I am a lady who lives in a place.
Best one yet. "That's where you keep your treats and treasures!"
@missannethrope Our nanny's son is in high school. She works limited hours during the week, is done in the afternoon, and takes her son to school and picks him up every day and is home with him at night and on weekends. As much as I love her, I would LOVE to have spent the last four years with rambunctious twins doing nothing but parenting them while also magically making enough money to contribute to our family's financial needs, but it didn't work out that way, unfortunately, and I'm glad we were able to work out an alternative."
I'm laughing so hard I'm sweating. I got a visit from two dachshund puppies at work and kept saying, "They are so cute, I'm dying. I'm dead. I'm a ghost now." And this fits just perfectly, because it's just such an absurd saying.
By the little c on "Maybe I needed to prove that I'm wife material. If he wanted 300 sandwiches, I’d give him 300 sandwiches"
Okay but the most important problem with this is why is she dating a man with hair like Ralph Cifaretto from the Sopranos?

I loooove my home and work desktops (they're both stills from The Seventh Seal, but different ones) except nobody ever sees them except my boyfriend and the IT guys at work. I wish everyone would see them. So, I have the opposite problem.
"Young people with raging hormones and low impulse control are passing around what amounts to child pornography."
NOPE NOPE NOPE this is not biology + technology. This is rape culture + entitlement to women's bodies
"It's a perfect storm of technology and hormones," says lawyer Lori Andrews, director of the Institute for Science, Law and Technology in Chicago. "Teen sexting is all a way of magnifying girls' fantasies of being a star of their own movies, and boys locked in a room bragging about sexual conquest."
No. No no no no no. Do NOT conflate boys taking pictures of themselves sexually assaulting a teenage girl and people passing those pictures around with "teen sexting." Do not say it's a "storm of technology and hormones", thereby disappearing the actual perpetrators making deliberate choices to assault and photograph someone and disseminate those photos. This phenomenon has absolutely nothing to do with teen girls wanting to star in their own movies, and to say it does is victim-blaming bullshit. This is part of the problem. It is not about sex, it is not about hormones or easy access to technology - it is about rape and rape culture. There is a reason the boys who assault these girls and the people who pass the photos around don't believe what they are doing is wrong, and it ain't hormones.
@LilRedCorvette Oh my lord, California. Every election cycle we have these completely bullshit propositions on the ballot, and still a sexual assault on an unconscious victim is not considered forcible.
@LilRedCorvette A sexual assault on an unconscious victim is not considered forcible.
"California prosecutors are limited by a statute requiring a sexual assault committed by a minor age 14 and over to be "forcible" in order to directly qualify for adult court. A sexual assault on an unconscious victim is not considered forcible."
A sexual assault on an unconscious victim is not considered forcible.
