Commenting to add: Solved my own mystery! It's Phidippus audax and it is missing legs.

It's like when I briefly moved from chicago to omaha and every sandwich came with potato chips no matter how fancy the restaurant. No fries, just chips. wtf was that?

Also weird happy hours at fancy bars where there would just be like a big crock pot of ground beef at the end of the bar and people would just help themselves and make these sandwiches like sloppy joes but instead of tomato sauce they would put ketchup on. There wasn't even a sign or anything saying 'free gross food here' but everyone seemed to know exactly what was going on.

I'm American and wtf is that sloppy joe story? That's gotta be a niche thing

Hello! My boyfriend and I are coming to Paris for 4 days in about a week an a half. What are the best places to eat and shop on a budget? We want to see the city like locals!

Also, should we book Eiffel Tower tickets in advance? How about the Louve/Musee d'Orsay? Where are the most accessible catacombs?

Miss 6: I don’t really like when Nanna ruby wants me to give her a kiss

Me: why is that? She’s your great nanna and you only see her a few times a year.

Miss 6: she has so many lines and saggy bits in her face sometimes they get in my mouth and between my lips.

Edit: both my kids know they don’t have to show affection, kiss or hug anyone they don’t want to.. even if they are family. The reason I said“she’s your great nanna and you only see her a few times a year” is she said it no where near a visit with her, just randomly whilst we were driving. I wanted to know how / why she came out with that.

Teach your kid that’s it’s okay to say no to unwanted contact! Even if it’s from family you only see a few times a year.

There was a kids show I remember fondly from childhood. It was a bunch of mouse children playing around together. I'm pretty sure it was stop motion or some similar animation technique. All I really remember is the mice playing "pass the parcel" and playing hide and seek. I've never heard anyone else describe it and I've been looking for years.

Naa, hairy man butt is not the same as silky smooth woman butt.

Most women have hairy cracks too my dude, they just shave.

Have you tried framing it so that he realizes how inconsiderate he's being? I find it incredibly selfish that he's sick and doesn't think about how he could harm those around him by NOT covering his mouth! You mentioned in another comment that you're expecting a child soon, will he do this around your newborn baby's delicate immune system? Put your foot down on this for your babies sake.

Ask him why is it so hard to sit and have a 1 hour conversation with you when you eat out instead of looking at videos? Is he that bored all the time?? And even if he is bored, he should care simply because it bothers you! Couldn't he just do other, less video/sound-reliant activities on his phone to keep him busy?

OP, this guy sounds really obtuse.

Am I missing something? Where is the second flower?

At that point it’s more about the closure of the person saying goodbye than the soon-to-be-deceased actually hearing/understanding that goodbye.

Didn’t OP make it pretty clear that the uncle was guilted by his siblings into watching his mother die? I might have misread it, but it really, really didn’t seem like he wanted that.

I was replying to the previous deleted comment on why someone might want to visit a dying relative, not OPs specific scenario.

This thing has branches big enough to be impressive trees on their own! They’re so big that people have had to install metal support beams to keep them up.

If you're a guy, 30 is not a big deal

30 is not a big deal for a woman either. Don't subscribe to that patriarchal school of thought that says any unmarried woman over 25 is automatically an old biddy.

Just do you and the right person will come along.

Edit: Guess I should've known better than to defend the worth of women as individuals on the internet. Forgive me, wise men of reddit.

It's biology. If you want kids, get that done earlier or it becomes risky past 35.

Not everything is because of "the patriarchy" or lizard people or chemtrails you paranoid fucking idiot.

Wow how terrible that he has entirely woman coworkers. HOW HORRIBLE that they all are dedicating their lives to taking care of people. I really feel for him. I will pray that he (and OP) can get back to his male-dominated comfort zone eventually.

Came here to say this. SO engrossing because the main character is so different from anyone I’d read about before.

Wow this is terrible to hear. I'm moving directly from Ukrainian village in Chicago, the new Fulton market area in terms of innovative restaurants. Ugh the comment about food... I suspected but I'm not surprised by your comment. Chicago is the food capital of the US according to Bon Appetite, haha! Sure disappointing considering I'm literally blocks away from famous chefs and up coming restaurants.

If you live in Burlington, Waterbury, Montpelier, and a couple other larger places, the food is actually fantastic. Local, fresh, and creative. I've eaten some of the best meals I've ever had in Vermont.

There’s not a thing wrong with Sweetwaters. The food is good, the portions are decent (the $10 nachos are big enough for a meal), the tap selection is good-not-great, but if you’re with a group, chances are everyone will find something they like.

IMO Sweetwaters competes with Ken's for worst-food-on-church. Both are bland and boring food you could get anywhere.

For a while now my passion and main hobby in life has been cooking and baking. I am thinking hard about what I want to do with my life and feel like professional cooking could be something I would be very happy doing for a long time. My problem is that I have no experience and no idea where to start. Should I go for a dishwashing position and just hope they give me menial prep tasks? How do you get initial experience in the kitchen without spending tens of thousands on culinary school? I am a woman in my early twenties if that helps (cause it also seems like my gender could work against me here).

We were naked on the couch, she was sitting on my lap facing me. I reached to throw a pillow off the couch... When I was half turned she blurted out "snail trail" while she propped her self up and dragged her cooch from my armpit to my hip.

Yep she sounds like a keeper

Why does he need to concentrate so hard for such simple movements tho

Was it good when you were in it?

That genre sounds more akin to what we play. I’m glad things are getting better; maybe we could be a part of that? Kind of sad it’s so into funk and jam though, that’s really weird and unexpected.

Also I just got the offer so if we move I’m up for starting an indie-band clique :D

see more

I'll second that Burlington is very into jam band-y funk and psychedelic stuff. Its because about half of Burlington's population are into weed and just slightly fewer are into acid.

It's not all bad though, if you play indie or folk. I live with an indie band who have gotten pretty popular over the last year or so and they play around town and in Montreal at least 3 or 4 times per month. You definitely NEED to be a networker to play paying gigs, however.

Original Poster1 point · 3 months ago

Ok, that’s super helpful!!! It’d be so awesome to play in Montreal. And the weed/acid situation isn’t really a turn off for us lol, I guess it just has downsides in this case.

My fiancé isn’t a networker but I am, so I think that will work out.

What’s the band you live with? I’ll check them out.

Also we are officially moving at the end of March!!!

They’re called Gestalt! They have a facebook page with a few recordings but they’re waiting to put most of their stuff online until they finish their album.

And congrats on the move!
