First, let me take a moment to say you are one prolific group of mo'fos. Seriously. This is my first dump and hot damn that was a lot of reading. Good stuff though. Needs more cat poop.

Secondly, before you sharpen any pitchforks or fire up the ole torches, I will say again that this is my first dump so let's all be gentle. Also, I've been rock climbing for 6 hours and my fingers hurt so any typos and/or ommissions are to be blamed on that.

Now to business!

Let's talk food.

Cassiebearrawr would like to know if it's okay to drink beer for breakfast, and I say obviously. They wouldn't make that shit maple flavored if it wasn't intended for pancakes. I Am Calm, And Problematic is wondering about drink drank drunking at lunch. I say obviously. They wouldn't make it with wheat if it weren't supposed to go with sandwiches. If anyone has any thoughts on booze at second breakfast, elevenses, tea or dinner speak up now you lot of alcoholic hobbits.

InTheWeeds continues her hilarious series of Fine Dining Bros, for all your quail eggs needs. FlossieLou hosts a soup swap, for all your broth needs. OneLittleDetail wants to know how you chipotle, for all your "yes I know the guac is extra GIVEITNOW!" needs. LizTaylorsEarrings hates cows for all your got milk needs. Shermometer has controversial opinions about thin mints. TEACH THE CONTRAVERSY. And speaking of Girl Scout Cookies, we collectively bought 432 boxes.

Speaking of food, and aren't we always, let's talk grocery stores.
KeepCalmCarry on wants to know if Trader Joe's's the worth the fuss, and I would like to know how that double apostrophe possessive contraction worked out for everyone. EisenBolan has some thoughts about shopping carts. And FreeSampleThief on the latest with her FoodBankBlog. And for the final word in noms, I refer you to NomNom83.

And now for something completely different. Abrupt change in tone ahoy!
How are you feeling today GT? Let's talk mental health...
NYCyclist compiled this list of mental health resources and I cannot boost the signal hard enough. Please do not be ashamed to seek health if you need it.

So it looks like we are having some healthy conversations about the role that crisis and fatigue are playing in this community. Check out these two perspectives from Sirdam Tychotronic and Snacktastic . Then wash it down with a cool glass of positivity from Cloverleaf. Or wash it down with some more breakfast beer.

Wait, why am I suddenly chanting "one of us, one of us, one of us" must be all this hivemindness. Like for example how our glorious PubMedThread has been found. That's right newcomers, get your inside joke on. Also, several people would like to point out that KINJA IS AN ASSHOLE. And also there is a traitor in our midst. You disgust me with your cleanliness.
