20 hours of work in the last 2days and I’m logging on to work from home. At this rate, I’ll hit 60 by the end of the week.
I was the first one and my office yesterday at 7:15. I was the last one to leave my office yesterday at 7:15 p.m.. And now here I am back at 7:45 the first one in and probably will be the last one out.
It seems that I’ve forgotten how to patiently stargaze. I’ve been outside maybe 5 minutes, and about ready to back in already without one meteor crossing the sky.
Tripping Daisy-I Got A Girl
When I was 14, I was living in North Carolina. This band was coming to town on a school night(I was 14). I wanted my brother(10yrs older) to take me in the worst way possible. I argued with my mom about how I deserved to go to the show. She wouldn’t budge-i wasn’t doing anything on a school night.
I yelled at her and asked “why don’t you ever let me do anything?!?!”
She replied “because I’m your mother, that’s why.”
And being the angsty, badass teen I thought I was, I replied,
"You’re only my mother by name!!"
I’m adopted and she’s loved me since before I was born.
She instantly had tears well up in her eyes, and she replied with her right hand firmly across my left cheek.
That’s the one and only time my mother has ever struck me. And I completely deserved it.
A good friend’s nephew went missing in Portland, Oregon. Suspected case of Human Trafficking as he was lured to couple’s home after answering a Craigslist ad about employment as a caretaker. Please reblog & share in hopes of finding info for his family.
I soooo didn’t diet today.
Homemade pulled pork in the crock pot, began cooking last night and simmered all day today.
Placed atop Kings sweet Hawaiian bread rolls.
Coupled with Cole slaw(I cheated, got it from Safeway).
I’ve been in such a fat phase lately.
I constantly struggle between “I’m so sick of being obese and not having clothes fit me correctly” and “damn, I can cook-must eat everything in sight.”
Tonight, I succumbed and ate and enjoyed it fully.
A family from Hammond, Indiana is suing the Hammond Police department for excessive force after what should’ve been a routine traffic stop turned violent. Lisa Mahone was driving with her boyfriend Jamal Jones and her two children to Stroger Hospital when Hammond police pulled her over for not wearing a seatbelt. Mahone admitted to the violation and asked for a ticket so she could continue on her way to the hospital to visit her dying mother.
Though Mahone was the operator of the vehicle and produced valid identification and proof of insurance, police demanded to see identification from Jones as well. Jones informed the officers he didn’t have ID, as he recently received a ticket. After attempting to reach into the backseat and produce the ticket from a backpack, the officers drew their guns.
Mahone’s 14-year-old son then began recording the encounter with his cell phone and Mahone dialed 911.
According to Fox Chicago, an officer told Jones “”I don’t know you and I don’t know what you’re going to do.” Jones told the cops “That’s why I have my windows up. I’m not no harm to you right now. I got my kids in the car and you’re drawing your weapon.”
Police refused to take the ticket from Jones as ID and ordered him out of the vehicle. “Once the kids were scared, I wasn’t gonna get out of the car and leave my kids in the car,” said Jones. “He was being so aggressive.”
While Mahone was relating the story as it happened to the 911 operator, Jones demanded to see a “white shirt,” a commanding officer. The officer on the scene told Jones “Look at my shoulder dumbass. I got bars.” Video shows that after asking Jones another time if he was going to exit the car, an officer then breaks the passenger window, shocks Jones with a taser, then pulls him out of the car.
This is fucking disgusting.
Can’t wait to hear the new excuses for why the police aren’t fucking straight-up terrorists on this one.
This is terrible. Hopefully these offrcers are reprimanded because this is unacceptable. There is no protecting, no serving. Only abuse of the badge. So sad these children had to see this.
