Step mom went out for some last minute shopping so I hauled over to their house and snapped a few more photos oh the pup. Much better this time, but this dog will not look at the camera, grr. I'd have liked one good head on shot. Ah well. Here goes, pick three please.

2, 3, 5 - Pete
3 and 5 have the most character, i think. - Big Joe Silence
3 is my fave. <3 - The First NoeLB from Android
Lounging puppy in the first and third are priceless! I like the last two also. - Heather

I snuck outside with my step-mom's dog today and tried to take her photo as a xmas gift. Every time I plopped down in the grass with her she'd try to get in my lap resulting plenty of odd shots. The frame I have has 3 parts. I think if I'd gotten one 'face on' photo I could used what I have but I'm not sure these work. What do you think?

I love the third one, very sweet. - Heather
I think they're lovely and show her personality. Especially as a triptych. I say do it. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
What T-ra said. - Corinne L
When I first got Daisy, I had trouble getting a body shot of her. Every time she saw me looking at her, she came and sat down in front of me. I finally got a shot by pretending to run up the stairs. She ran ahead of me, and when she saw I had stopped, she stopped and turned and I clicked the shutter. (Later, I was able to get good body shots.) - bentley
T-ra speaks truth. - The First NoeLB from Android

Pretty sure people have complained about all those things, not just the movie. - Heather
True, they have, but the collective national freak out about The Interview getting pulled sure seems a lot bigger than any of the ones listed. - Andrew C (✔)

What a horrible week for Australia :( #fb
For those who haven't heard, a few days after the siege in Martin Place, Sydney, 8 children between the ages of 18 months and 15 years have been found stabbled to death in Cairns. - Melly Claus #anticaper
Oh, that's awful. - John (bird whisperer)
:'( - Tamara J. B.
Good grief! :-( - vicster: hon. canadian

Wow - Rodfather from Android
I can't even. - Julian

Seems like they could have chosen an older surgeon general. You know, out of...respect.
What do you mean? (I don't know much about the position or the politics behind it other than the procedural maneuver they did to get him confirmed over the weekend.) - Mark Trapp
Oh, that it makes me feel unaccomplished for being older than he is and still not appointed to any federal office :( - Meg VMeg
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh, I see: haha, I was Googling to see if there was some secret Surgeon General's code or something. But I get you: I feel the same way about various CEOs. - Mark Trapp
Never watch gymnastics or figure skating. >.< - Heather
Technically I was appointed by congress when my commission was confirmed at 22 :) - Christina Pikas from iPhone
I learned 3 things from this post. 1) there's a new surgeon general, 2) he's also younger than me and 3) somehow Koop is always the SG in my mind. isn't Koop dead? - ellbeecee
Koop is my Surgeon General like Bartlet is my President. - Kirsten
I <3 Kirsten. :) (I also think I <3 this new Junior Agent Surgeon General guy. Who might actually be old enough to drink in some states.) (Get off my lawn.) - Catherine Pellegrino
+1 Kirsten. - bentley
The cat just tried to slit me open down the middle. It worked, I think she could get a job as a scalpel.
No pics, she got me right between the boobs. - Heather
Ah! One of my cats got me right underneath; I still have a big scar. It looked like I had been ravaged by a werewolf. Neosporin! - joey
Chris took care of it right away for me. I walked around going "owwwwwww". It would be a cool scar though, look like I had open heart surgery with a drunk doctor. - Heather

I just made and ate the world's most unhealthy lunch but it was SO GOOD.
hot dog wrapped in crescent rolls... basically a hillbilly sausage roll. - Sarah G.
I just had that over the weekend and yes it is - WarLord
Couldn't you have battered and deep-fried the whole thing? - Walt Crawford
About 3 times/week, I make myself an extremely unhealthy sandwich for lunch. Two slices of sourdough bread, buttered on the outside. 3-5 slices of hard salami, 3-5 slices of sandwich pepperoni, 4 small slices of turkey, 4 small slices of chicken and 1-1/2 slices of swiss cheese; grilled on my Foreman Grill, then a little bit of mayonnaise and mustard. I probably shouldn't eat that as regularly as I do, but it's so tasty. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
That sounds really good. - Sarah G.
No, I still think this wins - sglassme
I think I just had a heart attack from simply clicking on sglassme's link. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Did you add cheese? Cuz yum. - Heather

