  • There are situations where the parents expect too much of kids, in particular young ones, they drag them around on errands when the kids are tired or hungry or just have had enough stimulation. Babies are the closest to primal beings most of will come in contact with,
    they don't come trained to function in the modern world so not surprising that their response is to scream when they've had enough.
    Life is death. We all take turns. It's sacred to eat during our turn and be eaten when our turn is over. RichMahogany.

      • Can't get into the mood for 2013 since I'm still irritated about a lot of 2012.

          • Ugh, had some wheat free, organic tamari on dinner. Nightmares that night. A week or so later, more tamari, more nightmares. No more tamari.

              But...it's over. Even if events are carrying over from the previous year...well, really, whenever, you just have to approach it with a fresh mind.

              • Swimsuits. I'm not concave; I don't have a 36" or greater ribcage; my tits are not in my armpits; and I don't want a one piece. That rules out 90% of bikini tops. add in that I want to actually swim and move in it without popping out, and I'm shopping online. For a swimsuit. When I have to ship back and wait for the refund on the 90% that don't fit right.
                Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                • Do they sell swimsuit tops the way they sell bra sizes? Maybe try Victoria's secret. If you aren't too much of an unusual size, maybe you can find something that way.

                  • They do, and that's how I get them. But one manufacturer's 30DD is another's 30E is another's 30D, just like in bras.

                    • People who ask my opinion about their terrible CW fitness and diet regimens, listen to my elevator speech about why it will do more harm than good, then go "well, at least I'm doing something." Well then why in the FUCK did you ask me?

                        Could you get actual tape measurements from the company (if you contact customer service)?

                        • Even if their tape measurements fit perfectly, there's still a chance that there's a seam in the wrong place, it just looks wrong on you, it's not flattering... same shit you get when shopping in stores for a swimsuit.

                          • I wouldn't know, everything is too big on me haha. I need stuff with minimal material so I can just work with the "fabric" instead of fighting with the padding or structure.

                            • You can rip the padding out. A small hole and a seam ripper are all it takes.

                              • so last summer i got a strip of bathing suit fabric. i was gonna be fancy and sew me a bandeau top

                                i never got around to it

                                so i just tied it around my chest, knotted it between my breasts, and it stayed and 'held' things in place well. if all else fails, maybe that will work?
                                beautiful
                                yeah you are

                                Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
                                lol
