I hate gendered shit like this. Putting all else aside, it never even occurred to me — or indeed, probably to children — that the fish had a gender. But make a "girl" version of something, all of a sudden by default every other variety of the snack (or toy) becomes male gendered. » 9/15/14 3:29pm Yesterday 3:29pm

I can't really say. I think it is different for everyone in what they have, what they want, and what they can live with. For me, passion comes and goes, and not always in the same person at the same time. Sometimes one of us is fired up while the other is not feeling it. Sometimes both of us are the same at the same… » 9/15/14 11:56am Yesterday 11:56am

I can't wait for Hyrule Warriors' release and I don't care who knows it. On the other hand, I don't much care about Destiny. I'd play it if I had the right system, it does look cool and all, but even then I'd probably feel lukewarm about buying it. » 9/15/14 10:06am Yesterday 10:06am

I've had reasonable success with simple oil and spice mixed with other vegetables, but… » 9/12/14 10:31am Friday 10:31am

It depends on your own family tree, but we've had success by simply limiting name choices to the names of our ancestors. First, it cuts down on the limitless choices so it wasn't so daunting. Of course there are plenty of Johns but there are also some fun ones in there: Augustus, Aldric, and Henry or Adeoda, Cephilia,… » 9/12/14 10:26am Friday 10:26am

Seriously. The only reason my husband can even get his advanced degrees is because I'm making the money. I may always make more money (maybe so, maybe not). And sometimes he - gasp - stays home with the children because his schedule is more flexible than mine. We own a home and don't worry too much about finances. We… » 9/12/14 10:03am Friday 10:03am
