I am saying all this, Derrick, but did we bust that puppy out at all when you lived here? May need to rectify this... - Zamms
Just a couple times! My recipe file is chockfull of options and opportunity, my friend. - Derrick
I never used it as much as I planned but I definitely miss mine. - Akiva

Subway: 'Yoga mat' chemical almost out of bread -
Subway: 'Yoga mat' chemical almost out of bread
"Subway says an ingredient dubbed the "yoga mat" chemical will be entirely phased out of its bread by next week. The disclosure comes as Subway has suffered from an onslaught of bad publicity since a food blogger petitioned the chain to remove the ingredient. The ingredient, azodicarbonamide, is approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use as a bleaching agent and dough conditioner. It can be found in a wide variety products, including those served at McDonald's and Starbucks and breads sold in supermarkets. But the petition gained attention after it noted the chemical was also used to make yoga mats." - imabonehead from Bookmarklet
I'm going to make a yoga mat out of broccoli - Amit Patel

It's probably immaterial, but there's something about saying "for years" when you mean "two years" that irks me.
It's technically correct! - Andrew C (✔)
It's technically correct, but it's also inexact :D - Victor Ganata
"forever ago" Sure even I use it sometimes but really? An infinity ago? - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
I mean, if they were on Twitter, I could understand omitting the number…. Gotta watch that character count, you know? - Victor Ganata
Maybe, but "2" is less characters than "for". - April Russo
"For zero years" - Amit Patel
"For not a single year" - John (bird whisperer)
You can try, but you'll never run out of moot points.
I'd debate you on that, but I don't think we'd get anywhere. - Jennifer Dittrich
Cows^infinity. - Kristin from iPhone
It's like a cow's opinion. It's moo. </Joey> - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android

Look, you French-speaking Swiss ladies: I went out of my way to speak French with you, so don't scoff at my Québécois accent. C'est pas gentil, les filles.
This is why I didn't continue with my HS French. I heard too many horror stories about how you can never speak it well enough to suit them. - Spidra Webster
But how would they be treated by French-speaking French ladies? - Corinne L
I'm guessing they'd get shade for their Swiss accents. - Spidra Webster
Spidra, I have yet to go to France as an adult because I am such a perfectionist and hate the thought of trying to speak in French only to be laughed at. My BFF from grade school on married a man from Brittany and her 3 daughters, all raised and educated in France, are starting to tell her that her accent is all wrong (our high school French teacher was from Montreal). - Corinne L
My middle school French teacher was from Bordeaux and taught proper, polite French (who later on went to work as an interpreter for Air France for awhile, before coming back to teaching). My high school French teacher was an Italian immigrant that learned his French on the streets of Paris, and sounded a lot like Dracula, while he chopped off the ends of words and used a lot of slang... more... - April Russo
I think my experience must be anomalous, as I have been to France a couple of times, and have had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know a number of French people here, and while they all say I have a clear accent (I'd never pass for a native speaker, know, duh...) not one has ever given me a hard time about it. My impression was always that they were pleasantly surprised... more... - Bren
Attention! I speak French properly, and well. My accent, however, is Québécois. Their attitude, and some of what I'm hearing on this thread (frankly) is classist. - Brent Schaus from FFHound!
Brent, when I said "well enough for them", I meant that I'd heard unless one's accent was perfectly France French, preferably Parisian, it wasn't good enough for them. In no way did I mean that your French wasn't proper French. - Spidra Webster
Brent - I'm intimidated to speak French around anyone who's fluent, regardless of their accent. Unless it was my favorite French phrase, "J'en ai marre!" I figure when you yell that one, accent is no longer an issue. - Corinne L
I met some French speaking Canadians on one of my travels that had the same experience in France (they were told their French sounded archaic). They were treated no better than their English speaking travel companions. - Eivind

