Thanks to +Julia M Usher and 3 days of obsessive YouTube-watching, my cookies have gained +2 Awesomeness.  ;)  I haven't maxed my skill, though - still having trouble with consistency, but practice makes perfect!

(The leaf came out really well, I was proud.)

Lucinda- I had the same idea of doing batch cooking, but weekly and having shared meal plus take-home containers so people only have to make one dish, but a lot of it. Everyone gets variety, nobody has to cook five different things. I might try to get it going. Will keep folks posted on how it turns out. Hopefully I can find a group of people not with allergies, paleo, other things. I like dairy, nuts, and pasta LOL

Hey +Lucinda Reilly and +Matthew Reilly !! Get yon wee baby giant started early!  :D

I'm doing French, Italian, and Dutch (and Spanish to keep my fluency up), although I gave up on German because declensions are the devil's tool.  - _ -  Dutch is so much easier.  And TURKISH IS COMING, EEEEEE!!!  #duolingo is awesomesauce, plug plug plug.  ;)

It is jarring when a beloved celebrity dies of something you could possibly die of yourself—when all of a sudden everyone is talking about the illness you have, the one that they usually don’t want to talk about at all. The experience you live with every day is, in an...

In December 2014, Saks Fifth Avenue responded to a sex discrimination lawsuit filed by Leyth O. Jamal, a former employee at a Saks store in Texas who claims she was harassed, then fired, for being a trans woman. Saks could have fought Jamal’s suit by insisting that her claims of...

Oh man. Playing WoW again, and the guild did some old-world raids for kicks last night. And by "the guild" I mean "the 4 of us who were on." Finally beat Arthas, tee hee. Dendara's giving us detailed "here is where to run when [x] happens," and then we simply waste the bosses in like 10 seconds.  ^_^

Got me reminiscing, though. They have Molten Core back up to a lvl 100 40-man raid for the 10th anniversary, and there's 3-hour queues, and people getting kicked for poor gear and zero knowledge.. good times. Them kids today have no idea what raiding was like Back In The Day™, when you had to coordinate with 39 other people. 25-man raids?  Please.

With that in mind, this will never stop being hilarious:

Yeah, I may be toting this along to OmegaCon, although with everything else on the menu, I may let someone else do the actual cooking. As official NomSweet diva, I'll wave my hand and have a minion do the dirty work.

We did, twice now.  No luck.  ;)  Can't imagine why, it's like the odds are astronomical or something!

This is patently ridiculous. Crime is at an all-time low, can we please bring back them Good Old Days of neighborhood beat cops getting kittens out of trees and shaking fingers at Halloween TPers?  Please?  Plzkthx? Maybe stop shooting unarmed people? Maybe stop arresting newspeople and turning your city into a no-fly zone, or at least stop doing things that cause newspeople to record you?  :P This is not the 'MURRICA I want to live in.

The most striking photographs from Ferguson, Missouri, aren’t of Saturday’s demonstrations or Sunday night’s riots; they’re of the police. Image after image shows officers clad in Kevlar vests, helmets, and camouflage, armed with pistols, shotguns, automatic rifles, and tear gas. In one photo, protesters stand toe-to-toe with baton-wielding riot police,...

I think our house is gonna get broke into today.  When J and I got home at like 9:30ish, there was a car sitting next to the house with some dude in it, and it had apparently been there for a while. The lads set off all the car alarms at once, and apparently the guy just started honking his horn too, which is weird. I finally convinced them to just simply call the freakin' police if they weren't going to walk up and knock on his window, and 10 seconds later he drove off, which means he was listening to the police scanner.

Then this morning, we see the car half a block away.

So hey +Lucinda Reilly +Matthew Reilly , what's protocol for this?  Should we call la polizia again?  We got lots of pics of the car, so if we come home to destruction, at least we have a lead.  ;)


eta: In a way, I almost hope they take the iPad, cuz I'll be able to track them.  muahahahahahahaaaa!

House unbroken into, and the car hasn't been back. If we do see him again (and we got lots of pics of car & plates), we'll try your idea. We had a friend drive by around 1ish, and he said the sign we saw on the back window that looked like a Baby on Board actually says Show Me Your Tits, so clearly this erstwhile creeper is a class act.  ;)  We're also changing the wifi password, it could have been something as simple as a piggybacker.  THE DRAMA, IT NEVER ENDS!
