My thoughts while watching Outlander episode 207 “Faith”


  1. I will not cry. I will not cry.  I will not cry.
  2. Brianna should sound more American, not British.  Or is that a snooty 1950s Boston aristocrat accent a la Charles Emerson Winchester III (M*A*S*H)?

  11. Yay! The blue aura = Madonna explanation.
  12. Cat with 9 lives.  Cat o’ 9 tails.  What he whipped Jamie with.  Reference.
  13. I know Claire’s going thru hell, but I’m still mad at her for being so pissed at Jamie. If only you knew what that monster did, Claire!
  14. Oh, Fergus, you sweet boy, acting as protector, as Jamie’s proxy.
  15. Suck it up, Suzette. Take a cue from Magnus.
  16. I need a Fergus. (To go with the Murtagh that I also need.)
  17. How emotionally draining was this on Cait? OMG
  18. A child to comfort. Fergus you are so well placed.
  19. Tell her, Fergus! I know it’s not how the book goes.
  20. A talent for stealing. Lol
  21. My stomach just flipped over.
  22. Don’t show it. Please don’t show it.
  23. Jamie to the rescue!
  24. Go, Jamie, go! Kill!  Kill!  Kill!

  37. Nice room. You’re still icky.
  38. Claire’s thought bubble: A witch trial again? Wtf, 18th century?  W.T.F.
  39. Comte doesn’t look smug for a change. I like it.
  40. I’m sorry I tried to kill you.  Twice.  Please spare my life.  Oh, goddamit.
  41. Oh, Claire. You must be loving this.
  42. Thank you, Jamie, for making me La Dame Blanche. Power!
  43. Oh, hey, wait. The comte speaks English.
  44. King hands!
  45. Comte no likey snakes.
  46. Forez’s face is perfect! Lol  He looks like Little Steven (VanZandt) as Silvio in The Sopranos.  Always scowling.
  47. Be not afraid, Raymond. You know it’s gonna suck but you won’t die.
  48. Love, love, love that she gave it to Raymond first so the comte could watch.
  49. How did it change color?!
  50. Oh, Raymond. Very nice.
  51. “Oh well.” That’s all you can come up with?
  52. Good acting, Comte. Love the tears.
  53. King Louis thought bubble: Please do not soil The King’s floor as you expire, Comte.

  57. Death arouses The King.
  58. The King is a 3 pump chump. Lol
  59. Claire’s thought bubble: OK. That wasn’t too bad.  Quick and easy.
  60. King hands say: I’m done. You may go now.
  61. Alrighty then. I’ll just take my orange because I don’t want to get scurvy, and leave.
  62. Jamie’s home!
  63. Jamie needs a bath and a laundress.
  64. Black mourning gown?
  65. Jamie sounded 100 years old just now. Like he hadn’t spoken at all in the Bastille.
  66. Holy raggedy beard, Batman!
  67. Sorry.  You’ve been through a lot but you must see why Jamie fought BJR.  Forgive, eh?
  68. Shouldn’t Faith be smaller? I thought she was only 20-something weeks.
  69. Her eyes were slanted a bit, like yours. In the book.
  70. I think if I was going to cry, it would be now. I’m not.  I’m safe.
  71. Hey, Louise. What’s shakin’?
  72. The shallow bitch does indeed have a heart and is a good friend.
  73. No, you can’t put your filthy, shallow, Prince-fucking, whore hands on my precious angel.
  74. Oh, I see the red hair! Awww!
  75. I love that Louise and Mother handled her like a live baby. Very nice.
  76. Again, Cait. You are a gem.  Such acting.
  77. Jamie looks thin.
  78. Um, Claire, you know the duel didn’t cause your miscarriage, right?
  79. It’s not your fault either, Claire.
  80. The forgiveness line from the creek again!
  81. You told him about the king.  Flat out.  Like that.  You’re a cold bitch.
  82. Claire, honey. Nice, clean 3 pump chump is nothing compared to what Jamie endured for you.
  83. Together.
  84. Yeah, Claire. People didn’t get divorced in 1740-something.
  85. Yay! Home to Scotland!  Totally worth fucking the king.
  86. But you can’t have 11 apostle spoons! You’ve messed up the set!
  87. Still no tears from me. Either I’m a cold-hearted bitch or you’re all wusses.


Next week…

  1. Oh, hey, Jenny.
  2. Now my grandpa wants to fuck my wife.  WTF, people?  I know she’s hot but come on already!


The PARCC Test: Exposed

Outrage on the Page

The author of this blog posting is a public school teacher who will remain anonymous.

I will not reveal my district or my role due to the intense legal ramifications for exercising my Constitutional First Amendment rights in a public forum. I was compelled to sign a security form that stated I would not be “Revealing or discussing passages or test items with anyone, including students and school staff, through verbal exchange, email, social media, or any other form of communication” as this would be considered a “Security Breach.” In response to this demand, I can only ask—whom are we protecting?

