They don't have the technology available for that. I will talk to them first.

This is probably a really stupid question, LW, but is there any way you can bring your own chair that might be more comfortable for you, something portable? I realize you probably don't want to draw attention, but if that can help you, I say fork them.

No. The last thing I can do is carry a chair around.

I'm wearing jeans for the first time in like six months (it is 60F! aka freezing!) and it's some stone cold bullshiitake.

I keep hiccupping and burping at the same time and it's really annoying.

Luckily I'm on my own but I have a gaming skype date with my boyfriend and I just need to stop.

My brother's ex wife is up to her latest scheme. She wants to make scarves out of her artwork, and she wants me to translate for her an email into Italian asking for samples of scarves made of silk and cashmere. I told her I don't do silk and cashmere, and how about plant fibers? She said no, cashmere and silk for now.

Can anyone help me come up with a nice way to tell her that I don't want to help her create things that I do not agree with? I know it's just an email to translate, but I don't want to be a part of it.

I would say something like:
Dear [ex sister in law]

Thanks for thinking of me to help you out with translating your email! I'm excited for you to be working on a new project and doing something new with your art.

Unfortunately I can't help you out with the translations you've asked for. I know that to you it might seem like a small thing, but being vegan is a very important part of my ethics, and using animal products like silk and cashmere, or even indirectly promoting the use of those, doesn't fit with the way I want to live my life. [You could add some links here if you wanted to].

I wish you the best with your new project, and if you decide to pursue plant-based fibres in future, I'd be more than happy to help out!

Angelina


If she still doesn't listen, you could get more a bit tougher and say, "This is a boundary I've set clearly with you, and I would like for us to continue to be able to have a respectful relationship, which requires us both listening to and honouring each other's boundaries. Please do not ask me again".

Ugh, I feel the same way -- supposed to be helping organize a donation to an event "featuring local farm-sourced meats and cheeses!"

Barf.

Argh. This woman I know is a nutritional therapy practitioner and food blogger who's deal is very paleo-ish, bone-broth-and-beef-tallow "clean" eating. I was just looking through some of her posts and she described the area around a nearby water park resort as a "food desert." NOPE. This area cram-jammed with restaurants and grocery stores (and 20 minutes by car - which you have - to a major city) is not a food desert just because it doesn't cater to your idea of healthy eating. Food deserts are real and awful and not slang for that feeling when you're a wealthy white mommy blogger taking your Instant Pot on vacation with you.

My cousin in Texas is at her high school reunion. They are apparently having a silent auction, and she just posted a picture of one of the items -- which is a flat black Remington rifle with a scope.

How is it legal to "win" a gun in a silent auction?

I decided I want to be Jessica Wakefield for Halloween and no one is properly patting me on the back for what a great and INCREDIBLY DETAILED costume it is going to be. Because I've read what she looks like maybe 309 times?

I just went shopping with my mom. After an hour walking around different stores, she said to me, "Do you know your shirt's on backward?" Well, I do now.

(I said, "Why are you only telling me this now?!" and she said, "Well, I wasn't sure if it was a fashion statement or not.")

I have a bad cold and can't sleep. I've spent the last couple of hours watching cute animal gifs. This may not be the futuristic world anyone predicted but it's pretty amazing.

When your having a nice conversation with a sweet old lady about how bad trump is and then the conversation turns to brexit and she's all well yeah, the Muslims were taking over London. No more politics at work, k?

Does anyone want to sign this petition I made for work? It's about stopping an asylum-themed haunted house because it's super offensive to everyone living with mental illness.
https://www.change.org/p/milwaukie-elks ... m=copylink

Thanks for letting me spam you I just want to get 100 signatures so it looks less sad!

I signed. I didn't expect it to let me, not being American, but it worked I think. I have a friend who was actually in a psychiatric hospital with me years ago, and she now runs "haunted asylum" events. I just don't get it! They tour an old hospital in the area and get spooked out by the thought of mentally ill people from the past...how is that not a horrible thing to do?

I signed it and I asked a few of my local friends to sign it.

I'm playing Dark Souls 3, and I just summoned another person to help me beat this boss. then after it was over my husband reminded me that I had named my character Dildo Baggins. I didn't think I'd ever be playing with anyone, so I just made a stupid asparagus name. I feel like such a crasshole and a moron. hahaha dildo baggins.

I am sure however it was summoned will tell the honorable tale of the foes they vanquished with the fabled dildo baggins.
