Dear FF, I kicked off my birthday weekend with sautéed Swiss chard, sweet potato fries with aioli, and a motherfucking local grassfed NY strip steak.
And wine. - laura x from iPhone
I'd eat that. - SAM
Everything is right with this. - Julian
damn girl, you do birthdays right. - Marie

Happy birthday!! Wonderful celebratory food choices :D - Katie
We're going to need more birthday weekend food updates. For science. - Corinne L
This morning a friend took us out for apple cider doughnuts at the market. Lunch was the tail end of the steak with carmelized onions and a green salad with creamy garlic dressing. Dinner is going to be broccoli and pasta with walnut sauce. - laura x
#toddlerx had french fries for lunch with my mom and is now apparently having french fries for dinner with his dad. - laura x

Deciding to work with a personal trainer has been a very good decision for me, so far. It's costly, but I'm making my health my top priority, and I can already feel the work we're doing fitting together like a jigsaw puzzle.
Basically, I took the pay bump that came with my new job and put it towards working with a personal trainer. It's not permanent, but it may be long-term. Either way, I'm getting a sound return on my investment :) - Brent Schaus
That's great! - Soup in a TARDIS

How Scientists Are Learning to Write - The Atlantic
"The students tried not to look sheepish as their professor projected the article on the whiteboard, waiting for their work to be devoured by their classmates. It was the second class for the nine students, all of whom are Ph.D. candidates or post-doctoral fellows. Their assignment had been to distill their extensive research down to just three paragraphs so that the average person could understand it, and, as in any class, some showed more aptitude than others. The piece on the board was by one of the students, a Russian-born biologist. The professor, the journalist and author Stephen Hall (with whom I took a different writing workshop last year), pointed to the word "sequencing." "That's jargon-ish," he said, circling it on the board. "Even some people in the sciences don't have an intuitive understanding of what that means." He turned to another student in the class, an Italian native working on his doctorate in economics, for confirmation. "Yes, I didn't know what was going on," he said, turning to the piece's author. The biology student wrote something in her notebook." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"Even though most of their efforts may seem to be concentrated in the lab, scientists spend a lot of time writing. "Scientists need to know how to write to get their work published and get grants—it's an important skill that people assume they already have [once they reach a certain level], so no one ever teaches them how to write well in these specific formats," said Kristin Sainani, a... more... - Jessie
"Brad Henderson teaches writing to undergraduate science majors at UC, Berkeley, and doesn't share Rodger's relaxed attitude about the actual science the students cover. "It drives me crazy when I'm talking with other writing teachers and say they don't worry about what the student is technically talking about, just looking at the shape and form [of their writing]," he said "That's a real disservice. If you're going to write about science, you have to roll up your shirtsleeves and learn about science."" - Jessie
Eh, I think the key point for early-career scientists is "Know your audience." Explaining sequencing may be a good idea if you're writing a newspaper article, but I don't think it works for journal articles because your audience will most likely already know what it means. Same for grants, depending on the sponsor and the makeup of the grant review committee. - Jessie
"If you're going to write about science, you have to roll up your shirtsleeves and learn about science." ---> I definitely agree with this, however. There isn't one ideal form of "good writing" that crosses all disciplines. If you are not able to interpret the content in science articles, you should not be teaching science writing. ETA: I don't mean to imply that teaching science... more... - Jessie

RT @earthpicturz: A rare image of a flying peacock http://t.co/MDChuJQZx3
Are peacocks flying that rare? Once, at the zoo, I noticed something moving. I grabbed my kid, ducked & yelled out, "Dragon!" all on pure instinct. Everyone looked at me & laughed. It was a peacock. - Anika
I have never seen a picture of nor a real peacock flying. Huh. - bentley
Come to SoCal. We have a few places with wild peacocks. You can get your fill then. From what I see here, they're more like chickens; just short flights to go up on rooftops/rafters. - Anika
I thought they usually cut a part of the wing on a chicken to prevent flight? or maybe some feathers? I've never seen a peacock flying either, but I've only ever seen them strutting around at random on farms. No where to be, really. - Christina Pikas
LOL @ Anika's first comment! - The First NoeLB from Android
I saw this very nice pic of a peacock flying on Tumblr just a few days ago: http://therealbluerayne.tumblr.com/post... Hadn't ever seen one before. - Kirsten

Isn't it #ThrowOutThursday or something? I ditched or donated a bunch of toys (some were broken). Getting tired of the toy clutter. :-/
Good job! Man, she's only near 6 months old and I totally feel you on the toy clutter. I got rid of an old TV today, - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
It's compounded here by having 2 different age kids. Argh! So much stuff! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!

