Got into character today as Mizzz Complaina - that's with a long zzz - for kids in 916 Ink's comic writing program. My role was to listen to their story pitches and "approve" them for publication in the upcoming book. Used an accent and said silly things. I love improv.
042214 CL as Mizzz Complaina.JPG
One kid said, "Your accent sounds like you are from France." I said, in my Hepburn-esque/old movie star accent, "I have been to France, it is WONDERFUL, but Meh is my beloved home. You should visit Meh sometime! It is lovely!" (The Complaina characters, who serve in the role of publisher, are all from the Republic of Meh.) - Corinne L

Dr. J (not the basketball player) on FB: "Jenny McCarthy says she's not anti-vaccine. If I'm being honest, I can't fault her for this one. If she doesn't understand what SHE says, how can we expect her to understand what science says?"

OH HEY I KNOW HER - kendrak
I'M FRIENDS WITH AN NYT AUTHOR - lris
LOOKEE THERE MY FRIEND'S IN THE NYT - Catherine Pellegrino
*swoon* - WebGoddess
I'm sorry you felt that way, Laura. *hug* - Steele Lawman
Wow. - YvonneM
that's a beautifully written and very sad piece. thanks for telling your story. - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
*hugs* Thanks for sharing that time with us. - Anne Bouey
Thank you all. It's been a strange trip. - laura x
I feel like running around telling everyone I know LAURA IS IN THE NY TIMES!!!!!!!!!! Even though they don't know you. Love to you, and I can relate to the whole delayed experience of trauma thing. *hugs* - Marianne
I was already meaning to buy your book, and this made me want to read it even more. I finally got off my ass and bought it, about time. - Georgia
Love your writing. And I understand missing the good feelings during what is supposed to be a special time. - Yolanda from Android
beautifully written. - Jen from BuddyFeed
What a poignant, well-written piece. I am so glad it's in print/on screen in the NYT! Wow. - Galadriel C. from Android
Thank you thank you! At what point does "have I mentioned my piece in the NYT?" become an obnoxious opening gambit? 'Cause I am hoping I get a few more days. - laura x from iPhone
you can continue saying it for another week or so. - Sir Shuping is just sir
Laura I think you definitely have several more days! - Galadriel C. from Android
I'd say at least a week or two. Heck, if it was me, I'd be insufferable for months...but you're a better person. - Walt Crawford
I know it's not the same, but when I found out I had toxo (and thus had to wait months after birth to find out if baby was really OK) I mourned the happy, carefree pregnancy I never got. Thanks for sharing. (Also, holy cow you're in the NYT!) - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
Jaclyn, it's all so difficult. I always knew (or intuited) that my baby would be okay. I can't imagine not knowing that. - laura x from iPhone

achievement unlocked: 4 cats' nails trimmed, all in a row!
not a literal row, but you get it. - holly #ravingfangirl
Good job! - Laura
Damn. - laura x from iPhone
Very impressive! - Katy S
this was a very hairy process. the cats took it surprisingly well. only had to chase down one of them. ;) - holly #ravingfangirl
You earned "cat whisperer" status! - Janet from FFHound!
all four paws on all four cats?! truly remarkable! - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an

Lord have mercy, I've become a pretty regular lurker, sometimes user on Reddit. I blame Rod.
Hah. I'm still mostly a lurker. It's pretty damn entertaining. - Rodfather
I have a whole bunch of multireddits set up now. - Rodfather
Here's one I copied and then added on to. I made it public for now. http://www.reddit.com/user... - Rodfather
Another for Nintendo related http://www.reddit.com/user... - Rodfather
I go there for a DC subreddit, one on Wii, another for 3DS, a couple on audio and vinyl, and a couple more on bands and music that I like and follow. - Derrick
I remember when I first tried to use it, everyone was so trollish. A lot of really techy folks talking about stuff way over my head and it was really hard to navigate to find stuff I was interested in. Some of the subreddits are still very high bro ratio, but things are pretty chill where I hang out. - Derrick
Any recs for sub-reddits? - YvonneM
/r/babyelephantgifs is my happy place - Glen Campbell
I follow really specific sub-reddits, so unless you like audio, records, stereo equipment or hi-fi's, probably not very compelling. I'm sure others will have more interesting ones. - Derrick
How's the DC one? My siblings and my cousins are sometimes on there, but I don't think I've looked at it beyond threads-in-the-"news" in years. - Katie
It's...DC. Little bit of everything in the area, different chatter about neighborhoods, the metro, the nats, etc. - Derrick
I recently found this. Amusing. http://www.reddit.com/r... - Rodfather from Android

