    Were you trying to teach her to pee standing up?

    I was trying to teach her to pee in an appropriate receptacle, preferably one which she is not currently wearing. 6-7 pair of wet (to various degrees) panties over the course of a single morning, with one actual successful urination in an appropriate location (which I mostly attribute to the power of statistics -- if you spend half the morning sitting on one potty or another, you'll eventually pee in one of them) means I pretty much failed.

    If she wants to do it standing up, at this point I'll let her as long as she at least takes down her pants & panties and tries to aim. :P

    Personally, I like D&D because I find OCD much more interesting than ADD.

    Tell her that if she doesn't get it right next time and from then on, you're going to ban her from peeing.

    She's 3 plus a couple of months.

    She knows what a potty is for, she likes to go through the motions, she particularly likes the part where she washes her hands afterwards, she just doesn't want to (or can't) predict when she has to go and hold on until she can get there.

    I'm well aware that plenty of kids aren't trained until this age or even later, but she seems actively resistant to the very idea. It's frustrating as hell.

    My kid sister wasn't fully potty trained until the second day of daycare (a few months before she turned 4). I'm sure she only did it to fit in.

    Yeah, I almost wasted $300 to be one of 1000 people to see them play an impromtou show in Atlanta, GA, but I backed out cause the tickets on craigslist seemed shady.

    I'm glad I did, because I heard the show sucked. In fact, I heard a lot of their live performances are ass, which is a tragedy.

    I used to always hold chopsticks wrong despite my parents teaching me how to hold them properly at the age of like 6. Until I met my boyfriend and we went out for dim sum, and I saw him holding them correctly, which made me feel like I should hold them properly too, so I've been doing that since that day. So peer pressure (from a white guy) was the only thing that was capable of making me hold my chopsticks like an adult.

    Nuts to you :P . I know how to use chopsticks, but I don't like them as an eating implement. I always get knives and forks at Chinese/Thai/Vietnamese/Japanese restaurants.

    People can try to extol the virtues of chopsticks as some kind of superior eating instrument, and I think that's nonsense. They're a product of the cultures that also brought us this wonderful food. Well, you know what? I'm there for the food, not to pretend I'm part of a culture I ain't.

    I was only intending to put half of these cherry tomatoes in this sauce, but I ate so many of them while preparing ingredients that I just tossed the whole lot in.

    Means I don't have five or six forlorn looking tomatoes lurking in the bottom of the fridge, you see.

    I am aware of this. I've eaten at traditional Chinese restaurants (The kind you find buried in Chinatown with, like, 10 tables max and a waitress and cook that yell at each other constantly) and dig the food, but I can never convince my friends to try anything other than westernized Chinese food.

    I just like eating with chopsticks because it's a change. I have some Japanese chopsticks that were given to me a few years back (I think they're for formal dining or something - really ornate) and whenever I bring Asian food home I eat it with chopsticks.

    Chopsticks are better for certain kinds of Asian food, especially noodles and stir-fries with large chunks of meat/veggies that aren't meant to be eaten all in one bite.

    I watch my mother try to eat her tom yum noodle with a fork and it makes me cry a little inside.
