I've been to this place a few times and it is tasty, but there is something really depressing about eating the state bird. Especially since quail are so cute. delicious, but so cute.
@Jinxie Agreed, I don't have a ton of friends here and could definitely use a pin-up, or a running/drinking buddy etc. Everyone's invited to my shitty apartment to watch tv in bed and pet my dramatic kitty.
@par_parenthese oh and get those physical therapy stretchy bands, hook it around a table leg and the other end around your ankle, and do like tiny little ankle extensions using resistance from each side and front and back.
@raised amongst catalogs oh god lady we have been in the same boat. Current dumping boyfriend is actually the rebound from my previous 5 year relationship which sounds a lot like your situation, except more like "you're so special and I love you so much and therefore I am moving really far away and not actually asking you to come with me." I'm starting to think I must be attracted to men on the verge of existential crisis. My parents try to be sweet about it but they are killing me when evertime I go on a date with someone they ask if he's "marriage-minded."
@par_parenthese oh, we are so compatible! I am also a runner. While I like minimalist shoes in the moment of running, I had to switch to something more traditional becaise I was getting ankle pain and shin splints. I find that the super lightweight shoes without the heavy/tall heel padding feel pretty nice but don't get me the same ankle issues. also, do some weight training. Squats and lunges on a stability ball, etc. Get a trainer for 3 sessions or so and they can show you so many exercises to avoid injuries!
@par_parenthese if you were in the bay area I would make you watch so much homeland with me right now
@par_parenthese thanks, wifey! At least I'm already married to you and can throw that at my mom this weekend when she gives me the "why can't you hang onto a man!!!" face.
@raised amongst catalogs my cat is also yowling because she wants to go outside and is also not allowed because she climbs in other people's yards and gets stuck. So she just stares at the door and yowls, and refuses to get bored of it.
Why is your boyfriend being confusing? Mine is apparently breaking up with me because he's uncertain that he's certain enough about our future, even though we are in our 30s and he says it's the best relationship he's ever had. Bleah. I will very happily take a chicken dinner and bourbon. Also maybe our cats could meet up and shut up.
I think my boyfriend is in the process of dumping me and my cat won't stop yowling.
I really really hate everything.
@royaljunk a martini and wink at your bottle of pain meds.
