With apologies to the menfolk, but does anyone else have pain in their thighs and hips during Midol week? I mean like bent over shuffling like an old woman pain? I've never had this before and it's insane.
What do YOU think about Angelina cutting off her boobies to prevent possible cancer in her future? If you had the money for the genetic testing and your results were the same...would YOU have cut off YOUR boobies?
As I was reading it I was thinking about how I measure and define personal success and I have to say that I consider being successful being able to do whatever you WANT to do versus doing what you NEED to do in order to have a comfortable life. Like...if you enjoy your job...no matter how much it pays, and you're comfortable...you're successful. In MY opinion.
"Being a female boss is a classic catch-22. In order for women to succeed, they have to be different, extraordinary, and not too emotional. But in order for them to be respected by their female employees, it seems these women also need to be relatable, likable, and "just like everyone else." When they're not, there's major backlash. Just look at Marisa Mayer, who has been widely criticized for her decision to ban telecommuting, a decision she made in order to benefit the company -- in other words, in order to do the job she was hired to do."
I bought one of these a while ago from Target and it's pretty darn awesome. All of the essential things you keep in your purse fit in it and when you want to change bags you just pull it out and plop it into another bag. I'd seen something like this before and considered buying it but couldn't wrap my brain around the price so finding this one for $14.99 made me feel all awesome-bargain-shoppery. GO ME!
Shelly Bean liked it so much she got one too! It has all kinds of compartments inside and it's really kept my bag pretty organized. ESPECIALLY when traveling.
Do you have any men you talk to on a regular basis like a good friend or a relative?
Does their logic ever make you wonder if something is wrong witih them?
Like...they tell you some crazy ish like they broke up with their girlfriend and then had sans ropas with her and now they don't know why their EX-girlfriend is tripping thinking they are going to get back together just because they had sans ropas together?
DOES THAT KIND OF LOGIC MAKE YOU WANT TO RIP THEIR EARS OFF??????????????????????????????????????????????
PLEASE tell me that when you hear something like this you set them straight! PLEASE!
Anybody own one of these? I'm thinking Imma go buy one. I can't do shapewear that goes over my navel cuz I feel like I'm suffocating and I love that this will make it so that the wind won't blow the dress between my legs up to high and leave nothing to the imagination.
I would like to know what other women do about vaginal odor. I am very clean, I don't have any diseases but I have vaginal odor sometimes that really bothers me. My doctor hasn't been much help. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
YOU ARE WELCOME TO COMMENT ANONYMOUSLY IF YOU HAVE INFORMATION THAT WILL HELP.
I truly HATE when men refer to women as 'FEMALE.' I remember the first time I heard it used in a way that made damn lip curl was by Ice Cube. He said it and I frown-t the hell up immediately. I mean sure...there are some instances when the word is used properly (usually when speaking of the actual BODY) but not in the way young men and men seem to be using it these days.
I know why it irks the shit outta me...what about you? Do YOU have a problem with it? Are YOU cool when a man refers to you or another woman in your presence as 'FEMALE?' Do you correct them?
I know a woman who wears jeans, t-shirts or fleece and sneakers all the time during the week.
So do I.
We had lunch together one day last week and she was wearing jeans, a t-shirt and a fleece.
So was I.
The conversation eventually got around to why she was all slumpy acting.
Her: I don't know. Something is wrong but nothing is going to change so I guess I should get over it.
Me: Da hell? You just told me absolutely nothing.
Her: I know...I just don't feel like a woman anymore. I don't feel...you know...sexy. That's why I dress like this. (She plucked her fleece as she said it.)
Me: Um...you know I'm basically wearing the same ish right? And I'm sexy hell.
Her: (noticing what I'm wearing for the first time) Oh...yeah...you are huh?
Me: Yes...I ARE. Do you think I feel like a woman and sexy?
Her: But you are.
Me: I always feel like a woman cuz well...that's what I ARE.
Her: Why do you keep saying ARE?
Me: Keep up...I'm goofy. Do I feel sexy right this minute? Um...not really cuz I'm not thinking about it. It's not the time nor the place so it seems the only disconnect between you and I is that you don't feel like a woman and you think you should be walking around oozing sexytime or something. What's that all about?
Her: I don't know.
Me: Sounds like YOU'RE making up a problem that's simply not there. Like...you have a NEED to find something wrong with you that's so big in your head and such a NON-something so you can't find a solution. Good luck with that shit.
Me: Think on it...it'll come to you cuz my food is getting cold and I can't STAND cold food.
So...do YOU understand what I was trying to tell her? Did it make sense? Do YOU feel sexy? If you don't...why don't you?
Someone told me recently that they love this blog because we have an extraordinarily high group of married women around here and it gives her hope. She says she believes in the power of being around what you want to be which is a wife.
