wtf happened to Twin Dragon cookies. They used to be yummy. Just ate two and they were boring.
Right? I stopped eating them eons ago because they taste like cardboard. They were so flavorful when I was a kid. - Anika
Yes! I was craving that taste from my childhood and passed up bread with dinner for them damn cookies. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
The only problem I have with the Focus movie is, according to the ads, the guy makes hella money in part by identity fraud, a crime I find despicable. I'm supposed to root for him?
In bed, streaming the Warriors game. Then maybe I'll read. Living it up, living it up, oh yeah. Friday nite.
My jeans are literally falling off my hips and even my leggings have gotten loose.
Stress diet. I do not recommend. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Boo, stress. - Kirsten
:( - Yolanda from Android
:( - Heather
Sorry, boo. The stress and depression diets are terrible. :( - AHnix (Anna Haro)
Thank you real life for getting me out the house today & keeping me busy. Thank you internet for making me LOL & thank you Warriors for playing a good game even in defeat. Night y'all, lets all laugh together tomorrow, too.
Our neighborhood branches are closed on Mondays, but the main library happens to be halfway between the courthouse and where I'd parked. So I got to check out books today! A Monday!
(Empire of Sin: A Story of Sex, Jazz, Murder, and the Battle for Modern New Orleans by Gary Krist, and Land of Love and Drowning by Tiphanie Yanique) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
About to meet with the attorney and learn what happens next. Brave face on!
Good luck! - Anika
There were a bunch of errors in the owner's complaint that I didn't catch. Attorney prepared an amended answer that I'm on my way to file. This is to buy us time but the scariest part is wondering if in the end the court will order me to pay the owner for the time we've been here not paying rent. That would take all the $$ I've saved up for a move in/deposit. But, all that in time. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Keep the faith. And let us know how we can help. You know we got your back. - Mary Carmen
I do know that. Thank you, Luv. got a referral to meet with a lawyer from a different group who may represent me further. I talk to that person on Wednesday. - Starmama
one step at a time. we're here all the way, doll. - t-ra needs this place
Sorry I dropped the ball on packing, but I can help in other ways if you need it. Good luck!!! - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
Dangit, there's a web series based on the Detective Bosch books but I don't have Amazon whatever to watch it.
You Tube on my phone means I can watch & sing along to clips from Carmen Jones without getting out from under the covers.
Sick of remarks about getting free stuff, the phrase public assistance spoken in a certain tone, assumptions being made about freeloading. In situations where I'm obliged to remain pleasant and businesslike. I tell people Fuck You, in my head, constantly.
Like, I don't get a damn thing for free. Not even J's MediCal. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Like, what were you doing in 1984? 1995? 2001? Because I was working 40+ hours a week for decades, bitch. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
The dilemma becomes, do I pay $25 to apply for this apartment when I'm 99% sure this mufu would never rent to me. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Anything can happen in a 4th quarter, but right now Warriors are whupping on Spurs. The Spurs! This game is great.
Got an actual, official, filed with the court eviction notice today. Finally! Something I can respond to! I was quite pleased to see several errors (lies), which I hope will work to my favor. Off to the courthouse in the morning...
Good luck, Mandy! *hugs* - Anne Bouey
Give 'em hell. *hugs* - Jennifer Dittrich from iPhone
All the best with everything ((hugs)) - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Go get em girl. - Corinne L
Good luck! - Brent Schaus from iPhone
Go get 'em, Mandy! - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Go get 'em, tiger! - Melly
*Crosses fingers* - Kirsten
Good luck! - Ruth Kneale
Filed the answer at the courthouse, met with a clerk at a community law center. My income is higher than their scale for free assistance, but because the court granted me a fee waiver, they're gonna help anyway. Whew. Meeting with the attorney Monday. Best piece of advice I got today: "Now you can go home, rest up, and not think about this until Monday morning". Yes ma'am! - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
That is definitely some great advice. - Corinne L
From Sunday. Corinne, Vicster, and Mariella with the adorable photobomb.
That was an awesome weekend. Did you ever hear back from the person who got your text instead of me? :-D - Corinne L
No, I texted "sorry wrong number" so hopefully nobody got in trouble :) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I've been in love with Prince since like 1979. Back then he was rocking that fluffy blowout natural. Just adorable. These days, in middle age, I'm loving his afro, and I think he looks better than ever. Love seeing the pix from last nite. He's still so pretty!
You and my friend Robin could talk forever about Prince! =) - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
3 words Little Red Corvette - WarLord
God, my sister listened to his albums over and over and over and over and over and over again. - Todd Hoff
As did I. Memorized every note of every song. Posters and drawings of him were all over my room. I had a Levi's jacket I stuck about a dozen Prince pins on, every time the record store got a new pin in stock I snatched it up. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
What's not to love? My go to when I need cheering up. - Laura Norvig
"Will you accept my tears to pay the fare?" - MoTO Boychick Devil
Wish there was a way to spoil TV shows for people in other time zones, but we'll never catch up to them!!!
