PS- That is why I am such a silly, slow, and spastic person here. I'm not under a time limit, it is not life or death, and who cares if I forget something. I can add it later, or not. Whatever.


Murrrcat! I want to quote your post about the little girl in TN, but all the comments keep vanishing from this thread. Sigh. I saw that story on the news this morning So sad. You know the kids are making fun of her, and I would think that it would have to be bad for teachers to complain about not being able to think due to her odor. We had some very dirty kids in my class, and the kindergarten teachers would sometimes wash their filthy clothes. Some would bring bars of soap and a wash rag, take them to the bathroom, and leave them to clean up a little. No one was ever sent home.

After seeing the interview with her mom, I have to question some things. Teachers say the the little girl claims she can not remember the last time she had a bath. The mom says she has one every day and just tells the teachers that. Um... I don't buy it.

I am curious about the DSS aspect as well. The schook would not say if they had or had not been contacted this time, and DSS said a previous case had been closed.

Ooh, I was just insensitive on Facebook and I feel bad. A friend wrote:

Thanks for all the lovely birthday wishes ladies and gentlemen. Sadly, the day ended with a bear carrying off our rabbit hutch into the woods.

The rest of the conversation went like this:

SPRINGCURL: For real? What? That actually happens?


DG: Yes, a bear came up to the house, picked up the whole rabbit hutch, and carried it down into the woods. Poor bunny.


SPRINGCURL: Aww, poor bunny! Meantime, the bear's all like, "Thanks for the snacks!"

DG: yikes, it's about the worst way to die that I can imagine, like poor timmy treadwell

SPRINGCURL: I'm so sorry for the bun-bun. And for you! Crappy way to end your birthday.

Dg:


SPRINGCURL: <3

-I love it when my neighbor comes over to check on me: "I just wanted to make sure you weren't DEAD... I haven't heard from you in DAYS." HAHAHA I just love her.


-It's a sad night, y'all. It's the last of the birthday cake. I cry.

In Texas it's only beer and wine in grocery stores. And liquor only in certain counties.

My jaw literally dropped when I went to a grocery store here and saw rows and rows of tequila. Then I bought some

Bah.

I hate this. I can't wait until its different. And I can be me again.

Holy crap! I think I just heard Dexty fart it UP in the next room. BWAH-HA-HA-HA!!!

That was hilarious.

On a sad side note: he's been sneezy for like a day and a half. And it sometimes makes him do that scary breathing. I need to take him to the vet huh.

Our alcohol laws are weird, you can buy just about everything in grocery stores and gas stations as long as it's not cold. no sunday sales allowed, except in restaurants.

That's not about or for anyone here.

I don't want to be the grown up anymore. I just can't get it right, do I want to be eight again.

Here in Mexico City, you can buy booze almost everywhere (and I mean, really everywhere) BUT only before 23:59hrs o after 5:00hrs. I think this law is silly. At 23:00, every supermarket starts announcing on their loudspeakers that they ll stop selling alcohol in a while, and hurries you to buy it.

It s different in other states.

We also have "dry law" from 00:00 to 23:59 on every national holiday, like Labor Day or Independence Day or others.

No alcohol in supermarkets? Are you in the dark ages over there? Our supermarkets sell all types of booze. Some of them seem to have bigger booze sections than produce ones.

I also live in the land of the 24hour bar (who wants to drink at 8.37am?) and a place where treating alcohol related illnesses costs 8million a DAY.

We don't have alcohol in supermarkets either, though I think other states do. They're toying with the idea of introducing it here but there's been a fair bit of opposition already.
Doesn't bother me, if it's not there you don't miss it.

((((Specks)))) There is absolutely nothing wrong with hurting after all this time - that's not the sort of thing you're required to just "get over." And please don't hold things in instead of posting them here! You'll just make posters like me feel more self-conscious about running and telling half their misfortunes here. Say it, I dare you!

I...I don't...Murrr, what have you DONE?!?! I started clicking in the sidebar of that air curler video. Oh, the places you go via Youtube sidebar. I may have stumbled across the most pointless infomercial product EVER created: Grab A Bite - As Seen On TV - Grab A Bite Commercial - YouTube WHAT. DID. I. JUST. WATCH. OMG.

I really hate the "You must be on your period" thing. I'm just as even-keeled on my period as any other day, and on any day of the month, my uterus does not control my brain. Plus, I can only recall having gotten this once when I was actually even mildly upset (and not on my period). All of the other times, I've just been stating facts a male family member doesn't want to hear with nary an edge to be found in my tone. At least my female family members don't do this...those of my sex who decide to declare me upset for calmly explaining why I don't agree with something will instead say it's because I am afflicted with "the militancy of youth." They'll also at least admit that my tone and inflection don't indicate anger when pressed, though that doesn't make them stop raising their voices to talk over me if they don't like what I'm saying.

Seeing various posts on here is bringing back those conversations real hard, as well as any of the times someone has told me I "think too much," "there's such a thing as being too smart," or to stop using "big words" when I haven't used any with more syllables than the ones they're using and when pressed they'll refuse to tell me what else they mean. I still don't get what all the fuss is about and now it's jabbing at my personal problems. Yaaayyy.

None of this even happened today and I'm still impatient to talk or IM or text with a friend because they don't do that ish.
