"It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" -- Winnie the Pooh

All of a sudden, epic tragedy. Must be nap time. #Mr3 #metoo
Visited #babyR and my sister and brother-in-law this morning. Such teensy cuteness!
A movie is being shot in my living room for realz.
Having experimental film makers for friends opens up whole new experiences. :) - lris
I hope it stars the bird - maʀtha
I'm an aunt again! My sister had a baby boy!
I currently have no more details. :) - lris
I'm afraid I'm going to have to resort to the accessibility option for an on-screen home button on my iPad. When your machine only has two buttons and one of them doesn't work? Not so fun.
I've got that issue too. Intermittently, which is even more fun. - ~Courtney F
Yeah, I've been at the intermittent stage for a few months now. No fun at all. - lris
I have the same problem with my iPhone's volume buttons. Since I normally leave the ringer off, it isn't a huge issue, but it's annoying. I've considered the accessibility mode option. - Katy S from iPhone
Not going to work on a work day. #rebel
*fist bump*! - Sir Shuping is just sir
I question the life choices of those who conduct business over the phone while using the bathroom.
Construction zones around my office this summer are in blue...

We lived through a couple of years of that, including our building (we didn't move out) and the one next to us. My sympathies. - kaijsa
Looks like their forces are weak to the east. If you can gain the element of surprise, you might be able to get most of the people out with minimal casualties. - Steele Lawman
The terrain there is tricky, you see, and includes hills full of trees and underbrush and poison ivy. Still, they will never expect that, so the element of surprise may be doubly on our side. - lris
Feeling you. http://www.news.wisc.edu/22935 My building is of course on one end of Park Street. - RepoRat
Oh the weather outside is frightful.
Martha and Sarah today at the party celebrating their wedding.

That's a good picture! thanks, Iris! - maʀtha
You two are very cute. :) - Laura
Iris, would you be willing to share this pic with me? - maʀtha
that is a very happy picture, made my day. :) - Benedicta
As Aunt Ann says, "That is cute a while" - MoTO: Tufted Coqeutte
you look so happy!! congratulations!! - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
A big ol' grin spreads across my face every time this scrolls by. - MoTO: Tufted Coqeutte
happy day! - barbara fister
Gypsy prefers to sleep cuddling with her favorite toy. To do this she has to balance between the foot that's on the toy and the foot that's on her rope perch and then lean in to rest her chin on the toy. While sleeping.

