Supernatural, a TV show about a duo of demon-fighting brothers, doesn’t have the most viewers. But it’s lasted nine seasons so far — partly because of its passionate fans, who take their love to Twitter, Tumblr and fan fiction websites. That raises a question: What matters more, ratings or fans’ enthusiasm?

BEST SHOW EVER. Next to Buffy of course.
Making this Black Bean Pumpkin Chili (slow cooker) for the second time. It’s so good with a little sour cream. There’s a spiciness and a natural sweetness to it. Great for a rainy day.
Countries doing it right.
I keep forgetting to bring my camera to work. I only remember when I walk in and see all the beautiful colors…red, white, pink, and green! They’re turning!
Some cool websites my teacher showed us today. You visit and answer trivia quesiosn and each time you answer (right or wrong) 10 pieces of kibble are donated to an animal shelter or 10 pieces of rice are donated to The World Food Programme.
The animal one was created by a 12 year-old that was inspired by the rice website.
Almost started crying during class thinking about all the cats that need homes. Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
It’s been so long since I’ve posted anything, that I forgot how. I’m having a hard time dealing with my new living situation, but not for reasons that are typical. At least I don’t think they are. (I also have a hard time with commas…better get that under control before becoming a teacher…)
I’ve spent the last 3 years either living with organic farmers or myself. I’ve been immersed in a small, but growing, sector of society where everyone kind of thinks the same way. It’s been hard being thrown back into mainstream American culture. I don’t feel like I fit in.
I’m used to people that cringe when something isn’t composted and for that very reason, smelly trash isn’t really a reality. What is this smelly trash can? It’s gross. Why don’t they compost? Why all of the sudden is it weird that I compost food?
I’m not used to living in a house with air-conditioning. Is 75 degrees low? Is asking for the thermostat to be on 78 outrageous? I honestly don’t know. I also don’t want to spend all my money on utilities. This house is 3500 square feet…it takes a lot of energy to cool a house this big.
What is this microwave contraption? And how does one trust what goes on inside of it?
That’s really all I have at the moment. These are first world problems, I know. Which makes me feel worse that I stress over them. At least everyone is nice and cleanly. No drama.
