This is the thread where we post pictures of animals dressed up for Halloween

28 October 2013

A true epiphany. A couple months ago I reported my latest realization in my adventures in self management: knowing when you're not "thinking right" and thus skipping thinking. Turns out, this has probably been the single most positive contributor to my internal state ever. The ability to let a negative emotion dissipate rather than invite yourself to mulling it. It works ✓

My daughter just called to tell me...
Indoor voices, please! Hi. Recently we've had a few new people move into cubicle land, and they have a habit of shouting through the cubicle walls (rather than getting up and walking ten feet to have a conversation). This is not only annoying, but distracting. My various dx plus my not-quite-dx'ed ADD doesn't help matters any. Let's assume that moving my desk is most likely not an option. How would you handle it? I don't want to alienate anyone, but it's really hard to concentrate and get work done. Every time I put on headphones they shout even louder. I am also at the bottom of the food chain in this room, not by senority, but by rank/caste. Their supervisor has a fearsome reputation and requires an appointment to talk to.

He'll do it but it doesn't mean he'll like it It's a dutiful love or that next line on the checklist of resentment. You decide.
How to ask a question. Between one minute and the next, my Windows Vista machine stopped talking to the internet. All other internet devices in the house, including this other computer I'm using, work fine. I was using Chrome, but other browswers don't work either. My question is, what do I need to try first/find out in order to properly ask for help over on AskMe? I've restarted the computer and reset the modem and router, but I'm stuck after that.

Project Runway Finale SPOILERS
Great live set from Jason Isbell of songs from his recent album. I've been listening to his latest album, Southeastern,pretty constantly for the last few weeks. I loved his work with The Drive-By Truckers but this his new stuff is really a revelation.
Come guess some song lyrics
Photo Friday : Hats and Headgear

17 October 2013

Half-Chewed Cole Haan Wingtip by Emerging Canine Artist, Left Shoe, Size 11.5D "The work has been interpreted by contemporary art critics as a statement on class in the wake of the American recession, a painful and complex subject for the modern American dog. Due to the nature of the artist's process, the collector who places the winning bid will no doubt hear gasps of "How in the hell?," "Oh my God," and "Was he using a chainsaw?" upon displaying the piece."

Hump Day Hypothetical
I have not had decent bangs for years because (wait for it) Apparently, some (most?) hair spray nozzles are angled up! To make sure you do a good job on the top of your head, or something.

I mean, you close your eyes before you use hair spray, or at least before you spray your bangs, which is bad enough because if you didn't start with your bangs, by the time you get to them you might have the hairspray at the wrong angle and not know it. So then you make extra sure it's the right angle (after first blaming the hair spray, getting a new kind or whatever)but you STILL can't spray your bangs because you didn't think to check the nozzle angle.
All the frustration that could have been saved if I had simply noticed that one stupid thing.
Go check your hair spray nozzle right now.
They need to put special bang instructions on the bottle. I should put this on reddit. I am MAD.

What can I do with 1 quince? I got one from the CSA and it is almost ripe. I can't make jelly or membrillo since I only have 1. What should I do with it? Maybe this tarte tatin recipe and use apples for the rest?

Weekend ramblings about that obsolete 'dead tree' medium, the newspaper I still like the concept of a newspaper, even though I once blogged that the local newspaper, with the big banner "THE TRIBUNE", when left around the apartment, seemed to multiply, prompting me to rename it "THE TRIBBLE". Cut my subscription down to Sunday only, but they give me Saturday free for some reason. So, still Tribbling.Read more...
