Ok a brighter note, I got a great pregnant catcall yesterday...I was out walking the dog and saw a guy on the street staring at me. I knew I was going to have to walk past him, and it was obvious he was planning on saying something. So, I'm all ginned up walking past this dude, wondering what shit he's going to spout. » 8/21/14 12:10pm Today 12:10pm

That coworker and the manager both sound like douche-lords. I'm so sorry you have to deal with that - I remember working food service, and how quickly the management was to just completely flout any labor laws they found inconvenient - usually with pressure about "being a team player." Fuck that! I'm sure you're an… » 8/21/14 11:01am Today 11:01am

My favorite was the I09 commenters employing an interesting bit of debate jujitsu where complaining about this = "shaming spiderwoman for her sexuality." HOW DARE YOU SHAME HER FOR BEING A PROUD SEXUAL WOMAN? » 8/21/14 9:36am Today 9:36am

My first ever time moving apartments. Was really nervous, BC I'd never moved by myself before. Called my dad and said, "dad, I'm really nervous about moving, and I'm worried I'm missing some major thing or will screw something up. Got any moving advice?" » 8/20/14 11:15pm Yesterday 11:15pm

Congrats on the healthy pregnancy and no Geststional diabetes! My friend had GD, and it suuuucked bc it got her labeled as "high risk." This meant twice the doctors appointments, stress tests, glucose monitoring, etc. Total pain. » 8/20/14 8:23pm Yesterday 8:23pm

BWAHAHAHA like my husband needs me as an excuse to obsess over washing his truck. I think he'd wash it MORE if he wasn't married to me, because I wouldn't be around to make fun of his truck cleanliness obsession. » 8/20/14 2:15pm Yesterday 2:15pm

Oh Jesus, that old sausage. Because there was no racism before the Civil Rights movement, don't ya know. Everyone got along great until those troublemakers started pushing for equal rights, and that's when racism started. *eyeroll* » 8/20/14 6:53am Yesterday 6:53am

Yeah, the last time I had my butthole totally ripped out for daring to defend feminism and my experiences in it, it was from a woman (on GT, even!). So, just because a space is single-gendered doesn't mean it's going to be supportive, feminist, or even particularly civil, sadly. » 8/19/14 11:58am Tuesday 11:58am

That's exactly what worked for me - 3 meals and two snacks. I found eating stuff with a lot of nutritional value kept me satisfied pretty much up till the time for my next meal/snack. The only hard part was late nights, where I'd want to pig out on ice cream just 'cause. » 8/19/14 8:02am Tuesday 8:02am
