#nanowrimo Pre-Nov 1 nano novel musing or it's only October 22 which story idea do I like better. The story I want to tell is modern day magic mixed with coming of age in suburbia. One idea is of course our young protagonist trained by modern day wizard. I have a "meets cute" so it starts nicely BUT of course the older wiser mentor
Can sorta kinda take over story from our young hero. Plus of course rules are boring - WarLord
Second idea, the protagonist finds a Grimoire and teaches himself to be wizard. This has advantages of more mistakes and hapless experiments as he works his "painful" way into competence. Plus maybe nice conflicts with wizards and any wizard ruling council as he blunders about. I kinda like "B" better BUT - WarLord
The Grimoire the wizard cook book is essential and how I get that book into his hands is driving me nuts. I'm thinking a book sale maybe a box of books for $10- $20 bucks but again how to make the Grimoire be ignored by all until Dylan finds it??? - WarLord
I like the idea of stumbling on a book. Dylan could be cleaning someone's attic/basement/garage and find it, the person doesn't know what it is so they let him keep it. Could be at a book sale, tucked away behind some other things, maybe planted there for him to find? Box lot at an auction that he sees something he wants and the book is at the bottom with a few others. The cover could be grimy and indistinct, which is why people ignore it. - Heather
^ that one's easy. It looks like an ordinary book to everyone except that kid. He has the "gift" so he can read it. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
I thought about "ordinary book" thing... I like cleaning out the trash.... Dylan does good deed adventure ensues. I thought about box of books also containing enclosed book stand that concealed this book... I dunno taking out the trash maybe with a side of ordinary looking book - WarLord
Of course maybe I need to expand my "palette of colors" I mean kid discovers magic, adventures ensue - where have we read that before? If I go with "taking out the trash" literally anyone could discover the book. An adult, not necessarily an orphan or sullen loner etc etc That makes an accidental wizard a very different story - WarLord

No longer in production, as of 2013. I still have one of the originals that came out in 2007. - Julian

Walking behind a man wearing a suit, and thinking, "OMG YOU ARE WEARING SO MUCH FABRIC RIGHT NOW."
I don't get the return of the 3-piece suit. That's crazy and should have remained last seen in the 70s. - Stephen Francoeur
I love a three piece suit. If I'm gonna be uncomfortable, I wanna look really pretty great even with the jacket off. - Andrew C (✔)
(that said, I haven't worn a suit in years, not even to weddings.) - Andrew C (✔)
I love a gent in a suit. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed

three piece suits are fantastic. - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist
They look nice, but I always feel sorry for guys wearing them. - Jenny H. from Android
A properly tailored suit is really not at all uncomfortable to wear. - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist from iPhone
Now that you say this, I am seriously tempted to wear a three piece suit when I go in for my TSA Pre appointment. Also: a fedora. - Zamms
AND A STOGIE! - Zamms
Leave the blackjack at home, though. - Stephen Francoeur
Good point. It'd cause more problems than it solved. - Zamms
Suits are okay... in the winter. - John (bird whisperer)
What would you like it to be made of Meg? - Mr. The Jason Fleming
I love a man in a waistcoat *sigh* - Marina's Godmother :-)
I've got a Harris tweed jacket in my office, for which I paid $10 at a local thrift shop. It's so much better than a cardigan or the fleece pullover that I used to wear. - DJF
I say Hell Yes! to the three piece suit. I love a dapper looking gentleman. I think the point of all that fabric is to say, "Look at all this fabric I can afford to wear..." or something like that. - Laura Krier

Oh, interesting! Because coconut oil solidifies in cool temps it solidifies the chocolate. Whoa. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android

I think I'm going to have to make a change. In Firefox, I'm currently logged in using the FB login. I started Chrome today and it wants me to login (I guess that cookies expired).

