FTFY to model the Doppler effect of you yelling that at me while passing at twice the speed limit.

That's how I hit the high notes for those cries of girlish glee.

Today should be my last day on bed rest, but even knowing that I am getting impatient with time (the fact I am also expecting a package doesn't help either) and I just want to be able to leave the house again. >.>

I already have plenty of reasons to dislike Starbucks, but Christmas carols in f*cking November? You monsters.

I had a department manager (head of X) tell me that he was dubious of free, open source software (Moodle) because it was free and would rather spend $100,000 on some other solution. I couldn't even think of a response because I was in shock. I am pretty sure I can run this whole place better than most of the people here combined and I've only been here for four days.

I recently discovered something called "kambucha". It's basically fermented tea, tastes a bit like apple cider. It's supposed to be very good for you. The kind I get is raw which means it hasn't been pasturized and still has stuff growing in it. Well the store was out of the plain variety so I tried the "green" version of the drink which had algae and other green healthy things in it.

Don't try it. I very nearly threw up and would describe the taste as an equal mix of sea water and vinegar.

Over here in the Netherlands we can find Carpe Diem brand Kombucha drinks. They're quite nice actually, shame fewer and fewer places stock up on them

Catfish approved!

No more Twinkies.

Hostess Brands closing for good

Of course I haven't eaten a Twinkie in like 15 years, so that might be part of the problem.

As John Scalzi says, someone will buy the brand in bankruptcy, and they will continue.

Of course, the ones already in the warehouses and on store shelves will last for centuries.

FTFY.

Better stock up on Twinkies since we were wanting to do some fried ones after frying our turkeys this year.

My son is sick with a fever and was up most of the night screaming. My wife and I are completely exhausted and quite worried about him. He went to the doctor earlier this week, and we were told it should pass in a couple days; it's just so hard to see him like that.

Kombucha is great! The algae type is okay but it's probably the weirdest tasting. You probably had the GT's brand. I think that's the most common. They sell it lots of places in Oregon. My favorite is Townshend's Lemon Ginger Cayenne. Definitely try a fruit or ginger flavored type. They are sweet and tart.

I've also brewed it myself, but I never had great results, and it's a lot of work.

If by "great" you mean "horrible."

Several years ago when the fad was just starting to dig in a friend passed me a bottle and urged me to try it. It looked like normal bottled tea so I took a large gulp from it and very nearly threw up the rancid tasting mixture.

I should have been more wary of the way he was laughing when he gave the bottle.

Just like beer, coffee, and wine, it is a bit of an acquired taste.

Just like beer liquid nitrogen, coffee the souls of the damned, and wine eagle semen, it is a bit of an acquired taste.

FTFY

Spongebob.

Can you be any more nasal and whiny? Can we please go back to Phineas & Ferb, or Good Eats or Dirty Jobs? I'll even take Cupcake Wars, Sandra Lee or those same four episodes of Too Cute that always seem to be on Animal Planet.

Let me refer you back to something a wise man once said. It may apply here as well.

And after all, this is the "loathe right now" thread. I may possibly be suffering from an everything-gets-on-my-nerves sort of afternoon.

I was just kidding. At any rate, I hope the weekend goes better for you.

At least one roommates is pissing in bottles to be thrown away instead of, you know, using the plumbing!

One of the bottles leaked.

The protracted work on my kitchen has been delayed because the repair guys didn't want to deal with it. Damage to cabinetry has been done.

I got nothing. Well, I got plumbing. I even use the plumbing. Beyond that, I got nothing.

There was a girl who did that in my dorm, sophomore year. She also pooped in containers and threw that out; eventually she was caught dumping in the garbage, and was expelled from the dorm, for it being a health hazard.

Good lord. Poop in the dorm showers, like an adult.

We got told, every year, not to do that.

Why the hell would anyone do that instead of just using a toilet? Storing your waste in a container and then throwing it out would require a lot more work than just flushing it like a regular person.
