The Further Adventures of Kimberlogic

Tue Apr 22

Boundaries, respect and kindness are important for healthy interpersonal interactions.  When a person consistently demonstrates a lack of those, I step back and my boundaries become harder, firmer.  But sometimes, a person is just relentlessly negative and hurtful and over time as that continues, I lose the ability to give out more chances to that person and my willingness to empathize or try to understand that person’s actions or motivations just dissipates.  The less I deal with that sort of thing, the happier and healthier I am.  

It is sad - and thankfully fairly rare in my life.

Land of the free home of the rich

What really scares me is that they all have significantly cheaper health care AND education, which means Americans not only make they least, they pay the most.

…wait, what?

Bish whet? Fuck America

Also For Australia thats the minimum wage at 15 it goes up every year until you’re 21

Canada has actually gone up to 10.25 some times ago, still though, Australia damn, I guess it makes it worth surviving the heat

Interesting statistics

Pretty sure that’s he minimum wage for people at 21 in Australia, it’s lower if you’re younger.

Yeah, that’s the minimum. Maybe bamboothief was thinking of casual loading? (extra 25% if you work casual rather than part- or full-time)

http://www.fairwork.gov.au/pay/national-minimum-wage/pages/default.aspx Adding in what is an accurate link to these almost right statements.
(And yes, America’s attitude to employmee rights, much like health and education is absolutely nonsensical and this is why “lower middle class” standards if living in Australia are much much higher than in the US. Not that we don’t have our own problems with poverty but yeah. Working poor not nearly as much of a widespread issue, all up.)

Watch it in video

Ok I love this. As a mother people seriously DO NOT understand HOW hard it is. There are NO breaks, NO pay, and your bosses scream in your face, and puke & poo on you constantly. & that bitch laughing at the end… Don’t fucking laugh.. it’s the truth.

Only 4 months in and this is pretty accurate.

It is, however, the job I am happiest to have and it is completely worth it!

Did you think that your feet had been bound
By what gravity brings to the ground?

I cry every time I see this.  And I sing the song to SuperCub a lot.  

The artistry of the closing credits is staggering and awesome.

And this movie is wonderful on so many levels and it makes me doubly happy as a parent.  The themes match my values - love, acceptance, care for each other and the planet, consequences of disregard and reckless consumption, love (yeah, love is a big deal to me and, i believe, a fundamental power in the universe - in thought, word, deed, action, wish …)

texts from Brandon

  • Pippa: How do you get a baby to fall asleep on a space ship?
  • Brandon: Hmmm - do you ... rock-it?
  • Pippa: You put the lid on the ship and close the door and have no lights on! wait, no - your answer is better.

Here’s a fun april fools day prank you can do. Sneak into my room and place thousands of dollars everywhere. Just on everything. Cover my things with an insane amount of money. Make it a real hassle to clean up. The more money the better the prank.
