Is it still summer weather where you live?

written () ago

We were still running air conditioning a couple days ago. Today is finally nice and mild. Is your weather weird this year, or usual?

I finally got the job offer!

Please cheer and congratulate me - I need as much support as I can get; I'm going to be a middle school science and history assistant teacher.

My family doesn't want me to work.

Should I take the job anyway? One individual is trying to sabotage my efforts. The kids just don't like change, and that's perfectly fine, they'll adapt. The other adults in the household are the problem.

Anyone know how to cook a goat leg?

I know how, but I only know how with spice, and my husband has requested I cut back on the chilis. Anyone have a recipe that is tasty without being spicy?

So many things!

I just needed someone to believe in me and now everything is going great, too well even, I don't know what to do.

My manager admitted to me yesterday that she looked at my social media and I donโ€™t know how I feel about it.

If you put it on the internet, it isn't spying, it's public.

Maybe she wants to be your friend.

Are people inherently good or evil?

Inherently good, though selfish. We learn to be both better good, and also evil.

An infant is innocent, like an animal. He knows only his own need to survive, not malice nor compassion.

Our life experiences teach us to care about others, but they also teach us how to use others to our own gain.

i hate humanity

Humans are the best and the worst of creatures. Recognizing the evil is only the start. After that you have to find the good, and if you can't find it you have to create it.

My oldest turned 18 recently.

Can you find some work for her to do, that you pay her for at a reasonable rate, then take her shopping for clothing or other necessities?

(Mow lawn, clean roof gutters, painting....)

It sure is a scary time!

I'd like to know if any guys here have ever had their lives ruined by a false accusation of ****rape or sexual assault or harassment.

I'm guessing no.

And how many women here have been *****raped or sexually assaulted or harassed? I'm guessing more than half, possibly up to all.

So to me, the concern about false accusations seems unfounded.

It seems to me that until men and women can treat each other as individual people, not as objects to conquest or to ridicule, we're going to have more of the same. How about all women hating men just avoid women, and all man hating women avoid men? Or better yet, women hating men can treat women like men and man hating women can treat men like women.

Should I have an extramarital affair?

After a few cancellations, we finally had lunch. Help! I'm in loooovvveee! It's completely stupid and I hate it.

He likes me in that way too, and that makes it so much worse. I don't want to lose my only IRL friend due to stupid infatuation, but that's what's going to happen.

Who the heck eats goat legs is what I was wondering. I can't even get my wife to cook lamb chops.

Sam's club was out of lamb so I went looking for some at the international market and saw goat, hadn't had it in a while. You should get some. Prepared right with plenty of chilis, it's delicious.

I finally got the job offer!

Aside from my hair being brown/grey, I'm kind of going for a Ms Frizzle vibe.

It's the other teachers who will have crushes, not the kids.

I have a plan, not just a bunch of ideas - yay me!
