"As the World Burns," Parts I and II. Am I the only one who read this and thought, "Perfect Simpsons episode title"? (Yes, probably.)
Plot - C. Montgomery tries to take over the world? Or something with a love affair to emphasize the soap opera pun? Either way, I fear any attempt to top the "Who Shot?" cliffhanger would be futile.
Sorry. When it's Sunday morning and the coffee hasn't kicked in yet, my brain does weird things.

@8 - No, no, no. The unicorns made it onto the ark, but there was an unfortunate incident when Noah failed to confine the carnivores to C deck.
Don't you read The Far Side?

"Quiver full" of kids? The Romneys had five kids in eleven years and then quit! Ann was only 32 when she had her last! God, what a couple of hypocritical wimps.
(If there were fertility issues, they should have adopted. There are plenty of stray arrows strewn higgledy-piggledy about the landscape. I can't believe God didn't call on the Romneys to grab a whole bunch and stuff 'em in their quiver with the others.)
The Duggars, now those are the real champs. Nineteen kids in 20 years, most recent at maternal age 43. Suck it Mitt and Ann.
And that family on Call the Midwife last week? Only eight kids, the family's in a rat-infested two-room flat, and they get all desperate and go to some back-alley abortionist. Definitely wimps.

Why destroy the computer? Just take out the hard drive, open it up, and pull out the shiny round disk. Then drill some holes in it, maybe scrub it with a wire brush, then pound it into pieces between a hammer and the concrete floor of your garage. Triple check the house for CD, DVD, or flash drive backups, and do the same with any you find.

Be careful CRUSH. If your friend/coworker doesn't know you're gay, there's a good chance she just sees you as a great friend that she can be really close and at ease with.
I've been on the other side of this problem with a couple of guys over the years. I'm on the shy side, so I can be awkward around men I'm attracted to, and perfectly at ease with men I like but am in no way attracted to.
When the romantic/sexual element isn't in the picture for me in any way, shape, or form, I can just be my unawkward friendly self. Trouble is, this is very easily mistaken for flirtation by someone who is attracted to me.
Dan's advice is perfect. But I'd add this: If she says she's not interested, believe her the first time. If after your disclosure the friendship continues exactly where it had been (after a period of awkwardness or not), it will be way too easy for you to convince yourself that she does like you after all. If you keep pushing it, it will creep her out. Not because she's a straight girl being pursued by a woman, but because not taking no for an answer is creepy coming from anyone.
I'm wishing you good luck though. I've been on your end of crushes that turn out to be unrequited, and it's painful. Especially if it's someone you have to see every day at work.
