Aug 22nd 2010 7:37AM Well, for me and my husband, we've done it... but its usually be accident. I have extrememly abnormal visits from Auntie, and when she does visit, I often flood so bad that I'm changing the cotton cork and liner about every hour. So... often, I'll when I think its over, its stopped, and we'll get it on, then its like capow! And shes looking like Jack Nicholson in the Shinning.. "Heres Johnny!"
Aug 3rd 2010 12:53AM Selfishness. The blog was to rant about her MIL. It wasn't to tell the other side of the story. That's the whole point of the article. How she felt... her "personal" experience. Not her MIL's. If it was suppose to tell both sides she would have added that information.
I for one have to agree that at least she handled it in a non-violent way. Goodness, with post partum depression I'm surprised she didn't kill the woman or snatch her bald. My mother has, at times, said things that were not cool to mu husband, and being she is my mom, I stand up for my man and I tell her that its messed up to say something like that to someone. Not just my husband. My FIL has said some things that hurt my feelings, as well, and my husband handled it. He no longer says those things, but when he does say something that upsets me, I've learned to fire back at him. He may not like it, but I can zing with the best of them if I want to. In-laws can be very rude sometimes. It it has to be handled asap, because if left unchecked.... it will just continue on and eventually you'll end up having gnarly dreams about beating them over the head with a frying pan. LOL
Jul 19th 2010 10:17PM Whoa! Why do you feel the need to attack another person's fashion or look? Granted, I'll be the first person to tell you that baggy pants on guys, that show off their boxers is just as attractive as an over weight plumber wearing those same baggy pants with no belt. Yeah.. but, in any case, so what if women show that they are pregnant. You may not know this, but infertility is a pretty huge thing now days and the fact that you got pregnant is something to a lot of women love to show the world. I, for one, can't have children, but when I was trying very hard to, I was planning on getting one of those very cute baby on board type of t-shirts. I think the pregnant woman's belly is beautiful, and nothing to hide. And not every child wearing just a diaper happens to have a wet diaper on. Sometimes the baby just spilled his juice cup all down the front of himself in the car seat and you just don't happen to have the extra outfit with you this time, so she strips him cleans the baby up and puts a dry diaper on him. ((My sister has three children and I've seen this happen a lot)). In wish case the mother of the baby will walk into a store and buy a baby shirt or something to put on him until she gets him home again. Also, as an over weight woman, I find myself insulted by your remark about a woman wearing a t-shirt with an arrow pointing at her belly, with the word baby on it and that the only reason that it would be needed is because "considering the problem of obesity now facing our country, maybe we do need signs telling everyone if the weight is due to baby or fat." As you say it anyway. That's completely uncalled for and rude. You talk of being civilized but your words show you to be far from it. Women have been showing off their baby bumps for years. It is nothing to be ashamed of. It is something to rejoice in. A miracle. Some women actually wear shirts designed to leave the baby bump bare for all to see.
Jul 17th 2010 6:14AM I AM A CHRISTIAN! I'll state that fact loud and clear. And I sin.. daily. I try not to, but I do.
I gotta say, though, these people give real Christians a bad name. They make us all look bad. Makes me angry. One dude, brain washed a couple people, then those people mislead hundreds to believe the Holy Bible says that God hates people. He doesn't hate anyone. God is wrathful, I'll give you that much. And he can get angry. But he doesn't hate people. And the irony of this group of nutso people don't realize that while they protest the American Soldiers and America herself, its America and her men at arms that gave them the right to publicly protest anything. If they spoke the way they do in some other countries in the world, they've been shot in the street or arrested. Bunch of ignorant people. Makes me so frustrated. Grants, I don't like our government issues and the way it can push our rights away when it deems it is okay to do so, it is still our country. Its still our Nation under God. And those who do not appreciate it and say that God hates America and her Soldiers, don't deserve to be protected under it's flag. They should be deported to what ever country would have them. Oh wait... I know, send them to Iraq and see how happy they'd be. Okay, so, that's not very Christian of me. I still they should be deported to who ever would take them. And the children can either stay and undergo psychiatric evaluation or they can go with their parents.
