Especially given the preview for the next one. WANT NOW!
I've seen reviews whining about how "I just want Aang back" which are pretty much about them not liking that it's a young woman as the lead. Meh, deal with it, fanboys!

Funny that a lot of the Whedon lovers are saying it's wonderful.

Erugh. I'm a horrible person today.

My friend is off on an exotic holiday with her boyfriend. Though she claims to have no money. I swear she's one of those people where everything just falls into her lap.

I'm all jealous and its nasty.

Seeing Dr. Zizmor ads on the train all these years (since I arrived in the US to this day), I guess I must be the minority and they must work for him. I don't know, but it seems to me that I'd never go anywhere near a dermatologist (or any doctor really) who is this much of a shill.

The sooner I can fully accept that my family's dysfunction has nothing to do with me the sooner I can stop letting their negative ways and abusive attitudes affect me. This is my life and that is theirs. They have every right to choose to live a messed up life and I have every right to choose a different path. It's not my place to fix them or show them the error of their ways. They have every right to think that their dysfunction is normal, ain't my problem anymore.

I kind of hit a wall last night where I went to talk to my mother last night about my current relationship problems. I was sitting on the couch crying and trying to have a heart to heart and she turned it into the same old argument. I have tried to explain to her over and over WHY I isolate myself and where I am coming from but from her perspective "the rest of the family is happy, it's YOU who is the problem".

Why would I choose to hang around people when my opinions, values and feelings are of no consequence and matter so little? My feelings are constantly being demeaned by being thrown into the 'too dramatic' and 'too sensitive' camp. No matter how gently I phrase it She just gets all upset and tells me "well if you hate us so much then when you move out you can get what you want and never have to see us again" .... where does she even get this from!?? Why is everything always so black and white?? Just because I am having a hard time NOW does not mean I don't want anything to do with them?? I am a grown adult who has lived on my own for 7 years and has had to move back in with my family due to circumstance and she expects me to be all happy and engaging with the family who IMO exists in a dysfunctional and emotionally hostile way??

I told her I was sorry that she was uncomfortable with what I was going through but I can't snap out of it, or put on a happy face of denial just because she is uncomfortable or because she wants me to. I'm beginning to see her as being very emotionally immature and hostile and I can't change that.

I'm just done. I choose a life where screaming and yelling and name calling is not okay. I choose a life where negativity and hatred is not allowed.

She chose to allow insane behaviour to keep the peace. In her world she chose to accept abusive yelling because in her twisted world "I can't change them, I can only change myself" so she allowed my brother to behave however he wanted and let me dad continue to critisize and demean me. She doesn't respect that I am not going to allow myself be spoken to in an abusive way by anyone. Period. Why would I want to let myself be influenced by people who value me and my feelings so little.

See, those are the elements that made 4a go downhill IMO. It just got too excessive. Boardies IIRC didn't act like jerks over there very often when I first joined. Behavior like that occured mainly on nonhair. Now things have flip-flopped. But now that the board has had its collective wrists slapped, things may change. Who knows...? Maybe all of nc.com is going downhill...

Somewhat related, but I had a laugh the other day as there was a discussion about Biscoff cookies and someone pointed out that they are speculoos cookies. I had a moment of "so that's what those cookies spring is always talking about are". I'm sure most people would have this realization the other way around. So, speculoos spread is in fact sold in the US.
For the record, not my thing (the spread --- too much sugar) but I do love to make and eat the cookies themselves!

I agree and disagree. Of course I witnessed a few instances where I thought specific posters were out of line, but I have also witnessed similar behavior countless times on other boards here, too. I really don't think anyone acted like "jerks," at least, not any jerkier than anyone else on NC. If anything, I appreciated their overall ability to find humor in any and all situations.

Apparently some posters thought they were mean or bullies, but I've lurked and posted there for a long time, and I really don't think the "culture" on 4a is any different from that of non-hair. The only distinction I can make between the two boards is the deluge of gifs and the fact that the majority of posters in 4a are black.

I was in TJ's on Friday and knew there was something else I wanted. Exactly where do you hide this cookie butter?

They can come to Colorado any time now. Canon City gets lots of tourism, they'd do well!

We keep ours with the apple butter, mango butter, and cocoa almond spread. It should be in that general area.