I have seen the future and it's a restaurant like chipotle but for wood fired pizza.
its brand new, only been out for a wee bit i think - Sir Shuping is just sir
Blaze? We're getting one of those in Evanston. The college students are going to LOVE it - Hedgehog
There's MOD in Seattle ("made on demand"?) and 800 Degrees in LA also. edit: not 100% sure either one uses wood-fired ovens. - Andrew C (✔)
There are also the "Chipotle but for Asian food" genre: Asian Box, which I've only seen in the basement of Macy's in downtown SF and Shophouse, which actually is owned by Chipotle. - Andrew C (✔)
We've got Venti-Tre here: Like Chipotle but Italian. Supposed to be the first of a new chain. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
We have a place that's supposed to be like that, but their pizza ain't so hot. - Eric - It's My Thing
It's called "project pie." I thought it was going to be a pie restaurant, and was disappointed, but this is awesome! - Sarah G.
their pizza is amazing! - holly #ravingfangirl
We have the chain called Pieology, like that. Delish! - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
That "owned by" gets tricky, if you remember who used to own Chipotle. (Hint: You deserve a break today...) - Walt Crawford
I don't understand "like Chipotle but _____" what is Chipotle-like about these places? I thought Chipotle was just burritos & rice bowls? - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Starmama - I think it's more about "We have a bunch of ingredients, you choose everything that goes in your burrito/bowl." I assume the restaurant Sarah is describing was a place where they had pizza crust & toppings, and you went down a line saying "Yeah, put that on my pizza", then they put it in the fire for you. We had a restaurant right next to my office called Pancho Villa Express that I always used to describe as "Chipotle, except the food actually tastes good." :P - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
..and, yes, I think whoever said that Chipotle is "like Subway, but for burritos" (I know I saw that last night, but am not seeing it now - maybe it was a separate post) was spot-on. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
<record needle scratch>. You don't like chipotle?????? - Sarah G.
Is there something odd about *not* liking Chipotle? (I always thought the old ad line was funny: I'm sure lots of people didn't/don't like Sara Lee.) - Walt Crawford
ah I see, thanks. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Sarah - that is correct; I do not like Chipotle. I have plenty of empty boxes around here, so if I feel like eating some bland cardboard, I can do that without paying Chipotle for it. :P - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE

When in the world did they start putting pumpkin in EVERYTHING just cause Halloween is coming? Getting a tad ridiculous.
Even more so: it's not really about Halloween, but pumpkin pie and Thanksgiving. It'll only ratchet up another notch after Halloween is done. - Jennifer Dittrich
"Pumpkin spice" often only means the spices used in pumpkin pie, which -- without googling it -- I think are mostly nutmeg and cinnamon. - Andrew C (✔)
This was brought about by me receiving Trader Joe's monthly flyer today which includes the following: Pumpkin Bread & Muffin Mix, Pumpkin Spice Coffee, Pumpkin O's, Pumpkin Spiced Pumpkin Seeds, Country Pumpkin Spice Granola, Pumpkin Pancake & Waffle Mix, Pumpkin Ice Cream, Pumpkin Rolls w/Pumpkin Spice Icing, Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins, Gluten Free Pumpkin Pancake Mix, Mini Pumpkin... more... - rönin
That's a lot of pumpkin. - Rodfather from Android
Pumpkin flavored hot dogs. - Joe
Pizza with pineapple, pepperoni and pumpkin. - Joe
I am waiting for egg nog. - April Russo
Yeah, but TJ is real clear in the Frequent Flyer about going overboard with pumpkin (most of it actually pumpkin; they're clear when it's pumpkin spices, as in the pumpkin-spiced pumpkin seeds). They have fun with it. (Probably the only sales pitch I read cover-to-cover is TJ's Frequent Flyer, nowhere near monthly but always fun.) - Walt Crawford
Never mind. By the time it is Thanksgiving, pumpkin everything will be over and the the peppermint/candy cane flavored everything will be in full force. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed

Update for those who follow us here. We are done with chemo. My wife wanted to try a 5th chemo, but she is unable to handle it. the latest MRI is bad. Family has been visiting this week. They have seen a decline in the 5 day they were here. She probably has 3 months. My focus is on her quality of life. More family will be visiting.
I am actually in a good place, it was tougher when she lost her communication a few months ago. I have shifted into the caregiver mode. - Mike Nencetti
Oh, I'm sorry to hear that Mike. I'm glad that you and Beverly are surrounded by family at this time. - Anika

