I know how to shoot forward and behind my back, I can land many conventional shots, and play a decent geometric game.

I'll lose to someone who is in practice, but I'll beat people in casual games.

Thanks! I've been such a bundle of nerves today concerning the job market, my writing frustrations, and a meeting I have with my boss tomorrow. Every little bit helps, and you people at Spacefem definitely help, as does even knowing that awesome people like you exist. :w00t:

Earl Grey!

Though lately I've been having a craving for a tea I used to have. I want to say it was a black tea with a mead-like flavoring?

Re: when did you last use a microphone?

I use one at least biweekly for a meeting.

By the way, will there at some point be a division between microphone as a vocal amplifier (like a concert or event mic) and microphone as a digital audio recorder in a computer or phone?

Related to the first one: microwaves aren't magic. The same elements will still be in the food.

Re: what's the last movie you saw?

I saw The Bad News Bears (1976). :4houses: In a sentence, a terrible little league baseball team battles the odds, other kids, and its wash-out coach during a little league season. It is a well-made, irreverently funny film. It doesn't over-tip its hand with unnecessary expository. Early on, it's ea...

Re: #metoo

I haven't participated. I feel weird about it. Maybe this place can help me understand why. Part of it is I just don't love trends. The echo chamber DEFINITELY annoys me... are we changing anybody's mind? I am suspicious of trends too. And I'm not sure how large the effect of #metoo will be. I will...

Re: Girl Of My Dreams

I read it all. <3 It is hard how many of our relationships remain contingent on one particular gender presentation. Like, it seems understandable that a relationship involving physical attraction may falter as you begin to transition. (I'm glad your current partner loves you and sounds awesome.) But...

Re: What's your favorite water sport?

Kayaking, even with the hot tubs option. Second place is water + ball sports like water polo or water volleyball.

If I could kayak in a miniature hot tub, that would be optimal.

Re: How do you learn?

I learn a lot through close reading and narrating. If I can say the material out loud and string it together into a story or a lecture, I've got it. I also learn through doing, but there's a bit less of that in my field besides, well, reading/writing/teaching. Still, I've found that visual diagrams ...

We did basically everything the boy scouts did but boy scouts always seemed a bit more militaristic? They were founded by someone (Robert Baden-Powell) who wanted to make young soldiers more prepared for huffing it in the wilderness of the British Empire, so there's that. :/ (I think he also founde...
