Holly's favorite Anna
When cooking ramen noodles on the stovetop takes far too long...
2014-09-21 12.38.22.jpg
Note: it costs $4.99, which seems pretty steep for appealing to the ramen crowd. - Holly's favorite Anna
I saw that in my store and looked at it. As I recall, it said it takes 5 minutes to cook the ramen. Since cooking time in boiling water is 3 minutes, I'm not sure how they are claiming it cooks the noodles in half the time. - Laura
You have to get the water to a boil, which can take a few minutes. Still... - Walt Crawford
I've heard weirdly positive things about it. - Heather

If you're broke when it comes around next year, contact them to volunteer. You won't be able to do just as you please, but you will get some time where you don't have to work and you can get in for free. Just about any con needs a lot of volunteers to run. - Spidra Webster
Is this for Rose City? - joey
Joey, yup. I really wanted to go today. - Joe "The Anvil" Pierce from Android
Joe, next year let me know...the organisers overlap with ECCC and I can help hook you up with them :) - joey

Adventures in pie making.
I don't think I've been this relaxed making pie since the first few times I did it. Maybe baking alone with the radio is key. - Heather
Bunny will eat all the apple peels you give her. And your fingers if they smell like apple. - Heather
Disposable tins are waaaaaay shallower than my pie plate. Much spillage. So smoke. Wow burn-y-ness! - Heather
I swear this smoke alarm is a bastard. It went off, Chris took the batteries out and we aired out the house. It's chirping. He puts the batteries back in.... It's still chirping! *strangles smoke alarm. - Heather
I can't cook much, but damn can I bake a pie. - Heather

Not that I saw Doctor Who's "Blink" episode, but what about staggered blinking, one eye at a time? Seems like that would suffice.
It's been done. (I tried it and it makes me blink both eyes reflexively.) - Heather
I tried this out for a good minute or two before tweeting this and I felt relatively confident in my staggered-blinking abilities. - Andrew C (✔)
Possibly related, I did manage to train myself to do the one-eyebrow-raised thing as a kid. Though I only learned with my right eyebrow. - Andrew C (✔)

Science has a sexual assault problem via @nytopinion
Not to demean this at all, but is there a profession or social group that doesn't have a sexual assault problem? It doesn't seem that way. - Heather
My thought, too. But I think many scientists like to think they're above this. - Spidra Webster

I gotta admit, being an American with Filipino ancestry does bias me towards supporting independence in (almost) all cases.
The same is true of my Irish Catholic ancestry. - John (bird whisperer)
I'm an Anglo Canadian, so I default towards skepticism at best. - Andrew C (✔)
Since I discovered Finland wasn't a country until after my great grandparents left, I've been a big supporter of independence too. (Don't tell anyone my relatives used to be Swedish!) - Heather
If Scotland does end up voting for independence, I seriously doubt it will be in anywhere near as terrible shape as the Philippines was when the U.S. finally granted it independence after it had been ravaged by WWII, with Manila and its major industries in ruins. - Victor Ganata

I am so sick and tired of this particular argument against increasing minimum wage:
"If one person works hard in school and studies hard, they should be getting an A. However, if another student does not and skips the final exam, they deserve an F. Continuing that analogy is that in the "everyone deserves a living wage" world both individuals would get a C, because that is fair. What sense does that make." - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
This is such a fallacy. The people that are making less than a livable wage are the ones working their butts off, while the ones raking in billions of dollars are rarely doing more than sitting around, playing golf, hanging out on their yachts, and glad-handing. If we were really to "continue the analogy", the assembly-line workers would be the ones getting the "A" in salary, while the executives would be getting C's or D's, at least. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
I'm not necessarily saying that there aren't valid arguments (and completely ridiculous arguments) on both sides of this issue; I'm just really tired of hearing that particular one. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE from WinForFeed
The problem with the C conclusion is it misunderstands what the minimum wage is. It has nothing to do with the grades you get, it's about making sure that every student at the very least has access to a pencil and a desk so they don't have to resort to writing words on a wall behind the toilets with a stick dipped in blood. - Johnny
Man I wish I could "like" Johnny's comment. - Heather
The one I am tired of hearing is "The minimum wage was never intended to be a living wage. Those jobs are intended for young people still living at home. You shouldn't still be working a minimum wage job by the time you are grown. If you are, then it's because you are too lazy/too stupid/not ambitious enough/[insert other dumb reason] and you deserve the low wages that you get." And the... more... - April Russo
Dunno if I feel like chasing my history for the link, and it might not be true anyway - but somewhere in Washington - the state - the minimum wage was raised to $15. I really think the results of that as described are TOO good to be true - but they describe a restaurant owner predicting layoffs and depression. Instead, the story said he had to hire twice as many people and open several... more... - Mary B: #TeamMonique

