I just came across this gem of Buffista parenting way back in Natter and had to COMM(A) it:
I found out my daughter's class is covering forces and gravity. I was trying to tell how gravity is really cool and is the warping of time and space. I also tried telling how time slows down for observers in higher gravity. She seemed really unimpressed by all this. I did tell her to stick with the class answer of 'force that attracts objects to each other' rather than 'warping of space-time' on any tests.
erikaj: But I'm part Irish-American with a tortured soul and a psycho family
Shir: Oh, I'm just Jewish. I guess that's pretty much wraps it up the same.

What mainstream term would one use to categorize Violent Femmes? Alternative Rock?
College Rock? Post-Punk?
I don't think the term "Alternative" was in use during their heyday....
I think I've heard them labeled as Folk-Punk back in the day.
Close enough. You could also go for American Indie.

I think they prefer "Native Alternitan"
Thanks for catching that in full, Laga!
Someone reassure me that having a cavity doesn't mean I've failed as a person.

I know a few people who are about to have holes in their heads.
No context TomW:
Applesauce is pretty cool.
I mean, it's all fruity and mushy and tangy. Goes great with pork, or you can just stir it into yogurt for a quick and easy dessert.
That's what they should make a show about: applesauce. Fox, call me!
Though, honestly? Sometimes I feel what's been culturally appropriated from me most is my outrage.
Sad but true, in Heroes:
I am stoned on cold medicine.
And yet, making as much sense as "Heroes" volumes two and three.
In Bitches, where fashion wins against exercise/green traveling:
I keep idly thinking about getting a tricycle (I never learned to ride a bike and I don't want to start now), but then I glumly contemplate bike helmets, find nothing that I like, and give up on the whole notion.
