I really need a vacuum cleaner but do not want one for xmas. Christmas presents should be more about wants than needs. I mentioned it to Nick though and he was smart enough to know that if he bought me a vacuum cleaner for xmas I might actually beat him with it. :)

Men aren't that smart. Immediately start hinting at blow, hookers, and a porsche. That's what I want for Christmas. You already blew your wishlist on a vacuum. :nono

The only hookers I have ever seen were the ones that use to work in the little town I grew up in, they were all big heavy scary women who "performed" for the hispanic migrant workers. So my image might be totally fucked but I am going to pass. I prefer my women to be smaller than a house, bathed and their teeth brushed. Weird I know.

OK I am slightly intrigued to know how someone does a bong hit out of someones ass. Although I have no desire to know what an ass smoothie is.

this was my first question...


... what praytell IS an ass smoothie?

and this was my second.

they were trying to explain to me the difference between fetish webcam stuff and porn, because i asked if our girlfriend took requests.

apparently the bong hit was taken by a guy, blown into her ass and then another guy takes the hit out of the ass.

and the ass smoothie is when a girl gets on her hands or head, dumps a smoothie into her ass, stands up and then drinks it.

*jazz hands*

Here is my question... How does this shit even come up? I mean I hear all this stuff about dirty sanchez, and donkey punches, now ass smoothies and ass bong hits. Who was the first person that said... Hey, do you know what I want to do today?

Monklish
12-17-2009, 07:32 AM
... ass smoothie sounds pretty intense. I thought that the ass bong would've just been using these modified bongs that are held in place by an anus, which I've seen on Stern before. That's much more involved though.

chairmenmeow47

I think the lack of bright colors in my closet stems mostly from always being the heavy kid and not wanting to draw attention to myself. I think the brightest pair of shoes I have ever owned was a white and black pair of nikes with a light yellow swoosh. I need to escape my comfort zone in many aspects of life.

We kind of discussed this a page or two back but I am still sticking with a nice trip somewhere special. Just a weekend away from the everyday stress of life would be the best present I could ever imagine. But I have a lot of life stress and I don't know if your girlfriend does.

I get the not knowing what to get people myself. It is a lot of pressure. I am actually pretty glad I am as poor as I am because it means I don't really have to buy any presents. But I put myself through a lot trying to find the perfect gift. I was searching online forever for a specific football jersey for Nick and finally realized it doesn't even exist (thankfully Dylan informed me of that before I went crazy). Had I not had to spend as much money as I did on some bullshit that popped up I would still be out searching for the perfect gift. Now he gets a cd, if that even.

I bought my own xmas presents.

A sleeveless little black dress from Macy's, and a pair of Asolo hiking boots from Backcountry. I'm happy, and he doesn't have to do a thing. In his defense, I'm very tough to buy for. I'm super low maintenance; I usually don't want anything at all. But I do have very expensive tastes in the things I do want, which usually makes them beyond our means and takes them out of the running anyway.

No, I will not be wearing the boots and dress together.

that totally sounds like my mom. it is so hard to shop for her simply because i can't afford to buy anything she likes. i usually end up going to a store she likes and buying really small items like pocket mirrors or a night light or something.

it's hard for my dad because he has zero taste, lol. he constantly is buying her turquoise or pearl jewelry when she never wears either. the only time she ever seems actually happy with a gift is when i pick it out, lol. the best is that he has also bought her shit she'd NEVER use, such as a leaf blower, air compresser, weed wacker and a chain saw.

My ex brother in law really likes different weird beers and he also loves to golf so one year for christmas when I wasn't broke ass I went to AJ's (specialty grocery store) and bought like six different kinds of specialty beers, and then went to his favorite course and bought him a gift card for a t-time and a bunch of golf balls and other random stuff from their gift shop and put it all in a basket and wrapped it in celephane. He loved it. So maybe beer and just something else he or his family is interested in.

Are they primarily beer drinkers or just drinkers in general? I was going to say port but that would be a toothachingly sweet combination. Or maybe chocolate martini fixings (like godiva liqueur I'm thinking). Good coffee would be great, but I've never been clear on whether that's a risky political move in Seattle.

ive also been told that if i want kids then i should have them now while im young so it wont be difficult in the future.

my buisness....stay out of it.

on a side note ive also found that if you dont have kids, DO NOT try to give advise to those that have children. all you'll hear from them is 'well if you had kids, you would understand.'

fuck that.

