Today was my first day with new immune suppressant: "Stelera" an injectable med. SOOOOO... Off to Gastro Doc to be trained in self administering that is, injecting myself. I gave myself first dose under watchful eye of Nurse Practitioner. You know what oddest part of self injection is? I mean besides holding needle thing poised over your belly......
You know what oddest part of self injection is? I mean besides holding needle thing poised over your belly... The oddest thing is how hard you have to push to actually penetrate the skin. OTOH it's barely possible I'm worlds biggest baby... - WarLord

RT @JamesFallows: Scottish turnout super high in part because *every vote counts equally*. Reason #625 to dump Electoral College in US.
Mebbe, but I doubt if our turnout would go up appreciably if we dumped the Electoral College for most elections. Apathy is apathy. If we had a vote in California about seceding from the U.S., I bet California's turnout would be record-breaking too. - Stephen Mack
Quite. Here in the UK, we've been voicing our disgust with the whole system by staying away from the polling booths and saying "We choose not to vote because you're ALL equally shit for different reasons". The parties have all ignored us. Only now that a couple of million Scots turned out and voted to keep things exactly as they are have the parties responded with "We get it, England wants change." I want some of whatever drugs our politicians are on. - Slippy
Of course, some of that apathy is deliberately encouraged. It's not like we deliberately set aside time as a society to do this, or expect that work or commerce should briefly halt to see it accomplished. Polling places are often extraordinarily inconvenient for large parts of the population, portions of which are at massive disadvantage when attempting to even register to vote. - Jennifer Dittrich
Jennifer, it's a good point. I'd love to see us implement a national voting day holiday (which other countries have had for years). - Stephen Mack
Certain segments of the political spectrum encourage apathy with such statements as "they're all the same" etc and by making voting a more arduous task then it needs to be.... Make Sunday polling day and tell them that football doesn't start tell the votes are tally'ed.... - WarLord
I'd love to see a voting holiday (a real holiday, as in only emergency personnel have to work, and people get paid leave) as well as a lot more polling places (with special emphasis on currently underserved areas, like reservations and very poor neighborhoods.) - Jennifer Dittrich
I support Stephens call for a national drinking^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H voting holiday! (which is apparently how some folks in countries with such holidays respond... :/ ) - Ken Gidley
A holiday is interpreted as a "travel and get away" day. So that would conflict with voting. - Louis Gray
We vote on a Saturday. Works for us. - Johnny from iPhone
You vote on a Saturday? How do you get people to show up? They can't put a TV show on Saturdays. - Eric - Poppa Large from iPhone
Also, voting is done at almost every public school (close, easily accessible by public transport), there is pre-polling options like electoral officers taking voting stations to nursing homes and hospitals. - Johnny from iPhone
Eric. We have compulsory voting (which I wholeheartedly support) but they also have a sausage sizzle and jam stores so you do it on the way out or back from your weekend stuff and grab a snack. - Johnny from iPhone

How to Tell if You’re in a MFA Workshop Story - http://the-toast.net/2014...
How to Tell if You’re in a MFA Workshop Story
"You sit at the bar and have a drink. When you finish your drink you have another. You drink in a way that is simple and direct and not at all in imitation of Hemingway or Carver, and if it is then it’s an homage, a subtle, searingly thought-provoking homage, and the bartender is a charming old gent who calls you “hoss” and not a college girl with a swallow tattoo on her breastbone." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"Her laugh was like the jangle of a charm bracelet, or like the wind whispering in the branches of an aspen, or like waves crashing on the beach, or like something else that doesn’t really sound at all like laughter, or even any sound a human can make, to be honest." - Jessie
"There is an ethnic person nearby, but they are dispensing with excellent advice. Their voice is cracked and earthy, like the earth. If they were your father they would say they loved you, to your face and to your heart. “Chile,” they say, “sho nuff, this crazy world goes on a-spinnin’ and don’t nobody know where it gon’ stop.” You nod sagely. It is good to take the G Train." - Jessie
"The love of a good woman will save you. A good woman will place her cool hand upon your feverish brow and not like the bands you don’t like. A good woman will know she is a metaphor, and accept it." - Jessie
"And even through the buffer of this short story, female readers are probably becoming barren just by encountering the power of your thoughts, right at this minute, right now." - Victor Ganata
....and if it is then it’s an homage, a subtle, searingly thought-provoking homage.... - WarLord
Hahahahahaha the comments: "In my one graduate level writing course a woman wrote a non-fiction story about the time she got into a car accident (in the US) after visiting a bakery and how the bagels she had bought spilled onto the road and the professor chewed her out for a painfully long time about the careless and racist way she had invoked images of Palestinian terrorism, so. " - Jessie
Also: "The other day a friend read me a sentence from a writing workshop piece (not his) that said, hand to god: "She cupped her chin in her girlish fingers and stared at me with penstemon-sparked eyes." I had to look up penstemon; apparently it's a flower, alternately called beardtongue. Sexy. " - Jessie
I guess everything really is a metaphor :D #darmok - Victor Ganata

