    I just got a huuuge promotion at work this week … not a change in my job role or function, just a back-office change to my employee category so I could get a raise.  It’s my first time ever getting a five-figure raise at one time, and it’s funny because I was thinking about how my raise this year was more than my annual salary at my first j…[Read more]

  • Mamie replied to the topic Passive income in the forum Work & Careers 2 years, 4 months ago

    [quote quote=207856]Well, real estate rentals generate passive income as well as other investments.

    That’s what I was going to say too 🙂 The only way you can really make any kind of real passive income is through investing.  You can start with something small, and once you get about $10,000 or so built up you’ll really start to notice…[Read more]

  • He’s a jerk, what a terrible joke.  He’s basically comparing you to cheap pizza, and he’s also reducing you down to nothing more than a sex object.  Sure it’s a stupid “male joke,” but he wouldn’t post such a thing if he had any respect for you.

    You deserve better.

  • I can’t stand listening to the radio, because I both don’t like commercials and I also don’t like my music jumping all over the place.  I still buy CDs and I like to listen to a single album for a while, then I switch to another one.

    I’m looking into signing up for singing lessons, for classical/opera 🙂

  • I’m constantly reading, often I’ll have three books on the go at once.  I’m a member of two book clubs, which keeps me busy.  I don’t like digital books and I still buy mine in print 🙂

  • [quote quote=207974]I’m happy to see that curvy women are included in fashion. Some might think it’s glorifying an unhealthy image. If losing weight were easy, we’d all be thin. We might as well try to look our best on that journey to better health.

    Those same people don’t seem to think that anorexic is unhealthy 🙁

    I’m glad, and I enj…[Read more]

    My fantasy career would be a Broadway star, who moves into acting and does musicals.

  • I don’t believe you should be arrested, unless what you’re saying is inciting violence.

    But I do believe in social consequences.  Such as, if you post transphobic things on facebook, and you’re associated with your company, then they have every right to fire you (this is especially true if you’re a board member or something high-profile) I also…[Read more]

  • Do you remember “Be kind, please rewind?” XD  We had a machine that you put your movie in, and it rewinds it for you.

    I miss going with my family to Blockbuster, and looking at the VHS movies, and deciding what we’re going to get to watch tonight.  You had the whole walls of new movies out, and you’d hope they’d have in stock what you wanted to s…[Read more]

  • Mamie replied to the topic Tarot in the forum General Chat 2 years, 4 months ago

    Tarot isn’t about fortune telling or anything like that, though there’s a lot of misconceptions about it.  It’s really more about psychology, and exploring your unconscious.  The cards help you focus your thoughts on something you might not have thought before.  It’s really fun to do on your own, or with friends.

    I have a group that meets tw…[Read more]

    Does anyone play, or have an interest?

  • I’ve never been outside the United States and Canada, and I doubt I ever will.  To be honest, the rest of the world scares me for some reason.

    I’ve lived in Ontario Canada, Georgia, and Michigan.  Georgia was the most beautiful of the three and definitely had the nicest weather.  Ontario is really crowded, I’m not one to enjoy quite so much po…[Read more]

  • Mamie replied to the topic Pretty Woman in the forum Hobbies & Leisure 2 years, 5 months ago

    I watch You’ve Got Mail at least 2-3 times a year.  Almost any Nora Ephron movie has nearly endless rewatch value.

  • Thanks Kitty 🙂

    I use mascara almost daily, but I rarely wear eyeliner.  I’ll often gently brush the very ends of my eyelids with the tip of my mascara brush, just to help bring out some definition.  Unfortunately, my eyes are a bit deep-set and I need help to bring them forward.  I use a palette for eye shadow, usually sticking to pink/blush or…[Read more]

  • I don’t follow fashion trends, I buy what I feel looks good on me.  I guess I’d describe my style as “smart casual.” I prefer winter style, I’m very partial to sweaters, but I prefer summer footwear (sandals!)

    I almost exclusively wear skirts, usually knee-length.  They’re much more comfortable than anything else, and just look classy in my m…[Read more]

  • I don’t laugh, they’re obviously hurting really badly from self-esteem issues, and feel they need to do those types of things to fix it.  Then it’s a disaster, and they have to live with it … I feel so sad for them 🙁

    I get my eyebrows waxed.  I have naturally growing caterpillars, and they look just awful if I let them get out of control.  I…[Read more]

  • Spring is my favorite season … I like when the weather’s getting a bit warmer, the days are getting longer, and life is growing all around you.  Fall goes by too quickly here, and you know winter is coming right around the corner.  I don’t hate winter, but there’s so much snow here you can often feel trapped, it’s too dangerous to just go out a…[Read more]

  • Mamie replied to the topic Do You Use The Bus? in the forum General Chat 2 years, 5 months ago

    I’m not really a fan of taking a bus.  I like my privacy in my car, and like to listen to my music and such.  I feel safer, and also I have more convenience since I can get where I’m going quicker, and I can transport things if I need to.  I also don’t like how busses confuse me, and I hate having to change at different stops to get where I’m tr…[Read more]

    I’m feeling cute AF today, sorry for so many pictures.  I’m just feeling so happy and confident with my appearance lately.

    I’m glad you’re going to see a doctor Kitty, but oh dear you really have to wait a long time! Whatever’s going on, I do hope they can figure it out and get everything taken care of for you.
