My dad has had this one up in his workshop since before I can remember.
We have a toddler and a new baby, so our laundry is running every day now. Until you can put poopy onesies in the dishwasher, I’m sticking with the washing machine.
I would feel very uncomfortable if someone served an entire ham that had been microwaved instead of baked in the cooker. It just... seems so unhealthy.
My enormous colander, about 3ft in diameter. We found it secondhand and assume it must have come from a resturant. I love it dearly, even though it’s so big, it’s almost useless. It lives on top of the wall cupboard because it won’t fit in the pan drawer, and vastly overshadows the sink. We mostly use it as a giant… Read more
My son and his close friend, both age 4, have a scheduled “child conference” every Friday to help them cope with closure of play group and nursery. They both wander on and off camera, usually to gather toys to show each other. There is heavy use of those random face filters. At some point, one of them will go hide in… Read more
I’m due with Goober II: The Regoobering in 3 weeks. The original Goober is almost 4, old enough to meaningfully engage in discussions about what the future will be like. We’ve been keeping him involved in choosing a name (we’re still stuck on that), which he says he’s taking very seriously - this week’s name choice is… Read more
Here’s hoping then that the new adaptation will include all of ‘The Meek Shall Inherit’, the most blatently Faustian song in the show. As much as I love the 1986 film, it chops out the middle and end verses, where Seymour wrestles with his conscience (“I sign these contracts, that means I’m willing to keep on doing… Read more
My worst roommate wasn’t bad to live with, the problem was how she left. She went to a festival weekend a few hundred miles away. After a few days without seeing her, I got a phone call saying she has fallen in love with one of the musicians she’d met, and she was immediately dropping out of university and our shared… Read more
So Jupiter is the social media planet... if you let BS spewing assholes get too close it’s bad for everyone?
I’m actually excited about this, the cast looks amazing. I have to admit what nailed it for me was ‘Kokomo’, contrasted against the straight-laced military when they could have just gone for a montage of the biggest eye-catching fails.
It sounds shallow, but yes bring a man-bag and at least a book. When my nephew was born, neither mum or dad fully understood how long labour can actually take. Dad caught hell for saying on facebook that the waiting about was getting boring - not well appreciated by his wife or her entire family and friends.
An empty bag is great - my advice is bring two. One for any hospital freebies, and a plastic one for any manky laundry! Even if you’re not staying overnight, you can expect sweat, blood and leaky boobs in short order. Your body will awash be a torrent of nerves and hormones; you might even experience what I did - a… Read more
This is a lovely idea and I wish it weren’t completely against the rules here in the UK. A person can go directly to an approved destination - one hour of exercise, necessary groceries, medical care, key work etc - and recently revamped guidelines bluntly say not to use this as an excuse to stop and have a picnic or… Read more
I used to work in a small 50s nostalgia diner, that eventually got shut down. The owner-manager only hired highschool teens and college-freshmen - no-one older than 19 - because we were all too inexperienced to realise how dire the hygene was and that she would blatently cheat us out of tips and wages.
Among the… Read more
I hate my “smart” cooker. It has a glass induction top that spreads heat across the whole surface no matter which hob is on. Instead of knobs, it has touch buttons that are right next to the heating coils so they get just as hot. You have to press them as fast as possible while trying not to get burned, and you can’t… Read more
