Ha. I grew up in California. I lost count of the number of earthquakes that I have been through over the years living in both Northern and Southern California. I have a big tub of "Earthquake Glue" from those days and I still use it even though I don't live in earthquake country anymore. It is clear gummy putty that you form a ball with and then stick your decorative vase/sculpture to your shelf so that it does not fall down in an earthquake. Tested and proved. It WORKS! When you want to remove your item, you slice it off with dental floss. As to your question, open shelving is ugly and impractical. [ Reply | More ]

I just pulled out my massive ancient tub (it must date back to the 1980s). It's called Quake Wax by Conservation Materials, Ltd. and it says it is the wax used by museums. Removable, glue-like bond. A custom blend of microcrystalline waxes formulated to anchor your collectibles. Googling reveals that this exact product no longer exists, but here is the modern day replacement.

It was incredibly hot and fun while it was going on…we did it in his office one day during work. Large office/couch. Ended not well. My prior boyfriend really wanted to get back together and I ended it. Then I overheard him calling my boss (she answered her line on the receptionist phone outside my office)…saying he was not coming in and this was during a major important work week…and I was certain he told her on the phone what when on between us. I was fairly young at the tim and went into her office and said "I know you know it's me " and for a second she was like? What? And then her eyes opened wide and she said …OMG it's you? Do you know he wanted to marry you? I was in shock about the marriage part (he apparently was designing a ring) and pissed at myself for speaking up ...I just could not take the thought of being in meetings with her with the elephant in the room….and I also probably selfishly wanted to appear a stronger person….like even though me and him are melting down, I'm still here at work doing my job. I did not directly report to him -- however he was one of the most senior people on my team and he could ask me to do work if needed. I would only do if you are OK with leaving the job. Which I did a short time after. Why is this an affair for you vs. dating? One of you or both are married? [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Not writing for flames or eye rolls but, I pushed a friend away because her DH hit on me, and I'm sure he did it because he could tell I was attracted to him.I just can't deal with the guilt. I didn't act on it, absolutely nothing happened, I just feel I am a bad person. She's really lovely, and I could use a good girlfriend, but I think I need to do a slow fade because I don't need the drama. Anyone else btdt? Did you feel the fade was the best decision? 22 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I don't think I "did" anything, just as I got to know them both, I felt there was an attraction, over time, not immediately, just the interaction feels different. I could be wrong of course. [ Reply | More ]

It depends on how he hit on you. Was it flirting or did he flat out ask you to have an affair? I would lose a friendship over flirting. [ Reply | More ]

No, he was not that blatant. More made a comment like "if it was you instead of her"... and sort of waited for my reaction, which was , none because I was bamboozled. Flat out asking would have made my decision a lot more seamless. [ Reply | More ]

OP: Bingo. Yes. That's part of my discomfort. She's well aware he's like this. And I think they are having problems- she's alluded to it. Now though that she has confided in me she is reaching out to me more for support, which makes me feel even worse. In some ways I feel kind of used, like I would be a great way for him to spite her if he could seduce me. I know that sounds wacko. Hence why I need to dial down the drama. It's just a weird gut feeling I have. [ Reply | More ]

It doesn't sound wacko -- I'm sure you're right. If you can get a handle on your attraction to him (and he sounds like a jerk btw so that must help) -- fade on him and not her -- that would be best. If not, yes, fade from both. [ Reply | More ]

Why not just make her a friend that you meet for lunch during the week with or get manicures with? Slow fade hurts, especially if she is going through a hard time. Stay way from her DH though. He sounds like trouble... [ Reply | More ]

I would still be friends with her but I would make sure I never came in contact with her husband (soon to be ex-husband) again. If she asked why, I'd tell her, but I wouldn't say a thing until she pressed me. That may never happen, so worry about it when the time comes. Good friends are hard to find. It's not your fault the guy is a dawg. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I went to an indian festival in the northwest once and they were roasting salmon on alder skewer-things over a fire-pit, and it was delicious. And it makes me wonder, why hasn't a high-end NYC restaurant built a fire-pit thing yet to serve up traditional-style roast salmon? I bet that would make a lot of money. It could be a rooftop-style restaurant with the smoke vented out of the top. 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
