@LacunaKale Portuguese kale soup is SO GOOD. Do you have the actual Portuguese sausage, or just the Spanish chorizo? I can't get the Portuguese sausage here, and I swear there's a huge difference.
This was such a great interview!
I loved this.
I've only ever had them when coming off birth control (Ortho Evra patches, specifically - I've never taken any other kind). I remember them as severe pain, nausea, dizziness, and sensitivity to light. I just went to bed, threw the duvet over my head, and waited for death.
Stupidly, I went off that same birth control three times before I realized that I actually didn't enjoy dating or sleeping with men all that much.

Oh, I'm going to have to watch this later. I suspect that I will love and hate it in equal measures, which sounds like an insult but which I promise is not.
Basically anything that requires me to do a task after hours of having no work to do. I need to be constantly focused or I get sloppy.
Also, anything that's math-heavy. I wasn't terrible at math or hard sciences by any means, but there's no way I could be an engineer or a chemist or a mathematician. My brain will work that way, with a lot of effort, but I'll get a headache and want to cry. I couldn't do that for eight hours.
@victorian rose Seriously.
@Faintly Macabre I have done literally no upkeep on the jacket I've worn for three years. I just treated it once and have worn it in the rain and snow. It's not quite as wonderfully soft as it was when I bought it, but it still looks great.
@PomoFrannyGlass That is pretty much exactly what happened to me and my fiancee. I feel like I talk about how great she is all the time, and I've told the story of how we met a couple of times, so I won't go into detail again, but yes, it's totally possible and you will not be cheerfully dead inside forever!
@blueblazes Ugh, I remember that pain. I would walk into condos and just be like "well...it's the right size. The location is nice. EVERYTHING ELSE IS TERRIBLE OH MY GOD."
I did find two lovely move-in-ready places eventually, though! I'm sure your home is out there waiting for you.
