Number one song that you’re jamming to right now: Tártaro by Buscabulla 

Coolest thing you’ve done while at NPR: Once, I observed as Susan Stamberg interviewed the famous artist David Hockney. My art nerd heart fluttered. I also got to be a helping hand during NPR’s Nobel Prize of Literature coverage. A group of us got to the headquarters at 6 a.m., had coffee and doughnuts and waited for the Swedish academy to make the announcement. I saw and worked behind-the-scenes for NPR’s fabulous Book Concierge. Another day I wandered D.C. by bus, reporting gear in tow, to interview people on buses for Neda Ulaby, an arts correspondent. In November, I worked the Kennedy Center Honors awards show with super producer/reporter Elizabeth Blair. On the red carpet. I saw Linda Carter, Jeff Goldblum, Aretha Franklin, Don Cheedle, not to mention I rubbed elbows with pro reporters from the AP and Reuters. Finally, on Dec. 9, I spoke with Scott Simon on-air about my family’s scrumptious Puerto Rican holiday recipes.

Top #NPRLife moment(s): My very first day because I got to attend my first Tiny Desk concert. It was Corrine Bailey Rae! Writing and sharing my grandfather’s story with the NPR staff for the NPR Oye blog meant the world. That time when the arts desk needed someone to cover Kanye West’s tour cancellation and it turned into a full-fledged story. Talk about adrenaline.The day I got to be in the recording studio, *behind the mic*, for the Weekend Edition segment with Scott Simon. That’s exactly where I wanted to be, but would have never known. Connecting with hometown folks because who knew there were so many El Pasoans at NPR?! Every day because I’d walk in and be amazed at each new thing I learned, each new person I met and the work I was trusted to do.

Dream Tiny Desk artist: Prince (RIP) or the OG Selena Quintanilla (RIP)

What’s next for you: Working as a copywriter and editor until I find a public media job!

Advice for future interns: It’s a whirlwind. I know. Your first day is packed with training, coffee and food, then you’re plucked from the crowd in Studio 1 and walked to your desk. Now what? This will fly by. Take full advantage. You want to get the most out of this experience, right? Work hard. Make connections. Learn from the pros. Be persistent. Be kind. Finally, don’t doubt yourself because you are unique. You have independent interests and might have knowledge of topics other don’t. Or maybe you’ll help others see new perspectives.That could help widen the audience net NPR hopes to reach. That’s why we are here!


 newt: because we’re all in this together

all glade but newt and the greenie: WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER ONCE WE KNOW THAT WE ARE WE ALL STARS

anonymous asked:

Hey jsyk the reason qwerty keys are arranged the way they are is because in typewriters it was more common for them to get jammed if two often used keys were right next to each other, so qwerty separates all the most used keys and is basically designed to not jam typewriters. I guess people got used to it idk?

that.. makes sense.

Honestly he looks so friggin heartbroken like how many rejections must he have faced from his sleazy pick-up tactics only to get one that felt like it was going right this time and to finally feel appreciated as himself and feel like he had someone who cared a little about him in that way just after this episode nobody can tell me he is a womaniser or that he’d cheat on anyone he just wants love…fuck.

[Masterlist] [Guideline]

With great determination she put on her coat over her apron and, after a moment’s thought, took two freshly made Jammy Devils from her cupboard. Where a battery ram cannot work, really good shortcrust pastry can often break trough.
Unseen Academicals

(I’m so bad at taking pics. They look way more golden irl. Let’s say it’s my phone fault, right?)

Again, Jammy Devils are a “fine example of an Ankh-Morpork delicacy- hot, sweet and cheap. Just the thing for a snack in the middle of a night shift.” (dixit Nanny Ogg) What more could you wish?

That recipe is really an easy one and I’m sure I’ll make it again with my son. (I had a hard time saving these for the pic, he was determined to eat all the batch)

I used brown sugar because it was in my cupboard, and raspberry jam because I felt like it.

       Jammy Devils

100g unsalted butter - 75g caster sugar - 1 egg, beaten - 200g plain flour - 3-4 large tablespoons of jam

Preheat the oven to 18O°C/Gas 4. Grease an individual tart/bun baking tray.Cream together the butter and sugar, then add the egg, a little at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually stir in the flour until a soft dough is formed. Stir in a generous tablespoon of the jam until you get a ripple effect. Using about a dessertspoonful of the mixture for each devil, spoon the mixture into the bun tin. Gently pat down and place a dollop - about half a teaspoon - of jam on the centre of each one. Bake in the top part of the oven for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown on top.

For tomorrow… well I’m not sure yet, but I’ll probably give a try to the Brodequin rôti Façon Ombres (aka Man’s Boots in Mud)

More Discworld cookery

So can I just say how ridiculous Yungtown was when he first started his channel? It’s four in the morning and I haven’t slept yet I just was all, yo lets watch Luke’s old videos please help me even though I don’t regret it  

Like, in the Hook video when he asked Caddy what it was like living in London and Caddy flipped and asked if Luke thought just because he was British, he had to live in London and Luke’s all, “….Yeah.”

