#6 is a piece of work, she manages to blame both the Evil Doctor and her husband for the condition. I guess they're the reason that the shepherd's purse didn't work! *eyeroll*

Once the crock is finished cooking it will keep your food at a nice safe holding temperature until you are home (or awake).
I gotta try this recipe out. I didn't grow up eating chicken and dumplings but it just looks so good.

He's not even fired! He's "on administrative leave" for six weeks. I am sure there will be some crocodile tears, another non-apology apology, and the ObYesMen saying "he's all better now" and then he'll be back. People calling for his resignation have been both laid off and fired.
Meanwhile the board (which might or might not be able to fire him ... unsure, because a lot of the legals got changed along the way to favor Mark) are closing down campuses and laying off staff due to a shortfall in revenue, which they blame on "negative media attention" - instead of, oh, anything their special snowflake selves may have done or said.

We also got a lot of comments and/or nitpicking/oneupmanship about "authenticity". Every time someone mentioned Cuban sandwiches on the group for years, the old hands would snicker, because there was an EPIC flamewar about "Authentic Cuban Sandwiches!" in the group's early days.

Proverbs 31 is about a woman who gets it done both at home and in business. It's used by the fundies to try to keep wimminz in the home doing domestic things, where they're controllable.

Wonkette definitely saved my sanity during the 2008 election cycle, especially after Caribou Barbie got on the ticket and _shit got really weird_. (The 2012 cycle was equally as weird, but I was mostly following baseball that year because my teams got super hot, so I wasn't around as much.)
Thanks to Our Editrix, the fabulous staff and alumni, and to the Wonkerati for making this one of the few places on the Interwebz where you NEED to read the comments.

(I'm a California product, so not inclined to think much of Texans running off their mouths. Humph.)
