If Burning Man is rain delayed past the 5th inning, will it be called as a loss?
Yes unless the protest is upheld then it will be resumed on the next trip through town. - Steve C Team Marina
Maybe human sacrifices in effigy really does cause rain ? - Eric Logan
They did shut down the gate for many hours! We were trapped. - Stephen Mack from iPhone

So.... I don't want to jinx it by posting on FB just yet, but.... Luke is potty trained!!!!! YAY!!!!
Yay!!! - Anne Bouey
For the last few months I could tell it was just laziness on his part, but since Portland he's been wearing training pants with cute puppies on them that he does NOT want to soil. That, plus being homebound for a week and me making him use the potty every hour, has sealed the deal!!! - Yvonne Renee
Woohoo!!!!! That's awesome! I planning on kicking it up a notch with Emily once warmer weather sets in. I'll be taking her shopping for undies ^_^ - Melly - #TeamMarina
Warmer weather DEFINITELY made a difference. He either walked around in just training pants or naked when we were hanging out at the hotel in Portland and he really didn't want to pee on the floor... (thank goodness for that!) - Yvonne Renee
Hooray! (Sorry to be late.) - Stephen Mack from iPhone

Seattle meetup next week? Either at Bumbershoot or daytime in Tuesday after Labor Day.
I might be able to, I'll check what else I've got going on :D - Jennifer Dittrich
bump! - Andrew C (✔)
I'd love to if scheduling works; I won't be at Bumbershoot but depending on parking I can get somewhere nearby. Tuesday would have to be in the evening if you're still around! - joey
I'm flying out Tuesday evening, sorry! - Andrew C (✔)
Okay, maybe Sunday or Monday, then! - joey
I may be getting too old for some of the last shows of the night anyways. =P - Andrew C (✔)
Awesome, hopefully I'll have a weekend. My former sketch group is performing at Bumbershoot this year! - joey
Last bump? - Andrew C (✔) from Android
Oh, shoot - I'm booked solid at work tomorrow. It was a bit of surprise on Friday, and I forgot to update. I wish I weren't so far away :/ - Jennifer Dittrich
S'okay. I'll probably visit again. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
True, but I hate that I dropped the ball! Stupid work :P - Jennifer Dittrich
Do any of the new car audio systems have @shazam built in? That would be a cool feature.
That would be cool. With Pandora and HD Radio though, the song & artist names are displayed anyway. - Amit Patel
Not that I have seen. The closest one is the toyota that can connect with a Nexus 7. - Me
I like the concept, but not sure what the value would be. Everything that plays in newer car stereos already tells you artist & track, doesn't it? FM does, Bluetooth will, HD radio does, and satellite radio does. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE from WinForFeed

I finally just started reading *The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao* even though my sister got it for me for my birthday almost two years ago.
The occasional interspersal of Dominican Spanish slang with Sindarin is cracking me up. - Victor Ganata from iPhone

Thinking again about Junot Diaz's thesis that people-of-color in the U.S. *are* science fictional in of themselves. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
The U.S. is advertised as utopia (exceptionalism FTW!) but of course all utopias are dystopias under the surface. And the lives of the children of immigrants are Campbellian archetypes. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
I know that each colonized country has it's own specific twisted history, but I can't help s/Trujillo/Marcos/ while reading it. The U.S. has backed a lot of dictators. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
I didn't know much about the DR until I started reading this book. I certainly didn't know anything about the Trujillo dictatorship. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
The list of concurrent U.S.-backed Caribbean and Central/South American dictators in the Wikipedia post on Trujillo is instructive - Victor Ganata from iPhone
Heh, Wikipedia has a convenient list of all the dictators we've supported - Victor Ganata from iPhone

First without my parents was Funk on the Green, Parliament Funkadelic, One Way, Bootsy Collins...1978. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Depends on how you define "concert". Does this include the local band who plays in a bar? A show at a county fair that you see with fair admission, but you don't really care about the band? Where you pay to actually see the band? - Joe
My dad took me and a friend to see Styx on the Mr. Roboto tour. \m/ - Steele Lawman

The Bangles, summer 1987. My parents may have taken me to one prior to that, but that's the first one I remember attending without parental supervision. - Corinne L

