As I brushed Emily's hair this morning, she said to me "Now I will be beautiful like you, Mummy." <3 #fb
I'm wearing a t-shirt that's been slept in, no bra or pants, messy greasy bed hair, oily spotty face, huge eye bags, I probably smell, and she still thinks I'm beautiful. - Melly
That's because she (like kids everywhere) can see your inner self. - Bren from iPhone
At what age do we get brainwashed about beauty? - Stephan from iPhone
I'm seeing it in her already Stephan and it makes me sad. She will put a dress on and say "Now I'm pretty", like she wasn't before. - Melly
I swear I thought that said "Messy greasy beard" and I was about to start clutching my pearls. - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed
Melly, I am also seeing this with our two year old. I find it appalling. Another educational opportunity, sadly. - Stephan from iPhone
Hookuh you get a free moustache ride. - Melly

After Louis Gray posted Bret Taylor's Quora post about the current state of Friendfeed I keep getting "Service Unavailable" errors and in the back of my mind I keep thinking the end is near.
Also, that thread sure took a weird turn. - John (bird whisperer)
don't they all? - MoTO Boychick Devil
The thread took a weird turn, but it was a good source for people to block. - Greg GuitarBuster
^ Indeed :) - Stephan from iPhone
A communications disruption could mean only one thing: invasion. - Fabrizio Casu

Pretty baby! Congratulations <3 - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
So adorable! - Katy S
I'm a happy boy :) - Michael W. May
Congratulations! - Stephan
EDIT: 1 metric cup is ~106% of a U.S. cup. Do with that as you will.
Gonna make some 95 Layer Dip. - Spidra Webster
I'd eat that. - Micah from FFHound!
Sounds like a sales conspiracy to get people to pay more for less. - lris
Wikipedia makes it sound like it's vice versa, but that's as far as I got before I was distracted by something else. - Meg VMeg
Pretty sure 250 mL > 8 fl oz. (Looks it up) yeah, 250 mL to 236 mL. - Andrew C (✔)
You're both right. Just testing you. - Micah
That's why I drink my coffee in metric cups. - Stephan from iPhone
Spell "I metric cup" out loud. - Mark Trapp from iPhone
If it wasn't for tonight's hidden surprise card from Sophie saying "I love you, Dad" my day would have easily been filed as one of the worst.
I love that kid. - Stephan
That is really really sweet. - Spidra Webster
*hugs* - Alix May
Josh's workplace are having a "No Email" day. It's to encourage people to get up from their desks more and interact face to face with colleague. Which is great in theory. Except it's a call centre. You can't interact with your colleague when they're always on the phone to customers.
Even more ridiculous - the colleagues Josh needs to interact with most are in Melbourne. - Melly
Yeah, that doesn't make sense... - Spidra Webster
That's just bizarre. You can tell that the people who thought that up are the people who don't actually take calls. - Jennifer Dittrich
Right??! - Melly
He should submit a request to travel! - Stephan from iPhone
Skype. Did they say no skyping? - bentley
They can't do something stupid like that where I work, or the company would collapse (too many remote workers). - April Russo
Skyper, nooooooooo Skyping! - Melly
Christina Pikas
can normal people just link through to flickr any more? when i try i get stuck on a page that wants me to install an app (even if i'm using a regular computer).
That worked for me, but all the ones from johns hopkins library blog do not. hrm. - Christina Pikas
Sophie's response after she discovered the tooth fairy has paid her a visit was priceless.
What? Are you kidding me? The tooth fairy came and she spoiled me!!! - Stephan from iPhone
The money has sparkles!!! - Stephan from iPhone
I love her. Hahah - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!

One of the lesser known Canadian divides is between Craigslist users and Kijiji users.
Is it ever. I remember the days in BC however, that was the place for used vehicles. - Micah from FFHound!
I'm always surprised when I see anyone talk about using Kijiji, and then I remember that Over There, Craigslist is not that popular. - Andrew C (✔)
Anecdotally, I'd say kijiji is talked about more than even eBay here in Alberta. - Micah from FFHound!
Huh! I thought Craiglist at least covered Western Canada. Is it just BC? - Andrew C (✔)
Yeah, Craigslist is not exactly on our radar. - Stephan from iPhone
Andrew, oh, it exists. The same way an Android exists in a bottom drawer of John Gruber's desk. For comparison. Craigslist Calgary vehicle listings count: 619. Kijiji Calgary: 4,603. - Micah
"Craigslist Calgary vehicle listings count: 619", meanwhile Craigslist Vancouver has 100K listings. - Andrew C (✔)
Maybe it's Cascadia vs the rest of Canada then. - Andrew C (✔)
Google search is asking for captchas. It never accepts them and keeps throwing one at me. Of course, I disallow scripting or cookies so that may be my punishment.
Proof that you are actually a robot? - Joe
I can neither confirm nor deny. :) - Stephan from iPhone
You're breaking the Google second commandment: Thou shall share thy identity with Google with all thy heart. - Technodad
I'm sure they recognize the IP address. I'll just switch to Bing, because surely I can trust MS. :-) - Stephan from iPhone
I switched to DuckDuckGo shortly before it became a built-in choice in iOS and OS X 10.10. Never had a second thought. - Technodad from iPhone
I find the search results there often less relevant than Google's, I have to give them that. - Stephan from iPhone
And she stood out there all afternoon to see that building go down, then missed it because of her stupid yappy dog!

