That ambivalent feeling when there is no one for whom you need to manscape, but you know that it will take a weed whacker to deal with it if you don't get to it soon.
White privilege doesn't mean your life isn't hard. It means your skin colour isn't making it harder.

What goes on in a woman's uterus is none of your fucking business.

Equal rights for others does not mean less rights for you. It's not pie.

So, why is it that on Pointless, or the Chase, or any BriTV quiz show when the host asks the contestant to "tell us about yourself" the dweebs all commence their speech with "Soooo...."?

E.G. "So, I'm a librarian and I enjoy sexing chickens"

or

"So, for twenty years I was a bling-warbler on Murgle Side"

Is it a verbal pointer indicating that they are likely to END every storyette with "so..." in order to launch into their next thought without pause, breath or a chance for the listener to say a word?

People literally use the word "So" to begin a sentence much too often.

I got one of those calls from a number I did not recognize so I did not answer it. I was left a message from a robot I would guess, stating that if I did not return the call an arrest warrant would be issued. Bored silly by too much free time, I called the number. A male, speaking thick, heavily accented English stated that he was "Jack Anderson" with the social security administration. I told him that was some cold he had, that it made him sound like he was calling from India. We were disconnected. I called back, this time playing a distressed woman from the south who had 8 kids and was fearful that if she went to jail them kids would starve. We got disconnected. I called back and said that my name is Cklem Woozehoffer. I was asked to spell the name. C-K-L-E-M W-O-O-Z-H-O-F-F-E-R. I went on adamantly that the K in Cklem was silent. We were disconnected. Them Indian bamboozlers are becoming more wilier.

Consider this —
You can tell someone, "Have a nice day," and no one thinks anything about it.
But you can't say, "Enjoy the next 24 hours!" without it sounding vaguely threatening.

Yes, I suppose I could agree with you ... but then we'd both be wrong, wouldn't we?

That's similar to stepping into a sparsely occupied elevator and saying, "nice day for a murder, heh?"

I know. I mentioned to husband that we might need to vote democratic. He was in grumpy agreement. Family will think us liberals. The holidays ought to be fun.

Voting against Trump and for the Dem doesn’t make you a liberal, it makes you sane, rational, and someone who cares about our country.

If LJ did it, so can you.

I did it last time and will do it again. It's all the arguments I put up against the Trumpanzee posts that earn me the Liberal with a small gold star. I tell 'em this Republican is not going to vote for a RINO like Trump and, if the party keeps him as nominee, then it's Biden. This is rather controversial for my more reptilian "friends"

Indeed; as I see it, for republicans who vote against Trump, it can be seen as a vote to bring back some sanity to the party, rather than let Trump and his sycophants control it.

The steaks are marinading, the potatoes are roasting, the peas await their face-to-face with boiling water . . . I sip on my Jack Daniels and contemplate the Ernie Els 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon breathing its last over there on the shelf with the two glasses waiting thirstily. 23 minutes until dinner - watching Pointless, then The Middle or Big Bang Theory until 9:15 when Spurs play West Ham. That should spoil a pleasant evening.

That's quite prosey, in a Hemingway In Our Time kind of way.
