    For some reason, I read 3.9 on the USGS site. But I could've just been looking in the wrong place. I love little earthquakes. We just kept talking through it on our conference call. Exciting stuff.

    Suja, I am generally built like a boy from the waist down (no butt), so those types of short-person jeans fit me quite well.

    BTW, tried crushing a whole head of garlic with my hand just like the guy in the video. I only half attempted it, since I doubted I had the strength anyway, and even with my feeble attempt, it hurt like a mofo.

    Myles, they revised it by the next time I looked at it. I don't know why the first report was 4.2. That must have been the preliminary by computer and then a real person revised it or something. That was a very gentle "WTH site were you looking at, you exaggerator?!?" BTW.

    Heh. I really wasn't sure. They changed the site since the last time I was on it. BART trains are really delayed as they check the transbay tube/tunnel. I hope it'll be back on track (pun intended) in an hour when I go home.

    YES! That would be the type of bra I'd like. Bummer they don't have any more.

    We did that last week - it totally works! You have to have the big bowls so that the cloves have enough room to get some good momentum. I was inordinately happy to have that knowledge in my head. Like peeling a banana from the bottom up is so much easier than top down. Another internet find.

    There are options for unpadded lacy bras but I think you have to pay some money. I got one for $65 - lovely navy with baby blue lace. But I have to pay money for all my stupid bras, padded or not. I have a ridiculous bosom right now. I used to be a 32 C but now I am a 32E. I can't find a bra in a regular store - have to go to a special bra store. Hate.

    I'm sorry about your car, Erin. And your awful porn store experience. I have never actually been in one of those stores.

    Yay! I love that area! We stayed out there for about four days a couple of years ago - so beautiful. DH did the canoe trip out to see the Apostle Islands and I stayed back with JoJo. He ended up getting paired up with a woman who got seasick halfway in and was throwing up over the side of the canoe. But he really enjoyed it. We went blueberry and raspberry picking and had a lovely time.

    Um, ok...that was interesting. I had no idea it would open that easy from the bottom. But I've never struggled to open one from the top, nor had any 'mishaps' opening them from the top either! lol

    Yeah - I never actually do it because I don't like to eat what I call "banana butts" - that little black hard piece at the bottom. I usually just cut into the stem with my fingernail or a knife and peel it that way. But still I was happy to know that.

    I don't like pickle butts either - my dh taunts me by eating the end parts I cut off.

    I'm the same way about the 'butts' of those too. I just pinch the banana ones off with my fingers though. Actually, if you fold the peel just right you don't even have to touch the banana and those ends break right off.

    LOL - I hate eating all varieties of butts! Sandwich ends, banana ends, you name it. I always leave a little bit of whatever it is when I'm finished if it has any sort of "end"!

    I don't remember where I first heard that you can do that, but it was probably here. I do it all the time now!

    DH just asked me what I was reading about and I said "pickle butts". He was like

    Well he did ask me what I meant and I explained to him the context and he said "Oh ok, it makes sense now. I thought you said Go Bots." LOL

    Ha! And I was feeling kinda bad for teaching Bodhi to call the hard nibbly end of fruits like peaches and apples the "butt". I thought I'd made it up and it might be vulgar, but now here we are, respectable heathens having a pleasant conversation about it.

    I don't think we've called the ends of fruits or pickles anything...up until now.

    HA!

    We've always called the ends of various items the "butts" I don't eat any "butt" items including pickles, bananas, bread. Who would want to eat a "butt"

    Brat butts. Never. (As in the sausage type food, not the unruly child.)

    Done! Neat trick.

    I've had a strange day. It started last night at midnight, when I turned on the heat for the first time this year (it finally is cold enough) and crawled into bed with DH and Abbey, who had already made the pilgrimage into our bed. After a nanosecond the searing loud fire alarm starts sounding, waking everyone, of course. I told DH to turn off the heater and took Abbey downstairs, but it's a new house and the alarms are super loud everywhere. It finally turned off and we blamed the heater but didn't really know why it happened. After I got Abbey back down I went into our closet downstairs to put laundry away since I had too much adrenaline to sleep. In the closet I heard scratching next to the wall. Mice! or worse, rats! It was the wall next to garage and I thought there was something getting into the bird seed bag. So that leads me to the garage today, to figure where the suckers are hiding. It looked like mouse droppings and our pest control people are coming out tomorrow to set traps. While I was moving things in the garage I noticed some drywall on a desk out there, and looked up at the ceiling: water damage. A big water stain on the ceiling with a piece of drywall missing. So I'll have to figure out who to call about that tomorrow.

    I'm super thankful for that series of events because if it hadn't happened I don't know if we would have noticed the water damage, and here in TX a water leak like that can turn into black mold super quickly. I'm pretty sure it's a new leak so it should just be a pipe/drywall repair, and no mold issue.


    Sorry that was a novel!

    What an odd chain of events.
    Our smoke fire alarms went off the other day too. Twice now it has happened and no smoke.

    What kind of heater is it? Could it have been your carbon monoxide detector going off?

    Ditto. Although, like the others, I don't eat some of these butts either.

    I peel bananas the non-simian way, but peel plantains the simian way. Weird, huh?

    I couldn't tell you - I don't think I've ever peeled a plantain! I've eaten them, though, in Central American cooking.
