Desperately need to spend some time cleaning my house and reconnecting with my kids, so my online time will be sporadic for at least the next few days. Be good, children! - Melly - #TeamMarina
off...offline?? noooooooo!!!!!!!!!! you can't do that! reconnecting with kids = good. cleaning = bad! skip the cleaning thing! - Sir Shuping is just sir
One of my cats has a sore on his leg; if he were a human, it would basically be where his wrist meets his hand (basically where the extra claw is at the top of a cat's paw). The basic research I've done says that we should clean the sore with antiseptic scrub, but recommends against peroxide or alcohol (apparently they can damage the paw pads).
Any ideas what I should use instead? - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
I bought some saline wound cleanser, and some Neosporin wound cleanser. We'll give those a shot. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Sorry I didn't see this earlier. I use warm salty water. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Thanks, Melly. I've been soaking his foot in warm, salty water once or twice a day, but I'm going to try some actual antiseptic, too. It's tough to see exactly what kind of sore he has, he won't let us look closely enough to see. Hoping he gets better quickly. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE from WinForFeed

Crying my eyes out at 4 am because 3 months is not enough time. I can't stop thinking that we're gonna be homeless again.
OK. Deep breaths. *gentle hugs* - Pete : Team Marina
How can we help? - Mo Kargas
Oh honey. I'm so sorry you're in this situation. Are there no organizations locally that can help? *big big hugs* - Jenny H. from Android
I don't know. Convince landlords that someone on section 8 who has dogs can be a good tenant? - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
The only advice I'm getting is take my dogs to the shelter. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Is it really hard to find section 8 that will allow dogs? - Jenny H. from Android
Yes. And I'm lying and saying I only have two. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
People who own houses in decent neighborhoods are reluctant to rent to people with a section 8 subsidy because they think they won't maintain the property or be good neighbors. Crime spikes in a neighborhood, people blame it on section 8. So far the only place I've seen that didn't have "no dogs" in the listing was a raggedy little house with a questionable fence, right next to what appears to be a popular illegal dumping site, and had (maybe gang?) graffiti everywhere on the block. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
That's no good. :( - Jenny H. from Android
That's tough. Did the landlord just add the no-pet clause? If so, you might want to check to see if California has laws against that. If they don't, I know it's tough but you might want to start looking for good homes for your dogs. You have to do what is right for your son. I'm so sorry. - Shevonne
((((((Starmama)))))) - vicster: full-bodied
Do you need a reference? I'll speak up for you, you know. *more hugs* - vicster: full-bodied
The landlord won't paint the house so the housing authority will cancel my voucher if I don't find another place by the end of November. I've been trying to find homes for 2 of the dogs for nearly 3 years. I know literally zero people who are responsible pet owners who want chihuahuas. The shelters are overrun with them and they're euthanized in pretty high numbers. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
And I can't even keep my appts straight or keep up with the housework or my medicine or all the things due, how the fuck am I gonna do this? I don't even have gas to go anywhere half the month, how I'm gonna look? Pay owners $20 or more each for credit checks that tell them my credit's horrendous? packing? Organizing? I've barely begun & I'm falling the fuck apart. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Any way to negotiate with the landlord to knock off some of your rent if you round up some volunteers to paint? - Trish R
Paint a 2 story house free? Probably needs old paint removed first. And scaffolding and everything? Don't see that happening for free. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Dude obviously don't give a fuck about us he don't deserve nothing free anyway - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Maybe a chihuahua-specific rescue organization can help you find good homes for the dogs (if you need to do that to be able to get a Section 8 rental that works)? - Spidra Webster
