Last night I dreamed I met one of the Harlem Globetrotters.
was scobby doo and the gang there with you? - Sir Shuping is just sir
On Amazing Race? :P - imabonehead from Android

Just one of the players. - LB: Ratchet Bear from Android

Yes. - Jenny H. from Android

I got so much avoidance behavior around this right now, it's not even funny. Blerg. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat from Android

i don't even want to know why a corn dog recipe came up in this search for halibut. >.>
Well damn. Now I want a corn dog. - Derrick
it is my preferred method of eating hotdogs. - holly #ravingfangirl
Well, you know, this wine isn't getting any fresher.
take care of business, z. - holly #ravingfangirl

someday i will have a KitchenAid of my very own... - holly #ravingfangirl
I seriously don't know how I lived without it. I use it for everything now. I don't know why, but I am still surprised when I discover I can use it to do something new. - Mary Carmen
i'm still mad that my mom had one and gave it to someone else when she downsized. KitchenAid has a bonus right now to get the ice cream maker attachment for free too. my main issue? I don't know where i'd keep it. - holly #ravingfangirl
holly - that's the only reason I don't have one, too. They take up a lot of space. Having said that, I'm annoyed that my parents gave their old one to my brother since he doesn't cook or bake much. - Katy S
I sucked it up and dedicated counter space to it. I found I was using it way too much to keep taking it down from the top of the fridge. - Mary Carmen
i keep the one i have now on the top shelf of my pantry. ain't no way this would even fit. I think the only real place i could make space for it is away from where i do most of the cooking. i suppose it could work though. DAMN YOU, WOOT. this is such a good deal. - holly #ravingfangirl
When I moved from LA to NOLA, mine sat in the car in the front seat. O_o - Derrick
I bought mine with my first paycheck about 20 years ago. It still works great. Although I really want that red one. - Trish R from iPhone
haha, school loans -------> - Derrick
*whimper* - Betsy
oh damn. Costco's coupons starting 4/10 have what looks like a comparable model for $60 off which could put it under $300. but it's a Costco-only version. hrm. - holly #ravingfangirl
no free ice cream maker though, cuz costco's coupon for it expired at the end of March. SUCH INDECISION. - holly #ravingfangirl
I'd love to have the ice cream maker. And the pasta attachment. - Trish R from iPhone
oh wait, the other coupon includes the costco model. though some reviews are saying there are issues finding attachments/accessories that fit it. GAH. i am going to go run and see how i feel about it then. maybe it will be sold out and i won't have to make a decision. lol - holly #ravingfangirl
OH GOOD GRIEF. i am still trying to decide. i'm gonna be sitting here with my finger on the trigger until 9:58 or until woot sells out. i think i have determined that what's different about this one is worth the $30 more than Costco's version. - holly #ravingfangirl
Girl, if you don't order that damn mixer... - Derrick
Those tall ones won't fit under my cabinets. I'm jealous of y'all who have have enough space for them. - Katy S
I wish I could use mine more often, but I don't have the counter-space to keep it out all the time, and it's so damned heavy that I never feel like dragging it out of the cupboard. I end up using a whisk or a small hand-mixer for 99% of my mixing needs. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
DO EEEEEEEET! - LB: Ratchet Bear from Android
The free ice cream maker is totally worth it! - Galadriel C. from Android
IT IS DONE. we'll see if i get the ice cream maker. :) - holly #ravingfangirl
I admit I'm always surprised to find out that someone *doesn't* have a KitchenAid. I grew up with one and when I started planning for my first apartment, it was the very first thing I bought. And every time I've moved, it's ridden shotgun (with a seatbelt, natch). I finally replaced my original with a 7 quart professional model a couple years ago. Still the star of the kitchen. :) - Hookuh Tinypants
I sometimes regret not having one. I grew up with one, too, and they're wonderful. For a very long time it was a space issue (I had a horrible tiny galley kitchen). Now I'm afraid I'd bake more than I already do. ;) - Katy S
I grew up with one but have never felt the need for my own, oddly. - laura x from iPhone
My mil has a 50yo one that works great. She gave me mine for a shower gift. Subsequent gifts included both pasta attachments and the meat grinder. :) I have a separate cuisinart ice cream maker with spare bowl - Christina Pikas from iPhone
KitchenAid, y'all. Dude.
*cranks up some Wu-Tang and pushes up sleeves* - Derrick

