I fucking love that you’re using a sewing table as a laptop table, or vice versa. The brilliance works both ways.

I just bought this like a month ago. I already stained it tho. I need to get a nice new chair and then it will be fancy.

OOh, I like that little cube-style shelf thing! And that chair!! Is the chair Ikea too? (My chair kinda sucks.)

I have bought SO much shit lately, but 90% of it is for my home office / craftocalypse room, supplies for making stuff for our shop (or for wrapping orders for our shop, or packaging orders for our shop, because I’m never too busy to do a shimmery cloudy misty spraypaint job on a shipping box) (actually I AM, but I Read more

Had mine taken out a few years ago, and was also left with one ovary (my giant fibroid basically ate the other one). It’s amazing how freeing life can be without periods. Although I must admit I was appalled to find out how many women asked me afterwards, “So... do you still have to worry about getting pregnant?” or Read more

That’s so interesting! Hope you’re doing well now since your surgery. I can’t imagine how much trouble an extra uterus might have caused, since the one I have causes me so much grief. ;) Read more

We’re snapping at each other a bit more, but it’s minor and easily apologized for. We’re also very lucky in that we seem to be taking turns having our meltdowns—one person has a horrible downward spiral and the other talks them through; then switch. Read more

I’m with you—things are good with us. Then again, we’ve been through shit before and while this is different, global shit, we’ve already been tested and established decades ago that, for us, marriage is easy—it’s life that’s hard, so our jobs involve getting each other through the stresses of life. One of the things Read more

When I was 12, I started a new school and immediately became besties with a pair of fraternal twins. The girl was the most gorgeous girl in school and already had a huge set of tits. (That is important as a tween.) The boy was handsome, artistic, and very introverted. They had a built in clique of all the punkass kids Read more

About ten years ago, I had this friend Steve. He’d been through some shit. We got very close. We once spent an entire weekend together except for spending the night. Our offices were next door to each other so we went to lunch and happy hour constantly. We were also on G chat during the business day. In addition to Read more

Thanks. It pains me that it still pains me. I never talk about it, because it feels embarrassing for some reason. This is a good forum for catharsis.

I had a friend in high school, she was my FIRST real best friend and we hung out all the damn time. She was kinda mean, sarcastic, and verrrry jaded AND she was also super cool and knew so much about art and music and I cared for her a lot. I ended up changing schools and we hung out less, but weekends were ours we Read more

Oof. That's a long slow death and I'm sorry that's how it went down. These kind of tales are so much more painful than the fire and brimstone breaks. The fading glimmer of hope you carried for so long is palpable in your writing; it makes me wince. Well done, and that sucks.

Um, okay. Mine isn’t a fireworks blowout, but just sort of sad. Friend and I met as freshman roommates, and we remained roommates throughout college. Went to each other’s homes for vacations, etc. Really close friends. After college, friend moved overseas for a job, and I stayed for grad school, but we saw each other Read more
