Original Brave Director Brenda Chapman Chimes In On Merida’s Redesign. Spoiler: She Hates It | The Mary Sue -
Original Brave Director Brenda Chapman Chimes In On Merida’s Redesign. Spoiler: She Hates It | The Mary Sue
"“I think it is atrocious!!!… Since I am no longer with the company, I’m sure they could care less what I think on the matter. But they have betrayed the essence of what we were trying to do with Merida—give young girls and women a better stronger role model. She’s strong inside and out—she’s not just a simpering pretty face waiting around for romance! She was created to turn that whole ideal on it’s [sic] head! Oh yeah… that’s why I created her… they’re just in it for the money… not the integrity. They don’t care what message they send about women, as long as it makes them a buck.” — Brenda Chapman on Disney’s Merida redesign." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
Yeah, I read about that this morning. At least she looked normal (larger than all the other princesses) at the crowning. It will be interesting to see if there is a backlash now. - Anne Bouey
Yeah I liked that too, that she looked heavier and more natural during the coronation. I couldn't tell if it was just the way the costume looked or if they actually hired a heavier actress, but either way (knowing Disney) it must have been intentional. - Jessie
I don't like the new one. They made her too grownup. Cinched in her waist, made her eyes more alluring and plumped out her lips. There are other changes, but those are the ones that stand out at me. I don't mind the dress, but I would keep her not quite so curvy and less makeup and botox thank you. :) - Rachel Lea Fox
The actress playing her also walked in a more tomboyish way up to the stage, I noticed. - Spidra Webster
The one we saw at Disneyland last year was awesome. She passed by us at one point, and she had the swagger down perfectly. - Jessie

Tiny bit of formula promotes breast-feeding - SFGate -
Tiny bit of formula promotes breast-feeding - SFGate
"Giving a little bit of formula - the equivalent of a single bottle over several days - to a newborn who's losing too much weight after birth might actually increase the likelihood that the baby will be breast-feeding three months later, according to a small Bay Area study. In a climate of aggressive public health policy trying to cut down on formula use and encourage new moms to give infants only breast milk, the study results are likely to be controversial, and they may seem counterintuitive, the authors said. But for a select group of new mothers who are eager to breast-feed, small doses of formula, given for a short and carefully monitored time, may alleviate some of the stress associated with breast-feeding and, in turn, give them confidence to stick with it, said Dr. Valerie Flaherman, lead author of the study, published Monday in the journal Pediatrics. "This study does not mean that all babies should get formula or that formula is better than breast-feeding. It's my strong... more... - Anne Bouey from Bookmarklet
"But in the United States, while roughly three-quarters of mothers attempt to breast-feed, only 30 percent of them are breast-feeding exclusively at three months, and less than a quarter are breast-feeding at all by the time the baby is a year old. The reasons women stop breast-feeding are varied and complicated and not always well understood. One possibility that the study authors... more... - Anne Bouey
"The study authors agreed that their results may not apply across the country, and they noted that Bay Area women in general are much more eager to breast-feed than women in other parts of the country. At UCSF, 98 percent of women who give birth there leave the hospital at least having started to breast-feed. Suggesting any amount of formula supplementation, if only a couple of... more... - Anne Bouey
One of my friends did something like this, and it helped a lot (she was having production issues, so there literally wasn't enough to feed her son by itself for the first month.) - Jennifer Dittrich
Breast feeding can be such a minefield. It was so hard with our first kid, and got easier with the others. But still, it can be really hard and all of them had some formula here and there. Trying to relax enough to realise that it's not the end of the world can be so difficult. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
It's really tricky, because the way to increase milk production is to continue feeding: the tactile stimulus from feeding is what stimulates prolactin and oxytocin production which leads to more milk. But I think the key is that mothers shouldn't be stigmatized due to their feeding choices, which I think a lot of breastfeeding advocates aren't partcularly sensitive of. Sure, there are a lot of benefits to breastfeeding, but a lot of those benefits can be realized with a limited course of breastfeeding. - Victor Ganata
(My comments on breastfeeding advocates are, admittedly, limited to my experiences rounding in newborn nurseries during residency and my mom's anecdotes from working as a nurse on a mother-baby unit—she's not a big fan of the drive towards exclusive breastfeeding and she'd frequently tell me about all the mothers who were reduced to tears because they had problems with feeding their baby.) - Victor Ganata
The more the baby suckles, the more milk is produced. That's the general rule. But if you have sore, cracked and bleeding nipples, are ill, or in the throes of painful mastitis then knowing you can have a break can mean the difference between carrying on and giving up all together. It's really hard to be kind to yourself when you feel like giving a bottle is failure, so I'm all for pragmatism and understanding. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
I agree with you Victor. Lots of my friends have had children here in the Bay Area and lost of them have had huge amount of pressure put on them to breastfeed only. Some pushed themselves too hard when signs of problems (cracking, mastitis, etc) showed and tried to power through, only making the problems worse. If they had done a little of both they may have been able to treat the... more... - Rachel Lea Fox

