All moved in to Baltimore! Well, not all moved in. But all our stuff is here, the cat has stopped stress peeing blood (there was a super fun trip to the pet ER last night right after we got in) and we’ve got our WiFi up and running, so basically now we just have to get everything out of boxes. YAY.
1) How did SkyMall get my email address?
2) How did it take SkyMall this long to get my email address?
No, I don’t have any questions about the yeti statue wearing bunny ears. That’s one of the few things that makes total sense to me in this world.
Please purchase the Yeti statue for your new apartment, megsokay
It’s always a fight to get him into the carrier until we’re at the vet, at which point it becomes his favorite place in the world. (at Pet E.R.)
Victory pizza because it’s just now 6 pm and everything is already in our new apartment.
Can’t tell if my mom is excited that I’m moving or that I got peed on by the cat…
This is the face(ish) of a cat who has refused to make eye contact since peeing in his carrier on my lap a few mins ago.
This is the face of a person whose cat peed in his carrier on her lap within the first 5 minutes of the trip.
Moving day. Sweaty, gross, stressed. But will be moved into Baltimore by tonight. Yay!
"Consider the results from a 2013 study of more than 24,000 students from 22 different American colleges. When asked if they’d lose respect for a man or a woman who “hooked up a lot,” 28 percent of men said “yes” for a woman but “no” for a man. (Only 4 percent of women said the same thing.) Another 2013 study of almost 8,000 students at a Midwestern university arrived at a similar conclusion: Both men and women disapproved more of a woman who had casual sex (defined as sex with someone whom they’ve known for less than one month) than of a man. Even more interestingly, these studies reveal that guys who seek out casual sex are the ones who are more likely to disrespect females with the same interest. For example, in one study referenced, each additional hookup reported was associated with a 4 percent increase in the odds of men holding the double standard (while the opposite was true of women). To put it another way, “sluttier” men are more likely to slut-shame women—or at least, hold negative views toward women whose promiscuity approximates their own. This not only exposes a serious hypocrisy, but it seems counterproductive: Disrespecting women on whom your casual sex depends can only lower your chances of finding willing partners in the future, right? So why would slutty guys feel this way?"
So of course I got a terrible night’s sleep and woke up at 4:30 am after a nightmare in which the moving truck left me on the side of the road in the middle of Iowa, weirdly, where I found two dudes who were in a competition to see who could do the most cocaine before their bus arrived and they both died. YAY.
