Today, my dentist greeted me with, "What's doing?" and it broke my brain. FYI, the internet suggests that the correct answer to this question is, "Nothing."
I've had the Kellerman's song from Dirty Dancing stuck in my head for days.
A Quirky Collection of Cat Whiskers Diligently Cataloged in a Handbound Book from the 1940s "This recent discovery in the Collingwood Archive of the Cardiff University Special Collections purrfectly catalogs a young girl's childhood quirks. A handmade book by Janet Gnosspelius contains every one of her cats’ whiskers found in her home from 1940 to 1942." https://www.thisiscolossal.com/2020/01/cat-whiskers-collingwood-archive/
"Archivists say the meticulous nature Gnosspelius exhibited in creating her book remained throughout her life as she worked in 'local history and building conservation, regularly posting samples of masonry to Liverpool City Planning Office, neatly labelled with their provenance and date, demanding their restoration.'"· Meg Vmeg 1

I love how the "gloria" in "Ding Dong Merrily on High" just keeps on going, like it's broken.
The composer heard Angels We Have Heard On High and thought it needed more Gloria. He also hates letting singers breathe.· Anna C. 5
Well, they're both traditional French tunes originally, so now I'm imagining they came from two neighboring villages trying to outdo each other in how long *their* singers could do a run without having to breathe. (The "Ding Dong" tune wasn't originally for a Christmas carol, but let me have my headcanon.)· John Mark Ockerbloom 6
(Incidentally, it looks like "Ding Dong Merrily on High" is joining the public domain in the US at the end of the octave of Christmas. I wrote about it here: https://everybodyslibraries.com/2019/12/19/2020-vision-4-ding-dong-merrily-on-high-by-george-ratcliffe-woodward-and-others/ )· John Mark Ockerbloom 2
Trump campaign plagued by groups raising tens of millions in his name "As President Donald Trump raises money for his reelection campaign, he’s competing for cash with a growing mass of pro-Trump PACs, dark money groups and off-brand Facebook advertisers neither affiliated with nor endorsed by Trump’s campaign. And they have pulled in over $46 million so far." https://www.politico.com/news/2019/12/23/trump-campaign-compete-against-groups-money-089454
Amazing.· Meg Vmeg 1
"The groups mimic Trump’s brand in the way they look and feel. They borrow the president’s Twitter avatar on Facebook pages, use clips of Trump’s voice in robocalls asking for 'an emergency contribution to the campaign' and, in some cases, have been affiliated with former Trump aides, such as onetime deputy campaign manager David Bossie. But most are spending little money to help the president win in 2020, POLITICO found."· Meg Vmeg

What fad toys did you acquire as a kid? (E.g. Cabbage Patch Kids...)
Cabbage patch dolls and a furby· ellbeecee 2
I had all the fashion doll fads of the 70's, Dawn, Dynamite (and her ski chalet), Sunshine Family (and the 2 seater bicycle with baby carrier), 2 Cher dolls, Charlie's Angels, Nina Ballerina, Bionic Woman (and inflatable dome house), Leggy, Tuesday Taylor, the Sweet April babies, I Dream of Jeanie, all of the Flatsy doll playsets, and of course a bunch of Barbies. My sister and I had all the dolls, not just the fashion dolls. Whatever I didn't have, she did. My stepmother would just go through the doll aisle in Toys R Us and pick out anything she didn't remember buying before, then stick half under the tree for my sister and the rest for me.· April ᛃ 2
Someone was able to spoof(???) my Google credentials to make 29 PayPal transactions for $3.26 each, and I have no advice for you, re: preventative measures, because I have no idea how it happened (which is really the worst part). Google is giving the money back, except for 2(???) of the identical charges. Don't use money, y'all.

"As an amateur beekeeper, semi-professional game designer, and generally pedantic person, I decided to play all the games I could find on the subject and rate them according to their 'realism'. The rating goes from one (⬢⬡⬡⬡⬡) to five (⬢⬢⬢⬢⬢) honeycomb cells."· Meg Vmeg 2
I will absolutely play some of these games.· Meg Vmeg 1
"The first and only game that simulates the method used to find feral honeybee hives. The rigorous simulation is integrated with delightful story bits. The Citizen Kane of beekeeping games." I love this already.· Pembe Mendiller 1
