She got up, so I put the iPad on my lap. She meowed at me and demanded her spot back. - Heather
Steve C Team Marina
Was just discussing this with co-worker - I'm not allowed to go to Knotts Scary Farm (Halloweened out amusement park here in Oct) or similar Halloween scare the beejezus out of you places. My fight or flight instinct is set to fight so if something jumps out at me I punch it in the face then kick it in the balls then call its mother names.
The 16 year olds playing zombies for minimum wage probably deserve better than that. - Steve C Team Marina
I was nearly thrown out of Knotts Scary Farm years and years ago for inserting myself (and thus touching them) between a cast member and a little kid he was terrifying. - Soup in a TARDIS
Oh, Steve! I can just imagine this. Probably for the best that you don't go. XD - Spidra Webster
My friend got pulled off a hay ride accidentally once. Another time we were forced into the fun house after the hay ride and I crashed into 4 people when my flight instinct kicked in. I haven't gone back. - Heather

Finally got to meet the fur baby. Totally in love

She likes the bird toy I got her, but I haven't gotten a pic yet. - Heather

I'm officially transitioning from baker to pastry chef. It may seem an abstract difference, but I feel gratified and respected, and I like about the fact that there's a tinge of affirmative action in play. It's kinda crap that historically women belonged in the kitchen, but only men were good enough to go pro. Further good news in comments.
For the folks that follow my story, bless you kind souls, I talked to the executive chef (my direct boss) a bit more about my injury. Physical therapy is going well, but it's slow and I'm daunted by the job ahead. The restaurant opening got delayed another week, so that's good for me. Now I will get a week of training alone in the kitchen with EC. I can run through our opening dessert menu, and he'll work with me some on bread (by far my weak spot, I am lord of desserts but bread was always my husband's domain). If I can't keep up with the workload, they will hire an assistant for me... the most qualified other applicant for my job, an older man who specializes in bread. So that'll be incredibly helpful, and I gotta say it feels great that someone wants to hire me this bad. After my demoralizing experience losing my last job, I am very fortunate to have someone pursuing me when the thought of me pursuing a job was a bit overwhelming. Feeling grateful is the best, y'all. - Lo
It sounds like you landed in a very good situation. Congratulations! - bentley
That's fantastic! - Spidra Webster
I know the difference, & I'm impressed :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

Chris Topher
So this happened.
image.jpg
She is very cuddly and incredibly curious. She also seems to thoroughly enjoy chicken! She is still going through some gastro issues that she's had for the past week, but I am confident it will pass soon. - Chris Topher
I can't wait to meet her. - Heather
Oh! Basic info: Her given name is Trinket, she is 5 months old, quite small for her age, and quite the talkative kitty...and is OBSESSED with sneaking into the bathroom o.0 - Chris Topher
The bathroom is where that revolving scratching veil is. - Spidra Webster
She is battling diarrhea at the moment. The adoption center gave us some bland food to mix with some regular food. Since we got her home around 3, she has had it 3 times so far. Does anyone have any tips/tricks for us until she gets better? - Chris Topher
A layer of newspaper in the bottom of the litter box will make it easier to clean, and until she gets better, you will have to clean it very frequently, so don't put that much litter on top of the newspaper. - April Russo
Thanks April! - Chris Topher
Shannon - GlassMistress
Mom's version of 'Give the dog a bone': vTake sliced beef bone from freezer and boil it to death. Remove marrow and any meat bits. Pin dog's ears behind her hair with a hair clip (standard poodle with very full ears). Give the do the bone. Demand dog take it out on the porch. Raise voice at confused dog (porch door is closed). Apologize to dog
....and open door. Wait 30 seconds and freak out that dog will get something on porch carpet. Take bone away from dog and spread sheet on floor. Return bone to dog. Go wash dishes used to cook bone. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Why does she remove the marrow and meat? - Anika
Why does she cook it? Honestly I'm not asking her, she'll assume I'm criticizing (which I might be) - Shannon - GlassMistress
Raw bones are safest because they're softer. #troublemaker - Heather
The marrow is the best part. - bentley

