When I'm 89 I'm sure I'll want a pill to make me 60 (or younger) too!

Evening all. Just got in. Played with the kids in the yard, but we really need to do dinner. Got the AC running to get the house cool since there is no breeze tonight.

Yep, that's what she's been saying for years, no surgery. If she'd had surgery on her knee years ago, she wouldn't be basically walking on her ankle bone now. Which I would think might have something to do with her back? But maybe not.

A person will adjust their gait to compensate for a cronic pain so it very well could affect their back over time.

edit// did I mention I used to be a Firefighter/EMT?

Are men allowed to wear Messenger Bags?

There something wrong with that? *glare*

Anyway, no. Messenger bags are practically made for the express reason of letting a man carry a purse without it being a purse.

I think it is fine, especially if said bag is toting a laptop. The guys on campus here wear them and none of them are obvious members of the GLBT community, not that it really matters what other people think. I would however avoid the neon pink and the purple with flowers ones.

"Over the course of the last few years, messenger bags have taken over, and not just with girls and women. Several boys and men were actually among the first to use messenger bags to help make their load lighter.

Whether you're a teen or a terminally hip adult; male or female, you're sure to appreciate the advantages that a good messenger bag has to offer"


Looks that way.

Don't be too hard on fen, sometimes he types stuff (especially to bypass the filter) and it comes out as weird or offensive, or just wrong. Fen really is a nice guy. Plus it's late where he is.

Well, there are only so many times people can ask you if you are simply delightful before it gets old. this looks cute Really though, the question is if my family will let me wear it, of if they will complain the whole time about me being embarrassing.

Still single, can't imagine why.

Yea, sorry. I didn't mean that in an offensive way. I'm sort of tired, but trying to stay up so I can sleep on the trip tomorrow, and my eating is off, etc. Combined with my normal lack of sense so...

If you're talking about the one you linked to, yes, your family will complain.

I like it! Orc's mixed on it. He kinda likes it, but he's undecided (of course he bought me a cavu purse and we used it as a diaper bag and he wore that - no one questions his sexual orientation though). He says he has seen some great anime themed messenger bags.

We are going to dragon-con and I felt I should have something for any swag and stuff I get. Gurren Lagan isn't my favorite anime, but I don't really have a favorite. The design on this one seems good and is on sale so I was thinking about it. A gintama one would be cool though.

bummer. . . .

Up here no one would think twice of you carrying that bag, down there. . . . you'd probably be fine at Dragoncon (HAVE A GREAT TIME *insert jealousy here*). Wearing it other places will be the snag for you.

Not really that much moreso than the rest of the country (with a few exceptions in either direction)...on the whole they tend to be more vocal & in-your-face about it, in my experience.

They also hate people who aren't white.

Okay, I'll buy that.
So, KtC, you don't think your sister will be able to raise the kids so that sexual preference doesn't matter?

Actually it wasn't just homophobia I was referring to, it's the culture down there, very closed minded, in a sad kinda way. It's very closed off and unwelcoming to change or outsiders. . .

I always like it when you talk to someone about something (like simply delightful marriage) and they bring up how they "have simply delightful friends" so they don't have anything against simply delightful people.

Sister-in-law. . . I don't know, honestly. My brother-in-law (Orc's bro) he gets some pretty restrictive ideas in his head and really has adapted to the stuff I was talking about. It's kinda odd, my sister-in-law, who is native South Carolinian, seems more open minded, but maybe that just because she remembers her own mistakes. . . .

If I was an African American, or an Asian, I would not live in the south. I would be afraid someone was going to kill me in the middle of the night.

That right there is very sad. My daughters both have best friends who are Asian. As in their parents are immigrants here. Ver1 talks weekly about taking a trip to Taiwan to visit friends. In their play they travel to Taiwan.

I'm not going to say it's safer here, we have our own eccentric extremist groups, but. . . .
