and also possibly missing the left part of her pelvis? possibly it's just a trick of the light/pose, but on one side she clearly has a hip and on the other, the leg just sort of becomes torso.

uberHOP is only running pilots in a few cities right now but it is very clearly trying to be a form of privatized mass transit.

aw, that one's from The Black Bull of Norroway which is genuinely one of my favorite fairy tales and the heroine is very brave and resourceful, she just gets desperate in a bad situation!

As an overall approach to life I am on board with the benefit of the doubt, when the alternative to is assume that like, someone random has a personal vendetta against me. But when the question is "is racism at work here?" in a white supremacist society, there is not actually doubt! There is racism, built into the system from the get-go.

I can be a cranky hermit rumored to be a witch (but actually with a heart of gold) in any sort of town, but a beach town would definitely be the most pleasant setting for it. Eccentric beachcomber witch-hermit, maybe? The stories are that I use the things I gather in my evil witchcraft but really what I do is set them up into elaborate and meticulously-researched private museum displays in my home.

The Sweethome recommends L. L. Bean percale sheets. I have not yet tried them myself but I am about to order some because a set of my aging Costco sheets just tore.

Once upon a time in college I borrowed a friend's car to drive an hour to take the GRE. I had to stop for gas on the way, which I thought I had left ample time for, but then I could not figure how to open the gas cap. I could not find a lever or a button or an instruction ANYWHERE and my friend was not picking up his cell phone and I was convinced I was stranded and would miss the test and everything would be ruined forever.

I did finally get ahold of my friend (in time to get gas and make it to the testing site and everything) and it turns out the damn thing was a hidden button in the glove compartment. WTF.

I think the same thing sometimes. A life of quiet contemplation away from the world sounds great as long as I don't have to contemplate God or sin or things like that.

I sort of feel like you don't need to know the specific story to know that naming a child after a figure from Greek mythology is a bad call. I mean, a passing familiarity with any Greek myths at all should be enough to tell you that nothing goes well and nobody comes out looking good.
