God give me strength...

Every single time I log into Facebook my friends 16 year old has the same status. "Date or pass? Like my status". 2 days later he does some post about giving a girl all of his heart only to have her rip it out. I want to tell him to shut the hell up! You're 16, neurotic and full of non existent drama. That's a pretty common thing, but this chronic is display is really annoying. Love you, even though you are embarrassing yourself to the point of no return.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

I guess it's good that I can also remember how bad it felt to be told that your problems were not really problems back then. Eventually most figure out it's the truth, unless you went went through an honest tragedy at that age. Your day to day stuff is so dumb, it's unbelievable. It's also a fantastic/new/strange time, if you actually do stay in a "relationship" for more than 2 days and fall in love for the first time. Bittersweet, and a whole lot of stupid.

I'm sure I'll eventually snap and say something.

One of my cousin's has a 16 year old daughter who puts her whole life on Facebook. I just keep my mouth shut, but it's hard not to say something. As time goes on, she's learning to not say quite so much, but...still. I'm just so thankful this stuff wasn't around when I was a kid.

I am so glad none of that was around when I was growing up, too. It's pretty bad. Lol. I'll find the occasional note that makes me laugh hysterically and am thankful it was only read by one person.

I've thought about it, B. It being what it would have been like if social media were available during my teen years. I still can't see myself posting half of the things they post on Facebook. There was a bunch of stuff I did not want my family to know. *I know I've talked about how my friends son posts about drinking and drugs when he friends with teachers, preachers, family, etc and every post is set to public. I'm torn between the part of me that wants to (and does) talk to him/try to protect him and the part of me that knows kids are going to try stuff, just quit being so dumb about it* Hardly anyone pulled out a camera at a party, etc. We were much more private about stuff. You talked to your closest friends and that was it. Now I don't give a damn about sharing some things because... What are they going to do? I'm close to 40, but I still don't say a lot on FB. I don't say where I am and what I am doing, and what I am thinking, every time I make a move. I'm at Ingles... Shocking.

I was very gullible and could have easily fallen prey to someone older and devious and creepy. And, yeah, I'm always amazed at the folks who use that "check in" option to post that they're now at Such-and-Such Garage getting their oil changed, and hey, look! - now I'm at lunch at Whatever Restaurant *WITH* So-and-So *AND* This-Other-Person. *coughsistercough*
^ yeah, i'm not that interesting and the food options here are pretty boring. Bogarts! Weeeee. I've never shared my location, but sadly others have (a few times).

I enjoy posts from friends who are traveling or proud of something they did. One of my old high school friends (his mom started the humane society here) is teaching art to kids in Africa. He just moved there from Columbia. I love his posts. He shares the sweetest pictures and interesting places, but I still don't need to know everything.

** And I only imagine my family on FB then. My parents would not have monitored but others... I couldn't even talk to a boy at a baseball game, at the park, without my parents finding out. Word traveled fast. That's why you kept your mouth shut and though things out.

I do know parents better get ready for pay back. From what I have seen of the end of Y and start of Z, they will have plenty. Life sucks, it's all been done, we have no future, who cares and pass me that bottle. Been there, done that.

At least there should be some good music. :-/

Based on the state of my road, it must have rained very hard last night. Gully washer! Frog strangler, even. I had no clue. I slept like a baby as soon as my head hit the pillow.

Speaking of babies... There were 10 turkey's on my road. 2 young females and 8 babies. They were all around a foot tall. Some just a little bigger, and all super cute.

Oh... Rob Zombie. I always loved the titles of his albums. La Sexorsisto: Devil Music Volume One (always take that man with a grain of silly salt) was excellent for cruising a small town on friday night. Astro-Creep 2000 was great too. I never listened to Hellbilly Volume 1 or Volume 2: Noble Jackals, Penny Dreadfuls, and the Systematic Dehumanization of Cool, but I like the sound of it. And I can not forget the remix album, American Made Music To Strip By.

That just reminded me (of another random thought)

I was going through my cassette tape when we completely cleared the old house and I found my Like a Prayer tape. For those of you who had it and remember, after 25 years the smell of incense still permeates the air when you open it. Pretty amazing.

I really want to go to sleep. I keep trying, but my head is thumping and my cat quite possibly has the loudest motor in the world.

If anyone voted for my son after I posted last week I would like to say thank you. He won!!!

It's a common thing with many young girls.

The judges ruling, and his words, were pathetic. The man involved in this case should have been under the jail. I don't care if you think her actions were older than her age, she was under 16 which is the absolute minimum age of consent, on a state by state basis, for boys and girls, in the US. This man was her teacher, considerably older, and taking advantage of a young girl. It amazes me. I've heard of so many situations where a 16 year old boy is charged and put on the SOR for having consensual sex with his 15 1/2 year old girlfriend of 2 years. The parents find out and freak out. A judge making some comments in a situation like that, I can at least wrap my head around (though it never happens). Going easy on 50 some year old educator and making those remarks about a child who killed herself as a result... In no universe does that need to fly.

I am proud of the protests.
