Oh dear. This is a grown adult. The poor child. Her nephew? The body language/facial expression … he is scared.
Robin must have been mortified. My guess (given the big Romanesque church in background) is that this is the annual pumpkin patch at Trinity Methodist in Wilmette, an equally snooty church as the one they attend.
She absolutely looks like someone on an outing from a group home. Nephew is totally precious.
“Snooty” is a bad way to describe a church. I withdraw that in favor of “socially aspirational.”
God I love you!
Agreed, also with grammarian below. You’re in the clear, Albie.
it’s a perfectly good way to describe a church, if the congregation is in fact snooty
also, you can tell a child that they have to stay home if they aren’t dressed appropriately
Your guess is correct, Alby. That building in the background is Trinity United Methodist Church in Wilmette. I stopped by there today and the pumpkin sale is in full swing. (No donkeys to be seen today, however.)
If she were a real OMG entrepreneur, she’d set up a petting zoo and let kids ride her.
I was scared that was a Trump hat at first.
Yeah it’s a little tone-deaf given the current climate. Doesn’t she know her BFF Mark Kirk is even backing away?
She was packing her (pink) suitcase and thought, “Gotta pack my trucker hat!” Everything is a costume, a gimmick, a slogan. Not cute when you’re 35 and jobless.
One of the cat ladies called it: trip home to Wilmette on Petey’s dime, with side trip to stalk Choad.
no more cheques
Choad isn’t playing in Chicago until Nov. 11. That would be a long trip home.
Her face is so puffy. Her eyes are almost shut. Cry face or fillers or something. She looks really weird. Maybe it’s just a bad photo.
Bad chemical peel or bad sunbed tan?
Excuse you! Bad chemical peel followed by sunburn *from sunbathing on her back deck.* Probably while slathered with coconut oil, as true earth goddesses do.
I know people when they are taking certain psychiatric medicines (ok term to use?) and they need to, get puffy face. Maybe a western medicine “retreat” occurred. Sometimes gotta try a few approaches, in a holistic manner of course.
Sort of like Jerry Lewis?
You can tell that’s a rich white church because someone has polished all the damn pumpkins. And what the hell is she doing dressed like that in public? Someone ought to commit her.
No one, least of all Allie, allowed Donk take the nephew out alone for an outing — I wonder who drew the short straw & had to supervise her while she was sportin’ that garb, in broad daylight, out in public, contorting for fauxtos.
Haha I thought that too! Did someone oil those down? That could have been such a cute shot, had she not been in it.
For a moment I thought they were fake pumpkins, all shiny like that.
” someone has polished all the damn pumpkins” ftw
A tie-dyed onsie, a trucker hat, and are those Uggs? She really couldn’t possibly look stupider.
Also, her face: WTF?
Her other shoes match her nephew’s.
My daughters are totally into onesies right now. My daughters are 9 and 11 years old.
I did not recognize her. She looks homeless and 50.
I didn’t particularly care for her girly “frocks” phase when she lived in NYC, but good lord—she has not only fallen down the scale of humanity, she’s tumbled straight into its garbage pits.
RE: hat: no you’re not.
Sweet mother of Greg!
She glued that hat to her head at Burning Man and she’s not letting go!
She is so desperate she will take a compliment from any person or object, even an outdated smelly hat.
Also, it makes her look like she has a big, rectangular Frankenstein head. To be kind, I’ll acknowledge that it would make anyone look like that.
Whenever she wears a hat, it seems to perch oddly atop her head. I can’t say if it’s a “Size up, Donkey!” issue or perhaps they don’t make hats large enough to fit on her oversized noggin.
“Hurr, durr, look at me posing in a pumpkin patch holding up…wait for it…a pumpkin! Aren’t I creative? And oh yeah, this thing I’m carrying like a sack of flour is my prop nephew to prove I want to breed and pretend that I’ll be a good mother to my prop child.”
It’s fucking terrifying, this is the scariest Halloween picture I’ve seen this year.
She really blends in to the woos, and looks regular crazy when she’s around them. Put her in a more everyday situation and the crazy just POPS. The tragic hat, the sand blasted skin, the ghoulish teeth, and the whole fucking shebang……..it’s BATSHIT and I am so scared for that kid, I hope Ali was right there and gave him plenty of hugs as soon as he escaped.
What also confounds me is that she actually brought that cheap, ugly synthetic Chinese hat with her to Wilmette instead of donating it to Goodwill the minute she got back from Burning Crotch.
Especially around her brother…. who is genuinely brilliant. Why not wear a hat saying “You are totally normal and any guy would want to wife that immediately” because it’s the same amount of NOT.
Annnnd I get a new screen name.
Hope you and all of yours are doing well!
Yes! Thanks, so far so good. I think reading here has prepared me a little bit hahaha. I have a Julia-in-law, so to speak. (thank fuck they’re not married)
ALSO I’ve never been Source for a screen name before so I’m crazy flattered!
And aww, you. I’ll email you soon.
She’s never met a candid shot she liked. And, poorly posed this time which I can only suspect is because a frustrated photographer wanted to enjoy small child in pumpkin patch and not “document” out-of-touch family member resembling a psychotic break.
The way she is holding the poor kid…
Look at MEEEEE!!! Ha ha ha!! Don’t I look awesome???? Of course I do.
I will put down this annoying prop I am holding in my arm any minute now.
LOOK AT MEEE!!! PLEASE!!!!
He has the exact wary and resigned expression his own pa has when appearing alongside A Donkey in various Bogger family photos down through the years.
Like a kidnapper …
It looks like she would be hurting his stomach holding him like that. Why can’t she do anything normally?!?
I cannot believe a 35 year old woman even left the house like that in the middle of the night to run to CVS for Pepto Bismol, forget wearing that outfit out during the daytime to a social event where photos will be taken. The toddler is dressed more like a grown-up than she is.
You are not quirky and a free spirit. You are total cuckoobird nutty. And your parents should be ashamed of themselves for being willing to be seen in public with you, dressed like that. They should have told you to change, or you don’t go. But they’ve never told you ‘no’ a day in your life, so.
That’s what I can’t understand, normal, loving parents would tell their child, regardless of age, that they’ll not be seen in public with them dressed like this. Can’t even feel sorry for her parents as they enable if not nurture this behavior.
When I zoomed in to read the cap and make sure it wasn’t “Make America Great” it looked like she is wearing a pajama top underneath it.