Me on the phone with my mom while I'm standing in the middle of the Japanese grocery store: "Ok, so I see one package here with kanji that looks like an upside down Y, with a cross bar at the place where the lines meet, and then there's a line down from there, too, with a smaller cross bar..."
What did you buy! - Meg VMeg
EVERYTHING (It was the periodic restocking of my mom's kitchen, plus the much more modest restocking of my own.) - lris
禾 - rice? - Professor A.I.
本 - book. The first kanji of a particular kind of a S&B wasabi. - lris
That's the tricky part. I know what things look like, but if you want a particular version of a brand... I need pictures. :) - lris
I find it hilarious that characters on TV dramas on Fox all say nuke-you-ler instead of nu-clee-ar.
Because Bush? - Joe
Can't think of another reason. - lris
I can never remember my #saturdayff stories on Saturdays.
So kind of my newest broken toe (2 years ago now) to take part in the weather forecasting duties so enthusiastically provided by so much of my body. #ow
Accomplished many little household tasks. Man, households take a lot of care!
A change is as good as a rest -- a saying that does NOT apply to heartbeats.
Interesting when your emails end up in a string that's suddenly copied to the 2nd in command of the whole institution... Luckily it involved something I'm proud of.
Whelp, just got to enact our brand new emergency plan for the first time.
Did you get to kill anyone? - Professor A.I.
NOT YET - lris
you ok? what happened? - Sir Shuping is just sir
Oh yeah, I'm fine. Construction caused a leak, so I let the people know who needed to know, and hopefully there won't be too much damage done. - lris
whew...glad that you're ok and that it isn't too bad of a thing - Sir Shuping is just sir
I'm glad everything is fine. Did the plan run smoothly? Not that you ever want these things to happen, but it can be good to assess the plan after an incident. - Katy S
Everything on our end went pretty well (notifying people who needed notifying, etc), but there were complications to learn from (as always). - lris
Gypsy was antsy, so I brought her out to the hammock with me. #undermytree
sounds sublime - MoTO: Tufted Coqeutte
I'm pretty tickled to have a pet who wants to do this kind of thing :) - lris
This just in -- I have a bit of a temper...
It's very confusing to work on a big project with people who don't use Dropbox or Google Docs or anything similar.
yep. I'm also confused when they say things like "i'm not to good with technology, so it's better to call me than do email" - Sir Shuping is just sir
"Oh, can you send it to me as an attachment?" *headdesk* - Catherine Pellegrino
Yep - lris
Or people who say 'text me' instead of using email. - Professor A.I.
Or who CALL ME. ON THE PHONE. Because I asked questions on their website ONE MINUTE AGO. - Mary B: #TeamMonique
if a project is urgent and the need for assistance is immediate, the fact that phone calls can't be accidentally deleted and don't require waiting around is HUGE. IM is a decent stand-in. sometimes. - Big Joe Silence
our faculty senate president doesn't understand google forms. which we're using to collect feedback at a major faculty event in about 4 weeks. - ~Courtney F
I have so little patience for this kind of thing. Keeping current with the tools used in a work environment seems like a basic requirement for continued employment. I always want to say to these people, "You have a brain, use it and learn something new." Sigh. - Laura Krier
I'm working on a complex SaaS migration right now and *thank god* we're using Basecamp. We always used Basecamp on the prior work I did. Our org as a whole has not standard tool and it just pains me to no end. We have Sharepoint and Chatter but that is so inferior. I wish we just had Asana or Box or something. I force people to use GDocs because ... I just can't with the revision nightmare. - Laura Norvig
I've used Basecamp and it always seemed remedial to me. Stuck in some kind of Web 1.0 time warp along with Salesforce. - Professor A.I.
Weird Al’s “FOIL” (remember “Royals” by Lorde?) Aluminum FOIL. Never settle for less! - http://kokeshichan.tumblr.com/post...
That song nearly killed me. When he got to the second verse of it - I was laughing so hard I nearly ran my car off the road... - WebGoddess
The illuminati know! - lris
By the way, if you have kids, this is the week to introduce them to Weird Al. - Zamms
I did just that! He didn't remember us listening to his songs when he was little :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Glass of wine. New book. Hammock. #undermytree #ahhhhh
what's the new book? - Sir Shuping is just sir
The last one in the All Souls Trilogy - about witches and vampires and time travel and stuff. Perfect summer hammock reading. - lris
Mmmmmm - lris
No office means I HAVE TO lounge on the couches in the reference room with my laptop. #constructionzen
you sound terribly put out about this. ;) - ellbeecee
such a bummer. - RepoRat
Construction Zen, LBC, you either have it or you go insane. :) - lris
Listening to my "Happy Happy Joy Joy" playlist for the first time in ages and ages. Couch-dancing. #constructionzen
Wherever I am, that is where my office is. #constructionzen
I'm have far too much fun "kicking people out of my office" by walking away after saying goodbye. - lris
People pay good money for white noise machines. I get construction noise for free. #constructionzen
nice tag there, Missy. - MoTO: Tufted Coqeutte
If you don't have a choice about something, make the best of it. <cryptic>
When I was young, my dad would call difficult things that we didn't have a choice about but just had to get through "hardship duty." The idea was that you'd get through it with minimal complaining and maximum good grace. Comes in handy, I tell ya. - lris
Also, on the scale of things? This isn't even a hardship, just a nuance, so shut up about it. - lris
My inbox tells me I've been disinclined to deal with stuff lately...
I thought this was "Ignore Your Inbox Tuesday" *checks calendar*. YOU MEAN IT ISN'T? - MoTO: Tufted Coqeutte
