    It’s more like a fib than a lie, Cheney. And to the babysitter, not you. Hey, why am I sticking up for Elise like this? Don’t try to get out of doing your homework, Elise! There, that’s more like it. 🙂 Enjoy your Thursday reading about some big calamity wiping us out. Zero degrees with double-digit-below wind chill here tonight, too. BRRRRRRRRR.

            That explains it. When I lived in a trailer that I rented from my sister I tried to make sure that the bunting or whatever you call that stuff that hangs underneath was always tight to keep the critters away from the pipes underneath. I did not always win that battle.

      Omg yea I loved that show. I just started watching Black Mirror this morning and I’m so sad there are only 6 episodes 🙁

      And yea, i googled it and it’s sad how common and normal lying is. Guess that is a part of life and parenting!

            haha you know i dont know how but i missed that one, i found it though and got as far as the request lol, then started to fall asleep so its on hold, will watch this week. I didn’t like the one where they had the prisoner, the woman who had killed a girl with her boyfriend, so they drugged her or smoething and made her feel she was in back not being a prisoner and had no idea where she was or what she had done and weird people were chasing her, remember that?
