@DullHypothesis When my dad is between girlfriends, I always get the privilege of listening to his cost analysis of produce at Costco vs. Whole Foods and his ethical and economic conundrua wrt to conventional vs. organic bananas.

On What My Mom Wishes I Was Blogging About

Is it wrong I always call my mom at 7 p.m. on Mondays? And then at 7:55, I conveniently say, "Oh, I better let you go! It's almost time for The Bachelor/ette/DWTS!"

Because I do.

Will this work OK with my metal French press?

Seriously, though, the glass French presses are just an explosion waiting to happen.

On Before Too Long, Everyone You Know Will Be Named Emma

@RubeksCube My grandmother goes by her middle name, too. It's actually passed down through several generations as a middle name, so we share it. Sometimes, when my dude wants to tease me, he refers to me by my old lady middle name.

Also, my grandfather went by his middle name (which is SUPER old-timey) until he joined the Army.

@werewolfbarmitzvah Samuel. There you go.

If it helps, all the new boy babies I know have Con(n)or, Peter, Paul and/or Benjamin as part of their name. And I know way more than four new boy babies.

On Before Too Long, Everyone You Know Will Be Named Emma

@iceberg At some point, all names are coinage names. My first name is a noun/place that became a name relatively recently. And, yet, people STILL mispronounce and misspell it on a regular basis.

However, I snark relentlessly on people who intentionally misspell our name. IT IS A THING. GET IT RIGHT.
