I would love the snow more if it didn't negatively impact our feral friends. Last year was so rough on them. I feel shitty and guilty that I can't bring them in, but am so incredibly allergic to them.

Its so hard not to be able to offer a perfect solution. We did TNR, put out warm houses full of straw and feed them, and we make sure they aren't taken into the shelter and euthanized. But I wish they were in loving homes instead of outside.

The local Kroger had Coconut Bliss on sale for $4.99 until 12/15. They still have the old sale price up so every week I grab one, tell them it rang up at the wrong price and get it for free

Each week they tell me it was an old sale and they'll remove the tag but they never do.

My confession is now I am reading that site like they are going to take it down tomorrow and I LOVE IT! So bad. So good.

I have yet to read anything on this site, but now I feel like I should?

I do read the Pickles and Hairspray Facebook and several critical/snarky Tumblrs on a daily-ish basis, however.
That's appropriate to type in the confessional because damn that's sad.

I was momentarily glad that Justice Scalia died...I would've preferred that he retire (though I don't think that would ever happen), but I wasn't at all sad when I heard. Maybe my dark side was in control...

I am 100% thrilled that Justice Scalia is no longer on the Supreme Court and since he had to die for that to happen...oh well.

Hehe I'm guessing you buy even more than me! I did use some twisted logic to justify the purchases, 5 of them were kindle books on offer (Doon, The Elven, In The Woods, The Thief Taker and Gathering of Shadows) which cost£7.24 in total and would have been much more if I'd bought them at different times. I then went to Waterstones and found a copy of the second Wheel of time book for £1, so then thought "I've saved £8.99 on that, so I'm ok to spend £24 on Carlos Ruiz Zafon books" Its weak and twisted but there is some logic in there

I wish there were more vegan doc martens available... I made the mistake of looking at the website and they have so many colourful and nice shoes made of cow. Their vegan shoes are just black, even the cherry red isn't available.

Are you wedded to the brand? Vegetarian Shoes have quite a few Doc-like options. Maybe not as cool as some of the regular Docs (ADVENTURE TIME BOOTS!!!*), but more than just black.

*Some of these are labeled as treated canvas, so I wonder if they're vegan but not part of the vegan-specific collection. Maybe other ones you like are also treated canvas.

I'm not wedded to the brand necessarily but I've seen mixed reviews about the Vegetarian Shoes docs and wouldn't want to spend loads of money on something I'm not sure is worth it. Plus Docs have more variety of colours and styles. I looked on the website and there are a couple of styles that are treated canvas or PU but they are also black. I am thinking of getting a pair of the Vegetarian Shoes airseal chelsea boots when they come out in red, but am still not sure.

I'm kinda over local vegan events. The vendors never make enough stuff and seem to be proud of selling out less than 2 hours into a heavily promoted 5-hour event. Every other thing has nuts in it, and no one seems to be concerned about cross contamination. And the stuff I do buy, most of which I could probably make myself, tends to be mediocre.

I hate Walmart. Haaaaate it. But. It was much easier to stand on my high horse and claim I'd never shop there when I lived in Chicago proper, because there weren't any near me. Now there's a big new fancy one by me, and ..........I've been buying clothes at it. And Gardein products, but mostly clothes. Specifically "blouses," which is something new for me (at least lately), since I just wear t-shirts and hoodies most of the time. When I wear them, people are like, "Oh, you look nice today!" ...but really I'm wearing a $9 blouse from Walmart.

I know why people don't like Walmart and I know why I don't like it but honestly, you can get a $9 shirt made in China or you can get a $40 made in China from a department store. Sure Walmart doesn't have the best employment policies but overall, we can pretend that spending more on clothes makes the difference but often doesn't when you are just paying the middle man more.

I hate my job so much. Two kids here today; neither interested in doing much. I don't want to be a baby sitter.

I set all my minerals up for a fun lab too.

Does me not shopping at Walmart put me on a high horse? I scrimp and save in other ways (though I recognize my own privilege to be able to do so) so I don't have to go there. I haven't set foot in one in 5 years and plan to go the rest of my life. Everything about Walmart fills me with a caustic rage.

No, of course not. I actually lectured my dad and stepmother about how terrible Walmart is, and even co-hosted a screening of a documentary about the evils of Walmart ("The High Cost of Low Prices"!). I was -definitely- on a high horse.

I have to drive by a fairly well stocked Walmart on my way to the grocery stores where I live as it is just down the road from my house. I am also stopping regularly in that plaza for the liquor store, pet supply store, and bulk barn - so I end up in Walmart more often than I would like. Maybe once a month.

My biggest problem is when I have to go get groceries and my anxiety is on the high side. The grocery stores get so busy and are less open - the Walmart is so big and spaced out that even on weekends I don't mind parking and shopping there.

That is one reason I hate Walmart beyond everything else is it is always so crowded and cramped.
