I felt both my babies moving from around 16 weeks, and there's no way I could have gone as long as her without figuring it out, It was either that or aliens. - Melly - #TeamMarina

Josiah's teacher told me this morning he has been cheeky in class this week and reallllly pushing it. At first he tried to deny it, then he seemed to think it was awfully funny.
So I just told him that since he has been wasting so much of Miss Kerr's time, Josh and I were going to waste some of his time; and that once he finished his homework, he had to write out two pages of "I must not be cheeky at school". - Melly - #TeamMarina
He doesn't think it's funny anymore. - Melly - #TeamMarina
He has shut himself in his room (he didn't slam the door, he didn't dare!). I'm happy for him to stay there ;o) - Melly - #TeamMarina
He's only just finishing the lines now. - Melly - #TeamMarina
What a great way to handle this!! - Janet
He tried to rail against such a cruel punishment. "I don't want to do it and I'm not going to." This protest was met with silence. It then became "I don't want to do it", to which I replied "I know". He then asked if he could do the writing whilst watching tv. I said "No, you'll get it over with quicker if you give it your full attention." - Melly - #TeamMarina
I ignored the sighs, and grunts, and cross looks. He did the lines. - Melly - #TeamMarina
He has been told that he will receive the same punishment with double the lines for the next infraction ;o) - Melly - #TeamMarina
Good punishment, Melly. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
Well played. - vicster: full-bodied
I just love that y'all use the word "cheeky"! - Laura Norvig
I informed his teacher of the punishment. She approved. - Melly - #TeamMarina

So here. Be nice to people in general, because it’s the right thing to do, but if you can’t at least do that then please don’t be an asshole when someone tells you that they have Lupus or Celiac or Fibromyalgia or any of the other things that we live with every day that you can’t see on the surface.

#nanowrimo Pre-Nov 1 nano novel musing or it's only October 22 which story idea do I like better. The story I want to tell is modern day magic mixed with coming of age in suburbia. One idea is of course our young protagonist trained by modern day wizard. I have a "meets cute" so it starts nicely BUT of course the older wiser mentor
Can sorta kinda take over story from our young hero. Plus of course rules are boring - WarLord
Second idea, the protagonist finds a Grimoire and teaches himself to be wizard. This has advantages of more mistakes and hapless experiments as he works his "painful" way into competence. Plus maybe nice conflicts with wizards and any wizard ruling council as he blunders about. I kinda like "B" better BUT - WarLord
The Grimoire the wizard cook book is essential and how I get that book into his hands is driving me nuts. I'm thinking a book sale maybe a box of books for $10- $20 bucks but again how to make the Grimoire be ignored by all until Dylan finds it??? - WarLord
I like the idea of stumbling on a book. Dylan could be cleaning someone's attic/basement/garage and find it, the person doesn't know what it is so they let him keep it. Could be at a book sale, tucked away behind some other things, maybe planted there for him to find? Box lot at an auction that he sees something he wants and the book is at the bottom with a few others. The cover could be grimy and indistinct, which is why people ignore it. - Heather
^ that one's easy. It looks like an ordinary book to everyone except that kid. He has the "gift" so he can read it. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
I thought about "ordinary book" thing... I like cleaning out the trash.... Dylan does good deed adventure ensues. I thought about box of books also containing enclosed book stand that concealed this book... I dunno taking out the trash maybe with a side of ordinary looking book - WarLord
Of course maybe I need to expand my "palette of colors" I mean kid discovers magic, adventures ensue - where have we read that before? If I go with "taking out the trash" literally anyone could discover the book. An adult, not necessarily an orphan or sullen loner etc etc That makes an accidental wizard a very different story - WarLord

Funny how the people who keep saying voting is a waste of time only talk about how all the candidates and parties are the same. They never mention the fact that you're also voting on state, county, and city measures that will totally affect your life in very concrete ways.
That's because they're simple-minded. It's too hard for them to think that much. - Anika
Plus of course the parties and candidates are NOT the same but hey simple minded - WarLord
I assume they've never voted and have no idea that there are things like ballot questions. - Heather
People who "choose" not to vote come up with the most remarkable reasons. And it's SOOOOOO difficult to register and vote (esp. in states with permanent absentee ballots, like California). Thus us aged and, unfortunately, them extremists take over the gummint because we'll take the time to be part of it. - Walt Crawford

Jennifer Garner's Passionate Speech on Sexism in Hollywood: Ben Affleck Is Only Asked About His Co-Star's ''Tits''
""The fact that there even needs to be a Women in Hollywood event is a little bit sad," gorgeous Garner said during the annual event at the Four Seasons hotel in Beverly Hills. "I mean, the men in Hollywood event is every day—it's called Hollywood. Fifty-one percent of the population should not have to have to schedule a special event to celebrate the fact that in an art that tells the story of what it means to be human and alive, we get to play a part."" - Eric - It's My Thing from Bookmarklet
You'd think that the editor would have tripped over that "gorgeous Garner" the same way I did. I mean, way to undercut the quote. - Steele Lawman
I guess their idea is that it's only sour grapes if women who aren't gorgeous say such things... - Spidra Webster

This is PERFECT “Why #Gamergaters Piss Me The F*** Off” by @ChrisWarcraft https://medium.com/@ChrisW... Chris Kluwe speaks truth to idiots #ftw
Like this: "... (#Gamergate, for those unaware, is what happened a bit over a month ago, where an angry neckbeard posted demonstrably false allegations about his ex-girlfriend, claiming she slept with video game site reviewers for better scores for her games (again, demonstrably false), and then a whole bunch of other angry neckbeards on the Internet went full Denis Dyack and spitfrothed themselves into national attention by making an array of threats on numerous female game developers, including ones about their death, tried to hide behind a shield of “it’s about journalistic ethics because they said gamers are dead,” and generally proved why the Internet needs to be burned to the ground and the ashes salted. If you’re curious about the details, here’s a good background link.) ..." - WarLord
Or this "... You slopebrowed weaseldicks with zero reading comprehension and even less critical thinking skills who think an article claiming “Gamers are dead” is something bad? Fuck me sideways with a sandblaster. It’s like all you can do is look at this collection of words, scratch yourself uneasily, and then run off to look for grubs. Your reaction (and I am not making this up,... more... - WarLord
This is the best thing I've ever read. AMAZING! - Heather
THIS 1000x. "In fact, #Gamergaters, if your concern really was ethics, the very first thing you would be saying about this whole mess is, “Holy shit, get these fucking misogynistic creeps away from us. Let’s find a different hashtag to assemble under RIGHT FUCKING NOW.” You’d be doing everything in your power to make sure the legitimate cause you’re concerned about wasn’t hijacked or used as a shield by those with no other agenda than to make women and minorities afraid, simply because they can." - rönin

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

Ruth Bader Ginsburg puts her finger on the goal of Texas' voter ID law: racism http://fw.to/wKJnzdE
"Texas has been found in violation of the Voting Rights Act in every redistricting cycle from and after 1970," she wrote. She cited "the state's long history of official discrimination in voting, the statewide existence of racially polarized voting, the incidence of overtly racial political campaigns, the disproportionate lack of minority voting officials, and the failure of elected officials to respond to the concerns of minority voters." - WarLord

Can we officially call this terrorism? Because I am calling it that. Because it’s exactly what this is and what it has been from the beginning. This organized, dedicated, on-going, online harassment is terrorism directed at women in an attempt to silence them. And when women don’t shut-up, the threats escalate. Will law enforcement please start... - http://silas216.tumblr.com/post...
