While I was sleeping today someone replaced my hair with an out of control shrubbery.

Worn out iPhone. Need I say more?

My son got the kindergarten teacher I really didn't want him to get. I just don't want him to have a traumatic experience starting school. I had a long phone conversation with the sympathetic principal, but she wouldn't switch his classroom because the others are too full. But, I've decided not to worry about him until/unless there's something to worry about. I'm going into this with a positive attitude, and if DS doesn't thrive in there, then I will deal with it.

The good news is, I didn't really throw away a check from Chuck Norris by accident. It didn't get mailed yet, which is why we couldn't find it. WHEW!!!!

My son fell asleep with his sister's baby doll. He looks very cute.

I might be making a big deal over nothing. A colleague's daughter had a bad experience with that teacher and eventually had to switch classrooms. So my apprehension is based on secondhand reports. Hopefully nothing like that will happen with DS.

Sarah I'm sorry. We are also dreading what teacher our son will have this year. Although we've had personal problems with one of his potential teachers already. Hopefully everything will work out.


My fat thumb will make mistakes.

Sounds like you met a nice shy guy and organised a nice date. Then, proceeded to act like you didn't care enough about him stick to safe menu option and not make him eat food from your chopsticks. I've been guilty of this too, I've ordered spaghetti on a first date, I've had ribs at a work luncheon. I've even had a girl to my parents when mum cooked chicken wings. The difference is I know when I am in the wrong.
WTF?! I can't believe people want to act like you can't let someone know that you, gasp, slurp noodles just like everyone else! Or to quote:

Be glad. Even if it was satire, it failed to make that clear and therefore was bad satire. And that comment...ragequit. I can't.

Be careful making statements like that, though, because so many people want to carry them to works of fiction that actually are sexist/racist/etc. tracts. Having sexist characters is one thing. Having the book itself agree with sexist views is quite another. As an example of this, I point you to the YA book Wither, also known as Rape Apologism: The Novel. The book itself and its author, who has even made this clear on Facebook, completely agree with the characters' assessment that, for example, a kidnapped teenaged girl who is severely depressed and starving herself in protest of being forced to be some creeper's bride and having her sister killed is not being raped because she stopped actively pushing him away and just didn't consent and let it happen when he came to her bed. Also, the dude who boffs a 13 year old that was also kidnapped for him is a total sweetheart, and the 13 year old, who was curious and excited about sex because she's freaking 13, goes through a horrible pregnancy and the book just hates her. Not just the characters: the narration makes it clear how it feels about her.

So yeah. Always add the "characters, not whole books" caveat, because stuff like that exists and is being consumed by impressionable teenaged girls and the author thinks she's done nothing wrong. Heaven help us all.

I feel just the same sometimes! I spend nearly all my time here on SIIDY now, so when I've only been venting about how much everything sucks, I feel like I'm giving the impression that I am only about the bad things.

This and other problems will be solved when I finally get back to watching the last ep of Buffy. I can't tonight, but I need to watch it already so I will finally know how Joss is going to ruin me forever and finally have FINISHED and finally have to name my blog.

Uh...

Crap.

I have no clue what I'm going to name my blog.

Excellent news, but why would you be getting a check from Chuck Norris? Did you give him karate lessons?

I do get what you are saying WS, and it is a huge difference especially when that pov is admitted and agreed to.

I take no offense to someone writing something majorly f'ed up, start to finish, and saying... No, I do not agree with this. I was trying my hand at delving into this mindset and the work is actually a statement against... It comes from the imagination, and yes with pulls from real life most of the time BUT you can't really limit ones imagination. That's a slippery slope.

I could in no way support or purchase a book where the author said, yes I believe and support this pov on *insert several wrongs here*. NO! If I find it troublesome or questionable, I won't to near it. Now if it's true to a time period, fits with the theme, etc. And it's not their actual pov or belief, I do see that as something different. I've seen several arguments where situations were true to the time (mindsets to actions) and people just purely speculated on the authors intent.

I don't feel comfortable doing that.

But I was eaten by hoard of zombies in a friends book, and laughed until I cried when I read it. So, I guess you could say I'm kind of laid back.

Not the same, I know. Lol

Hey, w_s, I finally started a tumblr, but I have to snazz it up and I don't know how to do certain things that all the cool kids on tumblr are doing! I named it after a Posh Nosh reference, though since I can change it, I might go with something Korra-related once in a while.

I just find that so completely ridiculous, and the truth is I wouldn't want to date someone who was so concerned with appearance to the point that they couldn't eat comfortably and expected you to behave the same way.
