I use Cerave night cream, rich and heavy-ish but def does the job. There is also a hydrating cream mask that Burt’s Bees has, I had to buy it on Amazon last time. But works wonders for me in the winter.
I did a lil happy dance at the bus stop when I read this. We all knew he was going down, I am thrilled he is locked up. I hope he was in his pajamas.
Of course haha. Mine is pretty lame too, it’s all people looking for someone to shovel their snow or re-tile their bathroom. Give me something juicy already!
Have you looked on NextDoor? Most people post there if there is neighborhood police activity. I didn’t know this but people with those doorbell cameras get automatic alerts if there is reported activity as well.
One time a guy started yelling at me in a crosswalk and I just started yelling ‘IT’S A CROSSWALK’ and pointing to the ground. But I shouldn’t have done that because he pulled over in front of me and then pulled off after a few seconds. Jackass.
That is totally annoying but I have had multiple drivers look like they’re going to stop and then not stop and then slam on their brakes and stop. I am super cautious esp during commuting time, I know everyone is in a rush. Sometimes I just wait so they can go first :)
Angry pedestrians unite! It seems to be more frequent where I am too. Always when I’m *in* a crosswalk. Just a couple days ago a woman was running a stop sign and honked at me bc I stopped after seeing another car might not stop/was texting. It’s mind blowing to me, bc it is a residential area.
Hi Hannibal! My dad is doing alright, trying to help out with things from afar for now, sending him ideas to help him with his day-to-day. Was really worried about him around Christmas, he got the flu and that’s always scary for someone older. He is doing okay now, they loaded him up with antibiotics. It’s so good to…
Take that, banana monster!
I saw a banana bed on insta and I nearly lost my shit — I am sending it to my cat parent friends as a late xmas present. You peel the banana and there’s a furry friend!
Ugh I’m sorry. I am a writer and editor by trade and know AP in and out. In my experience, most people who want to comment on the writing haven’t read a style book in ages. Trust the professionals, ffs.
That’s me 100%. I have given up on the idea of retirement. I think the only way that’s going to happen is if I become mangled in an accident that wasn’t my fault or win the lottery. So that’s hopeful. I’ve actually looked into ways to cover my loans if I die unexpectedly.
I punch myself in the face at least 1 time a year, accidentally but maybe also subconsciously?
I used to not tell people about my PTSD because I didn’t want to seem like I was making excuses, and now I don’t like telling people about it because it has been hyper-used and people seem to shrug it off as ‘don’t we all.’ It sucks how the stigma turns on itself. Especially for DV survivors, honestly I don’t think…
Her apology is a performance imo. It’s not real or genuine or rooted in any kindness. If it was real, she would have reached out to the victim directly after her retraction and apologized publicly sooner. But she instead she wrote it and sold it to THR. That shit happened a year ago...?
I am hoping for the former, but I am trying to clarify through HR. I need my job. Like I will be spectacularly living on the streets fucked if I do not have my job.
I do have a history, we have had personality differences. But he has never threatened my job (?) before. That is what I took that to mean, and we have always resolved our problems face to face. I don’t know what I could’ve said any differently, I feel like there was no winning with my response to begin with. The word…
Busy week back at work. There was a spelling error on a website yesterday that I was trying to resolve, it was beyond my control and, to my knowledge, not my mistake. My manager came up to me and asked me if the word had one or two ‘L’s’ and I said one. And then he asked me if I was sure and I said yes and he could…
Thank you Phoebe, your response really means a lot to me. I was wondering if there were specific therapists for this? He told me he was depressed and I think his docs are giving him the run-around. I really think he needs to talk about it, bc my mom isn't fully grasping it yet.
I feel this way mostly, I think he really wants me there. I was thinking about talking about it with my boss but idk.
