  • @chgilmore Something about Mondays, I'm just like, ok - TODAY'S the day!  Every other day is like 🤷 but Mondays tho...
    <img src="https://us.v-cdn.net/5020794/uploads/editor/kt/kwa0igbpk0ib.gif" alt="">
    So far I've submitted (slash <i>re-submitted</i> 🤦) a couple pretty important things, (that are not really DONE until I hear back / confirm that they are actually received and settled on the other party's side), and then started on another task that's maybe a little more fun / enjoyable for DH.

    Yes, I'm rewarding myself for completing some work, with... More work. 🙄

  • Eep! @stormageddon-darklordofall One thing I checked and had to re-re-upload, but someone finally told me WHY!  So I will check again in a bit and see if they can take it now. 🤦 Working on the other thing, but I can open up my email to get the ball rolling on something else here as well.  Thanks for the nudge!  I have my priorities set for tomorrow so we should be in good shape!

    None of this includes cleaning the house, either btw.  I ...don't even know when that's going to happen. 🙄

    @anniemarie887 How about you, did you knock out your 100 emails????

  • There is a global issue with google / microsoft just FYI.  @anniemarie887 not sure if you will be affected.  I can't use sms messages, either.  It's a really big pain.

    ...After spending the last few hours trying to clean up and troubleshoot my phone... Finally get a person from my device support who filled me in.
  • @BusinessWife ughhhhhh so far outlook is scooting along just fine... if this global issue is just accidentally deleting my inbox i'm kinda ok with that at this point. lol

  • Saw this article tonight. Sounds funny, but it’s more like real-life Handmaid’s Tale issue. 
    chgilmore
  • @keikilove I get that the title is probably more for eye-grabbing attention so people will read it... but, it's a bit frustrating to see all the various types of research she's done, and that 'size' is really what is being focused on / needed to focus on so people would even read something like this.  When snuck into the middle of the article is what I think is a crucial statement:  "In some parts of the world, the average twenty-something today is less fertile than her grandmother was at 35,"  

    Also, anyone else feel the desire to share this with the Peggy who was obsessed with 'size' and was sleeping around with various men to try and get knocked up by 'her ideal partner' which was seemingly 90% (or more) based upon his size only????

  • @stormageddon-darklordofall ooohhh now I want to read that thread 😂😂 
  • @pajamstagrams I think maybe it was on 1st Tri board?  Anywho, I tried to search for it, but I'm thinking it's one that the BGs took down/removed.  That lady was bonkers!  And it was several years ago I believe.  #ItsBeen84Years  I think she not only asked about *if* she could be PG, but talked about how she wanted to be PG or something cause she slept with this guy who had a large member, but wasn't with him anymore so it was her like only shot of having his baby.  And how it could take a while for her to find another 'satisfactory' guy to DTD with, as she wanted to be a single mom but only wanted large membered guys to give her a baby, because if she had a son, she wanted to ensure he was 'well endowed' for his future partner's pleasure, and because supposedly studies showed that guys who are super-sized do better in life and business and everything.  Small sized guys fail and everything and no one wants to DTD with them.  (We were all :anguished::astonished::hushed::flushed: )

  • @stormageddon-darklordofall don't forget she even provided a chart comparing satisfaction based on both girth and length!

    Wasn't that also the thread (or same person, different thread?) where she said she'd rather have a dead baby than a child with Down Syndrome? I know I didn't get to read that because the thread had probably 1k comments when they shut it down. I remember being 300+ comments behind and never got to read them.

  • @inthewoods23  Oh man, I can't remember.  I know she started with some sort of "Could I be PG, cause I DTD with a man of large size and want his baby" and then KEPT COMING BACK to show her 'evidence' and 'scientific studies' about large size, and her future baby's endowment, etc. etc.  Every time she responded it got crazier and crazier!  I think she did maybe mention something about how she'd rather lose a baby/have no baby (I can't remember if she specifically mentioned Down Syndrome, or if that was another crazy chick at like the same time), than have a boy baby that didn't have a large member.  Because she didn't 'want my baby to go through life with an impediment like that.'  She MAY have been the one to compare small size to a genetic complication like Down Syndrome and how horrible it would be....  (Whereas I think the other same-time crazy chick was all against having a child that had any type of imperfection, and not so focused on member size).  And I think that's when we went from "Woah, you looney crazy" to "Back up, biotch!  WTAF is wrong with you, you horrid person?"

  • @stormageddon-darklordofall omg the scientific studies haha. She'd throw hers around and claim everyone else's studies were poorly done or invalid. That had to have been late 2018/early 2019 when all that happened.

    For anyone who wants to know, this was 100% the chart I was talking about that this crazy Peggy had posted.

    Also, I legit remember us saying it was all subjective and 'ideal is whatever works best for you' and she kept coming back with more 'scientific studies/evidence'  SMH.  
    In fact, TMI, I remember saying that I preferred men on the smaller size, cause they often feel inadequate and will work on pleasing a woman in other ways (such as glorious foreplay), rather than just being like "BLAM. Here it is!!!  Suck it and enjoy it by me doing NOTHING for you but just wanting to stick it up there!!!!"

  • @BusinessWife Exactly!  And when does this come up?  I mean, is this like "2nd date convo."  Cause I mean, if it's too small/large/not enough girth, you'd wanna know early on and not waste months of your time dating the guy before you find out, right?  Or do you wait until you're married, and on your wedding night be all like "WAIT a minute!  I need to measure this thing first!!!!  I gotta take some stats, so I can evaluate how this first time went and write a report about my satisfaction levels online based upon your measurements!" (cause I'm sure THAT wouldn't add ANY type of performance pressure).  Or maybe you roofie the guy at some point, so you can secretly take the measurements for statistical purposes later on?  (NOT sketchy at all)

  • I have never wanted to the US to be on the metric system until I started supporting a UK team. Why is everything in millimeters? And now they tell me "oh by the way our clocks go forward this weekend". Can we not align our daylight savings globally? Do I now support getting rid of DST?? My brain hurts. That is all. 
    stormageddon-darklordofallchgilmore
  • @pajamstagrams even in the US we're not consistent. I know of at least 2 states that do not do daylight savings but I think there are more. Every so often we have to remind my brother in AZ that we're 2 hours ahead of him now, not 1.
