((((CurliLocks)))) That is truly frustrating. Try to find out as much as you can and make notes and lists of what needs to be done. That will still help him a great deal. Tell your husband to make sure they bring an outfit for her. The funeral director who helped me when my mom died said it's best to choose something with a high neck. And they should bring undergarments, stockings, the whole nine yards - everything except shoes. Also bring along a photogragh that can be used either in an obit or in the prayer card the funeral home will print. In a way it will be good for him to do some of these things, and you and your husband can accompany him and help him along the way. I'm thinking of you.
Thank you. That helps. Unfortunately, nothing she owned was high-necked, always open collar blouses.

I go out plenty. There are simply no hot men around 99% of those times.

I should really be going to bed. I worked 12 hours and I have to be back again in less than 10 hours.
I'm not off again until Friday. ALL THE SADS!

Just . . .

Ugh, Urbance looks to be so ****ing cool, but the plot sounds like a big old mess. Gender wars? Women hate men and it's just as bad as the men hating women? A hetero couple kept apart by society? Nooooo! Ugh, why? Everything else about it looks amazing! I mean, look at these characters, this art style, this animation!

STFU, Conservatives, searchingforknowledge: Its like you are laughing...
I would say that technically I live vicariously through you, and you have a better chance than I do but the lack of hot men in NYC (why? how?) pretty much equalises our chances-or lack thereof.

Crawling in bed will be extra great this morning. Actually making it from the couch to the bed will be the hard part.

The Lizzie Bennet Diaries on YouTube are killing me. If y'all haven't watched it, you absolutely should. I know we have Pride and Prejudice fans in here and this is really good!

I didn't have much luck finding something high-necked for my mom either, so I just chose something I knew she really liked and was as high at the neckline as she had. (((hugs)))

While I was in New York I brought up how I have no friends here and explained that I can't truly say any of the people I work with are friends. A part of it is actually that in NYC kitchens most people don't have cars, so there's just more likelihood of leaving work together or hanging out after work. Likewise meeting up before work. The other thing is that people here are coupled, which also makes bonding more difficult.
But finally, there is this example. There's a young woman who has a Dominican boyfriend and she's spoken of his jealous tendencies. How they'd argue if she hung out with people from work, he "lets" her do certain things, etc. Tonight she was talking about how they're improved because he's easing up, his mom told him she's allowed to have friends, and so on. Y'all, you'd think this was a revolutionary concept. And I'm sorry, but dating a man who thought this way is just so foreign to me. Like I'd try not to judge, but that's just too much effort. Plus I'm quite alright with failing spectacularly at it. Ain't nobody got time time for that.
She had a girls' night with a friend "because he was busy".



And how she knows he's just not the type to tell her to have fun while she does her own thing instead of them doing things together.
Oh, and also that he told her he was going out with high school friends and that she knew one of the "girls" liked him, but she wouldn't make a big deal because she is trying to get him to not do it to her.
For real, maybe it's just because I'm a weirdo, but why are women always so convinced that someone wants their man that I sure as hell wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole. Don't nobody want your scrub!
Yeah, I just feel like I'm on a different level altogether than this woman. I cannot connect.
That's how I feel about too many women when they talk about their relationships. Like I'm from a different planet or something, because I just can't understand the mindset that would allow a person to live like that.

Oh my word.

Part of my tooth that has had a filling in it forever just broke off! I've never had anything like this happen and I'm freaking out. Of course it happens on a Saturday! Now there is a jagged edge against my tongue and I'm freaked out that the whole filling will come out.

That happened to me last year! Not fun, I ended up needing a crown... I use zocdoc.com to find places open on the weekends that take my insurance
