  • CVS, cigarettes and complete and utter bullshit…

    So I guess CVS moved up their timeline to stop selling cigarettes ‘cause this morning I went in and asked for a pack of Pall Mall 100s and instead of telling me that they didn’t have any the woman proceeds to go to the cigarette case and then hands me this thing that looks like a small pack of cigarettes and it’s called ‘the last pack’ (or something like that) and it’s full of literature and charts all about how bad smoking is for me. Before I even got a chance to say a single word she starts opening it up and explaining what it is and tells me, “We stopped selling cigarettes because they are bad for you…and here’s all the reasons why and what they do to your body.”

    As I definitely realize the whole situation was not her fault I kept my mouth shut and simply said, “No thank you. I’ll just go elsewhere.”

    Here’s the thing: I’m not an idiot. I’m 30 damned years old - I know it’s fucking bad for me…but until it’s illegal I’ll thank you [CVS corporate] to stop being obnoxious and infringing on my rights to put whatever the hell I want in my body. Your company wants to stop selling cigarettes? Fine. But don’t get all damned preachy with me about how I should stop smoking. It’s not like they were pushing the ‘stop smoking’ literature while they were still selling cigarettes.

    They have no ‘moral high ground’ to stand on.

    I mean shit, if they are really concerned with the health of their customers perhaps they should get the beer and wine coolers out of their stores too? Or, all the over caffeinated energy drinks that they sell to minors almost in bulk. How about they start locking up the over the counter cough syrup that you don’t get carded to purchase? ‘Cause you know, those things are great for your health.

    I guess I should just be consoled by the fact that CVS is going to be hit where it hurts in the long run with this decision - the bank.

    …and there’s a really special place in hell for people without the balls to say shit to someone’s face. But hey, everyone’s got personality deficits - this is apparently yours.
    Btw: It’s a fucking tumblr. Where opinions (especially unpopular ones) are free to frolic and run around and breed discontent amongst the masses.

    Extremely random BTVS fandom flashback thoughts -

    I miss Xander and Cordelia. They worked in a really human way (which considering the subject matter of the show in question made them unique at the time).
    I’m still convinced Willow wasn’t doing much ‘de-lusting’ so much as ‘lusting’ with her magic at the time (purposefully btw). ‘Cause, she might have had Oz…but that didn’t mean anyone (let alone Cordelia) should/could/would have Xander either. We know she’s capable of doing shitty things to get her way (Tara’s mind rape anyone?). And after all, why should she care? Oz (who’s apparently a frickin doormat) took her back, Buffy gave her sympathy (nevermind the girl with the large chunk of metal through her stomach) and Xander didn’t have a S.O that could interfere with Willow-time. It all worked out for Willow. (if it wasn’t apparent - Willow? Not my favorite character ever)
    So yea, while I enjoyed the idea of Angel and Cordelia later on in the BtVS-verse (more so then B/A - ‘cause teenage angst vs honest friendship? Which would you want a relationship built on?) they never quite rang as real as Xander and Cordy. A relationship that we know could work being that Anya was basically Cordelia-lite.

    Rachel Zane annoys the crap out of me.
    Bitch you cheated - he came home…count your blessings and let him process at his own speed. There’s some more important stuff going on then just your relationship.

    Long Island, New York inundated with flash floods

    A storm dumped an entire summer’s worth of rain on parts of Long Island, leading to a fatal crash Wednesday and stranding drivers on roads flooded with door-handle-high water.

    A person died when an SUV was hit by a tractor-trailer at 4:40 a.m. on the Long Island Expressway near Dix Hills, during the height of the storm, according to Suffolk County Police Chief James Burke. He said it appeared the SUV was driving slowly when it was hit by the larger vehicle.

    The person who died was in the SUV; the body was burned beyond recognition, said Burke.

    The staggering rain total, over 13 inches, was recorded from Tuesday evening until Wednesday morning at an airport in the hamlet of Ronkonkoma in Islip. That was more than the area’s normal total for June, July and August of 11.75 inches, said Joe Pollina of the National Weather Service. More than 5 inches of it fell in just a one-hour period, from 5 to 6 a.m. Wednesday, Pollina said.

    Volunteer firefighters used rafts to rescue drivers, Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone said.

    The flooding wreaked havoc on the morning commute, and parts of the Southern State Parkway, a key route, were closed. (AP)

    And here we go again…

    Between Hurricane Sandy and last night - I am so frickin glad we live about a 1/4 of a mile north of the South Shore flood zones.

    Despite that all the screens on the east side of our house blew in and basically caused a waterfall into the house on 3 floors until we could get the windows closed (and the only reason we even noticed is because my room is the only bedroom on the east side of the house). We left them open in the first place ‘cause we weren’t supposed to have that kind of storm - just rain.

    For those of you not from Long Island the weatherman told us to ‘expect some rain for tonight’ yesterday afternoon. Umm…almost a foot of rain in about 12 hours is some rain? Okay. Sure. (we personally got 8.20” in Massapequa).

    Meanwhile, my friend owns a recording studio in Wantagh that wound up basically under water. I love Long Island but this weird weather shit is getting ridiculous.

    My cousin essentially all but got down on her hands and knees and begged me to let her clean out my room. Proceeded to set me up in her room with my laptop and was like, “Just don’t come upstairs. I won’t throw anything out that isn’t garbage.” I offered to help and she was like, “No. Go away.”

    Now…the reason this is like a ‘big deal’ is that my room is kind of on the small side and has all my shit from my dorm and my post-college apartment sort of just thrown in there in storage bins so it just kind of resembles a storage closet with a tv and a bed. I never had the time/energy/inclination to truly unpack since I moved back home a few years after college. I always figured, “If I unpack everything and get too comfortable I’m stuck here and I’m never getting my own place again.”

    I can feel the anxiety creeping up on me over this whole ordeal. Her brother keeps giving me nasty looks like I asked her to do it. And she’s been finding shit that I honestly thought I tossed out after high school.

    The perils of moving back into your childhood home for whatever reason. Ugh.

    (I don’t understand why she unpacked all my china though - digging out my books/dvds yes…the china and kitchenware though?)

Alexis Bledel and Vincent Kartheiser are now married, Gossip Cop reports.
The 32-year-old actress and 35-year-oldMad Men star got married back in June in a secret ceremony. Congrats to the couple on this wonderful news!
In attendance at the ceremony were some of Vincent‘s Mad Men co-stars.
Alexis and Vincent began dating in 2012 when she filmed a stint on the hit AMC show, and got engaged last year.
Congratulations again to the very happy couple! We can’t wait for more details about the wedding ceremony!

I’d be lying if I said my inner 12 year old didn’t just choke back a little sob. I very clearly remember stating my intentions of marrying him back in ‘96 when ‘Alaska’ came out. (well…marrying him and jonathan brandis and jonathan jackson and andrew keegan…yes, at 12 I had planned on a harem).
…admittedly, he didn’t age all that well did he?

    …huh. I’ve been pretty much saying that “Joss Whedon is God” since BtVS came out. So, all this really does is enforce said belief. He’s into smiting now.