"A little something fun for your feet: whimsical and mismatched socks for adults. Knit in the U.S.A. with eco-friendly recycled cotton yarn, a pair of Solmate Socks is a unique gift for men and women of all ages, sure to bring a cheerful smile to the wearer. These whimsical, multi-patterned, and vibrant mismatched socks are also available for children and babies." - (Curtis) Alan Jackson from Bookmarklet
While I like the concept, I'm not sure how long I could handle the non-matchingness of them. Each round of laundry would be more maddening than the previous. lol - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
I actually could use those now. Although, I'm more of sock-folder than a stick-one-inside-another-er kind of person at least. :) - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
I love those clips since matching socks is my least favorite part of doing laundry. - LB put a spell on you. from Android
My husband bought a bunch of small safety pins and paired up all his socks as soon as he bought them. He'd pull them out of the drawer matched up, kept the pin at the top of one sock when he wore them (handy if he needed a pin at work) and pinned them together when he took them off. I'd wash them pinned together, ready for the next wearing. The pins never rusted. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed

So I'm doing Chipotle for lunch and I can order online. Except I want to pick it up right after they open. Which means there's no one there to take the order.
Fortunately, this is my biggest problem so far today. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson

Well, I did successfully, and without major pain, drop off 33 packages at the Post Office on my way. My Chipotle order was waiting for me and OMGWTFBBQ how did I not know to get a burrito bowl. This could feed a family of four! - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
Only if they can deliver using drones :P - imabonehead
Now you're talking! :) - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
We have a cluster of food places nearby - Chipotle, Pasta Mista, 5 Guys etc. They don't ordinarily deliver, but they belong to a delivery service that picks up orders from all of them and delivers to the nearby office buildings. Very handy! - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed

There should be more Yelp reviews for churches' communion bread and juice.
Besides not liking the styrofoam wafers for taste and texture reasons, I don't like that they're not part of a larger piece of bread that's broken / portioned out right before serving. - Andrew C (✔)
Interesting. One of the churches I attended, church attendants baked the communion sheets before service. They were like giant roti. Then during communion the reverend would have the sheets in the basket and break it off for people. - Anika
The church I grew up in serves a kind of very hard, cracker-like flatbread that's just broken by pressing on it. Then at one point our English language service pastor got experimental -- we're an evangelical church, so not very liturgical -- but he would have pretty fancy (for our denomination) robes, and we'd do communion all sorts of different ways each month. - Andrew C (✔)
I think at one point we had a sourdough that was torn into pieces by the congregation one at a time. - Andrew C (✔)
My old church had those little round "styrofoam" wafers, but we managed to dissolve them with the wine, which was sweet port wine served in teensy glasses. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
My church had the traditional yucky Styrofoam wafers. Which of course the first time I ever tasted one was during my First Communion. And when the priest placed the wafer on my tongue, I refused to put my tongue back in my mouth because it tasted so awful. My godparents and the priest watched in horror as I basically re-enacted the beluga caviar scene from Big right there at the altar. - Hookuh Tinypants
In fairness, they should've realized church wasn't my gig when I kept referring to the Apostle's Creed as Apollo's Creed and telling the other kids that it was actually Pontius PILOT and he flew bible planes for Jesus. - Hookuh Tinypants
Heck, m9m, at least your church *had* wine. I grew up Methodist. Grape juice is just not the same. - Walt Crawford

It's Monday and raining. I woke up around 6-ish and decided to stay up, get dressed (in outside clothes), and go somewhere as practice for getting back to regular living hours again (maybe, someday). Walked down to the corner store for a few things. Point of the story is, I successfully talked to people in a nice way before I had any coffee in me.
on a rainy Monday morning just after sun-up, I might add. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra

