About My Blog.

Welcome! This is "Catatonic Digressions."
Most, if not all readers don't understand my blog's title. It's an old inside joke from a forum long gone. I was going to change it, but since it's been "confusing" for so long, I decided to leave it. Don't worry about what it means, the content of the blog is what is important.

Unfortunately, my blog isn't what I set out for it to be. A disturbed and manic online stalker and cyberbully has made it impossible for me to post about family, my son, life in my part of New York...so I stopped (for the most part), and I mostly reblog and repost what I feel is important, necessary or close to my heart. As for the stalking sociopath, she can go to hell for harassing me and my family since mid-2008. You can't scare me offline with a few lame threats and dozens of pages of defamation, abuse, depravity and libel. I'm bitchy like that. ;)
(Anyone who knows me knows I'm not actually a bitch, but let's allow this psychopath to think I'm a bitch to her blackened heart's content—it seems to make her feel she has some sort of control over me…and it does not.)

If you read a story and you feel moved in any way, comment. Comments are more than welcome.

Unlike those online who lie and hide behind fake photos and insanely fabricated stories, I'm a real person. I'm real and I don't pretend to be someone I'm not. After years of putting up with online abuse by manipulative, pathological liars, attention whores or narcissists, I've had it. Don't bother me with pathetic drama. I have no time for these types of people and their need to absorb others' time and attention.

Feel free to email me if you have a story or cause you would like shared, especially if it pertains to animal rights, liberation, veganism, animal welfare, health and well-being, geekery, Macs and computer dorkiness, music, lowbrow art, kitchy stuff, skateboards, the beach, swimming, diving, NYC, beading (it's my hobby), recipes (love to cook, especially if I made the recipe up myself!), VEGAN!, ALF, Sea Shepherd, Action for Animals, NIO, 269Life and/or anything you think I might enjoy or others might—you never know. It doesn't always have to be serious. Hilarious stories, local NY, funny videos or photos, photobombs (especially if they contain pets!)...I might be partially censored, but I'm not closed down!

Please, join Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, and follow them and The Barbi Twins on Twitter and Facebook.

Classic Sesame Street, Because the New Sesame Street Just Doesn't Cut It.

Today my son wanted to play with my computer. He has his own eMac, but he really wanted the 23" cinema screen and MY desk, MY mouse, MY everything. We'd already made pancakes together, played a few learning games and he played "spill the salt and pepper in a pile so mommy has to use the Dyson." (he loves the Dyson, but is afraid of all other vacuums!) It's freezing outside, so we're sort of trapped indoors. We could walk around a mall, but no. I am not a mall person. He and I have both had bad head colds for weeks, so I caved and let him sit on my lap and "use my computer," meaning I went onto Youtube and looked up some original Sesame Street clips. It's amazing how the new show does nothing for him, but the old songs and learning clips made him want to clap and dance in my lap. I had to play "The Ladybug's Picnic" quite a few times! I'm so glad I bought the DVD's "Sesame Street Old School" a while ago, because I think he'll enjoy them on those long days we're stuck inside and he's not in the mood to read his library of books (and I'm not kidding about "library" — he has well over 100, plus all of mine and my brother and sisters) or play with anything. I even enjoy watching them. Who doesn't? You had to have been a grump to not like those old classic shows. I'm relieved he's not a TV addict toddler. Those shows they have for little kids are really annoying, and not very educational. I just hope he never watches and then likes Thomas the Tank. That show is absolutely frightening! The worst 3D rendering and facial expressions, and people with NO hands! But I digress. Check out some old school Semame Street animations and see why today's television for kids sucks.
