Little House on the Pra--ARE YOU SERIOUS?!

...Tell me you're joking. That's just ridiculous. Holy shit...and Flowers for Algernon, too?! I loved that story!!!


And Madame Bovary?! Tell me you're kidding. That book was the chronicle of a dumbass woman who was never happy with life as she knew it... but what about it made it bannable?!

People today.

People people.

Welcome to society. It's full of idiots. Beware. >:E

Yes. Yes they are.

I'm starting to question this society more by the day...this society that finds Bridge to Terabithia more inappropriate than Marquis de Sade >.<()

Isn't it, though? *rolls eyes* Some people are idiots.


Hope the repair work is going alright. What about your basement? Did you lose anything valuable or precious to you? *hopes not* *snugsnug*

It will be dried out next week. I then need to get someone to go in and fix the walls, and floors. We lost a large portion of Ryk's book and my anime collection, vintage anime stuff from the 80s. They were in boxes, our scientific american collections, I suspect most of our christmas stuff, Ryk's dad's xmas bulbs, and antique family orinements... A lot of old art, SF books, Cp's school project... All of Donny's toys, Xcube and games that were on the floor...Anything paper that was in boxes, so a LOT of stuff. We lost the futon too. I haven't had a chance to go and check more yet, I honestly don't want to think about it... I'm hoping the Dalek is ok. We have a very BIG remote controlled dalek... I will mourn it if is is gone. *Sigh*

The goodnews is Maria was able to save many of her things.And most of the stuff in the storeroom were on shelves. My sister has got a place to sleep now upstairs, and is almost settled in. I'm cleaning up today, which will make things feel like normal. I'm feeling a lot better now actually. *HUGS* thanks for the concern.

Oh, damn, sweetie. *HUGS* I am so sorry that this has caused you so much pain. That's absolutely awful. *hugs tight* I'm glad that Maria didn't lose everything, at least. I am so upset for you. Is there anything you need? Let me know if I can do anything to help. *hugs tight*

Thank you *HUGS* I appreciate the offer, but I think we'll be ok. Things are ironing out slowly. LOL Event he kids are behaving for the most part.
*HUGS* thank you again.

To be honest, I think we've been very lucky, it could have been far worse. What I really need is to blow off some steam. Well, got to run. I have to clean the kitchen and living room! *HUGS*

*HUGS* If you think of anything I can do to help, let me know!

YAY for behaving kiddos! (Of course, if this is what it takes to get them to behave, I really don't think it's worth it.... haha)

You should RP. It will help you feel better and blow off some steam. ^__^ Or write fanfic. Anything mindless. XD
