I hate cicada season. HATES it, Precious.Ragnar doesn't give a hoot (or a bark, or a howl, or some weird middle-of-the-night snuffle-grunt that scares the shit out of his owner) about cicadas. Ragnar cares deeply about the innards of stuffed animals. And shoes. And walls. So, lately in the list of Things Ragnar Ate: Another pair of flip… Continue reading Things Ragnar Ate Episode 4: The Reeking
If Those Who Forget History are Doomed to Repeat It, What Happens to Those Who Destroy It?
This is not a funny post. I'm so goddamned angry* and sad, and so helpless to do anything it becomes a terrible, self-sustaining circle if I'm not careful. I recognize there is truly nothing I can do about this, and so I'm venting here because...well, because it's a place I can vent I suppose. CNN is… Continue reading If Those Who Forget History are Doomed to Repeat It, What Happens to Those Who Destroy It?
Update: Screaming Worms.
Turns out it's "web worms" (a couple people called them silkworms, but I didn't see any silk...just gross maggoty things that moved in time with the beat of Chewy's feet as he walked by). Husband thinks Chewy is purposefully amassing an army of worms to create air-support (as they do eventually turn into moths, after… Continue reading Update: Screaming Worms.
Entertaining Empathy For a Change
I have a funny post pending for tomorrow. Today is something else I need to discuss. Today I am not funny. I read a lot of online news and such (it's slow at work right now), and the past few days I've been pretty disgusted. Do you know there was a fatal car crash in… Continue reading Entertaining Empathy For a Change
These are not the turtles you’re looking for. Move along.
Someone found my blog by searching "gerard butler and the house of unicorns" which I can only assume is some sort of pre-"hitting-it-big" porn. Hmm. Excuse me while I surf the interwebz. In other news, motorcycle accidents suck. Insurance companies suck. Lawsuits suck. And for some reason. lawyers seem to think they're entitled to information… Continue reading These are not the turtles you’re looking for. Move along.
Back to Hell, Demon!
I was observed recently as being...inconsistent...between who I appear to be and who I am. It's a fair observation given by one of the slight handful of people in the world who know the real me, and 100% true in the context of the conversation. This post will likely be long and self-indulgent attempt to… Continue reading Back to Hell, Demon!
Freedom isn’t free.
This is not a funny post, and honestly, it shouldn't be. I posted a bit of this on facebook the other day, but a momentary rant made me really start thinking about what's going on in today's political climate. This will be my only post on politics in this season (unless, of course, I "misspoke"… Continue reading Freedom isn’t free.
Why Kristen Stewart isn’t the devil
I made some fantastically stupid mistakes in my teens and twenties. I managed to stay out of jail and brothels, but I still had plenty of asshole moments. For instance: I skipped 90% of my lecture hall classes for the first two years of college. I tried to have a one night stand with a guy… Continue reading Why Kristen Stewart isn’t the devil
My knee is no longer jerking.
It took me a few days to think through my reactions to the Aurora, CO shootings and NOT write a knee-jerk-reaction post. I saw much of the following (in a zillion variations) over the weekend on Twitter, Facebook, and various news outlets: 1) "Why were there children at an R-rated movie at midnight anyway?"2) "This… Continue reading My knee is no longer jerking.
Sluts and Harlots: The Moms Need Feminist Education
Today, I saw this on The Stir: http://thestir.cafemom.com/teen/137667/uptight_moms_spray_lysol_onand it makes me both disappointed and sad. Regardless of my stance on teenagers dirty dancing at a school function, these women's reactions were utterly ridiculous, sexist, and downright misogynistic. What, you didn't think women can hate women? If your boyfriend/husband/lover looks at, flirts, or even cheats, who… Continue reading Sluts and Harlots: The Moms Need Feminist Education
