-watches the exchange above with amusement-

Sent teacher a question last friday night on how to fix an error with the program we're using to do some homework. Lo and behold, he hasn't replied. Now the school's vista site isn't running, soooo... yep. Gunna finish it the best I can and just move on with my day. There goes my rising grade in the class.

I'm at 60 of 70 in my plant collection for biology class... Very happy. Means I don't have to go on the weekened trip. Though, they did switch it from the desert to the coast... much more tempting now...

I don't like the frozen hot chocolate. Way too sweet.

I planned to go bed at a decent time... Instead I have been talking about the unfairness that Ianto died in Torchwood with a friend. So not productive.

Uncomfortable Shrine To The Dead
by ADMIN on APRIL 23, 2012
So my story is actually “what am I supposed to say/do” question, I am writing on behalf of my mother.

My mother has a work friend who I will call Jane for the sake of this story. A few years ago Jane gave birth to a stillborn baby boy, and she and her husband were quite obviously very upset about this (who wouldn’t be?). My mom has been to Jane’s house a few times since the birth (but she hasn’t been in a long time now). Basically Jane and her husband have a shrine to their son in their living room consisting of a few large poster sized photos of the baby; the baby was stillborn, so they are basically large posters of a dead purple baby. The shrine consists of things like his first outfit and hospital tags, those things are quite sweet. Jane also has a photo album which she shares with guests when they come over which holds photos of family members holding the dead baby, and more photos of the baby. Every year as well, Jane and her husband throw a birthday party for the baby.

Now, I just want to say, that I do not begrudge Jane and her husband for the way they grieve, nor do I want to question their etiquette, they suffered a great trauma and I respect their feelings. The problem is, is that it makes my mother and the friends that she has spoken to very uncomfortable. The photos of the dead baby, the parties for the dead baby, the shrine, the album, it makes my mom feel really uncomfortable and she never knows what to say, she avoids going to Jane’s because she doesn’t want to have to see the many photos of the baby on the walls.

So what should my mom do? Does she keep making excuses and finding reasons not to go there?

Does she just suck it up and go there anyway? IS there a polite way to tell Jane that she is uncomfortable? It’s such a tender topic, that we both have no idea what she should do?

Have any readers ever experienced something like this? 0415-12

JFC >< my eyebrows are so goddamn dark its incredibly hard to cover them for recoloring.

No one should lose a child, but sweet monkey jesus get over it.

They sound like the kind of people that think Pet Cemetery is a neat idea.

I think they need some kind of grief counciling..
Almost 1 am. Still not in bed. Still discussing Torchwood.

Speaking from experience with my Mom, having another kid seems like the best cure so you can forget about/get over that one... (I'm TECHNICALLY an only child; Mom had a stillborn before me.)

It's a vicious cycle too, if they got rid of the "shrine" and stuff they would be able to move on, but no, they keep it around which keeps them perpetually depressed.

All I have to say is, Emmers? Where the hell do get these weird and disturbing stories...?
