On Is Snooze the Enemy?

@wendy darling Yes, I use this one too! Utterly fantastic, especially the part where it only lets you snooze a certain amount of times before it just keeps going.

On Is Snooze the Enemy?

@special_boots Oh, thank goodness! So I'm not the only one who did this (the alarm on weekends thing) ;-p
People usually look at me like I'm crazy when I explain it.

On Writer's Block Soup

This sounds delicious but I am one of those people who absolutely HATES celery. Any good substitution suggestions? Or is it OK to just completely leave them out?

On What Is Your Personal Garbage Music?

@Jaya OHH I remember when that happened-- and I went through and listened to it in ALL THE LANGUAGES.
Kind of brilliant actually.

On The Evolution of Miss Scarlet

Ah, I love Clue! Although, apparently I must have used a very old set as a child? Because I was born in 1985, but of those sets of pictures the only one that I recognize at all is the one from 1972...
Though I do vividly remember when my cousins got the "new" Clue game that had all the extra weapons and rooms and people.

On Craft(ing) Beer on a Budget: Five Questionable Recipes

@sophia_h another thing that goes wonderfully with cheap-ass vodka: a brita filter! Amazingly, it really helps remove that awful burn and makes bad vodka astonishingly drinkable.
(Ruins the water filter tho)

On What Is a "Water Fountain"

Curious, how does everyone here say the word "ornery"?
I always pronounced it, well, "or-ner-y" but then my college roommate (from near Sacramento) would always say like "ON-ry"

I always thought she was totally insane but maybe it's actually a thing?

On What Is a "Water Fountain"

@The Everpresent Wordsnatcher Wonder if there's any research about the usage difference between y'all and "all y'all."
I mean, to me, they definitely carry different nuances, but I'd be hard pressed to explain the difference. I feel like it's not just a matter of "all y'all = more people"

ALSO--- a huge pet peeve of mine -- it is spelled Y'ALL, not YA'LL. That's how contractions work, people!
