Ok- here's the trick, see. Carbonated water in some of the new, ultra yum flavors. Lot's of them are sugar/artificial sweetener/etc free. I'm a huge fan of LaCroix(the peach pear is the tits) and if you live in an area where you can get your hands on Polar orange vanilla water?My body runs on that shiz. And you need… » 3/28/14 6:46am 3/28/14 6:46am

In college, my friends and I would mix up batches of Bloody Stalins- straight red kool-aid mix dumped into the cheapest vodka-esque hooch we could scrape up money for. No water, it was slightly too thick and overly sweet/boozy.
Good times.... » 3/12/14 5:24pm 3/12/14 5:24pm

Well isn't that special for you? Now, what if you were like me? I'm fat. Oh, but but but! I work 60-70 hours a week in a highly physical job (I'm an embalmer, all I do is lift dead weight, and I'm on my feet moving the entire day). I eat very health consciously- lots of carcinogens in my line of work doncha know- so I… » 3/08/14 5:32pm 3/08/14 5:32pm

So at risk of outing my self as completely out of the loop- how do these crowd funding sites work?. Like, I'm kind of tired of knitting/crocheting with acrylics and I'd like the internet to buy me some sweet Malabrigo or Anzula yarns. I'll make my backers some hats. » 2/28/14 6:28am 2/28/14 6:28am

I'm young(ish) and I do needlecraft. My grandmother taught me how to knit and crochet when I was a kid and I just really liked doing it. But now? Now it's not a fun crafty hobby- now I have to fend off the 'hipster' label because it's "so quirky to knit! Gosh, you must be so crafty and hipstery!"
So I feel your pain… » 2/24/14 3:59am 2/24/14 3:59am

Well, the whole engagement ring shenanigans started as a kind of insurance policy. He gives her a honkin' diamond worth some cash, if he decides to split before the big day, she has something to help recoup her losses. Also, that money could help prop her up financially while she begins her new life as a spinster… » 2/20/14 1:03pm 2/20/14 1:03pm

So, slightly off topic- but I work with a woman that absolutely no one likes. Nobody has kind words for her, and rarely to her. She is rude, condescending and disrespectful even to bosses FAR above our paygrade. But still she will whine about how everybody is mean to her.
There are some people who are just absolutely… » 2/19/14 3:14pm 2/19/14 3:14pm
