I am a woman who is married to a man who can appreciate that women, by far, have the more appealing bodies. Because I needed some lightness & fun in my day, I decided to highlight some of my girl crushes because they are quite admirable. Keep in mind that they are in no particular order.

The beautiful Cameron Diaz. I’ve enjoyed her in every role I’ve seen her in (that I can think of right now) but I think she’s funny, personable in interviews, plus I always feel that she’d be pretty down to Earth in real life.


Emilia Clarke but in reality it’s her character Daenarys that I love. The fierceness and unwillingness to let ‘being a woman’ stand in her way is what makes me ‘girl swoon’ ;-p


Miss Emma Stone, very much the same reasons as Cameron Diaz in all honesty


Smoldering Eva Green. I love everything about her, I wish she was in more but she’s very choosy about what she does. I respect that,but I do love to listen to her talk and her gaze is powerfully intense.


Kat Dennings…I continue to watch 2 Broke Girls for her, pretty much just her. She’s more than just a walking, talking pair of boobs her deadpan delivery is spot-on, I like that.


Kate Hudson. I think she’d make a great best friend for some reason. Also for unknown reasons I always think of her as her How to Lose a Guy character, a girl’s girl but also a girl who can throw down with the boys.


Kyomi McCloskey – Lead singer of Hunter Valentine, also appeared in the last season of The Real L Word, where she was kind of a douchebitch, but yet I still couldn’t take my eyes off her when she was around. So douchey but still sweet at the right times, and gorgeous!


Mila Kunis. I love her big eyes, and the humour that seems to come so easily. I’ve read an interview with her about playing World of Warcraft when she was dating Macaulay Culkin and she was so personable.


Nathalie Dormer. I have a bit of an obsession with Anne Boleyn for some reason and she was my first introduction to her as more than a beheaded old queen. Now she’s playing Margaery Tyrell in Game of Thrones and I am always excited for an episode she appears in. I love the little upward curl of her lip she usually has going on, and give me an accent any day.


Pink!!! She is totally badass, fierce and unflinching.

Today I’m giving you a blast from the past. Angelina Jolie is amazingly beautiful, courageous and generous. Her lips are exquisite but she carries herself with an enormous amount of grace that is hard not to admire. So, my introduction to her was in Foxfire where she was young, and covering up her womanly attributes but exudes beauty regardless.

If you’ve ever had the feeling of complete emptiness & weren’t sure how to fix it, I’m there & I’m sorry you’ve ever felt this way. It feels so wrong to be so down when, in reality, I have it nowhere near as bad as others. But I can’t seem to shake it regardless. For every day I work I see 2 homeless men, one is quite obvious, he smells like a portapotty and could seriously use some meds & new clothes. He believes I am Russian & his mother gave birth to Patsy Cline in the Soviet Union in the 1930’s, also I was also apparently married to some man he hated in the 60’s. He believes that one of my co-workers murdered someone in the 60’s and frequently succumbs to cursing fits in our coffee section corner. I do not allow myself to fall into the same manner of thinking as some of my co-workers that he somehow brought this life on himself & I often buy his coffee for two reasons: 1. I’m sorry but I do not want to touch his money, and while many people may find that incredibly rude (and it probably is) I have a bit of a germy issue and already wash my hands a ridiculous amount of times, I do not think I could handle that. and 2. If I can’t spend two bucks to give somebody a hot drink who could truly use it I seriously need to re-evaluate my priorities. And on to the second man, he is much less obvious about his current living arrangements and to my eyes appears quite sane, and fairly clean, though well worn.

(After that spiel, I forgot why I went on and on & had to go back to the beginning of my post to find out)

The whole point is that despite knowing and seeing this with my own eyes it still pains me to smile and I can feel the emptiness inside my chest, like it should ache but it doesn’t, it’s just nothing. Then I feel guilty about feeling this way and I am pushed further into despair. What right do I have in my apartment with my husband and pets, technology and a full fridge to feel this way? But it won’t go away despite what I know, despite the guilt weighing me down.

Here is where my life stands today:

I head back to classes next week, I lack the funds to pay for my books or the rest of my school supplies.I fear that the way I feel is going to take a toll on my grades, last year it did & I was not as deeply affected as I currently am. I fear that my brain will not keep up with what it needs to and I will fail, I do not deal well with failure.

