Doing work on city hall building today and the mayor offered me a cup of coffee -- doesn't get better than that.
I thought liquid and electricity do not mix well. :-) - Stephan

Pieces go missing at an alarming rate. Someone should investigate the dad. (I heard he's got a lot of spare time this month.) - Stephan from iPhone
Although I know who stole the miniature wreath from the door! - Stephan from iPhone

Nobody knows yet but one of the walls will come down today. :-) - Stephan
Instagram makes teens and celebrities angry by killing millions of spambots | The Verge -
LMAO. Although that is a pretty massive drop. "A crackdown on spam Instagram accounts has triggered a cataclysm in the world of low-grade social media celebrities. The event, which began today after the photo-sharing service made good on its promise to start deleting millions of fake accounts, has been dubbed the "Instagram Rapture" after the follower counts of apparently popular Instagrammers were savaged. Jenni Farley, maybe better known as Jersey Shore's JWoww, saw her followers drop from 2.6 million to 115,000, while rapper Ma$e committed Instagram's version of seppuku, deleting his account after freefalling from 1.6 million followers to around 100,000." - rönin from Bookmarklet
LOL, so tragic! - Jenny H. from Android
Now if only Twitter could do the same. - April Russo
I was thinking the same, April. :-) - Stephan

When people post about the date containing numerical sequences or other oddities, I always want to point out that "14" is really "2014" which spoils it. In related news, I am a horrible pedant. #saturdayff
The excitement over these "sequences" is lost on me. - Stephan from iPhone
Stephan, I think it's related to an attraction to round numbers and seeing faces in clouds. We are natural-born pattern detectors. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
It's neither little endian nor big endian. #awkward - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Kevin's take also discounts the value of other types of sequences: 05/10/15, for example. - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist from iPhone
And 01/01/17 is the next sequential prime day. - Louis Gray
ISO standard is 2014-12-13 - Glen Campbell
rt @trove: A baby was born on 10:11, 12-13-14 in Massachusetts: - chaz2b
Considering we don't really know when Jesus was born, it maybe really should be the year 2018 instead of 2014. I wish God would have had a digital camera with the date and time on it so that he could better document the birth of his son. - Joe

I wasn't paying attention and missed three steps on the stairs at home and sprained my ankle. Idiot.

Thanks. I have a tennis ball sticking out of my ankle. Worst thing is I'll likely be missing Sophie's Christmas performance tomorrow night. Well, at least I'm not in that Sidney shop. - Stephan from iPhone

Bastard steps. Does this give you a long Christmas holiday? :) - Eivind
I took the entire month of December off. It's just a bitch hopping around on one leg. - Stephan from iPhone

I need a cuddle buddy! "Chicago set to have coldest year since 1904" Gentlemen, line up. 😋

If you weren't an introvert, I'd suggest starting Chicago Cuddle Parties. - Spidra Webster
The opposite here; it has been above zero for the last week (sometimes barely). - Stephan from iPhone
Isn't there some lady that started "cuddling" as a service? Like, you could cuddle with her for an hour (she'd charge, of course).*shudders* I mean, yay for her serving a need but yikes! - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
About to enter a mall whose parking lots are completely full. I'm an idiot.
A brave one, tho. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

stepped in dog poop outside a friend's house this evening. left my shoes outside to deal with later and when i came out to leave i discovered they'd been stolen. someone isn't picky!
Whaaaaaaaat. o_O - Jennifer Dittrich
That sucks. - Stephan from iPhone
well, i figure the weekend can only get better now. right? *hopeful puppydog eyes* - Big Joe Silence
You're stuck inside and have to leave the grocery shopping to someone else. Smart. - Stephan from iPhone
i ordered new shoes (and underpants) this evening. then i was informed "Merry Christmas!" *sadpanda* - Big Joe Silence
is it not possible to view tweets or lists via the Twitter website without logging in?
Is someone able to confirm/deny this? Same happens from the Hootsuite app. - Stephan from iPhone
I see them from the desktop. - Eric - ill subliminal
Me too. Hootsuite is fixed by re-authorizing the app. I seem to get redirected on Safari and Chrome on iOS. It appears to load, then it loads the login page (even for public accounts). - Stephan from iPhone
Just noticed on the desktop too how the Twitter page loads then redirects to the login page. Must be something that twitter is doing. - Stephan from iPhone
Supreme Court of Canada: Cops can search your phone upon arrest
But it's OK: "Warrantless search must be related to arrest, and they must take notes." - Stephan
A vendor sent me several 600-700MB product catalogs via DropBox. Since it is blocked at work I am downloading them via my 3G connection. It may be done downloading by tomorrow morning.
DropBox is blocked at work? I sure hope your employer is paying your phone data bill this month... - Spidra Webster
I pay my phone and internet bills with the company credit card. :) Many useful sites are blocked. It's always embarrassing when trying to find solutions with third parties. "Sorry, that's blocked. Oh, that too. Eh, can't do that either." - Stephan from iPhone

