Just coached a young man through a text fight with his gf. I feel good about it. Bringing love th the world one silly tiff at a time. Ha.
There may be a consultant job in that. At the very least a couple viral profiles about how there's someone who makes a living as a consultant advising people through their texted tiffs. - Spidra Webster

I'm jealous of my friend's nanny. She gets to spend lots of time with my friend AND her kids. Maybe *I* should be her nanny! Lol!

Inspired by listening to "Vitalogy" after many years... what are the albums that you really just didn't like when you first heard them, but after time passed you came around to really appreciate?
most of the ones i currently like, actually. - Big Joe Silence
The first couple of Ani Difranco albums I ever heard fit this category, too. - Bren
Ænima by Tool. Meh when my dad first played it for me, but it's one of my favorites now. - Jenny H.
I think, more than albums, I have songs that I instinctively hate when I hear them but then mysteriously grow on me. "Straight Lines" by Silverchair and "Supermassive Black Hole" by Muse come to mind... - Jenny H.
Bitches Brew. I hated it viscerally as a teenager. It grew on me over time. and Sonic Youth. everybody loved Goo and I just couldn't get into it. Then I heard 100% from Dirty, and it gave me pause. Now I love both records as a reminder of those times and of their own merit. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
If we start talking jazz, I can tell you my ear was not refined sufficiently to enjoy it as a youth, try as I might. I bought "Saxophone Colossus" when I was 15, hoping to impress my more astute musician friends, but couldn't listen for more than a few minutes. Now I love it. One of the perks of aging, I guess. - Bren from iPhone

If only there was a way to only work four days a week and still be considered full-time without working 12 hours a day. Maybe I should try to figure out how not to have to work 5½ days/week first, though.
Even if I weren't allergic to 12 hours shifts, I don't think there's any outpatient setting I could work 12 hours/day that isn't an urgent care or emergency department anyway. - Victor Ganata

"That feeling—the not knowing, the longing for knowing, and the eventual answer—is love and youth to me." — Ta-Nehisi Coates
"And I was ignorant. I felt as if someone had carried me off at night, taken me out to sea, and set me adrift in a life-raft. And the night was beautiful because it held all the things I would never know, and in that I saw my doom—the time when I could learn no more." - Victor Ganata
"In my long voyage through this sea of language, that was my first sighting of land. I now knew how much I didn’t know. The feeling of discovery and understanding that came from this was incredible. It was the first moment when I thought I might survive the sea." - Victor Ganata

I had to give my mom and dad their dog back. I'm kind of sad he isn't here to meet me after work :D

Out did myself in the cooking department tonight. Homemade rissoles, parmesan potatoes, and seasoned baked zucchini. #burp #fb

Now what is a 'rissole' in your parts? There are several definitions over here ;-) - 'H'institches #TeamMarina
Somewhere in between a hamburger patty and a meatball! Usually something along the lines of minced beef, egg, breadcrumbs, seasoning, and maybe some finely diced veggies, shaped into balls then flattened slightly. - Melly - #TeamMarina

"I‘ve been on the lookout for a truly authentic 1950s diner since I arrived in California. I finally found it, driving down Wilshire Boulevard and screeching to a halt as soon as I locked eyes on its mighty mid-century neon facade. Only one problem: Johnie’s Coffee Shop isn’t serving any coffee and waffles today … or tomorrow. At a closer look through its windows, the booths of Johnie’s Coffee Shop are empty, the counters are covered in dust and you can be sure the sound and smell of sizzling bacon is only in your imagination. Welcome to Hollywood’s ghost diner…" - Mark H from Bookmarklet
I remember driving by Johnnie's on several occasions. L.A. has some really cool old diners & restaurants. - Corinne L

