I’m not trying to ‘accomplish’ anything other than share my thoughts, that you are free to ignore.

Addiction is a disease, it’s extremely difficult to overcome and some people aren’t able to do it. Those are facts and facts aren’t always pleasant. Getting 4 months clean is a wonderful accomplishment — it will continue to be hard work to stay clean. If you go out, is it because you didn’t work hard enough or because you don’t love your family enough or because you’re just weak? or is it because addiction is a tough opponent and not everyone wins against it?

Accepting and acknowledging how hard it is to beat an addiction doesn’t mean NOT trying, it means not underestimating how hard it is and how tricky your opponent is.

I wish all the best.

I appreciate the sentiment behind referring to his death as “devastatingly preventable” but I don’t think that’s the case. Addiction is not preventable, because it is a disease, a very destructive and insidious one. PSH was clean for decades, worked a program and checked himself into rehab last year. As much as we can tell based on what he said when he talked about it, he was trying hard to manage his disease.

I don’t mean to pick on you but I have been dismayed over the past days reading comments about his death that don’t seem to understand or believe that addiction is a recognized disease and being able to manage it successfully is not a matter of willpower or strength or having people who love you or kids who depend on you or having the money to afford treatment — those things can help but they are no guarantee of success.

Obviously, this is a topic close to my heart. and I understand how it can seem like he “chose” this and if he didn’t make that choice, this could have been prevented. When you’re an addict though, you are literally having to make that choice a thousand times a day…the choice not to use. It’s exhausting to live that way.

Bad Santa (duh)
Meet Me in St. Louis

George C. Scott version of A Christmas Carol
Miracle on 34th Street (OG, non-colorized, for Chrissake)

Argh, this flattened me when I was watching on WCVB…when the kid in the red sweatshirt starts tearing up, I lost it. We have had exceptionally shitty local news in Boston this week (horrible details on a murdered teacher, and a guy who killed his whole family and himself) and this story was a tiny little ray of hope for humanity.

Clicked over to read the interview – very good journalism happening there, very hard-hitting questions.

“Do you believe women occasionally make the wrong choices with products and their skincare routines?”

We’re not all trying our best. Either that or some people’s best is really terrible.

How is Sweet puppy wake-up not every video? As soon as the hand comes in and we see how tiny the puppy is, game over.

What the fuck do you care what she does with her own body? Seriously, fuck you. How in the hell does this even affect you?

I give up on the internet today, people are terrible.

She didn’t say that women who “especially” have a family history should get the test. The quote above is very clearly NOT saying that:

“I want to encourage every woman, especially if you have a family history of breast or ovarian cancer, to seek out the information and medical experts who can help you through this aspect of your life, and to make your own informed choices.”

All she is saying is take care of your health, take control of your health, and then make informed decisions. Nowhere does it recommend women with a family history should definitely get the test.

but I guess it wouldn’t be the internet if people didn’t find something to criticize or misread.

A measure of how dark this episode was is that everything else that happened made the Francis house seem like a relatively happy/normal place (even with Betty’s deranged attempt at “pillow talk”).

Many of your questions can be answered by knowing that Betty is the worst.

although, I think Betty vs. the dirty hippies may have been Betty at her most likable since she shot up the birds.

I love Henry’s mom (Pauline?).

He’s allowed to, but it is very hard (TWSS) to be a rich, successful, handsome, talented, gorgeous celebrity (I love you Jon!) and not come off like a uhm, you know. Because you are essentially complaining about that too many people know your penis is really big.

If this is the worst consequences of achieving success beyond your wildest dreams (and success that is due in no small part to HOW YOU LOOK , you might just want to STFU about it.

I thought the Harry Styles gif was Alyssa Milano. True story!

Hmm. Young attractive girl, camera lingers a bit on her thigh-ish area. I think reading the YT comments on this one would require a Silkwood shower.

Kelly did you see the Too Cute with the mini-pigs, hedgehogs and lop-eared bunnies? Oh my lord.

 +3Posted on Feb 27th, 2013 | re: Nightmare Incident Report: TOO MANY BATS (32 comments)

I was in Melbourne in the Royal Botanical gardens, having a nice amble around the place, when I found myself pretty deep in some woods and I looked up and….oh my god. They were EVERYWHERE. I was paralyzed with fear, bats in my hair is THE nightmare and yes, they were 50 feet above me but STILL. Terror.

I read later that their guano (poop) s basically destroying the trees.

Damn, now, we need more comments. I only watch this silly show so I can enjoy this letter every week. Can we mention the poor torture victim in the basement? Someone finally comes to ‘save’ her – she thinks – but instead leaves her TIED UP in the basement. And then goes and gets himself captured. #worstrescueever

I watched this season twice and I STILL don’t understand what information got Bates out of jail. Somethin about what time his wife made pastry? What??

“Musicvideocasting2013@gmail.com” sounds like an email address they would use in an SUV episode about a teenage girl who was found raped and murdered after going on an audition she found out about online: “The victim responded to an ad placed by a ‘musicvideocasting2013@gmail.com’.”

I think the theme to this show is “Kevin Bacon has bills to pay”.

This is a deeply silly show.

“She’s one of them!”

“no duh” – Every viewer.

It’s impossible for me to tell you how much I need this right at this moment. Scottie pinwheel is the only thing that is getting me thru this day without crying.
