    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: FFF : Yesss. Midge, the point is not necessarily you being a Disney superfan. It's your habit of trying to make other people also become superfans (Disney, Reds, etc.). It seems like once you decide something is the right way to do it, there's no stopping you, even if thirty people tell you it's wrong.

    This must be the disconnect between RL and TK. I obviously can't convince any of you that I don't do that in RL but clearly I've presented it that way on here and I'll work on that. I really don't force my hobbies on other people. What could I possibly gain from that?

    I was absurdly tan in college. I think I went on a daily basis. The guys in my dorm prank called me and claimed to be Hollywood Tans, saying I was tanning too much and they were cutting me off due to skin cancer concerns. As if Hollywood Tans actually gives a flying fuuuck about that. I went yesterday for the first time in years and my body was clearly all "Nope, we're not doing this."

    All of my flames have been mentioned, so S/O tanning, Neutrogena makes an awesome spray on one that is gradual and water resistant. I highly recommend it.

    Just so we're clear, FI is not a jerk. He has personal issues that he's getting help with. I'm trusting him to work out what he needs to work out. And I haven't portrayed him well, because I tend to only vent about the bad stuff (which I think I've mostly stopped doing) and not gush about the good things, but there are a lot of good things.

    Rosie, no, I passed out. Which I deserved.. I was being vain and I was trying to even out tanlines for the bridesmaids dress I'm wearing tomorrow. It wasn't worth it.

    Oh, and the waiting to apply for jobs is because that was the "deadline" I gave the mom I currently work for, or was working for, to find a new job. (I didn't phrase it that way to her, obviously.) I really don't want to leave that family because I love those kids, but I figured out when my checking account was going to run out and when I'd need to start looking. Which is right about now. I didn't have time to interview this week, so that's why I'm starting on Sunday. I was waiting on purpose because she had a few really promising interviews.

    ETA - I removed the ticker a few months ago because there was a point where I really wasn't sure what was going to happen and it made me sad to look at it.

    Is he going to work out those issues before you get married? Or are you going along with the wedding under the assumption he'll eventually change?

    I'm legitimately not trying to pick on you. I'm not flaming you for this. I want you to be happy, and I think divorce has to be one of the worst things to go through in life. I would hate for things to not work out and have you look back and think you should have made a different decision.

    [QUOTE]Midge, did you find out once you got to the party, or did you know before you left the house? You could have stopped and gotten another bag. On one hand, I think dictating what kind of gift people are allowed to give your kid is douchey. On the other hand, I have a problem (rational or not) with all the Disney princess crap. I think little girls are being raised to think they deserve to be treated like a princess by the entire world. There's a mentality that goes along with it that suggests a girl is nothing without a strong, rich man rescuing her from the doldrums of her ordinary life. I'm not saying I'm right--I'm just saying I don't like the stuff.

I hate it when women will post things on their FB that say, to effect "I'm a Queen/Princess and I deserve to be treated like one." and then their parents "like" it, along with 50 other people. This is often after they have been caught cheating, or being innapropriate with another guy, and their excuse is always that they weren't being "treated right". Poor thing. *sarcasm*</div>
