Hmm. Speaking as a stylist, clipping fingernails in a salon isn't exactly all that bad, considering a lot of salons have manicure stations. Maybe not so much in the front of the house, though - go to the breakroom or the color area/back area if there is no manicure station. Toenails on the other hand - if you aren't getting a pedicure, you need to keep your feet in your shoes. Ew.

Well, I scored a 5. I am not an addict. But a 6 is considered an addict. So, almost.
What got me was the questions about renting/watching porn in general and *online dating* was an indicator that you may be an addict? What sort of bullshit is that?

commented on "I Wish My Mother Had Aborted Me"
I'm not going to lie, I was a very wanted baby. But i also wonder too, had i been aborted, would my mother's life been better?
From what i have been told, i was the only one of my mother's 3 living birthed children she planned. (I had a brother born stillborn) My my half sister (and stillborn brother) - were from a previous marriage. Neither of them were planned. She met my dad - and they wanted to have a baby together, though maybe not be married - it was the 70's, though, and they did get married 6 months after my birth.
My father, at first from what i have been told by family members other than my mother, wasn't a monster, but he quickly turned to drugs and booze after my birth. As long as I've known him, he's been a misogynistic asshole who thought he was "king'. I can't think he only thought that way just because of the drugs and booze, but he's been that way since he's become sober, as well.
He was horrible. Mean. Domineering. Controlling. And stupid as the day is long. (and still is)
I often wonder, if my mother hadn't been straddled down with a newborn infant, would she have left? She was no saint of a mother, either, mind you, but would it have been better for her not to have me? i know she stayed with my dad for *years* after she should have "for the sake of the children", and when my younger sister came along, unexpected though my mother was on the pill, that *really* cemented it.
There is a part of me that wishes she'd aborted me. Not just for her sake, but for mine too. I could have been the product of someone else - like my awesome stepdad, while being an extreme conservative, is a great person and loving father. She and my older sister could have had many more loving years - and selfishly, I could have had them too as someone else's child.
