These pictures of Jupiter taken by the Juno spacecraft are fucking with my emotions; I remember avidly staring at grainy black and white photos of the planets when I was very little. Absolutely breathtaking #astronomy
I wish slow but comfortable luxury long-distance travel by airship were a reality. I would like to just spend a couple of days flying over the oceans to new countries, making friends with the other passengers out of necessity. We'd drink and dance and make merry as we sailed over the cloud cover below us.
I had a caprese salad in Amsterdam served in a bowl that had a puddle of tomato jelly in the bottom that was made with agar agar. It was sooooo good. I want to try to replicate it. 🍅

Probably one of the saddest parts of leaving birdsite was that I’d spent a pretty decent amount of time trying to add and follow a lot more women in tech, and I miss hearing from them.
Help me balance my follows out and suggest some awesome #WomenInTech to follow (cis/trans, it’s all good). Boost this, maybe even reply with yourself, maybe we can get a good list of voices.
