What the….?

Preface:  I wrote this when I was upset and riding high on the waves of postpartum depression.  I'm ok with Snedeker now.

Yeah, once again NEPA has made national news headlines for something negative. I submit for your reading pleasure:  this. First of all, let me just say that Joe Snedeker doesn't necessarily reflect the views of this valley. Now that I am a mother, to a child of similar age as Kim Supon's I will say this. I have had to take off more time than expected to. Being a working Mother, and having to put my daughter in daycare….she picks up a lot of diseases that have run rampant throughout my entire family (and extended family too). It is quite easy for any MAN who's wife stays home 24×7 to take care of their children to talk out his ass about taking too many days off. I'm sure if him and his wife both worked full time and had to rely on daycare or any child care provider that he would not be saying what he said. I wish I was on the air that day, I swear to god that I would make him regret those words and cry like the little boy he really is. I mean its one thing to joke around, but there is a fine line and he crossed it that day. I have just lost a little more respect for the man, not as if drawing toilet bowls on the weather map during dinner time wasn't bad enough……. Yeah, toilet bowls.

Welcome to Wilkes-Barre

Often times, friends and I will bounce things we spot in the police blotter off each other.  Kind of in a "did I just read that?" type of manner.

spacewrangler570: Kenneth King told police that he was awakened by an unknown suspect tapping on the window of his South River Street home on Wednesday at about 3:10 a.m. When King confronted the suspect, he said, "Oh sorry" and fled.

spacewrangler570: LOL

MissAhart99: wtf?

Reasons why we need the Downtown Canopy back, by Michelle A. Davies:

  • Look outside
  • All of the Bums/Rednecks/Freaks/Carny, etc are hanging out in front of Store Fronts/Shops that have overhangs

It's also never a good sign to see water coming up from storm grates. Usually, you'd like to see the water going into them, not coming out of them.  Hey Noah, get your ark ready.

I love a parade

By M Davies   /     Oct 02, 2005  /     The Pre-Dooce File  /     0 Comment

Not many people can say that they were in a parade twice in one year. This past Friday, after stopping at the supermarket I caught the tail wind of a parade happening on my street. I don't really know why it was happening…it was likely something for Hanover Area HS Football, but I was on the tail end of the parade. Gabby was with me. It was pretty loud and obnoxious. Lee Park is the breeding ground for parades that no one ever knows about until they happen. Anyway. I start school on Tuesday night. Yeee haw. I guess I should crack down and actually do my homework now.
