Starting the great Mass St. Eat-a-thon. Starting on the north end, heading south! (@ Quinton's Bar & Deli)
My new book! I have it in my hot little hands!!!
Nice! - Anne Bouey
Yay Robin! - MoTO Moca Blend
Woohoo! - Kirsten
*happiness bump* - Marie
Latte and cupcake (for me), pour over and cupcake ( for Tab) and people watching for Lily... (at @AlchemyCoffeeKs)
I am stumped. How am I supposed to dress today? According to my phone's weather app, it's 27 degrees (with a "real feel" of 35) and a projected high of 69 (which, if it's like the last few day's projected highs we will actually hit somewhere in the high 70s).
Dress in layers. (please note I cannot come up with any situation where "dress in layers" would be an inappropriate response: Going to a library conference? Dress in layers! Work in an office? dress in layers! Going skiing? Dress in layers! Anticipating sex? Dress in layers! (it's like unwrapping a present, right? ) ) - ellbeecee
While this is excellent advice, it is advice that I have clearly ignored while clothes shopping. I have nothing that is layer-able in my closet. *sigh* I need to go buy some layers, apparently. Especially if I plan to be unwrapped any time soon... ;) - WebGoddess
Posted without comment, in re the Satanist Monument in OK: "... If by religion the Founders [of America] meant 'any system of belief in a supernatural power,' it's hard to see how the Satanists can be denied," Fischer writes. "But if by religion [they] meant 'Christianity' and its various denominations, then the answer to this problem is quite...
simple" - WebGoddess
Yup. - Kirsten
Ah - the benefits of working close to, but not at, home. I stopped in for lunch at my apartment and flipped my pot roast (which sounds like it should be a euphemism, but it isn't) and then left, leaving my dogs to deal with the smell of roasting beef all day.
what time is dinner? - MoTO Moca Blend
Can I officially make "flipping my pot roast" a euphemism though even if not in this case? - Steve C
@MoTO - it's going to be 6ish tonight, unless the smell of the meat makes us insane, in which case it may be earlier. You may want to leave now to ensure you are here on time. @SteVe - oh, I hope you do!! - WebGoddess
Whew - looks like Buffalo is gonna get slammed. Better be careful on your commute, Blake... ;)
It's ok, the van is AWD! - Blake
Thank you, past Webgoddess, for putting that yummy container of chili in the freezer for current Webgoddess to enjoy. Yum!
I just saw a pic on Twitter labeled "Python meeting in progress" and it was a pic of 5 old white men. I was briefly disgusted by the thought of a major programming language being guided by a few old white dudes when I realized the tweet was from Eric Idle and the Python meeting wasn't about the coding language at all...
^^^might be a touch sensitive about females in tech issues... - WebGoddess
More worried about the age hate ;) - Janet from FFHound!
While at the movie theater to take in the new Thor film, I saw this notice and was amused. I thought I'd share it with you all...

Just beware those a*holes from District 1! - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Splat!! The insects in Kansas aren't fucking around!! Ok, this was a bird, not an insect, but of course a friend had to make the "what was the last thing that went through that bird's head" joke (in case you are unfamiliar, the answer is "his ass". So, that was my Saturday fun, how was your weekend?
2013-11-17 10.26.24.jpg
Whoa! You're ok, though? - Kirsten
Yup - we were a bit shaken up (especially Mike who was in the passenger seat *directly* behind the impact crater that is now my windshield). No harm done except to the bird and my car, which can be fixed!! (my car can be fixed, that is. I don't think the bird is fixable...) - WebGoddess
Yeah, I can imagine that would've been startling! We had a hawk fairly close to the car on Sunday, but not at all this close! - Kirsten
Oh man, crazy. - Stephen Mack
With our Josh
claimed him as tribe, have you? - Jenica
Pretty much. He's being assimilated. - WebGoddess from Android
I went to the KC River Market ( on Sunday and fell a wee bit in love. Such a great place to hang out and EAT. Next time I go, I shall fast for 24 hours in preparation...
The cover design for my next book. It's getting close to being a real thing!!
bumping for the morning crowd - WebGoddess
can't wait to read it! - Sir Shuping is just sir
Ohhhh! My sinuses are clear! That leftover chicken vindaloo was spicier than the original version. My mouth is tingly-burny and that is a good thing!! Lunch was a success!!
