I am ALWAYS late to the celebrity news party, and this is prob true here, but I also just found out that after American Pie, she she became an actual heroin addict, was hospitalized for a heart infection and Hep C, etc. It is awesome she is doing so well now and is able to aim all that experience at at her character.
@stuffisthings Yes. On 14th St, you need to camp out in a sleeping bag to get in line to get reservations for Tuesday lunch.
Wall-to-wall wine bars in Columbia Heights? I wish. There's like two.
@Laughable Walrus Thanks! Yeah, I did actually start with that, although I struggled to find someone that a) nearby, b) accepting patients, and c) had an appointment within 3 weeks. But maybe I should give it another shot. Also, I had been looking for psychologists, not social workers, but maybe I should rethink that.
Does anyone have an idea on how to find a good therapist? (I'm in DC area.) Or references, maybe?
@Emby Wow I literally just read this (in the print version)! Only a couple hours before seeing your comment. I heartily endorse anyone in the DMV to check out the print version, its a huge layout on the front page of the Style section, you can't miss it. Its a great article and the pics really add a lot.
(Side note: I always read the Style section first cuz the rest is always so depressing. I need to work my way into it.)
@RNL I've never been super comfortable being the recipient of flirtatious behavior because it is difficult for me to tell when the person is serious (something AQC noted). So if I think they might consider me a *potential* partner (and the feeling isn't mutual) the flirting is a teensy bit stressful for me. I don't want to act coldly toward them, but also don't want to unintentionally signal my interest.
So anyway I guess I was wondering if the opposite would be true? Would a flirter feel awkward if they became aware that the flirtee was a potential (using this word very broadly) partner? I don't know, but I actually I thought it was nice that LW1 was concerned. Nothing to overthink, to be sure, but I think its a possibility.
Wow, my husband and I are both mid-thirties, and I've never felt any child-hater vibes. I mean, I've grown apart from some people. I've encountered the Martyr Moms. But this level of angst is completely foreign to me. I DO have some issues with how my workplace seems to view family-related (read:kids-related) leave as more important than other types of leave (to visit friends, for example, or take a trip with my husband). But absolutely nothing on this level.
And completely out of left field: Anyone been to Kuala Lumpur or anywhere in Nepal? Thoughts? Recs for accommodations?
@all A belated thank you to all... very helpful. The travel will be a mix of urban and country, developed and less developed areas, active/outdoorsy and, er, hedonistic drinking/eating/dancing. I have very specific shoes I need to wear, and they aren't dressy and don't go well with skirts, so thats the biggest challenge. I think its very good advice to stick with a style...thats something I have failed to do in the past, at my peril (ie, bringing a bunch of cute shits that dont go with anything else in my suitcase). I will def check out the places mentioned here.
