I am deeply enamored of your show, Pseu. I find myself humming Thing With a Hook at the strangest times. It is a fine example of what a hook is!

Lives of a Cell: Notes of a Biology Watcher by Lewis Thomas is a cool book describing support systems and communication in our universe. Ants are amazing.

"So" is a lazy crutch like Well, etc. You're absolutely right, Pseu.

To not sound like a bureucratic spokes-drone, don't use "reference" in place of "to refer to."

Krys that's disappointing but kind of not surprising to me after hearing an interview with him. What does he do on Twitter?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/2/18 12:43pm Hughie Considine:

Not meant as an attack on anyone on this thread, but "just saying" is about as irksome as "So..." I would rather have it disappear than just about any other noxious phrase of the moment, except perhaps "sophomore effort."
Avatar Tue. 1/2/18 12:44pm Pseu Braun:

AGREED

Hi Pseu. If we can change one thing in our daily speak, can we delete the word "nice?" It kinda means nothing.

Thin thermals are a godsend since I don't drive and I take mass transit. Long johns were a frigging annoyance, but now I wear ones that are almost silk-like. Much easier to move around in.
  Tue. 1/2/18 1:32pm Large Panties:

I hear you Pseu , the whole long john thing plus my large panties is rough . Bulges where I don’t want them.

toni should hang out with russell mael- when i saw sparks i was downright alarmed at the fact that the man looks 39. the only thing that betrayed that he's actually 69 were his hands.

@Large Panties: have you considered smaller panties?

I hate trying to clean humidifiers. Is it OK to put a little vinegar in there with the water when it's running or is that only for when it's resting?
Avatar    Tue. 1/2/18 1:47pm βrian:

We sprung for a whole-house humidifier. It's great but our windows are coated with ice.

i would imagine pleasing the goddess athena would be the best idea.

Side-eye riffs eh. Ok then.

Two weeks ago my one-cup-of-coffee maker decided to declare it was time to “de-scale”. Lots and lots of vinegar in the kitchen could be smelt in a week or more.

Apparently Lindsey gets outed as a bully and an egomaniac in Stevie Nicks's new book. But no one ever has a bad word to say about Christine. She's aces.

love this record he did with ann margret almost as much as i love nancy & lee
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/2/18 2:16pm BronwynB:

i feel bad bc i always talk about how rumours is this amazing smash hit album primarily driven by women's songwriting, but then all my favorite songs on it are lindsey's. oh well. he has a girl's name so maybe he's an honorary girl.
  Tue. 1/2/18 2:19pm melinda:

Honorary girl, haha
  Tue. 1/2/18 2:19pm McGreivey:

Somewhere or other once I heard one song from the Buckingham-McVie album, and I liked it. That's all I know enjoy that, though.
