But I like the Oxford comma (and semicolon)...
Also, pure brilliance. Far surpasses the original which provided the inspiration. - Julian

2007 in Missoula, MT - Jim: with more caffeine! from iPhone
I'm so jealous of y'all. I have to get it down the stairs, in the car, and to a different neighborhood. Hate having to use a laundromat. Last time? Week n a half ago. Going again Friday. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Last summer for massive bedding & linen washing. Otherwise it's downstairs in my building. I look forward to the day when I have my own washer & dryer again and I don't have to save all my quarters for machines. - Corinne L
I'm going to tomorrow for the first time since 1999. But I'm going to cheat and use their wash-n-fold service. - Akiva
Two weeks ago. (It will soon be time again.) - Julian
2 years ago when I moved in w Philosopher. we have in building laundry. - Hedgehog from Android
Earlier this year, when I was living in Vegas and the bunkhouse washing machine was broken for about 6 months. - Jenny H. from Android
Last fall to clean my duvet and mattress pad. I have a small washer with agitator, and they don't fit in it. - Holly's favorite Anna from Android
Used the apt one last fall. Truck stop one two years ago - FLEMING from Android
Last year, to wash our mattress pad since it doesn't fit in the laundry machine. - Andy
Laundromat. Um, Paris, I think. Yeah. Paris was 1995. Last laundry-not-my-own was the at motel I lived in December 2011 while my house was being repaired post-earthquake. (Haha. They still haven't finished off the work, but at least they finished enough that I could move back in and even eventually put the curtains back up.) - Deborah Fitchett
Six days ago to do sleeping bags before the camping trip. - Joe
Sunday. - Steven Perez
Probably a year ago but I think it's likely I'll be using one at least once on this upcoming trip. - Spidra Webster
My husband used one yesterday, but I am still washing my clothes by hand. - April Russo
Two days ago. And I didn't use the laundromat, it was consensual and mutually beneficial. - Todd Hoff
Sorry about the side scroll. Germany just won the World Cup.
... even with time still on the clock. - Julian
That was pretty. - Joe
"Baby rocked to sleep by CD rom tray on computer." - imabonehead from Bookmarklet
I just learned more about the "eject" command. Also, awwwwwwwwww. - Julian
GOL --> GAH - Julian
GOAL out loud? - imabonehead
I accidentally the whole romance novel. And multiple bodices were, indeed, ripped. #themoreyouknow
Oop. - Julian
I've been doing that with webcomic archives lately. Fewer ripped bodices, but similar "whoa, did I read all that?" - RepoRat
It was a Kindle book I'd gotten on some promotional thing -- I knew nothing about it. Half way through it became clear what genre this was. Oh the bodices, they were flimsy. - lris
lol they just don't grow linen like they used to - RepoRat
If it took until halfway through to be clear what genre it was, it wasn't doing a very good job of genre. ;) - Catherine Pellegrino

