It’s chilly and I think I’m catching a cold. YUCK! Cijimcb, I think it’s fantastic you went through all that to become a teacher. Those are the reasons I didn’t and probably never will (can’t afford it and don’t have the time—that’s A LOT of time). I’ve been cleaning the house like a mad woman and haven’t been on here much. I still have...

kelsium: (via cijimcb) This applies to almost everything. No one has it easy.

In the past few months I’ve seen JGH grow more than people her age do in five years. Granted, I haven’t seen every single post she’s written but she certainly doesn’t lash out or fight with every single person. She has engaged in civilized debates. I’m not sure where all this crap is coming from but it’s a bit much. She wants to be a teacher and God knows we...
chuffedlittlemuffin: IT’S “YOU ARE IN A CELL”! FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUU Vincent D’Onofrio was in The Cell.
I ask what he wants to do next. “My usual answer to ‘What am I proudest of?’ is my novels, but really I am most proud that, despite enormous temptation, I have never killed anybody and you don’t know how tempted I have been.” That wasn’t my question, I say. “Well, given that I’m proudest that I haven’t killed anybody, I might be saving something up for someone.” A perfect line: we both laugh. ...
cijimcb: When you are Black, and you do something The Overlords of Blackness deem to be not Black enough, it must be because you hate being Black. See also: speaking proper English, playing golf/hockey, being a good father/mother, treating your dog like one of the family. The Negroarchy (say it with me: knee-grow-ar-key). The Patriarchy’s darker, more oppressive cousin. I knew what you were...

Well, there are riding lawn mowers Woolie.
(via vindicatedcommunications) Thank God we didn’t have to have that lecture. Yard’s too small.
I am not going to justify my hair to you.
cijimcb: So the next time you look at me and wanna run your mouth off about my hairstyle choice being about “self hate” consider this: Fuck you and your judgment. Fuck you right in the ear. I, myself, hate my hair. Is that self hate? Who does stuff like this? How is it okay to actually say something like that to someone?
(via subjecttomeg) Yes!
Roman Polanski's Friends Should Probably Shut Up →
aatombomb: Agreed. Really, Whoopi?
It’s really a bit unsettling when the boys yell “FIRE! There’s a FIRE, mommy!” Especially when it’s before I’ve figured out they’re playing fireman.
cijimcb: You know how some want Hollywood-types to STFU about global/domestic issues like Darfur and Katrina? Well, I wish they’d STFU about defending Polanski. See, those complainers have a point. This Polanski thing is an example of Hollywood running it’s mouth off, getting a little big for it’s britches, talking out of it’s ass about something it knows little about. But they have no clue...

Lots of problems at this Wal-Mart. Unfortunately it’s the one where we shop. I don’t know how anyone could leave a baby behind but 17 is awfully young. MORAINE — The eight-week-old girl abandoned by her mother during a shoplifting arrest at a Moraine Wal-Mart on Monday evening, Sept. 28, is in the custody of the children service division of the Montgomery County Department of Job and...

The bride received a Rolls Royce as her wedding gift. The groom’s barber came to the wedding. FROM LONDON!
We went to a wedding in Wilmington last year of a friend Mr Woolie knew when they were kids. A really nice guy who went through a lot in the past few years. Now there’s huge family drama and it made the front page of the newspaper! Families and businesses don’t go together very well, I guess.
I played with my Lite Brite for, like, a week...
It was fun and exciting at first but then when I ran out of patterns I stopped playing with it. The boys will be getting one when I can be reasonably sure they won’t eat the pegs or lose them some other way. I think almost all the marbles for Hungry, Hungry Hippo are gone now.
Sorry about that last rant. Hope this makes it all...
pleasedontsqueezetheshaman: Of course it fucking does.
Why does my entire fucking wardrobe suck?
(via love-and-radiation) Because it’s Fall and that’s what happens!
Well, that was a positive post
