Oh, awesome, San Francisco's median home price just hit $937,500. Imagine the press when we hit a million. *confetti*

I really really love that Obama did an AMA on Reddit.

Which internet browser do you use most often and why? Similarly, which browser do you find most annoying to use?

Seriously, isn't everyone going to say the same thing? Most often: Chrome. Why? Because it works. I used to use Firefox until it started eating memory. Hate: IE. Each version gets worse and worse.

Which classic arcade game was always your favorite as a kid? When you come across an old Galaga, Donkey Kong, or Ms. Pac Man machine (whatever your favorites were), do you still like to toss a quarter at them to take one more shot at the high scores list?

CRYSTAL CASTLES. If I could find a working console, SO MANY QUARTERS.

Also Centipede.

I don't much care. The exchange of valentines in my son's first-grade class was very cute. I never had big expectations from my partner on Valentine's Day, so I'm not missing out on anything gigantic or extravagant. But this year I admit to a bit of sensitivity around the issue of being single, especially in terms of being a single parent. And of course the holiday does a great job of reminding me of that. *sigh*

You know this plain nonfat Greek yogurt that's all the rage? Chobani at Safeway, Fage at TJ's, whatever? I put honey on it like tellinellen does, but I'm not crazy about it that way. What do you do to it to make it yummy?

Also, my mom says never to put strawberries or grapes in the fridge because it does something to the sugars and makes them taste not as good. Is this a rule you follow?

Watching the video of the cop pepper-spraying the UCD protestors reminds me of the kids who got handcuffed, lined up in the cop shop and pepper sprayed for protesting the felling of old-growth redwoods in the early 90s. I'll never forget the image of a cop bending over a young hippie girl, pulling her head back by her braid, pulling her eyelids open and wiping pepper spray in her eyes. I was outraged and sickened then, and I feel the same way about the video I just saw. In case you haven't watched it, the video shows a bunch of kids sitting on the ground with their arms linked; maybe their hands are plastic-cuffed behind them. Anyway, they are just sitting there in a line. Then a cop walks up with a pepper spray canister and just casually sprays them multiple times, walking back and forth, spraying as he goes, shaking the can to get more out. It's DISGUSTING.

Do we really need to be reminded why our right to peaceful assembly and peaceful protest is so important? Does anybody really believe that it's OK for the police to use weapons like pepper spray on people who are sitting calmly on the ground?

I hope that policeman goes to jail.

What's your favorite Queen song, and why?

Somebody To Love. It has all the best elements of a Queen song--theatrics, a campy backup chorus, heartfelt lyrics, a melody that shows off Freddie's range... the only thing missing is a longer guitar solo but the short one that exists is a killer. And it's meaningful.

Second best: Play the Game. For pretty much all the same reasons as Somebody to Love.

Honorable mention: Killer Queen. Fastidious and precise.
