On Which Spice Girl Were You in Fifth Grade?

for some reason at our school, every "spice girl club" had all member positions filled but scary. and if you wanted to join that club, that was your only option. as a social pariah, of course that was my role and i despised it, but as an adult it's the only one i'd choose for myself.

On America Is Losing at Coffee

@OhMarie it's not so much the caffeine for me as it is the heartburn! coffee gives me massive heartburn, but at/before breakfast it's not as bad. if i have it before bed i know i'm going to be in some serious pain!

On Your Nice, Healing Echinacea Tablets May Be Merely "Powdered Rice and Weeds"

I take a B stress complex vitamin and I know it's doing something because it makes my pee highlighter yellow. I feel less energetic when I forget it, and it + magnesium during shark week help to fight off the crazies.

On Other People's Kids, Homes

We used to be friends with a couple who had children, and they treated my husband like a human jungle gym whenever we visited them, and the parents always said nothing! It's not like he could physically remove 7 year old girls from his body, and they had no qualms about where to touch him. Very awkward, and the parents said nothing.

They were also horrible to animals, so whenever the parents wanted to come over to our house the kids were banished to the yard. As in not allowed in my home whatsoever. One thing I don't need is kids terrorizing my cat and accidentally touching my husband's junk while we try to eat a meal.

On Conversations With Old Men

@Tafadhali Yesterday I thought I was being subjected to the ever-present Chicago mating call, "daaaaaayum, girl..." but he ended it with "you gotta start wearing sunscreen!"

On Bless Us, Every One

@dj pomegranate Here's the thing though- when you fill out a form where you have to check whether you're a Mrs. or a Ms. what do you put? Is that actually something they use to tell whether or not you're married, or is it your preference?

On Chicago: Hot or Not?

@Rock and Roll Ken Doll I live in Pilsen, too! My biggest gripe about this community crime-wise is the general idea that I don't have the right to walk to the grocery store without being cat called a minimum of once per block. You're absolutely right about the gang violence though... I've heard of it, I've seen a little drug action, and I got shoved once by a group of teenagers, but I've certainly never seen anyone whip out a gun.

On The Inspirational Poster Pie

@vexosaurus Before we go any further, I'd just like to point out how disturbing it is that you equate eating a block of cheese with some sort of bachelor paradise.

On Boston Pinners and Non-Pinners, Be Safe

@parallel-lines Yeah, really don't look at the pictures or watch the news feed. It is so gory.