I've recently had this conversation with a LOT of friends, as we seem to be at that age where people are trying to figure out what to do child-wise... either they want them but are worried they're too old to get started, don't want them but feel pressured to have them,... There is a lot of pressure on most people to get married and have kids. Several of my friends are not really sure they *want* kids but are getting pressured by their families and SOs to do it anyway. I feel pretty strongly that someone should not have a baby unless they are 100% certain they want that child and want his or her life to change completely to revolve around that child. It feels like too many people enter into the decision without expecting to have to commit to it for at least 18 years.

I guess I'm lucky that, while my extended family still gives me flak, my mom has accepted my decisions and just doesn't ask anymore. In fact she may be a little jealous of the freedom I have and has admitted a few times that she wonders what she would have gotten to do with her life if she hadn't had kids. :)

but laltly we all, including my mother, have had so much fun going out to bars and the casino or having parties that she now doesnt want me to have kids any time soon. haha i thinks its hilarious.

but then a co-worker of mine whose in her late 30s struggled with conceiving for 2 years. now she is happily pregnant but she tell me to make sure i have kids when im young. when i look at her it kinda reminds me that i shouldnt wait too long. besides who wants to be an old mother?! :nono haha

My sister was pregnant with her last child when she was 39. She was such a raving bitch through almost the whole pregnancy. She apologized to all of us after she gave birth. It was bad. She was nothing like that during her first 3 pregnancies. Her husband got an immediate vasectomy after that.

I am a single mother with 2 teenagers, I had my daughter when I was 19 and my son when I was 21. My advice to anyone I talk to is to wait till you are at least 30 before having kids, enjoy your 20's to the fullest because you don't want to be the 30-40 year old out there acting like a 20 year old. And don't let anyone pressure you into it, if you have the slightest doubt in your mind that you are ready, then listen to that voice. I am a firm believer in listening to the voices in my head, they have been right most times.

The chances of that happening aren't really high, I prefer the bad boys, younger then me usually, so the chances of one of them having money aren't all that likely. Most sugar daddys are old guys with saggy balls, I don't like saggy balls.

lol, no, its just my mantra that I say over and over hoping the gods will hear my cries. Although my daughter has said over and over she doesn't want kids for a long while. My brother and his 4 toddlers lived with me on and off for years and my daughter got stuck watching them a lot so she was kind of turned off from the whole kid idea. And they have both seen how much I struggle and have said over and over that they want to have their fun first before having kids. I cross my fingers that they stick to that. They also know that if they were to get in trouble early, they would have to be completely responsible for their child. I have raised mine, I am not raising anyone elses.

i feel like my mom projects this onto me cause she was married with kids in her early 20s. she's always telling me to wait to get married and when people ask her when i'm getting married she gets annoyed.

My mom got married really young but didn't have kids until her late 20's/early 30s. She claims she always said she never wanted kids so she assumed I'd eventually want them too. I think she was projecting more regarding her parents' unhappy marriage than not wanting kids. Whereas I've never wanted them.

When I was engaged, the boy used to lay in bed at night going on at length about all the kids we were going to have and wanting to pick out names and wondering what they'd be like while I laid there very bemused. NOT good foreplay. :nono

Most sugar daddys are old guys with saggy balls, I don't like saggy balls.

Sorry, lurking...

WTF? All balls sag when they're hot. Its to keep them cool. If you don't like saggy balls, turn down the heat. Boxers are warm and lead to saggage, but its reversible in like 30 seconds or so. Rub an ice cube on em... feels neat.

I don't think they sag more as you get older or anything. At least this is the first I've heard of it.

Okay, Ladies, while I may have been able to keep my mouth shut over that pic above yesterday, something's just come up that I'm just a wee bit upset about and thought I'd ask about before I risk the naughty or nice position I'm already in with Santa.

Now, Pete's not exactly a fan of shopping, let alone Xmas shopping. Come to think of it, he's not really a fan of Xmas either. But, he does have a new baby granddaughter and it will be her first Xmas. (I know, she won't have a clue what all the ho,ho,ho is about, but still...) ANYWAY, several weeks ago, I found some items online for both his grandaughter and his daughter and son-inlaw that I thought would be great gifts. He agreed and ordered them. So, for the past few days, I've been hanging around waiting for UPS or whomever to deliver the packages. Last night he find out they were delivered, but not to his P.O. box, or here at the condo. (Great, let the holiday stress begin!)

