Feb 17 Gloria commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Can He Dump His Girlfriend Now?.
@29: I got out of an eight-year relationship in September. It was hard. We were living together. But it was so, so the right thing to do. I'm so very glad it finally happened.

If it was easy, fewer people would get to this point in their relationships.

Get started now.

@76: "Will he be excused from his responsibilities to earn the money required to support the family during that period? How do you recommend doing so?"

Dunno ... weekends? Evenings? Just guessing.
Jan 10 Gloria commented on SL Letter of the Day: Three Quickies.
A year and a dozen dates later? Is that just dates, as in meetings with a person, or dates, as in people you saw a few times?
Aug 29, 2014 Gloria commented on What Do You Think of President Obama's Khaki Suit?.
Khaki is fine ... but weird with a white shirt and a grey tie. I think it always looks better with a blue shirt, but of course, that's too casual. Would have done better with a mid or light grey for a business-like but still summery suit.
Jul 31, 2014 Gloria commented on The Art Made by Japanese Americans in Internment Camps.
@1: "Were there no voices in government or otherwise - these people's non-Japanese neighbors, friends, coworkers - screaming that this was senseless and wrong?"

Probably. In Canada, the government did the same thing, despite evidence from the RCMP and the Department of National Defense saying that the internment was unwarranted.

I've been planning to watch Ken Burns' documentary, The War. There's an episode focused on Japanese-American soldiers in particular. Some felt it was an opportunity to disprove the negative aspersions cast upon them; others resented their loyalty being questioned.

So basically they're legislating what many people here shame socially mothers for not doing?

It's such a weird tension ... shaming women for doing something entirely natural and fine (you're a disgusting deviant for exposing your boobs in public) and then shaming them also for not doing it because they can't or don't want to (you're a negligent mother who doesn't care about the health of her child). Is the best of both worlds co-oercing women into how they use their bodies, but you know, at home? Thanks.

(Formula-fed here. Not given the "best start possible." Might as well have been left in the woods, exposed to wolves.)

"Self-cleaning"? Like an oven?

You'll be missed, Megan :( I still remember reading that amazing story you wrote about Martha Stewart cookies. Best wishes!
Nov 20, 2013 Gloria commented on SL Letters of the Day: More On Gym Oglers.
While I totally get the feeling of "I wish people paid attention to me and found me attractive", I don't get why we have to convince other people that they should be grateful for attention.

If they really, really don't like being ogled or looked at or hit on, who cares? How does it make your life better? How does it make you feel better about being unattractive? It doesn't! You just want to crap on someone pretty so it makes you feel momentarily superior.

I know! Because I do that!
Nov 12, 2013 Gloria commented on Sacha Baron Cohen Kills at the Britannia Awards.
@13: I find Brydon inexplicably sexy. Him, David Mitchell, Alan Davies, and a toss-up between Jo Brand and that guy who isn't Angelina Jolie is pretty much my perfect QI line-up.
