crawls out from under a rock [Feb. 16th, 2004|09:10 pm]
nepenthes59
I spent today & yesterday in bed~ and in too much pain.. I don't care so much that I lost my 50 cents in the Canadian vending machine in the ladies restroom at duty free store.. >.< That happens at work all the time too.!! & just Like Canada to charge twice as much for a feminine hygene products...

so we didn't end up doing a Dane transport - that got postponed til next week. However, Mim & I wanted to go to Windsor anyway...as well we love to go to the Italian bakery (it is wonderful! just like the Chinese section in Windsor... why aren't they like that in Detroit?? *wonders*)

It was like we entered "COPS" set - we go to Zellers and we see some kid being dragged out in handcuffs in some big police van.. YO - this is Windsor, I can't explain the world of difference between crime in Windsor vs Detroit.. so it was a surprise.

Then we go to the border to cross back home.. and *_* drug sniffing dog patrol?

Oh, but being the doggie lovers that we are.. hahaha Mim & I are just fascinated at the beautiful chocolate lab doing the patrol. Some people go all googly gahgah with babies *lol* we do it with animals.

I had an excruciatingly painful night of cramps.. damn! I hate that -
and you have to love a hubby who will go pick up tampons for you in the morning when you realize you are out....... *chuuuuuuuu* to Leigh

I never did make it in to work - but thank goodness my nausea went away.

Apologies to friends who got stuck on my smut fic filter *laugh*...

I often wonder about the tv shows I see now - sadly without much creativity or inspiration. There are too many of those annoying realty shows - >.< fear factor needs to die in a big way.. uughhhhhhhh I'm anticipating the
"I'm engaged to a serial murderer" series
Maybe you can pick your groom on death row.

I admit, I was watching some 'littlest groom' show (which title annoyed me) as most all the contestants are midgets/dwarfs. While the contestants on the show seemed rather genuine - it makes me wonder when people are 'on display' in this way. It would be great if the purpose of the show was to actually present people like this as totally normal with everday desires and needs. Perhaps it was because of my involvement with the Deaf community.. I feel a bit annoyed when people with any physical difference becomes the object of pity - or to the other extreme, put on a pedestal.


I hope I can make it to work tomorrow...

I know how you feel Helayne. I used to take care of mentally challenged/disabled children, and so many times I'd have people feel sorry for them or make fun of them, and it really annoyed me. Maybe because I see them as any other person, they just need a little more help/attention then the "average person" does. :(

Oh no!! Awful period troubles, boo to them! I'm sorry! :( I hope all those blasted cramps disappear!

I've never been to Canada, I've always wanted to visit tho!

What??? "I'm engaged to a serial murderer?" O_________O LOL, it's so morbid it's funny... maybe I'm just sick.

I agree with you about putting people who are different on display... like that show where one girl goes out with men who all have bags over their faces so she can truly pick the right man based on personality alone... she picked who she wanted and ended dumping him because he didn't look how she "thought"... that tells you right there how superficial society usually is, everything's about looks these days. I'll 'Be Destined' to be alone if that's the case! But hey, I don't care :P

Hope the cramps are all gone. I'm having them at the moment, and it sucks.

Speaking of reality shows, I don't know if there's a western version of this but I would think it'd be highly illegal in the US...there's this rs-thing in Indo in which men/women who suspect their spouses cheating on them sign up for the show and have the two 'detective' show hosts trail after/stalk their supposedly unfaithful spouses and air their day-long activities on national tv via hidden camera to see if they're secretly seeing anyone else. It's beyond sick, it should be criminal (but surprisingly still airs).

Re:

Thanks - the cramps are still here but a lot less severe..

It seems to me I've seen a show just like what you describe.. someone w/a camera catches a cheating lover on tape then confronts them

Urgh, it's so bad in middle school. >.< There is a special classroom for kids with mental/physical disabilities and some of my classmates, who are supposedly "older and more mature", treat them like freaks. >.< Even some of the teachers treat those kids that way... It makes me so angry.

I hope you feel better soon. ^^;
