If your Thanksgiving gets tense, smooth things over with a safer topic, like how the stuffing isn't as good as when Grandma made it.

"We are staying right now in a pretty Airbnb place in Valencia and are kind of sad to leave this place with an incredible view. So I started daydreaming and thinking about in what Airbnb we should stay next. So I did some research and these are the current place I would love to stay at (assuming I could ever afford it)" - Mark H from Bookmarklet

Dear WWweb, DO NOT ever ever ever ever ever ever eVEr EVER auto-play sound in my presence. Ever.

The weeping faces was a nice fairy tale touch.
They're doing a good job with that castle. The way he keeps warning Adalind not to do things and she does them and suffers the enchantment anyway is so typical of fairy tales. - Spidra Webster
She likes cheese. She likes toast. She will not even try grilled cheese sandwiches. It’s the same thing! I don’t get it.
I was the same way. Still not a big fan of grilled cheese by itself - there needs to be something else in there, like meat or tomato or veggies. Quesadillas, though? Love those. - Corinne L
Texture mixing issue, perhaps? - Michael W. May from Android
Maybe in my case, MWM. I also hate American cheese, which is often the go-to in grilled cheese & on burgers. Give me real cheese, dammit! None of this processed cheese food crap! But enough about me...back to baby girl. Maybe she'd go for them with a little bit of deli meat inside? - Corinne L
I used to be the same. Got around it by grilling cheese on a ceramic plate, then using toast to scoop it up - Mo Kargas

"Scientists have just reported the first major mechanical reason our brains need to sleep — certain cleaning mechanisms in the brain work better when we shut the brain down. Just like how dump trucks take to the city streets during the pre-dawn hours because there's less traffic, our brain's cleaners also work best when there's less going on." - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet

That awkward moment when you realize your hotel microwave is actually a safe. #OatmealNotGoingAnywhere
Sigh. - sglassme
Perhaps better than microwaving a couple hundred bucks you won at the tables.... #hotmoney - WarLord
If they hadn't put it on top of the fridge, that mistake would be less common - ellbeecee from Android
Shut your sigh-hole, glassmeyer!! It's right on top of the fridge! why would you put a microwave shaped safe on top of a fridge???? - Sarah G.
To store valuables in. - sglassme
The better question is: why you are eating oatmeal for dinner? The only acceptable oatmeal is steel cut, and you probably aren't making that in a microwave. Plus, you could have probably run a pot of water through the coffee pot to heat to make oatmeal. - sglassme
Sigh. - sglassme

Hi my name is sarah and I'm the last person in the world to discover that chipotle guacamole is delicious. AMA,
... not quite the last. - RepoRat
I LOVE the guac at the Chipotle nearest me. Is so delicious. Sometimes we go to other chipotles and it does not quite live up and then I am extra sad. - Hedgehog
Now I'm confused. I read that as "guacamole flavored with chipotle," not "the guacamole you buy at Chipotle's." Clarification? - Walt Crawford
I read it that way too, Walt. - bentley
Either way it is a win. - Corinne L
Oh, I read it as the store-- but I see where it could be the ingredient. Tells you the impact our store has had on my taste buds - Hedgehog

That makes no sense. Why would it not fly? - April Russo
I just meant my fam would know there's no way I went back to the Congregation. And to be clear, by "opting out of xmas" what I mean is not traveling to see either branch of the fam for the holidays, and instead spending it quietly on my own however I choose, which is a big deal for me that I've been trying to pull off for like 10 years. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
Good for you. I've done the opt-out a few times and it has been really nice. Last year I spent Christmas day doing some writing, then went to see American Hustle at the theatre. - Corinne L

Karl Stefanovic's sexism experiment: Today presenter wears same suit for a year
"Angered by the sexism he saw being heaped upon his female colleagues – and attempts to downplay it – Karl Stefanovic decided to conduct an experiment. He wore the same blue suit on air, two days in a row. Then three. A month ticked by without a ripple. Now, a full year has passed – and he is still wearing the same cheap Burberry knock-off, every morning, on Channel Nine's Today program." - Mark H from Bookmarklet
"Not a single audience member has asked about it, he says. Fashion commentators and other media also seem oblivious.

"He has big hair, glammed-out fingernails, and repeats the word "brands" like he's a verbally incontinent MBA. Shingy, in other words, is what a Wharton grad dressed up as an 80s rocker looks and sounds like. But, as Andrew Marantz of the New Yorker shows, he's actually a little more Dada than that." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
[New Yorker:] " Next, Shingy stopped by the office of Erika Nardini, the chief marketing officer of AOL Advertising, and handed her an iPad Mini. “Wanted to show you a little brain fart I had on the plane,” he said. It was a cartoon he had drawn of a bear wearing zebra-print pants and a shirt covered in ones and zeros. “Love it, love it, love it,” Nardini said. “I’m thinking of the bears more as a metaphor.” “A thousand per cent,” Shingy said." - Andrew C (✔)

Trying to catch up on Sleepy Hollow. Watched the weeping woman episode a little while ago, now watching the Wendigo episode. Something gives me the feeling that the writers have been watching the first season of Supernatural.
I haven't seen Supernatural but I thought it was a pretty clear attempt to keep Grimm from being completely Eurocentric in its baddies and thus likely in its casting. - Spidra Webster
i've noticed Supernatural/Sleepy Hollow commonalities since the beginning. - holly #ravingfangirl
Yeah, I've always felt commonalities between the two (and there are some commonalities between Supernatural & Grimm, as well), but these two episodes (haven't watched the two most recent episodes yet) are pulling a lot from two Supernatural episodes. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
I agree. But I've been rewatching Supernatural so I notice it even more. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
