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.

#StandUp250 - Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

#StandUp250 - Sea Shepherd Conservation Society Repost!

In the Faroe Islands, where the brutal and archaic mass slaughter known as the “grindadrap” or “grind” claims the lives of hundreds of cetaceans each year, 250 pilot whales have been slaughtered to date during the current hunting season. Sea Shepherd volunteers are stationed on the ground and at sea in the Faroes, bringing worldwide attention to this cruel slaughter, despite draconian new Faroese laws that target anyone opposing the grind or even approaching one of these horrific hunts.
Seven Sea Shepherd crewmembers have been arrested and charged, and the Royal Danish Navy has been assisting the local Faroese police in these arrests. Denmark is a member state of the European Union (EU), and the slaughter of cetaceans is illegal under EU law. So why is Denmark helping to uphold the cruel and unnecessary hunting of pilot whales in the Faroe Islands?
On August 14, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society will stand in solidarity with the pilot whales and with Sea Shepherd crew in the Faroe Islands, as we demonstrate outside the Embassy of Denmark in Washington, DC and Danish consulates across the United States. We will be there to demand justice for the 250 pilot whales whose lives were senselessly taken on July 23, and for the brave and compassionate Sea Shepherd volunteers who have been arrested.
JOIN US: Stand with Sea Shepherd as we apply pressure on Denmark and the EU to stop this cruel massacre of whales and dolphins in the Faroe Islands once and for all! Check below to see if there is a demonstration in your area on August 14. STAY TUNED: More cities to be added soon.
