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!

Hauppauge social worker has pleaded guilty to charges that she posted a suggestive ad on Craigslist about a 9-year-old girl, a spokesman for the Suffolk County district attorney's office said Saturday.
Margery Tannenbaum, 41, whose attorney said she was "clearly sorry for what transpired," pleaded guilty to aggravated harassment in First District Court in Central Islip Friday.
As a result of the plea, she will serve one year of "interim probation," said district attorney spokesman Robert Clifford.
She also has to perform 35 hours of community service designated by the Department of Probation and is required to undergo psychological counseling.
In addition, orders of protection against Tannenbaum barring her from being near the girl's house will remain in place, Clifford said.
Newsday is not naming the girl, who was named in the Craigslist ad, or her mother.
Tad Scharfenberg, Tannenbaum's attorney, said it was time to resolve the matter.
"Both the DA and myself sat down and realized that . . . it is better for all parties to come to a resolution," Scharfenberg said. "She is clearly sorry for what transpired and how it transpired. I think it is a good result for all sides."
Scharfenberg, of Bohemia, also stressed that if his client has a successful probation, the charges on her record will be reduced from a criminal conviction to a violation.
Tannenbaum was initially accused in February 2009 of posting the Craigslist ad and giving callers the girl's phone number.
Police said she made the posting as an act of revenge stemming from a dispute between the girl and Tannenbaum's daughter, who was also 9 years old at the time.
Tannenbaum is scheduled for a probation review on Jan. 12, 2012.

"…whose attorney said she was "clearly sorry for what transpired," 
Oh really? Disgusting. The fact that all this woman gets is 35 hours of community service is just inexcusable. She's a Social Worker! WHY she did it is no excuse. She's supposed to help people, and that includes children.  —S

What a sick bitch.
