Dickie and I are getting an unexpected date night tomorrow night; it seems the girls talked the MIL into a sleepover. We talked about it last night and decided to go see a movie.
Well, the movie choices currently out there are so pathetic that we've decided to go out for dinner and get a movie on-demand instead. <shakes head> I cannot believe there is NOTHING out there that we'd be willing to blow $20+ on. Simply pathetic.

Yes. It is a Woody Allen movie with Cate Blanchett

Except the risk for multiples is greatly increased when you are getting fertility treatments.
But it does not increase so much that a multiple pregnancy is a higher probability than a single. The probability for a single is still higher. Still the better bet if you want in on that action.

If you take gamble, any gamble in life, where your desired outcome is a low probability( playing lotto, spinning the roulette wheel), you have little to complain about. But trying to have a child? The more likely outcome is one. They are not out of line for not being happy with the less likely outcome of two. They WOULD be out of line if they let this initial unhappiness alter how they parent.

And they could have aborted one of the fetuses. COuples with multiples from fertility drugs do that all the time.
Uless I misread the article, aborting is only an option when the number of fetuses is greater than 2.

They go through all that, get what they were trying for and then complain.
But they didn't get what they were trying for. They wanted one, not 2. You people are acting like they got an extra hamster or goldfish. An extra child is a huge life difference.

Like to see it, we don't go to movies much, cause of all the cable stuff....haven't been since War Horse, which was good, but i thought the ending coulda been better, especially for a Speilberg film.....

I looked it up and, please please please do not take offense at this, but I loath this kind of movie.

I do like Cate Blanchett though.

OK totally missed that it was Woody Allen. Still not enough to make me interested.

Just not my thing.

Sorry dude, but I blame you.
You are entertaining these freaks and they know they can fall back on you (read: use you) when it's convenient for them.

Put on your big boy panties and stop allowing them to use you as an emotional tampon.

Okay, guys...I'm about to call this guy and let him know there is no spark.
I mean, 2 months and nothing...it should happen in 2 months, eh?
I can't even kiss him (he does have the stinky breath issue). Should I mention it? I wonder if that weren't a barrier, would the sparks appear...?

Just saw an example of the practice I learned from matilda: vague-booking.

Friend posted a message saying she's going to another state for the next year. Gives no reason why. So of course the questions come. No answers yet.

Lady replaces traditional “Here Comes the Bride” wedding march with herself singing Buck Cherry's “Crazy Bitch” as she dances down the aisle.

Some lyrics for those that don't know it:

Break me down, you got a lovely face
We're going to your place, and now you got to freak me out
Scream so loud, getting fluckin' laid
You want me to stay but I got to make my way

Hey! You're a crazy betch
But you fluck so good I'm on top of it
When I dream I'm doing you all night
Scratches all down my back to keep me right on

Hey! You're a crazy betch
But you fluck so good I'm on top of it
When I dream I'm doing you all night
Scratches all down my back to keep me right on
