Staaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahp with the check your privilege already. Staaaaaaaaaaaaahp.

It’s presumptuous, bigoted, racist, and predicated on assumption. Bite me.

Whhyyyyyyyyyyy are so many people here so early today? Why you gotta ruin my morning quiet time?

Because women don’t generally have hairy asses?

The weather today! It’s going to be the only thing that salvages my mood, I can tell already.

Why would you send that email out to everybody? Why not just send it to the people who responded to your inquiry? That email is just spammy.

although i know you can’t appreciate it

At what point are you going to be forced to release your desperate grasp on that cloak of victimhood? Take some damn responsibility for yourself.

Adding a winky face to your passive aggressive bitchery does not magically make it not passive aggressive bitchery.

Today’s belly shirt looks like it was made out of shredded tissue paper. Sheesh.

Boxing used to be a sport in high school??

Somebody’s feet really stink. It’s so gross.

When did Coldplay get all 90s dance remix synth arena pop??

Bats are louder than you’d think.

Being here just makes me sad.

I don’t know what kind of fugue state I was in when I thought I could handle two classes and a 5 month old. And a full time job. And a 10 year old. And a husband. And a commute. And sleeping.

Wow, I read that as “racist rainstorm”. Ha.

“Ballpoint pens will be the ruin of education in our country. Students use these devices and then throw them away. The American values of thrift and frugality are being discarded. Businesses and banks will never allow such expensive luxuries.” ~Federal Teachers, 1950

I unfriended him because he annoyed me.

And the Hoover Dam was never seen again.

It’s cold in here. Physically and metaphorically.

oooh! I just had a really good idea for a class. But I’m not sharing those ideas any more because they don’t take me seriously. Too bad for them. It was a really good idea.

Oh wow. This video.

I need a good hair day so I can get my new ID photo taken. I need some “I’ve been on a boat” hair.

I don’t like working with a counseling psychology doctoral student. I feel like he’s secretly analyzing me. In fact, my brain is quite sure he only took this job, which is wholly unrelated to his field, to write his dissertation on our weird office dynamics. I’m sure that says something about my ego or narcissistic tendencies or something. Is paranoia narcissistic? Seems like it must be.

Now I feel REALLY good about myself. Sheesh.

I don’t know how anyone can not be appalled by this. This isn’t mercy.

Huh. So Benedict Cumberbatch. Kind of a nutball.

This is pretty awesome.

I can’t be the only one who wants to pronounce anions like onions, but with an a. Anyuns. Right?

She keeps saying ecspecially.

Wow. You are actually the poster boy for being a pompous ass. Stop talking. Just stop.

Why do people put spiral bound notebooks in three ring binders?

Just because I have a goat doesn’t mean I’m particularly fond of goats. It means my people have a weakness for stray animals.

Your overdose of cologne is like tiny daggers of trying too hard in my brain.

It’s not FASFA! You work in higher ed, you should be pronouncing this acronym correctly. It’s FAFSA. FAFSA FAFSA FAFSA. What is so difficult about this???

Wow. Bill Nye. He just doesn’t get to be any less of an asshat, does he?

It’s not besides the point. It isn’t. It might be beside the point, but it’s never besides the point.

There’s a university rule about eating in class? Huh.

Freedom of speech does not refer to the language you speak, dude. Although, I suppose it protects your right to speak whatever language you want … But that’s not what it means!

There’s some really cool stuff here, guys. Really.

sigh. Paul is still totally dreamy.

Of course, this IS a good hair day, and it’s pouring buckets, so I can’t walk down and get my new damn hell ID photo anyway. Damn. Hell. Dammit.

wm5726I think people on Facebook should post in the same voice that they speak.

This is fascinating.

Yeah, procreate is not a hyphenated word. Just FYI.

I was thinking this morning that I don’t think I’ve ever actually seen the definition of the word “just”. I don’t mean the “It was a just reward” definition, I mean the “I can’t just throw your arse out on the street, as much as I’d like to, you bastard” definition.  I suppose I’ve never actually seen the definition of most of the words in my vocabulary. It’s fascinating.

