Shannon - GlassMistress
Just committed $750 for a plane ticke and car rental to go visit my mom. Money that would be better spent toward debt. She is already giving me guff over how few days I'm staying (4 + 2 travel days) and that I'm staying over a weekend (tourist days=traffic) and that other family members will want to see me which cuts into her time. Sigh.
So sorry, Shannon. I'm familiar with that song and dance. Try to enjoy what you can. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
So sorry you are dealing with the forever maternal induced guilt. My mother is all but 90, she still manipulates. - Janet
She complained that she had to look at a lot of beads last visit (because others wanted to see them she had to see them more than once). I won't take a single one this time and I pretty much promise I'll hear about that too. It's rather exhausting :-( - Shannon - GlassMistress
things got a lot easier for me when I just stopped trying to please her b/c it simply isn't possible to do so. now I put my preferences first, then consider hers (IF she's even expressed them). she's bound to point out something terrible I've done no matter what, so I might as well not be further put out just to be reprimanded or insulted. So over it. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
No stranger would ever treat you as crappy as family seems comfortable doing Of course only family knows how to push your buttons like family does :( Take some comfort in knowing many of us share the pain Be well #familyputtingthfunindysfunction - WarLord

In his book The Rise of the Warrior Cop, journalist Radley Balko notes that since the 1960s, “law-enforcement agencies across the U.S., at every level of government, have been blurring the line between police officer and soldier. Driven by martial rhetoric and the availability of military-style equipment—from bayonets and M–16 rifles to armored... -

War Comes Home: The Excessive Militarization of American Policing | American Civil Liberties Union
"All across the country, heavily armed SWAT teams are raiding people’s homes in the middle of the night, often just to search for drugs. It should enrage us that people have needlessly died during these raids, that pets have been shot, and that homes have been ravaged. Our neighborhoods are not warzones, and police officers should not be treating us like wartime enemies. Any yet, every year, billions of dollars’ worth of military equipment flows from the federal government to state and local police departments. Departments use these wartime weapons in everyday policing, especially to fight the wasteful and failed drug war, which has unfairly targeted people of color. As our new report makes clear, it’s time for American police to remember that they are supposed to protect and serve our communities, not wage war on the people who live in them." - Steven Perez from Bookmarklet
"It is widely known that policing tactics across the country often unfairly target communities of color. According to our investigation, the use of paramilitary weapons and tactics appears to be no different. These maps show the distribution of SWAT raids by racial composition of neighborhoods in two cities, but this trend is echoed nationwide. Read the complete report for more." - Steven Perez

This morning I attended a funeral mass for a long time friend, the man who introduced me to my War Lady 35 years ago. His health issues finally became insurmountable. After the funeral I decided: I want to hire a photographer for my own funeral. There were many images at Pat's funeral beautiful little life affirming moments.
I wish I could have photographed. Plus as an end note to my online life, my funeral posted to my Flickr account old be a "perfect" The End #notrealyasmacabreasitsounds - WarLord
That actually sounds pretty cool, especially as a celebration of all of the lives touched. - Jennifer Dittrich

Today has turned into Operation Mouse Hunt. :(
Yikes! :-/ - vicster: full-bodied
do you need to borrow the cats? - Sir Shuping is just sir
Oh ewww. I have had to hunt the last two mice in this house. With five cats, it is an abomination. My barn kitten adopted finally DID get the garage mouse. - Janet
We're taking a break from cleaning for a bit, but I made the mistake of opening one last drawer before I sat down. It had K-cups and Splenda packets in it... yeah. He apparently had a field day in there. :( - L to tha B from Android
That's a good thing. With all the added body mass he won't be able to run as fast. :) - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
But he's caffeinated! - L to tha B from Android
He didn't bother the cups of Sleepytime Tea, but he enjoyed the cocoa and cappuccino. However, everything that was in that drawer has been tossed. - L to tha B from Android
I bagged one last weekend in the garage with a pre-flavored old-fashioned 50c mousetrap. Snap, wriggle pop, mouse crispy! - Zefster from iPod
Might have to try the pre-flavored ones. They aren't going for the bait yet. - L to tha B
He's licked the peanut butter off one of them. :( - L to tha B from Android