My dog is having health issues and I lack the funds to bring him to the vet so I’ve been treating him myself with some polysporin, peroxide and goldbond. I feel like a failure once again & I’ve already said that I do not deal well with failure.

There was a time when I had a full time job that I didn’t love but I worked with and I was damn good at it. I had money in the bank and plans, adult plans. Things changed, the company I was working for changed hands and my goals changed, drastically. I wonder all too often if I have made the right decisions, especially when I am going through these trying times.

I spend entirely too much time in tears. Tears of frustration, of anger and since I am being honest, self loathing a good part of the time. I truly do not like myself, and it’s not merely an appearance thing. Yes I hate the way I look, and I feel as though there is nothing I can do about it. I’m fat and yet losing weight does not come easily & I find myself green with envy over my friends’ accomplishments and lacking any real motivation to begin my own.

I can’t find any happiness in the upcoming births of my newest nieces and nephews, and although I try to fake it I can sense that there is something off and not quite right with it that I am sure is being noticed. Am I jealous? Yes I am, of course I am. How can it be so easy for others to bring life into this world when my body struggles to even have a proper cycle. A little while ago somebody made a comment to my friend Amy about their family being perfect now that they had a boy, a girl and the two parents. Having a single (gorgeous) child that they are perfectly happy with and no plans to have any more, this irked her. All I could think at this time was how pathetic & pitiful my life would seem to the person with the perfect family.

On top of everything else, my husband & I are having some issues. I do not want to go into them here because it would be unfair to him to do so. In one clear moment today I suggested that we see a couples therapist but the look on his face at that revelation shut that down immediately. He was more than a little uncomfortable with that idea & I get it, I only every once in awhile feel brave enough to admit my problems to somebody else. There is a reason I did not post this to Facebook, but still made it public; a ploy to try and make myself accountable. Having to resort to a therapist, a shrink, a psychologist is something that I can understand…. for other people. For myself it is a weakness, and in addition to not taking failure well I certainly do not deal with weakness well. But I am losing patience more often than not these days, I snap at my husband often and have contemplated leaving him for his own good. Ultimately I am too selfish to do so, but he would be better off with someone more deserving, someone nicer, sexier and someone who has all their shit together. He is not going to be pleased with this, but again I have to reiterate that I am trying to make myself more accountable and I don’t think he understands just how low I get. He is oblivious to what is right in front of him and doesn’t see that there are problems that need to be addressed.

And that is an update on the state of my being. I am a poor excuse of a human being right now, and I do things that I probably shouldn’t when I am down here. Again not something I want to put out into cyberspace, but that’s the way it seems to go for me. Before I even realize what I’ve done, I’m on my second round….

Being out of school & having only a part time job has all of a sudden new chances to try new television shows. So I had Eric download me the American version of Being Human & decided to try Girls & Femmes Fatales on OnDemand. I’d heard a lot of Being Human from some friends on Facebook & they seemed to really enjoy it. Girls & Fmmes Fatales had interesting blurbs and either just started or had season 1 available so I decided on those to try one night while I was bored. Below are my thoughts.


Being Human


So there’s Aidan the vampire, Josh the werewolf & Sally the ghost. They all live together in one house & try to make a go of it with their resp0ective struggles. Josh is an orderly at a hospital & Aidan is a nurse at the same hospital. Yeah, a vamp working at a hospital, sound familiar? It’s really not. Anyway…. I truly expected to love this show from the get-go, I remember seeing a preview of it & I just couldn’t wait to try it. Well I’ve tried it & I just can’t force myself to go back and finish the season. I find Aidan (hot as all hell ;-p) just the cliché struggling to stay good vamp but failing at times. I liked that there are vampires in every facet of the city to ‘clean up’ any mistakes that any of them make. I did like seeing Mark Pellegrino back on screen though, there’s just something I love about him & hey being head vamp dude is not so shabby. Josh is THE most annoying werewolf in the world I’m sure. I cannot stand his whining or his whiny faces. And Sally, well there just wasn’t much to her at first & I don’t think I’ve made it far enough to say how I really feel about her. I’ve checked the spoilers though & if you’re anything like me, you are right as rain about her death circumstances.

