Don’t Worry, Brock. Your Punishment is Coming.

You. A rapist freed from jail after 3 months of a 6 months “sentence”. 


Is there anything more disappointing?

Not really. Especially not for the lady that you raped. She’s still trying to live a somewhat normal life after you destroyed it with your 20 minutes of action. 

But, you know what Brock, you are out of jail now so it’s time for your real punishment. I don’t mean your probation. I mean your life sentence in the eyes of the world. 

You shall never have a normal life again. You may have a place to live now and food on your table but your world is no longer in your control. You’ll be hunted down. And when I say hunted I mean both physically and verbally. People will try to kill you with their words. Heaven forbid you try to leave your home. There are a lot of pissed off people that want blood. Your blood.

So, you better get ready to skip out of town at a moment’s notice. I’m sure a petition has been circling to get your family kicked out of your current neighborhood because No one wants to live near a rapist. 

What about your future? Shit, you don’t have a future. 


Your schooling? Probably not gonna happen unless…Nope, probably not going to happen. 

A job? Not unless you change your name, social security number and have a complete plastic surgery makeover. Even an online one will require personal info. 

Girlfriend?? Oh please. No one is gonna fuck you. Ever. 

You’ll live with your parents until they die. You’ll become a hermit. It’s a good thing you can order food and toilet paper online. You might want to stock up. 

As for your victim, she’ll be unfairly punished for the rest of her life as well only her punishment isn’t room and board on the government’s dime. 

Her punishment is living constant fear and reliving that night in her mind forever. 

She didn’t do anything but briefly engage with you. If she “teased” you, so what?? If she “tempted” you, so WHAT? If she looked in your general direction, she STILL did not deserve her punishment. What she deserved was justice and she was punished by the judge. And her sentence is for life, you son of a bitch. 

Are you fucking hearing me right now?!? 

So, this is your punishment, your sentence. A life that is not a life at all. No freedom, no peace, deemed the most hated individual on the planet. AND IT IS STILL NOT ENOUGH. 

As for us, the women of the world, we will be standing outside your door with pitchforks. Watching your every move, protecting our young daughters from you and other entitled assholes like you. 

You may not be able to see us but I promise you, we are there and we won’t be leaving anytime soon.

The Next Netflix Show You Should Binge Watch is…

Lists are fun. Personality tests are also kinda fun. What if I told you that I could pick the next great Binge-worthy show based on just a few personality traits? Even though the extent of my knowledge in psychology is only based on a couple classes in college and a BuzzFeed test, I think I could really help you…find the next show to watch. 
Let’s say you are an outgoing person. Loud. Funny. Loudly Funny. You like being the center of attention. You like making your presence known. You are kinda quirky.

If this is you, your next show(s) should be this

Let’s say that while reading this post you need a fix. Tequila, a smoke, something stronger…I’m not here to judge. I’m just here to give you what you need. Something like this.

Let’s say you are my daughter….Boom
You’re an 80’s kid deep down in your soul, right?
You have a lot of secrets, don’t you?
You could be my mother.
You are definitely not my mother.

In conclusion, there is a show on Netflix that matches your personality type. 

Trust me.

The Best Kid Shows on Netflix (according to my daughter)

Mom, did you see Word Party? 

Mom, I want to watch Word Party!

Mom!! Word Party!! 

Once my daughter finds a show she likes, I hear about it…

Over and over and over and over and…

The Jim Henson creative team is behind this animated gem

This month, Hallie has been obsessed withthese shows:

  • Canimals
  • Word Party
  • Bo on the Go (She has rediscovered this one)

    Kawaii overload

But the one I really want her to get into is the new Beat Bugs. A cute, new animated series that uses Beatles songs as its inspiration. The group of bug friends have adventures in an overgrown garden. Songs like “Strawberry Fields” and “Eleanor Rigby” are among the songs that your kids will hear and enjoy! 
I’m not a huge Beatles fan myself but I can respect the cultural impact the iconic group and their music made in our society. I think it’s pretty important for my kids to get to know the songs by The Beatles and other famous bands and singers. 

So, the plan is to start watching ASAP. Maybe we’ll get some Beatles earworms stuck in our heads. 

Have you found a kid show on Netflix that you love? I want to know about it!

Blogger’s Note: Our family watches Netflix more than we eat crackers. And we love crackers. So, it’s a joy to continue watching and reviewing for Netflix. Plus, Netflix is calorie-free. 

Trapezes and Lions and MAGIC Stays With You.

There are smells that will take me back to my childhood. Mostly food items; popcorn, funnel cakes, and cotton candy. Granted, there are a lot of different events that sell these types of yummy treats but to me, it all points back to when my parents took me to the traveling circus. 

It was our family routine to go see the circus. We would walk the path littered with hay and sawdust to a giant red and white striped tent. Once inside, we sat on wooden, wobbly bleachers that surrounded a circular stage. Dust and the aroma of the performing animals encompassed us as we impatiently waited for the ringleader. It was there I saw magic; magic I needed to be a part of. 

Because I wanted to be a trapeze artist but I was afraid of heights. 

Because I wanted to tame lions but I didn’t like the whip the tamer used. I wanted to train it like a pet. Like a giant pet cat. 

I wasn’t old enough to understand how things worked back then but oh, do I remember loving the circus. 

Times are different now. Circuses are different now but the magic remains and I want my kids to experience that magic for themselves. 

Luckily, The Ringling Bros Circus is heading to my city and their theme is OUT OF THIS WORLD!! I’m not really sure what that means but based on the photos I was sent, it looks AMAZING. 



AND THEY ARE ON ICE SKATES!! 

What?!?


And did you know that ice skating clowns are 50% funnier and 75% less scary than regular clowns. It’s true. I read it somewhere on a website so it must be true. 

So, if you are local to Southern California or planning to be in the area, join me and my family is seeing this magical show. It starts this week at the Staples Center and there’s a SPECIAL TICKET OFFER BELOW!! 

Then your kids will have memories of being trapeze artists when they grow up. 

Maybe. 


t.r.m. 

Blogger’s Note: The Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus Company is providing my family tickets to promote the coming of their show to the Los Angeles area. All that stuff I said about my memories of the circus was true. I’m really looking forward to this show!!! 


An Apology to My House

 

Sorry, House, but I’m not making you a priority today. It is HOT. Like ceiling fans goin’, who has the nearest pool, turn on the air conditioning as a last resort (like an hour after you get out of bed) HOT! 

I’ll get to you in a bit. 

Despite the fact the last three weeks were spent away, for me at least, I still have a suitcase full of clothes and I don’t even want to talk about the laundry. 

House, you are a freaking nightmare…and it looks like you are going to be that way for a while. Because I have the list of movies and shows that are airing on Netflix and it contains so many of my favorites. 

  • The Back to the Future Trilogy
  • Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
  • The Italian Job
  • The Lethal Weapon Series 
  • The Sting
  • Turner and Hooch
