Re: Are you related to any famous people?

No, but I have a string of Mardi Gras beads that Sean Astin/Mikey/Rudy/Samwise Gamgee threw at me from a balcony on Bourbon Street. I was strolling down Bourbon Street the Saturday before Mardi Gras a looooong time ago and looked up and recognized him and completely spazzed out. So people around me ...

Re: When do you seek medical attention?

No kidding. We just postponed hernia surgery for my 1yo (don't worry, all Drs have declared the hernia surgery to cosmetic and not required at this stage).. Anyway, we just postponed hernia surgery because if my husband and I switch around our insurance options come free enrollment time, we'll end u...

Re: Saturn moon has "ingredients for life"

I heard some discussion on the radio about the challenges of collecting and testing samples while preventing contamination of the foreign environment and samples with earth material -- it was very interesting.

Re: what was wrong with your ex-lover?

Also nothing wrong, just general and serious lack of compatibility. I think our initial attraction was based on an idealized theory of the other instead of reality. When reality kicked in, it was no bueno. Too similar in personality aspects in which we should've been complementing each other, too di...

Re: Bilingual Toddler

According to my friend the kids speak fluent Russian, but when I'm around they tend to speak in English to their dad's queries in Russian. At most they might use single-word Russian replies. Perhaps this is an observer effect. (Are they accounting for my status as an English-speaker?) I noticed thi...

Re: did your parents tell you stories?

Re: Girlfriend Zone

On the topic of friend zoning... do people actually not pick up on someone who really wants to be with them as more than a friend? I think sometimes, it takes a thief. Especially when you're younger and less jaded. If you tend to be straightforward in your approach to relationships (friendship or r...

Re: What do you like on your hot dog?

Potato sticks like hard chip-like hickory stick things? Hehe yup. I wasn't familiar with the Canadian version, so I had to google it, but yes. I find the crunch oddly satisfying. I have no idea how this came to be, but it's a thing in Puerto Rico. :D Gah. Now I want one of these. http://oi66.tinypi...
