Happy Fun Entry About Nip/Tuck

Last night was the season finale of Nip/Tuck. The previews promised it to be “so shocking, you will poop your neighbors pants” or something. This season has been surprising in its trashiness, sure. But it's pretty hard to shock me. Joss Whedon seems to be the only television writer who can do that sufficiently. And even he hasn't done that in a long time.

****SPOILER ALERT****
(Like anyone reads my blog for Nip/Tuck updates)

So, I started watching, thinking “Bring it on, Ryan Murphy. What have you got?”. I wasn't shocked when it was revealed than Famke Jansen was a man. (Hellooooo, horse face). I wasn't shocked when Joan Rivers wanted to get surgery to look older to make her grandson happy. I wasn't shocked when Adrienne killed himself (that boy was WAAAAY too fucked up to live). I wasn't shocked when Sean told Julia he loved her and it looked like he about to go on a Kamikaze mission to kill the Carver. But the last shot of the episode…ok, it didn't SHOCK me, necessarily. But I never saw it coming at all. So, bravo, Ryan Murphy. You got me. I am indeed concerned for Christian's welfare. Because the LAST thing that guy needs is to get ass-raped again. And he seemed to be making so much progress toward not being so much of a prick. Hmmm…UNLESS, we're supposed to believe that the Carver KILLED Christian, because he told Sean that he was going to kill HIM. In that case, that IS shocking. While I'm thinking about it, how did The Carver even KNOW about Christian if Sean was the only one who did the television interview. Unless the Carver is THEIR ANESTHESIOLOGIST!! SHOCKING!!

Ok, I'm done now.

****WARNING****
THE FOLLOWING ENTRY IS LADEN WITH MELANCHOLY. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK.

It's pretty gloomy outside. For some reason, though, I was happy about it when I walked out the door this morning. The warm dampness hit my skin and I smiled. But now I am in my office where this is no weather. It's always 60 degrees and fluorescent in this place.

My mom called me last night to tell me she has a spot of melanoma on her back that she has to get removed. It's not a huge deal as long as she acts on it fast. And she's had cysts before. It's all because she's been living in sunny places for 30 years. She's a walking advertisement for sunscreen. Makes me very glad I live in a place where you don't see the sun that often.
She also told me about how she had to kick out her new roommate because the lady was starting to mooch. I worry about my mom because, since the divorce, she has been letting people take advantage of her in this way, letting them stay with her and eat her food and make demands. She has no leech radar and doesn't get rid of people until they've been sucking her dry for a while. My mom's lack of self-sufficiency has become the #1 reason why I don't want to get married. She was married to my dad for 30 years and she completely forgot how to be on her own. As a result, she makes poor decisions. I had to tell her that for a while, she need to stop trusting people outside her immediate family and learn to say no to people who ask her for favors. Hopefully, this will help her. She will have to get a job soon and she's terrified. She hasn't worked since I was a small child. I never ever EVER want to find myself in such a situation. Obviously, times are different, married women, even stay at home moms, are a lot more independent than they used to be. But it still worries me. Sometimes you don't know you're complacent until it's too late to do anything about it.
