And I didn't hear this from Fox news, so way to demonize an organization you know nothing about.
Thirdly, I will not believe the timing of this is mere coincidence. This is the type of story that can unseat a president, especially of it relates to benghazi.
But go ahead and keep thinking everything is fine, there's nothing to see here, your government will take care of everything.

He's a retired General so, he was off duty for that. He was a spy at the time so, I'll refer you to Bond, James Bond for the sexploits allowed in that occupation. Bond, at least, had a license to do that. Maybe our CIA only get learner's permits?

The problem with unseating this president is that the same folks who want to do it for Benghazi, RIGHT NOW(!) are the same folks who wanted to impeach him November '08 to January '09...before he was actually president. Four m-effing years later and none of you people comprehend that impeachment is a process, not a conclusion. You might recall Bill Clinton was impeached. They did NOT take him out and shoot him. He kept his job and is still quite popular and well thought of in politics. He's the only ex-president to be invited to a convention in this century! The BS from Fox about Benghazi is as stoopid as "Fast & Furious" and means as much as internet petitions regarding secession. After this fails, Fox will find something else to jazz up the ratings.

Riiiiiight. Because you don't demonize anyone without less-than-complete information, do you?

How much is it selling for?

we don't know yet... that's low on the list of priortities to deal with. it's not bothering anyone right now ;-), so it'll get to hang out by itself in the garage, perhaps until after the funeral. we don't need to liquidate assets to keep her where she's at.

i was abso-fricken-lutely stunned at some of hte prices high mileage cars of teh same vintage are getting... i googled, KBB'ed, and Edmonds'ed to see waht's out there, and holy crap. 100+k miles and still asking near to $5K!

A few friends told me "don't clean your place, it's going to the bank, it's not like you're getting checked out for your deposit.

But I can't do that. I'm cleaning as I go. Everything is getting a damp rag or a good scrubbing or SOMETHING. It's easy when nothing is there.

CHecked out the paint last night and today -- the bedroom is kinda pink (ick) at night with the ceiling light, but today in the natural daylight (I opened the blinds), it's a lovely deep lilac color. Nice. Kitchen is okay -- blech blue countertops, formica, oh well, I get a gas stove, so I'll take that over nicer countertops any day.

Now I'm on the hunt for a kitchen cart on wheels, with a *cutting block/workable surface*, under 36" high. It's not easy. 36" is standard height. I've found three at shorter heights, but were way too small or had something else severely wrong with them.

I'm well aware of the process and remember Clinton, but thank you.

Your paranoia of fox news is similar to the right winger's paranoia of Obama.

So Jasper just got a job offer at the company where my friend A works (the one with the controlling boyfriend). Half of me is happy for him and the other half is wondering how in the hell I'll ever move on if my ex works with my best friend. She's in the office and he'll be in the field, and his territory is the area in which he lives, not near me or A, but still....

do you have a container store near you? they have a lot of custom options. we got a wine rack there made of components, so we had 2 top shelves, two bottom shelves and one of the wavy wine shelves. worked well in our old place, doesn't work conceptually (or spatially) upstairs in our new place, and is too tall to fit downstairs, so it sits in the garage...

So.... she'll likely never see, hear from, or talk to him?

Simple, don't ask about him and don't have her tell you anything. Drama evaded.

It will be more difficult b/c you'll hear about him but you and Jasper seem to have remained friends anyways. I think after you have that first date with whomever and after your transition boyfriend (you'll probably have one of those eventually), it will get easier. Time heals all wounds. Trite but true. Hang in there.

She'll probably see him at least once a month, definitely more often than that in the beginning, and they'll talk every time he signs a new client (he'll be doing sales, she's a manager who oversees implementation). They won't be side by side every day but they'll definitely be in contact a lot. It's a small company.

I just have to take everything day by day like I've been doing. None of us are drama-mongers.

Thanks. I think this is all true, and we're all mature adults. Who knows, if there's a reason for everything then maybe it'll be a good thing for A to have Jasper around when the poo hits the fan with her boyfriend...? I'm reaching, I know.
