Hello, my dirty little friends!
Our two cubic yards of potting soil arrived Thursday morning (thank you for the recommendation last year, +Rachel Mello), and we labored mightily filling our shiny new raised beds with it. Then topping off our old raised beds. Then filling any pots, window containers, canvas bags, and spare mason jars we could find.
Then we still had a great big honking mound of fresh potting soil in our driveway.
In conclusion:
PLEASE COME TAKE OUR DIRT!!!
Seriously, folks: if you have been to our house before, feel free to just come by and mooch. If you have not, ping me, and let us arrange a chance for you to get some of that sweet free dirt for yourself. If you have a friend who might have a use for it, feel free to tell them about this.

Sorrow! We let the tray get too dry (we think) and most of the seedlings died. Cleaning out and starting over.

I am pleased to report that the Medford Transcript reporter spelled my name right over half the time.

Big, big thanks to +Ericka Crouse, +Michael Kleber +Meg GT +Meg Muckenhoupt +A Mandible +Molly T  for donating to the cause, and to +P.M. Holcomb for donating, supporting me doing this, and--oh yeah--making  the whole damn thing happen in the first place!  You guys are unreasonably awesome!

Thank you, Google, for forcing your ugly-ass Hangouts redesign on Chat users. I definitely needed more screen real estate dedicated to stylized word balloons in case I forgot the fundamentals of what instant messaging was and needed to be reminded.

Actually, Sebastian, I'm slightly confused.  Do you not have the "Revert to the old chat" button at the bottom of the hangouts list in gmail?

Yesterday I made beef empanadas totally from scratch, and they were pretty damn good. Today I am spending entirely too much time mulling other cool empanada fillings.

I do the vodka thing, too, it's pretty great. 

+Martin Hunter makes great empanadas, and has cool filling ideas. My fav is this corn one he does.

Hey youse guys--

I'm doing the Ride for Food again this year, and I'm planning to do the fifty-mile course, which will be the longest I've ever ridden in a day.

It's--holy crap--coming up in four days. Plz to be checking out my fundraising page. Donate if you can, spread the word if you can't. The funds go to +P.M. Holcomb's awesome organization Food For Free, which has mad exciting new programs right now to help people in the region get enough good food to eat.

Also, Horatio has threatened to barf on my bedroom carpet if I don't raise enough money, and I assure you that that is no treat at all.
https://ride.threesquaresne.org/fundraise?fcid=481722
A message from Horatio: GREETINGS BIPEDS LAST YEAR I GUIDED MY TRAINED BIPED TO A GLORIOUS VICTORY IN THE "RIDE FOR FOOD." MANY OF YOU HAD THE HONOR OF ASSISTING ME IN THIS PROJECT THROUGH YOUR DONATIONS AND CHIN-SKRITCHES. THOUGH

You can do 50 miles. However, you cannot prevent a determined dog from vomiting on your carpet.

Does anyone know of bars or similar venues that will be showing the first GOP debate on Thursday night?

I tried to be good and not stop for a mocha on Boston Ave, but I'm just not very Tamper-resistant.

It looks a lot better when it's 15 degrees out and you have to wait 20 minutes for a bus.

We ordered delivery for 8PM through Foodler. At 8:30 we started trying to contact them. They weren't answering their phone, so we left several voicemails. At 9, Foodler said the food was on its way. At 9:30, Foodler offered us a full refund. It's now been an hour and three quarters since Sono's promised delivery time, and we haven't heard a peep from then yet.
