Why do people say things like this?!

Ex. 1. "I got raped in my State Laws debate! I wanted to cry!"
Ex. 2. "We'll get together rape those plurals together!" (Meaning, learn them really well. We are studying Arabic.)

What exactly do these people expect me to say in return? It makes me want to vomit. These were two different guys within the last week. Not to mention that "rape" is a gaming term, and how some guys were making "rape jokes" at my roommate's party the other day. If this isn't evidence for a misogynistic/rape culture, I don't know what is.

I'm sitting here shopping for a stun gun and pepper spray. I want the pepper spray cause it's attached to a key ring, but I want the stun gun because I want to inflict as much pain as possible.

I got really spooked last night when someone was reversing toward me for no apparent reason and again today when someone rang my doorbell but left no note or anything. After my little incident last month, can't be too careful.

Debating whether or not I should get the Groupon for a threading place in the East Village. Six sessions for $16. Can't beat that.

Actually, I think I just answered my own question.

It must have been so fabulous that she hasn't even remembered us.

Sigh, so sad:
YouTube - "Miss Representation": Official Trailer
I about wanted to cry seeing some of those images.

I'm playing someone on AbbleDabble who plays two letters tops per turn. So annoying. It's one thing if your letters suck for a few turns, but this is just done to be annoying. I unloaded three bingo bonus words on her in a row and she still does two ****ing letters tops per turn.

Unfortunately this is not limited to men, not limited to young people, etc. It makes me ill. And trying to explain why it is offensive can be like pounding your head against a wall.

It may be blasphemy, but I'm not really a huge cupcake (or cake in general) fan. Unless it's rum cake, I could eat rum cake all day long.

That's ok, TRBL. I'll eat yours for you! I'm generous like that.

Yes, I thought about this, which is why I deliberately said "people" instead of "men" or "college kids." In my specific instances though, they were both young men.

Sigh.

I adore cupcakes.

And as a kid there was a baker my parents went to. My parents always bought rum cake. It had this yummy yummy fudgy top with ground pistachio. One time I ate all the top and sides off the cake. My parents were so mad at me! I mean pissed.

I could help it. I loved that chocolate. I still think about it. I wish it was still open. So. Good.

TRBL, I've expressed my disdain for cupcakes and their overly sweet, flawed frosting to cake ratio mediocrity many a time. I wish the cupcake craze would die a fiery death.
And while I like cake (preferably free of cloying frosting), I did start a thread that proves that pies are without a doubt, superior. 100% fact.
But olive oil cakes, yogurt cakes, and many others (hello lemon rosemary pound cake and black raspberry buttermilk bundt) are pretty great.

Hmmm I must find this thread, as I agree with you wholeheartedly. I will admit that I do occasionally watch cupcake wars on the food channel though. It's funny when everyone in the competition decides to make red velvet "Because mine is the BEST red velvet out there" BLECH!

Is anyone watching "Chopped - All Stars"?? Go Aarón!! (or Nate)

Ok, so I just opened it about 15 minutes ago and it's an iPad cover.

For the iPad2 (with 3G!!!!). That I'll get April 28th because it's back ordered.

I can't believe I just typed that. An iPad2, people. I mean...WHAT?!

The man has lost his mind! Before I could even utter the words "We can't get that..." he started in on me about don't dare say we have to return it. He knows me so well.

I'm surprisingly ok with this.

OMG, I'm getting an iPad!!

And I got highlights and I lurve them.

And thank you guys for sharing my birthday with me. Y'all are the bestest.

Happy birthday once again, Miss spring1onu!
