Been reading for quite a while, and finally decided on a name. Little bit geek, part artist, might sing sometimes, love the maths.
Thank you for these thoughts. They resonate strongly for me.
@gbt Really? I am a fat woman, and I would love to have had this description of myself, "and she looked amazing. The accordion pleating on the patterns looked like sound waves narrating the tempest. She was waiting for the bus in the dark and she looked remarkably beautiful." Since when is it not okay to call someone fat? Since someone decided that was a derogatory term, well it's not, unless you let it be. Maybe you should have read past the word fat and your own issues with the word.
Logging in to say, Thank you! You will be missed and I hope to continue seeing your by-line in other places.
I have often felt this way! I hated the idea of softball so much I never bothered with it. I can't handle the softball and could never throw it right, but a baseball?! Yes, please.
I'm glad I made it through to the end. The end was worth the read.
@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) Generally speaking (as someone who uses ranch on pizza) I only use it on cheap freezer pizza to make the taste a little more palatable. If it is good pizza, ranch is not to be seen on my pizza.
@Slim Charles@facebook I logged in just to agree!
@Frankeneeka D'oh! Well that makes sense. I didn't even think of that.
@Frankeneeka I'm really confused. What would be the correct way to say the car needs washed? Would it need washing? I have never thought there was another way to say it. (Indiana here)

@shiv I just wanted to tell you that I agree. The 24 hour book is also a good one for anyone and not just xx-oholics.