Should a two years old tell you she poked at her diaper and it "went everywhere", take it serious, people.

Nothing like starting the day by spilling boiling hot coffee all over your hand. Ouch! >.<
Damn, girl. I think that's a sign to head back to bed. The universe isn't playing fair! - Hookuh Tinypants
Owww - Stephen Mack from iPhone
:-( - Stephan from iPhone
Bastard coffee. - Eivind
^ I'm going to make this my rally cry on a bad day from now on. "BASTARD COFFEE!" *flings mug against wall* - Hookuh Tinypants
What coffee giveth it can taketh away - Mo Kargas
Shannon - GlassMistress
If I don't get up and do somthing soon my only accomplishments for the day will be getting dressed and putting on shoes (and I only did that because I was cold)
That's a lot. I have accomplished the same, minus shoes. :) - Stephan from iPhone

"You said things about my Texas/That just were not kind/And if I get a chance/I'll open up a cowboy bootshop in your behind" - Larry Gatlin, Moment of Zen, Feb. 4, 2015

Fell tonight coming home bringing Chow Mein. Armload of carry out, a patch of ice 3 feet from my door and down I went. Seems like sprained hell out of my ankle. The good news, I went down so fast that I never got a hand down, so NO hand arm damage. Oh well limping a bit (more than a bit) but able to walk after a fashion so life goes on
Ankle much improved after a nights sleep. War Lady may drive to infusion center this morning, since it's my RIGHT ankle naturally. Not so BTW, Marshmallow Vodka mixed with Orange juice is TEH bomb - WarLord
Ouch. Hope you recover quick. - Gabrielle from FFHound(roid)!
Yikes. ^ this. Glad no hand or arm damage, though. - Jennifer Dittrich
Much better tonight, ice pack most of TEH day, then a good tight wrap. Limping but mobile... Now I just have to work on a great story, slipped on ice is so pedestrian... - WarLord
I hope you'll recover completely soon, Warlord. I'm still limping from my tumble Dec. 14. - Stephan from iPhone
:( Hope you feel better soon! - Prairie & I Know It
The Chinese food was delish and they make Vietnamese egg roils and corn chowder Soup A#Allgood - WarLord
Well, that's the most important thing... :op - Melly

that's for real? i thought it was a Chick Fil A/ PETA thing - Steve C, Team Marina
Oh Drizzy. - Eric - Let Me Know
The cow was relying too much on autocorrect. - Stephan from iPhone
No apostrophes in that font - Glen Campbell
I found a manual in PDF for software I use, 11,126 pages. That’s pretty thorough.
Not so thorough, it still didn't answer my question. How do you manage to spit out 11,000+ pages without mentioning some of the critical configuration options? - Stephan from iPhone
When you get paid by the word? - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
Well... It could easily have been produced by a third party, so yes. :) - Stephan from iPhone

The five year old wants her chocolate milk well shaken, not stirred.
The 5yr old has class :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress

He he... Sophie left the little 7" tablet on the kitchen table. Sarah (2) hid it but we weren't sure where. All you have to do is sit on your knees and look at her eye level in cabinets. We spotted it but Sarah isn't saying anything.
Revenge for all the toys that are being taken from her occasionally. :-) - Stephan from iPhone
(BTW, Sarah is such a gentle sweetheart that we are letting her get away with this.) - Stephan from iPhone
You've got to be kidding: Ottawa daycare is promising a ‘vaccine-free environment’
And just think, those other daycares with vaccinated children are just easily-prevented-childhood-illness free. - Jennifer Dittrich

Yep, gotta keep your kids safe from those pesky, shedding, vaccinated kids. - Melly
We have returned the borrowed crutches and I have put away the cane. I wore my boots this week. Still having difficulty with stair cases or walking on uneven snow but I'll take it! #progress

