[QUOTE=Raymo0nd;1028938]Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway.[/QUOTE]
Raymo0nd? That's an odd spelling. Is it pronounced Ray-mooned or just Raymond? Or Raymo-ZERO-nd? That last one would certainly make you stick out in a crowd. Sometimes I had students whose names made them stick out a little too far, and I pitied them for the life ahead of explaining (and explaining and explaining) their unique monikers. Well, Raymo-ZERO-nd, for I assume the emphasis is on the ZERO, thank you for visiting. I [I]was[/I] supposed to be editing, which I am doing to avoid cleaning the kitchen, and you provided yet another level of shilly-shally to a procrastinating panda.
[QUOTE=Gay Panda;1028935]I think, had I become a parent and found this on my Facebook feed month after month after month, I would wrestle a slight feeling of inadequacy for not doing the same. Lady Friend has a Facebook friend who is so strident in her opinions that SHE IS DOING EVERYTHING RIGHT AS A PARENT AND YOU ARE NOT that it is hard to read the posts even as a cubless panda and not feel defensive. You chose to have your son circumcised? WELL, YOU ARE A CHILD ABUSER. You decided to formula feed? YOU ARE POISONING YOUR BABY AND SOCIAL SERVICES SHOULD TAKE HER AWAY. You put that baby in diapers? IF YOU CARED ENOUGH TO LEARN HIS CUES, YOU COULD GET HIM TO THE CAN IN TIME. AND THEN HE WOULDN'T GET DIAPER RASH. You are letting the baby cry it out at night? YOUR CHILD WILL GROW UP TO BE INSECURE AND A PSYCHOPATH. You are sending your older child to school? YOU ARE AN IGNORANT TWIT LETTING THE GUVVIE SCHOOLS BRAINWASH HIS FRAGILE LITTLE MIND!
It is very tiresome.[/QUOTE]
and then Lady Friend replies '...you need to get laid.'
[QUOTE=bloodorchid;1028956]and then Lady Friend replies '...you need to get laid.'[/QUOTE]
I will tell Lady Friend that is what she should say next time Perfect Parent starts some new diatribe. There is never any room for disagreement or civil discourse with Perfect, because YOU ARE WRONG. You had a hospital birth? YOU'RE LUCKY YOU CAME HOME AT ALL. You picked up McDonald's on the way home because you're exhausted from work and don't have the energy to cook? YOU ARE EVIL TO FILL YOUR CHILD WITH TOXINS AND IF YOU TRULY LOVED HIM, YOU'D WORK AT HOME AND GROW ENOUGH ORGANIC FOOD TO FEED YOUR FAMILY ALL YEAR.
It just goes on and on, and even on the rare occasions I [I]do[/I] agree with her, I don't want to say anything because she's so damn obnoxious.
i almost hate i'm not fb friends with her, because i would have to up the ante from you need to get laid to 'yank the stick out of your butt and go hop on a penis'
just for funsies

And yes, the age thing? It's cute when small children are emphatic that they are three-and-a-half. Not so cute when a grown adult does it (especially when they use baby voices...urgh).
It's like grown-ups that publicly announce their "month-aversaries" or whatever on FB. I don't care that you and your smooshie-poo have been together for a whole two months and you're So! In! Lurve! Next thing you'll be doodling your name in a big heart with his last name on your binder during business meetings. Please, just don't.[/QUOTE]
I actually deleted an old HS friend on Facebook for just this behavior.
Hello... you are almost 40.
Doodles that say "X person <3 X person" or "Initials + Initials 4-ever" really should have been over with way back then.
Yes, I deleted you.
No I'm not sorry I did that.
Feel free to bad mouth me to the rest of the crew from my home town that never grew up. ;)
I deleted someone from my Twitter feed when I didn't check it for three days and came back to SEVENTY messages all from the same guy. Such gems as 'I'm stuck in traffic' to 'My cat woke me up' to 'Is a peanut a pea or a nut? HAH-HAH.' to 'I exercised'.
I don't care.
I don't care.
I don't [I]care[/I].
