I am trying not to care about this. It's not working. Help me out.
So many bad things are happening in the world. 40 shootings in Chicago. Israel-Hamas. Rape of 6 year old in India. Rhinos and elephants and tigers slaughtered. Is there anything good happening in the world? Please share.
Can someone stop the Kardashians from getting any more animals? Since the show began, they've had a whole series of dogs that keep suddenly disappearing.
Once upon a time, I wrote a post about How To Talk To Sick People (Stop Saying "I Hope You Feel Better!") And that was before the stroke and the auto-immune diagnosis. Here's a follow-up. I welcome suggestions.
So this ad is everywhere, showing little kids and their fathers. Plus there the whole thread earlier about the song you danced to with your father at your wedding. It was really sweet.
With all the talk about going natural, it drives me crazy how heavily things are scented, from hair products to laundry detergent.
You have a perspective you want people to hear. The people you want to consider your words probably have a different race/gender/class background.
I have a week before I head into medical hell so I'm completely splurging on terrible food and TV. Can you stream The Girls Next Door? (sadly, no.) Want to know all about the Kardashian wedding? While having some kettle corn and buffalo wings. Thank you!
This is a really long vent. I will tl;dr it for you here: I have medical stuff going on and my family is being completely self-centered about it.
These are your comfort food of movies. The movies that lull you to sleep. The ones that make you feel better after a bad day at work. There's nothing socially redeeming about these movies. They just make you feel warm and familiar, like a chocolate molten cake.
The fabulous writer (and mother) Anne Lamott reposted her essay on why she doesn't like Mother's Day because it celebrates this idea that women with children are more important and better people than those without. Spewing comments ensued. WHY DO YOU HATE MOTHERS?
I am watching Les Miserables. Nothing. The women with breast cancer where her friends all shaved their heads? Nothing.
Please send some good thoughts my way. It is the end of the semester. I have two weeks to go and then finals. And I woke up this morning with the lower back of my head all swollen and my eye is killing me.
I do not know why I watched this. It's not far from Philadelphia. The shelters are always full here. And they put so many doggies and cats to sleep.
this movie was far, far sadder than I expected. I don't think she wanted to push people away and be hurtful. I think she wanted to be loved but just ... couldn't. What did you think?
Most of my students are great. But every semester there is one student who sucks all the time and energy and patience I have.
I hate when I have great phone and email banter with work people and then I have to meet them. I feel I should warn them - look, I know I sound cute and awesome in email, but be prepared to meet Honey Boo-Boo's mother, ok?
I walked a half mile today. Met with some students. Had a meeting. And I'm exhausted. Not sleepy exhausted, but bone tired weary.
My landlord lives in the apartment below me. Part of the reason I'm moving out is because sometimes when she gets upset, she screams and yells, often for quite some time. Often at 3 a.m. She slams the cabinets and stomps around. (She lives alone)
I am in medical hell in the middle of nowhere. This is long because I am upset and I just need to uh, let it go. I will not break into song.