So, earlier this morning he contacts UPS, the post office, whatever and gets more imformation on the whereabouts of the gifts... And this is where I'm about ready to give a whole new meaning to "Ho,ho,ho..."

Apparently, he gave his P.O. box as the shipping address, and because they don't keep the packages, (Which I find odd.) they look up optional addresses to deliver the things to, and luckily he was able to track them down...At his ex-wife's address. (I know, we should be relieved they were located, right?) He is relieved, as am I, but...Seeing as the box was addressed to him, why would she open it and then HAVE THE AUDACITY TO GIFTWRAP THEM ALONG WITH HER GIFTS WITHOUT EVEN CALLING TO TELL HIM SHE GOT THE PACKAGE??????
While he may be relieved that all's well and the jingle bells can go on, I'm about ready to spread some fucking holiday cheer that's bound to outshine Rudolph in this years Xmas memories!!! Seriously, the "Ho,ho,ho" that's running through my mind right now isn't in the spirit of Xmas, and I'm wondering what you guys would think or feel about this situation? Should I just go and stab Candy Canes into her eyes?

Nice. Thanks for the tip, CP. I've been looking for a good liner since I'm sick of pencils smudging all over the place by the end of the day and I, too, have had troubles with liquid liners. Raccoon eyes are not a good look, whether pencil- or liquid-induced.

Should I just go and stab Candy Canes into her eyes?

well first i would like to comment that last year i too decided to go the online route and bought about 4 people gifts at an online store. i waited for 2 weeks for my package and when i tracked it online it said that it had been successfully delivered. i call the store that i ordered my things from and explained that i never got my package. i called ups and told them the same thing too.

turns out my package was delivered and left outside my door so some person passed by my place and stole it. mind you i have an open front yard on a busy street with no fence/gate.

i was pissed off that i didn't have enough time to reorder the same merchandise and have it delivered before xmas. so i had 3 days left to shop for those 4 people.

my point is, lol, that thank goodness you don't have to go through the stress of figuring out an alternate plan on what do get your family. at least you know your gifts and safe and what the hell they are even wrapped for you. i'm sure you hate the bitch and yea she probably didn't call you guys on purpose but don't make a big scene over it. i'm sure thats what she would have wanted.

and by the way I HATE THE HOLIDAYS!

I don't think it has anything to do with looking like a safe neighborhood. They literally leave my packages on the sidewalk next to the road. :) The drivers are probably overworked and don't give a shit. I go out of my way to try not to ship anything to myself using Fedex or UPS, or try to send stuff to my office instead.

I have the opposite problem. I do live in a safe neighborhood, in an apartment with a walled patio. We have literally received thousands of packages since living here, with no problem. But, sometimes for some odd reason, they decide I have to be home, and then I have to drive out to the UPS, FedEx or USPS building to pick it up. But, that is better than getting things stolen I guess.

You're right, there's no sense in creating more conflict, seeing as obviously, "The Plaintiff" (As Pete calls her.) has apparently created enough already. I'll be sure to thank her with a gift when I see her next for the trouble she went to in giving us 2 Silent Nights in a row around here...

OK girls, give me some advice...

We all had that one guy, you know the one, that we would have followed to the end of the earth even though he was a complete loser. We realize the level of the loserness now but back then there is nothing our mothers, sisters or friends could have ever said to change our minds. He was "THE ONE".

I know that as a mother no matter what I do or say, my daughter won't get it, in fact, the more I push for her to dump him, the more attractive he will appear.

So here is my question, what is the one thing you wish someone would have said that would have gotten through? Is there anything, or do I just sit and wait and hope (or hire a hit man)?

But unless you have been that girl, with that guy, that everyone else knows is bad news but for some reason you think you can "fix" them, then it is hard to know what it is like, to then see your daughter making the same bad choices.

I will continue to give advice to her, and as a mother I will do what I can to keep them apart, which means putting her back on house arrest and hope that he gets locked up for awhile. But she will do whatever she is going to do I guess. I can only hope for the best.

The only thing I can add here is that you want to make sure you are not painting the guy as completely evil. Not sure how to put this... I guess I am thinking of the Mom who decides they guy is no good, (and she may be right), but then she is so negative about every aspect of the person that she seems irrational, which may help to fuel the girl's feeling that she knows better than Mom. You know, kind of like the "Just say no to drugs" type of campaign that lies about certain drugs, so the kids think the adults are not trustworthy and don't listen when they are given good advice. Am I making sense?