When does the parenting thing from move from thoroughly exhausting into any other phase? When they leave for college?
Not sure. I have one in his second year of college and it hasn't gotten any less exhausting yet. It's a different kind of exhausting, but exhausting nonetheless. - WebGoddess
Death? - Soup in a TARDIS
Why do people have these things again then? - Steve C Team Marina
So they'll have someone to empty the dishwasher? (This is what my dad always claimed :P ) - Soup in a TARDIS
When you are pushing up daises - Valz 4 TEAMMARINA
All joking aside, I think every month gets slightly less exhausting (sleep regressions & teething excluded). YMMV - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
9 months was pretty awesome until we stopped sleeping because teething. - Jenica from iPhone
14 is ok. But we only have one. I had to ask him to clean out the dishwasher. Again. - Joe
Dang Jenica you got to 9 months pre teething, We hit that at 5 months and sleep now down to 1.5 hours at a time. His first two teeth are in looks like two more locked and loaded for arrival. - Steve C Team Marina
After 3 years old I think. They can express themselves fairly well then and they want to help out (at least until the teen years). I'm still tired a lot: driving, homework, drama, etc. But it's a good tired. I like being a dad. Edit: As to "why"? *shrug* The best explanation I ever heard was, "It's in the blood." Biological/evolutionary imperative I guess. - MoTO: #TeamMarina
There's a period of time in the early teen years where all they do is sleep. That's a nice phase. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
I found I had a lot more free time when they learned to drive. - Ken Morley
^^This. Too bad I spent it worrying about all the other idiots in cars out there, just driving around until they crossed paths with my kid. Fortunately, this never actually happened and he's yet to get in a wreck. **knock on wood** - WebGoddess
^^ I was more worried about the other drivers. ;) - Ken Morley
We were doing so well until teething started a week ago. Now we're in the phase where she doesn't sleep for more than an hour at a time and that's pretty hellacious. - Brian Johns
There is a bubble between ~12 and the midpoint of high school (US version). They start to get more human after that as the various parts of their brains finish wiring up. observation: Helicopter parenting extends the bubble significantly.Facing and overcoming responsibilities on their own (with overt support and maybe a bit of help from behind the curtain) in high school will significantly ease things. - David Lounsbury
The 14 yo i mentioned starts driving lessons this spring. I certainly hope his attention span changes once he starts driving. - Joe

Ben Edelman, Harvard Business School Professor, Goes to War Over $4 Worth of Chinese Food
"Ben Edelman is an associate professor at Harvard Business School, where he teaches in the Negotiation, Organizations & Markets unit. Ran Duan manages The Baldwin Bar, located inside the Woburn location of Sichuan Garden, a Chinese restaurant founded by his parents Last week, Edelman ordered what he thought was $53.35 worth of Chinese food from Sichuan Garden’s Brookline Village location. Edelman soon came to the horrifying realization that he had been overcharged. By a total of $4. If you’ve ever wondered what happens when a Harvard Business School professor thinks a family-run Chinese restaurant screwed him out of $4, you’re about to find out." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
Sheesh. - bentley
Sounds like he skipped the first lesson in economics - opportunity cost. - Jessie
Sounds like Ben is a douche canoe with entitlement issues. - Big Joe Silence from Android
I think we need lots more professors enforcing EVERY LAW ON THE BOOKS no matter how trivial the violation and how much hassle they cause. Because. Unless, of course, Edelman's an asshat. - Walt Crawford
He's apologised following re-reading his emails once they became viral. Claims he will also be apologizing in person - Soup in a TARDIS
Also apparently not the first time he's done this: http://www.boston.com/food-di... - rönin
As jerky as he was, I feel like the restaurant owner was kinda trolling him back when he said something like "If you've alerted the authorities, I'd better wait to see what they say I should do." - Andrew C (✔)
Seems like Harvard is becoming school of a**holism!! - Sepi ⌘ سپی from iPhone
#whywecanthavenicethings Don't worry in is spare time he advised Amazon not to let their employees clock in until AFTER security #OKaythatsprobablynottrue but only because they didn't ask him.... - WarLord
Andrew: I see the owner's point--after Edelman's increasing "it's not just my $4, YOU'RE IN BIG TROUBLE HERE!" stream, his only sensible approach was to hold off. Well, and get the old website menu taken down. - Walt Crawford

