I mostly like living in California, but linguistically, I wish it wasn't "soda" territory.
I suspected "pop" was the main term used in Canada. Now I know! - Corinne L
You're also within the Democratic Republic of Coke, are you not? - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Indeed, Canada is "pop" territory throughout: - Andrew C (✔)
That table is what clued me in, Andrew. What's so odd to me is how PNW seems to default to pop, but once you get to CA it's predominantly soda. - Corinne L
I guess there must be some differences in who dominated colonizing each region? - Andrew C (✔)
Probably also whatever the regional advertising was early on. I mean, it's easy to see why "a coke" dominates in a large portion of the southern US. We're mostly "pop" here, but I hear it a lot more interchangeably lately. - Jennifer Dittrich
it's all those Californians moving up here, jenn. ;) - holly #ravingfangirl
Where are all the people who call it sody pop? Let's bring that back! - Corinne L
Huh. I'm a native Californian and I call it "soft drinks". - Spidra Webster
I would like credit for not posting my snarky comment I typed out on this thread and then deleted before posting. That is all. - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist from iPhone

(see @mappingmashups's for more details about the regional usage of 'pop' vs 'soda' vs 'coke'.)

Also, the mere fact that you call making love "pop-pop" tells me you're not ready. - Andrew C (✔)
Andrew wins the internet today. - Corinne L

what is the deal with the perfume commercials? is this a christmas season thing i just don't remember?
There are usually some, but it is wayyy dialed up this year. - Jennifer Dittrich from iPhone
There was one tonight that I couldn't even tell what they were selling. Nipples, maybe? - bentley
it is ridiculous this year. - holly #ravingfangirl
I always get a kick out of the perfume ads. Remember all those great ones that Chanel would do back in the day? Those were awesome. - Corinne L
they are pretty pretentious and dumb now. - holly #ravingfangirl

when you buy a new pair of the perfect jeans, only to discover they changed them and they are no longer perfect. #sadtrombone
you suck, Levi's. - holly #ravingfangirl
I'm pissed at Levi's today, too. I just discovered that a pair I bought just a few months ago has developed a whole from the stress where the back pocket meets the back of the jeans. Shoddy construction! - Katy S
A major annoyance. I'm still looking for new favorite jeans several years after this happened to me. - Galadriel C. from Android
it took so long to find these. *SIGH* back to the drawing board. - holly #ravingfangirl

killer bread + homemade peach honey vanilla jam = my toast is better than yours.

Like bait. - Marie
pretty much. - holly #ravingfangirl
Does it bring all the boys to the yard? - Yolanda from Android
Dear Santa, I know it's late, but if you could see about getting me some of this peach honey vanilla jam and a nice loaf of gluten-free bread in my stocking, I'd really appreciate it. I promise to share. Love, Corinne. - Corinne L

Muahahahahahaha - Pete
Do you need more than words to express your anger? - Pete
what did sir pete do this time? - Sir Shuping is just sir
ON THE LIST, SMITH. YOU ARE ON THE LIST. - holly #ravingfangirl
I would hope for nothing less - Pete
I would like to point out that right now, at 2:32 PM Eastern time on Sunday December 21, 2014, Pete has exactly 38k FF comments. And that^ was # 38,000 - ellbeecee
Splendid! - Pete
wait. Does it stop counting at some point? Shouldn't you have 38k+1 now? I am ruining my limited math vacation by thinking about this so I'm going to stop now. - ellbeecee
it doesn't update in real time, iirc - holly #ravingfangirl
*SIGH* - ellbeecee
it doesn't. i forget how far behind it runs though - Sir Shuping is just sir

What's the point of capers?
Deliciousness. - Jennifer Dittrich

Agreed on deliciousness - ellbeecee
Melly, more for me! - Jennifer Dittrich
I'm with melly. - holly #ravingfangirl from iPhone
The Muppets had a great one. - Jim: meatvalve.

Capers make me angry. - Hookuh Tinypants
Salty cut of brine for rich dishes. - Eric - ill subliminal from iPhone
I added them to homemade crackers with cream cheese tonight. They're a great way of adding salty flavor with a bit of something different. - SAM
heh. you might have spurred this post with your pic. might. ;) - holly #ravingfangirl
hehe. Didn't want to be presumptuous, but thought it was ironic if not. Capers dwell in that midland between spice and garnish, if only for lox, bagels and cream cheese they have a place in my heart. - SAM
salty AND tangy - Meg VMeg from Android
That's the word I was looking for. A bit of tang. - SAM
Love it on some smoked salmon - Rodfather

There was an ad for Girls at the beginning of one of the episodes I watched tonight. #notthetargetmarket
i mean seriously. i was just "what is this bullshit?". so not for me. - holly #ravingfangirl
(does this mean i am old? i think it does. lol) - holly #ravingfangirl
I don't think I would've been the target audience at any age. (I was the same way about Sex In The City - just not for me.) - Jennifer Dittrich

