Taco Bell Announces New Breakfast Menu Item -
Taco Bell Announces New Breakfast Menu Item
"Last year, Taco Bell starting serving breakfast, changing the AM forever. Today, the company’s announced a new breakfast item being added to the mix: the Biscuit Taco. Allow me to be the first to say get in my belly. I mean, in reference to the Biscuit Taco. It’s described as a warm, fluffy, buttery biscuit folded it in the shape of a taco and filled with classic breakfast flavors: sausage, egg and cheese; bacon, egg and cheese; crispy chicken with country gravy; crispy chicken with Taco Bell’s new signature Jalapeno Honey. I will have one of each. Jk jk, I will have ten of each. At least." - That's So CAJ! from Bookmarklet
Would you believe THIS is what may actually get me to try a Taco Bell breakfast? - That's So CAJ!
"Grab breakfast in the biscuits!" - me, just now - That's So CAJ!

Is it just me, or are some vendors really ramping up their pre-conference pitches? One particular one has called me every day this week, keeps emailing to ask for an appointment, and now left a voicemail saying every existing customer who brings a non-customer librarian to the booth gets an iPad. This is beyond.
wait, whut? really.? that's a bunch of iPads. - Christina Pikas
Yeah, it sounds crazy. Like, do they mean one iPad per customer institution, or individual? We're customers of this company and are sending 13 librarians to ACRL. Theoretically, that could be $6500 worth of iPads if they mean what they say. It was clearly not a drawing but "we will give you an iPad." - kaijsa
I am so annoyed that I don't want to even talk to them to find out, btw. - kaijsa
Now I know where all my subscription money is going.... - lris
This is an equipment vendor. - kaijsa
so. many. cold. calls. it is ridiculous. - Marie
i'm not registered for ACRL, but I've gotten about as many emails from vendors about that as I do for ALA (which I do attend) - ~Courtney F
I have not been hit up for ACRL. I am TOTALLY okay with that. The ALA onslaught is going to start shortly - Hedgehog
I got an email coupon from vendor in question with the line, "a non-customer institution cannot be used more than once with this gift program." So I guess the limit applies the other way. So weird. - kaijsa
I thought I would be really excited about going to Portland, OR tomorrow. But, I just feel a little meh about the trip. I have my reasons for the meh-ness.
When are you going, returning? Will I see you at all? - Marie
Anybody watching NdGT on 60 Minutes?
No, should I? - Meg VMeg
Good intro to the general population who he is. He's inspiring, as usual. - Marie
Nm, I appear not to have this channel somehow :( - Meg VMeg
Did you try changing the channel wearing these mitts? - Marie
no, but I'm going to his event Tuesday night, so that makes up for it, right? :) - ellbeecee
Neil deGrasse Tyson - ellbeecee
MY kid and I are sad that his Cosmos reboot is not coming back. :( - Gunneh-MoTo Calls me that
Thanks, ellbeecee - MoTO Boychick Devil from Android
ooh, LBC. #jealous - Marie
Favorite FriendFeed hashtag/meme. Go.
I always liked the #danceparty and #ffdanceparty ones. edit: Maybe that wasn't it? What was the hashtag for when we'd DJ through YouTube links? - chrisofspades
Inspired by the #askmeanything from last night. Also another fave. - chrisofspades
I'm pretty sure you're right. I think it was #ffdanceparty - AHnix (Anna Haro)
Thanks for confirming. I was beginning to wonder. - chrisofspades
My favorite was #obeselifestyle It wasn't a big meme, but it was funny. You could prolly find it in Monique's feed. - AHnix (Anna Haro)
It took me a while to understand #glenmode. - Joe
^Oh yeah! That was funny too. - AHnix (Anna Haro)
How many memes do we owe to the FFundercats? - chrisofspades
Hehe yup that was it, Anna. Crimplezzzz. - chrisofspades
^^^ oh, i forgot about that one. i want to change my answer because that one is the best. the best. - Marie
Oh yeah! #sadrodfathereyes was hilarious - AHnix (Anna Haro)
Oh I have to second #oohgirl and #rodfathersadeyes. - chrisofspades
#monfu almost took off. Almost. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
^ Haha. - Kristin
#joshhaleybomb was one of my favorite times here - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I tried to bump this thread: to add to the mix, but it won't bump to the top of the feed. - Kristin
Bumped it, Kristin. - LB needs a vacation from Android
There was one started by Rodfather (I think) where he stood looking to the side and pointing majestically. - felicious from FFHound!
#yodawg :) - BDE
25 Things About Me was another one of my favorites. - felicious from FFHound!
There are many epic FFtag memes, but my personal favorite will always be #teamffrank - Jim #teamFFrank

