I get the feeling that academics are very averse to photographs.  I have to say that it drives me nuts that they will use photos (particularly on university web sites) that are obviously old enough to be middle school children.

I have had at least a half-dozen encounters with folks who, when I met them in person, were considerably more gray or bald or wrinkled or what-have-you than their online presentations would leave you to believe.  Not just a little.  Recognizing someone who went from having a lot of hair to none at all is a bit rough.

I do understand the desire to make a good impression or to having an attachment to a particular image of yourself.  I also realize that photographs don’t always do the best job of capturing someone.  I just wish it wasn’t so hard to recognize people at conferences.

Kohlrabi Catcher July 11, 2014

I got this very weird vegetable from our CSA:

I wasn’t sure what it was at first, but it’s apparently kohlrabi. I’d heard of it but never eaten it. After asking on Facebook and searching the Internet, I now have a million ways to prepare it but opted for throwing it in some tikka masala sauce for a first go round.

Whenever I cook, Teradog and Gigadog hang around the kitchen. Or maybe it’s more appropriate to say they consume the entirety of the kitchen floor space. They know the command “out,” something I came up with after many near-death kitchen catastrophes. However, I still like to provide them with samples of my cooking as much as possible because they’re a quite appreciative audience. Through their sampling, I discovered that Teradog likes pretty much all vegetables except romaine lettuce. Since I was dicing the kohlrabi, I decided to see if he’d like some, as well.  (Just so you know, throwing food and videotaping simultaneously isn’t all that easy.)

Gigadog also liked the kohlrabi, but if you try to play ‘catch’ with her, it bounces off her nose and she looks annoyed at having to wander over to its landing spot.  I guess some food isn’t worth it.