I'm still recovering from the shock myself. Perhaps after I've had some coffee, I can reflect on what made this phenomenon possible. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
We are not worthy - MoTO: Team Marina
also the outing reminded me that the crossing guard on my corner is wonderful. don't know her name yet, but I can tell she's a lovely person by the way she always says hello to me, even though I have nothing to do with getting kids to or from the school down the street. I see her once in awhile on the other end of the school day; totally forgot that kids would be going to school around now bc I'm never out at this hour. So I got to see her and exchange comments about a rainy Monday morning. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
There has to be a certain amount of awesome in one's person to want to be a crossing guard, IMO. They sure don't do it for the $$ - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Nine's crossing guard was awesome. She gave all the kids candy canes on St Nicholas' Day.One day my mom was out walking and stepped off the curb in front of "Ms Gert" and she yelled "Hey! Susannah's Nana! Wait until I cross you! She knew Susannah's name AND her Nana. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
When Susannah started first grade, Ms Gert said "I remember you from when you carried her to the pediatrician in the Snugli." - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed

Surreal occurrence of the evening: Being hand-delivered documents for immediate signature and initialing. That happens outside of movies?
Did someone serve you papers? - Meg VMeg
Ohhhhhhhhhh the house :) - Meg VMeg
Heh, yeah, I'm fine. It was just some extra stuff for the house. - lris
House-buying is surreal in so many ways. (Does your realtor prepare a CD-ROM with all the documents? Even so, you wind up with a thick stack of stuff that YOU CAN NEVER THROW AWAY. Much of it on legal-size paper, just to make it more fun to file.) I'll bet fax will be involved... - Walt Crawford
I did not get a CD ROM. Then again, we live in the Midwest. But I didn't have to fax anything. - laura x from iPhone
This is exciting! - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
I've never gotten a CD-ROM, but I do have several large stacks of legal sized paper buried in the bottom of a desk drawer. Also, yes, fax was involved. ugh. Good luck!! - ~Courtney F
Oh yeah, you're required to use a fax machine at least once in the process of buying a house. It's, like, a federal statute or something. - Catherine Pellegrino
Oh no... That might be a deal-breaker - lris
*whispers* Never had to use a fax when we bought our house. -> - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
You might want to check your deed, Jaclyn. Seems like it might be possible you don't own that house. - lris
actual papers? we did it all through PDFs. - kendrak
Jeez. We went to a bank, signed a bunch of papers and never saw them again. Just mailed 'em a check every month until the house was paid for. The good old days. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
So in California you get PDFs but still have to fax, and in Iowa you get paper but don't have to fax. I am confused. I know I've been making mortgage payments for 3 years, though.... - laura x
We had a stack of papers to sign with the builders, but all the paperwork we did with the lender was electronic. In fact, they were like "Please don't mail or fax us anything. We prefer e-mailed scans." - Hookuh Tinypants
the only papers we signed were for the loan documents, and that was at the mortgage brokers' office. everything else was done electronically. kind of rad. - kendrak
"In California" is a little broad. For every one of the houses we've bought or sold, we've had loads of actual paper...the last two times, the CD-R contains copies of that paper. Probably depends on the realtors and local agencies involved. (I would say "county or city," but Livermore is in Alameda County, and I assume Kendra's also in Alameda County.) - Walt Crawford
Ah. One other reason we have lots of paper is that the mortgage broker has zero paper, because the latest transactions were all-cash. Which seems to confound some title companies... - Walt Crawford
Has difficulty imagining owning a house --> - Brent Schaus from iPhone

Oh, do I get to wear my tux with tails and cummerbund matching Chuck Taylors again? (Yes, I'm dodging the original question.) - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
Corinne - We will all girl-dance together! - Katy S
I don't do proms - Kevin Johnson
Exactly, Katy! Cue the 80s music and bad 80s dance moves - I am READY! *looks for AquaNet and a fluffy taffeta dress* - Corinne L

