“Hanging perfectly straight bro” is what did it for me. One day I’m going to use that in real life and lose a friend forever, but it’ll be worth it.

I’ve been having a less than great week due to general grad school crises (I don’t understand research, do I even like this, what am I even doing here) so this was NOT a good week for videogum to go away. If Kelly could just postpone this event until I (and everyone else) am in a more emotionally capable place), that would be great, thanks in advance

When I told my California friend there was a low of -4 F yesterday she responded with, ‘can humans even survive in that temperature?’. This being my first east coast winter, I’m very dubious myself.

It’s snowy outside, but the sidewalk outside is all clear except for one icy patch that is exactly the width of our apartment’s facade. So, that’s how I learned who is responsible for salting the sidewalks.

I’m so jealous of the fact that you can start a sentence with “I live in an area with a lot of wild porcupines…”

I assumed that since it looks to be a pretty human-friendly fellow, the owners must have removed the quills somehow (I imagine they must come out pretty easily?) to keep everyone from being pincushioned every time it wants to hang out.

Ughhhhh how I am going to ever write a thesis if I can’t even reply properly. Life is impossible

Thanks! Our department is doing monthly rotations for new grad students, where we have a one-month trial period with a different advisor each month and then after three rotations you pick the one you like best. It’s like speed dating but with months instead of minutes, professors instead of dates, and stress/anxiety instead of…well, I imagine that’s the same.

I had a Vietnamese vermicelli bowl for lunch! The entire, very large bowl. Which is why it’s 7pm and I haven’t gone home to eat yet.
In other news, a (grad school) weekly reading group of ~5 people (including one prof) rearranged all their schedules midway through the semester to accommodate mine so I could participate, because I said I was interested, but I only kind of meant it! They called my bluff and now I feel pressured to be super prepared and excited when I get there. Ugh. But I’m freaking out about trying to pick something to do my Master’s thesis on so I’m trying to force myself to participate in all these things, so here goes nothing…

1. Jaguars the cars, or Jaguars the animal? I was assuming the former until I got to your last sentence, which leads me to:
2. Can you please expand on Holiday Party Goat? Like, everything about it?

The part where the small landscape is in the big landscape is one my many many favorite parts of this movie! Other top highlights were the cat-version of the theme song and the bananas (obviously).

I had dumplings for lunch! One of the highlights of moving to Toronto has been all the Chinese food right by the university. They ain’t as good as momma made em but they are def. appreciated after two years in Oregon (I love you Portland, but you’re So White)

I think that’s pretty much the same sentiment I got – too ridiculous to form a coherent opinion

Oh, I also very much enjoyed The Host (the 2006 Korean one) and Suspiria (the 70s Italian one)

What are people’s thoughts on Repo!: the Genetic Opera? It’s got people sing-speaking all their lines, a gritty dystopian future, and both Sarah Brightman (my mom loves her) AND Paris Hilton. WHAT MORE COULD YOU ASK FOR??

sorry i’m really late on this but yes!! I just learned about this last year and definitely could have benefited from it like, ten years ago, before my gums became polar ice caps in a global-warming environment. I don’t think children would quite interpret “brush less hard” the way you’d want them to, though.

If Jason has another sexy vampire dream about Eric this time on the same caliber as the one he had about Warlow can you guys just all have a quick moment of silence for me because I will be dead. DEAD. Thanks in advance

I have! I took my little sister and her friend to it. In the intro part the tour guide asked the ~15 people there if we wanted the tour to focus on the history or focus on the ghosts, and the instant she said that my sister’s friend shouted “OHH GHOSTS!!!” so the group got the ghost tour pretty unanimously. It was awesome even though we didn’t see any :-/

I’m a fan of Hobo’s in Chinatown, but I may be biased because my pool team plays pool there a lot and my boyfriend knows all the bartenders. But the food is pretty tasty and the drinks are strong (although not the cheapest). Also, if you’re bored you can look for ghosts/ask the bartenders about their ghost experiences in the place.

It’s the exact opposite face of the guy in front of you!
