So it's a bit like dressing up for a dance in junior high, thinking that if people see you looking different then they will suddenly realize the treasure they had in their midst the whole time without seeing it.
I am proud to announce the launch of I Am Jack's Raging Mommy on it's new, "real" webpage. Flippy and Leigh-Ann have provided me with free hosting, and my ex is paying for the domain name. (He's so my bitch)
So change all your blogrolls, and links (and button codes) over to the new url at http://www.jacksragingmommy.com . It'll be easy enough to do, just drop the .blogspot from your existing link.
I'm still working on figuring out Word Press coding and themes and all that craziness, which you'll be able to tell as soon as you look at my links page.
Existing comments from this site didn't transfer over, so show me some love so I don't feel so lonely over there :)
What is it good for?
I was watching the footage of the Marines evacuating US citizens right now, and they were saying the White House wants to send troops in.
What troops? We barely have what they want for Iraq! Are they going to move the troops over? That isn't what they signed on to fight. People have already been told that their terms are indefinite and now they is an entirely different war they are supposed to fight?
If they don't do that are they just going to start drafting people? I personally will start a convoy to Canada if it comes to that.
What people often don't realize (The following is an opinion/theory of mine. You may disagree or be pissed off. Sorry about that) is that we "won" WWI and WWII because we went in after they'd already been going for a while and we had fresh supplies and troops. We are already stretched thin on those things due to Iraq. We'd be highly ineffectual and run a huge risk of making things worse for our own country. We can't even provide armor for the troops already in action. What are we supposed to use for any troops we might send to Lebanon?
Then there's the question of why are people like Newt Gingrich so fucking eager for this to turn into WWIII? I feel like he's a Japanese Schoolgirl at an N*Sync concert he seems so gleeful about all this. He wants President Bush to officially declare it. Perhaps Newt will change his stance on female combatants. There aren't any jungle swamps for the women to be in for over thirty days so the hygiene problems shouldn't arise. God I despise that man. I have ever since I lived in Georgia, long before he became speaker of the house under Clinton.
The whole thing is making me sick. I've honestly been terrified for Jack for the last few days. What kind of world did I bring him into? He's only a baby! I have no idea what kind of future he'll have and that scares me. I've been seriously contemplating Canada for while now. If they do chose to reinstate the draft I may just do it. Hey Jen? Do you know the rules for becoming a citizen?
I know that I am likely overreacting, on 9/11 one of my first reactions was "Oh my God! We just saw WWIII start".
I desperately want to be wrong.

Sweet Dreamscapes. (My puns suck. I am not Joel Siegel)
Just a short note to say that I am immensely diggning Nightmares and Dreamscapes . I am a huge fan of Stephen King but the movie adaptations are usually crap. (Excepting Brian De Palma's Carrie, and Kubrick's The Shining. )
So I didn't really have high expectaions, but I had very high hopes. Luckily it's great and I'm in heaven. With Nightmares. So many bad puns.
Should have my news for you soon. Free JRM Loves Me button for anyone who can guess it. Flippy doesn't get to play since she already has a button and already knows my news. Have fun playing!

Very big (for me) very cool (again, for me) news coming soon here at Jack's Raging Mommy.

I saw a preview for a fall series (Vanished) on Fox a little bit ago (I am watching Hell's Kitchen ) and I was thinking "Who is that guy? It's not Mal, but it looks kind of like him. I know who this is! Man! This is bugging me."
So I looked him up...
It's Gale Harold, formerly my man Brian on Queer As Folk.
Totally messed with my head. Not something I expected to see him doing, but I am really excited now, almost as much as if it had been Nathan Fillion.

I've decided to not sit on my ass crying any more, and to dispense with the confessions.
My goal for this is that every Sunday I will confess something I am usually too ashamed to talk about, or that I haven't gotten around to yet, or whatever.
I've been depressed the last few days (this isn't the confession) and I wasn't going to do this, because I didn't feel like posting if I couldn't talk about something real. Then I said, Fuck It. I can talk about something real without it being something that makes me weep, and I'm sick of being a prisoner to my computer anyway.
So TAH DAH!
My very first confession. I hope you like it.
My name is Maleah.
Despite what you may read on the internet, Maleah is an Americanized spelling of the Hawaiian name Malia (or Melia- I've seen both), which means Mary.
Back in the day Bing Crosby's brother Bob had a dance band and his daughter, Maleah June, was the singer. (Oddly enough I was also born in June)
My grandmother loved the name, but her first husband wouldn't let her use it, which is why I have an Aunt Marlene.
She told my mother the name and voila! I am Maleah.
I was almost Maleah Wave, but that is another story entirely.
So now you know, and you prolly understand a little better why at first I chose not to use my name. When paired with my last name (maiden or married) I am the only one. Which is really cool when you think about it.
