Please to mail me one. - Mary Carmen
Oh, wow. - Jennifer Dittrich
it was AMAAAAAZING. - holly #ravingfangirl
thank you, Wolfgang! - holly #ravingfangirl
Mike Nencetti
Purple Haze - Abita Brewing Company, Abita Springs, LA - Raspberry flavored beer. I only bought one - (build a six pack)

it was OK. Glad I only got one. Just curious what it tasted like - Mike Nencetti
I once visited that brewery and tasted the root beer. Dang tasty. - Marie
I like their Andygator beer. - Mike Nencetti
Out of a Chimay glass. Blasphemy!!!! ;-) - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Mary. I did have a Chimay a few weeks ago. - Mike Nencetti

So this just happened to me:
*grabs popcorn* - Louise "Weezy" Alcorn
went shopping at Target. By the parking lot entrance was an older looking man, probably 45-50, with a gas can, holding a sign that said, "out of gas. Please help." After I parked my car I walked over to him and gave him $20. He was very gracious, explained that he was trying to get back to Fresno and thanked me profusely. As I turned back towards the entrance, this woman stopped her car... more... - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Also, "these people." Lady you're lucky you were stopped where you could block traffic, because I had some thoughts to share with you about your word choice. Are people born this ignorant? - Mary Carmen from iPhone
People like that - those people, in fact (!) - are made. Sad. And good for you. And yeah, karma. - Louise "Weezy" Alcorn
Dunno if you've read one of Jon Carroll's annual Untied Way column, where he advocates a day of personal Untied Way charity: you go to an ATM, take out as many $20s as you can do with it being just a little uncomfortable, and whenever somebody asks for money, you give them a $20. Without worrying about what they're going to do with it. - Walt Crawford
[No, I did not misspell United in the previous comment: This is the Untied Way, not the United Way.] - Walt Crawford
Walt, I have not, but I love it. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
I'd rather donate and be "wrong" than not donate and be "right". Intent is all. - Mo Kargas
I make it a point to always donate bus money when asked for it. Most of the time "bus money" is a social fiction but pride is as valuable as any coins. And it reminds me of the "5cent economy" at my sister's school where people would ask friends for five cents and you had to give it unless you really didn't have anything on you, because what kind of selfish tightfisted jerk can't spare a measley 5c? So, same thing, but scaled up to adult salaries and needs. - Deborah Fitchett
About to meet with the attorney and learn what happens next. Brave face on!
Good luck! - Anika
There were a bunch of errors in the owner's complaint that I didn't catch. Attorney prepared an amended answer that I'm on my way to file. This is to buy us time but the scariest part is wondering if in the end the court will order me to pay the owner for the time we've been here not paying rent. That would take all the $$ I've saved up for a move in/deposit. But, all that in time. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Keep the faith. And let us know how we can help. You know we got your back. - Mary Carmen
I do know that. Thank you, Luv. got a referral to meet with a lawyer from a different group who may represent me further. I talk to that person on Wednesday. - Starmama
one step at a time. we're here all the way, doll. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
Sorry I dropped the ball on packing, but I can help in other ways if you need it. Good luck!!! - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!

Offering to buy me new sneakers and a cell phone are very poor substitutes, love. I am ungrateful for what I have apparently.

'Ain't nothin like the real thing' :-/ Sorry, boo. - AHnix (Anna Haro)
Cheddar cheese on pizza or lasagna, yay or nay?
not as the main cheese, but ok if paired with mozzarella. - holly #ravingfangirl
(at least on pizza) - holly #ravingfangirl
Nope. - Mary Carmen
I wouldn't unless I had no better options. - John (bird whisperer)
What John said. Better pizza than lasagna in that case. - Spidra Webster
My dad and I always have arguments over the merits of cheddar in/on lasagne. He is for it, I am against it. I usually say something like "Mario Batali would slap you upside the head". Plus it makes the lasagne oily...which is very messy and unappetizing. - Chris Topher
Happy birthday! - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Happy birthday, love. ❤ - Alix May
Happy birthday! - Laruia Ingalls Botts from Android

Does anyone want any sourdough starter? I seem to be neck deep in it again.
i am proud to say that i've managed to keep the starter you sent me alive! i'm such an adult! ; ) - jambina
Yay! - Mary Carmen

Dear SI joint: If you could just slip back into place and hold it together until the chiro tomorrow, I'd greatly appreciate it. Stop making the pregnant lady hurt. Thank you, MC

