I'm heading to Indianapolis next weekend to cheer on my Kentucky Wildcats at the Final Four!
Be prepared for protests downtown. - Katy S from iPhone
I know. Not the best timing for the event. - Alan
Well, they couldn't know the state legislature and the governor were going to do this. - Katy S from iPhone
I know, just too bad it happened so close to the event. They had no options to reconsider location. - Alan

Achievement unlocked: five speaking engagements in 2015. (See also: https://friendfeed.com/corinne...)
I feel like such a badass right now. 3 of the 5 include an honorarium. I need to follow up with the Inlandia person who asked about the speaker fee, because that would be fun to do, too. - Corinne L
Incidentally, if any of you have connections to writers' groups in your area that bring in guest speakers, let me know. My presentations are on social media and online platforms for authors/writers (typically self-published or small press). - Corinne L

Synchronicity, part 2: this morning I went back to the Oakland visitor center for more stuff. A couple from DC was there. We got to talking & it turned out the woman went to GWU & graduated 6 years after I did. There was more hugging. #MDGirlforLife
Had a great conversation about NorCal life & things to do. The couple has been seriously considering relocating, so we talked about that a bit. - Corinne L

This morning I stopped by the Oakland visitor center to pick up research materials for my article. While I was there a family of 4 came in. When they told the visitor center associate they were there from Baltimore, I shouted, "Hey! My hometown!" The dad laughed, stretched out his arms and we hugged. #MDGirlforLife
Turned out they live in Columbia, which is a nice suburb I visited often. They had one of the best malls in the area back in the day. - Corinne L
When they left the center I yelled "Go Orioles!" and the dad cheered. - Corinne L
When I meet another person from NJ, we lift our chins and say "'sup?" Then we exchange what exit we're from. =) - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!

Made up with an old friend, last night. We'd been on the outs for eight years or so. Man, that feels good.
It's one of the guys in my old pipe band. I recognized nearly all of the faces there (only 2 or 3 new ones). The biggest change since I was last there in 2008? A lot more of them are dads, so the overall vibe of the band has mellowed. It used to be reeeaaallly intense. Like, merry-gangster intense lol - Brent Schaus

There are certain moments as a mom that I know I'll remember vividly for the rest of my life. Tonight, after I gave Marina a bath, I was getting ready to put a diaper/clothes on her but Adam had put on some music and Chaka Khan's Aint Nobody came on so I scooped Marina up, neither of us dressed, and I held her as we danced around the room. <3
I sang the whole song to her as we danced and I changed the lyrics from "a'int nobody" to "a'int no baby". The moment was perfect and she beamed at me while we danced. Love. <3 - Tamara J. B.
<3 - vicster.
Yessss! This makes me beam just reading about it. Never too early for Chaka. - t-ra needs this place from Android
You know those moments you just know you'll always remember? You will. Forever. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
Awwww. That is the sweetest story. - Corinne L
:') This is one of my ffavorite stories. <3 - AHnix (Anna Haro)
:D <3 It's 2 hrs later and my heart is still overflowing with love from this moment with M. - Tamara J. B.
Damn allergies *sniff* - MoTO Boychick Devil

Wonderful! - Stephen Mack

You all made me feel so welcome when I came here. I love all of you and I appreciate you making me part of your family. :)

After tonight, I'll have written 10 articles about Community. I remember reading synopses of episodes of the series over at The A.V. Club every week, thinking how it cool and fun it had to be to write about a show you loved and could dissect like that. The world is wacky sometimes.
I just wish I could watch it on my mac. I get error 400 every time I try. The ad plays but then nada. I don't have adblock enabled, I just don't know what's wrong. - Gunneh-MoTo Calls me that
Bren
This is probably silly and unnecessary, but I want to shout it out: I LOVE MY SON!!! I have truly never felt the kind of adoration I feel for him.
ffhound_image_0.png
Saying that you love your son is never silly or unnecessary. :) - Jenny H. from Android
I know what you mean... - VALZONE#SCREWED
It's a pretty awesome feeling, isn't it? :) - Penny
Babies are magical beings with the power to melt hearts and create smiles. - Corinne L
<3 - Melly
I'm with you 100%. I think about my kids almost non-stop. - Akiva
Kelli: I meant that posting it here was probably silly and unnecessary, but I see your meaning :) Penny: it is amazing. Corinne: Yes! Akiva: *fistbump* - Bren
:) thank you - Bren from iPhone
What Jill said. Every time you post about your boy it makes me smile :) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