Frontera frontera frontera frontera frontera frontera frontera frontera frontera
You are in Chicago? - Julian
ARE YOU?!?! - jambina
You got stuck at my airport due to rain, figured I'd return the favor! - Meg VMeg
I am at Meg's, so if you need a place to crash, just holler. - jambina
Will do, thanks. Hopefully our next flight won't get canceled. - Meg VMeg from Android
Tortas Frontera calls Negra Modelo, "Mexico's finest Munich-style Dunkel beer" - Meg VMeg
That would probably be funnier if you'd been up since 3:30am. - Meg VMeg
I was up off and on from 1-7:30. It's pretty funny. - laura x from iPhone
I'm just too tired to laugh properly. - laura x from iPhone
*fistbump* - Meg VMeg
There is an Amish or fundamentalist Mormon woman here, plugged into a battery. Also this other woman is having a really loud and excruciatingly detailed conversation with her child about the child's loose tooth. - Meg VMeg
My pants are covered in Garrett's cheese powder. - Meg VMeg
We are eating torta number 2. - Meg VMeg
what's your ETA? - jambina
So we're boarding in an hour, barring further storms and/or federal requirements for rest. - Meg VMeg
ah, okay. let me know! - jambina
There is a thing called Central Time for people in the central part of the country. Remember? I think Houston would have been in it. - Joe
Made it! - Meg VMeg from Android
Scoble, Alex Scoble
Any bets on when CentOS 7 will be released? -
March 2015 at the earliest. - Julian
(I've been so out of it that I did not even notice that RHEL 7 came out three weeks ago.) - Julian
The official release is getting closer! - imabonehead
If I send you a thoughtfully worded email and you reply back to me, "Thanks Kathy!" just know that I'm going to sit here, fuming, for quite a while.
That's good to know, June. - ellbeecee
>_> - Marie
Hope to hear from you soon, Mary. *ducks* - Julian
Why so touchie, Marge? - Joe
I got called Mary in a meeting last night - maʀtha
Fellaini got rid of (most of) the hair??? WHA...?
Whaaaaaaaaat. - Jennifer Dittrich
I don't even know him anymore. - Julian
Oh, it looks like it is braided. - Jennifer Dittrich
6 1/2 Years Of Selfies Show Her Life With Mental Illness -
Just incredible. - Julian from Bookmarklet
I just discovered that next to the library in my neighborhood (by neighborhood, I mean a five minute walk away from home) is a Capital Bikeshare station. Right next to a park, too. My figure badly needed the motivation to shape up.
... but now I have to figure out if the membership plus per-ride usage fees compare well to just buying my own bike. I have not had one of my own in eleven years. - Julian
Stephen Francoeur
What airline will you no longer fly and why?
TWA - Blake
Oh, we're going to go that way? OK, then I say Braniff. - Stephen Francoeur
Interflug. - Uli
B.O.A.C. - Uli
I refused to fly Northwest after they stranded me in Minneapolis one time. They got absorbed by Delta though - Hedgehog from Android
TACA (AKA Take A Chance Airlines, now known as Avianca El Salvador ) - ellbeecee
I miss Ozark, myself. - laura x
United. Because of routes. - Julian
Ryanair. True cattle car. - Spidra Webster
Frontier, because their fee structure fills me with resentment. - Meg VMeg
Spirit Airways, because the flight I took with them filled me with much rage for their poor method of handling things and their flight attendants/pilots violating faa rules - Sir Shuping is just sir
Air New Zealand because they advertise using Māori and Māori symbolism and then won't hire cabin staff who wear moko because they think it'll scare the poor widdle tourists. Then they compounded my despite with incredibly sexist inflight safety videos and refused to listen to passengers' complaints of increased sexual harrassment from fellow passengers. So I'll stick with budget Jetstar. - Deborah Fitchett
I try to avoid American. - J. Marie B
Grace L Ferguson (and Storm Door) Company .... I'm not helping, am I? - Shannon - GlassMistress
i hate American Airlines, but they seem to be the only show in town for some destinations in SE Asia. - Big Joe Silence
I avoid United as much as possible. They've screwed me over with cancellations twice at least. - Andrew C (✔)
Clearly I don't travel enough. :P - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
American and United. Their fees and general bullshit sent me running to Virgin, JetBlue, Alaska, and Southwest years ago. - Hookuh Tinypants
Delta. Always late. Always an old plane. Always a grumpy staff. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
American Airlines. Worst customer service ever and ridiculous fares. - Jenny H. from Android
I generally don't care; I go with whatever's cheapest through Expedia. I do try to avoid any airline that doesn't do assigned seating, though. Cattle calls can SaF. - Akiva
Jetstar. - Melly
I don't avoid airlines; I avoid airports. I don't connect via the NYC metro area. Ever. - Jenica from iPhone
True, Jenica. I hate Logan in Boston (kind of an irrational hate based on being stuck there for 8 hours in 1992 on my birthday trying to get back to school for fall semester), but I'll connect there if I must to avoid connecting in NYC. - ellbeecee
We have the United hub so they are hard to ignore. I try to avoid airlines like Spirit that charge you extra for just sitting down. - Eric from iPhone
Slim pickin's flying out of my small town, so we take what we can get. - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
Allegiant, the Greyhound of the skies. - Laura Krier
United, mostly because they price themselves out of consideration any time I am looking. American was on my shitlist for leaving me behind at DFW years ago, but they've been pretty reliable, and are often my only reasonable choice for flying through DFW. Delta has inconsistencies, but are often the best deal out of my mid-sized airport, though I hate flying through ATL all the time.... more... - Holly's favorite Anna
Spirit Airlines, an abomination - maʀtha
This whole thread fascinates me. I've never really thought about airlines and why one would or wouldn't choose them, other than price and schedule. - laura x
I am also an airport avoider. Will go well out of my way to avoid Chicago O'Hare and Toronto unless I really have no other choice. - Marianne
Spirit is totally a "you get what you pay for" thing. - kendrak
Here in London Ontario, all my flights connect through either Toronto or Chicago. I'm basically screwed. - DJF from Android
Well. CentOS 7 has dropped. I better get on that (torrent).
Downloading now... - Julian
Got it. Now, to share it with the torrenting masses. - Julian
MLB All-Star Game to feature self-serve beer machines - ESPN -
MLB All-Star Game to feature self-serve beer machines - ESPN
Is this a good idea? - Julian from Bookmarklet
Probably not. Aside from any concern about someone being underage, people who've been drinking are not the best at operating unfamiliar (or even familiar) machinery. - Jennifer Dittrich
Then again, if you can't operate it then you don't get the beer, so.... - Kirsten
True, though people do tend to get ornery when thwarted like that. I wonder if they've got a function to summon security built in? - Jennifer Dittrich
Curious George making a mess counts as "too scary, don't like it" for the #visitingtoddler
New Curious George? - Julian
I'm not sure that it wouldn't count as "too scary, don't like it" for Mr. 6 as well. - Catherine Pellegrino
Goodness. Don't even try Cat in the Hat, then. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE from WinForFeed
THWAPP! - Julian
KABLAM! - Melly
ZOWIE! - Julian

