    I mean, I get it, it’s a tv show. Of course the trainers are going to be attractive in face, as well as body, but God gave Jessie Pavelka more then his fair share of pretty. Good lord.

    So, I finally finished “Gone Girl”…
    *potential spoilers below the cut*

    apparently we could open a pharmacy…

    Between my mother (bipolar), my grandmother (peripheral vascular disease…also, she’s freaking 84) and myself (ocular migraines) we have a lot of prescription medications. It’s not usually my ‘job’ in the grand scheme of running the household (of 7 people total) to manage the meds monthly - so I never realized exactly what’s there nor exactly quite how many we have.

    My mom had things to do outside the house this disgustingly humid Saturday morning so after making sure my grandmother (who just last wee had her right leg amputated above the knee) was settled for the first part of the morning I sat down to go through all the prescription medications in the house to make sure that everything was filled and available (calling in refills where necessary) I have come to only one conclusion -

    we seriously have enough controlled substances (legally) in this house between the three of us to make the DEA nervous (or if it really came down to it - the means to make a lot of money).

    Seriously, look at this shit (and these are only the ones that tend to be considered ‘recreationally fun’ by today’s moronic teenagers):

    Grandma: percocet (nighttime pain), xanax, ambien (for the nights her dementia has her violent), seroquel (for the nights when her dementia has her really, really violent), buspar (for the dementia effects in the daytime - keeps her calm without knocking her out), Tylenol 3 (daytime pain).

    Mom: vicodin, trazadone, abilify, klonopin.

    Me: vicodin, valium (it’s the only anti-anxiety medication that doesn’t react with the anti-seizure meds I have in my ‘migraine cocktail’).

    Book question

    Since the movie for “Gone Girl” will be coming out in October I decided it was finally time to finish reading the novel. I got about 1/3 of the way through a little over a year ago and had to stop reading because I kept thinking, “If he did kill her…I sort of wouldn’t blame him. She’s a really unpleasant human being.” There’s a real issue when you’re sympathizing with the prime suspect.

    Now that there’s all this press about the movie and talking about, “strange plot twists” and “unreliable narration to keep the reader guessing” I’m going to try it again.

    Has anyone read this novel yet? Is it worth it?

    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.