Her face is no longer young looking, so acting like a lunatic is even more jarring. Her face says, “Suburban Book Club Member Who Just Adored The Last One By Jodi Picoult” but the rest of her looks like a circus clown.
“Suburban Book Club Member Who Just Adored The Last One By Jodi Picoult” — JAYSUS, this made me laugh so hard.
Donk’s attempt to be (what she thinks is) a hippie reminds me of the rockabilly/psychobilly women who want to be like Bettie Page. There are those who wear the short bangs and vintage dresses, and those who wear the short bangs and Bettie Page t-shirts.
and the blue hair and the cat rhinestone glasses
Oh Greg, and they are in their 50s. I know three women like this.
Not all … one I know just had a baby yesterday …
One of the things I love about this photo is that the little one is in a jacket that he’s nearly outgrown. Could even be a hand-me-down, can you imagine? Not Yandy!
She even has a trucker’s smile now. Something that says: “You have a good day now, ya hear.”
holding snuff in the underlip, spitting
Aileen Wuornos’ smile
What if she is the Zodiac Killer’s secret daughter?
Is that the reason why she is drawn to isolated places in Northern CA?
I am obsessed with the idea that Charles Manson’s children are out there, somewhere. Of course, they could be about 60 now, but I still picture them as scruffy little hippie kids with dirty feet.
Do we really know where Petey came from?
Something about that man ain’t right.
The funniest thing I’ve heard about children and grandchildren of pernicious people is that Stalin’s granddaughter lives in Portland, OR, where she has a store that sells vintage clothing and scented candles.
So, basically, she is a woo!
road trip NOW
Dust… NAILED IT… that picture should be added to the post as a cautionary example.
I will never understand the overbite and the underbite at the same time. TEEF.
Dem teef tho! They are disturbing.
That poor kid is going to hate Halloween for the rest of his life.
Memories of this fateful day will come up in therapy around 2035.
To think it was 10 years ago that Judy’s condom fairy dress at the Gawker Halloween party launched her “career.”
The question always comes up about what the deal is with her family when she insists on being indulged like a little kid (the matching Christmas sweaters, the Easter kinderwhore, the infantile onesies, etc.). I wonder if they aren’t so old-fashioned that they think a woman doesn’t grow up until she’s married and has kids, and until then she’s a child–maybe a miserable, difficult, expensive and even embarrassing 35 year old, but still “just a kid” whose issues will magically disappear when she decides to “settle down” with the fantastic son of a powerful mom. But who knows. Maybe they are just humoring her because there’s nothing else to be done.
Do you suppose her parents are so square that they believe this get-up is normal garb for people in California, and not escapees from Grey Gardens?
Wilmette, while tiny, is not the sticks. There is no way anyone living that close to a major metropolitan area, and who are socially active, would believe this is ‘normal’.
I think they know that Julia isn’t married BECAUSE she’s immature, not the other way around. Recall Momsers gently urging Julia to “settle down and stay in one place” lest she never meet someone who wants to do the same with her.
SHE IS TOO MARRIED SHE MARRIED HERSELF AT BURNING MAN OMG YOU ARE SO DEFAULT WORLD DON’T YOU KNOW WHO SHE IS?
STOP BEING A SLAVE TO BABYLON FREE YOUR MIND and your ass will follow (cracking myself up here)
Love colors BRIGHT, wear onesies and be shallow.
you’re picking up what I’m laying down!
Or whose issues will be someone else’s problem if she ever gets married
OMG, SS lives!
I have a bunch of friends with kids around Noah’s age. Can’t recall the last time I saw any of them posing with the kid in their arms. Once a kid can walk, let them walk! They don’t want to be picked up anymore at that age.
Body language is so telling. This is nitpicky, but someone who truly knows how to connect with children might have crouched down to their level and posed for the photo that way. But this is Julia we’re talking about, and she needed everyone to see her rainbow onesie and fUggs. Today’s head-to-toe, y’all!
You know that Julia anticipated maybe running into people she knew from high school there (with their own kids, natch)…hence the need to come dressed in rainbow onesie and full wackadoo woo gear. “I don’t have a baby b/c I’m shifting paradigms, bitches! I invented post-its!”
Love the Romy and Michelle reference. So applicable
Not to be all think of the children! But can you put a black circle
Or bar around his face? He doesn’t have the choice that grown folks do of being seen with her
I still hypothesize may be with child. Should l ow by Christmas at the latest.
Btw if i am wrong, i will give you all 50% off the retail price of my latest coaching series
Many of us have had the puffy pregnancy face even in the first trimester… and baggy clothes? That’s what I thought too. We’ll see.
She could be, and is just waiting for 2nd trimester to announce. And if so, how sad for all involved.
I’ll take that bet. That girl is not pregnant.
If she was, I think she’d be announcing it by now. She wants so bad to have attention.
While a child would bring attention, it would also bring massive and unyielding parental intervention in her life. She’s not pregnant.
I think this, too. It is hard to imagine this one keeping a secret for 3 months.
or an early termination and recovery in wilmette
While I obviously have no idea what she’s been up to, I too would consider this more likely than a Donk pregnancy and waiting for the big announcement. I don’t believe she’s BABY CRAZY BIOLOGICAL CLOCK at all.
i believe the baby crazy because everyone else has one and it makes you cool and the center of attention if you have one.
but babies are actual work, and there are laws against leaving them unattended for days at a time.
Yes, but it’s the same as her envy of (what she perceives to be) people’s glamorous jobs or loverships or even fauxtos. I have no doubt she WANTS those things, but she is absolutely not willing to do the slightest bit of work to achieve them, not even wash her hair regularly or learn something about how clothes should fit. So I just can’t imagine her wanting to ACTUALLY go through pregnancy and (however criminally half-assed) parenting.
Plus I wouldn’t underestimate her deep (deep!) aversion to the idea of another person who would BY DEFINITION be much, much tinier and cuter than herself, in perpetuity throughout the draconian universe.
As we all know, it was no accident and not just the usual tone-deaf trying-to-be-hip braying when she said a hundred years ago that she’d want a gay son: a daughter would be a younger and cuter female, and a straight son would regularly hang with younger and cuter females and eventually bring one home. CAN’T STAND THE THOUGHT.
If she were able to hook a baby daddy who was willing to help her outsource as much of parenting as possible (surrogate, nannies, boarding school when they’re old enough), she would.
