    I almost shot myself trying to read that f*en article. Jeezus motherf*.

    I would love that art history assignment.

    You guys crack us up.

    I don’t think you would shoot yourself if you had that assignment. I had an art history assignment for a medieval art history class that did not specify a specific length of time for observation, but it sounds otherwise similar. We had to pick a single object in a museum, study it, and then write a descriptive essay about it. We also had to sketch ours. I don’t think I spent three hours doing the assignment, but I did spend probably an hour and could have easily spent longer if I’d been required to (and thus had budgeted the time in my day to do so). It’s a very natural type of assignment for art history.

    It’s also similar to what we do in Cultural Anthropology dissertation research commonly. We sit and observe over and over.

    Maybe that’s part of why I also really liked the article.

      #2 loved the article. I’m not saying I haven’t spent that length of time looking at art–I’m a fan of Dutch masters like Bosch and there’s always a lot going on in those pictures. But 3hours in college or today–I have much better things to do with my time. Staring at a painting that long when I could be doing something more active and interesting. Not fun. Note that I did not go into humanities.

    Gosh, just one more reason to be glad I almost never fetter my breasts. Please pass the Crunch-n-munch!

    (OTOH if they counter the bra with a pair of boxer shorts that prevents either (a) sexual assault or even just (b) mansplaining, I’d be willing to consider it a fair balance. Not holding my breath, though.).

    I’ve always thought chickens can make a story funnier. Also clucking. My sister and I once had to cluck our way through a verse of “Jingle Bells” to extricate ourselves from a surprisingly boring visit to a museum one morning.

    Thank you for the link! Came by earlier to thank you and got terribly distracted by the other links! :)

    That cookie recipe is pure evil. I don’t, as a rule, bake cookies from scratch … because the last thing we need is a houseful of warm cookies … but DAMN.

    Glad you enjoyed my food post about Scotland! I’m currently having another bout of the diverticulitis, so food is a contentious subject for me. :-(

    Thanks for the signal boost on the Seventeen magazine letters to the editor! Seventeen across the 1960s is turning out to be richer than I’d expected :)
