Notre Dame celebrates its independence on Saturdays in the fall.
All the way to the bank. - Julian
A little bird has told me that the III no longer has a Director of Library Futures. "Too much investment for too little return", I am told.
The future is PLASTICS. - Julian
Right-o, Julian - ellbeecee
I'm bemused by the idea of Library Futures. Where can I buy them? And what is the timeframe to go long on? - Cameron Neylon
Cameron, at the Chicago board of profession, just across the street from the CBOT. - DJF from Android
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ win. - RepoRat
of course now we need to rewrite Trading Places. - Pete
Exactly, Julian - maʀtha from Android
Who wants to lay money on who the next DoLF will be? - maʀtha from Android
I'd last money on the position being eliminated - DJF from Android
that would be my guess too. I can say from experience that getting a position created for you has a way of not working out real well -- at least, where obvious nepotism isn't involved (it's never been for me). - RepoRat
yeah, it didn't last long - maʀtha
Which law suit? - Joe
Innnnnnteresting. - Jason Griffey

In the last week I've seen two people with Apple badges off-campus wearing 80s-style wrist sweatbands. Coincidence, or camouflage?
Camo, almost certainly. - Steve and 4 other people
iWatch - Julian
iSweatband - Stephen Mack
iRetrowrist - Janet from FFHound!
Android Wear. - Louis Gray
Why are only the crappy Android Wear devices available? (i.e Is Moto 360 aging like fine wine?) Maybe they're trying to figure out how to erase that black band on the bottom of the screen. - Professor A.I.
I have the Gear Live and kind of like it. :) - Steve and 4 other people
Nope. It's got to be round to be cool. I'll bet you 500,000 likes that iWatch will be a round face. - Professor A.I.

oh, librarians.
for fuck's entire sake. - holly #ravingfangirl from iPhone
what happened now?? - Sir Shuping is just sir
*gets popcorn* - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Hey, that's TO's line (which I often borrow)... - Julian
(it's such a good line!!) - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
But what happened?? - Betsy
Just librarians being embarrassing, as usual. - holly #ravingfangirl from iPhone
VoIP/SIP provider + DID (for incoming calls) + Google Voice = virtually free calls. I will take that all day.
I am currently using FreelyCall as the SIP provider. If only I could get it to work on a SIP client on the Nexus 5... - Julian

Algeria did this yesterday... - Julian
If I stop watching now, it can only get better.
It did! - Heleninstitches
But I kept watching... - Julian

5 avocados for $4 in bodega around the corner from new apartment. Cue "I Think I'm Gonna Like It Here" from the musical Annie.
How much for the limes? - Julian
And now I have the lime and the coconut earwormed. Thanks, Julian. - Betsy
Sounds like a party? - Julian
Ooh, yes, let's! - Betsy
Thoughtful correspondence is difficult (and time-consuming when one is out of proper practice), but important and fruitful. Saying "sup?" just as a keep-alive is never enough.
This exercise in connection is tough for me today. - Julian
Steven Perez
Just watched CONGO for the first time. I don't get the hate; it's not the worst film based on a Michael Crichton book, and it's certainly a cut above any of the usual SyFy fare. Outside of some bad CGI and ridiculous ape outfits, I kinda liked it.
Sphere was a travesty. - Julian
I went through a phase in my 20s where I read every Crichton book I could get my hands on, and I'm honestly astounded at how many of his books got mangled in the transition from book to film. That guy had worse luck getting adaptations made than Stephen King did. - Steven Perez
SPHERE was a fairy decent story that got turned into hippo manure when it transitioned to the big screen. I don't who is to blame for that, but that's two hours of my life I'm never getting back. - Steven Perez

The yummiest responsibility in the world. - Julian

Three people (NYC people, even) have asked if I'm buying a place, after I've told them I'm moving. It makes me feel extremely poor, old, and single, in that order.
:( - Jenny H. from Android
:( - Janet from FFHound!
I was going to say. Who buys a place in NYC?? - Joe Hardy from Android
Sorry :( - Joe Hardy from Android
:( - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Right? I'm forced to assume it's a buyer's market. Everyone seems to be buying or looking to buy. - Meg VMeg from Android
*hug* What matters first and foremost is your health. If you have that, then the others, we can either work on (if you wish) or do not matter so much anyway. - Julian
Thanks, Julian. I usually don't notice or care about any of them. It's just strange to hear the same unexpected question this often. It feels like a cosmic hint. It's not a cosmic hint. At the same time, I am trying not to say a little prayer in favor of sea level rise. - Meg VMeg from Android
Maybe the cosmic hint is more along the lines of "you project prosperity and abundance to others - how you choose to work with (or against) that projection is up to you." - Corinne L
Ooooh, I like how you think. I will ponder that. Thanks. - Meg VMeg
You're most welcome. (I've had similar experiences that made me think I needed to reframe my response.) - Corinne L

my only goal left for #alaac14 is to facilitate @geekandahalf & @jambina meeting if they haven't managed it yet.
A good reminder that I still need to run into Derrick sometime. - Julian
Everything in this thread needs to happen. - Zamms from iPhone
Meg VMeg
Loaded into a zip car? - Christina Pikas from iPhone
Is the lamp wearing a lampshade? - Julian
Spidra was right, they got a van, AND they were able to telescope the stem in on itself, AND we figured out how to remove it from the base. 100% success for me, and maybe the guy didn't hurt himself too badly. - Meg VMeg
Woo! - lris
#saturdayff I look at wall posts (especially the non-automated variety) as endorsements. A way of telling the world that someone is full of awesome.
I always scratch my head when I see people using them as public email. - Julian