Mary Carmen
Here's the deal with me:
I'm a hyper, happy, always look on the bright side, workaholic, who loves to laugh, have a fun time, drink snooty Belgian beer, and knows dick about wine. I swear like a sailor on shore leave and have a thick NYC accent. I could eat pizza or a bacon cheeseburger every day and be quite happy. I will always think my ass and hips and thighs are too big and will perpetually be "on a diet." I like being silly before I fall asleep and first thing when I wake. I am mostly nocturnal and do enjoy sleeping in very late on Sundays. I love football and hockey. I'm addicted to yarn and often come home with it. I will cry any time I see a stray cat or dog and I get very grouchy when I'm hungry or tired. I hate talking on the phone, but love getting/sending text messages. I think the Who and the Kinks are the best bands ever and that the Rolling Stones are overrated. I will go to every record store in NYC to hunt down that Sweet Things 7 inch on vinyl and will listen to the same record over and over... more... - Mary Carmen
OK. :) - Steven Perez
No reason to give up who you are. - John (bird whisperer)
I know someone will find all this just may take 30 years to find him. ;-) - Mary Carmen
That much effort deserves attention. Most don't put so much work into putting themselves out there. You will do well with what you have written. - Julian
PREACH IT. Also, lurv for you. - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤
*crushes on MC* - Ayşe E.
And now I have a total girlcrush. :D - Hookuh Tinypants
I think you're grand. - Mary B: #TeamMonique
Funny, I snoot Beer at Belgians that drink. That and I am only slightly envious of the recored collection Pictured. - Brent - Yes I am
Great info - hadn't seen it before now! - Paulette
And now I completely understand why we were insta-friends. *MWAH MA BELLE* - jambina from iPhone
WRONG! (about the 30 years :) - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
I think I will now go and cry based on Micah's comment. Happy tears! - Georgia
like this very muchly - WarLord
Yup, still a total girlcrush. :D - Hookuh Tinypants
Explains my Auntiecrush as well. Love this - and you! - Mary B: #TeamMonique from iPhone
I just read this again 5 years later and am smiling at what has changed, what has not changed and what will never change. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
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
Kevin Fox
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

Android Wear. - Louis Gray
I have the Gear Live and kind of like it. :) - Steve and 4 other people

what happened now?? - Sir Shuping is just sir

Hey, that's TO's line (which I often borrow)... - Julian
(it's such a good line!!) - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an

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

If I stop watching now, it can only get better.
It did! - Heleninstitches

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
