Really Blizz? (aka Activision) Do you think no-one has noticed that Outlands is effed up? MoP officially comes out tomorrow, will Outlands be fixed or will it continue to crumble into the Nether? This happens every friggin expansion, you would think you geniuses could figure this out.
I haven't played that game in 6 months....and I bought the expansion.

Lord help me, it's sucking me back in

I finally get an answer on craigslist but the catch is that potential roommate is a smoker --- weed smoker.
Maybe I can hope that disgusting stench doesn't invade the whole place, but it figures that when I finally find a place that sounds ideal, it comes with this.

It will invade the entire space, not worth it.

if there's one thing i've learned, it's that men - especially the older ones - believe that it is their *absolute right* to date/bonk/marry young, beautiful, very thin (with BIG boobs) women as a reward for every other failing in their lives. and if they perceive that their ex-wife was some kind of "harpy" in ANY way, their belief in such increases exponentially.

and after being on internet singles/dating forums/sites for 20 years, i can also tell you that this sense of entitlement has become worse over the past decade due to a flood of tv shows and movies where the dorky/nerdy/overweight guy gets the girl that matches the description above.

there is also a prevailing attitude that because women work and earn decent wages (some more than others) these days, that we shouldn't care about a man's fiscal responsibility. if you own your own house and want nothing to do with a guy who confesses on date 1 that he's in the middle of bankruptcy proceedings or the one who tells you that he's still struggling financially after his divorce 21 years ago (with no children), you are a gold digger.

*snork*

My post makes no sense since the censors got ahold of it.
But yes it sounds the same to me too - Swat, swot, not, tot, lot, bought, fought, rot all sound like
t-rhymes with not-but with a w instead of an n.

Have you tried the flat stye? I have used this type for almost 40 years. Light weight, don't blow your hair all over, no parts to fall off, small and easy to pack, and cheap.

All those sound completely different to me. Using not to make the rhyme doesnt work for me because it makes t-w-o-t and that sounds completely different to me if you change the o to an a.

This is very interesting, we speak the same language and yet there are so many differences in pronunciation, offensiveness, sounds, spelling.

Forget all the other words then. How about NAWT with a TW instead of an N?
Of course then we get into how it's pronounced in different areas of the US. No one talks the same so just because I pronounce it like nawt not fought doesn't mean others do.
It's still a fun word. And the word t*t is also used by lots of us here. You can't really go by NC censors all the time. Not everyone is offended by the same thing.

I tried one a few years ago (at some point when we lived in CT because I remember going on a wild goose chase to several CVS's looking for it) and it didn't work for me. I need a diffuser with little fingers because I get up into my hair with them, it's just how I roll. I do vaguely remember having one like that when I was much younger though.

Tried the expensive dryer today even though it's heavy and the toggle buttons on the handle are placed badly and of course my hair looks good. I don't think I can get past the design flaws though and it's super loud and I'd like to still be able to hear in 6 months. The lighter weight much cheaper dryer is up for trial tomorrow so we'll see how that goes.

Good use for a leftover hamburger? Smear some BBQ sauce on a tortilla, crumble up some grilled burger and sprinkle with cheese then cook and inhale a scrumptious quesadilla. I should have added pickles and tomatoes!

Over here, (in my part of the UK) the t-word rhymes with cat.