Owwww - Stephen Mack
Pregnancy is AWESOME! - Mary Carmen
Mary Carmen
Thing I just said to myself: I should get up and puke before the baby gets up.
Pregnancy is weird. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
At least you have plans. - Eric - Let Me Know
It's crazy consistent. Now instead puking all day, I wake up, look at the toilet, puke and then go on my way. So odd. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
RT @jodyallen_sahm: I know you've done it too.
RT @jodyallen_sahm: I know you've done it too.
Yup. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
baby wipes are the ULTIMATE. i clean amp Tolex and guitar bodies with them. and hands. and tables. and car dashboards. and workbenches. what are they NOT good for, really? - Big Joe Silence
Cat puke. Shoes. Window tracks. - Melly
Mary Carmen
I am debating with myself: should I go out in the rain and get the bacon cheeseburger my body is craving?
If you could pick up a taco for me.... thanks. - Yolanda
pics or it didn't happen - Mike Nencetti
Don't they deliver? - April Russo
No one around here delivers a decent burger. Actually our delivery options are pretty slim. We live in the sticks. - Mary Carmen
Lack of decent delivery/carry out options is one of the few things against living in the sticks. - Katie
Mary Carmen
Baby moving. Baby moving.
Dancing? - Anne Bouey
The one that's still cooking. Feeling more movement. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Yeah, I just figured this baby is getting an early start. :) - Anne Bouey
The consensus among most of my friends is, they love their kids more than I love my kid, because they would have already taken the dogs to a shelter and gotten an apt. I'm stupid for choosing dogs over my son.
Thing is, nobody understands the disappointment I have as a mother. Jayden is going nowhere fast and I don't know if there's ever going to be something I can take pride in that isn't a milestone he should've hit by 11. I get far more joy, comfort, and companionship from the dogs than I do from my kid. So if I do throw my dogs away? I'd be getting rid of the only good part of my life. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I have the hardest time with people who don't understand what sort of companionship animals can provide, especially when you're going through rough times. I'm cool with people who don't feel that themselves, because to each their own, but you'd think they could stretch at least a little empathy. - Jennifer Dittrich
I wish your friends wouldn't criticize you when you really need support right now. Pets are part of your family and become like children. I see it as you choosing to keep your family together, not choosing the dogs over Jayden. You've been dealt a lot of unfair shit in this life and if those dogs bring you joy, comfort and companionship, then you fight to keep them. You deserve all the happiness you can get. I pray a solution presents itself soon. *hugs* - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Some of those friends have slept in my home with their children when they had nowhere to stay. Many of them would leave their kids with me, years before I became a mother, so they could go party at the club, because I was the only one with a job & I often stayed home on weekend nights when I had to work the next day. They're people who ought to know where my priorities are & it really hurts that they're discussing me being irresponsible and stupid. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Imma keep this real simple: fuck them. You do what you need to do. If they are too selfish to see past their situations and have some understanding of yours, then they can go fuck themselves. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
^^^ This. - bentley
ouch. gotdambit when people disappoint you at the worst possible time. but yeah, what MC said. *hugs with one arm; flips bird to the world with the other* - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra

In today's installment of, "What's Mary craving?" English muffins. All the English muffins. The dink seems to like them, too.
The dink must be served. - MoTO Boychick Devil

Awwww, thank you! - Stephen Mack
Indeed. He's also one of the most interesting people I've ever met. - Jenny H. from Android

It's cos he carries bird seed with him. - Pete
He definitely has a big heart. A truly considerate and caring person. :) - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Big heart? Exercises a lot? - Amit Patel
He square dances like a motherfucker. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Amit, my resting heart rate is 57 bpm per my Fitbit Surge. - Stephen Mack

There are "fatherlands" and "motherlands", so why not "unclelands" or "auntlands"?
Or sonlands or daughterlands - John (bird whisperer)
fratecuginoland - Lorenzo R v rs
According to the ngram viewer, there are such things as "daughterlands" — colonies, I'm guessing? - Victor Ganata
inlawslands (definitely overpopulated) - ((°} from Android
No one would ever visit Inlawsland. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Most people wouldn't even visit grandparentsland. - Andrew C (✔)
assoretalands - Erwin Schrödinger from Flucso
Cool auntlands. - joey

i have a Chandler-style rant just itching to get released.
"oh honey, you let it out. put it in the book." - Mary Carmen
MC's trying to make fetch happen... :P - Hookuh Tinypants

I thought we were talking about Raymond Chandler... - Stephen Francoeur
Sounds like you need a bubble bath. - Kristin

Now taking recommendations for cross country car transport. Advice online says to avoid brokers in case of damage to the car, but at this point I'll take anything! Thanks!
Hmm, my family always did it the hard way. I have a cousin who just loved road trips and has done it several times. I've never used a broker but surely there has to be a reliable one? - Stephen Mack
Last time I moved I towed mine behind the moving truck. - laura x
I used Magic Carpet Auto Transport to move my car from NY to CA. I have no complaints. The price was fair and it was delivered on time. - Mary Carmen

first thing i did this morning was earworm myself with "Wheels on the Bus" so i've got that going for me.
*shakes fist* - ellbeecee
One year, the Staff Day skit at MfPOW was about The Home for Retired Librarians. At one point, one of the Youth librarians (who really was retiring very soon), stumbles across the stage, clutching her head. "NOOOOO! Not the wheels on the Bus!!!" - bentley
i got a Wheels on the Bus tshirt from woot a while back - that was the culprit. :) - holly #ravingfangirl
Is it still going round and round in your head? - That's So CAJ!
yep yep yep - holly #ravingfangirl
I bet you wish you had mental wiper blades that would go swish swish swish...(*whispers* all over town) - That's So CAJ!
THANKS! - Mary Carmen

Ok Go is on Sesame Street. Love it.

Agreed! - Stephen Mack

In complete and utter denial that my husband is essentially moving to CT this coming Sunday. =(

:-( you'll survive. When do you join him? - Mary Carmen
I fly out with the kids for a week in Feb and again in April. He flies back to CA in March, May, and June. Hopefully in April we'll be able to find a house to rent and John can be more settled by the time I get there with the boys in June. - The Other Yvonne

Pregnancy is the best diet ever. So far I'm down 8 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight.
