I bought a silicone mat for forming fondant lace, that I've been too scared to try. If I get it to work, I don't think it would be tooooo much fondant (and if it is, it could be easily peeled off the rest of the icing).

Re: Oh those pet peeves

My workplace is pretty good about reasonable accomodations. But my office is also in a school so if a pack of undergrads dipped in Axe (or whatever the kids wear now) wander in there's nothing much to be done. It really doesn't come up much, though. The last smelly-person moved out of my office to a...

Re: Oh those pet peeves

I've never heard anyone refer to a scent free or free scent environment, though I suppose any public space rotates between the two. I have mentally filed people wearing colognes you can smell several feet away in the same category of inconsiderate nuisance as people who blare their car music so you ...

I just googled that, and no, I am not enough of a hero. Maybe I'll get some kind of essential oil freshener for my office that doesn't set off my allergies.

Re: Oh those pet peeves

Office smells.

What do you do about office smells? You have to work there, you can't escape. But one coworker insists on eating kimchi at her desk, another wears a ton of perfume that sets off your allergies, or else reeks of BO. What can you do?

Re: Weather

Highs approaching 90 forecast for the next week. This is Michigan, you guys. Michigan in September.

I hope we get an autumn instead of just mid-summer straight into winter.

Re: The Shittiest Watercooler/Campfire/TED Stage Ever

What the actual fuck. Still staring open-mouthed at your story, Def.

I once had a customer at GameStop freak out and scribble the $6.66 off her receipt, but yours takes the satan-defying cake. (We laughed in her face and she was offended. We couldn't help it.)

Re: The Shittiest Watercooler/Campfire/TED Stage Ever

My most ridiculous work experiences came from my five years at GameStop. I had great bosses and co workers, but I worked in a mall store and got that kind of customer base. The best/worst one was the time I was minding my own business stocking GBA games, when this dudebro strolled in. He slowly lowe...

Re: A take so hot I think I got singed reading it.

Just because something is old and white doesn't mean it's obsolete. Look at Shakespeare. Look at me.


Too many hot takes in that article. Friday's right, this is just some bitter pile of venom who hates her feminist daughter and anyone who won't eat deviled eggs.

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior III: you mean they made a sequel to that one game with all the instant death monsters?

Can I just say that I covet that blindfold super bad I could make that happen. Unless you happen to be an old friend in disguise though, not for free. But if several people wanted one, it would be cheaper to make, though the eyes would take the same amount of effort. I've been thinking of making my...

Re: Weather

After a week of nice weather, it's now 80 (feels like 89) at 9:00 am, going on 95. I don't have air conditioning, it's really hard to sleep when it's 95 inside. Less impressive than Thad but this is _Michigan_.

Re: Oh those pet peeves

I'm pretty bad with names in general and tend to use associated terms to refer to things instead of the proper names. But recently I've picked up the habit of calling legal sized sheets 11x17s even though that is an existing different size of paper, just because our big printer broke years ago and ...

Re: Tabletop & Board Games

I just got back from Origins Game Fair, and picked up a few new games. One that blew my mind was this one: https://lumoamuzo.com/products/preorder-larklamp-magic-lantern-game-system-02-dec-2017 It uses a lantern to project light onto the tabletop, forming a changeable board.