Jul 16th 2010 2:46PM Those people make Christians look bad. I know, this is sort of hypocritical, but as Christian, we're not suppose to judge other people. "Judge not, lest ye be judged" "Let he who has not sinned, cast the first stone." Sound familiar? They need to leave people alone. You don't gather people to the word with sour words and accusations. Its done with honey and the light of God.
Jul 15th 2010 5:02PM My name... isn't so confusing. Not really. My name is Jenny. But, growing up, I've been called Jennifer by my teachers. In almost every school, and I changed schools 23 times growing up, my teachers have called me Jennifer. At one point I was made fun of for correction one of them. My maiden name wasn't much help either. Crask.... it ended up being said as crash or cask. LOL My teachers wouldn't believe me and would arfue with me about my name. In high school I even remember getting so upset about it that I just completely ignored a teacher until she said my name right. I know it makes me look like a brat, but if your name is Jacob and a teacher refuses to call you that and instead keeps calling you John, then you'd get ticked off too. LOL At one school, I even went just by my middle name, but it back fired because my siblings went to school there too.. my step-sisters and brother. Someone asked, "Have you seen Lynn?" and they'd replay, "Who is Lynn?" It probably would have helped if I told my siblings what I was up to. Ha ha. Anyway, when I confessed to my new friends, they laughed but they went along with it and continued to call me by my middle name. I should have kept that up when I moved. Oh well. I guess it worked out for the best because I really didn't want that Carnegie Hall bill from chorus in my senior year in high school to say "Lynn Crask" .
Jul 15th 2010 10:16AM I'm 28 years old and I love to watch this show. The reruns get a bit annoying at times, but I love it when I get to see the new stuff. It really hasn't been on that long which makes me wonder why they'll be closing it down so soon. And, yes, her character is some what selfish and self centered but that's what makes it seem so much better when she does do something responsibly or nice. It highlights that she really is just a teenager and they have shown some significant growth in her character. Always love to see the progression. Besides that, I am looking forward to seeing what she does with the rest of her career. I want to see her succeed and not become another girl who has to show more skin to show she is a woman. Perhaps that is why I like her so much. She never really came out as being a cute little girl. She always dresses with style and never shows too much skin, but manages to look classy and like an attractive young woman.
Jul 13th 2010 6:28AM Very cool! Jude, you can belt one out pretty good. *applause*
Jul 10th 2010 11:19PM These are not ways to quit a job. They are stories of people who have never been taught the right way to treat others. The boy with the teacher... you walk away and just tell her to do it herself then. Just leave. Don't look like a jack ass trying to prove a point, and only prove how immature you are. And the woman who told the wife about her boss's cheating at a party then flaunted their private marital issues to everyone else, that was just evil. Not one of the stories listed above.. well maybe the reading the book thing wasn't so bad, but still he was pulling pranks on his boss. You deserve to lose your job for pulling the pranks. There is a place for stuff like that, and its not at work unless the people involved are close friends and even then you've got to be careful. You all deserved to be fired. I did like the power point idea, though. Just wish it didn't back fire on her. Sounds like a "9 to 5" movie type story.
Jul 10th 2010 11:04PM I agree completely, Sandy. I can't believe that she actually did that to her employer's wife. Its cruel and just immature. I have quit a job and burned my bridges, but I did it with dignity and decorum. When I clocked out the night prior, I left a note for my boss saying that I had had enough of the stress and it was really getting to me and that I was not going to be in for my shift tomorrow. I had to go in to get my last pay check, and she made me wait for her a good 15 minutes before coming out and getting in my face. I was about 23 years old or so, and she was at least 10 years my senior. She really got right in my face and chewed me out. I told her I came to get my last pay check, would she get out of my face please. She ranted some more, and I continued with a very calm, I don't have to listen to you (insert her name) and she retorted with a "Oh yes you do little girl, if you want your pay check." I told her she couldn't with hold it from me and I just wanted my check and I would leave. She ranted some more, got the check, said "You want it? Here!" And threw it on the floor in front of me. I picked it up and walked out. I've never gone back into that place. No matter what I need, I never go back in there. What made it weird is she was still friends with my husband and not 5 years later, she helped him get a new job at another location but the same corporation, and she asked how I was doing and acted as if that whole mess never happened. LOL I have to say, I do quietly hope that she looks back at that and sees her own behavior. It was on camera after all.
