Mark Salling of "Glee" has died

I got really bored with Glee, really fast. But I do like to read celebrity gossip, so this dude kept showing up and not in a good way.

Any Resume/CV experts out there?

Not that I want you to work for free if that is your actual job, but I have an appointment tomorrow with my university’s Career Services and they want to see a hard copy of my resume. I have some questions.

What Day Is It?  AM OT

Apparently today is Wednesday? I had no idea. Had you asked me when I dragged myself out of bed, I would have said Tuesday or maybe Thursday? I don’t know. This week is stupid-busy.

Happy Leif Eriksen Day! [UPDATED] Happy Leif Eriksen Day! [UPDATED]

In the year 1001, Leif Eriksen set foot on what we now call North America. Not a lot of historical records from those times are available, but we can guess that he didn’t immediately start a campaign of rape and enslavement of the indigenous peoples, unlike SOME PEOPLE whose names rhyme with “shmeuropeans.” (Yes, I…

Entertainment for the housebound?

Hi GT, I need some ideas.

Weirdest movie cameo? Weirdest movie cameo?

What’s-His-Name and I were flipping channels yesterday and came across “Stuck on You” which is one of those movies we end up uh... sticking with when we land on it.

Help me do crafty!!

I’m willfully ignoring whatever is happening today. I think 6 days out of 7 is more than enough to throw myself at life. Today my brain gets a break.

Instant Pot - Cool Gadget or Cult Gateway

Drunk Me, whom I normally adore because she’s funny and can sing really well (that’s a lie), ordered an Instant Pot on Amazon the other day. Then Sober Me was all “well, let’s see what all the fuss is about” when some of the friends expressed happiness with theirs.

Adult-Onset Undergrad Adult-Onset Undergrad

As most of you know, I am a 41-year-old college junior (-ish). Midterms are upon us and so I thought I’d take a minute to look at how my first semester back after a 14-year absence is going.

College is kicking my elderly ass College is kicking my elderly ass

...but in a good way!

Help Me Sports Bra

Hivemind assemble!

Rapist Brock Turner's whole family is awful 

We knew that, or at least suspected. Here’s some more proof.

Resources For Grants and Scholarships Resources For Grants and Scholarships

Now that I’m headed back to school in the fall, I am thinking about how we’re going to pay for it. I’m 99% sure the money is there via What’s-His-Name’s bonus, but as with most things in life, nothing is certain until I have that cash in my hands.

Back To School Back To School

Tomorrow morning, I am headed to my former university (the third one, actually) to discuss my re-enrollment with a Dean. It’s been 14 years since I was dismissed from said university due to poor grades/attendance stemming from the various and sundry mental illnesses with which I am afflicted.

RIP Garry Shandling

TMZ is reporting that Garry Shandling has died at age 66. I was never a huge fan of his but The Larry Sanders show was hilarious. The reports are saying that he didn’t seem to be ill so his death is rather sudden. I wonder what it was.


This is it, everyone! LAST CALL FOR COOKIES!!

Girl Scout Cookies (bumped for FINAL CALL) Girl Scout Cookies (bumped for FINAL CALL)

[UPDATED] - Looks like some of you who have ordered online have gotten your cookies already which is aweeeeesommmmeeeeee so order some more before time runs out, since I know you ate all of them already.

Does anyone here understand amiibo?

Help a mom out: WeePiglet is suuuuuuuuuper into Animal Crossing (we have City Folk on the Wii and Happy Home Designer on the 3DS) and we have amiibo cards which I barely understand but she figured them out and the world kept turning.

GT HELP! Anyone in Belgium?

If you or someone you know is in or near Brussels and can help me get my hands on a certain beer, I will be happy, forever in your debt, and basically your biggest fan forever and ever and ever amen.