Go to local pet stores in neighborhoods you would actually want to live in, and hang a sign on their bulletin board, asking for an apartment, Sec-8 & pets ok. Be honest and say exactly what you have in the way of pets (amount, size, breed, etc.). - April Russo
I read it could cost $2000 to $4000 and up to paint a two story house. I would donate $200 but i don't think that would get you very far. :( - Todd Hoff
I think April has a good idea, maybe people who like dogs already would be more open. maybe a few references can change some "no dog" people's minds? - Heather
I don't know if there's anything similar in the East Bay but in SF there's an SF Chihuahua Meetup. I know it's not easy for you to get to SF but maybe you know someone who can do it for you. That could be a good place to network for prospective dog owners. I think it's really difficult to rent in the Bay Area with a dog even if it's not Section 8, unfortunately. But I think April's idea is a good one if there's a chance of finding a Section 8 landlord who's fine with dogs. - Spidra Webster
I'm so so sorry. It's just so unfair. I can offer help moving if needed. And boxes. And maybe help finding a home for your dogs? - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
I'm sorry. - Eric - It's My Thing from iPhone
Big squeezey hugs xx - Melly - #TeamMarina
If someone could take Daisy & Violet to a no kill shelter that'd help. I've been emailing orgs but no response yet. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Are they both chihuahuas? How old are they? If you can send a photo, I'll reach out to some friends who are dog-friendly. <3 - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
I'd like a photo of the dogs too, Mandy. I can put the word out on ExploreSacto's Twitter account. - Corinne L
I really want them to go to a rescue, because I haven't socialized or trained them well. There's a go fund me veterinary fund with about $100 so I can include $50 with each dog toward spaying. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
OK, I'll put the word out here. - Corinne L
Mary Carmen
If FF were high school, who would you take to the prom?
Love this question ... Would totally get myself in trouble with my answer :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
I would probably be in the band. But, if not, I would probably be one of the guys lined up asking joey or LB (almost certainly unsuccessfully). - Glen Campbell
Maybe Helen. Or Melly. - Glen Campbell
Or Jenny H. She's hot. - Glen Campbell
Ok, just being honest, I'd be eternally grateful if one of the girls merely glanced in my direction. - Glen Campbell
Hm, Jandy and I went to the same college. And we were both English Lit majors. - Glen Campbell
Zulema. Definitely Zulema. Maybe. - Glen Campbell
I'm too cool for a prom. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
I would go with a bunch of FF girls - T-ra, Tamara J, MC, Colleen, Jill, Holly, Jenn D, Tinypants, Starmama, Katy S, Spidra, Zulema, Shannon, Melly, and Jenny would definitely need to be in that group - and whisper with them about which boys we really like. (ETA: I keep adding names) - Corinne L
I'm sneaking in the booze. - SAM
Ummm...I'd stand bashfully against the wall - Sir Shuping is just sir
B!! - Janet
Ok, if this were really high school, I wouldn't actually have a date. Or be at the prom. But, hey, a guy can dream, can't he? - Glen Campbell
Oh, do I get to wear my tux with tails and cummerbund matching Chuck Taylors again? (Yes, I'm dodging the original question.) - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
Corinne - We will all girl-dance together! - Katy S
I don't do proms - Kevin Johnson
Exactly, Katy! Cue the 80s music and bad 80s dance moves - I am READY! *looks for AquaNet and a fluffy taffeta dress* - Corinne L
I might need a bubble skirt with a hoop in it to keep it floofy. - Katy S
MOTO....Cause I know he knows how to party on the dance floor! - Hedgehog from Android
Hedgie wins! #rumpshaker - Signs Point to LB from Android
Never went to a prom. - Friar Will
You, of course. - Holly's favorite Anna
I will arm wrestle Hedgie for a prom date with B!!! - Janet from FFHound!