Then maybe the next time things would be fine and she'd just shake her head. After 7 years of this rediculous tennis match of my emotions and love life, I think she knew better than to offer anything more than her shoulder, and even said it wouldn't matter what she to9ld me...I was gonna do what I was gonna do anyway...Yep, mom was right!

I know she will eventually get it, but we aren't talking just normal run of the mill douchbag, he is a real loser. Last night he got into an "altercation" with my daughter at KFC and when the cops came to question him he went completely crazy and tried to fight the cops. This in itself tells me that if he hasn't hit my daughter yet, he is well on his way. Boys who punch walls, cars and cops don't find any problem in striking their girlfriends. They had to call me to come get my daughter and I got to sit and watch him get hog tied and padding put on his face so he wouldn't keep bashing his face against stuff. That's a special kind of crazy right there.

So, even if I wanted to, at this point I can't be nice to the guy, I tried in the past but I just can't. If I saw him I would probably hurt him.

Thank you for the advice. I have pretty much set my mind to that. I just worry because my daughter is 17 and already has a tendency to run. She has run away about 4 times already, one time making it all the way to Venice beach with the loser boy. He is 18, she was 16, I thought I could get him for kidnapping or taking a minor across state lines but no such luck, apparantly 16 is the age of consent when it comes to that. So I have to weigh what I do against the chances of her running. So I talked to her PO, she is going back on house arrest, he is not allowed near or around our house, if she fucks up again she goes back to juvi. I have decided that I just can't keep trying to keep her out of Juvi, if she doesn't care then why should I, right?

I know, and it does hurt my heart deeply, believe me. But I have tried really hard to get through to her, even spoke to her as an adult and explained how these men work. They find a girl with low self esteem and begin to control them. First they seem like great guys, all lovey dovey and sweet, then they start to push you away from your friends, telling you how they don't like this person or that person and you start to feel the same way because here is this great guy who is right about everything else. Then you see the angry side, they start punching walls, cars, other people, they start controlling you, telling you where to be and when to be there. Then the next thing you know you have no friends or family and the guy starts punching on you, and you have no where to run, or so you think.

I have been there, I have laid it out on the line for her and explained what happens. She LOVES him, he is her soul mate, blah blah. I would rather her be in jail then the morgue.

While your daughter might think she is in the middle of a control drama with you, in actuality, the control drama is with her boyfriend. It may not be sensible to adhere to someone like the troubled youngster your child is involved with, unfortunately, it isn't all that uncommon (not trying to trivialize your situation, mind you). Still, she has to acknowledge this or she won't get it, but it's all about control.

This guy more than likely uses one of the following movidas to influence you daughter:

-Proud and detached(your daughter might be impressed with this seemingly independent demeanor since she herself is on the cusp of adulthood)

-The "Poor me" (aimed at lowering her defenses and winning her sympathy)

-The interrogatory approach(in order to create confusion/doubt)

-The intimidator(being a tough guy can get you places in the world, but it'll be just a matter of time until that boy runs into a bigger tough guy, and you don't want your daughter to be around for that)


Does she read books? If so, The Celestine Prophecy might be insightful for someone in such a happenstance.

Hey loca, in terms of the situation with your daughter, I don't know if this advice is helpful in any way, but it sounds like she needs to learn to value herself without having a (loser "soul-mate" dbag) guy around. Obviously, you can't break them apart, but maybe you could encourage or suggest that she takes up a hobby/activity/interest that is entirely hers.

Here's hoping he stays in jail for a while...best of luck. I shudder remembering what a pill I was as a teenager, and I was a relatively good girl.

i cannot tell you how much it FUCKING ENRAGES me when guys make comments that i must be pmsing. i would so much rather be called a heinous bitch than have my opinions, however harsh they may be, invalidated on account of being misconstrued as hormonal bullshit.

not all girls even get bitchy on their period. some girls are just bitches. if you don't like whats coming out of a woman's mouth, address that issue, don't be a snarky ass piece of shit. AHHH!!

okay...loca i'm really really sorry to hear that. my only advice would be to keep strong and do what you feel is best for your daughter while you still can (i wouldn't burn her letters, that's a federal offense and all). she's going to be 18 and out of your control any day now, try and reach her while you still have the authority. there is no way she will resent you forever. perspective is a powerful thing.

loca i was afraid you were gonna say shes a runner. in that case yes i too hope shes on house arrest because at least you can keep an eye on her.

i think guedita has a good point too. loca your daughter needs to value herself and know that if a man is treating her like shit, shes knows when to leave him. help her realize she doesnt deserve to be beat/treated like dirt and theres other men out there that can treat her so much better.

you got any of those battered womans shelters around your town? i would try to see if you can have her talk to some of those women that have been through it besides you.

