If you're confessing, so am I. I, too, have a crush on an older guy friend. His wife wouldn't like that. :-$

I confess, I'm embarrassed again. First dandy and now you? :-o ;)

What no one having a crush on the single older guy, not as risky as those married guys ? ;)

I am enjoying the "block user" feature.

Glad to be of service. If I had Danlike powers, I would add a block user button down by the report post one. I'm pretty open minded but I just can't tolerate some people. I'm sure they feel the same about me.

My brother's mother-in-law passed away last week. We just mailed a sympathy card to my brother and his evil wife but didn't but the return address on the envelope because we really don't care for them to know our address.

Kinda glad I am no longer a first responder - I know I could not handle that call to Sandy Hook Elementary School.

I thought I was the only one with a sister-in-law from hell. At least when my brother passed away she is no longer a relative.

[VerySerious]

Confession #1: That the "block user" feature could be a source of enjoyment to a normal person makes me so unhappy that if I had the ability to cry, I would cry.

Confession #2: I realize that "block user" is an important moderating tool for Moderators/Admins, but I'm saddened that the option is available for non-staff members. (Applies to all forums that have "block" - not just Cyburbia.)

Confession #3:: Writing the above two confessions was unbelievably difficult and took me over a month to do. I was raised in an environment where any show of vulnerability, ever, was corporally punished. Even having had much PTSD therapy, I still have great difficulty showing vulnerability in public.

I don't like threads like "who would you most like to meet" because someone always gets left out. (I'm not talking about me because OF COURSE everyone wants to meet me.) :p *le sigh*

Oh no, not at all. I thought I'd written about my sis-in-law before. I had to put up with being in the same room as her for five hours over the holiday party at my parents, the first time I've knowingly been on the same tract of land as her in three years. Sometimes I doubt the existence of a higher power because she's still alive and not in horrible pain in a remorte part of the world where they have never heard of morphine!

I think all the threads and posts about LP are ridiculously boring and have jumped the shark.

Hubby got me a nice chocolate covered strawberry edible arrangement for Valentine's day. I've only had 1 strawberry because of the nausea. Luckily he's out of town so he won't notice when I throw the rest out. :-$:(

The only regret I have about the job change/move that we began 18 months ago is that my wife has to work from home. It really doesn't suit her. And it hurts me inside. Even with all the other positives the move brought us. I think about apologizing to her from time to time, but it wouldn't help.

Some day my job seems like I am trying to drink from the fire hose and only getting a drop of water here an there. I look at my friends that are working as consultants or for the dark side and sometimes wonder what if...

I have that thought a lot... Unfortunately I think I would dislike working for most investors even more than I dislike being under the thumb of a City Council.

I forgot these were in the dresser drawer...

...a pair of arctic camo pattern string briefs. Actually, very comfortable. I promise not to post a picture.

Thank you for sparing our eyes however some might need some brain bleach to wash that image away. ;) :lmao:

Really? I could not get into any of the songs. I listened to the whole CD, and then returned it to the library without uploading any of the tracks.

When Hubby and I watch Game of Thrones I feel the need to yell out "boobs!" anytime nekkid boobies are shown on screen. :-$

I normally try not to give too much information, but let me go ahead and just admit that I never - like ever - get tired of nekkid boobies. Ever.

Nor do I tire of women yelling out when they see the boobies.

I own (on google-play) the "Modern Warfare" episode of Community (you know, the paintball one from season 1) and have watched it probably 50 times. I'm so lame, but I think it's so funny.

Only my father has my address. EVERYONE else in my family does not. And I shall be keeping it that way.

I'm not a big fan of the Inquisition threads. :-$

It seems they've turned into either/or questions or how silly can I be questions, or just really random stuff that I'm not sure why anyone would care about.

Whew!! Glad I got that off my chest. I won't mention it again.

I don't read them, or post in them, because I don't have time to read through all of the questions/answers....

I'll send potentially confrontational emails late on Friday afternoon so I don't have to deal with the consequence until Monday.
