What is this with sleep evading my household today? I just want a freaking nap before work! I'm so exhausted, yet can't sleep a wink.

Feeling very proud of my son, who will be going for his EMT certification this fall!

"Enjoy the go?" Seriously, Charmin? Well, I suppose it's better to "enjoy the go" than to "strain for a go" or have the splats.

Livin' La Vida Celibate

There are many reasons why a person would choose celibacy. I was married for 11 years, the last 5 of which were pure hell. I got into a lot of abusive relationships. I have borderline personality disorder and do not choose healthy people. If I were younger I might go into counseling to change this but the facts are, I have been celibate for 12 years and I actually do not want another relationship again. I dislike casual sex, so I don't go for sex outside a relationship. What I really hate is when people act like I'm doing something bad or wrong by choosing to be celibate. They don't know what it's like to live inside my mind and heart. I don't tell them not to have sex!

Dr. Fraud's Controversial Therapy

What I saw when I walked into Dr. Fraud's office

Dahlings, I know that Dr. Fraud claims to be the father of Brainular Knowledge, but I am shocked by this new therapy of his! When I walked into his office for my psychotherapy appointment yesterday, he was not quite done with his previous session and I interrupted him. I certainly wish I had never seen that appalling sight! I hope he doesn't think that I will agree to such treatment, because I would sooner get genetic counseling from Dr. Schitz than allow Dr. Fraud to slap my buttocks for an hour!


This was my response to a post on the Spirit Companion blog about change.

Unlike last year the changes this year seem mostly good though stressful in some ways. My ex husband is finally gone for good. He isn't a horrible person but he is a very negative person. With him gone I've been able to start really going through stuff and trying to clean up so I can sell the house but it will be a long road. My son is feeling better, was able to get off all the antidepressant medications, is doing yoga, and is involved in getting various certifications. I will hopefully finally graduate from this long, onerous nursing program that I've been in forever. And hopefully there will be a move next year.
Change scares me even when it's good. I've always been taught to fear it. I'm trying to learn to go with the flow.

About to take my Microbiology midterm. Nobody better call me during this time!

The muffins they make at Big Daddy's Bagels are DELICIOUS! The day-olds are only 75 cents. And I wonder why I need to lose a pound or 50.

The mustard sauce on this pork is good but now that the pork is gone I've just got mustard rice. A little overpowering!

Looks like a good night for tomato soup and grilled cheese.

Torrid Tempest: Sheriff Joe

Sheriff Joe

I don't know if you'll be able to read my Facebook friend Blackie's note if you're not a member of Facebook, but he is discussing the tented prison camp run by Sheriff Joe Arpaio in Maricopa County, Arizona. These prisoners don't need a gym, because they're doing hard time. Here is my comment:

My father often said that if they brought back hard labor in prison, fewer people would end up back in prison. I find myself agreeing.
"Criminals should be punished for their crimes - not live in luxury until it's time for parole, only to go out and commit more crimes so they can come back in to live on taxpayers money and enjoy things many taxpayers can't afford to have for themselves."
Exactly! It enraged me when I found out the kinds of meals that OJ Simpson was complaining about having to eat in prison. Lasagna? I would have loved to have lasagna! At the time all I was able to afford was spaghetti and a bottle of Ragu and some potatoes. This had to last an entire week.

Hating life as a failure living on the fringes. Today I wish I were rich, beautiful, and loved rather than broke, ugly, and misunderstood.

Sometimes working for humane treatment of animals is terribly depressing. One learns of all the horrific maltreatment of animals. Ppl suck.

While I'm complaining, may I say that I hate swallowing big horse pills. My mineral supplement comes in a horse pill.

Tempest's hints for happy living #2: Do avoid being bipolar, having borderline personality disorder, or having OCD. They are a real downer!

Tempest's hints for happy living: Don't allow your freeloading friend or relative to stay for so long they accumulate junk to leave you.

Tempest's hints for preparing for a big move. #1: don't accumulate a lot of junk over the years! Having tons of stuff to go thru is misery.

Sometimes all the mood regulating pills in the world aren't going to help. Sometimes one really does just feel overwhelmed and unhappy.

My bootstraps have stopped working. I am very depressed and overwhelmed at the moment.

Animal Anarchy: Shopt Till I Dropt

Middle Finger At the Ready

Dahlings, Tempest is not normally the sort to utilize obscene gestures or foul language. But there are instances that lead even a proper lady such as myself to make an exception. In this particular instance, the "social network" Facebook informed me that I was adding friends too quickly and that if I continued to commit this social atrocity, they would delete my profile.

Dear facebook, kiss my ample patootie. As I said to one of the lovely folks at the Put an End to Animal Crush Videos group when they pointed out that there are plenty of crush-related pages on your platform:

This surprises me not at all. Facebook allows the worst of trash, such as a picture of an actual suicide, but they banned one of my friends for having a slightly risque photo of herself holding cupcakes with cherries on top in front of her (clothed) breasts. They gave me a warning that they would ban me for adding friends too quickly! But if I had some horrific photo on my page? No problem, as long as no-one is naked, I guess!
The widely distributed suicide photo shows the desperate final act of the Swedish heavy metal vocalist Per Yngve Ohlin. Not only is there no respect for this person himself when people display this dreadful photograph  but there is complete disregard for the feelings of his surviving family members. I read somewhere that one of his brothers asked some dirtbag webmaster to please remove the offending photo and the webmaster refused to do so. Which, in my view, makes them the lowest quality of scum. 

Among the other types of music I enjoy I do like the extreme metal genres (although I can't say I would at this moment because I have an extremely bad headache that is not being relieved by anything)  but I do not join most of the Facebook fan groups because the idiot fans seem to believe that this photograph is perhaps no different from a Cannibal Corpse album cover. 

Yet I have ventured from my original point, which is that Facebook is dreadfully hypocritical and has skewed priorities. Photographs depicting the murder of helpless animals and the suicide of a troubled person? La de da! People having a lark holding cherry-topped cupcakes in front of their breasts? Horrifying! And people making connections with others? We'll not be having that! 

There are some things that I enjoy about Facebook. Hypocritical policies such as these do not make the list.
The point I strayed

Too much going on now. Will be nice when some of it resolves.

I've a terrible headache, only on the left side of my head. It's probably coming from my neck. I do wish I could afford a massage!

The Zoo game looks cute and I would probably play if I had time. But why does everyone abandon their helpless newborn baby animals? A vote for Lafayette is a vote for cuteness! The product is funny but the comments really clinch it.

Silly Places for a Sexual Encounter

This was my response to this week's Terrible Poster Tuesday winner.

I don't like to nitpick, except when the door has been opened to nitpicking. Aren't piranhas fresh water fish? Wouldn't they die an agonizing death in the ocean? And as to sex, wouldn't that rubber raft collapse if one attempted to have sexual relations on it? I've heard of, and might consider sex on the beach, but not sex on a rubber raft in the middle of the ocean. That is an activity which is destined for failure.
This ridiculous poster may fit the movie quite well, actually, as the premise is rather silly.