It's gonna be uh-may-zing. - holly #ravingfangirl from iPhone
I am saying all this, Derrick, but did we bust that puppy out at all when you lived here? May need to rectify this... - Zamms
Just a couple times! My recipe file is chockfull of options and opportunity, my friend. - Derrick
I never used it as much as I planned but I definitely miss mine. - Akiva
I hope this turns out well...
it looks nearly amazing! - holly #ravingfangirl
It banged. I let the exterior get crispy, with a side of sour cream? Girl, bye. BYE. - Derrick
WANT. - LB: Ratchet Bear from Android
I want this even with that dreadful stuff on it. - holly #ravingfangirl from iPhone
I could hook you up with one WITHOUT it. - Derrick
holly #ravingfangirl
craaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaap, can't leave to eat until this damn Fedex driver arrives.
maybe you can go out and find him? - Sir Shuping is just sir
Who wants to go out and find a delivery driver!!?!??! - Derrick
right? and it's the KitchenAid. this is a critical delivery! - holly #ravingfangirl
KITCHENAID!!!!!! - Zamms
i can't decide what i will break it in withhhhhhhhh - holly #ravingfangirl
New mixer? Or something else? - LB: Ratchet Bear from Android
We're using ours right now to make a Nutella chocolate pudding pound cake. - Zamms
Oh damn! - Derrick
<record scratch> - Derrick
now you understand the gravity of the situation. - holly #ravingfangirl
Indeed! - LB: Ratchet Bear from Android
BUT COME ON, FEDEX MAN, HOLLY IS HONGRAY. - holly #ravingfangirl
well that's why you should go look for him! that way ya can get food and get started with the baking! - Sir Shuping is just sir
Will it be a red one? - LB: Ratchet Bear from Android
black, actually. :) - holly #ravingfangirl
LB wins hashtag wars - Zamms

For the record, I have no idea who this person is. - Derrick
Farmer’s Mkt haul: bananas, papaya, yogurt, tortillas, cheese, apples, broccolini, bread, ice cream, some dude’s number. #hiyoooo
Hopefully you didn't have to pay for that last item. :) - (Curtis/Alan) Jackson

I love the farmer's market! esp. that last item. :-) - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an

$25 for a pint at a liquor store?!? Now, I know Eagle Rock has been gentrified, but I guess I've been living in denial about it being Downtown Hipsterville.
A pint of what? - Spidra Webster
Beer. Granted, it's craft beer, but still. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
That's like double the cost of a beer at a ball game. - Rodfather from Android
That's freakin' insane. Imported lambic is $10-13 for 750mL and I still don't buy it often because I guzzle lambic but sip wine. - Spidra Webster
I refuse to believe my stomping ground of Eagle Rock has turned into what Silverlake and Echo Park were at the time of my departure. - Derrick

