And also excellent, Pint is back!


Coming past Aarhus? If so, beers!

Sadly I have my doubts; we'll be in Copenhagen for 7 days for a conference for Angela (my girlfriend), and afterwards we're going to Munich, Cologne, and Berlin.

Unless, of course, I abandon her to Copenhagen all by her lonesome so that I can carouse elsewhere in Denmark.

Tonight in my carpool home, during a conversation on the poor understanding of lady parts by men, I was challenged by my colleagues (all women) to draw anatomically correct female genitals. And I did. And they were impressed.

to be fair, it's not difficult to draw (|)

I should scan my vulva to show you, it's practically life-like! And drawn in green, because of the line "alien green sex" from William Shatner's skit at the Just for Laughs festival in 2000 which I'm sure you're all familiar with.

Dogen has a vulva, and Sporko has a penis.

Don't mind me, I'm just making a note of this.

I went out tonight, played music, ate cake and came home a dollar richer than when I left.

My best friend and I were once playing with play-doh and she said we should make vaginas. Well, I just stuck my finger in it to make a hole. I mean, she said vagina! What she meant was vulva and I must say, her play-doh vulva was quite excellent. I was very impressed.

I sort of feel like I should add that this was just a few years ago. We're 30. >_>

Also, I tend to be way more easygoing about certain things than I used to be but MAN it drives me insane that most people say vagina when they mean vulva. *twitch*

We had a school-wide event today, after which they served us free dinner with free beer. Anyway, halfway through someone came up to me and said,
"So I heard you drew an amazing vulva."

Everyone needs to be known for something. Familiarity with female genitals ain't a bad option...

I started doing mechanical Turk on Amazon the other day, and I already qualify for some of the better paid tasks. Very Happy. So far I can get about $6 an hour, but that's after only three days, so I'm hopeful I can bump it up to $10 or more in a month.

Hey I keep meaning to check that out, then forgetting. Glad to hear it's working well for you, though!

Huh, it looks interesting. There are ones to transcribe a ~45min audio recording that pay $22. I don't know how long it takes to get a rating qualification of 92 or a confidentiality qualification of 20, or what those even mean, but it sounds like there's at least a slim possibility of making actual money. Unless it takes you 4 hours to transcribe 45min of audio, which it might... it might be a recording of two guys talking while grinding steel and playing the timpani.