JIML was convinced she wanted kids, even though she could hardly take care of herself, let alone her cats. One time she told me she “wouldn’t mind being a stepmother, as long as the kids were cute and nice and liked me.” (She was 100 percent serious.) I told her it sounded like she didn’t want kids!
I agree, she’d probably do (or “do”) lots of things if she got her checklist fantasy who provided all the moneyz and work and status and constant adoration. That’s just not happening, though. So I don’t think she’s really into the idea of a baby under the present circumstances.
ask any parent — the idea of a baby is infinitely different from having an actual baby
Yes, but I think that unlike many non-parents who have unrealistic idealized expectations, Donk doesn’t even find the IDEA too attractive.
Not quite that, IMO, because … it’d necessitate Donk acting some way other than “other people’s kids are great; *I* just don’t want one” & where’s the victim role in that scenario? No way she’d be at all casual about it, not w/ Dad$er around to snap fauxtos of Donk in repose, recuperating on the couch …
What I can see her doing is pretending to DJ CueBall that she’s w/ burra & even going so far as to high tail it out of dodge if he’s scheduled to be around during her uhm-er-oops-not-really-so-pregnant-after-all period. She’d even tell him that the onesie kept her mother from detecting her (imaginary) baby bump.
Poor kid. Crazy lady. Pretty pumpkins.
Hey Julia, Ali and any of you other unethical twits, if you think you’ve called me out on my own industry message board, I’ve written about RBD publicly and disclosed my screen name. https://twitter.com/MelaynaLokosky/status/788517227100123137
/Winchester mic drop (while speaking English loudly with grace). You’re a hero.
Hey, cool beans re: your win.
Sorry to post this here, but I’m assured they’re read it. Do not mean to pull the page in, it was referenced, and, it’s laughable that they’re #ProfessionalVictiming about me being a “bully,” for calling them out for their pathologically abusive unethical and or illegal behavior. What “cause” other than their own self-interest is their collective is championing?
Crystal ball prediction was correct that they donkey was home, did daddy tell her she can’t sue people who write about her own negative truth? Especially one who has taken on a lot bigger than a donkey and her dried-up daddy.
Ahh I’m gonna jus leave this right here: http://imgur.com/a/5rQbO
yo. sorry to be a creeper (not really). looked at your ‘gram and i am digging your shoes. that is all.
Aww thank you! I never really know what to post on there.
Wait a minute. Winchester, is that your instagram account and you are ML and live in that town noted there? If so, I also live there/here. I’ve been an avid lurker at RBD for at least 2 years but have only posted a few times (under user names related to being disgusted…). LMK if you ever have a local/statewide meetup?
I dont mean to sound like a woo, but the idea if basement dwellers in person gives me a feeling of bad karma,
Its like something that is better left alone, or else there will be a disruption between parallel universes, matter coming into contact with anti matter, etc.
I think there may have been an old star trek where it happened, and it almost deatroyed everything!
I’ve met mcakez (name drop) IRL and have emailed with a couple of other basement-dwellas. So far it’s felt like great karma as far as I can tell.
space time continuum, two kirks
Ughsodisgusted! I didn’t know we lived in the same city! I’ve met two folks from RBD (IRL) and have not been disappointed. They are two of the smartest and witty people I know. I’d be happy to meet up!
I think I am the whore of RBD. I’ve met so many of you I am kind of afraid to list it because I know I will forget someone and feel like a dick. We had a whole big NYC meetup like four years ago, a small SF meet-up, and I did a dust of Europe that included Pearstank, fig, and my graveyard lurking lock-in bottom bitch Helena. Also, Prof and I met in multiple cities AND went to see the Postal Service together.
hashtag no regrets
However, weirdly, I think Widestance and I agree that we probably live within blocks of each other, but never managed to meet up.
OK. I just had my first kitten less than 3 months ago and we are on LOCKDOWN for posting anything to social. I’ve already asked my dad to remove some pictures from his Facebook page. I’m being treated like the bad guy but you know what? My child’s digital safety and right to create his/her own presence is something I’d like to leave up to them once they’re old enough.
What I don’t understand is why Allie and Britt would allow her to a) take pictures with their child and b) not insist that she remove them immediately from any social channels, esp with RBD. I don’t even have a site that reblogs my posts and I still don’t want my child used as a prop on anyone’s social channels. If I were Allie, I’d be raising all hell to have this and any other images of my kid’s face removed ASAP.
i dont like that this pic is up either.jacy, can you block out the kids face maybe?
I wonder if Britt is unaware of RBD or if he has heard of it, thinks it is “just Julia being Julia” when she raves about it, assuming it is half fantasy, like most of her life.
I agree, the kids face should be blurred here.
i have never ever shared my kitten’s photos with anyone in any form other that prints to relatives at holidays and school photo time, and emails to actual known friends. facebook: never, ever, ever. the mommy bloggers who endlessly fauxto op their kittens are stupid and wrong.
I post pictures of my daughter to facebook, to friends only (she is 19 months old now), not very frequently (about once a month).
I also send pictures of her on Whatsapp to family (my sisters & mom) and a handful of very close friends.
What are the downsides of it? (serious question)
I don’t have a lot of FB friends and put pictures of my kid on there uh a lot. I do have my profile on private. IDK, I don’t think it’s that big of a deal. I don’t put embarrassing /questionable stuff like potty training, my kid crying etc.
I agree, it’s totally each parent’s choice. My huscat is only on FB and never posts there (his profile picture is logo from his favorite sports team and has been the same for 2+ year). I work in social media / tech so I have a larger online presence (and a little bit of a bigger opinion on posting to social ;)).
There’s a few ways I look at it (and FYI I NEVER judge other parents for making different choices, this is just what works for us – to each family their own):
1.) they’re my social channels so while my child is obviously a huge part of my life, I’d like to maintain them as my own vs turning them into a never ending barrage of pictures of an – admittedly adorable, but irrelevant to many of my followers / friends – baby. I will post things like baby shoes or a picture with the baby in it but without their face showing to Instagram, I’m a little more likely to post an occasional image of the babe’s face to FB but on full lockdown. Once s/he is old enough to have their own social media accounts, then they can choose what to share (and I will help teach them appropriate vs inappropriate).