Saturn SL1 - Meg VMeg
A BMW me ex had was very reliable. Never had an issue at all. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Hyundai Elantra (2003) - Jennifer Dittrich
All three of my recent cars have been very reliable: Ford Focus, Scion TC, and now a Toyota Yaris. Nary a problem with any of them. - Friar Will
My old Checker cab - GRANDMAFORSCARLETT
Dodge colt that was essentially a Mitsubishi. - Joe from iPod
This 20 year old Voyager I'm driving now. But my favoritest car was my always-needing-maintenance 93 Cutlass SL. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Our Honda Civics. All of them, except for the transmission problem on the '95. (Now down to just one, our new 2005.) - Walt Crawford
Joe reminded me of the Colt that I had as well. Yes, it too was very reliable. - Friar Will
Hondas, 12 of them in the immediate family over the years. - Anne Bouey
My Volvo XC99 - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
1965 Ford Mustang and 1950 GMC panel truck. - Greg GuitarBuster
Citroen AX Lx - obe
2007 Volkswagen Beetle. - Steven Perez from Android
!984 Oldsmobile Cutlas Ciara, that we named Betsy. But the most reliable I ever paid for was a friend's used Toyota cargo van that had over a million miles on it before he retired from the courier biz and sold it to another courier driver. - April Russo
I'm still driving my 1992 Honda Civic. - Marie from iPhone
Toss up between my '97 Civic EX and my '80 Ford Fairmont Sedan. That thing was a friggin' BEAST. My current Civic is too new to really sing the praises of but it's not let me down yet, so. - Hookuh Tinypants

My old Hyundai Excel was pretty reliable. In 18 years I had to replace the clutch twice and that was the worst of it. My Subaru Baja has been pretty reliable over the 10 years I've had it. - vicster: full-bodied

The doctor said I should be able to dance again, but not for a year. I can get through this but I feel grief like a part of me has died, albeit temporarily. BF telling me 10min later I should be glad I'm not paralyzed. Can I be sad, FF?
I mean it's only my #1 coping mechanism AND way to get in touch with my emotions, plus my favorite mode of self-expression, not to mention the only activity that has consistently brought me joy at all times of my life. - Lo from Android
You can be sad. And you can certainly grieve a loss, even if you know it's temporary. - Anne Bouey
YES. I'm so sad for you. I've been out of dance for a month with mono and am heartbroken, I can't even imagine what you're going through other than knowing it sucks times ten million. :-( Sending dance love <3 - Lola Bean (Penguin) from iPhone
I recognize that it's good to look at the positive, and I am making a big effort, but that felt so invalidating of my feelings, I do believe some reassurance might be in order. He sounds right, but it feels so shitty. - Lo from Android
On the actual bright side, I've found five ways (so far!) to enjoy the magic of dance despite my limitations. Fuck those restrictions! - Lo from Android
Could you expand your dance to choreography during your down time? - Janet from FFHound!
Lo, you get to feel any and every way that you feel about not being able to dance. Or about anything else, for that matter. *sends speedy healing love* - vicster: full-bodied
I hope you're better soon. Losing a creative outlet really sucks. *hugs* - John (bird whisperer)
Absolutely!!! I'll be sad with and for you, in fact. *hug* - Lisa L. Seifert from iPhone
I figure we feel sad when bad things happen because it's part of how we grieve - you can still be grateful about other things, but still sad about those. I hope that your recovery is swift, but it feels totally understandable to be down a little about your situation now. - Jennifer Dittrich
Thanks guys :) It's a real boost, since I see so few people these days. - Lo from Android
Thanks for the dance love, Penguin! First thing I did after that discussion was text a dance friend... you get it! I also really appreciate the choreography suggestion, I've had a multi-year project on the back brain burner for a long time, and that sounds great. I was discouraged about not being able to do much even mentally for a while, but it's getting better with less painkillers. - Lo from Android
The grief of "what might have been" is part of our physical limitations the grief of :"what if" and "what now" I hope you can find solace in music and movement that is perhaps not dance but something else that is you escaping your sadness and static place. Know perhaps that your feeling now could enrich your palette of emotions for a dance you build in your mind that others may share. I send you peace and empathy and healing thoughts and the knowledge that this to shall pass - WarLord
Emotions are seldom an either/or, strictly one emotion affair. We feel many things at once. They are all valid. Hope and positivity for the future and grief and sadness for the now often live comfortably (and uncomfortably) together. - Michael W. May

