Ok I know the fad of the day is sky high heels with giant frankenstein platforms, but seriously, they look dumb on 'famous' people and look even dumber in small town America. Especially in a dark smokey men's club (not a strip club) where everyone else is in jeans or biker gear or camo. You looked ridiculous. Actually, you looked like you really thought this WAS a strip club.

So, I was doing a little window shopping online for bras. Of course it was only a matter of time before i ran across the ever popular bra sizing conversation. Someone described a 34" band as rather large. She said that most men she knew including big, tall men don't have a ribcage that big. Wha!? Well the hell is she living, Petiteville????

Holy s&*(! A guy from my husband's shop and his wife have been arrested and are currently in jail for domestic voilence, child abuse, and neglent for a nasty home including animal feces and urine all over the place. This guy has been to my house. My husband says that he never would have guessed it coming from this guy. I'm pretty creeped out right now.

Always be protective over your boyfriend. There's way too many girls that are home wreckers

It's the uglies vs. the uglies-not?

I'm in the little valley town of Plainsville.
Three hours until I can eat. I want to eat everything. I feel mentally pregnant.

You should be here so we could get all the dumplings at Golden Garden. It makes me sad that I can't possibly eat all the types they make in one go.

No, Murrrtutles, I mean I'm swoopin' in and taking all the average men while other ladies are fightin' over the hotties or running from the uglies.

40ish, small potbelly, and hair thinning on top? Hot damn, that's my kinda man.
remember that phase in your life when you liked cynical self-deprecating pseudo-philosophical boys
who sucked the life out of you in their adolescent destruction
who were against everything but offered no solution
poor naive girls were taught humility and to be nurturing and matronly, each little broken-winged bird is meant to be yours to care for (but be quiet about it, be quiet and tolerate — tahamol, tahamol — one of the first words i learned)
Eh, I kind of always rolled my eyes at these types, but this is definitely a thing with young women.

This is a beautiful post:

Can we just observe when he says “communicate their feelings and just enjoy each other’s company” what we see is people just staring on their phones. No one is interacting with another person.

Aren’t we mindless zombies already?
I’m seriously tired of the message ‘technology has made us all zombies and we don’t talk to each other anymore’. Yes, there are serious problems. Yes, there is a large amount of room for improvement.

But you know what I did before technology? You know what I did before I had a phone?

Nothing. When I was in school I brought novels with me every day and I read them. I didn’t talk. I managed to make a few friends and only had fun with them because they forced me to do things that I hated. I don’t like parties and clubs and other stuff, every single bit of that was hell for me, because I like quiet and suck at conversation and places like that were nothing but balls of stress to me.

If not for technology, I would still be a miserable pile of constant anxiety, afraid to break out of a routine for fear I’d do/say something wrong and stupid. I never talked or socialized and when I did muster up the nerve to speak it was always awkward or too blunt. I became known as a cold-hearted ***** who was mean to everyone, even though what I mostly did was go home and cry and call myself stupid.

Computers changed all of that for me, showed me for the first time that there were people like me. The better tech got, the more I opened up. But I still was pretty alone when not around people I knew, because I’m not a talker, not really.

Chatting online - chat rooms, emails, lj comms, fanfiction, all of that taught me how to be social. All of that helped me be braver, made me more willing to talk to people anywhere, everywhere. It’s less overwhelming to me now to have to go into a strange room and talk to people. I don’t go deer in the headlights now when someone randomly starts talking to me.

My phone also helps when I’m being harassed. Back when I didn’t have a phone, if the nutjobs on the bus or in the airport started harassing me, I had no choice but to endure it until it was over or try to say something or just leave and risk whatever the **** happened next. Now? I always have my phone. I can always call and say ‘talk to me so this person leaves me alone’. I can text someone to come rescue me at the bar. I can ****ing call for help at the drop of a dime if I have to. Airports are no longer a terrifying place where I will be stuck for hours with no one to talk to unless I want to risk an uncomfortable, even dangerous, situation.

Technology made me more aware of the problems and challenges that other people face. It showed me a broader world. It’s made me more patient with people, it’s made me more determined to remember that you never know what someone is going through.

If not for technology, I never would have been brave enough to try writing. I doubt I’d be an author right now. I certainly never would have met this crazy chick who was living in Vermont and was just as miserable as me. I never would have emailed her every morning and night and texted all through work and wound up with my best friend and current roommate slash business partner.

So don’t ****ing tell me that technology is turning us into zombies that don’t communicate.

And people don’t just enjoy each other? that’s such ********. I was at a concert just a couple days ago. The radio was playing while they waited for the show to start, and Gangnam Style came on. The entire ****ing building exploded with people dancing and cheering and laughing and having a good time together for no reason more than we were all amused as **** that song came on the radio.

I see that kind of thing happen all the time. We’ll randomly be talking about something on someone’s phone at a restaurant and the waiter will chip in because he recognizes it. I’ve shot the **** with so many people over something that was happening on someone’s phone. People I may not have talked to otherwise.

Technology is quite literally one of the main reasons I live a brighter, louder, happier life than I would have otherwise. Like goddamn hell am I a zombie.

Ugh, man-sitting. MALES!
Ain't nobody got time for your sweaty balls sob stories.
For the love of Gawd. Please tell us where you put the body farms. We don't need to get that confused with the really real hidden bodies. Thanks in advance!

When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

So my period is 5 days late. I got a negative result on the pregnancy test, but...
Big chop: 5/30/10
CG, clarify with Aveda Brilliant Shampoo when needed
Dense, medium-fine strands, lowish porosity. Avoiding glycerin outside the shower.
Cowash:Suave Coconut Conditioner.

Moodydove, it's only five days. Just try not to stress out and wait. Even I've had delays, and my periods are very regular (of course I knew I wasn't pregnant because I can't get none).
But gurl, you had le sex and didn't announce it to us deprived camels on

Living near 2 Forensic Anthropology research centers can be entertaining. Oh yes, it can.

^ side note: I have always been interested in that, and forensic psychology.

Im not even Catholic. Why did I give up pizza?!? Eff this noise.
I was not happy that my nephew (5) threw up all over my floor (and boots) because he was sitting at the table instead of on the bed with the trash can as directed. Seeing as how he may have appendicitis, I forgive him.

When they transferred him to the main campus of the hospital, he said "is this where Grandma died?"

Damn. This is hard
