BRILLIANT. And bringing back some good memories, too.
@Emby I think what you're feeling is totally normal - if it were one of your friends getting more responses, you'd be happy for them and a little sad for you. It doesn't sound like you're being a big pouty baby about it or making her feel bad for getting more responses/interviews. Job searching is just hard. Hope something good comes up for you (and your gf) soon!
So, any other nerds here who spent their summers doing Junior Great Books at the library? No? Yeah, me neither...
@Scandyhoovian my husband stands next to me if it's buggy because they bypass him entirely and go straight for me. I must smell like a mosquito's favorite bakery. :|
Whoever wrote that hate letter is a true poet. I can't decide if I want to use Real, Real Men or Prostitutional Ass as my new band name.
MYOB Monster - Targets people who ask women intrusive questions about their marital and/or reproductive statuses. Uses entire rolls of duct tape over victims' mouths.
@Jinxie this is not a Popsicle but when I was living in Chicago with no AC (no one realizes how damn hot and humid it can get in Chicago!) I used to make a big old Tupperware container of vodka lemonade and stick it in the freezer. My friends and I would scoop it into cups and eat it with spoons. So refreshing!!
@iceberg This feeling is exactly why I don't ever want to go to places like the concentration camps (or Alcatraz for that matter). And why I don't understand why tourists come to NY to see Ground Zero. I get that people want to see history/try to understand the impossible/pay respects -- but that feeling. I can't bear that feeling. It's like feeling the panic of claustrophobia but you're out in the open. (shudder)