I've occasionally thought about buying sandpaper to upgrade my free takeout chopsticks. It would be cheaper to just buy good chopsticks.
I like the shiny coated chopsticks. - Heather
I have plastic ones at work - they're easier to clean and last longer. Not my preferred, but (for me) better at the office. - Jennifer Dittrich

Wow. Hope they put him on permanent leave. - Spidra Webster
Yeah, maybe he shouldn't be a police officer. - Eivind from Android
So... Not being able to breathe is threatening? The things you learn from the internet... - Heather
It amazes me that people like this continually say that America is the best country in the world, while also feeling the need to carry a gun 24/7 and being willing to kill anyone at a moments notice because it's so dangerous... - Chris Topher

"On a recent business trip to Ottawa, Christine Karcza stayed at a hotel with an accessible room intended to accommodate a range of disabilities from blindness to mobility issues. Ms. Karcza, who walks with two canes, was happy to see a chair placed in the shower, as well as shower heads at chair height, as well as higher up. But when she sat down in the shower chair, she realized the lower nozzle didn’t work. To have a shower, she had to stand up to turn on the upper nozzle. “Fortunately, they had good hand bars and I managed,” she says. “Had I been in a wheelchair I wouldn’t have been able to shower.” Such occurrences are common, says Ms. Karcza, who runs I Can Do This, a consulting business focused on creating inclusive environments for businesses and government organizations. “Hotels have accessible rooms, but one of the biggest challenges is that the understanding of accessibility is lacking,” she says. “You’ll find the rod to hold the clothes in the closet is up high, not at... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet
"As part of their training, Mr. Berglund makes hotel executives navigate their hotels in wheelchairs, to familiarize them with the challenges." - Heather
^^^ Ought to be an exercise in school as early as 6th grade, I think. - Spidra Webster
One year in 6/7th grade we were going to pair up and each spend half a day blindfolded with the other person leading us to see what it's like being blind. It never happened. I was so disappointed. - Heather
Being Australian, I sometimes lament not having a specific food ancestory or specialized dishes (family or community based) but my recent head-first dive into food culture makes me thankful I can easily swap between, and muddle together, the full spectrum of world cusine and my friends enjoy the ride just as easily.
Could explore Aboriginal cuisine? It's quite varied - Mo Kargas
Being half Finn I've gotten into Finn food, but like half if it involved pickled herring so.... Other than baked goods, Finn food isn't all that appealing. - Heather
Mo, I've dabbled in a few recipes but it's not easy to source a lot of the floral spices locally. Lots of mail order spice places are popping up online and getting them is getting easier. - Johnny from iPhone
I've never tried making the recipes myself, only had it provided to me by various bush communities. I can imagine the ingredients would be hard to find outside specialty shops. - Mo Kargas

Totally random question: if someone were explicitly choosing to celebrate their "Jesus year" (i.e., turning 33), what's a punny(?) small gift you could bring to the party? Or something small for the 10-15 people there? I am bad at Jesus and puns.
A bottle of water that you secretly replace with wine during the party? - Zamms from iPhone
Maybe something that requires less subterfuge. - Meg VMeg
(Not really a serious response, but) a Kanye West album - Victor Ganata
A bottle of water that's colored to look like wine? - Laura
Delicious delicious subterfudge - Zamms from iPhone
Victor, I had considered a recording of "Izzo (H.O.V.A.)" - Meg VMeg
yes to he izzo - kendrak
I dunno, but they better be serving loaves and fishes. - Soup in a TARDIS
Nails? - Andrew C (✔)
If it's a potluck and you need to bring a dish, I'd suggest smoked salmon and a baguette, plus Greek olive oil for dipping the bread. For a punny gift, hmmm. A jar of mustard seed, grape jelly, a stuffed toy camel, a small pack of sewing needles. (I'm thinking of parables and sermons here.) - Corinne L
Damn, LB beat me to my first suggestion. My second would be this: (I carry them in my purse, incidentally) - Hookuh Tinypants
Frankenscense! - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
A basket with flour and yeast, a packet of fishing hooks, water wings and one earring. - Johnny
Lamb chops >.> - Heather
These are excellent. I am ranking them in terms of likelihood of acquisition by Friday. - Meg VMeg
Steampunk Sandals! It doesn't have to make sense. - Micah
Overpriced. - Joe
Communion wafers? - John Dupuis
A copy of John Prine's The Missing Years. Or just the lyrics to "Jesus: The Missing Years." Preferably the live version where he talks about how he can't figure out how Jesus managed such a long time without everyone knowing where he was--"I snuck away on a fishing trip once with this waitress, and by the time we got back to Nashville everyone knew where we'd been." - laura x from iPhone
This is what I ended up making (apologies for lack of horizontality) - Meg VMeg

