There's about a 12" difference between us, and yeah, walking while holding hands can be really awkward. I feel like I have to hold that shoulder up and kind of twist my arm a specific way then turn my wrist at just the right angle and he's trying to let his arm dangle as low as it can and it's a mess. Maybe we're just… » 3/01/15 12:11pm Yesterday 12:11pm

You even see people come in and flat-out say "your entire point is invalid because you don't know the difference between there and their"*. No, asshole. A spelling or grammatical error does not invalidate a person's otherwise solid point. If I am able to get my ideas across well enough that others can understand them,… » 3/01/15 12:03pm Yesterday 12:03pm

We were supposed to have two couples over for dinner and games tonight, but one of the other husbands got a sore throat and I'm on day three of migraine bullshit, so we cancelled. We did make it to our other friend's son's birthday party this afternoon, so we feel sufficiently socialized. I'm glad we cancelled our… » 2/28/15 9:14pm Saturday 9:14pm

It'd be better, I think, if those guys could just bring themselves to ask "is that a menstrual thing?" I mean, I'd still tell them it's none of their damn business because it's still a ridiculous, invasive thing to ask, but at least I could almost respect them afterward. » 2/26/15 9:49pm Thursday 9:49pm

I'm so sick of boobs entirely. Yet I love my girls. But they're such a ridiculous fucking pain in every sense of the word. The best bras I have-the ones I was thrilled to find-are still uncomfortable and still don't quite fit actually right. I've had so many fittings, read so many guides, been to so many stores,… » 2/26/15 9:17pm Thursday 9:17pm

But...why? It's not like not watching a tv show or food review videos is leaving some gaping hole in a person's life. There are restaurants I'm loathe to try because the only person I know who has raved about them is that same type of incredibly obnoxious hipster foodie. I feel like if he loves it that goddamn much,… » 2/26/15 7:49pm Thursday 7:49pm

Your house sounds a lot like our house. We recently splurged on a couple pieces of "real" furniture to replace our discount store and hand-me-down stuff that was falling apart. They sit among the IKEA, Doctor Who posters (framed, because we're classy), Star Wars bobble heads, my grandmother's antiques, and cheesy… » 2/26/15 4:08pm Thursday 4:08pm

Some vets can be really weird about pet weight. We stopped going to one vet a few years ago for a couple reasons, and harping on our cats' weight was one of the biggies. Yes, when we started going there one of them was very overweight. He pointed it out, we stopped free feeding, switched to a better food, he lost… » 2/25/15 1:56pm Wednesday 1:56pm

My grandmother started getting sort of dead spots in her hearing in her 60s or so. Higher tones were the first to go. The family noticed when she started complaining all the time about all these women who spoke so quietly and grumbling about how women these days mumble so much. Encourage your mom to get her hearing… » 2/25/15 1:28pm Wednesday 1:28pm

I love the meat sales at our grocery store. Once a month or so they do a buy-one-get-one on all beef, so we grab whatever we can afford and stick it in the chest freezer (which has paid for itself and then some in meat savings). Now and then they do buy-one-get-two on all meat, and it's like Christmas. To anyone… » 2/25/15 11:50am Wednesday 11:50am

One of my friends had been going to her family doctor for over 15 years with the same recurring, odd symptoms. He kept brushing her off, calling her silly, telling her "you're young, you're thin, you're healthy, enjoy your life and stop worrying." She moved to another state at 27, switched to a new doctor there, and… » 2/25/15 10:56am Wednesday 10:56am

The asexuals I've known (not demisexual) either don't have sex ever or do it once in a while to please their partner but don't enjoy it. Some I've read writings from are so disgusted by sex you might as well be talking about necrophiliac bestiality. » 2/24/15 2:31pm Tuesday 2:31pm

My little brother was obsessed with virgin mudslides when he was about 10. One day out at lunch with our parents he said his mudslide tasted "different, but good" so I (12) tried it to see if I could tell what the difference was. Yeah, the difference was a whole lot of booze. I almost didn't say so because I kinda… » 2/23/15 3:56pm 2/23/15 3:56pm

I a tactic in 9th grade. The guy (a 19-y-o senior varsity wrestler) already thought I was a witch and had been telling me for months in great detail how he and his buddies were going to burn me at the stake, so I decided to roll with it. One day when he got in my face, calling me all manner of vile things, I snapped a… » 2/22/15 12:03pm 2/22/15 12:03pm

This is going to be a long day. We're having Little's birthday party at my parents' house from 1 to 7 because for some ungodly reason my mom thought six hours was totally reasonable. I promised we'd be over there by 10 to help finish setting up (we do huge themed parties that require a lot of prep) so we'll be there… » 2/21/15 10:33am 2/21/15 10:33am
