I just got an email saying to bring a small handheld object that represents my summer, and be prepared to talk about it with a group.

It's good we don't have anything important to do to get ready...

I agree with the pp that a lot of people don't have the cooking skills for "healthy" foods. I also want to add that they may also lack the time (say, if you're scrambling between 3 minimum-wage jobs...

I am right there with you: last year was horrible! I burst into tears of relief on my way home after the last teacher work day, and I spent the next week unable to get off my couch. This summer has...

I went to London and Scotland for a week and a half last summer by myself. It was a great trip, but maybe the best part was figuring out that I can travel internationally by myself and have a really...

Like others, I've learned that lesson and don't even bother dragging it home anymore. I'd just have to drag it back undone--after wasting my whole break feeling guilty about it!

Jeez, thank YOU for YOUR commitment! Bargaining team--which I'm assuming is the same as your negotiating committee--is one role I would never take on!

Thank you all SO much! I don't know why I'm freaking out about this so badly. :rolleyes:

I'm #337 on the library wait list! But they've got 200 copies, so my estimated wait time is 3 weeks.

Thank you!! That's the gist of most of my 47 deleted attempts. I really need to stop obsessing and just send something in. Maybe I'll cram the phrase "in a post-Janus world" in there a couple of...

Union people--candidate statement?

I've agreed to run for my union's executive board, and have to write a "statement supporting my candidacy." What do you say in something like that? There's a separate place on the form for...

I walk everywhere, including places that others tend not to define as "walking distance," so when I saw the subject line I was pretty sure I'd say yes.

But nope. That's a hard pass from me....

When I lived in NY we always had it off, but not on the West Coast where I live now. As others have said, I'm ok with not having a genocide celebration.

Thanks all. That's what I thought, but this group (both generations of them) has me second-guessing everything!

Also, re snacks, they generally say you only need to eat if you'll be working out for more than an hour and a half. Some people can finish a half marathon in that time. I am not one of them, but...

I've never tried leukotape, but my favorite thing for blisters/rubbing/chafing is liquid bandage. It comes in a little bottle near the band aids in the store, and you paint it on like nail polish,...

Thanks, Gromit! I've lurked a bit, but haven't posted much in awhile.

Gresham Barlow has already called a 2-hour delay... This doesn't affect me, but it's a hopeful sign.
