That mentions this twitter feed: https://twitter.com/ass_deans I may have just laughed at some of them and grimaced at others. - ellbeecee

Old 97s - Marie
How old is too old to begin a PhD program?
never. as long as your brain still works fucking go for it! - Sir Shuping is just sir
Second Andy's comment. - Pete from FFHound(roid)!
When you are old enough to know better. - Steele Lawman
When you can no longer spell PhD. - Todd Hoff
When you are dead. - Shannon - GlassMistress
All of the above. - Catherine Pellegrino
Depends if it's fulltime? Like, for a fulltime PhD program, I'd consider how much salary/savings/interest I'd lose from living off a stipend that long, compared to whatever salary increase I'd get with a PhD (sorry if this was supposed to be a rhetorical question, I'm boring like that). - Meg VMeg
you people are way too supportive. :) - Marie
Put it this way...I'm working towards that (it's still a few years away) and I'm 49. - Spidra Webster
In my first attempt at grad school I lived down the hall from a woman who was in her mid-60's, who was working on a PhD in education after an entire career in computer programing. - Kirsten
When you're dead. I hope to have mine done before I'm 43. - Christina Pikas from iPhone
One of my favorite people is in England doing hers in her 60s. - Alix May
Did you see that Girl Scouts have a new cookie flavor: Rah Rah Raisins. You freaks should love them.
gross. - ellbeecee
Well, this freak still loves thin mints, and maybe those lemon ones. - Joe
Because of new town and new job, I have a new dealer, and my new dealer must be in a different district because her order form didn't include any lemon cookies at all. :-( - bentley
love the lemon ones - but your troop has to be in the Little Brownie Bakers part of the country/supply chain to get them. - ellbeecee
Wait. I'm looking at the website for cookies http://www.girlscouts.org/program... and the only lemon cookies they show are the Lemonades. Didn't they have lemon creme sandwiches or something like that? Or did I imagine them? - bentley
the lemon ones I was thinking of are the Savannah Smiles - the Lemonades aren't in my area, which is a LBB region. - ellbeecee
those were the Lemon Chalets, bentley. they were the best, but they don't make them anymore. - holly #ravingfangirl
It's weird that I'm in a different area, since my dealers are in the same state and only 40 miles apart. Holly: yes, Lemon Chalets. Those were wonderful. - bentley
Freak who still misses Sunshine Bakeries raisin cookies http://www.kingarthurflour.com/blog... and Mother's Iced Raisin Cookies ---> - Spidra Webster
Hemmed and ironed some curtains. Oiled the cutting boards. Unwrapped bobbins of thread I'll never use again.
Cleaned the coffee machine. - Marie
Made quinoa for tonight's dinner salad. - Marie
we have the same to-do list only you've actually done these things - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
t-ra, i was trying to distract myself from awful home repairs. maybe you need to trick yourself into doing the tasks by thinking of something worse than the tasks. - Marie
Distracting myself from the holes the plumbers are putting in the wall by doing small, good things around the house.
When you've just come from the gym and are trying to get a quick bite out you WILL run into someone you know.

Goodness, that was a horrible play. He's going to live with that one for the rest of his life.

Why do two centaurs want to ride in a Honda?
So that can rock like those rats in the Kia? - Joe

Just in case you were wondering, tickets to the French Open are expensive as all get out.
Open market prices? - bentley
Certainly not Masters expensive...? - Julian
Oui, open market. - Marie
I haven't ever priced the Masters. - Marie
Masters tickets are only $100 per round. (I assume you mean the golf tournament.) The waiting list for the Masters has been closed since 1987. By the way, if you are ever blessed to attend the Masters, a hotdog costs $1 and a soda is $0.50. They basically operate everything at cost. http://www.masters.com/en_US... - Glen Campbell
P.S. I will not be attending the French Open 2015.
Does anybody else need a small step stool to reach the inside bottom of their clothes washer? #shortie
It would help. I have to stand on my tiptoes. - Laurie Boots from Android
I have the opposite problem with he front-loading washer and dryer - I should have bought the pedestals to make them taller so I don't have to bend as much. - Jennifer Dittrich
I have a pair of giant grilling tongs to pull out the things in the bottom. Does that count? - Alix May
i know this. - holly #ravingfangirl
I hang over it at my waist and lean in. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
Alix is a genius. That never occurred to me. I just monkey bar it and try not to hit my head. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
I'm with m9m. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
I have a really long pair of tongs. *ponders Alix's idea* - Marie
We don't have room for a step stool. I just hang the tongs (these: http://www.amazon.com/gp...) from the doorknob to the entryway/laundry room, so they're always right there. It's great for socks, but works for big things, too. - Alix May

Two things: this was really good and would be great with meat bits, like chicken; two cloves of garlic is way too much for this sauce. - Marie
They sure have made improvements since we last bought a clothes washer. I think this load balanced itself?
I admit I'm kind of looking forward to the death of the washer that came with the Little House. - RepoRat

I've never had a proper roasting pan! First meal is chicken, with fresh sage and thyme. #nailedit http://t.co/KlYHq3hl6q