Never went to a prom. - Friar Will
You, of course. - Holly's favorite Anna
I will arm wrestle Hedgie for a prom date with B!!! - Janet from FFHound!
I would want entirely too many of y'all to be my date. - LB put a spell on you. from Android
I first read that as 'take to pr0n' and was like 0_0. - Ken Gidley
Short list: either Zulema, Jennifer Dittrich, Tamara, Val, or Kristin. Whichever would want to go with an old bunneh. - Steven Perez
I think Lisa would be a fun prom date. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I have to pick just one??! - Melly - #TeamMarina
I'd do the same thing I did in high school: skip prom, and go to King's Dominion (or, maybe I'd change things up and go to Hershey Park) with my best friend(s), instead. Who's coming with me? - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
who would i be taking? you mean who would be on the long list of girls (since we're talking high school here) telling me to get lost? i think it'd be short only cos i'd give up after the third attempt. i'd be the mopey long-haired dude in black hanging out next to one of the PA columns at the dance. - Big Joe Silence
Sir Shuping. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Joe Silence. - Melly - #TeamMarina
The Friar (is that allowed?) - Melly - #TeamMarina
Melly and t-ra would be among them, that's for certain. others as well, but i.. i... *stammers, then runs away backstage to read the manual for the mixing console for comfort* - Big Joe Silence
Not Eric, because he'd be at Sammy Hagar's B'day Bash without me. - Melly - #TeamMarina

