I got married at age 28 (I’m 32 now), and changed my name. I felt no attachment to my maiden name; some speak of it as part of their identity, and I did not/do not feel that way. My husband’s parents divorced when he was young, and though each of them remarried and had more children, only he and his father share a Read more

When this movie was first available on pay-per-view after its release, my parents rented it one Sunday to watch with me (I was 19? 20?), thinking it would be a heart-warming Christmas tale starring actors and actresses whom they really enjoy. At the time, they were going through a very rough patch in their marriage Read more

In the extended universe Star Wars novels, which are no longer considered canon, Luke becomes a mighty leader and father. My husband and I call him “Cool Dad Luke” and he is awesome, therefore I 100% have a crush on bearded, adult Mark Hamill.
OTOH, I met Mark Hamill once at a corporate function he was paid to attend Read more

My dad has an eating disorder. When I was a kid, he would only eat cabbage and tomatoes, or plain tofu. He started therapy (for other issues) when I was in college, and maybe he’s addressed the eating disorder head-on, but he still has disordered eating. It manifests itself differently now, he sort “hides” it behind a Read more

For TWO seconds, I thought the gif was from the episode and I was like “dang, Taraji P Henson in this episode looks a lot like that New York chick from Flavor of Love, why did they do that...”

I mean, there is no way one can feasibly be surprised about christmas lights. Like, it’s goddamn December, that’s when you put them up! The fact that she is SO surprised that it brought her to tears...well, it confuses me.

I laughed so much at this that my husband came from another room to check on me. Thank you.

Several years ago, I met a woman at work and we became fast friends. So much in common! Same sense of humor! We both worked a TON, so we primarily saw each other at work and it was awesome. Made long days terrific. Eventually, though, we brought the husbands out for a double date, and oh my god, we each DID NOT LIKE Read more

I own that shit on cassette. CASSETTE. I mean, also, digitally. I wish Rickman narrated more things!

I agree with you, but I guess I might want to still differentiate between being turned on by someone, or rather the IDEA of a person, than what you’ve stated as a desire to be with them, like actually have sex with them. Because I think it’s important to acknowledge that being married does not mean that one stops Read more

RE: special sparkle... That’s fair, I agree with you there. For a second, I couldn’t think of a time when I was in that situation, but then after another two seconds I was like, “Oh yeah THAT time” and in that situation I did indeed run the other way. Like, do NOT nurse that crush. Stick with Vincent D, girl.

When I was 18 (actually, it started when I was 17), I was involved with a man who was 30. (I am 31 now, for reference.) He was married, and I knew it, but I did not know her. We met through work, and to be honest he was my first date, and then my first kiss, and then my first sexual partner. I had so many feelings all Read more

Can we more clearly define inappropriate feelings? Specifically thoughts of how and when to cheat on your partner with this person? Because otherwise the number of times I have expressed to my husband that I have inappropriate feelings for Vincent D’Onofrio and the guy at work who reminds me so much of Phillip Seymour Read more

Ugh, no, she was hella rude. She knows it, too, she just didn’t like getting busted and booted outside. There are plenty of things that don’t involve second hand smoke for which, when you are in someone else’s house, you should ask permission. Guns! for instance. I live in IL, and a few weeks ago my uncle came to Read more
