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. - Rodfather
Another for Nintendo related - 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. - Rodfather from Android

I'm subbed to /r/short but that's kinda depressing. /r/bayarea can be interesting at times. - Rodfather from Android

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
"Ooh babe, that's SO GOOD! Hey, while you're down there... does that look infected to you?" #ThingsNOTtoDoOnYourHoneymoon <Ducks & runs> - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android

Our very first wedding anniversary gift, and it is beautiful! Thank you, Helen & Pete, for remembering! This is going in a place of honor (honour?) on our wall :)
All Helen's work :-) - Pete

Thursday night turned out even more fun than I expected. Worked the door for my friends' nonfiction reading series event, read a brand new essay during open mic (and didn't choke, and people laughed at the right parts), met some cool new people, went to the "afterparty" & drank delicious wine.
It's nights like this that make me glad to live in Sacramento. For all the times its small-town vibe makes me nuts, there's some true intimacy here, and I sometimes forget how much I need that. - Corinne L

I'm starting to believe that she is an evil genius. - Mary Carmen
I remember trying to get mine to crawl. I arranged a circle of toys around her thinking she would have to crawl to get to them...but no, she just rolled over & over till she got to what she wanted. - April Russo

Winner of the 2012 Glass Key Award given by the members of the Crime Writers of Scandinavia All the best homes are by the water, or so the matron of Kongslund Orphanage tells her small charges. But at this particular house by the sea, not all is as it appears. On September 11, 2001, on a desolate beach on the outskirts of Copenhagen, police begin investigating the strange death of an unidentified woman. Surrounding the body are what appear to be offerings to the deceased: a book, a small noose, a dead golden canary, a linden tree branch, and a photo of the Kongslund Orphanage. As the police puzzle over their bizarre findings, the Twin Towers fall in walls of flame and the case is quickly overshadowed by the terror half a world away. Years later, as the sixtieth anniversary of the matron’s reign at Kongslund approaches, identical anonymous letters are sent to six of the home’s former residents, hinting at a cover-up that has allowed Denmark’s most influential to hide away their dirty... more... - Lnorigb

Description: "The Misremembered Man is a beautifully rendered portrait of life in rural Ireland which charms and delights with its authentic characters and gentle humor.

April 2014 nomination: "Sleep Tight" by Rachel Abbott #apr2014kindler
Description: From the author of the bestselling novels Only the Innocent and The Back Road How far would you go to hold on to the people you love? When Olivia Brookes calls the police to report that her husband and children are missing, she believes she will never see them again. She has reason to fear the worst; this isn’t the first tragedy that Olivia has experienced. Now, two years later, Detective Chief Inspector Tom Douglas is called in to investigate this family again, but this time it’s Olivia who has disappeared. All the evidence suggests that she was here, in the family home, that morning. But her car is in the garage, and her purse is in her handbag – on the kitchen table. The police want to issue an appeal, but for some reason every single picture of this family has been removed from albums, from phones, from computers. And then they find the blood… Has the past caught up with Olivia? Sleep Tight – if you can. You never know who’s watching. Praise for Rachel Abbott: "Rachel... more... - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet

Acted like an adult today. Stopped watching Netflix to make a phone call (to insurance!), go for a walk, and in 5 minutes take a shower. All on way too little sleep!
3 days in a row of accomplishing something. Yesterday was the walk and candy making attempt. Today was a doctors appointment. And tomorrow I have a training at the volunteer place. I'm either on a great roll or on Sunday I'm going to be a quivering pile of mope. - Heather, 30k Camper
So just 3 days. I didn't make it until tomorrow to crash. I couldn't get out of bed on time today and once I finally did, I had too much of a headache to even fathom getting to the volunteer training. - Heather, 30k Camper
Back on the horse! Went for a walk and returned a neighbors wallet (or at least part of it, there were just some cards in it). - Heather, 30k Camper

Of course the password didn't work, YOU DIDN'T READ YOUR FUCKING EMAIL TELLING YOU HOW TO LOG IN TO THE NEW SYSTEM AND INSTEAD BANGED YOUR STUPID APE HANDS ON THE KEYS WHICH ONLY MANAGED TO LOCK YOU OUT. Guess you're not going to get paid, moron. I shouldn't have to hold your hand on this simple task. So. Angry. At. Stupidity.
Just gotta breathe, my man. But, I understand totally where you are coming from. Some days I just wanted to scream at people. - Yolanda
Sigh, if it were only this one thing for this one person. Alas, it is not. I have recovered, btw. :) - (Curtis/Alan) Jackson
This was me when we transitioned to new software. Forgive me :( - Janet
*waves hands generically in air* You are forgiven. Go forth and ignore emails/instructions no more. :) - (Curtis/Alan) Jackson
A bitch. Why does IT make my log in name all caps and then require my new password to be mixed case? Just saying the old log in for the past 15 years worked a-ok. I dare you to move the key port on your vehicle and see how many times you mess up ;) - Janet from FFHound!

Maybe we shouldn't send soldiers to endless imperial wars then not adequately take care of them when they come home.
Oh I don't know if it's a matter of care. - MoTO Moca Blend
But sending people to war will always have consequences. - MoTO Moca Blend from Android
Sure, war will always have consequences, but there also seems to be a lot of evidence to suggest that the American people haven't done much to ensure that those who served actually get the care they need. - Victor Ganata
That war will always have consequences also suggests we should probably be a lot more careful about starting them, and that we probably shouldn't be fabricating evidence and lying to the world in order to do so. - Victor Ganata
