    Beholding the power of cheese... in this case, 1655 Gruyere (cave-aged).

    This is cheesy but it made me tear up. (My husband and I are Cindy’s and Bobby’s age.)

    SO cool that HGTV did this:

    I have lactose intolerance as well, for about 15 years, but I can eat certain kinds of cheese. Check this out:

    I drink lactose-free milk and eat lactose-free ice cream; THOSE are the WORST sources, ugh.

    What makes me tear up is that ABC strong-armed the actual highest bidder and stole the house from them after they'd already been told the house was theirs.

    Actual "thing that cheers me up" post: I've posted here on more than one occasion about having to unfriend absolute morons on social media. Well, I happened to run into one of said people - on literally the other side of the planet - and we had a pleasant catch-up. They seemed to forget we were ever actually connected on FB before, so they sent me a request and I took a look at their profile - and the whole thing is "how in god's name can we let this shit fly?" and "we have to get rid of Trump ASAP".

    I don't know how, but someone got them to see him for the horrific monster he is, and it seems to have changed their entire attitude. It gives me a level of hope that there are others out there who are learning to see.

    Dude, congratulations. No, seriously, it's a great move. Cutting out Twitter will do wonders to bring down your stress level. I deleted my Twitter a few years back and i have never had any regrets about it.

    I never had and probably never will have twitter, though I did joke about starting one just to quote Lil Wayne, in the guise of pick up lines. Up until fairly recently partly due to trump I had no idea how pervasive it had become.

    I can certainly relate because I've been feeling this way about social media for quite some time. If I return to it altogether and actually stay, I'm definitely going to do a lot more lurking than posting.

    As for Twitter, I suppose it's easy for me to say that I don't mind it since I never really used it for interacting all that much, but at the same time, I absolutely get what you mean, since some parts of Twitter are very much like "The Shitlist", but in social media form. It's inevitably everywhere on social media, but Twitter sometimes seemed to take it to more levels than Facebook and Instagram combined. But of course, this also depends on where you go, or where you choose to interact. It just seems to give me more reasons to lurk, if not necessarily completely abstain from social media.

    But yes. I've definitely been there before. There is a sense of ultimate relief and satisfaction from purging social media from one's life.

    Twitter comes in two flavors: freewheeling opinions inundated with hate and bullying, and personal echo chamber after you've blocked all the shitty people. There's no meaningful attempt at bridging gaps or accommodating points of view. You're either surrounded by people who cause you to flip shit every few minutes, or people who do nothing but agree with you. There seems to be no in-between.

    LANCE BASS!! omg.

    Not sad, though, because the inside of the house wasn't ANYTHING like the TV show inside of the house, and now it is. And. now it's also a hotel that you can stay in.

    Even Lance isn't mad:

    "HGTV??! Aw man. I'd be pretty upset if it were anyone else, but how can you be mad at HGTV?? My television is stuck on that channel. Kudos HGTV, I know you will do the right thing with the house. That was always my biggest worry. I can smile again."

    I've done it about 6 times but then I create another one for following my favorite news and opinion feeds because I missed them. I just learned to stop actually TALKING with anyone.

    I have multiple concurrent accounts for different purposes. One is a lot more social and invested in local issues (along with generally, science and culture; Follows 1776 accounts/1312 Followers), one is "just me" (not "pretending", just disabled much cannabis smoking me; Follows 99 accounts/214 Followers) and lastly one that just babbles about the music I'm enjoying (I follow one artist with that account and that's because she followed me first, felt it was polite... but generally, I keep the more social account for following bands/artists, etc; Follows 11/36 Followers). If I feel like retreating from one account, then I can continue with the others if need be... which is what I'm basically doing now. Mainly babbling on the music account (with minor "hey I'm alive" on the other two).

    And while on one hand I totally get this approach and I've thought about setting up exactly that, it sounds exhausting; and I know that I'd eventually just set up an account for trolling people who piss me off, and that would eventually come back to poison me on some level, and no matter how slight, I don't feel it's worth it. I think I just really dislike the potential of Twitter.
