LOL, the type of response one gets for posting how to meet people on a food board:

Might I suggest the meat department of your local supermarket... it's best to find the largest examples of kielbasa, bologna or other such encased meats.... Walking up to what you would consider an attractive woman you should present said encased meat to them and ask..."What do you think of my sausage?" or "What would you do with this?" are both sure-fire ways of breaking the ice.

The more crude way to approach these potential dates is in the produce section where you can be busy looking at pears and apples and the like.....then when an attractive young lady you find appealing approaches the musk or honey dew melons..... you should make douple entendres as to the size/shape/ firmness of said melons.... this will surely result in.....something....... restraining order perhaps.....but it will get a response.
Saria, I've never had anything like that! They sound like they'd be really great.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
You know, the fact that we got 25 points on our health inspection just proves my point about the stupid trivial **** that goes into this stuff and how people just have no clue about how they work. I work in a really clean kitchen, probably the cleanest, tidiest one I've ever worked in, but we need a re-evaluation and are waiting for them to drop by again now that we've addressed all the points so we can get our A again.
Ugh, this comment is amazing all around, but especially the part about the difference between motherhood and fatherhood is something I see so much (ahem, STFU Parents):

I wasn’t even there when it finally happened: right over the bars of his scooter, feet in the air and face cheese-gratered on the asphalt of the big hill, the one that I ran down with them and encouraged them to go down as fast and they felt they could, as long as their helmets were tight and their brakes worked. I told the other parents, “I love this hill, because if they **** up, they’ll bleed but they won’t die.”

And he did. He bled, he scabbed, and he healed, and I said, “that’s why we wear helmets, buddy.”

The world is a scary place, and I don’t know how this story turns out because it doesn’t end with one fall. The world is a scary place, and anything I do as a parent could go badly for them, including nothing. The choice I make, that I keep making, is to encourage them to take risks, to learn from taking risks, because I think the odds are that will work out better for them in the long run. But there are no guarantees. The risks I encourage them to take could kill them. Or they could get run over by a bus or hit by a lightning. The world is a scary place.

One thing I know is that as much as I try to be a parent, I’m a dad, and the social construct of “dad” is that I can look at another parent and say, “I love this hill because if they **** up they’ll bleed but they won’t die,” and the look on my face says, “no comment is permitted. If you don’t like it call child protective services.” (And, because I’m me, that’s what I mean, too.)

Folks don’t react the same to that coming from a mom.

I know that the piece (which is great) is not really about conscious risk-taking, but when I read it, that’s what readily came to mind.

The other thing that comes to mind is that societal attitudes towards motherhood and fatherhood are kind of like the difference between defined-benefit and defined-contribution retirement plans in that fathers are held, at most, to be responsible to their children, while mothers are held to be responsible for, absorbing all the risk and responsible for the outcome. That’s unreasonable and unrealistic, and it undergirds so much of the culture of mother-surveillance.

Apparently I pulled a muscle in my back. I say apparently because there was no pain at the time of the incident however, it's been getting steadily worse over the past week.

I've tried heat and Advil. Hot showers and gentle stretching. Nothing. I'm going to have to call the Dr tomorrow.

I'm mad beacuse I don't want this to slow down my C25K training. And I'm shocked at myself for being this gung-ho. Last year if I had pulled a muscle and couldn't exercise my feelings would not have been hurt and I would have insisted to anyone that would listen that ice cream was really the only cure.
My friend placed 8th for women in the Pittsburgh marathon, and the first PA woman. I knew she was good, but I didn't realize she was *that* good. Wow!

Deenie, that's the saddest little picture of a cardboard box person I've never seen. He/She needs a hug.

I ate cajun fries and beer battered onion rings for lunch, then I had coconut cream pie a little while later and at least I won't need to eat dinner tonight after that.

Calvin was home alone ALL day and didn't tear anything up. I'm constantly amazed when I come in and he's not done anything bad, but I'm pretty sure he's just saving it up for one SUPER BAD day.

Spent the day with my neighbor and her 84 year old mom and I had the. best. time. They're awesome. I can't thank them enough for keeping me company. And they gave me some homemade pimento cheese. Score!

I googled Matt Lanter because apparently he was a suggestion for Finnick, and ooh, he's niiiiiice, but I see more of a Gale than a Finnick there.

I can see why Trevor Donovan is apparently a popular choice, but only in some shots. In others he just looks off (I think it's the chin/jaw). I picture Finnick as a bit more delicate in his facial features than that.

Let's just ignore that part where I said I watched the 90210 remake, k? Haha it was like a train wreck... I couldn't look away!
