So, as a pregnant woman, I've been told to get a flu shot (and the TDAP). I asked my OB if I would get it from him or if I should just go to CVS or the like. He said, CVS is fine. So tonight, I try at Costcto, which is the cheapest for both shots by far. But the first Costco said they didn't have a TDAP safe for… » 10/23/14 8:27pm Thursday 8:27pm

Exactly. I've had some great experiences on Frontier in the past, but I booked my mom on a flight this past summer and discovered they put her in a non-reclining seat. It wasn't the last row, it wasn't near the exit row, it just didn't recline. It was like a penalty for not paying the extra $8 per flight to pick a… » 10/23/14 12:06pm Thursday 12:06pm

During one of my last semesters of grad school, Cal State Fullerton added a similar convenience fee, so no more rewards points for paying my tuition. But five years later, my husband's school (Cal State Dominguez Hills) still hasn't instituted a convenience fee. Same system, different rules. » 10/15/14 9:30am 10/15/14 9:30am

I'll admit, I'm actually going out a little more now (9 weeks left) than I did before because I know how little I'll be going out in the future. This fetus really likes to get out of the house; she loves concerts and football games especially. But the eating thing is beyond stupid. Personally, the only thing I "crave'… » 10/03/14 2:01pm 10/03/14 2:01pm

I'd rather have my husband's last name that that of my good-for-nothing step-father that legally adopted me when I was 10. Luckily, my mom wised up a couple years later and kicked his ass to the curb, but she kept his name. Before that, I had the last name of my bio dad, who I have never met. Seriously, my husband's… » 9/26/14 7:24pm 9/26/14 7:24pm

That sounds wonderful. I'm 30 weeks right now and I make a point of getting up early enough to have a leisurely bowl of cereal with banana slices and a cup of coffee while I read the internet for half an hour. I would do the egg thing but they are on my food aversion list, which sucks because I used to want them… » 9/22/14 3:10pm 9/22/14 3:10pm

My male OBGYN has a female NP and I just hate seeing her. She's so judgmental and condescending. I'm 35 years old, I don't need to be told how to eat healthily during my pregnancy. She also told me I should only be gaining 0.5 pound/week during my second trimester and I'd gained 3 in four weeks so I really needed to… » 9/17/14 7:55pm 9/17/14 7:55pm

I do this too, even when I've just watched too match British television. It sticks around a few days. I never really had a southern accent though I lived in the south till I was six and my midwestern accent (Ohio from 6 to 17) went away pretty quickly when I moved to southern California though it took 10 years to… » 9/09/14 11:23pm 9/09/14 11:23pm

I'd have to say ebay; I bought most of my graduate school textbooks there, the international edition that was really the same as what the bookstore carried. Usually, the books were printed more cheaply but all the same information was there. And it usually didn't take any longer to arrive from India or China that… » 9/04/14 11:06am 9/04/14 11:06am
