Today I went to NYC and did the touristy thing for the first time. One of the women I went with was the bossiest, most self-centered, selfish and controlling people I've met in a long time. Despite her stank attitude, I enjoyed the trip.

I know why she does it....her husband controls her every move. But dang...

Christine, it was fun! I rarely get to play tourist.

She had a weird fixation on Macy's Picture Window....? The day was just all about her. She didn't get that people were getting annoyed because of her bad attitude.

On another note, there are so many hot men in NYC! I could not help but flirt when I was not dealing with bossy woman.

I went to my dad's Christmas party. He was drunk but an entertaining fun drunk until his sister started going back and forth with him about religion and how he should go to church....And that's why I don't discuss politics, religion or money at social gatherings. And who debates with an intoxicated person, you will never win that one. 2+2=6, no matter how many times you say the answer's 4.

Also, my cousin(who is the same age as me) girlfriend's is also pregnant and we're both due around the same time. Who woulda thunk it? I'm excited for them.

Since, I have Sunday off I was going to have the driver person take me back home in the afternoon since I live 90mi away. Why did I get a text last night from my manager who changed the schedule at the last minute saying I have to work at 10am Sunday morning....I won't be there, hell there's no way I can be there. And since I didn't see this text until midnight, I won't be able to call my job until it opens or maybe I just never received a text.(Devilish grin)

I don't remember hearing about this last year, the response is awesome!

AND why do I never hear about "wear <this> day" until after the fact? *sigh*

AND, there's a GeekGirlCon??? WHY haven't I heard about that either? I'm such a geek.

+1.

I organized a meetup mixer where toward the end of the night, some of the attendees who were left started debating Occupy Wall Street. I didn't say anything because I didn't know most of the attendees and it would have been awkward if I stated my opinion and ended up offending someone. And the attendees were all over 30. You'd think they'd know better than to debate controversial subjects like that at an event like that but common sense these days isn't so common.

Is it truly a racist stereotype if there's truth to it? Example, most Asians in Asia and many elsewhere do eat rice with their meals, so saying "rice eaters" may be a blanket yet it's not untrue.

Hey dip****, everyone in the world eats rice.

UPDATE: Ok, first off, I can&rsquo;t believe this answer has generated the amount of hatemail that it did. Second, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU MORONS THAT IT&rsquo;S SO IMPORTANT TO YOU THAT YOU CALL PEOPLE &ldquo;RICE EATERS?&rdquo; I (almost) actually want a reply, is there any part of you that thinks this ****er would be doing this for any non-racist reason?

So my mom tells me how she's going to buy a ceramic pan because that way fish won't stick. Le sigh. I explain to her this is a waste of money and fish sticking has nothing to do with the pan and everything to do with the way she cooks it. We use cast iron and non-stick pans, but stainless works as well. It's a simple concept of hot pan, dry fish. But as much as she says to show her then, she'll simply refuse to change the way she's been doing something forever.

You could always opt to smack her with the pan Saria. I'd recommend the non-stick or stainless one unless you're really in a desperate rage.

Yes to the bolded. This is like de ja vu. It was about Occupy Wall Street, and a rather innocent remark was turned into "those lazy poor people looking for handouts."

I tried to do a demonstration with the chicken she was cutting up and how look, no sticking. Stainless pan. Hot pan. And instantly starts the "but that makes a lot of smoke", the "walls are yellowing", "this house is small, it's meant for people who won't do much cooking" (yes, she insists that you should only do limited amounts of cooking and baking in certain kitchens and basically her concern is about how to keep the kitchen looking as spiffy as possible).
See? Waste of breath.

Leaving the sugar out of the cranberry walnut bread was a very happy accident.

Ended up making eggnog bread pudding and it was scrumptious.
