Some Days (John)

I'm a cereal killer

My nephew K constantly wastes milk by getting a big bowl for his cereal and pouring enough milk for three more bowls in it. And then doesn't even drink the milk afterward. I admit that really pisses me off when I'm left with just using non-dairy creamer for my coffee. But it's also just a natural pet peeve of mine since I was taught from a young age to only pour enough milk so that the cereal floats in the bowl, that gives you just enough to eat with the food and drink afterward.

So kiddo always overdoes it and if I happen to see him making himself a bowl I'll pour the milk myself because he never listens. When he gets all indignant about it, I point out that if he'd simply do as he's told I would have no problem with letting him do it.

How much milk do you put in your bowl of cereal?

Just enough to make the cereal float.
More milk than cereal.
Ticky boxes love sugar flavored milk.
Tickys are for kids.

I am getting so tired of the internet connection in this area. For over a year BrightHouse has known that the main wires for the trailer park have needed replaced, they claim they've done it but I'm pretty damn sure everyone on this block would notice their trucks replacing them. If mom hasn't seen them, the kids would have since no one gets in this park without them knowing it (during the day at least).

Yesterday the connection was no better than dial-up (taking forty minutes to download a 15 mb file) and it screwed me up on some class assignments I'd uploaded, the attachments were blank when they were opened. It's not going over well since this isn't the first time this has happened this quarter. *facepalm*
Didn't Just Piss Us Off (Teal'c/Cameron)

bundles of joy

I've seen several people mention the Duggars family this afternoon. The reactions mostly range from disgust to claims that the woman must be 'addicted' to having children.

You know what disgusts me?

Those reactions to one family's happiness. How fucking sad have we become as a society that when we hear of this family and feel anger or the need to insult them.

I'm happy for the Duggars family. If they have the love in their hearts and the means to care for ALL of their children more power to them. Though I do feel sorry for the littlest ones to have been brought into a world were people despise their parents for loving one another.

Yes, I know that there are thousands of kids in need of adoption, but that does not fucking mean you have to be insulting or have the right to be angry at this family. I don't care if she announced it on national tv about the new baby, still doesn't give any of us the right to pass judgment. More than likely they were prompted by the show to announce it to get the other kids' reactions.

Having that many kids is so not my thing, but then not everyone is cut out for it. Best of luck to the whole family.