I would want entirely too many of y'all to be my date. - Signs Point to LB from Android
I first read that as 'take to pr0n' and was like 0_0. - Ken Gidley
Short list: either Zulema, Jennifer Dittrich, Tamara, Val, or Kristin. Whichever would want to go with an old bunneh. - Steven Perez
I think Lisa would be a fun prom date. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I have to pick just one??! - Melly - #TeamMarina
I'd do the same thing I did in high school: skip prom, and go to King's Dominion (or, maybe I'd change things up and go to Hershey Park) with my best friend(s), instead. Who's coming with me? - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
who would i be taking? you mean who would be on the long list of girls (since we're talking high school here) telling me to get lost? i think it'd be short only cos i'd give up after the third attempt. i'd be the mopey long-haired dude in black hanging out next to one of the PA columns at the dance. - Big Joe Silence
Sir Shuping. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Joe Silence. - Melly - #TeamMarina
The Friar (is that allowed?) - Melly - #TeamMarina
Melly and t-ra would be among them, that's for certain. others as well, but i.. i... *stammers, then runs away backstage to read the manual for the mixing console for comfort* - Big Joe Silence
Not Eric, because he'd be at Sammy Hagar's B'day Bash without me. - Melly - #TeamMarina
The Bird Whisperer. - Melly - #TeamMarina
If Helen says no to Glen, then him. - Melly - #TeamMarina
I could be here all day. - Melly - #TeamMarina
I go with who I went with last time. - Eric - It's My Thing from iPhone
*saves a dance with Melly* - Steven Perez
Yes, Melly, it is allowed. If only you had been in my high school. :^) - Friar Will
Stag. I'd go stag. It's for the best, really ;) - Brent Schaus
At my school, !984 is known as "The Year Without a Prom" because nobody wanted to go. We don't do proms. :P That was the year they started doing the Senior Cruise, because it was easier to drag us all on a ship and take us out to sea for the night, after graduation, than it was to get us to buy a prom ticket. - April Russo
Y'all make me blush!! - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
I would ask Shevonne to join the girl's party with me. I'm surprisingly shy when it comes to asking men out sadly. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Amanda. She's my home girl for always and eternity. But I'll dance with EVERYONE. I love dancing. :D - Jenny H. from Android
^I'm on FF... - Eivind
Hush, boy. SOOKEH'S MAAAAAHN. Er, I mean. JENNEH'S MAAAAAHN. :D - Hookuh Tinypants
:DDD - Jenny H.
Johnny, but he's wearing the dress. - Mo Kargas
Megan I think. She'd probably be singing with the band and I'd have lots of cred but then I'd spend most of my time spiking the punch with Scott and I'd try and look up Johnny's dress and there'd be a scene and I'd get in trouble. - MoTO: Team Marina
I'd definitely be in Corinne's Grrrl Crew and attempt to shimmy my way across the dance floor to have at least one dance with everyone I wanted to based on which song was playing. Depending on how much spike B and Scott managed to get into the punch, I'd probably try to steal more than a few kisses before the end of the night. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I just want an invite to the after party. - ♫Robot Chicken, Trainer♫
KeshaB623 of course. Happy Wife. Happy life. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Johnny's no stranger to donning frocks. - Melly - #TeamMarina
I'm in Corinne's girl gang and we're gonna take a bunch of ratchet pics. Then I'm going outside to smoke weed with whoever wants to have some. Then I go inside & dance with all the boys who came stag. Then I dance with the boys who have dates. Then I dance with their dates. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Don't kids go to Denny's and such after prom? I've never been but seen drunk fancy dressed kids at all nite joints plenty of times. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Starmama is an equal opportunity prom attendee. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
I didn't go to my senior prom (heart broken because the girl I wanted to go with was forbidden from going with me by her parents). I regret that to this day. My friends said they had a blast. I ended up going with her the summer after my Freshman year though. Took one of her friends as a favor to her but still got to dance with my girl so I was on cloud 9. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Do you have to have a date to go to prom? I went solo to my senior formal - my date got in trouble and wasn't allowed to go (he later ended up in jail). - Melly - #TeamMarina
No, Melly. And you are definitely in the girl gang. Though if you keep sneaking off with boys we are going to talk about you. *stops to pose for ratchet pic with Starmama & t-ra* *whispers about boys by punch bowl* - Corinne L
Someone took my date, and no one asked me so ICE CREAM at my house :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
me and Starmama apparently do prom the same way. of course. also, I'd be plotting how to get Shannon into a slow dance with her dream date. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
Colleen. I never went to my prom, actually. - Jed from iPhone