Show all
" matter where I looked 95% of the “ideas” were the “How to’s” of how to dress your little girl like a Disney Princess. Now don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Disney Princesses, from their beautiful dresses, perfect hair, gorgeous voices and most with ideal love stories in the mix you can’t help but become entranced with the characters. But it got me thinking, they’re just characters, a writers tale of a princess (most before 1998)…an unrealistic fantasy for most girls (Yay Kate Middleton!). It started me thinking about all the REAL women for my daughter to know about and look up too, REAL women who without ever meeting Emma have changed her life for the better. My daughter wasn’t born into royalty, but she was born into a country where she can now vote, become a doctor, a pilot, an astronaut, or even President if she wants and that’s what REALLY matters. I wanted her to know the value of these amazing women who had gone against everything so she can now have everything. We chose 5 women... more... - Rachel Lea Fox from Bookmarklet
Very cool and cute, bur are annual portraits a "thing" now? - Soup in a TARDIS
My mother got annual portraits when she was a kid in the 40's. The photographer did a full page ad of her through the years, beginning from when she was a toddler. - bentley
I had annual portraits from when I was a kid. I know lots of people who do and I know people who don't. In this case the photographer is the kids mother, so she gets more than annual photographs. - Rachel Lea Fox

An extremely rare white rhino, of which there are only four left in the entire world, in the Kenyan Ol Pejeta reservation, roams about the plains flanked by armed bodyguards - Imgur
John's post made me look up some figures about how many are actually left in the world and found this which makes me both sad and happy, but mainly sad that the human race is still so ignorant, i don't mean that in a rude way, but seriously, we are failing to educate people, i know ancient traditions are hard to deal with, but it's 2013 for goodness sakes :'( - Halil from Bookmarklet
Also so strange that the Northern White Rhino and the Sourthern White Rhino are not sub-categories of the White Rhino species but that the Northern White Rhino is a species of it's own separated genetically for over a million years. I have had the privilege of being up close and personal with the less at risk Southern White Rhino and they are just amazing and wonderful creatures. It makes me so sad whenever I hear about any poaching of any type of these creatures. :( - Rachel Lea Fox
Reading the comments on the article/image is awesome. "I would pet the shit out of that beautiful rhino." "He looks so epic and full of wisdom." "fuck humans, that he NEEDS to be guarded." - Hookuh Tinypants

Wow, I thought Kevin & Rachel had done an app:
LOL! I saw that too, and I was thinking they named it after us! ;) - Rachel Lea Fox
That looks fun. - Stephen Mack
The only problem is that the base came is free but the prices on buying things in app are pretty high. - Rachel Lea Fox
Do you need those things? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Pretty much. You start with one set of monsters and to be able to play with any other set of monsters you have to pay. The one set of monsters is fine, but even the computer plays with the other monster sets, and only being able to use the one set gets boring after a while. Also new maps cost. I don't mind paying in app, but their fee system is way high. Even buying the bundle that has everything in it is $8 which for an iphone game is too much in my opinion. - Rachel Lea Fox
Yeah, $8 is pretty high compared to most apps of that type. - Stephen Mack
At least it's not Super Monster Bros. Knock off of Mario and Pokemon IP + in app fees for a lot of things of $20-100. - NOT THE CRICKET
Jimminy, gak that is horrible! I just know that in a game I would want to play through game center with other friends, I wouldn't want all of us dependent on paying that much money. The $8 is for the pack with all the current items, they call it Season 1, so they intend to have more seasons which I assume will cost similar. Can't do it. - Rachel Lea Fox

