So, I’m just going to crib some stuff from others because I’m in the middle of things. I’m pushing back a bit on some things and it kind of terrifies me because the last time I did that it didn’t work out so well — I got to spend the next several years in hell while I looked around and tried to figure out how I had gotten where I was and what I was going to do next so that the current hell wasn’t the rest of my life. But I’m going to have faith this time and I’m not going to let anyone else define me — I allow that to happen far too much. So, really, no more.
Moving on…The Coach and I have continued our discussion of Breitbart and, as a matter of course, he tells me his brother had this to say, and I think it’s brilliant: “So many liberals are atheist and support gay rights, but the second someone they don’t like dies, they talk about how they hope he’s in hell getting gay with Hitler.” Perfect. I think the man himself would have liked that.
The Coach has already begun scheduling our double-headers for the upcoming softball season and I think we have our first practice at the end of the month. Looking forward to that. And apparently, one of our Saturday double-headers is LSU/Tulane, prompting Lynz to say, “This should be a good time.” Indeed. Also, because I’m pretty redheaded and freckly, I have to wear a hat during the tournament or I get overheated and have asthma attacks. Kinda sucks. Last year I wore my Cato hat but it’s not the right color red — more of an Alabama red, and we really can’t have that. So, I think I found my new softball hat.
Also, while we’re on WSJ.com, couldn’t agree more. I’ve met some of these people and they are potentially damaging opportunists. Money quote: “‘The only reason I started calling myself a psychopath is because it got me a complete walk from the Feds,’ he admits.” Yep, telling the truth only if it has utility. Scary stuff.
Michael Strok,this is why we are friends.
For me it’s also because I think G+ appeals to the worst things about exclusion and inclusion that humanity has to offer. Facebook offers degrees of control — more like life. G+ is almost marketing this as “the inner ring.” And we know how I feel about that.
Here recently, I’m pretty sure there was an attempt to gaslight me. Unfamiliar with the phrase? Well, if you’re a woman, you should learn it. I had an ex-boyfriend in my early 20s who tried it all the time. Every time I stood up for myself (usually necessary because there was yet another stringy-haired blond bimbo somewhere in the mix) he called me crazy and said I should go talk to someone. Ass. The worst is that I believed him. Heh. Score another for the wisdom of age. Because my anger at your crap behavior is not insanity. It’s a moral imperative. Below is the fantastic film from whence we pull the concept. Ingrid Bergman was amazing.
I don’t know man, this just sounds like some whiny business about something that is readily available, fairly cheap, and NOT A PROBLEM! Should Rush have flapped his gums about her relative enjoyment of numerous sexual partners? Of course not. But let’s not forget that she’s full of it.
Sometimes, when I get angry at people for their insensitivities, I watch this video and feel better because YOU DON’T KNOW ANYTHING. None of us do.