Yes, Melly, it is allowed. If only you had been in my high school. :^) - Friar Will
Stag. I'd go stag. It's for the best, really ;) - Brent Schaus
At my school, !984 is known as "The Year Without a Prom" because nobody wanted to go. We don't do proms. :P That was the year they started doing the Senior Cruise, because it was easier to drag us all on a ship and take us out to sea for the night, after graduation, than it was to get us to buy a prom ticket. - April Russo
Y'all make me blush!! - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
I would ask Shevonne to join the girl's party with me. I'm surprisingly shy when it comes to asking men out sadly. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Amanda. She's my home girl for always and eternity. But I'll dance with EVERYONE. I love dancing. :D - Jenny H. from Android
^I'm on FF... - Eivind
Hush, boy. SOOKEH'S MAAAAAHN. Er, I mean. JENNEH'S MAAAAAHN. :D - Hookuh Tinypants
:DDD - Jenny H.
Johnny, but he's wearing the dress. - Mo Kargas
Megan I think. She'd probably be singing with the band and I'd have lots of cred but then I'd spend most of my time spiking the punch with Scott and I'd try and look up Johnny's dress and there'd be a scene and I'd get in trouble. - MoTO: Team Marina
I'd definitely be in Corinne's Grrrl Crew and attempt to shimmy my way across the dance floor to have at least one dance with everyone I wanted to based on which song was playing. Depending on how much spike B and Scott managed to get into the punch, I'd probably try to steal more than a few kisses before the end of the night. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I just want an invite to the after party. - ♫Robot Chicken, Trainer♫
KeshaB623 of course. Happy Wife. Happy life. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Johnny's no stranger to donning frocks. - Melly - #TeamMarina
I'm in Corinne's girl gang and we're gonna take a bunch of ratchet pics. Then I'm going outside to smoke weed with whoever wants to have some. Then I go inside & dance with all the boys who came stag. Then I dance with the boys who have dates. Then I dance with their dates. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Don't kids go to Denny's and such after prom? I've never been but seen drunk fancy dressed kids at all nite joints plenty of times. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Starmama is an equal opportunity prom attendee. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
I didn't go to my senior prom (heart broken because the girl I wanted to go with was forbidden from going with me by her parents). I regret that to this day. My friends said they had a blast. I ended up going with her the summer after my Freshman year though. Took one of her friends as a favor to her but still got to dance with my girl so I was on cloud 9. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Do you have to have a date to go to prom? I went solo to my senior formal - my date got in trouble and wasn't allowed to go (he later ended up in jail). - Melly - #TeamMarina
No, Melly. And you are definitely in the girl gang. Though if you keep sneaking off with boys we are going to talk about you. *stops to pose for ratchet pic with Starmama & t-ra* *whispers about boys by punch bowl* - Corinne L
Someone took my date, and no one asked me so ICE CREAM at my house :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
me and Starmama apparently do prom the same way. of course. also, I'd be plotting how to get Shannon into a slow dance with her dream date. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
Colleen. I never went to my prom, actually. - Jed from iPhone
Penguin - she could teach me to dance followed by Anne, Jessie, Kelly, Andi, and Tamara as they are all confirmed fun. Oh and Jenny for nature brains and superwoman stories. - Steve C Team Marina
Can I be the DJ? - Steven Perez
You & Eric should both DJ! - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Dream date might hurt himself laughting ;-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
Eric - It's My Thing
Did you ever own a 45 record? If you did, name one.
45s.gif
To my shame: Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft - The Carpenters. - Friar Will
Blondie - One Way or Another. Bought at the drug store in my grandma's town. I bought Doobie Brothers - Minute by Minute at the same time. I bought them solely on the way the label looked (MCA and WB). - Eric - It's My Thing
Sure. My first 45s were my mom and aunt's old 45s from the '50s. Including a Sun 45 of "Great Balls of Fire". First 45 I received as a gift was "Fly, Robin, Fly". First 45rpm I bought with my own $ was "Walking on Thin Ice" by Yoko Ono (I bought plenty of LPs before that...but I was 15 before I bought a 45.) - Spidra Webster
Rock Around the Clock. Wake Up, Little Susie. Every Day. Peggy Sue. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
Disco Duck. - Joe
Pink Floyd - Another Brick In The Wall Pt.2 (can't remember the B-side), The Beatles - Penny Lane/Strawberry Fields Forever (mono), Tubby The Tuba... quite a few more, not including the fsckloads of "PROMOTIONAL USE ONLY" and/or "NOT FOR SALE" label-owned 45s i inherited from my maternal grandfather who was a radio engineer for WNBC and later WMCA in NY from the 30s til the 70s. - Big Joe Silence
Wow, those WNBC era 45s must be quite the collection. - Eric - It's My Thing
"One Of My Turns" was the B-side to that PF single. yeah, there's some amazing stuff in his collection. also alot of his personal 78s in those boxes as well. too bad i no longer have a turntable that plays 78s! - Big Joe Silence
The first music I ever bought were two 45s. I Yam What I Yam by Robin Williams with He Needs Me by Shelly Duvall on the B side. Lady by Kenny Rogers. I bought them at Payless Drug Store. I must have been 6 years old. - Rodfather from Android
We have a whole bunch of them in the living room. I couldn't tell you what's on any of them. When I was kid? Damn...I know there was an EWF one. The hundreds of others? Never got to touch them. - Anika
Karma Kameleon. - bentley
"But Not Tonight" by Depeche Mode. Among others. - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist
Some Hiphop 45s, Big Daddy Kane - Smooth Operator. Tone Loc - Wild Thing, Young MC - Bust a Move, Three Times Dope - Funky Dividends (which got warped sitting in a hot car). - Eric - It's My Thing
True Blue by Madonna - limited edition blue vinyl. I still have it & all my 45s from the 70s & 80s. - Corinne L
The strangest one I own may be a European Hiphop group BVSMP - I Need You where the lyrics are split between the A side and B side. - Eric - It's My Thing
Half the 45s I bought were Doctor Who related, apparently. - bentley
Redbone "Come & Get Your Love" - Gabrielle from FFHound(roid)!
So many 7 inches! It's the punk rock way. Or used to be anyhow. My first one? I think it was the Billy Idol Sweet Sixteen single? - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
i still occasionally get 45s (both singles and EPs) in the post from current bands via friends. it's not a dead format! - Big Joe Silence
Janet Jackson - Control. - Jenny H. from Android
I hoard them like Pokemon. - kendrak from Android
I still have one. An aria and a duet from Händel's Messiah sung by Mom. - Uli
Crimson and Clover (Tommy James and the Shondells) - Janet
My first 45 was American Pie. I had good taste even back then. - Glen Campbell
All By Myself--Eric Carmen. - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
I still do own a few. The first 45 I bought on my own (not pilfered from my mom's collection) was Sweet Home Alabama (I was going through a phase, I've since cured myself of it). - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
So many to choose from: Cut The Cake by AWB comes to mind. - MoTO: Team Marina
When i was a lil kid I used the 45 to listen to the Fairy Tales using this http://www.ildeposito.it/img... - Xabaras (G.O.)
Back in the mid 80s, we had a jukebox filled with 45s. Luckily for us, the local Sound Warehouse had 45s, so finding party music was never a problem. - Steven Perez
I still have about 15 of my 45s. First one that came to mind is Minnie Riperton - Here We Go. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I think my first 45 was Rocky Mountain High. My brother had the 45 for 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover - it was in constant play. - Elizabeth Brown
Honky Tonk Women by the Rolling Stones. - Son of Groucho
"Funkytown" by Lipps Inc. I still have all my 45's along with all of my parents' 45's. Love that stuff. <3 - Hookuh Tinypants
"Incense and Peppermints" by the Strawberry Alarm Clock was the first record I ever bought. I would have been 12. I can't remember what was on the flip side. - Ken Morley
I'm pretty sure the first 45 I got was "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" by Elton John and Kiki Dee in 1976. - Steele Lawman
Yes, Steele, that was the one we listened to incessantly. I also remember just where it developed a skip. Good times. - Mama Lawson
<3 mom. - Steele Lawman
The first one I ever bought was Paul McCartney's Mull of Kintyre in '77 or so.. My brother and I loved the song. But we hated the B-Side, Girl's School. - Stephen Mack
Panama/Drop Dead Legs by Van Halen - Brent Schaus
Passion by Bang The Drum. - Melly - #TeamMarina
I have tons of them. Just grabbing the first one (in the dark): Tequilla - The Champs / Walkin' After Midnight - Patsy Cline - April Russo
My radio show right now is nothing but. - kendrak from Android
I'll name 3: Julian Lennon- Too Late For Goodbyes/Let Me Be, Tears for Fears- Shout/??, Power Station- Get It On/Go to Zero. And I'm pretty sure all three of them are either in our garage or my parent's basement! - Elena

