First World Problems
I hate riding in Lincoln town cars. The upholstery smell makes me barfy. When we used to get car service (during the fat days of Wall Street) I’d lie in the back of the limo with my eyes shut tight and count all the way from Manhattan until we reached Bankersville.
Tonight my mother actually said, “(Girls/women) who don’t care about being pretty is pitiful.”
They raided my mom's closet for Peggy's clothing
It’s surreal how many outfits are copies of what she wore.
So are we to believe that Don's perverted sense of...
he lived in a brothel and saw his pregnant mom boinking his “uncle”? In other words: young dick traumatized by older cock? “I’m the rooster.”
So once our neighbor caught his wife cheating
She was boinking her running partner/trainer. The jerk of a husband found out and went ballistic. They fought. He called the police. The police blotter reported the dude got upset because she destroyed his cell phone. After the divorce he compensated by buying a Porsche.
The rise of the young(er generation) and the...
One of themes of tonight’s “Mad Men”, yes?
I have lots of free time…but there’s no neighbor’s husband I’d wanna boink here.
I wonder if my neighbors here in Bankersville
are boinking each other a la Pete Campbell.
Somebody wanna do me a favor
and run to the pharmacy to pick up my new med, Crestor? Yeah, my cholesterol is at 300. !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Partly due to genes/heredity, and partly due to Abilify. My new PCP declared I was the easiest patient she’s ever had. After telling her about the stuff going on, we both chuckled. Hey the bad cholesterol is nothing compared to everything else! And not only is the stress elevating my...
I’ve been very busy running my daily life on the weekdays, then commuting on weekends from CT to MD to care for sick Mama Kitty. Plus I am spending time monitoring Kong-kong daily, so he doesn’t have any more breakdowns about schoolwork. All the while I have kept my Friday volunteer hours at the food pantry. This past Tuesday was the annual luncheon for all volunteers. There are...
I'm too poor
to live in Bankersville. Chatted with the school librarian about shoes. Her loafers are Stuart Weitzman.
Is it true that Roger Ebert
was voted “most likely to be a legend in his own mind” by his senior class? I remember him saying this in an interview, or did I imagine it?
Ebert’s reviews were always deeply alive to human concerns, rather than...– Alyssa Rosenberg on remembering Roger Ebert as a critic and a liberal. (via think-progress) BTW the answer is: Carmela
I wish Daniel was my uncle.
Young lady– Last weekend I was called “young lady”! I am 48. Granted I was at the pharmacy at Mama Kitty’s retirement community.
aka14kgold replied to your post: Yes I am still alive Getting 504s is so fucking hard it defeats the point of the legislation, I swear. Yup, I know this.
Yes I am still alive
but running around like a mad woman who has no time to be mad. Still watching and caring for anxiety-ridden Kong-kong who is still doing poorly with school,which is the source of his anxiety and depression. Gotta take him to tutoring and counseling each week, supervise his homework, and am still fighting to get him a 504 plan. Still commuting from CT to MD each weekend to tend Mama Kitty...
I would divorce him if I could, but...
I need the health insurance and Mr. Kitty would hire a lawyer to keep me from his money. Yes he refers to his money, not ours, not the family’s. His because he works. What’s going on: today while discussing about hiring another tutor, as recommended by the therapist, for Kong-kong Mr. Kitty rejected the idea. We, I mean HE “is already paying through the nose”—each...
re: Roger Ebert
I’m so old I remember watching Siskel and Ebert’s “At the Movies” on PBS back in high school. I usually agreed with Roger’s reviews, though 10% of the time I thought he was dead wrong, but I always admired and respected his writing. Beautiful essays.
So on this day of reflection I say again, thank you for going on this journey...– The last sentence of Roger Ebert’s last blog post. (via nedhepburn) R.I.P. (via motherjones) You’ll be much missed, sir. Rest in peace. (via josephinabiden) I hope he’s chilling with Gene Siskel. (via billiethepoet) Such sad news. My heart goes out to Chaz as well. (via glossylalia) ...
