    [–] Monthly Dystopian & Sci-Fi Book Club in Capitol Hill area IDoDash 5 points ago in SeattleWA

    I live too far outside the city now so the location isn’t convenient...but I completely endorse your effort! I hope it comes together for you.

    [–] Seattle Reddit Community Open Chat, Sunday, April 14, 2019 IDoDash 2 points ago in SeattleWA

    The Dropout, about the rise and fall of Theranos, felt kinda cult-y to me. Either way, it was good.

    [–] Monthly Dystopian & Sci-Fi Book Club in Capitol Hill area IDoDash 6 points ago in SeattleWA

    Just an FYI - Elliott Bay Book Co used to have a Sci-Fi/Fantasy book club that met monthly. I haven’t been since they relocated from Pioneer Square to Capitol Hill, but you might check it out if you can’t get traction starting your own. I remember reading ‘Blindness’ with them...

    [–] I need some beagle healthy living advice. I’ll give you the situation in the comments. IDoDash 2 points ago in beagle

    I have an older beagle (he’s 11) that I adopted when he was 6. He was very underweight due to neglect, and I was determined to fatten him up. I went a bit overboard and after about a year he was quite a chonker. He is pretty sedentary as well, and I imagine it is due to his age more than anything else...he is just slowing down. So I knew that ‘exercise’ wasn’t going to cure the weight problem.

    My vet recommended a Natural Balance dog food that is literally called “Fat Dog”. I followed the portion instructions, and after about 9 months he had lost almost 10 lbs. Now he is a healthy 26 lbs. He is still slow, but no longer a chonk.

    [–] What's up with all the red? IDoDash 10 points ago in SeattleNHL

    I think it would be smart for them to create a truly unique brand identity. If they stick with the blue/green/grey scheme like the Seahawks and Mariners, they run the risk of having the home crowd full of people only half-committed, attending the game in their Mariners or Seahawks gear because the colors are ‘close enough’. If they choose something unique and bold like red, that home crowd is going to stand out from the rest of the local sports. People will buy jerseys and t-shirts because they need something to wear to the game...they will invest in the gear and thus in the team. It’s a smart move in my opinion.

    I welcome our future red, black and grey jerseys.

    [–] Do all beagles sit like this? IDoDash 2 points ago in beagle

    Ah the Beagle Lean!

    Same! I like an underdog...

    [–] Do other people also sometimes forget the fact that others around them also are people that are living just as complex lives as they are? IDoDash 75 points ago in NoStupidQuestions

    Yes absolutely! Equally as mind blowing to me is the idea that there are multiple versions of you that all exist simultaneously...the version that YOU think you are, the version each of your friends thinks you are, your work colleagues, etc. None of them are true representations of you, and yet all of them are...

    [–] Men of Reddit, What makes you most insecure? IDoDash 2 points ago in AskReddit

    Thank you - this is reassuring. And you’re right, the drop is hard...as much for me as I assume it is for him. It pings every insecure part of me and I have to fight those thoughts each time. I just keep reminding myself that it isn’t about me.

    [–] Men of Reddit, What makes you most insecure? IDoDash 1 points ago in AskReddit

    After he admitted his tendency to push people away, I asked him what I could do for him. He said “Just be there for me.” Pressing a little, I asked him “What does that mean?” And he said “Don’t give up on me.”

    So I haven’t. He will hit a downward spiral and go dark and not respond to texts or calls, and I fight every thought that tells me “stop trying” or “you’re probably just annoying him at this point - give up”...it is hard sometimes. Am I doing the right thing? I don’t know...

    [–] Men of Reddit, What makes you most insecure? IDoDash 1 points ago in AskReddit

    I have a (kind of new) friend who I care about very much who sounds like you. Is there any advice you can give on how I can be the best friend I can be to him? I am determined to not be just another person who abandoned him because they don’t understand his mental illness...but I also don’t really understand it because I don’t suffer from it myself.

    [–] What is your “It will be fine.” Narrator: “It was not fine.” moment? IDoDash 17 points ago in AskReddit

    There are so many different drugs as well - keep trying until you find what works for you. Not every med is going to kill your libido and leave you feeling numb. Your doc can help you find the right balance...

    [–] Those who work a 9-5, do you actually work? IDoDash 1 points ago in TooAfraidToAsk

    Depends on the day. Some days I probably only do about 2 hours of work all combined, but other days I am busy doing back to back things for most of the day.

    [–] You know how people from the UK put "x" at the end of their texts sometimes, do Americans have an equivalent? IDoDash 1 points ago in NoStupidQuestions

    Well, in the US it certainly would be...but I feel like that’s not what it means in the UK. I think it’s just a generic sign of affection that you would use for anyone you consider a good friend, but I’ve never asked anyone to confirm. I’m not sure this particular person thinks of me as anything more than a good friend.

    [–] You know how people from the UK put "x" at the end of their texts sometimes, do Americans have an equivalent? IDoDash 1 points ago in NoStupidQuestions

    I don’t have an answer to your question, but I’ve always struggled with how to interpret that text sign-off. I have a guy friend in the UK who ends every text to me (a girl in the US) with “xx”...sometimes “xxxx”. Um, huh?

    Hadn’t thought of using a jewelry box for storage - great idea!
