What are you cooking this weekend?
Probably white bean, kale, and sausage stew. with kale & sausage from the FMarket, and white beans from Trader Joe's. A tomato, if the spouse will let me get away with it (he doesn't like toms in soup) ‎· Stephªnℹ︎eCogScℹ︎Lℹ︎brªrℹ︎ªn ‎· 3

I don't really believe in taking vitamins, but there's a whole fucking *half-aisle* of gummy vitamins at my drugstore, so I bought some on a lark, and now I can't stop eating them.
I'm convinced that they're not allowed to manufacture iron ones, because then people would poison themselves because they're too delicious. ‎· Meg Vmeg ‎· 1
If they ever make gummy vitamins that taste like Licorette, I'll be in trouble. But so far, it's just fruit flavors, which keeps me safe. (but Hall's citrus flavored sugar-free vitamin C drops are an entirely different beast, which I eat purely for the flavor and don't give a hoot about the vitamin C in them) ‎· April

Never underestimate the impact of telling a nine-year-old that the movie Footloose is based on a true story that took place a few hours north of them.
Yes, it's on the way to grandma's house. ‎· Meg Vmeg
That moment a 9yo finds out they're far less than 6 degrees of separation from Footloose. ‎· Micah ‎· 1
That moment I'm shocked a 9 year old even knows what "Footloose" is... ‎· Spidra Webster ‎· 1
Oh, I meant myself when I was 9 years old. I never trusted conservatives' judgement again, after I learned that dancing had been recently/currently illegal in real, actual, nearby places. It seemed fundamentally arbitrary and mean. ‎· Meg Vmeg ‎· 4

If the Indians can win the World Series, I 50% believe that it might return us to the real timeline, the one that we left when the Cubs won last year.
This is one of those New York songs that I can't relate to at all, but I still totally love: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4TPqUvy1vYU

Can you think of any songs that talk about "service" in a positive (and nonsexual) light? Preferably not hymns. Doesn't have to be strictly literal. Someone's mentioned "Bridge Over Troubled Water" already.

“Everyone should know, including the president, this is what real locker room talk is,” Joe Lockhart, the NFL’s executive vice president of communications and public affairs, said in a conference call with reporters earlier Monday. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/early-lead/wp/2017/09/25/...

Wait, are they protesting because Trump called them SOBs or because they are against police brutality. It's not clear. (AND YES I'M BEING THAT JERK. Let's not turn this into an all lives matter thing. Kaepernick started this when Obama was president.) ‎· Kendra K ‎· 2
It's hard to motivate yourself to do annoying stuff by coming up with fun rewards, when you feel like you should always get all of the fun rewards because there's always so much annoying stuff to do.

Wow, did you know that you can volunteer to help elderly and low income folks do their taxes? https://www.irs.gov/individuals/irs-tax-volunteers
This is the kind of volunteering I would be amazing at. I love doing income taxes (especially when they're easy-to-medium level of difficulty, which they aren't for me anymore). ‎· Meg Vmeg ‎· 7
My mom does this, and she also does similar work with international students at Purdue, whose tax situations are mindblowingly complex. She ADORES getting folks their EIC. ‎· Catherine ‎· 3

I wish more people saw/enjoyed the original Starship Troopers. It's a surprisingly handy political and cultural reference (and a great movie).

In case you were looking for a good, local-to-Houston place to donate for #Harvey, Lone Star Legal is one of the main providers of free legal services in the region (one of my friends worked there for years), and not only is their building flooded out, this morning it fucking exploded: http://www.thedailybeast.com/downtown-houston-building-explod...

From the Guidestar profile: "LONE STAR LEGAL AID ASSISTS VULNERABLE POPULATIONS LIKE BATTERED WOMEN AND CHILDREN, SENIOR CITIZENS, THE DISABLED, AND VETERANS FOR WHOM LEGAL ASSISTANCE CAN BE LIFE-ALTERING. LSLA ATTORNEYS PROVIDE FREE LEGAL ASSISTANCE FOR THOSE TEXANS WHO CANNOT AFFORD A PRIVATE ATTORNEY IN MATTERS SUCH AS DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, CONSUMER FRAUD, WRONGFUL FORECLOSURE, ACCESS TO HEALTH CARE, AND DISASTER RELIEF." ‎· Meg Vmeg

They've removed all the price labels from the vending machines at work. Instead, you have to tap a screen, type in an item's number, and then it will show you the price. THIS MAKES ME SO ANGRY.
Is that so they can change the prices more easily? ‎· John B. ‎· 1
I dislike that kind of machine so much. I'll go hangry. ‎· Jilli ‎· 1
I don't know! They'd still have to program in new prices if they switch things around? Is that easier? ‎· Meg Vmeg
You know how the Washington Post changed its motto to "Democracy Dies in Darkness"? It's started to feel less like a warning/threat and more like a description of what's happening.
Given that WaPo's new owner hasn't removed Amazon's ads from Breitbart yet, that may be his intention... ‎· Spidra Webster
