The Merry-Go-Round of Rotating Knives

Dealing with people can be so painful. Everyone knows this, but I seem to re-learn that lesson over and over again. People I trust show themselves to be unworthy of that trust. Which leads to my disappointment (but not surprise). And my desire to stay home and hide from the outside world. Hopefully my hermitude will only be temporary.

It doesn’t help that something awful happened in our neighborhood yesterday afternoon. An eight year old girl was assaulted in the restroom of the local library. The library I regularly visit with my son. Now my mama bear mode is working overtime.

But I can’t just focus on the bad. Or my brain will asplode. Some things are not so bad. Here are five of them:

    I love that you also use “asplode!” So that’s a good thing.

    That’s horrible(!!!) about that girl who was assaulted. Mama bear mode would mean me buying all our books on amazon used instead of going to the library (even though that’s kind of ridiculous). Sometimes I hate the world.

    I’m kind of surprised you would go see Tropic Thunder, based on all the controversy flying around the internet. Down here there were people protesting outside one of the theaters.

    Oh wow. I have to admit, I was completely unaware of any of that. I just googled a bit because I’d had no idea. Skimming this now:

    “Tropic Thunder’s” production company, DreamWorks, and distributor, Paramount, said the criticisms were misguided. Stiller, who also co-wrote and directed the film, has said that the movie, a satirical look at Hollywood, is poking fun at self-important actors, not the mentally disabled.

    You absolutely MUST watch Legend of Neil, especially the third episode in which Felicia Day plays a “hard up” fairy. Totally awesome (but NSFP–not safe for parker).
