We scan barcodes and input data into an Excel spreadsheet (when we have power) and then copy/paste from there. It is pretty easy.
But when the power goes out, it is back to pencil and paper for us.
How do you check out books “the old fashioned way” at your library?
Holy crap, I’m stealing this idea.
We just use pencils and paper, and it takes forever.
So my mom and I have been working the same waitress job for 5-6 years now. She had been waitressing years before, but this is recently. Anyway, about… 15 minutes ago this guy she waited on left and told her to take care. Just that. Prior to this she had talked to him about Italy. Her people are from Florence, this and that, and she said she’s never been. She’s got 8 years of art education and she’s working a waitress job. It’s pretty… Sad and disappointing, I guess. Her and my father divorced 6 years ago and she hasn’t had a real job ever. Just been stuck in a small town she’s not from.
This man who we have never seen before tipped her 1000 dollars for a trip to Italy. Walked out, not another word.
…you know. Just when I start to lose faith in humanity….Hm.
This is amazing.
Costco CEO Craig Jelinek supports raising the minimum wage.
Costco announced record profits today, averaging $10,000 in profit per employee compared to $7,400 at Walmart.
The secret to Costco’s success is paying employees well, providing benefits, and giving them an opportunity to unionize.
So large corporations’ excuses that treating & paying workers well would damage profits are all a crock of shit.
brb, off to get a Costco card.

WISHBONE WAS SO LEGIT.
you know it
I learned so much from this motherfucking dog
there are so many books I’ve never read but know the plot to thanks to this dog.
wishbone is literally how i have any knowledge of the ‘classics’
and he’s my hero
This makes me want to dress my doggie up in many outfits, but I’m a good mommy, so I won’t.
what’s the story wishbone?
I was actually just talking to my sister about Wishbone.
I was like, “Wishbone had great stories!”
And she was like, “And it was hilarious because when he was dressed up, everyone pretended he was a people!”
And then we started talking about 90’s cartoon programming, and it was awesome.
I’ve been wanting to make homemade granola bars for a long time. It’s nice to know exactly what’s in your food, especially with something that you eat for energy and a healthy snack.
I’ve been intimidated up to this point by the large amount of ingredients people put in them. I just wanted a basic granola bar: simple to make and inexpensive.
If you want to make them…
What you’ll need:
1 1/2 cups of rolled oats
1 cup chopped almonds (or other nuts)
1 cup dried cranberries (or other dried fruit)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup honey
What you’ll need to do:
Preheat oven to 350. Mix all ingredients. Spread into a well-greased pan. Bake for 10-20 minutes, depending on your crunch preference (the longer it cooks, the crunchier it gets). Let the granola cool before you cut it, or it will fall apart.
doing this soon!

The Epic Reads team rules massively…
This seems so much more enjoyable than going to the gym.
There goes my excuse for not owning any free weights…
this is one of my favorite parts in the whole movie <3
For the last three decades many Americans have puzzled over a system that gives an R to a movie in which a women is carved up by a chainsaw and an NC-17 to one that shows a woman sexually pleasured. From such ratings one might conclude that sexual violence against women is OK for American teenagers to see, but that they must be 18 to see consensual sex. What message does this send to the kids the MPAA presumably means to protect?
“You have to question a cinematic culture which preaches artistic expression, and yet would support a decision that is clearly a product of a patriarchy-dominant society, which tries to control how women are depicted on screen. The MPAA is okay supporting scenes that portray women in scenarios of sexual torture and violence for entertainment purposes, but they are trying to force us to look away from a scene that shows a woman in a sexual scenario which is both complicit and complex. It’s misogynistic in nature to try and control a woman’s sexual presentation of self. I consider this an issue that is bigger than this film.”
-Ryan Gosling on the controversy around the rating of his film ‘Blue Valentine’
This is pretty much what it looks like every time my partner and I set foot in a photo booth.
