I told Em that since it's hot, she could just run around in her undies today. She took me literally. #fb

I keep seeing this RTd and it's bothering me it's devoid of context (stripped of it's context). He was talking about Ferguson. This is the first part of the tweet: - Anika

Teases. I've been seeing concepts like this for since I was a kid. Some of those were 20 years older than me. I wish they'd just do it already. - Anika

I am so effing tired my eyes keep closing. I'm halfway through a modding shift and it's draaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaggiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing. I can actually have a nap today, in one hour and 22 minutes. Not that I'm counting.

RT @rellarc79: I hope smoking drivers are smart enough to not throw their cigarette butts out the car window on a day like today.
Or at any other time. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
True that. Extremely high fire danger in many parts of Oz today though, making it particularly dangerous. - Melly - #TeamMarina from FFHound!
So I just realized that the animal decal on Karina's wall that I've been telling her is a hippo is actually a rhino. #parentfail
That's three years of therapy right there for Karina. - Steve C Team Marina
And then when her teacher calls to tell you of her inexplicable inability to recognize a hippo..... - WarLord
This is like the adoptive dad who assumed his ethnic Korean kid was Chinese all over again! - Andrew C (✔)
That's ok, There was this big glass cookie jar than nobody in the family could identify what animal it was supposed to be, for almost four decades. There was disagreement over whether it was an elephant (based on its feet and tail) or a pig (based on it's face) or some sort of freakishly weird combo animal (which was the most acceptable answer). It wasn't until it was finally passed down to me that I got a chance to see it again, and figured out it was a hippo. - April Russo
Can we see a pic of this rhino so we know how much to mock you? - SAM
^ That. - Kristin
It's a rhino who lost his horn in an unfortunate poaching incident but lived to tell the tale. - Melly - #TeamMarina
April, that sounds a bit like the wildebeest (gnu) that legend says was made from leftover parts: the head of a warthog, the stripes of a zebra, the horns and neck of a buffalo, the body of a cow, and the mane and tail of a lion. - Anne Bouey
Actually, it just looks like a pig with elephant feet. - April Russo
It's clearly got a horn, but I'm usually looking at it in semi-darkness before we've turned on the lights in her room. I didn't notice the horn until recently, and she knows hippos from "But Not the Hippopotamus" so I just kind of starting pointing it out to her as a hippo without really looking at it. - Jandy

Em's back at daycare today. It's SO NICE to be able to work without interruptions! ;o) #fb

Confirmed case of mumps at my daughter's daycare. FFS. #StopAVN
Oh no! I had that as a kid. SUCKED. - Yvonne Renee
See, if i ran a daycare I wouldn't admit any kid that didn't have proof of vaccinations. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
My kid sister brought mumps home from kindergarten. She gave it to me, then I gave it to my mom. - bentley
At present, kids don't have to be fully vaccinated to attend daycare or school. If a kids gets a VPD there are really strict rules to follow though - eg notification procedures, and non-vaccinated children are excluded for a certain period of time. There is a push to make vaccination mandatory (except in the case of true medical contraindication) for enrollment which I fully support. We already have stupid loopholes for religious exemption though and they would probably still apply to enrollment. - Melly - #TeamMarina
When my kid started school I had to provide a complete immunization record. When she had to go to the hospital the admit lady posed the classic/understood "Just the usual childhood illnesses?" I then realized that she had had NONE of them. Not one kid she knew ever had the "usual childhood illnesses." - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
Oh no. - Joe
Licensed daycares in our state have to have shot records on hand for all children. Also that they've been evaluated for risk of high lead exposure. - Christina Pikas from iPhone
MMR was always a requirement - Eric - Regulate
The likelihood of Emily getting it is very, very slim. But if she did get it, I'd wanna smash some anti-vaxxer skulls. - Melly - #TeamMarina

I'm sick, and my dad is making sure I have what I need. I love when I say, "Daddy" and he responds, "Whatty?" Leave him. #fb

