@vunder None of my close friends are married yet, so I haven't had to think about it. But the whole concept of picking bridesmaids and then making them PAY FOR dresses that YOU choose is just beyond me. I will probably never in my life spend $200 on a dress (borrowed my prom dress), and definitely not on one of someone else's choosing. Maybe not a big deal if you're not perpetually broke, but I am. If you want a big fancy wedding with fancy matching bridesmaids' dresses, you foot the bill. I'm going to the courthouse when my time comes.
@NotAndersonCooper YES. You get all the cooling power without the dilution.
I think I would prefer alien clouds. An alien invasion would be less painful to my sinuses.
@brilliantmistake When mine got hacked, they bought all kinds of weird mail-order shit (and some monthly subscriptions, which were HELL to get rid of), but had it all delivered to my address. In my name. Including flowers. I'm not sure if they were just really dumb, or if they were trying to teach me a lesson about making my wireless more secure...
@werewolfbarmitzvah I feel pretty OK about my reading choices too - at least, the ones I loved. If we were talking about past musical tastes, though, I would have much to say.
@harriet welch Oh, me too. I never made it to Finnegan's Wake (I have it, I just never started it), but I was a pretentious ass about Ulysses. Which, I actually do like Joyce and parts of Ulysses, but I read it just to say I had read it.
@Nabonwe Were you my high school best friend? We were OBSESSED with the book, as were our dual US History and junior English teachers (it's the south). Now I can say, OK, I've evolved, but how in the hell did my TEACHERS still idolize that book? Agh!
@antarcticastartshere Michael Crichton, Robin Cook, all those crappy medical mysteries. At one point I wanted to be an epidemiologist, mostly because no one else knew what it was. I was insufferable!
(Aside: I'm about to start my PhD to be an epidemiologist, but not because it sounds cool.)
