I can't get this horrible nanny murder story out of my head. I'm trying to focus on work but all I can think of is my kids right now, and how I'm not with them. frown.gif

I don't see the upside on the toddler pics. Not that it is offensive to me, but there is a real possibility that others may find it so. Did that thought not come to mind?

Christ, that's right. I imagine all of us here grew up when those pictures were taken with film, not digitally. I think the in-laws weren't reacting to that, however. Still, SS's point is a damn good one.

A colleague just (like in the last 30 minutes) went nuts trying to track down his 17 year old niece. Apparently her mom is certifiable, and she didn't think to tell anyone in the family that her daughter would be staying with a friend while mom recovers from surgery. They only learned about it because she mentioned in an offhand way that her daughter "would be back in a couple of days." Mom's boyfriend is creepy trailer trash who probably shouldn't be around a 17 year old unsupervised.

The niece is fine and staying with a friend, but WTF kind of parent is that?

I feel a cold coming on - this is not the time of year to get sick...too much shit to do.

The weather outside sucks...tomorrow will be rainy, working outside in the cold rain sucks, especially when feeling shitty.

All I've been doing the past month is research and reading; I'm writing longer, more thorough papers than people I know doing their graduate studies in my program....

I left my office today, but then I started to worry that I had left my fan on and that it might start a fire. So I had to come back and check. Of course the fan was off. I never actually do any of the things I worry about having done. But irregardless, I continue to worry.

How about when cats say irregardless? Do you have feelings one way or another about that?

this has me seeing red - would appreciate mature feedback on this:
my wife is out of town, and for the past few days i've been snapping a few iPhone photos of my kid (3-year-old-daughter) in various candids that represent our home life together. i've forwarded the photos via text to my wife so that she's felt connected while away.
one of the photos was of her in the shower. one of us has to give her a bath or shower every night (obviously), and she was hamming it up in the shower a bit and i snapped a pic and sent it to my wife. she has her back turned to the cam and yes you can see her 3-year-old butt but she's looking back and smiling and holding a toy.
a day or so later i got a text from her auntie - my mother-in-law's sister. Let's call her Rose. Rose watched my daughter for the first 3 years of her life - she was our day care provider, 1-on-1, until our daughter started preschool just a month or two ago. auntie was saying she missed our daughter, and i forwarded the pic because i thought it was cute.
I then sent it to my mother in law, who had called earlier in the evening, thinking hey, maybe she'll think this is cute too. that's it - both people who have seen the kid in this exact scenario before. In fact, I believe both have, within the past week.
anyways, the fact that i took and forwarded this pic is now a cause of great fucking consternation with the in-laws, who are apparently beside themselves with this immodest photo and the father who took it, it being inappropriate at her age and whatnot. they are all talking about it and apparently some in the family "can't even look at it."
am i nuts for being outraged at what i am perceiving as a pretty salacious implication?
(ib4 post is useless without pics)

lol.. this is how your in-laws sees you, D:


seriously- I'd just ignore them.... people can put malice in everything and anything if they so want- that's their problem. nothing good will come out of it if you confront them with this, and you surely do not need to explain yourself to them. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I sorta had that same issue with MY folks, when my wife called my father and invited him to a dinner celebrating my mother in law's death anniversary, and my wife told my father that he's invited but she understands if he's busy and won't be unable to attend. and my folks (who I know do not like my wife because they are fucking crazy) interpreted this as "we have an event and I have to invite you but you don't need to go". fucking killed me when I found out (through another person) but I found it so pointless to even talk to them. malicious people is malicious.

Douglas, I'm with you, but I don't email those pictures. but they are cute, and I see them as innocent, but my wife feels strongly about them, so I don't take them.



I have my team in town this week, and it is a collosal pain in the ass. we have a corporate dress code - business casual. my guys stretch it, wearing jeans and sneakers, so I sent out an email reminding them how to dress before they came. of course, one of them tried to stretch the rules, wearing a pair of new dark jeans and a sweatshirt, and I had to tear him a new asshole. I don't like doing that.

That kind of conduct drives me absolutely batty. It doesn't even seem like you can chalk it up to laziness, since it doesn't really require much more effort, if any, to dress business casual than in jeans and a sweatshirt. It's like the person is going out of his way to send the signal to everyone that he's doing the rock bottom minimum, and maybe even less if he can get away with it. That's a terrible signal to send.

Make him tow the line. Remember one of our banned trolls, Hey Man? He went on endlessly about this topic and I kept telling him I would do progressive discipline and eventually fire the guy. Hey Man just would not believe that.