Anne and I recently encountered an online (comments thread) argument about the best girl scout cookie, in which someone said "Trefoils are a garbage cookie" and the rejoinder was "You're a garbage cookie." Now periodically one of us will tell the other apropos of nothing, "No, YOU'RE a garbage cookie."
In a similar fashion, we witnessed a little girl giving her grandparents fits at a restaurant one night. They had plied her with chicken fingers, ice cream, and all the gifts she could ever want. But when it came time to go home, she stood up in her chair and declared: "I DON'T GET TO DO NOTHIN'" over and over and over. It has become the battlecry of anyone around here trying to squeeze blood out of the proverbial turnip. - MoTO Boychick Devil

i read a story about a place in DC that has a chilito - a chili burrito - yesterday. now it's all i can think about.
you can also get the chili as frito pie. which i also want. - holly #ravingfangirl
BUT CHILITO. - holly #ravingfangirl
Frito pie > what-have-you - Marie
Urban Dictionary says something completely different. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
And I like Chicken Tikka Masala burritos. Nothing better. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
frito pie is pretty great, marie. - holly #ravingfangirl

I didn't put enough conditioner in my hair this morning and it's flying all up in my face and driving me crazy. I'm about to resort to binder clips.
Pics!! (I might need the inspiration some day...) - WebGoddess
I'm restraining myself from using the binder clips right now. If it gets worse I will post pics. - Marie
I have resorted to putting hand lotion on my frizzy hair in the past. It wasn't too bad, actually, and was a lot better than having my nose tickled. (I had to look up what binder clips are. They're called bulldog clips in England.) - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Bulldog clips in the U.S. are different from binder clips. Binder clip: Bulldog clip: - bentley
I used to use bulldog clips to secure my drawing paper to my easel in art school. What a nice memory! They would be much nicer to use in hair than binder clips. - Marie
P.S. I just totally did the hand lotion thing and it worked. My savior! - Marie
And seeing a bulldog clip from "a more exciting angle" certainly made my day... - walt crawford
bentley: Interesting that the binder clips weren't the ones I saw when I looked on google images. I've used the binder clips here in Canada but I didn't know they were called that, and I don't remember seeing them in England. Marie: I'm glad the hand lotion worked! - WoH: Professor MOTHRA

This is why I would like to live for another 3.75 billion years or more. After that, then I could die. - Joe

Cancelling databases is hard. Especially when they are in a bundled package.
We tried that once... and ended up billed a bit more withouut that "included with the bundle" database. It was pretty funny. - Aaron the Librarian
We are getting rid of the whole bundle. - Joe
Yep. Practically impossible. - lris
I'm working on a proposal to swap databases in a bundle; should be interesting, I'm surprised the vendor is even entertaining the notion. - Jen
A sales guy for a company that rhymes with SnowVest sold my business guy on a bundle that was more than what we were paying for a few core databases, but included some stuff that would let us cancel other databases. Then it turned out that stuff wasn't as comparable as business guy had been lead to believe, so we couldn't cancel. We also couldn't go back to the "grandfathered" pricing... more... - Holly's favorite Anna
In a conference preso I likened selecting a database to selecting the Pope. You can't cancel that shit! - Marie
Hah! - lris from Android
I <3 Marie. - Catherine Pellegrino

still irritated that advanced tweets broke for me so close to the end.
Oh, Marco Rossi (who made Advanced Tweets) emailed me this weekend in reply to my email. It's not fixed so far, but it's still nice that he replied. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