Penguin - she could teach me to dance followed by Anne, Jessie, Kelly, Andi, and Tamara as they are all confirmed fun. Oh and Jenny for nature brains and superwoman stories. - Steve C Team Marina
Can I be the DJ? - Steven Perez
You & Eric should both DJ! - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Dream date might hurt himself laughting ;-) - Shannon - GlassMistress

"Books: As with food and clothing, they’re a commodity that elicits status anxiety for many people, particularly the insecure. And wherever there is status anxiety, there are potential minefields. We need to tread with the lightness of meringue." - Katy S from Bookmarklet
I love the part "On Bookspotting" - Melly - #TeamMarina
Is the reshelving tip true? - Melly - #TeamMarina
I'm really not sure about bookstores. Many libraries have carts out for that. - Katy S
improper reshelving used to be a big annoyance when I ran a bookstore. Proper reshelving didn't matter (it does in a library, because we count uses as well as checkouts), but of course EVERYONE thinks they are reshelving properly. - Marianne

Dude, I will _never_ understand extroverts. Why do you talk so much?! I mean, you can talk just, damn, don't talk to me. #strangerdanger
Serious question: Is there a relationship between posting frequency on social media and introversion? Do introverts post less? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I have no idea. There wouldn't be an easy way to record that unless you specify what each user is before gathering data. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
But then it wouldn't be accurate because introversion to extroversion is in degrees. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Anyway I suspect extroverts talk to actual people more than they would tweet to the ether. You know? - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
I post an embarrassingly high amount, between FB and FF and Twitter, and I think I'm an introvert. - Andrew C (✔)
I consider myself an extroverted hermit. I'll talk up a storm online, but don't try to drag me to a party or invite me anywhere. - April Russo
Stephen, I'm not sure it's related. I'm definitely an introvert and I don't post a lot now. However, I used to post a lot in the past. I think it just comes and goes with my mood. Mostly, I just think no one really cares what I am seeing/doing/feeling throughout the day, so I keep it to myself. It's an interesting question, though. - Jenny H. from Android
I'm an introvert and can sometimes talk wayyyyyyyyy too much. But then I will need to hibernate for a week to recover. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Oh god if I don't get my recovery time, _everyone_ suffers. I NEED MY ALONE TIME TO RECHARGE! - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android

Did you ever own a 45 record? If you did, name one.
To my shame: Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft - The Carpenters. - Friar Will
Blondie - One Way or Another. Bought at the drug store in my grandma's town. I bought Doobie Brothers - Minute by Minute at the same time. I bought them solely on the way the label looked (MCA and WB). - Eric - It's My Thing
Sure. My first 45s were my mom and aunt's old 45s from the '50s. Including a Sun 45 of "Great Balls of Fire". First 45 I received as a gift was "Fly, Robin, Fly". First 45rpm I bought with my own $ was "Walking on Thin Ice" by Yoko Ono (I bought plenty of LPs before that...but I was 15 before I bought a 45.) - Spidra Webster
Rock Around the Clock. Wake Up, Little Susie. Every Day. Peggy Sue. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
Disco Duck. - Joe
Pink Floyd - Another Brick In The Wall Pt.2 (can't remember the B-side), The Beatles - Penny Lane/Strawberry Fields Forever (mono), Tubby The Tuba... quite a few more, not including the fsckloads of "PROMOTIONAL USE ONLY" and/or "NOT FOR SALE" label-owned 45s i inherited from my maternal grandfather who was a radio engineer for WNBC and later WMCA in NY from the 30s til the 70s. - Big Joe Silence
Wow, those WNBC era 45s must be quite the collection. - Eric - It's My Thing
"One Of My Turns" was the B-side to that PF single. yeah, there's some amazing stuff in his collection. also alot of his personal 78s in those boxes as well. too bad i no longer have a turntable that plays 78s! - Big Joe Silence
The first music I ever bought were two 45s. I Yam What I Yam by Robin Williams with He Needs Me by Shelly Duvall on the B side. Lady by Kenny Rogers. I bought them at Payless Drug Store. I must have been 6 years old. - Rodfather from Android
We have a whole bunch of them in the living room. I couldn't tell you what's on any of them. When I was kid? Damn...I know there was an EWF one. The hundreds of others? Never got to touch them. - Anika
Karma Kameleon. - Betsy
"But Not Tonight" by Depeche Mode. Among others. - Bren
Some Hiphop 45s, Big Daddy Kane - Smooth Operator. Tone Loc - Wild Thing, Young MC - Bust a Move, Three Times Dope - Funky Dividends (which got warped sitting in a hot car). - Eric - It's My Thing
True Blue by Madonna - limited edition blue vinyl. I still have it & all my 45s from the 70s & 80s. - Corinne L
The strangest one I own may be a European Hiphop group BVSMP - I Need You where the lyrics are split between the A side and B side. - Eric - It's My Thing
Half the 45s I bought were Doctor Who related, apparently. - Betsy
Redbone "Come & Get Your Love" - Gabrielle from FFHound(roid)!
