Recovering academic librarian, SAHM, knitter, yarn snob, & walking addict. My world is being overtaken by toys that make noise.
I still can't believe that I gave birth to such a beautiful kid.

Barry, my thoughts exactly. Scott & Mary are beautiful. :) - Laura
Awww. - Yolanda from Android
Her eyes slay me. <3 - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Agree 100%. - Mary B: #TeamMonique
I'm hooked on this new podcast called Sword & Scale. True Crime. Not for everyone. But extremely interesting.
I did all the puking today. All of it. Your share, and your share, and even your share. All the puking.
Yikes. - Steven Perez
Thank you. I hate puking. - Brian Johns
I do not like, but appreciate your taking this on for the rest of us. - Friar Will
Ugh. I am so sorry :( - Jennifer Dittrich from iPhone
Puking is the worst, worse than pain for me by a long shot - Steve C Team Marina
:( - Alix May
Thank you fro taking one for the team... Be well - WarLord
If I would have been at your side I could have pity puked. I puke at the sound of gagging. - Janet
If I had known, I would have drank more beer! Seriously, I hope you feel better today. - Eric - ill subliminal from iPhone
Nope, sorry, not my share. I did a lifetime's worth of puking about 2 years ago, when I had all that gall bladder trouble. Every time I ate the wrong thing with just a little bit too much fat, about 12 hours later I'd end up puking every 10 minutes, for about 6-12 hours. The pain would be gone in about 3-4 hours, but the puking would just keep on going. I can only describe the... more... - April Russo
Oh doll. So sorry. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
I did all the holiday baking supplies shopping today. I now will pass out.
Have I mentioned how much I love Troop Beverly Hills? Everything about this movie is fabulous.
Am I going to Hell because I thought this was funny? http://www.slate.com/blogs...
That's not the reason.....<g> - ♫Maurice the Trainer♫
I don't know if any of y'all are into Alternate Reality Gaming (ARG), but there is a kickstarter for Brian Humphrey's newest: The Lurker in the Library 2. His first game, The Lurker in the Library was fantastic, based on Lovecraft and had wonderful props and tools.
I encourage you to check it out or spread the word. The game doesn't look like it will start till next year, but now is the time to get involved. https://www.kickstarter.com/project... - Mary Carmen
I know it seems odd to "pay to play" but, if you've seen some of his other work, you can see that the money is very well spent and is funneled straight into the game. - Mary Carmen
You can see his other work here: http://games.brianhumphreys.com/ - Mary Carmen
Oh, and yes, I'm all in on this at the $100 level. When done well, these are amazing....and who doesn't want to be Agent Mulder every now and again???? - Mary Carmen
Oh, yeah, I'm in - though at $25 for now. I haven't done too many ARG's, but was just feeling nostalgic about Perplexcity the other day. - Jennifer Dittrich
I'm in big ;-) because I want to get mail that isn't bills or ads ;-) - Mary Carmen
My husband is a saint. A SAINT!
OMG SCOTT IS SIMON TEMPLAR! - Steven Perez from Android
*muted trumpet riff* - Big Joe Silence
That Geico Push It commercial makes me laugh every single time I see it.
The guy with the lawnmower at the end..."I'm pushing! I'm pushing it real good!" Gets me every time. :D - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed
This vanilla ice cream totally counts as a meal because I put some peanut butter in it for protein, right???? It is the only thing staying in my stomach at the moment and I figured if I puke later it won't taste horrific.
Wow I've been there #pickingmealsfortastecomingandgoing Be Well - WarLord
Hot. Cold. Hot.Cold. Hot. Cold. BODY PLEASE PICK A TEMP.
When did buying toys become so difficult? Skylanders? Trap Team?
