@Mindful Riot: What do statisticians do? What's your day-to-day like?
@Samantha: I also love doing some things (like photography) that, when somebody's paying me to do them, I start to hate, because it's so high pressure. Don't Do What You Love For Money If It Ruins The Thing You Love.
@Julie: I do this, but I alternate between flats and heels based on how long today's pants happen to be. Basing my entire wardrobe around only black pants was the best wardrobe decision I could have made.
@nnlsbin: You could also just put it on, say, 2 accent nails instead of using it for a complete manicure, especially if it's expensive. Does your left pinky still match the right ring finger? Yes? Great!
@Thursty: I agree that the message should be "Don't Rape" rather than "Don't Get Raped," but until that's the case, here's a tool for women that doesn't tell them to change the way they dress or where they go or what they do (or otherwise suggest that they give up something they like to do in order to avoid being attacked). All it does is offer a simple, discreet way of testing their drink should they want to, and they don't have to carry around a special glass or testing strip or anything. It's stuck to their nail, it goes where they do, it fits into their life exactly as they're already living it. That's a valuable option.
Meaghan you work SO HARD to give her the benefit ouf the doubt, but I didn't read that as a failed joke at all. I'm just seeing, "Dude, what the fuck?"
@Aconite: My bestie worked in a bookstore when Deathly Hallows came out. She worked the midnight release party (which lasted several hours, + cleanup) then went home and READ THE WHOLE BOOK before showing up at 8am to open the store the next morning. She just *knew* that somebody would spoil something for her if she didn't. Like your friend.
@Meaghan O'Connell: I'll take the heat. I'm just a potato on the internet.
So if you can't afford to travel to an out-of-state wedding, are you still supposed to send a gift? Is it still supposed to be the value of 2 heads, if you and the boyfriend they've never met were both invited? And they have really expensive taste?
@garli: Any pet owner should have a friend like that.
