Top- or front- loader washing machine?
when we bought last year, we ended up with a top loader so I could get more features for the same amount of money. i would have been fine with either though, really. - holly #ravingfangirl
front-loader so you can put on it everything... - Luca Merello from Flucso
I remember researching this last year, water is very tight here so I was going to go with a front-loader, but we were able to fix our old top loader, so no change. - Todd Hoff

oh no, i have a partial container of buttermilk left, what will i do (the answer is always biscuits, fyi)
besides, i have a new biscuit cutter to try out. gotta make sure it works, right? - holly #ravingfangirl

i shake my tiny fist at my earworming so-called friends.
I usually laugh at earworming, because I'm usually able to pop in my earphones and listen to something good to drown it out. - Andrew C (✔)
be thankful you don't have a highly suggestible and sticky brain like me. :P - holly #ravingfangirl
Oh, I do! But like I said, I am usually able to listen to music quickly if necessary, and also I have a relatively low exposure to pop music so some things just aren't burned in to my brain anyways. - Andrew C (✔)
heh. there is just entirely too much music rattling around in this brain. :) - holly #ravingfangirl
"sticky brain" I like that. - Alix May
Made some arancello and now I'm sipping it. The end.

P.S. Cheers, Mike! - Marie
Thank you Marie. - Mike Nencetti
you remind me that i have a berry-cello that is probably ready to drink. - holly #ravingfangirl

can someone return the awesome green docs i got rid of so many years ago in a moment of stupidity? i'd be super happy.
Yep, same with the 15+ pairs of Chucks in various colors I donated when I moved out of my parents' house. - Kristin
yess. i have a bunch of those i ditched too. - holly #ravingfangirl
My favorite pair of Docs (every time I say/write that I chuckle because "paradox") were in the back of my car when it was stolen from William Land Park while I was in class at Sac City College. I miss those. - Bren from iPhone

have i mentioned that i have discovered my twin on twitter? not looks-wise, but 99.9% of our likes/dislikes on food, tv, music, pretty much everything line up. it's spooky awesome.
there have been two whole things that i like that she doesn't: brussels sprouts and crinkle cut fries. :D - holly #ravingfangirl
also: she's another librarian. :D - holly #ravingfangirl

Warby Parker. Thoughts?
Also, am I behind the times to have just heard of Warby Parker? - Julian
Expensive and their stuff mostly doesn't really fit my melon head anyways. They have a retail location in SF that's a nice store, though. - Andrew C (✔)
love them, though i have the exact opposite problem as Andrew. the majority are too large for my face. my current frames are WPs - I think i've gotten new lenses 3 or 4 times now. that's how much i like them. :) - holly #ravingfangirl

Today I did a total of 15 pushups thanks to the Hundred Pushups iPhone app. (Week 1, Day 2, Level 1) #100Pushups
So impressed! I can do 3. :( lol so weak. - Marie
Woot!!! - Amit Patel
Marie, I could only do 2 when I started the Hundred Pushups thing - Amit Patel
Amit, did you have a strategy other than "doing more push-ups" to progress? Does simply doing more of them over time make you stronger? If so, I'll grab that app. - Marie
it's like the Couch to 5K for pushups. gradually increases over time. i was up to the 50s, I think, before i lost motivation. - holly #ravingfangirl
My push-ups are extremely modified! Once I go through the program I'll start over with another type and keep repeating until I'm up to "real" push-ups. - Melly
This is what I'm doing now: - Melly
Yay Melly! - Amit Patel
Marie, I followed the schedule on the free web site (I didn't get the app). I wasn't able to go as fast as they wanted, but I tried anyway, and made some progress. I never got close to 100 though. - Amit Patel

this smells so good. SO GOOD. it's dreamy. #ismellnice - holly #ravingfangirl from Bookmarklet
I'm not supposed to eat that, right? - Zamms
it's a hard urge to fight. in fact, i have this problem with a lot of the products i use. clearly, i like food-based anything. - holly #ravingfangirl
Oh man, the Burt's Bees shaving cream smells delicious. - Zamms
the worst/best is one of the oils i use on my hair. it smells so fruity and delicious i want to nom on my hands/hair every time. - holly #ravingfangirl
(also, we of course call this Creamed Corpse at home.) - holly #ravingfangirl
I imagine this smells something like the Burt's Bees Milk & Honey lotion? I'm a fan of that one, though if I put it on my hands or legs when Rooney is nearby, he wants to lick it off. Pervy kitteh. - Corinne L

