Give boys chance to participate! Maybe it's a good opportunity to develop their femme fashio taste. And make their own gifts for their girlfriends!

"Costco customers could save an average of $5,900 on their mortgages."

Given that it's an average, the "could" makes this a pretty useless statement.

Let me fix that:

"Costco customers could, but don't, save an average of $5,900 on their mortgages."

"Insert sign about saving money here!"

Truth in advertising: "Of those not switching their car insurance to GEICO, it was because GEICO, on average, was more expensive than their current car insurance."

Taking recommendations on how to visually indicate completion to a game chunk - not just success, but completing the whole so Rolly can keep moving on, as in the clip below. (It's a very old video of my game, but enough to get the idea across.)

Me:  "Glad we're not Canadian!"

Got a conference announcement today, for one of those delightfully small and awesome conferences.  I'll bet the sender of the announcement received "I'm at #AERA15" auto-responses from everyone on the list, and is cursing his timing =D

In the curiously penetrative bathroom light in our hotel room, I have just realized that I have incredibly asymmetric smile wrinkles!  Huh.

Good thing I think wrinkles are cool =D

Pat Thompson and Terry Pratchett have a least one thing in common:  they both love footnoting!  (Although, to be fair, I haven't seen Pat put a footnote within a footnote yet...)

Seems like a recursive footnote would be the easiest way to do that (without breaking the system), +Karl Kosko

By now I'd be down to approximately 1.9 lbs of cookies. It's a problem that takes care of itself.

+Jordan Thevenow-Harrison and I have fallen in love with baked oatmeal for breakfast - which would astonish my family no end, given my traditional anti-oatmeal stance...  

ANYWAY:  I make something like this on Saturday, and we reheat the leftovers for Sunday - pouring delicious yogurt over it both times:  http://www.onceuponachef.com/2014/03/amish-style-baked-oatmeal-with-apples-raisins-walnuts.html

Bonus:  any kind of fresh or frozen fruit can go into the bottom, and any kind of nuts you have hanging around can get mixed in - so it's pretty much just oatmeal, delicious random ingredients, maybe a little sweetener, and some eggy-milk.  BAM.  
Transform ordinary oatmeal into something special: combine it with fruit, nuts and a lightly sweetened custard and bake it in the oven. (TESTED & PERFECTED RECIPE)

True. I guess this isn't oatmeal, cause I don't do that gross boiling thing at all :p
