Why put this all online instead of talking to my friends? I’ve always been the listener in my friend group, but when it comes to talking about my own life I tend to feel like I’m wasting their time. Plus, almost all of them are married now, and have children. They've long since left this stage of life in the dust.

Why one more year? Because dating is exhausting and I’m tired of the cycle of crushing to crushed and back again. Because if I continue waiting for the one, I’m afraid the rest of life will pass me by.

A little background about me – I’m in my early thirties and I’ve never been in love. Growing up I was always the shy, ugly girl that no guys paid attention to. However, I have had one boyfriend in the recent past. It was not a match made in heaven.

Here are the current key people:

The Ex – Twenty-five years my senior. Half of the time he is one of the most generous guys you’d ever meet. The other half, he’s an emotionally abusive, unapologetic a**hole. He’s a workaholic who hasn’t taken a day off in over a year. To complicate matters,  we still work together and are still friends.

The Brit – My current crush. He lives in England. I do not. He’s cute and has that oh-so-sexy accent. We frequent the same forum and belong to a group chat on Skype. We have a lot in common but he might have his eye on someone else.

Muscle Man – Met through a mutual friend. He really likes to work out. Me? Not so much. We used to go to school together but never had any of the same classes. Our mutual friend claims he’s interested, but he took three months to get in contact. Not sure we have much in common but I’m willing to get to know him.

      Guy who built a grift around submission to authority has issues with authority being used. Also, someone should remind him who appointed the FBI director. 

      It’s so interesting that everything in the Doug Phillips Cinematic Universe is fake except for the news coming out of Ukraine. 


      Rarely does Big Mama JB’s observation - “Point your finger at me and 3 are pointing back at you” - seem so apropos.

      I haven’t watched their video, but I have been to North Hollywood recently. My daughter was renting an apartment there and we stayed at an Airbnb. I didn’t feel unsafe there, but there was a certain rundown urban grittiness to the areas that I saw. I’m sure there are nicer parts of it that we just didn’t see when sticking to the main roads. If you’ve seen the show “Barry” it gives a really good feel of that area.

      You nailed it.  Glitzy it isn't.  Maybe that's why they do so many photos at the newer built and better maintained Glendale Galleria and Americana.  NoHo is about halfway between Glendale (who has the most efficient police force I've seen lately) and the church/seminary.  Glendale is rather image conscious.

      My family did the "no pork" thing for a while. There was a reason given, something about certain laws from the OT still being relevant into the NT for some reason, but not other laws. Why "no pork" was one of these laws, I don't know. I wasn't paying too much attention. But I did discover my love for turkey bacon during these trying times. I actually prefer turkey bacon to regular pork bacon. And it's true that pork has its own set of problems related to human health and such (same as beef and other red meat though tbh). But as for religious stuff, idk. My family went back to eating normal bacon btw, that phase didn't last long. 😅

      Two of my SILs come from Jewish families.  Neither family is very observant and you won't be prying their ham, sausage, and bacon away from them anytime soon.   I think the kosher kitchen (two of almost everything) and the pork prohibition are among the first things to go.  One grandpa was observant and insisted on following almost all "the rules."  As soon as he passed, less and less has been followed beginning with the kosher rules.  Cheeseburgers all around these days although they still want kosher hot dogs.  That one is a taste thing.

      There was a baby shower for Abbie today, and look who showed up, besides the usual suspects: Lauren! (Screenshot from Esther Bates public instagram stories). There's also a photo of Jill and Abbie, posted by Jill. So she was there as well, although not dressed in blue. 


      I actually think Abbie looks super cute. Even better in the photo with Jill in the Jill thread. Esther looks fine. But IMO, the other dresses come off as dowdy, which is a shame because the women are all young and pretty. Lauren is so so tiny, that dress swallows her.


      ETA Did anyone spot Anna at the shower?