Overall, it has some moments but not enough to draw me in. I think I’ll try the British version since it’s on NetFlix. The acting’s not bad but I don’t feel much chemistry among the characters, but again it could be that I just haven’t made it very far in. For me, B-

Femmes Fatales

It was an interesting concept to me. Women (always gorgeous, of course) coming out on top through methods not exactly innocent. Boy was I wrong. This is apparently based on a Men’s magazine which explains a lot I didn’t know in the first 3 episodes. One reviewer on IMDB said he didn’t feel as though nudity was seen just for the sake of seeing it, I disagree. I saw so many lady bits I was confused about what I was watching. The show is a cheesefest, over the top acting that I‘m sure hope is a part of the act. The show apparently does pretty well but I’m not sure who’s watching it, okay scratch that it’s men duh. The few plots that I’ve seen have had potential, a young movie starlet being thrown in jail with a jealous head guard & she has to survive however she can, even after catching the token jail baddie & a nurse who is taken hostage by a gangbanger brought in from a gun fight. But everything went so wrong.

Overall, too cheesy/skinemaxy for me. C-




I’ll be honest I’m not yet sure how I feel about this show. Actually that’s not totally true. I feel the same way I felt about Nurse Jackie when I started watching that. I felt an inexplicable draw to it. I needed to know what was going to happen but I wasn’t sure why. The creator’s (Lena Dunham) character is by far the most irritating character on television right now. She reminds me of Michael Cera, the voice, the mannerisms & the incessant talking fast to make a point. I was a girl that age once & my sister is that age now. This is not the strange shit that happens when you are 19-20. Certainly not Jessa’s life!! Although I have to admit she is my fave character because 1. I LOVE her accent & 2. She’s not afraid to be vocal about wanting & getting sex & 3. She’s not bloody afraid of anything. She’s fucking wild & crazy and I envy that mentality. The ‘I can do whatever the fuck I want’ mentality. Shoshanna is by far underused in this show, the last episode she accidentally smoked crack & I cracked up. Normally this wouldn’t be so funny, but she already talks a mile a minute & then she sped up WHILE running away from the guy Jessa told to watch over her. And then there’s Marnie. She is the quintessential girl in the group defined by her relationship with her boyfriend. She is absolutely gorgeous but bitchy as all hell & annoying because everything revolves around her relationship with Charlie or lack thereof. Back quick to Hannah since I got off track up there. She is in a very strange relationship with a guy named Adam who is ALWAYS inappropriate & quite honestly a jackass to her. She is floating from job to job after being cut off financially from her parents which she whined about like a little bitch. Seriously?!?! Time to grow the fuck up!! Honestly she annoys me like crazy, yeah I know I’ve already said that but I don’t think I can say it enough.

Anyhoo, because I can’t help but be drawn back in but also because I don’t know why I’m going to hover between an A- & a B+. But I think it’s worth a try for anyone really.

I have just finally gotten around to watching the first part of Breaking Dawn & what a piece of shit it is. I will admit it I really enjoy the book series. It’s fluffy, silly & light reading with enough sentimental shit to tug on my heartstrings but overall I have not been impressed with any of the movies. I found them to be getting steadily better from the first installment but this last one takes the rotten cake to another level.

How many damned slow motion close-ups do I need of Bella’s pouty face. I maintain that this book (regardless of how massive it looks) had no business being made into a 2-part movie. There is not nearly enough to keep it full of interesting visuals & this movie made it blatantly clear by spending forever and a day on a wedding that, let’s be totally honest here, Bella looked miserable walking down the aisle to.

And what on Earth was going on with those wolfy voices?!?! Were they trying to yell at each other from inside a cave or something? Makes no bloody sense why they would talk like that at all. What a fucking joke almost all of the wolf scenes were actually. That lame fight at the end? Give it up, men don’t watch these movies so they can say they watched the best (re: LAME) action sequence EVER, if they watch it at all it’s to make sure they are getting laid, hopefully with extra goodies thrown in there for them. SO stop trying to appeal to men, they don’t give a rat’s ass.

I will say, however, that the job they did at making Bella look emaciated was exceptionally done. She looked disgusting, so well done special effects/make-up people. If only the acting was on par with the make-up but hey we can’t get that many miracles from that department can we?

The honeymoon was filmed beautifully but again entirely too many close-ups and slow motion shit. Yes, I get it they’re finally having sex but slow ass filming of playing chess….. what the fuck!

