@A. Louise My partner's father passed away a week ago of a brain tumor. We both watched him take his last breath. Sunday is going to be hard, and very strange.
@tee I guess I'll tell my own feminism story while I'm here...
My parents (especially my dad) raised me to believe I could do or be whatever I wanted, be it an adventurer, a detective, a volcanologist or a pro soccer player (all things I wanted to be when I was little). I think I was really disappointed as a young girl to discover that the world didn't celebrate women who wanted to be strong and independent and brilliant. I officially became a feminist when I went to university and discovered that what I already was had a name.
My friend is on this list :D
@martinipie No makeup and smeary glasses! That's me, too. All I really care about is being comfortable on the plane, but I am truly in awe of the people who manage to look dewy and uncrinkled after a flight.
@werewolfbarmitzvah Okay, but doesn't Retin-A dry your skin out like crazy? And LW1 said she already has pretty dry skin. I have the same problem! I want to use this miracle product but I'm afraid that my face will disintegrate into a pile of skin flakes (gross, sorry).
Ottawa? But why?? Yes, there's a nice canal, but other than that... just, no.
@gobblegirl Americans have mac and cheese at Thanksgiving? That sounds pretty okay to me...
Oh man, I love Thanksgiving so much. We had ours last month, here in Canada. I'm so jealous of you guys :(
@frigwiggin We're in the exact same situation! Just wanted to let you know.
@Misselthwaite Nope, she totally says Muslim!
