On Did You Spend Memorial Day At Work?

@annecara Yeah, avoiding that is why I came into my closed office for several hours yesterday.

On The Argument for Processed Food

@therealjaygatsby But also, don't think you're eating "peasant food" as if that's somehow morally superior.

On Tuesday Check-in

@amglory89 Yeah, only one of the three cards I have in my wallet -- all new in the last month or so -- has a chip. I felt like a rube when I was Europe last year!

On The Argument for Processed Food

@chickpeas akimbo And traditions can come on quickly! One side of my family is from Quebec, but they'd never heard of poutine until it started coming down here a few years ago, because they all left Canada before it was invented in the 1950s.

@Stina I only have pictures on my phone! Hmm. She's a lovely tortie lady with a mostly-black nose.

On Tuesday Check-in

I never do these (prediction or reporting), but I had fun expenses this weekend! I got a cat! $75 adoption fee, $85 on supplies. Also got a massage, saw Mad Max, went out to lunch twice, patronized a kid's lemonade stand, did a little grocery shopping, and maybe that's it? ~$300 total.

On Had We But World Enough & Time, Here's What We'd Splurge On, Food-Wise

What are chocolate bosoms?? I mostly do spend what I want on food, but I would like to buy fancier cheeses more often. So maybe I will buy some fancier cheese today! It is Friday, after all.

On A Cupcake Decorator Gets Fired for Being a Hero

@blueSF That is what I meant! That's a lot of letters to put on 72 cupcakes. I do not know what the author meant.
