So today is Pancake Day, right?
it is??? no one told me! man... - Sir Shuping is just sir
Yep. in my neighborhood it's Doughnut Day. But I'm not up to making them. My grandma used to give us hot crullers dusted with powdered sugar for supper. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
hrmmm....might have to make pancakes this evening then. - Sir Shuping is just sir
It's paczki day? I miss those. Until a few years ago, the maintenance guy at mfpow used to bring enough paczki for everyone. Yum. - bentley
BBC has announced there will be a Dr Who LEGO set out later this year. #whenworldscollide
Squeeeee! - bentley
...So the Dr Who minifigs I came across and put in Christmas crackers in December were maybe not entirely official? (I was hanging out for River or Amy but got a Vampire of Venice. An Eleven and a Dalek turned up, I forget the other possibles.) - Deborah Fitchett
When did "lead" become the past tense of "lead"? We have had "led" for quite a while now. Please use it. Also "breathes" are not the sames as "breaths". #several recent books
How do you feel about "people" and "peoples"? I hate "peoples." - Brian Johns
Can we fix past vs present tense of "to read" then? - Andrew C (✔)
Brian - "peoples" has a completely different context than "people", really. I'm not sure how "proper" it is, though. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Well the book I am currently reading got "led" wrong but did get "breaths" right.I'm tired of proofreading instead of enjoying a book. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
I guess some writers are suffering from a case of "lead poisoning". - April Russo
A nice review of Our Nine's book by Kirkus!
This supernatural thriller’s humor and well-developed relationships will keep the pages turning. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
#SaturdayFF - I was reading about inefficient airplane exiting and I remembered my high school assemblies. Before the first one in Ninth Grade we were told to watch what the front rows did. Seniors sat in the first rows, then Jrs, etc. When we were dismissed, only the first row stood up. They left from each end of the row, one by one, and started..
..up the aisles. When they had cleared the seats, the next row stood up and filed out. Quietly. No talking. And each row did the same. It looked impressive and worked efficiently. We also had a rule that we could talk quietly in our seats beforehand, but at 8:58 we must stop without prompting. The assembly began promptly at 9:00. The first words from nearly every guest speaker were about how impressed they were. So of course we felt all smug about showing off our dismissal routine. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
I often wished someone could implement that routine for inter-departmental meetings and such. And bus trips. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
That's how our schools were. I'll never understand people mid-plane who get up at landing and just stand there. - Anika
We had our assemblies in a movie theater next to the school (it was downtown) and there was a big clock so we all knew when to quiet down. And raked seats so we could all see. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
Why can't they just TELL people to wait for dismissal? Be sporting and let the back row go first once in a while. Or Bingo the rows for fun. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
Wherever I am, I'm one of the last people to leave. I hate the body jam to get out as fast as possible. Everyone else can body check each other, I'll be in my seat not getting stepped on thanks. - Heather
^Yes. - Janet
Late #SaturdayFriendFeed: My cousin just posted a picture of the "Diner" neon sign used in Barry Levinson's 1982 movie and reminded me that he built it.
It's now on display at the Museum of Industry. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
Making a same-sex marriage ban illegal does not change public perception of gay marriage I'm glad I live in a state where same-sex marriage was made legal by public referendum.

My niece sent me a black metal "tree" to hold earrings and such. So I decorated it with jewelry and sang holiday songs. Very festive!
Better than sending you a "black metal" tree, I guess ( - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE

They had to after the comments they got on every Tweet they made today. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
So I bought Forever Stamps today. They feature Batman. My favorites are the round stamps that show the Batsignal. I wonder how my elderly Aunties will react to their holiday cards?
Nice views of my city. The pagoda is in my neighborhood.
Happy St Lucia Day!

Just found out that the cold I have is known locally as "The One with the 5 Week Cough." So I guess I got that one and should be good in a week. Maybe.
I hope you feel better soon. - Spidra Webster
Thanks, Hon. It's a weird cold. One day of ridiculous chills, several days of constant nasal goo, and then a cough that leaves you breathless.Apparently "everybody at work" has it, but I barely leave my house. Can't imagine where I got it. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
Bleagh. Sounds like a job for whiskey and honey. - Spidra Webster
Fun new book by Fellow Friendfeeder "Nine" - Soon to be available in paperback for $6. Ready NOW on Kindle internationally! It's even FREE on Kindle Unlimited!
Ok, yeah My Kid wrote it. But it's really funny, a bit Urban Fantasy, a touch Hard-Boiled Narrator, a wee bit homoerotic. It sold well under her original ebook contract and this has been updated and expanded since the original was issued. She even makes a little money from the free Unlimited offer, so give it a try! - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
Yes! Another book by a Fellow Friendfeeder! Available on Kindle for $2.99 or free on Kindle Unlimited. Paperback out soon! - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed

RT @cox_tom: Lovely thing learned from my local owl sanctuary: wild owls worry about the tame show owls & sometimes leave them shrews & mice as presents.
