Forgiving is easy...

it is the forgetting that can prove to be a problem.

But what about when you are trying to forget about the situation and put things behind you but circumstances, or even people won't let you? What about when people want to flaunt or throw things back in your face when you are trying to go about your business and move one with your life.

What do you do when it seems like at every turn someone is trying to pull you back in the madness. They want to bring you back down because they see you are moving up and away from the drama.

Would this be a situation where shanking someone would be totally ok and even understandable?

If not how about repeatedly throat punching them?


Ummmm... busting a knee cap (or caps depending on how annoying they are and how long you want them to just sat down) with a tire iron?

Busting them in the head with a big rock? (shout out to my Bajan heritage)

Still not ok???

So if none of the above actions are appropriate or allowable, what would be the best course of action for dealing with people who won't let you move on? This inquiring mind sure would like to know.

***DISCLAIMER: this is all based on the understanding that while you have or are trying to move on and away from the people, place, or thing that resulted in the drama certain folks want to be on you like white on rice or wet on water trying to bring that mess up again even after you make it clear that you are D-O-N-E done with it.***

Random Ranting

Because sometimes life is a beeotch for real...

Life is funny… interesting, but funny none the less. Isn't it interesting how things and people change? Or not even so much how they change, but how their real character will eventually show out? Not only can the leopard not change its spots, it also cannot hide them. The truth has a way of slipping out no matter how much you try to cover it up. So why bother to cover stuff up? Just be up front about what is what and you don't end up with ugly situations in the end.

You know what else is very annoying, when people mistake silence for shyness and naivete. I am tired of people being nice to my face and smiling at me and looking at me trying to get back in my good graces. Why do they think I would want them back? Why do they think I would need them back? I am crazy but as I always tell people I am not stupid. I can see what is in front of me. I can comprehend a lot more than people give me credit for. I can see a situation for what it is. It is called discernment. It is called having two eyes in my head to see what is going on around me.

I hate it when people think they can manipulate me or take advantage of me for any reason. I was ok by myself and I can continue to be ok by myself. I do not need to be dependant on others for my happiness. And quite frankly I want no part of the "friendship" or whatever it is that you would call it. I don't want to be a part of the madness and the drama. I have enough drama of my own to want to invite some more. As the saying goes, why borrow trouble? The reality of the situation is that some people are trouble. They have issues and as a result trouble is their constant companion.

Just makes me want to scream.

Have you ever had that moment when you just want to smack the shit out of someone because you cannot believe that they have the nerve to be even speaking to you like you don't know what they did? I mean come on! If I told you that I knew more about people than they realized why continue with the pretense? GRRR!!! It just makes me so mad! I can't stand it! I just want to tell them to get the hell out of my face with the lies and the bull. I made my mistake in that I gave people the benefit of the doubt .. that was on me.. my mistake... I crossed that bridge… so I happily lit that thing up and watched it burn when I got to the other side and realized that it was a mistake to walk that bridge. I am a quick study… thank God for that. It does not take me repeatedly making the same mistake to get it. That really does not go over well with me.

I also don't like when people stalk my life and make groundless decisions based on random actions that they see. Simple bastards. I am not here to put on a show for anyone. People should really be careful how and what they talk about other. Just because it is true of you does not mean that it would be true of other people.

Autism Speaks

In a very smart (in my opinion) decision yesterday the ruling came down that Autism is NOT caused by vaccinations given as children. My eldest sister who is mother to two autistic boys, who I am sure will go on to later rule the world, was interviewed by her local television station on her thoughts about this ruling.

I personally have a real problem with believing that vaccinations are the sole reason, or a major cause of Autism. I question why it is that people have such a hard time believing that it is (again in my opinion) a genetically based issue. There seems to be such a stigma attached to the idea of it being genetically based. People are willing to believe that vaccinations that have been given to millions of people over generations are the cause of the autism, but balk at the idea that it may be caused by a genetic mutation. Right. Really?

It is my hope that with this ruling that people will stop looking for a scape goat and start really focusing on getting to the bottom of the issue, and also focus on providing better services for those who are autistic and the families and people who take care of them.

What did you call me!!!

I am sometimes very troubled by the stupidity of the human race. I am genuinely perplexed at times at some of the idiotic things that are done and the fact that people cannot see that it is stupid or problematic.

Take this for example.

I saw this picture and just about died. I really did. Now here is the thing, when I first looked at the shirt I thought "WTFF!!!! someone actually printed that on a shirt?" It really took me a bit of staring to actually understand that is was about the song, but let me tell you I doubt too many people would have spent as much time as I did trying to figure it out.

