  • I cannot stand summer. Anything over 75 degrees is too hot, IMO. We are in the middle of a heat advisory and I'm a chef, so summer can suck it.

    I think Snookie looked better with a little chub. 

    This was going to be mine.  It also makes me sad that so many people think she looks good/better. It's such an unrealistic image of beauty.

    I think 75 is too hot. I could deal with an extended spring to fall take out summer. Leave my winter though.

    And I think 75 feels good. Sad

    I will admit that I do prefer it to be in the 60's.

    This!! Love spring and fall but hate summer! I would be good with spring and fall weather year round, but winter isn't too bad because you at least you can layer and unlayer clothes.

    It is indeed Thursday. 

     

    Board related: I don't think every comment that disagrees with the OP has an implied level of bitchiness, and I think it's kind of juvenile to see it that way. Sometimes, yes, people are actually rude; but just saying "um, no" or "clearly you haven't thought about X in relation to Y" is not. 

     

    Non board related:  

    I think Snookie looked better with a little chub. 

    The more I watch the bachelorette, the less realistic it gets. All these guys on their hometown dates are saying "I love you" or "When I see Des, I see this totally perfect woman" or "she totally understands me and supports me." Um, if you're thinking  that, then 1) love=lust, not love; 2) you will be sorely disappointed when she turns out to be, in fact, NOT perfect; and 3) there is no way that Des can know absolutely  everything you are about in, what, a few weeks? Also, all these absolutely effing beautiful men in their 30's saying "I pretty much gave up on love, and then I met Des." Well that sucks for you, because you only have a 25% chance of being with her at this point...andplusalso? You're clearly handsome, and articulate enough to continue to be on this show. Would it REALLY be THAT hard to find a suitable partner? You just did national TV....why not try something a little less drastic. You know, like match.com. Seesh. 

     

    ETA: this is my first time watching the bachelor or bachelorette.  

    I agree with all of this, but I did think Snookie looked good.

    I agree with this too. 

    My UO is that I think Jersey Shore was the worst show out there.  Drunk buffoons getting paid to be drunk buffoons?  It's bananas.  There's a lot of bad tv out there, especially in the reality realm, but JS takes the cake for me.

    I thought of you this morning yogi--I have an interview at Lakeland this morning, but their Milwaukee branch.  If I would get/take this job I'd have to do my training in Sheboygan!

    I'm so confused by this. She worked out really hard and lost weight that was unhealthy for her. How is that unrealistic? She looks fit and at an ideal weight for her height.

    I do it all the time. If it is good enough to wash my dishes in, the things I put my food on, then it's clean enough to wash my kid's food out of her hair.

    Ha! I usually keep it very clean but it's the thought of where food has been that grosses me out. I just couldn't do it!

    ETA: But the sink in the house we just moved to is disgusting. No matter how many times I disinfect it, it's still gross. We're living with it until August when we can get my dream white apron front sink. Sigh.

    Yes.  I hates it.  I'll take winter over this madness any day.  At least in winter when it's an effing blizzard you don't feel like you should try to make yourself leave your house.  I'm like "Oh, it's sunny!  Let's go for a wa---oh feckityfeck, it's disgusting out, never mind."

    yeah, she worked really hard for that and stopped drinking and partying all the time. She's only 4'10" so weighing 100 pounds at her age isn't that horrible. I have a more muscular build so I'm heavier than that but I weighed nearly that all through high school and it certainly wasn't unhealthy.

    I don't think she looks too thin. I think the unhealthy comes from the orange glowing skin.

     confession: I didn't know who Snookie was until she got pregnant at the same time as us last year.

    Exactly! I'm 4'11" and 105 has always been my goal weight because that puts me in the healthy BMI range. I haven't been that since college but if I could get there again I would be excited!

    the show is super fake! I still watch it though but I also read Reality Steve. He spoils the show and makes fun of it each week. He also gives out info on how fake it is. Contestants are threatened with not getting dates or getting roses so they will say things or start drama. They are also fed a lot of alcohol during the day.

    I agree. She doesn't look like she's starving, she looks toned. I used to be much skinnier than I am now. I was on the lower end of the healthy range for my weight, but my god do I miss it. I don't think it's unrealistic, just really fcking hard to get there.

    Gross.  We had the opposite issue--our boiler was out and it was under 50 degrees in the house at night the week before I had E.  DH kept calling the HVAC guy and he wasn't responding until DH's coworker was like, "Idiot, pull the pregnant wife card--tell him your wife is due in five days." He was at our house half an hour later.

    Interestingly enough, "Do you have heat at home?" was a question I had to answer before leaving the hospital with E.  "Well, now we do.  Funny story..."

    i am really enjoying my baby free time at home, its only a couple hours a day until i go back to work but i really am enjoying it.

    I also think that bathing a baby in the kitchen sink is gross. not that my baby's bare behind is in the sink but because i pour raw meat juice down the drain daily while prepping dinner and even though i disinfect my sink daily with cleaner i just feel like there are still leftover germs in the sink. just my own personal neurosis

  • I clean my sink every day? It's probably cleaner than my bath tub.

    I really don't like the center-hall colonial style of home. That being said, we're going to look at one today, to assure my ILs we've at least 'looked' at what is available before taking on a building project.

  • I think many parents are too concerned when their babies fall. For example, at Gymboree yesterday, a new walker fell over on a soft mat and the mom gasped so loud and rushed to pick up her lo. Her LO started crying only after mom panicking. It's a pretty common scene that we see. When Anthony falls I watch to see how he reacts. If he starts crying I calmly console him, but most of the time he looks at me to see what his reaction should be, so I say kaboom and giggle then he laughs and continues with playing.