How Privileged Are You? - Buzzfeed - Oh, Buzzfeed *shakes head sadly*
OK, to be fair, it did make me think about just how fluid sexuality is—like it's not just cis/trans or heterosexual/LGBT. You don't need to actual identify with a certain orientation to be called slurs. You can be shamed for sexual practices (or lack of sexual practices) that don't necessarily conform/are limited to categorical orientations. - Victor Ganata
I got 40, mostly based on gender or sexuality. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Buzzfeed says I'm not privileged at all, which I find pretty ridiculous. Of course I'm privileged. - Laura
I'm "quite privileged" apparently. Whatever that means. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
LOL at trying to throw shade at Buzzfeed. It's *Buzzfeed*. - Derrick
It says I am not privileged, but white male here. - Friar Will
Yeah, I know it's Buzzfeed but I still totally thought "Surely you can't be serious" when I saw someone had posted this on FB :D - Victor Ganata from iPhone
I hear what you're saying, Derrick, but I've heard Bullfeed mentioned as a Source of Serious Modern Journalism (along with HuffPuff), which makes me cringe. That test: ditto. (My score is, of course, in the vast "privileged" range, since that clearly starts somewhere at or below 50 out of 100--that is, I scored 50. Yes, I consider myself reasonably privileged.) - Walt Crawford
I wonder if they weigh all those questions equally. I think some forms of privilege are probably more significant than others. - John (bird whisperer)
I think the idea of quantifying privilege is prima facie ridiculous, but I guess we live in the age of the quantified self. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
I found myself not sure of some of my answers. Sometimes I've felt uncomfortable about who I am, but I think that was me facing my privilege rather than not having it. My freshman year of college almost all my friends were Asian, so I was "the white girl" and left out of things, but I wouldn't say that was lack of privilege at all. - Heather, 30k Camper
I didn't bother because, well, I'm aware of whatever privilege I might have, but am also painfully aware of what that might look like when I'm in the elevator or people who look different from me pass up that open seat on the bus because...well, I'm sure it's not privilege. And also, I just really hate Buzzfeed. - Derrick
I'm increasingly with you (Derrick) on that last count, which is why I ignored this the first five times I saw it. - Walt Crawford
Turnt up.
I found this hard cider that's aged in bourbon casks? -hic- - Derrick
That maple-y, smoky, lingering taste is sublime. - Derrick
Oh you are speaking my language right there. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
It's also like 7% abv too. #howyoudoin'? - Derrick
Oh. Which one? - Christina Pikas from iPhone
It's one of the Woodchuck varieties. A limited or reserve edition? - Derrick

"On a recent cloudless afternoon, a group of young comedy writers — one in Ray-Bans and a floppy wizard hat, another in skateboard sneakers and funky jeans — descended upon San Diego State University’s palm-tree-dotted campus, brandishing copies of their latest creation: a 12-page broadsheet of lewd humor. It was distribution day, or Distro, and staff members of The Koala, California’s most reviled student publication, had 8,000 copies to hand out. “Come and get it, you know you want it,” thundered Erik Luchsinger, a 21-year-old management major, in Hawaiian swim trunks, tank top and bow tie. “All the cool kids are reading it!” bellowed Taylor Etchart, a senior foods and nutrition major. “Guaranteed to be funnier than your textbook!” another staff writer shouted as students whizzed by on skateboards and bicycles. The cover featured an orgy of naked women with koala heads, clutching beer bottles, injecting illicit substances and vomiting. Inside was a list of “Top 5 Ways to Pick Up a... more... - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"Despite all this, The Koala seems to be flourishing. It has recouped its lost advertising dollars, and revenues are up by more than 100 percent from fall 2012 (the editorial staff is not paid). For the first time, staff members are trying to sell subscriptions to graduating seniors, to foster an alumni base, and there is a beefed-up online presence. Koala coffee cups, stickers and... more... - Jessie
"TO BETTER UNDERSTAND what’s so funny about The Koala, I joined the staff at one of its Sunday night meetings, in a cluttered one-bedroom apartment on the edge of the San Diego State campus. Sitting on a shag rug beneath a framed poster of the “Seinfeld” character Kramer, and between bites of guava cookies supplied by Mr. Luchsinger’s mother, students reviewed their last issue, which... more... - Jessie
"The Koala is not the only publication to mine edgy terrain. A subgroup of campus publications — The Quinnipiac Barnacle, The Medium at Rutgers and The Texas Travesty at the University of Texas, Austin — delight in routinely touching humor’s third rail. Take The Medium. Last year, it was criticized for likening a sorority with dwindling membership to a gaggle of farm animals. The motto:... more... - Jessie

Fasting blood sugar situation for my doctor's appointment this morning, but I should be done around 11am AND will be at Farragut. Any recommendations for food trucks, my friend?

