Do you have any certain bands or music that you especially like listening to at this time of year? If so, can you share an example (or two?)
Have any of you seen Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood? Do you feel like part of your childhood has been hijacked? My son likes this show and I'm still trying to get over that it is animated and just...not Mr. Rogers.
If you have ever had a baby, did you nest? What all did you do and how close were you to your due date?
i was driving home from visiting my folks in canberra and i was about an hour out of newcastle on the freeway and a cop stopped me and told me my registration had been cancelled because of an unpaid parking ticket. he told me i had to stop where i was. this was at 6:15pm on sunday night. i called my parents in canberra freaking out and they called my aunt in newcastle who said she would come pick me up, but then my phone died. the sun went down and my aunt couldn't find me, at 11:30pm i started trying to flag down cars and finally one stopped and a lovely couple got out, let me call my parents who called my aunt and the couple drove me home and my aunt met us there. worst night ever :(
everyone keeps saying it was unsafe for the cop to leave me where he did, that he should have escorted me to a servo or at least a lit area or somewhere there was a phone or a light or SOMETHING. they want to report him or make a complaint or something.
is there any way we can find him? find out who he was or anything? this was in nSw.
(okay so maybe not worst night ever but it was pretty scary!)
So I am pregnant and having really bad morning sickness. :P Much worse than my first pregnancy.
Will you fellow moms share some First Trimester Woes you had? Misery loves company.
If you have never been pregnant, will you post something cute or funny to cheer me up? Or, ya know, tell me to suck it up and get over it.
Are you pro-choice or pro-life? This post is open to all points of view.
A friend tells you quite matter-of-factly that: "[in heterosexual relationships,] men are biologically hard-wired to want sex more than women want sex." How would you respond to him/her?
TQC, I live in a townhome and my next door neighbors smoke a lot of pot out on their patio. Like, a lot. As in whenever they are home, in the evenings and pretty much all day on the weekend, someone is on the patio smoking a joint. My patio is separated from theirs by a just a few inches of fence, so if I have my sliding door open (as I often do when I'm home), my whole house smells like pot and I can't sit in my living room without inhaling pot smoke. It also makes my roommate's bedroom stink, since her windows are directly over the patio. While I don't care what other people do in their own home, I don't smoke and I don't appreciate my house smelling like pot all the time or having to choose between a contact high and opening my windows. Am I justified in saying something to them? How should I approach this? Should I just write them a thank you note for the free high? I wouldn't be so bothered if it wasn't CONSTANT.
Do your neighbors do anything that really annoys you?
A question about tact--
two of my friends eloped to Vegas and are getting married-- it'll be airing live via a webcam in a few hours. Another of my friends, who knows these two friends and was excited to hear they were eloping, just told me she's getting a divorce-- this is something she's been deliberating for a while, she just decided for sure last night. My question is-- should I tell her she can watch my friends get married? Or should I not? I don't want to come off as insensitive, but I also know she would be happy for them and maybe would enjoy watching it. This is a tough one!
ETA: Told her and we watched it together. It was very fun!
Do you like watching Hockey?
What's your favorite team?
