commented on Scarlett Johansson Sues Novelist for Writing Her Into a Book
@16 Apparently I was also suffering a bad grammar day. I meant "within a novel", as in the author of the novel introduces the character within a novel using a reference to a celebrity. That is a bad practice. I dislike it in movies as well.
Discussions of the novel which include a comparison of characters to celebrities is different, and actually useful.
commented on Walmart Turns Workers Into Welfare Queens
I was opposed to Walmart for a long time thanks to the way it would open up in rural areas, undercut existing stores, then raise prices after eliminating all the competition.
After a certain point, I gave up, feeling like it was a lost cause (and recognizing I had no where else to shop.)
Well, goodbye Walmart and hello Amazon! At least FedEX and the Post office pay a living wage.

@7 & @8 I love both the threads in the fabric stores and the paints in the art store.
I've been thinking for a while that I should just paint myself a spot color test to hang on my wall and make me happy...
commented on SL Letter of the Day: Not A Prude... And Not Just Not That...
You know, as a bi woman who's had a few threesomes, friends with benefits, one night stands and experimented with a variety of fetish play, I've discovered that "prude" is the favorite first insult of assholes when I don't want to have sex with them.
Amusingly, they tend to follow up "prude" with "whore" and "slut".
Unfortunately for them, I don't find even the loveliest of assholes attractive unless they are connected with a pleasant personality, and it sounds like TGP shares my standards.
commented on SL Letters of the Day: Just Say No to DSGs
I've always found the tendency of DSGs to make out a bit silly, but basically inoffensive.
So, as a bi women attracted to fems have I ever hit on one afterwards and been disappointed?
No, because a) they were drunk and b) they appeared fairly taken at that moment. If they were passing the kisses around, I may enjoy my turn but I didn't expect anything to come out of it.
