Exactly. Typically, if my friends and I are having a back-and-forth texting conversation, one of us will say "Okay gotta go, later" or something similar to indicate we're done texting for a while, so the other person knows that the convo is over for now and to not expecting another msg right away.
you text the way i instant message. IM, i treat like a back and forth semi immediate convo. i treat texting like email.

Look at it as a teaching moment. From now on, ask yourself WWSD (what would Sublime do).

But even if ti was a plausable thing (ralphing into the bowl), the two texts would still appear together
(wanna come over)
(well, whats it gonna be, I got plans to make)

Even if they were 40 minutes apart.

I don't get that. I have friends who step out all the time. None of my business as far as I'm concerned. I'm not the relationship police.
Not just that... going home with someone she JUST met isn't safe.

Maybe it's a girl thing. If I was getting wasted and hooking up with strangers, in a relationship or not, I would want a good friend to give me a reality check.

I know I can't change other people's choices, but as a friend I do feel like it's the right thing to do to call them on it if they're acting crazy. Like I did with A.

You have them when you're not in a committed relationship. If you are in a committed relationship it's no longer a one night stand, it's cheating.

"People" can do whatever they want.*I* don't want to have one-night stands and if I have a friend who I know feels the same way, I'll try to help her not make a decision she's going to regret. To each his/her own I guess.

Just to clarify, do you think your typical 50 something year old woman would have to get over a yuck factor to date someone that looked like...
Harrison Ford?
Al Pacino?
James Brolin?
Jimmy Cann?
Sam Elliot?
Chuck Norris?
I know you didn't ask me, but, in order...

Yes, yes, no, yes, yes. The only one on the list I would even consider is James Brolin, and that's just "consider." <shrug>

Or recovering.

How was everyone's NYE? Mine was pretty lame but I actually liked it that way. Not really looking forward to 2013, thirteen is an unlucky number anyway. Wish we could just skip over this year because 2014 is an election year and I'm optimistic we'll retake not only the Senate, but the state of Illinois, and we can start moving in the right direction again.

so i thought NYE couldn't get much lamer than the great puke fest of 2008/09, but i found a new low... nothing like having a house full of people and no one to hang with... hubby, bro & neighbor were "being boys" and SIL, neighbor & kids were "being Polish" - the only words i understood were people's names... this is teh same crowd that i left in 08/09, the boys got hammered and all 3 of them got sick all over the place (thus the title puke fest).

thougth it might be a little better (a) at my house and (b) with the kids hanging around, but no. so i went off on my own around 8... i had a quiet evening unto myself.

My NYE was nice. I went to a friend's house and it was a small group, we had sparklers and party hats and wine and food. Peaceful compared to all the drama I've had lately.

Today has been very quiet. I cooked my grandmother's stuffed pepper recipe all by myself for the first time ever and it turned out good.

I just took a 2-hour nap and am debating if I want to walk down the street to the sports bar for tonight's bowl game or not.

I had good intentions of going to hear a friend's band, but I fell asleep at 9:30 and when I got up it was next year.

However, Husband, hearing my computer lamenst has offered me one of his towers. He upgraded his office systems and this was now extra.
It is a Vostro which I have never heard of but as long as it works , teh price is right. Spent today transferring things. All that is left is my itunes account which I think I will just download from my iPod. Husband wants me to move itunes to teh cloud and do it that way but I get confused easily.

(Northwestern won and NIU is playing. Life is good)