2.) It’s a nice way to stay connected to friends and family by exchanging baby pics via email, text or snail mail. Most of the people who would comment on a FB post are not my close friends / family. If they want to know more, they can reach out directly and set up a coffee or catch-up date. If not then it clearly isn’t that important and I don’t care for false platitudes. We know our kid is delicious, I don’t need my ex-boyfriend-from-high-school’s sister to tell me that.
Again, I never ever judge other parents (even those over sharing mom bloggers – they’re the stage parents of the digital age! whatever floats your boat..) but this is just my personal opinion/choice on the matter. 🙂
I’m having a son in three weeks and I completely agree with you. Not one image of my child will be on the inter webs. He can decide on his involvement in this fucking life waster called social media.
Congrats and good luck!!!!
Is that more fake hair/ extensions?
Looks matted and flammable
I’m traveling overseas and internet is spotty, so the picture was taking forever to load. While I waited, I read the comments and thought, ‘surely the picture can’t be that bad.’
it was worse.
Whatever is the opposite of exceeding expectations, that’s what Judya Albertson Bourgeoise does best!
I think all of you who say she looks like a lunatic and a psychiatric patient must be much nicer people than me, because I just look at that picture and think: “CWAA.”
Last post there were some comments about her newly posted BS about companies and parenthood, could someone be a total bunny and repost some of that here for non-FB haters like me? In return, I’ll dance for you.
I don’t think the pumpkins are polished (who does that?) I think Julia just tweaked the pic to look oversaturated/ whatever way she thought it’d make her look best. (Honey, with that onesie, hat, and slippers, that’s not possible)
It’s for sure oversaturated. Noah himself looks a little orange.
She’s also been guilty of turning up the HDR and turning the shadows wayyyy down. Sometimes it will look like she’s been photoshopped into the picture, and that’s why.
Imagine going through all that trouble to make the pumpkins look great and she’s dressed like an escapee from mental institution, except she’s of sound made and actually made a choice to look like that.
There’s a definite reflection, those MF’s look waxed.
Right. Pumpkins harvested early get waxed for preservation, damage-control during shipping, etc. Not unlike cucumbers.
Want to see Judy in a cucumber patch now.
Could they just be wet?
food garden, yes, why are all those wasteful pumpkins on display there when the church could be using that space for housing and food growing for people who need it? why aren’t people living in the church communally? and on the grounds?
You guys don’t get it. She’s a special creative free goddess, unlike her buttoned up, conservative, boring family (ESPECIALLY her LITTLE brother).
Yes, that stupid man, that spent years and years getting his GENIUS CURTAILED by education, all the way to a PhD from MIT.
He is so square and boring and, wait for it!, lives in the suburbs and shows NO INTEREST WHATOSEVER in Burning Man!
He’s only lived in three cities and she’s lived in seven, OKAY????
i worked with a manager whose great burden in life was not doing as well at MIT as his father; a heavy load to carry
Dear Ladies of the Cat,
Just this afternoon I’ve had the marvellous fortune of watching Whit Stillman’s version of “Love & Friendship.” I most highly recommend it as it reminds me of the our scheming Donk of yore. Alas that those halcyon days have passed. Still, we’re most blessed that Donk does not have a youngster in her charge.
Isn’t it glorious? Kate Beckinsale is just amazing.
I rarely laugh aloud anymore, but her delivery of some of those lines. Wow!
Note that the toddler knows the correct way to hold a pumpkin. The real toddler, I mean.
One of her latest scolds is a video about the objectification of women, and how it leads girls to question their self worth.
Julia of the Georgetown sex column and the Condom Fairy costume and the nasty lingerie shoot with cigar chomping gramps. Julia of the Botox and fillers and expiration dates and standing proud in that documentary about young women going under the knife. Julia of the Pepperoni nips and rainbow pasties and all the look-at-me kissy face poses with her fellow woo women.
Donkey, instead of scolding and acting the victim, maybe it’s time to apologize for being part of the problem for the last 15 years?
The same Julie who promoted Tim Sykes’ Miss Penny Stock bikini contest?
“$1700 for a good raping” Judy Albertson?
She is the wooooooorst.
And all those tit-thrusting poses with the padded push-up bras? Retouching all her photos to appear thinner and taller? Wearing tight revealing clothing several sizes too small, and running around in cookie bras as outerwear and midriff tops with spandex tights? Fantasizing about getting nude “boudoir” photos taken?
Shut the fuck up, Donkey.
but it’s not her fault she has to do all those things! SOCIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIETY made her do it!
Julia, you and your woo sisters are still doin’ it for the likes and the male gaze. Though the rainbow onsie in the top photo makes me question that, just a little. Ain’t no one finding that cute or flattering.
She was a victim
The same Julia Allison who has done only a couple of years of part-time work in her entire adult life and thinks other people (men) should pay to support her?
The same Julia Allison who pretended to work in “technology,” yet when asked to shill for Radio Shack phones on a local tv show, didn’t know anything about the products and could only come up with, “Um, this one comes in pink. I hope my boyfriend buys it for me”?
The same Julia Allison who wants to be associated with Silicon Valley, without doing any of the actual work that woman do in Silicon Valley, so she shows up at tech conferences in prom dresses or tutus, with her smallish breasts contorted by a padded push-up bra in order to get attention, and poses with people in business clothes who have actual jobs?
The same Julia Allison who refers to herself and other grown women as “girls”?
The same Julia Allison who couldn’t or wouldn’t buy her own computer, and instead thought an ex-boyfriend “owed” it to her?
The same Julia Allison who wears the logos of her father’s and brother’s colleges?
The same Julia Allison who begged uninterested men to kiss her, even though they refused, and threw herself at them even after they’d said no?
The same Julia Allison who changes her identity for every new guy she has a crush on?
That same feminist?
The same Julia Allison who SWF’ed one of her woo dancer BFFs and then stole her boyfriend without telling her, even stooping so low to allow him to listen in on a phone call the two had about the situation? That feminist? The Julia who emailed a new girlfriend of an ex and revealed she’d slept with the ex while the new couple was dating? That feminist?
The same Julia Allison who had injections on camera is posting a rant where women get injections on camera.
OT- does anyone else here dread filling out the annual performance review, self appraisal, goal setting for next year, etc. ???
i am usually not a procrastinator, but will always look for excuse to put this off forever
God yes. It’s the worst. Especially because I have PTSD from being burned on one where they pulled stuff out of their collective ass to nail me with. But even now that I trust my manager it’s tough because it’s so much BULLSHIT.