Turn your head and cough? - Johnny from iPhone
Hey, I don't talk about our personal life in public, Johnny... oh wait, I saw what you did there... - Zamms
Does your wife know about this? - Steele Lawman
*rimshot* - Zamms
shut the front door! (tell her congrats) - Meg VMeg
I will! I will also shut the front door. - Zamms
GREAT NEWS!!!!... um, so i have this pain on my left side? - MoTO Moca Blend
Yeah, and I've got this rash... - Melly
Were these ailments caused by the social networking between Broadway producers, directors, and writers? - Zamms
By "social networking" you mean what exactly? - MoTO Moca Blend
In the sociological sense, not the interwebs sense. - Zamms

oh, the temptation... KitchenAid 6 Qt. Lift Stand Mixer for $329.99 http://home.woot.com/offers/kitchenaid-6-qt-lift-stand-mixer-2 via @woothome
someday i will have a KitchenAid of my very own... - holly #ravingfangirl
I seriously don't know how I lived without it. I use it for everything now. I don't know why, but I am still surprised when I discover I can use it to do something new. - Mary Carmen
i'm still mad that my mom had one and gave it to someone else when she downsized. KitchenAid has a bonus right now to get the ice cream maker attachment for free too. my main issue? I don't know where i'd keep it. - holly #ravingfangirl
holly - that's the only reason I don't have one, too. They take up a lot of space. Having said that, I'm annoyed that my parents gave their old one to my brother since he doesn't cook or bake much. - Katy S
I sucked it up and dedicated counter space to it. I found I was using it way too much to keep taking it down from the top of the fridge. - Mary Carmen
i keep the one i have now on the top shelf of my pantry. ain't no way this would even fit. I think the only real place i could make space for it is away from where i do most of the cooking. i suppose it could work though. DAMN YOU, WOOT. this is such a good deal. - holly #ravingfangirl
When I moved from LA to NOLA, mine sat in the car in the front seat. O_o - Derrick
I bought mine with my first paycheck about 20 years ago. It still works great. Although I really want that red one. - Trish R from iPhone
haha, school loans -------> - Derrick
*whimper* - Betsy
oh damn. Costco's coupons starting 4/10 have what looks like a comparable model for $60 off which could put it under $300. but it's a Costco-only version. hrm. - holly #ravingfangirl
no free ice cream maker though, cuz costco's coupon for it expired at the end of March. SUCH INDECISION. - holly #ravingfangirl
I'd love to have the ice cream maker. And the pasta attachment. - Trish R from iPhone
oh wait, the other coupon includes the costco model. though some reviews are saying there are issues finding attachments/accessories that fit it. GAH. i am going to go run and see how i feel about it then. maybe it will be sold out and i won't have to make a decision. lol - holly #ravingfangirl
OH GOOD GRIEF. i am still trying to decide. i'm gonna be sitting here with my finger on the trigger until 9:58 or until woot sells out. i think i have determined that what's different about this one is worth the $30 more than Costco's version. - holly #ravingfangirl
Girl, if you don't order that damn mixer... - Derrick
Those tall ones won't fit under my cabinets. I'm jealous of y'all who have have enough space for them. - Katy S
I wish I could use mine more often, but I don't have the counter-space to keep it out all the time, and it's so damned heavy that I never feel like dragging it out of the cupboard. I end up using a whisk or a small hand-mixer for 99% of my mixing needs. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
DO EEEEEEEET! - LB: Ratchet Bear from Android
The free ice cream maker is totally worth it! - Galadriel C. from Android
IT IS DONE. we'll see if i get the ice cream maker. :) - holly #ravingfangirl
I admit I'm always surprised to find out that someone *doesn't* have a KitchenAid. I grew up with one and when I started planning for my first apartment, it was the very first thing I bought. And every time I've moved, it's ridden shotgun (with a seatbelt, natch). I finally replaced my original with a 7 quart professional model a couple years ago. Still the star of the kitchen. :) - Hookuh Tinypants
I sometimes regret not having one. I grew up with one, too, and they're wonderful. For a very long time it was a space issue (I had a horrible tiny galley kitchen). Now I'm afraid I'd bake more than I already do. ;) - Katy S
I grew up with one but have never felt the need for my own, oddly. - laura x from iPhone
My mil has a 50yo one that works great. She gave me mine for a shower gift. Subsequent gifts included both pasta attachments and the meat grinder. :) I have a separate cuisinart ice cream maker with spare bowl - Christina Pikas from iPhone

Farmer’s Mkt haul: bananas, papaya, yogurt, tortillas, cheese, apples, broccolini, bread, ice cream, some dude’s number. #hiyoooo
Hopefully you didn't have to pay for that last item. :) - (Curtis/Alan) Jackson

