Vent Alert – shipping Mr Point Five off to the home for sick husbands.

Yesterday I posted this status on my facebook page.   “Two Point Five Kids is of the opinion that sick husbands should be shipped off to a home for sick husbands until they are #8221;   It was a big hit, with one reader suggesting they get sent back to live with their Mothers whilst they recuperate (what an AWESOME idea) and another reader saying she actually rang the hospital and begged them to readmit her husband after minor surgery as he was being such a sook at home.   Now I am not begrudging Mr Point Five getting...

A photo can tell a thousand stories….

Do you remember in English class in school, being given a photo/picture to look at and then having to make up a story as to what happened? To look at a millisecond snapshot and be able to assume the story behind it, with no thread of conversation, no inkling of the surroundings of the photo or the lead-up to its existence? You don’t know the main characters in it, their history, what is being said. You cant even see the expression on the face of one of them. And yet you are asked to tell the story of what...

Ranty Pants post – R Rated; R for profanity and R for Racist.

So, Racism seems to be the PC flavour of the month right now, the bandwagon to be on.  Lets hop on for a ride shall we??  I have a question that has been festering for a while….. Can someone please explain this to me in very small words so I can understand? Above are The Voice judges. You have Seal, Delta, one of the boys from Good Charlotte and Ricky Martin. A black man, a blonde bombshell, a cool rock star and a handsome (gay, but shhhh, lets not call attention to that lest we assume homophobia) crooner.  (And...

Honesty does NOT excuse Bad Behaviour – brought to you wearing my Ranty Pants.

 I was banned from a Facebook Page yesterday for attacking and bullying behaviour. Attack. Now there’s a word. Bullying. Another. Since when did disagreeing politely with a persons PUBLIC opinion become bullying? Since when is calmly saying, hey, I don’t think that was a very nice thing to say, considered attacking? I will not own this and it shits me that someone else has branded me as such. In NO WAY was I a bully or did I personally attack the writer. I just stated that I believed a statement on the page by the owner wasn’t a helpful or positive remark and although it may...

If it weren’t Chrissie Swan…..

WARNING: Ranty Pants on!  If it weren’t Chrissie Swan, and just some other pregnant woman, hiding in her car, poisoning her unborn child, we wouldn’t be talking about it, wouldn’t even have rated a photo. But it was, and it has. We should all just walk on past and be silent in our judgement as what she does on a personal level is none of our business. But we haven’t and for the life of me I do cannot fathom why all the “cool” bloggers are leaping to her defence, be so accommodating and understanding?  Saying, poor woman, leave her alone, she is still a ...

Nowhere for me and my anger.

Edvard Munch “The Scream”, 1902  I am angry and I have nowhere to vent my anger. I find I am taking it out on my family when I should be rejoicing that they are alive and with me. My patience is at an all time low – I am yelling at my children for no good reason whatsoever, things that they cant help, and I think I am just about ready to snap. I need to get it out, cleanse my system of this wretched angst. I wish I was an American. I wish I could take all my pent up...

Radio Pranks Calls – WARNING: ranty pants on!

 You know what totally shits me? Prank phone calls on the radio. How old are we?  12??  Do we STILL think its funny to mess with peoples emotions and feelings in a negative and hurtful way? I live in a tiny country town and we only get one radio station with “modern”” music (unless you count triple J and I don’t.) Every morning as I am taking G Man to school they have this segment where they think its totally hilarious to call some poor unassuming person and play a practical “joke” on them. I use the word joke fairly loosely...
