Rather infrequently, Mittens decides to jump into my lap. And then the weird bitey cuddle fest begins.

I do not recommend this. But it was fun anyway!

"We often talk about the “leaky pipeline of STEM” as a way to talk about how women and people of color drop out of STEM careers at alarmingly high rates, but it is time to abandon that language. We’re not talking about a passive system here, where people just happen to drip out of the pipeline. No, we’re talking about a system that actively creates pressure. If you take a large pipe, attach it to a smaller pipe and then a smaller one, while still pushing the same amount of water through, what’s going to happen? Either your pipe is going to spring pressure-driven leaks or you’re going to have to have holes drilled to relieve it. We’re not talking about a leaky pipeline of STEM, we’re talking about a gorram sprinkler system, actively pushing out people who were set up to fail from the beginning by the very system itself.

There are very real problems in the sciences. But right now the field is caught in an auto-catalytic cycle, where people point out ways in which we’re failing at outreach, the people in positions of power dig in their heels with cries of “but *we* weren’t offended!”, the same people then wring their hands and wonder why there isn’t more diversity in science… and continue to ignore us when answers to that question are given. And if we keep making excuses for the smaller things that hurt various groups, it’s never goin to change."

I hand sewed a bow-tie and collar for Mittens. Mom helped a lot.

Did you know you can listen to the song on tumblr’s player as you’re writing your comment about it?

I love whimsical, childlike piano in the beginning and how it really rounds out to almost gospel notes before the vocals.

And everyone loves that falsetto.

—With any song, I think the first verse makes me stay, —

"Lay down with me/tell me no lies/just hold me close/don’t patronize me"

—But I come back for the chorus—

"Cause I can’t make you love me/if you don’t."

—And if you really want to impress someone when you sing a song, remember the bridge and what key it’s in—

Tuesday

Today,
I went fishing and caught three striped bass,
watched a colleague surgically implant tags into a dozen other fish,
came home,
consulted a friend on his next hair style,
got spotlighted in a career blog,
made a pizza from scratch (yes, the dough too),
ate it,
went to yoga,
came home,
and washed my hair.

And it’s only Tuesday.

I shouldn’t even leave the house.
