If I went for the gummy instead of the gin, I would have been passed out a hella lot sooner, so I’m sticking with drinking for now. (Plus, the gummy is my last.) Read more

For what it’s worth, sending healing thoughts his way. I hope he gets better and that we somehow all come out of this without having to resort to the mob portion (I’m not holding my breath, though).

At last Friday’s Virtual Happy Hour with my friends, I taught myself how to make Bee’s Knees cocktails (Gin+Honey Simple Syrup+Lemon Juice) and it got messy. I woke up Saturday and the counter was sticky with honey simple syrup and lemon juice and I can’t find the spare box of Samoas that I *swear* I had left over for Read more

Paired with a nice toilet wine it’s [chef’s kiss].

I feel super lucky that my parents have chickens so I can go up to their house (about 40 minutes away) and get eggs without any contact with anyone if needed. Taking care of chickens is super annoying and the birds are super dumb, but it’s handy to have eggs!

Yea, if I drink during work (or “snack”), I would lose my license and my job. For those of us without addictions, it shouldn’t be hard to be sober for 8 hours at a time.

I’m with you on this one. She could just have the title “part owner” in order to drum up interest or back the cost or whatever. I also assume that while she’s ridic rich, she has other staff that she’s paying or concert staff that she’s still paying or some other shit like that. Maybe she’s not liquid. I’m not going Read more

I’m so glad I have a trained chef in the family and a bunch of family members who are awesome cooks so I can call them. I had to call my brother in law (the chef) to ask if brown garlic was normal (it wasn’t soft and was from a hippie farm so we went with it was just a varietal). That question was from my making Read more

I always think of the Julia Child/Martha Stewart Croquembouche video when I look at my food versus the pretty posted stuff. Martha’s final dessert is a tall, beautiful tree of pastry. Julia’s is more of a lump but you know it tastes as good as the pretty one.  Read more

Dafuq? A coworker would do that? I’ve had a few conference calls with a client this week and her kids are always yelling or babbling in the background. It is what it is, it doesn’t affect our work at all so who cares? At most I feel bad that she’s having to handle that as well as work (her husband is essential so he’s Read more

I’m a woman and I just cut my nails short last night so I can clean them better during hand washing... And by the end of this, I’ll probably have a Joe Exotic homemade haircut. Read more

Bonus is that she’s adopted so it’s nature v nurture watching as well as seeing how she will physically change (fingers crossed that her birth parents have much better eyesight than my fam). It’s all so fascinating and she’s such a pip! Read more

I love the term nibling! My almost-3-year-old niece figured out how to call me today (from the landline, so no pic) without her parents’ knowledge. I’m so curious to watch her grow up! I pointed out a window and said "look at the red bird!" and she responded "yes, a cardinal!" (or at least her version of that Read more

That both surprises me and doesn’t. I would think people would have to at least wear masks, but then for a non-surgical birth, maybe it’s not as important. Read more

I love watching procedurals and know that they’re not real life, but the obvious violation of rights sometimes makes me want to send a note to the writing staff that just says “really?” On SVU, the teams is CONSTANTLY disclosing personal information to strangers “well we’re asking cos Special Guest Star was raped and Read more

I love SVU and for a bit thought Meloni was good looking enough, but then I started listening to the pod These Are Their Stories (L&O recaps/review—really funny) and they made me realise just what an ass Stabler was and now I can’t totally get behind Meloni as a sex symbol because his character ruined it for me.

Until your comment, I had also read that as Milk and while I didn’t understand it, but went with it anyhow. [facepalm]

I saw someone mention in another thread about this that one possible reason is that birthing partners would need all the protective gear that is currently scarce for medical professionals who are dire need of it (masks, protective clothing). I’ve not given birth nor have I attended any so I have no idea if the PPE Read more