I have to say though, as I get older I notice the hormonal bullshit a lot more then I ever did before. I can definately estimate what days people should just not talk to me, which is something I had never noticed when I was younger. But until men know what its like they should just learn to shut the fuck up. Oh wait, I might be PMS'ing. ;)

Thank you girls on all the advice, I actually think I might look into taking her to talk to other battered women. I have been talking to her PO a lot about the situation too and so he will be a good resource for me to find out where I can find a shelter.

So Nick and I did our gift exchange last night, I had given him a list of things I wanted, he gave me a gift card to get my toes done which was on the list but then I got a gift card to Dillards as well. I never shop there but thought ok, I can get myself something pretty to wear for new years. But then he tells me that he wants me to go buy myself a new bra or two. Apparently the fact that my bra straps fall all the time bothers him as well and he wants me to find a bra that fits. So, how much do they charge to actually measure you and tell you what size to wear?

locachica73
12-29-2009, 06:33 AM
Those stores are all super small sizes. I am at an awkward place right now, I still need a big girl store for pants but can shop in a regular store for shirts, by regular store though I mean a store that normal women shop at, not teens who never eat. I went to the mall last night... let me say it again, I hate the mall. First off, I go to Dillards because that is where Nick got me a gift card. He mentioned that he knew I needed bras so I start in the bra dept. I have one question... WHO THE FUCK PAYS $78 FOR A BRA???? He gave me $25, the only bras I could afford or would even be willing to pay for were on the clearance rack. And of course none of them were basic black or white, all funky weird colors. I then thought, fuck it, I will buy bras at target and find something else here. I found a hoodie I liked... $118. For a hoodie? Really? I couldn't even find a t-shirt for under $50. So I ended up with some bright ass colored bras, YAY.

Then I headed to Lane Bryant for jeans. They use to carry thier brand of 7 jeans that actually fit a girl with ass and a waist the last time I shopped. I don't know what size I wear anymore so I took several styles/sizes in. I tried them on and couldn't get them over my ass because they were all the "slim" cut. Why on earth would anyone make "skinny" jeans in fat girl sizes? It is just wrong.

Then I tried a couple of the other stores you all mentioned. Thinking I could get a couple xtra large shirts... All of the xtra large, large and medium are sold because apparently those are the only real size they carry. All that was left on the racks were XS & XXS... WHO THE FUCK WEARS THIS SHIT? They were damn near the width of my hand from fingertip to wrist at the waist.

At that point I gave up and bought myself a big fat burger at sonic. Shopping is depressing. Either you can't fit in it or you can't afford it. Bleh.

OK sorry, I had to rant a minute. I am trying Fashion Bug tonight. I just want a new pair of fuckin pants. :)

locachica73
12-29-2009, 06:47 AM
I don't know that I have ever spent over $15 on a bra. I did however have the old lady measure me and apparently I have been doing it right for the past 20 years. I wear a 36B. The bras I got were regularly $45 but I got them on sale for $10 though. I am super cheap, which I guess is why I have such a hard time shopping. I just can't fathom spending over $20 on a shirt, $10 on a bra and $5 on panties. The only thing I will splurge on is shoes occasionally (like once a year maybe) and jeans because they are so hard to find in my size/body type.

Chiming in only because I have a lot of female friends, but from what i understand the bra is really the one piece of clothing that you should invest money in. Like others here have said they last you a long time, and you might find that your comfort level will go up exponentially based on quality.

I believe in spending money on good bras (and shapers, for the outfits that need them) and good shoes. Wearing good undergarments will hide a multitude of flaws, not to mention having good and well fitting ones will make a huge difference to your comfort. Good shoes are pretty much the same thing.

locachica73

I will spend more money on shoes just because I have planter faschiatis (sp?). So I need good support so that the nerve doesn't flare up again. But I have found just a really spongy pair of flip flops works great, but I will spend $20-$30 on a pair of flip flops. I do understand that if your bigger on top you would want to spend the extra money on bras, for better support/feel. But for me it just has never made sense. The bra I have on now was originally $45, it doesn't feel any different than my $10 target bras.

