I'm just going to sit here and impatiently wait for someone to start writing Sam Biddle + female carnie romance fanfic. I think if I get some time later today, I'll try. Hamilton will be the carnie girl's secret father who abandoned her at Coney Island years ago. He will stop at nothing to prevent them from… » 8/20/14 12:51pm Yesterday 12:51pm

I agree. I'm a St. Louis resident and I think this is the easiest way to get rid of the looters and let the residents get a decent night of sleep. I'm not sure if media are included in the curfew but I think they also need time to recharge. I think the local media folks are exhausted and are sick of the national folks… » 8/16/14 6:15pm Saturday 6:15pm

Yep, I feel the same way. I am staying at my job for a very long time because the benefits are good and I'm not in the mood to build up my vacation and sick time again. Starting over with minimal PTO is terrible when you have children. I'll be at my job for a while. My husband switches his jobs every 2 years. » 8/12/14 11:04am 8/12/14 11:04am

I was also going to say that about the changing it on the floor of the restroom. If they're too tiny to stand, you can make them fit on the changing pad. If they're tall enough to stand, I've changed diapers while they're standing up on the dirty restroom floor. It's tricky but it is better than changing a diaper… » 8/11/14 10:07am 8/11/14 10:07am

Here's why I got into it: I initially worked in journalism as a TV news producer. Started out in a small market where all of the producers were female, busted ass and quickly got a job in a medium sized media market where the producers were 50% women and 50% men. The news director initially was a woman who then left… » 8/08/14 4:08pm 8/08/14 4:08pm

B&N tends to do a lot of this kind of stuff. The one in my area had some Star Wars cosplayers. Some had top notch costumes, others did not. My kids didn't really care. They gladly posed with realistic Darth Maul and overweight Skywalker. It's free entertainment organized by a bookstore. Agree that people need to stop… » 8/06/14 6:58pm 8/06/14 6:58pm

Agree. I kind of see the benefit in this. Once school starts, I have two kids in two different locations. I keep my cell phone on my desk but inevitably the only time I ever get a call is when I step out to pick up something from the printer or go to the bathroom. I get up, move away from the phone, someone calls… » 8/06/14 10:05am 8/06/14 10:05am