current dream: a circulating board game collection. #librarylife
Oh, that could be so much fun. - Jennifer Dittrich
We've been talking about it for Children's. - Katy S
i actually want to do one for adults (though kids do play some of the ones i'd include). I think they'd be a good way to reach that adult population we say we don't do much for. - holly #ravingfangirl
I swear to god I thought your dream was a board game about a circulating collection. - Zamms
ahahahaha don't give my brain ideas like that. - holly #ravingfangirl
For adults would be awesome. It really would. We've been talking about it for children's because we've been discussing ways to do more take home kits that are for older kids. Board games are on the list of possibilities. Since we already deal with kits, we already have procedures for dealing with items with many pieces, so it should be easy to do once we're ready. - Katy S
i am even willing to give up some of my budget to fund it. that's how much I believe in this idea. :) - holly #ravingfangirl
That's how you know you love it! - Katy S
My public library has this for children's puzzles and board games, and I wish they had this for adults. They even put a library sticker on the back of every puzzle piece. - Galadriel C.
O_O Galadriel. - holly #ravingfangirl
Wow! We definitely don't put stickers on every piece of our kits. - Katy S
also, i really want this because it always seems like we are implementing ideas that come from public service. not that we shouldn't implement suggestions they bring to us, but i want them to see that we have great ideas too. :) - holly #ravingfangirl
Oh God. I would love to do this but I hate the idea of dealing with the checkin process. - laura x from iPhone
laura - For our kits, we have a couple volunteers who check the items when the kits are checked in. Whenever a kit is checked out, it is immediately placed on Hold for an account dedicated to them. We then set it aside for the volunteer to go through. The volunteer lets us know if items are missing and we deal with it from there. It could be a lot worse. - Katy S
What a fabulous idea! - Jenny H. from Android
Ooooh, volunteer labor. Good call. - laura x
We put returned kits (we have a good 300 different types of kits in three different collections) in temporary unavailable so that we can check them for parts. saves pain and time. Also, holly see if game manufactures would donate a couple as a pilot or get a game shop in town to sponsor. - ♫Maurice the Trainer♫
Katy - that's brilliant. A friend of mine circulated games in her (small) academic library. I think pieces ran missing tho. - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
and for a lot of games, a piece missing here or there isn't a crisis (depending on the game/piece). I am totally fine circulating games without all the pieces and not micromanaging them. - holly #ravingfangirl
^ This. We keep track of the inventory and update it to keep track of the times when the little things, that aren't of consequence, go missing so that others don't get blamed for it, but often a call to the person who had the kit out leads to the return of whatever was missing. - Katy S
and if you get a 3D printer you can reproduce the missing part. - ♫Maurice the Trainer♫

so someone told me some punctuation was displaying weird on some pages for animals we have for adoption through the rescue group. I asked for specific examples so I could check it out because i hadn't seen this behavior. they replied and said it was commas and apostrophes. >.>
i apparently need to be more specific when i ask for more specifics - holly #ravingfangirl

"“I don’t believe in guilty pleasures. If you fucking like something, like it. That’s what’s wrong with our generation: that residual punk rock guilt, like, “You’re not supposed to like that. That’s not fucking cool.” Don’t fucking think it’s not cool to like Britney Spears’ “Toxic.” It is cool to like Britney Spears’ “Toxic”! Why the fuck not? Fuck you! That’s who I am, goddamn it!

Can't ever remember whether Gala or Fuji apples are the ones that I like/hate.
stupid cvcv fruits - Meg VMeg
I love Fuji, hate gala. - jambina
Yeah, I think I need to remember "fuji=favorite" but I confuse it with "gala=great" - Meg VMeg
You need like a whole acronym. Favorite Unicorn Juggling Innuendo or Great Acronym Like Apple (I got nothin on that second one.) - Jennifer Dittrich
I avoid them both, but I really like Jenn's suggestion. :D - Jenny H.
Ooooh yes, good idea. - Meg VMeg
Gala = gah! - Stephen Francoeur from Android
Don't buy either: get honeycrisp instead! - Stephen Francoeur
I buck trends and like Gala. Also Mahana though that mightn't be known outside New Zealand yet and part of why I like it is the name (Māori for warm both temperature-wise and by extension emotionally). Also I think there was a variety with a name reminiscent of lemonade (unless I'm getting confused with the Whittakers L&P flavoured white chocolate but that set of flavours is a whole different field of awesomeness). - Deborah Fitchett
We are ecumenical in our apple tastes, and like both Gala and Fuji. But, Galas are an earlier variety and don't keep well; Fujis are a later variety and keep somewhat better, so we wind up eating more Fujis than Galas. (And I wandered into the "more than you wanted to know" zone about three clauses ago, didn't I?) - Catherine Pellegrino
No, I'm fascinated! Stephen, I'd get honeycrisp, but they don't sell them at most stores on the way to/from work. - Meg VMeg
oh, you should see my matrix of acceptable apples. it's only in my head right now, but it's a doozy. - holly #ravingfangirl
I prefer Fuji to Braeburn. Those are the ones I most often get messed up. Galas were great early on because they were the first real alternative to Delicious and Granny Smith, but they've fallen in my rankings. - laura x from iPhone

I use rinsed-out Canadian Powerade bottles. That's not me being a Canada snob; they literally don't sell the valve-equipped bottles in the US. Best possible way to keep water next to the bed; you can knock it over and it won't spill. It won't even spill (much) if you turn it upside down and you're not actively drinking from it. - Andrew C (✔)
Are the Gatorade squirt bottles not good enough for you? (Of course now I'm wondering if they still make it...) - Miriella
Holly I think this is worse than finding the perfect purse. - Miriella
I had a 32ish ounce one that was the perfect size - but it won't fit in my car cup holders. It was a Brita one, and it freaking leaked everywhere all the time, so I couldn't toss it on the seat next to me. And then it would just leak while it was standing up being left alone, so I gave that up. I just tossed out my most recent one because it was plastic and it got some funky ass smell... more... - Miriella
Kleen Kanteen with sport cap. - DJF from Android
Merry, have you tried the Camelbak ones? That's my current front-runner, because no-leak, no-spill, plus the Camelbak straw-like flip top thinger. All dishwasher safe. At home I use a giant Tervis tumbler but for travel it's not perfect, even with lid and straw. - Julie Kane
