In the last fews days I've The Walking Dead and American Horror Story and I must say they're depressing as heck. I ready to watch some silly, mindless comedies. I'd rather laugh.

Thank you. That was very sweet of you.

But I am still laughing.

Did little E behave most of the day?

Yep, he was pretty good today. Went to sleep pretty easy at 8, but is up again now. Dad is on get-back-to-sleep duty though. It's been a while, so I may go up and see if he needs help in a bit. Moms are just more cuddly me thinks.

Well, you know how I said the hair cut I got was ok? It wasn't. I styled it myself today and when it dried curly, it looked totally flat on one side! Upon further investigation, he seemed to have NOT LAYERED IT on one side. WTF?!? I fixed it myself. It looks pretty good, but for a $65 hair cut, I'd prefer not to do touch ups two days later.

I don't know if this link will work, but someone just posted this YouTube of Funny Talking Animals on Facebook, and it made me laugh so hard, I cried!

You have such cute kiddos. And you're very brave for shopping with all four. Just two at the store is enough to nominate me for a bad mommy award...LOL

I don’t mean to dishonor the other stories here. But there is one I wanted to add.

A good portion of my pro-bono work is defending abused children. It’s a cause close to my heart. In the course of my work I met a man who was an adult survivor. You wouldn’t have known it looking at him. He was this gigantic Polynesian guy. Wild curly hair. I think of him every time I see Khal Drogo on GoT. He was counseling some of the little kids, and doing a fantastic job of it.

I visited his home to get his opinion on something and I noticed a little toy on his desk. It was Trolley. Naturally curious, I asked him about it.

This is what he told me:

“The most dangerous time for me was in the afternoon when my mother got tired and irritable. Like clockwork. Now, she liked to beat me in discreet places so my father wouldn’t see the bruises. That particular day she went for the legs. Not uncommon for her. I was knocked down and couldn’t get back up. Also not uncommon. She gave me one last kick, the one I had come to learn meant ‘I’m done now’. Then she left me there upstairs, face in the carpet, alone. I tried to get up, but couldn’t. So I dragged myself, arm over arm, to the television, climbed up the tv cabinet and turned on the tv.

“And there was Mr. Rogers. It was the end of the show and he was having a quiet, calm conversation with those hundreds of kids. In that moment, he seemed to look me in the eye when he said ‘And I like you just for being you’. In that moment, it was like he was reaching across time and space to say these words to me when I needed them most.

“It was like the hand of god, if you’re into that kind of thing. It hit me in the soul. I was a miserable little kid. I was sure I was a horrible person. I was sure I deserved every last moment of abuse, every blow, every bad name. I was sure I earned it, sure I didn’t deserve better. I *knew* all of these things … until that moment. If this man, who I hadn’t even met, liked me just for being me, then I couldn’t be all bad. Then maybe someone could love me, even if it wasn’t my mom.

“It gave me hope. If that nice man liked me, then I wasn’t a monster. I was worth fighting for. From that day on, his words were like a secret fortress in my heart. No matter how broken I was, no matter how much it hurt or what was done to me, I could remember his words, get back on my feet, and go on for another day.

“That’s why I keep Trolley there. To remind me that, no matter how terrible things look, someone who had never met me liked me just for being me, and that makes even the worst day worth it to me. I know how stupid it sounds, but Mr. Rogers saved my life.”

The next time I saw him, he was talking to one of my little clients. When they were done with their session, he helped her out of her chair, took both of her hands, looked her in the eyes and said: “And remember, I like you just for being you.”

That, to me, is Mr. Rogers’ most powerful legacy. All of the little lives he changed and made better with simple and sincere words of love and kindness.

That was a nice story, because I love Mr Rogers. And he meant a lot to me during tough times in my childhood.

I love Mr. Rogers, too. I loved that he said that other people are not entitled to know your thoughts and feelings; those only belong to you.

I need a drink. Really, I do. I have to be slightly floaty in order to properly watch any one of the weird movies I pick. That, and I can't remember the last time I had a cocktail. NYE perhaps.?. Yep. Rum it is.

Ugh. I think I somehow ended up with a similar cut, the last time I went. I'm becoming more and more disillusioned with getting hair cuts, as of late. Which is a shame, because I used to love them! No matter how I explain it, no one can seem to cut it the way I want them to. And it's nothing super complicated, either. Honestly, I'm not that picky or particular about it. I just DON'T want hair that sticks up in some spots* and is completely flat in others. Is that really so much to ask? I mean honestly.

* - It's been about 3 months since my cut, and there's still this ONE chunk of hair that "pops out" from the rest of my hair. Every. Fricking. Day. It drives me absolutely insane.

Remind me not wait several years before watching A Scanner Darkly again. I forgot how much I adore this scene.
The narration (book passage reading) was brilliant.

Apparently assembling two dressers and a bed frame from Ikea is a full day's work.

Hour 5 and maybe 1/2 done the bed (both dressers are assembled though).

Doesn't help that it's about 25C (77F) in my apartment, so I'm sweating and dehydrated (despite taking off my shirt, which I'm sure is not helping Mr Mojo's productivity) and have a massive headache.

.... maybe I should stop with the .....

I'm watching a movie about a "future" police state and rampant drug addiction, based on a book written in 77'.

I'll pass. Oh wait...

So I googled a recipe for chicken gizzards. I went on a food forum and was reading the posts. Gravy, soup, a Dominican recipe and then as I continued scrolling i read: blah blah Saria's recipe something or another...

Wait. What website am I on? I go back to the Dominican recipe and see it's from Saria. So:

Saria, can I get that recipe?

Downside? I left my fav lip balm/gloss at his place and that **** ain't cheap.
Ah sorry to hear that, break ups are tough. And it's even worse when you leave stuff you like at their place. What was the lip gloss? Maybe there's a decent cheap-er replacement.

For gizzards? I don't think I've shared a recipe for them.

Things I really don't need to see that are currently on my FB feed:
A shiny, chocolate-glazed, penis-shaped cake from my Passion Party friend. Complete with what looks like whipped cream jizz oozing out of the tip. I can't with how so many things I really like (the chocolate being the one I care for least ) have been made into an unholy combination that makes me grimace.
