If you could confront the worst teacher you've ever had, what would you tell him or her?


Mrs. Ivans.
Im sorry that you weren't as intelligent the average fifth grader, and felt that terrifying us into submission would make up for it. I pray that at some point in your life, you learned that bullying small children into tears, was not the way to bump up your ego. I pray that you eventually forgave whomever it was that taught you that it was a good idea to throw erasers and chalk at your students.
Im sorry that my mother embarrassed you, in front of your students. But I cannot say that you didnt deserve it.

Mr.Olsen.
I understand why you became an alcoholic. It must have been hard, with your daughter getting pregnant, in grade 7, and your wife, always cheating on you. I forgive you, for telling my mother and myself, that I wouldnt live to see graduation, simply because you had no control over your own students. I feel a great deal of pity for you, and how much you must have hated Mr. Hamakawa, who had to replace you to bring order to your school, eventually.
But you see, Im still alive... and happy.
And that in itself, must just eat you up inside.

Forgive me for gloating.

that I am a bad, bad, person tonight... for presuming that Danny Elfman is condemned to hell...
I cant know the state of another mans heart - thats between him and God.
But it certainly takes a load of guilt of my mind, for condemning him there, as I attempt to sleep. Attempt to shut down my head...
but all I hear, going round and round, is...

"kidnap the Sandy Claws, throw him in a bag..."
"la da da di dee,dee, dee, blah blah blah blah blah....."

Because I can only remember one line of the wretched song, that wont stop!

So - I broke down, and watched the travesty that is Lost Boys: The Thirst.
Plot points I wrote years ago -

Vampire blood as an addictive drug.
Head vampire not who you think he is.
Head vampire *actually* a very pretty young blond boy (Yes, I think they were trying to copy TB, here - but Im counting this as an ANgst Inc rip off - Ill explain why later)

Way overused plot points -

the emotional flashback. - yes, I know that its kind of a homage to the *other* Carey - but, oh dear god - this was *bad*.
the young pretty overlord - we get it, the boss isnt always dependent on physically intimidating persona.
The sexy lure - yes, again, we know, men think with thier cocks. But *still* people... this was truely unnecesary.
tits. - there was absolutely no need to put those in this movie. The profanity was minimal, there were no sex scenes, and your leads never took *thier* shirts off - so why do you feel it necessary to show no less then at least 20 sets of tits, occasionally attached to mouths attached to each other... I have no idea.
and just for the Lost Boys fans -
The "Ive drank the blood, but still not 100% vampire, so Ill help you fight, because I dont want to be evil" thing.
*headdesk*

The whole point of this movie, is that they give them vamp blood as a drug, and of course, it gives them the thirst, which *must*be*given*into*. - Instant army of vampires. having one of your main characters resisting it?
Particularly someone as lame as the "other" Frog brother?
After we've already established that Star, Micheal, and Sam, all were turned?
stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid.

Now, - after Ive got that out of my system, let me just say this - because if you're reading this blog, then this will matter...

Prettiest, boy. *EVER*.
Ive looked him up, IMDB'd him - cant find pics *anywhere* - totally breaking my heart.
Hes fine boned and blonde as Draco, but taller and far better looking.
He has the face of an absolute fucking angel - and the mouth, holy mother of god, Id let that mouth bite me *any*day*.
Blue eyes - like, Jades blue eyes.

Through most of the movie he's restrained, being fed liquid garlic to keep him subdued (yes, this is a massive spoiler, deal with it)
But once he gets free - hes - beyond stunning.

Felix Mosse, is his real name, and if you can find *any* decent pictures of this amazing god, please - *please* let me know.
And yes, Im going to say it - hes worth watching the movie for - if , you know - what I think matters in a movie like this - actually does matter...

Annnnnd... yes - He may just seem so pretty to me, because theres *so* much terrible/ugly/ridiculous around him - but - I dont care...
soooo pretty.

seriously here folks...
first of all - its *just* a game.
Secondly - If you are that seriously offended by negative female stereo types, why the hell are you playing WoW, to begin with?
Listen, the world we live in isnt perfect, but there are places where it used to be safe, for teenage boys, to be teenage boys.
Why are we taking that away from them?

