I'd like to watch it, but I don't have cable. I'll have to wait until it is available on one of the services I subscribe to.

I dunno. As someone with several mental health disorders, I've never felt I was "crazy". Nor have I felt that "crazy" meant me. I mean, I've always been very aware of my mental health issues, and try to be aware when they are influencing me, and apologize and explain afterwards. I function. I'm upfront about it. I work on myself. In my experience, people who act "crazy" are undiagnosed and in denial about it.

@40 So-called Claire: I don't know that I follow. I'm trying though.

Can you explain?

The only problem I really have with this commercial is they put a good-looking man in a hot dress and expected us to laugh at him. I mean seriously, did you see those legs? Rawr.

I guess I also found it kinda weird that he ate a snickers bar and changed from a strong, assertive personality to a passive, simpering flake. I think I'm gonna stay away from those things.

Dan, I agreed with you completely until I realized you weren't talking about the "Council of Elrond" scene. How was is that all those men in the room knew who Elrond was, but not the one woman? A woman working for NASA, surrounded by scientists and geeks and nerds who have all read or at least watched the Lord of the Rings, and somehow she has never even watched the movies. Completely "old boys club", with a dig on why girls don't belong.

The clicking of the pen didn't even register for me.

The smell isn't so bad if you switch to a cup instead of tampons or pads.

But although I don't find my period gross, I do find period sex requires more time in both foreplay and cleanup. It's fine if we make time for it.

@8 and @10, My experiences with Plan B were decidedly unpleasant: two-three days of cramping, mood-swings and nausea like the worst PMS ever experienced, followed by crazy irregular periods for several months.

Of course, hormonal birth-control has always been unpleasant for me, so possibly I'm unusually sensitive for some reason. Certainly the side effects of Plan B were better than getting pregnant. Possibly they were better than dealing with the side effects of being on birth control in the first place? In the end, the experience made me opt for an IUD which has been awesome.

Bronars's article is wrenching. Something is so very wrong in Ferguson and across the nation, and I have no idea what can be done to improve things.

nocutename, I think the mentorship idea isn't a bad one, especially if the LW is bored enough that he doesn't want even a FWB arrangement anymore.

However, I don't think there is any harm in the gentle honesty Dan recommended. I wouldn't suggest calling the kid "boring"; honest or not that's just cruel. However, "I like the blowjobs, but I need us to became the "friends" part of this friends with benefits arrangement if we want to continue" is gentle, friendly, and honest.

If the 18-year-old wants to say something horrible after that, I think the LW will be able to handle it.
Feb 10, 2015 wingedkat commented on How I Discovered Cat Crack: Friskies Surfin' & Turfin' Favorites.
I had a similar experience. While unemployed, I ran out of money and switched away from my pretty good cat food to the cheapest Friskies kind.

End result was that despite controlled feedings at set times one of my cats gained 3-4 lbs (a lot on a 13 lb cat!) and the other somehow became perpetually, uncomfortably, disturbingly horny. Despite being fixed, he was going after everything: pillows, slippers, the dog, the other cat.

At that point I realized there was something wrong with the food, downgraded my ramen, and went back to the pricy stuff for the cats. The horny cat chilled out after a few days, thankfully. The fat cat remained fat (it took years to get off him!) but at least his appetite went back to normal and he stopped gaining weight.
