Why don't they make the whole straw out of the bendy part?

Curiously, a full half hour before supper, 9yo asks to say grace at the meal. [30 minutes later] 9yo: "..... Two mice fall into a bucket of cream..."
Did you concur? - Mark Trapp
No, too distracted - I couldn't keep my eyes off his pinstripes. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
I've been trying to help catch this basset for the last 3 days. She's been roaming around my office, but is terrified of people and other dogs. A rescuer friend set a trap for her yesterday and she avoided it. I saw her again today and this guy named Trent was able to get close enough to slip a leash around her neck. Trent and I sat with her ....
Show all
... until my rescuer friend was able to come and pick her up. She's now in their rescue program and will get the medical attention she needs and learn how to be a dog! Once the leash went around her neck she started wagging and trotting right along. It looks like she was from a backyard breeder who bred her until she couldn't produce puppies anymore. :( But she'll have a good life from here on out. - Kristin
People stepping up to help animals (and kids and the elderly) makes my heart happy. There are good people out there, y'all. - Kristin
I'm so glad she's going to be with people who give her the love she deserves. - Jennifer Dittrich
Poor sweet thing. Thank you for getting her to someone who will help! - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤
So awesome she has a path to a forever wonderful home. - Janet
So what's the story with you and Trent? :) - Steve C Team Marina
Trent is a kid that pulled over when the basset ran into traffic. He's very sweet, very YOUNG, and not that bright. He thought we should give her some Sunny D because it has "vitamins and stuff" in it. He's also Canadian. Shout out to the Canucks. - Kristin from iPhone

Please let this be a Christmas card - Steve C Team Marina
I didn't like the woman who does my physical therapy - nothing major, just rubbed me the wrong way. I hesitantly mentioned racism (talking about husband's job) and she went on this unexpected rant about the racist school system here. What a delightful surprise!
She said "my children are biracial, and..." From that point on we saw each other in a new light. At the end she doubled my PT sessions to help me be able to work soon enough to accept this new job. I believe this is the first time hating racism got me ahead in a social situation with a stranger. :D - Lo from Android

Our Ebola response shows our true colors. Ain’t pretty. - Neuron Culture
"So the richest country on earth has no team to contain the first appearance of one of the most deadly viruses we’ve ever known. Instead, apparently untrained contractors without protective clothing show up four days late and use not bleach and buckets to kill and contain the presumed hazard, but a power sprayer to blast them around. The family this patient was staying with, meanwhile, is left to its own devices, isolated from the world. They’re left to deal with the sheets and towels themselves. The fate of these linens, uninspected but possibly the most infectious single item associated with Patient Zero, is left to chance." - Victor Ganata
"This response is what you get when a country essentially has no sense of what public health is about. It’s a crystallized expression of an abiding feature of our so-called healthcare system: Health is something you do in a hospital or a doctor’s office. Generally you must pay to get it." - Victor Ganata
"Reach one of those places and maybe we can help you — an event more likely if you show ability to pay, and pay big. (Would the hospital have so quickly sent home a patient who had insurance? Statistically less likely.) Outside the paywalled environs of hospitals and offices, though, you’re on your own. This is no way to treat fellow human beings. This is no way to stop an epidemic." - Victor Ganata

Ok, here's the plan. I'm going to get liquored up and you are gonna cut this thing out of my foot. K?
Can I get liquored up, too, then? - LB's never Kippled from Android
After, yes. MAN won't do it unless he's liquored up an I'm not falling for it, he'll aim at my foot and skewer my kidney :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
I'll cut it out for you! - Janet
Janet, I would buy you a plane ticket. I'm so freakin tired of it! - Shannon - GlassMistress
Just so we're clear, I don't chisel bone, soft tissue digging only. - Janet
I think that will do it. X-ray doesn't show calcification. I think it's like the lumps I get in my hands that are probably related to CREST. Doc friend is supposed to remove at the end of the month, AFTER my trip and the bead show. I would have preferred to do those without my little friend. - Shannon - GlassMistress

I know that the people here at work are not all at the same experience and intelligence level. And that's okay. However, if you don't even start to try and figure things things out after working here for more than a year...I'm really wondering why we give you the title of analyst. And "I can't do this..." is not the way to ask for help. -cont-
And when I ask for you to give me a second to look something up? DON'T CONTINUE TO TALK TO ME ABOUT IT. Especially since I asked you at least twice. At least. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
*breathes in* *breathes out* Okay, only 13 more hours to go then it's the "weekend". (Fortunately only five with the individual that prompted this post.) - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
That sounds like my kids! And it's bad enough coming from them at 7 and 3, let alone an adult who should know better. - Melly - #TeamMarina
I shouldn't assume that the situation that came up this morning has happened to this individual but by now it should have at least once or twice. "Hey, I can't remember the steps we need to take to do X." is wildly better than "I can't do X." But that's why they pay me the big bucks, to guide them along the path. So a little bit of shame on me for my attitude this morning. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
I can really relate to the whole "Give me a second" thing, and then not being given a second. Drives me NUTS. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Say 'onboarding' one. more. time.

If I say "onboarding" again, are you going to turn into a change agent? - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
We're pivoting away from onboarding. It's now called reghacking. - Mark Trapp
"As thought leaders, we think that that our clients should onboard automagically..." - Brent Schaus
I'm getting a lot of push back from Micah in respect to onboarding. Definitely not a thought leader. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
You're not creating the optimal cross-functional, multi-platform synergy to facilitate a smooth onboarding paradigm. - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist

Steve's Mr. 12 and Mr. 9 were here last night. I asked Mr. 9 if he'd seen pictures of your house and he hadn't, so we looked at them together. He thinks it's a beautiful house, and he wishes he could see it in person. He obviously still has a thing for you, and he's adorable about it. - Mama Lawson

I hope that some day he can come visit. That would be tons of fun. - lris

Note to selves. Don't schedule a photo shoot in the middle of what's supposed your baby's normal nap time. I'm honestly surprised we got any usable shots. He was not a happy camper for most of our time there. These are literally the best shots. That said I think these came out well. - DB, Lil LB's Dad

Upstate Yearbook Photo: Teen Poses With His Cat, His Principal, Principal's Dog & Lasers: Gothamist
"Earlier this month, an upstate NY high school student lobbied to have his school yearbook senior class photograph consist of an endearing portrait of himself with his cat Mr. Bigglesworth and some lasers. But the school declined, opting for uniformity. Nevertheless, Schenectady High School ultimately agreed to another compromise photograph. And it's spectacular." - rönin from Bookmarklet
