Confession of a woman who didn't have boobs until her late twenties: accidentally been losing weight. So I actually went and bought a small cheesecake on my way home last night. I'd rather have a little extra and boobs than be thin without boobs. It's like a tasty boob job.
flanker_ji
I LOVE the taste of processed cheese and I can't quit it, despite the knowledge of all it's not doing for my health.

I told everyone IRL that I broke my hand yesterday morning because I slipped on the side of the tub. I actually got really angry over something totally inane and punched the shower wall - and I won't even tell you what the inane thing was because I'm embarrassed about that too. I'm too embarrassed to tell people i broke my hand by punching a wall because everyone would be shocked that I did such a thing (I secretly have a very bad temper that only rears it's ugly head every few months - years). Also, I can;t believe I broke my hand by punching the wall...better work on my form.

*~*~*soothing hand vibes for ketto*~*~*

confession: i've been on the school roller coaster for the past 7 years that it is weird to have a big hurdle like my dissertation done. i was restless yesterday, feeling like i should be doing something. made me think of the scene from the simpsons where lisa freaks out without school and asks marge to grade her. i think i need to retrain myself that doing nothing is ok.
humanist77
deep, cleansing breaths, star : ) and then take a drive on the interstate and scream at the top of your lungs with all the windows open. Either one is cathartic.

sometimes I worry that I'm still the needy, insecure, uncertain girl I was 10 years ago. What have I really grown into?
raisingirl
Aww, Star. This is a huge milestone. I have a book called The Art of Doing Nothing. Wish I could lend it to you (not that you need a book to tell you how to do nothing and enjoy it).

Ketto, that is pretty freaking awesome, actually. I'm too chickenshit to punch a wall.

I confess I haven't done my taxes yet and I really have no excuse, as I'm expecting refunds for state & federal. DUH.
treehugger
Actually, Ketto, I think it's awesome too. I've never broke my hand by punching something...I've broken walls...but not my hand. You're an official badass in my book now.

Star, congrats on having the dissertation done!!! Yay You!!
raisingirl
I'm feeling all reflective and shit with tomorrow being a new month. I wonder if I need an internet break -- not from email and work stuff, but from EVERYTHING ELSE... just so I can focus on my life and shit and not fritter my time away. Ugh. I don't know. I hate living in black and white, but sometimes it's what I need to do.

Raisin, i like the children's book, the gift of nothing. so cute.

Tree, thanks! smile.gif
roseviolet
Raisin, I haven't done our taxes, either. My excuse is that there are some papers involving our property taxes that I need to dig up first and I just don't wanna do it. Wah. Oh, how I miss the old days of EZ forms.

By the by, internet breaks can be good things. You'll be amazed at the amount of shit you'll get done with all that new-found free time!

"Plaguey" is kinda fun to say. Plaguey plaguey plaguey.
raisingirl
But you're itemizing! That's a good excuse! I am such an enabler. Sorry. wink.gif

At least if I don't take a full-on internet break, I have GOT to limit it and get out the egg timer and set it for 30 minutes just so I can police myself. No more of this five minutes here and five minutes there throughout the day. It is dumb and I have to stop it.
lilacwine13
I wish I could help stargazer learn how to do nothing and rudderless be strong against temptation on Facebook. Can't do anything about spending too much time online because I'm having trouble with that myself.

I broke down and bought nail polish tonight, even though it will be a chipped mess in a day or two.

rudder, i love your reward system for the completion of schoolwork. Stats done= 2 Vodka Collins. laugh.gif Nice.

lilac, ambition + drive + blue colloar upbringing=you work your ass off. trust me, i'm enjoying this time off before i start working like a normal psychologist which is 2 full time jobs. unless, i meet some rich man who is willing to pay off my loans... mellow.gif blink.gif laugh.gif

confession - I find it really depressing that lately even my good guy friends who've known me for ages have been saying "why the FUCK don't you have a boyfriend?? You're amazing!"

I DON'T FUCKING KNOW!!! I'm even attracting genuinely good guys into my world these days - and they're STILL just not into it, or it's the wrong time, or etc..

I am really good at having a great, happy life on my own, don't get me wrong. But I do desire a good relationship. I'm starting to feel like the universe truly does not want me to ever be with a partner, and is doing it's best to show me this. bitch.



roseviolet
Raisin, I hate to break it to you, but I did our taxes today. I can no longer be your procrastination buddy. Sorry! well, not really, but you know.
culturehandy
zoya, I totally am with on that. My best friend, whom I was bonkers over, told me I was quite the catch.

