@w_S

Feeling cheating, yes, I completely understand.

I'm not married. No kids. The last conversation I had with my mom she mentioned wanted to see me married. She said she's stopped by to clean so my bf would think I was a neat person. I think about this often

American reaction to weight measurements is eerily reminiscent of reactions to suggestion of changes in government. Just this knee-jerk "this is the American way and we're the best so clearly this is the best way to do things". Universal healthcare? Socialism! Evil socialism! Grams? Ounces? Oh noes, a faster, neater, more efficient way of measuring! The horror! Can't you use cups? Cups worked just fine for my grandmother thankyouverymuch!

The scientist in me LOVES measuring by weight while baking. Takes the question out of whether or not that cup of flour had a giant air pocket hiding in it.

It has also take all I have to learn *not* to be so super particular about quantities in general cooking. Like, the recipe is not going to fall apart if don't add exactly the right amount of onion

Ah, the joys of being obsessive.

LOL. Just now when I typed "ah, ", my phone wanted to follow it with fuhgeddaboutit. Tee hee.

I wish you wouldn't get so personal when you're upset.

Also, should I order those boots?

OMG. It's so hilarious in my non science classes how babied the students are. They literally CRIED to my professor because she wasn't giving a study guide, they CRIED and almost cursed her out because she didn't put up powerpoints. And then when she skipped a slide, they attacked her to know if it was on the test.

I can't with them! I haven't had a study guide since high school. Earth doesn't' give you a study guide in real life, quit looking for the easy ways out. Jeez.

Mom, there is no law that you must own a computer. If you don't want one, don't have one. You have tried for ten years to figure out how to use one. You can't seem to make it work. I wish you would have taken a class or two at the library, but for some reason you think that is beneath you. And that is okay, too.

i really want a scale for my baking!

what's a study guide?

i once took a "fun" science class that was filled with non-science majors. they made the science majors and the professor what to kill ourselves. once they argued about the color of blood in the body being blue. the look on my prof. face was priceless.

LOL.

I have a friend who insists by that. Because that pit is so awesome that it's going to MAGICALLY keep the air off of your guacamole and stop it from oxidizing.

Um.....no. Science. It's wonderful.

I was terribly betrayed by someone whom I loved, trusted, gave money to for years. I mentioned this a while back. Not a day goes by that I don't think of it, even though I try to forget.

Today for a certain reason, the details hit me in the face again. How do you get over being terribly betrayed by someone? Don't expect an answer, just venting. I no longer trust my own judgement about people since he fooled me so terribly. I wasted my life on him, literally. Very bitter pill to swallow.

ETA: I just found it he did it to others too.

Oh, curlypearl. I am so sorry that happened to you. I wish I could say something to make it all go away.

You are a wonderful person. Please don't waste your thoughts on some stupid schmuck. :icecream:
