Say It. I Dare You.

I volunteered at a 1940's event at a museum tonight.

A newspaper photographer had me pose with a young boy dressed as a newsboy and said,"This is practice! Maybe you guys will go to the prom together this year!" (I am old enough to have been his teenage mother........)

When we left, the kid told me he would call me closer to prom season. (He didn't wink, but he might as well have.)

I feel like teenage boys are WAY gutsier than they were back in my day.

And why do I attract so many 16-year-old boys and where were they when I WAS 16?
I just voted for the first time ever! I might frame the picture I'm so happy about it.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
I just watched Winter's Bone and it was kind of a trudge. I kept trying to force myself to be more interested because it seemed like the kind of story that would keep me watching. I think my favorite part of THG may be before the action even began when Katniss was solely motivated by her need to care for Prim, and there are a lot of similarities there, but nope. I watched the whole movie, but I wouldn't have if I hadn't specifically recorded it. Jennifer Lawrence is a really great actress, but I still didn't care about anything, not even when Ree was holding her dad's arm while that lady sawed through his bones. I just thought about how impressive Lawrence's reactions were from a technical standpoint; they didn't reach my heart.

By high school, there was no effing way I could do such things. By then, I was instead doing things like turning completely toward a window to an empty hallway to avoid looking at/being looked at by the guy I was sitting next to because I thought he was cute and zomg eye contact what do now. Or succeeding at smiling at the cute guy in the drive-thru window or at the movie theater (progress?), but then freaking out and determinedly being super interested in something in the opposite direction and then being annoyed with myself when I was told, "Um, hello, dude responded to your smile! Why did you bail?"
YASSSS, you thought that movie was boring too I AM REDEEMED or maybe we both have bad taste whatever I am not the only one!
I kept waiting for the part when it would get really interesting and then it never did. :/

Middle school you sounds way cooler than current me.
The speaker on my phone is broken after dropping it for like the millionth time. I cannot afford a new iphone right now (which means I have to do some serious saving), but I cannot do without apps like iperiod. I just cannot.
I ain't thirsty. There's plenty of fish in the sea, but I don't want all of them, can I have some standards? Or do we just have to settle, for someone's who meh and will do.

So this site has helped thousands of us with our hair. Some of us already know curly hair is fabulous, even though society tells us it is not. Others of us need encouragement to embrace our curls. Be happy with what we have.

Imagine my surprise to find "Bigger Bust Without Surgery" *trending*. Exactly where it is trending, I have no clue. I am pretty damn (yes I wrote damn. Feel free to ban me) it is not trending with my curl friends. Anyway, first, it takes me to a link on nc where other crap like this is posted. Really? One of the things so appealing about nc was it was not like those icky woman magazines that tell me everything I need to change about myself. Not anymore. NC is just like the icky magazine. Good for you.

Sorry, back to the bust story. Second, it takes me to a site that tells me how I can get botox injected in my breasts because
Mother Nature has decided to deprive you of big bust
(nice typo btw) So I come here and learn to accept what Mother Nature has given me -you know totally fabulous hair- only to be told my bust isn't good enough. Guess what, nc? YOU LOST ALL CREDIBILITY.
OMG. This woman.

"So, how did it make you feel that EVERYBODY was telling you how beautiful you looked at your friend's wedding because your hair was straight?"

Not ONE PERSON used those words. And my hair wasn't even straight! People are commenting that I looked beautiful because of the fantastic make-up job and the cute little dress the bride was kind enough to let us wear. NOBODY, I am sure, is looking at those photos and going, "Thank GOD she finally did something about that mess of a head of hair!"

"And you looked SO happy in those photos. You had SOME smile on your face. You're going to tell me it's not because you felt better about yourself because of your hair?"

No, it was because I was at my best friend's wedding and having an awesome time.

OMG OMG OMG OMG.
Time to watch Parks & Rec season 3 again so that I can relive when I fell in love with Ben Wyatt and realized all other men are woefully inferior. Well, except maybe Mako.
D...your mom...I just...I can't send punches in the mail and I really want to.

For someone so willing to take matters into her own hands, it seemed to me like Ree really didn't get to do much.

Little me was cooler than current me by a longshot! Well, only in this respect, because she also regularly failed to stick up for herself and had no clue how to articulate her beliefs and had a whole host of pre-teen problems, but still. It's not fair, I am her! I should have gotten to retain my flirting prowess!
OMG, LOOK!!

...It's a siggie.

I decided to give 5-htp a try this weekend. I dreamed that one of my mom's former students kidnapped me as a revenge tactic and pulled out all my eyelashes. WTF, brain?

Why do I have all the work in the world this week? When it rains, it pours, I guess, but I have no idea how I'm going to get it all done in time. Sheesh!

Did I just sleep 10 hours? Is this a dream? I can not remember the last time I slept that long, but I'm glad I did.

Thanks for the promise, Rou. That sounds far too painful to repeat.

I definitely believe some restaurants can not compete with some of the food I, or my family, can make. Then again I mainly have Huddle Houses, fast food places, and chain steak houses that are crap to compare it to. I won't even touch something as simple as coleslaw in a restaurant, and best wishes people who open southern restaurants in the south. They are for the tourists who do not know better.

With that said, we do have a few places, and a few dishes, locally that no one else could compare to. And nothing will ever touch some dishes I've had while traveling. I want to go back to CA & NY just to eat.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

People who buy harnesses so that their dogs can look like service dogs and be allowed everywhere can all DIAF. Seriously, **** all of you.

I think part of people's personal preference for home cooked food is that you can make it the way you like. It's not a matter of the home cook objectively being better than a trained chef, but about what pleases the palette and what you're used to. But what do I know? I hate eggs! LOL

I think I need to work on Davin's pronunciation of the "s" sound. He didn't want to wear his socks and kept saying, "Off, c*ck!" My husband and I had such a giggle fit about it.

Living in New Orleans I much rather eat out, the worst resturant serves delish food. living in Dc, I rather eat home. The best resturant is blah. have to take a trip to Va or Md to get food that is worth it. I can cook better then most "chefs" in dc. In fact, I think most people probably can. How the heck they get their jobs?
The restaurant just called me. I might be getting fired. They got two complaints about me Friday. I have one week to "shape up". I am shaking.
What? I'm sorry CIBC. This has been a tough (and weird) week...

I think where you live and what you are exposed to plays a large part in it. We have 4 subways, 2 McDonalds, and many other fast food places in a 15 mile radius. 3 new fast food places are being built as I type. We don't need them. We need some real food diversity. Meanwhile, most actual restaurants are good when they open but quickly slide down hill, along with their grade. We have 3 truly good places to eat. They have been around for 15 to 10 years, each (great breakfast, unusual and great pizza, and one that offers vegan and gluten free dishes along with others). It's easy to burn out on them if you eat there often.

The site is far more focused on advertising than it used to be. And we pay the price.
