Uh, so for the record, if anyone asks, yes I realize this dress is too short to ride in. I mean, I didn't know that earlier obviously, but now yes, I realize, thanks, sorry, ok.
I got a feeling this night is gonna be a series of similarly ill conceived decisions. Sigh. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android

The looks of the comic book character were originally based on Sting. - bentley
In that cover, he does. But when he started out, in Swamp Thing, he was meant to look like Sting. It was an in-joke. http://police-daily.livejournal.com/20089... and http://thegreatcomicbookheroes... - bentley

My impressions of Ello so far
ello-ss.png
Show all
1. It's a stretch to call it "beta" -- seems more alpha level in terms of stability or feature set. - Stephen Mack
2. It's completely illegible to me on my mobile device. Like, I literally cannot read the light gray text on either the white background or the black background at the font size being used. - Stephen Mack
3. Zero privacy controls, and that's by design. That's causing some consternation: http://notyourexrotic.tumblr.com/post... - Stephen Mack
4. When the site is working, and when viewed on a desktop/laptop, the design feels responsive, elegant, and is very generous in terms of displaying artwork. As an example, try looking at this guy's feed: https://ello.co/justincline (I think that should work for anyone, even if you're not signed up). - Stephen Mack
They should probably warn people that it wasn't designed for IE. I'll have to wait until I get home to see if all the issues I'm having are browser-specific or the site overall. For now it's just clunky as hell - very alpha more than beta. - Hookuh Tinypants
Hookuh, ah, I hadn't tried IE. Sorry to hear. I've been using Chrome mostly. - Stephen Mack
Yeah, the privacy stuff (and inability to block) is too sketchy for me. I could wish Tumblr were better in this regard, but even some rudimentary controls are better than none. - Jennifer Dittrich
A friend on FB called Ello "Tumblr for adults". - Andrew C (✔)
Andrew, that's apt. A random person commenting on a friend's FB post about Ello called it, "It's similar to twitter but not a clusterfezzik of communication going every which way. Also its design is very minimalistic and it feels like being in a really expensive and trendy Soma restaurant where it's dark and the menu is in 10pt Courier font and the portoins are really small." - Stephen Mack
Looks good but clunky to navigate. And this posting/commenting thing is confusing to me. ETA: Ahh, it's just automagically prepping me to post on someone's feed. I get it now. - Corinne L
Well, it's no Facebook... *runs* - MoTO: Team Marina
The search is a bit slow, but I imagine their systems are a little busy. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
Yeah, the whole thing is a bit slow. - Stephen Mack
So it's just like FriendFeed except for no privacy, no private groups/rooms, no DMs, no auto-import of feeds/RSS, no IM/Alerts (not that it works here anymore), no friend-of-friend discovery, no bumping of posts up to the top, no bookmarklet, no support for #hashtags, no real-time or pause, no custom lists of friends (everyone's either "Friend" or "Noise", no My Discussions link, no... more... - Stephen Mack

I fully admit the headline grabbed me so I clicked & now I can't stop staring at Renee Zellwegger's new face. Send help.
I know. I can't put my finger on what exactly changed, but something did. The eyes? - Eric - It's My Thing
Yeah, the eyes are SO WEIRD. She's not doing the squinty thing anymore... I can't quite put my finger on it either. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
The article I read quoted some doctor as saying that her eyes used to be almond shaped and now they're rounder. Also said that the lower half of the face hadn't changed much. I did not look that carefully. - bentley
Something with her nose too. It's narrower. - Tamara J. B.
Good Lord. She doesn't look like the same woman! - LB put a spell on you.
I don't know what makes me sadder, that she felt the need to change her appearance or that everyone feels the need to comment on it like it's anyone's business but her own how she looks. I really hate pop culture media. - Hookuh Tinypants
The fucked up thing is she did it probably for Hollywood and not herself. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
She's had a *lot* of plastic surgery over the years (look at Jerry Maguire, then Bridget Jones, then post-Jones....). I wonder if you have to do maintenance over time, when you start tucking and shaping and yanking and pulling your face around starting at age 21? - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
oh, I just saw a picture-- she is unrecognizable! Going that drastic will make everyone comment.... DO you all remember that horrible sitcom with Jennifer Grey, post-nose job? Where she was also completely unrecognizable as the same person?? Facial features really define us... - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Yeah. It's shocking actually. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
I don't know that Bridget Jones is an apt comparison to show she's had a history of plastic surgery, since she notoriously gained 40+ pounds to play that role in both films. In general I've always found her to look quite lovely and I think she still looks quite lovely and I'm annoyed by both the industry that puts pressure on both men and women to try and stay young-looking and the general public who sit around and gawk and gab and criticize. - Hookuh Tinypants
Her unusual facial features were what I found most attractive about her. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
agree w/ starmama. She lost the squinty eyes and the giant lips. Looks very non distinct now - Laura Norvig
I miss her old eyes. They were so unique! I think she now seems to be a cross with Robin Wright. Regardless, when will she act again? - Yvonne Renee
Uh, she has a movie coming out in 2015. Even if you don't follow film/entertainment news, all these judgy OMG HER FACE articles have been mentioning this fact. Which is sad because it shows that everyone is so busy focusing on her appearance and what they have to say about it, they're missing the more relevant details. - Hookuh Tinypants
Here is a side by side picture comparison: http://www.eonline.com/photos... Honestly, she doesn't look that different to me. Maybe a bit thinner and a bit older, but I don't see anything that looks like surgery to me. - Ken Gidley
Yeah, I looked and looked, and it seemed like she'd gotten a little thinner. But it was mostly aged skin. Also her eye's seem to be because she doesn't have the strong lines of mascara to shape the eye, and her brows aren't shaped to accentuate the brow line. - NOT THE CRICKET
Someone thought the same thing as me and just added the make-up, (especially around her eye's and eyebrows). Here's what she would have looked like with mascara, a lifted brow, and a deeper lipstick. http://imgur.com/a/0HQDf#0 (There's a second image that also adds foundation and rouge, to get rid of the oily skin.) - NOT THE CRICKET
oh. That actually looks like Renee Zellwegger! (why would she show up at a fashion magazine red carpet without makeup??/) - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
She probably has makeup on. A good makeup job means you don't look like you're wearing any at all. Good for her to feel comfortable not showing up all tarted-out like people expect her to be. - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed

sigh. when I spoke to my mother last weekend, we discussed not flying up to Maryland for xmas at my brother's b/c they're having a baby in Dec and it seems a bit much to have your first newborn AND host family xmas. by the end of our convo she was on board. no longer. kid bro and SIL convinced her to go. now I'm on the hook to make the trip too...
of course I want to visit with them and meet my niece, but does it have to be a xmas ordeal and all? I so hate the holidays. If I could disappear from Nov 15th through Jan 2nd, I totally would. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
my other option is to spend the holiday with my dad's family in Florida, but that's a whole different host of messy business. I want to run away. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra

my 16yo baby sis is on a solo train trip from FL to MI right now. texting with her during this adventure is so awesome. she can't believe all the fall colors in the trees out the window (she's never seen a real Autumn). early this morning they stopped at DC Union Station and she had breakfast there. her excitement about everything is SO cute!
I miss Union Station. Such great shops and food stalls there. - Corinne L
I told her the same thing, Corinne. how much I would love wandering around the station whenever I went to DC. the book store, the bakery, the post office. she said she bought a pin while she was there for a souvenir. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
*fist bump* I hope she'll get back there again soon. Those grand staircases in the station always made me want to swoop down them wearing a fancy gown. - Corinne L

Highest altitude archaeological sites in the world explored in the Peruvian Andes: Survival in extreme environments -- ScienceDaily
"Research conducted at the highest-altitude Pleistocene archaeological sites yet identified in the world sheds new light on the capacity of humans to survive in extreme environments. The findings were taken from sites in the Pucuncho Basin, located in the Southern Peruvian Andes." - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"The primary site, Cuncaicha is a rock shelter at 4,480 metres above sea level, with a stone-tool workshop below it. There is also a Pucuncho workshop site where stone tools were made at 4,355 metres above sea level. Climatic conditions in both sites are harsh, with factors including low-oxygen, extreme cold and high levels of solar radiation making life in the region a challenge for... more... - Maitani

Well, I wondered how long it might take and it appears that my wife is ready to return to sunnier climes. At the beginning of the new year, I'll be looking for new employment in a state well south of VA. (Right now, Florida is our #1 with Texas right behind due to both not taxing my retirement pay.) So...fun times ahead! :)
My next move is either retirement community/care facility or 6 feet under. I envy people who relocate. - Janet from FFHound!
If you look at Texas, I suggest Austin. - Kristin

My father loved the Canyon Lake region just north of San Antonio, New Braunfuls - surrounding lake seemed very retiree friendly plus pretty at least to me - WarLord
Tampa / Winterpark area in FLA is a booming tech biz region. I would caution you to really dig into the cost of living in FL though. no state tax is nice, but sales tax is 9% and property taxes are INSANE if you own a home (and fed tax deduction doesn't cover the difference) not to mention the special homeowner's insurance situation for storm coverage which WILL NEVER cover flood damage... more... - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
Sorry, Tamara with a J. SoCal is probably out but never say never. :) - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
Some of the places north of San Antonio are beautiful, so I'd definitely agree with you, Warlord. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
T-ra, thanks for the heads up. We briefly looked at the Tampa area before moving back to DC but jobs were hard all over just a few years ago. And you're definitely right about storm coverage. When we moved down we couldn't get renter's insurance because Hurricane Ike was headed our way. :) - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
Of course, the funnest part of all will be job searching in another state. Meh. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson

Jayden is a very young 16 10/12 year old. Since preschool he's been in special ed schools & classes. Many of his classes have been all boys, and he's never had a girl his age as a play cousin or friend. He was friendly w a few neighbor girls, over the years, but they quickly passed him up in their maturity so he didn't spend much time with them.
Whenever girls his age are around, I watch him & them just to get an idea of how he interacts w them, & what kind of impression he makes on the girls. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I've noticed that girls notice Jayden. Even a girl in the store with her parents, will watch him, even if nobody is saying Hi to anybody. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I taught him to speak if someone is staring at him, or if he finds himself staring. He has no problem greeting people he doesn't know, and people like that, so he gets lots of attention. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
But the teenage girl attention is unique. It's not "what nice manners" like we might think. They're probably thinking "I hope he talks to me I hope he doesn't talk to me Is he looking at me I wonder what school he goes to Is that his mom Is he looking at me" - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
They just don't know. If you can't talk Pokemon, or video games, or movie special effects...you might catch his eye, but not his conversation. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

Josiah's teacher told me this morning he has been cheeky in class this week and reallllly pushing it. At first he tried to deny it, then he seemed to think it was awfully funny.
So I just told him that since he has been wasting so much of Miss Kerr's time, Josh and I were going to waste some of his time; and that once he finished his homework, he had to write out two pages of "I must not be cheeky at school". - Melly - #TeamMarina

He tried to rail against such a cruel punishment. "I don't want to do it and I'm not going to." This protest was met with silence. It then became "I don't want to do it", to which I replied "I know". He then asked if he could do the writing whilst watching tv. I said "No, you'll get it over with quicker if you give it your full attention." - Melly - #TeamMarina