Love your new username. I’m going to tell my kids I’m CURATING their candy, not stealing it…….
Stalker is the New Candy Curator. Coming soon.
good manager, no problem. bad manager, problem
think of it as performance art, add a tiara and long gloves.
I loathed them until my favorite manager of all time had us do bi-weekly status reports. He felt it made it asier for everyone to protect themselves during the yearly performance reviews but also keep him in the loop on what we were working on. Two of us LOVED doing them and the rest of my colleagues hated it. The first performance review I had after doing them for a year was so easy. I just had to go through them and cut and paste what I had done. I also realized I had forgotten some of the stuff I had done at the beginning of the year.
YES. SAME. Also, I put everything I do on my calendar.
Yes! I just recycle my old ones with new tweaks.
OT– i have so many mom friends that i currently hate bc of this election season. i live in bumblefuck, smalltown usa. i am ‘that one POC friend.’ i grit my teeth going to playdates and seeing the giant trump signs on their lawns. are my mom frandz secretly racist assholes who think i am somehow ‘below’ them?
Huh. That’s what you get for going to playdates.
i knew i should have encouraged her to have more imaginary friends and less live in the flesh ones.
That’s a damn good question. The best light I can cast them in, they think you’re fine because you’re already here. If they’re women and a Trump supporter they are probably so good at ignoring cognitive dissonance that they are probably not really seeing you clearly at all right now. They’re not thinking “Let’s invite that nice colored family” they see YOU and as far as they think of you they probably bestow upon you honorary whiteness so they can continue to like you. Therefore it’s not even occurring to them that you would be bothered by the Trump signs because heck, you’re a redneck just like them!!
At this point the mind of a Trump supporter is just like bzzt bzzzt with smoke curling up… in other words try not to worry what they think because they are probably not thinking at all. If they were actual active racists, they wouldn’t even have your kids for the playdates in the first place. Since they’re inviting you over, they aren’t considering the implications of the Trump sign+ you.
i am an honorary redneck.
well there ya go…they don’t secretly hate you. You’re one of them!….yay?
i am honored and horrified.
Just pay attention to how your daughter acts when she comes home. You would do that anyway. You got this! It will be fine.
Most people originally supported Trump because they want to keep their guns and they don’t like illegal immigrants and they want manufacturing and coal jobs to come back. Plus they believe Hillary is literally the devil. All the white supremacist and sexual assault shit came later when they were already locked in. Nobody wants to be the first to take down their Trump sign but at this point I doubt anyone is like “Gosh gee golly he sure is a great candidate!”
And there are great things about redneckitude… You’ll never have to raise your own barn again! And the food’s pretty good! And in all seriousness, they can be so neighborly and kind it makes a city person plotz.
Now go forth and ride thy four-wheeler without thine helmet!
“Honored and horrified” is a legitimate response.
From what I hear, a lot of the women (at least) are secretly planning to vote Hillary once they’re in the booth, away from their husbands’ and neighbors’ prying eyes. They may or may not deny doing this until the point of their divorce or death, but a goodly number of them will do it nonetheless.
I know that doesn’t help you very much right now, certainly doesn’t preclude them being racist, and definitely demonstrates their lack of critical understanding of or overall empathy towards your situation, so I’m genuinely sorry you have to go through this at all.
are my mom frandz secretly racist assholes who think i am somehow ‘below’ them?
yes, anyone with a trump sign is
I think the Trump sign effectively precludes secrecy, though.
I grew up in a 99.95% white town, and there was a lot of “he’s one of the good ones” about actual people of color who turned out to not be terrifying stereotypes. The fact that nobody ever met one of the terrifying stereotypes, but only “one of the good ones,” didn’t seem to change the fundamental racism. Sadface.
I’m sorry, i.just.can’t., I am just free-associating about my shitty childhood, and don’t mean to cast aspersions on your neighbors. No buzzkill intended.
also, “one of the good ones” means continuing to be a racist asshole despite the evidence of a decent human being in front of you.
also, jews in red states, where religion means worship republican jesus or else.
no, they don’t
their stereotypes are formed mostly by what they see on the news and in pop culture. of course it is skewed and narrow, but it’s all they have to go on.
if you are a decent person, they’ll judge you for who you are. if fact, you may be helping to educate them and opening their eyes for the better, just by being yourself
unfortunately, it sounds like you are the one who is stereotyping them and judging them just because they vote a certain way. it’s a two way street
i had to think about that– if im the one being judgey. there have been a lot of instances that bugged me. ie- ‘your accent is great! (i was born here) ‘i dont eat stuff thats weird’ (referring to my cultures food) ‘do you speak spanish?’ (i am asian)
but i do want to be open and let people into my life and not have them think my food is weird etc. i just want to be a normal person in my white AF town ya know?!
white people are normal, everyone else is black, mexican or a foreigner: this is true in the us, outside major cities
I disagree strongly. If you vote for Trump you are racist; that is not a stereotype.
and a misogynist and an idiot
Voting a certain way suggests you support a certain set of values.
If you are supporting a candidate that, like Trump, is openly racist and wants to bring back religious tests for all sorts of things, the Constitution be damned, it is pretty safe to assume such voters support or practice some kind of bigotry.
How deep that bigotry goes, or whether they will openly express it in your presence, it’s anybody’s guess.
this, exactly this
Yeah, you can stereotype someone based on race. You can’t stereotype someone based on THEIR IDEAS. Calling someone a racist because they support a racist (who is almost completely incompetent to hold the job he’s applying for) IS JUST LOGIC.
Sometimes the woos are so entertaining, in a “can’t-make-this-shit-up” kinda way. Really, professional comedy writers looking to satirise this scene would just have to copy and paste. There’s no room for improvement.
For example, over at Jahhhhsssss Magic’s FB page, the following quote…
About a week ago Ro and I cut a trip to Kauai short to offer a musical gift to about 700 women who had gathered to celebrate and cultivate creativity with Brit Morin at her annual Brit + Co RE:MAKE Summit (where we took this awesome pic). When I got on stage she asked me what type of instrument I’d be using and I said, “Well, I’ll be playing my ukelele, but the real instrument I’ll be working with is courage.”
Christopher Guest would have a field day.
i love him, but how can you parody what is already insane?
