I just discovered that those glass yoplait oui jars have removable stickers on them, so you can eat the yogurt and keep the decorated but unbranded jar.

Went out to pick some herbs and we almost had praying mantis instead of rosemary focaccia.

Reminder: do not expect accurate results on election night. Tell yourself this, tell your friends. We will not be able to call it.

I just drove past a sign for inquest marketing and I’ve gotta say their focus groups sound terrifying.

Hey KC! The Rabbit Hole is having a fundraiser and they’re awesome and unique and worth supporting: rabbitholekc.org/good-things

Please consider it and boost, I’d love to see them smash through the goal and make an awesome museum.

I put on a whalers jersey and my daughter told me I look like a subway cup. Maybe they folded due to the color scheme.

That's exactly what a Markov-chain would say!

A friend of mine who teaches elementary school, taught her class, “don’t yuck my yum”

It was like a class mantra, all the kids knew and understood the phrase. So, if a kid brought a bean burrito for lunch, and another kid said “gross! I hate beans” burrito-kid could just say “don’t yuck my yum”

It became the perfect phrase when one student liked something another student hated it. Quickly, it moved from the tangible (food, smells, textures) to the intangible (music, religion, quality)

By the end of the year “don’t tuck my yum” was woven into the culture of the class. They actually used the phrase LESS by then, because yuckers would check themselves before tearing anyone down.

And that class of second graders moved to third, secure in the knowledge that it’s ok to love the things you love, even if other people don’t.
