    Quick Vegetarian Meals

    My favorite so far of all the burgers is the Gardein Ultimate; I find it to be a pretty spot-on facsimile of an actual hamburger. I bring them to barbecues, along with Follow Your Heart "cheese" slices, so I can eat like "regular" people, haha!

    Ohhh, ATMs/card machines at cash resisters, haha! What I hate (and this is mostly my own fault) is the yes/no question at the end of the transaction--I get so used to hitting "yes" for the (paraphrased) "are you all done?" one that I sometimes reflexively do it even though it might say (paraphrased) "do you need to do another thing?"

    S01.E05: 03 Bonnie and Clyde

    Even though I know this show is present day, I feel the same way--its general vibe (and clothing!) if not its technology, is very late '90s/early 2000s. Maybe part of that all all the Larry Clarkishness.

    S09.E22: Reunion Part 1

    Like, "Why didn't you just return the dog to Lisa, Dorit?!"?

    Then I definitely wholeheartedly apologize. However, the wording "why should I give a fuck" makes it a bit murky if the sentiment is that you give a fuck but are focusing on something you feel is more dire and in need of your help. That said, good for you for being someone who does give a fuck (haha, we are being so profane in a discussion about caring and kindness!) , and not just about rescue pups but also for people who need a place to stay when shit goes down.

    I agree; my issue was the "why should I give a fuck?" notion that only one cause can be cared about at a time.

    I will go so far as to assume that a lot of us know people who would (maybe me, who knows?)--but also know a lot of people who would do the opposite. But that doesn't matter in this particular discussion about donating money and time to charitable causes, as that's not an either/or scenario (like, say, "Who would you save from a sinking boat, a dog or a human?"). Original Poster's sentiment was basically that one shouldn't give a fuck about Issue B at all because Issue A needs attention. But we can, I hope, give fucks about more than one thing.

    Hey man, I'm her age and I can do a split too with no hip trauma (and I just might right here at work because I'm bored as hell and tired of sitting at a desk!). Some people are actually capable of caring about more than one thing at once. Everything is not either/or and not everyone needs to do everything in order to be charitable. I mean, I volunteer my time at an animal shelter but not a people shelter, so does that automatically mean I don't give a fuck about the homeless? I don't think it does.

    The Hills

    I confess to buying the song used as the Vanderpump Rules theme. And, if crystals make people feel better (even if it's just by making them think they feel better, if that makes sense), then who is it hurting? No less questionable than religious services and rituals, IMO, and at the very least, you get something cool (if overpriced) to wear. People swear by yoga* and meditation, which not only do nothing for me personally but actually try my patience. *Yoga without the hippie aspects (especially flutesy sounds, ugh!) is fine; I do love a good stretch!

    Pet Peeves

    I am having a slow week at work. Here is why that is peeve-inducing (other than boredom): I work at an agency and we record our time in 15-minute increments that are billed to a job's clients. On super-busy days, I sometimes rack up at 6 hours by 1 p.m. But on slow days, like today, I have nothing logged to my timesheet yet, even though I've been here for over two hours. If the powers that be didn't care, it would be fine. BUT... We are repeatedly told that we need to be "billable"--more than three hours a day attributed to "admin tasks" is frowned upon. So basically, we need to lie about how long we took to do a job, I guess? But here's another but: There are only a certain amount of hours allotted to each job, so you also can't hog 'em up just to fill a timesheet! Oy vey.

    The Hills

    I think their whole thing was an act (though I believe their assholish tendencies and willingness to screw over their friends were real).

    Commercials That Annoy, Irritate or Outright Enrage

    I sort of want a reality show about the neighborhood in which Sheila's she-shed is burned down. Because what in the hell kind of people live there if a victim of arson (she suspects) is so calm on the phone and says "finally"?

    Back when I waited tables, a friend/coworker had enough one night, proceeded to--loudly and in front of everyone--tell off all the bosses (and a few regulars) in epic fashion, and then walk right out. All it was missing was a well-placed, "I said good day." I was hoping for that from Camille.

    Unless it's a baby-sized onesie, is a woman really ever too old to wear whatever she wants? I hope not.

    OK--I can get behind this sentiment.
