Inspired by Worthington Libraries: Blind Date with a Book!
We started with ~40 books. Two hours later, all but four had found homes with library patrons (sorry, Flush, Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, Persepolis, and The Things They Carried, they don’t know what they’re missing).
Now, to send forth a new fleet of exciting books into student arms. Whew!
I wish somebody would do this here.
Apparently NO ONE knows the words to Break Stuff by Limp Bizkit
It’s Good Mustache Thursday. I’ll handle the mustaches, you handle something else, and we might just get the hang of Thursday!
I would do this.
I imagine this is the root of my problems on that front
I feel like there should be at least one more choice.
but I’m not much for dating.
you will burn…
the chicken if you don’t take it out soon.
This is ridiculous on so many levels.
LA Weekly, though, has a great post about it:
This is a Gizmodo intern’s dream. Girl just figured out how to bag 600,000+ page views with some simple anecdotal fluff — she’s well on her way to becoming Intern of the Month. (Also, this isn’t the first time stupid boys have called her ugly/ruined her Google results because they were butthurt she didn’t like them. Been there, over that.)
“… In light of Alyssa’s name-checking smear piece, I’m pretty sure your inbox is being inundated with love letters from hot Copper-Leaf Angel role players right now, but give me a chance. Them jaded NYC singles wouldn’t know Prince Charming — a champion at life, and love, not just Magic, I’m sure of it! — if he slayed them a Thunder Dragon and lay it across their stoop. I, on the other hand, would be glad to let you Infiltrate my Shadowmage anytime. Or whatever…”
I should date Galileo. ::shrug::
maybe we should work out some sort of weekly schedule so things don’t get awkward.
I got Marie Curie.
Often considered the first lady of science, Marie Curie was a pioneer in the field of radioactivity. Not only was she the first woman to receive a Nobel Prize, she’s the only person who’s won the award in two different sciences. A certified workaholic, she and husband Pierre Curie met in the lab and fell in love working together.
I got Darwin:
Darwin’s theories of evolution and natural selection may still be controversial, but Darwin the man was everything but contentious. He was Insightful, deductive, observant, but also very much a procrastinating homebody. He liked to stay in with his wife Emma and their 10 children. He was devoted to his wife, a devout Christian, and always tried to be mindful of her beliefs when discussing his theories.
and mainly just kept thinking that all the comments in-between each question sounded like things Jennifer would say if she were administering a non-scientific quiz about dating scientists.
I think I’d rather date Bill Nye. also, ten children IS A LOT OF CHILDREN.
I got the Darwin too. Sounds like an illness…got The Darwin. FIVE Children is a LOT. TEN is..is….a baseball team with a designated batter! I had no idea he was a devout christian, though. I must read his biography.
I don’t know what to do with any of this information. I do like to think if I were administering a non-scientific quiz about dating scientists, my questions would be more interesting. Jules, if you are picturing me with some sort of clipboard checking things off while making meaningful mmmhmmm noises, that’s pretty accurate.
but come on, what about that question- coffee, wine, or - I don’t drink and neither should he?
I hope the outcome of that answer is - YOU AND YOUR SCIENTIST ARE DEAD. Beverages are a necessary part of human existence. It’s a science fact!
I took the test three times changing my answers slightly, always with the same outcome.
~I guess it’s written in the stars~
My date is -Galileo has been called the “father of modern observational astronomy,” the “father of modern physics,” not to mention the “father of science.” He was also the father of three illegitimate children, so you might want to prepare your folks for that before you bring him home. Still, Galileo made many important discoveries including the moons of Jupiter and, oh, that sun was the center of the solar system. He’s not for the faint of heart.