Okay, y'all, let's flood FF with all the things we love about Tamara. Time to put massive amounts of positive energy out there for her and the baby.
I love that today I found the photo booth photos she insisted we take after seeing the Muppet movie together (the one with Jason Segal). - Corinne L
I love that she is generous, silly, funny, and always knows the right things to say when I am going through it. - Corinne L
I love that, now matter how frantic her life is, she always has time to check in on her friends to make sure we are all okay. - vicster: full-bodied
I love how she believes in good. Even when life is shit, Tam always believes in good. I aspire to emulate that. - vicster: full-bodied
I love how Tam always cares about how her friends are doing/feeling, even when she's going thru it herself. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I love how she's always responding to me with DMs that are super helpful like kids activities and Meetup groups. She takes a post where I say I need to do something and she kickstarts me into action with concrete ideas. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I love how generous, kind and thoughtful she is. And how she always knows when to DM me with a good word or smile. - Mary Carmen
I love, love her smile. So pretty in pictures, but in person she really does light up a room! - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Her generosity of spirit is huge, and so real, I can't help but love her. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Aww. Thanks, you guys. I love you all. I really do try to be a great person and friend because I genuinely care. I know I could always do more and be better but I'm grateful that you guys feel loved or special in whatever big or small way as a result of our friendship. I want the best for all of you. Xoxo - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Big smooches to you, Tam. - Corinne L
That in amongst all this she finds time to check in with Helen and be a cheerleader :) - Pete
You got there before me... in amongst all this crap, there was still a message for me this morning wishing me a great day ;-) And I've not yet told y'all about my amazing birthday present. Or how she listens to me moaning about work every week! Or the great advice she gives. Or how she's brought Josh Jackson into my life *swoon*... - Heleninstitches
I love how thoughtful and generous and kind she is :oD - Melly
I simply adore Tamara's sunshine! <3 - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
She's always very eager and generous with running advice and I appreciate that. She's a wonderful lady. - Jed from iPhone
I love how she never gives up, no matter how much crap life throws her way. How she responds to life's adversities, not pretending everything is always okay, admitting when she is having a shit day, but always ready for a brighter day tomorrow. She has a lovely soul, she's a great hugger, and she has a radiant smile. - Jenny H.
Thank you. I barely slept last night and my heart still hurts, yes, I'm angry too, but it was such a bright spot to wake up to these messages. I appreciate the love. *group hugs* - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Tam is always looking out for others' well-being. She is very loving, caring and very energetic. She is persistent, doesn't know what quitting means. She is intelligent. And all of that will come on handy once Miss M is here soon. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Tam is very generous and thoughtful, and she sends out lovely cards. - John (bird whisperer)
I lub TamTam, bcoz shes' always positive and always is very thought of others ! - Peter Dawson
Where do I begin? She's funny. She's cute. She's got a great laugh. She's very sweet. She's a great motivator. She's sends out great cards. She likes John Hughes movies. She makes Adam happy. She's Tam Tam. :) - Steven Perez
She is by all accounts an amazing person. I've never met her in real life, yet I have lovely notes from her on my cork board and fridge b/c that's the thoughtful and genuinely kind person she is. I feel beyond lucky to share a name with her. If she needed me to go to California and organize a protection detail for her and the baby, I would do it. For real. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat
All of the above and everything else! - Katy S from iPhone
She sent me cookies, internationally, to encourage an act of creativity I was trying. Delicious. Tam invests in people. So lovely, she. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Beauty and heart. Glenda the Good Witch ;) - Brent Schaus from FFHound!
I like the way Micah explained it. Tam invests in people is so true. A bright light and loving soul. - Janet from FFHound!
How can I find the words to express how much it means to me that you guys care and "get" me? I appreciate every kind word and sentiment. Much love to all of you! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. - Tamara J. B.
Brent, it's on you to give her a big hug from all of us tomorrow. And say hello to baby M while you're at it. :-D - Corinne L

