Rewind to about two years back to when I met my guy on FB. We knew OF each other since we went to high school together so we had been FB friends due to having tons of mutual friends but never actually spoke. At this point, I was well ahead into my first year of post-college newbie work and he was working off the coast… » 5/30/14 7:17pm 5/30/14 7:17pm

Ooooh, love these GT open posts! My Grandma, whom I love dearly, pulls out a recipe year after year from 1958. It's of one of those horrific mint-colored pastel jello mold cakes with other gelatinous bits of... meat, carrots, and any other NOPE thing you can add to the already horrific jello mold. Every year, it… » 5/30/14 2:14pm 5/30/14 2:14pm

I know it's hard to focus on what they did/didn't do for you guys, but to take some stress off your shoulders, I'd just get them something, but small. I'm just thinking do unto others what you'd want done to you but I know that's like impossible with selfish people. I'd give them something...albeit small, or even a… » 5/28/14 6:19pm 5/28/14 6:19pm

There was absolutely no need to narrow-mindedly assume what all Americans think and attacking ericafalls. I've lived in over five countries, including one now outside of the US as an American. I can't speak for all Americans but this one thinks America IS a pretty great place to live. » 5/27/14 3:17pm 5/27/14 3:17pm

You can carry both, in fact! Here's the site for prohibited items and has a neat little search engine where you can enter anything you are unsure of to confirm. http://www.tsa.gov/traveler-infor... » 5/26/14 1:36pm 5/26/14 1:36pm

That looks UH-MAZING. Can I join you for some? Apparently the different kinds of cabbage have so many good vitamins for you. Now you've inspired me to make some with this recipe - thanks! (Can you ask your Chef Dad what is the best way to cook giant prawns? I just bought some thinking they looked so interesting and… » 5/26/14 12:47pm 5/26/14 12:47pm

I agree with you to an extent. His father actually didn't take him to all those Star Wars premieres - that was his mother, who had connections with George Lucas. I believe she even briefly dated him, as he states somewhere in that horrific manifesto. The father seemed to be very involved in his upbringing and… » 5/25/14 5:22pm 5/25/14 5:22pm

About a month ago a good guy friend texted me something I kept because it made me laugh and smile. He said, "Tom.Cruise.Is.Weird, you have a beauty about you that I, who is relatively good with words, cannot describe. It's like you were created in some weird government facility that just took what is desirable and… » 5/23/14 7:41pm 5/23/14 7:41pm

THIS. I dated a habitual pot smoker for 2 years and could NOT do it anymore. He would smoke after waking up, during lunch at work, and again in the evenings every. single. day. I had to ask him to NOT smoke before we went out to dinner and a movie. It made him so incredibly lazy, he only knew one thing to make for… » 5/21/14 2:11pm 5/21/14 2:11pm
