      @ExplorerSoul

      Best - A spontaneous trip to the beach with my Sibling!
      I'm crocheting again!

      Worst - Wendy's didn't have strawberries or apples today.
      I tried to parallel park but gave up because cars were coming.

      What about you?

      @ExplorerSoul

      Best:

      Super productive work day
      Great work team
      Sleep sleep sleep...

      Worst:

      Hard to get up- the cool temperatures and warm blankets in bed did not encourage me to jump out of bed this morning. In fact I took an extra few minutes to savor the cozy....

      Being hit with another random to do list by my son requiring trips to the store and disturbing my cooking plans and budget

      Difficulties with my aging mother...she's a feisty one! Had to take a step back last night for sanity and to draw boundaries. Will return but I don't stand for being talked down to as an adult in attempts to control. I'm just not a fighter, but she enjoys the good fight with anything and anyone.

      On overload from work. My job requires me to manage an abundance of information, herd cats, identify risk, computer program and do statistical analysis, and work with an infinite number of laws and processes...blows my mind some days!

      @ExplorerSoul I'm horrible at receiving compliments because I used to receive them so frequently as a child and I wasn't sure if people were being honest or complimenting me because my mom was a well-loved teacher at the same school. After awhile the compliments grew old, sometimes embarrassing especially when I was having incredible success...it brought jealousy out in others and made it hard to sort out who was genuine vs. who wanted to be my friend because they truly appreciated me for me and not my talents.

    If you had a Food Network show, what would you call it?

    If I had one, it would be called The Big Dip. Some would say I'm kind of a dipshit, but I love to dip foods, especially chips, into other things.

      Nothing.

      It's not perfect, that's not it. But I believe that things are as they are supposed to be, at any time. Including myself. Not to say I don't believe in self improvement, I do, but I don't think that is what you were asking, was it?

        @lauralee If my fifty-something self could speak to my 20- or 30-something self, I'd say take better care of yourself, get some exercise, floss regularly, etc. I'm not in terrible shape by any means, but I can see that some basic preventive maintenance would have gone a long way. The beautiful thing is it's almost never too late to start taking care of yourself!

      @ExplorerSoul habitually opening four social media websites and going through them every single time I open a webbrowser. I forget what I was gonna do, close the laptop, then 10 minutes later I've remembered so I get back on, then check all the social media again. I get bored with the laptop, and go to lie on the couch, where I check all my social media again.

      ... I definitely need to find something better to do with my time lol

    overheard some kids talking and the ever-present question in a young lady' mind is "how can I tell if ____ fancies me?" it was fun and nostalgic to overhear and recall that mindstate again

    but that's a fine random question how do you know if someone loves you or crushes on you, etc? and what is a good story from when you realized that so&so liked you, etc?

      @ahorrasi when I was younger, my mother told me that if a boy teased me or picked on me that meant that he fancied me. Mostly it was true back then. I wonder if the mean boss I have who yells at me likes me so that's why he picks on me. probably not!

      @ahorrasi when they like you their body language is leaned toward you, make a lot of eye contact and smile, laugh more, spend time with you, increased intimacy emotional and physical..

      As for love. hmm.. I suppose at 31 I look for how thoughtful they are.. Is it obvious that I, and my wellbeing matters to them? Are they invested? Do they make choices with me/us in mind?

      @ahorrasi

      It used to be easier to be able to tell. Now, sometimes, other people have to spell it out for me, which makes me laugh. When I can still pick up on the signals its because of body language, or level of attentiveness, etc. I am also not as proficient a flirt as I used to be, flirting with intent that is. I can still flirt generally, non sexually, ie, without intent, to beat the band. I guess it is another instance of what you don't use you lose. I haven't been dating much the last few years. A lil out of practice, I guess......

      I was out somewhere recently and it did occur to me that the man sitting next to me at the table was in a state of arousal/attraction/agitation because of my physical proximity. He was very attractive and I was flattered and probably would have flirted with intent were it not for the wedding band on his finger. If he'd been absent of that ring I think things would have progressed rather quickly as I fantasized all evening about straddling him. LOLOLOL (That might be TMI for some of you, but hey, we're all sexual beings, ain't we?)

      @ahorrasi pre-technology the signs were when someone would create and inside joke with you and find excuses to "bump into you." Today's signs? I really don't know.

    Do you notice that the reply button to a comment is in a weird place if there is another comment already?

    If you don't double-check it your comment gets sent to the wrong person instead like the other person who made a comment.
    I did it too when I first was figuring things out but I notice it still happens to other 43 Things users.

    It seems odd to use the reply button the way that it is set up.

    Anywho maybe this will help others if they hadn't already noticed it was an odd set-up!
    I think it's kinda confusing.

    Hope this makes sense if not I could probably post an example. 🙂

    Why do spiders love me?

    I swear in the past week or so I've had a few spiders find me & crawl up my leg.
    Yikes

    I may have had a black widow in my backyard too.
    Really grateful that he did not crawl up my leg.

      @jadedforever When I lived in the northeast, I loved spiders. As a young girl, I used to let them crawl around on my hands.
      Then I moved to California, and the spiders were very dangerous! Black widows, brown recluses, etc. I was so upset that my spider friends were no longer friends.
      Now I'm very glad to be back to the non-poisonous only spider region of the northeast.

      @jadedforever I've had the misfortune to have been bitten by a brown recluse on my leg when I was a teenager. It ate a hunk of flesh and left a hole an inch across.

      @Andia I know I couldn't. I tried one year. Lasted only a couple of months and started "playing" with the rules...Goodwill items are not new, they don't count. Grocery store purchases don't count so that planter purchased there doesn't count. Etc. I admire people who can do this.

      @ExplorerSoul I don't think so. I'm sure you mean nonfood items and non medicinal products.
      I buy many things secondhand when possible like clothing and books but some things are much better when purchased new. If I had only myself to consider, I could probably do it for a duration.

      @ExplorerSoul not counting groceries? easy, all it takes is for me to listen to my mother's voice in my head lol. Just today I had to fight that voice again while making a purchase, I still feel a bit guilty! I remember an ex-friend used to tell me "good job, Im proud of you" every time I bought something for myself, lol xD that totally helped though! im much better now ^^

      @ExplorerSoul many as in more than 20 ppl whom i would feel comfortable talking to if I saw them in the street and whose houses i've seen and who've seen my house and with whom social interactions of a sort have happened in the past 5 years? Sure.

      or do you mean more than 50? or more than 10? 100? And what is meant by 'friend'?

      it really depends on your definition. I don't consider myself a very social eprson at all but i have met people and you know make an effort or whatnot

      i feel like i am meeting a lot of new ppl lately and reconnecting with ppl from the past but not many seems to go beyond the 'hi there i see you again at this month's potluck how are ya see you again next month or whenever' phase

      at times i make an effort to move a thing beyond that (suggesting meeting or even planning something) but so far has not happened greatly

      @ExplorerSoul On the internet, yeah. :)

      I actually just posted a rant on PC about this. Basically, I've been thinking a lot about the people I used to be friends with and have since lost touch with, and realizing that I lost touch for a reason. And, because my life situation has sort of isolated me and because I don't need a large social circle to be happy, I just never made new friends. But online, through this and other sites, I've made fulfilling, lasting friendships; I have known my current best friend for nearly 20 years, and we talk almost daily despite the fact that he lives in a different state.

      Still, I'd love someone to go grab a bite with, you know?

You can type any date in plain English like in 3 weeks or next month.
You can also type in recurring due date like every day, every week and every month.