Honest Question: Is Google Glass still a thing? Is it on a slow boil or has that flame kinda dwindled.
I see some being worn in these parts. But I think they're still cooking up what they want it to be. - Stephen Mack
They just started selling them to the general public last week. - Kevin Fox
Physical thing doesn't mean it's a thing. There's been plenty of tech that's gone for public sale that's missed it's time or failed to engage. - Johnny
I was thinking about it before. While I'm not in the market for either device, Google Glass verse a smartwatch, I'd go smartwatch all the time. I get the concept of Glass but I am still in the camp of passive tech. I don't mind looking at my wrist rather than having it always in my peripheral (and intrusive to those I interact with). - Johnny

"Apple got more details right on their watch than the vast majority of Swiss and Asian brands do with similarly priced watches, and those details add up to a really impressive piece of design." - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla) from Bookmarklet
This: "... The Apple Watch is absolutely the best smart watch on the planet. That much I'm sure of. But are we sure that wearable technology is something we really want? In the same way those who publicly wore blue-tooth headsets five years ago and those who wore Google Glass one year ago, will smart watches ever become a thing that people genuinely want? If anyone can make it happen, it's Apple. It's going to take a lot of time, and a lot of test cases when this thing launches next year ..." - WarLord
I think the secret sauce here isn't the watch itself, but the (as yet unproven) ability of the watch to reduce friction in things like payments and IoT integration. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)

With genetic testing, I gave my parents the gift of divorce - Vox
"At first, I was thinking this is the coolest genetics story, my own personal genetics story. I wasn't particularly upset about it initially, until the rest of the family found out. Their reaction was different. Years of repressed memories and emotions uncorked and resulted in tumultuous times that have torn my nuclear family apart. My parents divorced. No one is talking to my dad. We're not anywhere close to being healed yet and I don't know how long it will take to put the pieces back together. After this discovery was made, I went back to 23andMe and talked to them. I said, "I'm not sure all your customers realize that when they participate in your family finder program, they're participating in what are essentially really advanced paternity tests."" - rönin from Bookmarklet

I highly recommend checking out Skinnytaste.com. She has been obsessed with zucchini noodles this summer (and she also has just a fantastic collection of zucchini recipes in general). She also did a really great zucchini roundup back in July (I've tried about a third of those recipes and they're pretty good) that might give you some extra ideas! - Hookuh Tinypants

Tons of great ideas here http://www.skinnytaste.com/2014... thanks Amanda! The Pizza Bites look like a good one for the zucchini that get a little too large... plus zucchini and marinara sauce seem like a delicious combo. :) Grilling or stir-frying in olive oil with onions is my go-to method, but I have everything here for the zucchini alla scapece, so I'm having that for lunch.

Cornel West: “He posed as a progressive and turned out to be counterfeit. We ended up with a Wall Street presidency, a drone presidency” http://www.salon.com/2014... via @Salon
No, the thing is he posed as a progressive and turned out to be counterfeit. We ended up with a Wall Street presidency, a drone presidency, a national security presidency. The torturers go free. The Wall Street executives go free. The war crimes in the Middle East, especially now in Gaza, the war criminals go free. And yet, you know, he acted as if he was both a progressive and as if he was concerned about the issues of serious injustice and inequality and it turned out that he’s just another neoliberal centrist with a smile and with a nice rhetorical flair. And that’s a very sad moment in the history of the nation because we are—we’re an empire in decline. Our culture is in increasing decay. Our school systems are in deep trouble. Our political system is dysfunctional. Our leaders are more and more bought off with legalized bribery and normalized corruption in Congress and too much of our civil life. You would think that we needed somebody—a Lincoln-like figure who could revive some democratic spirit and democratic possibility. - WarLord
nd we ended up with a brown-faced Clinton. Another opportunist. Another neoliberal opportunist. It’s like, “Oh, no, don’t tell me that!” I tell you this, because I got hit hard years ago, but everywhere I go now, it’s “Brother West, I see what you were saying. Brother West, you were right. Your language was harsh and it was difficult to take, but you turned out to be absolutely right.”... more... - WarLord

Water consumption used to be batch, now it's streaming. You would get a bucket of water from the well, to wash your face you would pour water from a pitcher into a bowl, baths were filled bucket by bucket. Now we have a streaming model where it flows continually into hoses, faucets, sinks, baths. Is streaming more wasteful?
It allows people to be more wasteful, certainly. I often witness other women in the women's room who run the water while looking at themselves in the mirror, while rubbing their hands together with soap, while brushing their teeth. They don't only use it when they actually need it. Furthermore, if people had to go to the effort of getting a bucket of water, it would be more precious to... more... - Spidra Webster
Preciousness is a good theme. Streaming makes thing common. - Todd Hoff
OTOH buckets of water encourage overlooking some cleanliness issues in favor of not carrying heating that heavy bucket so #tradeoffs - WarLord
