My mom got a call today from a private number. They left a message, saying something about her being sued by Bank of America and left a call-back number. They also called my original dad (who hasn’t been married to my mom for probably almost 30 years) and wanted him to help reach her, and they also called my current stepdad’s daughter. The callback number is a cell phone in South...
Anonymous asked: just read through your 30 day posts, and gosh darn, don't believe i've ever read anything so clever, yet vulnerable and sincere on a blog anywhere before. up to this point, i didn't even think that kind of thing was possible. don't let this get to your head (and it probably won't, because you don't seem like you would), but the squishy mass of stuff within that...

VIDEO: Rick Mercer's passionate rant on bullying... →
theclosetthinke: This is a recent rant on CBC’s The Rick Mercer Report, Mercer tackled the issue of bullying and teen suicide. Best comment I saw on the video (if you feel like wading through the ignorant ones to get there): I think it’s time to drop the term “bullying,” and call it what it is: abuse and assault. The word “bullying” is too gentle and carries a...
The most important things are the hardest to say. They are the things you get...– Stephen King (via breanagulla)
I have a feeling that I have a doozy of a post brewing. It’s been a while since I’ve had one of those. I’m not sure what the subject will be, but I’m getting that “overwhelmed” feeling that always precedes the big vent posts. I’m bracing myself. Not knowing when it’s going to boil over and spew out is kind of stressful in and of itself…but I...
Wall Street is cheating.
