• I have my own style too, I wear things I just like.

    During the summer, I like knit capris and jean shorts, with crew neck tees or sleeveless tops.  I also like pencil skirts, but I prefer stretchy ones that still let me move.   I pretty much only wear sandals during warm months (it’s a lot hotter here than England!), so I try to choose things th…[Read more]

  • Mamie replied to the topic Online Fraud: Beware in the forum General Chat 2 months, 1 week ago

    Those dating ones are awful … another one people do is get you to fall in love with them, then they need $2000 to fly over to come be with you. It’s a total scam. Definitely never give your money to someone you don’t know, unless it’s a small amount. I’ve given a few hundred here or there to people I felt really needed help.

    For those lottery…[Read more]

  • Mamie replied to the topic why i luv be girl in the forum Fashion & Lifestyle 3 months ago

    I love just a clear polish on my finger nails, over a base coat.  I love how they look so shiny, but also feel stronger and smoother, and just look cleaner too.

    I looove this feeling of lip-plumping gloss (getting that wonderful tingling in my lips right now!)

  • Mamie replied to the topic Are You Happy? in the forum General Chat 3 months ago

    I’m recently married and right now I’m still on my honeymoon high.

    I feel I’m generally happy … I enjoy my life, and I’m glad to have money and to own my own house.  I’m glad I look young and pretty, I like trying out new fashion.  I really enjoy baking and listening to music, and I’m glad to have my freedom and my independence.

    I’ve had t…[Read more]

  • Cassandra, it sounds like you need to use a nice fabric softener!

    I’ve always used a dryer, but mine is gas powered instead of electric, and it works really well.  I’ve never worried about leaving my house while it’s running, that sounds strange to me, lol!

    I do at least one load of laundry every day, for clothes and towels (I don’t like using…[Read more]

  • Mamie replied to the topic U2 Feedback in the forum General Chat 3 months ago

    I hate social media, people are so horrible on there.  I don’t participate with any of those things, because I get hurt really easily and don’t do well with being yelled at.

    I’m so sorry for your pain Lake District, I hope your doctor’s able to find out what’s causing it and can get it fixed for you.  Oh dear, you really need to wait months for an ultrasound?? 🙁

  • Mamie replied to the topic Optimism or naïvety? in the forum Health & Diet 3 months ago

    Ugh, I’ve met so many men who call pessimism “realism” … I don’t know why, but I feel the male species is very cynical by nature but they like to try rationalizing everything.  Men are highly emotional and irrational, but like to think they’re governed by logic, and tend to put down people who look at things in a happy way.  I’ve been called “…[Read more]

  • Mamie replied to the topic Do You Love Your Sleep? in the forum Health & Diet 3 months ago

    Oh dear Cassandra, I’m so sorry your neighbors are so inconsiderate!

    I’m a very fussy sleeper, things have to be perfect.  I can’t have any imperfections in my mattress, and my sheets have to be just right.  I need it to be cool (thank goodness for central air conditioning!), and I can’t have any lights on.  I also have to have my ceiling fan go…[Read more]

  • Mamie replied to the topic Time: Love or Hate? in the forum General Chat 3 months ago

    I’m sorry you had a fight with your sister Kitty … but I must admit I’m terribly confused, lol!  Why was your using the washing machine such a horrible thing?  I feel like I’m missing something 🙁

    I hate time, I feel like I’m a slave to the clock.  I don’t want to have to do things at certain times or in a certain order, I’d like to be able to…[Read more]

  • I hate working, I’d love to quit.  But my job is comfortable and I make good money, and it’s mostly easy for me so I keep doing it, lol.  I could probably quit now that I’m married and we’d get by, but I get paid a very good salary and I just wouldn’t want to give that up.  I get to work from home at least, and I really only work like 10-15 ho…[Read more]

  • I believe in God, as in I believe God created the universe and is part of us, and that our mortal lives aren’t the totality of our existence.  My personal belief is that the universe is God and is self aware and eternal, and there’s only one consciousness energy and each of us is like a leaf on a single tree.

    I don’t believe in supernatural…[Read more]

  • Daisy4 and Profile picture of MamieMamie are now friends 3 months ago

  • Men don’t want to work cooperatively with us, they want to dominate us, and part of that is constantly trying to say we’re weak.  So we’ve got to show strength, because we’ve got to fight for our place of equality, men won’t just hand it to us.  They’re going to fight us every step of the way, so right now we’re in a position where we’ve got to r…[Read more]

  • I’m constantly criticized by men I know for how I approach my job at work.

    I’ll gladly help other coworkers with things, especially getting something set up that makes their jobs easier.  I want everyone in my group to succeed.  I’ve had male “friends” tell me this is a weakness of mine, how I’m being taken advantage of by other people, and t…[Read more]

  • Oh dear, I’m so sorry your irritation has come back Kitty!  Are you able to get in to see a doctor today, so she can look at it when it’s at its worst?

    I hope you’re able to figure out what’s causing it and find a workable solution 🙁 (no pun intended!)

  • I’m so sorry you’re going through this, I see things very, very differently from Cassandra.  But please know what I’m going to say is based on my personal life experiences (which are different than hers), and from what you’re writing here and what I’m sensing.

    I’d love to go to Africa too Kitty .. I’d prefer their jungles over South America’s, I don’t know why but the Amazon terrifies me.

    I’ve watched Disney’s “Tarzan” too often, and how I wish I could be Jane Porter (I’d especially like to spend all my time in Africa barefoot, lol)

  • Mamie replied to the topic Are Women the Stronger Sex? in the forum General Chat 5 months ago

    Men think they’re stronger, because they view things like stubbornness, cruelty, selfishness, greed, and willingness to commit violence as strengths.

    When a man wants something, he takes it .. even if he has to kill you to get it.  Because a woman is willing to sacrifice her own desires for peace and harmony, he views her as “weak.”  Men look o…[Read more]