I bought a label maker the other day. I might be obsessed.
When you label the label maker with a label that says label maker we'll send intervention tam - WarLord
Don't think I haven't been tempted! - Prairie & I Know It from Android
How can people live without one? - Stephan
According to my wife, one of the best gifts I've ever bought her. - Micah from FFHound!
I have my old Dymo one from back in the day. Need to order new tape for it. - Corinne L
1st things to do with a new label maker.. is make the label of This Label Maker is the Property of .... well at least thats the 1st thing I do. - Me
i still have my vintage chromed metal Dymo labeller from the 1960s. - Big Joe Silence
I still really want one!!! I should just break down and buy one. What did you get? - The Other Yvonne
Joe, is it like this? Because now I want one too! :) - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
Fun size! - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
So far today, I have installed 24GB of software updates on my laptop. I lost track of the amount of coffee consumed.
I think 24GB is an acceptable unit of measurement for coffee. - Kevin Johnson
How much data would that be if I were to teleport that amount of coffee? - Stephan from iPhone
uh... about 24GB worth... :) - Kevin Johnson
GigaBeans - Kevin Johnson
Ha, today that increased by about 7GBeans! - Stephan from iPhone
What is your current favorite software? - Sean McBride
My favorite software is Siemens TIA Portal v13. It has its flaws but it clearly has been designed to make engineering easier. - Stephan from iPhone
That $39/mo offer from Wind Mobile (unlimited data Can/US and unlimited voice Canada, 2500 min US) would save me a pile if I would pay off my remaining device balance and could bring my own phone.
I use these guys: and have had good luck with it. Was just looking to see if they handled Canada and technically they don't, but their FAQ says you can make and receive calls from Canadian numbers without incurring roaming or other penalties. - Sir Shuping is just sir
I'd rather play it safe and stay on this side of the border. :) - Stephan from iPhone

If FF were a university, would this be an academic question? #questionmark
Can a question be both academic *and* rhetorical? - Victor Ganata
The trajectory with which FF is developing mostly suggests eschatological questions. - ⓒⓔⓐ
Do you have a citation for this? - Joe
*skips class* - SAM
Is this going to be in the final? - bentley
Who's Mark? - Andrew C (✔)
FF isn't much of a university. Shouldn't at least a few have graduated by now? - Stephan from iPhone
We are on the 8 year plan. Changing majors 5 times wasn't the best idea. - Joe
I would be in academic probation. - imabonehead
Robot House! - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
My wife did the snow removal routine this morning. One of the last times. Yesterday, I was able to slide into my boot, and, much to my surprise, was able to take it off without too much hassle. Also, I ditched the crutches. For those moments I need it, I now have a cane. That makes me so happy. (The snow makes me want to sit own and cry, though.)
Yeah for healing! Snow is boo! - Janet from FFHound!
Spring will be here in a month and a half. We are already planning for the summer. :-) - Stephan
Snow makes me want to sit down and cry and I have no issues with walking. =) - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
Those emotions must come at a later age, when you realize all the chores involved. The girls love it, even though it was -24C this morning. :-) - Stephan
I'm glad you're well on the mend. - Spidra Webster
Thank you. I'm glad I can see light at the end of the tunnel. - Stephan from iPhone
Please be careful with all that ice & snow. Don't walk anywhere that has not been shoveled, salted, and tested by someone else. We don't want you falling and undoing any recovery you have made thus far. - April Russo
April, that would mean I can't walk anywhere here. :) But snow-covered ice is pretty much my biggest enemy. - Stephan from iPhone
My husband began his recovery from being hit by a car, in winter. I was very protective of him and wouldn't let him outside unless the ground was clear of ALL ice & snow. For me, this meant a daily walk around our apartment building with a shovel and a bag of salt, to make sure he had a safe track-like exercise path that went completely around the building. (on my Fitbit, it's about 100... more... - April Russo
I use a cane for the walk to/from my vehicle. It's the unexpected unevenness that sometimes hurts the foot due to a spot with hard snow. I'll live. - Stephan from iPhone

I love it how Flash file names change with each version because adapting my firewall rules is my favorite waste of time.
Why did I send that to your feed as well? I blame Flash. - Stephan
SAVIOUR OF THE UNIVERSE!! *snicker* - Big Joe Silence
Hm? - Amit Patel
Amit, I meant for example: FlashUtil32_16_0_0_296_Plugin.exe -- unless you were responding to Joe. :) - Stephan from iPhone
Oh hm, interesting. I haven't installed Flash on Windows but on Mac I see the version number in the folder instead of in the installer executable: /homebrew-cask/Caskroom/flash/\ Adobe\ Flash\ Player.pkg - Amit Patel
That would impact the firewall similarly. I am not a fan of software that does that, unless several versions can live in parallel. - Stephan from iPhone
