Just because you got the vaccine it doesn't mean you can ask every girl from the parish around what pleases her most from her head to her toes.

Vaccine, feelings 

BC opened up AstraZeneca vaccines to people over 40 today so my partner's run off to the walk in to get jabbed right away and I'm simultaneously feeling happy for him and relief that there's light at the end of the tunnel and a bit jealous and low that my turn hasn't come up yet and may not for months.

Based on how everyone is talking, the two main looks this summer are going to be "Please do not perceive me beneath my voluminous cottagecore garments" and "Still gets groceries delivered after being banned from Safeway for shopping in a thong bikini and Lil Nas X blood sneaker ensemble."

Announcing Meme It So! It's a Star Trek The Next Generation Meme and GIF Generator, inspired by Frinkiac.

It has every line of dialogue spoken on STTNG tied to screencaptures. Which makes it good for looking up lines as well.

Earlier I was reading about an installation where a DJ played a set for one person, and offered to listen to a personal secret and keep it in strict confidence. My first reflexive flippant thought was "Or you could go to therapy" but the concept stuck with me because who wouldn't see the appeal of unburdening themselves of a secret without feeling obligated to examine it and themselves?

Lately, the one album that's been able to help me fall asleep is by a Russian indie/dream pop band called bessonnitsa, which ironically means "insomnia." Hopefully, I will forget this so I don't end up queueing it up and thinking "TIL this means sleeplessness" and staring at the ceiling.

Earlier today I took this picture of an ornamental kale just to send to someone with the message "Remember the time you thought I was fucking with you that kale and broccoli are the same vegetable?"

Food, culture, sarcasm 

This presumably American recipe that describes risotto as being "like Italian mac and cheese" is breaking my mind. If only Italians knew about pasta!

I couldn't remember the word "gijinka" (fanart that reimagines animal characters as human) and none of my searches were turning up the word, just listicles of drawings so in my desperation I typed in "Orville Wilbur Dodo gay art" and it was in like, the third result, thank you everyone who was so thirsty for pilots with unrealistic abs last spring.

Other people, foolish: Vampires are erotic.

Me, a learned historian: Dracula was killed by a cowboy. Lestat was brought back from the dead because he hated a fried chicken millionaire's tacky decor.

One thing that takes up too much real estate in my mind is the time Anne Rice had beef with the founder of Popeyes Chicken, so she took out a full page in the newspaper to give one of his restaurants a scathing review from the point of view of the vampire Lestat.
