In preparation for the Candy, I mean Holiday, Season, ‪#‎ThrowOutThursday‬ involves throwing out old candy. If it's not in a wrapper, it's automatically gone. If I don't like it, it's gone. If I don't think the kids should eat it, it's gone. That about leaves DumDums and a few bags of Skittles. =)
Smarties last forever. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
After the 'Tantrum from Hell' over the summer, I cut candy and baked goods from the kids' diet. The improvement in behavior has been so obvious, I know I made the right decision. m9m, I'll send you all the Smarties. =) - Yvonne Renee

Well, it’s my birthday and also National Cheeseburger Day! Although a cheeseburger with a candle on it might be a bit weird. :)
Happy birthday! - LB: Unable to Can from Android
You could always get one of those cakes they sell at Martin's/Giant grocery stores (not sure if you have those out your way - if not, one of your grocery stores might have them) that looks like a cheeseburger. They look like they're crazy-heavy on the icing, though. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE

Why yes, that was me chasing my cat through the house as he aimed toward carpets while getting ready to barf.
That sure does sound familiar. - Walt Crawford
yep. sure does. - RepoRat
Among many other characteristics that made her The Best Cat Ever, I'm pretty sure that Molly actively tried to aim her hairballs at hard surfaces. Swear to god. - Catherine Pellegrino
My skill is catching said cat puke with magazine or newspaper. It is a feeling of WIN I tell you! - Janet
I've had some wins, but then there was the time the cat puked a hairball on my pillow. - Jen

What's your favorite calculator model used in school or thereafter?
Casio fx-7000g, still use it. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
HP-67 all the way, though I'll admit my HP-45 probably got me through my EE degree. - David Lounsbury
I never really learned to use calculators for advanced functions until last year. My HS calculator (which I still have and which still works on its ORIGINAL battery) is a TI-35 Plus. I really like the size of it. But it's a little sticky around the buttons so when I was in Chem 22 I bought a TI-36X. Its weight and size is nice but it has no log button. It turns out you do log by... more... - Spidra Webster
I don't remember what brand/model it was, but it was a printing calculator that I found in one of the abandoned offices at the airport, back when I worked there, that I swiped for use in my office (I didn't feel like bringing mine from home). I should have taken it with me when I left that job. The keys had such a good feel to them. - April Russo
I really loved my TI-85 when I was in school (and after, until I left it in a cart at Walmart accidentally, and lost it forever). Not sure I really remember any particular models of calculator I've used since; I mostly just use whatever's built into my computer or phone. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
When I was in school there weren't any. Good thing I was an English major. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
TI-84 Plus Silver Edition. <3 - Jenny H. from Android
HP-48 S, although I never used it to its full potential. - Brian Johns
Still have my HP-32S, vintage 1988 model, as my go-to calculator. I keep non-RPN calculators on hand for the other librarians. - Elizabeth Brown
I liked using my graphing calculator in high school and college. I forget if it was a TI-80 or TI-81. Probably the latter. - John (bird whisperer)
HP-48 S, never needed its full potential. - Angelo
I really liked the TI-68 I had in high-school, and hated the switch to the graphing calculators (I did a lot better with the math itself when forced to graph by hand.) - Jennifer Dittrich
I had and still have a casio fx-4500 - Amit Patel
TI-81. The only calculator I ever used in high school and college. - Bren from iPhone
Hp 11c reverse polish. - Joe from iPod
HP-48GX. - Julian
In school? I had a really good K&E slide rule. Never did learn all of its functions, but got really good at mentally calculating magnitudes. - Walt Crawford
*wonders what a reverse Polish calculator is and if it's anything like reverse cowgirl* - Spidra Webster
I'm with the oldsters in this group. Personal calculators had just become available when I took statistics the summer after graduating college, but they were so very expensive then. A few people in the class had them, but I still used a slide rule. - Anne Bouey

