I don't like stupid people

I know I haven't been blogging much lately.  I have things to write about, but just don't feel like putting pen to paper - so to speak - when I have the chance.  But I'll try to update a few things now.

We now have physical proof that Brother is an idiot.  Like me and our dad, he is also a Type I diabetic.  Since it's in our family, we all know that taking care of ourselves is important.  None of us are even close to being role models, but Mom and I have known and/or suspected for a long time that Brother isn't taking care of himself like he should be.  Brother had to have a procedure today on one (maybe both, but I think just one) of his eyes because he had developed diabetic retinopathy.  Now, even diabetics with good control are susceptible to this.  Our dad developed it before he died.  However, my dad was at least ten years older than my brother is now before he got it.  And the real kicker is that, if you go to the eye doc every year - as all diabetics know you should - the doc can detect it before there are any symptoms and stop it before it gets bad.  So Brother having a leaking blood vessel this early in his life means that he hasn't been taking care of himself and he definitely hasn't been going to the eye doc regularly.  Kind of pisses me off, frankly.

I do worry about him, though.  Partly because of his physical health, but I really truly worry about his mental and emotional health.  His gf (aka BGF)  is ten years younger than he is.  Her dad - who was several years older than her mom - just died last year after being ill for several months.  I worry that BGF's going to look at this and think that she doesn't want to put herself in the same boat that her mom was/is in.  If she breaks up with Brother, he's really going to be screwed.  He STILL doesn't have a job and is living in her house.  I don't remember how this came up, but Brother sent me an email once when I was in college stating that he thought about suicide and the only reason he hadn't done anything was because he couldn't do that to our mom.  I think BGF is really good for him, and as long as she's around, I'm not worried about him doing anything drastic or dangerous.  But if she calls it quits... I'm going to be really scared.  I hope and pray all the time that he can keep it together, especially now.

My friendship with Ginny is totally and completely over.  I haven't been in touch with her at all since the Victoria Day long weekend in May, which was when she blew me off for the THIRD different guy.  However, I had kept her as a friend on Facebook, since I didn't want to "officially" cut her off, with the vague notion that maybe one day we could be friends again.  Plus, I was kind of waiting to see how the relationship with this new guy went.  But then a few weeks ago, I noticed a certain guy commenting on her photos and status updates.  This guy was the boyfriend before the current one.  (So many stupid boyfriends...)  This guy was the one who had ended up being a verbally abusive alcoholic who then threatened suicide when Ginny broke up with him.  He was the reason I dropped everything to be with Ginny late one Friday night while he was making these threats, which by the way, turned out to be big fat lies.  This was the guy that Ginny was worried about him maybe starting to stalk her and he just couldn't leave her alone while I supported her through the break-up and everything that came after.  This was the guy that Ginny had blocked and deleted on every possible thing she could, including Facebook.  And now he's back in her life.  I was livid.  There is not a single good reason I can come up with for letting that lying manipulator back into her life.  And while I know that her decision to let him back into her life had absolutely nothing to do with me, it still kind of felt like a slap in the face.  Like everything I did to be there for her when she was having a really rough time because of him was completely meaningless.  So that was the last straw for me.  You all know that I had questioned her man-related decisions for some time, but this was too much.  So I have now deleted her from everything I have, with the exception of my cell phone, in case she sends a text or calls, I want to realize who it's coming from.  I'm sorry that it's come to this because she was a good friend there for a while, but I'm not willing to deal with this crap any more.

I should also blog about my job - which is going well - but I've rambled on long enough for now.  It'll wait for another day!

Question of the Day

Somehow I don't think I'm the only one wondering about this...

What is Usain Bolt like in bed?  Is he as fast and arrogant as he is on the track?  Or is there another side to him that COMES out?

Don't deny it; you want to know too.  ;-)
