Thanks to a FB post by our very own Mary Carmen, I discovered that a blogger I knew & loved in my early years of blogging is still writing - and has written 2 books!
Ooo, which post? - Mary Carmen
The Disney princess one from Wide Lawns. I had dinner with Victoria & her husband nearly 10 years ago when they visited CA. Back in her early years of blogging she wrote the funniest stuff about working in the HOA office of a upscale south Florida neighborhood. - Corinne L
Very cool. I thought her post about the first day of school 1970s vs 2014 was hilarious. - Mary Carmen
God bless WordPress archives & search tools that work! Here's the post I wrote about meeting her: - Corinne L

6.0 Earthquake centered a few miles away did some damage here.

I was like "HOLY HELL!!!1!1!" until I realised the portrait photos are landscape here :) - Johnny from iPhone
Whoa. Everybody okay? - Lisa L. Seifert from iPhone
Hope y'all are ok. - Kirsten from Android
Non-human damage is doable. Glad you are okay. - Janet
Everyone is fine. Despite what the photos show, the house didn't flip over! Pics just showed up sideways. :) - Anne Bouey from iPhone
When I saw the epicenter, I wondered if you guys were unscathed. Glad to hear. - Anika
Power is out so we'll see if there's damage to the house in daylight. - Anne Bouey from iPhone
that poor pineapple ;) (glad everyone is ok) - ellbeecee from Android
Glad you're okay. - MoTO: Tufted Coqeutte
Glad everyone is okay. Stay safe! - Kristin from iPhone
I didn't think it was that big! It woke us up, but I was thinking it was in the 4.x range. I'm glad you are okay and hope that, in the daylight, the damage isn't worse. - vicster: full-bodied
Glad you're OK. - Eric Logan
I'm glad you guys are okay. - NOT THE CRICKET
Glad you're all ok! - Mary Carmen from iPhone
But how is the beautiful deck??? Oh and the kitty? :) - Steve C
Very glad you guys are okay. You were the first person I thought of when I heard where it was. *hugs* - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Yeesh. Felt it here in Sac so I knew it had to be a big one. Glad you're okay, Anne. - Corinne L
Just saw the news and raced to check in. I'm glad you're okay! - joey
Glad you're ok! I now understand why the previous owners of my house had baby proofing on lower AND upper cabinets. Wondering if I should put them back on... - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
^ Good idea - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Earthquake putty for display items. Can't recommend it enough <3 - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

I just heard about the quake a few minutes ago. According to the news Napa got hit the hardest. Everyone okay?
Good over here. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Brian Johns
I was going to give Stephen Mack a pass on the whole "celebrity deaths come in threes" because I figured Robin Williams was big enough to count for three. But now with Lauren Bacall, I'm not so sure.
Don't mess with me, Johns. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Start a 48 hour clock and we'll see. - Brian Johns
Mack speaks the truth. Always in threes. - Mary Carmen
Does the nascar driver killed over the weekend count as #1? I don't want to hear of another celeb death... - Lola Bean (Penguin)
Ooh - good idea. If we don't have anything better to go with by Thursday night we'll go with him and call it a triad. - Brian Johns
I stand by my previous posts debunking the "celebrity deaths come in threes" superstition. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Does Philip Seymour Hoffman not count? - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
oh my god. - Laura Norvig
The fact you can't name the NASCAR killer means he doesn't count. GL to all celebs. - Louis Gray
According to my mom, Ed Nelson from Peyton Place & The Twilight Zone is #3. - Lola Bean (Penguin) from iPhone
If Thursday night (an arbitrary deadline) comes and goes and nobody else (arbitrarily) famous enough dies then I will consider that scientific proof that the "celebrities die in threes" thing is a myth. I may be willing to join the “Celebrity deaths come in 1.7s” camp based on this very scientific data. - Brian Johns
Followup and Conclusion: After an extensive period of data collection and analysis over the last 4 days, I have changed my mind and joined Stephen's 1.7 bandwagon. Basically, I picked Robin Williams as a test and I haven't seen two other similarly noteworthy celebrities die so I'm going to generalize that experience over the entire realm of possibility and call it a scientific fact. If... more... - Brian Johns
Good analysis, Sparky! - Stephen Mack
This is how science is done, except I should have gotten a grant. - Brian Johns
Jay Adams has passed away. They do come in threes. - NOT THE CRICKET from iPhone

