Life recap

HerNameIsBuffy

888 views

Just checking in.  Have been crazy busy for the last month or so.  Doing what? (Asks no one...)

  • working long hours on the biggest project of my career.
  • dealing with the logistics of my divorce including now having to pump my own gas, which is ridiculous.
  • keeping a low profile so until I'm capable of communicating without bleeding my barely contained messy psyche over even innocuous comments.  (You're welcome)
  • coming to grips with my full blown Cinderella complex which is an affliction I've always had, but completely forgot about until it flared up and took over my life
  • getting slapped in the face with shitty messages from the universe which are crystal clear and unambiguous and even I can only ignore for so long before I need to accept.  And respond...

I'm sorry there is so much suckage in your life right now. Thinking happy thoughts for you and Hello Kitty cupcakes for your return.

Hello Kitty cupcakes make me smile no matter what.  I'm convinced I could be in the process of being murdered by a giant squid and still have a surge of happy if someone waved HK deliciousness at me.  :)

I'd chop the squid and make calamari for days! I'm from Jersey so pumping gas isn't my thing, either.

It's settled.  Cupcakes and maybe a knitted plushie. With glitter yarn.

I don't mind pumping gas/putting petrol in the car.  It's pumping up the tyres that I really hate.  And I'm so relieved that they check the oil and water at the yearly service so I don't have to,

But seriously, I hope that the universe gives you a break soon, buffy.  In the meantime, cupcakes sound like a good plan.  Hugs.  :hello-kitty-clap:  (I can never find the hug emoticon despite every other poster on fj finding multiple ones, but this one kind of looks like a hello Kitty is trying to hug you)

Note that the dadgummed thing is DEAD in this.  @HerNameIsBuffy may be perfectly reasonable in her fear of Squid 

Quote

Odori-don is a Japanese dish that literally means ‘dancing squid and rice bowl.’ Pouring soy sauce over a recently dead squid or cuttlefish makes it 'dance’ because although it is deceased, the tissues are still alive and reacting to the high sodium content.

Were that served to me idk if I'd be more horrified by it trying to murder me for the afterlife (squid zombie) or the fact that I would have just wet myself in public.

Giant hugs to Buffy. Sometimes life just sucks. I also hate pumping gas. I can't think of why, but I just do. 

The squid is going to give me nightmares. How could anyone EAT that?!!!!!!!!!

Kind of in the same boat. Having to now learn how to deal with my own finances b/c someone else has been doing it for me for the last 13 years. It really sucks. :tw_bawling:

I don't even know how to deal with the Internet going down or if the computer stops working or if eleventy hundred other things go wrong.

I told my fears to my daughter (who just turned 18 2 weeks ago), and she said: "Mom, it will be fine. We'll get a landline like no one has anymore and we'll get a fucking Mickey Mouse phone and we'll be fine." :pb_lol:

It will get better. Just remember that. It's hard right now, but it will get better.

   Buffy, thinking of you and wishing you the best. The weather will warm up soon and pumping gas won't suck as much! Your clever as fuck, and highly capeable. Don't forget that there are tons of internet strangers that care for you and your well being.

:hug: Buffy! So sorry that life sucks at the moment.

On another note - I learnt to drive here in Thailand at the age of 50 - and I don't KNOW how to pump gas - all stations here are full service - FSM help me if that ever changes.......

      Some more sweet, sweet karma from the Pacific Northwest;

      Quote

      Sean Patrick Duff was on his way to see Baby Driver on Sunday when he saw a white man wearing a red armband walking near 3rd Avenue and Pike Street. The man, whose name is still unknown, was being "belligerent" and "Alex Jones-style yelling" at passersby, which began drawing a small crowd, Duff told The Stranger.

      One bystander, a white man, approached the neo-Nazi and yelled at him to "get the fuck out of our city." The neo-Nazi then called the man an "ape and threw a banana at him," Duff recalled. Within moments, another man ran from across the street and punched the neo-Nazi in the jaw, knocking him out.

      Although he didn't anticipate a physical altercation, Duff said he was "hopeful" that the man donning the Nazi armband would get punched. Duff noted that he was "really high on like 800 mg of THC" and stood back with about a dozen people during the incident. Another bystander caught video of the altercation, and posted it to YouTube, but the service removed the clip for violating "YouTube's policy on harassment and bullying."

      I watched the cooking show thing, and that kinda.. grossed me out. Both for JinJer and Joystin. Why is the woman expected to cook? Make your own goddamn food. For real. Those men are disgusting.

      After the coffee spilling scene, I was left with an uncomfortable feeling when Jeremy said "I wanted coffee, not lava, open it", and watching Jinger's expression change.....I'm not trying to be overdramatic, but I found it chilling.

      Is that in this week's episode?  Ugh.  At best, bossy AF.

      I've always thought there was a reason Jeremy praised Jinger's meekness.  And it isn't a nice one.

      I see that "science" is still a dirty word for her.

      Oh, science isn't a dirty word for these folks.  There's a lot of Creationist "science" at the Ark Encounter.  The only problem is that it's FUBAR science.

      Yea I haven't had a haircut since I got married almost 18 months or. Or a pedicure since then. I only have bought $10 worth of clothes since then. The closest "coffee shop" is Macdonalds.  We have two old high mileage cars. Our honeymoon was at a lodge in a state park, and our only other trip has been camping on our first anniversary. Tex mex fast food or chicken is about as restauranty as we get. We have been to the movies only twice since getting married. 

      These people don't live in reality. The cost of living has skyrocketed and wages haven't kept up. 

      My two dinky part time jobs cover pet food, a few small bills and gas for me car. Takes the edge off of Mr. EW paycheck. 

       

      Its all exhausting and stressful. And "getting ahead" kinda feels like a hopeless endeavor  but it is what it is. At least we have each other.

      What's up with these assholes feeding each other?

      So...if Mr. Confederate Revival saw the photo of Bro Hawkins getting spoon fed the good weens on the go, would he get all, er, hot and bothered.  This is a fundie trend I hope they keep to themselves.