Mom back in hospital apparently pneumonia. But we've gotten better at the sibling rotation plan down there so we already have next 24hours set for attendants. I had to give up my Killers tickets for tonight but I have seen them before and my friends haven't so it's okay.
Ugh. Pneumonia is just awful. I hope she recovers quickly. - Anika
Doctors sounds optimistic, she was fine on Sunday the last day I was with her so I think they caught it early. What will be will be. - Steve C Team Marina
My thoughts are with you, your mom and your family, Steve. <3 - Monique the crochet freak
Thoughts and prayers for all of you Steve! xo - LoisMarketing
I hope she gets better soon! *hugs* - Rachel Lea Fox
Sorry to hear this, Steve. Hope it's a short stay. - Anne Bouey from iPhone
My best wishes for a full and speedy recovery :-( - mina_sydney
Glad things are better on the rotation side, and hope she is soon feeling better. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
My strength to you and your mom & siblings. *hugs* - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Sorry to hear it. I hope your mom recovers fully and soon! - Spidra Webster
You are a great son. - Janet
Doing well she thinks she's on a train, which i think is a much better thought than being in a hospital. - Steve C Team Marina
Thinking of you and your family. Sending your mom positive thoughts and hoping she gets well soon. - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Ohhhh NCIS is on , the first one of the first season. Score, mom's favorite show. Agent Todd isn't an agent yet. - Steve C Team Marina
I hope she makes a speedy recovery, Steve. - Jenny H.
speedy recovery to your moms! - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
Steve, how's your mom now? - Tamara J. B.
Oh thanks for asking. She is home now which makes her happy and everyone else gets a little more sleep. Family rotation in hospital worked perfectly. Thanks all! - Steve C Team Marina

The kittens got vaccinations today so I don't know how long they will be playing, but for now there might be some playing. #foxfosterkittens
or maybe they will just sleep in a pile. ;) - Rachel Lea Fox
Oh my sweet baby kitten. Rachel, you capture the essence of all your fosters with your photography skills. I would love for you to make a foster calendar because 2014 needs one and so do I! - Janet
LOL Janet. I will think about it. Most of these are just iPhone photos, I don't know if they get big enough for printing. I need to get good photos for these guys. I've been working so hard keeping this little guy healthy, the extra photography hasn't been a top priority. This photo is so Slater though. - Rachel Lea Fox
Also, if you feel like you are missing photos of the kittens, check in at their facebook page, I've been posting most things there. - Rachel Lea Fox
You could do multiple shots per page if the resolution isn't high enough to enlarge properly. >.> - Heather
Slater has totally weaponized his cute. - RepoRat

For a year or more I have been planning to submit some of my photography to Getty Images Stock Photography (through Flickr) to see if I could sell some images. I get approached semi-regularly for rights to images, but I usually turn people down because I don't really know how to set it all up. I have friends who have been working with Getty for...
Show all
...years ans loving it, but as life goes I kept putting off the submission, and putting it off more, due to life just being busy. Well I guess procrastination works for you sometimes. Today I got a letter inviting me to join Getty Images. Yeah for awesome things falling into your lap!! - Rachel Lea Fox
Good luck! - Juan Pablo González
Woot! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Yay! Congrats, Rachel. Your photos are wonderful. - Anika

Kittens are playing with the ball in the track right now:
dang, I gotta get me one of those things. - RepoRat
That reminds me that I need to order a new glow ball for Plum and Sophie's track set. Not that they don't play with it anyway, but it was cool. - Katy S
That's Calvin's favorite toy. - Anne Graham
Every set of kittens love the track and ball. And I love the versatility of this one! Also it's play time again: - Rachel Lea Fox

