On This Day

In 1792, the Postal Service Act, establishing the United States Post Office Department, was signed by President George Washington.

In 1809, the Supreme Court ruled that the power of the federal government is greater than that of any individual state.

In 1839, Congress prohibited dueling in the District of Columbia. (That must have been very effective.)

In 1872, the Metropolitan Museum of Art opened in New York City.

In 1931, Congress approved the construction of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge (their approval was required due to the bridge passing through Yerba Buena Island, a naval base).

In 1938, British Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden resigned in protest over Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain's decision to negotiate with Italian dictator Benito Mussolini.

In 1962, while aboard Friendship 7, John Glenn became the first American to orbit the earth, making three orbits in 4 hours, 55 minutes.

Answers for Feb 20 (2.00 / 13)
Are you usually early, late, or right on time?

I was 7 weeks early being born and I've been early ever since.

What is your favorite epithet that would not get you fined if you said it on TV?

I sometimes curse with made-up syllables, but of epithets in English.... I like "Balderdash" a lot.

If you could make up your own coat of arms, what would be on it?

Oh man.... I don't know. I know nothing about coats of arms. Are they supposed to be about a family's history? So, we could have people crossing the Atlantic in steerage?

Do you still have all your marbles?

I was born missing some.

Who is the best teacher you ever had?

I have to list more than one (considering how much school I've had!)

Early years:
Grace Kumar, who taught 5 and 6 year old kids at Gateway. I still remember a) Her hair (it was almost to the floor if unbraided) and b) Her saying "be gentle. That's a person" whenever we were too rough (verbally or physically).

Teens:
Malcolm Spaull, who taught me math at York Prep. He willingly let me skip several years in 10 minutes.

Helen Lambeth who taught social studies and taught me to look at a book's author, index and bibliography.

Grad school:
Herman Friedman taught me how to think statistically. He had lots of sayings like "If you're not surprised, you haven't learned anything" and (people who do research and stats will get this one) "stop p-ing on the research!"

What is your favorite bread or bread-type product?

Well, there are some REALLY GOOD chocolate croissants out there. Even the bad ones are pretty good.

What is your favorite sandwich?

Sandwich names tend to vary geographically, but in NYC my favorite is often called "An Italian hero" - ham, coppa, salami, etc. with lettuce and onions and hot peppers, oil and vinegar on a hero roll.

Pan bagnat is also wonderful if made right.  It's properly made with good canned tuna packed in olive oil. In some bizarre attempt to make it more authentic, some places round here make it with chunks of grilled tuna. Oy. Also, it needs good olives, not the junky black olives that come from a can and taste like nothing at all.  

"Most people worry about their own bellies and other people's souls when we all ought to worry about our own souls and others' bellies" Israel Salanter


re: croissants (2.00 / 8)
they have glazed ones here, like glazed donuts. Hurts-your-teeth sweet, but they are good. I don't want to find out how many calories are in that.  

[ Parent ]
I don't like things that sweet, usually (2.00 / 8)
but as to calories - probably not as many as you think. The calories in a food are computed by grams of protein, fat and carbohydrate. So, unless the glaze weighs a lot, it doesn't add many calories.

Where sugar really adds a ton of calories is in soda, which has a LOT of sugar.

[ Parent ]
Oddly enough (2.00 / 8)
donuts aren't that calorific. Bagels have way more. But donuts have zero food value, so every calorie counts as extra. :)

Yes because a donut weighs less than a bagel n/t (2.00 / 4)

Hi there! (2.00 / 11)
Are you usually early, late, or right on time? What is your favorite epithet that would not get you fined if you said it on TV? If you could make up your own coat of arms, what would be on it? Do you still have all your marbles? Who is the best teacher you ever had? What is your favorite bread or bread-type product? What is your favorite sandwich?

Late, early, on time:  I am early.  It is genetic

Epithet:  Jesus Christ!  I say it all the time.  My two year old has said it.  Among other things.

Coat of arms:  some knitting needles and a big bottle of wine

Marbles:  mostly

Best teacher:  Mr. Moser, I took two years of chemistry in high school and he was my man.  He nudged me toward biochem and that was my college major before going off to vet school.  Such a great teacher.  There were lots of great teachers at my high school in Alaska but he was so awesome and Ioved the subject matter so he wins.

Favorite bread:  I make French bread.  It is yummy with a little butter and some good soup.

Sandwich:  BLT. Totally.  Our traditional family birthday dinner is BLTs and champagne.  :)


I love your coat of arms! (2.00 / 8)
I think you might be related to jlms qkw!

Mine would have two sourdough baguettes instead of the knitting needles, and a nice wedge of extremely sharp cheddar, but would retain the wine. Red, of course. ;-)

Yes, jlms qkw and I share some interests don't we? (2.00 / 8)
Bread and cheese on a coat of arms would be great.  And the deep red of the wine would really set the colors off well.  :)

but i don't want a coat of arms (2.00 / 7)
i want a sweater.  ;-)

A friend of mine had a daughter. One Sunday morning she comes downstairs and says, very calmly

Daddy, don't burn the fucking pancakes.