Umm, if you think this, then WTF is going on?

Confession: I DO feel kinda badass about breaking my hand in such a way.

lol.... i love the pic, ketto, you look like a boxer!
but, i've said it before, premature infants could kick my ass, so i'm not sure that's a feat....
*snickers, thinking about when i was a bouncer in SF*

zoya, culture, a friend of mine told me in highschool that love comes around the week you stop looking for it. it's kind of a zen thing. i took his advise and stopped looking, waiting, wanting love, and sure enough, bam! it's been true for me everytime i ended up in a serious relationship. it's like playing hard to get. you convince the universe you need it like a fish needs a bicycle, to borrow a phrase, and what does the universe give you?

you guessed it.

personally i'm going to the cheesecake factory to get me some boobs while i wait....
Christine Nectarine
wow, they're giving out boobs at the cheesecake factory? and i thought cheesecake was exciting enough!

slightly OT, but Ketto is that your bedroom? because if it is, it looks exactly like my sister's room...weird.
(BTW i wouldn't want to mess with you based on that pic. i think now is the time to develop your "threatening" persona)
girltrouble
hells yeah, christine!

i got two pair! my everyday/sporty pair, and my "you're-staring-at-my-boobs/give-me-what-i-want/"jedi mind tricks" pair. they were free with the purchase of a dinner (i used my mind trick pair to get the sporty pair!)

I went out with a new guy weds night and ended up talking to his friend's roommate for several hours, while the original dude played chess. We clicked like crazy.

I'm a bad date : (
I did apologize to the first guy, and he still wanted to go out again.

I'm going out with the roommate tonight :D
zoya
confession: I habitually ignore any of the following who try to friend me on facebook:

classmates from grade school, junior high, or high school who I haven't thought of, let alone had contact with, since then.

people who are real life friends of my real life friends, especially when my friends have never even mentioned the person.

people who are just facebook friends of my friends.

people who want a job think I can get them one.


My litmus test for friends on facebook is: do I actually know them in real life and interact with them on a fairly regular basis? or if they're from my past, they have to have been a really close friend that I just happened to lose touch with.

it bugs me when people (specially old classmates) just wanna friend me so they can see what I look like and what I'm doing now. I actually use facebook to KEEP IN TOUCH with people I ACTUALLY KNOW AND INTERACT WITH!!

(I guess that last one was more of a cob, but still.)

confession: sometimes I feel shitty just ignoring those people's requests...... but not really that much. smile.gif
girl_logic
lol Zoya, I dig that. My list is close to your's and also includes anyone I'm sleeping with or might sleep with soon. No regrets there.
freckleface7
zoya: I too have a criteria for who remains on my crack friends list & am stealthily whittling it down week by week.
at first it was such a novelty, seeing how people turned out, and I Have made some great friends w/ people I wasn't neccessarily super close w/ as teens (1 is driving from IN to Atlanta and to NC to see me this weds - yah!) but I'm so much more qbout quality over quantity !
I really wish there was some sort of SOP or FAQ or Published Netiquette for how to cut people loose from there.

confession: despite my words of regret, I am really Not sorry about not meeting my other gf in Ral next week for the day. (she's also from IN and will be on her way to the Coast for a week) and in fact again- even tho I've more or less told her ".. I'm pretty sure the mr has to work.." I know for a FACT that I just really- don't- want- to.
I love her, but saw her 2 or 3 years ago face to face. staying in touch via the phone & internet is enough for me.

confession: I am hormonal & cranky & don't like anyone right now. mad.gif

rosev: have not forgotten about our visit.. how is the week starting the 12th looking for you?
april is a pretty crazi month but I think that week is a short break in between the chaos.
and I swear I will be happy & silly & we'll do all the girly hair-do stuffs bc I am super looking forward to meeting you face to face!
girltrouble
gosh z, i was wondering why you friended me, the defriended me... j/k

i was actually thinking of putting more pix up, then i thought again. facebook makes my brainsis hurt.... although it is pretty awesome to put nics to names, names to faces. i do love busties.

confession: sometimes I feel shitty just ignoring those people's requests...... but not really that much. smile.gif

there's a guy I went to school w/ a - huge kind of hulking, social oddball person.. he played drums in marching band w/ me. well, one on one he was ok, but when he got around the other guys, he'd turn totally obnoxious & say things in a uber creepy voice like " crotchrot!" as he was walking by the girls.
he has sent me 4 or 5 friend requests now & part of me thinks " he was in high school. we All did dumb obnoxious things back then to fit in" but then the other part of me slaps that part & says " Oh Hells to the NO! "

confession: after careful deliberation: I'm going to cut a few more people loose from crack today. (don't everyone here go run & check tho, most of ya's are all totally safe! wink.gif )

PS: I just cut 7 More from crack - w/ more I am just biding my time til it's decent to do so. !!

