I just read the Rolling Stone article about Dartmouth fraternities. Disgusting!


I feel fairly confident that if someone had come out with allegations like that while I was in school members of my house and I would have supported the truth. I dry pledged my house and was not made to do a single thing I didn't want to do... and was told that was the way it was supposed to be in every house. I can't imagine being in a position where you would do things like that. Eeew.


(Synposis because I'm assuming no one else will read the article: An angry kid who wants to make money off selling books is coming out with stories about the varied and disgusting things he did at his frat to be allowed to join and to allow others to join later. He talks of encouragement to vomit on each other, get in a kiddie pool full of various bodily excretions from both ends, eat vomlets, and other gross things. I half think he's making things up for attention, and half believe it. The house he was in was one of the ones I intentionally never entered in school. You could smell it from far away, and I didn't like a single member of the house I met. At the same time, I never heard of any of the worst things he mentioned, and can't imagine that we wouldn't have even heard rumors of that type of crap.)

I had to buy a bunch of yummy foods last night, to get me through work today! Call it unhealthy if you want to, but it's about the only thing that's going to keep me going today.

Stroopwafels solve everything. True story.

My kids have been sick with a horrible cough all week, and my older one had an eye infection - and I have to actually explain to their dad that its not a good idea to have a bonfire in the backyard with them.

I really just cut myself with the base of a tart pan. It's not the first time I've done that with a tart pan either. Sigh.

It bugs me that my mother decides to uphold the no meat on Fridays thing come Lent. For all the derision you throw my way about being a, gasp, atheist (which is practically a dirty word), you're not religious! You don't go to church, you don't particularly pay much mind to religious doctrine, but you wanna pretend like it matters that you do or don't eat meat once a week for a few weeks. You have no reason to other than to hang on to the idea that you're a Catholic, after all, and not some lawless, amoral atheist.

Who's to know better than a sibling? I think it's legit, esp if you both agree.

Our extended family has just started the process of having my niece's removed from their mother. The primary witness just called, she's backing out. The stuff that she told us that was going on, it was really bad. Suddenly she decided that the mother deserves chance number 1678. She says the girls really need their mom and if we just help her out more then she'll straighten out. No, what they need is someone who will take care of them, a stable home, someone who won't put them in danger and gives a damn when they get hurt or sick. I'm not sure who I'm more pissed at right now. I can't believe she let all of this go down without telling anyone before now. I'm so furious I can't even think straight right now. And this is a person who needs rescued at least twice a year for her entire adult life. It'd be stupid to think this time would be different. The smart thing to do is to let the girls stay with family until she actually gets on her feet if that were ever to happen. There is no need for them to suffer any more than they already have. If she actually cared as much as she claimed she would have got her **** together a long ****ing time ago.

LOL, aren't fish Fridays cultural? Lots of Latino/Caribbean families are cultural Catholics...

That's true Amneris. Catholics, like Jewish, Muslim and Hindu groups for example, can be regarded as diasporic. Basically, individuals may identify with the lifestyle associated with the faith, but don't necessarily consider themselves religious.

Haha.

I haven't eaten meat besides fish in YEARS. My mother likens this to me being a drug addict. I'm serious. She thinks I'm incredibly unhealthy because I don't eat meat, but it's okay she smokes like crazy and drinks a lot and bakes in the sun and eats tons of
fried food. YUP.

She's always trying to sneak meat into my food.

During Lent, she ALWAYS calls me to make sure I haven't eaten meat on Friday. I tell her, "I HAVEN'T EATEN MEAT IN TEN YEARS AND ALL YOU DO IS NAG ME ABOUT IT AND YET YOU'RE CALLING TO MAKE SURE I AM NOT MAKING EXCEPTIONS FOR LENT? WHAT? WHAT? WHAT?"

Friend: How are u? I'm just calling to check to on you
Me: I'm fine as long as I don't talk or think about it (the break up)
Friend: (Proceeds to talk about it 15 mins)
Me: (Crying silently as my friend rambles on and I try to change the subject)

Why didn't I just hang out.

Friend: I'm gonna change the subject (changes it to the other subject I don't want to talk about, Trayvon Martin).
(rambles for another 15 mins)
