Good, Bad and Ugly (Really ugly, actually. Grotesque even.)

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.


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 :(


  1. Is this show a reality show?? YUCK!

  2. For some reason it seems that most people who dont need children continue to have them. I will never understand why. Sorry about the bfn, but like u siad its very early.

  3. I just want to say that that show sounds ridiculous. I'm having a hard time imagining someone watching that show and enjoying it.

    Also, I'm really not trying to get your hopes up but when I got my BFP I also had vivid dreams around 9dpo. They were weird sex dreams, not even sexy sex dreams just weird (sorry if that's tmi.)

    With all that said, I'm really feeling good about you getting your BFP this time!! :)

    I'm stalking you. Not in the creepy way ;)

  4. That movie sounds terrible! Is it a documentary or just a movie? Either way that is ridiculous. BLeh!
    Congrats on 100 followers! Maybe your Valentine's BFP will just be a little belated?

  5. Buster has you! Hence equalling the best vday ever!!!

    (and whats up with movies that are against West V???)

    Happy Vibes your way lady!

  6. First of all, I'm a little angry with you for posting anything about the Whites. Did you miss the unspoken code among all West Virginians where we don't dignify that family at all by speaking of them?? Tsk. Tsk.

    Yay for 100 followers!

    Boo for BFN, but still think you tested too early, friend. I get wanting to give Buster a great present, but I'm with Marly - he has you. What else could anyone want? <3 ya.

  7. Yuck that movie sounds awful.
    Congrats on 100 followers.
    Don't give up hope, I got nothing on 9dpo, but a week later I got a BFP.

  8. What a crummy movie!
    Dreams can be tricky. Sorry for the BFN - but I too think it might have been too early!
    Yay for 100 followers! :)

  9. It's still early so I'm holding out hope for you!

  10. UGH that movie sounds terrible. Makes me SO damn angry even thinking that people like THAT can have kids so damn easily. WTF???

    UGH anyway, I hope your Vday was great. I'm sure your DH was happy just to have you in his arms :)

  11. That movie makes me sick. On the "bright side" maybe that baby is with a lovely family that has been wanting a baby for a long time right now. I need to say that to feel better because if CPS let "mom" have her baby back I'll be SICK.

  12. I hope you didnt pay to watch that crap! How sick and sad! UGH!

  13. Wow, the world is not fair in how it doles out children. That show sounds terrible. And sorry you didn't get the Valentine's gift you wanted for your husband...but it's still early.
    Good luck in the coming days...

  14. I had to comment on this My grandfather was from WV and when I read this post I had to find it on demand and watch it. It was BAD but like a train wreck I watched the whole thing. I could not believe that lady was snorting drugs in the hospital room after giving birth!! Goodness...
