The cats had a busy night: eight dead mice on the doormat this morning.
Wow! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
They've been bringing them to the door daily since a week, but this is a record. I have seen them late at night teaming up once they know our dog is inside. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
I think I need to borrow a couple of them. I saw some tell tale signs of mice in my garage when it was really cold outside. Put out some Just One Bite baits and haven't seen any more signs of them. But I always wonder. Since I've been storing my neighbor's stuff, and will be for another week or so, I'd hate for them to have any critter damage. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Do they eat em? - Amir
Usually they don't. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
They are useful here, Mark. With the ground water so high the gophers are moving towards the house so the cats will be busy. - Stephan Planken from iPhone

That moment when you realize your impossible-to-shorten-any-more paper isn't actually too long, it just has a bunch of leftover notes and bits you weren't sure if you would need stuck in at the end of it. And you delete them. And it is all ok.
(Said paper still needs about 3 hours of revision work before it becomes presentable. But at least it EXISTS now. This one, one more big ole (much more chunkable) assignment to do once this is over, and then I will be done. *nods firmly, gets back to revising*) - Marianne
IT HAS BEEN SUBMITTED. ONE ASSIGNMENT LEFT. - Marianne
Go Marianne Go! - Heleninstitches

Currently watching my daughter scream at my husband because he won't give her pizza.

INORITE! - Mary Carmen
we should form a committee - MoTO ChilliSauce
He gave her the paper plate. She looked at it for 5 minutes and then burst into tears. She is screaming at him right now. He is consoling her because she can't have pizza. Wow, is this my kid. - Mary Carmen
Not even a chunk of crust, Dad?? it'll fit perfectly in my fist. - Lnorigb

Looking forward to today. Colleen and I are going to start a gym routine. She's starting to feel better, which makes me so happy. I'm going to get some schoolwork and writing for work knocked out today, along with a few applications for more work. We're picking up the bassets from being boarded. The weather is beautiful.
We're going to kick Chattanooga's ass (in a good way) these last couple months we call it home. Suit up! - Jed

The best thing about eating mostly #paleo? A bowl of bacon, tomatoes, and guacamole is a meal!
When isn't that a meal? Think I might have that for lunch tomorrow. - Jim is digging out. from iPhone

Should have taken pictures of the kids with their Easter haul. But it was early, dark and we were in a tent.

#SaturdayFF In elementary I used to go to my friend Joanne's house to walk to school together in the morning. They were Chinese & ate ramen noodles for breakfast. Her mama always asked me did I eat yet, I would lie & say no because those noodles were hella good!
Back then you could only get ramen at Asian grocery stores, the packages didn't even have English words on them. Mrs Lam must've thought my mama never fed me :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

"It doesn’t take Sherlock Holmes to deduce who’s popular at the moment… One Benedict Cumberbatch, epicly named English actor, is the man of the moment. The slow trickle of long-awaited Sherlock series (three episodes at a time is just inhumane!) keep anticipation high for his most notable TV show, but he’s been everything from nerds to dragons, period drama to futuristic Sci-Fi baddies on the big screen in recent years. Everyone and their mum loves him! This colouring in activity book celebrates Mr Cumberbatch with a series of black and white drawings for you to colour in. All you need is some colour pencils, felt tip pens, good old crayons… or would watercolours suit this posh poster boy better? The colouring book contains 16 black line drawings by Mel Elliott for you to colour in. It's printed on 150g Ecoplex paper, which is made from recycled paper so absolutely no trees were harmed during the making of this book. This colouring book is an unofficial, unauthorised and independent... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet

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

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

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

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