I'm the same way about facebook too. In fact, there's a woman I friended on there that I really want to let go but I don't know a polite way to do it. We were friends back in high school, but she was a snotty brat back then and it sounds like she hasn't changed at all. She also thinks I'm weird because I'm not *gasp* married with kids yet.

Speaking of facebook--I ended up having a really filthy conversation with one of the guys I'm friends with on there and now I'm wondering how our visit will go.
pollystyrene
If you un-friend people, it doesn't send them a notice or anything. You just disappear from their friends list. If they've got a lot of friends, it could be quite awhile until they notice.

I've got a couple of people I should un-friend; one of them is this woman who I only know through the Facebook wedding message board I post on. Her status update is ALWAYS something wedding related and she's not getting married until the end of the summer. I couldn't take another four months of "I picked out flowers today for our wedding. 120 days until we tie the knot!" or whatever. I think I'm just holding on to her until I can see what she's going to post after there's no more wedding to look forward to. rolleyes.gif Until then, hidden!
auralpoison
Um, I've been quietly unfriending people. This woman I knew from K-6, then 9-12 friended me all stealth like with some witness protection name. She's the first girl I ever recognized as being a "mean girl" when we were in thrid grade. She's still an evil biotch. Buh-bye.
culturehandy
I also unfriend people.

I recall one such occasion where one guy said my emotional needs were the same as my clients or whatever, something really rude, so I defaced him using my crackberry, and he only had a small number of friends, so he for sure noticed.

Or sometimes you have that friendrequest remorse, so let them add you or whatever, then deface them.
pollystyrene
Yeah, I have a friend, a guy I've known since high school. We have a mixed history. We were friends in high school- we sort of went on a date (his idea- it wasn't until after he asked me and I said yes that I realized it was a date) but were mostly just friends. He's also been friends with LeBoy for many years. He's a couple years older than me and after he came back from college he was just kind of an asshole. Shortly after that, LeBoy and I started dating and he got worse. I was basically treated like Yoko Ono- it was my fault LeBoy didn't hang out with him as much anymore (the fact that he was acting like a jackass and moved way out to bumblefuck had nothing to do with it!) We mostly didn't talk to him until last fall until we were all at a mutual friends wedding. We were cordial and later that week he joined Facbook and I got a friend request from him. I ignored it at first and then sent him a message that literally said, "So am I no longer "Yoko Ono", or are you just trying to build up your friends list?" He replied back and gave me some b.s. answer like, "you were never "Yoko Ono"; it was just the situation." Blah, blah, blah. Whatever. I accepted the request just to be nice.

A couple weeks ago, he and the friend whose wedding we re-connected at went out with LeBoy for dinner. The two of them (the friends, not LeBoy) complained about their wives the whole time, the old "ball and chain" routine. LeBoy said it was like a sitcom, it was so bad and cliche. They basically accused LeBoy of lying about how okay I was with him going out at all that night with his friends, let alone to Hooters for dinner (their choice, not LeBoy's; my reply when he told me he was going to Hooter's was "that's nice- food sucks, just to warn you!") They said there was no way I'd be okay with him going to Hooter's "because of all the feminist bullshit I post on Facebook." dry.gif laugh.gif Really? It sounds like the egalitarian feminist LeBoy is in a relationship with is a lot easier to deal with than the brain-dead girls they're with (who they both met through eHarmony, btw.)

My mouse is lingering over the un-friend button, but I so enjoy the idea of their discomfort with the feminist bullshit I post. Heh heh heh.
lilacwine13
The problem is, she doesn't have that many friends on facebook and I'm already friends with her on Myspace and I tried to set up plans to hang out with her earlier this year. She blew me off because of some ancient feud dating back to high school involving a couple of mutual friends, so she might notice or she might not.