As far as I can tell, this merges the whole Pokemon thing of catching new characters, but of course you have to have a trap for each of them. - Jennifer Dittrich
Skylanders prints money, so I distrust it on principle. It prints so much money that Disney and Nintendo rolled out their own versions (Disney Infinity and Amiibos). I really worry that the whole concept is a giant money sink for consumers/fans. - Andrew C (✔)
It totally is a giant money sink. I've been lucky to avoid Skylanders so far. My kid has asked for the Trap Team starter but he hasn't been too noisy about it since he's still rather engrossed in Minecraft. Plus we still haven't even finished the original Skylanders game which we got for free when my cousin gifted the entire set to us after the second set (Giants or something) came out. - rönin
My nephew just got the new Trap Team and he couldn't stop talking about getting new traps. He even told my mom, "How many can you afford?" Like Disney Infinity and the new Nintendo Amiibos, it's a huge money sink. I looked up the 8 pack of traps and it's $40. Ridiculous. - Rodfather
He was showing me this cardboard thing to put the traps on and talking about collecting all of them. There's 38(!) of them. http://theco-operatives.com/wp-cont.... That's not even including the new figurines. He kept saying "I need these!" I said no, you don't need any of them. You want them. You already have enough Skylanders. - Rodfather
My sister tells me that my nephew loves this. Then says she bought some of the figures and that I should get him a "trap." I don't know what the hell that is and looking at Toys R Us' website doesn't help. I'm going to tell her to just send me the link to what he wants. - Mary Carmen
It's one if these. http://www.amazon.com/gp.... There's different elements. I ended up ordering a 3 pack with tech, magic, and earth since it was cheaper than the others. - Rodfather from Android
Thank you! I'm looking at it. What the hell is this? - Mary Carmen
In this new game you can trap enemies with those traps and use them an as ally. It's sort of like a pokeball. So they can bring those traps to a friend's house and use those monsters. Or buy all the traps so you can have all 38 trappable monsters. - Rodfather from Android
When you buy the game it comes with this portal that connects to the console via USB. There's a slot for a trap and when you come across a monster in the game that you can trap it saves it to the trap. - Rodfather from Android
Since you can only trap a monster with the appropriate element, it kinda forces you to buy more traps. So like to trap a earth monster you need a earth trap. - Rodfather from Android
Tree Fu Tom is fascinating.

I just learned how camels walk from watching Caillou.
By putting one hoof in front of the others? :D - Scoble, Alex Scoble
^^Geez Scoble! Camels have toes not hooves!!! - Shannon - GlassMistress
Sorry, I did not watch Caillou. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
By putting one foot in front of the others? :D (happy now?) - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Better .. but I was mostly amusing myself over camel toe :-D - Shannon - GlassMistress
When they walk they move both legs on the same side simultaneously. So one side then the other. Unusual as most animals don't. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Also why they're called "Ships of the Desert" their gait makes them sway like a ship and can cause unexperienced riders to have motion/sea sickness. - Scott. Cat Herder.
بی تربیتا، انگشت شتر؟ خودتون رو زدید به اون راه یا خیال کردید ما سرمون نمیشه؟ :دی - ووووزلا
Interesting...what other animals walk like that? - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Caillou and Kipper are kid ambien. - ♫Maurice the Trainer♫
Cats and Giraffes. - Scott. Cat Herder.
Hmm, I was thinking that cats walk that way too...cool. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Cats walk like that??? I never noticed. - Mary Carmen
I'm definitely gonna need a translation. Google is failing me. - Mary Carmen
Cats prowl like that...they are too cool to walk. ;) - Scoble, Alex Scoble
I remember riding on a camel. It made a ship seem rock-stable by comparison. - Walt Crawford
Child napping. Sandwich in front of me. I win Monday.
I'm not gonna lie - every time I read this, I see child napping as synonymous with kidnapping and it gives me a start. Hope she's still sleeping and you are taking care of you! - WebGoddess
Why just take a child's lunch money when you can just take the child, and their sandwich? Is that what you're saying? ;-) - Brian Johns
I totally lost Monday when I puked up that sandwich. - Mary Carmen
There really isn't anything worse than watching your kid get shots.
I could probably think of worse things to watch your kids getting, but yeah. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Now happening in my living room: baby in a diaper, holding wipes, dancing to the Beach Boys' "Little Saint Nick."
Someone met Santa today.

I'm thinking for Christmas this year doing an all hors d'oeuvres meal.
For Rach's birthday last year we did a dessert dinner party. An hors d'oeuvres meal sounds yum - Johnny from iPhone
We do something like that. We call it a ploughman's lunch. Boudin, cheeses, meats, fruit, all laid out in the middle of the table and everyone just eats, drinks, and bes marry. - royce
Royce, that sounds awesome. - bentley
Snack attack! - Eric - ill subliminal
That's our family tradition for New Year's Eve. :) - Laura
My friends did that recently when her dad (who works for a multinational cheese company) delivered 60 lbs of cheese to her house. It was a Cheese And Everything That Goes With It meal, and it was awesome. - Jenica
we did this every year b/c people were in and out all day. quiche, cheese and crackers, cookies, pigs in a blanket, sometimes caviar (depending on how well we did that year) or smoked salmon, and always a pie. also to include whatever was in gift baskets people sent or brought over. beverages were each to their own, so mom stocked champagne, I did Campari and soda, my brother made the rum and eggnog, stepdad had his scotch, and kid bro had his Sprite stash. it's what I miss most about those days honestly. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
pick 'n' mix tea FTW! :-) - Marina's Godmother :-)
We should be a very small group and I know I probably won't feel well enough to cook a huge meal so this seems easiest. I love finger foods. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
I love finger foods. This is actually why I like to throw cocktail parties -- I get to make all the hors d'oeuvres! (I have a pinterest board for cocktail party food that might be useful for you. Most stuff on there is pretty simple to make, but it's all vegetarian. - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Watching Tron....still love this movie.