Gorgeous work! I like it even more since liberals apparently hate this woman for having 10 children.

I really feel that it is my duty, as a human on this planet, to be the official taste tester.

I’d be happy with Lynda Carter’s hair.

You lose points for the gold chain.

My feet are hot. I hate it when my feet are hot.

Stop pacing. Stop pacing. STOP PACING!!!


Saying “as well, too” is ridiculous.

Oh wow. There’s a window back there.

That girl is wearing the tiniest outfit. When did those skin tight mock turtleneck crop tops come back? Who dresses like that for class? The fly on her tiny shorts is unzipped. I feel it would be too awkward to say anything.

I don’t understand why anyone would want to write with blue ink. It seems so frivolous to me. I’ll probably still like you if you do though. It’s not a deal breaker.

She has Live Strong tattooed on her wrist. A yellow plastic bracelet was clearly not quite commitment enough.

I’ve actually been listening to the radio in the car lately. I can’t plug my iPod into the stereo in Deep Space Nine. Which is what I’ve named my behemoth. So I skip stations a lot, because that’s how I roll. So I think I like this song.

Also, if you wanna send me a mix cd, I’d really love it. For serious.

I don’t care. I want to see the photos from Angelina Jolie’s wedding. Don’t judge me.

I am thoroughly tired of hearing about “Radical Activist Leni Sinclair, Co-Founder of the White Panther Party.”

I really have got to get Nick Gillespie here.

WordPress is killing me this morning.

You should not be allowed to eat at meetings. Ever. I don’t want to hear you talking with your mouth full of food. Just stop. Just stop.

I don’t understand people who put nuts in brownies. Why would you ruin a perfectly good brownie like that?? It’s just mean!

The smell of your coffee is like tiny daggers of bitter enmity in my brain.

Why are you all so loud? All the time. All. The. Time. You’re so loud.

Oh my GOD I’m trapped in this meeting that I am completely irrelevant to. THERE IS NO ESCAPE. I hate this week.


Though I maintain that the animated version is better. Was better. Whatever whatever.

This has been stuck in my head for days. I had forgotten how much I loved this song.

I took a tiny tiny piece of pie, but it still isn’t tiny enough. Too. Much. Sugar.

And these are all the ways in which this room is not actually a FISH BOWL. gah.

… Really?

It’s not a toy.

I heard this on the radio too. I find it oddly mesmerizing. Oddly. I think it’s the chorus.

I can’t believe you spelled Pete Townshend wrong.

I can’t get anything done. Stop emailing me with your nonsense.

Look. You can’t ask me the same questions over and over while I’m migranous and not expect me to be a little grumpy with you.

Just stop it with this foolishness already.

I’m so done with this week. I can’t even tell you. Make it stop.

Wait. How is it that “black pride” gets to be “righteous”?

I need something. Something that is not in this office.

No. I’d have to go to the store.


WTF is “white girl wasted”?

Huh. Facebook is brokenish. Oh well.

I don’t care what anyone says. I’ll always be true to the Oxford comma.

I like the Washington Crossing the Delaware one.

I kind of love that carnivorous cupcake.

farmy farm farm

I suppose I’m wrong for finding the cover of Spiderwoman #1 kind of hilarious.

Wow, I had no idea this existed. I love it.

Random tweet from the past: I dreamt I gave @adamsbaldwin a hair cut. He looked great, considering I don’t know anything about cutting hair.

Woebegone is all one word, dude.

Oh! I love love love this!

sigh. Words mean things. Just because a word *sounds* like it fits what you’re trying to say, doesn’t make it true.

When I say I want mustard on my sandwich, that does not mean you should squirt half the bottle on it. Mustard has a pretty powerful flavor. You don’t need much. Get me to the napkins.

ITS not it’s. ITS NOT IT’S!!!!!!

“Tim McGraw still has the hots for his wife.” How could he not?

Wow. Weird. And creepy.

I’m liking this site right now.

I’m so glad control z worked there!!!

Lena Dunham. Why. Ugh. Just stop.

These are beautiful.

