I just won a scholarship to go to RubyConf in November. Hoping this won't be an issue.
I've actually been thinking a lot about developing a "uniform" ala Steve Jobs, but for a lady person. Right now all of my (8) tops and all of my (6) bottoms can mix and match, which is nice. All of these outfits are entirely too fussy/trendy/expensive for me, but would love good ideas for more basics. Business casual, minimal patterns, subdued palette.
@Mr. B - Would you prefer The City? I kid, I kid. Perhaps they just need a decent text expander.
@jolie - Are there any other moderators on the site that can get rid of the filth? Can "report" flags be added to user profiles, so other readers can flag, comments are held and moderators can release or deny? I'd hate to such a beautiful network brought down by hate.
Oh, LW1, I feel you. My MO is self-absorbed, bi-polar-but-won't-get-help, addicts that hide it well for the first 6 months or so. I have no interest in dating of those again. Since I was the common factor in all of the relationships, it just seemed like it was my fault, and I need to fix myself before dating again. How to do that, I have no clue.
@Kzinti - It's still available, they don't limit it just to BC. I worked with them at the beginning, and helped with their annual charity ride, Scooters 4 Hooters (I take no responsibility for the name). One of the big things that they did was provide those in need with advocates. The idea was to help them deal with all the paperwork and details, so that time could be spent with family and friends, not dealing with Medicaid. It's since expanded to providing free mammograms and such to high-risk individuals.
@Fizigig - My (much) younger roommate just asked my opinion on a co-worker that asked her out. A 20-year old guy with several children by several women. My response: "I don't date or have sex with people that can't figure out birth control."
LW2 - Therapy can be scary to people that don't know what's involved, what to expect, how difficult it's going to be. See if you can talk to him about why he's pushing back, whether it's truly a belief that it won't do any good, or if it's fear of pain.
