And also from Japan, a complete home breaker

Going separate ways

Going separate ways

New home decorating fad urges followers to go through house “and throw away anything that doesn’t bring you joy”.

The KonMari craze has been (literally) sweeping the world. The result? People’s lives have become streamlined, more fulfilling and happier. Bloggers and lifestyle consultants are hooked.

So KonMari? It’s the process of going through everything you own and asking: ‘Does this spark joy?’ If the answer is no, then the item is binned.

Husbands, wives, children; they’re all gonna go.

Somewhere, wives are going to become redundant

Nobu’s new laundress.
(Walt’s got one on order)

On the heels of sex robots, now comes one that can wash, dry and fold laundry.

Of course, there are also robots around that mow the lawn, so really, who needs husbands, either?

The country’s gone mad. Well okay, it’s been in that condition for at least a couple of decades, but still …

Clemson University apologizes for staging “Mexican Night” at its cafeteria, promises never to do it again.

Some students’ reactions:

Everything was going great. Students were loving the food and festivities. Except for two students, who took to Twitter to voice their displeasure with the school’s decision to host such a “#CUlturallyInsensitive” event.

Clemson senior Austin Pendergist told Campus Reformhe felt the post-event uproar was “ridiculous.”

“This is something that Clemson Dining has done for years without any sort of backlash. People love the cultural nights in the dining halls,” Pendergist said. “What’s next? Are they going to take away all potato based food as to not offend students from Irish decent? Remove the stir fry station so Asian-American students don’t feel as if they are being misrepresented? When does it end?”

The university, however, took a different position. Dr. Doug Hallenbeck, Clemson University’s Senior Associate Vice President of Student Affairs apologized for the event’s “flattened cultural view of Mexican culture.”

“It is the mission of University Housing & Dining to create supportive and challenging environments that enrich and nourish lives. We failed to live out our mission yesterday, and we sincerely apologize,” Hallenbeck said.

Dr. Hallenbeck went on to promise that the university “will continue to work closely with [its] food service provider to create dining programs that align with Clemson University’s core values.”

The event, which Pendergist said consisted of “a couple balloons, sombreros, and some tacos,” is one of many culturally themed events put on by the Clemson Dining Services throughout the year. For one such event, the university held an event titled “Low Country BBQ Bash,” where students were invited to “Pick up a plate of mighty fine fixins.”

The university has also previously held St. Patrick’s Day-themed events, where students were invited to a dinner of “cornbeef, fried fish, and Irish grilled cheese.” Both those events, it seems, were uncontroversial.

“For as long as I’ve been here, and probably for much longer, Clemson dining has put on certain culinary theme nights, where they decorate the dining halls and serve whatever kind of food. They have Italian night, Mexican night, seafood night, midnight breakfast, all kinds of events,” Pendergist told Campus Reform.

Pendergist went on to say he “can’t imagine how they’re going to react when they discover that Taco Bell is a thing.”

Time for striper fishing

Seagulls seem to already be clearing the pond

Seagulls seem to already be clearing the pond

The peanut bunker, one of the favorite foods for striped bass, are in the area, and some have even turned up in Binney Pond, much to their (fatal) distress.

The bass are moving south now, heading for warmer waters – they left Maine waters last month – but if the bait’s still around, they probably are too.

Your fishing report for the day; we try to be a full service blog.

Democrats stump for votes.

I suspect it’s futile gesture, and that’s (almost) too bad, because it means two more years of Peter Tesei and his fellow goofs running the town. Couldn’t we just disband the whole bunch of them and start over?

♫ Well I had a little dunk about an hour ago, and it went right to my head ♫

Stamford / Greenwich police respond to late-night report of a car plunging off a pier, find driver who thought “there might have been a passenger, I’m not sure.”

I wouldn’t want to cast aspersions on the unfortunate man, but someone who (a) drives into the water and (b) doesn’t remember whether anyone else was in the car with him (turns out, there wasn’t) may have a bigger problem than a flooded engine compartment.