Frozen Merch Is Sold Out Everywhere and Parents Are Losing Their Shit -
Frozen Merch Is Sold Out Everywhere and Parents Are Losing Their Shit
"It has become impossible to get any official merchandise from Disney's animated megahit Frozen—toys and clothing are sold out everywhere, even after a recent, large-scale restocking effort. Enterprising individuals are charging up to $1,000 for Frozen items on eBay, which has driven parents completely insane. Frustrated moms are currently freaking out all over Disney's Facebook page, posting angry messages in the middle of the night." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"Currently, Disney has a rule set that no more than two of each Frozen item can be purchased at a time, in an effort to cut down on the scalping that is currently happening online. But the purchasing cap doesn't really help when there aren't any items to buy in stores, which leaves eBay and independent Amazon sellers left as the only options if you absolutely must get your hands on some... more... - Jessie
"Your best chance at getting some Frozen merch at its original retail price is at various stores at the actual Disney World Resort. But even that's dicey. It's mostly T-shirts and they don't seem to have the singing Elsa with the light-up hands that everyone is going bonkers for. Going to Disney World for a Frozen experience actually presents its own set of problems. Currently, the wait... more... - Jessie
Huh. I didn't think it was THAT good. Same w/the Let It Go song. When I finally heard it while watching the movie it didn't stand out to me as something that hype-worthy. - ronin
There's been so much EVERYTHING about Frozen, that all I can do is just kind of reject it until the hype dies down. No way it could live up to the expectation on the merit of it's high visibility right now. - Derrick
Dominic and I went to see it and we both thought it was cute, but that's about it. I liked it but I really don't understand the craziness over this movie. - Jessie
Yeah, I don't...I just...don't get it. I don't. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't anything more than decent either. And I sure as shit wouldn't scream at Disney about being unable to buy merchandise. Sometimes it's healthy for a kid to want something and *not* get it. - Hookuh Tinypants
Also, I'm a little o.O at people who give their kids stuff like this as "Easter gifts". Is this a thing? Is Easter like a second Christmas now? I'm seriously confused. I think we got colored eggs and candy and little plastic tchotchkes. And we were more than happy with that. - Jessie
Easter was always Christmas Part II at my house. ;) - Soup in a TARDIS

Given how many people put unlicensed Disney stuff up on DeviantArt and Etsy, I'd think the more adventurous ones would be trying to make $$ by filling the void right now. - Spidra Webster
They probably are, if they can manage to avoid the Disney copyright police. - Jessie
Admittedly I've never been much into "Official" merch, so this is far beyond my scope of understanding. But I really liked Frozen and I think it's different in a good way from what usually comes out of Disney. I can see how children would be drawn to the somewhat non-traditional main characters and parents would want to encourage that. - Heather, 30k Camper

I grew up in the 60's when television shows produced 39 new episodes per season, and some of them a second time during the "summer rerun" period. So I'm having some issues with turning on the t.v. in MARCH AND APRIL only to discover that they're running reruns until late April!
Someday soon we'll be treated to 6 weeks of new programming, followed by 39 weeks of reruns and reality shows. The remaining 7 weeks will be comprised of holiday specials, sports extravaganzas, and country music award specials. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
I grew up in the 80s when TV shows were 24 - 30 new episodes and a 30 min. show had 24 min. of content. That mid-season gap and added commercials are why I don't watch American TV while it's on the air. - Anika
I am with you Anika. We only DVR and we call it power watching. - Janet
I remember when there were only ABC, CBS, and NBC. There are so many networks now, so many ways "TV" gets distributed, ie Netflix and Amazon Prime doing their own original content now as well. So much so that I get overwhelmed with all the available viewing options so that I just turn the TV off and listen to music instead. - Derrick
I'm doing that more and more, Derrick. There are two shows that I make a point of watching when I can get them. One of them is on PBS and, unfortunately, that signal has disappeared completely in the last couple of months. Either the transmitter is borked, or some new enterprise between here and the transmitter 30 miles away is generating enough interference to wipe out the signal. I... more... - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
I don't even watch broadcast TV, really. I have no idea what times and days shows even air because I always catch it later through network websites, Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime and the like. And again, I'm really enjoying listening to music lately but will marathon a TV show should I have the time on weekends. - Derrick