What's your favorite energy drink? AMP, NOS, Bawls, Red Bull, Monster, Rockstar? Something I haven't thought about? I'm tired of coffee for alertness on my 16 hours shifts on the weekend. I'm looking for suggestions. :)
Water. - Anika
Golazo - only one that doesn't make me fidgety or crash later. - Jennifer Dittrich from FFHound!
Yes. - LB: Water Witch from Android
Iced tea - Heather
NOS, Rockstar Recover (yellow), Rockstar Zero (white/silver, tastes like Squirt), Redbull, Starbucks Refresher. - imabonehead from Android
Gurrnaid. - Eric Logan from FFHound!
Rockstar Zero is tasty, and I've enjoyed the flavors of Mt. Dew Kickstart I've tried. Red Bull is effective, but I don't think it tastes as good as the others. I've had some of the Monster flavors and liked them, but I don't know which ones. - LB: Water Witch from Android
Rock*star sugar free isn't too bad. - Janet from FFHound!
I like Starbucks Refreshers - lime is my favorite. Avoid the orange flavor. - Corinne L
Iced tea, no sugar or lemon. I go through about a gallon of it each day. My daughter likes Red Bull, mixed with mango nectar to make it taste better. - April Russo
Coffee. - Jenny H. from Android
Pepsi Max Kick. - Melly - #TeamMarina
If you choose to do a lot of iced tea or dark colored may place yourself at risk for kidney stones. - Janet
I don't do anything but coffee & water, so I can't help. I know the ex-wife likes Starbucks Refreshers and will drink NOS if she can't find those. If you really want an energy drink, you might also want to consider 5-Hour Energy (didn't see that in your list). - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Any able to explain this articles calculations? It's about birth control failure likelihood over time and it just doesn't seem right to me.

Ugh, iPad linking sucks :( - Heather
The older I get the more obsessed with my Finn heritage I get. Is that a thing?
You know, I swear it is. I've been way more interested in some of our family traditions now than I was as a kid. Part of that is tied to family actually talking about it, but some of it just realizing as I get older that I wish I knew a bit more. - Jennifer Dittrich
My current thing is wanting to learn to play the Kantele. It's a string instrument with 5-38 strings (I think I'd stick with 5 strings). So pretty: - Heather
Same with me... I've been steadily getting closer to the German side of my heritage. Very fulfilling, even if there are dark sides to it. - Brent Schaus
Is it still "I've been hacked" if your friend grabs your unlocked phone and posts a stupid status update on Facebook? It's not RIGHT but by using the word "Hacked", does that downplay the seriousness of recent privacy violations (which are really cracks)? Sounds closer to pranked. I don't know.
We need a better ontology of online dickery - Pete : Team Marina from FFHound(roid)!
It sounds like they're trying to say hijacked and not quite getting it right. - Katy S
Pranced sounds right to me. In WoW I've seen some people have that kind of thing happen when they afk and a sibling starts posting. - Heather
We call it "cheesing" as in "I just cheesed Johnny". - Louis Gray
Who moved my cheese? - Yvonne Renee
When people do that on Twitter (usually kids posting for their parents or siblings pranking siblings), I call it "tweetnapped". - Spidra Webster

You know how much time and planning could be avoided if we didn't have to wash ourselves regularly? #teamnoshower.... only #notreally

