Funny story (don't tell him I told you) - I was talking to Josh about this and he said he didn't know any of your songs (he's a young 'un). I said he'd probably now Right Here Right Now. He started singing it then said "Isn't that a Bryan Adams song?" - Melly - #TeamMarina

There aren't that many straight lit novels I'm interested in buying but I may well get this. The author was interviewed on KPCC today. The story is set in Fallbrook, CA. There's a lot of subtropical/tropical fruit growing there in North San Diego County. The protagonist's family farms avocados. That's kinda weird enough that I'm intrigued. :)
It's called "Full Measure" by T. Jefferson Parker http://www.amazon.com/gp... - Spidra Webster
The KPCC interview is here: http://www.scpr.org/program... - Spidra Webster
That's where my family lives; I'll have to read it, too. - joey
why did i read that as "sociopathic tropical fruit growing"? - Big Joe Silence
Durian is probably a sociopathic tropical fruit. - Spidra Webster

Dear FriendFeed: Thank you for being you. Thank you for showing the world that even if it's just in our tiny little corner of this social network on the big, bad Internet, there are people who genuinely care and want to help those in need. It's nice to know that I am associated with a group of people who form like Voltron into a gigantic heart. <3
Must be dusty in here, something in my eye *sniff* - Meg VMeg
+1 for Voltron reference. I had one of this toys. We couldn't afford Transformers. :) - Steve C Team Marina

Finally! Our mortgage broker says we're good to get a car! Hopefully by this weekend we'll be styling with cup holders, power windows, and an uncracked windshield. Lol!
Great news! - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Have you decided on what kind of van you guys want? - Tamara J. B.
I'm almost certain we're going to get an Odyssey, but the Toyota Sienna has the light blue color we want. Argh! - Yvonne Renee
Art's Automotive in Berkeley, which specializes in Japanese cars, recommended the Odyssey over the Sienna back 8 or so years ago when I thought I might be looking. Although the Sienna is still supposed to be a quality vehicle. However, I think you'll care more about the innards than the car color when you're at the mechanics. - Spidra Webster
So true. =) When we decided not to get the transmission fixed on the Chevy Venture, I asked the mechanic which of the 2 he saw more often. He actually told me he sees more Odysseys with tranny problems than Siennas, but really how many can there be? - Yvonne Renee
FWIW, our 2006 Sienna has been golden. - Big Joe Silence
It's funny/hard because everyone that has an Odyssey loves it. Everyone that has a Sienna loves it. =) - Yvonne Renee
That's why I asked the Japanese auto specialists. They deal with tons of both of them. However, I was asking them some time ago and the picture may have changed since then. I'm sure things depend on model years. - Spidra Webster
Yvonne Renee
I'm freaking out about being a 1-car family right now. The minivan finally gave out. We can't buy another until our mortgage refinance goes through. Until then, all of the commitments for carpooling to school and driving for field trips are cancelled. =(
*hugs* I can totally understand your frustration. Any eta on when the refi will be done? - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
That's the other thing... I can't get an answer from our mortgage broker. Waaaaaaa! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
What about a cheap rental for a week or two? - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
What about stealing one you can look up how to hot wire most vehicles online. Or so I've heard. - Steve C Team Marina
Lol! I think the rental is the way to go. =) - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Over here, a lot of people I know use car-hire sites like Zipcar - is that sort of thing an option? - Iain Baker
I could check into using ZipCar, but I have carseats to deal with so I'm not sure how convenient that would be. I can rent a full-size car for about $180/week. That should get us over the hump, but it's not as ideal as having a minivan. - Yvonne Renee
Zipcar has minivans and full size vans, depending on location. If you only need the car for errands, Zipcar is the better deal. But if you have to have it all day long, regular car rental is better. - Spidra Webster

Drunk Florida Man Tries to Use Taco as ID After His Car Catches Fire at Taco Bell | Miami New Times - http://blogs.miaminewtimes.com/riptide...
"The incident occurred in the early morning of October 1 in Jensen Beach, according to the blog Off the Beat. Falkner, 30, had apparently decided to make a run for a fourth meal after downing some beers, and he somehow made it all the way to the fast-food joint in his Chevy pickup, placed his order, and received his taco before falling asleep. The Taco Bell manager had to call police because Falkner was out cold at the pick-up window and holding up customers behind him. Clearly this was not a victimless crime, and our hearts go out to the hungry folks who had to wait so long for their late-night munchies. A deputy awoke Falkner and then asked for his ID. Falkner said no before reaching into his bag and presenting the officer with a taco. Another deputy clarified they were asking for an ID, not a taco. Falkner chuckled and began eating the taco. Then deputies noticed Falkner had fallen asleep with his foot on the accelerator while his truck was in park. The engine had caught fire, and fire extinguishers were used to put it out." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"The reason I look different is I shaved off my cheese." - Stephen Mack
Your honor, my client was not "driving" under the influence - he was merely sleeping in a parked truck while drunk. If he didn't move when asked you might charge him with trespassing but to assume anything worse would be predatory. - Brian Johns
Florida! - Amit Patel

Don't I know it. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
A psychoanalyst might wonder if someone important in your life hadn't ever said that you can't love someone if they can't love themself and you'd then taken it to extremes but a more likely answer might be that narcissists tend to look nice and people generally like people who look nice. Both very human responses. - Mark H

Wait, are those RAIN clouds?
It's supposed to rain here in Los Angeles tomorrow. We'll see. - Steve C Team Marina
nope, they are candy clouds! candy corn clouds! - Sir Shuping is just sir
We've been getting 90% chance of rain on Friday throughout the week's forecasts (except one day when it went to 100%). So those clouds around here ( a few hundred miles north of LA) sure better be rain clouds--ideally carrying a lot of snow for the Sierras. - Walt Crawford
No rain in the forecast here - just a few clouds, with wind. Probably only gusting when I'm trying to serve. - Mary B: #TeamMonique
It's quite humid here in Sac. Heavy rains predicted for tomorrow & Saturday. I say BRING IT ON. - Corinne L

#ThrowOutThursday! Today we're donating our oldest sofa bed, and 2 chairs to SVDP. I'm hoping they'll also take some boxes of diapers and wipes we don't need, but if not I'll find another place to donate them.
Great job! - Stephen Mack
Our place has so much breathing room now! Ah! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
You're doing great! - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Salvation Army also took a box of diapers and my box of wipes. A friend was interested in purchasing 3 other boxes of pull-ups, but changed her mind AFTER the guys were here. So... I guess I'll be dropping them off at Goodwill. =) - Yvonne Renee
If there's a women & children's shelter nearby, they might appreciate the pull-ups. - Corinne L
I know of one in Menlo Park, but not here in Sunnyvale. I'm sure I can track one down though! - Yvonne Renee
Shelters are always in need of baby supplies, great idea. St Vincent de Paul in Oakland runs a homeless women & kids drop in center, I know they'll be putting those wipes to good use :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

Emulating the flagship of Marvel's costume, the Spiderman Costume Union Suit has a drawstring hoodie, a zipper up the center, and almost functions as a professional wrestling outfit should you get caught in a cage match with the Macho Man.
