Two acquaintances have gotten married within the past month. Even though I'm not a huge fan of the institution, I'm still a little bothered by it and am resigned to be forever alone.

painting my Rast dresser and all the hardware today; even though i've got a fan going in the room in basement, the whole house still reeks of oil-based ultra-high-gloss paint.

i got satin nickel spray paint for the hardware - looks nice!

My sympathies, LadyV. I know exactly how you feel.

I finally got matching underwear and bralette yesterday! I was doing my monthly free panty spree at VS ( get free on free on free...I'm like the extreme couponer of VS) and the lady matched mine for me.


When I have a boo I can show it off, and I'll be like "look I have matching unders!!"



and he'll be like




and then I'll be like " MATCHING UNDIES ARRRGGGGHHHHHHH"




and then we'll break up, and I'll be forever alone again, eating my feels.


Free? Spill it, lady


I just buy all black (not that I have much of a choice). I have a couple nude, but matching isn't really a problem

You know what gets old real quick? The way people specify they want a "clean" restaurant when talking about Chinese food. Or no matter the restaurant and how it's actually perfectly clean (if not scrupulously sanitized), it's always described as "dirty, but it's Chinatown". I don't see people asking for recommendations and specifying a "clean" Italian or French restaurant or any other European cuisine. Oh, those dirty Chinese who will eat anything!

It's hard to put it into words. Most of the time, I don't mind being single. I actually prefer it. My personality alone probably isn't suitable for a lot of the kinds of intimate relationships that people tend to have because I while I am sociable, I also really relish some time alone. I felt stifled in a lot of relationships in the past because the men as well as I felt that to be successful, we had to be joined at the hip at all times. It took me a long time to realize that I can't function that way. I need the freedom to be independent in a relationship and a lot of people feel threatened by that. Yet, seeing two acquaintances on Facebook get married within weeks of each other is starting to make me question my convictions and if there really is something wrong with me after all. Or even if I've fully accepted my singleness. I've long been prepared to spend the rest of my life alone. To have it confirmed by others is not a great pill to swallow.

Lady V, so much of this echoes my own thinking/feeling. Big hugs to you.

I really do get it. So many of my friends got engaged over the holidays and it was just too much. (I remember ranting about it a week or two ago).

I joke about being "forever alone" but I wouldn't mind being in a relationship. I just miss being able to curl up to someone. I mean, good sex doesn't hurt either and that's equally hard to find. I don't know that anyone *wants* to be alone, I just wish it wasn't such a hard search to find someone we love. Someone we can tolerate for an extended period....

The good news my pipe is fixed, and I did the bulk of the work (with heavy coaching). I really like solving plumbing problems, and all the goo and tools used in the process (not talking about stopped up toilets). My plumber-friend said he'd hire me as an apprentice when my other work is slow, but that he knows himself, is on marriage #3, and can't be trusted. I'm disappointed, but glad to avoid a situation.

The bad news is that I climbed in to a very small space, and fell a little once in, landing hard on my lower tailbone. It hurts like a m-fer now. And I smashed my fingers moving the dryer (second smash within two days).

I never wear a bra, so my panties don't match. But I almost always wear socks in pairs.

My bra and panties almost always match, my socks rarely do though!

Now that, I can't understand. Mismatched socks would drive me nuts.

I'd know they're there.

Who knows when they'll be on display, socks come off at important times!

Claudine, I think our pipes must be conspiring.

The heating pipes in my apartment started leaking a couple hours before we got up, and soaked half the living room. Only reason I still have working electronics was probably because they're all off the floor (the leaky pipe was on the same side of the room).

Their fix? Putting tape over it because they can't shut off the water until spring (or the pipes will freeze).

%$*^ this apartment!

-------------------------------------------------------------------

And yes, Rou, I realized you specified provinces after I posted. Then I was too lazy to edit my post. :P

I did realize that this is Ontario's first female premier, and Canada's first openly gay premier. Which is totally cool.

#That joyous feeling when you remember the perfect way to use up a bunch of your leftover egg whites.
#That doesn't involve sugar
#not consommé either
#that reminds me a chicken or seafood mousseline is another good use
#or velveting chicken/pork

So, I got both my kids into bed by 8:30 and thought to myself, "Time for some relaxing Downton Abbey!"

By the end of the hour, I was like this:
