I watched a show on the Mafia tonight....

Currently listening to: A mix CD I made that includes the song Iambic 5 Poetry by Squarepusher
Reminds me of: The time I made a similar mix for a friend of mine at Biola, and one night I was walking to his room in Sigma and he had this song BLASTING on his stereo. If you've never heard this song, find it somewhere and listen. I felt like I was walking into a dream.

Nathan came home tonight and repeated to me something one of his patients said, and my head almost imploded. Some people should have their mouths permanently duct taped shut. And I just happen to have a list of who those people are!

1. Nathan's patient. Let's just call her Gertrude to protect the stupid. Nathan was telling her about Judah and mentioned that he wakes up usually once a night to eat. Her response: "Oh, you need to break him of that." Excuse me? How do you break a baby of waking up hungry in the night?!? Nathan asked her and she said, "Oh, there are ways." So he said, "How? I'm interested!" And she said, "Um, well....my son was sleeping through the night earlier than that." Yeah, ON HIS OWN. So she didn't actually BREAK HIM of the habit, did she? Moron.

2. Tom Cruise. Anyone else hear of his criticism of Brooke Shields? Yeah, apparently he doesn't approve of her using medication to help her get over post partum depression. According to him, it's not the right way to go about it, and she should have been able to lift herself out of it, presumably with the help of scientology. Because he's the authority on these things. Please. Has he ever given his body over to the completely irrational rule of a developing human being for nine plus months, had his hormone levels increase 7000 percent, undergone hours of the most intense pain known to human kind, had his body ripped apart in very personal and sensitive places, and then been handed a person who has no regard for his opinions, needs, and wants and that has to be tended to 24 hours a day every day without a break at the same time as his body is trying to recover from all this trauma? No? Well, until he has, he can just SHUT THE HELL UP.

3. The entire jury on the Michael Jackson case. How do they sleep at night?

4. Barbra Streisand. Every time I read a comment from her I'm amazed at her stupidity. Here's the latest: "The idea of a liberal media bias is simply a myth. If only it were true, we might have a more humane, open-minded, and ultimately effective public debate on the issues facing the country. We may actually embrace the principles of liberalism..." She thinks the media's not liberal? What country does she live in? And speaking of, she promised she'd leave the US if we elected George W. Bush. So why isn't she gone? She promised!!

That's enough for tonight. I feel better now, don't you?

2. Tom Cruise is his own media circus. It's like a train wreck. What is Katie Holmes thinking?!
4. She actually thinks that a media bias (her bias, of course) would lead to more effective public debate? Um, yeah, that's logical. Debate isn't about presenting a biased view of the issues. I can't stand Streisand, but maybe that's just because it's HER fault people spell my name wrong. Grrr.

2. Tom Cruise is freaky crazy. He's a chimp short of being Michael Jackson.

3. The Jackson jury were handed a victim from a very disreputable family. It was all he said / she said and it looked as though everyone was a bad guy. The fact that it appears his mother pimped him out to the King of Touching Himself makes me feel sorry for the kid. As for MJ... wait for the Jew-bashing to begin (I'm not Jewish but I find it offensive).

Kristy said...

Nope, didn't read all of it, just the more recent ones. The rest I browsed through looking at pictures and stuff. But I'm sure I'll read more of it soon. You're a good writer!

KMOB said...

well thanks for the compliment and for all the browsing! i try to write but sometimes it feels so wrong!!

Barbara said...

Just to return to the Tom Cruise train wreck, I just came across this Brooke Shields quote you'll appreciate if you haven't seen it elsewhere, Kristy: "Tom should stick to saving the world from aliens and let women who are experiencing postpartum depression decide what treatment options are best for them."