Okay, y'all, let's flood FF with all the things we love about Tamara. Time to put massive amounts of positive energy out there for her and the baby.
I love that today I found the photo booth photos she insisted we take after seeing the Muppet movie together (the one with Jason Segal). - Corinne L
I love that she is generous, silly, funny, and always knows the right things to say when I am going through it. - Corinne L
I love that, now matter how frantic her life is, she always has time to check in on her friends to make sure we are all okay. - vicster: full-bodied
I love how she believes in good. Even when life is shit, Tam always believes in good. I aspire to emulate that. - vicster: full-bodied
I love how Tam always cares about how her friends are doing/feeling, even when she's going thru it herself. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I love how she's always responding to me with DMs that are super helpful like kids activities and Meetup groups. She takes a post where I say I need to do something and she kickstarts me into action with concrete ideas. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I love how generous, kind and thoughtful she is. And how she always knows when to DM me with a good word or smile. - Mary Carmen
I love, love her smile. So pretty in pictures, but in person she really does light up a room! - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Her generosity of spirit is huge, and so real, I can't help but love her. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Aww. Thanks, you guys. I love you all. I really do try to be a great person and friend because I genuinely care. I know I could always do more and be better but I'm grateful that you guys feel loved or special in whatever big or small way as a result of our friendship. I want the best for all of you. Xoxo - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Big smooches to you, Tam. - Corinne L
That in amongst all this she finds time to check in with Helen and be a cheerleader :) - Pete
You got there before me... in amongst all this crap, there was still a message for me this morning wishing me a great day ;-) And I've not yet told y'all about my amazing birthday present. Or how she listens to me moaning about work every week! Or the great advice she gives. Or how she's brought Josh Jackson into my life *swoon*... - Heleninstitches
I love how thoughtful and generous and kind she is :oD - Melly
I simply adore Tamara's sunshine! <3 - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
She's always very eager and generous with running advice and I appreciate that. She's a wonderful lady. - Jed from iPhone
I love how she never gives up, no matter how much crap life throws her way. How she responds to life's adversities, not pretending everything is always okay, admitting when she is having a shit day, but always ready for a brighter day tomorrow. She has a lovely soul, she's a great hugger, and she has a radiant smile. - Jenny H.
Thank you. I barely slept last night and my heart still hurts, yes, I'm angry too, but it was such a bright spot to wake up to these messages. I appreciate the love. *group hugs* - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Tam is always looking out for others' well-being. She is very loving, caring and very energetic. She is persistent, doesn't know what quitting means. She is intelligent. And all of that will come on handy once Miss M is here soon. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Tam is very generous and thoughtful, and she sends out lovely cards. - John (bird whisperer)
I lub TamTam, bcoz shes' always positive and always is very thought of others ! - Peter Dawson
Where do I begin? She's funny. She's cute. She's got a great laugh. She's very sweet. She's a great motivator. She's sends out great cards. She likes John Hughes movies. She makes Adam happy. She's Tam Tam. :) - Steven Perez
She is by all accounts an amazing person. I've never met her in real life, yet I have lovely notes from her on my cork board and fridge b/c that's the thoughtful and genuinely kind person she is. I feel beyond lucky to share a name with her. If she needed me to go to California and organize a protection detail for her and the baby, I would do it. For real. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat
All of the above and everything else! - Katy S from iPhone
She sent me cookies, internationally, to encourage an act of creativity I was trying. Delicious. Tam invests in people. So lovely, she. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Beauty and heart. Glenda the Good Witch ;) - Brent Schaus from FFHound!
I like the way Micah explained it. Tam invests in people is so true. A bright light and loving soul. - Janet from FFHound!
How can I find the words to express how much it means to me that you guys care and "get" me? I appreciate every kind word and sentiment. Much love to all of you! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. - Tamara J. B.
Brent, it's on you to give her a big hug from all of us tomorrow. And say hello to baby M while you're at it. :-D - Corinne L
Jed
My sweetie Colleen is the best wife ever! She has been taking excellent care of me. When I got home from surgery, she had all sorts of frozen treats waiting for me, including ice cream and Avengers popsicles and strawberry parfait. She also had picked me up the two "Fantastic Four" movies and "Drag Me to Hell" on DVD. I am a very lucky man.
I love and adore her so much. :) - Jed
I love Drag Me to Hell....also yeah she is awesome. - Mary Carmen
I've never seen it, but I've been wanting to. - Jed

Yay!! Canada!!! - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Yeah the offer came out of nowhere. What is a passport like a hundred bucks or is it more now? I've never had one - Joe "The Anvil" Pierce from Android

I'm waiting for that couples skate moment with the right girl—any girl—at the roller rink, yeah play that rock ballad, dim the lights and spin up the mirror ball old.
I miss roller rinks. All the ones we had out here closed years ago. :( I'm sure I could find one deep the heart of the Bay Area, but...y'know. I'm old. - Hookuh Tinypants
*fist bumpage* - Micah
A friend in SF goes down to Redwood City to get his fix. Surely there has to be something closer to you than that, though. - Spidra Webster
I just googled and found out the Stardust, the last 'retro' rink I went to in greater Vancouver in the 90s closed down in 2005. :(( - Micah
The one in Milpitas just closed...pretty sure Redwood City's the last one left :-( - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
There's one in Roseville, Amanda! Probably the same distance for you as finding one in the Bay area. - Corinne L
