    Thank you. Do you put video in lower case instead of caps?

    I just went into advanced mode and clicked the "insert video" icon. That puts video in caps.

    I find it interesting how I have tendency to be more of an introvert out in the vanilla world and still somehow manage to have a people magnet effect. I don't go out of my way to engage anyone in conversation. Most of the time when I go somewhere I'm feeling so anxious to get in, get what I need, and get out asap, yet people flock to me. I could be down the shampoo aisle and a little old lady will come up to me and start talking about different shampoo's and then telling me about her grandkids, her dog, her arthritis, flower garden, bingo, etc. I could be sitting in a coffee shop drinking an iced chai and all of a sudden some dude will come up to me and start telling me his whole life story. I could be browsing in the clothing section and all of a sudden someone's kid is following me around, talking to me. I have homeless people come sit by me when I go to the park, not to beg for money but just to talk. I think if I wasn't crazy myself I probably would've done well as a psychologist.

    It might be because you're very attractive. I remember watching a tv show about attractiveness, and it's not just people who are physically attracted to you that are more likely to be friendly and personable, but people in general. For example, an attractive man or woman who approaches people for assistance is more likely to get a positive response from both men and women, than someone who isn't attractive. They also showed babies photos of attractive and unattractive people, and babies stared at the attractive people longer than the unattractive people. Also, studies have shown that attractive criminal defendants tend to fare better than unattractive criminal defendants in a court of law.

    It has been between 74-80 here for the past week. Today? 45 degrees. -_- I thought something was seriously wrong with me when I woke up shivering.

    Maryland weather is known for being wacky af like that. I had to turn the heat on the other morning. Today it was in the mid-80s, so I was finally able to wear a tank top and shorts. I think this was the only day this week it's hot enough to wear shorts. Lots of rain and thunderstorms this past week.

    What the hell will repel an annoying persistent dude? I have a male coworker at my vanilla job who will not stop trying to get me to go on a date with him. I've already lied and said I have 5 kids, am done with dating men/lesbian now, and this dude will not go away. He says,"That's ok. I love kids and I could turn you straight again guaranteed". Dude..no. Just go away already.

    Have you tried brutal honesty? Look dude, I have zero interest in you. I find you ignorant, boring, and unattractive. Please stop trying to date me. It will never, ever happen. And if you continue to bother me, I will report you to HR (or whoever takes complaints).

    Each of those is a list of obstacles to overcome. "I have five kids" means "I would, but I have to get around having five kids". "I am done with men" means "I would, but I have to get over being done with men".

    If the answer is "no", then stick with "no".

    It's probably best to just talk to HR. There's no way to know how he'll react to being insulted.

    Are you buying it for real estate investment or to live at? If so that can be a smart investment. You could buy houses and rent them out. I know some people who do that for a living.

    You could have an instant Brady Bunch, be pregnant with twins, and there will be thirsty dudes somewhere who will still approach you.....

    Some of them are that thirsty

    But yeah Titus' recommendation sounds reasonable.

    Is that like "Middle Earth"? Jk. Just curious. What do you mean by middle country? Also, if it makes you happy, why not? If you are going through a midlife crisis, why not by a expensive sports car or an airplane or sailboat or a cool quad copter? Just a thought, I'm not trying pry.

    I think it's funny and cute that Chief Long Fin gets all excited when he sees me. He comes up to the tank whenever he sees me walk up to it and starts wiggling side to side and swimming in circles fast. He'll follow my finger, wiggle from side to side again and look like he's dancing around. His fins and tail look like a graceful purple, blue, and red colored ribbon twirling around when he does that. Maybe he was a puppy in another life. Puppy dog fish.

    Some funny siggies seen recently, let them take a while to sink in.

    1) "There are 3 types of people in the world- those who can count, and those who can't."

    2) "Indecision may be a problem, then again it might not be."

    I’m in a retirement ( maybe the final one for real !) from sex work but in a way nothing has changed! I’m still in sales so I’m finding myself looking at the calendar and trying to figure out : “ Where is the next $500-$1000 coming from ?”

    I’m using all the pacing tricks / rewards for goals tricks I was using dancing.
    I’m still a “ path of least resistance “ type of sales person.

    Oh , I guess the hours ! There is a change beyond not being naked. Ha.