12.23 (844 / 69 ) I guess I take my likes seriously ;) - Chris Myles
Wow I didn't realize I was so out of whack!! 12.23 that's got to be a record (and I don't even import my feeds with the summary as a comment)!! - Chris Myles
Thanks JA, Chris (wow, 12+ is unusual :), Serkan and Nine! - Micah
Micah.. I told you I take my likes seriously; ). You *might* want to ask (in a separate post) what percentage of likes were used to "bookmark" a post or save it for later VS actually "liking it". I NEVER used like for that.. but I did use a private group that if filled with my own topics (and comments).. - Chris Myles
1.78 (8529/4782) - Micah
Likes are down relative to comments, which matches my much lower frequency of liking. I'm a more selective liker than ever. - Micah
I don't think I could argue that any particular kind of ratio is "best", because if Lurkers like to Lurk and cultivate (via Likes) and the Chatty-ites love to chat, to pump out much many more comments than Likes, each can be happy and make for a great social experience. - Micah
383/372 - Ashish
'Just clicking "Like" seems too easy' — Jason, that's because you're from the Chatty-ite tribe :) - Micah
Thanks, ashish. - Micah
wow, what a difference time makes, when i 1st posted on this thread, 6.43%, now = 1.25%, for a 5.18% difference, :o (and this is the earliest post to date i've recovered of my activity on ff) - chaz2b
chaz, I think there's been a big fluctuation for most people (maybe not that much). This is the oldest post on which you commented that you've recovered? - Micah

Thanks, Bren. - Micah
Thank you, Alex :) - Micah
that was my third post... It's interesting to see how the number has changed. of course, I manipulated the number to a degree, because I stopped "liking" things for a while... - Cult Hero
Bren, the other thing that can seriously throw off someone's stats is a feed that upon each item it imports adds a comment automatically. - Micah
true. that can seriously inflate comment stats, of course. Then you have someone like RAPatton, who posts a gazillion comments, in part because of his playlist posts where he will list each song in a separate comment. I found, after this post in fact, that I tended to "like" things much more frequently than comment on them, that I was lurking instead of participating. I have changed the way I use ff rather considerably, and I think for the better. - Cult Hero
Thanks, Sarah, Tutivillus. - Micah

Would you be okay with this as neighbors front yard? I could actually do this with our front yard project we have about the same wasted space. - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
Slightly afraid the fence is too prisony/ isolating from neighbors - Steve C Team Marina
That first picture is what we had planned in our first house, before we realized the garage was crumbling apart. - Anika
SteVe, as someone who was initially skeptical that i could live in a house with a 8 foot stucco wall around, I have to say it is actually incredibly liberating. I like the idea of the windows in this fence, it could work for or against you though. But in my yard I suddenly have immense privacy and freedom that you don't always have with low fences or no fence. We don't have curtains or... more... - Rachel Lea Fox
Thanks Rachel that's what I was hoping as a best case outcome. Since 25% of our property is currently the lawn on front yard I am leaning towards enclosing it in some way to add essentially another outdoor room especially being in So Cal. The debate has come down to the type of fencing, open, short, tall, complete. So when I saw this idea yesterday it was a new direction to think of. - Steve C Team Marina
If I didn't live remote and without neighbors I would want this as my back yard privacy oasis. Block parties are to mingle with your neighbors, not when you want to hang out in your yard. - Janet
Love this look/concept. Can't WAIT to see how you execute. - SAM
SteVe, if you are up there visiting Anne or anyone and you want to see what we have I'm happy to show you. This design for a wall would be prettier than my wall, but the wood would take more maintenance. I think it would be worth it though! - Rachel Lea Fox
SAM or others, any ideas on the type of wood? Oh yes Rachel I would love that if we don't get up there I'll send my spy Anne. :) Rachel subscribe to me so I can DM you and because I am fricking riveting. - Steve C Team Marina
Okay, that is the weirdest thing. You are the second person in the last few months who i know was subscribed too and now I'm not. :( Fixed. - Rachel Lea Fox
And also Anne has been here before, so she might already have feedback, but is always welcome here. She can come visit the kittens too, with or without you. :) - Rachel Lea Fox
High end: Teak or Iroko (wouldn't that be fun). Lower-end: Cedar or anything you can get better boards in quantity. - SAM from iPhone
This looks like a great idea for your front yard, Steve. Would it meet city codes? Rachel and Kevin's walled yard is a very special secluded area; it really feels like their own private space for relaxing, entertaining, and Halloween decorating!! Perhaps Rachel can give you a link to their Halloween photos which may give you a glimpse of their wall. - Anne Bouey
Yeah Anne that's the hard part of front yard work dealing with city. I think my argument if they give any gruff is "look my house is purple don't you think covering some of it with a pretty wood is an improvement in your narrow minded eyes?" Actually a few peeps have block walls out front so I think we'll be okay but I will have to do the whole annoying permit thing. Annoying only in that I build stronger than code anyway so you ain't doing me any favors other than slowing me down. - Steve C Team Marina

