The bee-eff has agreed to watch some Doctor Who with me. Colour me ecstatic and surprised and rather giddy! :D
I’m sorry, but the best response to seeing me tweet about not wanting to answer my phone because I’m in an awful mood is not to send me a text asking what’s going on and whether whatever it is is going to affect our weekend plans. I want to cry.
I don’t want to be a feminist anymore. Like a five-year-old, I want to close my eyes, stick my fingers in my ears, stomp my feet on the floor and scream “No! No, you cannot make me, I won’t, leave me alone!” I am, simply put, too tired. So very, very tired.
I am tired of fighting with my friends. I am tired of arguing that someone groping and slapping my butt isn’t “what I have to expect,” just because I’m at a bar, and the one attacking my butt has a drink in the other hand. I am tired of hearing “boys will be boys” and “when you’re dressed like that …” and “that’s just what guys do.” I am tired of trying to drown those sentiments in loud, repetitive no’s, screamed over and over again, till my throat is sore and my voice weak – just to hear them repeated, as soon as exhaustion threatens to silence me.
I am tired of being afraid. I am tired of seeing someone writing something offensive, sexist, racist, ageist, ableist, somewhere online. I am tired of seeing those writings getting likes and lol’s, and SO TRUE’s. I am tired of being consumed by confusion and anger, typing, typing, typing and typing a seemingly endless response, including research, links and statistics, and then hesitate clicking “submit.” I am tired of knowing that I hesitate because I am afraid of the flood of responses that will come. I am tired of knowing that I will be bombarded with lighten up’s, stop whining’s and get a sense of humor’s for so long, that I will start to wonder if I am indeed wound up too tight, a nagger and humorless. I am tired of the fact that I’m afraid of being called a cunt, even though I don’t find genitalia insulting or demeaning.
Read this entire thing! So good.
I tested Walmart’s brand of bottled water and I was shocked to see they sell the most toxic water ever. I tested for Total Dissolved Solids using a TDS meter and the number I got was 271. THAT IS THE MOST TOXIC WATER I HAVE EVER SEEN. Even NYC tap water TDS score is 39. Poland Spring is 42. The water is not even drinkable. I think it’s Criminal to even make profits from selling this water filled with sodium fluoride and who knows what else is in that. 500 ppm (parts per million) is the EPA Maximum but even though the FDA is corrupt their recommended is 000, which is pure.
THE ONLY BOTTLED WATER THAT READS 000 IS DUANEreade/Walgreens ‘NICE’ branded water.

You’re not being too forward at all, my dear. My sister basically said the same thing to me last night when I told her that he hadn’t wanted to go and see a concert with me for a myriad of reasons I won’t even bother going into.
It isn’t like he’s said that no, I can’t watch Doctor Who on my birthday. The problem is that I don’t want to make him grumpy because I’m making him do something he doesn’t want to do, and that’s much easier to do than it really ought to be, if I’m being honest. I can realistically watch Doctor Who whenever I want to, so forcing him to sit and watch it with me just because it’s my birthday would just end up making us both miserable.
Doesn’t this make my relationship sound like peaches and cream. I’m depressed now.
I’ve been trying to think of things I want to do for my birthday this year. One of the top ideas was to choose my favourite episode (or two, if they’re two-parters) from each season of Doctor Who and watch ‘em all. Sadly, since I’m spending my birthday with my boyfriend, I doubt I’ll be able to do that, since he has no interest whatsoever in watching Doctor Who. Regardless, here are the eps I would have chosen (maybe they’ll just have to wait till Victoria Day):
Season one: The Empty Child / The Doctor Dances
Season two: The Girl in the Fireplace, Army of Ghosts / Doomsday
Season three: Gridlock, Blink
Season four: Silence in the Library / Forest of the Dead, Midnight
Season five: The Beast Below, Vincent and the Doctor
Season six: The Rebel Flesh / The Almost People, A Good Man Goes to War
What would you have chosen?
“There is a wish granter on the other end of every wish; deciding if the laws of Magic permit them to grant it and then figuring out how to best fulfill your wish. Genies. Gnomes. Birthday Clowns. These magical creatures all work in the same office: Wish It Inc.”
Wish It Inc. is a start-up web series that is in need of funding to get started on what will undoubtedly be an amazing show.
Come on, it’s starring Ellen McLain (GLaDOS). You CANNOT go wrong with that.
As of 11:00am MST on May 17th, they’re at approximately $14,600 of their $35,000 goal, and they only have six days left to raise the remaining funds. Please go and support these filmmakers.