Does anyone know of FREE online resources for rental listings that are not craigslist or government?
I don't see much that appears in your budget but this group on FB would be a good place to post what you're looking for and see if people have suggestions. https://www.facebook.com/groups... - Spidra Webster
Is there a FB page for your area? I live in a smaller town but people are always posting local houses and apartments for rent. - Trish R
You are in Oakland though. My bad :( - Janet
The local humane society had this on their website. http://www.myapartmentmap.com/pet_fri... - Heather
Spidra, a friend of mine is an admin of that group, as I found out when she approved my join request :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I hope someone there is able to hook you up. - Spidra Webster
Looks like it's all shared housing, which section 8 doesn't allow. But I'm searching everywhere, even though there's really nothing. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
That's why I'd make a post to the group. Tell people what you're looking for and they can keep their eyes out for you or may already know of something. - Spidra Webster
I don't know. I will say that Padmapper theoretically pulls from multiple sources besides CL but in my limited experience the non-CL postings had a much higher frequency of seeming shady or bogus. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
Yeah I have saved text I'm posting everywhere, even where I doubt there'll be any results. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Do you have Nextdoor.com? - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Found this when I was searching on Section 8. Don't know if the rentals I'm seeing are, though. One is a $1,200 in Richmond, another is a $1,300 in Oakland. http://www.crpmrealty.com/rental-... - Spidra Webster
This place seems free to look. It has filters for dogs and for Section 8. http://www.walkscore.com/apartme... - Spidra Webster
Thank you! - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

One of the issues when talking about #GamerGate stuff is subtly, context and truth. The gent I was talking too this morning is 100% correct when he said you end up killing far more male enemies in a game than the one female the inspires the protagonist. The problem is the only reason a female character is in there is to inspire...
... that protagonist to go on a killing spree. - Johnny
So I'm correct and he is correct. He may not be right in the wider context BUT he isn't just some deluded keyboard masher - Johnny
That's a big part of the reaction to Anita Sarkeesian's videos. She looks at the overall picture, but the people who react so negatively focus on each game independently of each other. - Heather
I also think for a number of gamers (myself included) play in such a way that unless it's a heavily story-driven game, I skip the cutscenes. I don't necessarily always see the underlying storyline and the tropes, although I am usually conscious of it. I can honestly say I've played a number of games that have been called out during Gamer Gate that I missed the things that caused issues. - Johnny

Dear females who use the laundry room: please make sure you grab all your laundry out of the dryer. I'm tired of finding g-strings in my basket.
Bunneh...we know that those are yours - Sir Shuping is just sir
No way. I dry clean my delicates. - Steven Perez
Maybe it's a hint. - Heather
Hmm, there was that one ginger at the pool a few weeks ago ... - Steven Perez
a ginger?? was it the Doctor?? - Sir Shuping is just sir
No, although she did say something about a sonic screwdriver. - Steven Perez

Feminism’s ugly internal clash: Why its future is not up to white women - Salon.com - http://www.salon.com/2014...
"White women’s feminisms still center around /equality/, a point on which Traister and Shulevitz converge. Black women’s feminisms demand /justice/. There is a difference. One kind of feminism focuses on the policies that will help women integrate fully into the existing American system. The other recognizes the fundamental flaws in the system and seeks its complete and total transformation." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
I haven't read it yet, but I'm fairly confident I'll love it. - Eivind from Android
As much as I identify as a feminist, I'm guilty of being naive about the differences between experience and goals of white women and women of color. I've read several articles about white feminists not understanding feminism as a whole, But I'm lost on where to educate myself. If anyone knows of something (especially something akin to the Invisible Backpack style) to start with I'd love to know about it. - Heather