It's one of the things I miss most about short hair -- doesn't take much to clean up, and I didn't spend any time drying or styling it. - Holly's favorite Anna
Sometimes before I go for volunteering I skip the shower and Chris does my hair in the kitchen sink. - Heather
HALP! I have a mom guilt situation.
My mom called yesterday to tell me the job I had previously with her is basically back. It's an as needed thing. She called it an internship, but assured me I would get paid at the end of the call. - Heather
The problem is, Chris would have to drive me 45mins on Monday, I would stay at my parents that night, work Tuesday too, and my mom would drive me back out here (and just over an hour home). - Heather
I hated the job (cold calling), it's a commitment for both me and Chris, it's going to cost gas money, and I'm not happy with my mom because of how she's been talking to me about getting a job. - Heather
The only pro is that I would get paid, probably. - Heather
Thoughts? - Heather
my initial response: do what's best for you and Chris FIRST. everything else is secondary. i think your first responsibility is to the pair of you, not your mom. - Big Joe Silence
Basically, if there's no written guarantee of a paycheck, and it requires an outlay of funds from you, then I'd give that the big thumbs down. Even if pay is guaranteed, if it doesn't significantly cover your expenses (and time commitment,) also a no. - Jennifer Dittrich
Honestly the stress built in in all that looks to exceed the monetary gains unless your mom's got deep pockets. - Steve C Team Marina
What everyone else said. There ain't nothing like mom guilt, but this is a perfect opportunity to establish some boundaries. - Corinne L
I love you guys, seriously. I haven't had any positive thoughts towards this and I feel a lot better knowing I'm not just coming off as a petulant brat. Standing up to my mom for the way she talks to me about getting a job is a long time coming, so it wont be easy. I really hope it makes future conversations smoother though. - Heather
Girl, I was there many, many times with my mom. It took a long time for her to stop haranguing me about jobs - and even when I would be doing well, she'd be full of ideas about where I could work or who might need a good writer. Work on keeping your voice level when discussing job stuff and don't hesitate to hang up if she gets nasty (prefacing it with something like "This isn't up for discussion, mom, I love you, hanging up now"). Good luck! - Corinne L

Double standard: We condemn Ray Rice; but what about Mayweather? | -
Double standard: We condemn Ray Rice; but what about Mayweather? |
Here are two star athletes embroiled in the same issue: domestic violence. One plays football. Or played football, anyway. A video released this week shows him striking his then-fiancée, now-wife, in an elevator, knocking her unconscious. It’s impossible to watch the footage and not feel sick to your stomach. The other is a boxer. He has been accused of domestic violence on multiple occasions, including recently. He has gone to jail for assaulting one mother of his children, the charge reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor. As recently as Tuesday, speaking specifically about the other athlete’s video, he told reporters, “I think there’s a lot of worse things that go on in other people’s households, also. It’s just not caught on video, if that’s safe to say.” It’s not. Not safe. Not smart. Not humane. It’s impossible to hear that and not feel sick to your stomach. The implication is enormous: Other men beat their wives worse, so what’s a woman in an elevator knocked out cold … The... more... - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
"In a Washington Post story published this week, Mayweather said, “Things happen. Malcolm X been to jail; Martin Luther King been to jail. The list goes on and on. You live and you learn. But I think the main thing, I think people should just learn from the mistakes that are made. And I’m not saying that when I went to jail it was a mistake. But things happen and you live and you learn.” I don’t know where to even start with that. I mean, really?" - Steve C Team Marina
I don't think there's a double standard for the most part. The same people who think Rice should be arrested for his abuse think that Mayweather is just the same. In my Twitter TL, most everyone was saying that Mayweather should shut up. These are the same people who won't support Chris Brown or R. Kelly. Of course, these people are mostly black women. Other people are willing to... more... - Anika
I think there's a media double standard as I actually hadn't heard of Mayweather stuff till now as I don't pay attention to boxers or boxing at all but I'm guessing even non-football fans have heard of the Ray Rice stuff. If ESPN covered the Mayweather stuff extensively I would have known more since I do watch a lot of sports shows. - Steve C Team Marina
I'm not a boxing fan and I couldn't avoid the Mayweather stuff. It was all over my Twitter TL and just around town people were talking about it. - Anika
I saw the Mayweather story all over some of my timelines, but it was mostly among people I'd expect to see sharing news about domestic violence, rather than news about sports stars themselves. With Rice, I see it cropping up in both places. - Jennifer Dittrich
The Ray Rice story is a bigger story than ever because they tried to cover it up. - Eric Logan
I agree with Steve, we don't hear about things equally. I had no idea Mayweather was so horrible. I guess I don't dtay connected enough to know about much other than the top stories. - Heather
I don't know how to keep going right now.
I'm ok but I'm scared. Not going to hurt myself, don't worry please. Just need to let this out somewhere. - Lo

I was just thinking I was finding my way out of this long depression/trying to figure things out period and after 9 months of unemployment I had a lead on a job handling desserts for a new restaurant.

Last week I had some really bad fights with secondary, struggling that even trying to use every tool in my box, and some new ones, but it's still going badly. I send him an email asking that he actually attend couples therapy with me, and went to the park to swing for a while. Healthy coping skills & stuff. - Lo from Android
I don't know how but I fell off the swing, broke my left arm and wrist and fractured four vertebrae. I'm in a brace for three months. probably can't do the restaurant job. Don't know how long before I will be able to earn money. I don't even know if I'll be able to dance again. The pain is unreal.

