I agree – those things are amazing. For plaster walls, a drywall anchor works fairly well, or the toggles that pop back behind the plaster to spread out the weight. Anchoring into mortar is a little trickier, as old mortar is often soft.

I agree re: the numbers. I'd recommend something to remind you of the specific race, or a winged foot added in. For a while, I planned to get a tattoo after every marathon that I complete. I stopped getting tattoos after two races, because every idea I came up ended up more complicated than the previous idea.

Since I cant seem to upload the picture bear with me as I try to describe it.

I think it is good that you are getting a tattoo of a bear.

'Teaching' at an R1 university = getting grant money, pretty much full-stop.

Comment 19 May 2015

There is room for arts but I think it is ridiculous to think that it is even close to the same importance of sciences, engineering, or business.

"Importance"

Comment 19 May 2015

Yeah, that's an absolutely asinine statement re: 'unneeded arts departments'. With hindsight, I wish I'd have taken arts classes while at OSU.

The university is and will remain, without question, Ohio's most redeeming asset for me. I adore it. The rest of it? Eh.

Slid into your DMs. You're welcome for that Serious Eats tip. I evangelize for it pretty aggressively.

Yes you should go there. The Food Lab does a great job of deconstructing recipes and giving how-to articles. My pizza and chili recipes have become [100 emoji] thanks to reading that site, and I now understand breaking recipes down into pretty standard methodologies. Which has gone a long, long way.

Grew up in Sandusky, attended OSU, moved the hell out of Ohio after undergrad graduation and don't plan to return other than for weekends.

ETA: sometimes I stay longer than a weekend to visit with family. But not often.

Hodge I just want to share emails with you sometimes you should email me so we can do that

I'm around-ish, but have fallen away from sports over the past few years (both in general and to a lesser extent at OSU). Community's changed as the site's grown, and I feel far more on the outside of the commentariat than I used to be. Basically I don't have much to say most of the time.
