Flowers are blooming and something has made a burrow.

I currently have two dogs and a cat in the chair with me.

I am running low on tea though, so the cuddles may have to stop soon.

I have wasted 30+ years.  I now know what I want to be when I grow up.

Also, the faculty who brought his whiny-ass children to work and left them completely unattended in the adjunct cubicle areas is officially on my shit list.

If you have children that are too young to take care of themselves, your back up plans should have back up plans.  You should not just dump them in a room with nothing to do and no supervision. 

Thirty people can’t get work done, because one guy can’t figure his shit out.

I just finished binge watching Orphan Black and dove back into Stargate season 7.  Orpheus was the second episode I watched today, and who should I see?  Olivier (David Richmond-Peck).

Look out Teal’c, he’s got a tail! 

I love Scifi.

I should seriously get moving. I have a ton to do today. But there is tea in my cup, Orphan Black on TV, and a very happy, very warm, very sleepy chihuahua in my lap.

I’m binge rewatching Orphan Black

And I think that my favorite parts are when Tatiana is playing one of the clones pretending to be a different clone.

I mean, playing different people, I get. I couldn’t do it, but I get it. Playing someone playing a character you play just sounds frickin’ hard.

ahoy-ladymagenta asked: Hi Joe!! Right now, I have a really horrible Calculus teacher, and I was wondering if you knew of any websites that can help me learn everything he didnt teach us before the midterm!! Thanks!

jtotheizzoe:

Eesh, I haven’t thought much about calculus since calculus class. Sorry your teacher can’t derive their way out of a paper bag.

I recommend everyone check out Open Culture’s list of free online courses (scroll down for the math courses). It puts a cornucopia of learning at your fingertips. Bookmark that page. It’s glorious.

I highly recommend khan academy. When I have students who need extra help and can’t make regular tutors’ hours because of work or childcare issues, I send them to khan and purple math. Unfortunately, purple math doesn’t do calculus.

Khanacademy.org and purplemath.com

Worms!

On the upside, I just got my order of worms!  They are now snug and cozy in the composters. 

In theory, the eggs left over from last year’s worms should have repopulated the composters, but we had a really warm winter, then a week of nights below freezing.  So they may have all hatched and then froze.  I haven’t seen worm activity in the last two weeks, so I figured it couldn’t hurt to order more. 

I am really hoping for a good garden this year.

So, Craig is working overtime in April.  He is approved for 40 hours of overtime for the month with the possibility of more.  He leaves 45 minutes early and comes home an hour to an hour and a half late and he worked a few hours last Saturday. 

I know in the rational part of my brain that the last thing I should do is complain.  This time last year he was on 80% time because congress couldn’t get their shit together and my car needs some fairly major repairs, so extra money is super good.  Plus he earns extra leave and extra retirement on top of the extra money.

But, I seriously miss him.  It has only been two weeks.  I just want to snuggle up in my chair with some knitting and TV until he comes home and never let him leave again.  Unfortunately, I’ve got shit to do, a car appointment, and class this evening.  :-(

 Periods aren’t an excuse to get out of anything. 

People who have never experienced blood pouring out of their genitals (via wiifitting)

and people who have never experienced a period with reproductive issues like PCOS.  Or ovulating with PCOS.