Walt Crawford
Last night, went with wife, brother, sister-in-law to Campo di Bocce (restaurant & bocce ball courts), which my wife & I go to once a month or so, for my birthday dinner...partly because CdB gives people a full four-course dinner, anything on the menu (appetizer, salad, entree, dessert) for free on their birthday. And it's a pretty good restaurant.
Happy Birthday! I think you've caught up with me, now. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
The question here: How many restaurants do this? (Yes, I can get a free slice of pie at Shari's; not quite the same as a $28 12oz. New York steak, done beautifully, a great caesar salad, a heart-stopping chocolate torte--I skipped the appetizer, and brought half the steak home. All free, with the waitress encouraging me to order an appetizer as well. Up to $50 in free food.) - Walt Crawford
Is this level of customer good will common elsewhere? Rare? Unheard of? - Walt Crawford
That's a really good deal. But you should get the appetizer and give it to somebody. Like me. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
There was a chain restaurant in Michigan that gave you a small free birthday cake on your birthday. I worked two doors down from one, and there were three engineers at my company who shared a birthday and went there every year. They kept looking for a fourth amongst the new employees, but never found one. [EDIT: the restaurant was Bill Knapp's.] - Betsy
m9m: Last year, actually, my brother ordered two appetizers as a dinner (which turned out to be too much food)...and when the bill arrived, they'd zeroed out his appetizer. For anyone who lives in the area: The tiramisu is probably a better dessert than the chocolate torte, but once a year, I go for pure evil. And since my wife and brother both got the tiramisu as part of their $23 three-course dinners, I got some of that anyway. - Walt Crawford
[Technically, the three-course dinner includes a "half-size" salad and dessert--but half-size is more than enough in both cases.] - Walt Crawford
Oh, and yes, you're right, m9m: I'm back to being the same age as you are. (At least I think so. Let's say that next year I have to make some 403(b) decisions...) - Walt Crawford
I often order the senior citizen version of a meal - for the lower price and the reduced size - and discover that the kitchen just makes the same size meal anyway. Or my kid orders a small thing I actually want, I order a senior meal, and we swap. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
I like that place! And my birthday is hopefully coming up soon. <thinks> - Brian Johns

In about a month I have a bead show and I'm struggling to come up with 'new' things. Many of the 'cute' beads I make are 3D and in my opinion more collectible than wearable so this weekend I worked on the wearable aspect and came up with these bears which should lay flat. Yea or Nay? Also, owls and penguins because I can :-)
bearcrew.jpg
Show all
I'm also thinking turtle neck sweaters for the polar bears - hee! - Shannon - GlassMistress
Love 'em. For a flat bead, why not a turtle? - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
Yea. All of them. - Betsy
All of these are adorable. I still rave about my lamp pull to anyone who will listen - maybe smaller versions of that design, too? (Mine is about the size of a 50 cent piece.) - Corinne L
Shannon - GlassMistress
The dinner fairy whiffed. I'm going to be forced to cook something but for the life of me I don't know what. The only meat in the house is frozen chicken wings, we are out of pasta, there are two red potatoes, cans of corn and tomatoes, frozen green beans, and tortilla chips. veggie nachos?
There is a pan of brownies I made today, and milk. It's the top contender :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
Nachos, wings, and brownies. Sounds like a party to me! - LB: Unable to Can from Android

One Simple Activity Could Undo the Effects of Sitting http://mic.com/articles/98478/one-simple-activity-could-undo-the-effects-of-sitting via @micnews
A new study published in the journal Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise says that one five-minute walk after an hour of sitting can counteract side effects like "higher rates of chronic diseases, including heart disease and diabetes, to immediate effects such as strained and sore muscles," all of which have been linked to too much sitting, as Mic's Erin Brodwin previously reported. - Steve C Team Marina

