    I just love being told to fuck off by a cyclist nearly running me over in a crosswalk with a stop sign. So SF.

      Mom has been talking about moving, a bunch of "We buy ugly houses" types have been offering her ~55% of the current Zillow estimate. It's a large lot in a good neighborhood. Sure, it needs work, but it's hardly a teardown. How do you decide where to start?

        Online retailer says they have "the bag you've been waiting for." Um. No. In other news, the sewing machine fits in the folding pet carrier I bought as a travel case for the electric spinner. I've been promised it's legit "personal item" size. We'll see.

          Spinning magazine prominently features "Spinning for Profit" article on the cover. It's about Americans importing western-style knitting yarns spun by women in developing countries. Not sure why I was expecting it to be anything else.

            I still have to talk to the IRS, so after 10 minutes of going through their phone tree and entering personal data, the automated system says they are too busy and hangs up.

              Now I have two hours to kill before the FTB answering service calls me back. Hopefully that works. It's not enough time to go out and do anything useful, but I'm not going to discuss tax returns anywhere but at home in private.

                Americans of Eastern European origin have noticed Trump is Putin's BFF, and many of them are very not happy about it. http://tinyurl.com/ztcvv6c

                  I feel ill from standing (on the now wet floor) with my head upside down inside the oven trying to clean it. My arms are too short. The door doesn't come off without a "Door removal pin kit" from the manufacturer. The manual doesn't give the part number.

                    @jws Widely shared passwords are already broken for different reasons (the authentication method is clueless about shared resources.) It still should be easy to type, which would make it also easy to memorize. If you don't want that, don't use a shared pw

                      E6000 for shoe repair? The sole is coming off my ancient birk house slippers. They don't make these in my size anymore.

                        News flash: if I were to venture into an actual outside body of water, I'd want something that prevented unwanted sun exposure and didn't stick to my figure like a wet garbage bag. Very like a burkini. Even indoors, I'm not thrilled with swimwear options.

                          @mandyd I prefer my variety without the option to mow down dozens of homes on a regular basis. Hurricanes were no fun, but at least you get some kind of warning. Big earthquakes are extremely damaging, but rare. Choose your poison.

                            Why is this? “Whenever a Gujarati or Sikh businessman comes to a [GOP] event, it begins with an appeal to Jesus Christ. While [Dems] are really good at making the outsider feel at home, the Republicans make little or no effort.” http://tinyurl.com/z4lezn9

                              @joanna Spouse always gets some when we go through Chicago on trips. Now I've found some that is only a little sweet, so I don't feel so terrible eating it by the handful. And then I remember why I didn't like popcorn as I get the shells out of my teeth

                                I've never been a huge fan of popcorn, but cover it in sugar and I'm so there.

                                  @mandyd Oh wow. I hope everyone is ok! I'll be out that way in a few weeks and I was wondering if there would be weather to deal with :(

                                      I made a hat that was intended to fit a small child. Good thing there are several older ones also available.

                                        I wrote a professional email to address an issue affecting a schedule and nowhere in it did I use the phrase "fucking asshole cowboy." I want a gold star.
