I'm sad mine isn't pineapple, that one is supposed to be the best https://www.flickr.com/photos... - Meg VMeg
What flavor is it? - Zamms
Whoa, it's peach, I think. - Meg VMeg
OR PERSIMMON? - Zamms
Shit, is that an option? It's very floral is all I can say. - Meg VMeg
I wish it WERE an option. I'd drink that like whoa. - Zamms
Holy fucking shit, Dave Foley's in the 5th season of Justified.
Dang, maybe it's just the one episode. - Meg VMeg
when does it start? - MoTO: #TeamMarina
It's already done maybe? I'm watching on Amazon Prime, but I'm only up to Season 5, Episode 2. NO SPOILERZ. - Meg VMeg
Final season starts in January! #nospoilers - holly #ravingfangirl from iPhone
Oh. Reading is fundamental. I saw season 5. I don't remember that ep. - MoTO: #TeamMarina
He's in episode 1. He's one of the Canadians (of course). They're talking about Tim Hortons. - Meg VMeg
Heh :) - Brent Schaus from iPhone
I wonder if Dave Foley knows Yost, with the Canadian connection? EDIT: apparently, they're both from Etobicoke. - Brent Schaus from iPhone
Procrastinating on starting dinner because I'll have to take the batteries out of the smoke detector first...
Yep, yep, yep, yep. Yep. I'll just keep saying yep. Yep.
Yep, glad you asked! Yep! - Meg VMeg
Whenever people enthusiastically agree with me, I assume they're drunk.
Oh yes, absolutely. - bentley
beyond the slightest shadow of a hint of doubt. - Big Joe Silence
*tips glass* - MoTO: #TeamMarina
I like the taste of ramen okay, but I hate eating it.
huh. I am more or less neutral on the taste, but adore the mouthfeel. - Marianne
It's more the necessary amount of mouth-handtool-noodle-liquid coordination that annoys me. I hate eating cold cereal for similar reasons. - Meg VMeg
this is why i use less liquid. - kendrak
Grade B maple syrup is my candidate for the 5th basic food group. What's yours?
Chocolate. - Katy S
Cheese. - RepoRat
Fermented things. - kendrak from Android
Um. All of the above. That's one food group, right? - Kirsten
Cheese dip. - ~Courtney F
Agreeing with Meg. - Julian
tea (and I go with grade A maple syrup, light amber) - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Cheese. Always and forever - Catherine Pellegrino from iPod
It's actually quite a relief to realize that my opinion doesn't matter on so many hot button issues.
seriously. - RepoRat
It's so much pressure, you all. - Zamms
This is why I have stopped voting. - Steele Lawman from Android
*glares at Steele*... Votes matter way more than opinions. MvM, your realization likely means that your opinions are way more well considered than most - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Frito pie for dinner. FRITO PIE FOR DINNER. After wandering around town all day, eating (other) unhealthy whatnot. At least I walked?
unhealthy food is destroyed by walking and positive thinking! - Sir Shuping is just sir
The Shake Shack in Brooklyn has a site-specific "concrete" (like a Blizzard) that's vanilla frozen custard blended with a slice of pumpkin pie from the local pie-mongers. Also had to try these donuts: http://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes... - Meg VMeg
Oh man, if I hadn't downed an entire restaurant of Indian food today, I would totally want that concrete. - Zamms
ohhhhh, is that the one made with 4 & 20 Blackbirds pie?!?!? want. - holly #ravingfangirl
Yes. It was so good. - Meg VMeg
Come visit! - Meg VMeg
Thank you for reminding me that I keep meaning to try Frito pie! Adding it to the queue. - Catherine Pellegrino from iPod
i need to visit, meg. i really do. - holly #ravingfangirl
Not a fan of the water enthusiasts.
where? i tend to hang with them. - kendrak
This is Pokemon-related, right? - Steele Lawman
If by "water" they mean "coffee," I'm totally on board. - Steele Lawman
I drink water all day. It does not make me more energetic. - laura x from iPhone
When I drink water all day, I have lots of energy that I use to go to the bathroom. - Zamms
IT'S A MYTH. A MYTH. A MYTH. http://www.snopes.com/medical... - Meg VMeg
*tinkles energetically* - Big Joe Silence
I just drink it cause I'm thirsty. - laura x from iPhone
Oof: not only is it a myth, drinking too much can lead to hyponatremia. I used to be an involuntary water enthusiast: I didn't care about health effects, I just drank a lot of water out of habit or routine like some people snack on chips and accidentally eat the whole bag. Never understood why I felt like I was getting dehydration headaches all the time regardless until I spoke with a... more... - Mark Trapp
Haagen-Dazs Bourbon Pecan Praline is pretty fucking good.
