Atheist seeks recognition to organize?

I don't agree with someone being subjected to being ridiculed for their lack of faith. But I find it distressing that this young atheist responded "no" when asked if he felt his life has a lasting purpose.

Dear Atheists in Santa Monica...

Atheists in Santa Monica, CA decided to protest the use of public space for religious displays. Atheists entered the lottery for spaces and filled the spaces with NOTHING.

Do holiday displays get you all riled up? Honestly, I find the over-commercialization of the holiday to be quite irritating. I mean, people camp put for days to get ridiculous door-buster specials.

Here's the rub: the Constitution doesn't guarantee freedom from any mention of religion. The public pay taxes and the public sometimes happen to be Christians.

I really don't see how a few nativity scenes and a Hannukah display force you to practice religion or establish anything other than religion exists. And a few empty spaces won't stop me from practicing mine.

High stress mess

I don't know about you guys, but I have a hard time keeping things neat when I get stressed out. Right now I have piles of papers that I must organize, unfinished projects, and laundry on my bed. Yet, here I am, writing another note about it. I'm hoping that writing it down will help remind me to dig in to it. But then, maybe, sometimes it's ok to let the mess be for a bit and rest. Sometimes other things really are a priority. Hopefully you won't see me on Hoarders! I think over the holidays, I will try to get all of this crazy stuff done which has been waiting for me. I haven't watched Hoarders in awhile, maybe that will inspire me to get some things done...

Do you wear the pants in the relationship?

Sometimes I think I have the most ridiculous friends. Thanks to Facebook, my friends have finally caught on to the fact that I have a real boyfriend. Well, for awhile there was something of a joke. At a recent Christmas party one of my friends asked,

Friend: So, tell me. Do you wear the pants in the relationship?
Savvy: Whaaaaaat? No.
Friend: Are you sure.
Savvy: OMG. Yes, I'm sure. What a weird question.
Friend: Well, it's just that you're really outspoken.
Savvy: So? My boyfriend likes that about me.
Friend: Yeah, but do tell him what to do, and stuff?
Savvy: This may come as a shock to you, but no.

I'm mystified by my reputation

Why women play with their hair

It's out there.  The recent investment bankers letter for a second date posted to Reddit even referred to the myth.  You've been told that a woman playing with her hair is a sign of flirting. It's happened to me. I was on a date with a man and I was playing with my hair.

He: I've heard that a woman playing with her hair is a sign of flirting.
Me: Umm. Oh. I've never heard that before.

Reaction? Immediately stopped playing with hair.

Note to self- do not play with hair on dates with men I haven't met.

Sometimes relationships can suck for stupid reasons

So, I have a boyfriend. At least it seems like i have a boyfriend some of the time. He went away for Thanksgiving and came back on Sunday. We have only talked on the phone for 7 minutes this week.

The Pickup Artists from Simple Pickups

Are they cool or are they cads? "I've always dreamt of helping people. We're less than average guys."

Well, they've done it all. They have dressed as Super Mario, the Tooth Fairy, and the Statue of Liberty and still scored numbers. They have picked up on girls as they sat in wheelchairs. For what? To show that anyone can pick up girls.

How does it work? check out this full article from ABC's Nightline. And this video.