They’re raising awareness so that they can continue to raise awareness.

Everything is just so damp. bleah

I could go for a donut.

Instagram appears to be broken. Now what will I stare at?

I just ate a really good chicken, bacon, ranch wrap. I think I need to have them for lunch regularly.

Dear God, what is that smell?

So much dumb.

My battery is dying.

Tractor crossing signs signaling some weird, centaur like hybrid of man and machine.

I do not like the new Lipton tea packaging at all.

Any table is a dining table if you dine at it.

Tiffani Thiessen has the best hair ever in White Collar. I wish it was mine.

See? That is why people don’t like spiders. Because when you hook your fingers over the handle of the lint trap and feel something crunchy they jump out at you. THEY JUMP OUT AT YOU.

I think I have encountered at least 5 different types of spider in this house.

I’m making this shawl so I can be a shawl person. It’s going to be so cozy.

The word “impeach” is becoming sort of meaningless.

That was one of those “I’m not really sorry” sorries. Sorry.

This baby is not happy today. Not. Happy.

“Fiddlers bottle dance sticks in my mind.”

I smell like a campfire and cheap cigars.

Those are surprisingly good cookies.

What? I do not remember Pogo Ball.

I think I need to just decide that I’m a shawl person. I think it’s just something you claim.

would a little more love make it

Dammit! I cannot tell the Sleeping Bear story without getting choked up. It’s so embarrassing. It’s because I’m a mom. It breaks my heart. I was telling it today to the new doc student and he said “It’s OK, it’s not real!”

I can just imagine how unofficially excited you must be.

Oops. I forgot to walk him through WordPress.

How about just NOT RIOTING? How does breaking the law and hurting people – either physically or economically – fix your problems?

I love post cards.

I made a list of all the shit I have to do. And then I lost the list.

Please. Pierce Brosnan was probably the worst Bond of them all.

There needs to be a word between scent and odor. They both seem too extremely romantic or derogatory.

The geosciences building smells like elementary school and reminds me of my grandpa’s house. I like it over there despite all of the overly liberal signage on faculty doors.

I think it’s a Swiss Miss Miracle. I think I actually found a replacement for my beloved Bert’s Bee’s Nutmeg Lip Shimmer.

Of course you know what this means. Revlon will let me get nice and comfortable with my choice and then discontinue it.

Despite what you might believe, it is not actually necessary to ring the chimes immediately upon entering the office. Give a girl a chance to walk to the desk, whydontcha.

Among the songs I have sung to my children – mlk by U2, Walkin’ After Midnight by Patsy Cline, Lullaby by the Dixie Chicks. I never have sung Rockabye Baby.

We are fun. And funny. And good.

You will never get me to call it the fishbowl. Never.


Well obviously now he needs another t shirt.

Sigh. No. She isn’t. But, you don’t need to even watch the video to make your assessment, so. Whatever.

ACK! I hate these masks. ACK!!

So apparently the only way you can graduate college debt free is if you’re a privileged white kid. OK. Funny. I thought you could graduate college debt free through a variety of means, not least of which is actually working to pay your tuition instead of taking out loans the whole time.


“The United States Congress should make learning a second language mandatory for high school students.” … whaaaaa?

Facebook suggested I might like to join the “Borderline Personality Disorder and Beyond” group. …

Gah. There is SO MUCH STUFF I want to knit all of a sudden. Stupid job. Stupid school.

Ha. I love Rick Perry’s smugshot.

These cracked me up, it’s true. Also I could see that chicken thing happening on the Compound.

Good grief, how is it this late already??

OK, you only get 28 characters, people. Your title does not have to be that wordy.

Well that was a pain in the ass I wasn’t expecting til Friday.

This book description is hilarious. So over the top.

When the place where you live has more than 3,000 miles of coastline and you work in a photo lab for 10 years you print a lot of lighthouse photos. A LOT. I grew to loathe lighthouses over the years. Had I been printing lighthouse photos that looked like these, I might not have hated them so much.

How can you not remember that? It’s like not remembering that the sky is blue or that ice is cold.


Kind of a nice read.