On Sunday I made a batch of no-bake bars ( - sort of like the no-bake cookies that I grew up on, but in bar form. I just ate one for my afternoon snack and I might be a little bit in love. These are sooooo good! That's all I really needed to say.
Hmm. Looks good (I bet I could find something to sub in for that nasty coconut that's in them...) - ellbeecee
Oh, they look gorgeous... *adds ingredients to the shopping list* - Heleninstitches
The scent of Chicken Vindaloo is beginning to waft through the house, making my dogs somewhat crazy... 20 minutes left on the timer!!
I had JUST decided that going out to the Quantrill's Raid Eve program at the local library was more than I could reasonably expect to accomplish this evening when my phone beeped at me. I checked it ('cause that's what I've been trained to do) and it informs me that I need to leave by 6:51 if I want to make the Quantrill's Raid Eve program on time.
Considering that I'm unshowered and still unmotivated, I'm not going to go, but Google Now is a pretty amazing thing sometimes... - WebGoddess
What a coincidence! Me, too! - Kirsten
I love how many people are *present* in this moment. Makes me feel good about humanity! - WebGoddess
Sorry it took so long but I'm Here now - JAson FLeming from Android
Monday? I just dumped 18 oz of *excellent* coffee onto my desk, my papers, my computer (the one I'm posting from now, so no harm done - so far), my desk chair, my bags that were over my arm and my hip/leg area. The calendar says it's Tuesday, but I'm not so sure. Today needs a do-over.
I went to the farmer's market today, despite me being 6 days til payday broke, because Chipotle was giving away $10 market tokens to the first 250 people to show up (yes, I was there at 6:50am). I got a bear of honey (which was all I *really* needed) and a honey soap/lip balm pack for a mother-out-of-law b-day gift for .50 total. Score!!
Huh. Just found out via FB that my uncle passed away. Nothing unexpected - he's been failing for a couple of months, but it's an odd way to find out that a family member has gone...
*hugs* - Kirsten
Thanks guys - it hit me a bit harder than I thought it would, actually. I appreciate the hugs!! - WebGoddess
So far today I've gone to the farmer's market (got some yummy local cheese and some arugula as well as a bit of honeycomb for Mike) and scrubbed the bathroom and kitchen. I'm resting now before I pick up and vaccum the living and TV rooms. I'm planning on pretending the bedroom doesn't exist. What are your plans for the day?
We went out for breakfast, Pete has taken David home for the weekend, I've had my haircut, played my piano, now doing chores. Pete will be home soon then I suspect we will do very little. - Heleninstitches
My whiteboard today at work. Yesterday, while I stopped in to water some plants and let the boy child print off an extra sheet of music for band camp, the message at the top right appeared. I'm a lucky mommy.
I just wrote a .vbs script that called a .bat script that sets a date/time stamp, pings and then runs tracert on an IP address and logs all the information gathered to a file labeled with the current date. While I'm *much* more comfy doing stuff like this in bash (on Linux), I'm pretty pleased with my hour or so of work. *preens*
Any chance that this script runs from an AD server? - Julian
Nope - we're going to run it as a scheduled task from selected circulation computers in our area to see when/if they are experiencing slowdowns in their access to our catalog. That would be lovely, but I'm dealing with 40+ independent libraries - each one has it's own setup... - WebGoddess
Most of my preening comes from the fact that I don't get to do stuff like this very often. Once I became director of tech, I started spending more time writing tech plans and consulting on tech policies than writing scripts and coding stuff. I still got it, though... ;) - WebGoddess
Even better is that even though you plan and run stuff, you have an affinity for the details of how things work. I think it makes evaluation, policy, and planning easier and more efficient for all. - Julian
Hopefully!! ;) - WebGoddess
I made shrimp vindaloo tonight and it was pretty damn tasty. Smaller cubes on the potatoes next time and something less work-intensive than shrimp as the protein will *nail* it next time I make it. Yummmmmmmmy!
I've lived in Lawrence for 8 months now and have not visited the local McCalister's Deli once since I got here. Today, however, I am having a FIERCE craving for a muffeletta sandwich, which I know they do pretty well. I just need to decide if the inevitable swelling of the ankles from the salt hit will be worth it...
NEKLS just bought a new van. Our car dealership just delivered us a big ol' tin of fresh, chocolate chip cookies. My boss is concerned that this looks like a bribe and is insisting that we eat the evidence quickly. I really do like my job, the vast majority of the time.
On the other hand, I'm stuffed full. - WebGoddess