True, did you see Mascots? I just couldn’t get into it for some reason.
missed that one
I found it way too jokey and forced. Much more like FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION than WAITING FOR GUFFMAN, and that’s not a favorable comparison.
I imagine the Judy Albertson version would be that she would be using her animal body to clap her hands while singing loudly, with grace, but that her real instrument was her genius and exuberant embodiment of love.
Or, to translate, her body has The Clap and she will stroke face and herp-derp while uh-huh-huh’ing.
She cut a Hawaii trip short to do a free concert for a bunch of scrapbookers? What a sucker.
Yeah, right, No way did she cut her trip short in order to play ukelele at an overhyped craft fest. Jess just wants the world to know that she has an OMG WALLET who takes her on trips to OMG HAWAII. So transparent, so pathetic.
She gave them a “Musical gift.” I wonder if it involved fermented beans. That would have sounded better.
I’m guessing her “gift” would be described as less of a “gift” and more of a “gRift” if one were to ask the attendees.
OT: Did anyone see Randi Z on the Today Show talking about her new PBS Sprout show? I can’t imagine she does anything but run and hide if she has to see Julia in public.
Heard Randi on NPR this afternoon.
My son rigged my husband’s phone to autocorrect “beer” to “fart.”
My nephew did autocorrect on my brother’s phone. Homework=torture and chores=child labor.
“Investors” (wallet hunting)
“cut a trip to kauai short” = “we wanted to go to kauai but couldn’t get anyone to pay for it so we didn’t have anything else to do so we did this”
Also, “My sister goddess Rainbow told me about this grift opportunity only two days before the event so I really had to hustle so that Rainbow could collect her finder’s fee from OMG Brit.”
If there were 700 attendees there, I’ll eat my cat. Not buying it. (Also, exclusively women? ’cause crafting’s a gal thing? And the subliminal mission statement is: Marry rich, ladies, and you too can spend your idle hours creating cupcake-shaped pizzas and pizza-shaped cupcakes til the cows come home?)
from used yoga mats and pantyhose
Also pot holders
The irony is that her dumb business for dumb bunnies is doing fairly well, whereas his Path thing was a total bust and drew ridicule from all quarters.
also sloppy and unethical, with the spamming of contacts
Lunatic is right. Last night’s series of manic posts went up at 3 am or 5 am, depending on whether she’s up pacing around the Marin stall or at the lakefront retirement home.
Get help, Donkey.
Hey all, long time lurker occasional commenter, with an OT question. I’ve heard the term “angel investor” only around here and during a job interview today. Is Angel investing a good thing or…? The company relies on their angel investors . Any insight from the basement would be appreciated.
Thank you, Grifty!
Those are often buzz words to try and get people to work for less (promise of stock options but with a 3 of 4 reverse split – worthless). If you have a dummy email send it along and I’ll look into the company for you.
Fortunately (I think) they only brought up the angel investors when I asked how they make money (they provide fundraising software for non-profits), with no talk (yet) of stock options. So hopefully not worrisome, but ‘angel investor’ does have a stigma attached to it for me because of da donkey.
Winchester-thanks, I will reach out to you if I get to that point where I need yo skillz!
If this is the company that rhymes with Fiji Talc, they are fine for money, as one of the founders comes from a family with an immense fortune.
Donks gave a plug for Choad’s set in NYC and got one like.
Was it from Wahli?
That is thucceth!!
OT: did any catladies see Lady Gaga’s performance on SNL last night?
Taking a cue from Donkey’s BM self-wedding, she was wearing the same geriatric diaper but in silver instead of white, and also a pink cowboy hat!!
Does she read here too?
I want to like her new album, since it seems to have more going on than her last few attempts, and I’m a Mark Ronson fan. But it’s kind of eh for me.
I hate that she always feels the need to attach some tragic story to the stuff she does, now it’s her aunt Joanne, before it was her dead grandmother, or sexual assault victims, or eating disorders or… whatever.
She is like the woos, she doesn’t seem to be able to do anything just for fun.
her voice is amazing; too alt-country for me in this incarnation
Agree — gave it another listen while I cleaned up the apartment today. Kind of a poor man’s Stevie Nicks vibe that just didn’t work. And I love me some Stevie Nicks.
She changed her profile picture to the most fakey “I’m in nature with horse” thing. Full makeup, hair done, demure looking down. She’s such a joke.
After this she posts about a “beloved former partner” losing his first child.
Oh look, it is her with her cousin, Spirit.
Oh no. Is it Pancakes? I know they are expecting soon. Disgusted that she would post something so personal for all her random “followers” to see.
After checking Twitter I’m quite sure it’s not them. Sorry for mentioning any names but I bet others assumed the same. CWAA!
As soon as I read this today, alarm bells went off in my head. That seems like such a psycho thing to do, and so insensitive. Of course, why would I expect more from the Donk?
STILL IN EACH OTHER’S LIVES AS PEOPLE
Ugh. I feel sick. This is reason #7589389473 why people think you’re an asshole, Donkey. WTF
It just shot up to reason number one for me.
yup. same here
gross. you dont put shit up like that on social media, julia fucking allison. ugh.
Honestly to exploit someone else’s pain, not as a shared experience, but solely for the purpose of letting them know she knew (and found out) is probably the most vile thing she’s done. And this is a woman who scheduled a known child rapist to officiate her self-wedding.
Hey asshole, take that post down you disgusting parasite.
Who, besides Derp, was ever her “partner”?
I’m not even going to speculate. They way she habitually lies, exaggerates, and distorts the truth, it could be anyone. She’s a relentless stalker so it’s not necessarily someone she remained close to.
WTF IS WRONG WITH HER?????
Plus, she’s got a “sister” who is a few weeks away from giving birth. The last thing an expectant mom needs to read is a tearjerk story about a stillborn baby! I hope Nisha blocks her. What.A.Cunt.
a friend lost a fullterm apparently healthy baby a few weeks before birth. she was shattered. two healthy toddlers now, but, murder, bloody murder, for posting that about someone.
The VERY FIRST thing you learn about horses is: Always stand on the left, lead from the left, mount from the left. Always, unless there’s a very good reason not to.
Even I knew that, and I haven’t been on a horse more than a handful of times in my life. But Donkey must position herself to emphasize her “good” side.
Paging JP… Happy birthday!!! Thinking of you and hoping this next year treats you well.
