Very impressed you folks had the stamina (cough) to keep the "ask a girl" thread rolling, nice work.

Also it's a little weird how many threads I post in that H. Pro also posts in. #oldpeoplegaf

Bit of a random question, but did any of you ladies play Destiny a fair amount? I did in the beginning but didn't play with randoms a lot, so I didn't get much of a feel for the community. I'm pretty psyched about Destiny 2 and I was wondering if the community is toxic at all. I'll be playing on PS4. None of my friends play anymore so I'll be starting off alone, but I saw there were some ladies only clans so I might join one. I'm kinda terrified about playing with random dudes online these days.

I only played the first one a little because the lack of story really killed it for me. I'll probably pick up 2 just because it's something to do.

Yeah, the story in the original before the expansions was pretty rough. I read that the expansions fixed that, for the most part, so I have high hopes for Destiny 2.

Yeah, like others I found the game really thin, but I did play a lot with friends for a while. I never engaged chat with randos. I felt like it wasn't necessary for strikes, but then, I wasn't doing the big raids either. I'm sure it would be there.

The group I'm in isn't regional. It's just called Modcloth BST, but I am guessing there are probably multiple FB groups with the same name. I can PM you the link if you'd like!

In other news, a dude walked up to the counter today and asked if I wanted any Skittles and held out his hand which was indeed filled with the candy. Lolwut. I just smiled and said no thanks xD At least the Skittles smelled better than the computer that caught on fire. >~>

Military is still largely male, but, with the exception of physical fitness standards, preaches equality to an almost nauseating degree. And EO cases are handled with extreme prejudice. I understand this is a VERY recent development however and the WAVES and WINS and the other women who predated me had it MUCH worse. Tailhook for example. Still, the modern day environment is really positive. To the consternation of certain groups of course. There are definitely those who lament the old days.

Not really threadworthy on its own, but we're about to go across country for what will probably be our last chance to visit our Australian side of the family for the next 2 years (because the pregnancy will be too far along for me to fly and then we'll have a newborn + Mia), and our beloved cat had to be taken to the vet for an emergency weekend visit because he got another UTI. Basically, the vet says he has a 50-50 shot to live at best if it happens again and that's IF the cat minders even notice in time. The idea of him passing while we're not here is devastating. If it wasn't impossible, I wish we could just cancel everything. Now we get to spend over a month abroad wondering if he'll still be here when we get back.

I don't think either my husband or myself have slept more than a handful of hours the last couple of nights. The poor boy has to have his cone of shame on or he'll lick his bits and make it even worse, and he just looks so miserable. You can hear him donking his way around corners or into door frames. When he does finally make his way onto the bed at night, my husband's so desperate to make him feel better he just pets him and does everything he can to help him get comfortable. He even sat up with him for an hour so that he could have the cone off and get some rest...at 4am.

Thanks, Soul. I'm having them both over on Monday to walk them through stuff, and I don't doubt their responsibleness/responsiveness for pets in need, but the thought of him shaking in pain unable to pee like he did before for hours while he waits for their night visit fills me with awfulness. We're trying to get one of Leigh's coworkers to just take Pod to their place for the whole time, but it's a huge ask. And it's not like they don't have to go to work too. I wish we could just bring him. Why Australia has to have the strictest rules...

Thanks, ShyMel. Hoping he improves significantly this week so we can at least leave with a little hope.

Thanks, Fox. They do send pics and weekly updates on how they're doing. If they're amendable, I'll definitely ask for more, though. I don't care if they think we're crazy. If they knew how much his vet, special diet, pills, and how much it cost to fly him over here was, they'd definitely think so. :P

Thanks, chica. It's really put a dampener of everything. I've had pets all my life, but he's one of a kind, and my husband absolutely dotes on him. I always knew it was going to be heartbreaking when he did go (he's an old boy that we rescued because he was a senior cat at the shelter so it's not like we weren't eventually expecting it), but not being there when he does is unthinkable. I know it's silly to feel so terrible when he's still here and seems to be doing better, but the very idea is tearing me up. I'm sure I can blame the hormones for some of that, though. :P

Thanks, T. He seems perfectly energetic and healthy otherwise, so I'm trying to be more hopeful, but it just all goes downhill so quickly when it does strike. :( Anyway, we'll just try to get him back to fighting shape before we go. And, of course you can post. It's pests, inappropriate posts, and etc. that we prefer don't.

It sounds like he's doing better, but man, I can only imagine how much that must be weighing on you. I love my cat so, so much and my heart hurts every time I think about losing her (she's 12 so she's getting up there.) I hope his health keeps improving and that you get lots of adorable updates while you're gone. <3

Schizz is really good peoples, though we're always slandering each other in the BCT Discord xD

Only reason I choose to spell my name like this is because 1) Phoenix was already taken , 2) Amerie's record label spells it like this so I chose this spelling.

And not Canadian

I'm so sorry to hear that, sounds rough. I can't imagine how hard that must be to be away.

Kinda related story. As a kid we had got a third little cute kitten, Sophia, to our family. We were so happy to have Sophia, it was really comforting to have cats in the house, especially this one. But, one day, the wild cat that frequented our house killed Sophia, because we forgot to lock the backdoor. I remember hear Sophia scream. I couldn't handle it. I was really sad...
