Lauren Scruggs Chopping Her Own Hand Off....

In the mornings, while the kids are getting ready for school, I usually watch Good Morning America. I don't watch much news during the day so this is kind of my way of catching up on things going on in the world. I remember a few months ago hearing about a model named Lauren Scruggs who was taking a ride on a small airplane and when she got out of the plane she turned around right into the blades of the propeller and lost a hand and an eye. Of course, at first I thought it was a horrible thing to happen but I also thought how embarrassing it had to be for her to be a complete dumbass for the whole world to see. I mean, seriously, if I were that close to the blades, I'd damn sure make sure I stayed far away from them and knew exactly where they were! Made it funnier because she already looks like the typical airhead blonde model.

I hadn't heard about her for awhile until yesterday morning. They announced that she was in the middle of suing the pilot's insurance company. Then today they said that she settled out of court, and that the insurance company had originally offered her $200,000 (which she refused) but they offered her enough to get her to settle out of court and I'm sure it had to be quite a bit MORE than $200,000!

Why is this legal??? So anyone can be a complete dumbass and injure themselves because they weren't paying attention, and then GET money in return?? Who the fuck made up these dumbass laws? I mean, if I walked into propeller blades, I sure as Hell wouldn't expect to get money for it! She had already exited the plane! Why should the pilot's insurance have to pay her a dime and why the fuck does she think she DESERVES that much money???? Yeah, our judicial system is sooooo screwed up, ya think???

Do you think she deserves to get money??

Over Achieving Moms and Period Parties

Over achieving moms have been the subject of quite a few blog posts lately. What are over achieving moms? Well, these are the parents who spend thousands of dollars on their kids' first birthday party (which I always thought was stupid anyway.. the kid is 1 and has no idea wtf is going on!... save it til they are older and can enjoy it!). The ones that truly do treat their children as if they are a real Prince or Princess by spoiling them to the point of being sickening and disgusting. Some of these parents might as well wrap their little brats in bubble wrap and lock them in the basement before they realize what reality is!

I just came across a blog post about parents hosting period parties. No, I'm not talking about the little dot on the end of a sentence, I'm talking about when a girl starts bleeding out of her hoo-ha. Parents are now using the first period as a reason to throw a party and show off to their friends what "great" parents they are.

First of all, why would you want to do this to a teenage girl? I remember when I got my period. Yes, I was a little excited because it meant I was "grown up" but it was also embarrassing, painful, and downright gross (it still is!). Why the Hell would you want your mommy to run and tell the whole town that you got your period? Do these mothers have such very low self esteem that they have to try to make themselves feel better by throwing a party for every single thing that happens to their child? Hey, a tooth fell out; PARTY! Hey, he wiped his own butt: PARTY! Hey, she can write her name: PARTY!

This goes right along with my Dumb Babies post. Guess what, over achieving mamas? Every girl gets her period! Your daughter isn't that special that she made blood shoot out of her coochie. Your daughter getting her period does not make you some all-star mom. You didn't grow some super genius brain child in your womb.

What are these over achieving moms doing to their kids? Are they teaching them how to be responsible? Hmm, no. Are they teaching them what is important in life? Probably not. Are they teaching them to be conceited annoying little brats that are sooo full of themselves that they will probably get beat up on regular basis when they get older?? Hmm, yeah, I'm thinking so.

Try just being a parent. A good parent. A parent their teaches their kids right from wrong. A parent that teaches their kid to have respect for everyone else. A parent who teaches their kid to treat everyone equally. Take a look at your priorities and flip them upside down or else get your head out of your ass so that you can see them properly. Idiots.

Name Brands for Great Prices

I love to shop, especially when I can find a good bargain on name brands that I am really wanting. I really enjoy being able to shop from the comfort of my home instead of going out and dealing with people in stores. I'm really a little anti-social and much prefer to spend time with myself than with strangers!

I was looking for some football cleats cheap for my son and searched online for the best price. An online friend suggested They have all sorts of name brand items for cheaper than what you can typically find them in a retail store anywhere around here.