“Today’s episode of Draw That is being brought to you by Dunkin’ Donuts coffee. It makes your urine smell horrible.” I SWEAR I SNORTED BECAUSE I LAUGHED WAY TOO HARD AT THAT.




someone please make me go to bed i’m an embarrassment right now

This is actually an ask response to a wonderful prompt from memoriesinatrunk, but in tumblr’s usual genius fashion, when I tried to post it that way, tumblr promptly ate the post. In any case, this didn’t go quite where I thought it was going to, but that’s not unusual, right? Standard warning for gratuitous smushiness/fluff. And huge thanks to adrenalin211 for the encouragement and input:)

Happy Fics Rec!! (Part 1)

We all are really stressed and tired at the moment and I think we need a little break and take a nap and go out and just desactivate all our Tumblrs/Twitter cause that is the right thing to do… but since when we do the right thing????? Given this, I concluded that the only way to de-stress us is reading fics, but not just any fic.. we need HAPPY fics, those that make you smile, laugh, and crash your face into a pillow of giggles, screams and dead.

Soooooo.. this is the first part because idk how many time the babygate thing will last and yeah… just enjoy :))))

pour some sugar on me

Harry’s a bit clueless, and Louis’ a barista with clever hands.  

i’ll bring the bread because boy, you’re the jam

Or the AU where Harry loses his camera. Louis finds it. They fall for each other via email.

The One Where Harry Really Doesn’t Have Ten Cats

Or, the AU where Harry is a pet-sitter for the rich and famous, and Louis is rich and famous.

nothing else but us right here

Louis sighs and gives himself a mental pep talk as he smooths his jumper down over his hips. He can do this. He can resist the draw of Harry Styles, because he is a responsible, mature adult, and as much as he wants to tangle his fingers in that mess of hair and map those ridiculous tattoos with his tongue, he does not want to get his daughter’s favorite teacher fired.

My Friend

Louis almost can’t believe it when he gets the text: I have a friend who thinks ur cute. But when Harry won’t tell him who his mysterious ‘friend’ is, Louis decides he’ll just have to figure it out for himself.

Your Best Line Ever

University AU, in which Harry has a terrible job and lies about his name to drunk people, Louis is one of the drunk and has to move out of his flat, Liam shaves his hair because he fights with Zayn, Zayn protects Liam from creepy stalkers and Niall always has a solution, because he knows just about every person relevant! (The shampoo bottle part is just everything)

be with you day and night

[louis inherits a demon cat. harry is a cat whisperer.]

i’ll breathe your air into my lungs

five phases of their relationship in a world where harry smokes a lot and skips school and hates everyone except his boyfriend and louis is in plays and is loved by everyone and they work even though nobody gets how.

like an animal (i wanna feel you from the inside)

Louis leans a little closer. It’s not difficult – not with the way he’s already pressed so close, straddling Harry’s hard hips with Harry’s equally hard dick nestled tightly between his cheeks.

The paramedic clears his throat and looks away.

(Harry and Louis get a little stuck. Literally.) (No but listen, no no listen, I know how it sounds and no… this is one of the cuuuuuuutest fics ever it’s just… you neeeeeed to read this, for real, hear me out on this, just trust me)

Have You Coming Back Again

college au (I need to say more?…)


This came to me after seeing the spoilers for Cliffhanger and it demanded to be written. Just some banter between Toby and Happy involving a cop and some handcuffs. 

“You had to keep it up, didn’t you?” Happy was pissed. Toby insisted his stupid plan would work and now they were handcuffed, pressed against the hood of the cop car being read their rights. 

“It would have worked,” Toby defended, not willing to accept defeat so easily. 

“Shut up,” Happy spit out through clenched teeth. “We’re in enough of a jam without you making it worse.” 

“What’s mall cop over there going to do?” Toby asked with an arrogant air. “He’s on the phone with Cabe and we’ll be on our way to Walter in no time.” 

Moving the phone away from his mouth, the cop spoke. “Who you calling mall cop, string bean?” 

Happy glared at Toby before turning to the cop. “Ignore him, officer, he’s not right in the head.”

“I don’t doubt that,” he said, phone back at his ear and listening intently. Happy chuckled as she could hear Cabe ripping the guy a new one. 

“You know, I figured you’d be out of those by now.” 

“These are zip ties, idiot, not traditional handcuffs.” Even as she said the words, she still fidgeted to free her wrists, but to no avail. 

“Traditional handcuffs? I knew you were kinky.” 

If looks could kill, Toby Curtis would be six feet under. He kept talking though. “I always pictured this differently, to be honest,” Toby’s eyebrows quirked up and he looked Happy up and down. “Never did I think you’d be cuffed, though. Me, yes.” 

Even with her hands behind her back, Happy elbowed the shrink so hard in the ribs he staggered back and nearly fell to the ground. 

“What was that for?” he managed as he gasped for air. 

“Shut it.” Happy was growing angrier by the second when the cop walked back over. 

“Who knew Homeland hired weirdoes?” The cop cut Happy’s zip tie and she shot him a look. 

“Him, miss, not you,” the cop made sure to clarify. “You know, I could keep his on and still book him. Bring him down to the precinct?” 

“Tempting, but no. He’s needed for this.” 

The cop shrugged and cut Toby loose, the doc grinning in victory. “I knew you were on your way to forgiving me.” 

“Not even close,” she told him, her face deadpan as she snatched the hat from his head and tossed it down the side of the highway. As she jumped into the truck, she debated leaving him there when the passenger door opened and Toby slid in.
