I find it really hard to take Iyanla Vanzant seriously.
Is that the Frozen singer? - Steve C Team Marina

that salad was, uh, bacon-y.
delicious, but... - holly #ravingfangirl

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
holly #ravingfangirl
i have a lot of feelings about this book request that earwormed me with "The Lion Sleeps Tonight". A LOT OF FEELINGS.
What is the book? - Katy S
I have a soft spot in my brain for that song, because we used to play it in the marching band. - Brian Johns
Well, that title isn't even subtle about trying to earworm folks. - Katy S

Lemon meringue French toast. WELP.
Lemon meringue French toast. WELP.
^^ (heard that in Susan Sarandon's voice) - Julian
i was a little iffy because i am not a meringue fan, but the waiter convinced me. smartest decision of the day so far. - holly #ravingfangirl
Oh god I need this. NEED. - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed
Yes please. - laura x from iPhone
So is this anywhere near wherever ACRL is being held? - Meg VMeg
it's over here in Vancouver, so... not exactly. :) - holly #ravingfangirl
Oh good, another reason for me to be on the fence about going :) - Meg VMeg
Yum! - Tamara J. B.
Shut up and take my money! - Great Scott!
Half hour before I arrived to go to work: Two stabbed near Rockville Metro station via @WTOP
Whoa. That's unusual activity for that neighborhood, isn't it? Or has that part of Rockville changed a lot? - Corinne L
No, it's fairly unusual, tho dumb stuff happens there from time to time. There were cops there when I arrived and for some reason a helicopter hovering over the station, but I think they were finishing up their business at that point. - Zamms
Still unsettling. Glad the cops were responsive. - Corinne L

made one batch of cookie dough to start the Great Holiday Baking. think i maybe should have mixed them a while longer in the food processor, but hopefully they will firm up while chilling.
this was nearly my big disaster of the day. somehow i managed to save them. today is magical. - holly #ravingfangirl
Hurray for magic cookies! - Jennifer Dittrich from iPhone
Magic cookies? Is that, like, special cookies? #askingforafriend - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
holly #ravingfangirl
today i baked 5 dozen cookies, beef and farro soup, and cranberry cake. and i didn't tweet one picture of them.
flickr is another story... ;) - holly #ravingfangirl
holly #ravingfangirl
Beef-and-Farro Soup Recipe - Hugh Acheson | Food & Wine -
Just the title of this recipe makes me happy. - Hookuh Tinypants
it sounded really interesting and has things i don't normally cook with, so it seemed like a good one to save. :) - holly #ravingfangirl
This sounds like something you make on a really blustery winter day and then hunker down wrapped in a big ol' fleece blanket and eat while watching made-for-TV Christmas films starring Kenny Rogers. - Hookuh Tinypants
I need to get out more... - Hookuh Tinypants
THIS IS SUPER DELICIOUS - holly #ravingfangirl
This sounds like something I would ruin. - Meg VMeg
(by which i mean, if i didn't ruin it, you should be okay.) - holly #ravingfangirl
Nah, I'd have the wrong cut of beef, then cook it too much or too little, then the farro would be over- or undercooked, then...LEEKS. I ruin leeks 100% of the time. I'm glad it was good for you! - Meg VMeg
it was the farro that nearly did me in. apparently it's not too easy to screw up. - holly #ravingfangirl
What? Why am I always stuck making conversation at holiday parties with people who tell ghost stories?
*makes ghost noises at merry* - holly #ravingfangirl

Dysfunctional Holiday Porter @DirtyHandsBrew
Dysfunctional Holiday Porter @DirtyHandsBrew
so delicious. - holly #ravingfangirl from iPhone
And I rarely say that about a beer. - holly #ravingfangirl from iPhone
it was like a porter crossed with an Andes mint, which i never would have thought would taste good. - holly #ravingfangirl
I had one like that recently! It was a peppermint porter, oddly refreshing with a hint of toothpaste. - Hedgehog
holly #ravingfangirl
what brand of crack does is contain? :) - Bash
the salty-sweet and deliciously bad for you kind! - holly #ravingfangirl
Oh god you bought that Natural Harvest cookbook, didn't you. - Hookuh Tinypants
no, this is an actual momofuku milk bar crack pie. - holly #ravingfangirl

I think we may have to change Old Lady Kramer's name to Trixie because she can fake swallowing a pill like nobody's business.
Uh oh. - Katy S
srsly. every single time we have to go back in a while later and check for pills. she's a sneaky one. guess she's learned a thing or two these almost-21 years. ;) - holly #ravingfangirl
LIBRARIANS ARE CRAZY. (I think I mean that affectionately.)
sometimes yes, sometimes not so much. - holly #ravingfangirl
holly #ravingfangirl
it's so weird how you can look completely different when a photo is flipped.
Oh, yeah. That always weirds me out. - Jennifer Dittrich
notice it all the time now with the front-facing camera on my phone. I am constantly flipping pics to how they looked when i took the damn thing. :) - holly #ravingfangirl
I frequently obsess about how one of my eyes is slightly lower than the other. - Andrew C (✔)

this sweater is full-on Brit. So much that it's actually a jumper. From @Bodenclothing of course.