Absurd premises in movies that I've been able to accept without question:
Giant robots that transform into vehicles or household appliances. - Victor Ganata
The powers of Norse deities are really just superadvanced technology. - Victor Ganata
The only real way to combat 300 foot monsters is with 300 foot anthropomorphic robots. - Victor Ganata
The only surviving remnants of humanity live on a 1,000-car train powered by a perpetual motion engine that must continue running forever, otherwise everyone freezes to death. - Victor Ganata
Killing a specific subtype of alien species gives you the power to rewind time over and over again and this power gets rescinded if you have a blood transfusion. - Victor Ganata
that you can run along on top of a train and stand like its not moving at all and never lose your hat. - Just VAL #TEAMMARINA
A radiologist would be selected to carry out a complicated EVA involving the installation of experimental equipment. - Victor Ganata
A nuclear war is survivable by any quantity of humans. No, wait, I didn't believe that even at the time. - Big Joe Silence
That a boy can meet a girl and they can fall in love, then overcome an obstacle that drives them apart, and subsequently they live happily ever after. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
That somebody as short as Tom Cruise would be allowed to fly a jet airplane for the Navy. - Brian Johns
Brian: there are actually limits on how tall you can be to fly most military jets. The cockpits are quite cramped, so larger stature people (ahem, Rick Rossovich) are not welcome. - Bren
That a guy being held by terrorists could build a big iron suit that could fly and that whole nuke for a heart...Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts? Not so much - WarLord
Midi-chlorians. ;P - Anika
I don't remember for sure, but I'd like to hope I greeted midichlorians with a WTF expression right in the theater. I know I did for the Matrix's "they're using humans as power" line. - Andrew C (✔)

Confession: Sometimes when I'm scrolling through photos of my glass work I come across things I cant believe that I made.
Interesting comment. I find the same kinda thing when I scroll through my pictures: "When did I take THAT?" - WarLord

To be 100% honest, every photo of your glass makes me say "HOW THE %¥#£? DOES SHE DO THAT??!?!" - Johnny from iPhone
Lol! I resemble these last 2 comments! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
I visited the gym at Courage Center St Croix and did a soft round of exercise and weight machines including Nu-Step. I even played a bit with ankle weights and smallish dumbbells. I'm convinced that exercise has and will extend my time upright by strengthening complementary muscles that surround my compromised muscles. ‪#‎YMMV‬ Even if that is...

The right’s anti-healthcare jubilee! Why they can’t quit the Obamacare obsession via @Salon #hatefulrightwing
"...At least four Supreme Court justices are part-time or full-time inhabitants of the alternate conservative reality, and they have demonstrated a hostility toward Obamacare and a willingness to bend their own legal reasoning in the service of tearing the law down. It’s still unlikely that Halbig would be upheld by the Supreme Court, but if the conservatives on the court were to pull it off, the decision would throw millions of Americans’ personal lives into disorder and create chaos in 36 states. And the right would be okay with that, so long as Obamacare gets hurt. ..." - WarLord
The right’s anti-healthcare jubilee! Why they can’t quit the Obamacare obsession via @Salon
"...The unseemly side to all this celebrating is the fact that these conservatives are, in effect, throwing a party over a judicial ruling that would strip millions of people of their health coverage. “The next time Republicans are wondering why so many people think their party is cruel and uncaring and will gladly crush the lives of ordinary people if it means gaining some momentary partisan advantage, they might think back to this case,” wrote Paul Waldman in the American Prospect. ..." - WarLord
My Bohemian Great Grandfather arrived in America to escape religious persecution before there was an Ellis Island He traveled to St Louis sponsored by their Bohemian Society thence to Manley, Iowa. My grandfather was a year and a half old when they left Bremer Harbor and yet born on the train trip between New York City and St Louis #anchorbaby

Right-wing obstruction could have been fought: An ineffective and gutless presidency’s legacy is failure via @Salon
"... In point of fact, there were plenty of things Obama’s Democrats could have done that might have put the right out of business once and for all—for example, by responding more aggressively to the Great Recession or by pounding relentlessly on the theme of middle-class economic distress. Acknowledging this possibility, however, has always been difficult for consensus-minded Democrats, and I suspect that in the official recounting of the Obama era, this troublesome possibility will disappear entirely ..." - WarLord
"... My own preference would be to let that disillusionment run, to let it guide the entire design of the Obama museum. Disillusionment is, after all, a far more representative emotion of our times than Beltway satisfaction over the stability of some imaginary “center.” So why not memorialize it? My suggestion to the designers of the complex: That the Obama Presidential Library be designed as a kind of cenotaph, a mausoleum of hope ..." - WarLord

You never saw President Obama at a rally for job dignity at MacDonald's or Walmart Never speaking for $15 dollars an hour wages for the disposable class of workers. You saw him meet and greet Waltons and the great Satan of worker exploitation Jeff Bezos but never a word for the McDonald and Walmart unionizing campaigns. He wasn't a progressive or a liberal, he was a product of Harvard and writing a book to pay his student loans..... - WarLord
I fell at the hospital coming out of the infusion center after my Mg IV. Classic "no warning" IBM drop - One minute I'm next I'm down! Luckily I was on carpet, nothing damaged but my dignity.
