hearing people chew is seriously the worst sound in the world
Members of Congress are living off food stamps for a week to protest Republican cuts. It’s a challenge for them, but GOP cuts would hurt millions of everyday Americans.
Why does this not have more publicity. This needs it!
Signal boosting this A) because it deserves to be seen by more people, and b) because I appreciate some members of Congress are actually willing to see what it’s like living on food stamps in order to make their point about how horrifying cutting food stamps would be.
News flash, regressives: people on food stamps do not load up on Snickers bars and filet mignon. They’re limited in what they can buy, and oftentimes, it’s not enough to get by on. Go on thinking these are entitlements that let minorities live lives of luxury, comfortable in the knowledge that you’ll never go hungry.
You privileged, elitist pricks.
Okay this scene means a lot to me. This and the one in Buffy season 7 when the phone rings and Buffy says “Who’s calling? Everyone I know lives here.” They both mean a lot.
Because I learned a lot of important life lessons from these tv shows. And books where the characters go together to solve stuff. In any case, they always live (/spend a lot of time) together.
This is what I have always imagined my future being. Kids, no kids, So, no SO, it’s always had this. I’ve imagined living with my friends, all of them, and their partners, for life. And when our group was too big I imagined buying houses right next to each other. Buffy, Friends, Charmed, Xena, everyone being all together. And that’s part of why I struggle, is cause it’s easy to leave your room or go next door, its harder when driving and gas are a factor.
I just want to live with all my friends in a really big house and cook for them (extravagant meals one day and nutella and yaki ramen the next cause thats how i roll). I want everyone together and I don’t know how to do that. I guess most people don’t live like that but it’s what I’ve imagined since seeing these shows. Its something I desperately want/need but I don’t think anyone else has.

UPDATE #2: Why do babies find its the best time to start making noise when you’re on the phone?
The recruiter called back, and I passed his preliminary questions: no major health problems, good ACT score, over 18 blah blah blah.
Halfway through “do you have any kids?” “Nope.” Two minutes later: “Are you babysitting a baby right now?” “Yes, I am.. “
Anyway, I have a meeting with him on Thursday at 2pm, gotta get some gas. Buuuuut. It’s the first step guys. I feel brave. He’s sending me an application and it’s apparently really long and intimidating, but I gotta bring it with me. He said with an ACT score like I’ve got, the tests shouldn’t be too hard to pass.
UPDATE: Babybutt was not just farting. Grossss.
So the recruiter called me… but I missed it cause I was taking care of ze baby. I called him back and left a message- so now I’m waiting again. I’m hoping he calls back today.
Also, babybutt is currently living up to his name by turning in circles in the living room… and farting. He’s so proud of himself too.
When I hit my goal weight I may just have to celebrate by buying awesome nerdy workout shirts.
These might actually give me enough incentive to start working out again.