Eh, fuck it. I'll just unfriend her and deal with the consequences. I'm too old and too grouchy for dealing with bullshit from fifteen years ago. I grew up and they didn't.

Confession: I've been following Fug Madness closer than I have been following the news.

heh... sounds like anti-feminism is workin' reeeeeeall good for 'em. what's funny is you know the food is terrible.
i love that they are so desperate to get away from their GFs, and the place they go is hooters..... that sounds like something someone in their 50's would do. i get the kitch appeal, but i don't get why people would go there seriously. their outfits are hideous. tan shiny hose? orange shorts? *shudder*

and no "boobies" from you, culture... dry.gif

Well, exactly, gt- the reason they go there is because those girls are just fun to look at, no strings attached, no obligations, etc. And I went there once. The scenery- meh. The food- blech.

Oh, and I hope everything works out with you and your sister.

Confession: I'm an only child & I've always liked it since I'm spoilt like left out milk.

Confession: Over the weekend I got to watch my aunties & uncles share stories about their childhoods & I was more than a teensie bit envious of their camaraderie. And that they had each other to lean on during the hard times.

But then I was also proud because I *represent* my father amongst them now. I AM the fifth musketeer. At one point, my uncle C leaned over & said, "That could have come out of your father's mouth, easy." I am my father's daughter & I feel good about that even if he was a prick sometimes.
girltrouble
excuse the long post, y'all are my friends, and since y'all are partially to blame (or thank, actually, since i found her thanks to facebook), i guess i want to thank you, but i want to explain why it means so much to me. a few days ago, after a birthday party with mr. t, where i got all weepy when i saw her adopted daughter, and her grand kids--my adopted family-- i started to understand the value of family. i got a bit family sick, so i found her on facebook. i sent her an email and today, she got back to me.

here is a snippet of the letter i sent to her:
QUOTE
i owe you an apology--- i was so fixated on waiting for mom to accept me that i forgot she isn't the whole family. i guess i was scared of more rejection, you know? i lost plenty of friends when i decided to live this life, and i guess i got a little gun shy. but i miss you.

she was very sweet, told me i looked good, and that she couldn't believe i was afraid she would reject me. then told me about my nephew, who wasn't even born last time i saw her, 2 nieces-- one married, the other a teenager. the younger one will always have a special place in my heart. she was little last time i saw her, and even though i was a boy a the time, she insisted on calling me she. the only person i had come out to was kitty. we both laughed about it, and thought she was pretty awesome.

my sister and i have come a long way. we fought constantly when we were kids, bad. like she chased me with a knife, fisticuffs, bad, and i was no saint, either. i had a horrible temper, and a seriously razor sharp tongue to match. but, in high school she got pregnant. my mom is an ordained minister now, but just very religious then. she wanted to send my sister away. i talked her out of it. i told her that our job was to make a difficult situation easier for her. as fucked up as our relationship was i believed the choice to keep the child or not was hers, and more, that whatever she decided we would back her up. that we would go to church with our heads held high, and if anyone said anything, then they were being judgmental, and equally sinful.

going to church was difficult when she started to show, and the preacher's wife was particularlly bad. all and all, i think that's when i started to move away from religion. honestly, i didn't think she should keep the baby, and talked to her about it. but i really respected my sister for making the choice that was right for her. since then i think there has been a level of respect that grew from back then. turns out she was a fantastic mom. now i'm all teary cos i think of all that time i was so afraid. i know i had cause, but i should have known better. i should have seen that my relationship with my mom was separate from the one i had with her. but maybe that relationship, maybe now it can grow on it's own. but it's good to have her in my life.

and i have busties to thank for it, since i never would have gone on FB had it not been because i adore so many of you... so thank you very much. for the friendship, the kind words, and the ((())). i owe you. from the ones who just ask me film questions to the busties who call me, i love you all very, very much.

you know I just made up w/ my sister after not speaking for 3 years or so and am still working on coming to terms with it emotionally.
when I read your post yesterday it hit me hard.

I am so glad for you sweetness, so very Very glad.
your sister sounds like an amazing woman, but she can't be 1/2 the woman you are.

ap: frecklette is also an Only & is very comfortable in her Sole Role.
she does however, get sick of me saying things like " frecklette? you know you're my favorite daughter."
to which she always replies w/ a dramatic Sigh " Mom, I'm your ONLY daughter ! " laugh.gif


April 10th is Sibling Day (I read it in a magazine).
