Hey! I haven't told you my "Cracka" theory yet have I?



See, I have a problem with the N-word.

'Some' people of African-American descent find it perfectly within their rights to use the N-word, so long as it has an A on the end of it. They don't feel that it is derogatory at all for them to use it, but it is still derogatory for a Caucasian to use it.

Well, now since I am a visible Caucasian, (although I am Native) I have come up with my own word for us Caucasians.
Cracka.
So now I can walk around and say "Hey my Cracka! What's up my Cracka?" to other Caucasians, and it isn't derogatory.
Stupid I know. :D

Hello!

I have a question and need advice.  ;D A friend of mine keeps asking me to enter another beauty pageant. It's been about 2 years since I competed (I think) I'm an expierienced competitor and usually win SOMETHING when I compete, but I don't know. I'm more into my writing, though I do design some pageant clothing.

What do you think I should do?

I think you should follow your soul... deep inside you know what you want and the truth is if, deep down you wanted to compete then your heart wouldn't even question the idea...

Now having said that... I think you can write and compete really  because you can write almost anywhere- however, some characters are dying to come out so if they are tugging at you right now (which- from your recent posts) it sounds like they might be screaming so loud the only way to quiet them right now is to bring them to life... if your characters are that active then you must choose to write because the characters  need to be given life sooner rather than later...


just in case the message was lost in all that zen crap that just came out (true tho it may be)

my advice is to WRITE, WRITE, WRITE...

Mountain Dew...lots and lots of Mountain Dew.  ;D  there is no ailment the dew can't cure!


okay - the serious answer but you won't like it...is start moving. ITs gonna be hard anyway because you're so over extended with caring for the mom....which is also probably contributing to your lack of energy.

The truth is I was there last summer and once I started moving (I had to force myself to do it tho) I found energy. 

of course you have all that snow to contend with...and to be honest anyone would be lucky if I moved my ass from the bed to the crapper in that kind of weather so pay no attention to me...

Hi Snoz!

I was wondering if I could get your advice on a problem I’m having with a friend of mine. Let’s call her Lacy. Anyway, for the last year, I’ve been basically watching this girl put herself in a bunch of precarious and dangerous situations without any concern for well being. It all started when she began dating this White guy named Wesley. And  Wesley seemed like a nice guy and all. He and Lacy worked at the same store. The girl was over the moon for the guy. Eventually, she moved in with him. That’s when the problem’s began. After a few months, Lacy and Wesley got evicted from their home and had to move in Wesley’s mom. The problem was, Lacy is bi-racial (half Black, half White) and Wesley’s mom lives in a town in Texas that is renowned for being one that didn’t take kindly to Black people. (It’s so bad that I’ve never been there for being too scared and my other Black friends are scared to go there.) For a while, it seemed like things were going well, and then Lacy lost her job at the store. And because she and Wesley couldn’t keep up with the rent for his mom, they moved in with some more people, all White because less than ten people in the town are of color.
The new people they were with were mean to Lacy, and Wesley never did take up for her. One day the people made her cry, and he didn’t even take up for her. And it seems like he just didn’t care.
She told me he would go and get food and not give her anything, so she’d be hungry.
And at the same time, Lacy has what I think is a problem with alcohol. She would go out and party all night--on Wesley’s dime no less--and be drunk all the time. She even got to the point where she was blacking out and not remembering anything. She said one time that she had been dancing the other people had been throwing money at her, and that she didn’t remember a bit of it.
She almost got into a car accident coming from New Orleans after partying at a club there. Not to mention the other people she was with left her when they had a problem with her ID to get in. She was left alone outside the club for like an hour until the problem was fixed.
And now here’s the real granddaddy problem. She and Wesley are on the verge of breaking up. I mean really. And the thing is Lacy had started talking to this boy in Mississippi over Face Book and she’s planning to go to Mississippi ALONE, to meet this boy who nobody ever heard of.
And now she’s like so in “love” with this strange boy, that no one can seem to talk her out of it. And the craziest thing of it is, even her own mother doesn’t seem to care and actually encouraged her to go. (My mom would have kicked my booty!)
Lacy can’t go and stay with her parents if she did break up with Wesley, because they don’t have a home--it got ruined in a fire--and they’re living in their neighbor’s tiny house.
Wesley isn’t trying to stop her. Last night she told me he told her that if she left, to not come back.
I’m so scared Snoz. You see everyday on Nancy Dis-Grace and all those shows about people meeting people off the computer and getting killed. Just yesterday I heard about a little cheerleader that was kidnapped and charred beyond recognition. And she had also met her killer of off Face Book! I’m just afraid that my friend will get herself raped or murdered or something.
I don’t know what to do. It seems lately every wrong decision that could be made as far as her life goes, she has made it.
And she’s so damned hard headed, she won’t listen to me. She leaves for MS on the ninth of next month.
Please help me Snoz, because I don’t know what to do. I’m within an inch of calling the people from Intervention for help.