I am so going to hell for this statement but I don't really care... you mean to tell me that there were NO Spanish speaking people ANYWHERE in the organisation that picked up on this? NONE... REALLY... NOT ONE SINGLE PERSON!?!?!?!?!? Not even in the sweatshops where they are probably produced!!??!?!?!? (I am kidding... maybe... not)
End sidebar

This is just too much for me... really too much... On the report card of life the House of Deron gets an EPIC FAIL for this bit of foolishness.

How Rude!!

So my friend was telling me about how she was looking for a parking space and came upon a guy who was in his car...taking up 2 parking spaces. So she toots the horn and asks him to pull up a bit so she can park. He won't. She gets out of her car with her cane (should I mention that my friend has a bad hip AND has a handicap tag in her car, AND has to use a cane or crutches right now, AND is getting ready for hip surgery, but I digress) and goes up to his car to ask, nicely if he would please move up instead of taking up two spots. He wouldn't. Seriously. He wouldn't.

In the words of Stephanie Tanner...


What happened to good old fashioned manners and courtesy?

Too often I am on the bus or train and a pregnant woman, or elderly person will get on and nothing happens. NOTHING. No one makes a move. Finally what usually happens is that a woman will get up to let them sit down while all the guys don't even bat an eyelash. Last year I hurt my ankle and had to wear an ankle brace and walk with a cane for a while. My first time having to take the train, a whole row of guys watched me gimp on to the full train and just stared at me. An older lady sitting across from them gave them the side eye then got up to let me sit down. I would see her each morning on the train and she would hold a seat for me. Call me old fashioned if you want, but I think that a real man/gentleman would and should give up their seat for the elderly, someone pregnant, or someone with a physical issue.

How have things changed, and what has happened to make people so apathetic and careless?

I so do wish I knew, and am worried for the future generations who will have no sense of decency and decorum.

Bowl Blogging... My thoughts while watching the game

Thought it would be fun to do this so...

Opening Ceremonies:
Flight 1549 Crew... very cool
Jennifer Hudson... That gurl can SANG

OMG DID YOU SEE THE GI JOE TRAILER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First Quarter:
I like Hines Ward... I really do
I can see why they call him Big Ben... 6'5 240lbs... I wonder how many fights he wins by default of being that size
Way to defend the line Arizona, and good eyes Whizzy.. the knee was down
I wonder what type of conditioner Polamalu uses?

RUN BEN RUN!!! ha ha ha ha ha... good scramble

Mr & Mrs Potato Head commercial *DEAD*

Second Quarter:
Larry Fitzgerald reminds me of one of my cousins. Really. Hmmm, must look into this.
Kurt Warner got skills
Breaston = Beaston? maybe?
Way to use you head Harrison. Literally.

Ok is anyone else somewhat disturbed by the new Chester Cheetah? Seriously. Dude creeps me out.

That was quite a finish. Good game so far by both teams. Should be interesting going into the locker rooms and an even better second half.

Halftime Show:
Well, that's why they call him The Boss.

Third Quarter:
Whizzy has good eyes and a good head on his shoulders. Two for two on the challenges.
Roughing the passer, unnecessary roughness... yeah that kinda sucks for the Cards, great for the Steel Curtain, lets see what they do with a second chance.


Fourth Quarter:
Ok so I am really enjoying the commercials this time around. I have had some real laugh out loud moments. That Mean Joe Greene send up was chuckle worthy.
Fitzgerald has ups, serious ups.
You know in a game where you are allowed to hit people it amazes me how many scuffles ensue. Like seriously have you not gotten to hit enough people yet?
Well damn Pitt... a safety.. ugly man, real ugly. UGLY you ain't got no alibi.
He can jump and he can run, Fitzgerald is a regular multitasker isn't he.

Wrap up:
Whew! what a game! I know there were a lot of people who didn't watch because they figured it would be cake walk for the Steelers, but Arizona showed up and brought their A+ game. Kudos on a job well done. Both teams played well right down to the end. Arizona came in as the underdog and though they did not win the game they showed why and how it is that they came to be there. Kurt Warner is a class act. He is a veteran player who a lot of people counted out when he came to Arizona as a back up quarter back, but in my opinion he acquitted himself quite nicely in this game. The Arizona defense deserves a shout out for holding off the Steel Curtain at some key points in the end zone. You hear so much about the vaunted Steel Curtain, but Arizona showed that there are some bad birds out there in the dessert. Hats off to Pittsburgh for the win, to Arizona for playing four quarters of gut wrenching ball, and to Kurt Warner for being a class act and a very good definition of endurance and perseverance.
