What a Shame

It's so bad, it's good? It has the potential to be a good show after the first few shock episodes are through. Anyone else have Showtime? Have you seen it? What do YOU think?

Forget the plugs

After little bit of reflection, I decided that I acted hastily this morning by running out and buying $50 worth of cooter plugs. I returned all but one box. I'm taking the money and buying a diva cup. I'll let you know how it works in 26 days. 

Who Moved My Tampons?

I'm panicking a little bit. Last night, after some research I discovered that the one true tampon is no longer available. They say it's only temporary, but I don't 'truss it. I have noticed that for the past couple periods that I haven't been able to find the gigantic super plus monster tampons they sell. I didn't think too much about it because I had plenty. I only used those elephant 'pons on the first day or two when I was hemorrhaging. 

Two days ago, I used my last one. "No problema," I thought to myself. "I'll just get more today at the grocery store." I wasn't totally surprised that the commissary was completely out. They do that often. So, I went to Rite Aid last night. They only had regular 'pons. Checked Safeway. Same story. I was annoyed Actually, I was pissed. There are a few things you don't deny a woman while she's on the rag. Tampons is one of them. 

To top it all off, I had to deal with Vivian's shit (literally) when I got home. So, after the shit, I did a 'lil investigative journalism to get the lowdown on the mystery of the disappearing 'pons. 

This

And this

That's why I went back to Rite Aid today and did this:


I bought $47.94 worth of plugs. That's 240 little tubes of absorbent cotton with cute little greenish-blue strings. I HAVE A YEAR'S SUPPLY OF COOTER PLUGS!!!! Maybe even two years!! What a good Mormon I am! 

But they're just regular absorbency. Anyone wanna sell me a few ultras?

Another passive aggressive post from yours truly - updated

I am not the first one to complain about people on Facebook. I know I won't be the last one either. However, today, there are waaay too many infractions on there for me to NOT say something.

  1. Continuous prayer requests from the same person about the same thing with an at least three-times-a-day update about their situation. Ok. I get it- you and your family are sick. You got the flu/cold the other day. First it was one kid, next it was the entire family. Shit happens. People get sick. It's a virus. It must run its course. I'm sorry to be the one to break it to you, but no amount of prayers or pleads for prayers will help you. God has more important things to worry about like curing cancer. He doesn't have time to worry about you and your cold. 
  2. Twitter updates. I'm not just talking about the occasional, "OMG I just saw Justin Beiber at the mall!" That's fine. What I am talking about is a ton of broken, unintelligible spurts of random information that I can't understand that take up so much space on my news feed that I can't see anything else on the small screen of my iPhone but your stupid twitter updates. 
  3. Your entire agenda for the day. This is the attention seeking individual who overachieves and then brags about it constantly in order to boost her self esteem. Why do people play into it? People fail to realize that by commenting about how amazing they are or how they admire their ability to do so much, they are only encouraging more bad behavior. 
  4. Quotations by other people. Yeah, they are inspirational/witty, but that's all you have to say? Don't you have your own thoughts? I am your friend because I care what YOU have to say, not what some ancient philsopher, celebrity, or author has to say. 
  5.  ** Sports play by plays. Just watch the fuckin' game and get off the damn blackberry. No one really wants to see your commentary about a stupid football game. If I wanted to know what's going on, I'd be watching the game. I'm not and I don't. 
And yeah, I realize that my blog is little more than a glorified Facebook status. Whatever. Kiss my ass.

Realization

Ya know when you watch a movie or tv show and there is a team of two or more people and the 'leader'* is very controlling and doesn't take the advice of the other people in the group, even if it's a good idea. But then the 'leader' ends up taking their advice, but only after he twists things around like it was his idea in the first place? 

I was thinking about that today as I was vacuuming my house. (I do my best thinking while vacuuming.) I came to the realization that the 'leader' does that because he doesn't respect the people on his team. He doesn't have the confidence in himself to say, "Great point. Let's do that." He feels that by recognizing the other members' contribution, he diminishes his position as the superior member in the group. What he doesn't realize is that he is doing just the opposite. By not acknowledging the valid points of the members, he just makes himself look silly and inferior. Especially when he is called out on it. 

My challenge to you is to be more humble. If someone does something well, tell them. If they do it better than you, tell them. If they have a good idea, tell them. If their idea is better than yours, make sure you let them know. It's by encouraging the people around us to be better that we become better. How else could I be as awesome as I am? I'm surrounded by people that are far more awesomer than myself.