Were You A Spoilt Child?
"You ticked off 14 out of 100 on this list! You weren’t spoilt at all. Your parents refused to buy you everything you asked for, which meant that you had to spend a lot of time at your friends’ houses playing with their toys. But that’s OK; it just meant you didn’t become a materialistic adult." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
LOL I'm only going by the stuff I remember. I think my mom has a different account. - Jessie
Well... I might be from a different era because light-up shoes weren't around when I was a kid. =P - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
Buzzfeed has gotten so stupid. I'm not white according to there very thin measure of white being 30-something middle-class white (with a female bias). This one seemed to have a pretty significant gender bias too. I got a 5. They'd do better focusing on neutral items, and less of them. - Not Me
It feels more like a 'did you have a lot of stuff and were born in the 80's/90's' quiz more than anything. No, I didn't have a Barbie Porsche. She was rocking a 'vette in my day. (And I got that from my cousins as a hand-me-down, which was still awesome.) Half of the stuff I'd check the box for (Dance Dance Revolution, anyone?) were things I purchased with my own money as an adult after or during college. - Jennifer Dittrich
Yeah, they also left off things like music lessons, summer camp, dance lessons, karate, etc. "Spoilt" isn't based solely on the stuff people own. - Jessie
most of this shit is from my late 20s/early 30s...or later. - Big Joe Silence
counting only the things i had as a child in the 70s: "You ticked off 8 out of 100 on this list! You weren’t spoilt at all. Your parents refused to buy you everything you asked for, which meant that you had to spend a lot of time at your friends’ houses playing with their toys. But that’s OK; it just meant you didn’t become a materialistic adult." being piss broke helped a little, of course. - Big Joe Silence
This made me laugh. - Not Me
Do you know where your boss lives?
I have no boss. Mwahahahaaaa! - Jenny H. from Android
Yes. When we started the company, I worked out of their home office for 18 months. - Johnny
I do. Mwahahahaaaa! - Angelo
Level 10. - Mark Trapp
Yes ... He's my dad. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Yes, yes, yes, and yes. I have 4 bosses/jobs. - Not Me
Yes (boss), yes (dean), yes (pres). - Julie Kane from iPhone
yep - Steve C
Yes - Janet
Pretty close? I know the neighborhood, not the actual house. - Jennifer Dittrich
I only know he lives two provinces over. All I need to know. :) - Stephan Planken from iPhone
I know the bar he lives near. - Eric - Watch Me Now from iPhone
One in St. Louis, and the others in Australia. That's as close as I know. And one of the ones in Australia is originally from Chicago. - April Russo
Yup. - Jed from iPhone
Of course I do. She lives with me, after all. - Uli
Yes, and that's mainly because he lives a few doors down from another coworker whose house I've been to. I also knew where my bosses from Iowa (first one), FT Illinois library job, first grad school assistantship, and second State Farm posting lived as I was invited to their houses at some point. I knew where my high school boss lived because it was my dad :) - Katie
Yes, although it's been about a year since I was there so I doubt I could find the place. I know which street (it's like 3 blocks from my street). - Marianne
Yes. He's sleeping next to me. - Anika
in a vague "he lives in that area" kind of way, but other than that, no. - ellbeecee
I know what stop she lives off of, and I know things about her building, but not the actual address. - Meg VMeg
Yes. I've slept at her house and pooped in her toilet and worn her clothes. - Melly
Yep. - Steven Perez
Yep. I am him. - SAM
x__x melly - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Yup. I take her with me everywhere. She even sleeps with my husband. - Mary B: #TeamMonique
It was either wear her clothes or sit in her paddling pool with her husband and kids in just my underwear! - Melly
Yes. - Anne Bouey
No but it's very easy for me to find out. I just don't care to know. :P - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart

When they were playing their little golf/hockey game in the hall this morning, Josiah was encouraging Emily and telling her she was doing a great job of trying. And later Emily thought Josiah was sad (he wasn't) and started patting him on the back asking "You 'kay, Siah?" And then they hugged and kissed and my heart exploded. - Melly