I am pissed off even more so than I have been about any of the other movies. Thankfully this waste of my time was brought to me free by the Halifax Public Library system so that’s a plus.

For all the people out there that told me this was such an amazing movie & the best of the bunch so far……….

What the fuck were you watching???

I work part time at a gas station, & yes I realize that fueling stations are highly irksome for many people these days because of the gas prices. It sure does make having summer fun much more expensive, I get that but do you have to be such assholes when you come in to see me?!? This beginning part will entirely be about customer service fails (on both sides of the spectrum).

I work weekends, every weekend unless I specifically ask for one off & actually receive it but that’s besides the point… Point I’m trying to make is that while most people I see are enjoying their weekends I am at work pasting a smile on my face while YOU come in all miserable-like. WTF! Get a grip on yourself, you are not the center of the universe & simply because you are my customer I will not pretend you are.

Common courtesy goes a loooooong way. If someone greets you with a smile & asks how things are going, well the polite response would be, well honestly any one really. Don’t just shove your damned money at me and say $20. Or grunt at me, for the love of dog people, you are not hogs, how do sound so much like one? That goes without saying for the person on the other side of the counter too. For obvious reasons I will not name where I work but most FB people will know anyway 🙂 But there are some MAJOR idiots that work where I do, to the point that I left a very specific note pasted on the counter that it is the customers that pay our bills so start acting like it. There are few of us there that seem to know how to smile at people, it’s not that fucking hard. Or greet someone when they walk through the door or even at the very least when they get to the counter. It’s also a pet peeve of mine when cashiers ask, “Is that it?”, it sounds so damned rude to me, sometimes they even omit the IS, so “That it?”, no eye contact, no smile nothing really that says hey we appreciate your business. Does that clichéd? Yeah maybe so, but since my mom was a single mother  most of the time & raised us on a waitress’s wages, customer service meant the difference in what we ate. As a cashier it doesn’t quite work that way, but the value is still ingrained into me. I personally take pride in my own work,, I’ll be totally honest I really couldn’t care less about the company but they are damned lucky to have me & I don’t say that because I am conceited. However, I do my work and a good portion of other people’s as well because I can’t stand for people to think it was me that did such a terrible job. I also am quite good with customers even when, to be honest, I don’t much like people at all. What’s that? You want specifics. Oh you’re so on!!

This past weekend I gave a customer 15 cents change when he was supposed to get 13 cents, because I hate to count pennies. Well turns out his nickel was an American one. No biggie right, well you’d think I gave him one I had just spit on. He turns around, pushes past the customer who is at the counter now and throws it on the counter but doesn’t say anything. So I ask, “Is there something wrong?”. “I don’t want that.” he replies. “Okay?” So he looks at me for a second and then says in a snide voice, “I WANT a Canadian one!” If I had been thinking quickly enough, & wasn’t so incredulous I would have grabbed 3 cents from the penny cup and gave him those since all he entitled to was 13 cents but I was more surprised than anything. It’s a fucking nickel, not $50, get a grip on yourself asshole!

And from the other side. When you pick up the pump nozzle at out stores it gives us the most annoying noise in the world to authorize you to allow your pump to begin. Ideally we should respond quickly enough but that doesn’t always happen, especially if you have King Lazy behind the counter. Now King Lazy is a not very bright new person working at our store, if you think that’s not being very nice then you tell me how you would describe somebody who didn’t know how to use the calculator or what a decimal was used for. Yup, I am in no way kidding. What I can’t understand is how that even happens. He’s younger, somewhere around 20ish, and at that age when you go through school everything is done by calculators and computers not by your very capable brains (as it was when I went to school). So how on Earth does someone not know that ten dollars and twenty-five cents is put into the calculator as 10.25 or for people that don’t bother using calculators, not know how to convert the value in your head. Blow my mind… Anywhoooo, off topic so back I go. SO King Lazy is working ( well he’s there at work that is), and the gas pumps are going off for authorization and he’s got his ass stuck on a stepladder trying ever so hard to reach our screens by stretching. Ever see the Simpson’s NY episode where Homer tries to reach for the pizza place with one foot on his car, well yeah that’s basically the idea here. Obviously it doesn’t work out, so he sighs visibly, gets up, stretches his back first and THEN finally authorizes the pump(s). When these people come in the store he hauls himself back off the step stool and hits just one of the random pumps on the screen, tells the customer the amount only to be told that that was not the right pump. No greeting, no smile, no please or thank you. Not a fucking thing! I can’t stand cashiers like that, mostly because I hold them to my own standards which are high.

