commented on SL Letter of the Day: Potential Murder, She Wrote
Regardless if this guy is actually going to go through with his fantasies or if, as some have said, they are probably all in his head and he won't act on them - why is she staying with him?
It doesn't sound like they have any common interests; there aren't any kids; he doesn't seem willing to work on his depression.
I understand she may feel guilty leaving him when he has health issues (mental in this case). And it may cost her to support him if they break up. And they have a long history. But she needs to ask the question: Is she better off with or without him? Even without the killing fantasies, it seems the answer is she is better off without him.

#14 - hilarious!
Gia...well, I'm thrilled she's cool with same sex marriage. I do think the younger generation doesn't give a flying frack about it. Even republicans in that generation don't care.
I wish her the best of luck in getting her life together; but this may not be the best time for her to run for office, given all the other stuff going on.
If she runs later, hopefully her experiences allow her, as a republican, to sympathize with the safety net and other programs traditionally panned by republicans.

"You fantasize about falling into a coma and waking up wasted away"
Yes! and when I wake up, a gorgeous doctor is looking down at me, adoring me....
Doesn't have to be a coma; a nice, wasting illness that I totally recover from works...

Thank you, Dan! I read that guy's commentary and all I could think was "what the frack? men are all over the TV screen and movie screen; women are portrayed stereotypically all over the place; and you're complaining about ORANGE?"
He needs to get off his whiny hobbyhorse. Look around. Men are NOT underrepresented in media. We finally get a great show centered around women, and he's bitching because he wants more men. Frack him.
commented on The Daily Show on Google Glasses
I never liked the idea of carrying a phone everywhere so people can get ahold of me any time - yet I'm carrying it.
I don't like the idea of people being able to take pictures this surreptitiously - but of course, hidden cameras (in pens or whatever) have been around for decades.
I agree in a year or two we'll see a lot of these around; I think they won't be Segways. Whether it will be good, bad, or indifferent, guess we'll find out.
commented on We Lost Someone Special During Last Night's Game of Thrones
I knew how the scene was going to end, having read the books. (Yes, the TV show has been changing a lot of things, but pretty sure they wouldn't change that.)
But still heartbreaking to see his arrogance cost him!
Of course, I know what happens to The Mountain (Gregor Cledane) in the books... it ain't pretty.