Warner Brothers brought the Nolan Batmobile and the Mystery Machine to the LA Festival of Books.
What does Warner Brothers have to do with books? - Spidra Webster
The FOB has a large comic book section. Things like these cars are always in Comic Book Alley. - Anika
The Mystery Machine is always parked in the Fry's parking lot in Palo Alto. Or at least it used to be, I haven't been there in a few years. And it wasn't as shiny as this one. :) - Rachel Lea Fox

My very good friend is in the middle of the lockdown in Watertown with her husband and 2yo. Last I heard the helicopters seemed to have zeroed in about a half mile from her house. I have knots in my stomach. :(
Sending positive thoughts to your friends. - Georgia
Oof, sorry to hear, Rachel. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Watching live TV from Boston. So scary... - Bash
Yay! Captured alive! - Bash
Yeah, I was getting lots of updates on Facebook about it. Apparently they lifted the "stay inside" and 15 minutes later caught him. Very scary. My friends were .3 miles from where they took him, they heard the gun fire. But they are safe and very relieved it is over. - Rachel Lea Fox

"WE FUCKING SUCK SO FAR": A Sorority Girl Lashes Out At Her Sisters -
"WE FUCKING SUCK SO FAR": A Sorority Girl Lashes Out At Her Sisters
"For those of you that have your heads stuck under rocks, which apparently is the majority of this chapter, we have been FUCKING UP in terms of night time events and general social interactions with Sigma Nu. I've been getting texts on texts about people LITERALLY being so fucking AWKWARD and so fucking BORING. If you're reading this right now and saying to yourself "But oh em gee [first name redacted], I've been having so much fun with my sisters this week!", then punch yourself in the face right now so that I don't have to fucking find you on campus to do it myself. I do not give a flying fuck, and Sigma Nu does not give a flying fuck, about how much you fucking love to talk to your sisters. You have 361 days out of the fucking year to talk to sisters, and this week is NOT, I fucking repeat NOT ONE OF THEM. This week is about fostering relationships in the Greek community, and that's not fucking possible if you're going to stand around and talk to each other and not our matchup.... more... - Eric - ill subliminal from Bookmarklet
omg, "cunt punt" is my new favorite. - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤
Well, that certainly backed up the impressions I already had of the "Greek system". - Spidra Webster
(I was greek. it was fun, but I also didn't take it sooper seriusly like apparently many folks at other places do?) - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤
I've definitely heard of (and from) folks who were in fraternities and sororities who loved it, who had great experiences, etc. It probably wouldn't be the right place for me and that letter reinforced that for me. (However, while reading it I thought that it might single-handedly reboot the National Lampoon's Animal House franchise.) - Spidra Webster
Spidra, We had a professional music Sorority and Fraternity at my school. They were awesome. They had houses and parties, but overall they were about music. Knowing a lot of the people who were in those groups, you would have fit right in. This girl would not have. I was in the Honorary Theatre Fraternity (co-ed) We didn't have a house, but we were still awesome! - Rachel Lea Fox

