Amen.
Ah! The killer shoes I could buy if I wasn't blind!

9876 I suppose it is a matter of attitude, of how you see yourself. I've looked awkward until I decided to look awesome instead.

9876 I look good. I am very shortsighted so I am forced to wear glasses all the time. I decided to make them an intersting part of my face, I have a few pairs in different styles that I match with either my mood or my outfit. It's fun.

9876 I think the official reason for the I-am-me-and-you-are-nobody-look is that models on the runway have to draw attention to the clothes they are wearing, kind of like human hangers. Personality is distracting.

9876 You know you are getting old when you have no clue what your niece refers to while talking about music. You know you ARE old when you listen to said music and think "gosh, this sucks. Nothing like the Queen"

9876 My ideal bedtime is 1.00 a.m., I've always been a night person, too bad I have a day job. I love the quiet time, nobody hassling me, no distractions, I can truly do what I like. On the other hand, I hate mornings.
9876 I met my attachement while visiting a girl I met online. Does it count?

9876 I have always had a soft spot for La nuit des temps and I recommand it all the time, I think it is The Ice People in English. Published in 1968, many sci-fi elements are not sci-fi anymore, it has now become an "anticipation" novel.

9876 I dress up for work meetings with important customers, for nice nights out with my boyfriend, for weddings or "official" occasions. The rest of the time it's mostly jeans, shirts and boots.

9876 WOW. That does look like... A LOT!
I used to love cinnamon doughnuts. I say "used to" because I had my last doughnut roughly 15 years ago.
How sad.

9876 I have a little spider living in the corner of my living room, his name is Ugo. We have an unspoken agreement: if his web stays within a reasonable size (I am the judge of that), I let him be and he can eat all the flies, mosquitoes and bugs he wants. We are both very happy. Now I guess I'll have to watch his size as well.

9876 My father never raised a finger on me, my mother used to spank me when I was out of control. I don't feel abused. Talking was the first option, taking away privileges was the second, spanking came in last. As a child I distinctly remember forcing myself NOT to listen to my mother even though I knew she was right. I remember opposing her for no reason. In these cases only a spanking would set me straight.

It is true what BunWat says: different kids respond to different things.
My niece is a little bitch, worse than I was. Talking doesn't work, she won't listen, spanking doesn't do anything, she just stares back and says "that didn't hurt one bit". What works with her is a good staring contest. One time we sat at a table and looked at each other for 4 hours, until she finally decided to give up. She was 8. Now she is 12 and she drives her mother crazy.

9876 Granted Olga is not in my top-ten for names, I don't mind it. It has class, it has history. It can hardly be shortened or modified which is definitely a plus for me. If carried with pride it is a name that can make you stand out. And I've heard much worse.
The problem is: if the mother doesn't like it, it doesn't matter who it belonged to, she shouldn't use it.

9876 When sitting I cross my legs with the ankle on the knee, like my father and I snort like him as well. Not very pretty for a lady.
9876 If I stuffed as much as an olive in my bra I'd look like I had 3 boobs. So sad.
9876 Don't you just love the way the word "God" comes up when you are expected to sheepishly accept whatever crap is happening to you? I've always found it fascinating. God must have a twisted sense of humor.

I wish (some) women would stop telling me "you don't have kids, you can't understand". Ok, listen: I have no children but this doesn't make me stupid. Let it go! I can formulate opinions/thoughts on subjects/situations I have no direct experience of. Really! It is called using a brain.
9876 I do like heels, they make my legs look miles long, which makes up for my total lack of boobs. As I get older I find it harder and harder to endure though, so I always keep a pair of flats in my bag.

I have come to the conclusion that shoes have an "expiration date": some shoes can last a whole day at my feet, others 4 hours, others 2, etc.. This is the criteria I use when choosing what to wear.

Argh! I wish I wasn't so keen on pretty things!

Black for winter, nude for summer. Even though I tend to agree that a black shoe is more wearable throughout the year.

An article about anti-choice laws."


For f**k's sake! Is this even legal? What about privacy, what about personal details? And a picture!?! This is the kind of extremism that should not be tolerated.
Does this moron really think that abortion is EASY for a woman, for any woman?
I suppose in his mind women are free to do as they are told. Such cold and cruel-hearted creatures can't be expected to decide for themselves, after all child-bearing is a public matter, not a private one. What is private is child-caring and all its costs. (!)
As I said earlier, I am a simpleton, I still can't grasp this concept which seems so obvious to governments/employers/extremists.

Why don't these people use their time and energy and resources to help out the existing children, to make a better life for them? Oh, wait... a life matters only if it is unborn or in vegetative state. :-/

9876 Thank you Phil, it is what I meant. You expressed it much better than I did.
I have nothing against religious people, of any religion, what I fear is the power concentrated in religious institutions that concern themselves more with politics than with the spirit. I fear the power battle over women's bodies that I see in several countries, including Europe and the U.S..
As an example, the law that regulates abortion in Italy has recently undergone restrictive modifications under the pressure of the Catholic Church. In many hospitals it is almost impossible to find a doctor who will perform an abortion (even for medical reasons, even if the law guarantees it) because being pro-life is a great incentive to one's career. In some pharmacies in Rome, accidentally close to the Vatican, there are no condoms for sale. I find this unacceptable.

Then I read things such as this:

and I can't help feeling a step closer to "The handmaid's tale".
