FHP, and The Easiest Recognizable Social Divide

Last July on LV, Flophousepoodle posted a video called Failure Smorgasbord. Someone left her the following comment: “U need a dental job.”



At the time I cringed when I read that comment, being as I feel great affection for FHP, and I wondered how she would react when she read it. How do you react to a comment that’s intended to hurt? She gave one of the best comebacks I’ve ever read because it was full of humor and grace and humility while underscoring the meanness of the… Continue

Permission

Hi Friends!
So much is happening, 80% good!
I am in early stages of planning an experimental art exhibit about video sharing.
Will share more when I figure it out.
In the meantime,
please leave a comment here to give me permission to paint your profile pic for the show.
Thanks!

RE: FHP's Question: What are your reasons for leaving your LV Channel Up?

As I was typing my lengthy comment justifying the reasons why I kept my channel open on the now porn-infested LV, I realized that there is no justification. I'm not an artist or anything like that; however, my channel contains mostly family videos and prominently features my children.



All of the reasons people are giving for keeping their channels open are absolutely valid and I agree with many of them. But truth be told, I never really got over the group sex scene that greeted my… Continue

Need help

So customers are driving us crazy with ordering while on their cell phones. Rather than being polite and hanging up when they reach the register (or asking the person on the phone to hold while they place their order) they either ask the cashier to wait while the line reaches out the door or silently mouth their order. When we repeat it back they nod their heads yes and then get irritated when it comes out wrong. Is that our fault?



So I need to come up with phrasing for a sign to put… Continue

One day..

..after I wrote to President Obama to remind him about his promise for more funding

for stem cell research, I wake up to: http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/story?id=6714423&page=1

"FDA APPROVES STEM CELL STUDY FOR SPINAL INJURIES"



I thought I was dreaming. You see..I have a spinal cord injury, (dx'd as Transverse Myelitis, without going into great detail). I haven't had a day without pain and numbness since 1988, that's 20+ years. I still may not live to see a treatment come… Continue

Apologies Upfront

I'm going to re-upload my Quest for Purpose vids.

I know some people will have already seen them before so I apologise for throwing old stuff up on the Ark.

However, with the demise of my LV channel all my vlogs were lost forever and the QFP series is one I'd like to continue with.

So apologies upfront : )

My friend, Debra is here!

I'm so excited to welcome my friend, Debra Antoniak (also the name of her channel)!

Back in November I did a post on the evils of immigration and referenced a friend whose husband had recently been deported to Poland because INS didn't believe they were a legitimate couple. Her life has been very difficult ever since.

I hope she finds the Ark to be a bright spot, and I hope you'll hop over to her page to welcome her!

Update on Deception On His Mind by Elizabeth George

Damn this book is good! I'm currently on page 274. There just aren't enough free hours in the day to read this novel. Yes, it's still slow reading but it's much better now. I don't want to put it down. Sometimes on my break at work one of my co-workers will come and ask if I'm planning on coming back to work today. Oops.

Taxes are done!

Out of curiosity, has anyone ever wanted to put a made-up occupation on their Federal Tax Form? I was thinking of putting Commander of the Fifth Planet in Ark Galaxy but then I thought that might get me in trouble. I don't want Syd to get ticked at me. : ) Seriously, I wonder if they pay any attention to that line.



So the taxes are done. I'll be getting back $1130 from the two. Not bad for less than ten minutes of work. As soon as MrPoe gets his W-2, I'll be figuring his as well. One… Continue

Your Song

I opened the audio file you sent me thinking I knew what to expect. After all, you did send me an email before that telling me you were about to send a recording of a song you did and that you wanted my honest opinion about whether you sucked or not. You mentioned all those rejects from American Idol who maybe didn’t have someone to tell them the truth and so, that’s what you wanted- my honest opinion. Sisterly sugar-coats suspended (as if they ever really existed), I was fully prepared to be… Continue

Should I do my taxes or just go to bed?

So I got my W-2 from work tonight. I'm wondering if I should take the 10 minutes to do them or just go to bed? If I don't do them tonight I'll have to do them tomorrow. I need to get them in before the wonderful state of California starts issuing IOUs.

Hmm....

In which Omega wonders where this post is going

Yeah.....not a good week or so.



On top of the irritations of work (WHY DO STUPID PEOPLE INSIST ON MAKING LIFE DIFFICULT?!?!) and winter (START YOU GODDAMN CAR!!!!!!), tragedy befell the Omega household when my dog Lou got caught behind a UPS truck backing up. I wish I could say he never knew what hit him. Unfortunately, that was not the case as only his back end was crushed...



Took him to the vet. News was of course not good. Crushed pelvis, internal injuries, shock, etc.… Continue

Kids Get All The Cool Stuff

I just got the Pottery Barn Kids catalog in the mail. I'm not sure why I got it, because I don't have any kids, but I am feeling very jealous right now. In this months catalog they have these really cool sheets with The Cat In The Hat on them, BUT THEY ONLY COME IN TWIN SIZE! Why doesn't anyone sell sheets in king or queen size that have fun stuff on them. I for one would buy them. Target does the same thing. They sell these awesome sheets with Buzz Lightyear or Star Wars on them, but only in… Continue

Too soon?

I bookmarked 'Whitehouse.gov' in my browser yesterday. Wondering if it's too soon to start writing to our new leader with requests. In particular, a LOT more money for stem-cell research, which I believe he promised during his campaign. No time like the present..

If you're happy and you know it clap your hands...



If you haven't already seen it, I posted a discussion on the forums for jokes, funny stories and funny pictures.. please feel free to check it out and after a good chuckle, maybe you can add to it.



Today, I am happy... I didn't want to be, in fact, last night I was working on a great big pity party for myself, but today I woke up and decided that I would be happy instead.



I can't even tell you why I was feeling sorry for… Continue

The Flu and A Little Sick Beagle

On Sunday I came home from work after a couple hours with the flu. I actually began coming down with it on Saturday although I refused to admit it was the flu. I wanted to believe it was the pizza I ate. You know, too much cheese or something.



So I went to work on Sunday and after running to the bathroom five times in about two hours, I decided it was time to go home. Upon arrival, my Beagle Lucy, immediately glued herself to me. She hopped up into bed and warmed my feet. Then when I… Continue

What a day

Now I believe things happen for a reason. Even the fact that at 5:20 am on my way to work I get a flat. Making it to the local gas station, I call home. ( I do not have a cell ) My hero (hubbie,sweetheart, soul mate) shows up two hours later after work before the tow truck. Tire switched to the donut and follows me to the tire store, to purchase a new tire. The old one is trashed. Finally getting home I call work again, telling them I wont be in. As I sit in my warm livingroom, Bun doing her… Continue
