haha I would certainly appreciate that honesty! I think it's important to be very clear about [I]where you are coming from[/I]. People just don't like being wrong.
For me...I don't know, I'm a push-over maybe. I don't like confrontation. I don't know how to handle it. It upsets me to see people butting heads. That's just how I am, nobody's fault. Doesn't mean it couldn't use improvement, but who knows how to start with that.
I thought I'd cheer myself up by browsing cheap wedding dresses! Then my vision got flooded by images of white dresses and I started to feel worse. I cannot see myself in any of those dresses. I am a visual person and I need to see MYSELF in a dress style before I will know what I like and what I want. I just want to have a girly window-shopping date with someone and try on dresses at Nordstrom or J. Crew. I suggested this to my sister once, but she hasn't not reciprocated in trying to make plans with me. :rolleyes: I don't think I could deal with her anxiety over money right now either. I have enough of my own.
Places around DC might be affordable. Bwahahahaha. Hahahahahaha! Well, maybe by Boston's standards . . . Also, visit the Chesapeake before you decide to use it as your "swimmable body of water." Says the person that grew up swimming in it.
"Around" DC is like...greater Annapolis area or VA! That's why I said you'd have to drive a little ways (over an hour) :).
[QUOTE=canio6;1096294]I'd be interested to know how you came to that conclusion.[/QUOTE]
Probably by reading too many ookie things as research for my book. Oh, and that Twilight and 50 Shades are both best sellers and sooooooo romantic!
[QUOTE=namelesswonder;1096492]I'm only in season 1. He's a classic "nice guy," harassing Buffy when she is clearly putting out signals that she's not interested and acting like he's entitled to her. The woman who made that comment is probably only a year or two older than me, so 25 or 26? I had to stop & think for a minute about how old I am (I have been forgetting lately, not really relevant to my life).
I've heard that Xander gets better, but it's not really a great start![/QUOTE]
Huh. Well, she should know better, then.
I saw him as a socially awkward guy that had a super big crush and not much sense, but maybe I was giving him too much credit? He does get better.
Dammit, move to Texas! I'd take you girly bridey shopping!

Being from Boston, you're probably familiar with city traffic, but just a reminder that 60 miles does not by any means equal an hour.

*tuggingarm* SO would I!!!
Aww thanks ladies.
Drssgchic, yeah... Sometimes I forget there's a reason why certain areas specify in MILES not hours :D.
I made this [url=http://paleodietlifestyle.com/chocolate-pudding/]Chocolate Pudding | Paleo Diet Lifestyle[/url]
But I used some maple syrup and carob powder in addition to the recipe's indications. And I didn't have almond butter. I think that would've rounded off the flavor. The carob powder is too noticeable, but all in all, it takes on an excellent pudding consistency and is a nice treat after a stressful week.
If you've got friends around there, though, they can probably tell you what places are within reasonable commute distance to the city.