Right you are (2.00 / 12)
My two year old asks every morning if we have a showing.  He told my mom that "our house is on the market".  Pays attention to every word I say though his actions may speak differently.

My daughter when she was about two was jumping on my bed and told me she was "going fucking crazy"!

That was the day they gave me my mother of the year award.

Do you still have all your marbles? Who is the best teacher you ever had? What is your favorite bread or bread-type product? What is your favorite sandwich?

I have to work really hard to be patient enough to not arrive too early.

OK, now, this is like being on Inside the Actors Studio, and you're all ready for the Bernard Pivot questions, and Lipton asks you about your favorite non curse word?  I'm not ready!  Durn yore hide.

A book and some sort of musical design.

I was going to ask which kind of marbles, but it doesn't matter.  Of course not.

I would have said Mr. Stevens my 9th grade algebra teacher, but that was before he punched that kid at the pep rally.  So maybe Mrs. O'Neil from senior English.  She was a bit odd, but I now realize that that is a good thing in an English teacher.  Oh, wait!  Scratch all that.  It's Mrs. Fretz, the French teacher.  Very fun she was.

Favorite bread product would have to be something sweet.  Pumpkin bread.  Banana bread.

A Reuben!!!!!!!

I'm lucky.


My dad is early like you (2.00 / 11)
I am normal early.  He is crazy early and it weirds people out.  My mom always laughs about arriving at parties before the hosts are even dressed.  Then he leaves early too.  It has taken my husband (who is from a family of late  people who never leave) a while to get used to him.  He is a strange bird.

Lulu is more of a precisely on time person, (2.00 / 11)

[ Parent ]
I always leave home early (2.00 / 8)
in case of delays, but if I arrive too early I'll go get coffee or something. Unless I'm going to the doctor, early there can be a major advantage at getting in and out more quickly.

re: Vanderbilt? I admit to owning several pairs. The ones I've bought seem more geared to curves, not stick figures, and I like them.

I couldn't sleep last night, so I watched TV. I caught a movie on TMC called The Smiling Lieutenant. They're doing 31 days of Oscars. It was a delightful movie, and I was amazed they had a song called Jazz Up Your Lingerie in 1931!

Almost always on time.

My epithets are so ordinary. LOL. One of the first ones I learned as a kid was "shit ass." No one says that anymore.

One of the advantages of being disorderly is that one is constantly making exciting discoveries. - A.A. Milne


[ Parent ]
yup Maurice Chevalier (2.00 / 7)
From Answers.com:

Maurice Chevalier plays a 19th century Viennese lieutenant, conducting an affair with sexy violinist Claudette Colbert. While publicly flirting with Colbert, Chevalier is spotted by a dowdy princess (Miriam Hopkins), who thinks that the lieutenant's wink was meant for her. Forced to marry the Princess, Chevalier despairs at her lack of charm. But good-hearted Colbert takes the princess aside, dolls her up, and instructs her how to bewitch--and keep--her man. Chevalier is enchanted by the "new" princess, while Colbert, who will have no trouble finding someone else to keep her warm and comfortable, cheerfully sashays out of his life. Long thought lost, The Smiling Lieutenant was rediscovered in an East European vault in the 1970s. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

The non-verbal acting was outstanding.

It might have been easier (2.00 / 7)
if I asked what bread people don't like. I certainly can't think of many.

Those look like mom jeans now, but back then I don't think they were.

I wear inappropriate ones, too, just in that I refuse to wear anything high waisted (but I won't wear too low either) and I like them skinny or straight legged.

my favorite pair of jeans (2.00 / 6)
were Lee's straight legs. Fit like a glove. Back then, anyways. Doesn't fit anymore, so I donated to Goodwill. I think I'm wearing that in one of my pictures on FB.  

[ Parent ]
I have a drawer full... (2.00 / 6)
...of favorite jeans (Levi's classic 501s) that don't fit me anymore. I am hoping that I'll lose weight after surgery and be able to fit in them again, so I haven't yet donated them to Goodwill. I think my hopes aren't entirely groundless, since I've only put on most of this added weight since not being able to exercise over the past year or so. But we'll see.

When I was 40 years old I had a 30" waist, same as in high school. Now I'm somewhere near 42", which shocks me. I'd settle for something in between! :-)

[ Parent ]
good luck with the weight loss (2.00 / 6)
and, of course, the surgery. As for me, weight loss is always possible as long as I can commit to it, but I've given up on the idea that I'll be able to get back to the weight I was before. Part of the reason is I'm too old to give a shit now. LOL. I need to lose some pounds for health reasons, not vanity.  

[ Parent ]
Thanks, raina. (2.00 / 6)
I did manage to shed 15 lbs over the past two months, which isn't bad given zero exercise. But somehow the 15 lbs came back unannounced. Probably due to my recent addiction to diner breakfasts - but that's not going to be a problem anymore for awhile, LOL!