Do you have any favorite sweet potato recipes? No marshmallows.
oh boy, do i. hold on. - holly #ravingfangirl
sweet potato & corn cakes. sweet potato, brussel sprout, and bacon hash. sweet potato, plaintain and onion sauté. and of course, sweet potato fries with ras el hanout, that i could eat all damn day. - jambina
I like them baked with fixings as well, or if you want to go more sweet, you can serve them with butter and cinnamon (or apple pie spices.) - Jennifer Dittrich
I do not know ras el hanout, but sweet potato fries with aioli are the fucking business. - laura x from iPhone
Roasted with olive oil, rosemary & salt & pepper. - Corinne L
sweet potato pudding cake (no raisins) http://www.cooking.com/Recipes... - holly #ravingfangirl
these are our default sweet potatoes at the holiday dinners now: http://www.thekitchn.com/recipe-... - holly #ravingfangirl
i am having this salad for dinner tonight: http://pinchofyum.com/roasted... - holly #ravingfangirl
YES. I make mine with brown sugar, bourbon, pecans, and heavy cream. - Soup in a TARDIS
laura x - ras el hanout are a blend of couscous-y spices with cumin and other fun things. i put that shit on everything. also, #fuckyeahaioli - jambina
Oh wow, these are great! - Meg VMeg
Oh, nom nom nom. Must get some of this ras el hanout stuff. - laura x from iPhone
I just make them and then mash them with butter. - John (bird whisperer)
Yeah, that's what I do, then put dal on top. - Meg VMeg
Black bean and sweet potato chili. http://www.generationyfoodie.com/2012... (I do the canned beans variation.) - bentley
i made a curry that was something like this: http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes... but not that exact recipe. it was good - Christina Pikas
This is a recipe that I grew up with and was the first and only way I ever ate sweet potatoes till I was an adult. You start with raw, fresh sweet potatoes, in the skins. You wash them but you do not remove the skins. You wrap them in foil and bake them, like you would a normal baked potato. But, before you serve them, you split them open, mix up 1 small can of frozen concentrated... more... - April Russo
"It would appear, in these midterm elections, that the Republicans appealed to an older, more conservative demographic."
Someone passed a job interview to be able to bring us those sage remarks - Steele Lawman from Android
ALL HAIL KING DATA - Meg VMeg
Why has the word "wheelhouse" become so popular in the last few years? Or has it? (I tried to use Google Ngram Viewer to check, but they only go up to 2007.)
"Reminder: Leaving early @ Annually from 4pm to 6pm on October 31"
It's a freaking jungle out there. - Meg VMeg
It makes me wonder how I keep from going under. - Stephen Francoeur
My parents received a robocall encouraging them to vote early, but it's Halloween-themed, so it's Dracula and then he wants them to vote a straight Republican ticket. And I can't tell if it's a joke? A surreptitious Democratic Party ad? Or if the Republicans are truly owning up to being inhuman and draining the lifeblood of the working class.
weird.mp3 249 KB
considering how tone-deaf the GOP is, especially here in TX, this might actually be from them. - Big Joe Silence
I have to say that I actually like this compared to most political robocalls I've gotten. - Spidra Webster
consider who the messenger is, tho. and i don't mean Dracula. - Big Joe Silence
I'm with Meg. It may well be a Dem message given that they have Dracula (a bloodsucker) voting the "straight Republican ticket". - Spidra Webster
Eating tacos in bed. Again.
as you do. - holly #ravingfangirl
sounds good - jambina
currently eating burritos in bed. kindred souls, we are. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
The taco truck now sells burritos, but I noticed too late! - Meg VMeg
I remember that Squeeze song... - Spidra Webster
(ours are homemade & don't taste Mexican at all, but they're beef n cheese in a tortilla, so they're burritos!) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Party at Megs! - Steve C Team Marina
Livin' la vida taco. - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
There are 11 versions of GoToMeeting installed on my goddamn computer.
