Like jmw we can say things here but not too much. Argue positions, gripe or talk or praise SO's, talk about intimate stuff that probably doesn't come up at home.
Pellen/Pelly is taking on a life of her own. If someone called me by Pelly IRL, I am pretty sure I would answer.
Anyone else notice this?
HA!!!! I have had "redheadwglasses" as an online screen name for over 15 years, so yeah, I identify with it!

Maybe? Topix is the only one I use Matilda for. I do actually respond to my gmail handle, I think my friends came up with it.

I haven't seen a ton of her show, but what I have seen has me cracking up.

I don't remember now... She might've been.

It might be the wine talking, but I thought Snooki & Gianni's take on being new parents was kind of sweet.

I've seen Snookie talk about her kid, and maybe it's because she's not doped or drunk, but she seems...like not a complete trainwreck. Like there's hope for that child after all.

Since my kids basically picked my name, I totally identify with it.

And if you'll recall, you did answer to PEllen when we met for lunch.

From what little I've read, she comes from a loving family, parents are still married... maybe happily? I think she may have some decent role models. Time will tell.

We do answer to those names. I have been called Moon for so long it seems simply a different form of my name. Same with Bear.

Can we say overrated? Or maybe I'm just bitter.

I think we've been Bear and Moon since we had America Online through phone connection and Windows 3 point-something.'93? 94?
Yeah. We do too.
