    April is bulk trash month in my town and I wanted to get everything prepped for dragging to the curb next weekend. As long as I'm (still) waging war on pantry moths, might as well purge. Then I woke up at 2:30 a.m. Thursday with a stomach ache, and the same early Friday morning because I was an idiot and ate normally Thursday. All I've eaten since Friday morning is crackers. I risked a banana this morning. I barely have the energy to brush my teeth so the cleaning has to wait. Even the idea of doing laundry is too much and I've ordered underwear and sweatpants from Amazon.

    Late Show With Stephen Colbert

    They ran a screen announcing that the show was recorded before the events in Christchurch, New Zealand. Is that what you mean?

    So I guess the FJ answer wasn't kettle? Or French? Or flugel?

    I got Albany before they came back from commercial to reveal the clue. My thinking went: Albany. Columbus? No, idiot, Albany. Hartford? NO! Albany! Because I only know the capitals of states I've lived in. WTF with West Side Story?! I'm not sure even I would've got that without the embarrassingly bad accent, but it sure didn't help.

    Pet Peeves

    Godless vending machine did not put mocha in my mocha latte. Also lied about accepting $5 bills and then got tetchy about whether to read my credit card. I blame EDT. If it wasn't dark in the morning again, after I'd adjusted to the natural change of light in the mornings, I wouldn't stay in bed until the last possible minute, which means I would have time to make coffee and have breakfast before coming to work at 8 and wouldn't have to interact with our machine overlords. I also blame spring break, which I do not get to take, because all of the food outlets on campus are closed. Life. Don't talk to me about life.

    Yes, maybe that's it. He has the most annoying voice and speaking manner I can remember among recent contestants.

    Which Podcasts Fuel Your Listening Pleasure?

    The idea behind of Throughline is great--providing context for current events--but the guy sounds like such an airhead (as we used to say) that I want to smack him.

    This is the logo for Mark VII, producers of 60s and 70s TV staples like Dragnet, Emergency, and Adam-12: My friend's father used to call it the Grimy Paw.

    Season Three Talk: FFwSB

    Didn't FF already do a piece on the Sackers? Not that they don't deserve to be reviled at every opportunity, but I thought this episode was a repeat at first.

    I only know 5x5 from Buffy and from that context I interpreted it to mean something like "copy that", "Roger" and the like.