30% will ask to squeeze your tits before giving you an answer.
20% will tell you your tits are fine whether or not they even looked. (1 of them is pretty shitfaced, if that makesa difference.)
And, out of the remaining 3 people, 1 thinks any tits are fine,(Usually the ol' guy who sits in the same seat everyday and hasn't seen a tit since childhood.) and the other 2 will have better bra suggestions and recommend the place they shop at. (And 1 of those two will ask to see the dots!)

lol un-skinny and un-old. I just hate that they think all bigger girls should wear pedal pusher stretch denim or polyester pants with a floral pink top, or perriwinkle blue... Does anyone need to wear perriwinkle blue? Even t-shirts in big girl sizes tend to have a big ass flower on the breast. What is that about? Sorry, it has been a big pet peeve of mine for years, because I have always been un-skinny. :)

But, on a happy note, the jeans I bought were 3 sizes smaller than the last time I shopped for clothes and the smallest jeans I have bought since I was pregnant with my daughter. I am still un-skinny but I feel a lot better.

im no stick figure but im able to shop at forever 21 for their stretchy material and the fact that they have petite sizes....im only 5'2. i find it very hard for me to shop in the woman's section at any department store because im not shaped like a woman.

TheWatcher

I've been assured that I am, indeed, shaped like a woman. However, I wouldn't know it from trying on clothing! When I could fit into a size 8 or 9 (ages ago!), clothes were easy to find. When I was pretty heavy, wearing an 18-20, clothes were easy to find. Now that I am about a size 12-14, most clothing is not proportioned correctly. Either the waist is too big, the shoulders are too tight, the arms are too long, or the seat of the pants fits wrong.

I often end up in the men's section, although the fit is not perfect, it's better.

Since I've gained weight clothes actually fit better even though I look worse. At my equilibrium weight it seems like I have to buy for hip and boob size and everything else suffers. It's almost worth learning how to sew and alter clothes just to get something that fits correctly.

But I got some basic thin striped collared shirts which I like (I'm a boring dresser) and a funky trashy skirt for new years eve.

I went into Forever 21 once. I got the oddest looks and it's so bright in there. I am on a clothes buying boycott right now. Nothing looks appealing.

All their dresses are so SHORT! I'm not tall, pretty average, but basically none of their dresses cover more than the barest minimum. I have no idea what's going on with that.

lol un-skinny and un-old. Does anyone need to wear perriwinkle blue?
But, on a happy note, the jeans I bought were 3 sizes smaller than the last time I shopped for clothes and the smallest jeans I have bought since I was pregnant with my daughter. I am still un-skinny but I feel a lot better.
I believe hospital employees used to wear surgical scrubs in periwinkle blue. Or, atleast they used to. Now those scrubs come in an array of patterns, colors, etc...(Apparently, they weren't very find of the color either.) And, yeah for Loca!!! 3 sizes smaller is nothing to scoff at, that's awesome! Amazing what adding sexercise to your routine does, huh?

It's probably because their barest minimums haven't developed yet. Once you start adding the curves, material seems to disappear faster...

LOL I actually picked up what I thought was a long black shirt at Ross the other day and my girlfriend had to inform me it was a dress... Maybe if I was only 5' tall.

I just read all the clothing/bra posts and I just have to vent for one second... I am short and busty -- so the weight I gained this year courtesy of too much alcohol makes me even harder to fit in clothes correctly. I have this thing where every pair of pants seems to fit in the store and then I go home and then the waist magically stretches as I wear the pants throughout the day.
I accidentally packed a pair of my sister's Gap corduroy 'skinny' pants and she's much taller and they actually fit me the best: they're too big to be 'skinny' (why would I ever wear skinny pants right now?) but they are long and cute and they are actually not super-low rise and they stay up.

And then I need to go get a bra that I fit in. I'm spilling out of every bra I have.

I just have no money for this stuff right now. So I'm walking around with boob pop-outs and pants that fit my legs but I have to hoist up or belt onto my waist.

All of this does wonders for my self-esteem.

