Reading List

First order of business: Southern Expat, if this doesn’t convince you that chicken and waffles is a thing, I don’t know what will:

Second: we need to do some reading ’round here. JOB’s short story collection, Bird’s Nest in Your Hair, Lost in the Cosmos, Ellen Finnigan’s The Me Years. Rally Korrektiv, rally!


  1. I’m waiting for the audiobooks.

    (or…summer…but my intentions are golden)

    Chicken-and-waffles is a thing, but not a southern thing, in much the same way as corned-beef-and-cabbage is a thing, but not an Irish thing. It’s a diasporic dish.

    Imperatrix locuta est; causa finita est.

    Regarding the Reading Klub: I started reading ahead in Lost in the Cosmos back in January, and, after a few interruptions, have reached the first of the two ‘space odyssey’ sections.

    I’m ready to start a group-read whenever.

    Hello. Since I can’t post, I’ll put this short thing I wrote about heliocentrism under a comment; I had added it under the one below, but would prefer to repeat it here. I’d be grateful for your comments on it, although I realise it’s not directly related to the topic above:

    If the earth rotates around its axis at one thousand miles an hour (and at a much faster speed around the sun), then: (i) if the air above it does not move, why wouldn’t this influence the distance/time travelled by aeroplanes – ie if the earth moves, why isn’t this taken into account; (ii) if the air above the earth also moves at the same speed, why don’t, for example, leaves blow in an air current of 1000 miles an hour, whereas they do at a speed of, say, 1020 miles an hour; (iii) if there is a distinction between a moving air above the earth and wind in terms of their effects on moving objects, how can this be explained, rather than asserted. And is not also then unlikely that the earth travels around the sun.

    I had wondered if much of cosmology was invented for political reasons: to undermine religion and in order therefore to encourage technological advancement and a change in values, although I had wondered if certain developments, such as plane travel, might even have been held up until the view of the universe had consolidated.

  5. The Duffer says

    Y’all ever read anything by Robert Stone? Specifically “The Ascent of Mt Carmel.”


  6. Lays also came out with Spicy Sriracha and Cheesy Garlic Bread.
