can I get back to you on that?

As we were getting back into the car from a fun-filled afternoon at the Museum of Science and Industry yesterday, I had the following conversation with Bassie: Me: Are you so cute because you have half of my DNA? (context, people; we had just been looking at cloned mice and DNA strands in vials) Bassie: [...]

so much for trying to culture me

My husband takes me on a surprise outing to the Art Institute for the morning, and the most interesting thing to me is this: I followed her half way around the food court to get this shot, too. What I really should have done was go up to her, tell her I got the same [...]

somebody just got a totally rad new digi-cam!

Now you can get all of your “accidentalfeminist” coverage with semi-live, stop-motion technology. First we take you to Justin’s Rock Star Birthday party. Here’s Justin rocking the alley: Justin picked up a waitress, sort of, but then it ended up with her and me discussing bad pick up lines, and me trying to get her [...]

am I not seeing something?

Okay. This is an issue that I have been turning over in my mind for some time now. I just don’t get what is attractive about breasts that are hoisted a good half a foot above their normal center of mass. That is not where nature put them! Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for [...]

Images of myself as a child, pulling the exact same [...]

I give this test to all my girlfriends…

If you score higher than 28, I salute you.

my faith in humanity takes another blow

Two things happened to me yesterday. First, I was at a play, where a young girl (probably about 15) was dressed, well, like a typical young girl. However, this girl was particularly well endowed. As she talked with a group of 15-16 year old boys at intermission, I thought to myself, “I know what they’re [...]

Home for Purim

I heard about this one on NPR. It’s in the grand tradition of “This is Spinal Tap”, “Waiting for Guffman”, and “Best in Show.” Here’s a sneak peek, in honor of the holiday. And for the record, I like it when people talk about Spinal Tap like it’s a real band. It happens more than [...]
