I really want to eat more vegetarian. It's hard to convince the other person in my household, though. Still. Working on it. Continually working on it.

Normally, I'm down with The Last Psychiatrist but I think that post was ultra venomous... I could be reading into it because I am feeling horribly rage-y this afternoon. In any case, I personally think any woman who rejects an engagement ring should be slapped, though I take the point that the man should be slapped just as much for being so incredibly oblivious to the kind of person he's with.

And when it comes right down to it, I'm also probably a little bit snotty about how much that stuff doesn't matter to me - i.e., I had no engagement ring at all and I never minded. *Sniff*

Um, welcome back! ;P ♥♥

I actually agree with you on The Last Psychiatrist and his tone. But the message of that post was a good one, and I thought it was worth putting up with some tone to get at it. But yeah, he could have written it more invitingly.

Thanks as always for your thoughts Melissa!!