Our first Trader Joe's is now open. What are your go to Trader Joe's items?
pain au chocolat (frozen, trust me...), naan, simmer sauces, ginger granola cereal, Italian blood orange soda, lavash... I'm forgetting a bunch of stuff... - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist
The Indian shelf-stable meals. The Indian frozen meals are pretty good, too. They're cheaper on dairy than most grocery stores. Their ice cream is private labeled Double Rainbow and is some of the best richest non-chunky ice cream you'll find. The mushroom hors d'oeuvres are to die for. I will scarf those in one sitting if someone doesn't stop me. I second the Italian blood orange soda.... more... - Spidra Webster
OOH! I remembered something else: they have pre-marinated meats. kalbi, carne asada, and the like. Those have been really good, too. - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist
The already-cooked carnitas is good to grab when you're too tired to do more than heat something up. - Spidra Webster
Harvest Hodgepodge frozen veggies (great for stir fry), frozen chicken breasts, turkey bacon (both regular and pepper), flavored sparkling water, organic lemonade, pomegranate lime juice (great with vodka), chicken apple sausage, guacamole, hummus, salsa especial (refrigerated section), salsa autentica (near the tortilla chips), simmer sauces (the masala one is my favorite), olive... more... - Corinne L
OH YES. The carne asada is so good you want to slap someone. Ground beef & ground turkey are great too. - Corinne L
I need to get the pomegranate lime juice next time I'm there... this is going to be one of my favorite threads, I can tell. - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist
They used to have a chicken salad sandwich on pretzel bread... I don't know if they still have it (pre-made, refrigerated section) but if they do... it was great. - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist
I am so hungry now. Eric, will your Trader Joe's be selling beer & wine? If so, and you like good wine, I'd recommend getting friendly with their wine buyer as they will clue you in to some great deals. - Corinne L
I can't even imagine a TJ's not selling wine. Wine & cheese were what the store was founded on. (That is, you've introduced me to the novelty of TJ's in possibly dry counties...) - Spidra Webster
Oh, I can't stress this strongly enough: get on the Fearless Flyer mailing list, or make sure you check it regularly online. I've made a number of discoveries reading that. - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist
In several places back east grocery stores can't sell beer, wine or liquor, Spidra. It was quite a shocker when I moved to CA 14 years ago & went to Safeway or Vons and there were ALL THE BOOZY THINGS. - Corinne L
We have a state law that a single entity can only sells alcohol at one location. They chose the Denver store for the booze. - Eric - It's My Thing from iPhone
*kisses the ground of California* - Spidra Webster
HA HA HA Spidra! - Corinne L
Jo-Jo's, always get the Jo-Jo's. Never be embarrasses to impulse buy the check out counter chocolate, you can't go wrong. - Heather
I swear by their handmade tortillas. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Maple cream cookies. - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
Cheeses! Kalbi - my kids would eat it every day if I let them. Uncooked bratwurst. Their Clif bars tend to be cheaper than elsewhere. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
Pre-made curried chicken salad. TJ's brand pita crackers. Indian simmer sauces. Naan. Their pre-made thanksgiving stuffing is tasty. - Lnorigb from FFHound!
Peanut butter, apple sauce, coffee, Californian olive oil, roster red pepper soup, frozen pizza, ginger cookies, meat,syrah cheese, sprouted grain bread - Mr. The Jason Fleming from Android
The apple cider. - Julian
I should give their Fort Worth store another chance, armed with a shopping list from this post. - Greg GuitarBuster
pain au chocolat. And more pain au chocolat. - Glen Campbell
Nuts, California e.v. olive oil (local makers with $20/half liter EVOO say "get TJ's if you can't afford ours"), Israeli cous cous, maple syrup (we get Grade A Canadian, but there's also Grade B and Vermont), the three-small-chocolate-bars-in-a-wrapper Dark and Extra Dark varieties and the organic Extra Dark chocolate bars. Oh, and dried fruit. - Walt Crawford
Their nuts and dried fruit are wonderful! I keep a bag of the mesquite almonds in my drawer at work for snacks and their sweet and spicy pecans and dried cranberries are very tasty in salads. I also love their mild cheddar and triple cream brie cheese and they have a smoked mozzarella that was very good in my omelette the other night. - vicster: full-bodied
Do they have anything that is not pre-made? - Elena
Yes - you can get cheese, meats, vegetables etc. - Glen Campbell
Lots of stuff, Elena. TJ's is like any other grocery store in many respects, just on a smaller scale. Most of their items are TJ's own label(s). You could conceivably do all your grocery shopping there, but if there are certain brand items you want (e.g., Coca Cola products, Tyson poultry) you would have to go to your local major supermarket. - Corinne L
Coffee. Nuts. Frozen green beans. Appetizers. Frozen Indian foods. Simmer sauce. Pumpkin butter - Christina Pikas from iPhone
COOKIE BUTTER. - Lola Bean (Penguin) from iPhone
OMG how had we forgotten about Cookie Butter? - Julian
I'm not close enough to a Trader Joe's to go very often, unfortunately. When I do visit one, I make sure to check out the cheese selection and the beer and wine. - John (bird whisperer)
I refuse to even try the cookie butter because I'd go back 4 times a week to replenish my stock of it. - vicster: full-bodied
WHAT IS COOKIE BUTTER?? - Elena
The cheap wine been mentioned yet? - Joe
These are great. Joe, the cheap wine will not be available at the Colorado Springs location. Colorado only allows liquor sales at one location. This is why our Costco stores have a separate liquor store run by a small business, but obviously in partnership with Costco. - Eric - It's My Thing
Went to the TJ in Denver today. Got some cookie butter, sipping chocolate, Halloween Jo joe's, beer & wine. Didn't want to get anything that had to be refrigerated since I was an hour away from home. I'll save cheese & other cold goodies for the one her in C/S. - Elena

