thisbakerisonfire: I just realized that the guys that created Babblr are from Fullerton, CA. I could literally walk to their building and ask them personally when the hell Babblr is going to be back up and running.

WT #1 - Normal
One of the ACoA traits that stands out to me the most is “Adult children of alcoholics guess at what normal behavior is.” Yeah… yeah, that’s a pretty clean and tidy way to say it. I hadn’t thought of it that way. Before seeing it described so simply, it was to me more like wondering what “normal” is supposed to be precisely, why it looks as it does, and...
I am becoming really, really addicted to sushi. At this time last year, I had never eaten sushi and wanted nothing to do with the stuff. Last night I popped little packages of rice and crab into my mouth as if they were sweet, sweet chocolate kisses. Eating sushi is an odd skill to learn. You’re supposed to eat each piece in one bite, which can make quite a mouthful and goes against...

lithium98: trans-lucence: visualoop: Via lol dont let anyone know! The only thing I took away from this is the realization that people still listen to the radio. Yeah, I’m not sure what they mean by “radio listeners”. I don’t even own a radio. I just use apps on my phone, such as TuneIn and iHeart, when I want mindless streaming.
The #acoa tag is a very interesting stream. It doesn’t seem to be a terribly busy one, but that just may mean that Adult Children of Alcoholics blog elsewhere, or are busy not blogging at all about that particular thing. [[MORE]] I’ve been practicing art therapy by myself, and am considering writing therapy as well. I shouldn’t commit myself. It makes me feel too crummy and...
acasupport: I can’t speak for all of you, but when I read the laundry list for the first time. I had a sense of clarity that hey, maybe I’m not insane for feeling this way. Yup. It felt weird to see so many of my traits just laid out; it was similar to seeing a photograph of me that I didn’t know anyone had taken.

theerrorbar: I dont know, something about it seems a little fishy. They made a chat for tumblr and promised a free download to anyone who signed up early. Surly they knew the limit of the servers and should have limited the number of downloads, but for some reason they didn’t. They shut the servers down early and now their asking for donations… >.> Worst part is, no one knows how it...

"Why Do People Blame the Gun?"
“You’re smarter than this,” is what I would tell a friend on Facebook if I were into having political fights on Facebook. It’s just that this friend posted a graphic that said something like: “When there’s a bombing, people blame the bomber. When there’s a drunk-driving incident, people blame the driver. So when there’s a shooting, why do people blame the gun?” Because bombs and drunk driving...

In my area there is a wind advisory and a flood warning and a flash flood watch and a tornado watch and it’s getting dark and cloudy outside. I think I’ll walk to the library anyway.

The purpose of “itcouldhappentoallof.us” was never intended to spread fear or promote terrorism, but rather to create awareness to all forms of potential disasters; including natural, economic, pandemic, etc… The message was intended to be that truthfully, we never know what could happen next, ie: it could happen to all of us. Our goal, at Blan-Kits Family Defense was and still is to “Prepare...
