I know, right? I was shocked last week when they did it. Signs all over the place. "Welcome to the New World Order" It didn't sound good to me, so I just kept driving.

I'm sorry to tell you, that was part of it. EVERYTHING smells like pancakes, now. Could be worse, I suppose?

I made a puppy run for the shelter this afternoon. But now I have the smell of puppy poop in my nose. Bleh. It was hard to eat dinner. sad.gif

I haven't been here for a while. When did the name change from "Slut for Power" to "Yak for Power" happen? New ownership?

The change occurred in late 2012. Huddler had nothing to do with it. There was a general consensus among the users, though not unanimous, that slut sounded a touch off-putting- maybe even intimidating- especially for new members signing up. We kept the "for power" part, because of its long-standing, time-honored tradition.

 

Skylark, except for Michael, I think you're the active member who's been around longer than anybody! Glad you're back! :up:

Yeah, I've noticed more newer people have been joining in lately, I think the last title just left people confused. I know it confused the heck out of me when I first joined! I was like is this some kind of sex club or slut competition or what? laugh.gif

It's about the same here, I guess that makes sense since we're not that far from each other. I'm off to get an iced soy americano and lay in the sun with my cat. sunny.gif

Tomorrow I'm tabling for my animal rights group at my shelter's annual festival. It's the one time of year when I really turn on my Veganomosity full force and don't even try to make nice. evil.gif

Gotcha. I know I was confused by the name when I first joined, because the name was a carryover from a different board on which many of the founding members were active. Or that is the story I heard, anyway. It's good to be back! I'm glad to see it's not all new-to-me faces around here.

So, back to regularly scheduled post-slutting, or yakking as it is now called.

My boyfriend lost his job today. He's been at this temp job for three months and had hope of being hired in until they gave him some pathetic excuses about cutting back. So we're back to living on my income alone.

I might have just purchased an espresso machine.

It might have cost more than I'll admit.

I'm in law school. I feel that justifies caffine, always.

Good to see you!!! And sorry about the job. sad.gif Job losses suck.

The festival was a great event. The day was spectacular and the band was surprisingly good. We didn't get a lot of traffic at our table, but that wasn't very surprising. Gosh, there were a lot of dogs!!!
