The less dairy I eat, the more intolerant my body becomes. I’m gonna miss you, pizza.
Trying my first audio book at age 29. I love reading but bright lights after 9 p.m. throw my sleep schedule way off. So now I light a candle and listen to a calming Brit narrate “Tarzan of the Apes.”
Smell like this, taste like that. So much love for these sweet little things.
I write copy for a large online media company. I predominantly write in the pets & animals and travel realms, and today I got back a pretty ignorant, offensive rewrite. The article in question describes African safaris as a type of travel, and the editor posed the following: “What if I want to interact with local populations? Any safaris for that?” Once I realized that, yes, she actually inquired about a safari featuring local populations as the attraction, I went off. No, Africans are not part of the scenery. They are actual communities with highly-developed social structures, beliefs, economies and histories. Villages are not museums for you to tour. Africans are not an exhibit to be photographed. I’m normally laid back about work-related issues, but please, get a fucking clue.
Oh Christ. Thanks, Manda.
