This one time I started my day by arguing about feminism with white dudes who identify as "equalitarians." #shouldhaveknownbetter #cantrecommend

We put on a "Women's History Month" breakfast this morning at work, and had an invited speaker. This speaker happened to be both female and a person of color, so she semi-wryly made a joke during her talk about how Black History Month has the shortest number of months of all the months. After the event was over, and I was back at my desk, I was blessed with having to listen to several of my male co-workers commenting on the speaker's comment and how there's no "Men's History Month". 

So, apparently they still don't get it. It reminds me of that cartoon with the guy with the full glass and the guy with the half glass.

St. Patrick's Day isn't about being Irish, it's about being an American with Irish heritage. I didn't see you boycott St. Valentine's when you painted everything pink. Get off your high horse and get the stick out of your ass. If you were half as concerned about the stereotypes being reinforced, with much more vigor, against nonwhite racial and sexual minorities as you are about pissing on this, the world would be better overnight. Fuck you, self righteous white people. #thatisall

Are you looking for solutions, or comfort?

There may not be a more important question to ask someone who's not feeling his or her best. Offering solutions, my natural response, can come across as overbearing or manipulative when comfort is wanted. Conversely, comfort can seem distant or shallow to someone looking for solutions.

I have, and
I agree, if we dissociate it from gender.

I'm not sure which is more impressive: the fact that the Archer series creators went through so much trouble to create such an elaborate Easter egg or th

It'd be a hell of a thing if your name was Michael PastryChef.

Looks like my sister has taken on another awesome firefighter meets art project, transforming decommissioned hose into this. Evidently the first three are already sold, but I think she's only made one or two. ;)

(That's our state flag, for those not familiar.)

Evidently she's sold 9 of them just to firefighters she works with. That will certainly help fund her enrollment in design school.

I know there are a lot of very talented artists and designers in my circles who could do something wonderful here. If you're one of those people and can't do it, could you share it with your peers?
 
Hey people - Strange one but a very important one for me.

My daughter is disabled and has recently been given splints to help her start to walk. She's never been able to wear shoes other then ones given to her to help her feet, and they have been very unfeminine huge boots. 

So I am calling on the community to see if someone more skilled could design something or make some vinyl graphics just to make them more girly for her. You can help just by sharing the post and hopefully someone that can help will see it.

We went through that as well, and it's a challenge! Luckily we at least had the colored pads that +Kara T.​ mentioned. And we wouldn't swing the special shoes since insurance didn't cover the braces, so we used crocks. Luckily it was right in the middle of that craze, so of worked well, but that's something to consider.

Hang in there...you aren't alone!

Story
Tagline
Came down on a bottle rocket, found my heart right where I locked it
Introduction
Me: An incognito super nerd, with light interest in applied technology, and more substantive interest in things like the technical aspects of pastry, miniatures based wargaming, video games, philosophy, culture and art. 

Work: Food is my profession, so I do my best to keep up to date on all of its myriad aspects, including dietetics, nutrition, politics, and, of course, preparation. If I had a specialty, it would be showpiece work, but, I try to keep myself sharp all around. My current career trend is more in management than production, which is going well and giving me significantly more growth potential. 

Fun: Philosophy, that is to say critical thinking, not that thing people say when they mean idle pontification, is my passion, and for what I was, allegedly, trained. I analyze things because I care about them, which also includes people. I've noticed they don't care for that. 

Theme Parks, Games, and the Outdoors are my innocent fun, if I were to allow myself that. ;)

Also: I like dudes. Like, like dudes.

Everyone I have encountered at Larry & Sons has been extremely helpful and professional, from Heather and Nathan in the office, to Rich and John who came on site to help me with several concerns in an old, complex multi-unit property. The technicians were efficient, personable, and professional, leaving me with the greatest confidence in not only their abilities, but the company as a whole. As a result, Larry & Sons is the ONLY plumber I'll be using in Hagerstown after three years of fly-by-night service and sketchy runarounds from other companies.
