Nightmare insomnia is TERRIBLE. You know you need to sleep, and you desperately want to, but you can't let yourself for fear of your own subconscious. Such a mindfuck. I get super vivid dreams, like you, and that makes it worse. Not being able to clearly differentiate between dream and memory is truly maddening. I'm… » 8/30/14 3:40pm Saturday 3:40pm

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 Friday 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 Friday 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 8/26/14 1:20pm