Why do strangers feel the need to touch my child? It seems so impolite.
How about you ? You dont like touch cute babies or kiss them ? - alireza6211 from iPhone
Not a stranger's baby. And I always ask first. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
There are certain things you shouldn't touch without permission, and pretty much anyone's body is included in that, as far as I'm concerned. A person's hair, a baby...just nope. No touchy. - Laura
Yeah. I don't need Germy McGerm Germ touchin my baby. - royce
i'm always surprised by the people who think they can touch my niece when we're out. - ~Courtney F
I consider small children to be drool infested germ carriers. I learned this at a Christmas event with 30 toddlers standing in front of our seats touching the railings. Fingers were either in their nose or mouth and then on the railing. I will touch no child after seeing this, nor touch railings or carts without a Purell wipe. - Janet from FFHound!
When I worked at the Health Sciences Library in NY, the pathology students used to swab and culture the escalator rails. I will never put my hand on one again. - Mary Carmen
I'm with Laura - I'll never get people who just gotta touch other people's kids, bellies, hair without permission. Partially because we're all disease vectors (nobody needs me taking or sharing whatever we may have,) but also it is just rude :/ - Jennifer Dittrich
I was never that comfortable with strangers deliberately standing too close to my child, never mind invading her personal space even more by touching her. And go out of your way to touch any part of me without warning, and you might be reflexively slapped, even if I know you. - April Russo
I didn't like it when strangers wanted to touch my dog. Start invading my personal space (which would include a baby if I had one), and I get a little antsy. And by antsy I mean stabbity... - Bette Cooper
There is a Mexican superstition that states that if you compliment a baby without touching them, you'll give them the 'ojo' (evil eye). Strangers touched my babies all the freaking time. - Jenny H. from Android
In Italy (at least the Tuscany region) all babies and toddlers are fair game :) - Eivind from Android
I don't get how asking permission doesn't even occur to some folx. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Before leaving the NICU, the docs & nurses gave me all kinds of lessons about baby care, and had me so paranoid, to this day I don't hold or kiss babies under a year, if I don't have to. Even my loved ones, the most I'll do is hold their baby's foot & wiggle it. We gotta protect em all, even from us. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I was just reading an article about how important it is to teach kids about bodily autonomy and consent, both for their own bodies and others. I think it's appalling that people think they can touch children at will, without asking permission. And no, I never touch children without asking a parent, and I'm trying to remember to always ask children, too, in whatever way is appropriate for their age. - Laura Krier
I say we bomb Italy. - Eivind from Android

