So I’m about two weeks into this no coffee business, and while I’m doing ok without the caffeine, I really, really miss the flavor. In an attempt to compromise, I picked up a couple coffee substitutes at a local health food store and thought I would try them out and maybe post mini reviews on tumblr - just in case anyone else out there needs to scale back. But, um, they’re both TERRIBLE. So I guess I have no advice except to never have anxiety/need to give up coffee in the first place.
Companion: I am so rubbish.
RTD-written Doctor: No, you’re not! You’re brilliant! Remember that wonderful thing you did! Remember that special skill you have that nobody else has? Don’t put yourself down! Where would I be without you, eh?
Moffat-written Doctor: You are bossy, also a control freak, a narcissist, a game player, needy, and also your skirt is just a little too tight.
Companion: Excuse me???

A NYC grad student working on food stamps for her thesis has released a free cookbook for those living on $4/day.
SIG NAL BOO OO OO OOOST
oooooh this is so nice!
I believe it’s important to eat well, even when you’re strapped for cash. It’s good for your health and energy! This cookbook is full of delicious and healthy recipes, the ingredients of which are fairly inexpensive.
I ACKNOWLEDGE THIS WOMAN AS A FELLOW WARRIOR AND A FANTASTIC HUMAN BEING.
Boost so hard. Feeding yourself well is a challenge when you”ve got little income
The brussel sprout hash recipe in here is so effing delicious I can hardly describe it. Also, stupid easy.
LOLing all day at the idea of a twenty page thesis.
For the sake of being discrete, I will leave that anonymous. I’m not out to spread gossip or slander. But if you had her, you’d know. She wrote her graduate thesis on that same paper. 20 pages.
Slander means spreading false information in order to ruin someone’s reputation. Operative word here being false. So you’ve either just admitted that the entire story is bullshit you made up, or demonstrated the fact you’re not nearly as a smart as you think you are and provided evidence that you probably deserved to fail that class.
Her graduate thesis was only 20 pages?
And I love how in his main story he likens her teaching about her thesis topic to bragging. Like, how dare that woman teach a class on something she’d researched extensively. HOW DARE SHE.
