Yes but we got engaged first. 6 hours after we met.

I was carefully curling my bangs (back in the 80s), looking up as I did. The curling iron slipped out of my hair and hit my eyeball. It didn’t hurt that much, but I was afraid to go to sleep in case my eye healed stuck shut…
The man making the squinchy face in the second photo is Canada’s former finance minister, who died recently. It’s a tradition for the finance minister to buy new shoes on the eve of the government presenting a new budget, and this photo was probably with a relatively serious political news story… Interesting choice.
Hubby and I went to Sedona Arizona on a whim one terrible Canadian winter that we needed to escape. The crunchy granola folks say the vortexes are magical… I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t experienced it. It was healing both mentally and physically. The spots I saw when I closed my eyes organized themselves into cool zigzag patterns and my dreams were wacky, intense, fun, and fanciful. We went back a few years later with my parents, and my nearly disabled mom was hiking a mile at a time. Magical in the most fundamental way.
#3 so many dimples!
In the words of Phil the bartender on Murphy Brown, regarding Murphy’s mother…. [my name] - one hell of a broad.
My mom used the same wrapping paper for Santa presents as parent presents and I noticed. I think I was 4.
In yoga class with a particularly woo-woo crunchy granola teacher… Someone lets out a fast, not really that surprising considering the position we were in. The teacher says, “oh, isn’t that wonderful! See how relaxed you are? That was perfect….” I’ve never viewed farting the same way again.
Why do people not close the lids of their toilets!!! This and the “poop germs on toothbrushes” paranoia, solved by closing the damn lid…
Cats are Cat-olic. Also Demo-cats if that matters at all.
Put a ziploc over your toothbrush…. OR! Close the toilet lid when you flush, perhaps!?!!?
This is not new. I graduated from university 18 years ago and went through all this stuff. No job in my field for a year, couldn’t even get a job unloading bread at a bakery at 3am. Massive debt, living off parents, illness, depression… Only the fact that we made hay during the tech bubble and got lucky timing in selling houses made us anywhere near solvent today at over 40. Life is hard, folks.
Orchidmg - or you can just close the toilet lid when you flush…

Omg #3. My immigrant and native North American (ie. Canadian Indian) parents, who loved Pierre Trudeau and the Canadian cultural mosaic (as opposed to the American melting pot) are suddenly huge racists!
High school “guidance counselor” (principal who didn’t want to spend extra money for a real one) - “if you know what you want to do, take that at uni. If you don’t know what you want to do, take Arts.” Because that’s all the info a 17 year old needs to plan the rest of their life.
I had gotten out of a long term relationship and wasn’t enjoying dating at all. I told my friend I would marry the next person who asked me. I ended up at a bar only because I wanted to hear the band that was playing, and at a table only because it had a seat available and I vaguely knew a guy sitting there, having taken a class with him years earlier. Husband was there only because he had forgotten his membership card for the good campus bar and had to settle for this one, and was only at that table because he had been in the same residence hall as the same guy I had a class with. He hit on all the girls at the table. I hit on his friend. A few hours later we decided we would get married. We got married a year after. Still married 19 years later.
When you are wearing makeup, you look like everyone else who wears makeup. When you don’t, you look like yourself. Much more interesting.
It was my own wedding. The MC (my husband’s roommate before me) told the story of our meeting, which included me picking him up in a bar, taking him home and taking advantage of his drunk self. My auntie and the minister were less than amused…
Met. Got engaged. Had sex. In that order. All in the same night. Still married 18 years later…
The most important thing in this article is my discovery of the cabinet hole fillers!
I went to see The Vagina Monologues and they were selling chocolate vagina lollipops in the lobby for a fundraiser. I bought three and brought them home to my 16 year old son and his two friends who were sleeping over.
Lol, perfect… I took the same message - no cubs for me, thx..
I guess you missed the part where they explained that to use the product, you stir the drink with your finger with the nail coated in the polish. No consumption required.
As an infertile person I agree with you so much. I was lucky (?) that I also didn’t want a baby for many years. At age 40, I became the mom of a 15 year old. Just curious why you think the adoption question is the WORST. Seriously, not trying to be sarcastic at all. Why is it different from the fertility clinic question?
My kid: You’re a huge bitch! Me: Nah, I’m delightful. Ask anyone.
I see nothing wrong with this advice. Not everyone can get good grades, and good grades should not be equated with intelligence, or bad grades with lack of intelligence. However, polite and kind are things we can all choose to be, and it can’t hurt your chances in life to be pleasant. And chaos isn’t cute, but neither is it professional or respectful. Good advice, delivered badly and sensationalized for a headline.
I would agree with all of these except… THEY WERE ON A BREAK!
You forgot carob. Ew.
I can’t choose between PIVOT and the guys entering their newly won apartment astride the big white plaster dog…
*bawling. Balling is something else completely.
