#saturdayff sparked by Stephen F-ing Mack's. Growing up we had a housekeeper come in a few days a week, but my mom still did a lot of ironing. The laundry room was in the basement and I liked to sit down there with her and look at books while she ironed. I sat there and asked about every word: "what does c - a- t spell?"
Then one day at breakfast she said she was very surprised as I rattled off everything on the cereal box. - Laura Norvig
When I got to Kindergarten, I was one of the only ones who could read. I was called upon to read to the whole class, which both enthralled and terrified me. - Laura Norvig
I distinctly remember that the book I read was both about a cat and shaped like a cat. - Laura Norvig
neat! - Marie

Trip to urgent care to remove stubborn tick from Wade's neck. Was not the Lyme disease kind. But required nova sine and digging to get that sucker out.
Novacaine, autocorrect, you dummy - Laura Norvig from iPhone
:( glad that they got it out though - Sir Shuping is just sir
Yikes! I'm glad it wasn't the Lyme disease tick, but still...yikes! - vicster
:( - Larua Boats from Android
Yikes. I got a tick on the back of my neck hiking in Tilden park. We checked the dogs but not the kids, lol. My parents took me to a hospital by our house. Right inside the ER in the hallway was a doctor smoking a cigarette. !!! the 70s. He burned the tick off my neck with his cig & we went home :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
That is hilarious, Starmama. Always heard about holding a hot match head to the body but never tried it. I think if you kill it instead of getting it to back out it's no bueno. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
With quotes like, "I'm glad that the Seahawks are losing and we're winning," last night was the perfect time to watch Silver Linings Playbook. My husband needs to see this movie.

You gais, how do you work out in the middle of the day? I want to swim, but I want to eat.
When I briefly tried lunch workouts, I'd exercise first (for 30-45 mins) and then gobble food at my desk after. It was a bit trying. I now prefer to exercise at the end of the day. - Stephen Mack
I did it (cuz pool is right downstairs). Problem is, there is also a hot tub, dry sauna, steam room, nice showers ... so it is pretty tempting to linger. - Laura Norvig
Ha! I don't know if we can help you with the lingering part, but yay! - Larua Boats from Android
Because of the intensity of my workouts, I have to time all of my meals right. So I don't take a break to eat. I pull out my "lunch" at 10:30am and eat while I'm working, so that by 1pm when my training sessions start, I am digested and have the energy to complete the workout. I then follow up with a protein snack to help with recovery and keep me going until I get home to make dinner. You get in the habit of treating breakfast and lunch as biological functions, and dinner like a proper meal. :) - Hookuh Tinypants
Back when I was working, I'd nosh at my desk while working then use my lunch hour to either walk to the gym and work out (in one work situation) or go to a back room and use a video workout (in another work situation). - Spidra Webster
My husband: "Blah, blah, blah football." My son: "Blah, blah, blah Pokemon."
#saturdayff I have lived in a VW van and a half-size school bus. The former was a nomadic lifestyle, the latter had the luxury of being parked in a driveway.
I'm in the mood for some good #saturdayFF - whatcha got kids?
Hmm! - Stephen Mack

how to find the well-hidden "show typical traffic" feature in gmaps on the web. - Laura Norvig
it's unbelievable how hard they make it to find this. - Laura Norvig
plus, as far as I can tell, you can't tie it to a route, only to a single map coordinate and then zoom in or out. dumb. - Laura Norvig
RT @spacekatgal: Can hardly believe how terrible the Twitter interface for making lists is. Use the Website, REALLY?
I am frequently surprised at how unpolished the Twitter experience is, and I use the website, Android app, and iOS (iPad) app frequently. I guess they're iterating quickly, but core functions like lists languish. - Andrew C (✔)
It feels pretty good to be out of Lilly-white Santa Cruz.
NTS in case landlord tries to deduct linoleum/vinyl replacement: Relative lifespan: The cost of vinyl and linoleum is offset to some extent by the difference in their life cycles. While vinyl can cost as much as 50% less than linoleum, it will only last on average 10-20 years. Meanwhile a linoleum floor can last upwards of 20-40 years, which means...
Normal wear and tear includes simple wearing down of carpet or drapes because of normal use or aging, and includes moderate dirt or spotting. In contrast, large rips or indelible stains justify a deduction from the tenant’s security deposit for repairing the carpet or drapes or replacing them if that is reasonably necessary. On common method of calculating the deduction for replacement... more... - Laura Norvig