Awwwwwwwwwww it’s papa jp’s born day??? HAPPY BIRTHDAY YOU BITTER OLD QUEEN.
your favorite 😛
P.S. Happy, Happy, JP.
Happy birthday, JP!
I’m just gonna leave this here…
“serving snacks” while everyone else does the hard work of breaking down the camp
Breaking down the camp is the job of the masculine! The feminine dress up as Hooters waitresses and distribute snacks, since apparently these folks ideas of gender roles haven’t progressed past the 1950s.
A hooters outfit would look better than this ensemble.
At least Hooters waitresses have no illusions about the job they’re doing.
Also they actually work
The worst. These woos with their utter hypocrisy are the absolute worst. Julia has the temerity to post about feminism and women’s rights – but this – this makes her happy. Prancing around and *literally* waiting on men. I mean, fine, you do you, but how can she turn around and lecture others on gender roles?????
Wating on men does not make Julia happy.
Posing for fauxtograph makes Julia happy.
Posing for fauxtograph waiting on men
Noticed that Billow’s has a baby boy … I’m wondering if that’s who jellybelly was aiming those recent scoldy child-rearing posts at … couldn’t see where Donk had ‘liked’ any pics of the cutie pie.
Also, was there ever discussion here of Prop Thing’s dad’s criminal inclinations (see the wiki entry on Perry Weitz)? Cracks me up that they’re all that & were still too good for a donkey.
Could be. Julia tried to Yoo-hoo Billow a few posts back (the one about amazing moms) and got zero response.
Mazel tov to Billow! She seems like a good egg.
Agreed & mad respect to them for making a living being foodies (my dream job).
Guess you don’t have enough watercress experience 😉
Where’s Gilly been for a week?
On a well deserved vacation.
Ah, good to know. Hoped she wasn’t sick or anything negative.
Just checking in and fuming over Noodles’s RBD whine as means to a Shanti-esque grift!
THESE PEOPLE ARE HORRIBLE!
Nisha is talking about all of you angry sad-sort of adults on her FB
And it all ends in a shill for her latest grift. Dear Greg, I cannot.
amazeballs, using this site as part of the shill, to play the part of a star with so many fans/haters interested in her… more cray than most of those others things they all do, this shows great vacuity, preying on sisters, wow
Hilareballz how many confess to perusing the site / sight / cite. *ahem* Maybe they comment here too & that’s why Donk’s fecebook pg gets 0 action?
If I had a “hate site” I wouldn’t want my “friend” blabbing about it and drawing attention to it in a public forum, never mind using it for her own self promotion. These people are gross.
Eh, if I had confided to my sister about my relationship problems with Tim Ferriss, I wouldn’t want her to publicly crowd source a couples counselor on FB. Using Julia’s pain to grift seems like fair payback.
So for only $1,495 she’ll teach us how to not be sad, angry, basement dwelling haters?
Same thing Jena la balde did.
the comments there are even more hilarious…they are sorry she is going through this, dealing with such harshness, sorry to hear of your struggles, even mother theresa has haters (sorry Alex Cockburn), etc etc…. now she wishes she were donk
She compares a couple of RBD posts about her vacuous self to learning disabled and LGBT populations and other marginalized groups? WTF Noodles?! “Victim” becomes you.
*I* like Noodles, for the most part, but this: “All of these comments were made while I was pregnant, which was unfortunately the first time I paid any mind to the site.” isn’t sitting quite right w/ me … can’t a mod pls check when she first came onsite, or is that asking the impossible?
Agreed. I could have sworn she had a full on conversation with this group prior to being pregnant or even before.
She did. I remember it.
I think she first came here during the very early days of her pregnancy. I remember she got particularly sensitive about the fact that I called her and Jena baby-crazy. When she announced her oopsie pregnancy a couple of months later, it was clear why my comment had struck such a nerve.
She actually came on here a long time ago to white knight donks. The moderators can find it. So that statement of hers is not true.
The cultural appropriation stuff is just laughable. Look at the Kittay’s wedding events she was part of.
Why do they insist on using the words, “creating space,” or “holding space?” It’s the same damn thing as “that empty chair over there.”
because they are idiots and grifters
are we modding ourselves? Mods? Overseers? OVERSEERS??? Where are you??? Don’t tell me they signed up for the whaterever healings.
OT six head might be preggers already
Are you referring to that tell-tale picture of deadbeat dad fondling her belly?
The very one. Danger. More parasites.
Or maybe trying to manifest it through reiki
“I NEVER READ THERE”
Sounds just like a Donkey. Gross.
I’m not sure what she’s even talking about. Yes, people were surprised by her whirlwind new romance and pregnancy, but I remember people speaking very positively about how they wished her well. I don’t remember any posts criticizing her appearance while pregnant. She always looks very pulled together and seems very happy. I know there were a couple of posts about cultural appropriation, but they all do that. I don’t remember anyone saying that she wasn’t going to be a good mother. I think she’s exaggerating all of this greatly.
Nisha Moodley your very public Burning Man post was reblogged where I questioned the decision to attend Burning Man, subjecting an unborn child to the risk of contracting asthma or valley fever due to the dust & spores in the desert, needlessly and selfishly putting your needs ahead of the unborn child’s. Clearly, you prefer the role of #ProfessionalVictim, where you’ve manipulated facts, not allowing for context, and are unwilling or unable to hear anything that deviates for your very myopic, lacking in self-awareness “narrative.” Selflessness is a sign of maturity. I do not wish you or your child anything but the best in health & happiness and, the hope that future decisions will reflect the possibility of positive growth that puts the needs of others ahead of your own, which despite the words of your many misguided peers, is truly what makes for an evolved individual. Melayna
This is correct- the criticism from here came from some who questioned whether or not it was healthy for a pregnant woman to be at BM. If I recall correctly, she brought up that very issue on her fb page. There were several commenters here that said she was fine to go; others did not.
I don’t remember if there was criticism of her pregnant body but I do recall some calling her out on the overly sexy pose which reeked of trying too hard. Feminism is hard y’all.
And, yeah manipulating events to overly victimize yourself to shill your so called “workshop” (or whatever the hell it is you’re selling) on being a strong woman is messy as hell.
Let me point out this was posted for realz over there…
And keen observation above… no word of mishmash of feathers and dance and clothes and etc etc of the realm of “cultural appropriation”
Yes I remember now and I think I questioned that those spores, etc could cross the placental barrier. I would be more concerned about dehydration or accidents or some medical emergency.
