omg.... my favorite quote from Victor Hugo is....

"The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved - loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves."

Hi you!

So sorry you saw all that... I hate arguments too... thank goodness none of us do that... we're just goofs... on emotional rollercoasters... well at least I am... :o:lol:

Sadly, I am one of the goofs too, on that rollercoaster, and I want off!!

Well, Victor Hugo (he wrote Les Miserables) said once, "Forty is the old age of youth, but fifty is the youth of old age". So there, that makes me young again, who wants to be forty! :unsure:

What a wonderful quote, it makes me feel like a spring chicken. Celia you reminded me of a Leonard Cohen line that goes, "here's to the few who forgive what you do and the fewer who don't even care".

Robbin,

Thanks! I figured there had to be some novas up there! Yeah, we are not looking forward to the traffic!! Traffic in Virginia Beach sucks as well, but I know its nothing like up there. We lived there in 82-84 and then 88-92. My dad was in Northern VA for the past five years as well, so we've been up there a lot. Its overwhelming, but it really was a great position that I couldn't turn down.

I hate boxes. Hate, hate, hate them.

Maybe we can meet up sometime once I'm there and settled! We'll be living very close to GMU.

Laura

Love nail polish-especially pinks and purples,irridescant ones are my fave.

I tend to have my toe-nails painted more than my fingernails,as I always forget to wear rubber gloves when doing chores like cleaning the oven and it all chips off.

I NEVER cut my fingernails(that would be sacrilege!!)

When I had my first baby the midwife said ''you'll have to cut them nails!!''

I don't think so :o I'm so used to them I never scratched the babies.

I did have acrylic nails for a while-with the 'french manicure' (natural look) but I couldn't be bothered with getting them done every 2 weeks.

Hubby doesn't like dark polish on me-especially dark reds :huh: but I think I quite like them,the dramatic look against my ever paling skin!! :lol:

Oh! I never cut them short!! Just from obscenely long, to plain long!!! I know they're too long when I'm hitting the wrong keys on the computer all the time! :lol:

Yikes! So, the article said something about her cutting them off after 27 years, is she cutting them? I can't imagine it was worth that to get in the Guinness Book!!! I think Howard Hughes had very long fingernails in his later life, too.

Ewwwwww! I do like the look of elegant fingernails--but when I've let mine grow the least little bit, they catch on sweaters and hose and towels and I HATE THAT!

I'm just stuck with inelegant--but very comfortable--hands

I hate that, too. You just have to keep the snags filed.

I'm with you, Fiddle-Faddle. I keep mine short too, but then it's much easier to teach PE when I don't have to worry about my fingernails breaking.

Mine are usually long just because they are ... I never hesitate to take clippers to them if I'm going to need them short. I just usually don't take the time, so they're long.

Hi! I'm exactly forty, so can I join?

Nails: Fingers are short and bare; Toes are either bare or have brown polish. Currently they are brown because when I took the polish off, they looked yellow. Yuck!

Lipgloss: I wear different stuff--my favorite is Bath & Body gloss, although sometimes I just wear Carmex or something--my lips are so dry in winter!

Quick serious question here... have any of you guys tried Lidoderm pain patches? Since I know all you guys so well I do trust your thoughts.... I hate..hate..hate...meds <_< (as you all know :D )... and I do know you guys suffer with other problems as well, like I do... so should I consider asking my doc about these patches?...

I don't know anything about those. Sorry...

Are you still having the pain from before? I feel the same way about meds, but sometimes they're necessary. I got an eye infection last week cleaning out my window boxes--dirt flew into my eyes. I've been taking antibiotic eye drops--was nervous about it, but also needed them!

Are these patches sold over the counter? I've never heard of them.

Yeah... I'm pretty miserable... I believe they're rx... so freaked out by meds... I know they aren't narcotic or anything... just don't know much about them... I read about these patches on another forum....

Celia,

I found this, don't know if it'll be any help--

CECILE - - take some meds, woman. You are in too much pain. dont' now about the patch...

OMG the football talk...... :angry::lol::angry::lol: may have to kick you girls to another thread ;) ...am in posttraumatic stress from Robert's :angry: football/sports pathology....OMG.....the mood instability, the obsession, the freaking BULLDOGS, he is a season-ticket holder for over 20 years....but he has to study every team that has ever played or will play the 'Dogs....so the other night, I'm at the pub where my niece was bartending, and the 'Dogs come on (it's out hometown team and my alma mater, BTW) and everyone starts cheering...I started booing, LOUDLY :o:lol: , and everyone jerks their heads around to stare at me...all points I had gained during the evening may have then been lost....someone asks me, Are you a Colorado fan? my reply - NO, I am just severely ANTI-BULLDOG :lol::angry: so the tiny gift that God is giving me? the 'Dogs have never had such a losing streak in present Coach's 10-year reign, counting end of last season to this.....I am beyond ecstatic....they need to win five of their remaining games this year to be considered for a bowl game, or a WAC final...and of course, I am praying every time that they lose......and so far they have :lol::lol::lol::lol: And I am trusting that God is going to give me this small but delicious pleasure...ha ha ha ha ha HA!!!!! I know it's wicked....but help me out, girls, all collective prayers that this will be THE WORST season ever for the 'Dogs...

And dont' even get me started on Robert's :angry: obsession with the PRO teams...and all the time devoted to that...and then to basketball....OMG there were only three months out of the year with no sports OBSESSION and personality change....

okay...it's okay....I"m okay...it's all over now and he's an ancient memory....... :huh::lol:

Welcome and hello to: Lisa, Ursula, Rinne, who else is new and whom did I forget? had it all in my big post that I lost......someone else....can't think......

Cecile...thanks for rescuing me from my MENopause thread :)
