Aaaauuugh do not want Monday.

State of the 'Song
Just wiped out, man.

Romeo and Juliet
I will write about it later, but you should go see it next weekend.

Parental Visit
Hanging in there. Only one blatantly racist comment from them thus far. Also not much commentary about my weight, but we're going clothes shopping today, so I'm not ruling it out. Dad's been getting easily frustrated a lot, as is his new normal, and no one will let me give directions even though I'm the only one who knows where we are. So: the usual.

Dinner
Sel de la Terre. Charcuterie, hanger steak ("as rare as you can legally make it") with a red wine/shallot reduction, steamed asparagus, coconut sorbet. I want to do it again and again. (I am a bit of a charcuterie slut.)

Link Soup
Today it's all rape culture.
* Narrative, Politics, and Sexual Violence.
* The dehumanization of rape, and how it plays into the recent Texas gang rape.
* The Times blogged that they sorta screwed up, but that isn't good enough.

Daily Science
Mini wearable PET scanner i development.

Plans
Work, then parents. Only two more days.

"As rare as you can legally make it" and "as rare as you dare" are two of my standard ways of ordering steak. :)

My sister once got into a fight with a chef by ordering him to make it well done. Well done as in "burn it through".

I thought he was going to attack her with a cleaver.

It is an insult to a good piece of beef. I know a place where the chef would drop a steak in the deep-fryer if someone ordered it well.

Wouldn't surprise me if that's what he did.

To be fair, she was 13 and her tastes have grown more refined since then.

Mine is, "Rare enough so a good vet could still save it."

NYT: as about a hundred commenters there noted: the story needed "more balance"?!? What the f**k is there to balance? Not every story has 2 sides deserving equal notice.

Only 2 more days.

Did you find someone to raise a glass with on Thursday?