Lady whipped into our parking lot in a GMC Yukon that she cant park straight. Fiddled with her hair a bit then got out with her dog and walked him around in our grass - yes he pooped. She is now cleaning out her truck and tossing the trash into our parking lot .... I'm having trouble staying in my seat.
Get out there and kindly hand her a trash bag. And wait. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
I like m9m's suggestion. But take a photo of her and her car license plate first. - Spidra Webster
OMG my uncle is a bigger ass then they were. The lady was waiting for someone at the repair shop across the street (someone dropping off a vehicle is my take). Once they loaded up and left Unc walked out, picked up the trash, walked it across the street and threw it in that business's yard. I'm left just rolling my eyes. Jeebus! - Shannon - GlassMistress

(Image credit: Vintage 1968 Texaco Paper Road Map of Oregon, on sale for $3 on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/listing...) - Stephen Mack
My answer: Nope. Not for at least five years now. - Stephen Mack
Yes - one of WA, one of the US and Canada. - Jennifer Dittrich from FFHound!
Yes, many from all over the place. - Todd Hoff
I still use paper maps. - John (bird whisperer)
yes. I keep one of Michigan roads just in case. I haven't needed it often. But the few times I have, it's been invaluable. - MoTO: Team Marina
Of course. I didn't get a smart phone till a year ago and I much prefer a paper map. - Betsy
Nope - Glen Campbell
Nope. They're under my bed. - Anika
yes. - Lnorigb
Nope. - Louis Gray
Yes. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
For the record my car also has a tape deck. - Steve C Team Marina
probably ones I printed out from Google and neglected to throw away. - Steele Lawman
yes, I keep an atlas of the US in there - ellbeecee
Yes, several. - Anne Bouey from iPhone
Not anymore. I do have an atlas at home for getting a general sense of places I might want to visit. - Amit Patel
I should add, part of the reason I have a couple of paper maps are the couple of times I've been stuck somewhere needing directions when either my phone has died, or there's no service. - Jennifer Dittrich
Yes, mostly for CA, but I have east coast ones at home in the file cabinet. I think there are a few AAA guidebooks in the car, too, come to think of it. - Corinne L
Yes, absolutely, city maps where we drive frequently. CSAA even mails maps (since the nearby office closed). - Walt Crawford
I still have some Hagstrom county books from the 90's, but no car. :P - April Russo
I don't think so. It's entirely possible there are still one or two atlases in the ex-wife's car, though (which used to be mine). - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
I didn't realize it but yes, we do. Joy actually pulled one out of the glove box the other day and began using it! - Jim: with more caffeine!

How many times have you been summoned to jury duty?
Once I've had to show up. Once just called in. Once was breastfeeding. (And how awesome is it that they had that exemption!) - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
I'd tell you, but then I'm afraid I'd jinx it. *whispers* (zero) - lris
In Virginia, I had to show up once a week for the duration (I forget how long), but I was able to beg off after three weeks because I was moving out of state. In Illinois, Cook County gave me a postponement because I was going to be out of town, then another postponement because I was going to be out of the country, and I'm still waiting for them to call again even though it's been years. - Betsy
Twice that I can remember. Happened earlier this year & got exemption because I'm self employed. - Corinne L
At least six. Served the first two times. Not needed/web checking the next three times. Not needed, but had to spend a morning in the waiting room this time. (There may have been other "not needed" cases.) - Walt Crawford
'Course, in Santa Clara County "not needed" may mean checking twice a day for a full week. In Alameda County, if they don't need you that *day* you're done for the year. - Walt Crawford
I am working on my 4th. I was to go during my vacation so I was able to postpone until February. At least this time I will be as a non smoker. - Janet from FFHound!
Now on my 8th time. 2nd summons in less than a year, too. - Anika
About 6. I've never served on a jury, though. - John (bird whisperer)
5ish, served once. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Got many notices, had to show up maybe 4-5 times, served once. It's one day/one trial. That trial lasted 3 days. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
Once. They finished selection before it ever got to me. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
Once. I told them that I could not be objective about a lawsuit claiming that a landlord in Bedstuy had not installed/maintained adequate safety measures for tenants, leading to someone getting shot. Because, duh. - Meg VMeg
Never. - Alix May
Once for "standard" jury duty but when i called the day before, I was told I didn't have to report. Another time I got a letter that I was on call for the year for grand jury duty, but never was called. - Galadriel C. from Android
About ten. I've never been picked. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
6 or 7 times. I've called in most times and not been selected (actually went to the physical location once), but twice now I've pleaded out because of medical issues that would make it physically hard to have the stamina to be on a jury. - Spidra Webster
Three. I got out of two because I was in my third trimester of pregnancy. The third I showed up for (Clark County, Nevada- bigtime fun), but the defendant plead while I was waiting, so that was that. - Jenny H. from Android
Once. I showed up and got routed to a few different buildings before being excused. I was really looking forward to serving too! - Brian Johns
Oh, and I only went downtown four times. The first time I was 19 & was hoping I'd get picked to serve. The other times I was all, please don't pick me, you ain't gon pay me enough to miss work! - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Never and I've always been a little disappointed by that. - joey
Twice, but my cohort didn't get called in either time. - Jennifer Dittrich
Once. I let them know that I am not a citizen and therefore can't, and they quit. - Uli
Summoned maybe 12 times, reported 8 times, served 5. - Anne Bouey
0! - Eivind
2 or 3, never served. - MoTO: Team Marina
Disappointingly, none. - Mark H
only once, many years ago when I still lived in SC. All the civil cases settled before we were sat and the criminal case plead out. That was about 15 years ago. - Jonathan Disher