Recipe: Apple Cranberry Pie with Cream Cheese | Runner's World -
Recipe: Apple Cranberry Pie with Cream Cheese | Runner's World
"Apple pie: Like vanilla ice cream and chocolate chip cookies, it's a generic dessert most people like and few people will turn down. But to elevate your audience's reaction from "yeah, I guess I'll have a slice," to "give me some of THAT," try this recipe. The crumbly brown-sugar-and-walnut upper crust is one you could use to upgrade any apple pie. The real highlight of this recipe, though, is the cream cheese mixture that sits under the fruit. Just about everything is better with cream cheese, and when that cream cheese is whipped with brown sugar and layered onto a pie crust, it adds a richness and decadence most pies lack. Bring this to a party, and it'll be gone long before any of its just-average counterparts." - holly #ravingfangirl from Bookmarklet
i was thinking about making a cheesecake, but didn't feel up to the work. I think i like the idea of this instead. - holly #ravingfangirl
though i might do pears instead of apples? - holly #ravingfangirl

is this dog's name seriously Bay Wolf? >.>
oh wait. it's actually a cat. my question still stands. - holly #ravingfangirl
Bay O. Wolf? - Joe
Is there a great dane puppy named Hroðgar in the picture too? - Micah from FFHound(roid)!

man, say what you want about Kaiser, but their online health record system is pretty damn nice.
it's a big reason i like kaiser, but then again kaiser oakland is the jewel in the crown. - kendrak
i've been really happy with them, overall. i have all the notes from my PT visit today in there, which is great, because i always forget something, and not everything is in the printout they give you. - holly #ravingfangirl
holly #ravingfangirl
i haz a battery of new exercises for my hamstring problem. i may run again someday yet!
do you have a foam roller? - kendrak
yep, that too, and orders to actually use it. - holly #ravingfangirl

having controversial and (to some, at least) blasphemous collection development thoughts. #librarylife
"Blasphemous Librarians" - band name - Kevin Johnson
How does one put blasphemy on reserve? - Julian
I await the Blasphemous CD. When does it come out? - Katy S
or perhaps Netflix - streaming blasphemy. Oh wait - we already had the Netflix conversation.. - Kevin Johnson
I'll put it on Soundcloud so people can stream it for free. ;) - holly #ravingfangirl

i need to hide my own post. - holly #ravingfangirl

Advanced Tweets doesn't want you to know, but I met my Goodreads challenge goal last night! \o/
Grats! - Stephen Mack
i am also bumping up my goal next year because i am going to start including all the cookbooks I read. Artificial inflation FTW! ;) - holly #ravingfangirl

post office achieved in under 10 minutes. I WIN TODAY.
holy crap that is a great super power to have - Steve C Team Marina
I managed that too. It was awesome (granted, I was at our campus post office branch, and finals are done, so yeah, you win more) - ellbeecee
the key is going right when it opens and being first for the self-service machine. :) - holly #ravingfangirl
Wow. And I thought I did good earlier this week at 20 minutes. Course, that was at 3 in the afternoon and in the main line. So still not too shabby. - Kirsten
I wish there were more self-service machines in my area. - Corinne L
we have them at all the offices here. - holly #ravingfangirl
Maybe this is yet another reason why Sacramento wants so much to be like Portland. ;-) - Corinne L

I find it really hard to take Iyanla Vanzant seriously.

that last RT was a promoted tweet. fine, you win, twitter.
heh. and of course, it didn't get pulled in by AT. - holly #ravingfangirl
which rt? i don't see it in my twitter timeline at all - Sir Shuping is just sir
interesting! it's a pic from Lee Pace with Orlando Bloom and Evangeline Lilly. an elfie! if someone else in your timeline had RTed it recently it wouldn't show again though. - holly #ravingfangirl
if it was i missed it...but i've noticed that adblock doesn't show the promoted tweets, i wonder if that's a cause? if i look at your timeline though i see it. - Sir Shuping is just sir
ah, yeah, if adblock is blocking them, then you probably won't see it. - holly #ravingfangirl

Pop Goes on Hiatus: In a Quiet Year, Music Moves Ever Closer to the Margins « -
"According to a story that ran last month in The Atlantic, the top 1 percent of solo artists and bands now earn 77 percent of the revenue from recorded music. On the radio, still the most effective way to break artists and songs with the pop audience, the 10 most popular songs are played twice as much as they were a decade ago. This naturally translates to better sales for those songs — the top 10 tracks now account for 82 percent more of the digital sales market than they did back in the mid-’00s. There is more music than there has ever been, but pop continues to shrink and rely more heavily on big names and overplayed songs to pump up the juice." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
"But while streaming services keep promising us discovery, pop listeners keep wanting what’s already familiar. " <-- wow, I feel like by now 75% or more of my Spotify listening (which is most of what I listen to at work) is discovery-based, not familiarity based. I initially seeded it with a lot of stuff I already like to get the recommendation engine up to speed, of course. - Andrew C (✔)
i use it to discover/try out a lot of music before i buy it too. - holly #ravingfangirl
"Does the cat have resting bitch face?"
my cat totally did. :) - holly #ravingfangirl
My old cat Shadow totally did. Everyone thought she was crabby, but that was just her resting face. - Jennifer Dittrich