Most of the time it's subconscious until you can't take it anymore. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
What triggers that change? - Stephan from iPhone
I think it's a slow burn to when you're consciously aware of how bloody annoying the SO's quirks are. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Is it the beginning of the end that makes you aware or the awareness that signals the beginning of the end. (Not trying to be a smart ass.) - Stephan from iPhone
Hey, if it's rock solid you can suspend disbelief for a two-hour movie. Relationships: same but for a lifetime. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
No but i can change you! - Steve C Team Marina
RAID recovery will take all day. Wish I had installed OpenManage first and started this from within the OS. #yawn

There were some other folks working here today and they were nice enough to bring me hamburgers for lunch. - Stephan from iPhone
Wonder what I will find tomorrow morning early. Either two rebuilt servers or two wrecks. Should have bought two webcams to monitor progress over the VPN. - Stephan
The girls have discovered the joy of bubble wrap. Pop...pop...pop... :)
A rite of passage. <3 - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
So funny seeing Sarah doing her best but her thumb is too small to properly pop the bubbles. - Stephan from iPhone
RT @pnashjenkins: Their Christmas card suggests that Cherie Blair's been dead for weeks and Tony's straining from the effort of holding up her embalmed body
One of the scariest things I have seen on the internet tonight... - Stephan
All I can say is, #Mr3 has proven to be a poor surgeon. #legomen #backwardslegs
My wife glued the hats, heads and legs on some of the mini figures to prevent any frustration by the 2 y/o. That's no fun. - Stephan from iPhone
That prevents frustration? I'd think it would *cause* frustration. - bentley
My account is blocked for some reason and the only way to unblock it is by providing them with my phone number. No, thanks. No access to my data either. How fucked up is that?
To get to my data I fed it my work phone number. Things like this make me remember why I hate the cloud. - Stephan from iPhone

To my Canadian, Australian, and British friends, I would like to wish a safe and peaceful Happy Random Thursday.
Thanks mate, but it's Friday :D - Mo Kargas

Good one, Mo. - bentley

Happy Thursday, Stephen. - Stephan from iPhone
Grocery shopping was a mistake: 9 items, 2 hours. I want to hibernate until summer.
In front of me were 3 people. With a record number of coupons, gift certificates, items that wouldn't scan, supervisor interventions, difficult questions, and not the fastest employee. - Stephan from iPhone
My first iPhone 5 had the common power button problem (stopped functioning). Now that the replacement is out of warranty I can turn the phone off but not back on (need to plug it in to the charger). The button itself seems to function fine. Weird.
I have the same issue with my iphone 5, sometimes the power button does not work. fortunately my contract is up Dec 10th. - Mike Nencetti
I recently had the battery exchanged as part of Apple's free replacement program (bad battery batch), and they replaced the power button at the same time. :-) - Nils Sandin
The button on this phone never fails me for a screenshot or to turn off the phone, that's so weird about it. (Previous 5 definitely had a faulty button.) - Stephan from iPhone

Thank you. - bentley
That's quite the battle, Mike. - Stephan from iPhone
Glad that this is helping you, and that you have a record. It's hard to know what to say, Mike, but I think of you and Beverly often, and I wish you all the love and joy you can find together ((hugs)) - WoH: Professor MOTHRA

Thanks everyone. I had been forgetting to use Twitter, so I thought I would leave the link as my last tweet for a while. Forgot it would filter here. Been busy managing the hotel/ restaurant/ zoo that is our home. Her condition is changing slowly, vitals are good. I'm good. - Mike Nencetti
Still thinking of you both. Hope your weekend is going well ((hugs)) - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
We celebrated thanksgiving today, in case she is unable to later this month. Have a full house of family. We had a successful first week with her bedridden, keeping her clean and comphy.

Thank you for posting this. - Brian Johns
Wonder if I could bring an emotional support pig to work? Miiiiight get awkward when have to do service call at the local pork slaughterhouse.
But trust me, that place is where I need the most support ever. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
He could offer emotional support to you and his buddies there. - Stephan
I’ve been in the process of trimming various accounts and am weighing uninstalling Facebook v canceling account.
I could uninstall it (privacy concerns) and access it via a dedicated browser like Opera. Or just eliminate it altogether. - Stephan from iPhone
The youngest one has figured out how to unlock childproof cabinet locks. So proud (and so inconvenient).
Time for superstrong magnetics! - Spidra Webster
Smart, just like her daddy! - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
It's big sister who is unknowingly demonstrating the trick and Sarah memorizing. Soon we will run out of high shelving to store dangerous stuff, like glitter. :) - Stephan from iPhone
oh, glitter could be very dangerous! :) - Tamara J. B.
You'll soon find out how much. :) - Stephan
Can't wait. :) - Tamara J. B.

My nieces and nephew are sleeping upstairs and my brother and sister-in-law are at a movie. They don't get out much because, as my brother puts it, they have 4 kids and trust issues. Lol! Glad I'm here to give them a night out.
Nice! I bet they appreciate that. - Stephan from iPhone
What did they go see? - Stephen Mack
Mockingjay of course! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!

Presumably the tap will be frozen too. - John (bird whisperer)
