For your further education

Posted by: meaplet on: June 30, 2008

For your further education, I’d like to shine a little bit of light on two very different people who are infrequently confused, except by me. Jon Sims was a luminary of the San Francisco gay music scene in the 1970s, founding the San Francisco Lesbian and Gay Freedom Band and the San Francisco Gay Men’s […]

I was writing an awesome post recommending music I like, but it turns out that doesn’t like links to the iTunes music store at all. Just like they don’t like javascript, or web forms, or really anything that could make me a quick buck on the internet. For this reason I’m in the process […]

Awkward dental adventures

Today’s useful lesson: dental dams were originally invented for dentistry! Some context: Dentist: Molly, do you know what a dental dam is? Molly: Yes. Dentist: Have you ever used one? Molly: Er, yes?

Just a tick…

This morning… [random coworker]: Molly, I hear that you and Erica might be roommates. Me: Yeah, we talked briefly about it. How did you know? Today at lunch… Erica: Molly, we probably shouldn’t tell too many people that we’re going to be roommates, because that might mean it will all go wrong! Me: I think […]