[ Parent ]
Yeah, all that "designer" rot. (2.00 / 6)
I was against that from the beginning, and when I did get a pair of designer jeans the first thing I would do was remove the label. I didn't want my ass providing free advertising. ;-)

I had to stop with the label removing when I went to work for Guess Jeans in the corporate office. The Marciano brothers most certainly would have had an issue with it.

The T is necessary. (2.00 / 9)
But it has to be good, which is rare in California. We get the shittiest tomatoes in our grocery stores. You have to grow your own or hit the farmer's market.

The L is not really that necesary, I think it's just for color. ;-)

I often make BLTs... (2.00 / 6)
...without either B or L. Tomato on toast with mayo and brown mustard is one of my favorite sammies. And when the neighborhood farmers market has tomatoes, they're big enough (and meaty enough) that one thick slice covers the whole piece of toasted bread. Yum!

[ Parent ]
another favorite (2.00 / 6)
is just sliced tomatoes, and mayo on both sides of bread, salt and plenty of pepper. They're only good if they're homegrown tomatoes.

I'm planning on growing 3 or 4 varieties. I already bought a Cherokee Purple seedling for 99 cents. I see tomato sammies in my future.  


[ Parent ]
I do prefer the crunch of toasted bread with my tomatoes. (2.00 / 7)

You are lucky that you can grow tomatoes. I tried on my back porch, but it faces north and gets zero direct sunlight, even on the relatively few days that aren't foggy.

I about goggled at your comment until I read the last sentence. (2.00 / 4)
Tomatoes , loblolly pine (I call 'em toilet paper trees) and kudzu are the only things that grow with reckless enthusiasm here in Alabama .I think anyone can grow tomatoes here with no effort - even after a rare cold winter a few volunteeer plants will pop up from the warming ground of the patch as soon as April decides to stay. Any variety , any size , all almost overloaded with flavor and a true wonder to eat whether picked from the vine , dubiously cleaned on shirttail and eaten sun - warm , or sliced and spread on bread with whatever you gotta. I like way too thick layers of tomato with Swiss cheese slices , too much bacon , crisp lettuce washed and kept in a bowl in fridge with ice & water overnight to get crispy as residents of Hades , ground black pepper  , and a lot of mayonnaise on toasted whole wheat brown bread.I have to smush this down a little to get it into my mouth , even at the bread corner. I never screw up any more and make just one - the first demands an encore.

I had to mention this BBT that was on last night (2.00 / 7)
Sheldon will do anything to have Wolowitz deliver his paper to Stephen Hawking.

I love BBT! :-)

Just watched the Valentine's Day one, and I almost peed my pants when Sheldon gifted adding Amy as an emergency contact.

I sure like them - got intrigued while roaming around B&N looking (2.00 / 5)
for something to cheer me up. THey were listed under rural acoustic blues or something odd like that , close to where I had found Keb Mo' , an instant favorite of mine. Ain't got no one to introduce them to , nobody to listen to music with.

I'm not sure... (2.00 / 5)
...about a coat of arms, but I do have a tattoo that's a heraldic device: the Thistle of Scotland. It reflects both my Scots heritage and my given name, so I thought it was an appropriate bit of body art. :-)

Bread and Marbles (2.00 / 8)
Are you usually early, late, or right on time? Yes.

What is your favorite epithet that would not get you fined if you said it on TV? Oh, frick!

If you could make up your own coat of arms, what would be on it? A book, a quill pen, a cat and a typewriter.

Do you still have all your marbles? No, but I have pretzel M&Ms in my candy dish that look like them.

Who is the best teacher you ever had? Earliest best was Mr. Gaub, 7th or 8th grade geography. There were later bests too.

What is your favorite bread or bread-type product? ::Jill lets out her favorite string of words you can't say on TV:: I tried to photograph the amazing unsliced chewy harvest grain bread I eat every day and my camera died. Even good batteries won't light it up any more.

What is your favorite sandwich?
If I have good farmers-market tomatoes, that.


Let there be light. Then let there be a cat, a cocktail, and a good book.


I liked your answers , JG in MD. NT (2.00 / 5)

About those questions , lemme see... (2.00 / 4)

1. Was once usually early - now have almost no schedule and haven't worn a watch in years.I'll get to vet appointment tomorrow likely a few minutes early by setting cell phone alarm.
2. Been on a campaign of cleaning my sewer mouth up for a couple years now - but those left are non PC and refer to my x in most unflattering ways that are all deadly accurate.
3. No coat of arms. Just not me , not at all.
4. I've thrown some away , discerning that they were slag , after all.
5. Dr. Michael Nielsen ,of Geology at University Of Alabama at Birmingham. Taught me some important things about life and being a person as well as the damned rocks.
6.Anything but white goo - bread.
7. My favorite sandwich is one eaten with company eating their sandwich. So , most recently that would be a McNasty's double 1/4 pounder w/cheese , shared with Tsula. Generally that is emergency food only - but the comapany made the food good. Her enthusiasm made the day good - as it makes the years liveable.
