On “Thank you so much. I am that girl that ate out that girl on the show.”

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.

On Best D.C. Metro Stations to Name a Baby After

@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.)

On Recreational Flirting and Other People's LDRs

@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.

On Other People's Kids, Homes

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.
