<quoted text>How did your weekend go? You have said a lot about your friend, but not much about you. Are the dogs moping?
Thanks for asking.
:)

The dogs are doing better than I thought, and Jasper and I are both doing worse. Eh... that's a harsh way of putting it. We're each having a harder time than we thought. We're talking every day and I'm sure he'll visit at some point within the next several weeks.

I spent a lot of time home with the dogs this weekend and I think that helps. I was home on Friday night, out for most of the Gator game on Saturday afternoon, then home all evening. My friend L came over on Saturday night to hang out and watch Miami-Notre Dame, and she loves dogs so the dogs got both our attention all night. I went to church yesterday morning but I was home all afternoon & evening. I was supposed to go to another friend's house for the Eagles-Steelers game but I cancelled... I was super tired from not sleeping much on Saturday night, and then I got an email from work and had a quick little project to do anyway.

I believe I read once that Parcells knew Taylor was doing blow, but turned a blind eye. Your comparing apples to oranges, screwing a 16yr old is not akin to killing dogs.

If I have to split hairs with you, I would say this.
I dont think the Giants should knowingly hire someone who does coke, but in the end, he is only hurting himself, he is not stomping on puppies. So if he can play, letem.

But I dont think the Giants should knowingly hire someone who gleefully stomped puppies to death, and ran a dog fighting ring.
If they did, then they lose me as a fan.

How do you feel about Lawrence Taylor? He's had quite a few run ins with the law since his playing days. DO you think he was not doing any of those things during his playing days? Sexual miscondict with a 16 year old? How bout Dave Meggett? What's he in jail for? 30 years for rape? Is it your position that, as far as the Giants organization knew, those players were not committing heinious crimes while they were players and then started only after they retired?
The same way you can speculate that Vick might make a side bet thru a friend, I speculate that the Giants(and every other NFL organization) care more about wins than the character of their players. Character is a "nice to have", but not required. Ben Rothlisberger. Accused of rape. Think the Steelers would have suspended him if the NFL didn't? I don't. Nor do I think the Giants would have.

On Sunday afternoon, I fell asleep on the couch watching football. When I woke up, for a second I thought everything that has happened with Jasper moving was a dream. THAT sucked, but the rest of my weekend was pretty good, considering.

I know someone who is an Ohio State fan. No longer lives around here. I would never here from him until right around football season. Then he would lay down a little smack. After getting their asses whupped by UF, he had a particular disdain for Urban Meyer(and all things Florida in general - the state, not the school). Then rumors began to swirl about Urban Meyer as a candidate for the head coach job. On the morning that it was announced that Urban Meyer was the new head coach, I sent him an email asking what he thought about Urban being his new coach. He apparently thought I was referring to the rumors and responded something like OSU would never hire that "scumbag" and if they did, that would be the last day he watched Buckeye football. I told him he might wanna jump online and read a paper.

Have not heard back since. I still wonder if he gave up his Buckeyes that day.

OMG! I am watching hoarders. Quite possibly the most disgusting one I've ever seen. This woman has wall to wall filth. Toilet does not work. She poops in a bucket. Before that, she used to put poop and pee in like gatorade bottles. There are dozens, maybe hundreds of seaped bottles filled with liquid shit. When her bucket is full, she uses a mug to transfer it to a smaller bucket that she can manage to carry outside. She just empties it right in the front yard. She showed the cleaner dude one of her poop bickets stained with residue and dry poop and he asked about her handwashing practices. She doesn't.
Cleaner said its the worst place he's evet been. Stinks to high heaven. Poop bottles everywhere. open buckets. Puddles of it outside.

Wow. The cleaner said this is undoubtedly the worst ever. They brought the hazmat team out. I counted no less than 17 trash cans that they filled with bottles of poop and piss. He said that each can had about a hundred gallons. They had to open each bottle and por it into some neutralizing agent(loked like a portapotty). Everything in the house is contamonated. she was complaoning that they wanted to throw away her food. unopened container of salad...that had never been refridgerated. unopened bag of bread...covered on mold. she intended to just pick ghe mold off.

So my friend A came over to hang out and watch some of Monday Night Football, she just left.

On Saturday night, she was with her boyfriend and a guy she used to date texted her. It was pretty out of the blue because they would only ever exchange "hi, how are you" every few months or so. He said a bunch of stuff about wanting her back, etc. and her boyfriend had already made it clear that whenever she receives a text, he wants to know who it is and all that. So she showed him the text and her boyfriend ended up in a text conversation with this guy for an hour, taking screen shots and emailing them to himself, and then he deleted the conversation so she doesn't know what was said. THEN he made her log into Facebook and block this guy - they weren't even friends anymore but this prevents him from being able to contact her. I almost shit my pants, this sounded so scary. What should I do? For real? My friend S had a friend who had a controlling boyfriend and he ended up murdering her.

She needs to DTMFA. Any BS after and she should get and use a restraining order.

He wants to control who's texting her? And control who her friends are? WTF? She needs to run away in the other direction.

Wow. Is there something wrong with her? Does she have a self-esteem issue? It just seems so over the top to relinquish so much control so quickly and willingly.

Take her out.

Get her drunk.
Text the bs bf and his best friend if you know her number with pictures and audio.

Check teh local court records to see if this guy ever had a restraining order taken out against him
Contact the old bf yourself and let him know a rescue or sanctuary might be needed.

I know, you guys, I know... She needs to run, but I can't come out and tell her that or I'll lose her trust. And the last thing she needs is to feel abandoned by her friends.

Pelly, it has crossed my mind to set up a situation to force his hand and get him to end things. That sounds so horrible, but better to be dumped than beat up - or worse.

She brought me a really sweet card tonight, about life changes and friendship and love and support. She's such a caring person... she deserves someone who will treat her accordingly. My heart breaks for her.
