    And his marriage has lasted; he's clearly devoted to his wife of many years and to Hannah. Is always refreshing to see someone like him who never does anything to interest the tabloids.

    I belong to two, one near work and one by my house. Oddly enough neither gym has gotten overwhelmingly busy this year. But then again they're not huge chains.

    I have a visceral reaction to eggs. Scrambled, fried, hard boiled (ESPECIALLY hard-boiled), poached, whatever - if I see or smell them, or even read a detailed description of something "eggy", my...

    It happened more or less exactly the way you describe. Car in neutral with parking brake not engaged, and the door knocked me down. I only got a hairline fracture of the tibia and some serious...

    If you ScotchGuard, the can means what it says about making sure the room is well-ventilated. I cheerfully disregarded that warning and got walloped by the ScotchGuard High, followed shortly by the...

    "Nomnomnomnomnom", and its companion, "noms". It's food, a snack, a delicious snack, a treat. . . .

    "Noms" makes me want to stick a red hot poker in my eyes when I see it in print.

    And what is it specifically with Sia's fascination with this child in nude leotards? Can she not broaden her creativity base for music vids?

    Modern interpretive dance is. :D It's fun to watch for a few minutes, just to slag on it, but then it's boring.

    Is it bad that I saw the thread title and at first thought someone was getting a colt gelded?

    Best of luck to you, OP!

    Ha. I got married almost 12 years ago. I haven't had any sex since about 3 weeks post-nuptials. The hiatus is ongoing. Husband, who is a sweet, kind, compassionate and caring man, also has some...

    I had to replace all the buttons on the duvet with velcro (and hells no I didn't sew it on! Liquid Stitch is my friend, and it has held up fine through several washings). My one dog is obsessed...

    Iron sheets? Seriously, some people are uncomfortable sleeping on wrinkled sheets?

    We make our bed primarily to keep the dog hair on the duvet cover rather than in the sheets themselves. There...

    I was an operations manager for a large fitness center (before I got a real big-girl job). I grew to hate the sound of a ringing phone.

    The worst was holidays - we were open on all of them...

    And of course all of us who think this is anything but OK are just "liberal Palin-haters". Palin's an idiot and I would say the same of any person who allowed their child to step on the dog,...

    One of my friends got her 3rd child thanks to a temperature screwup with her birth control. I think it was NuvaRing or something similar; I understand that now it doesn't need refrigeration, but at...

    I don't even care if it's organic. I just want it strong enough to pave a highway with, plus half and half (also do not pay the price for organic there either).