I believe in professionalism at work, even at a gas station or WalMart or wherever. There are certain things that should be done and certain things that should not. Going home with one of your customers that you just met is on the DO Not Do list in my opinion. But that line has been crossed several times by one employee where I work. A customer brushing a piece of lint of my chest has been done, I almost hauled off and punched him but somehow restrained. That was a brief stint at a bar for a second job, but I did not enjoy the dynamic of having convenience store customers who were normally on their best behaviour all of a sudden take a different turn, like the above scenario so that DID NOT last very long.  I also believe in not judging a book by its cover. I had a biker in this weekend who looked rough I’ll admit it, but that doesn’t mean I treated him any different. Apparently he gets a lot of that though because he told me it was nice to actually have someone treat him with respect and not vermin, and someone who actually smiled at him. He said people often see the leather M.C. jacket and assume he’s part of a gang. Really? People deserve respect no matter who they are unless they have done something to you personally to lose that, who the hell are we to judge anyone for what they like in the first place? I suppose when you grow up in a city with Hells Angels who were always nice when they came in the stores I worked at, you gain a different perspective.

I believe in customer service, it is a job looked down upon by so many people but without the service industry you would be shit out of luck for your goods. I created this a little while ago for some manager’s training I had to do, but it’s entirely relevant to so many other things.


It was meant as a reminder to the cashiers to smile for their customers & a little incentive to smile pretty. If The Rock in a dress doesn’t to it for you, well you are dead inside, lol.

After letting go of someone for their poor customer service, he asked us “Well do you expect me to fake it?” You’re fucking right I do!! If you come to work a miserable dick everyday I have no use for you. Everyone has those days, but you persevere through it & if you just can’t anymore then it’s high time you get out of there.

I would love to hear your own customer service nightmares below, so leave me a comment describing it, I have so many I truly think I might start a new blog about it because I’m already at 1500 words and I haven’t even started in on my second topic yet….

So on to the much anticipated Diablo 3 release. I have mostly been playing a monk & I really enjoy her but have been plagued by lag like many others but thankfully not half as bad as those in Australia or Taiwan have had it. One of my biggest peeves about this game is that it is online play only & I don’t like that aspect. If I am playing solo, I should not have to be online for that to happen, it leaves the game open to the lag issues & if you enter general chat it is FILLED with more gold spammers than WoW or people talking up their skills and everyone else’s lack thereof or trolls, lots and lots of damned trolls. Once I am in general chat I have no idea how to get out of it. I have not been pleased so far with loot drops, the rares I find are not suited for my monk so I am surviving on a lot of blues 😦 I have also tried the demon hunter who thus far I am not loving although I finally got something to hit groups with & that’s cool but it drains my resource quickly. So far the generator spell is weak and takes several hits & I don’t like that but once I’ve worked a bit more with the monk I’ll go back and play a bit more. I’ve also tried the witch doctor but I seriously can’t remember gameplay with her. I am the type of person who likes instant results, it’s why I am a terrible frost mage in WoW, it takes strafing and time, whereas I leveled with fire, bang bang you’re dead now & I love arcane because I’m quite honestly a lazy DPSer and I only have to hit a few buttons to kill things, still before they reach me. That’s the vibe I am getting from the DH, strafing and technique both of which I have no patience for. Probably why I’m a terrible PVPer as well. I still have the Wizard & the Barbarian to try yet, and am pleased to see that mana regen is soooo much quicker than it was in D2. For thos of you playing hard core, man oh man, all the power to you. I do not have the desire to do that because I would be SO pissed if I died & lost everything I had worked for. Okay I’ll be honest not if I died, WHEN I died. I know myself. But I still want to try playing with another person through battlenet, if I’m being forced to play online might as well give it a try with another person I guess. I also plan to give PVP a try, though I am sure it will have disastrous results, I am curious how it will work. Arena like I wonder? We’ll see I guess, but so far general chat has monks & demon hunters as the front liners for being epic PVPers, I don’t think even that will help me, although I can heal myself which is pretty awesome!!