Somebody burned the brisket! So that’s what you ladies look like without...– A resident It’s 2:35 AM and I’m outside Mama Kitty’s retirement condo as the fire alarm blares—and the snow falls. Everyone’s standing around shivering waiting for the “all clear” from the firemen.
Mama Kitty is home from the hospital
Today was an ordeal with Mom feeling the cure was worse than the disease. She was prodded, poked, and couldn’t get decent rest. That is how hospitals are; they’re for treatment not comfort. Anyhoodle she improved immensely overnight, so the doctor discharged her. Dr. Brother Kitty used subtle persuasion (jedi mind trick) to convince him. As for poor Miss Hill she is stuck in the hospital,...
shmenderson: Can we talk about the word queue How many of those letters are really necessary I count one Paging AKA24KGold! What was that about French having unnecessary letters in their words?
Oh HELLO KITTY NO!!
Demented (yes that is a medical term) Miss Hill stripped off her nightgown and blankets last night. And this morning the charge nurse told the attending nurse, “She has a future as a stripper.” ARE YOU SERIOUS NURSE BITCH?! Not funny. That’s not how you talk about an octegenarian patient no matter how far gone she is. No that nurse is not tending Mama Kitty.
Mama Kitty is moaning (she has chronic pain) and Miss Hill is rambling, “what you trying to do, stupid?! Stupid person!” Nobody in room 514 is having a restful night.
melanieexox: agentbering: this is the greatest thing I have read all day Related true story: Dr. Papa Kitty was an OB-GYN. One night he was called to the ER to extract hardened plaster of paris from a dood’s doody hole. The fool was a med student who wanted to make a cast of his insides and started with his rectum—or so he claimed. Only Dr. Papa Kitty and his small hands...
Bacon. Yes pancakes. Scrambled eggs!– Mrs Hill, Mama Kitty’s hospital roomie. While we were taking mom’s food order poor Mrs. Hill was calling hers out through the room curtain.
I think she’s a mental case!– Mama Kitty’s assessment of her roomie. She blasted her pronouncement loud enough for the nurse’s station to hear. Good thing her roomie is demented.
Altered mental state– That’s what Mama Kitty’s medical chart says. She’s still loopy at times, keeps telling me how delicious the hospital food is. !!!!!!
They’re TORTURING ME!– Mama Kitty’s greeting as I entered her hospital room today. There is still some infection, so she is still here at Montgomery Gen. If nothing bad happens she may go home in two days. P.S. Thank you very much tumblr frayns for your support.
No clearance yet
K-k and I met with the p-doc for the evaluation to clear his return to school. [[MORE]]He diagnosed depression— not so much anxiety—and is concerned that if K-k returns to school and stresses out his symptoms will return. Better that he stay at home with me and get treatment (meds) ASAP. I’m going to make an appointment with a local p-doc who knows and works with Dr. K the...
Worst part of last weekend
It wasn’t the rushing to MD because Mama Kitty was in the I.C.U. with sepsis, or that I had to clean up her toilet which had explosive diarrhea (sorry), or getting rid of the food that had been sitting on her kitchen counters for 8 days rotting and molding (yes she was ill that long and thought it was a bad flu), or sitting by her bedside listening to her moan in pain. It was the vending...

It’s beautiful. And yes my pantry is date-stocked too, but the foods aren’t lined up so well.
First Same-Sex Wedding at Tokyo Disney Resort →
generasian: Koyuki Higashi (left) and her partner Hiroko tied the knot last Friday at Tokyo Disney Resort, marking the first same-sex marriage for the theme park. As you can see from the picture, Mickey and Minnie decided to join in on the celebration! Unfortunately, Japan does not yet recognize same-sex marriages; however, the ceremony was met with overwhelming online support. Many...
A Safe Space
K-k’s advisor called me back as did the school social worker, so now I am clear on K-k’s status. K-k will meet with a p-doc Thursday and hopefully he’ll be cleared to return to school Friday. He’s suppose to keep up with academics while he’s out, which strikes me as weird because how does a depressed person stay focused on academics?? But at home K-k doesn’t...
