My Face Hurts

Wow, being sick and being in weddings really takes up a lot of time! This weekend was my first time being "in" a wedding. Even though I was a little nervous about properly fulfilling my bridesmaids' duties, I have to say, I was most apprehensive about the bachelorette party. I was prepared to lie my way through "I Never" or something else equally embarrassing, but it was actually quite fun. Going out with a big group of girls is definitely something I don't do enough, and that I miss from college. Even though there were many penis-themed accessories in attendance, that's not nearly enough to make me uncomfortable. And really, at this point in my life, "What do you do?" is a much more terrifying question than "Do you have a boyfriend?" or whatever other love-life inquisitions people could cook up.

Also-- If you're like me and still can't figure out how to watch TV shows illegally online, you may want to know that the second season of Dexter is finally available on DVD. I've seen the first 3 episodes, and it's not giving much away to say that it's already obvious that sex is going to be introduced. Which is fine, but it doesn't seem like the most realistic set-up. Pardon my ignorance, but what are British people doing in Miami?

I actually enjoy the "I Never" game at those parties. I'm not ashamed to say "I never" did a lot of things- and it's kinda cool if I find another girl who never did either.
I remember asking a friend "So... how do you get from kissing to that?!" just after she got married. Her answer wasn't helpful though. She just said "Oh, it's actually easy. Once you get in the mood, you just... go with it."
Uh huh... right...

For the illegal watching of tv shows, try http://www15.alluc.org/alluc/tv-shows.html

Not all the links work, and I can't make any guarantees about viruses, but it is easily browse-able!

I guess *someone* has to like "I Never", but you're the first person I've heard admit it, K! Kudos :-)
And Kim, thank you, I've actually tried Alluc--but the videos are so grainy I don't know what's going on. Is that just what illegal TV-watchers have to deal with?

I guess. Although with the rate we're improving technology, I'm sure someone will figure out how to get a high-quality bootleg.

When I want to watch TV shows that I can buy at my local pirated DVD shop, I just download them using bit torrent. Unfortunately, I think that's actually illegal in the US. It might be illegal here in China, but the government very ostentatiously doesn't care.

The idea behind "I Never" seems to me to be revealing secrets. I have issues with this because I assume that people are keeping certain information secret for a reason, and that I should respect that.

I actually like "I never" because I'm proud of all the things I have not done that other people have :)
