littletinyfish: Dryer fire at Soapies Laundromat in Riverwest.
I came home from game night to all these flashing lights at both ends of my block. Sounds like they got everyone out, though.
I used Soapies once about four or five years ago and those dryers were ancient and disturbingly hot. I’m surprised they held out another five years, but am not surprised it came to this.
iena: It makes me sad because Soapies is such a happy name. Is it plural or possessive? Either way, happy.
I’d feel the same if any of the LaunDRY Lands here burned down.

It’s Soapies, plural, but I could easily imagine a depression-era hobo named Soapie who traded in his shoe stew for a shiny quarter which he used as a down payment for a row of brand new, coin operated laundry machines and then subsequently passed down three generations to the current owners, who still used those exact same machines today.
The good(ish?) news is that the building didn’t burn down, so it may just be a setback, and not the end of the legacy.
In the meantime, patrons will just have to take advantage of the Washing Well just down the street.
[EDIT: Scratch that. I’m hearing Soapies is a total loss.]

RIP Soapie, the lucky hobo with a laundry legacy gone up in smoke.

Did you know that a perfect photo exists? It’s this one, of the Nebraska state speech championship, taken by a guy I used to work with.

So, so proud of my alma mater.

There are a few things I’ve learned from commenting on the Birds Eye Vegetables Facebook page:

  • People love answering dumb questions. Over 900 people responded to the above post, all of them saying something like “pepper.” It’s like some wealthy lunatic asked, “How could I get hundreds of people to all type ‘pepper’ onto the internet like an absurdist art project?” And here we are, I guess.
  • Birds Eye Vegetables only Likes right answers. See that second screenshot? Do you see the two utter losers with no Likes? That’s because Birds Eye only rewards winners. “Orange pepper”? Have a Like! “Red bell pepper”? LikeTown, Population: You! “Cantalope”? Are you kidding me? Go fuck yourself, idiot.
  • Birds Eye will benevolently chime in to give the right answer if someone isn’t sure. And then people will reply to that reply, because nobody can stop Facebook commenters from shouting “pepper” all over this thread. They see that comment box and they think, “Oh look, a text box! I have to type pepper into that thing!!!”
  • Nobody in the Birds Eye thread really talks to other people, so I feel free to leave multiple comments now. Birds Eye never responds, and other people pretty much just type “red pepper” and continue on with their very important schedules. So, when all comments are viewed chronologically, I look like someone having an argument with an unrelenting army of people who only type “pepper” into comment boxes. I’m basically Neo fighting wave after wave of machines outside the Matrix, only instead of doing kung fu I’m talking about pumpkins a lot.
  • And lastly, this isn’t a thing I learned, really, but I appreciated Nick openly disagreeing with Our Lord and Master Birds Eye Vegetables re: whether that pepper is a pumpkin. I only hope the Birds Eye Facebook page admin is half as amused as we are, but sometimes I imagine some 80s cartoon villain smashing his metal fist against his big desk and shouting, “Curses! They called it a pumpkin again!”

Social media is such a weird place.

The Resistance is a must buy table top game. We ended up playing nine games of it in one evening and it is genuinely addictive. Only downside is that it requires at least five people and doesn’t get intriguing until eight people.

I have this game, but haven’t played it yet! I can’t get enough people together.
