Say It. I Dare You.

^ That reminds me of the controversy over Anna Gunn's character on Breaking Bad. She did get a lot of hate, personally. Death threats, etc. I can not even begin to express how effed up I find this, and women are not in it alone. I did hear several people say they did not like her character but I heard more say they did. In turn she got labeled as a character hated by everyone simply because she is a woman. I disliked that much more. It's all based on quick interweb reactions, and many of them being troll like. That hardly covers "everyone". Millions do not respond on line. You are looking at one sample that contains immediate responses and numerous deranged people.

They could not understand why she was not more understanding due to focus on him alone. I didn't meet anyone who hated her strictly for being a woman. That's part of what makes these assumptions so funny to me. Skyler White is hated because she is a strong woman and won't play along. Sansa Stark is hated because she is a seemingly weak woman, plays along with her assigned role and is a victim of the patriarchy. The author of that one made her assessment based on a BuzzFeed Quiz.

A BuzzFeed Quiz... ??? ... Ground breaking research.

*And NO! I am with you. I can't understand the death threats to actors because their character has some flaws and therefore they do? Or to show creators because two people you wanted to hook up, didn't. Or to writers because the material is sexist therefore they must be? It all plays into the same large conclusions formed by reading between lines, and lacking the ability to separate fact and fictional work.*

Powdered alcohol is the dumbest thing since synthetic pot. "And guess what, you can snort it!" Yeah. Why? You would have to snort an entire glass of powder to get the same effect as drinking one glass of WINE. It has a lowered value due to carrying agents. Again, why? I don't understand.

Fifi's choir story reminded me of singing a German song 'in the round' to open up a choir concert. There were 5 or 6 groups of girls spread out thru the auditorium, it was awesome.

Hey!

It occurs to me that you call on X. to babysit the dogs (with pay?), but you won't help her out by weed-whacking her ditch when she works weekends, even when I asked you as a favor, after I mowed her lawn.

I don't understand. Why are you nice to me but not her? She's suffered so much.

Sigh.

I have several friends who are experiencing first world problems and I keep offering up things to say, and I mean them, but I know they won't be taken, seen, read, felt - not the way I mean them. Defenses are too high for them to see past their own "anguish"

I've been working hard on being more positive
and not engaging in the drama that occupies the lives of others
and just being in THIS moment, peacefully

I'm failing horribly today
and I do want to tell my friends to get over themselves and just go sit and watch the ducks - it really isn't that big of a deal (which is not a very positive thing to say to them)

I feel like I'm learning something important about myself and I think I don't necessarily like it -

perhaps *I* need to go watch the ducks

Being able to snort it was given as a pro. I have no idea how. If you want to damage your nasal passages and cause breathing problems, go for it! Another "pro" is that you can take it to work with you and slip it in your drink at lunch. Wha? Some were also calling that a negative because it would be easy to slip it in a poor, unsuspecting, woman's drink. Neither is accurate. Again, you would have to have a wine glass full of powder to equal one glass of red wine. That's a lot of white powder to sneak into work or into someones drink. Good luck with that.


Synthetic pot is the devil. I have handled calls from teens who experienced psychosis from it, and more than one teen in my area has went into seizures and died from using it. How many times have you heard about someone convulsing after smoking pot? Just pot? It's messed up.

I don't exactly know what they are using as a support for the powdered alcohol but I did read something saying it may be sugars. Would you snort a pixie stick?

A kid in my class snorted chalk dust in kindergarten. It was a dare, and his dad was a coke head so he knew how to line up the dust and roll a dollar. Crazy. Random. Lol

It's extremely annoying when grown up people are angry and act like little brats. NO you don't have some stupid right to impose us your opinion. Trying to create dispute with no obvious reason just because you are miserable with something else shows how immature you are!!!! You are already coping something discusting so you are a copycat as well. Go and vent on what REALLY bothers you in your life. *ends my vent*

I found out my in feb that my bf was awarded a research grant to work in a lab over in Japan all summer. He is leaving June 1 and the closer it gets, the more anxious I am. But I am trying my best not to let him see. Because I know it makes him feel bad about going, which is the last thing I want to do. I want to be supportive. This is an amazing opportunity for him, and Im so happy he's earned this, but sometimes it sucks for me.

I'm trying really hard not to let anyone see how sad I am. But I cant keep it inside anymore.

^ Sorry. That is a tough one.


Another hour of sleep would have been welcomed. No naps today! Appointments and a long night.


Eeeeh. I don't recommend reading the comments on a trending Dnews video about half the world not knowing about the Holocaust, and fairly impressive % of people believing stereotypes are true. True, this is the same channel that talked about snorting powdered alcohol and slipping it into peoples drinks so I do give them a What? look, but that still boggles the mind. I understand that the further away you get from something, the less people will know, but at the same time I have witnessed some fairly disturbing comments from women I know on Facebook in the last year. Not things they put on their page but comments they make under news stories they share. The more involved they are in specific college courses, the worse they get. Not something I would have ever expected.

Sometimes I think you're the best person ever and sometimes your moodiness seems like an awful lot of work.

^ That is what I am sitting here thinking about. I just picked up my lab results and am getting ready to do my screening for work. It always makes me nervous that something will be wrong, but the lab's were all perfect. Whew! Now I get to go in here and have them tell me my BP is high and I am obese because I gained a few lbs in the winter. I'm a size 6-8, depending on the jeans. Shudder! I should have brought a sharpie. I need to black out some of these results. It's not of their business if I am pregnant. My doc just includes that in yearly labs. They also tried questioning me on blood work that they do not require one year. I had a lowered Bun due to a med, but all was well. My doc re checked.