Goodreads | 100 Best Books of All Time: The World Library List (100 books)
"List of 100 best books of all time, as voted on by 100 writers in 54 different countries. List reflects works from multiple countries, cultures and time periods. Compiled in 2002 by Norwegian Book Clubs." - Eivind from Bookmarklet
Your 2015 reading goal? :) - Ken Morley
I'll certainly knock down a few more. I've already read about half of them, but there are books on there I have no desire to read :) - Eivind from Android
Eivind, what are some of the ones you'd skip? - Anne Bouey
The plays, mostly. I'd like to know them all, but at present I really don't feel like reading them :) - Eivind
I disagree with this list. - Heisenberg
I haven't read all the books there are yet, so I'm not in a position to judge. - Eivind
Proust should be No:1 - ccc- Proust - ccc - Arfin Kiriloğlu
The original list isn't ordered, Arfin. - Eivind
Eivind, last week i played chess on chess.com with a guy called Eivind from Norway, i hope it wasn't you - i had a cruel win ^^ Your name is common in Norway? - Arfin Kiriloğlu
According to SSB (http://www.ssb.no/en/navn/) there are "8 381 men with Eivind as part of their forename" and "6 817 men with Eivind as their only forename." So, fairly common :) - Eivind
I've read a fair bit of them, some of which I gave up on. I haven't looked up the criteria by which these were chosen, if one was given, but my list would look at least 75% different. I realize as an American, I am biased towards American literature, but many of these books just aren't that good. Both Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez novels are there, yet no John Steinbeck or F. Scott... more... - Heisenberg
Without going into what I would bump, which is quite a lot, I would start by adding these: The Sun Also Rises, Grapes of Wrath, Cannery Row, The Great Gatsby, A Tale of Two Cities, To Kill a Mockingbird, and On the Road. That's really only the beginning though. I'd massacre this list. - Heisenberg
Those are some fine books and A Tale of Two Cities you have there. I actually asked Jenny why they didn't select a better Hemingway book. And I'm a huge Steinbeck fan. The list was curated from 100 authors' top 10 lists. The author pool represented 54 countries, and 26 of them represented the Anglosphere. - Eivind
When I said criteria, I meant what aspects of these books and authors were deemed important in rating them, e.g. readability, historical significance, message, cultural importance, plot, character development. Of the books on their list, my favorite would be Crime and Punishment. - Heisenberg
The selection is called the World Library, so I assume they were just asked which ten books they felt should absolutely be part of such a thing. - Eivind from Android
The reason I came across this list in the first place, is that I bought the Norwegian translation of the book called Independent People in English. I'm still reading it, but that is a quality work with a proper saga feel to the writing. So, read Independent People by Haldor Laxness, everyone :) - Eivind

Went for a quick walk with my neighbor and his dog. We haven't had a chance to hang out since early October. He asked, "Have you lost weight? I see it in your face." I gave him a big hug because no one has said that to me in AGES. (And yes, I have, a little bit. :-) )

Taiwan ‘liuli’ glass art to star in Hollywood movies - Taipei Times - http://www.taipeitimes.com/News...
"Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels take the spotlight in this year’s long-awaited sequel to Dumb and Dumber, but what viewers might not be aware of in the comedy film is the presence of glass art from Taiwan’s premier, liuli, or crystal glass, workshop. Two pieces from the Taipei City-based Liuligongfang glass studio appear as decorative art in Dumb and Dumber To, which premiered in the US last month and hits Taiwanese cinemas tomorrow. Out of more than 1,000 pieces, filmmakers chose In Praise of the Tulip, a Vase of Riches (四方禮讚聚寶瓶), which depicts lavender wisps rising out from an earthen container, and Sunny Day (艷陽天), which depicts a purple glass flower growing from a large translucent loop. The scenes in which they appear have caused a minor media sensation in Taiwan, despite only being on screen for a short time and not playing a central role in the story." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