Today’s Blast From The Past is Diablo 2 to go with D3. I played this before the first Diablo and it has been my fave since then, I hope that D3 will take over that spot but Blizz still has some things to fix first in my opinion. I could spend hours playing this game & often did. The necromancer & the assassin were probably my fave characters although I also enjoyed the druid and the paladin immensely. I can no longer play it on my computer because it begins blankign out terrain aspects so I can’t always see incoming mobs, not cool if youplan on staying alive.

Another hubby collaboration.

There are some characters that you just want to throttle because they are so irritating. It’s not the actor (well okay sometimes it is) but the character they are portraying . This post is dedicated to those guys/gals, you can check out Eric’s list HERE

In no particular order:

Daisy Wick – Bones

DAISY: You know, every time I get stuck on my dissertation, I think to myself, “WWBD.”
BRENNAN: I have no idea what that means.
DAISY:“What Would Brennan Do?” I mean, it really should be “WWDBD”- “What Would Dr. Brennan Do?” but that seems unnecessarily formal since I’m only thinking it silently.

Rachel Berry – Glee

“You might laugh because every time I sign my name I put a gold star after it, but it’s a metaphor, and metaphors are important. My gold stars a metaphor for me being a star.”

Meredith Grey – Grey’s Anatomy

“Okay, here it is, your choice… it’s simple, her or me, and I’m sure she is really great. But Derek, I love you, in a really, really big ‘pretend to like your taste in music, let you eat the last piece of cheesecake, hold a radio over my head outside your window’, unfortunate way that makes me hate you, love you. So pick me, choose me, love me.”

Priya Koothrapali – Big Bang Theory

It’s probably sad that I just couldn’t find a good quote from Priya. The character was carried by all the rest repeatedly. Thankfully she’s gone now.

Zoey – HIMYM

Another one I just couldn’t find anything good from. But honestly who would want to be in a relationship that you can’t agree on ANYTHING, especially the big stuff.

Tara Thornton – True Blood

“Know what you sound like? One of those country songs about dumb bitches that let their men beat on them and cheat on them, all in the name of true love.” I actually really liked Tara in season one, would have counted her in among my faves, but along came Maryann & Eggs and things went downhill from there. Sad.

Napoleon Dynamite – Napoleon Dynamite

Deb What are you drawing?
Napoleon Dynamite A liger.
Deb What’s a liger?
Napoleon Dynamite It’s pretty much my favorite animal. It’s like a lion and a tiger mixed… bred for its skills in magic.

Lila – Dexter

“Oh, pardon my tits.”

Well if they weren’t always hanging out we wouldn’t have to Lila, lol.

Liz Parker – Roswell

“Have you ever had a moment when you’re with the one person in the world you want to be with and the wind is blowing through your hair and the song that just describes your entire soul happens to come on, and then the person that you want to be with happens to love the same song and suddenly you realize you’re listening to it together? And that no matter how crazy your life has gotten there’s this one moment… this perfect moment… where you could just say that no matter what happens, nothing can take this moment away from me… And then, something does.” <Gag>

Marissa Cooper – The O.C.

“Standing my ground is not really my strong suit.”

Ruby Rhod – The Fifth Element

“Quiver, ladies, quiver”


David – Shaun of the Dead

David: Basically, I’d say your nine lives are up, Shaun
Shaun: Get fucked, four eyes! Why don’t you go out with her if you love her so much?
David: What do you mean by that?
[storms off]
David: Well, I don’t know what he meant by that.
[uncomfortable silence]

Druscilla – Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Drusilla: Ooh. I’m ringing. – Do you hear it? I’m ringing – all – over!
[Darla grabs the phone from Drusilla’s cleavage]
Drusilla: Oh, yeah. I forgot about that.

Theon Greyjoy – Game of Thrones

Couldn’t help but giggle at this.

“I am no man’s daughter. If you mislike my garb, I will change it.

Cassie Blake – The Secret Circle

“It’s like I’m living in a Harry Potter movie.”

A- Pretty Little Liars

How can a faceless person (team) be so annoying….. Because they are so faceless. Whoever A is they keep screwing around A-nonomously & it’s annoying.

Jenny Schector – The L-Word

“I’m sitting in the chair, writhing in agony. A demon, a minor demon, is pinning me there, fucking with my head. ‘Abraxas’, he says, ‘I’m Abraxas, the demon of lies and deceit’. ” <Writing. Always so dramatic & seriously just so fucked up!!

