Apparently, Seattle is hot in the summer?

There's some horrible stomach flu going around at tEP, Adam's fraternity, so I text him everyday to make sure he's avoiding his brothers and still alive.
Sharmin: are you still alive? 9:41 PM
Adam : Yeah 9:42 PM
Sharmin: maybe you should poke yourself in the tummy to make sure since i'm not around to do it 9:42 PM
Adam : ? 9:48 PM
Sharmin: if you wriggle, you're alive. otherwise you're probably dead! or a zombie!!!! 9:49 PM
Sharmin: hm sounds like you discovered you're a zombie and don't want to tell me. as long as you don't eat me or give me prion disease i'll still love you? 9:55 PM
Sharmin: i don't know what that is but i'm scared. <3??? 11:41 PM
Adam : That was my zombie impression. I'm fine now 11:42 PM

As a follow up to this, I am updating to inform you that people do naturally walk in circles!
Six walkers forged through a flat, forested region of Germany. Three trekked through the Sahara desert in southern Tunisia. (A sand storm stopped further testing in the desert). All walkers wore GPS receivers so that the researchers could analyze their routes.

The results, published today in the journal Current Biology, showed that no matter how hard people tried to walk in a straight line, they often ended up going in circles without ever realizing that they were crossing their own paths.

About a year ago, Adam was pretty adamant about not shaving. (I'm so unintentionally witty). His sister and I were complaining about his lack of sense:
Sharmin:  i should have adopted a more lysistrata-like approach
Sharmin: i think i threatened to stop kissing him but never followed through
Hannah:  ah ah tmi
Sharmin :  SORRY
Hannah:  my brother and i are like bill clinton and the military
Hannah:  the gay military
Later, she pointed out:
Hannah:  i just like to think of adam as a sexless object
Hannah: gender-neutral, if you will
Sharmin :  hahahah
Hannah:  i mean sure he plays "sports" but not manly sports
Sharmin :  its true!
(He fences, plays golf and tennis, and likes to bike far away on his road bike. But not with no handlebars.)

People who pronounce Pakistan with nasal a's.
Daniel:  if it wasn't for some combination of you and obama
Daniel: i'd never think about it
Sharmin:  lol
Daniel:  instead, it just sort of sounds weird when i say it
Daniel: but only after it's come out
Daniel: and i've thought about it
Despite finding it horrifying that he continues to do it, I'm honored to be in such exalted company.

Development branches of Android, the Google mobile phone operating system, are named after desserts. So far there's been Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, and Flan (Eclair and Flan are not out yet). However, this poses a problem. What do you do with later letters? Firestone and I have been brainstorming, but require suggestions:
haystacks, halva
ice cream?(two words...) icing? (not really a dessert)
kulfi? kheer? (too ethnic) kringle?
mousse, macaroon,meringue, mochi,
otap (ethnic?)
pudding, parfait, pizzelle, popsicle,pie
quiche? (I don't know how common sweet quiches are, if at all)
rasgulla? rugelach? (also ethnic)
sorbet, spumoni
tiramisu, taffy, torte, truffle
uštipci? (definitely too ethnic)
yogurt? (ambiguous, as it needs to be frozen to be dessert)
zeppoli? (how many people know about this sans wikipedia?)
Come on internets, I'm sure you have exciting, one word desserts that are not totally obscure to suggest :). Here, have some inspiration:

with thanks to Crystal and Scarola for suggestions :)

Firestone was telling me about different charedi subgroups...
Daniel: the lubavitcher rebbe was chabad's longtime figurehead
Daniel: who they worshiped as a messiah
Sharmin: oh. what is a rebbe?
Sharmin: is it like a rabbi?
Sharmin: only
Sharmin: lolcat
Daniel: yes but it's more, besides adding lolcat
Sharmin: hahaha
Daniel: it's like, general leader
Daniel: it originated as an integrated political/religious community leader in the shtetls

An amusing feature of Westin hotels led to this conversation...
Sharmin:  alsoooo
Sharmin: exciting thing!!!!
Sharmin: the showers at westin hotels have two shower heads. it makes no sense
Eric:  ...
Sharmin:  unless they were anticipating you having a shower with a smaller friend
Eric:  er... how are these heads arranged
Eric:  wtf??
Sharmin:  you can have them on different settings?
Eric:  i will ask OT [Anandtech Off Topic Forum]
Eric: this question needs resolution
Sharmin:  did you ask ATOT?
Eric:  yes
Eric:  omg
Eric:  you can chat live with a retail concierge
Eric:  we could ask them what it's for!
Sharmin:  are you going to ask???
Eric:  OR
Eric:  we could tell them that we accidentally the shower head and we need help NAO
Sharmin:  hahahahahahaha
Go read the "I accidentatly __, the whole thing" links if you're not familiar with the meme. :) Also, you can buy the shower heads!

This is pretty much the greatest headline ever.
Chinese health officials said that the convulsions, breathing difficulty and paralysis that affected more than a 1,000 workers near a plant were mass hysteria.

This was brought on by the terrible quality of the piano app on Microsoft Surface, and how much Firestone would prefer to write a new one rather than doing whatever silly things he is doing for Microsoft right now:
Firestone: you had some piano experience once right?
Firestone: good for education of young children
Sharmin: ages ago, when i was small. i gave up quickly...preferred reading, never practiced
Firestone: haha shame. it used to be in the 19th century that if a lady was to get anywhere in society, she needed to have reasonable piano skills
Sharmin: yes. these days, fellatio is an acceptable alternative
Firestone: i feel like these should not be mutually exclusive. both should be requirements
Sharmin: hahaha
Firestone: though for whatever reason, even if the woman got really good she was rarely allowed to perform in public. it was supposed to be a service for her husband
OH ALSO, back in Cambridge tomorrow!

My brother and I were sitting in our hotel room in Hong Kong, while my mother was attempting to cut her toenails next door. Sadly, she broke the nail cutter. The following conversation ensued:

Sharmin: examining hands Oh nails! You are so short; I wish you'd stay this small forever.
Fahad: Yeah, my nails are pretty short too.
Sharmin: You know, I used to always be confused when parents said that about their children. But now I know what they mean.
Fahad: They want their children to stay small or they'll have to cut them!

A topless coffee shop in a tiny town in Maine burns down. Police say it was arson. The owner is sad, not possessing insurance, and now homeless.

Four questions:
1. Why would somebody burn down an establishment that provides caffeine, sugar, manly chests AND breasts at the same time?
2. Why does a town of 4,500 need a topless coffee shop?
3. Why would somebody who owned a wooden building in which baking surely happened not insure it?
4. What is the markup on coffee for tits?

I think it says a lot about Adam that this is his favorite music video (Watch it! It is is so silly and happy!). And also, the shark is currently his favorite rapper.

I ♥ my dorktastic boyfriend.
