PRO I opened a can of tomato soup without little droplets flying everywhere and looking like chunky blood splatter!
CON I’m eating a can of tomato soup, alone, for dinner.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to cry into my already salty can of tomato soup.
Well when I was growing up, we had to deal with fish being the main thing on the menu on Fridays because of some weird edict from thousands of years ago. I’d have preferred just vegetables, thank you.
Also I think most kids will tell you that with the quality of food at public schools (from the same companies that provide them to many prisons), it’s not like they’re going to be able to tell the difference anyway.
In fact, now that I recall, I used to avoid the meat items because they were always disgusting.
This is so, so stupid and ugly.

Dug this Burt Reynolds movie tonight on low rent cable, and the end credits song by Jerry Whitman (“Way Down Under”) is my kind of tune.
Dunkin Donuts should hire me to do their social media! I think I’d do a great job.
Q:The improv company I'm in has a team of 7-8 who are responsible for festival shows and a big monthly show at one of my city's biggest theatres. Half of them are selfish, ungenerous performers but are consistently given stage time because they're the senior members. It's really demoralizing as a newer performer (5 years) to see terrible, under-rehearsed work rewarded, especially when attendance at our shows has flagged over the last few years, but how do you tell the house team that they suck?
You don’t. Worry about your own work and move on when there’s a chance. It’s not your show, so don’t try to direct it from your head.
Do the people on the team share your opinion? Probably not, so don’t worry about them. Does the audience like the shows? If not, the show won’t survive. But if the audience does — which I suspect they do — then try and figure out what the show is doing right.
You sound like people who complain that SNL is a bad show. How can that show be rewarded with its long term success when it (pick one: focuses so much on dumb pop culture, caters to a young audience, runs popular characters into the ground with little variation)? Rather than figuring out why it is that SNL is the only show to have survived on American television for more than 5 years (ah, it focuses on the pop culture everyone is talking about, it’s one of the few shows with talent catering to a young audience, it repeats its popular characters).
What I’m saying: You’re being too harsh. The judge who lives in your brain is being given too much power. It will turn on you in times of low confidence and you won’t be able to recover and you’ll quit. Practice compassion and empathy. This paragraph is perhaps too new agey to be accepted at face value, but I suggest you take this advice if you want to be happy doing creative things.
Needed to read this today.
Then and now
But notice how this headline from the civil rights era is more sympathetic to the victims than most you’d see today.
