Are you a lady in a profesh office with a nose stud? I'd like to hear about that. I'm in my late 20s and considering bc I think they look quite elegant.

On The Hummuses of Brooklyn

omg seriously. if you're not actually going to move to the middle east...anywhere...and just eat at the syrian restaurant all the time... then move to the UK and buy TESCO HUMMUS (or don't move to the UK and buy fresh and easy HUMMUS in America because its the same), it clearly has the creamy goodness that TJ's gross bean mash is missing.

On Selective Empathy and "An Outlet for Maternal Feelings"

Just a very late addition here for LW1 - don't worry I'm not going to rip into you. For me, I try to focus on owning my actions. In fact, they are the only things I can control - my actions, and how I react to others. Sometimes I choose to be "good." Other times I make choices I know are "bad' or "naughty." But when I make "bad" choices, I try not to justify them to myself or to others beyond - I wanted to. I don't blame the alcohol, because I know that I do what I want to do. I try to recognize that my decision to do X was about my desire to do X - not about fate hurtling me uncontrolably towards some one, not about - sorry, girl- making imaginary people's pride not be wounded. No, if X happens its about my willingness for X to happen, and, if there's another party involved, their willingness. "Bad" behavior - any action, really, has consequences. As a rational thinking person, you can imagine some of them. And when you choose to do something, you accept this. So the only thing you can do is own your actions - to sleep with the guy, to not sleep with the guy, whatever - and stop trying to involve the Forces Of the Universe. You control you. You decide how you behave. And you decide how you feel about your behavior. Finito.

On Shared Spaces, Lie-Measurement, and the Manageable Hassle

@Countess Maritza ARE WE SISTERS? (No - because I'm an only child). My parents are MANIACS OF CLEANLINESS and the house looks like a magazine 100% of the time. There is NOTHING out of place. When I come to visit (I AM AN ADULT OF THIRTY MY GOD) there is much "teasing" about my messiness, which is fine. But then it's not fine sometimes when I get lectured or told "I wish we'd made you do chores", or, the WORST, "you'll care when you own your own home." LOL GUESS WHAT I WON'T CARE! I've actually given up after I cooked a 3 course meal, tidied, and my parents re-cleaned the kitchen and told me I hadn't even tried. Sanitary conditions are what I need and can provide for myself. I don't want to live in Dwell. :::SOBS::: (yes this is probably the number one "issue" in my fam)
