For some reason i have permanently crossed my wires and always think prima (cousin) is novia (girlfriend). This keeps resulting in Rude Moments by yours truly.

They don’t even say “novia” in Chile! They say “polola” which i think is very cute.

our socialist org has a local convention next month and I am running to be a delegate. Our branch is the biggest in the city (over 1000 members last I checked) so we get like 60 reps. There was a thread of "who to vote for that you might not personally know" and this woman said maybe the 2nd best compliment I've ever gotten. She said "vote for [theinevitable], he does a ton of work and nobody knows because he isn't bossy and doesn't have an ego about it." As a major over-talker this is a characteristic I have really tried to cultivate.

On the other hand, literally everyone except me voted for a new "branch priority" that the urban planner in me cannot get entirely behind. And so lately I am flaking because my heart is not in it. (Also, spending time with the GF or hibernating instead of going to really long meetings). This is the downside of trying to be a follower.

if someone is a journalist and you two are in contact about your job for an interview

it is not a date
they do not want you to ask them out
they do not want to flirt
they do not want you to text them at 1am asking "r u up, what r u up to haha"

they are just trying to do their job.

Come on dude.

It does because the "r u up, what r u up to haha" did not sound like you.

I am looking for some very minor jewelry for my GF's birthday. Like a very simple necklace. For some reason everything I kind of like on etsy is labeled "dainty" and that word is killing me. I just want a little silver item for my girlfriend, not like, a frilly lace garment for a victorian lady.

If you read the statement "Pi has died and gone to heaven. Today he gets steak night leftovers. I can hear him chomping out in the yard as I type this." accompanied by a photo and a video of Pi eating a steak bone would you mistakenly think that Pi had died? What if 10 minutes later you added "Disclaimer: Pi is not literally dead. It’s a figure of speech. It means he is ecstatic because he’s eating STEAK." to the statement. Would you still mistakenly think that Pi had died? Because that's what's going on on my Facebook wall right now.

Maybe I need to amend the statement again. If I change it to "It's like Pi has died and gone to heaven..." do you think it will help?

I think you need not step in front of the hilarious train wreck.

When I read that I had like 50 milliseconds of panic - only exactly as long as it took to get to the second sentence. It's inexplicable that anyone could read the whole post, even before the edit, and be unclear what it meant. It makes me despair as a writer - god knows how few people actually understand my carefully composed articles.

It's probably also an effect of the context though - not only is Facebook a place on the internet that is not peopled by the cream of the crop, also, it feels to me like there's a whole lot of announcements of dead dogs there. But still, once you read the whole thing, WTF.

But yeah, the "it's like" would help. Although Ash has a point, too.

I chose to clarify my post, but now I think I should have left it alone. My expectation, my hope that people would share with me my joy at seeing Pi's eyes light up when I handed him a huge juicy steak bone is now lost anyway. You may have noticed Alohadawg in there chastising me for my poor choice of words. I think he is sore because I like to give him shit over the Cleveland Browns.

Paul, I wouldn't sweat people who piss and moan about words when they gloss right over a happy ass doogo picture to get there.

Judge people by their priorities.
