    venus, The Louisa May Alcott in one of your titles reminds me of Geraldine Brooks' Pulitzer prize-winning "March" (a 2009 read, I confess) based on, of course, the March family of "Little Women". I pr more »

    Venus, holy moley!  You've got quite a list going.   Do you get to read all day?  If you do, I want your job. I liked your star rating system in your first post.  I went straight to your reviews on a more »

    Big Mac, their fries drenched in ketchup, and diet Coke with lots of ice. 

    Surefire remedy since college.  As a lightweight, I still have to revert to this once in a while, like this morning.

    Actually, avoidance of conflict is a viable option.  Snow's been proactive about the dynamics of her work environment and the conflict has escalated.  She's already decided, with her FI's concurrence, more »

    But I didn't answer your original question: don't invite her, don't tell her, don't engage in any conversation with her about it.  If she asks (would she really?), I'd shrug, give a vague non-answer, more »

    Our posts crossed.  Your update has changed my mind.

    I would not invite her.  more »

    Do you know for certain that you will never, ever need a reference from this woman?  Aside from the wedding dilemma, it would be in your best self-interest to follow others advice and have a third par more »

    madriver, extensive list!  I've read something by nearly every one of those authors and could add more.  To switch things up, there's always the espionage authors; Ludlum, Patterson, Balducci.  My bro more »

    ron, thanks.  "Two Redheads" - the title is great. I'm always happy to support a local artist, so I will definitely look for that title.  And the next one in July.  Aren't recurring characters a myste more »

    venus and mad, It's true. My choices are pretty lowbrow when it comes to mysteries, just something easy to pick up and put down.  And preferably some humor.  My 18 year-old introduced me to Harris, ma more »

    Dani - I went on an Agatha Christie jag some years ago (Miss Marple is better than Poirot), have read some of Mrs. Jeffries, and from what I remember I would think that they are of similar ilk.  Going more »

    I think you either invite her to your wedding or you don't.  Let her make her own excuses for declining the invitation.  Feeding her reasons for not attending feels like a backhanded disinvitation, wh more »

    I went with a friend to see Emerson students give a performance of a children's play and between we had five toddlers.  Navigating the stairs after the show was tricky, and somehow I ended up trying t more »

    johnm4, funny! My husband's fallback position used to be to duplicate what the mannequin was wearing. He figured someone who knew what they were doing picked the outfit. more »

    soxygirl, it could be because they're like my husband. Never throws anything away (especially pants that still fit him from more than a decade ago!), and manages to get out of the house with them on o more »

    That's what I suspected mwnn.  I was once "recruited away" from one company to another (accounting job too).  I didn't even know how they had gotten my name, but it worked out well for me at the time. more »

    Good call, mwnm.  I actually have several different versions of my resume Amethyst.  I've read that in this market employers expect applicants to fit the job paremeters exactly, so it would be necessa more »

    Sorry about your potential job loss.  It seems as though the lay-offs just keep rolling out. I chose the under-employed route some years back to allow for flexiblity and had visions of jumping back in more »
