On Conversations With Old Men

@Danzig! Yes! Pete's on colfax, not the big one but the little one with the bakery. There were always old Greek men there either reading the paper or playing dominoes.

On An Ode to the Diva Cup

After years of hearing the cup-evangelizing, this thread finally inspired me to go over to amazon and order one. Funny thing? It gave me the option to post on Facebook that I had just bought "Instead 12 hr Feminine protection cup, 24 ea". Tempted.

On Humblebrags About My Dog

@lorenzo Maybe not a mix, maybe a piebald dachshund? It's what we have, in a long-haired version and she's both lovely and hilarious.

On Some Incredible Men

So I was curious how widely used the term was, and came across the awesomeness of this Urban Dictionary entry. (definition number 5)
http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Mansplain

mansplain

657 up, 1466 down

A word typically used to imply that the previous speaker is overly condescending and/or has a different way of explaining because he happens to be a man and the other party a woman. Usually, this is based in an over- or misinterpretation based on prejudice about the alleged mainsplainers intentions or on an inability to take constructive feedback. Sometimes it is used as an attempt to unfairly discredit the speaker or his arguments without having to provide counter-arguments. Typically, the mansplainer is simultaneously implied to be sexist or misogynistic.

@spoondisaster Was it Nosara? Because if it was Nosara then I'm going to decide the universe was sending me a sign today.

On Make a Bunch of Friends in a Beautiful Place

Sigh. I'm having one of those days where I would like to run away. "Costa Rica real estate" was my first Google search on the work PC this morning. And now this. Stacked against me, I tell you.

@Diana Maybe H & M? I have one that I got there a couple years ago, but I don't see anything exactly like it now. Here's one that seems to fit the look... http://www.hm.com/us/product/94727?article=94727-C
