My friend Dave told me he thinks Captain Picard (the character) is gay. Dave, who is also gay, thinks everyone else is gay too, so I totally disagreed.

Now I'm not so sure.

Okay, so I was all ready to be mildly and gently amused by this clip, until it got to the part with "Darmok and Gillard at Tenagra," and I literally cried laughing.

I am such a geek.

Aw, crud.

Russ Feingold is not going to run for president in '08. Crud.

My mildly uninformed opinion of him was that he was pretty cool. Someone tell me something bad he voted for so I don't feel so bad.

Yay! Zuzu's back!

Zuzu has returned to Feministe. Phew! Guest posting is kind of a lot of pressure.

But I'm glad Zuzu is back and nothing came of the whole litigation creepy thing.

While you're there, read this post where some people are offended by this image.

To which I say, really? Offended? Is snark dead? Because I thought it was hilarious.

Although I, of course, am a bad, bad person, because I also thought this was hugely funny.

Am I a bad liberal as well as a bad feminist?

So...someone in Radio, hire me!

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Midland

"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.

I know I haven't been around much. I've kind of had my hands full with teething babies.

Happy Halloween!

Did I mention I'm studying primates this semester?

And yes, I know I need a new couch. Feel free to buy me one.

Took this right before we went trick-or-treating, which was fun.

It's kind of nice to be a parent for the holidays. It takes away the slight shame one feels at getting over-excited about things like costumes at the age of 28.

And I promise I didn't give the baby any candy. Most of it got passed back out to other trick-or-treaters.
