With regards to chickenpox- I had it when I was a kid, and it left some small scars on my forehead- I don't think they're as noticeable now that I'm an adult, but as an adolescent, you could see them. When my babysitter took us out in public, she used to point them out to all manner of random people who we stopped to talk to. She would poke her finger at my forehead and say "See these? She had chickenpox as a kid and still has scars, look!"

I was really annoyed at this- seriously, why do random strangers need to have my scars pointed out to them? I didn't dare say anything though, the woman had a hell of a temper. She could be right nice, then get seriously scary.

I have three days to finish my costume, and it's only half done!!!! Time to panic and sing my song of encouragement!

They think that I'm quitting, this fight can't be won.
They think that it's over, it cannot be done. HA!
They think that I'm quitting, no, but I'm not through.
Stop and take a breath, think about what Kipi'd do:
never give up the fight.
Kipi'd keep sewing till it's right, well now it's my turn. My turn!
Make a joyful sound! Agitha is going down!

Scissors in hand, it's my last stand!
Turn the battle around!
Time's running out! It's time to shout:
Agitha is going down!

I can feel a fire burning, I know I can get it done!
And it will be so great, everyone else will be stunned!
I may not have any time to spare, but I know that I will make it there.
It will be close, but I won't be scared.
Will not be scared!!

Scissors in hand, it's my last stand!
Turn the battle around!
Time's running out! It's time to shout:
Agitha is going down!

Scissors in hand, it's my last stand!
Turn the battle around!
Time's running out! It's time to shout:
Agitha is going-
(scissors in hand, it's my last stand)
Agitha is going down!

If you can tell the tune from reading that, you're an awesome person.

So dispite having a day and half off of work for the July 4th holiday my superviosr and HR have managed to single handly piss me off. Yesterday I asked my Superviosr if I could have friday July 13th off for personal reasons. She got back to me saying "You can only take it off if you can find your own coverage" Now I am the front desk receptionist for a large non-profit housing organization so I field every single phone call the comes in through the main line and greet every last person who comes in our door among other things. When ever I am out it is like the world is burning and they will never see tomorrow. You almost have to actually pull teeth to get someone to cover the dman phone. They treat it like it's the hardest job in the place when all you do it "Good Morning "company name" how may I help you today?" Then get their info and direct them on their way.
So while others can take a week off at a time I can barely get one freaking day.
So I emailed my HR looking for some guidence in what to do about coverage and about not having my time given to me. HR of course doens't give me any guidence instead they say "We have no right to intervent in a managers choice in granting time off." Great thats not what I wanted I wanted to know what I should do to get someone to cover even though they will throw a hissy fit about it and stomp their feet like little kids.
HR also goes behind my back and freaking tells my Super I was looking to them to over ride their choice when I wasn't doing that I was looking for guidence!
So my Super calls me and guilts me about going behind her back and that she caters to me more then anyone else and always has my back and that I shouldn't look for answers from someone else. Again I wasn't looking for a different answer, but for guidence on how to get coverage! It's like talking to a freaking wall with these people!
Now their like "Oh you should think about your materinty leave you can only use your vacatime to cover that." Wen I know damn well a co-worker who had her baby at the start of May is still on Maternitiy leave and there is no way she had 2 months of time saved up when I'd seen her go on vacation and take days off before her leave.
GAH!!!!!

I don't know, for me it's always been kinda crappy.

Simpsons was meh, Futurama was meh, King of the Hill was crap --- I watched Archer and I thought it was more obscenity-wanting-to-appear-clever. That screencap feels like more of the same, it doesn't feel like it shows any change in the intended quality of the show.

Maybe I've been lying to myself all this time by focusing on english so much when I don't really like the shows that are made in english :/

I've only seen a few episodes of American Dad, but given the political nature of some of the humour, it's possible that the joke's that the headline's been printed than the headline itself. Just sayin'....

Oh, have you see the trailer for Ted yet? It's basically Stewie, Brian, and Peter all crammed into Rupert. Meg is even in it. Actually, Lois, Joe, and Cleveland are in it too. Family Guy was funny once upon a time, when the Earth was new and it was "edgy"... but now? It's like he's lost the ability to hear critique and he thinks it's okay to keep churning out the same jokes over and over again. Oh wait, I lied.. with song this time. Someone tried to get me to watch the Cleveland Show, which from one episode, appeared to be Family Guy, but with a bear.

I'm glad that people still like his work. I am quite tired of it. And after watching Inside the Actor's Studio with the cast of Family Guy, every time I happen to see an episode, I can't help but be fixated on the fact that the majority of the show is just Seth MacFarlane arguing/ singing with himself.

EDIT- Relevant. Just found this.
