    I bet you feel sexy- it sounds like a sexy outfit

    Yes, my rolly chair is the bane of my favorite skirt. It's ankle-length, heavy, very swishy, and ALWAYS getting run over.

    I'm with FW on the behavior. I don't care what "excuse" he had for prompting it, that is not ok. Not at all. If he's essentially threatening you, then the way he's "dealing with" his issues is not working and he needs to actually deal with them.

    Swimming is always a great thing in my book. Great exersize and feels so good! 68 deg is kinda cool for my spoiled butt though!

    68 is seriously too cold. Lawl maybe it was that cold thermowhatevernesis that people talk about that made me feel slimmer today =P

    My orange was delicious. I wish I had another.

    I just went outside. It "feels like" 96 outside, according to my weather app, but the sun is hiding so I found it very comfortable, especially after the AC. As much as I become a pile of melty goo in hot and humid (43% today, I think it was worse yesterday), I don't like air-conditioning very much, even if it helps me sleep!

    Thanks dude!

    I caved and had a Swiss Miss cocoa today (kind of used it to soothe anxiety over discussing my tattoo with co-workers since it's out in the open today). Instant stomach ache, and now a headache! That'll learn me (probably not though).

    Oh noes... why does discussing your gorgeous tatt give you anxieties?
    Enjoy the cocoa... but try to avoid the headache if it's a by-product.
    Maybe make cocoa the old fashioned way... stove, milk and/or cream, sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla... bonus here... as chocolate-y as you want it! I like to add dark dutched cocoa to up the Nom factor.

    I'm sure classic cocoa would be absolutely fine. I needs me some good cocoa powder.

    I get anxious talking about my tattoo...I don't know... It's very personal. I like to share these things, but with co-workers, it's a step I haven't taken since college days when I was friends with many of my co-workers prior to the job. Today, I talked to one of the managers while working on her computer, about cooking. It was very friendly and pleasant, and she asked about my tattoo and I gave the quick version "grandma grandpa represents them love them etc.". My Russian co-worker asked so I gave the full version with the meaning of the names and how they built a life here. He said it was very romantic. I'm afraid of negative comments because I don't react quickly. I've never been good for a come-back. Now, I think if someone had said something negative, I'd say, "Well, good thing it's not on you then," but I can't think of those things on the spot. I don't like seeming slow, but I am.

    Ahh... I understand completely.
    The art is very personal when it's custom.
    It's easier to dismiss someone you don't have to look at face to face.

    Therapy tomorrow is going to be interesting. I am still looking forward to it despite a likely forecast of tears.

    I was like this. Seriously, if you want to, it is a skill you can learn (comebacks).

    Here's a few things that are easy to trot out when you feel that people could be criticising/advising/bossing you:
    "that's what a good person would do" (my favourite)
    "I am in complete agreement with that allegation"
    "I'll be sure to take that under consideration"
    "Not bad for a tuesday"
    "Did you think of that yourself or did somebody help you?"
    "It's true. I'm so lame" (Simpsons quote)
    "Oh, I could never be good enough to do that"
    "Indeed"
    "Fascinating"

    Things like that. The best thing about it is that people mistake it for wit and a sense of humour. But it doesn't take as much creativity or energy as them.

    The beauty of sayings like that is that they are either indirect enough to deflect whoever is saying the thing you are uncomfortable enough or tangential enough that they almost change the subject. And you don't have to mean any of them. In fact some of them are a little ambiguous so you almost *have* to be misleading them on some level, right?

    Anyway, sorry if I'm blundering in and offering unintended help. Feel free to discard my post if you so desire.
