For part of T'other's lunch I'm heating a wee frozen pizza (M&M's individual deep dish pepperoni for my fellow Canucks) and I had to preheat the oven. It has one of those digital control panels that want you to push bake, select a temperature and press the ok button. I pushed bake, then stopped to verify the…
I just walked into my livingroom and saw t'other slumped way down on the couch, with the last of his lunch still sitting on the table beside him. He needs to keep upright, so he doesn't develop pnuemonia. He needs all the nutrition I can jam in him. So I found my self snapping,
Just over seven weeks ago, t'other was assaulted and thrown down a flight of stairs while trying to stop a domestic assault in our building. He has a severe compound fracture to his left femur, broke his left humerus, his nose and his right wrist. He had to have surgery on both his leg and arm, and has lots of plates…
T'other rode a big fucking good-guy-hero horse into a bad situation. A lady was locked out of our building, in tears and screaming for help. So of course the former social worker rode to the rescue.

As with so many blanket statements this is both innaccurate and misleading. I can think of much that is cheaper and just as convenient as fast food. But I…
I just watched Criminal Minds, (don't judge me, I love Garcia).
About being poor. Here's what so many people don't get: it's not just about the overall cost per serving, or what are known as 'budget savers'.

Brigitte Bardot's black wig gave a link to this post about a PoC woman's recent abortion, which I am sharing
On another post, about Leelah Alcorn, Dr Mrs the Monarch wrote (about the question of what the parents of Leelah where thinking/doing) :
In my take, they are six through ten:
I must start all posts with this disclaimer: I am a second generation devout atheist. There was never a god in my life.
And now I am so confused!
T'other and I have been going through some economic hardship: one of us is a stay-at-home and t'other one has been unemployed for basically 2 1/2 years.
If one more person tells me I shouldn't be allowed to buy people presents or eat turkey because "Christmas is for Christians", I may go virtual* postal in my head. Not in reality
