When my ex and I split, I lost zero friends. In fact, I had a gain of 1 because one of my friends hated him so much she and I had basically stopped speaking. Not directly because of him, but we drifted apart and didn’t try to stop it.

I suppose that indicates just about everything you need to know about why our relationship broke, doesn’t it. How did we lead such separate lives as to have no mutual friends?

Heh, guess I wasn’t the only one that saw the insane dentist story. I still feel bad for that guy. I hope she gets a lot of jail time.

Seriously. I say, eye for an eye here. Or make that tooth for a tooth. Seriously, what a fucking psycho batshit crazy bitch… Hell, cut off her lips while your at it. Oh, and her nose as well.

As stupid as going to your ex to get dental work done is (I personally already have enough anxiety going to the dentist, I wouldn’t trust the ex I just broke up with to be with someone else to be very gentle with me!) who does that? That lady is just crazy.

I saw that video yesterday and it had me laughing. They are definitely cute. I hope I don’t ever go 25 years without kissing my husband though!

I heard about the losing 8 friends on the radio the other day. At first I thought it was a lot, but I lost a little more than that with my ex. And it was really hard adjusting after that.

When I saw the story about the Polish guy who got his teeth pulled out by his ex, I thought it was a little funny (though the situation is definitely horrible) cause I have the same last name (though mine has been Americanized) and I knew there was a guy with the same name in my family over there in that city so I mentioned it to my dad. And it turns out he actually is a very distant relative of mine. Such a small world.

This video makes me smile! I love cute elderly couples. The person who sent this video in to Wendy must be really amazing, and good looking. :)
