Furthermore, Toj, you had a very very very difficult time reading and comprehending a dear Abby or dear Amy letter where the guy said his gf expects him to do everything around the house, while she does nothing and couldn't get it through you thick skull that the fact that he didn't want to do everything around the house, while his gf did nothing, didn't somehow mean he did nothing and she did everything.
I highly doubt someone who is ^^^^^ that f'ing retarded is equipped with the tools necessary to have discussions about student counsel, much less national politics.
:D
She's not trying to distance herself. She doesn't seem interested to respond to your rant. My take. Sure sounds like a rant. Accusing, veering off subject from gays to the military, etc.

Free country and all that.

I guess if you spout it you think it means you're on subject.

Awww, poor puppy! I like her dad's take on it:
Meredith's father Joe felt helpless for his family during the ordeal.

Ahem:

Remove him/her from your feed. Hide and block them so that you *can't* see this stuff. Maybe, a decade or so down the road you can re-friend him/her, but for now, you don't need to keep having salt rubbed into the wound.
Oh, that is my plan: to block him from my news feed. But I can't do it on my phone and don't have enough time during layover to get on the computer so I'll do it tonight.

Thanks guys. I chatted on the phone with A for a few minutes after I first saw Facebook and that calmed me down some. About to take off from Charlotte and by the time I get to Vegas, I'll be determined to have a good time.

Now if the guy next to me would just stop coughing.....

Whew, jmw.

So... I'm just asking... it it just that the FB app doesn't let you change that specific setting via iphone? I haven't hunted around FB much on my ipad at all.

Hey, folks with iphones and ipads (and I assume, other smart phones that can use apps?), I don't remember whether I mentioned this:

appsgonefree

I downloaded this app per the recommendation of a couple of geek coworkers and I am finding the variety of apps (each day) to be really good. Games for toddlers, young kids, older kids, adults, tools to help you manage various aspects of life, apps to help you scrap book or alter photos, etc. Very fun. And once ou download the app, it's free for life, so you can delete it to save space on your device, then re-download it later.(I plan to make a list of the apps I delete, b/c I have been downloading games for Nick's kids, to be used ONLY IN AN EMERGENCY, so I don't want to keep them on there all the time.)

Anyway, it's just very cool. And once I downloaded that app, I went back as far as the calendar in the app would let me (about 2 weeks?) and I was able to download quite a few apps from previous days (if an app's free offer is expired, it's very obvious).

I just saw on Facebook that Jasper's girlfriend went to Colorado with him this weekend. This was a trip for school that has been booked since last fall. I'm sitting at the airport waiting to leave for Vegas and am trying not to cry. And failing. Damnit I was doing better! But was afraid of getting blindsided by something like this.
Damn, I'm sorry.

My only other long term relationship--we broke up like 8 years ago (holy crap...) after 7 years together--had a pic of a woman on his profile recently and I gotta say, I still was taken aback a little. Even though I'm freaking married.

We're not fb friends. He tried to add me in '08 when I joined. Nope. Nope. Nope.

Been an interesting weekend with my houseguests. We started talking to them about wedding planning and all that goes into it and how much stuff costs and my SIL ended up crying. I don't think they have considered much at all realistically.

Now they want to switch schools b/c they hate ONU. What it actually is, is *she* hates it because she gets along with nobody. Sounds like she's the floor b1tch that freaks out when anyone makes noise. She's isolated herself because she has no roommate and spends all her time with the fiance. Socially, she's never been stable. Doesn't seem to get that the problem is her.

Holy cow, did I have one crazy, freaky night! Some tequila, a bon-fire... we've done things I've NEVER... well, never mind. Happy Saturday!
So I have been out in River North for dinner and drinks with girl friends. Craft cocktails by mixologists. The neighborhood is swarming with 20-30 somethings in green and very drunk and rowdy.
So upon reflection ( somewhat drunken but still...), it occurred to me that what you were talking about with the bon-fire was singing Kumbaya and making s'mores?

Seems that if he were talking gay stuff you would be all over that.

She is so NOT ready to get married. So what's the plan for after they do the deed? They going to move in to your spare room and live while they go to school locally then?

Maybe she should start (now) applying for school elsewhere, like maybe in another state (maybe a couple states away) for the fall semester. Seriously, I'm not being a smarta$$ now, I think it would do her (anyone really) to get far enough away from home that they can't return easily/often.

It pretty much forces them to grow the hell up and deal with real life (as real as college gets) and do stuff like make friends, compromise, learn to work with others, get a job and earn money...and on and on.

Hey guys. So I'm in Vegas! I had a great time last night playing craps with my boss and her husband. Today had its ups and downs both at the tables and in general, but the weather here is BEAUTIFUL and I had a beer at Serendipity 3 (no, it's not just ice cream! at least not here) and sat outside and people-watched and cheered myself up. Getting ready to go out tonight and see some old friends. Happy St. P's Day!