And, did you go to the meeting? - bentley
I have been to at least 11 meetings. - Meg VMeg
"Officials Seek People Exposed to Him" Sounds...dirty.
Bill de Blasio's in for a rough few weeks, I'm guessing. - Meg VMeg
Huh, it was a bowling alley in Williamsburg. I was curious because there's one near my house, and there are only 4 in Brooklyn. - Meg VMeg
Ebola tv is very similar to hurricane tv. - Meg VMeg
de Blasio is probably wishing for the halcyon days when people just made fun of him for using a fork to eat pizza. - Mark Trapp
Sometimes the rage is the only thing that keeps you going.
I thought it was coffee. - Steele Lawman
A pot of Ragewell House. - Spidra Webster
Against the machine, all rage is possible. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Have you ever bought a Macbook battery off Ebay/somewhere? How did that work out for you?
The old ones that are user-replaceable without voiding the warranty? I used to buy them all the time from MacMall and MacConnection: no problems. Haven't bought any of the aftermarket batteries when the switched to the non-user-replaceable ones, though. - Mark Trapp
intriguing... - Meg VMeg
Yes I have bought them for my old Macbook Pro with no problems. I just read reviews first and then found that model on cheapest site. - Steve C Team Marina
I would avoid used, because MacBook replaceable batteries warp, and you won't know if it's warped until you install it and your machine kernel panics. #btdt #severaltimes - RepoRat
If you need a 2007 model MBP (pre-unibody) battery let me know. I bought a replacement battery but the laptop it's in died. The battery itself is probably fine - I can meter it and see if it still seems to be in shape and if so send it to you. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
DEAR NYTIMES, SHE CALLED THE FUCKING *CDC* BEFORE GETTING ON THE PLANE (BECAUSE SHE'S A FUCKING *NURSE*) AND SHE WAS CLEARED TO FLY. SO CHECK YOUR STORY BEFORE MAKING IT SOUND LIKE SHE'S AN IDIOT. LOVE, MEG
Walking behind a man wearing a suit, and thinking, "OMG YOU ARE WEARING SO MUCH FABRIC RIGHT NOW."
I don't get the return of the 3-piece suit. That's crazy and should have remained last seen in the 70s. - Stephen Francoeur
I love a three piece suit. If I'm gonna be uncomfortable, I wanna look really pretty great even with the jacket off. - Andrew C (✔)
(that said, I haven't worn a suit in years, not even to weddings.) - Andrew C (✔)
I love a gent in a suit. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
It's just so much...fabric. - Meg VMeg
I only need a vest if I'm putting my rival railroad companies out of business. - Zamms
What about the top hat? - Joe
It's the cane that runs the trains. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
three piece suits are fantastic. - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist
They look nice, but I always feel sorry for guys wearing them. - Jenny H. from Android
A properly tailored suit is really not at all uncomfortable to wear. - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist from iPhone
Now that you say this, I am seriously tempted to wear a three piece suit when I go in for my TSA Pre appointment. Also: a fedora. - Zamms
AND A STOGIE! - Zamms
Leave the blackjack at home, though. - Stephen Francoeur
Good point. It'd cause more problems than it solved. - Zamms
Suits are okay... in the winter. - John (bird whisperer)
What would you like it to be made of Meg? - Mr. The Jason Fleming
I love a man in a waistcoat *sigh* - Marina's Godmother :-)
I've got a Harris tweed jacket in my office, for which I paid $10 at a local thrift shop. It's so much better than a cardigan or the fleece pullover that I used to wear. - DJF
I say Hell Yes! to the three piece suit. I love a dapper looking gentleman. I think the point of all that fabric is to say, "Look at all this fabric I can afford to wear..." or something like that. - Laura Krier
After carding me at the liquor store, the cashier said, "You don't look 39!" I'm not 39 (no offense to the 39-year-olds in the crowd). I said, "You don't either!" She said, "I'm 20. My mom is 39. I'm going to be so sad when she turns 40 because then she'll be really old." Yeah. "Have a great night!" I said.