Their stuff is so great! - holly #ravingfangirl from iPhone
This is bacon. Mixed with maple syrup. For hot dogs. Topped with mac & cheese. Period.

that sounds kinda gross. - kendrak
It sounds both disgusting amd intriguing. - Kirsten from Android
I am fervently glad to be vegetarian in this exact moment. - RepoRat
It is all very very good. - Zamms from iPhone
i trust you... but this is working my brain over. - kendrak
I am repelled and yet totally craving this now. - Hookuh Tinypants
It sounds wonderful and like something I should never eat. Thus, I want some NOW. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I was with you until Mac and cheese. That I'll have on the side - Christina Pikas from iPhone
The Frederick MD baseball team does this, but with crab mac and cheese. - Zamms from iPhone

today at work i wore a single glove, like an arthritic Michael Jackson.
this amused me way too much. - holly #ravingfangirl
also, i think some health and wellness twitter acct just followed me because i tweeted the word arthritic. LOLOL - holly #ravingfangirl
"Honestly, if a group of librarians haven't found it yet, I have little hope... "
OMG THAT IS AWESOME. - holly #ravingfangirl
seriously, this is insane. I CAN SEE IT IN MY HEAD TOO - holly #ravingfangirl
I scrolled all the way down to see if it's the one I think it is, and the last post (as of now) has the same answer I had: Too Close for Comfort. I wonder if we're right. - bentley
Three's Company? - maʀtha
oh, I see they already tried that - maʀtha
I can see it in my head, too, but none of the shows that are currently top contenders were ones that I watched regularly. My money is on You Can't Do That On Television. - Catherine Pellegrino
and i never really watched that one, so... this is all so so so very fascinating and maddening. - holly #ravingfangirl
I just found a bit of text about an episode of Home Improvement with the gag (search page for Male Gaze) - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Oh dear lord, I read that whoooole linked mefi and I somehow didn't fall down the Perfect Strangers rabbit hole. I think Observation: Three's Company is the Memento of that thread. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
I have seen maybe 3 of the shows mentioned, but God, I love that thread just for the sheer intensity of our collective media unconscious. - laura x from iPhone

"Public schools will be closed in San Francisco, Marin County and Oakland Thursday because of the big storm expected to push through the Bay Area beginning Wednesday night, district officials said.

I got Jenkins! The Librarians Character Quiz via @buzzfeeders #thelibrarians #notasurprise
I got Jenkins! The Librarians Character Quiz via @buzzfeeders #thelibrarians #notasurprise
I got Cassandra. The quiz said that my uniqueness might be a bit demanding to get used to or something crazy like that. Hmph. - WebGoddess
I got Cassandra too, and had I watched the show I would know what that means. Anyway, I was hoping to get John Larroquette. - Zamms
be more stereotypical librarian, zamms. ;) - holly #ravingfangirl
There were no questions about sweater vests, tho. - Zamms
I got Eve Baird. not even one of the librarians - the guardian "You are Eve Baird! You like to do things by the book. Some may call you a straight arrow, but you’re a great role model and are known for making good decisions. Little sways you from your track and once you set your mind to something, people better get out of your way or pay the consequences!" Basically "YAY RULES" :p - ellbeecee

COMPUTER GURUS, I AM STUMPED. i have set up some Word macros to clean up some data that we use in some reports. It is copied into Word from a plain text email that is system-generated. Multiple people need to access them, but when they try to run the reports, for some people the report has paragraph marks, some it uses line breaks.
where is the difference coming from? they all use the same email client from the same browser (Firefox). - holly #ravingfangirl
the macro is set up for one, so on the computers that have the other, the macros don't work. we're trying to have just one set of macros. - holly #ravingfangirl
Does that email client have settings to display incoming email in Rich Text, Plain Text and HTML? - Johnny
wondering if it is related to text encoding with some using unicode, others ansi, etc - Michael W. May
heh. i just went and brainstormed with one of our IT guys, and I am checking those two exact things - email format and text encoding. - holly #ravingfangirl
Sir Christopher Lee's heavy metal Christmas songs side project never ceases to amuse me:

RT @nytimeswell: A look at great benefits of one very intense minute:
.......someone did another study on this? Good grief, it's a well-known fitness and training tactic. Where do they think sprint intervals came from? - Hookuh Tinypants
yeah, it's not just about doing sprint intervals. it's about the bare minimum you could do and still get a benefit, which hasn't been studied as much. - holly #ravingfangirl
I didn't realize it hadn't been studied much. It's been a given in the fitness world for a long time (knowing what the minimum amount you need to do to get a useful workout). Our gym here offers what they call "sprint" classes that last about 5-10 minutes and involve doing this exact thing using either the rowing machines or the spin bikes, for people who don't have time for longer workouts. It's kinda cool actually! - Hookuh Tinypants

woohoo sliced my thumb open!
i fail at washing knives. - holly #ravingfangirl
That is pretty much the only time I cut myself. - Katy S

why does my oven cook most recipes within stated times but significantly longer when roasting meats? ideas @TheFoodLab? other smart people?
So, do you have a light or dark roasting pan? (If light, they can just take a lot longer.) - Jennifer Dittrich
it happens with both light and dark pans. it's baffling. - holly #ravingfangirl
i think i'll test the temperature. maybe meats like roasts/chickens/turkeys are just more sensitive to temp than everything else? - holly #ravingfangirl
Yeah, that's weird, unless your oven is having trouble keeping temperature over long periods of time? - Jennifer Dittrich
that's a thought too. time for experiments! - holly #ravingfangirl
I'd add an oven thermometer, make sure temp you set on dial is the one you achieve in oven - WarLord
yeah, that's what i meant by testing the temperature. - holly #ravingfangirl
The oven could have cold and hot spots which don't effect smaller things or shorter cooked things but are compounded over the time it takes to cook a roast. - Johnny from iPhone
holly #ravingfangirl
past holly fun: kazooing to I'll Be There For You at a Bon Jovi concert. man, that irritates their fans. (i was there for the opening band)
