R27, I just watched a spot on The Food Network about a Vegan "Butcher/Deli" owner. They're basically forming protein concoctions into meat-like shapes, giving it a similar flavor and then slicing it up, the same as you would meat. I suppose it's for the person on Vegan diet who still craves meat.

I have a relative who's a Vegetarian. She's at the point where she doesn't want to eat anything that even tastes similar to meat. Says even the illusion makes her ill.

I spent my entire adult life priding myself on being "just like everyone else" & "one of the guys". No gay bars, prides or circuit parties for me! Never had a serious boyfriend or partner, only flings. [My own doing.] Never even had a platonic gay friend to relate to, all (seemingly) straight dudes. [Also, my own doing.]

Now I'm a lonely 40 year old eating Fruit Gushers & doing (endless) stacks of paperwork from behind a laptop in my cheap hotel room. I did everything I could (in my power) to not offend & possibly be rejected by others. Ultimately I was rejected & left behind anyway. I haven't a single friend or family member I can call just to cheer me up. I have NOTHING but a thankless, ungratifying career.

If any young person out there is feeling unsure about their sexuality/true self, let my pathetic existence be a lesson for you. NEVER LET HOW YOU THINK OTHERS WILL PERCEIVE YOU PREVENT YOU FROM LIVING YOUR LIFE OR ESTABLISHING ONE FOR YOURSELF! Because your so-called "Family & Friends" sure in the hell won't!

I went into the office today. It was nice to see some people I haven't seen since either late last year or before we went into lockdown mode. It's kind of funny how many people are now saying they can see themselves coming into the office on a more regular basis. We moved earlier this month so we're all getting used to our new cubes and surroundings.

Also, interesting to see how many of us gained a few "pandemic pounds." One of the guys is tall (a former model, not famous), and, in my opinion, was underweight. He now has a little belly.

To stay with the underwhelmingness of the thread, we have no salt and pepper in our new office! I will need to buy some personal shakers for my use.

Admittedly, round cookies lack any sort of visual je ne sais quoi. But I figured they would be less whelming than having your friends think you're trying to palm off four-month-old cookies on them. But if your creativity can turn reindeer into a non-related species, I say go for it.

r56 Never! I bought a 3.5 pound 32" long axe and chopped it out with flip flops on. Almost chopped my foot off at one point. It was surprisingly dangerous, large flying splinters too. And a hand blister.

So for another tree on property I also need goggles, steel tip boots, and might as well go full tight jeans (Jorts?) and flannel shirt and maybe a sharp yellow helmet. Still cheaper than renting a stump grinder, and I get to keep the costume.

It was maybe 12 feet tall, the stump was maybe two feet wide, no biggie, took two days, maybe three hours. I had to chop wood as a kid, and I'm still pretty good with an axe after a 35 year break. It's like hitting a baseball.

I did not get all the root out, but mulched over it and it's gone. In retrospect, I would recommend this to nobody, and I'm sure the stump grinder is the way to go. I just wanted to buy an axe.

The dentist was great but when he was drilling the upper molar, the drill was resting on the gum on my lower teeth. Now I have this intermittent, stabbing pain in my neck. I'm not sure if they're related but I have a cleaning on the 18th at the same place. I also have a Dr's appointment on Friday. I'll mention it to her and see what she says.

Eavesdropping On A Neighbor. In my defense, he’s most likely partially deaf and yells into the telephone. He’s also very stupid.

He wants $2,000 of the child tax credit for each of his two children. On his first call, he somehow got connected to a human at the IRS and explained that his girlfriend has six kids and two of them are his. That call did not go well.

He is now yelling at his tax preparer and promising to follow through to get his money that he deserves for these children and they are not being helpful and, no, he does not have documents stating he is head of household because she lives with another guy, and he’s having a tough time living in a shitty apartment building (TRUE, he lives here and has the musical taste of a fourteen year-old boy into white-boy rap). He’s also a gamer and holy fuck, I hate him.

Oh, dear. He’s not actually yelling into the phone and may actually be listening....Now, he’s giving them information. No, I’m not writing down his social security number and I didn’t catch his name. What an asshole.

This doesn’t count as whelming because it’s the second time I’ve heard him try to get money for his poor children.

