Jun 30 JenV commented on Every Child Deserves a Mother and a Father.
Considering what an awful, awful thing it is for a parent to accidentally kill their child this way, it is doubly apalling to think that someone would take advantage of those poor souls' misfortune and try to disguise a deliberate murder of a child as a similar "accident." What a piece of shit.
Jun 17 JenV commented on The Morning News: Driver Who Parked His Truck Across Two Lanes of I-5 with an Explosive Inside Has Died.
I wonder if this new ISIS organization and the horrors they are committing puts the producers of "Archer" in a bit of a pickle.
Jun 10 JenV commented on Jade Plant, with Grant.
Feel the leaves before you water - if they are nice and hard (i.e. filled with water), you don't need to water it. If the leaves are a little soft, water and then drain the excess. Jades and other succulents are prone to rot if you over-water - I've accidentally killed one that way before.
Jun 9 JenV commented on SL Letter of the Day: Come A Little Closer.
You also didn't tell her to spell it "come" like a grown-up. :| Ugggghhhh at "cum."
May 29 JenV commented on Misogyny Kills Men Too.
@24, I fully agree that boys need help. But I also feel that many of the problems and pressures that boys face are symptoms of a patriarchal society - the other side of the coin to the problems that girls face. You say that the "machine" has been successful up to a point, and I would agree with that, but I also think that the work that is left to do, like getting rid of strict gender stereotypes which harm girls AND boys, would benefit everyone.
May 26 JenV commented on Seattle Musician and Wife Lose Everything After Their Moving Truck Is Stolen.
@24, You could sleep in the cab of the UHaul after you've loaded up, or if you have a mechanically inclined friend you could ask them to do the battery thing for you. Or as another poster suggested, if you have a friend out in the suburbs who will let you park it in their driveway overnight, that would be somewhat safer.
May 20 JenV commented on RuPaul Crowns Bianca Del Rio, BenDeLaCreme Wins Miss Congeniality.
@3, RuPaul and Logo do no such thing. They, or at least whichever asshole runs their Facebook page, posted the identity of the winner last night a good hour before the show even started on the West Coast. So.
May 20 JenV commented on BP Is Trying to Get Out of Paying for the Gulf of Mexico Disaster.
Fuck BP so hard. They should keep paying and paying and paying out the ass until the gulf isn't polluted with oil anymore, which is not going to be for a very long time, if ever. If anyone watched the recent Vice episode about the continued effects of the spill, you'll know that all that oil is still there. They just used a bunch of nasty chemicals to sink it to the bottom where it's still washing up on shore, still killing wildlife, and still making people sick.
May 2 JenV commented on What Was the Last Piece of Music that Gave You the Chills?.
I can't remember the most recent time, but some classics that do it to me every time:

Tchaikovsky, The Nutcracker Pas de Deux
Carlos Santana "Samba Pa Ti"
That key change in Michael Jackson's "Man in the Mirror"
