I'm gettin' there though!

My name is Stephanie and I'm a chick living in Chicago. Married my best friend (after taking years to convince me to date him) and have a pup, Lizzie. I take TV and movies very seriously, love me some book reading, and am game for foodie adventures. Welcome to my cubbie!

1. Jeff brought up Trapper Keepers last night and now that’s all I can think about 2. I thought I would be cool and hip by trying to make a meal with tofu on Monday and messed it up. Apparently you’re supposed to “squeeze out” the water hours ahead of time. Help! What else am I supposed to know to make delicious tofu?!?!

I have some complicated feelings about kids, but seeing this (like 20 times in a row now) makes my uterus a little less hostile

“How do we reconcile the imperfections of feminism with all the good it can do? In truth, feminism is flawed because it is a movement powered by people and people are inherently flawed. For whatever reason, we hold feminism to an unreasonable standard where the movement must be everything we want and must always make the best choices. When feminism falls short of our expectations, we decide the problem is with feminism rather than with the flawed people who act in the name of the movement…” Roxane Gay, Bad Feminist. (via megwhat)

When someone asks a question just as class should be ending



OK. I felt this way as a student, but now as a professor (-ish)…YES! And you know when it’s the worst? Night classes. There’s always one. One person…two minutes before class ends that wants to drop the nuclear bomb question. Why?!? Why must you ask about racism, slavery, sexism, or patriarchy at 9:58 pm?!? Why didn’t you ask this at 6:30??????

When my boyfriend picks a fight with me during that time of the month



Last night to a tee

The moment you realize it has been a month since you complained about a leaky sink to your landlord.

I think that just about 75% of the male babies I come across look like Toby Jones

“I am made for autumn. Summer and I have a fickle relationship, but everything about autumn is perfect to me. Wooly jumpers, Wellington boot, scarves, thin first, then thick, socks. The low slanting light, the crisp mornings, the chill in my fingers, those last warm sunny days before the rain and the wind. Her moody hues and subdued palate punctuated every now and again by a brilliant orange, scarlet or copper goodbye. She is my true love.” ― Alys Fowler
