I try to make sure our daughter (14) realizes how much work LordSparrow does around the house. She tends to see more of the work I do, and I don't want her to get the impression that he doesn't do (at least) his share. We try to split things up by preference as much as possible while keeping things fair and accounting… » 8/29/14 3:54pm Yesterday 3:54pm

I almost lost it on some meathead at the dog park with his intact pit bull one day. He spent an hour by turns egging his dog on and berating him. A constant stream of "Yeah! You get 'im! Get it!" and "Don't let him do that to you! Stop being a f*g! You're embarrassing me!" loud enough for the whole park to hear. He… » 8/29/14 1:19pm Yesterday 1:19pm

I know too many of those. Funny thing is, one off my closest friends actually is really well-connected in Hollywood and she's as far from that type as you can get. Its almost like she doesn't feel the need to broadcast it to inflate a tiny ego or something. Weird, right? » 8/28/14 1:19pm Thursday 1:19pm

The sun makes me feel awful. In practically no time my skin gets bright red, my head throbs, and I start feeling just gross. Even if I don't burn-which happens lightening fast-my skin feels hot and sore, sometimes until the next day. There's also a lot of skin cancer in my family, so yeah, all kinds of reasons to… » 8/26/14 5:31pm Tuesday 5:31pm

Our dog is most definitely my dog and I try not to let on how much I love it. When we're all on the couch, I'm the one he has to cuddle up to. I can get him to go pay attention to someone else for a bit, but within a couple minutes he's stealthily eased back to me. It makes sense since I'm home with him so much more… » 8/26/14 4:16pm Tuesday 4:16pm

I shouldn't have a problem with this, but I do. I'm an outgoing person, very friendly, almost always happy to chat (sometimes I'm just busy and want to get my shit done), there's no reason I can find that I shouldn't be able to make friends. But I don't. The few adult friendships I've attempted in the last several… » 8/26/14 3:50pm Tuesday 3:50pm

They like to wash their food. I'm not even joking. We had tons of raccoons where I used to live and they would steal cat food out of the bowl on our porch. They would carry it to the irrigation ditch and rinse each piece before eating them. It was hilarious. » 8/26/14 1:20pm Tuesday 1:20pm

I think you do well not to put a label on the character, even if it seems to fit. It's never been said that he's Ace, so I don't think it's anyone's business insisting he is. Yeah, I know, it's a character not a person, but I think he still gets to make that call (or have it made for him by the writers, as it were).… » 8/26/14 10:42am Tuesday 10:42am

I did my 8th grade science fair project on sleep deprivation and its effects on school performance. One of the recommendations I made to help fix the issue was to start school later. We had to be there by 7:15. I was suffering a horrendous not of insomnia and hasn't gotten to sleep before 3am in over a month, some… » 8/25/14 2:31pm Monday 2:31pm
