  • The Premium version adds no value to my use of MFP but I'd pay a fee to keep my Newsfeed. And it was an opportunity to hit me with at least one ad so there's potential for revenue there.
  • Same. Ironically, I only learned of the Newsfeed's impending demise from a friend's post on.... wait for it.... my Newsfeed. Irony #2 is that there are a few people on this thread who I probably should have friended long ago but, gee, there isn't any point in doing so now.
  • Well said! I have a small, carefully selected group of friends on here and few have any connection to one another. The newsfeed is one of the features I use daily and enjoy seeing updates of what my friends are doing. I rarely have time for the boards these days. I was hoping for enhancements to the feed so I could finally…
  • A 3 lb bag of lemons. I'd have preferred just a couple but they had no loose bulk ones. I don't even like lemon. They're for my dog. She's an incorrigible counter surfer who has managed to snag a ton of stuff when I'm out of the house, even though nothing is left on the front 2/3 of any of the counters. She's also managed…
  • Passed up a new purse yesterday at lunch. Leather. All kinds of compartments and pockets to keep my crap organized. Big enough to throw in more crap, even my tablet, which would come in handy next month when I travel. (Then my current purse annoyed me again today, like it has ever since I started using it, so I went back…
  • I started with a very basic fitbit, the flex, then upgraded to the first Charge. Went through a few more upgrades with Charges over the years, my last one was the 5. It stopped giving me movement reminders and goal achievement notifications (which is half the fun of the darned things) within warranty so I got a…
  • This. As COGypsy says, fillers. Or fat injections. Those seem to have a longer lifespan than fillers which break down quite quickly and need to be redone. However, fat injections are going to be fairly pricey since first they harvest the fat from other areas of the body using liposuction.
  • 4 boxes of K cups. Which are still sitting in my truck. They probably need to come indoors.
  • Hysterectomy (uterus only) age 33 and I did notice that the symptoms I had associated with PMS gradually diminished afterwards. Prior to that I could totally relate to the wallpaper paste post... I found myself scrounging the cupboards for anything and everything to fill the void... stale crackers, tubs of frosting,…
  • Tomorrow is my last day of work till January (that's definitely not the irk part). I am trying to do all my coworker gifts/cards to bring in tomorrow, and my dad keeps texting me. Worse, he keeps texting me to test his texting because some of them are failing, and he just doesn't grasp that sometimes technology lets you…
  • I hear Wendys has pumpkin spice frosties. Check to make sure this is also a Canada thing and not just US. It is. Stop by Wendys at lunch. Note that their vegetarian options suck so the only reason I go there is for a frosty and that's rare. "We don't have pumpkin spice beverages at this location".
  • I don't sync my Fitbit and manually log my exercise but I generally work on a TDEE method from my Fitbit's daily total, which seems to be pretty accurate for me. I am not trying to lose weight, however (currently need to gain). I'll deviate from the TDEE approach when I've had a high-exercise day like several hours of snow…
  • Yes, I would tell. I'd want the SO to know how little loyalty his friend had, and why I'd want to avoid that person's company in future. With the caveat that it would have to be very, very blatant "hitting on" because I'm pretty oblivious to that sort of thing and I'd just think that the friend was trying to be nice to me…
  • That's my first thought too. All those rampant hormones. Although female dogs are kinda notorious for having difficulty getting along with one another, more so than male/female or male/male. A couple of the dog schools here have canine behaviour specialists who will do private consultations and I'd hire one asap. That's…
  • From USADA.org: Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators (SARMs) are a class of therapeutic compounds that have similar anabolic properties to anabolic steroids, but with reduced androgenic (producing male characteristics) properties. As an example, the androgen receptor is activated by binding androgens, such as…
  • I'd LOVE to see this. Not sure why every other manufactured food and beverage is required to have a nutrition label, including restaurant meals, but alcohol products are exempt (I'm in Canada). My father is an alcoholic. He is also obsessive about nutrition, particularly sodium and sugar content. When he was hospitalized…
  • My own carelessness yet again. So I have a puppy that is chewing everything except the 12 chew toys lying around for that purpose. She particularly likes wood. I have some of that deterrent bitter spray left over from the last puppy so I've been anointing all her chew spots with little effect. She started in on the room…
  • Sorry to hear this. My deepest sympathies for your loss. :'(
  • Same experience as a non-drinker. I've actually been told that I wasn't invited to certain events because "well, you don't drink..." like "what's the point in inviting you?" Note that I am not judgey or preachy about drinking but there are some women in the circle who are very hard drinkers and I think they fear being…
  • This! DNA evidence has also been used to exonerate criminals who were falsely convicted. My only experience is with buying one of those ancestry test kits, mainly for some health markers that it would test for. All they knew about me is that I am a middle-aged woman living in Canada and the result was my ancestry is 99.8%…
  • Well thank you for a super argument for not eating undercooked eggs. "I'm not picky, I'm just maximizing my protein" :D
  • Irked at myself. I'm treasurer for a non-profit community group and I have somehow managed to lose our ATM card. It's only good for deposits because we have a two-signer account but our branch has horrible hours so I could at least drop in money without wasting a lunch hour to do it in person.
  • No worries, I can scroll quickly past the gross stuff :D Forgot I do poached eggs a lot too. In the microwave. In fact, I've done them this way so often that I'm on my third microwave poacher doohickey. This may form part of tomorrow night's supper...
  • Well done. I can't stand eating anything snot-textured so they have to be thoroughly cooked. If I'm eating out I usually order scrambled to be safe. At home I do over easy. I don't put ketchup or salt on eggs. In my dotage I've also gotten weird about food mixing so I definitely don't want those yolks running into anything…
  • Yes! That's it! I'm pretty sure I grabbed it on sale much cheaper than that, it was a total impulse buy. It's so tiny and cute. Battery life has been phenomenal. It sits beside my usual food scale and I've occasionally used it when I'm weighing multiple accumulations of ingredients in cooking. I also used it for splitting…
  • In buying a cute little purse-size portable scale I ended up with a drug scale :D It has .1 gram readability (can't swear to accuracy as I've never tested it) and 500 g capacity. Brand is Gen Tech. I use it mostly for measuring things like herbs/spices. Despite apparently wanting a portable scale, it's never left my…
  • My current arrangement suits me fine. I work at an office desk job but get up and walk a lot to use the printer/copier, go speak with someone, check my mail bin, and I make a point of walking to the furthest bathroom downstairs. My commute is 10 - 15 minutes and most of it is on main roads that are priority for plowing so…
  • I'm not super keen on being touched by strangers, even if it's supposed to feel nice, so a massage isn't my idea of fun. I need to use super mega hypoallergenic products to avoid contact dermatitis so no facial, thanks. And I'd destroy a professional manicure too quickly to make it worthwhile.
  • There is a nose on my mother's side of the family that is, to borrow Spring's description, a very large hooked nose straight out of Brothers Grimm. It also came with a deviated septum, as younger generations learned. It mostly ran through the males and my mother didn't get it but she did have a female cousin who got it. If…
  • Walking. I need to get out of the office and walk every day at lunch to recharge and de-people for an hour. Walking with the dog evenings and weekends. Or just hanging with the dog in general.
