They are ruining marriage, by setting the bar WAY too high. 

Perfect couple is perfect.

Perfectly perfect perfection.

They are cute. I love NPH. I’m glad he didn’t go the way of other child actors. His career is actually better than ever.

someone help me

Let’s get something straight here. I, personally, was on Tumblr way before either of my kids were. One of them ended up as my follower, and I was invited to follow her. And the other one keeps hers private. And I respect that. Moms are not always intrusive. I am sorry if yours is, though.

I’m also not an Intrusive mom and I also had a tumblr before the kiddo and we also have a good relationship. It happens.

This is my favourite bookstore and bookseller in the world. Bar none.
I used to get to Seattle every six months or so, and whenever I visited I always made it a priority to stop in BLMF and ask its keeper what he’d been reading lately. He possessed an inexhaustible memory, a comfortable lack of snobbery, and impeccable taste. The first book he recommended to me, upon listening gravely to my litany of at-the-moment authors (Barbara Kingsolver, James Clavell, Maeve Binchy, Neil Gaiman, Charles DeLint, Anthony Bourdain) was Tipping the Velvet. He also later landed me with Geek Love, Anno Dracula, half the Aubreyad, and more modern Literature-with-a-capital-L than I could carry home.
The next-to-last time I dropped in, I asked if he had any P. G. Wodehouse.
"I have zero Wodehouse," he said, "and here’s why…"
Turned out that some fiend had taken to creeping in every month or so expressly to inquire of any Wodehouse and, once led to the volumes, to buy it all. ALL. Didn’t matter the condition, the edition, or whether he had another just like it in his possession; the villain bought every single P. G. Wodehouse in stock, every single time.
Was he a fan more comprehensive, more truly fanatical than any other I’d heard of, let alone known? Was he virulently anti-Wodehouse, only purchasing the books to keep their wry poison from infecting the impressionable masses? The world may never know.
I didn’t get any Wodehouse then, and I didn’t really feel the lack. I found plenty of other treasures that trip. But here’s one reason why BLMF and its proprietor are my favourite of their kind: that was two years ago, you see. Maybe three. In all that interim, I never planted foot in that bookshop. Never called. Never wrote. And I’m one face out of hundreds of thousands, dear reader; one reader he saw twice a year for three years, then not again for another three.
But I walked in the shop last Friday. Nodded hello.
"Can I help you find anything?" he asked, lifting his head from the phone.
"No, I’m good," I said.
"Wait—hold on a second." He set the phone down, walked ‘round the towers of books balanced precariously on the desk, on the floor, and atop other, only slightly less precarious towers. He jerked his head conspiratorially toward the far end of the shop, led me carefully to a shelf way in the back, removed a tattered stack of mass market paperbacks and motioned me closer to see what they’d been hiding.
Fifteen pristine Wodehouses: crisp, heavy, and—
“Hardcover,” he said, and waggled his eyebrows.
Reader, I bought them all.


Awwwww. This gave me all kinds of fuzzies.

i think we all know this one person…

i have a few friends who tend to say these things, and it makes me think, if they’re so skinny and somehow “see” themselves as fat, what do they see when they look at me? how disgusting do they think I am? because I actually am fat, It’s not just me feeling my thighs are huge, they are huge, for real, 

^^^ this^^^

My friend C is like this and she is tiny as anything and its just like… UGH.

Sometimes these people have BDD. My daughter has it. She never talks about how she feels about her looks anymore bc her friends think she’s being an asshole or looking for compliments. She’s not. She’s suffering. Some food for thought

I think thats what C has, as she never calls others out for being fat or ever mocks people for their size.. Shes often asking where I get *my* clothes from and what not.. (Sometimes disappointed the dresses I get are only available in plus size) 

I give her a pass, but its still frustrating to HEAR and sometimes you need to release the feeling. 

I understand. It’s frustrating for me too. She is straight sized and when I was her age I struggled with my weight. Just try to remember that it’s the BDD that makes her say these things. And don’t get into an argument with her like, “oh you’re not blah blah”. Just tell her “well, that’s your opinion…” And then redirect the discussion.