Thank you! And I’m sorry is my post is really long, I just had to explain everything.

Tiffeny

Okay... here's the truth...and you know me I call them like I see them. 

It's sad but your friend is a lost cause. She is dealing with something so deep she probably isn't even aware of it...

You say you're worried about her going to Mississippi because you think she might get raped or killed by this guy you don't know. It's a scary thought for sure but honestly- based on what you told me I think something pretty terrible has probably already happened to her... here's why I say that.

1) she drinks till she blacks out, this is never good... truth is something could've happened and she knows intuitively but doesn't fully remember

2) if her parents don't care about her welfare there's something going on there... more than just the stress of losing a house to a fire

3) she has absolutely no self respect for herself. She was with that loser Wesley because, maybe she thought she couldn't do any better and now here's this other guy paying attention to her so she is going where the attention is.... remember some people just crave attention and negative attention is better (to them) than no attention at all.


so you are going to worry about your friend but it's important you accept the fact that you cannot fix her... it won't be until she hits rock bottom that she'll be ready to try and resurface as some distant shadow of her former self. 

You have to just let her know that you love her and worry for her and will be there whenever she needs....

or you have to go the tough love route and tell her you love her too much to watch her destruct.  I can't tell you which to do, you have to do what's right to you.

you can try to get the folks on intervention to help but that's such a long shot- especially in the short time frame you have.
you could go to an alcohol counseling center for help and see if they can help you stage your own intervention... it probably won't work but it's always worth a try.

I wish you luck in whatever you decide to do none of the choices are easy nor are they all that favorable but, honestly, it's her life and she's going to live it how she wants to live it....

Hi Snoz!

Thank you for your input. Everything you said is exactly what I was thinking.  My friend has had her share of problems in the past. While I can’t divulge all of her details, I can say that she and her little brother were abused for an extended period of time by a relative. And she’s destroying herself, her brother, whom I haven’t seen in like years is supposedly also destroying himself. My friend has told me things and it literally is like a lifetime movie it is just unreal how bad things are in her family. Like I came from a place with parents who supported me in most of the things I did and tried to guide me down the right path, and all the things a person thinks that a family would do for their kid and my friend just never really did have that.
I just feel really bad, because while I know a person upbringing shapes them, it shouldn’t define them. And she shouldn’t be trying to escape by plunging herself into dangerous situations. It just doesn’t seem right. Like everyone in our circle of friends are ambitious bright people who are else in college or working jobs and should be a positive influence.
But I do think that you’re right, I am going to have to step back and let her splat on rock bottom. I hate to do so, but I just know I can’t physically pick her up and put her some place safe. I mean I can’t get through to her, none of us can, her mother is just like completely despondent. My friends and I will try one last time, on the 6th when we see her to try to help and it can go one of two of ways, it could be like she listens to us, see we care and cancel the trip or completely ape sheesh on us and still leave.
I am just tired, because I have my own troubles and things with my dialysis and other things, and I’m just trying to do what I feel is right and what’s good.

But I do thank you for your time and input.
I'll let you know how it all turns out.

Otherwise....no  ;D

What do you think about collecting unemployment? ???

If you have to go on unemployment because the store you work at is closing then that's totally acceptable. They've taken money out of your check for such things so no big deal... but- you should be actively looking for work.  If you sit back and wait for your job coach to find you a job at another pathmark then you are not doing what you are supposed to be doing.  you need to ask you job coach what other options are out there for you instead of putting all your eggs in one basket.  I hate people who sit back and wait for stuff to happen for them... you need to get out and do what you need to do.

I don't know what they are Howard. When I pushed carts we didn't have them... I think the best advice I can give you is make sure you point them in the right direction and remember that red is for lock and green is for unlock.

It's a small device that looks like a small remote control and you have to point it at the wheels to make it unstick.
