I am so terribly annoyed that "Little House on the Prairie" dvds aren't subtitled. At least the pilot and Season One aren't, so phoooey. Bah! Bah, I say! Cheap bastards!

It's so unbearably hot and humid. I fucking despise the dog days of summer. Is October almost here?

I recently finished watching all of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Angel". I feel oddly accomplished in a fangirly sort of way. It took several weeks to this,watching eps as I nursed Milo at all hours of the day. We own these, so in a few weeks I plan on going through the 2 series again, but this time to watch the shows with the commentaries.

Almost done watching "Sopranos" thanks to Netflix. The show went downhill some after season 3, but overall this has been some damn quality tv. I'm glad I've been able to see it all in a continuous fix and didn't have to wait freaking years between seasons.

Having a baby has really greatly reduced my patience for my family's usual bullshit and shenanigans. Not only have my priorities shifted, I am too goddamned exhausted and sleep deprived to spare the energy.

While at the mall yesterday I saw that the store that used to house Lane Bryant, and then a clothing store that seemed to aim for hookers as far as clientèle is now a store where fongoola furniture is being sold. GODDAMMIT. Lane Bryant is the best place for me to get jeans/pants, especially the cropped ones which fit my very short legs perfectly. I HATE that the nearest store to me is on 34th St. in Manhattan. PAIN IN MY ASS.

While I am happy for Kalpenn Modi and his new career move working for the Obama administration, I still call bullshit on the direction "House" went with things. Kutner was all depressed and suicidal? Seriously? SERIOUSLY!?!?! I'm sorry, but as someone who has had a history of depression, and suicidal thoughts (when I was in college, I've been clear on that front for over 13 years, thank goodness---the suicidal thoughts that is) they have got to be kidding me, well that is SOME portrayal of a depressed and suicidal character. Except not, since they just pulled this crap out of their asses. And yeah, ok, there are people good at faking "normal" but whatevs, I still call BULLSHIT BULLSHIT BULLSHIT. What are they doing to my favorite show? Or rather, what have they done? Can we please stop with the Foreteen crap, thanks?! Argh. I'd probably stop watching if I didn't still thoroughly enjoy Hugh Laurie's performance.

Rant ahead, hopefully mostly coherent, I'm running on fumes these days...

This is just plain appalling and wrong. And offensive and infuriating, speaking as a FAT Hispanic who has a 16 day old baby. I was fully aware of the fact that I needed to be careful with my weight gain during the pregnancy. My weight fluctuated towards the end of the pregnancy because of water retention, but I basically gained 15 pounds in real baby and baby related weight. My baby was 7lb 9oz and I was negative 5 pounds from pre-pregnancy weight a week after giving birth. My fat ass carried a baby and he is FINE & HEALTHY, he scored 8 & 9 on the apgar. I made sure to eat when I was hungry (and sometimes that hunger was so fierce, I felt I could cut a bitch if they got in the way of me and food) and not abusive "pregnancy privilege" and go insane "eating for 2"--I cannot for the life of me imagine what I would have been like and gone through if I was trying to shoot for no weight gain, or how that would have negatively impacted my son. My doctor, bless him, never gave me shit about my weight or weight gain and when I needed to be put on hypertensive meds halfway in the pregnancy, he didn't pontificate about how it happened cause of my weight. These assholes are full of shit, and certainly aren't giving a real shit about these mothers and their babies.

An hearty and robust FUCK YOU to all the assholes who voted against the civil rights of same-sex couples in AZ, CA, and FL. Oh, yes, and you assholes down in Arkansas who just voted against homosexuals fostering/adopting? FUCK YOU. Fucking SHAME on each and every one of you. I wish I could be more articulate than that right now, but I am too bitterly disappointed and disgusted by these fellow Americans of mine.
