It's honestly no big deal at all,
I felt the same way in Jamaica on certain beaches. It's very.... freeing.

B makes me laugh. He says I am craving choc chip cookies. I say would you like me to make some? He says-you probably do not have the stuff to make them right? Ahhh, in your house growing up - no the ingredients would not be there but in my house growing up and in this house I cannot imagine not having them. Heck, it's basic baking stuff. So 30 minutes later B has his cookies.

1. Make up swatch videos, blogs etc.

I do not. I do not want to see just your arm. Your ARM tells me nothing of the colors. I hate when blogs just do the arm, FOR LIPSTICK. Put it on your lips, since when is your arm and lip the same color? Mine aren't! I also hate when people say to put make up on your hand to see if it matches your skin, WTF, MY ARMS ARE SO MUCH DARKER THAN MY FACE AT LEAST BY 2 shades if not 3. Get outta here. Eye shadow is okay for swatching on your arm, but lipstick, please get a bus ticket and go away forever.


2. When people stand close to you in line. Stop. I don't want to breathe in your exhales, because you're so freaking close to me. If I breathe in hot air that just came out your nostrils YOU KNOW YOU'RE TOO CLOSE. Back the hell up. What makes you think standing close to me is going to get you any closer to the register??? What's wrong with you??

I decided to try a natural deoderant in case something from my other one irritated me and caused the bump. I must have super stinky pits as I always end up with funk pits when I try natural.ones.

I really didn't think I wanted to do it, and two bridesmaids actually reclined because they were uncomfortable! I didn't want to tell the bride no, but I told her I felt uncomfortable with the naked part, and she said she understood and that I didn't have to go into the naked saunas.

But since all the other girls were acting totally comfortable with it, I just went along with it. It's SO not a big deal, especially while you're in the water.

I've got to vent for a min. What is wrong with people? My dad wanted a simple service. He didn't want receiving friends, memorial at a church or funeral home, and then graveside services. He did not want to put his family through that stress. He was also a very large man, thanks to his medical problems and hardly being able to walk let alone exercise. He had mentioned several times, over several years, that he wanted to be cremated and just have a simple service at his family cemetery, by his mom, dad, and sister who passed at 19. He didn't want people to have to carry him, or do 400 thing, just remember him. I understood this completely. In the week before he died he... He must have known. He didn't say a word to us but called several friends and family members and made his wishes known. I know this can be a common thing. We did our best to follow his wishes. We wanted to honor him. It was simple, personal, and beautiful. Well, one of his oldest (and older) friends, who is in his late 70's, called my mother and told her we dishonored him. He did not want to be "burned in hells fire" as he put it. He would have hated the funeral home that handled the service, and hated the service itself. WTF!?!? My mom has some issues with cremation as it is, so this really upset her. She did not feel comfortable with it but put that aside to respect my father. I, like my father, have no problems with it and I also see no point in the 900 things funeral homes or friends & family may expect you to do, in order to say goodbye. He knows what my dad did and did not want. I know he does. They argued (like an old married couple) about cremation in the past. I have heard him tell my dad that its a sin and like burning in hell, and I heard my dad tell him to STHU and quit being ignorant. He also made comments that my dad killed himself, which he did not. He might be suffering from dementia now. He keeps to himself and lives alone so i do not know for sure. I can't think of any other reason why he would call and say so many hurtful things to upset my mother. He better be. I have known him my whole life, I have loved him like family, but I now hope I never see him or hear from him again. I'm taking the high road, and putting mildly, by saying that.

Fifi, I'm so sorry for your loss. You and your family did everything right. Your dad's friend was so wrong. Grief, along with the possible dementia may explain it, though that does not take away the pain he caused.

I've also found that some people really do and say some strange things during and right after the death of a friend or family member. (once, while attending the Shiva for my best friend's mother, a friend of the deceased decided to corner me and fill me in on his opinion of her parenting regarding my friend's sister. I can only be grateful he spoke to me and not one if her relatives.)

Does he have any family you might contact, in case he is indeed starting to show signs of dementia?

So remember a few months back when I posted a pic of me and my friend's new baby? I know you do because you guys follow my every move . Well as of next week I will be his full time baby sitter! Baby Logan 5 days a week! I'm so stinking excited. Oh to have a baby in the house again! And I have a job y'all. I haven't had one in over 12 years. I'm feeling like things are turning around. Woohoo!

Thank you KK. He has a daughter but I have no idea where she is. She's in her 50's, moved away when I was a young girl, and I'm not sure if she has much contact with him. I do not think they had the best relationship and I think he has isolated himself from many people over the past 5 or 10 years. He also has some ex wives but they couldn't help themselves, let alone anyone else. I'm not sure who the best person would be. I know people can so and say strange things, due to grief, but he seems to be continuously angry now. I think he has made many hurtful comments to most of his friends. I feel bad. I would often defend him when people said bad things (like "he's crazy") about him because he has been alone for so long, disabled, lives on a small pension, and always seemed so kind. He just takes care of his animals and seemed so sweet. He was always very good to me and my mom. After this I learned that many things I heard about him, over several years, were true. I'm also learning that he is possibly obsessed with my mom. We need that like a hole in the head. I'll try to talk to someone about him but I told my mom to avoid him like the plague. I can't talk to him right now. I don't want to cuss an old, and probably demented, man

** in other words, the few family friends I spoke to tonight said they were sick of dealing with him and had given up.

Fifi it's good to see you, even under these circumstances. I know we were all concerned and missed you. I'm so sorry that happened. It was wrong. People react to death so differently and sometimes wrong.

Thank you, Jess. It's good to be back! I've really missed everyone. I needed to hermit for a little while but knew I couldn't stay away too long.

Short and sweet.

This is the sort of quote that Saria (or any of the rest of us) would share regardless of what's happened in recent threads. Are we all going to have to be hypervigilant about never sharing cool quotes that might relate peripherally to drama or read all the threads so we can catch if there's some drama that might be related to things we think are cool or annoying and want to post about? Who has the time for that? Also, I really don't see how this was continuing an argument. The fight on that thread wasn't about the idiotic term "Politically Correct."

It's creepy seeing people's posts replaced by a message from the mods. My brain goes straight to the dystopian sci-fi references. To think that this annoyance started with a simple request for racism to actually be punished! I'd think that transparency would be far better for defusing tensions than these dramatic proclamations replacing some or all of people's posts.

Azula makes such amazingly sinister faces. That .gif is perfection! So is that beautiful tumblr post and the sign(?) about the assumption that men's "natural state is rapist." I have often wished that men would wake up to the fact that in teaching women that their every breath is the wrong move to evade the uncontrollable rape monsters, they cast themselves as uncontrollable rape monsters. Almost as often as I've wished that women would wake up to the fact that they are condemning their daughters to lives constantly hounded by those monsters by choosing to blame their victims and imply that some sort of preemptive consent notice is signed when donning a miniskirt. I keep thinking of my mom and grandma agreeing that girls showing a certain amount of skin are "asking for trouble" and then backpedaling and saying, "Oh, of course not!" when I reminded them that skin showing is not an invitation to rape someone. People really don't think about what these words mean when they say them, do they?

(((CL)))

Fifi, I hope your mother is able to reject all of his ideas about things out of hand now that he's not actively upsetting her. What a terrible thing to have to deal with when you're already grieving.
