@katiemcgillicuddy I don't watch hockey, but I know enough to appreciate this amazing goal:

@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) maybe a minihand massage? Nothing too long or involved, but it always feels nice when someone does that for me.

@katiemcgillicuddy Oh man, I think playoffs baseball is the best, maybe especially because our Nats are out? [They didn't deserve the wildcard and now it's less stressful to watch the games.]

@themegnapkin It's affecting me directly! My fiance is furloughed and applied for unemployment today, which is really cool since we're getting married in five weeks. Really really exciting times!!

it's completely horrific that a small faction of one party can do this and that they don't even seem to care a bit about the havoc they're wreaking

@SmartCookie my fiance, future mother in law, and many many friends are being furloughed and rumor has it, they won't even get back pay this time, as it would require congressional approval. this whole mess is stupid and terrible. vote 'em out.

On Half of Accidental Child Gun Deaths Go Uncounted

This was such a good--and important-- article. I hope it gets all the attention it deserves and that something gets done about this issue.