Have you, or anyone you know, ever regretted getting a dog? My husband seems convinced that it's too much money and too much stress and too much responsibility. I said that it's more love and more energy and more reasons to get out of the house to exercise. He suggested getting a smaller cage animal, but to me it's not the same thing.
Short answer, yes. Some weren't prepared for the work, or had an especially difficult dog, or resented that they were stuck with all of the responsibility. (Agreed, though, that a different type of caged animal isn't really a substitute.) - Jennifer Dittrich from FFHound!
Thanks, Jennifer. It's true I hadn't considered that we could end up with a difficult dog. I was HOPING that if we adopted from the animal shelter we'd know some of the animal's short-comings beforehand, but they could also get sick. I really hope he comes around on this one. I don't think my life would be complete without a dog. We had 2 when I was growing up so I'm not going into this blindly, but he seems terrified. - Yvonne Renee
Gypsie (Siberian Husky) was a LOT of work, a lot more than I'd imagined. I'd never brought up a dog from puppyhood before, just had our childhood dog who was older than me, and then a foster dog who was already a few years old when she came into my care. A lot of times I thought "WHAT HAVE WE GOTTEN OURSELVES INTO??!!!" But she was totally worth all the angst :o) - Melly - #TeamMarina
Melly, I'm terrified of raising a puppy my first go at this. I JUST got done potty training my child! Lol! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
SF Giants 11-2 against Brewers in the 7th. They are unstoppable!

Today, Kristine and I did an 8 mile loop hike in Cool, CA. It's in El Dorado County. This is what Fitbit says it looks like. Lots of ups and downs!

One of the most important decisions in a young startup is what color (white)boards and markers to use.

Couldn't find my credit card. Found it with some of Emily's stash of business/game/bubblegum/playing cards. #fb
I found Luke's other sock crammed in a tissue box. Awesome. - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!

Duncan's ultrasound is this morning. We've already been warned that there is no fix for anything they might find in his liver and care going forward would be palliative but if you've got a spare 'good doggy' thought we'd still appreciate it.
Absolutely xxxx - Melly - #TeamMarina
Good luck. - MoTO: Team Marina from Android
Definitely! - L to tha B from Android
Poor dude, he wants no part of this...fought them all the way down the hall - Shannon - GlassMistress from iPhone
Throwing all my good doggie thoughts to Duncan. - Kevin Johnson from Android
It took several peanutbutter treats but he lived. The vet cant see anything in his liver, and its size is good, so the next step is two weeks of meds and a new blood test. Its still a mystery but at least it does not seem to be immediatly dire. Thanks for the good thoughts! - Shannon - GlassMistress
Still keeping him in healing thoughts. - Janet from FFHound!
Yay for Not the Liver. - Betsy
I'm glad that it isn't the liver but hope they can figure out what's going on soon so he can feel better. - vicster: full-bodied
Poor puppy! Glad they've ruled out the liver, but I hope he's feeling better soon! - Yvonne Renee
So glad they were able to rule that out, but hope they get you good answers soon. - Jennifer Dittrich
It is still a liver problem, one of the enzymes in his liver should be at 20 and was over 470. We just ruled out a mass in the liver but still have no clue why the readings are so far off. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Poor muffin. - L to tha B from Android
Poor pudding. We're sending all our get-well vibes. - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤
Poor doggie. Hope they get it figured out soon. - Anne Bouey

I'm jealous of my friend's nanny. She gets to spend lots of time with my friend AND her kids. Maybe *I* should be her nanny! Lol!

One of my favorite artsits is coming to Chi but the show is 20miles from home. That's a $60+ cab ride. Maybe he's not so much my fave...
What's the show? - Betsy
Federico Aubele. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
No way to take a bus or other public transportation? - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
For that price you could rent a car for the day. - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Or ride share? - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Won't rent if I want to be the drinky one! Ride sharing might be tough because of where I live but it might be the only other alternative to a cab. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android

#ThrowOutThursday! I sorted through Luke's old/too-small clothes, boxed up THREE boxes to ship back east, and bagged up more to return to the previous owner. PLUS I returned some things to OSH that were cluttering up the entryway. Less stuff in my house!
I unsubscribed from 3 catalogs! #lessclutterin - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Heading to post office today with FOUR BOXES!!! Woot woot! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!

So now the media is talking about Obama's suit as the most important thing out of yesterday's press conference. So much for the idea that the media only talks about the fashion choices of female politicians. :-(
Yeah - gender equality, in sort of a "race to the bottom" manner. - Brian Johns

If it's made of glass, my husband will eventually find a way to break it. No exceptions. And he will usually be in his bare feet and need rescuing. CRASH...AHHHH!! is just his way of saying "Good Morning!"
So, now I need to find a 10 1/8" lid. - April Russo