Outback Steakhouse As Explained By A Real Australian via @braddybb @buzzfeed
Who's going to take me to Outback Steakhouse when I visit the US? - Melly
I will! you can eat a bloomin onion! - Sir Shuping is just sir
Is Toowoomba on the menu? - Melly
Hmmm....I do not know. you'll have to come over and we can look - Sir Shuping is just sir
I have never been. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
You're in for a surprise, a disappointing surprise. - Eric - Back to the Grill from iPhone
I've heard that the menu is almost identical to the Lonestar Steakhouse & Saloon restaurant we used to have here, just with different names. - Melly
I'll take you to Morton's. - Julian
I don't recall seeing Toowoomba on the menu. It's basically American food surrounded by Australian kitsch. I like their menu better than some of the other chains that are in the same tier like Applebees and Friday's. - John (bird whisperer)
Lonestar was your regular TexMex fare surrounded by Texan/cowboy kitsch :oD - Melly
I've eaten there exactly once. I would never take an Australian there because it's just plain stupid and there are better "steakhouses" I could be taking my friends to. I like you too much to put you through the Outback experience. :D - Hookuh Tinypants
We took an Australian friend to Outback (in Michigan) many many years ago. While we waited to be seated, she was amused/appalled by it all. (The other funny thing: another friend, from New Jersey, ordered sweet potato fries. The waitress said they only carried that in their restaurants in the South. After the waitress left, friend said she had no idea New Jersey had moved to the South.) - Betsy
There are a couple Outbacks here in Hawaii. The steak isn't anything to write home about, but the last time I went, they had a dry rub BBQ ribs entree that was pretty darn tasty. - Arlan K.
Arlan said "dry rub" #iam12 - Melly
oh just saw a commercial for them and they now have moonshine bbq sauce! you guys are known for moonshine right? - Sir Shuping is just sir
I would have thought we were more known for home brew! - Melly
Victor Ganata
No, fuck that. We should not be normalizing dick pics, solicited or unsolicited. What the fuck is wrong with you?
What'd I miss? Dick pics should never be the norm. I mean, it's not like I hate them but I'm just sayin' I don't need to see that lusciousness unsolicited. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
Social Media Turns Another Private Sexual Affair Into a Very Public Inquisition (And It Has to Stop) - The Daily Banter - I mean, I get the greater point, that people's sexual proclivities shouldn't really be used to make political points, but I just find the idea that sending... more... - Victor Ganata
Hopefully, consent and acceptance will one day become the new normal. - Julian
People do see dicks IRL, so I'm not sure I see the problem with solicited dick pics. - Andrew C (✔)
I just think it's naive to expect that no one is ever going to use your dick pic against you. I mean, I think it's a different playing field if someone just randomly took your pic without your consent, or if someone is now blackmailing you because they have your dick pic and we're talking about a revenge porn business model, but to lay the aversion to dick pics solely at the feet of Puritanism seems too reductionist. - Victor Ganata
I mean, if you did it without contemporary tech: like, you took a film camera, shot pics of your dick, developed them at the store, and then sent out copies only to adoring women, you know that's probably going to bite you in the ass someday, right? - Victor Ganata
I think there's a pretty big difference between solicited and unsolicited, though. Maybe not in terms of career impacts, but certainly in terms of ethics. - John (bird whisperer)
Unsolicited ones are definitely more problematic. But as far as solicited ones go, maybe I'm just more conservative than I thought I was, but I guess I'm not ready for a world where sending people you barely know pictures of your penis (whether or not you're married) is totally the normal and expected thing to do. Like, it's a God-given right or something. - Victor Ganata

Tea bags or loose leaf tea?
Bags. We don't drink much tea. - Pete
Loose leaf. Always. If I want dust I go outside. - Uli
Dang, Uli is hardcore - MoTO: Tufted Coqeutte from Android
Dude. I'm living in Oklahoma after all. We. Know. Dust. :-D - Uli from Android
Usually loose leaf, sometimes sachets. - Jennifer Dittrich from FFHound!
Tea bags. - John (bird whisperer)
Usually tea bags because they're always available, but I prefer loose leaf. - Jenny H. from Android
Loose leaf at home and work. It's easier to control the strength plus it just tastes better, generally speaking, although the pyramid bags with loose tea in them can be pretty darn good so long as the tea itself is good. Bags for travel, though, since they're easier. - Kirsten
Do you make pots of tea or just single cups? Or some of both? - Melly
Single cups- again, we mainly make tea for visitors and that infrequently, so no point in a pot and all the kerfuffle. - Pete
Both. I have an entire cabinet dedicated to tea. The mug I use equals about 2 servings plus. I only make a pot when I'm not in a rush. - Gabrielle from FFHound(roid)!
Re: Pots vs. single cups, also both. But my pots are all on the smaller side. The biggest holds around 3 small mugs' worth. Generally, I use pots exclusively for tea that I only steep once. The teas I steep multiple times, I usually make by the mug. - Kirsten
Loose. - Lnorigb
Bags, and herbal at that (except at my favorite Chinese restaurant, and it's bags there as well). - Walt Crawford
Both. By the cup. - t-ra: WeirdnessSandwich from Android
i drink whatever is handy. mostly by the cup. Uli and Kirsten sure got me the hook-up on the loose stuff, tho! i need to find out who their supplier is. man. - Big Joe Silence
I usually just make one mug at a time, or a small pot. I need to get a larger pot for when people are over, though. It is just not as easy to find a good, utilitarian one that isn't massively overpriced around here. - Jennifer Dittrich
Loose, when available. - Julian
Both - Elena from iPhone
Usually, loose Ceylon dust, in my coffee maker. 3 tsp makes a whole "8 cup" pot, which is brewed directly into a thermal carafe. But when I don't feel like drinking that, I have a whole bunch of other teas to choose from, some loose, some in tea bags. - April Russo
Yes. - Steven Perez
