    Things that made you smile 6th Jan 14 at 1:31 PM
    We have a what's irritating you thread, and I think we need a thread for things that have made us smile, etc.

    Me - well, we have a puppy who is now 8 months. I let her out this morning and was hoping to keep the door open for her to come in. But it was too windy. I was stood by the door waiting for her, expecting to see her come down the steps.

    I then heard a tap at the door. She'd come down the steps, which I hadn't seen and tapped to be let in. She also taps to go out.

    I can't bring myself to thank the one with the knives, it is just disgusting that someone would do that to themselves

    At least with small piercings, the holes have a chance to close up, and/or be disguised.


    And it's the same with facial tattoos.
    There was a time when no tattooist would do a face.

    Dog found yet another football in the bushes and is now in the process of peeling it
    I tried to play with him but he is not interested, there now looks like a blizzard has hit my livingroom carpet with all the bits of the balls skin lying about

    I was bricking it over starting a thread asking for help with actually fixing some stuff in my life that I usually just whinge about. Previous attempts to get help with similar issues from the Housing subforum produced what I will tactfully call "mixed results". So far, response has been both lovely and incredibly helpful. I'm feeling a bit soppy about it. MSE can be a bear pit, but it can be a kitten pit too.

    (I was going to say shark pit instead of bear pit, then then I couldn't decide if that was a thing and I decided a shark would probably just die if you stuck it a pit...maybe a water-filled pit. I think I need a new brain.)

    Yeah, I've got to say that one's an overreach. Back in my dress-wearing days, I'd wear the same one as much as I wanted and felt no pressure to buy a new one each time. I think that particular lack of privilege issue is self-imposed and could easily be avoided by people saying "there's !!!! all wrong with this dress, why would I waste money on a new one?"

    It seems to be more of a rich women vs poor women than a men vs women issue.

    Unless by "event" they're talking about the Oscars or something. In that case, wearing a new dress each time is because the Oscars is as much a fashion showcase as an awards show, so that'd be like complaining that models walking down the catwalk at a fashion show wear different clothes each time.

    If the "events" are Jimmy's wedding and Bob's birthday party, it's entirely self-inflicted.

    Er, there are bag ladies better turned out than I, but they Care. I don't.

    Besides which, the women who titter at my clothing choices do not have to teeter even 10 yards in my boots. I've tried wearing their shoes & endured the treatment for plantar (let alone the twisted ankles etc) in consequence - they can keep their pretty shoes & their pretty getups & their hideous priorities.

    I'm just so happy to visit the podiatrist & be told I stand beautifully!