Shannon - GlassMistress
Dear Emma, yes that is the saddest "I have a sick tummy face" ever but mama knows what you ate to get a sick tummy and your dad and I have spent a great deal of time cleaning up after you. Therefore it seems we have misplaced our sympathy. Love, Mama.
Be well, Emma! - Melly - #TeamMarina
She's refusing food (rice and rice water) but drinking so I'm not too worried about her. If we can get through the day without her yarfing in my office I'll call it a win. - Shannon - GlassMistress
So, what DID she eat? Or don't I want to know? - Melly - #TeamMarina
You really don't, but I'll tell you anyway. She found a long dead rabbit in the yard and was kind enough to bring me some - blargh! Last week both dogs spent undue time under one of the trees looking up. This weekend undue time under the tree sniffing around. Saturday night Em carried a femur into the house. Sunday she delivered a hide (no head, maybe one bone in it) to the back door.... more... - Shannon - GlassMistress
Awww poor pup. Poor Shannon. - bentley
Delicious! - Melly - #TeamMarina from FFHound!
I love this story. I do hope Emma is ok, but I support the humans' misplaced sympathy. (also, we haz a cat named Emma) - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an

Taps fixed, lawn mowed, fridge issue sorted. Car service on Friday, dog wash next weekend. #gettingshitdone @bennybucko
Next will be an exhaust fan in the toilet, and seeing if we can afford air con in at least one room (either our bedroom or the lounge room). - Melly - #TeamMarina
We should probably see about finishing the bathroom off too - it just needs a medicine cabinet and curtain. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Then we can renovate the toilet! I never thought I could get so excited about doing up the place where you shit. - Melly - #TeamMarina
We already have the actual toilet. I want to be super frugal and use the leftover white paint and beige tiles from the bathroom, but Josh says it'll look too plain with the white toilet. But I say you can add some colour with a curtain and some wall art. - Melly - #TeamMarina
And really, does it matter if it looks plain? It's the toilet! - Melly - #TeamMarina
I just want to get it over and done with for as little as possible. - Melly - #TeamMarina

I love that her rebuke is basically, "No, YOU are extreme! My way is the right way!" which is not particularly convincing. Seriously, we internalize enough judgement about our appearance without other people going around policing it. At least in my office, choosing not to wear makeup does NOT set me apart from my "tribe," as she puts it. We have a mix of professional women who do, don't, and sometimes do, wear makeup at my job and we seem to all treat each other with respect. - Jennifer Dittrich
I can't say I've ever had anyone in a work environment consider me less professional or capable for not wearing make-up. I think it's important to dress for your particular environment, and in most cases that involves being neat, but personally I've never seen it extend to make-up, perfectly styled hair, or hair removal. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Bit of a fangirl moment when Natasha Mitchell RT's my reply to her, which was that I hoped any employer who had a problem with "fuzzy legs" extended that to male legs... - Melly - #TeamMarina
I'm not sure that anti-makeup = anti-beauty - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
It doesn't, but it is a lot easier to make them sound extreme. - Jennifer Dittrich
I may be wrong but isn't "skin care" and "grooming" a different thing to makeup, lipstick and curling your eyebrows? "I am not afraid of looking older, but I do want to look my best.".. best what, exactly? Even if you do it to feel good, aren't you still just trying to look acceptable to the societal standard (often imposed by legacy and current misogynistic powers?). - Johnny
I see them as different for sure. - Melly - #TeamMarina
At every single office job I've had, I've been told my lack of makeup is unprofessional. I ignored them because it usually came from women who thought they had to wear it & most of them looked like rabid clowns. - Anika
Even when I worked in a government job I didn't wear make-up and nobody ever mentioned it. - Melly - #TeamMarina

That's so me tonight. Up since 5am, dealing with the demands of a sick, vomiting child whilst trying to fit in the usual household chores and work three jobs. I'm shattered but not done yet *sobs* - Melly - #TeamMarina
Midnight - finally done! Now shower & bed and up soon to do it all again, hopefully without the 5am wake-up and vomiting child though ;o) - Melly - #TeamMarina
Yay, no 5am waking! Now to see if we can get through the day without a vomiting child... - Melly - #TeamMarina from FFHound!
It's hard enough trouble shooting tech for someone who isn't confident with tech without other non-tech savvy people jumping in with what they've kinda heard or how they think is should work.
Did you try turning it off and turning it back on again? - Melly - #TeamMarina
I was reading the fricken manual to the person and another person chimed in telling me to do that part we did 4 minutes ago (never mind what she told me was wrong). I had to stop, explain why that person was wrong to the person I was helping and reassure them the manual I was looking at was legitimate - Johnny from iPhone
