He REALLY WAS TRYING TO LIGHTEN THE MOOD. He and Jess have an online friendship that goes beyond Topix and she has said before that he's one of the first ones to offer support privately when things are down in the dumps.
Are you going to go after me next for my post about the mucinex and my boss's dog?
You're sexy when you go off on someone.

And you're hot when you post about mucinex and dogs!

Haha! Could you just wear a hat after lunch? Seems a lot simpler.
In the beginning of an episode of What Not To Wear when they show the girl running errands in workout clothes or whatever, I'm like... so? She's supposed to dress like June Cleaver to go to the grocery store?
Yeah, they're always expected to wear $200 jeans and heels when walking the dog or toting three toddlers around. Um...no.

Ha! Dickie played that video for the girls and every once and awhile, I'll hear one of them singing "ain't nobody got time fo dat" over and over and over. It's really cute.

Just pretend you're really cold and keep your hat on. Or you could go out and get some of our magic hair potion: club soda in a spray bottle. I don't know how it works, but my hair always looks better after using it.

It does seem like there's a lot of stuff going on, both here and with my IRL friends right now. I do hope for the best for everybody.

To be fair, when I read the mutt's post I thought the same thing as Sam.

How about if we try not telling anyone off today.

Naw, probably won't work.

OMG, that just made me laugh so hard! Rewash your hair on lunch? Why did my autocorrect want to type tree ash instead of rewash? Ha ha!

So forgive me for posting something that wasn't about someone sick or dying or otherwise meaningless affairs of people I don't even know.

Feel better now that you've dished out your daily dose of nastiness?
Stop that! JamWow's response covered all bases. No need to start a fight :P And, I do appreciate you trying to lighten the mood. I was going to ask for people to do that.

The hat I have with me is far more obnoxious than my actual hair, ha ha. Fake fur, ear flaps, etc. I'll stick with the rat's nest.

Thank you everyone for your support and prayers/hugs. They don't think he had a stroke, but something happened and he is now sedated and requires a breathing tube. They are running tests and I just got back from picking up my sister in law at work and bringing her to get her car (she carpools and gets to work at 6 am). My husband left the house at 6.30 am.

I'll need your help keeping distracted today :)

You'd think short hair would be easier. I'm kind of rocking what Anne Hathaway has right now. But my flat iron and hairspray have become necessities instead of optional.

I love a good pixie cut! I even went through jmw's friends on FB to try to find you in case you posted a new pic, but no dice. ;)

You're the ONLY girl? Think maybe they just hired you for office eye candy?

You need to do a better job of looking good for everyone, girl.

Sorry, I lost my chart of who has secret, special relationships with each other. Someone shared a distressing situation, to those not in the know his post came off as dismissive. Please send me a guidebook so I don't make the same mistake again.

Many of my guy friends are fans of the "girls should never have short hair" school of thought. I think some girl look better with shorter hair. Emma Watson is super cute with short hair.

No, I haven't really crossed the fourth wall. Jam knows my real first name, but I think that's it.

The pixie has forced me to be more girly. I went nuts on etsy buying cute headbands. Today, I've got on this bronze-y one with a steampunk octopus on it. Tried to put in earrings this weekend, but one hole is completely shut.:-/ But so far, nobody has called me 'sir', so that's a plus. Might be the boobs.

It's not a secret; Toj can probably google in 2 seconds and find the "history" of Jess & Edog's friendship.

You're always looking for a fight with him and it gets old. And yes, I know he likes to yank everyone's chains but you guys play right into it. I laugh it off instead of let everything get to me.

If a stranger had come in here and made light of Jess's news, it would be a whole different story. But we KNOW edog, whether or not each person likes him.

So this is facsinating to me. Working from home, I have had CNN on in the background, and they have been talking about the Jody Arias trial (the woman who shot and stabbed her bf 27 times). The trial testimony has been very salacious, but the really interesting part is that in Arizona (where the trial is) the jury gets to ask the witness questions. That would be awesome.

I'm jealous; I'd look like a lesbian with that haircut. Not a lipstick one, either.

My friend K had a super short pixie-ish cut for awhile and I loved it. She has dark hair like Anne too.
