    Bothered by the last game of thrones. But not for the same reasons as everyone else.

    Parents who shove a phone in their ~2-year-old's face every time he screams, teaching him that he should scream at the top of his lungs when he wants to watch something. This is obviously a great parenting strategy, especially when you're on a long drive and hit a patch of poor cellular service, losing the video stream. Then, just murmur "no" as he continues to scream.

    I have always been superstitious about my birthday. Every year for as long as I can remember, everything goes to hell for me right on or before my birthday. This year's been no different. The tipping point was finding out a co-worker I was into is getting married is 2 weeks. They've been engaged for 2 years and I never even noticed. Now I feel like a fool.

    As am I. I do miss the occasional OT cat fight.

    Break the cycle with your own children. That's the only way to counter the millennial parents.
    And congratulations on the pending arrival of your own little tiger. :vbbiggrin:

    Thanks! They said, "you'll be dealing with this in two years too". Not a chance.

    I've had the same thing with mine when I was younger. Luckily haven't had anything strike in a few years.

    Going to buy some Puma shoes online. There is a pair for which 2 reviews says runs slightly big, one says runs slightly small, and the other 6 or 7 say nothing about size. So I'm wondering if I should get a half size smaller. Not enough information.

    Buy 3-4 sizes around the target size, and send back the other's that don't fit.
