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

Our department put up a bulletin board for voting day, encouraging people to think about and write on the board how they were going to vote / get to the polls. Mostly it's a lot of "getting up early before class!" "driving 2 hours to my hometown!" "Absentee!" but one pe...

Re: A Brief History of Brontoforumus

I would like to take this moment to interrupt, and note that over the last nearly 20 years of my life, this community (by which I mostly mean the IRC channel, but I swirl both together in my head, like a cheesecake brownie) has been friends and family to me. When I needed help, I was helped. When I ...

Re: A Holiday Appears!

Happy Halloween!

I made pumpkin cookies, and brought them to work with pumpkin chai! And organic candy corn!

It's candy and dress-up day! Yaaaaay!

Highly paid professionals who provide images as MS Word documents.

I had a dream last night where in addition to whatever else was happening, Mister Rogers was there. Just being really nice and understanding to everyone.

Re: A Brief History of Brontoforumus

I've been around since like day 3 of the IRC channel, and I still only get half the jokes. The key is to guess when it's safe to smile and nod.

Re: HOW WAS YOUR DAY

I was in an antique shop with my mom today, and in a jumble of overturned wooden things I recognized a vintage hat block!! Marked down to $22. I'd been looking at them online a while ago, so i knew one with the brim would cost ~$150 online. It's even my head size!

Re: HOW WAS YOUR DAY

Our ragey downstairs neighbour who enjoys pounding walls etc. to vent his spleen is having a pound/stomp wall war with some other neighbour adjacent to or below him and it's fucking hilarious. Mongrel, was just listening to this and it made me think of your housing situation. https://www.youtube.co...

Re: In the Land of Wonderful Dreams

I was having a pretty bad dream last night, the only part I can remember clearly is that I really needed to escape, but in front of the car kept appearing old ladies in wheelchairs and kids on bikes. Which is a pretty mean trick.

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 ...

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?

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.)