I don’t think there’s anything cuter than baby hedgehogs. Not even otters. Plus otters are actually evil.

Bitch! You totally snuck that Happy song into my mix.

” … the cost associated with travel and living experiences.”

Well that was weird.

This might just be the most confusing sentence I have ever read: “The Uncertainty series was organized by a group of faculty who participated in a Scholarship of Teaching and Learning faculty learning community with the Office of Faculty Development.”

No, I still don’t want to chat with Ted Cruz.

I’m not going anywhere. Unless J.J. Abrams calls and says he desperately needs me in the next Star Trek film. Then I am so Audi 5000.

Ridiculous. Now I feel compelled to purchase body armor.

Yeah, I’m in.

Sometimes being treated like a nameless, faceless automaton gets a little old.

What a weird statement: “We are fortunate that our nation’s experiment in democratic government prevails, because individuals run for office and we vote.”

I think it’s less about courage and more about strength. And sometimes, you just don’t have any strength left.

What are you talking about? My home doesn’t have any equity. Thanks big government.

I just don’t think it’s necessary for us to know the details of Williams’ suicide.

Stormageddon is getting a Danzig onesie for Christmas. Or his birthday. I don’t know which. But it has to happen.

Dammit! There’s no egg on my McMuffin! Bastards!

I definitely need a Guns N’ Roses t shirt.

Oh Dear Lord. They were serious about bringing Anita Hill here.

Argh. My neck has been so stiff for the last several days.

Google Analytics confirms it. Y’all only come here for Random. Maybe I should change the name of the blog.

Fascinating. I suggest you click through and read the photographer’s statement on the project as well.

Amanda Marcotte is a ridiculous human being.

I don’t see what the big deal is here. She knows how to make money, and good for her. You know people will buy this. That’s the beauty of capitalism.

This is hilarious.

False, Maria.

I always thought he was saying “Twiggy.” It was “Twiki”.

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.” ~ C.S. Lewis

It’s a pointless argument. Or the wrong argument. Sometimes it’s not so Yay, Internet!

I had my sleep removed!

Yes. This applies to so many many other things in the media.

“Pay attention to science fiction!” should really be my mantra.

I’m tired.

It’s just that I miss all the stuff. Important stuff. Cos I’m stuck here.

I wonder what the correlation is between depression and migraines, if any.

And just like that, my morning is shot.

I need to draw a chicken. Except that I can’t really draw. So there’s that.

It’s not like live tweeting from the fair grounds.

So this is nice.

It’s freezing in here. I think my leg is starting to cramp up.

I could walk down and get a new ID. I could.

Am I the kind of person who can wear a shawl? I just don’t know. It seems like that’s somehow reserved for super skinny people or something.

I just ran out of peanut M&Ms.

I am considering the space heater. It’s tempting. What the hell, I’m going for it.

Wow, dude. I don’t care how much money you make, that is no way to treat people. You, sir, are an ass.

When my email inbox exceeds 20 active messages I start to get twitchy. It’s been a stressful week.

I don’t really understand bloggers. I guess that’s all. I guess I don’t really think of myself as a blogger.

I was required to keep a journal for a high school English class that I hated. I don’t journal. I’ve tried to off and on over the years but always fail. And when I go back to reread it, it’s mildly embarrassing. So I’d sit down with the journal on Sunday and write the previous week’s entries. And it was like a long hand version of Random Wednesday. My teacher called them “disjointed ramblings”. And there you have it.

I hate it when people post memes with incorrect grammar.

This is very moving.

I had such high hopes for this Lizzie Borden movie and am pretty disappointed. And what’s with that music?

I don’t think that guy should ever sport a mustache.

Did she do it? She must have done, I suppose.

I would like to visit that house some day.

I’m glad I’m not a lawyer.

I’ve never actually been to a livestock auction before. I hope Miss W makes some good money today.

I’m totally getting funnel cake Saturday.

I have to take Miss W to the Allegan Co. Fair some year. That’s the fair I grew up with. It’s 4 or 5 times the size of this fair. I saw all the big country names there too, back in the day.
