On Logan Echolls Syndrome, Cohabitation Power Politics, and The Girlfriend Label

@paddlepickle Good point! Yes, I am a cycle commuter and a weepy ride is no biggie especially on a cold day, because then really who can tell the difference, but I would not want to have to sit on a bus/subway with a puffy face.

Maybe coffee shop within three blocks of said person's apartment as a compromise? On their turf, but not in their actual home.

On Logan Echolls Syndrome, Cohabitation Power Politics, and The Girlfriend Label

@themegnapkin Agreed, except I am also the wierdo who prefers being broken up with by phone (I mean, do check where I am/make sure it's fairly private) soooo I could be an outlier.

Unless you're cohabitating and there's a sticky wicket (like we have to sort this out before someone flounces off) I'd say: find a tucked away spot near a back exit at a coffee shop. Buy that person a scone. Don't be surprised if person throws scone in your face.

Ditto on not wanting break up memories in the actual place that I live.

On ‘Tis the Saison: How to Entertain for Easter

I know this is a sponsored post, but let me just say that I love shandies and shizz that I can make in my crockpot. So spot on advertisers, spot on.

@OhMarie I'd go with 'Flub', which would be short of 'Mother Flubbin Kitten'. Otherwise names that reference fuzziness or smallness or a combination thereof.

ETA: And I can never have a kitten, so that name is forever free for the taking.

@coolallison Oh I am counting down the minutes. Your list is banging, in particular #3 and #4. :) I'm camping this weekend, which I should add to my list, because it will be nice to be out among the trees and rocks (really, it's just humanity that is on my shit-list right now).

@adorable-eggplant I just thought of one more thing: margaritas.

@stonefruit It's the same for objections to catcalling: the response is always something like, "I'm calling you a hottie, shut up or pretend to enjoy it." And when people try to explain that even for people who do fit the face-of-the-future hazel-eyed mould this kind of stuff is insulting and degrading, there's always a backlash. Don't get it? Fine, sorry you cannot have some basic empathy.

@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) Cannot wait, I'm having a tough day, so the best I can come up with is whiskers on kittens. Those are nice. Everything else? Not nice.

@up cubed DDDDDDDDDDDDDDD....: (those are frowny faces + tears, I cannot even with this fetishizing of mixed identities)

ETA: And it's all so so people can smuggly pat themselves on the back for being 'accepting'.
