    @cgiffard When you have to wear a bra even bumming around at home, something comfortable is a big deal. I've had several purchased ones, but none fit now. I should have done this before. Took experimenting, and having the right fabric, but wasn't difficult

      I just made an "I Don't Wanna" bra (also known as a leisure bra) from an old swimsuit pattern and leftover knit pant fabric. This changes everything. (Polartec Power Stretch: fleece on the inside, durable on the outside, wicking, 4-way stretch.)

        Don't understand the words, but the activity next door is pretty universal. The microwave is beeping, the baby is crying, siblings and cousins playing a game that mostly involves throwing things at each other (they are all between 5 & 7.) Everything normal

          @martinicat I just read the press conference transcript. According to him, Brexit was a great idea because the people spoke and, didn't you know, he predicted it. Oh, and Remain lost because Obama said nice things about it. Also, he owns great hotels.

            Trump gets off an airplane in the UK and announces how thrilled he is that "they took their country back." In Scotland, where every single district voted Remain in huge numbers. What an idiot. http://mashable.com/2016/06/24/trump-tweet-brexit/#1gswCQKHfsqB

              @jws @cgiffard I'm using the inspector in safari, so no fancy tools. I haven't yet figured out all the things it can show me.

                @jws @cgiffard I found part of the problem, wp silently sticks p all over the place. This wasn't supposed to be inside a p, but it is. So I had to account for that. But now that I got the admin to create a style sheet for my stuff, life is so much better.

                  OMG now I have my own stylesheet! It's everything I thought it would be. No more overriding stuff with awful inline css.

                    Hilton data-mangling figured out I stayed at an SFO airport hotel, and sent spam encouraging a repeat vacation stay to see San Francisco. Sadly, it can't tell that I live in San Francisco. It is highly unlikely I was there because I was on vacation.

                      Web nerds: if I can have my own <style> block on my page to override a global stylesheet, why can I change the style of my dt/dl but not img? It's being ignored, and only putting style= in every single img does anything.

                        FTB: There was a problem with the direct deposit. In April. Me: Why wasn't I notified? FTB: Something is odd with your address. Me: That wouldn't make it undeliverable. FTB: Ummm Me: Why wouldn't anyone tell me anything when I called 2 weeks ago? FTB: Ummm

                          The reporting from the House floor tonight is astounding. John Lewis is still leading the way, and he's not afraid of anything.

                            Remember how FTB said I had to wait until the last possible day to ask about our state tax refund, because they have until then to get it to me? That was yesterday. Guess what isn't in my bank account. Not thrilled at the prospect of sitting on the phone.

                              It's really alarming how many times I've called Covered California or Blue Shield about a mysterious change to our accounts, only to be told nobody knows who did it or why.

                                Can I get a degree in Yelling At Insurance Companies? Would that help me get a job? Because I sure do a lot of it. On the phone now with both Covered CA and Blue Shield, because talking to them individually was getting different information.

                                    Battery is kaput on my Pebble again, after a year. I'm not happy with it for several reasons, but I don't know what else out there would actually work as a pendant.

                                      Auto maintaining all the things. Next up: does the super glue still work?

                                        Waiting around the Honda dealership for the car to be ready. They obviously find it exceedingly important that everyone in the building be able to hear the tv.

                                          Flight changed, bit more expensive but no fee. The agent was very helpful, I'm sure it had nothing to do with two gold elites on the itinerary. In any case, grateful for the (rare these days) discretionary favor. When I tried after dad died, I got nowhere.
