Friday Fragments

Friday Fragments?

Welcome to another edition of Friday Fragments, brought to you by the lovely and charming Mrs.4444.  She posted some really great news over there today, so you should go check it out (no, she isn’t pregnant).  While you are there, check out her Friday Fragments post and join in.

***Here is a direct quote from a commenter on the newspaper article about CF’s sentencing:” Don’t you think at 15 that she could of got away from him? Why stay there and let him do things to her that she knew was wrong.”I have to thank “jazz” for her incredibly thoughtful and, of course, well-informed comment.  One might say, then, that if she or her daughter is raped, we can also conceivably blame it on her inability to prevent it from happening?  Funny, for some silly reason I thought the perpetrator was at fault, but gee, I guess I was wrong.  Fuckwad.

***Mornings at my house have pretty much sucked the last couple of days.  This morning I lost it and finally said, “Thank you all SO much for making me so thrilled to actually go to work!” 

***I just got the recertification for my child care assistance.  My co-pay went up because according to them, I make $2,239 a month.  Well fuck me running, wouldn’t THAT be nice?  I have to email them next week to find out how they came up with that amount; before taxes, I make $1600. I WISH I made over $2,000 a month before taxes! 

***On a happier note, it is not likely that Steve is going to die based on the minuscule amount of charcoal lighter fluid he swallowed last night.  Especially given the fact that it was diluted greatly in the can of soda he had just opened.  Note to Steve: if you leave a soda can out on the step, ALWAYS smell it before you swig. 

***Ms. Moon is having a grandson very soon, maybe already.  So if you love her like I do, send up happy thoughts for her daughter Lily and Son-in-Law Jason as they labor to being another Owen into the world.

***Hannah and Eli’s dad always calls the house during the day, in the middle of the week, when he knows they are not going to be home.  Twice this week he has done this, and I am baffled.  Because when the kids call him back at night, he won’t answer the phone.  I am not sure if he is trying to be all “well I call all the time and you guys aren’t home” deal, not REALLY wanting to talk to them, but who knows.  It just annoys me; why call when you know well no one is going to answer? 

***I really need a vacation.  When I burst into tears this morning because the dog got out and wouldn’t listen when I called her back in and I dropped my coffee cup while going after her, well, that is a pretty sure sign I need a break.  It isn’t happening anytime soon, though, and the entire weekend is already filled up with shit that HAS to be done.  Stuff I have put off because there was all this other more pressing shit to do.  I know this is the way of it all, just LIFE, and I am not really complaining.  Much.

***I finally got the new fishing reel Steve bought for me for out Fourth Anniversary.  It is lovely, with a beautiful gold patina and a wooden handle that feels so nice in my hands.  It has a lot more bearings in it than my old one, which means it reels in a lot smoother.  I cannot wait to use it.

***I had also pre-ordered book that was just released on the 22nd.  In tacking my package, I found that it will be delivered to my house today.  Is is bad that I am just as excited about this as anything else?  Talk about being a nerd!  This will be great motivation for me to get done all I have to get done early in the weekend, so I can delve into my new book.  Maybe I will get to take my new reel AND my new book out on Sunday morning!

For other fragmenters, please go visit Mrs.4444.  If you are lucky, you will get her coveted Favorite Fragmenter award; I got it once, and I have forever strived (striven?) to get it again, it is that cool.

  1. If you are talking about the new Diana Gabaldon book ECHO IN THE BONE…it arrived at my house today too! I’m so excited! I wanted to finish reading the whole series before starting it but I’m not sure I can wait that long!!!

  2. I can’t believe someone would say that about Hannah “getting away.” What an idiot. Obviously they’ve never been in a situation where they felt threatened, scared, violated, and numb all at once. I can’t read comments to newspaper articles they really piss me off. Here some lady was shot in the head by her husband who had been abusing her and some jackass said that “she probably deserved it because all military wives are gold diggers who deserve a thump in the head.” I about lost it. People are so stupid.

    I hope next week’s mornings go smoother!

    Also, have fun reading and using your new reel.

    • @Mrs. Ski, Seriously, do you still have the link? I swear to gOd that is a driect quote. I almost went in there and told her that I hoped someone would run over her dog and burn her house down, but I changed my mind at the last minute and said something wise and proufund about her attitude is why men think they can get away with it. Numb cu*t. Well, I left out that last bit.

      : )

  3. Do you know I have never pre-ordered a book? And I order them all the time and look forward to them coming out,I don’t know why I never have… Just weird? 😉

    • @Krissa, Honestly, the only reason I pre-ordered is because it was 40% off if you did, which ended up being almost exactly what I had left in my amazon account. In fact, I think I have less than three dollars left in it now, but I got it bought and shipped for less than $20.00. Harback, just released, can’t beat that!

  4. OMG, I cant believe someone would say that about the girl getting away! Grrr….
    I really hope your weekend goes smoothly and that next week is smooth too! Enjoy your new book and rod and reel!! 🙂 GREAT fragments!

  5. Ignore the douchebag commenters.

    TRUST ME, Kori, they will always be there. Even now, I still have people say “Haven’t you moved on yet? It’s not like it was yesterday?”

    UMM, shut the fuck up.

    So yes, ignore those douchebags. Hannah is strong enough, don’t let them bring her (and you) down.

    And I think fishing and a book is a wonderful idea for a mini vaca for you!
    .-= Heather´s last blog ..Season of Change =-.

    • @Heather, It is true, we have had a lot of experience with people like that. and even though I know it is their ignorance, it still hurts sometimes. I didn’t tell Hannah that there were any comments, either; I didn’t want her to go in and see that kind of crap.

  6. Steve is a lucky guy to be able to get away with getting a fishing pole for a gift. 🙂

    And that commenter? A serious fuckwad.

    Have a great weekend! And don’t waste any more coffee by dropping it. Egads, woman!
    .-= melissaz´s last blog ..Friday Fragments =-.

    • @mub, It is a little bit scary sometimes how closeminded a lot of peopel are. and for the most part, I don’t read any of the comments either, just in this situation I wanted to see if anyone I knew said anything. And then i thought, “I hope this isn’t someone I know!”

  7. Stupid commentator on that article. 15yo girl vs 62yo man… there are so many more layers to that interaction besides physical power, and even then the man has an advantage. Bitch-ass idiot.

    I love new books. I put them on hold at the library and it’s like picking up a present on my way home 🙂
    .-= Cat´s last blog ..Monday morning, rain is falling =-.

  8. Wow @ that idiot commenter. Hopefully you had a good weekend and got to enjoy your book and your new reel. Glad to hear Steve will be okay. And Happy Belated Anniversary!!