Thanks for letting me vent. At least my sister told me to keep the pants!

i've been out for awhile, here are my thoughts...


i cannot tell you how much it FUCKING ENRAGES me when guys make comments that i must be pmsing. i would so much rather be called a heinous bitch than have my opinions, however harsh they may be, invalidated on account of being misconstrued as hormonal bullshit.

not all girls even get bitchy on their period. some girls are just bitches. if you don't like whats coming out of a woman's mouth, address that issue, don't be a snarky ass piece of shit. AHHH!!


this pisses me off too. even if it is my period, your basically telling me that whatever i'm feeling doesn't matter because i'm probably on my period and it's fucking obnoxious. ESPECIALLY if i'm already cranky, telling me that i'm on the rag isn't going to make me go "you know, you're right, let me just get over whatever i was thinking about instantly". i'm with you astrid, so obnoxious.


so yea im not 21 and neither are you loca but i usually shop at forever 21 for clothes since now im freaking broke all the time. use to shop at urbanoutfitters until i overheard my sister say they were over priced...i must say i do agree with her now.


Sometimes I'm delusional and I try to shop there. Some of their stretchy stuff fits. It was eye opening to go in with a friend who is petite (a size 4, at most?) but has curves, and she was not a small or a medium there.

i like forever 21, but i don't buy a lot of clothes there. i buy the types of shirts or skirts i could wear to a club or party as their clothing is poorly constructed & pretty much disposable. i fucking love their accessories though. i buy lots of bracelets and things like that there.


I believe in spending money on good bras (and shapers, for the outfits that need them) and good shoes. Wearing good undergarments will hide a multitude of flaws, not to mention having good and well fitting ones will make a huge difference to your comfort. Good shoes are pretty much the same thing.

i hate cheap shoes. it's so very rare that they are actually comfortable and if it's a cheap "dress" shoe, it sounds horrible on the pavement.


Learning to sew is easy - I just never take the time to alter anything.

i just got a sewing machine for christmas and i am ELATED to finally have a machine to call my own to truly practice with and probably ultimately break, lol.

i want a wii so bad too. i keep getting discouraged from buying one though because i would require rock band & the new mario game, which would put me at about $400 right there. i just can't justify that :(

Ivy, what kind of machine did you get? Most of the "breaking" is easy to fix, I've never managed to actually mechanically break a machine, only screw up tension and such. I am not very happy with the machine I have now, but maybe it just needs a tune up or something.

01-04-2010, 11:39 AM
it's a singer, i think it's a n00b model, lol.

hopefully i won't break it, i just hate that feeling when your thread & fabric instantly become a messy wad.

Before you start sewing something real get some old fabric and practice so you can get the feel of the different stitching, tension, etc. That way you don't fuck up anything good.

01-04-2010, 11:55 AM
Before you start sewing something specific, use some of the same (extra) fabric, and test stitch. That's how you test the tension. Usually when the fabric is something simple like normal cotton and such, it's not really necessary, but you definitely want to do it with anything thick, slippery, stretchy....

I'll require some elaboration. I take it you mean in the distant past? Did you sling any ropes?

About three years ago. Never amounted to much. We still e-mail/text. No ropes slung, unfortunately.

I've never watched The Bachelor. Here's what EW had to say in general:


So what have we learned about our Bachelor from the selection of ''ladies'' producers chose for him? Well, he likes career women (this group of bachelorettes includes a spokesmodel, a swimsuit model, a fit model — is that somehow different than a fitness model? — and a model/makeup artist), he's open-minded enough to date white women with blonde, brunette, and red hair, and, based on the average cup size of the bachelorettes, his mom may not have nursed him long enough as a baby. Or maybe, as a pilot, Jake just prefers women who come equipped with their own flotation devices.

Uh, which Elizabeth did you date? There are two.


I'm going to start a new paragraph for Elizabeth, because I'm pretty sure just from the way she said ''I'm Elizabeth, I'm 29 years old, and I'm a captain in the D.C. National Guard'' that she is about 437 percent smarter than all the other women there combined. Just call it a hunch. And I like her even better for admitting she has no fashion sense, and because, unlike many of the other ''ladies,'' she hasn't decided before actually meeting Jake that he is destined to be her husband. She limits her praise to saying he seems like a ''stand-up guy.'' Plus, ''The greatest loves of all my lives have all been pilots.'' Hmmm... I think the streak might be about to end, sweetheart.


She's soon pushed out of frame by a pair of giant boobs belonging to Elizabeth 2, a nanny who wins the rhymes-with door prize for being the first ''lady'' to utter that hallowed Bachelorette Credo: ''I'm in it to win it.''

I haven't legitimately watched The Bachelor since the first season, but I watched the premiere last night in awe of how ridiculous these women are.
