I mean really! I just don't get why she continually asks me questions if she wants to continue drinking milk and whatever. I even say to her, "Are you SURE you want me to tell you?" and she says, "Yes! I want to know how they're treated!" and I tell her about industrialized farming and then she pouts and is like, "That's SO AWFUL! OMG! I'm going to cry!"

Then the next morning her breakfast is a bacon and egg sandwich with chocolate milk.

Okay so there is a vegan food place in my city that has amazing food. Way better than the other options. The thing is, they have the worst customer service. It's awful.

I want to support vegan businesses but I don't want to support their way of operating. I think I'm never eating there again but I feel bad about it. I don't know...

Have you told them that? That they have great food but that their bad customer service trumps that? That you want to support vegan businesses but that their bad customer service trumps that too? Couldn't hurt, could possibly motivate them to make some changes.

I've just noticed that 'LISA' looks a bit like 'USA' when moving up a screen as part of the end credits.

But there wasn't an actor called USA.




Carry on.

So.... there is a chance that hubby will be changing jobs in a month. Happy thoughts and fingers crossed. He needs to for his sanity. I just want it all to go well. It would mean a pay cut, that we can cover. But it would mean I have my husband back.

Yeah, if there's a place I want to like, but there are some issues that are keeping me from going back, I'll send a polite email to the management explaining my experience and tell them I hope they can get their shiitake together. It can't hurt and if I were a business owner I would genuinely want to know if there was something driving my customers away.

Thanks for the input. I'll take your advice. I don't know why I didn't think of that earlier.

While vacuuming I found a mummified baby bird under our BED. I suppose we have our cat to thank for that, but I have no idea how she did it. She goes outside only a few minutes a day and only on the gallery of our floor of the apartment building, which does not have birds' nests that I'm aware of. Being a cat mom is never boring. :-(

I just sent out invitations for my birthday party. My birthday isn't for another 2 months, but I don't know what I want to do (or where), so I threw it out to the guests to see if anyone had any ideas. I always get really anxious when I invite other people to do stuff, especially celebrate my birthday. I have a bad success record where birthday parties are concerned. I'm terrified that I'll book a function room and pay £150 for a giant cake and only 4 people will turn up.

everyone keeps talking about this mercury in retrograde thing being to blame for all varieties of disasters these days.
i thought it was a bunch of poppycock until today, when not only did i drop and smash a PLASTIC container full of pickled cabbage (this is why i can't use glass, but plastic? and the shards cut me finger), but i also did the first two steps of brewing my beer without realizing i hadn't run the grain through the mill. luckily i was able to remedy that with the omega juicer (but probably have a stuck sparge in my future). And i got completely shot full of holes when i gave blood in friday. they never have trouble with my veins. i should have noticed when she said "this is going to hurt" instead of "a little pinch"- i thought to myself "that's different" and then my troubles began....
What next?

I hope that's not the beginning of the end of your blood-giving days, torque. I had an experience like that after years of successfully giving blood. The next time it happened again and the guy basically said your veins are like rivers and they can "change course" over time. I've tried once since and it was a total disaster, ending with my whole forearm being purple for several days, and without a pint of donatable blood to show for it. Bums me out, but I don't think I will try again.

you've got to be kidding!! i never even considered it. but things are changing, like my blood pressure has been rising, so i suppose it's not unsurprising. We'll see in another 5 or 6 months how adventurous i want to be.

I'm very excited about finding that the "do not disturb" setting on my phone can be scheduled for certain times. I keep getting woken up by text messages. Is it not rude as fork to text people in the middle of the night if you don't know for sure they're awake?

I have a policy of never texting people between the hours of 9pm and 9am, unless I know for sure they will be awake. If it's urgent, then I wouldn't be sending a text, and if it isn't urgent then it can wait until the next day.

I am craving black licorice so bad right now. I'm looking at it on amazon and on a website called licoriceinternational.com.

Send help.

And black licorice.

this is a good policy! actually any kind of communication that isn't an emergency should be limited to email between these hours. as someone who has had their fair share of actual emergency phone calls that ended up being really bad stuff, i freak the eff out when i hear my phone at off times. i got a spam phone call last night at 11:25, which woke me up and i got this horrible panic feeling in my stomach, and then i just got really pissed.

I'm craving Euro stuff - salted Dutch stuff, or German licorice drops. We got some at an international market last week, and now I can't get it out of my mind.

Target has the Australian style which is basically like the Dutch stuff. My mom would also go in there to get it for my dad. He loved strong licorice.

Do you like Sambucca?

Like LW says, the one Target has is the Australian kind, this is the brand I think

They may have another brand as well.

I've had that stuff, and I like it, but I'm craving the salty stuff!

Now here's my real first world problem: I texted D saying I was craving licorice, and he is a sweet, perfect person, so he brought some home... but it's red! I ate it anyway.
