    It's perfectly normal to feel like you've been punched, because you have. First it's mentally, then it's physically. Cancerland is not for wimps. Unless you grew up dealing with this kind of...

    I read this thread last night and figured I'd take some time before replying, OP.

    I would be careful here, OP. Most people don't think a person chose to reject their invite in favor of doing something else as having their best interests at heart. I'm wondering if your friends will...

    Thank you for the recommendation! I'm listening to it right now & loving it. I'm about a third of the way through, really enjoying all the Russian/Slavic/Eastern European fairy tale elements. Keeps...

    Not so much a review as a head's up. ;)

    Pay attention to the interior components. Plastic will fatigue faster than metal.

    Water supply. I liked machines that heated their water. Much more cost...

    I'd recommend:

    The Bell at Sealy Head by Patricia A. McKillip

    While it's technically fantasy, it reads like a Jane Austen regency. Beautiful writing & a very engaging story.

    I should add the caveat that DH hates listening to audiobooks. For him it's irritating noise, regardless of how good the narrator is. So on long car rides together, we'd listen to music, talk, or...

    I like them. They make a dull job a breeze to do. Folding laundry. Picking stalls. Driving. I got stuck in a traffic jam at the Tappanzee Bridge for over an hour and the book I was listening to made...

    Well. It's obvious from the article there was a lot of CGI in Fury Road. And reading it, I recollected all the fantastic elements of the film that...I just accepted as normal for Mad Max's world. But...

    I'm sad to say I forgot Road Warrior is one of my top favorite films. But Fury Road reminded me of this!

    And I think FR's doubly impressive because there's hardly any CGI in the film. I'm always...

    I'm a big TH fan too. Bronson, while very well done, is a very disturbing film to watch. So be prepared! And I agree, Warrior is a powerhouse of a film. I've felt all TH's films are well worth the...

    Just saw Fury Road. Initially I was a little turned off by the violence, then started remembering the original two movies and shut down the 'seeing a movie' part of my brain and opened the flood...

    I'd say your friend is more of a 'glass half empty' kind of person. ;)

    :lol: Exactly!

    My pet peeve is slow left lane drivers that 'guard' their section of highway, accelerating when you try to pass them, or accelerating to the next clump of right lane cars and...

    I think the feedback you've received on this thread so far, to treat your friend like she's your friend and NOT treat her like your friend with cancer is good advice. When I was going through my...

    I agree with the sentiment that a partner should give credit where credit is due. Like if DH & I go to a pot luck dinner and people keep complimenting me on what DH made. Usually I try to make a joke...

    Exactly! He's working the situation to his advantage. He probably didn't think the whole car must be his assumption bothered you, because it's happened before.

    No, because it's annoying dealing with mysoginists, sexists, narrow minded boobs, etc. But keep in mind no matter what you say, you're never going to change their mindset.
