So, I was supposed to save the rest of the rhubarb compote to have with some yogurt. Yeah . . .



I thought I had a lot of rhubarb, but now I think I should maybe buy some more.

Oh, my sssssssssssinus.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

At Ulta today, trying to find a new conditioner to replace my Garnier Fructise Triple Nutrition.

As a sales associate came to ask me if I was doing okay and I told her I was fine, just looking for a replacement after the ingredient change, she was recommending me different conditioners, and after explaining that I don't use certain ingredients because I don't shampoo my hair, a woman in the same area decided she needed to comment and said, "I'm a hair stylist and it really irks me when people, women especially don't shampoo their hair. Shampoo is actually good for your hair". I explained to her that shampoo was much to drying for my hair, and she said that shampoos are definitely not drying (which I know is true for some) and that it's best to shampoo your hair every day so that you can remoisturize better. And that women who don't shampoo their hair often are lazy.

Uhhh what??? I nicely explained that just because I don't shampoo my hair doesn't mean I don't cleanse it.

But seriously? Lazy? Yes, my years of struggling to accept my hair, spending a couple of months researching on this site, and then test several products that will make my hair look its best over the course of a few months is Lazy? It's lazy of me to wake up an hour earlier than I need to on days that I have to have my hair look really nice so I can restyle it? Uh...no, that's not lazy. Sorry that my hair looks better than your very dry and heat damaged strands.

^Le sigh. Did you point out how it's obviously working for your hair to not use the stuff?

Frankly, it sounds like you were way nicer than she deserved. You have great restraint.

See? He's smiling!

The temptation to eat it with a spoon is definitely there though.

There's a diner that serves a 'basket o' biscuits' with rhubarb and ginger jam that I'm dying to try just because that is on the menu. It's not super close to us so we haven't eaten there yet, but it's on the agenda.

Now I want a biscuit.

My little boy decided that he doesn't like having to wait for someone to sit him up, so he will do it himself. I walked in to get him from his nap this afternoon to see a sitting baby!


I know it's backwards, but it completely puts me off a site if they offer clothes in a bunch of different colors. The moment I see they offer the same dress in more than two colors, I don't really want it anymore. T-shirts and sweaters are fine, but dresses and skirts? Noooooo!
Dresses are more distinctive and so I want them to be, well, distinct!
Unfortunately, it seems most women prefer to have tons of options when it comes to color, so I keep seeing sites that do this.
Please, if you want.

Dayum, Mark!

Mark, I have a question about racism and whatnot I was hoping you'd be able to help me out with. I know the whole concept of 'reverse-racism' is idiotic, but do you think its at all understandable for a white person to get frustrated at comments like the one that girl mentioned in McDonalds where the guy instantly assumed she was being racist because she's white? Sorry if I sound incredibly ignorant btw.


I have multiple asks addressing this same issue. I’m “erasing” the feelings of white folks who feel like racism exists to affect them in exactly the same way as it does people color, and that I’m being a dick for pointing out that I don’t care one bit for what that woman did on that reblog.

Let me spell this out for you: your interpretation of racism leaves you “frustrated.” For me, racism means that I get:

profiled by the cops
rejected for jobs
bullied in school and college
followed by cops
beat up by cops
had **** thrown at me
been on the receiving end of more racial slurs than I can count
enduring an employer calling me “beaner” or “Mr. Bean” or “Frijole Man” for a year
rejected outright on dates because I’m not white
openly ridiculed and demeaned in college courses because students and professors believed it was unfair that I came to school on a scholarship because I clearly couldn’t do this **** on my own and i was taking money from white students
an endless list of microaggressions, violence, invasion of personal space, constant bullying, the pain of living in a society that thinks my skin is ugly because I’m not pale, and other such things I am too pressed to list out.
so you’ll excuse me if I don’t shed one goddamn tear because you feel frustrated that people don’t automatically trust you for not being a racist piece of ****

given that you just did this to me

i’d say the feelings are pretty close to actual truth

please don’t write me again. i don’t have the time nor the patience to educate you on a the very basic idea that racism against people of color equals a CONSTANT SENSE OF NOT BELONGING AND THE FEAR THAT ANY DAY, SOMEONE MIGHT JUST SNAP AND KILL YOU.

and let’s be ****ing real, i ain’t even black, and i get a fraction of the **** that people who are darker than me get. so i can’t even begin to process what went through your brain that made you think I would understand being frustrated for people not trusting you after decades upon decades of racial hatred showing us that we aren’t worthy. of course i don’t understand that. i don’t have the goddamn luxury to.
I'm sorry but wtf

You LOVE spending time with me, You think I'm foxy as all ish, are willing to spend lots of money on me yet you don't want to date me??

Good luck buddy. Life is going to be hard for you.

It is also saving everything I print daily and if i forget to clean out the printer cache it wants to reprint everything the next day when I boot up. I found this button to I select but when I do that certain things will not print. I do not have the patience for IT today. Thank you employer for outsourcing our IT to Dell. Not any easier when you work remote. Ok I am done!!
