What the heck r they spraying over us?! It's been happening for years but only this extreme for the past few months
Apparently, this also works when someone likes a post that you make in response to theirs, in situations where a like clearly indicates that they did not realize that you were expressing contempt for their post.
I feel almost guilty for laughing so hard.
Enjoying a couple of microwave pork patty sandwiches (embellished with pickles and onions) and fries for supper. Let me just say, microwavable sandwiches have come a long way from the days of MicroMagic.
This is my new favorite coffee. Why? Maple Bacon Coffee, that's why!!
As someone who bicycle commutes 80+ percent of the time (in a city with quite adequate bicycle infrastructure, so no need to ever lock my bike to a pole) I can certainly sympathize with someone whose bike was stolen or removed by the authorities. However, given the specific request for a new lock, I would definitely smile to see the bicycle returned and locked to the pole, as requested. The original owner didn't ask for the KEY to the new lock...
So, because my mom is superstitious, and believes in curses and ****, she's spent the better part of a quarter century terrifying me and my sister. Her great-grandmother was only sixty-one when she died, her grandmother died at sixty-two, and her mother died at sixty-three, so she's legitimately spent the last twenty-five years utterly convinced that she was going to die at sixty-four.
Well, today, we celebrated my mom's sixty-fifth birthday. So, suck on that, curse!
She doesn't have the strongest voice, but heartbroken Mary J. Blige is Top 5 all time. Nobody communicates her pain quite like Mary.
Bah! I don't tweet but, if I did, I'd be making a tweet that looked like this, right about now:

There's a chance to see a supermoon tonight! It's one of three upcoming supermoons taking the celestial stage. Get the details here: http://go.nasa.gov/2BDM32G
Sorry, VF21 - I'm not so excited about it. Twitter posts copied and pasted in order, from yesterday (12/3/2017):

FYI: The very concept of a Super Moon is an embarrassment to everything else we call super: Supernova, Supercollider, Superman, Super Mario Bros.
If last month’s Full Moon were a 16.0 inch pizza, then this month’s “Super” Moon would be 16.1 inches. I’m just saying.
if a 16.1 inch pizza is “super" to you, compared with a 16.0 inch pizza, then we have an issue of vocabulary..
Want another? This month's “Super Moon” is 1% brighter than last month’s non-Super Moon.
And another? For the Super Moon to look big in a picture requires a substantial telephoto lens. Try one with just your smart phone and post it.
Last one… The Super Moon will fit easily in the field of view through a simple drinking straw. Try it.
