OMG.

So, you know how my mother is Jekyll and Hyde and gets on my case for what a horrible freeloader I am at times, and then the rest of the time gets all emotional about how my sister has gotten everything and there's nothing left for me and she feels terrible about it.

She's down south in a home technically owned by her boyfriend (he sold his house up north and then she sold him the house down south) and I'm in our house up north and am having horrible luck finding a job.

She cries poverty nonstop and just told me on the phone, "I'm willing to sell the house (up north) and buy you your own place if you move down here."

WT EFF?????? She's so Jekyll and Hyde. She gives me grief one minute that I should be a CEO and owning my own house and not be depending on her for anything and now suddenly she's buying me a place????????? With what money? She's crazy.

Ughhhhh. I know the writer of this blog.
is it because she says slut?

other than that I don't see anything wrong with her post, BUT...she says in one post "you can't have your cake and eat it too" and then in a totally different post she talks about having your cake and eating it too.
Yea, that turned me off. She's a decent writer, and the post was otherwise enjoyable. I also didn't understand why she was calling them sluts.

That idiom means "you can't have it both ways", right? But how? If you're having cake, you're eating it. Unless they mean have like "posess". Thinking too hard...
Your average teenaged female angst against a splashy background, imo.

Searching for "likes:"







Why can't I just STOP? Do I really need validation that desperately?



More importantly...why can't I FIND them all!!!!!!!!

Holy smoke! Janice Dickinson used to be very pretty. Then she messed herself up with alcohol, drugs, too much surgery and whatever else. Her Asian background was apparent way back when. Now I don't know what she looks like.

Well that didn't take long...3 days and my apartment is already filled with gawdmn secondhand smoke again.

It's taking all the restraint I can muster not to say something to the smoking douchebag. I can see this is going to be one of those laws with no teeth. Impossible to enforce. Awesome...more

OMG, ILU SO MUCH, Mark!

Quote:
I'm pretty sick of the Xander hate.

I think there is a real double standard with a lot of these comments.

Giles and Angel are well intentioned but Xander is gross?
Willow pines after Xander and it sad/cute, Xander pines after Buffy and it's stalkerish?

And speaking of stalkers, that's Angel to a T. It's his thing.

IMO the show uses Xander for comic relief but he's pro-Buffy all the way. I don't think he's hoping she'll go for him anymore. But each person she does go for is someone he compares himself to and wonders why them and not him. He's very insecure and it's not very endearing. But worth all this hate?

Bleech . Not in my opinion.

I'm also really tired of the every episode being picked apart from a radical feminist (as in second wave vice first wave feminist — it's not a slur, it's a definition) perspective. These women have agency. Cordelia Chase is no one's fool. She doesn't need to be protected from the big mean Xander Harris. The woman insults him with almost every sentence and yet if he makes a comment about her sexuality it's this huge slut-shaming hate speech rant. Cordelia is a completely empowered person and doesn't need anyone's protection. So is Buffy and so is Willow. I find it insulting to these characters when people act like they've been harmed by offhand comments. These characters are so above that.

It's not your job, nor anyone else's, to determine how many threads discuss a specific tangent. If I want to turn this thread into one showering praise on tater tots, I damn well will.

No one said you're breaking rules. We're saying you are complaining about something I've been doing for nearly two years. Disagree with an opinion, fine. Stop telling people not to have them or shaming them for doing so because you think….look, I am not sure what you think at all.

why is this so hard for people.

Here's your memo:

Get off my site.

I'm really tired that people constantly want to shut down any sort of critical conversation about Xander, even from people like myself who admit they like him but hate his actions or the way he is written. Disagree? Do it. I welcome it. I CHALLENGE YOU, MY FELLOW WATCHERS. But jump into a conversation and tell us how annoying, irritating, and RADFEM we are? YAWN. That **** is so ten years ago.

Oh, did you miss that memo, too? The one about treating other people with a modicum of decency? Apparently everything needs to be specifically catered and communicated to you. So let me oblige you!

Go. Away.*

*Note that this does not apply to any people who like, stan, or ship Xander in anyway, that y'all are welcome to do such things, that I don't want to shut-down or inhibit pro-Xander conversations, or that you can't talk about his (sometimes) adorable face. This only applies to SueB and her particularly vicious and gross form of cluelessness and shaming. I mean, if you're into that too, you should probably leave.
Seriously awesome.

My mother's latest reasoning for why I need to stop buying items like flour:
This house has a practically hollow foundation and soon enough it's all going to sink from the weight of ALL MY PROVISIONS!

House collapse due to flour, who knew!

~~~

I fell asleep. I worked so hard all day at no nap. I stayed on my feet and busy so I'd sleep tonight after a bad night of no sleep last night. And I fell asleep.

I think brownies make ya drowsy though. Pretty sure. Yeah.

So much love for Mark and his community of readers. Goodness like this is just everywhere:

Quote:
I hope I'm explaining myself well. Let me try for an analogy. Like, for instance, if I had a black belt in Karate and was perfectly capable of defending myself, would that mean it would be alright for Xander to just... come up to me and start beating me up? I mean, why would I complain about that? I wouldn't need to be defended from the big, mean Xander Harris, because of my black belt, so that means his behaviour would be totally okay, right?

Um. No. We'd all be like, "Xander, dude, you can't just go up to people and start whaling on them. I mean, WHO DOES THAT?"

So, regardless of whether Cordelia is "no-one's fool", as you put it, we can still say, "Xander, dude, you can't just slut-shame random women for going to parties. I mean, WHO DOES THAT?"

I took today off. Yep even after having all the time at the holidays. I have an insane # of days this year (it's my 20th year with my company-where did the time go?) so I figured what the heck.

So this new job said to be here at 8:30 it's now 8:25 and no one is here. Wtf? This is quite odd, I'm just standing in this hallway like an idiot. Not much else I can do. It's too early in the morning for these kinds of shenanigans.

I need to have a very serious talk with my mother about invasion of privacy.
I got a card from Gretchen as part of the curly exchange but I hadn't opened it. This morning I go to open it and it's already opened.
She's now claiming it wasn't her. What, they opened it at customs?
