dear husband: omfg, did you lose your sense of humor down in Juneau, or are you just suddenly way oversensitive about my fondness for the term "butt-pirate?" heh hehe. Butt pirate. God, I just love saying that.
so, help a stranded tundra babe out, here. Is it like, "emu," but with an "o?"
Life would financially suck for both DH and me if we split, but it would suck more for me and the kids. i voted, "I'd get minimum wage." We would survive, but man, it would be pretty dang spartan.
A combo of chronic sleep deprivation and lack of intergenerationally-accepted adult-child boundaries. My kids are totally, totally unbearable if they have not slept enough.

I worked my ass of for that degree, dammit, and that ought to count for something, just like previous experience and a given skill set should. I agree with your whole post, and this part really jumped out at me. I'm not interested in seeing everyone become all anti-intellectual, but I WOULD like...
