This is the kind of stuff Arthur has to deal with now
Oh hey so I finally talked to the library director last week about the Evil Storytime Lady. He heard me out and seemed genuinely concerned. He said that this wasn’t the first time someone has complained about her and that he had talked to her about it before. Obviously it made no difference.
I really just think “community outreach” is the wrong position for her. She has zero people skills.
So, we’ll see if he does anything.
Yesterday I ran into one of the other women who I was talking to when ESL screamed at us for being too loud awhile back. I hadnt seen her since because, surprise suprise, she never went back to the library after that day. This woman doesn’t have a car and the library is within walking distance of her house so it’s a serious shame that she doesn’t feel comfortable going there with her son any more.
I really hope the director does something about her. At least don’t have her do Storytime any more. She’s just terrible.
You read all these articles about the brain and they go on and on about how complex and adaptable and amazing the brain is but then you realize that all those articles are written by brains so of course they’re going to be totally biased towards themselves.
Gunn’s performance was not that of an action heroine or a television genius, and it was not meant to be. Skyler carries the weight of Walt’s actions. Plenty of people hated her for it, Walt sometimes included. But Gunn’s performance pushed both Walt and the people who wanted to see him as a hero to increasingly contrived and ludicrous justifications for treating Skyler like she was a worse person than Walt.
Gunn’s drawn face in the last two seasons of “Breaking Bad” might not have brought about the end of the anti-hero era in television. But Gunn’s performance marked the end of a time when the creators of such shows could get away with writing anti-heroes’ wives as flat, cartoonish characters, or when audiences could get away with worshiping difficult men without encountering strong opposition.
Just made my first call to poison control. Woo!
Max ate a glob of detergent out of the compartment in the dishwasher door.
I looked at the box and it said to call poison control immediately if ingested. Yikes. So, I called and they said he might puke but will probably be fine. They said to just give him some water or milk and keep an eye on him. Evidently a lot of toddlers do this exact thing.
Fingers crossed for no puking! He seems 100% fine so far.
