    Characters That Got A Raw Deal

    What about Jeyne Poole? I don't even want to think about the raw deal she got. **shudder** I might be the only person on the planet earth who thinks Amy and Laurie made a lot more sense than Jo and Laurie.

    Miscellaneous Celebrity News

    Wasn't Blake Shelton married when he took up with Miranda Lambert? If so, this seems to be her thing. I never liked her; aside from making shitty music (IMHO), she seems like a drama queen. I kind of wish she would just go away.

    Jenelle: Birther Of 3, Mother To None

    "And even her mom"? She screams at her mom all the damn time!

    Jenelle: Birther Of 3, Mother To None

    I would wonder what Jenelle plans on doing once the MTV paycheck inevitably stops coming, but then I realize she would only search for the next abusive penis to latch onto, and procreate, with. Gross. LOL...so much for all that shit about saving lives, eh?

    Jenelle: Birther Of 3, Mother To None

    So, has she ever, at any point, worked a full-time job? Again, I just started re-watching the show after years of not watching, so forgive me if this is a stupid question.

    Jenelle: Birther Of 3, Mother To None

    I've heard people defending Jenelle's intelligence by saying she completed her medical assistant program, but didn't she fail her certification exam? Or am I remembering wrong? Anyway, Jenelle has never seemed all that bright to me, either. She probably passed her high school classes just fine, but that doesn't necessarily mean someone is intelligent. I knew a lot of dummies who practically slept through high school, or came to their classes hungover, and got through it. Sounds like Jenelle, to me.

    Jenelle: Birther Of 3, Mother To None

    This bitch lives for the drama. Can't go a single day without starting shit, with somebody. She reminds me a lot of my own mother, who would do the same thing. Good thing Twitter wasn't around in the 80's and 90's, or else it would have been a lot worse.

    I read See What I Have Done, by Sarah Schmidt, over the last few days. It's a fictional account of the Lizzie Borden case, and it's written from the POV of four characters. So, I wasn't exactly taken with this book, but I did like some things about it. I liked the dreamy writing style, and I liked the chapters from Emma's POV, since she was the most interesting character. I need to find another good nonfiction book on the Borden case, though, because I've had my fill of fiction.

    Laura Ingalls Wilder's "Little House" Series

    I realize Ma was very much a person of her time, but I can see why some Native Americans have had issues with the book being read to their kids, today. Wasn't there a Native American girl who cried when the book was read in her class, because of the, "The only good Indian is a dead Indian" line? So, yeah, it's a subject that definitely warrants discussion, especially if it's going to be read to young children. I never read any Edith Blyton. Was she the author who wrote those "golliwog" books?

    Unpopular Opinions

    Is it unpopular if I think Cannery Row is woefully underrated?

    Laura Ingalls Wilder's "Little House" Series

    Re-read Little House On the Prairie. Holy cheesballs, the racism. I knew this book was racist when I was a kid, but it hit me even harder, as an adult. Mrs. Scott is the worst, but Ma is no better. I realize it must have been scary to live among Indians when you'd never met any before and didn't know their customs, or their language, but Ma hates them on sight, and can't even deal with them. I can honestly say that this has become my least favorite book, on re-read. It makes me uncomfortable. 😕

    Jenelle: Birther Of 3, Mother To None

    Is Jenelle investing her money wisely? The MTV paycheck will stop coming eventually, and if she hasn't, she's pretty screwed. Forgive me if that's a stupid question, I haven't watched the show in years. I did watch a few clips on YouTube the other day, and I was reminded of what a trainwreck Jenelle was, and how she always seems to have some kind of drama, in her life. That girl is mentally ill.

    So What Are You Listening To?

    I love Lizzo. I wish she were better known.

    Just read The Paris Wife, by Paula McLain. It was okay. I thought Hadley was the biggest pushover to ever exist, but the last quarter of the book was actually kind of heartbreaking, so it wasn't all bad. I give it a B-.