Not a plot spoiler, really. Just know that Monroe is playing with his train set again in the Christmas episode. :D
Yay! I love Monroe and I'm actually a bit sorry that we don't get as much quality Monroe as we did when he was single (I like Rosalee, too, FTR). - Spidra Webster
One of my favorite Season One moments was when we first saw how he decorates for Christmas. - Katy S
Bud is in the episode, too. It's like they're giving me a Christmas present. - Katy S
Just watched it. Fun episode. - Corinne L
I love Monroe's holiday enthusiasm. - Heather
Just one of the many endearing things about him. - Spidra Webster

Why in the name of all that is good and pumpkin pie are you all not on Facebook yet?
Facebook is where I stab myself in the eye. - Meg VMeg
I'd pay to see that! ;) - Scoble, Alex Scoble
facebook is dying. at least that's what i heard - Sir Shuping is just sir
I'm already missing how friendfeed does the river after 5 minutes of being back on here - Scoble, Alex Scoble
I follow people, not logos. - Johnny
Facebook is where I'm not paid to stab myself in the eye :( - Meg VMeg
LOL, Johnny, you are on Facebook...very funny though. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Facebook is where grandparents and co-workers are. - lris
What's Facebook? - Steven Perez from Android
Real answer: because there are one million (or fewer) people on FF and one billion (or more) on Facebook. (I'd guess most of us also have FB accounts, but I certainly spend ten times as much time here among a smaller, more select group.) - Walt Crawford
I keep asking myself why I am still on there. - Jim: meatvalve.
I'm there, but I prefer to be here. - The First NoeLB from Android
I'm on there once a year to wish someone a happy birthday. I like it here better. - bentley
Because FF is still better than FB even if FB has the critical mass. - Spidra Webster
Isn't the better question why are you on Facebook? - Todd Hoff
Facebook? Eww! - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
I'm there, and I'm in the Friendfeed group. Because that's where we meet to complain that ff is down, and announce when it's back up again. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
I like LB's answer. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
The day I use Facebook is when pigs fly :) - imabonehead
Also: Iain Baker. - Meg VMeg
I'm not old enough for Facebook. There are predators on Facebook. - Steve C Team Marina
I am, but I mostly just lurk and get really angry on FB. - Jenny H. from Android
Facebook is for head-shaking and lying and pretending to approve of assholes you work with. - Big Joe Silence
Facebook is where I argue politics and my daughter uses my account to play games - WarLord
I'm there about as much as I'm on any socnet these days. And that's not much. Healthier. - J. Marie B
Because Also, what WoH: Professor MOTHRA said. - AHnix (Anna Haro)
Here because of the Shannon–Hartley law. Social networks are all about the signal/noise ratio. - David Lounsbury
The real question is, why is Facebook not on you? - Steele Lawman from Android
I'm on FB because most of my iPad games require it. Also because despite the fact I "deleted" my real account, it's still there. - Heather
Cat knocked over another plant. Maybe they'll start taking the plants seriously now?
Sounds more like the plants better start taking the cats seriously! - Andrew C (✔) from Android
The plants are in the back room (because they're not cat safe and she loves them) so the door should always be closed. I think 2 have already been chucked because she knocked them over. - Heather
I first read that as "planet": "Wow, that's some cat." - MoTO: #TeamMarina
That gives me an idea.... - Heather
ruh roh... - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Plant was cleaned up and kept. Apparently we just have to keep the door closed all the time and if something happens whatever. - Heather
Will The Librarian movies help explain the characters on the show? I'm getting the Library is like the Warehouse... Well the whole thing is like Warehouse...
Yes - honestly, you really only need the first one, though the other two are pretty fun. - Jennifer Dittrich
you must watch all three!! they are cheesey and goofy as hell, but fun! also kate from castle is in one of them. and it has bob newhart! you can't go wrong with bob newhart! - Sir Shuping is just sir
So we will reserve The Librarians at the library so we can understand The Librarians show better. :) - Heather
Most annoying things about the internet:
Tumblr never has a source, it just loops back to another Tumblr. - Heather
Food pictures without recipes. - Heather
The Tumblr thing, absolutely. - bentley
Twitter pictures that are too small to read. And clicking on it hoping to embiggen it does nothing at all. - bentley
and about Tumblr, it feels like half the time the source Tumblr has either deleted the post or renamed their entire tumblr altogether, breaking links like crazy. - Andrew C (✔)
That access to it in the US has gone from decentralized small ISPs to being cornered by a very few large corporations. - Spidra Webster
Anyone watch Amish Renogades?
Yeah I think Albert is hilarious - WarLord
Tonight they're in Boston and I loved Albert learning the accent. "What's a hoss?" - Heather

