Last night Buster and I struggled to find something to watch on television. There was nothing on. After flipping through for way too long, Buster left it on one of the Showtime channels, which was airing The Wild Wonderful Whites of West Virginia.
First, let me state that I'm not a huge fan of any show that casts such a poor light on an entire state, needless to say my home state. Second, I'm not a huge fan of the "creators of Jackass". That being on the movie poster is more likely to make me never see the movie than to watch it.
Even though I swore I would never watch such filth, I was slightly curious to see what it was all about. For those who haven't seen it, it's about a trashy family in the hills of West Virginia who have lived off of government checks for their entire lives, all the while doing lots of drugs, murdering people, etc. Upstanding citizens.
We watch some drunk shenanigans in a bar. Then the main White, Jesco, talks a bunch to the camera about how his "brain cell" is damaged. Apparently he only started out with one.
Here the movie goes into territory that makes me uncomfortable. Some lady, who is on so many drugs she can barely mumble out a coherent word, is driven to the hospital to go "pick up her baby." I guess she had a baby a couple days ago. Well, they get to the hospital, and some other trashy lady is there telling her that CPS took the baby, "probably because it was on drugs."
So the mother starts sobbing and saying things that only partially sound like dialect. The trashy lady driving her proceeds to go to Taco Bell and order a fajita. The drive-thru attendant tells her that they don't have fajitas. She then requests mozzarella sticks. WTF?!!!
Fast-forward to that night. Mother, trashy driver, and some other trash get all "dolled up" (ok, that phrase should never be used to describe them) to go out to the bar. While at the bar, the new mother is snorting lines off the back of a bar bathroom toilet, and talking about her baby, and how God wants her to have her baby.
I can't help myself. I start crying. I tell Buster that I really don't want to watch this anymore.
THESE ARE THE KIND OF PEOPLE THAT HAVE CHILDREN?! Seriously?! Fuck.
I want to cry thinking about it now.
On a happier note, I have reached 100 followers! I am now coming up with my list of prizes, so stay tuned and I will have that promised giveaway soon!
And today is Valentine's Day. I hope all of you have a wonderful day!
I started out my day by doing what I swore to myself (and proclaimed to many others) that I would not do. After having an incredibly vivid dream in which I was in labor, I woke up and POAS. BFN. Actually, 2 BFNs, one on an Answer and one on a $ store test. Sigh.
I'm only 9dpo, and I know it's still early. I just really wanted to give Buster the best Valentine's Day ever. And now all I have for him is a card :(