When my girlfriend talks to other people about me, she refers to me as "The Doctor". This sometimes causes confusion among Doctor Who fans.

yeah...i had them give me that bullshit as well when i reported someone that was becoming extremely verbally abusive towards a friend. - Sir Shuping is just sir
I figure it's still worth reporting; maybe if enough people flood them with reports it will somehow get through. I dunno. Maybe not if it's all automated, but I don't know what else to do. - Jandy
it is def. worth reporting. if it gains enough attention as well, as this is is likely to, it may force twitter to at least change the policy - Sir Shuping is just sir
It feels sad and weird that reporting abusive and harassing behavior has a higher bar on twitter than it does in public. I see some woman getting chased down the street and threatened in public, I can call 911. On a public twitter thread? Nope. - Jennifer Dittrich from FFHound!
Jennifer, it's hard not to assume that Twitter thinks a harasser's right to free speech trumps their target's right not to be harassed. "It's unfortunate that you're terrified for your life right now, but he has the right to say whatever he wants." The harassing account has been taken down now, but it's a small victory. It was a sock puppet account made solely for this purpose. - Jandy

Poll: You drop a piece of candy on the ground. Do you: (A) Pick it up within five seconds and eat it, (B) Throw it away, or (C) Other
image1.JPG
c: make an art piece with it - Sir Shuping is just sir
B, most of the time - Jennifer Dittrich
B. Always. - Anika
C: don't eat/drop candy - Meg VMeg
B. always - Amit Patel
depends on the candy - hard candy like the one pictured, if sufficiently hard and not too sticky, then A; melty chocolate will most likely be handled with B (but with infinite sadness). - Ken Gidley
Depends on the ground. And yeah, depends on the candy. When I was a kid, we didn't have the five second rule. Instead, we crossed ourselves (it was a Catholic country). All of us kids knew it was safe to eat dropped food if you crossed yourself. :-) - bentley
My answer is similar to Betsy's. :-) - John (bird whisperer)
C, if it's like the candy above I rinse it off. There is no 5 second rule, grossness sticks, but hard candy can be rinsed. - Heather
I suspect Heather's right, but for Jolly Rancher? B. - Walt Crawford
Definitely A - Friar Will
Usually A unless it's a manky floor. A quick visual inspection and blow job normally determines if I have to resort to B. :D - Jenny H. from Android
^^^^ We still talking about candy? or have we switched to "Candy"? - Ken Gidley
Depends on the substrate, but I'd say 95% of the time, B. - Hookuh Tinypants
A. Unless it's sticky and picked up carpet and hair fibers. - Louis Gray
A. for linoleum, tile or hardwood and as long as it's hairfree. Also it depends on the type of candy. - NOT THE CRICKET
A - Janet from FFHound!
D: Pick it up, rinse it off, eat it. - Steve and 4 other people
Pick the carpet/dog hair off and eat it. No time limit. - Ken Morley
B- I probably shouldn't be eating candy anyway. =) - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
B - always. - imabonehead
A or B, depending on the ground/floor/environment. Would say mostly B. - CarlC
(D) I take a picture of it and post about it. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Depends on the ground and candy, but I'm probably gonna rinse it off if I can and throw it away if rinsing isn't possible. - Andrew C (✔)

CAT HOSTING! For a week. ^_^
Dakin is like overfull so they need people to foster until next week's adoption event. Cross your fingers we end up adopting! lol - Heather

Will they have any beds or blankets that are theirs coming with? I usually try to put those, or a fresh towel, someplace a little secluded in case they need a retreat. - Jennifer Dittrich

