About to order the last gift on my shopping list. This is for a "sort of but maybe not really boyfriend of an old friend whom we're going to see this weekend." Shopping challenge. I'm thinking Halloween barware never goes wrong.
AND DONE - Jason P
what did you get? - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
A skull shot glass. - Jason P
We are having several friends over and I want to get some small, inexpensive gifts to give out -- like the $10 range. Ideas?
Coffee mugs with treats? - Jennifer Dittrich from FFHound!
That's exactly the sort of thing. - Jason P
If you want to get fun with it, there are paint pens you can get that are specifically for ceramics - so you could decorate the mugs with simple designs, or the person's initials or whatever. Another idea that I JUST saw that was cute - a beer stein with candies (like butterscotch candies) topped with marshmallows (looks like beer). - Laura
Dime bags. But i'll try and think on more legal options. - Steve C Team Marina
homemade baked goods. with a bottle of beer. and a rub on tattoo. - Sir Shuping is just sir
or you can give them a tattoo! - Sir Shuping is just sir
Ha! I like the (temp) tattoo idea. I'm not qualified for the more permanent kind. - Jason P
These are great ideas, folks, thanks. Keep 'em coming. - Jason P
just do it with a permanent marker. it will eventually come off....mostly. - Sir Shuping is just sir
My mom gave all my high school friends coloring books, crayons, and those clips you hold bags of chips closed with for graduation. She became surprisingly popular. - laura x from iPhone
Depending on the crowd, novelty condoms? - laura x from iPhone
if they drink i used to buy a bottle of some really fancy beer/wee champagne thinger and go to the dollar store to get the most redonkulous cup you can find to go with it. - jambina
Wife got godiva chocolate ornament stars for $7 - MoTO: #TeamMarina from Android
DIY jam jar snow globes are easy and cheap: - Soup in a TARDIS
Tacos. - Kristin
How about something like this? It's a mini cast iron skillet that is meant to be used to bake a single cookie, along with the cookie mix. - April Russo
Those little chocolate bottles filled with real booze. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Anne is watching a low-budget British ghost show. I'm doing EVP simulations in her ear and shouting "Look an orb!" to heighten the experience.
i wonder if a comedy album has ever been done with this as the basis? - Big Joe Silence
Stepped outside to watch Ant-Man filming for a few minutes, nbd.

Last night I had drinks with a friend. Next week her boyfriend is staying with us. I think I agreed to talk him into starting therapy, stopping coloring his hair, and getting a vasectomy. But I will have two days.

Make it a swear word, and you'll eventually type it into the box out of exasperation. - Eivind from Android
My sister (in Thailand) has been going nuts to get the new iPhone. She ordered one to our house for me to send to her. Before we mail it to her, I'm going to take some pictures of us using it as a coaster and maybe the cats playing with it.
You are an awesome brother. And by "awesome" I mean "deviously evil." - Catherine Pellegrino
Poor Ip. She's forgotten who her brother is... - Jenica
My sister asked me a question about shoes on FB. Me: "I'm not a fashion guy; you've seen how I dress." Her: "heh heh yeah"
Such a cutie! - Soup in a TARDIS

Gangly little boy is determined. And gangly. - RepoRat
EARS. There is a tiny kitten attached to those HUMONGOUS EARS. - Catherine Pellegrino
OMG. Too, too cute. That squeak! - Kirsten
Leon has just had a damn tiring day.
It's tough being that cute. - RepoRat
I've been on online reference for two and a half hours. So far I've had two questions. One was a noise complaint and one was "can I renew a book that's overdue?". Hour and a half to go.
There's yer cat photo, Pellegrino. Quit complaining
<3 - RepoRat
Calvin looks happy to have a friend. - RepoRat
d'AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW - Catherine Pellegrino
That really is too cute a pic. - Kirsten from Android
So cuddly! - Katy S
(also I totally did log in to The Evil Empire JUST TO SEE THAT PIC so there, Puckett.) - Catherine Pellegrino
Cuddly kitties are the best thing ever. - laura x from iPhone
We all miss Mina, but Leon is a charming little bugger in his own right. - Jason P
Awww, I thought you named your cat Pellegrino. - Kristin
Maybe the next one. - Jason P
What a pretty kitty. - Anika
He's gonna be gorgeous when he's grown up. - Jason P
(like his dad) - Jason P
What a sweet little guy! - Katy S
He's totally adapting to life here. He and Calvin are wrestling and snuggling and all that we could have hoped. They're becoming fast friends. - Jason P
Leon and Marley completely ignore each other -- again the best possible we hoped for. - Jason P
Just posted one to fb - Jason P
I love my parents, and I love having them stay with us for a couple of weeks, but also thank fuck for a break from having people around and getting to watch Doctor Who on my own.
All hail fuck - Steve C Team Marina
Fuck is my copilot. - Catherine Pellegrino
Pellegrino is on t-shirt duty. - Jason P

It means I want a t-shirt of what she said. ;) - Jason P

Welcome to the family, Leon.

Show all
awwwww! hi sweetie! - RepoRat
He's about nine weeks old and early signs indicate that he and Calvin may get on famously. - Jason P
Marley couldn't give a shit. He strode in and stole part of her dinner and she didn't even look up at him. She's seen 'em come and go. - Jason P
He's adorable - such unique coloring! - Laura
What a cutie! - Galadriel C. from Android
Cute, but he looks like he may be an advance scout for the Alien Cat Invasion. Something about the eyes ... - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Odds are good he'll darken up a bit as he grows, which will make his coloring even more striking. - RepoRat
EARS. omg the ears! - Catherine Pellegrino
I love the super black nose - Hedgehog
and toe beans! - RepoRat
I LOVE HIM. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
We're gonna need this many pictures every day. You know that, right? - RepoRat
He and Calvin are becoming buddies. It's amazing to watch. - Jason P
Is he a Maine Coon? Cause he has a big M on his little forehead. And he will be a substantial cat. - ♫Maurice the Trainer♫
He could have some MC blood, Maurice. (He's a shelter mutt, so who knows.) We're going on the theory that he might be a Siamese/tabby mix, given his points and the stripes on his face, and the blue in his eyes, but he definitely doesn't have the Siamese voice. I think he may be a big guy too. He eats like a horse. - Jason P
Siamese tabby all the way. He looks just like my friend Sarah's cat did, as a kitten, and we know she was a S/T mix. He also has that slight cross-eyed look that siamese cats get. Miles has it, too. ;) - Jenica
oh em gee the cute! cannot stand! - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
He's very outgoing but still often shy about being petted or picked up. Yesterday I caught him napping, picked him up to cuddle him, and he went "eeeeeeEEEEeeee hey this is okay PURRRRRRRRRRR", so I have high hopes that he's going to end up being very sociable. He follows Calvin around the house wanting to play now, and Cal seems to like it. - Jason P
It takes a few days before they get over OMG UNFAMILIAR PLACE. He's gonna be just fine. - RepoRat
Oh, totally. He was in "high-speed exploring mode" almost immediately. No fear. - Jason P
ADORABLE - Mary Carmen
The Embedded Librarian: Innovative Strategies for Taking Knowledge Where It's Needed -
Today we drove to Ellijay GA, two hours north of Atlanta, and back to pick up Anne's apple trees. She promised me that there were no comparable apple trees any closer. Then I spent the afternoon playing Dresden Files RPG at a friend's place. Tomorrow, tree planting and yard work.
Also, I met a cat named Samuel L Catson. - Jason P