Catherine Martin – Silence of the Lambs

Maybe I’m just being cruel here, but stand up bitch and fight back. Scream, scream scream and wait for rescue I guess. Maybe steal a dog but then not plan for royally pissing off the freak that just kidnapped you.

Fran – The Nanny

Honestly I don’t remember much about this show except her strange nanny outfits & that damn voice. Screechy annoying voice, blech.

Michael Scott – The Office

I actually can’t stand this show, the strange camera set-up (which has also deterred me from Modern Family which I enjoyed otherwise). But how on Earth does this man get to be a manager, wtf!

“When I said that I was king of forwards, you’ve got to understand that I don’t come up with this stuff. I just forward it along. You wouldn’t arrest a guy who was just passing drugs from one guy to another.”

There are various reason why a character can be annoying as all hell & I know there are so many more out there. It’s nothing against the actors/actresses, although there are certainly some of those as well which you can’t stand in anything they play. For me those are Will Ferrell, Michael Cera & Steve Carrell, just not my cup of tea.
I haven’t been including a blast from the past lately so I’m going back in time to bring you…….
The Freaking California Raisins
It was mentioned on something Eric & I were watching the other day and I remember having little plastic figurines that I just loved to chew on for some reason.

F.U. The Killing F.U.

Very obviously talking about the American version here…

I am seriously getting fed up & here’s why.

Last year there were several interviews with cast members as the season was coming to an end. In these interviews they played up constantly that the viewers would not be disappointing and we would be left satisfied with the final product. And then the tune changed and said that “Who Killed Rosie Larsen” would not be revealed until season 2, but not far into the season because they had another case that would need to be solved. And again that changed to by the end of season 2, well guess what….. I am beyond frustrated at this point. I want to know who fucking killed Rosie Larsen since that was the bloody tagline for all of season 1 implying that we would eventually know whodunnit. I am tired of getting the runaround week after week, and to you people that keep saying, “Well in real life, crimes don’t get solved immediately either & I like the reality”…. Well screw you too. There is little ‘reality’ involved in this case, it is discombobulated & all over the board. The storylines have become a tangled web of I don’t give a damn anymore.

!!!Spoiler Alert Ahead!!!

Rosie is not Stan’s daughter. She also apparently hates her parents and wanted to get away from them, maybe becoming an escort herself & befriending the son of a man Stan killed years ago.

Mitch is hiding out in a hotel pretending some runaway is her murdered daughter, sleeping in the same bed (WTF) and completely shunning her responsibilities as a mother to two other kids.

Terri has her hand in something off, between being a prostitute escort & doing the father of Rosie’s boyfriend who is claimed to have been doing Rosie too, trying to be a mother to the boys, oh yeah and can’t forget waiting for Stan in bed and kissing him, yeah her sister’s still husband.

Richmond is in a wheelchair and seriously pissed off because, oh yeah, he’s been framed by his mayoral opponent.

Gwen left him to go try and be the daddy’s girl she so desperately craves but that won’t work out so she comes waltzing back to help Richmond again. Surprise surprise, he lets her back in… business only though. Uh huh, sure.

Holder, the only character I actually really like is given little this season except being given the treatment of a worthless human being. Being called ‘dirty’ by someone he truly trusted and then initially shunned by Linden for that exact reason. I always feel a little bad for him, his major shining moments are with poor moody, brooding Jack.

Linden gets accused of allowing her emotions to rule. To that I respond, “What emotions?” I’m sorry Mireille Enos, but that character is sooo one dimensional it’s ridiculous.

Bring in the family of a man Stan murdered, an Indian reservation & some bigshots …..

And this season everything gets thrown together in a big jambalaya pot and shaken not stirred. Bring in the mob and hey we’ve got a party. Wait, they’ve done that so everyone’s here, now let’s congo.

All in all, let’s get this show on the road now. You’ve spent more than enough time still working on last season’s objective, “Who Killed Rosie Larsen?” and nothing substantial is coming out of each week’s episodes. Mitch’s storyline is almost stand alone, except for the fact that she is operating on the guilt of letting down her daughter. The custody arrangement for Jack has nothing to do with the story. And quite honestly weirdness abounds.
