  1. Congratulations to all the winners and nominees. Your vast talent is amazing, and your undying support for all other writers and artists is beautiful.
  2. I just read the club, Pulse, was started in part as a response to the owner's loss of her brother to AIDS. She wanted to perpetuate his heartbeat...his Pulse...in the people who would frequent the club. The business has also promoted outside of LGBT causes, including breast cancer awareness. Taking my son into church this morning, we were talking about the shooting. I said we should pray for all those who lost their lives in the early hours of the day today. My beautiful 12-year-old baby said, "And their families." God's words out of the mouths of babes. #PrayforOrlando
  3. Yes, although they refer to them as "gift cards," and more often than not are essentially a pre-loaded debit card. Most of the major franchises have this option, and many of the non-franchised restaurants do as well. Hope this helps!
  4. I am so sorry to hear of your beloved pet's passing, @mphs95. Abbey Road was obviously very much a part of your family and well loved. May she continue to live on in your heart.
  5. I'm so sorry this happened to you! I think it is awful that someone could be hateful about someone else's hard work. If your story wasn't something they wanted to read, why do so in the first place? It strikes me that some people, unfortunately, are only happy in tearing down what someone else has built. In this case, something that you built from within yourself. I believe is says far more about that reviewer than it does you. I'm glad you took down the review. Continue to be strong, @karyshamy. As my mother would say, "Consider the source..."
  6. A request, please, for thoughts and prayers from the many here of such strong faith... There was a series of senseless shootings approximately 3 hours ago near to my hometown. Small town Kansas; the kind of place you wouldn't think of this sort of thing happening. Further proof it can happen anywhere. Prayers, please, for the injured, for the dying, and for all the families involved. May God be with one and all. Thank you. God Bless. #HesstonStrong #PrayForHesston
  7. Like shamour, I have come to enjoy AU stories as well. I believe what constitutes AU, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. Similarly, what may interest one individual to read, may completely be off-putting to another. In general, as both a writer and a reader, I believe you write what you are compelled to write. Hazelra, you and I have discussed your interest in history many times, and I am thrilled that this idea has burgeoned within you. I shall be equally thrilled to read the outcome. Looking forward to your next story, then...
  8. Further proof that, like Stephen, I can't keep out of a good fight... I will pose the following, in a less philosophical answer than I think you are seeking. Approximately three years ago, the three doctors in our office (all female) posed for pictures for our website. Did we choose to wear lab coats, and forego makeup and hair? Not by a long shot. We spoke with the professional photographer in advance, determined a color and wardrobe scheme that would be most flattering, and I even scheduled an appointment with my cosmetologist prior to the appointment (because I can never get my hair
  9. I heard about this terrible loss on NPR as I was driving 2 1/2 hours from work today to where I am staying tonight for a meeting tomorrow. I am glad I had a chance to mourn this on my own. To know that wonderful voice has been forever stilled. To know from now on I will only be able to hear him read Shakespeare in previous recordings. To know the sexy sneers of Hans Gruber and Severus Snape (different characters, yes... but same bad-boy-silently-calls-girl-come-hither attraction) are left only to the archives of DVD. And further from the interview on NPR, Helen Miren said Alan was a
  10. Read and reviewed... I eagerly await the next two updates you promise! The reviews system with FF appears to be down, so I shall have to post it here to make certain you see it: Happy Birthday!
  11. @Stephen Hawking: My mother is English by birth, raised the first 26 years of her life there, and I had to look this idiom up! I had not heard this one before! Instead, I would suggest try "talking a mile a minute" for a more American feel, to describe an overly talkative person, especially someone who is doing so in an overexcited or over emotional state. I hope this helps!
  12. First, my thanks to @nibbler747 for inviting me to come and read this thread. It has been a fascinating read, and confirmed my thoughts about not only feminism, but sexism (not in the negative connotation; merely the differences between gender roles) and society in general. Essentially, there is no right answer. There is only what an individual is created from (nature, or biology) and what that same individual has experienced (nurture). @jenafan: I applaud your great openness and honesty, both from the perspective of starting this thread, and from your very personal history you have revea
  13. Overall, I thought this was an excellent episode, and the scenes leading up to the bedroom showcasing Sheldon's nervousness (contract, anyone?), followed by those in the bedroom with Amy's nervousness were superb. Mayim deserves the Emmy for her few lines in that room. Jim, for "We'll learn together." Complete bliss for me as a viewer. And Koothrapali stole the show when he channeled Amy: "I don't think I'll be able to walk." I laughed the loudest tonight at that line! But I'll admit... Even though I know it was most likely related to time issues for the editors... I was sorry to see
  14. I'm supposed to be "better behaved," and set an example. Let's pretend we know better...
  15. Hazelra: I think traffic stats are down with FF, period. It's not you, girl! Drat... I have (sadly, legitimate) work to do before I can go read this... but will make sure I do before the end of the evening!