I wonder if my mom will kill me for tonight's FB post????
Did you not tell her prior to posting? - Corinne L
Oh, no, she knows. She just is old-fashioned. Like you should wait three months or whatnot. - Mary Carmen
My mom was that way too. - Corinne L
It's your choice and she will just have to deal with it. Fwiw, my mom feels the same way as your mom, but I think that's primarily because of our family medical history. Or, she's just old-fashioned. Regardless, it's all up to you. - Katy S
The funny thing about waiting until 3 months. If the embryo/fetus fails to progress it is usually by 8-9 weeks. It just takes the body that extra 3-4 weeks to finally figure it out (bleeding to express the sac). Anecdotal stuff from scanning pregnant ladies for 32 years. - Janet
Not on fb... Congrats?!?!! - Christina Pikas from iPhone
^^^ - bentley
Aw, are you preggy again? Yay! Congrats! Exciting! (Unless you're not and I'm totally misreading this...) - Laura Krier
Yes. We are expecting in late June/early July. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
missed this, but congrats!!! - Sir Shuping is just sir
Congratulations! - Galadriel C. from Android
Are chin implants an actual thing??
Yes, when we did jaw advancement surgeries we would sometime add to fix the profile. - Janet from FFHound!
^^^^ I knew a girl in high school (20 years ago) who went through what Janet just described. Girl was about 17 at the time. - AHnix (Anna Haro)
Mickey Rourke - Rodfather
I decorated the house. Therefore I have expended all of my energy for today. #pregnant
the fact that you are creating another human and able to do stuff like decorate the house means that you have gone above and beyond the call of duty for the day! take it easy. prop up your feet! - Sir Shuping is just sir
No comment. Admire my restraint, folks.
It's a splendid restraint, I would insure it for at least $50K - Pete
I think there's a scratch on one side $45K - Steve C Team Marina
The restraint is currently in duplication mode, the insurance is much higher. - Janet
I will paint any restraint for $999.95. - Steven Perez from Android
I love all of you people. All of you. - Mary Carmen
Pack your bags, we're going on a guilt trip.
Um... shotgun? - Julian
I'll just take a plane and meet you at the end. - Eric - ill subliminal
I have some ENORMOUS baggage. - Stephen Mack
Are we charged per bag or by weight? Carry ons free? - Steve C Team Marina
i have my own private container ship. fleet. a fsckin' fleet of them. i'm the Admiral. - Big Joe Silence
All bags fly free! - Mary Carmen from iPhone
I don't feel guilt. - Gabrielle from FFHound(roid)!
took my trip,yesterday, but I left snacks for y'all - ~Courtney F
Did my mom just show up? - Shannon - GlassMistress
Sounds like my mother's house at the holidays. DO NOT WANT - A Gunny named Slickback
I'm gonna need "Don't stick your dick in crazy" embroidered on some pillows so I can give them out.
It's kinda like a toss-up between who's having a worse week: Bill Cosby or Uber?
Cosby - .LAG liked that
Hands down - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
The Cos is getting his jello handed to him. - Eric - ill subliminal
but is he getting his pudding popped? - Big Joe Silence
He had a gig in my town this week. I was hoping to see a story about hecklers. - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
So, there is not much I am eating right now as most foods make me green. Just the smell or thought of some foods make me wanna toss. Every so often I get a craving that I feel I can handle. So tonight I wanted ice cream. No idea why. But the ice cream pull was hard. So Scott offers to run out to DQ to get me some. Text me what you want he says....
Great, I say. I just texted my entire craving order to Colleen by accident. And now I can't stop laughing. - Mary Carmen
If I had any shame I'd be embarrassed by what I just asked him to bring me. - Mary Carmen
I support ice cream crowd sourcing. Just fyi. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
Nobody loves you like Colleen. She understands. And is probably laughing with you. :) - Jenica from iPhone
