|No passport pictures! No! No!|
It is a bad day to have your picture made.
You are a pro at being photographed, but today is not the day.
Sadly, today is the deadline to get your passport photo. All that is required is to sit in front of a white background and have your eyes open.
But some days that just doesn't seem to be in the cards.
Your teeth hurt.
You have a cold.
You are out of sorts—at least as long as that camera is looking at you.
Daughter Hannah has a new website whose strings are you wearing where you can post selfies with guitar string bracelets. Profits are donated to various charities. You can see which ones on the site too.
Stepmother (hah!), Jan Jenner, has published a new edition of her biology text Beyond Race: Human Biological Diversity. It comes very apropos, as it shows that, as far as genomics are concerned, race is an artificial distinction. Put paid to questions about evolution immediately, before we elect a Republican to the White House! Order for your classroom today!
Yes, I'm on my liberal high horse bigtime these days! Almost 10 percent of Americans have severe anger issues and access to guns, according to recent studies.
And speaking of anger issues, on a lighter note (ha!) "Woman Stabs Roommate for Refusing to Stop Listening to Eagles." One might think she is from the Ozarks, but she isn't.
In a different demographic entirely, photog pal Derek Hudson has published a short book about Millenium Britain, from lower to upper crust. I am planning to buy it here. What's hanging me up is the pound thing.
A brilliant tumblr site called Gluten Free Museum depicts what works of art from Van Gogh to Warhol would look like without wheat or products that contain that contaminant. I am still waiting for the "Bubba Richard's Gluten-Free Call-In Radio Show." Sigh. Sorry. That isn't very PC.
check this out. There is also nothing better than a boiled quail egg dipped in mustard sauce unless it is a raw quail egg atop sushi. The problem with boiled quail eggs, though, is that peeling them is even more impossible than peeling a very fresh hen's egg. Don't talk to me about hacks like baking soda, ice water, shaking in a glass, blowing out from the top. If it's fresh, it's near impossible! If you have a foolproof method, please weigh in. PS This would be the perfect inland spring meal with the addition of some fiddlehead ferns.

She speaks from deep experience.
lunar eclipse over a blood moon. I did not bring my winter coat, as I never want to see it again, so the weather better freaking shape up! Enjoy your Seder bitter herbs, your Easter Dinners, your Chocolate Bunnies and other festivities, I am heading into the wilderness after, rather than for, Lent, living my life, as per usual, ass backwards.
