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

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.)

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

"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."

The problem with impulse-buys at Costco is I now have two and a half pounds of cookies...

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
