I See What They Did There

Anyone watching “disjointed” on Netflix? If not, it’s a half hour comedy by Chuck Lorre (Two and a Half Men, Mom) filmed in front of a live audience starting Kathy Bates.

Oh, and it’s about a legal cannabis business. And its owner (Bates), as well as her employees.

I won’t go too much into it, because this post is not a review BUT I will say this: I love the Pete character. It is SO spot on.

Anyway, there is a particular character suffering from PTSD. While confiding in another character he talks about being able to cope during the day, but it’s later when he’s home alone when it becomes hardest to cope. Medicated or not.

And I’m here thinking: Man, I know how that feels. It sucks. Being alone and having to like deal with like shit and stuff. (So poetic, I know) (And I had a time like that once. Maybe twice)

And then I started thinking…stoned, of course…Man, if there was like someone out there who found themselves alone having a hard time and just wanted to chat with someone. Shoot the shit to pass some time, I would totally do that for someone. Someone I don’t even know. You know?

I’m a big fan of texting, and email, and DMs, even PMs… Look, what I’m saying is, if you want that… That human connection (NOT SEXTING) (EVEN THOUGH I’M REALLY GOOD AT IT. BUT SERIOUSLY) with someone… I can do that. And if you ended up here (how?!) on my blog, then yes. Let’s talk about coping, or whatever. Find me @xojmo

I have been told I’m inspirational, but whatever. Back patted.

Otherwise, everyone else should check out disjointed (lowercase on purpose). It’s for mature audiences but not cuz of the weed I don’t think, but rather the use of the word “fucking.”

JMo Rant: Is This TV or TMI?

I was watching that stupid Quit-Smoking-Gum commercial and when the guys says, “15 days…but not in a row.” And I literally blurted out, “Guy! Who gives a shit? Fucking congratulations for quitting a habit that is literally killing you.  And I’m literally using the actual term of “literally” correctly. I could not care less that you’ve not smoked for 15 days. But not in a row.”

And then I thought, why is this guy so fucking smug? So it’s like cool to fall of the wagon but still get credit for 15 days? No. You see, no one at AA get a chip for 6 months…but you know…not in a row. There was two months in 2010. 2011 was bad. Then 3 months in 2012….

Yeah, no.  Dude, here’s how you quit smoking:   Stop buying cigarettes. And then lighting them and smoking them.

I’m honestly not trying to shit on those trying to quit smoking.  I guess I’m just thinking – I don’t give a flying fuck.  And while we’re at it, I don’t care about your ailment or disease or misfortune either!!

Why am I forced to watch/listen to uncomfortable commercials about erectile dysfunction, dandruff, overactive bladder, incontinence, diarrhea, constipation, disgusting mucus, erections lasting for 7 hours; see a professional, the sad cloud that follows you around, the wellness spa you should go to because 12 step programs don’t work for you, tampons, cramps, hemorrhoids – whatever it is… I don’t care. I really really don’t. Go away.

The pharma commercials crack me up the most….because I don’t go to the doctor and say “Hey, can I get Trademarked-Brand-Name-Drug from you today?”

No, my doctor sends a script to CVS and then some dude that looks like Red Swingline Guy fills it, and probably automatically uses generic to save me money anyway.  Guess what? I have a prescription for Paxil, but I’ve been taking Paroxetine for years!

Thanks for letting me rant,
