I'm not a brand-loyal person at all. For almost everything, I'll buy whatever brand is on sale. This is me up to and including mayo. Though coming from a small town that only has one supermarket for 10 miles in any direction, I have... [more]

Yeah to me there are two main issues 1. Be reliable. This means being on time, doing what you say, clearly communicating if you can't do those things, and, as much as possible, not making your own issues (whatever those may be, impatience... [more]

What helps me sometimes is perspective. I am in a satisfying romantic relationship and I have a decent social group and I like where I live and like what I do for work. And when I tell people I get lonely they are usually pretty much like "What?... [more]

Yay a roast post! I've seen most of the CC roasts and Jim and I have been poking around at some of the older Dean Martin era stuff. The CC Roasts are so weird because of the odd assortment of people who are "chosen" to show up there. Like... [more]
