-Mom, I really wish you'd just let me help you instead of talking in circles because you don't want to face things with your situation. Also, I can tell there are things you aren't telling me. I don't want to butt in your business, but I'm good at this whole budget and setting-up-a-file-system business, just let me help.

-Hands, I don't know why you're shaking so bad today, but I'm getting a little worried and I don't like it. Knock. It. Off.

How can I communicate to you how much I don't want you to complete your little plan? Of how much I want you to stay around. Of how much I love you and the loss of you will be more than I can handle? That I love you period?

I'm sorry she has done this, but I don't like you letting her win. Of letting her get the best of you.

You have been mad at me for a whole year because of THAT?!? Someone must be laughing their a$$ off at you because they really gave you some wrong information. I don't know whether to laugh, be immensely hurt, or never speak to you again.

Sometimes I wonder if you'd step up if you knew how seriously I'm considering leaving you. But we'll never know, because I don't give ultimatums.

I was watching Decisiones Extremas last night. It gets English subtitles and I either want to die laughing or recoil in horror every time that "mi amor" is translated as "baby." I understand that it can't really be translated literally as "my love" since it sounds silly in English, but "baby"?! Honey and sweetheart or even simply "love" all fit the intended meaning so much better.

There is a hole in my heart...I just discovered that Fossil's Fifty-Four line has indeed met its demise. What am I going to do now? I need a dang grey handbag! Well, off to the outlet to see if they have anything left!

Oh dear Oliver,
I know you're still learning to be an inside cat. I appreciate how quickly you've taken to the litterbox but I am still a little miffed when you pee in cardboard boxes. I know you probably dont know the difference and I'm learning too....we will have patience with each other.

P.S. and I'll make sure all boxes are put up.

I can't trust you anymore.
I thought I could, thought I could forgive you too. Life doesn't work that way, I NEVER did ANYTHING to hurt you, EVER. Good to know you were just using me, at least we cleared up that little "misunderstanding."

I love that my son still gets all stabby when he catches some random guy looking at me. He's always been protective that way, as most boys are of their mommies, but in recent years, he's really, really grown to hate it because he understands now. It just caught me off guard because we rarely go anywhere together anymore, and we're usually with my bf when we do. I also thought he would have outgrown that by 18 and couldn't care less who looked at his mom.

That girl was so utterly bonkers I'm still stunned. Yelling out the letters? The fingers thing? How ironic that her father is a neurologist.

Actually, I could probably use her gestures in my own routine.

"I'll have" (touch fingers to mouth) "a double Vente" (touch fingers to mouth again) "caramel macchiato" (fingers/mouth) "with S-O-Y milk!" (jump up and down and scream with happiness.)

Wow, I can't believe I actually quit my job. I have no idea what I'm going to do now, but I have a huge sense of relief that I don't have to go to that toxic place every day. I'm not going to feel guilty about it because I gave notice 4 weeks ago, and it isn't my fault if they can't find someone else. I knew I couldn't do it long-term.

I've been working these past few weeks out of the goodness of my heart, and dumb boss' daughter has the nerve to complain to me about putting away office supplies when stupid thang obviously can't see that I'd been working my tail off getting letters out the whole morning. I'm pleasantly surprised she had no idea that I'd given notice and was only planning to work one more week. Wonder if they can get someone who will be more tolerant to her crap than I've been. I don't think such a person exists, but doesn't matter cause I WON'T BE THERE! YAY!!!!!

Ninj, this post has just made my day and probably my entire week. In fact, I am going to cut and paste it into an email which goes to my BB and look at it every time I need a laugh.

What is with 'haters'? Just came from another thread where there was a fair bit of it going on. It just seems like so much energy is used (and wasted) in trying to diminish someone else. Energy that could we could direct to our own betterment/enjoyment. Wait a minute, is a hater's hateful behavior how they use their energy for their own enjoyment? Surely not that many people are (so) afflicted by schadenfreude?

Anyhoo, this is my favorite analysis of 'haters'. Careful there is a fair bit of profanity so if you're squeamish beware. If you're not bothered by profanity then, enjoy!

Maybe the haters can get their own forum...like "low porosity haters", "high porosity haters", "protein sensitive haters"...or just a general topic for haters who haven't hated enough today. Do this: there please.

Just when I thought I'd figured out which forums to stay out of to keep away from all that toxic bs, it rears it's ugly head in a perfectly innocent thread...sheesh!

Great video FeralFeminista - thanks!!!

Why do I feel guilty for calling work and saying I won't be in because I'm sick.

To the first bold - I second that.

To the second bold - When I unexpectedly encounter a hate thread or a hate forum I leave feeling kind of sad, frustrated, angry, and depressed all at once. That's why I needed my Kat Williams hater analysis fix.

To the third bold - YW, Kasden. I love Katt Williams. Gives such great summaries of typical psychological processes. I like the analysis he gives of Women who are unhappy with their stretch marks from pregnancy. So simple and so perfect.

I'm glad! The original inspiration comes from an obscure source, but if you're interested, pm me and I'll refer you.

Because you have a strong work ethic and hate leaving people in the lurch (lerch?).
