Do people really expect us to believe Operation Repo? That show is so phony.

And...I'll be honest, part of the reason why Sister Wives irks me so much is that those people seem so stinkin rich! They must be making a ton of money from the show. But dude has his own business too. I guess it's doing pretty well. Four wives, each with their own houses, umpteen kids and another on the way, and he drives a Lexus too!

I'm jellis.

I belong to a bunch of forums but never seem to run across anything as nasty as sometimes happens here on NC. And this is the only censored forum I read, which I would think would keep things more civilized. Yikes, I guess not!

"At least you have your health" is a very ignorant thing to say to somebody battling depression. You don't FEEL healthy when you hurt this much on the inside.

When you're battling depression and long-term unemployment, any sentence that begins with "At least you have...." is not generally going to be welcomed. I can relate.

Ignorant indeed. Mental health is as important as physical health -- one who is depressed is not healthy. Period. Not to mention there are usually secondary physical symptoms like fatigue, digestive issues, body aches, etc.

I hope you start to feel better soon, CIBC.

Thanks Saria. We had Salvadorian for lunch/brunch and then I stayed on the couch and watched TV for the rest of the day. Oh, and I had some chocolate meringue pie for dinner. All in all, a pretty good day for getting that much closer to 30.

Woohoo! Orange peppers on sale this week for $1.49/pound. They're never that cheap.

Never! (re: orange peppers)
-----------
I'm on pins and needles.

I've never done a cross-country dog rescue,and my instinct is to keep this little guy close to home. I think that may be an emotion-based error, though, considering he could have a chance at spending time on a 40 acre farm, running and playing his heart out with a little girl and another dog.

(Evil idea break: I could take him, and send Sadie instead! Hmmmmm.......nah. I love the little nuisance, though I'm sure to want to scream at her by the end of the day.)

But, flying a dog is never simple. I will worry the entire time, until I'm certain he's safe. Even a driving transport at that distance has its risks, since dogs do get lost, drivers have issues (my car once broke down while loaded with five nauseated Catahoula puppies, one of whom was sick on my boyfriend, who was himself sick......that was quite a day), and things happen.

I feel like I'll be having to trust to the wind, which is not my strong suit.

Also, I'm seeing a lawyer today, to formally warn the absentee landlord next door that if his rotten, violent tenants damage any more of my trees, he'll be sued. I've tried talking with him about it for months, without success. Ah, the joys of having a foreclosed house next door cheaply sold to a lazy guy under 30.

I think I may have PMS going, too.

Nervous! Very nervous!

I just snapped at my grandmom and told her to leave me alone. I want to go back to having my own space and not having to deal with anyone in the morning (hell, night for that matter) unless I have to, I also don't want to have to deal with her while I'm struggling with this. I wish there was someone who would just let me babble on about stuff instead of judging me, I want some closure in this, I just want to know what's going on. I don't want to sit here bawling my eyes out anymore. Universe, thanks for showing your ass.

You can pm-babble me if you want. I'm a good listener.


Using my iphone with my toe thumbs. There will be typos.

A relative of my dad died. And my dad asked me to loan him $1200 for funeral costs. Which, given that I have been updating my winter wardrobe, which I hadn't done in about two years, and that I just paid my bills as I do at the beginning of the month, I don't have. I will very soon, but this is the one week I just don't. My dad has a sizable family, most of which makes more money than we do, but as typical of my dad, he always wants to give what he doesn't have. My mom told him as much because she has thankfully always managed the money. She told him to just give $500, since the rest of the family is going to contribute, not to mention that the immediate family has their own money as well. He said he would do just $500, but he's totally lying. He asked me to give him what I've got, which is more than that, for one. Add to that what he's got (he's going to pull the money out of his 401k to pay me back later) and I'm sure he'll end up giving the $1200. My mother is not happy. He always does this. As she puts it, relatives must think we're loaded when he gives away money like it's no sweat. He doesn't visit family in the DR because when he goes he wants to give away a fortune which he doesn't have. He even suggested that he'd have to "suffer the embarrassment" of asking one of his sisters for a loan. Umm, that sister is already giving money herself. Isn't it absurd that you would go to her to borrow money for something she's giving money to already? It just comes off as "well, here, this is from me" even though it ultimately came from one person!
And really, I think it's ridiculous that he insists on doing this. Nobody needs him to contribute that much. He's probably the least well-off of all the relatives

My husband is that way sometimes, too, Saria. It drives me bonkers. I love being generous, but you should only give what you have. It's ridiculous to go into debt over it.

I just watched someone eat something that looked really unappetizing. She said it was asadura and ate it like it was the most delicious food in the world. I wish I'd never Googled it.

@ iroc: I don't want to say just yet because I'm really hoping things aren't as bad as I think they are. I'm trying to wait but the longer I do the more it drives me crazy, and not an angry crazy more like a "please be over" crazy. If that makes any sense.
