soulflwr: Sensuality does not wear a watch but she always gets to the essential places on time. She is adventurous and not particularly quiet. She was reprimanded in grade school because she couldn’t sit still all day long. She needs to move. She thinks with her body. Even when she goes to…

johnwolcott: My name is Michael Wolcott. My grandfather passed away four weeks ago. He was 78 years old. My family cleaned his house out three weeks ago, and one of the things we kept was the computer we gave him for Christmas two years ago. It was always running whenever we would go over… I am absolutely lost. I thought this was a joke. Hm..
1769, from Fr. boulevard (15c.), originally “top surface of a military rampart”, from a garbled attempt to adopt M.Du. bolwerc ”wall of a fortification” into French, which lacks a -w-. The original notion is of a promenade laid out atop demolished city walls, which would be much wider than urban streets. Originally in English with conscious echoes of Paris; since 1929, in...

If so, I feel bad for you, son. It’ll still be a wedding tomorrow afternoon. And Saturday. And whenever you have the time to watch the ceremony, if you really feel the need to. I don’t know. The idea of watching it live, but not being there, is really only necessary if you’re in prison but you’re supposed to be a groomsman/bridesmaid. Then you should Skype your ass in. ...

Pie-berating Donut-netting Timed yawning (unsure of which is more difficult - yawning for the longest, or yawning the fastest. Also, typing ‘yawning’ made me yawn. You are likely about to yawn as well.)
Reader Poll: Gender-Neutral Singular Pronoun!
“Each student must do _______ homework before class.” Which pronoun do you use? ‘His’? ‘Her’? ‘Its’? ‘Their’? Politically-correct-but-awkward ‘his/her’? Weigh in, guys ‘n’ gals ‘n’ inanimate objects!
Things I just realized:
kdek: The “What would your royal name be?” results in (for me) Lady Dixie of Princess Toothbrush Bristle Heatherton. Quite regal, yes? Mine is Lord Alfred William William. I didn’t know this was a Thing. I thought people at work had just come up with it. Although I remember this sort of mad-lib game from years ago.

booyahgrandmere: At the grocery store I bought: 3 apples 3 bananas 1 bag of baby carrots 1 avocado 1 head of lettuce It was TEN DOLLARS! How am I supposed to live?! Produce is supposed to be cheap! I just came here to complain. That’s stupid! Stupid food industry!

therealkatiewest: I don’t know how many of you are aware, but Canada is currently in the middle of a federal election. This is Canada’s third federal election in five years, but I’ll get into that more later.

I have three kids and no money. Why can’t I have no kids and three money?– Co-Worker, redeeming himself with excellent quotage.
Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us...– Ira Glass (via wilwheaton)

If someone puts, say, Taariq or Priya in a question, he says he’d rather it be Trevor or Pamela. Seriously white-bread names, yo. The more often it happens, the less it seems to be in jest and the more it seems to be an honest dislike for multicultural names. I don’t know what to think.
At first I thought it ain't no thang. But then I...
I stand corrected!
