This morning around 3 am, I woke up to the sound of intermittent beeping. I thought I heard a noise, and then a scratch on the door, but I was just beginning to wake up and realize something was happening. My sore throat had worsened in the night, so it was hard to swallow and my mouth was really dry. I lay in bed for...

Those nights are hard to get through and catch up on.

So let's talk TV, shall we?

I mean, sorry, but I want to talk about TV.

No, I don't have cable. I'm not up on the haps on the current moment. BUT, I do have Netflix and the internetz. That is enough, right?

It is true that most of the shows I watch are entire series that are 5 years old. Um...

Yeah, I was bummed when I realized that you weren't accompanying Caj. It'll be great to see you next time. You're a mighty fine red headed lady smile

Hi! How have you been?

I just started The Walking Dead and love it so far! I'm thinking of starting Battlestar soon. It's on my Netflix and all ready to go. I watched the first season of Portlandia in its entirety a few Friday evenings ago and loved it.

I got completely enraged yesterday after reading a couple of blogs about a trashy teen television drama (Gossip Girl) that portrayed violence against women in a completely horrible light.

See:
The scene from Gossip Girl on YouTube

Jezebel - Violence Passed Off as Romance on Gossip Girl

Sociological Images - Excusing Abusive Behavior on GG

This really triggered a lot of emotions on things that I am...

Totally unacceptable. I applaud you for standing up for healthy relationships and not quasi "sexy" violence which is so prevalent in our mainstream rape culture. You know what, I'm sick of the cad. You go to jail. It was recommended I watch both Gossip Girl and Mad Men. I tried both. I'm all full up on misogynistic, heteronormative (often via troubled homoeroticism), reifications of violence as passion, violence as sex, violence as proof of care so overwhelming that because it is killing you (metaphorically) you must kill your partner (literally, even if by inches). Fuck. NO.

I've got a background that includes a lot of violence, and I will not accept it in my media or casual conversation. Have you read Cunt or Rose by Inga Muscio? They aren't perfect, but they are energizing.

Incidentally, should this job work out I would be stopping this pattern from happening. More on that as it emerges.

Well done.

Merry Christmas, if you so choose to celebrate this holiday!

I am nestled in for the Christmas Eve night by the twinkling tree, have already played Santa for the little one so her morning is filled with joy, and am now enjoying a delicious beer (Three Philosophers' Belgian Style Beer from NY...yum! Belgian beer is my favorite!) and watching A Christmas Story (you'll...

Well, one things I am used to living in Minnesota is snow. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

I don't really mind the snow. It's beautiful, and definitely brings a Christmas-y feeling this time of year. There have been some odd years without snow by this time, and I have always been disappointed about that. It's just not Christmas...

Thank you muchly! We do all have our own perspective, and sometime language is too slippery for an even more fleeting feeling, but alas - to share anyway is lovely. I hope you are enjoying your snow!!

Thank you for your compliment on my video and merry christmas to you! xx

Do people do an introductory post around here? Or is that just silly?

Too bad. I like silly and I like introductions. Let it be so.

The fabulous joker_ got me a membership as a birthday present. What a way to start my 30s, huh? I like it, yes I do. I am still poking around on here, trying to get a feel for the...
