On You Are Entitled to One Hour, Six Minutes, and 48 Seconds of Comfort

@Scandyhoovian Same here. I have literally never had a pair of shoes that has not hurt/given me a blister at least to begin with. For the longest time I'd bring two pairs of shoes to work with me: one that gave me blisters on my toes, and one that gave me blisters on my heel. That way I could switch them out partway through the day so I could still walk all day.

On This Wedding Season, Say Yes to Strangers: What I Learned From My Craigslist Date

@iceberg When my Aussie cousin came to visit us her dad bought her a fake ID so she could still drink. So, you know, options!

On Stevie Nicks, Fairy Godmother

@olivebee The article definitely seems to be trying to polarize the argument more than it actually is. I have ornithologist friends, and none of them hate cats. They're not fond of people letting their cats roam outdoors, but they don't hate cats.

@Linette I love A Softer World so very much.

On Friday Open Thread

@smidge Lately I've been into buying a tub of unflavoured Greek yogurt and putting some sort of jam/compote (e.g. simmer rhubarb and sugar and vanilla 10 minutes until it breaks down, or blueberry, or whatever) on top, maybe with some nuts if I'm feeling fancy.

My other go-tos are apple/pear and cheese, veggies and a bit of beef jerky, or a banana with peanut butter.

On A Brief Addendum to Our Craigslist Wedding Story

@Quinn A@twitter I'm guessing he drunkenly throught that waving a shotgun would be a funny "JESUS FUCK NICK STOP KNOCKING ON THE GODDAMN DOOR" and somehow pulled the trigger while doing it

ETA: Which LilRedCorvette just said

On This Wedding Season, Say Yes to Strangers: What I Learned From My Craigslist Date

@hallelujah If a bride got bridezilla enough to demand that I find a man to date just to improve the photos/balance genders or whatever the reasoning is, I'd do some passive-aggressive protesting no matter how much I loved her. I don't know if I'd be as balls-out bold as Lindsey, but I like her style.

On The AARP Pie

@AnalogMetronome I call people "ma'am/sir" and I'm not even southern. There really just isn't a good alternative if you don't know someone's name, and I'm too Canadian to say "hey, you!" to strangers.

On What Is a "Water Fountain"

@districter I was astonished that everyone was so wrong. They're RUNNERS, people.

On What Is a "Water Fountain"

@karenb I think the northern Ontario accents are pretty similar to the northern BC accents. And there's the Ottawa Valley accent, too. And the pronunciation of "Toronto".
