Either way, I'm off to my first day of graduate school. I probably have midterms next week.

I got this alert this weekend:

" On August 29, 2014 at approximately 5:00 pm, a female UNH student reported that at 1:45 am on Garrison Avenue in the area Strafford Avenue and Madbury Road, 3 white males described as ?military looking? pulled up to her in a tan 4 door sedan with South Carolina plates, 2 of the males got out of the vehicle and tried talking the female student into going with them. The males took the female student by the arm and tried moving her to the vehicle. The males opened the trunk of the vehicle trying to get the female into the trunk. Some male friends of the female student came along and the male suspects got back in the vehicle and left area. The female student was not injured. "

Gonna be a hell of a fucking semester.

That's less of an alert and more "Attempted kidnapping". I'm guessing fuck all gets done until someone shows up dead.

Yeah well, my husband is a wee pissed off. Because of the "military looking" description, both the Navy shipyard and the Air Force base were also alerted. The shipyard  just got a new submarine in to be overhauled, and a garrison of Marines also just moved in. Chances are it's not anyone from the bases and probably some ROTC brats on campus, but now they have to deal with that potential. And, you know, being immediately cast in a negative spotlight by the new freshmen's snowplow parents, in addition to the trustafarians bitching that the shipyard is an "eyesore" that ruins their perfect view of Kittery Foreside, therefore harshing their New England Experience or some shit, this isn't really a hit the military needs right now when they employ 3/4 of the fucking population in this city.

My parents were pretty laid back and never gave me much grief. But I was always the jeans and t-shirt kind of girl, but I did have some interesting wardrobe choices when the situation called for it.

I don't have my own children, but, as a woman who was once a young woman in her teens, as long as she is comfortable and it doesn't get her in trouble in school with the stupid dress codes, go for it. I could say, "Oh, be modest, wear this, wear that..." but a woman can and SHOULD always feel confident about her body and in her clothing choices. If it is a bit too sexualized or revealing, it's not my place to judge. You guys are still her parents and will always have the final say.  Let her experiment and find a style she likes, and be supportive.

In the end, it was my school that bothered me more about a tank top than my parents ever did. We lived in Florida, and they didn't allow spaghetti straps. WTF?

In other bullshit cease and desist news: Apparently a handful of Bostonian yuppies who decided to move out to the "country" (Fact: Portsmouth is NOT the country) are complaining about all the gosh darn "noise" downtown because Portsmouth is actually a city with festivals and movies in the park and such. So the arts festival actually listened to them and cancelled the movie double feature for tonight. They're even complaining about a musical being put on every night in the park downtown. THE SAME PEOPLE ARE CALLING EVERY FUCKING NIGHT to the point the cops are pissed. Because nothing is actually happening that is breaking the law, and all events end before 11pm. The locals are now in a total uproar and have started a counteroffensive called Keep Portsmouth Loud and selling obnoxious hot green and pink T-shirts with that saying on it. I need to give them my money, because I was looking forward to hitting a movie in the park night once the husband's training is over.

Seriously, you move to a seaside tourist destination city to get away from the big city in hopes of quiet? Morons.

Hey Portland, can we borrow your unicycle Darth Vader with the bag pipes?

Yea, like a week ago or so, I'd seen the posts that they were throwing the Movie in the Park event and thought it was awesome. This week people are already complaining about it. What a crock of shit. An art-based tourist center and they're going to complain about the arts and tourists. People who always need to be complaining, especially to ruin a good time for everyone else, really are near the top of my list of People I Hate Most. And like my friends in the area said, they're probably the same people up at the crack of dawn mowing their fucking lawns while everyone else is trying to sleep.

It's the same 4 people. Over and over again. I have no idea why the festival is listening to them, because the cops already told them that they need to suck it up. Something tells me that these are also the same people who hate the idea of Portsmouth being a *gasp* working port where tankers come in and ship things, and that the Naval Shipyard is an eyesore.  :roll:

This is what happens when your rich Bostonian parents leave you a fucking trust fund, you go to Harvard, you never work a day in your life and you decide to be "hip" by buying an old Victorian for millions in downtown Portsmouth so you don't have to pay Massachusetts taxes on your independent wealth while getting socked for New Hampshire property tax. However, since you never worked a day in your sheltered life, you don't understand that other places don't just thrive on being a pretty tourist destination. If the port and shipyard were to close to meet every rich shitfuck's expectation of their New Hampshire tax dodging paradise, Portsmouth would die. Not to mention, the shipyard is in Maine. What are they going to do? Write letters to another fucking state? PEOPLE ACTUALLY FUCKING WORK FOR A LIVING IN THIS AREA, AND IT'S NOT JUST AT KITSCHY STORES AND RESTAURANTS, GODDAMNIT.

Oh Jesus Fuck, it's finally happened.

After 12 years, I'm officially a Rhode Islander: Somebody I know made the news.

Maybe I shouldn't move back. Maybe we'll just deal with Connecticut after all.

I'm thinking I need to take a picture of me at the bus stop next Tuesday. I'm feeling a little left out here with Timmy's first day at 2nd grade pictures all over the Facebook.

"Suu's first day of her Master's Degree!"

And I will stand there, with my backpack on, wearing something cute, and staring all pouty at the ground.

Okay, not only did the fucker want my passwords, he threatened my daughter.  That's after he called me a motherfucker for messing with his head because he impersonated working for a friend of mines company.  Right, unlawful call center is right up their stinkin' chicken tamari asses.  You know, it's when "enough" is just not gonna to cut it.   Fucking cockroaches.  [LuciferX venting at how people think they can color him red]

Ummm....

Another goddamn pregnant friend. :crankey:

I'm a fan of how DC sort of breaks up the list of New England fail on the list:

Providence
Springfield
Washington
Boston
Worcester

4 out of 5 of the absolute bottom. That's impressive, everyone. Good job. Keep not using your blinkers, we have a reputation to uphold.

13
To be fair, the main reason Worcester is on the bottom can be immediatly attributed to Kelley Square.



It's even got a damn Facebook page.


https://www.facebook.com/pages/Kelley-Square-Worcester-Massachusetts/191022054261181

Richter and Leln can tell you all about Kelley Square. And their dad full on believes that the city actually changes regularly on its own. Roads move and shit overnight just to fuck with its citizens more.

My old home tops the list of safest places to drive...Boston bottoms:

Portland comes in the lower quarter (177 out of 200). I have contributed to that.

This isn't news for anyone who lives in New England. I take my life into my own hands every time I get behind the wheel.

Oh.  Shit.  Someone re-added me to The Discordian Society.  No wonder my feed has been so retarded of late.  TDS2014, while still retarded, is no more so than normal or expected.  My bad.

Right, whichever of you fuckers keeps on doing that, stop it.

Ditto. I'm just going to block the damn groups or something. They're driving me nuts.