This is still awesome. - Kristin

Godspeed You! Black Emperor: Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress – album stream | Music | The Guardian
"It’s a rare group that makes a point of noting their new LP is a single album, but that’s what Godspeed You! Black Emperor are doing with their new album, Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress – which they observe is their first single album since their earliest days." - Brent Schaus from Bookmarklet
Another reason to love Montreal. - Brent Schaus
I just streamed the album. It's amazing. I can't wait to see them live. - Brent Schaus
I look forward to hearing this. :) - Jenny H. from Android
they are AMAZEballs in concert. I've seen them 3 times, but the best was in an old church in Baltimore. we were all transported to another realm that night. - t-ra needs this place
I caught half a show a few years ago (but had to leave early because sick)... but what I saw was otherworldly. - Brent Schaus
Small factoid? Mauro Pezzente from Godspeed was a fan of my work... no lie. I used to perform regularly at one of his venues (La Salla Rosa) and he liked my stuff. I once tuned my bagpipes in his office, and pulled on some thigh-highs ;) - Brent Schaus
Bren
I am prone to foolish, masochistic tilting at windmills. I have trouble giving up on a dream that has clearly died. While this causes me pain on occasion, I rarely feel the guilt or despair of someone who has given up to soon. I'll take the pain of trying and failing over the shame of failing to try every time.
X-posted to lovefest because it's one of the things I love about myself, among other reasons. - Bren from iPhone
Having said all of that, when the time comes to let go for the sake of someone else's well-being, I let go. - Bren from iPhone
And since I don't feel like sharing anything else at the moment, this can serve as my #SaturdayFF - Bren from iPhone

At the end of my life, the one thing I may regret is that I didn't take enough risks. Food for thought, Bren. - MoTO Boychick Devil

Here are the photos from our awesome meet up on Saturday in Oakland for Vic's birthday. We had a fantastic time but it went by too fast. For me, this will be the last FF meet up before FF shuts down, but I do hope we all remain friends for a long time to come. Thanks Vicster, Stephen, Jimminy, Corinne, Gabrielle, Mandy and Anne for being wonderful

Bren
earlier, I posted a very general statement of affection for my friendfeeding friends. In the comments on this post I shall endeavor to be more specific about the things I really love about you fine people.
I like pie - Johnny
I like that Johnny likes pie. And that Johnny connects so immediately and warmly with everyone. - Bren
I had delish key lime pie tonight. - Micah
I love all the foodies here. I have seen so many great recipes from anna, Steven Perez and a bevy of other food-o-philes on here. edit: Micah just made my point for me. - Bren
I Loves me some ZZ Top - Loud! - Brent - Yes I am
I love that people here have fun *here,* that they share their joy (and sorrow) with people all over the world who have become a close-knit group of friends. Real friends. - Bren
I love Jandy's insane passion for film. I don't really get it, but I love it, and I am glad there are people like her and Jon (among others) who just let their passions show, even if they are somewhat obscure, or if they get flak from the people who don't get them. - Bren
I love the musicians, Rob (atmos trio), Josh Haley, Helen, and everyone else who shares their incredible talents with us. - Bren
I love the writers - Higlet, Brent, Aden, momo and so many others who grace us with beautifully turned phrases on a regular basis. - Bren
I love seeing Kamilah's ff-inspired art roll through my feed. She captures the essence of friendfeed in a way that is primal, joyful, vibrant and warm. - Bren
I love RAP's vast and comprehensive strolls through musicology. - Bren
I love the politicos. Even when I don't agree with them. I love that there can be civil political discourse here, even when it seems impossible in the "real" world. - Bren
I love the photography. The talent possessed by Kol, Mellisa, Johnny, and many many others is beyond me, but I'm glad I get to enjoy it. - Bren
Oh, right... the librarians. don't even get me started on the librarians... so much awesomeness - who knew? - Bren
Wonderful post. Simply wonderful. - Absentee
Oh, Bren....(((((hugs))))) - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
I will share by double chocolate klondike bars with you Bren - VALZONE#SCREWED
witness the generosity of friendfeeders :) thanks, Val - Bren
welcome Bren :D - VALZONE#SCREWED
*applauds and wipes away a tear* Thanks for saying this, Bren! :) - LB needs a hero!
Bren: I think this made my week. Well said. - Ha3rvey (on hiatus)
nicely done Bren - MoTO Boychick Devil
Very nice! - Katy S
I love Derrick. His honesty, openness, and willingness to share his life with us is disarming and endearing. - Bren
Thank you for making me smile, Bren! - Mary Carmen
I love the ff'ers who have moved on, but who made ff interesting to me at times when I thought I would just bail: Corie, Far, Haggis, among others... I am thankful that I had the opportunity to encounter these fascinating, fun, lovely people. Maybe someday they will come back to the fold, but even if they don't, I'll always be thankful for what they contributed. - Bren
I'm really glad that this post has made people happy. I will add to it as I think of people. :) - Bren
this is so great, not least because I dig the same people for the same reasons <3 - Starmama
I love Bren, because he slyly wore a sweater vest to the PDX meetup and gave me a ride home in his zoom-zoom mobile and didn't succumb to putting his hands all over me. It's tough. Many fail at it. - Derrick
It was especially difficult since we got "lost" and had to drive around Portland for an hour... :) - Bren
"Hello, Friendfeed!" - Josh Haley
A: don't tell anyone, but you'll always be one of my absolute favorites. :) - Bren
:) - Derrick
I even love Cristo/Jimminy/Blu whoever the hell it is... - Bren
what about you, Cristo? you don't love me? - Bren
so...you're speaking of yourself in third person now? - Bren
:) - felicious
Ha! - Bren from iPhone
