I just learned about this site so I can't speak for the quality of the products, but I like the concept. They sell chocolate and the profits go to animal rescue.

My dog Bucky died in January, I got a new puppy unexpectedly two and a half weeks ago, and last week we discovered we have bedbugs.
So we're sleeping on an air mattress in the living room with everything from the bedroom in huge black plastic sealed bags. The puppy loves tormenting the cats, who love running across my desk in a whirl of paper.
Calgon, take me away!

I'm so pleased to have found this! I couldn't quite believe HHOW had just disappeared into the ether.....

At approximately the same time Paula Deen was being (rightfully) censured for her racist statements and behavior, Alex Baldwin and his wife attended James Gandolfini's funeral. When a British reporter noted that Hilaria Baldwin had several tweets posted during the funeral (probably, it turned out, announcements that were pre-set to be sent at a specific time), his reaction was to fire off a series of homophobic tweets aimed at the reporter, announce that he fired his publicist (presumably for not preventing him from doing so), then deleting his twitter account (again.)
So, for the past two months, every time I've come across Alec Baldwin's name, I've wondered why Paula Deen gets condemned for being a racist but he gets a pass for being a homophobe?

Vicodin, it's so ironic that so many of us that used to post there (and like me stopped ages ago because of life interfering), have started posting again now that it's in its eleventh hour. In a strange way this show did a lot for me - it was there when I realized I didn't want to continue as a music teacher, and it gave me an outlet to be creative in still while looking to change careers. It also guided me to find a new career in nursing (which I'm still looking for ironically though I've finished the RN-BSN degree). In fact, a good almost 10 years of my life is documented over there in one way or another; though I was sad to discover just now that all those threads we had at TWoP are now gone, aside from the general gabbery thread for the show. NBCU must have deleted the rest after the show ended (shows how much I posted there with HHoW being open instead).
I know most of the mods are allowing people to post where they are moving to over there. I'll let the other mods here and direct people over this way if they haven't already.
