May your team, be it Patriots or Falcons, win tonight! :D :D

(Uhh...I'm black and from the South, tho. So I gotta go with my Falcons. No hard feelings, y'know?)

Also, some tips from a former-medical-assistant-and-would-be-nursing-student:


-If you're gonna hit the spicy hot wings, fries, etc., please be sure to drink lotsa water, too! It isactually possible to irritate your gastrointestinal (GI) tract with too many spicy foods. (Yes, this goes for us people of color-not just white people.)

-When the commercials come on and you have to use the bathroom, use the bathroom. Your bladder loves you very much and yes, it's designed to stretch to accommodate different volumes of urine (it's why we call the bladder tissue "transitional epithelium"), but it's still good to go ahead and go when you need to!

-If you'll be sitting for most of the game, try to stand up and stretch your limbs a bit. No need for cramps! And contrarily, if you're standing, be sure to sit down and get off your feet for a while.

-Are you wearing your team's hat? Make sure that it's not too tight on your head so you don't run the risk of headaches!

-And last but not least, have a blast and may the best team win!! :D



--Love,


Amarie

Excellent advice, whether rooting for the Patriot-bots and Lord Michigan or LC Atlanta.

Lord Michigan = Tom Brady, who went to Michigan and is styled as the Darth Vader to Belicheck's Palpatine.

Neither of them have a great reputation, but most people would probably hang out with Brady because his wife is a supermodel, rather than Tebow's ostentatious religious practice.

Brazilian, as it turns out, (and I knew this because she did a catwalk at the Olympic Opening Ceremonies) but could certainly pass for white, and yes, light-haired.

The part about the bladder is very good advice! I'm sure my bladder isn't what it was since I had that job with the limited rest breaks and toilet access. Not healthy at all to hang on too long. I'm just home from watching Hidden Figures (SQUEE) and oh boy, I felt for Katherine Goble having to go all the way across into another building just to get to a coloured bathroom. That's not only unjust and humiliating, that's downright dangerous.

Thank you for the generous correction! I ought to have picked up on the difference between quoting the language of the time and actually using it myself. I apologise for my clumsiness and for making your advice necessary.

The movie was super entertaining and interesting (I love space and we can't possibly have enough stories about amazing women of colour!) but of course there's that gulf between Hollywood and actual facts to keep in mind. I didn't guess that that was one of the liberties taken, though.

Definitely dinosaurs as a kid! I liked Brachiosaurus best because it's so tall and friendly-looking. And hadrosaurs with various ornate head decorations are also very cool. Space came later, I think it was a combination of watching Star Trek and the National Geographic poster of all the Apollo astronauts (all standing on the moon at the same time - even the command module pilots - all with their helmets off, while we're talking artistic liberties!) that I put up on my bedroom wall when I was 14. And then I met my partner who is also into space, and he showed me that we could watch space shuttle launches live over the internet and we watched every space program documentary we could put our hands on.

Among books I have on my shelf: The Mercury 13, about the women who went through all the same training as the male astronauts but never got to go to space, and one about Yuri Gagarin published in the early sixties, with as much information as an American journalist was allowed to find out about the first man in space - a real period piece!