I'm getting ready to feed the kittens in a few minutes. The new video isn't there yet, but check in on their page! #foxfosterkittens
Hooray! I was just going to check to see if there is anything happening. - Katy S
Nope....not looking! - Shannon - GlassMistress
Shannon, resistance if futile! :) - Rachel Lea Fox
I watched the feed tonight and the weigh-in. So damn cute. I may have to drive out there this weekend and get some cuddle time with this crew. - Corinne L
Once again and in all seriousness. What you do humbles me. - Janet
Sorry I haven't been responding lately. Lots of things besides kittens have been happening here this week and it's been all I can do to keep up, so any responses have slacked off. Corinne, I'd love to have you out sometime, this weekend won't work though, too much craziness! Janet, thanks. It's something, I love so it doesn't seem all that hard to me. Though this week has tested that theory. Not because of the kittens, just too much on one plate. :) - Rachel Lea Fox
OMG *dead* - Melly
Just saw your message. It's all good, I was exaggerating a little bit - that's what cute kitties do to me. :-) I wouldn't be able to come visit until after May 2. - Corinne L

For those of you who can't get enough Fox Foster Kittens, I set up a live stream. You can find the most recent ustream link on the kitties new facebook page:

I saw you hanging out last night. Joining seemed silly but I waved. - Louis Gray
I was trying to figure out if I could do with this google +, but I couldn't figure it out. Luckily Ustream has an app that goes to a Facebook page. I was only on there for a minute at a time. But now I'll wave back to you! - Rachel Lea Fox
I'm getting a page not found message. :( - Katy S
I did at first Katy. I just searched her via FB and liked the page. Will you have a 'follow' option? - Janet from FFHound!
Sorry, I guess it needs the numbers at the end of the link: Apparently I can't have a regular URL till I have 25 followers. So far I have 14. - Rachel Lea Fox
I'm going to wash the kittens now. I'm not videoing the washing, but the damp kittens will be on video post wash. :) - Rachel Lea Fox
I will be feeding the kittens in a couple minutes. A new video will be available on the page in a minute. :) - Rachel Lea Fox
I will be feeding the kittens at about 4pm today if anyone is interested. And again at about 9:30pm - Rachel Lea Fox
I just watched the sleeping kittens. How I want little furballs in my home. - Janet
The kittens are cuddling up now but are still a bit awake. They are having more and more awake time. Next feeding is about 3am and after that it's 8:30am-ish PST!! - Rachel Lea Fox

Thursday night urgent care adventure time! He dropped a shelf on his toe. Doesn't look broken per the x-ray, luckily. We were in and out in under 2 hours. Poor kid.
Glad he is okay and you got in and out pretty easily! - Rachel Lea Fox
Thanks, Rachel! His toe is all purple. They wanted to drain it but he wouldn't have it, so he'll have to be off his foot for a few days. But it could be far far worse. - Stephen Mack
Poor little buddy. - Marie
Ouch. We just did the urgent care thing yesterday. - Eric - ill subliminal
Oh no! Will he be ok by Sunday? - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
Poor kid. Hope the night goes ok for both of you. - Anne Bouey
Yikes. I hope his foot gets better soon. Reminds me of my childhood. Our local emergency room knew our family by name... - Spidra Webster
Ouch! Hope it will heal soon. - Stephan
get well soon...... - petralife
Yvonne, not sure -- doctor says for him to stay off it a couple of days. - Stephen Mack
oof! here's to a speedy recovery! - Pete
Rest up, Sammy!!!!! - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
Poor lil one! Mine sending get well soon, and tumb ups for the same pj! - Xabaras (G.O.)
Ouch! - Kevin Johnson
Poor Sammy. I hope it feels better soon and he's not in too much pain. - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Hoping for a quick recovery! - CarlC from Android

Thanks all! I'm home with him this morning. He had a rough night but seems to be in much less pain this morning. - Stephen Mack from iPhone

Oooh, poor boy and oooof on the toe. - Janet
Whoa, I'm glad it wasn't more serious! Hope he's feeling better soon. - vicster
Thanks all! So far the toenail seems to be sticking around (it's all purple and black, but I no longer think it's going to fall off). He was feeling better enough for him to have a play date today (here at my place). Still limping and hopping around but doing much better. - Stephen Mack

