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.

For the Oceans,
Suzanne

Facebook’s new Timeline: Here come the gifts!

Facebook’s new Timeline: Here come the gifts!



By Jason



Our Security Advisor Sean Sullivan has playing around with Facebook’s new Timeline layout.
His first impression is that it’s designed to encourage you to share and encourage your friends’ media consumption.
In the endless attempt to monetize a free service that about one billion human beings rely on, Facebook is also encouraging you to give your friends more than just warm birthday greetings. They want you to give gifts.
Here are some of the gifts my friends are recommended to give to me:

Yes, I am over 21 years old. Sean found that if you’re under 21, Facebook recommends chocolate instead of wine.
It’s natural to speculate that Facebook wants to become a recommendation engine that serves you media and gift recommendations based on your interactions. This — as always — will lead to some unintended consequences.
Perhaps, the next time you change your relationship status to “single”, your friends will see this gift recommendation:

Note from me: The last thing I want is anyone using this feature on Facebook. I won't use it when there's a special day for a friend, relative or acquaintance, so I seriously hope no one uses it when my birthday arrives. Unless there is a "The I Have a Psychotic Stalker" Knife Set...in purple or green, thank you. ;)