A friend of mine collects vases and I was looking to find bud vases cheap and I got lucky while browsing for my son's shoes, I came across some great prices on vases as well. My friend loved the gift and she proudly displays it among the rest of her vase collection.

My mother has diabetes and one thing she really struggles with is the cost of meter strips. I got her a great price on chipblood glucose test strips and she was so happy. Now she can better afford to take care of herself like she needs to.

I'm definitely going to do more shopping here. I love finding a good deal on things that I love!

Crying over Facebook Timeline

Seriously, the person who made this..............

... is a fucking idiot.

Ok, so if you are on Facebook, you can't really miss all of the bitching about the new timeline layout. Some people love it, others hate it. I personally like it. It's different and you can personalize it a little more than you could with the old layout. Come on though people, shut the fuck up! I'm sooo sick and tired of hearing people bitch and moan about how Facebook better not make them switch to the timeline or they will leave the site. Really??  Facebook is FREE. You do not pay for it.. it's all free. Free for you to upload photos to, free for you to network with, free for you to find old friends that you may have never found before, free for you to share music or videos, free for you to say what you want.. it's all FREE! Stop your fucking complaining! Some of these people whine worse than my 7 year old daughter. It's freaking annoying. Suck it up and put on your big girl (or boy) panties and fucking deal with it! No one is forcing you to stay, you are free to go. Stop being so damned dramatic over a freakin' website that is FREE!!! Facebook has come a long way from the beginning. Yeah, sometimes it's not working properly, but they usually get it figured out. No one is perfect .. and Zuckerberg isn't going to lose his millions or billions just because you decide to leave. Do you really think he's going to be crying over it?

I know most people don't like change. I don't like change either much.. but sometimes change is for the better. Yeah, maybe it's not right that they are forcing everyone to switch to the timeline, but I'm sure they have their reason as to WHY they are doing it. Don't you have anything better to bitch about, people? You are fucking annoying, now shut the fuck up!!

Bullies and School Shootings

I'm sure by now, most of you have heard about the most recent school shooting in Ohio. Ohio is my home state so it hit close this time. I know that all of these school shootings are sad and a horrible thing, but part of me understands.

I understand what it's like to be teased and taunted. I know what it's like to hear the jokes being said behind my back as if I were deaf and couldn't hear them. I know what it's like to hear people laughing knowing that they are laughing at me. School was Hell for me at times and I tried everything I could to get out of going to school because of it.

What caused this kid to snap? Most times, the shooter is the one who was bullied. The loner of the school that kept to himself with just a few close friends. The one that everyone thought was weird and made the perfect target for their jokes.

Not everyone who is bullied starts shooting randomly at school but I think if someone is already on the edge, whether it be with depression or mental stability, all of the teasings would cause anyone to explode. I admit it, I used to dream about there REALLY being a bomb inside of my school (we had a lot of bomb threats in school) and the school blew up while I watched it with all of the fucktards in it.

What do people get out of bullying? Does bullying make them feel superior and better about themselves? To degrade another person boosts their self esteem? Who gets enjoyment out of hurting someone's feelings? Who thinks it's funny to tease and call people names? Where are the parents who should have taught their children from a young age NOT to be a bully and to treat everyone equally? That was YOUR responsibilities, parents. It is your responsibility to teach your kids to treat everyone the same and to not discriminate against someone that is a little different. Do your fucking job and teach your kid how to be a good person. OH wait, you were probably an asshat in school, too. Assholes raise assholes, I guess.

Yes, these kids should be punished for killing others but I think we need to figure out what exactly pushed them to that point?

I'm glad that schools are becoming more strict when it comes to bullying. The school my kids are in has a great no bullying policy. Not all schools have adopted these rules though and too many teachers just turn the other cheek when they see bullying going on. Sometimes, teachers need to step in, too, instead of just ignoring the problem.

If you were never teased in school, you will never understand.

I love that movie, btw!
