    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: FFF : Meh, our guys wore tuxes and I wore flip flops.  I think people on here spend a lot of time giving shites about bridal footwear for no good reason.  Who gives a fluck?  Though, yes, Toms are super ugly.  I just don't act like it somehow invalidated the rest of someone's wedding to wear them.

    I don't think it invalidates the wedding. I just don't get why we're being AW'd a pic of them.

    [QUOTE]Why would you call your kid nerdy girl?
    Posted by chelseamb11[/QUOTE]

    <div>Because the first time I was talking about her, she was away at a camp for gifted kids which she (and all her intellectual badass buddies) refer to as 'Nerd Camp.' She is kind of nerdy, artsy, quirky and that's how we  like her. It's actually a term of endearment. </div><div>
    </div><div>ETA: And I don't just say 'my daughter' because I have two of them. One who is getting married in 29 effing days (DD) and then Nerdy Girl. Not even totally sure it was me who officially named her that. It may have been Poke or MUNI. </div><div>
    </div><div>And my sig is my family, which I will forever AW the shiiiiiit out of. So there. </div>

    I'm assuming Wally's thuper cute nickname for one of her children. I won't guess that it's actually a girl though because Ski posted a picture of her and the child she calls Pete the other day, and that child she calls Pete is a girl. Color me confused.

    And I'm assuming Repeat is her younger kid?  I think that's kind of.....I don't know, demeaning, I guess to call your younger kid repeat.

    Interestingly enough, at my house, Repeat is not my youngest sister, but the middle one. I guess because my dad started calling the youngest Pete first.

    Actually, that's not really that interesting, but whatever.

    Haha what?! It is not at all demeaning. Its just a phrase. Apparently not as widespread as I thought it was.

    This. Also, I am not bothered by nicknames. Wally has several daughters. It might get confusing to call each daughter, "daughter or DD." I guess it's just not that weird to me to use a nickname, though if I had a kid I might use just first initials, like Stacks does.

    Yeah, but then if you just bounce in and share stuff about yourself without contributing to the conversation, you get accused of not caring about anyone else but yourself.

    Eh, I think that just is when people make a pattern of it for all of a thread and stuff. I jump in all the time without reading the beginning of a night thread and usually reference myself first. Doesn't mean I'm not going to pay attention to everyone else for the rest of the thread afterward.

    Yup. But I don't watch SYTYCD (I hope I got that one right), Big Brother, or the Bachelor, so when those conversations happen I'm just twiddling my thumbs.

    But clearly it's my own hangup about having to join a conversation that's thousands of posts long.

  • I agree, no need to read an entire chat thread before jumping in. 

    This is from a while ago, but Rosie, I think it's strange that even if morning and night threads are similar in content, you like the morning ones better because people are at work. Who cares where people post from? It's all the same kind of conversation.

    This is why if the thread is insanely long, I read the last few pages, mostly just what is still relevant to the current conversation, so I can contribute to whatever people are currently talking about.