Didn't realize that "By The Time I Get To Arizona" (Public Enemy) was a reference to "By The Time I Get To Phoenix" (Glenn Campbell). It is, right?
God I love this song (Public Enemy). - Meg VMeg
I love the Glenn Campbell song too. There has to be a remix combining them, right? - Zamms
Good question. It's not this, but it's close? http://www.youtube.com/watch... Somewhere in the middle, I guess. - Meg VMeg
I like that. Also, Isaac Hayes decided "...Phoenix" needed to be like 20 minutes long: http://youtu.be/9bbdJSW3pvM - Zamms
Wow. - Meg VMeg
I mean, why not? - Zamms
Depends where you leave from, how long it takes to get there. - Meg VMeg
Flagstaff? - Zamms
Don't forget Winona! - Meg VMeg
Kingman, Barstow, San Bernardino... - Meg VMeg
Over 2000 miles all the way! - Zamms
DJ Alan Greenspan is also a great DJ name. - Meg VMeg
Who on earth suggested that Depeche Mode cover Route 66? - Meg VMeg
Yes! It's so cool. Now that I think about it, I still haven't done the Kingman to San Bernadino bit. - Zamms
I haven't done Chicago to OKC, but everything after that. - Meg VMeg
Route 66 in Missouri and Oklahoma is pretty good. Except for Tulsa. That was rough. - Zamms
"THE MOST POWERFUL STORM WE HAVE EVER SEEN ON THIS PLANET so far this year"
Brian Williams really just said that. Direct quote. - Meg VMeg
if he starts rapping... - Big Joe Silence
...then we're back where we started? http://www.youtube.com/watch... - Meg VMeg
where and when is this storm? - jambina
Japan. Vongfong is its name. - Meg VMeg
When I put a smiley face emoticon in my email to you, I was being sincere. Don't think I can't tell that the one in your response is only mocking me.

Did anyone here ever try that terrifying recipe where you make dulce de leche by boiling a can of sweetened condensed milk? And maybe it explodes? http://thetoughcookie.com/2014...
When I was little, my friend Gina's grandma used to make it that way. No cans ever exploded. - Jennifer Dittrich
that sounds like a fun experiment to do in a friend's kitchen. - kendrak
I think these days you can just buy precooked cans of dulce de leche, or at least in Latin markets or big supermarkets with a decent Latin items aisle. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
Yes. We use it for caramel tart. - Johnny from iPhone
My friend makes caramel for dipping that way, but she uses a slow cooker. I haven't tried it myself, but the results are so good. - Corinne L
Ah, slow cooker is smart. - Meg VMeg
have you read Sweet Potato Queens? mentioned there prominently as "danger sauce" I still want to try it. - Christina Pikas
I learned that trick in Zimbabwe. We made all sorts of desserts but by far my favorite is to just dip the spoon in the can. "Danger sauce" is a great name I think I'll adopt it. - Lnorigb from FFHound!
I make that all the time, for banoffi pie (banana toffee). - Iain - locked out of ff
And it never explodes? - Meg VMeg
No, not so long as you keep an eye on the pan, and never let it boil dry. You don't have it on a rolling boil, but it's still a bit of a leap of faith. You have to trust that it'll be OK, and it will. - Iain - locked out of ff
Just keep a kettle with boiling water in it, ready to go. That way, you can keep topping up the level of water in the pan with the condensed milk cans - Iain - locked out of ff
My parent's made it a few times. No explosions. - Holly's favorite Anna from Android
I've done it. I also emptied a can of condensed milk into a pan. Bake it for 60-90 minutes, stirring every 30. It was delicious! - Gabrielle from FFHound(roid)!
my cousin exploded a can, but that's because she wasn't keeping an eye on it and let it boil dry. she's the only person i've ever heard of who had a can explode. - ~Courtney F
"Hey, kid, let's get some ice cream." DAMN RIGHT WE WILL GET SOME ICE CREAM, JOE! Damn right. - Zamms
The Top Ten List on tonight's Jimmy Fallon Show is about Ello. Y'all, we are "of age".
Fallon does Top Ten lists? Letterman hasn't even finished retiring! - Andrew C (✔) from Android