We are not one monolithic entity here. There are many different people with differing viewpoints. But the one thing I think we all agree is that this coaching business most of them do is bullshit. There are tons of deserving and legitimate women’s organizations with trained professionals who don’t feel the need to charge exorbitant fees just to blow sunshine up each others’ skirts. You want to empower women, then stop taking so much of their money just to give them faux-spiritual pep talks in exotic locales.
A “health scientist” — which must be the woo equivalent of a LOLyer — has white-knighted Nisha, claiming he’s never heard such a nutty thing.
Perhaps he might want to investigate further? http://abcnews.go.com/Health/AllergiesNews/story?id=4896102
pregnant at burning man = stupid
Donkey will be doing it at 2017 BM, trust and thrust.
her only audience
Hi, Noodles followers! Spend your money on something actually useful, like home improvements or a community college course.
Seriously noodles writing about hate sites, truth isn’t hate. What is wrong with these people scamming her way again. Judgement snark bye Felicia do something with your life. Seriously attached to people with no self esteem with no idea what to do with their life. You get paid by telling women they are not worthy to find their path that paying you is the key to freedom, noodles
How predatory is that approach, you can criticize the media for using sex and paranoia to sell and here we have so many woo grifters selling doubt and inadequacy. Like I’ve really needed someone who “just read a lot of self help books” to change my life (only $2000! hugs extra)…who else do we know that reads A LOT of self help books…hmmm. Oh yeah, Julia, I bet she’s real qualified to be leading life changing “workshops” or whatever the heck their product is. Lemme go to a scummy bankrupt credit card abusing “lawyer” to get financial advice in the name of empowerment while trying to rip off my own parents of their retirement! Yeah no, you don’t take advice from a fat personal trainer.
actual therapy with actual therapists with actual credentials and knowledge, vs grifting grifters in feathers and glitter lol lol lol shut up woos, you are stupid frauds
Drumming up drama to shill, suppose she learned that from her sisterhoodfriendshipwombyn Shanti and Jackles.
Is being pregnant not drawing enough positive attention that she suddenly feels so incredibly attacked so so suddenly by quoting “criticism” from so long ago…like BEFORE she was pregnant? Lie much?
“WHO ATTACKS A PREGNANT WOMAN?! OMG I AM A LIFE CARRYING VESSEL HOW DARE YOU CRITICIZE ANYTHING IN MY STATE” Newsflash kiddo, being a mom doesn’t change the fact you can still be a shady liar that uses convenient excuses to drum up attention (cough cultural appropriation cough so guilty cough)
No shame at all when you’re a grifty grifter selling their soul and friendship for rent money.
Adding to that, how do such “healed” and “empowered” women feel so ATTACKED by some comment on their thighs that they cry into a pillow.all day? Seriously? I’ve been told all sorts of things about my appearance, and omg many racist things as well. Never once did I spend a day crying about it, but you know what did hurt? When someone criticized my attitude and character. Because some of it was fucking true and I didn’t want to see it. It’s easy to blame an OMG BULLY for bad feelings but grab your ovaries and get your ass in gear. If people are calling you out for your unsavory activities (mainly incredibly horrible and atrocious things Julia has done to So MANY people over the years…she’s such a “victim” of “hate” amirite?) and you choose to dwell on the superficial to drum up sympathy…what is it that you are selling here? The constant reminder and preaching of “women r strong yo” and I dont see it from that sad shill post. You sooooo don’t care about it until you do and you come back for more, you know why? Because you like being the center of attention, any attention.
No I don’t think I want to join sisterhood with someone who is a hypocrite partaking in cultural appropriation herself and not break ties with those who do so daily. Truth hurts sometimes, just because your feelings hurt doesn’t make it any less true. Enjoy your 15 seconds on here, maybe you’ll get a few dozen more Likes and a few more fawning comments on how pretty you are (because thats all that matters as women apparently).
See the funny thing about this litttle “hate site” is that no one is here for personal gain, we aren’t looking for “followers” and “likes” and branding ourselves. We don’t care about popularity, I have enough people in my life that are awesome and enjoy each other immensely and the folks here are really fucking supportive and wise. And I don’t have to go to some mountain lodge for $4k and sing kumbaya with Jaaaahhhhssss or whatever for that kind of comraderie. You’d like us too if you actually saw the truth behind Julia and the destruction left in her wake and how so many of us had personal dealings with her and have found comfort in kinda like a support group.
you are KILLING it…. PREACH!!!
Who has time to cry all day? A PARASITE THAT DOESN”T WORK.
Funny how so many of them pull out the “jus’ jellus” card too. If they only knew who was posting here they’d shit gluten-free Twinkies.
jellus of unemployed grifter feather glitter cultural appropriation fools? lol lol lol
you jellis hater. you wish you had a sisterhood coaching grift, or bath towel curtains!!!!!!!!!! imagine the success!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My first guffaw was at :29. I couldn’t actually finish.
undx’d bo-burnham-wannabe ?
Where’s the greg damn car door?
bless his heart.
I hope to god he’s just super high and has no self awareness, because otherwise he’s got something serious.
“Pimp Lion” is so good, I had to check whether it came from us.
That puffy cheek beard reminds me of
I do love you for this.
I’ve been holding space for that love.
She looks like Elmer Fudd in that damn hat…sorry Elmer.
OT (or is it???) has anyone checked out “Haters Back Off” on Netflix? The opening scene reminds me of JA singing in those wack videos.
Tried. Impossible to watch. Worst thing I’ve (n)ever seen.
“Black Mirror”, OTOH, good greg almighty, what brilliant mind fuckery.
the jon hamm episode last year in particular
Sorry – off topic, but have you guys been following Patton Oswalt’s documentation on his social media of his grief over the sudden loss of his wife a few months ago? He writes very eloquently about love and loss:
Some. Hit the wall on NYT & need to clear cookies or wait it out, but this is already bookmarked from when I saw an earlier tweet / retweet:
Olivia Nuzzi @Olivianuzzi 2h2 hours ago
Patton Oswalt is the only public figure I can think of whose overwhelming quality seems to be genuine goodness
I agree w/ that sentiment. Love him in YA & on KoQ too.
Yes, Brayella. He seems like such a kind, thoughtful person
