Ok, needle in a haystack time -- hoping for help. About a year ago I read a wonderfully written blog post by a mom about why one shouldn't use the word "retarded." It is not the post on the herding cats blog that got so much attention, though it makes similar points. I feel it is a superior essay, because it explains the effect that hearing "retard" used as a negative can have on a kid with a developmental disorder, who lacks the cognitive ability to distinguish between the term used in abstract and the term used to apply to her. Did anyone else read this post or have any idea how to find it? I've used my google-foo to no avail.

Anyone know off the top of your head how to stop gmail from popping out the compose window? The last thing I want when writing a message is the distraction of unread/incoming messages.

I miss the pretty girl Ultron. Pretty girls destroying the world seems more reasonable and forward-thinking somehow.

Makes a lot more sense to me than trying to save all the boys. ;)

prozeugma: a series of clauses in which the verb employed in the first is elided (and thus implied) in the others.

Just a reminder for all of my friends who will be in Atlanta this weekend paying homage to the mighty Dragon. I run a game there called Dark ConFrontation. You can find me on the second floor of the Hilton. It is an awesome game that's been running for almost twenty years. Limited continuity so you can jump right in.

Hope to see you there!

advice request of the day: can anyone recommend a book (or a resource) on money management for couples -- but I want one that doesn't assume that we are 1) married, 2) joining all our accounts, nor 3) that we match gender stereotypes about spending.

So this was posted several months ago, but in case you still need an answer:  Suze Orman is another good source for financial planning advice.

Rereading the Aubrey/Maturin series by Patrick O'brian always makes me wish I could have seen those beautiful tall ships in action. Of course, it also reminds me how very, very lucky we are to be alive in the time of modern medicine.

(Sorry to respond to a year old post)

I just recently finished rereading the Aubrey / Maturin series and have been searching for another series to start. I've loved the series and have read the Hornblower books but now I'm searching for a new series to start in on.

Any suggestions?
