"Jonah Hill wanted to eat a real goldfish because he wanted everything to be real. Everyone was working so hard on this movie that he didn't want to be the person who wasn't. Obviously, regulations didn't allow it. They had a real goldfish and three goldfish handlers/wranglers on set. Hill could..."
"... keep the goldfish in his mouth for three seconds at a time and then they had to put it back in water unharmed." http://www.imdb.com/title... - Micah from FFHound(roid)!

I know there's some overlap between these two rooms, so I thought I'd mention an ebook I bought last night: Good Housekeeping for the Chronically Fagged (http://amzn.to/1ucknrA). It's a really informal book, only about 40 pages, but I've found a number of things in there that have made me think. A few quotes:
"A routine is scheduled method for accomplishing tasks, in a particular order, at particular times. A routine, therefore, has objectives, priorities, a schedule, and means for seeing it through. A routine is not inflexible, but neither is it made to be broken or bent unnecessarily...For persons with compromised health, an orderly routine for sustaining a comfortable habitat and a clear conscience that finances are in order, is simply not optional. Disorder, whether it be clutter or unpaid bills, is stressful, and stress aggravates chronic illness." - Laura
"For those of us with chronic pain and fatigue, extended social time, or any time away from home, even to be with friends we dearly love, may increase our stress, pain, and fatigue...So it's important for us to enjoy being home. And if we enjoy being home, we should aspire to care for our home in a way that repays us with an environment that nurtures us and promotes our well-being." - Laura
"Things may become clutter if they are habitually out of context." - Laura
Thanks for posting. One of my issues is I don't have designated places for lots of stuff (gel I haven't used in 6 months but don't want to throw away, for example). - YvonneM
oh, that second quote, esp the last line is really really poignant. - Lnorigb

I like the animated Anastasia, but it’s got some sketchy history going on.
i still can't believe i let myself get dragged to see that at the cinema. - Big Joe Silence
Like I said, I like it a lot. I think it's one of the better non-Disney/non-Pixar animated movies. But it was jarring to hear the opening voiceover be all "yay thoughtless opulence!" - Jandy

I'm going to guess there are a lot of headline-writers who don't understand why that's offensive. And yet, oddly enough, almost no newspaper headlined "Father of two elected President" in 2008. Wonder why that is? - Walt Crawford
To father a child takes but a moment. To mother one takes a lifetime. I see such headlines (without context) as a positive thing. Maybe that's just me? - Slippy
But that's also reductive of good fathering, though. In the best light, in a lede like this, mentioning she's a mother seems irrelevant. - Victor Ganata
It's just not appropriate, and it isn't positive. By that reasoning, the childless woman is less qualified to lead the BBC? No. For male candidates, you'd see something along the lines of, "Ex-CEO of The Financial Times Group" or "HSBC Director" instead, which would be both informative and correct. Heck, the way this is written, they have to shoe-horn that information into the first paragraph, and her name isn't even mentioned until the second. - Jennifer Dittrich
Sorry, Slippy, but I can't go along with you on this one. The story isn't about the woman having three children; it's about her being likely to be the BBC's leader--and for that, the headline is inappropriate (Jennifer offers a good quick summary as to why). - Walt Crawford
I understand, and I stand corrected. Eloquently put by all three of you. - Slippy
*high fives all around* - Jennifer Dittrich
Wait, what? Daenarys Stormborn has taken over the BBC? I'm so confused. I thought she was still running Meereen. - Stephen Mack from iPhone

Random fact: a baby's soft spot isn't all that fragile. Not that I recommend inflicting head trauma on infants to test how durable it is, but just touching it won't cause brain damage.

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