Janet, I don't know that it will actually be his name. I just thought of the quote when I saw his squished up little face and had to post it. And yeah Shannon, I heard there is going to be a second movie called "Finding Dory". My niece Lorelei will be thrilled when it comes out! Nemo is her favorite! - Rachel Lea Fox

I love hard-boiled eggs. I eat them a few times a week, like this morning for breakfast, or sliced on a sandwich. - John (bird whisperer)
Akiva, that would put you on the fast track to the top of The List. - holly #ravingfangirl
this is one of the few foods that i hate in every way - taste, smell, texture. the whole package. - holly #ravingfangirl
I almost always have hard boiled eggs in the fridge for sudden onset snackage. Bit of Baconsalt, bit of grains of paradise? Flawless victory. - Akiva
I love the yolks. The texture of the whites can be a little rubbery, but I push through it. I prefer a good egg salad, really. - Laura Norvig from iPod
I think I like it best when diced up and turned into an egg sandwich - Rodfather
ew ew ew ew - holly #ravingfangirl
I can eat them every single day. - AJ Batac

I just bought a dozen eggs. Three wil go into making matzoh brie. The rest will make Holly very very sad - RudĩϐЯaЯïan

Free range please. - Nick B.
Yet another reason to love Holly. Boiled eggs are super nasty. #worstfoodever - A Gunny named Slickback
Yeah, soft boiled eggs or sunny side up are way better than hard boiled. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Oh, I like them okay. I don't hate them, but I don't crave them either. I love how vocal everyone is. :) - Derrick
I was just using this thread as an excuse to love on Holly, hating on eggs at the same time is a bonus. - A Gunny named Slickback

I'm making them even though I hate them. - Katy S
I have those - with a little salt and pepper - for breakfast at least one or two days a week. High-impact protein without mess, what can be better? - WebGoddess
I'm ok with being #judged. Especially if it means I get more yummy eggs. - WebGoddess
I'd eat that. - SAM
Annnnnd, I just made a couple for breakfast. With toast. - Derrick
NTS: Holly doesn't like them hard. - DJF
LOL. also, i have no idea how me judging you gets you more, but... go on with your bad self. - holly #ravingfangirl
If you are judging me, you aren't eating them yourself, are you? No, of course not! This means that there are more yummy eggs for me to boil until they are nice and hard and then eat. That's how you judging me gets me more eggs. It's not really about the judging. It's about you being too icked out to eat my share. Or your share. Which I presume I could have? - WebGoddess
Writer's Call to Kill Feral Cats Sparks Outcry -
Writer's Call to Kill Feral Cats Sparks Outcry
"In a March 14 opinion piece in the Orlando Sentinel, Ted Williams, then editor-at-large for Audubon Magazine, advocated for trapping and euthanizing feral cats due to their rampant hunting of birds and their reputation for carrying diseases like toxoplasmosis." - Shevonne from Bookmarklet
quanti sonoooo - Katiastreghetta
He actually tells people to use Tylenol to poison ferral cats. He is telling people not just to euthanize but to kill the cats yourself and to do it in a way that could be torturous to the cats. I know he is a bird lover, but come on guy, try being human! - Rachel Lea Fox
Wow, that's.... ugh. Beyond shocking. I mean on islands where the wild cat population is known, decimating, and able to be eliminated, I can understand the call to destroy the population. But pretty much anywhere else removing the cats (by killing them or just moving them) the population will only drop temporarily. And the idea of someone advocating poisoning is utterly disturbing. Poisoning is the worst population control method, and that's when professionals do it. - Heather
sure thing! we also have to kill all birds - they spread diseases too, cows, pigs, sheep - the spread diseases too, moreover - almost all known infectious human diseases came from them!! Oh, and we have to kill all the rats - because they spread not the laughable toxoplasmosis, but plague. There will be no feral cats to do the latter for us. - Agent of Evil, Джомсом

Sparky, I would not suggest climbing on those. Most are in really well, but a couple were hindered by the vent behind that corner and shouldn't really bare more weight than a hat. - Rachel Lea Fox
