Someone very close to me married a "checklist" and is in a miserable, loveless marriage. I married a total weirdo that everyone told me wasn't an appropriate match (BC of our different socioeconomic backgrounds) and we're closer than ever after more than ten years together. » 9/29/14 1:48pm Monday 1:48pm

I admire your ability to keep vegan! I did a little over a year as a vegan, but stopped after a near-solid month of psychosexual dreams about mozzarella cheese (yup, that actually happened). I've since downgraded to pescetarian, but try to eat as low on the food chain as possible (shrimp and mussels over tuna, for… » 9/29/14 1:02pm Monday 1:02pm

Yeah, if thry aren't paying for the phone, thry don't get round the clock help. My work expects me to be available outside of standard 9-5 hours, so they provide a blackberry for me to use. I'd be furious if thry expected to use my personal line for work stuff outside of emergencies. » 9/29/14 3:17am Monday 3:17am

Paid $15 for a ticket to see him do standup live at the Apollo a few months ago. Best $15 I've spent in a while. No joke - the man does a solid improv standup, no phoning it in.

Seriously - I had a c-section two weeks ago, and this story makes me want to kiss my OB on the lips in my followup appointment. I was terrified of something like this happening, and my OB made the event as minimally traumatic as a c-section can possibly be. Jesus what a horror story!! » 9/26/14 5:14pm Friday 5:14pm

We definitely called mine "Cletus the Fetus" until we knew the gender. And even then, it definitely didn't seem the same as a full-fledged infant until the very end - where it felt like there was a baby elephant in there squirming around. » 9/25/14 1:27pm Thursday 1:27pm

My insurance does that. It's some loophole where as long as they make free birth control available (through their pain in the ass mail order pharmacy) thry don't have to offer it free through brick and mortar pharmacies. It sucks, because timing the mail order to get pills without a gap is a paaaaiiiin. And I even,… » 9/24/14 11:42am 9/24/14 11:42am
