In Memory of Megan Meier

In Memory of Megan Meier
A sad case of online bullying resulted in the death of a 13 year old girl with a history of depression.

After receiving a particularly cruel and hurtful email, she went to her room and hanged herself in her closet.

The teen had suffered from depression since third grade and did take medication for her condition.

When she set up her MySpace account, Megan was happy to talk to the cute 16 year old boy named "Josh" she had met online. Only the "boy" wasn't a boy at all. Megan was actually talking to the mother of a girl she knew that lived just a couple of houses down from her.

Megan died a year ago but the FBI asked her parents to keep the story quiet until they could investigate. Her parents have since split up.

This is a horrible, horrible crime that has left a lovely girl just barely beginning her life dead and her family shattered and destroyed.

And no one is held accountable? That just shows what is happening in the United States today. This entire country is going down the toilet one cruel joke at a time and the government is holding the handle waiting to flush.

We all need to stop online bullying any time we see it. If we can't, then each person should make it their business and take the time to report it to someone who can do something about it.

I gotta be meeeeeee, I gotta be meeeeeeeee

What else can I be but me. Indeed.

I want to be totally shellfish (I think I'll be a prawn today. Cod knows I've earned it) and write about me. All about me. Me me me me... mememememe... Won't that be nice? OK, mostly about me.

Actually, I don't know if it will be nice or not but it will most certainly be fun for me. YeeeHaaa, hat-flingin' type fun too, not your boring ordinary sorta fun. But gut-twisting, (Is that heaving I hear?) silly ass fun.

I had asked Deek to be silly with me but he never answered me in regard to whether he would join in the chaotic fun. Seeing as how that is the case, I'll just take up the slack from my slacker friend. Har har har. I bet I'll hear about that one.

OK fine, I don't actually think you're a slacker Deeky. I know you work like a madman with an angry weasel in your trousers. Wow, there's a vivid image isn't it?

Actually, if anyone can send me a photo of an angry weasel I would really appreciate it. I need one. I also need a photo of Shaun Dooley. He's one of my favorite male actors. And it's nothing to do with the fact that I think he's really handsome.

Not at all. Not in the slightest. Not for one moment. Well OK, maybe for one moment but not a second longer. Wait, is a moment longer than a second? Or is it the other way round? Hmmm...

Well there you go, that will be something interesting or at least incredibly boring for a later post. Aren't you all so very lucky? Course you are.

I am now ending this post with one of my favorite Python funnies.

Re-vamping my site

Re-vamping? Isn't that like repeat vampire-type vamping? OK, I guess not. lol...

Seriously, for those of you who have visited my site before you will notice that I have made some changes. There are more to come so stay tuned.

I am stopping for the night because I can barely see! I've worn myself out trying to decide how to re-do my site. Suggestions are most welcome.

By the way, check out Kate's Utopia as well. It's brand new. :o)

A penny for the guy.

Remember, remember the fifth of November the gunpowder treason and plot. I know of no reason why the gunpowder treason should ever be forgot.
