Welcome, your pudding and comfort brand shoes await. Come, sit by us.

Hubby and I determined we were old when we recounted how infrequent we listened to hip hop radio (mumble rap, how is this a thing?) and the new uptick in our desire for satellite radio stations like "Soultown," "Backspin (classic hip hop)," and the 80's channel or sometimes called "Yacht Rock" during the summer.

This does not excuse Franken's behavior if he took liberties with his accuser that he shouldn't have, or if he acted inappropriately without her consent, but folks on Twitter have found several pictures (and video) from that USO show and others the accuser attended where it looks like bawdy behavior between comics and those in their orbit was part of the atmosphere....and it also looks as if she may have participated in giving others unwanted sexual physical contact herself...or was it all in fun? I don't know. I'm not sure how I feel about it, but it certainly may lend some credibility to Franken's statement that he doesn't remember some of the event the way that she does. An investigation is a good idea. It seems possible that he may have been a jerk among jerks, but not a serial abuser.

Anyway, curious what other's think. Here's the Twitter thread. The video and pics can be found there.

Some not rich person should write a self-help book for these poor, rich souls.

1) Don't spend millions in NYC on a goddamn two bedroom apartment.
2) Fuck off. Give me your money, because you don't know what to do with it.

I'm relatively new to chronic pain. Mine just started last year and it's been hell. Some days all I could do is stay in bed or stay sitting trying not to hurt. On those days I'm quiet because I fear I'll snap at everyone, especially my kid. Then the pain recedes some and I feel more like myself and I can function again, smile again, play a silly game with the boy again. I live for those days. I live for days when I can sleep soundly without too much of an issue. And I try not to let the days where I...just can't...get me down. It's hard work -- the not giving in. So many days in the last year, I did, but then I pulled myself up and out of the pain fog, managed the pain the best I could and then put the effort in making my kid laugh.

I know that I can't live in the past-- it's too frustrating,so I try my level best to be in the here and now, and always hope that today and tomorrow will be better, be something, and don't take the good and great moments for granted. Not always easy, but if I fight everyday...that's something, or so I tell myself.

Sweet potato. I can always tell the difference and pumpkin never quite cuts it. Pumpkin gets too much shine anyway. It's a celebrity from September through March.Sweet potato just sits around waiting for Thanksgiving.

Pumpkin pie or sweet potato pie?