My job requires me to travel all over the country and when doing so I stay in (2 to 4 star) hotels. It's amazing how any particular hotel chain can be a total rundown dump in one city but a fairly nice property in another city.

Actually, in some cities a hotel brand may be nice in one part of town but a total nightmare in another part of town. Absolutely no consistency whatsoever. It just goes to show that these hotel brands will slap their name on anything with no attention to quality.

R168, you just reminded me of a FWB (Friend With Benefits) that I've had off and on for nearly a decade. A hot vet nurse from NYC. He's only 5'6 but has a smoking hot ripped body and one of the most rotund, fattest, girthiest cocks I've ever had the privilege of having. He's a daily, fanatical juicer. The MF is ALWAYS horny and squirts the thickest, creamiest ropes of cum ever. I never contributed it to his juicing but now it all makes sense!

He's currently upset with me over a silly misunderstanding and we haven't been speaking much over the last few months. I miss him & and I'll be BEGGING his forgiveness TODAY! Thank You!

I want to start dating again, but I feel that in order to have a successful relationship, you need to have everything in your life flowing smoothly. I'm building a small business and I know my income is going to fluctuate, so I am going to wait.

I texted my sister a happy Mother's Day greeting but she probably won't see it. The boomer women in my life rarely look at their phones. She would love if I "picked up the phone" and had a conversation but that's too whelming for me right now – she's a talker. I always have to block out an hour for listening. At least not many replies are required of me (an occasional mm-hmm or oh wow), and I can move around and do other tasks while she talks. Still, I have to be in the mood.

This gay male boomer is the same way. I usually forget to turn my phone back on after a class or lecture, and when I do, I often find a couple of texts and missed calls. I never learned to live on my phone. Anything internet, I'd rather use my computer. Hardly anyone wants to talk on the phone anymore, so I don't feel I'm missing much.

My friends know the best way to reach me is to email me.

by Anonymousreply 176Last Sunday at 9:31 AM

R176 Yes, the boomer ladies I refer to are the same way. Email is good for them, but a phone call is best. Do you enjoy talking on the phone? I'm a late-boomer myself but I did make the switch; I love texting and cringe when an actual call comes in.

Oh, and the gals LOVE Facebook (which I refuse to do).

I like talking on the phone with someone else who likes to talk on the phone. A lot of people don't anymore, so I don't bother. In direct contradiction to the cliche that millennials only text, one of my favorite phone talkers was born in the late '80s. We were on the phone last night for over two hours.

I have another friend I speak with on the phone for an hour or so every week.

Overall, I liked talking on the phone more pre-digital phones. A landline today doesn't have the same sound as a home phone used to, back before we called them landlines.

The smartphone is mostly a machine for texting. I accept that, just as I accept mostly no bookstores, mostly no CD stores, mostly no department stores, and so on. Amazon and Apple uber alles.

My straight friends at 40 are already talking about divorce. The husband works, makes the money, the wife stays home with the kids. The wife feels under appreciated, stuck at home with the kids, especially during the pandemic and then withholds sex. The husband feels he's making all the money and should have the free time to golf and the wife should handle the household. This cliche cycle keeps repeating itself from boomers, to Gen X, to now old millennials or very young Gen X. Like it or not, there are still traditional masculine and feminine roles. It makes me sad to see that this tired trope keeps happening. I can remember my friends in love, having fun. I don't want to see divorces and children dragged this again and again, creating another generation of damaged people.

I have a couple of friends who still like to talk on the phone, but they are also friends who like to talk, if you know what I mean. If I get a call from one of them, or return a call, I can count on being kept on the phone for at least an hour, sometimes two hours. No wonder I prefer emails and texts.

I have to go back to the dentist today at 1:15 pm. I'm not sure if the dentist filled my cavity or if he put so much amalgam on the tooth that he drilled all of it out. The dentist is a rather old man. I've had pain in that tooth for about a week and will be happy to have it finally fixed.

I also have a cleaning scheduled at this same practice. Today's work will determine if they are my new dentist or if I need to keep looking. I loved my former dental practice but they are out of network and charge higher prices for all services. I always wound up paying out of pocket expenses.
