Girl logic :: what I think before I eat a piece of pizza

I listened to It’s Been a Minute, the one where Sam Sanders interviews Iliza Shlesinger about Girl Logic. (Find the podcast at https://www.npr.org/podcasts/510317/its-been-a-minute-with-sam-sanders) Iliza relates everything to pizza to keep things relate-able. Like Sam, I have always been amazed at how few thoughts men tend to have and how many women tend to have. So different.

Do you know how many thoughts I have before I eat pizza? A lot. I’ll share.

  • what toppings are on it?
  • are there paper towels? If it’s pepperoni, I’ll need to wipe all the oil off before I take a bite.
  • where is it from? I might have to pass, depending on where it came from.
  • what kind of crust?
  • did I exercise today?
  • do I have time slated for the gym later this week?
  • will I look like a glutton if I eat this?
  • can I look respectable/cute/etc. and eat pizza?
  • would eating pizza be a good or bad example for my kids?
  • what will people think if they see that I’m eating pizza?
  • is there any lact-aid around here?
  • am i even hungry?
  • how much did the farmers get paid?
  • if I eat pizza, how much would be appropriate?
  • will my clothes be able to withstand a grease spot? argh, all my clothes have grease spots….
  • am I wearing something dark in case I get sauce on myself?
  • is it hot? will I need a fork?
  • should someone else eat before me?

What are your thoughts before you eat pizza?

What beekeepers do when it’s cold out

beekeeping magazines, bee culture, american bee journal

See all the sticky notes hanging outside the edges?

When the weather turns cold, I think about caring for my bees. All year long, I add bookmarks to my magazines — things to remember for next year, an interesting topic that isn’t my main focus but still worth a read when I have more time, something to pass on to another beekeeper, and especially things that I can use to keep my beekeeping class materials up to date.

New research, new products to consider, etc. are all fair game for including in my class materials. My materials have to change because the bees’ world is changing and the approaches to dealing with that world is also changing. How well will I be heard if I stand at the orator’s perch on the town square when everyone is now driving to the suburbs and using their personal devices to hear new ideas? It’s only fair to my students to give them twenty-first century tools in our current state of affairs.

What new practice or piece of beekeeping information are you mulling right now?
