[ - ] I posted earlier today saying "I want a pool of in person friends like the brutally honest, snarky, no-nonsense types I find on UB. Where do I find such friends in real life?" I just came back to the post and find it hilarious that someone wrote "OP sounds like a naive young woman who thinks tattos are 'badass' and drinks heavily. And uses cocaine when she can afford it" I find this funny since I don't ever drink, think tattos are gross, and would never do cocaine and financially support drugs cartels ravaging towns in South America. Curious why someone would think a desire for brutally honest friends would be associated with the behavior np mentioned. 10 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

He is asking for them to stop for a while in respect to the cops who were killed. But it would be outrageous to say that it is wrong for people to protest against police using excessive force in general. The sad thing is that if you weren't such an anti-de Blasio hypocrite, you would probably agree that cops shouldn't use excessive force. It's funny that Republicans only think federal cops shouldn't use excessive force against armed white people shooting at them. But it's okay to use it against unarmed african-americans.

No of course not. You can ask your SIL not to have overnight guests when your kids are around. If she agrees and you find out otherwise you can invoke that as to why you have a trust issue. If she balks that's another reason to keep them at your house. Not a bad idea to show the cousins that there are homes where mom doesn't bring home bed friends. [ Reply | More ]

I agree with this. I don't want most things that people give me. I want to pick out what I wear, including clothes, jewelry, even umbrellas. I want to pick out my own electronics and decorative items. The gifts I like are things that can be used up, things that go away, like soap, food, flowers, candles. Or restaurant or spa services gift certificates. Durable gifts are for children and people who can't afford a new tv (or whatever), and whenever possible, the person getting that kind of gift should pick it out. I want the gift to be wanted and loved. Much easier if the recipient tells you what they want. [ Reply | More ]

You have the 7 of Wands in your past, which indicates that you have worked very hard and fought courageously through past battles. Since you're asking about work, I'm taking this to mean you've been a good and valuable employee. Your present card is the Page of Coins --which is a great sign for new opportunities for wealth and material gain. It likely indicates a new job offer. Your future card is the Ace of Cups, which is a very auspicious card. You're at the start of a new journey relating to spiritual enlightenment and emotional fulfillment (I imagine this is motherhood). I'm happy to say all of these cards look good for you, my dear!

Are you recently married? It looks like money has been a concern of you lately -- not financial troubles, but how to be the best steward of the considerable resources you have available to you. I'm thinking you maybe signed a pre-nup? Your Present card also makes me think you are recently married; that card is The Fool. That's a wonderful card, indicating not foolishness in the way we think of it now, but rather a young person on the start of a new journey that will have many unexpected twists and turns -- some wonderful and some disappointing. Ultimately it'ss an auspicious card because it speaks to the opportunity for personal growth. And your future card is the 3 of Coins, which represents achievement through hard work. It sounds like your marriage - like any -- may have some troubles along the way, but that you and your partner are well-suited for undertaking the journey together and ending up with a satisfying life you've created together.

Regarding your career, it looks like you are coming from a position of strength, having just had a major triumph (6 of Wands). That said, did your ego get the best of you? It looks like your present is influenced by a compromise you have made which has damaged your reputation or alienated some supporters (5 of Swords). It looks like the next phase of your career may involve working independently, perhaps scholarly work? You will be on your own for a while, but this will give you an opportunity to build up a store of expertise and wisdom (the Hermit). [ Reply | More ]

It looks like there has been some happiness and celebration relating to family in the recent past (3 of Cups) -- a wedding or a new baby maybe? And currently you are enjoying some financial prosperity for the first time that allows you to think about expanding your lifestyle, including your generosity to others (6 of Coins). Your Future card is the Knight of Coins, which relates to stepping up to meet a call of duty. I'm gathering that there may be other demands for your money in upcoming months, you may feel compelled to help a family member, to repay an old favor to someone who has helped you in the past, or you may decide to support a philanthropic cause. Ultimately these will NOT interfere with your goal of a new home, it will just be slower in coming than hoped. [ Reply | More ]

In your past is the Ace of Coins, which means that you have undertaken some initiative to improve your material condition -- either financial or physical. Your Present card is the 8 of Coins, which indicates that you are working hard on your goals, and learning the skills necessary for success. If that's not how you feel right now, that's what you can focus on, educating yourself and working diligently on preparing for future challenges. Your future card is the 6 of Swords, which means that you are facing a journey into the unknown, and you will need to use your knowledge and wits.

It looks like in the past you've had a lot of insecurity - not necessarily well-founded, either - about your financial situation. Your card (4 of Coins) indicates that you may have a weakness in feeling envious of others' wealth, and that this has held you back from enjoying your own blessings and creating your own happiness. Your Present card (8 of Cups) depicts a person who is now turning their back on something that was once very important to them. This will lead to you feeling discouraged and depressed. Your outcome card though is the 7 of wands (which is weird because this is like the 3rd time I've drawn that card today I think). The 7 of Wands represents victory. So, regarding your move, be careful to stay focused on your own happiness and that of your family, without comparing yourself to others. Don't give up hope on your dreams, and don't cut yourself off from opportunity because you think you can't achieve what you want. Be on guard against your own negative thoughts. Work carefully and diligently and things will turn out in your favor. Good luck! [ Reply | More ]

You're right. "it is important to note that bed bugs can readily infest vacuums. To reduce the likelihood of the vacuum becoming infested you should choose a vacuum that empties into a vacuum bag instead of a filter. A vacuum bag can be easily disposed of while a filter is difficult to completely empty and eggs can easily lodge in places that you cannot see. Also, avoid using vacuum attachments that have brushes or bristles. Instead use the open end of the hose. Vacuuming up a little bit of talcum/baby powder before you start vacuuming and just after you finish may also help reduce the survival rate of some of the bugs that are vacuumed up. As soon as you are done vacuuming, the vacuum bag should be tied shut in a trash bag and discarded outside of the home. You should also inspect the housing of the vacuum where the bag attaches to the hose as some bugs may escape the vacuum bag. If you have a bagless vacuum, the contents of the canister should be emptied into a trash bag and tied shut. The canister should then be washed to remove any remaining bed bugs or eggs."
