I am really pissed off about this whole DC making Oracle Batgirl again. Maybe it seems a bit silly to get worked up over a comic character, but... Oracle was cool. As someone who's disabled I think it's great that they had a disabled heroine. It just kind of gave me a character I could identify with on that level. I really like that she didn't stop fighting crime after needing to use a wheelchair, no, she went right on and kept kicking ass. And now seeing people from DC talk about the reasoning and other people on why they support DC's change, just hit a nerve. (Thankfully I have also seen a great number of people who think DC made a big mistake, and that they should keep Oracle.) I just, can't believe some people are saying it's good to see Oracle be her "ideal self" or that she can DO so much more as Batgirl. Fuck that. People with disabilities can just do as much as anyone else, they just do things differently. This is the exact reason the only episode of Glee I ever saw pissed me off so much. Because they had some fucking dream sequence where the kid in the wheelchair dreamed of walking again so he could dance (you know, ignoring that there are dance groups made up entirely of people who have to use wheelchairs) and thought how great that would be. I am just tired of the way people with disabilites are usually portrayed in the media. So to all those TV show writers and comic writers who seem to think that all disabled people want is to be "normal": go fuck yourselves. Instead of doing that shit, why don't you write about all the great things people can do while being disabled. WHICH IS WHAT ORACLE DID! And now DC took that character away. And that is bullshit.

So, my sis-in-law just informed me via Facebook that "she thinks she's coming with us today". (dinner and movie with TM's aunt)
Ok.
#1, we didn't invite her.
#2, we haven't solidified plans yet.
#3, via FACEBOOK? For crying out loud, it's free to call me or text me.
Trying not to be pissed about this but I'm tired and I'm pregnant and I've been queasy all day. And it's just RUDE.

I'm sorry honey if I started something.

Also, fuck that bitch. If she cares more about a stupid deer than you she needs to get removed from the friends list.

Oh no! I'm not referring to anyone or anything from this board!

I'm used to her being like that and can ignore it, but not when it keeps getting harped on.

I actually forgot she was over there too. I should know better and just gripe here Smile

But, if she had bothered to read the rest of my rant, it was actually against my husband.

AAAAUUUUGGGHHH! I had resigned myself to doing custodial work over the winter break, since dining services jobs were in short supply and had accepted a 5 a.m. to 1:30 pm slot.
Yesterday, HR called and said they made a "mistake with the numbers" and there wasn't a job for me, other than ones that conflict with my 2nd job.

NOW what am I supposed to do?

I fucking hate Christmas right now. I can't seem to do anything without fucking it up. How much we spend. How many presents we buy. What comes from Santa and what from us. Fuck it. Apparently I don't know how to do any of it right.

I did breathe a little last night before bed and it helped. It also helped that as I'm laying there Rae turns to me and says, "I'm sorry you don't like Christmas, I wish there was something I could do to make it more fun for you." which then started a short but good conversation about what was bothering me (and that her baking is one thing I DO like about Christmas). I'm not quite so pissed, but honestly, the whole stress of present buying is so antithetical to what I want this holiday to be about *sigh*

And that song is funny Smile