Yes, the outfits are sexy, the storylines are male centric, and theres a large lack of female role models. But you know what? I thought that was all just things you learned to accept and deal with, when you played with the boys.

You want a story that doesnt include slutty innkeepers daughters, fat women jokes, and armor that makes Princess Leia looks chaste? Then go find a mylittlepony game. World of "Warcraft" intones a certain - masculinity to it. Its War. A place where in our current culture, women arent readily accepted. This is a game developed, in this culture. The fact that we get all shocked and shaken every time Blizzard, or - Hollywood, or - whatever, decides that women are sexy and Men brooding and nasty misogynists just tells me that hypocrisy is alive and well.

Ill tell you what... when *you* decide to drop the make up, the jewelry, and wear a burka - men will quit looking at you like your sexy. We *cant* have it both fucking ways, ladies, or have you *not* figured that out by now?

Its not "an excuse" - men *are* visually* stimulated.and you *know* that - other wise you wouldnt care about the perfectcocksucking pout, the glamor nails to scratch up his back, the form fitting shirts that show off every curve you have to offer....
Now - the men do have a responsibility to respond in a *controlled* manner.... thier bodies are in thier own control, just like our choice to wear the shorts skirts are...

But when you step into a fictional world - a world that has *long* been the singular domain of frustrated 40 year old virgins living in thier parents basements.... and Im betting that only 1/50 of those are female... (I should know, I was one) Then guess what - its *thier* world

Its the same thing if you want to be a woman plumber, or carpenter.
You want to play with the boys, well guess what - they *dont* play like us.
They insult each other - and then *laugh*it*off* - and forget about it.
They say rude, terrible, nasty things - and most of the time - mean *nothing* by it.

So why the fuck - if this bothers you - do you *want* to be in thier world?
Perhaps we should petition Blizzard to make us a womans version of WoW.
The guys would be in loincloths
THe women would be in full armor.
The Quest lines would be all about how men cheated, lied and beat thier way through - and now deserved retribution.
Except around holidays, where it would all be like Valentines day - everybody falling in love and breaking hearts and kicking asses.
All the bosses could be the women who put these male puppets in power
And Jaina Proudmore and Alexstrasia would be lovers, and rule the whole damn world.

Me, Im going to stay were Thrall is sexy, Arthas is a basterd, and innkeeper's daughters jokes make me snicker.
I perfer to pick up my non-existent balls, and play with the bigboys.
And enjoy the fact that I know, that in real life, I can turn them into gibbering piles of goo.

Because I understand that men are men, and women are women, and thank *god* - we are different.

#5: How would YOU have wanted Firefly to end?

Well, I wouldn't have, now would I? But in my perfect imagination, it ends a little something like this: Nine glorious seasons later, Kaylee and Simon have had several beautiful brunette babies, a couple of which have turned out to be crazy geniuses like their Auntie River (Firefly: the Next Generation?), and one who mysteriously looks a lot like Matthew Fox, who became a regular cast member in season six. River has finally found her marbles and is now captaining her own ship with her loyal second-in-command, Jayne, who claims that River is the best captain he's ever known. Saffron is now their mercenary, and Jayne's lover. And because this is the future and vast discoveries have been made in the world of medicine, Jayne is pregnant with their first child. Inara and Mal finally profess their undying love for each other while Inara is, well, dying in his arms (something gruesome, lotsa blood), and Mal finally realizes that life is short. And promptly confesses his (other) undying love to Zoe. And she promptly punches him in the face.

Have you ever boycotted a company or product? If so, what was it, and what caused you to boycott it?
*sighs*
I avoid Nike.

As an actual bible believing Christian I cant support a company who openly advertises the Satanic First Commandment, according to Anton LeVays Satanic Verses.

I also for years, boycotted Johnny Depp. Similar reason. Unfortunately, I, like most other middle aged women, have a pulse, so thats not working so well.

I do manage, for years at a time, manage to boycott pork products, McDonalds, and all fried food. Mostly for health reasons.
Proving impossible with the twin problems of tiredness and two toddlers.

I think thats about it, unless you count the Church as a company...
Which I boycott mostly for its anti-biblical, anti-Christian practices.

Yes, I know - color me conflicted.
