  1. I, too, am back briefly to clean up anything I may have inadvertently contributed. It feels like going back "home", driving past your old house and looking to see what changes have occurred, reliving memories, looking to see if old neighbors might still be there and outside for a quick chat. I'm so sorry, SWB, for this mess. I'll help in whatever way I can.
  2. Has a thread been started or a group on those who are attending this convention in April? Usually there is a thread about meeting up with SWB/JW. We haven't been able to go in the last 2 years, but this year it looks like we'll be going; I just didn't want to miss an opportunity to meet up with more WTM'ers. So can you either point me in the direction of the thread/group or use this as the thread to start a poll of who is going?
  3. Head over there for more discussions. I had questions, but didn't want to post them here when that social group was once active. Hope to see you over there!
  4. At first I was getting upset that these characters, whom we have grown to love for the most part, are now turning evil. If that is indeed the case, then I will truly be bummed. However, I also had to remind myself that because we've "known" these characters over the past few years, perhaps we shouldn't misjudge them, but let their "character" (LOL) speak for itself. There have been plenty of times in the past where Sayid has done something "evil" with the *intent* of discovering the good. Or perhaps, with the intent of discovering the *truth* would be more accurate. Kate and Sawyer have do
  5. What about French Lick? That is supposed to be very nice. I haven't been but know many who have.
  6. Hello everyone! It's been a long time since I've been on the boards! I thought I would stop by and say hello to anyone who might remember me and also to ask a question. Afterall, you ladies (and men) truly are the best source for advice on certain subjects. First though, I'll just quickly update you on my life. Since I was last on the boards my dh had just accepted a job in a completely new field after having been unemployed for 6 months. With this new job came a 30% reduction in income because he was starting over in careers. This has *not* been an easy transition for our family. Because
  7. The blood test is called a Mono Spot test. It's a finger prick and takes 5 min. to get the results. They failed to tell me this until AFTER they put me in surgery to biopsy the swollen lymph node I had. When the pathology report came back as positive for Epstein Barr and Cytomegalovirus, then they informed me of that test. Nice, huh?:001_rolleyes:
  8. You know, there was a time when I was really into high-priced makeup. I used Bobbi Brown and MAC almost exclusively, but I also liked mascara from Lancome, tried Prescriptives and Philosophy.... But three kids later, and 2 different job losses for my dh and I just don't have the money for that kind of stuff anymore. But my desire to look nice and "real" hasn't changed. With that in mind, I have recently been using L'Oreal's mineral makeup (Bare Naturale) which I buy at CVS. I have the mineral concealer which I use under my eyes, the mineral powder foundation and the mineral powder blush.
  9. I see, all too regularly, the words happy and birthday capitalized. Is this correct? A birthday is not a holiday, nor is happy birthday a title. So my assumption was that if I wrote "Happy birthday, Sally!", then I would only be capitalizing "happy" because it's at the beginning of the sentence. However, cards will capitalize both words (Happy Birthday!). So which is correct?
  10. My thought is that when Juliet hit the bomb, it *did* explode (thus the "it worked" comment), but at the same time, they time-traveled (thus the white light, the ringing in the ears and the comment from Jin that they time traveled because it had happened to him before). Therefore, they are both in 2004 (in LA), AND in present time, which makes sense that they are ON the island (the time travel) AND that it's under water (because of the explosion). I understood interactions on the plane to be different than another poster on here, but it's because I assumed, which one should never do with
  11. I know there are a ton of books out there on this subject, so to some, the suggestion I'm going to give may seem funny or even offensive and ill-favored. But I really, really liked Leon Uris' "Exodus". It's historical fiction, but I thought Leon did a really great job of giving the history of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict -the fighting over Israel getting part of Palestinian land for their own after the Holocaust. However, since it was written in the late 50's I believe, it does not give the reasons for modern day conflict, just the roots (which is important obviously). And since i
  12. I don't, but I suppose I could. At church a few weeks ago, the youth were in charge of the service. The Youth Minister stood up and asked for "anyone part of the education system to stand up" so they could be prayed over. I didn't stand up. The lady next to me, also a friend, leaned in and said, "you ARE the education system". I chuckled, but it didn't occur to me until later that she was telling me I needed to stand up. *shrug*. Those things don't occur to me. Probably because I think of what I do as my responsibility of a mother. Sure, mothers wear many hats, but that's what I think
