Wine bottle?

Good luck, Tex. Hope it goes as smoothly as possible.

I am sending you, right now, a virtual cheese enchilada platter and a frozen margarita from the restaurant of your choice! :)

Happy Early Birthday! Shallow pleasure is good--go for it. I find that I only feel "old" when I think about how I'm "supposed" to feel or be at a certain age. When I'm just goin' around bein' myself and doin' my thing, whatever age I am feels pretty good. (That was a lot of apostrophes--I apologize).

Every day (and year) above ground has the potential to be a good one,right?

I'm in Texas, Tex_Mex (nice screen name), so I got nothin' in Philly. Best of luck with the search, though. :)

I hit the gym thrice this week, even though I'm three months pregnant and nauseated as hell.

Could I get a congratulatory smack on the ass please?

I'm sitting at home on my ass--still unshowered. What? Too much?

Yea for teaching at a church-affiliated university!

Many offices just have a rotten culture--it generally filters from the top down, but not always. And as far as first jobs out of college? Sadly, yes, the crappier the job the more normal it is. Ha. Everyone is so grateful to get that job, and twice as grateful to move on to the next one. Think of this one as character-building. :)

It gets better, wage slave! (Usually).

It's so hard to watch someone commit to a person you know is not good for him or her, or even worse, just not a good person at all.

However, I don't think you can really tell a people madly in love anything. Even if you do, they won't hear it. They don't want to. I think the best thing you can do is what you did--be supportive and honest before and after (and it seems there will inevitably be an "after," sadly). The "I told you so" moment will never come (or shouldn't--the jiltee is already suffering).

My own brother just married someone about whom I have very doubtful feelings, and about whom my husband (who is the best judge of character I know) has no positive feelings at all. It's caused a giant rift between my brother and our parents, and just a lot of pain all around. But no one, not even I, could tell him anything. He was just so happy to have found someone, and can't see the manipulation that's going on. But I want to have a relationship with him, so I do--I go along to get along--all the while dreading what I think will be the eventual outcome.

It sucks, but I plan to be there for him on both sides of this thing, come what may. He's the only brother I have, and one of the most important relationships in my life.
