one thing I want to say today relates to my current job. (As you guys know, I’ve left off working in science labs to work an office job in sci comm. My role is kind of … nebulous and involves a lot of “oh, Elodie can help you…

rly cool thing to do: train yourself to have they/them be your reflexive go-to pronoun 

It works pretty well and most people don’t even notice, let alone complain.

it saves me a lot of hesitation and processing, too.

It’s important to change the pronoun you use once you do know a person’s pronoun preference though (summat that I’m working on)

I have incorrectly been saying ‘burqa’ when I meant ‘niqab’ for maybe my whole life.

reblogging for informational purposes. i will come collect you if you reblog from me in a way that disrespects any of my sisters. 

educating yourself on other cultures is v important

do it

I thought niqab was just a description of the face covering? Does it refer to a specific cloak style garment?

I see a load of women in Bradford wearing a hijab and face veil (which I thought was called a niqab) with either loose clothing or a jilbab. It’s not an all in one face-hair-body covering thing.

Moving house before and after. I moved all the boxes in to the spare room and unpacked them into the other rooms. I took me about 8 20/10s spread out over a week and a half. It really helped to concentrate the house moving chaos in one room and to have pleasant other rooms to live in whilst I was doing it. Moving house before and after.

Fact: Unlike the gay agenda™, the bisexual agenda contains a 15 minute break for snacks between sessions.

Fact: The asexual agenda is entirely made of snacks, with a 15 minute break for all out anarchy

Fact: The pansexuals, with their extreme love for kitchen ware, make all the snacks.

Honey is a food oddity in that it doesn’t spoil. Here’s the chemistry behind why, as well as an explanation of how bees make honey: http://wp.me/p4aPLT-qn

The bees don’t cap the honeycomb cells with wax until it’s dehydrated enough to keep.

Fun fact: if you approach an employee and insist that they go ‘check the back’ for an item that’s not on the shelf, there is a 90% chance that they’ll go to the back room, scratch their ass and check their text messages for five minutes, and come back out with a sympathetic smile and a ‘Sorry!’ because they know without even looking that the stock isn’t there.

Or the old “can you ask a manager?”

As a retail employee, I can verify that this is 100% accurate.

Yup at Michael Kors and Abercrombie we’d just go in the back chill and talk shit and snack for a bit anytime someone asks for something from the back, managers don’t even care they just laugh

I’ve been asked this at the library.

To be fair many libraries have stacks where overflow books live.