ok. let's try to balance this initial dread and terror reaction with some helpful reminders, shall we?
I remain employed with full benefits through October 1st. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I have access to enough money to cover 2 month's salary. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I'm a long-time member of a professional association that has a job bank and gives me access to a wide network. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I needed to update my resume anyhow. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
Good positioning. Now all energy to that new job! - Eric
The volunteer work and professional networking I started this year has exposed me to opportunities here in Athens I didn't know existed. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
every so often it's helpful to find out who your real friends are, and this will be one of those times. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I have an amazing support network of friends that have helped me through bad times in the past, so I have the moral support I'll need to make some tough decisions (provided I ask for it; that's on me). - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I have a Master's degree and a broad range of fairly marketable skills. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I paid off 2 credit cards so that chunk of cheddar can go elsewhere. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
job hunting expenses are tax deductible (ok, that one's a little lame, but whatever). - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra

since I finally got my taxes filed, some money will come back from the Fed even after paying what I owe the state and the tax preparer. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I was on a roll for awhile keeping a reasonable expense budget, then I blew it with beering and dining, and now I can get back on it for better overall regardless. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I've wanted/needed to get my 401k and IRA and other random accounts I've accumulated over the years organized for awhile and kept putting it off (b/c ugh) but now would be a good time to get my money house in order in general. I asked the tax guy about it and got a recommendation, so I have someone to call to help me get started sooner rather than later. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
my therapist will help me through this and will likely run a tab for me if I'm unable to pay for awhile as she's done in the past. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I'll be 40 in March. I am a grown-ass woman. I can handle my business. Not wanting to deal and not being able to deal are two very different things. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra

The idea that science and the humanities are diametrically opposed to one another has always struck me as a false dichotomy. It has always seemed to me that exegesis and empiricism have a lot in common.
Reality is the text, models and hypotheses are critical interpretations, and data are supporting evidence. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
I guess "natural" is implied when you say "science" in English, or am I misunderstanding you? - Eivind from Android
I'm not really sure. "Natural" is such an ill-defined term in English. - Victor Ganata
But "natural sciences" is still a fairly well defined branch in academia, isn't it? (Biology, physics, chemistry, geology, astronomy). I was asking because in Norwegian the word "vitenskap" (~science) is as applicable to pursuits in the humanities as to the natural sciences (naturvitenskap). - Eivind
I don't think they're by nature diametrically opposed although our society does a lot to put them in opposition starting with very early on grooming kids who want to go into the humanities to think they'll not be able to survive financially ("Want fries with that?" jokes) which is starkly in contrast to what they tell kids who want to go into STEM. I think there are some very general... more... - Spidra Webster
Historically people spoke of the 'science' of law; not sure they'd do that now. And the main qualifier to science is 'social'... People sometimes use the phrase 'hard sciences' for the 'natural sciences' and 'soft' for 'social/' - Pete : Team Marina
Yeah, I hear the hard vs. soft science distinction more often than the natural vs. social science distinction, but that distinction is relative - Victor Ganata
And "hard" is relative too. Math and physics look down on the wet sciences - DJF from Android
There's also the perspective that math isn't science :) - Victor Ganata

That's at least the third college library to open wihtout any books. The other two? Totally changed their plans. - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
"First of all, the university is allowing students to determine how to spend their $60 thousand library budget for e-books? What if a student clicks on a book that turns out to be utterly useless for everyone but that student? I'm not sure whether that's a good idea." <-- so cute I could die - Meg VMeg
it's a wee school, ya? - jambina
After doing a keyword search in a database, I have never seen a false hit that was an interesting alternative path to enlightenment. - Joe
To me, the most interesting line was this: "Old-fashioned books can be requested on loan from libraries at Florida's 11 other public universities." In other words, they wouldn't be doing this if the system weren't already chock-full of the paper books their students might need. And there's no mention of database access, which I'm assuming is coming in through the system as well. $60,000... more... - Kirsten
I think the $60k is just their DDA budget, not their full materials budget - what I love is they've basically said "here's when a purchase is triggered" - anyone want to bet on how fast they run through that $60k? - ellbeecee
I decided to do this a bit different - cold water is getting old.

For private business prison labor is like a pot of gold. No strikes. No union organizing. No health benefits, unemployment insurance, or workers’ compensation to pay.