Another observation from today: I can't believe how many people can't spell the word "ancestry" when I'm asked to give my address.
What is that ? - alireza6211 from iPhone
The name of my street. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
So I can spell It now Mary ! , A,N,C,E,C,T,R,Y :D - alireza6211
"It's like 'incest', only starting with 'a' and ending with a 'try' :) - Ken Gidley
Sorry, too much GoT lately... - Ken Gidley
Try to change the name of your street :D - alireza6211 - Mary Carmen
Actually I cant believe how so many americans cannot spell their own words... - Monaca di V.le Monza from BuddyFeed
I could spell it ... right up until you asked me too, then probably not so much :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
I feel the same way about my street: Medallion. But what's even more surprising is that some people didn't know how to spell the name of my last street: Broadway. Seriously. - Laura Krier
The first house we bid on was on Susquehanna Ct. I'm SOOOOOO glad we didn't get that house! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
I live near the Susquehanna, it is hellish hard to spell. And the Schuylkill expressway or river is the same for me! - Janet
Susquehanna is such a pretty word, but yeah, it's a tough one to spell. Same with Shenandoah. - Corinne L
Shannon - GlassMistress
Leaning tower of cake. I am so, so bummed about it even though some of it was out of my control (too damn hot in the venue, table / floor sloped to the wall, and quite frankly it was a poor idea). But here it is, and it's done and I think I'm retiring from making wedding cakes for friends ... End rant.
It looks great to me! - Heleninstitches
Too early to be drinking, Helen! Kidding, you are too kind, and I thank you. It was borderline disaster and I'd like to say I'm over it, but clearly I'm not... - Shannon - GlassMistress
I think it looks fantastic! - Anne Bouey
The temperature and the floor were out of your control, don't beat yourself up over it. I think the cake looks great! - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Take the picture from the "peacock" side, problem disappears. Also, slice and eat the cake. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
^^ was hoping for that but damned if they didn't put the cake in front of a big ass mirror! Hah! I'd say I couldn't catch a break but it didn't fall over so there's that :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
Mmm, looks great. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Honestly, it looks really good. You could even argue that any slight lean adds to the peacock effect. Did rhe bride like it? - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Honestly I have no clue if the bride was happy or not. Part of the cake's problem was it was a poor concept. I did exactly as she asked knowing full well it was a bad plan. There are six layers of cake in rainbow colors in each tier. It is crazy heavy from all the frosting. I'm suspicious that the lean is due to one of the wooden dowels inside either broke or forced its way through the... more... - Shannon - GlassMistress
If someone made my wedding cake for me and it like looked one tenth as awesome as that one, I'd be happy, proud of my talented friend and very grateful. Its beautiful. - Mary Carmen
Looks lovely and I'm sure it tasted delicious!! - Sepi ⌘ سپی
What! It looks amazing! You did really well. And take it up as a learning experience - you'll get even better over time! I would be delighted to have this at my wedding. It's really lovely. You done good. - Miriella
I can tell you exactly what the problem was - when you make tiered cakes, you use plastic cake plates under each tier, not cardboard. The cardboard is for single tier only and is not meant to hold weight or pressure from your dowels. The plates have post holes that your dowels go into to keep them from slipping as well. There are also specific dowels you will want to use (not sure if... more... - Hookuh Tinypants
Yes to everything you said. I've used wooden dowels and cardboard on the 30 or so cakes I've done over the years with no problem. Guess there had to be a first, huh? I only do one to three cakes a year so I dont get much practice and it is a practice kind of thing. - Shannon - GlassMistress
I use cardboard and dowels, too, without a problem. However, when you stack a cake 3 tiers and over, I've learned it's necessary to put a long center dowel through the entire cake, boards included. Poke a hole in each separator board, then sharpen the dowel and hammer it down through the entire cake so that it sits in the middle of every tier. Some people use food grade PVC pipe as the... more... - Trish R
Trish. Its there ... even had to go to Home Depot to get it. I wasnt there for the 'autopsy' so I dont know where it failed, just guessing it has to be with the supports somewhere since the tiers were level when I started out. - Shannon - GlassMistress
I bet the supports shifted as the cake got softer when the room warmed up. Cake can come apart between the dowels and nothing prevents that from happening. - Trish R
Considered that - and leaning that direction myself, pun intended - hah! The extra layers and icing made for one heavy cake and I'm figuring I just didnt account for that weight when I assembled. The plastic rods would have been better and I might have avoided the whole thing. Hindsight ;-) - Shannon - GlassMistress

