I was thinking EST while I watched the episode, but the T.Lo guys said it's too early for EST. I think it's too early for Scientology as well, but not certain. Also, there are a number of practicing Scientologist actors on the show so I doubt they would do a critical take on Scientology. » 4/15/14 12:15pm Tuesday 12:15pm

I used to work in a really boring office and I never had enough work to do, so I would bring my Kindle and read discreetly while waiting for something to do. Anyway, I had heard this book was good so I downloaded it to read in the office. BIG mistake. HUGE. I sat there, having to stifle my uncontrollable sobbing while… » 4/14/14 2:45pm 4/14/14 2:45pm

I hate this shit so much. There are all these snobby bitches who move in the same circles as my husband's work colleagues. I hate them profoundly and topping the list of reasons is the fact that the only time they ever include me in any of their "events" is when they are having some bullshit "party" to promote whatever… » 4/09/14 11:47am 4/09/14 11:47am

I could have written this post. I can not afford, nor do I want, to quit working. My husband makes an ok living as a public defender, but it's not like we're rolling in dough. If we lost my income and health insurance it would really put a dent in our life. My mother lives two hundred miles away. She also still works… » 4/08/14 6:54pm 4/08/14 6:54pm

Goddamnit. Bobcats are wild animals. They are not house pets. Sure he's gentle until he eats your other pets and claws your eyes out. People are so fucking stupid. I just hope Rocky gets to go live in a wild life sanctuary instead of getting put down by animal control. » 4/07/14 6:28pm 4/07/14 6:28pm

Fracking isn't going away unless some kind of extreme disaster happens because of it. I feel very conflicted about fracking. On one hand, I feel like it's an environmental catastrophe waiting to happen. On the other hand, do you know the kind of jobs it's creating? I live in an area where a lot of fracking is going on, … » 4/07/14 5:52pm 4/07/14 5:52pm

FWIW, you can still have a wedding but not have bridesmaids. When I got married I had been in three weddings each, no matter how "chill" or down to earth the bride was, ended up costing me around $1,000. The only one I didn't resent the hell out of was my own sister, and I decided before I even met my husband that… » 4/07/14 4:36pm 4/07/14 4:36pm

I went to one of the first SxSW festivals. I bought a wrist band for $60 that got me into the music AND movies. I made it into every single show/film that I wanted to see. It wasn't crowded, beer wasn't marked up at all, I found parking right down town every single day, and I generally had a blast. I went for at least… » 4/05/14 11:21am 4/05/14 11:21am

Then vote Dem until it passes. If more sane Republicans like you would forgo party loyalty (difficult, I know as a hard-line Dem), the teabaggers couldn't get the votes they need. Too many of you guys are towing the party line and getting in bed with Fascist radicals like Ted Cruz without thinking of the consequences. » 4/03/14 3:23pm 4/03/14 3:23pm

I call them "Woo Girls." Because in Austin, they always get way too drunk at shows and festivals then stand around going, "WOooooOO! WOO! WOooOOOOO!" Even during really quiet parts of a song or whatever. Then at the end of the night they take off their heels, sit on a curb, and start crying because of some bro. » 4/02/14 2:33pm 4/02/14 2:33pm

What's sad is that CPS in Texas is committed to keeping children with family above all else. It is highly likely that he will be placed with other relatives and these sorry excuses for humans will one day again have access to him. It's doubtful that he will end up in a great adoptive home. It will likely be with some… » 4/02/14 11:55am 4/02/14 11:55am