I feel incredibly lame right now. I was invited to a dinner event by my alma mater called State of Stevens. It's an opportunity to meet the new school president as well as other alumni plus learn about the strategic plan and the latest research and achievements by students and faculty. It sounds REALLY interesting, I just don't want to go...
I don't want to be surrounded by strangers. I don't want to pretend that I belong in that world any more. My husband thinks it's good practice, and he's right, but I can't. I just can't. - Yvonne Renee
So I emailed and said I couldn't make it. Strange that I don't feel better about having made that decision. I'm just so tired and now on top of that I feel lame. =( - Yvonne Renee
I know exactly what you mean. In my opinion, if it seems really daunting, you probably know that it's too much for you. Maybe you would feel less bad (guilty? that's how I usually feel) if you gave yourself a small "make up" task to do? - Heather
Don't make yourself wrong, Yvonne. The perfect event will come when it's time. - Corinne L
Thanks, guys. I think I'll wait for a less formal event to come along. I'll need to find a way to dip my toes back in and not jump in with both feet. - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!

People on the forums are bitching about the new female Tauren being "inaccurate" and "ugly", most of the changes they think are "needed" are obviously sexist. Cows don't have dainty chins! FML
Dainty. Chins? I like my taurens to look like upright cows. Nothing more, nothing less. - Hookuh Tinypants
Tauren are the driving force that made me go Horde in the first place. I don't want them to look all pretty, I want them to look like a proper Tauren. Although I really do have a question about breasts.... because I'm pretty sure that cow anatomy is a little different than that... - Joe "The Anvil" Pierce
My toon with the most intricate backstory is my Tauren Hunter btw. It is an epic story that I'd love to tell you about, but he is very private. - Joe "The Anvil" Pierce
Chris was looking at a comment that had like 20 links to "before" and "after" pics. One of the big things was making the chin smaller and tapered. They also made the nose more cow like, complete with pics of cow noses and scetches to explain cow nose shapes. But male Tauren are perfect. - Heather

what should I get my father for his birthday? your guess is as good as mine.
what he wants is drugs I can't put through the mail. he'll be 78, I think, meaning I feel like I've gotten him every conceivable gift at some point. what else is there? EDIT: he would also love a new Camaro, which ain't happening. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
a gross of guitar picks with his name on them? not flippant, just grasping. - Big Joe Silence
Can you have his lawn spiked with a million pink plastic flamingos? - Meg VMeg
Joe, long story why, but that would actually be weird. Meg, great idea, alas not doable unless we know someone in Tallahassee. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
*mind blown* - Big Joe Silence
he loves science and nature stuff, yet he bitches about "having too much crap" so I don't know.... former Marine weightlifting champion pothead old man into sci-fi and nature stuff. you know, the usual. ;) - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
ZOMG, MEG! that is frickn awesome. sadly he is in Leon county. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
he recently got a tablet of some kind and is learning how to use it... I think he'd like a Mars Rover app or something, but I have no idea what he can or cannot manage tech-wise. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
how about a subscription to Discover Magazine? Not sexy, but kinda fun? - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Rudi, that might be the ticket. you're a genius! - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I buy my folks books for their Kindle and have them delivered throughout their birthday week. Also tickets for stuff is always a hit. - SAM
SAM, I think he has a nook actually... hmmm. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
If he has an iOS device, The Elements is a cool science app. http://www.pcmag.com/article... - Spidra Webster
This is a cool catalog for neat-o science meets Archie McPhee things: http://www.sciplus.com/ - Spidra Webster
Red ginseng with a bow on it - Louis Haygood
Does he like to build things? Does he have a backyard and perhaps a neighbor he doesn't like? http://www.barnesandnoble.com/listing... - April Russo
thanks everyone for the ideas. I went with the Discover Magazine subscription. I'm pretty sure he'll dig it. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
my elderly dad loves his Kindle - maʀtha
Leaving for Christmas ideas. lol My dad's really into Popular Science, it was a random Christmas pick that worked out. If your dad gets out and about, what about a nice walking stick? My dad uses his and collects national park badges for it. I don't know any specifically, but I've heard there are tons of cool star/space apps if he's a stargazer. - Heather
Maybe a nice new rain guage? - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Would it be possible for us to somehow send you to visit your dad? - Janet
Any ideas in the American Science & Surplus website? http://www.sciplus.com/ - bentley
I am very excited that I picked the winner! I can't ever get it right with my own fam! - RudĩϐЯaЯïan

Chris and I were looking at paint samples (killing time between dr appointments) and he pointed to the blue that he thought was his room color. I said it was a gloomier, greyer blue and pointed to the one I thought it was.
It was called Monday Blues. - Heather