New cal-king bed, BOOYAH!
The only trouble with a Cal-king bed (we've owned them for decades) is that your choice of sheets &c. can be somewhat limited, especially from places like LLBean, who've never heard of Cal-king. - Walt Crawford
Target has awesome sheets. The high performance cotton and the organic cotton are wonderful. - Mary Carmen
Mary Carmen
I love my husband because he doesn't get mad when I give the homeless guy outside Target $20.
It is your money and you can spend it however you want ? Is it ? - alireza6211 from iPhone
yup - Mary Carmen
My husband gets cranky when I give $20 that's tax deductible to a regular charity - Christina Pikas from iPhone
I hear that Scott guy is pretty cool. - Steven Perez
Mary Carmen
Rapidly approaching the "fuck it, shit is just being swept into boxes" stage of packing.
there are worse places to be. - Jenica
yes, I am not at the "let's set it all on fire" stage yet. - Mary Carmen
exactly. - Jenica
Steve C
Question for current or previous owner/operators of small human beings: How much poopin' is too much poopin'? The boy likes to deliver one to two four squirt diapers a day of breast milk which you know leaves a small brown lake of probably 4 ounces each time. The books all say they may go through a period of no pooping. But nothing on regularity.
Yes we'd see pediatrician if thought there was a problem I'm just asking. - Steve C
You can call your pediatrician to ask over the phone though. Or even talk to a nurse in the office. I do it all the time! Sorry I can't answer the question though. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
That's about what M does too. Sometimes it's every diaper change, like 4 in a row a day. - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Ours were all prodigious poopers, and 4 +/- 2 per day was normal for them. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Great thanks peeps I'll let the wifey know. And I always forget Zulema we can call pediatrician with our silly questions - Steve C
Sounds pretty normal to me. Gross, but normal. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Yup. Poopin' is wildly variable, in my experience -- for a few months, when really exclusively breastfed, she pooped all the poops all the time. Now, when she's 50/50 with formula, she poops every few days (in massive quantities!). Baby poop is a mystery. - Jenica
It has always amazed me how much can come out of someone so small. - MAMA VAL#GOSCARLETTGO
Just wait till you get to solids.....I have never in my life seen anything so small produce so much. - Mary Carmen
mine also pooped that much or more. what a mess. eta: what mc says about solids. ms 2 produces more than my dog who is 90lbs - Christina Pikas
oh, and as long as no signs of dehydration and there's plenty of weight gain, sky's the limit, imo. but of course your pediatrician would be happy to talk to you about it or if your insurance has a nurse line - Christina Pikas

Major moving stuff and unpacking happening. This is a great thing as this means it will now not happen all at once. Kitchen almost completely set up. My closet is done. Getting bathroom done.
Baby's closet unpacked. The men are setting up their nerd cave. Furniture gets moved Saturday. I start shopping next week for a dining set for the EIK and for new couches and other odds and ends. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
As much as I despise moving, this move has been the best so far. - Mary Carmen from iPhone

Admitting defeat of de feet. Coming soon: massive sale-slash-giveaway of beautiful shoes that the rheumatoid & spondylitis make it impossible to wear. I'm keeping the Sanitas, Danskos, and sneakers. All the pretty stuff and the winter stuff will be up for grabs. If you or a friend is a 9.5M, stay tuned....
I hate this. So sad!!!! - Mary Carmen from iPhone
It's okay. I'm comforting myself with promises that I will only wear cool Sanita print clogs. Size 41, y'all. ;) - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤
I will worship the ground you (now comfortably) walk on for cute winter stuff. - Meg VMeg
Also, Fluevogs. Many Fluevogs need new homes. - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤
Meg, I have lots of low heel booties, by Born, Naturalizer, Crown Vintage/Born - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤
I am sad about your loss, but I'm glad that we live in a time in which shoes can be both cute and comfy. - Katy S
I'm also sad about your loss, but evilly rubbing my hands together as I can wear that size. - Christina Pikas
dear lord, you said the F-word - Meg VMeg

Now that Mariella is mobile, I find myself saying lots of things I never thought I would say. A small sample:

"We do not eat cat food." - Mary Carmen
"Please don't empty the water bowl." - Mary Carmen
"Leave the cat alone." - Mary Carmen
"Can you get out of there by yourself?" - Mary Carmen
"Stay away from the oven!" - Mary Carmen
"Don't chew on my shoe, it's dirty!" - Mary Carmen
"Where did you come from?" - Mary Carmen
"Yes, you spit up. Please stop sitting in it." - Mary Carmen
"You can't have that." - Mary Carmen
I think this answers your previous question. - Christa
"You can't have that." - Mary Carmen

