[ - ] Just watched this most interesting wedding of two doctors on TV. Bride is Korean, Groom is Indian. The ceremony was in the Korean tradition, with Korean dress. Afterwards, the bride changed into a sari and the reception was Indian, with Indian food and music. Just thought I'd throw that out there since I've never seen something like that. 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

If it's real bash with loads of people, I don't think you will be missed that much and can gracefully bow out by saying you have horrible morning sickness. If the bash is really only 5 -10 people, be the first one there and have a non-alcoholic drink, stay an hour or when everyone starts to annoy you and then leave. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Opinions needed. Three years ago we moved to NYC and just before we did, we purchased a TV for about $3K (didn't know we were moving here at the time and couldn't bring it with us). We have lent it to someone while we were here, but are moving home in a few months. Can we ask for it back when we move home? It has been lent to someone who really doesn't have a lot of money to spend $3K on a TV and while we are comfortable, we are not rich, but are perceived as being so in comparison to this person. Fwiw, the person who has borrowed it has never indicated that they saw it as anything other than a loan. 10 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Look at the FAQ on the website: The Department of Education (DOE) is considering a proposal to relocate PS 452 to a new elementary school building located at 210 West 61st Street at Amsterdam Avenue. The building currently houses PS191. However, PS 191 is planned to move to a new site at West 61st St and West End Avenue in the Fall of 2018. PS 452 would only move to the building if and when PS 191 moves. If the relocation happens, it would entail the move of PS 452’s administration, staff and students, and only PS 452 would then occupy that building." [ Reply | More ]

I'm an introvert who is a child of an extrovert. Parties are exhausting and not as meaningful for us as they are for you. A special event with a friend or two will be much more memorable for your DC. Go see a sports event, or a show, or a movie. Your DC will thank you. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] We absolutely love our apartment. It's pretty big, great kitchen, great location, we put a lot of time and money into it, etc. Just found out I'm pregnant with another girl (we have 2 boys and 1 girl right now). It's 3 bedrooms. Do we need to move? It has 3 bedrooms so 2 would share each. They are big-ish bedrooms and the apartment is about 2200 sq ft. Would you stay in the city? I don't want to move but I'm just not sure how crazy 4 int he city would be. Anyone BTDT? Thanks! 26 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Are kids today even aware of Tiffany? I ask in all seriousness. The whole idea might be lost if they don't know what it is.

I helped him buy the bracelet and then she broke up with him 6 months later to date her manager at McDonald's. [ Reply | More ]
