Just wanted to jump on the bandwagon I am 28, married and child free by choice. I find it funny how many of us have cats, I currently have 4 and 1 foster kitty. I wonder if the "no kids" gene is attached to the "cats please" gene...

I usually like kids in small groups in small doses, but most of the time, I have a bigger problem with parents than kids I remember on our honeymoon flight to WDW the little girl behind us, maybe 3-4 years old, was obviously in pain crying and pulling at her ears, after about an hour of this and accepting the parents would or could not help her I turn around and ask the parents if I can give her a snack, I always carry fruit snacks on a plane and after I gave her a pack she was doing much better. I even gave the parents some extra for the flight home. They said that basically they thought that since it was a short flight (3 hours) she could "handle it". Really? Let me pinch your leg over and over for 3 hours and see how you are doing. When my sister and I went to Disney with her son, we had plan a, b, c, d, etc because that's what a responsible parent does, take care of your kid and plan ahead. ok, getting off my soap box now

I have to admit, something my husband and I really enjoy is watching the Jedi Academy show with all the kids, there is always a little one that is REALLY into it and it makes us laugh everytime!

^I couldn't agree more about the parents. We always say that there are no bad children, only bad parents.


I also think it's amusing about the cats.


3-D. I am extremely myopic, thankfully correctable, but I can't really see 3-D. Like the movie is not blurry or anything, but the effects just don't do much for me. What is supposed to be right in your face really just isn't.


Thanks everyone for the good lucks and all!! I think I am really ready for the race. Averaging a 12-14 min mile right now, and I have lost almost 25 lbs since the beginning of Jan!

I actually like interacting with children, and find them fairly amusing. But the lifestyle my boyfriend and I isn't really child-appropriate.

Welcome Erica!!!

We got a "no kids" bandwagon going

I like how you came to the rescue on the plane. I am very surprised the parents did not have snacks! Isn't that a parental requirement! Snacks and a DVD player They should tell people that when leaving the hospital with their newborn.

OMG Kat!!!! That is AMAZING!!!!!!!

I always say sweating like a piggy gets the pounds off quickly! When I started on my diet- the pounds fell off just by doing 20 minutes every day of the Biggest Loser b/c I would sweat like a pig- it feels so good! And it was SO easy- no jumping around etc- just moving around a lot. Bob is the man! I don't like that chick!

Not really that complicated... boyfriend is 60, never had kids, never wanted kids. He works at home, so he'd be the one raising hellions, which he doesn't want to do. Also, we're both in show business, which requires us to be out of the house a lot of nights, at Broadway shows, etc. And we live in a 1BR in Manhattan.

That is the new one on the Boardwalk, right? You'll have to let us know how it is.

They have several different ladies who dance. I think they change day to day, but if you go a few times you get an idea of who to expect where & when.
MoRockin is Great -- I got my Belly Dance teacher hooked on them too.

I only get that on Wednesdays when I work at home. This morning he didn't even roll out of bed until about 10 minutes before I was leaving for the office. I have to confess I'm a bit envious of being able to sleep late every day. But I figure he should enjoy while he can... he'll be back to the grind soon enough hopefully.

Welcome! You'll see we are mostly harmless to ourselves & others!

I love the "cats please" theory.... wonder if we could get a govt. grant to do a study on that?

Hey, a fellow New Englander...
You getting hammered by the snow too?

On the good front... I heard a Red Wing Blackbird this morning. That is as sure a sign that spring is around the corner as seeing a Robin!
Thank goodness, because too much more of this weather & I may snap.
