Saw this in the grocery store for the first time ever yesterday.
Postum is a powdered coffee substitute…. The caffeine-free beverage mix was originally created by company founder C. W. Post in 1895 and marketed as a healthy alternative to coffee. Post was a Seventh-day Adventist and a student of Dr. John Harvey Kellogg who felt caffeine was unhealthy, and thus created an alternative of mostly wheat and molasses…. Postum is still popular among those who believe coffee to be unhealthy, or who avoid caffeinated beverages for religious reasons, such as Mormons. The ingredients in Postum are wheat bran, wheat, molasses, and corn dextrin.
In a campaign that will make its debut Saturday, 18 women step up to a 15-foot-long megaphone with a 3-foot-wide mouthpiece to deliver a unified message: We’re athletes, so ditch the female modifier.
I cant’ decide if I like that or not. Cappie Pondexter and Diana Taurasi make a cameo in one of them. See the ads.
I went ahead and installed Movable Type 4. The lovely Carla bailed me out in a dark moment, so it should be at least functional. I’ll be going through the usual fixing of the feeds and reorganization of the sidebars and it looks like I may have jacked up my archive mapping, but… oh well. You don’t care. And I don’t think I care that much, either. So I guess now would be a good time to play with that since I’ve already committed to breaking all my permalinks.
Just so you know.
As long as you know your prescription and can take a few measurements, you can get glasses on the internet for $65 or less. Usually lots less. But not if your prescription’s too strong or wacky or you really feel a need to try them on first. Although for $25, I wouldn’t be too upset if I ordered a pair that ended up not looking so hot and had to get another one.
All things LinkedIn.
After I read that Andy was going to be liveblogging the Democratic Candidates’ LGBT Issues Debate, Missy and I decided to go to Pi and watch it. The bar was pretty full, though not totally uncomfortably packed. Good to see. They streamed the feed from Logo’s website and had it up on the big screen. We found a spot in the back of the room and, aside from this queeny personal space invader, we were able to see just fine. The crowd got restless and it was a little hard to hear towards the end.
I guess I didn’t read up very well on the format. “Debate” implies that all the participants are standing around together, are asked the same questions, and have the opportunity to respond directly to each other. Instead each candidate had 15 minutes onstage by themselves. Ultimately I liked that format better. The panelists’ questions were tailored to the candidates, while still giving each one time to give their stump speech (and time to stumble over themselves).
I was pleasantly surprised to see j. brotherlove live-Twittering as well. It actually helped to follow along and crystallize the whole thing, because with the noise in the room I couldn’t always hear. And we had to leave early to go to a Fringe show. His thoughts and Andy’s thoughts are pretty similar to my own. Kucinich is the shit, but is way too far to the left to ever get elected. Bill Richardson was meh. Mike Gravel is an old white guy. Barack Obama was mostly good, but not perfect. Hillary Clinton was the most polished and played the best politician. John Edwards didn’t quite make his message clear and needs more practice.
Andy’s got more blog reaction at Minnesota Monitor. Malinda Lo covered it at AfterEllen. DiversityInc asks Which Democrat offended LGBT voters? Who won the debate?
