@leylusha I used to, from 2001 to about 2009, and then I forgot my password and didn't try to get it back. I should. I think my sister still uses it. It was great!

@harebell I'll have to look at that article. When I saw the interview with the man, I knew it would go viral for all the same reasons Antoine Dodson and many other black people have. It's a shame to hear about his past, but it's impressive that he stepped in to help someone when so many others would have walked away. He was a hero that day, no matter what.

And I can't even begin to imagine what they went through, right in the middle of a big city. How twisted. One of the victims is about my age. I tried to imagine losing the last ten years of my life... I can't. I just hope that if something that awful happens around me that I can help.

@supernintendochalmers @supernintendochalmers Julep! Here's a referral if you want to try out being a Maven (sort of like Birchbox, but with more choices.)

Also, Natalie Dee of internet fame has a nail polish line now. Looks fun! Lots of holographic polishes.

@[sic] I liked it, but I didn't LOVE it until I noticed the third one in front!

Has the Pin talked about the freed women held captive in Cleveland? That story is going to stay in my mind for a while. (Sorry for not finding out myself; I'm at work and can't browse much.)

@districter My friend stayed in a house there with a cat and dog they liked. They had a car, though. I'll ask her how the neighborhood was.

On Other People's Kids, Homes

This comes a day after I went to an after-funeral dinner to support a good friend who just lost his 25-year-old sister in a car accident. During his touching (and brief) speech to his closest friends and family, his 4-year-old cousin ran wildly through the banquet hall, her little brother chasing her, yelling, then stopped at her chair and yelled about balloons for a good 3 minutes before her dad came over, knelt beside the kids... and did who knows what, because whatever he said or did failed to stop the gleeful squeals.

I was appalled. The little girl was adorable, yes, but how could her parents let her do that? She needed to either be taken outside or told to CUT IT OUT NOW. Four is beyond old enough to understand you don't get to run around yelling at all moments. Especially during a short speech at a goddamn after-funeral dinner.

On the upside, my friend claims he barely noticed it.
