    • Eating tofu, to "test" tolerance and making myself sick.

      Perfection is entirely individual. Any philosophy or pursuit that encourages individuality has merit in that it frees people. Any that encourages shackles only has merit in that it shows you how wrong and desperate the human mind can get in its pursuit of truth.

      • My 77-year-old mom fell down in public again (she tripped), and for the 2nd time in a row, perfectly healthy adults just stared and went around her. The first time, she was in a puddle of blood (slammed her face into the sidewalk) and was ignored for about 20 minutes, but this time she was just scraped up and having trouble getting back on her feet. After being passed by healthy younger males, a middle-aged woman in a suit finally asked if she needed help

        I wouldn't be so ticked off if this particular town wasn't so freaking pious, literally "holier than thou", and not exactly promoters of gender equality.

        Yes, I'm pissed. Very pissed.

        • Oh Rita Rose, I so get that. Many years ago, I was on a BART train and when I looked up from my book, I noticed a very pregnant woman standing. When I offered her my seat, all the (well dressed but obviously shit inside) commuters looked really guilty as they shoved their faces into newspapers, whatever. I mean really? really? Sitting on a commuter train is that much of a luxury you can't give it up for a pregnant woman? really?

          ~30 years ago and I still remember it. Just one reason I love mankind but don't like very many people.

          Hugs for your mom.

          Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

          • My neighbor's appear to have gone the chicken shit petty vengeance route because I kicked their attacking dog in front of them. They left the lights on, meaning their dog could see even more leaves blowing and bark all fucking night. I took the most civil and procurable method of all the things that crossed my mind and sprayed their dog with the hose in just above freezing weather.
            In my defense, I did NOT: shoot out the light, shoot the damn dog, shoot the damn owners, start a legal battle to get them kicked out of their home, sabotage his truck or her car, or any number of other things that crossed my mind when woken from a Nyquil induced deep slumber at 3 AM.
            Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

              Thanks, JoanieL. I'm definitely not a fan of people that don't do the right thing. It's called "being a grownup" when you do.

              • High school kids that wont work their damn work shifts. Seriously... if you want to work, work. Don't call me every single week because "I've got this school thing." If you can't handle both, then suggest quitting. I worked my way through highschool and what part of college I attended, this is really irritating to me.

                  • gripe of the day: Perfectly healthy friend going vegan/vegetarian just because they watched "Vegucated


                    Also: having to explain to another friend why the "meat putrifies in your intestine fact" is just vegan propaganda.

                    • doesn't everything turn to shit in your intestine...? Sounds rather putrid to me.
                      "Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."

                      • My GOTD:
                        Too many cooks in the kitchen when it comes to my diet and weightloss. I've been working out really hard for 3 months and I've lost a lot of inches and about ten pounds but my diet wasn't under control. Now that I'm working on my diet and working out all I hear from my mother, my sister, my hairdresser: "Well don't get too excited, you still have thirty pounds to go before you can buy that romper and look good in it" or "Well get on it girl! That weight isn't going to lose itself" or "Don't go try on those size 6 jeans to see if they might fit, you're only going to disapppoint yourself"

                        Seriously? Can I just get a "great job Maureen, if you keep going like you're going, the weight will come off in no time!" or a "Yeah go try on jeans I bet that will make you feel great about how far you've come!"

                        Nope. Its like they want me to obsess about my weight and become anorexic. I look great now people. I can almost see my top abs. I have cut my side fat (the kind that pokes out when you wear a tight bra) almost down to nothing. Please just encourage me in a productive way.

                          WTF? Seriously, find different people to hang out with. Good lord, what a bunch of pricks.

                          I am sure all three of them have perfect health, perfect bodies, and perfect lives.

                          • Yeah no kidding. Thank goodness for the support from the boyfriend or I would be crying on the couch eating Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia.

                            • The hairdresser is replaceable; fire her ass. Mom and sis, not so much. But do stand up for yourself (please) and tell them that if they can't say anything positive, they can at least stfu. (You might clean that up if the f-bomb isn't commonly used in your family.)

                              Good on the boyfriend. And good on you for not relying on Ben and Jerry for comfort.

                                I've noticed that the ones who are more prone to criticizing me are the ones who are actually angry at themselves because they lack the discipline to make any changes in their lives. I always grab my copy of The Four Agreements and reread the second one ... "Don't take anything personally .... nothing other people do is because of you. It is because of themselves."

                                Stay strong, you're doing great !