i am pondering something different for our Christmas dinner. no ham/turkey. I did a rib roast last year. don't want anything too fussy because i have to transport. is holiday meatloaf a thing?
*googles "paula deen meatloaf"* - holly #ravingfangirl
*laughing* i've done this search before. - holly #ravingfangirl
ooh, Pioneer Woman must have some good meatloaf recipes... - holly #ravingfangirl
aaaand i already have it bookmarked. perhaps i should be looking at what i've already saved. >.> - holly #ravingfangirl
What about duck? - Andy
hmm i've never cooked duck. - holly #ravingfangirl
In my teens, our fancy holiday dinner, since none of us particularly liked turkey, was stuffed pork chops. All I remember of the recipe is that you start with 1" pork chops. - bentley
ooooh, pork chops are good too. - holly #ravingfangirl
Whatever meal you decide to cook becomes a thing. It's your holiday, enjoy it how you want to. And yeah, meatloaf is awesome. - Mary Carmen
Smothered pork chops! - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
We sometimes do lasagna, but my dad has said that they used to have meatloaf for Christmas when he was a kid. - Katy S
shape it like a reindeer head, stick broken pretzels on top for antlers, a cherry tomato for a very shiny nose? - Starmama
My vegetarian relatives often serve lasagna, and there was a vegetarian meatloaf-esque dish I've made in the past (even the meat lovers enjoyed it). One year I was at a Christmas dinner where the main course was beef Wellington. Sooooo good. - Corinne L
We usually have a lasagna. Since my cousin is vegetarian, the lasagna is veggy too. - Heather
Since it's just the three of us, Prime Rib is our Holiday Meal - WarLord
How long is long enough for it to be too late to reconnect with people?
I don't believe there's any such thing; I've reconnected with people 46 years later (in one case). - Walt Crawford
^^this. - Corinne L
Conversely, you can always claim it's too late and that you don't think connecting would do any good. (I have.) - Heather
Not too late. I just reconnected last year with a friend I hadn't seen nor heard from in 16 years. We are now better friends than ever. - maʀtha
#cosign all the above. And as you get older, you'll be glad to see any friendly face from the past that you run across. - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Worm. On my finger. From the cat. Need bleach.
Bad news, it was a tapeworm segment. Good news, zero chance of people getting tapeworm. - Heather

today's challenge: finding origami books that aren't full of pretty paper that will just be ripped out.
Could you put a processing note to remove the paper before releasing to the shelvers? - bentley
we do that sometimes, but sometimes it is more trouble than it's worth and the books just look bad, they come back because people think part of the book is missing, etc. - holly #ravingfangirl
I have one, but it's in Japaneses... - Heather
oh, they are out there, i just have to choose very, very carefully. :) - holly #ravingfangirl
