The Caldwell Courier Journal: May Issue!

Happy May , everyone!

Hope you all are enjoying the Spring Sun ,or hiding in the shadows (this is where I am at the moment) !

It`s that time of the month again : NEWS LETTER TIME!!


As I said last time, since Warden started her News Letter Mailing list , she has experienced some technical difficulties for some of the subscribers getting their news letter.

If you are one of those unfortunate souls, FEAR NOT!

I hear rumors that unsubscribing to the News letter and then re- subscribe , will fix the problem!
You will find the link to the un-subscription page at the very bottom of the e-mail you got for the March or April issue.

You can find past and future Issues here! :


So , Let`s get down to the May Issue of the CCJ !

This Months news letter just happened to land on Mothers day!

So I had a hard time reading about Beth`s longing and sorrow of not having a mother , or a father.

She further talks about how in her younger days , hurt seeing her friends celebrating this day with their mothers ,while she could not .

But her joy of being the mother of Little Wrath , has made her heart full again.

And not surprisingly , Our Angel decides to have this Horoscope , Mothers day related!

This time he has chosen different Pandora charms to represent the star signs!

Here is the one for May / Taurus!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
“Taurus, someone in your life needs your trademark patience this month.  People born under your sign are very loyal, and someone around you is struggling- and it’s getting on your nerves.  Your charm is the Labrador Puppy dangle!  It’s a reminder that this is just a stage for them.  Whether they need your gentle guidance, or a rolled up newspaper on their behind, your support to them will come back to you tenfold when you really need something similar for yourself. “

This is the first time a horoscope has ever me!
And the Labrador puppy dangle is just so frigging cute! PERFECT!

So as you can imagine , V`s answer is pretty straight forward on this months question:

“Dear Vishous,
I am twenty-seven years old and about to marry my very best friend in June.  Bobby (let’s call him) and I have been together since graduate school (about two years,) and we get along great.  We moved in together last year, and after some initial growing pains, we’ve successfully transitioned into a two person household.  Bobby asked me to marry him over the Christmas holidays, and of course, I said yes.  I have no doubt he’s the one and I’m excited to call him my husband and start a family with him.
The problem is his mother.  She’s absolutely impossible.

Bobby’s mother second guesses me about everything: the band, the cake, the dinner, the schedule, the start time, the end time, the bridesmaid dresses, the groomsmen’s clothes, the musical choice for the service, the flowers.  It’s like she doesn’t approve of anything I’m doing on purpose, and I’m sick of it.  Bobby’s let me plan everything, in part because he works longer hours than I do, but also because I have an opinion on how I want things to be and he’s more laid back.  But the result is that he doesn’t get involved enough when his mother gets on me
Do you have any advice for my handling this woman?  At this point, I’m so ready to scream at her, it’s overshadowing the whole day.

Fed Up “


Vishous:  Fed Up, I have two things to tell you:
1)  Did you know that duct tape works well on pieholes?  It’s cheap, too; and
2)  Both you and that mother-in-law of yours need to slap a strip on right this f*cking minute-

Mary: *shakes her head*  Oh, dear God.

V:  What?  I’m serious.  If Fed Up knows what she wants her wedding to be like, why is she talking to Bobby’s mother about any part of it?  She should just stop with the chitchat and not give the other woman a chance to say squat about the event.

This time , Rhage has watched one of my favorite movies , ( again!) Friday The 13th!
And He is joined by V and Butch!

“I forgot how much I love this film, although it only got a 63% on the Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer and an Audience Score of 60% on that site?  WTF.  Kevin Bacon gets it in the throat and that’s the best people can do?  I think they’re jaded.

This movie started an entire franchise of twelve other films as well as spinoffs in television, books, comics and video games.  Jason, like Freddie Krueger and Michael Myers, is synonymous with Halloween, horror movies, and things that go bump in the night.  Even though we don’t really see the icon in this film, I’m including a picture of him here, just ‘cuz he’s awesome.

I love this movie so much.  It gets two fangs up and a dagger for respect! “

This months Ask A Brother Question was mentioned in Beth`s Missive from the mansion , but I`ll put it here anyways;

Beth: I’m going to field the Ask A Brother question this month- on behalf of some of the other couples in the house.  A lot of folks what to know if (when) V and Jane will have a kid.  Or Phury and Cormia.  Or Butch and Marissa.  Or Xhex and John.  Or any of the other folks under this roof.  It is a totally fair question in a lot of ways.  Most couples at least try to have kids.  Many couples are excited by the prospect of that.  A lot of couples can’t wait to bring new life into the world.  So it’s a natural thing for two people to do together. And the other thing is, it’s pretty obvious that the questions come from a place of love and well-wishes.  In asking such a thing, it’s clear that the person putting a question mark at the end of those words just wants the two people to have the full experience of husband and wife or boyfriend and girlfriend or husband and husband, and that’s a wonderful thing.  So there’s no reason to feel bad, at all, for wondering when (if) it will happen.

But I think it can be hard on the couple.  I understand that V and Jane don’t want to have kids, and I totally support their decision (even though she can’t carry a child, they could still adopt.)  After all, just because you don’t have a child, doesn’t mean you don’t have a family.  Two people can live an entire true love romance and never reproduce because kids do not equate to validity and depth in a relationship.  And as for the others in the house?  I believe that Butch and Marissa are thinking about it, but haven’t decided.  And Cormia has made it very clear she wants a baby.  I haven’t spoken with Xhex about this topic, so I’m not sure where they stand.”

I absolutely LOVED that this question was answered like it was. That it is perfectly OK , to not want kids. Personally , Kids is not something I want , and that is totally fine!