It's hard because the feelings are much stronger now, but the coping skills I have been learning are sometimes useless. I can't take deep breaths or go running, really get any exercise at all, so calming down takes a fucking hour. I can't share my feelings as freely with husband for fear of breaking his spirit.

Next time you see a doc, bring the form for a disability placard. You can get a temporary one and you have as much reason to need one as someone who's got a leg in a cast. I can imagine that it affects your stamina and how far you can walk. If you get it, it can help a little financially with paying for any meters. Even if you don't own a car, the placard is assigned to you. That is, you can use it with any car you're being ferried in. - Spidra Webster
If your household income qualifies, definitely apply for any and all help you can get with food, utilities and things that may not be healthcare. If you can get help with overall expenses, it may help the healthcare costs cut less deeply. (It's depressing to me how many of these programs are for only for mothers. It's like if you don't breed, you don't matter. But try to ignore that and use what you can. Like low income utility assistance.) - Spidra Webster
Sorry to be responding in a "fixit" way if you just wanted to vent. I do really get how depressing it is to be in pain all the time. - Spidra Webster
That is a lot for anyone to take in Lo, so far I haven't heard you express any feeling that isn't completely understandable under those circumstances. I don't have any magic answers for you but hope if you just hang in there especially through the physical healing some peace will come. - Steve C Team Marina
thanks folks :) - Lo from Android
*hugs* That is a seriously sucky string of events. Writing helps me get through emotions that I feel like I can't talk to people about. Sometimes I write like I'm talking to someone I'm having trouble communicating with or make up a character to be my avatar and put them in dire straights so I can get a kind of relief from what I'm going through. I know you said you're typing one handed, you could scribble it out in pencil? Good luck with the next appointments and if you need more venting, go right ahead! - Heather

holy crap - Steve C Team Marina
Ugh. I know it's bad wherever it happens, but being in MA is worse to me. I want to go there and chew them out. - Heather
So thankful I wasn't alone in the KICU today, seeing as I only managed to get 3 kittens done in the time she did 11. Arrived late, emergency bathroom break, and sitting in a dark room for a while to combat dizziness/nausea added up to starting a half hour late.
Seriously though, I was just barely useful today. I hope I'm better tomorrow. - Heather

Your all-time favourite soup:
I has a butternut squash soup this one time—it put me over the top. So, squash. - Micah

Clam chowder as well... or fish. - Ken Morley

Split peas. - Wicked Bat Catcher from iPhone

I can't decide. I kind of just love soup. (though I will shank a bitch for some avgolemono most days) - Hookuh Tinypants
Double tomato soup. (reg tomatoes and sun-dried) - Corinne L
Probably some variant of squash soup. But I like a lot of other soups, too. - John (bird whisperer)
Crab Bisque, chili then beef stew. - SAM

Clam chowdah +1 - Stephen Mack
this rosemary farro garbanzo thing I make is heavenly. I never turn down cream of asparagus. But I do just love soup. - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Sun-dried tomato with walnut. - LB: Water Witch from Android
French onion. - Katy S
Cream of Mushroom or New England Clam Chowder. - April Russo
Manhattan clam chowder, I guess. It's the default soup at White Spot, an iconic BC chain. - Andrew C (✔)
New England Clam Chowder most of the time; not necessarily because it's the greatest soup I've ever had, but because it's usually the most consistently good. My favorite kind of soup is probably actually either beef & barley or good old chicken noodle. Unfortunately, it's just as often that I find those that I don't like as it is that I find good ones. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Clam chowdah or lobster bisque. - Kristin
My Mum's pea & ham. - Melly - #TeamMarina
French Onion if I'm eating out. Kale, sausage, & potato (like the one at Olive Garden) if I'm cooking. - Lisa L. Seifert from iPhone
Broccoli and cheddar. Followed very closely by clam chowder. - Heather

So all the warnings I gave a work colleague about allowing her 12 year old daughter to have an Instagram/Snapchat/Kik account have now come back as her complaining about Instagram/Snapchat/Kik.
Not sure whether to "like" this or not; depends on what kinds of warnings you gave her, and what the ramifications have been. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Basically all the warnings I gave about ducky-face, sexully suggestive poses, random follwers, no record of Snapchats, peer pressure, boys etc. I tried to lay out how this will go and she still let her daughter do it... and now complains about those exact things like "HOW DID THIS HAPPEN??!?" - Johnny
Ugh. I watched my niece go down the path of mom and dad not monitoring her FB. It's all very not good. - Heather
No bueno. - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