In the mood for revenge. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
RT @Hail_Mary_Jane: "The best outdoor cannabis far exceeds the best indoor." - Rick Pfrommer #hightimes #freeweed #cannabiscup
Talenti was on sale so I finally tried it. Yummy, but the packaging is disconcerting. Every time I open the freezer my brain is all, "why is a jar of hair grease in here!"
But I must say, a screw top is the best thing ever for me because I only eat ice cream a couple spoonfuls at a time and it's nice to have a lid that doesn't get warped n loose. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I keep wanting to save the containers. They're so attractive and I think "Well, I know it's freezer-safe." - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
I'm thinking about repurposing it, the jar could be used for just about anything. Except I'm currently in "NO NEW THINGS, EVERYTHING OUT" mode, so it'll prolly go in the recycling bin when I'm done. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
m9m,I think they're super attractive too! :) I didn't know Talenti made bars as well, so when I saw them in the store, I was way too excited. Tried these And of course, they're absolutely delicious, but at $7 a box for THREE, it will definitely be a special occasion dessert. - AHnix (Anna Haro)
Lord I didn't need to know those existed! - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
^So. damn. good. - AHnix (Anna Haro)
Love Talenti gelato! I have saved a few containers, as they are the perfect size for taking a generous portion of homemade salsa to a friend. No need to ask for the container back! - Corinne L
You had me at "hair grease" - MoTO Boychick Devil
It looks exactly like those old school jars of bergamot, etc, grease. Or the curl activator gel I used to use in Jayden's hair. I thought posting about it here would stop that nanosecond of WTF when I open the freezer. Nope. Brain still doing it. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
lol Jim Cantore.
Jayden can talk for quite a long time about the art and design of Batman Beyond. I don't mind because unlike topics such as Pokemon or Dragonball, I understand what he's saying.
Batman Beyond is a favorite of mine! Good choice!! - Harold Cabezas from Android
:-) We both love that era of DC animation. The Batman and Robin series is another of my favorites, such a lush look to it. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Very cool...! How about 'The Batman'? It was an animated series that came out after Batman Beyond? That series got my daughter into animation, comics, etc. Sentimental favorite! :-) - Harold Cabezas
Yep, The Batman is lotsa fun! - Starmama
Nice!! - Harold Cabezas
They're not allowed on my bed. Do they look guilty? I don't think they're feeling any guilt at all.
x__x. <3 - AHnix (Anna Haro)
I'm only just now starting Empire because I ain't had time. My god this shit is brilliant.
Right? I go into everything with super low expectations because...experience. So, needless to say, I was mucho pleased. - AHnix (Anna Haro)
I had high expectations, because everything Taraji do is gold, and Terence Howard is exactly the only guy who could have played Lucius. What really surprised me is how fantastic everything and everybody else in the show is. - Starmama
Love this show! Get all caught up so we can dish about it tomorrow! - Corinne L
It's one of my never-miss shows! - vicster.
I haven't seen it yet. I'll be on Hulu tomorrow. - Eric - Final Countdown from iPhone
So far this morning I have done NOTHING for Jayden outside of reminders/prompts. He actually got up on his own with the alarm, and I told him he had to get his own clothes together and figure out breakfast on his own. He thinks I'm being cruel but I say he's a lazyass whiner who will soon be an independent winner.
(actually said that phrase to him, thought I was clever but he was too pissed to appreciate it). - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Haha he's all ready with like 20 mins downtime before his ride gets here. I said, don't you feel accomplished, confident, doing everything yourself? He was all, "I guess." He's 17, that's a good enough answer for me :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Started the day feeling wiped out. Going to the wash house drained me. But thanks to my new shoes, exactly 0% of my discomfort has to do with my feet or, even better, my varicose veins.
and speaking of my poor veins...the regular use of naproxen for my shoulder seems to be helping them, it's the only change I can think of. the knotty ropey ones that hurt are nowhere to be seen these last several weeks. not much swelling in my legs period. it's a very real relief. - Starmama
The consensus among most of my friends is, they love their kids more than I love my kid, because they would have already taken the dogs to a shelter and gotten an apt. I'm stupid for choosing dogs over my son.
Thing is, nobody understands the disappointment I have as a mother. Jayden is going nowhere fast and I don't know if there's ever going to be something I can take pride in that isn't a milestone he should've hit by 11. I get far more joy, comfort, and companionship from the dogs than I do from my kid. So if I do throw my dogs away? I'd be getting rid of the only good part of my life. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I have the hardest time with people who don't understand what sort of companionship animals can provide, especially when you're going through rough times. I'm cool with people who don't feel that themselves, because to each their own, but you'd think they could stretch at least a little empathy. - Jennifer Dittrich
I wish your friends wouldn't criticize you when you really need support right now. Pets are part of your family and become like children. I see it as you choosing to keep your family together, not choosing the dogs over Jayden. You've been dealt a lot of unfair shit in this life and if those dogs bring you joy, comfort and companionship, then you fight to keep them. You deserve all the happiness you can get. I pray a solution presents itself soon. *hugs* - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Some of those friends have slept in my home with their children when they had nowhere to stay. Many of them would leave their kids with me, years before I became a mother, so they could go party at the club, because I was the only one with a job & I often stayed home on weekend nights when I had to work the next day. They're people who ought to know where my priorities are & it really hurts that they're discussing me being irresponsible and stupid. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Imma keep this real simple: fuck them. You do what you need to do. If they are too selfish to see past their situations and have some understanding of yours, then they can go fuck themselves. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
^^^ This. - bentley
ouch. gotdambit when people disappoint you at the worst possible time. but yeah, what MC said. *hugs with one arm; flips bird to the world with the other* - t-ra needs this place
What MC said. Also, **hugs** - Kirsten
What everyone else said, and... Exactly how are THEY helping? - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
MC said what I was thinking. *hugs* - vicster.