So many 7 inches! It's the punk rock way. Or used to be anyhow. My first one? I think it was the Billy Idol Sweet Sixteen single? - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
i still occasionally get 45s (both singles and EPs) in the post from current bands via friends. it's not a dead format! - Big Joe Silence
Janet Jackson - Control. - Jenny H. from Android
I hoard them like Pokemon. - kendrak from Android
I still have one. An aria and a duet from Händel's Messiah sung by Mom. - Uli
Crimson and Clover (Tommy James and the Shondells) - Janet
My first 45 was American Pie. I had good taste even back then. - Glen Campbell
All By Myself--Eric Carmen. - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
I still do own a few. The first 45 I bought on my own (not pilfered from my mom's collection) was Sweet Home Alabama (I was going through a phase, I've since cured myself of it). - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
So many to choose from: Cut The Cake by AWB comes to mind. - MoTO: Team Marina
When i was a lil kid I used the 45 to listen to the Fairy Tales using this - Xabaras (G.O.)
Back in the mid 80s, we had a jukebox filled with 45s. Luckily for us, the local Sound Warehouse had 45s, so finding party music was never a problem. - Steven Perez
I still have about 15 of my 45s. First one that came to mind is Minnie Riperton - Here We Go. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I think my first 45 was Rocky Mountain High. My brother had the 45 for 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover - it was in constant play. - Elizabeth Brown
Honky Tonk Women by the Rolling Stones. - Son of Groucho
"Funkytown" by Lipps Inc. I still have all my 45's along with all of my parents' 45's. Love that stuff. <3 - Hookuh Tinypants
"Incense and Peppermints" by the Strawberry Alarm Clock was the first record I ever bought. I would have been 12. I can't remember what was on the flip side. - Ken Morley
I'm pretty sure the first 45 I got was "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" by Elton John and Kiki Dee in 1976. - Steele Lawman
Yes, Steele, that was the one we listened to incessantly. I also remember just where it developed a skip. Good times. - Mama Lawson
<3 mom. - Steele Lawman
The first one I ever bought was Paul McCartney's Mull of Kintyre in '77 or so.. My brother and I loved the song. But we hated the B-Side, Girl's School. - Stephen Mack
Panama/Drop Dead Legs by Van Halen - Brent Schaus
Passion by Bang The Drum. - Melly - #TeamMarina
I have tons of them. Just grabbing the first one (in the dark): Tequilla - The Champs / Walkin' After Midnight - Patsy Cline - April Russo
My radio show right now is nothing but. - kendrak from Android
I'll name 3: Julian Lennon- Too Late For Goodbyes/Let Me Be, Tears for Fears- Shout/??, Power Station- Get It On/Go to Zero. And I'm pretty sure all three of them are either in our garage or my parent's basement! - Elena

I got up, got breakfast for the kids, and had a shower. Put on a load of washing, had my own breakfast, then hung said load and folded a few things off the airer. Started a second load, finished tidying the lounge room (made the kids do their mess) and gave it a quick vacuum. Now to start on a couple of days worth of dishes...
I start a 4-hour shift in one hour ten minutes, will see how much I can get done by then (with many breaks, of course!) - Melly - #TeamMarina
Plates done. Ate lunch. Cutlery done. - Melly - #TeamMarina
I put the cups in to soak and wiped down the benches and table. Have to log on for my shift now! - Melly - #TeamMarina