I am looking at ceiling fans right now to replace one that got dislodged in our earthquake. - Anne Bouey
I hope all these ceiling fan haters live with heat flashes.....they will change their tune. ;) - Janet from FFHound!
Ceiling fans are pretty useful. - John (bird whisperer)
I think it stems mostly from the fans that they had were rather ugly and wouldn't go with what they were changing. That being said, I enjoy ceiling fans and there are some amazingly beautiful fans that are available. But I can't stand popcorn ceilings... - Chris Topher
Older houses with high ceilings do well with ceiling fans. There's someplace for the heat to rise, and lots of clearance. Things are out of proportion in a more recent, low-ceilinged house. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
Popcorn ceilings and shag carpets are going to be a thing again soon. Mark my words. ;) - Ken Morley
... I forgot avocado appliances. :) - Ken Morley
Have both and hate both. I'll deal with the fans, but popcorn ceiling has looked tacky since I was a kid. This is the first place I've lived in in almost 24 years that has popcorn ceilings. So gross. - Anika
Another decade and my 1993 decor is going to be awesome! - Ken Morley

Can't stand popcorn ceilings!!! The popcorn ceiling here makes the rooms look gloomy (all the shadows) and hold smooshed bug remains. I like ceiling fans better than ac though. - Heather

How do you work with someone for 6 years and not know how to say their name correctly? Also, why is Yvonne (EE-von) so hard for some people to say? ::grumble::
*fist bump* - Corinne L
Wow, rude. Like how hard is it to just listen and learn? I'll never understand that. - Jennifer Dittrich
On the other hand...why aren't I more assertive??? - YvonneM
A guy I worked with for 15 years still doesn't know my last name. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
There are a LOT of people where I work whose names I do not know. Some who have told me their names, I can't remember. It takes a while to sink in for me. Non-English sounding names are the ones I have the most difficulty with. - Ian May
Ian, that helps. I work in a small-ish library and most of us interact pretty regularly, but hey. - YvonneM
My sister-in-law is from New Jersey and her name is Yvonne. Everyone there pronounces her name "Ya-von." It might have to do with their accent. Yet when I ask her and say "ee-VON," she says I'm saying it correctly. LOL. - Trish R
My mom had a childhood friend called (phonetically) Wy-vo-na. The girl's mother had read the name in a book and that's how she thought it was pronounced. Spelled "Yvonne" of course. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
I had a friend tell me, after 2 years, that I'd been mispronouncing her name. Talk about awkward. - YvonneM
I got an invitation to my SIL's bridal shower yesterday and my name is spelled incorrectly... - Melly - #TeamMarina