Sly and the Family Stone Day in Oakland, CA
Skechers Outlet BOGO. Bought Jayden a pair of name brand shoes for the first time in 12 years. They're fly & he loves them. And I got a pair of the Go Walk shoes for myself. Together both pairs came to less than the price I paid for my plain Go Walks from Nordstrom Rack. ++++
One of my all time favorite things to watch. I think I'll share it every time I watch a Wes Anderson film The Symmetry of Wes Anderson:
Today is the day the new owner told me that he wants to move into our unit. He never gave me anything in writing like I've asked him several times. I don't even know the man's last name. He came by the other day talking about his family is moving out of their apartment and they need us gone.
I don't know if it's the language barrier or if he's on some macho shit, but when I try to talk to him he ends up walking away saying "I can't talk to you" motherfucker you not even trying. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Also, your family has nowhere to stay? You're buying property and I'm supposed to feel bad for y'all? I will leave when I find a place or the sheriff comes. And the sheriff ain't coming until after shit goes to court. So he would want to get on that paperwork because a verbal agreement - one I asked for in writing but never got - ain't moving me. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
That dude sounds like a true prick. I hate dudes like that. - Anika
there is a particular type of Latino male who seems to hate women speaking with them as equals. He is one of those. He makes a statement and if I have any response other than "okay" he talks down to me, raises his voice, walks away instead of responding. I absolutely HATE that shit. - Starmama
That creep was really hoping you'd go quietly and that it wouldn't cost him anything. So he's a prick and he's stupid. - vicster.
YEP. - Starmama
Oh man, I deal with men like that all the time. Takes every bit of discipline I have to not call them Mr. Flintstone. - vicster.
Doesn't matter, he don't strike me as able to catch subtle barbs like that anyway :D - Starmama
At least in this case his attitude is working in your favor. =) - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
Good for you - wait for paperwork make him file and go through legal hoops. There may well be a good reason why he is not in love with the legal filing method. Sorry you have to deal with this Be well - WarLord
I know where I live, you do not even have to acknowledge that he asked you to move until he sends you that notification in writing, by certified mail. If he has not sent it, he has not notified you, and there is no way in hell that he can ever prove to a court that he has notified you or when. And when he does send it, don't know about where you are, but where I live, if he intends to... more... - April Russo (FForever!)
If he takes me to court I will get at minimum 90 days because I'm disabled. As far as details about what's in the laws, I'll find all that out once I have paperwork in my hands, and can go to Just Cause or the Law Center for assistance. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
this mfer is on my list now. wtf, hell no, let me tell you where you can put that machismo nonsense, come mierda - t-ra needs this place
jajaja - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Sometimes I turn on the Super Bowl to try to catch some ads, although I haven't cared as much about them in recent years. Sometimes I turn it on near the end just to see who wins. That's how I caught Richard Sherman's comments last year. The lack of basketball on TV on Super Bowl Sunday means it's mostly the Puppy Bowl that gets watched over here.
I suppose I could watch Lakers/Knicks while I do some packing... - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I'm not a football fan, so unless I get invited to a party, I don't make an effort to watch. - Corinne L
Ha people stopped inviting me to Super Bowl or boxing match parties years ago. I'm good. Call me when you host an NBA All-Star or finals party :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
^this, but with baseball games. :-) - Corinne L
I found a strain of weed that is cultivated for CBD (cannabinoids) over THC. It doesn't get me high but it helps with the pain, most especially the nerve pain in my abdomen area and also seems to ease the shoulder pain.
This strain is less than half the $$ of regular weed and by my clumsy calculations, looks like a month's worth would cost just a bit more than a big bottle of name brand Tylenol or Motrin, which are harsh on my renal system. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Sounds like a viable alternative. You going for it? - MoTO Boychick Devil
I got a pre-rolled joint to try it. past few days, have smoked a bit early each day before activity. I've noticed some relief, so on payday I plan to buy some more. I'm also going to look into oral preparations of this & similar strains; usually oral/edibles have too much of a high for daytime use, but this stuff might be perfect for that. - Starmama
There's a girl, Alexis Bortell, here in Texas who's taking that for her epileptic seizures. - Greg GuitarBuster
Good deal, Mandy. Hope it works. - MoTO Boychick Devil
In my Crohn's group on FB, one of us steeps hers in her tea rather than smokes. - WarLord
I found CBD chocolate bars and a no-added-sugar CBD carrot cake. I might try the chocolate. And the place that has it is just around a few corners from here. All this time I been driving past the place didn't know it was there. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
