A San Luis Obispo notable has been recommended for the Nobel Peace Prize.
No, it's not Weird Al or Alex Madonna (builder of the Madonna Inn), and yes, I know it's an op-ed in the HuffPo, but still...

It's a shame
that most of the time I'm busy, exhausted or both during daylight hours, because for some reason children love
So I've finally gotten around to creating a Flickr set

Invent me a cocktail? So we acquired a bottle of cranberry rum, of all things. I have no idea how to drink it. Usually if I'm drinking liquor I'm drinking gin and tonic. But I like anything cocktail-y. Invent me something? Kisses!
I really dislike Slate magazine.

New Flickr To be honest, I haven't had a whole lot of time to tool around with it yet, but I'd love to hear any thoughts/complaints/alternatives etc. that any of you have. Yes, I'm being lazy, but I know there are a lot of heavy Flickr users here, and I value your opinions.

Happy birthday: brujita, JanetLand, and Senyar!
How not to use social media
Is anyone else enjoying the whole Amy's Baking Company/Kitchen Nightmare fiasco like I am? Not that I support some of behaviour towards them, such as posting fake Yelp threats or the sending of the death threats Amy and Samy claim to be getting, but the rest is pure, trainwreck-y delight.
Happy Birthday WolfDaddy, Drasher and me!

If nobody else is going to come up with a theme for Photo Phriday, I have some fresh pics from when the Tour of California passed in front of my home, so let's say "Tour" or maybe "Cycle"...
so, as someone who--to put it charitably--could get a better handle on his life
I am sort of emotionally susceptible these days both to critique and to praise. I've been trying to get a handle on it and just learn to take both in stride. To that end I've come across this amazingly on-point quote:→Read more...

Tweet of the day:
"You've decided to refer to Bill Corbett in a combination of 2nd and 3rd person. He may wind up confusing yourself."
Atom Eyes loves this a lot.
I have been invited to, of all places, a cigar bar. I have no idea what to wear (aside from "clothes I'm okay with dry cleaning instantly after"). Is it formal? Clubby? Velvet? Flannel? The context is low-key celebration but not sure where this ranks in the "how acceptable are sneakers in this situation" scale, so to speak.