"WHEN I'M MOBILE! BEEP BEEP!" - Big Joe Silence
Lemme preface I plan to BF exclusively. But we live in a modern age and I also plan to avail myself of modern things. In this photo Every Single Type of formula has soy in it. WTF is that about.
While I have no proof #tinyhuman will be allergic to soy at all I think it'd be prudent to treat her as such until proven otherwise. I get reactions from lotions, hair care, etc that have soy in them and I'm gonna handle this formula and definitely get puked on... Ugh! Come'on 21st century! Not everything needs soy in it. - Lnorigb from FFHound!
Ah, shoot. My friend did research on this, let me see if I can find the brand... Holle. It's not from the US, but you can have it shipped here. They do a soy-free infant formula: - Jennifer Dittrich
Yes, Little Organics sells it. Peaceful Planet also sells soy-free formula, but I think it is toddler formula. You could try goat's milk formula. - Mary Carmen
Damn Gina!! you two rock! Thanks. I'm super concerned about time in the hospital, cos those bishes, love covering their asses. I'm toying with the idea of bringing some formula with us to deliver, so the hospital stays happy and I stay worry free. - Lnorigb

Very interesting photo set. One of my beefs with projects like this is that I rarely see anyone with my body type, (the imagery of overweight seems to stop at the line between overweight and obesity, which could be the difference between a size 16 and a size 22 (not every obese person weighs 500+ pounds)) however, the two images of the overweight...
women actually remind me of me. Interesting to see it. - Mary Carmen

Yesterday was the worst day ever. After a really emotional day, and a series of driving obstacles, I missed the checkin cutoff for luggage essentially missing our flight. Had a massive ugly cry at the Virgin counter. Got a hotel with an outdoor pool we can't use because of thunderstorms. The kids are bouncing off the walls. And my grandma died. =(
I want to go home. - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Oh Yvonne, sending you my love and support. So very sorry for your loss. - Janet

Feeling like the fattest fat who ever fatted.
*fist bump, MC!* - B. LB.
I think your autocorrect changed them from "phat" - Johnny from iPhone
Is that good or bad? Because if it's bad, I might have to smack you for using that kind of language about my friend. - Holly's favorite Anna
Yeah! What she ^^^ said!!! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
No phat is definitely good. At least where I come from. - MoTO: Tufted Coqeutte
"Phat is good, in the same way as 'bad' and 'sick' can be," said Pete , Professor of Those Dang Kids Studies at the University of Cod Liver Oil-Get Off My Lawn - Pete
I think Anna was talking to me. And no, I don't feel the good version of phat. Only the bad. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
ETA that my comment was one of solidarity for having those feelings myself, not to say you are any kind of fat. But you are certainly phat. *hugs* - B. LB. from Android
Aw, MC, *hugs* - Anne Bouey

Here's the deal with me:
I'm a hyper, happy, always look on the bright side, workaholic, who loves to laugh, have a fun time, drink snooty Belgian beer, and knows dick about wine. I swear like a sailor on shore leave and have a thick NYC accent. I could eat pizza or a bacon cheeseburger every day and be quite happy. I will always think my ass and hips and thighs are too big and will perpetually be "on a diet." I like being silly before I fall asleep and first thing when I wake. I am mostly nocturnal and do enjoy sleeping in very late on Sundays. I love football and hockey. I'm addicted to yarn and often come home with it. I will cry any time I see a stray cat or dog and I get very grouchy when I'm hungry or tired. I hate talking on the phone, but love getting/sending text messages. I think the Who and the Kinks are the best bands ever and that the Rolling Stones are overrated. I will go to every record store in NYC to hunt down that Sweet Things 7 inch on vinyl and will listen to the same record over and over... more... - Mary Carmen

WRONG! (about the 30 years :) - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
I think I will now go and cry based on Micah's comment. Happy tears! - Georgia