There are layers of not-so-subtle issues that need to be aired as a result of national and state testing policies that are dominating children’s lives in America. As any well prepared educator knows, curriculum planning and teaching requires knowing how you will assess your students and planning backwards from…

NJWeedman’s Joint Raided: NJWeedman Arrested With ‘Joint Boys’



raid 3 Trenton crowd witnesses police raid on “NJWeedman’s Joint” and “Liberty Bell Temple III” on Wednesday, April 27, 2016. Photo from

NJWeedman opened “NJWeedman’s Joint” on June 15, 2015.  His smile became contagious on opening day as he stared directly across the street at City Hall and welcomed every type of customer who entered – locals, fans, medical marijuana patients and City Hall employees. He had so much faith in the “Joint“, despite opening up shop in the deserted end of State Street, with both sides of his restaurant touching vacant, run-down buildings.  NJWeedman’s fame and appeal, however, actually made it possible for a viable business to run smoothly in the poor Trenton area.  A “joint resolution” was signed by state Sen. Shirley Turner, Assemblyman Reed Gusciora and Assemblywoman Liz Muoio, declaring in support of “NJWeedman’s Joint” opening: “The grand opening represents the culmination of an extensive planning and building process, which has been brought…

My thoughts while watching Outlander episode 201

  1. Shouldn’t she be more pregnant?
  2. I like what they did with the theme song.
  3. Die, Frank!  Die!
  4. Loving her bitchiness, ignoring Frank
  5. Good.  She sees the BJR in him.
  6. Yay!  Rev W.  Such a kindly man.
  7. And Mrs Graham. Kindly woman.
  8. Love Claire’s vocab. lol
  9. Omg I love Mrs G.  For believing Claire.
  10. Love the pale faces and colors. Or lack thereof.
  11. Claire’s thought bubble:  You are SO not Jamie.
  12. Ok.. maybe Frank’s not so bad. Just boring old Frank.
  13. I like him much more as Frank than as BJR.
  14. Ew. Tobias has British teeth. Gross.
  15. P-p-p-pregnant. Yeah, Frankie boy.  Whoops. There goes your inner BJR.
  16. Ok. Tobias is a good actor. Still think he’s unattractive. And Frank’s boring. And BJR… of course.
  17. Didn’t men have any different clothes in the 40s besides 3 piece suits?
  18. WEE ROGER!!!!
  19. 2 years. I thought she was gone 3.
  20. Flog.
  21. Were Claire/Cait’s eyebrows always so sparse?
  22. Cait, you’re breaking my heart.
  23. Leave the past behind. Now I have the Fates Warning song in my head.
  24. Don’t you dare take off Jamie’s ring!
  25. What’s the other ring?
  26. Burning it?!  It should be in a museum!
  27. Pan Am
  28. Skyscrapers
  29. Oh thank god we’re back to Jamie.
  30. And Claire’s happy
  31. Lol but not Murtagh.
  32. Poor PTSD Jamie.
  33. “Fronce.”  British accents are silly.
  34. Omg he’s so cute. Frank is such a stuffy old man in comparison.
  35. Indeed. What the hell ARE you going to tell Murtagh?
  36. Perceptive Murtagh.
  37. Mmmmm Jamie hair.
  38. Those back scars sure come in handy.
  39. Oh Jamie, my lad, you are a wheeler dealer.
  40. Oh no. Here comes small pox dude.
  41. The comte’s face looks fake.
  42. Our Claire. Speaking the truth and making enemies everywhere she goes.

Outlander Stars Reveal What’s New in Season 2

I love these two together even when they’re not Jamie and Claire. When Sam spoke, Cait looked at him and politely paid attention to what he was saying and then he did the same for her. They are both charming, polite, and respectful.  Can’t help but love them!

And they’re both nice to look at.  😉  Love her dress.  Wish I could see the lower part of it.  Hopefully we’ll get a standing pic of her in it another day.

She Divorced Me Because I Left Dishes by the Sink

Must Be This Tall To Ride

(Image/ (Image/

It seems so unreasonable when you put it that way: My wife left me because sometimes I leave dishes by the sink.

It makes her seem ridiculous; and makes me seem like a victim of unfair expectations.

We like to point fingers at other things to explain why something went wrong, like when Biff Tannen crashed George McFly’s car and spilled beer on his clothes, but it was all George’s fault for not telling him the car had a blind spot.

This bad thing happened because of this, that, and the other thing. Not because of anything I did!

Sometimes I leave used drinking glasses by the kitchen sink, just inches away from the dishwasher.

It isn’t a big deal to me now. It wasn’t a big deal to me when I was married. But it WAS a big deal to her.

Every time she’d walk into the kitchen…