My wife knows. She shudders with fear when I shop. - Eric - It's My Thing
Wifey plays this game. I tease her for not using the expensive piece of technology in her purse known as a smartphone to make said lists. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Paper list when I "wing it" it ends badly #ohshiny - WarLord
Partial paper list and wing the rest. - John (bird whisperer)
I've done a mix - sadly, I'm not even organized about trying to be organized. Phone app seems to work best when I use it. - Jennifer Dittrich
I used to use Evernote a lot, but now it's almost always post-it notes. - Jenny H. from Android
Grocery IQ app - Christina Pikas from iPhone
Paper. Didn't like using an app. - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
Paper list most of the time. I do leave it at home about 50% of the time. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
I have the Safeway app which has a list, but I find when I'm in the store I have to keep stopping, scrolling, finding stuff...and I don't get a good signal in two of the stores I shop at. So I find myself still making paper lists. And leaving them home more often than not. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Mostly wing it. I got rid of my shopping apps awhile ago and use one of the notepads on my phone for longer lists. - Anika
Paper list, both for Safeway and for the monthly Target run. (But then, we don't have a smartphone so apps aren't in the picture.) The Safeway list is on the back side of the card on which I write that week's meaningful J4U specials, and that one *always* gets taken with us. - Walt Crawford
I use Color Note. It has a check list function that's perfect for this. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
I keep a small (6'x9") clipboard on a hook in the kitchen. Add to list as needed, take the whole clipboard with me and prop it in the cart. Last week I left it at the checkout. Got it back this week. I had crossed off all the the items except TP. Somebody had written "Oh no!" next to it. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
We use a small, dry-erase board on the fridge, then snap a phone pix before heading to the store. - Ken Morley
I have a meal-planning program I use (Plan to Eat) that tracks my pantry and spits out a grocery list once I've dropped in my meals for the week, so I just use that (I actually transcribe it into a little notebook I keep in my purse rather than print out a sheet every week; I prefer to organize it by the layout of the store I go to). Tried using apps but it just wasn't the same. - Hookuh Tinypants
I resemble this image. But also I don't usually buy much at a time especially as only shopping for one. - Deborah Fitchett

i need to go do some measuring in my co-worker's area, because i'll be moving over there after she retires next month. she's not there right now, but i feel sort of weird. like going through grandma's things and saying what you are going to take while she is still alive. :P

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

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

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

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
