Big Thoughts Dear America

Dear USointoelderAbuse,

Dear America, I am going to admit something really uncomfortable. In some ways, I really can relate to the Orange Guy in the Oval Office. I bet I would like the meatloaf at the White House. I’m unsteady on my feet. I make way less sense when I talk than when I write (I doubt […]

Dear America

I was led to believe there would be punch and pie. I’m not the only one. I was led to believe there would be punch and pie, and not just for those who showed up, because ultimately,¬†everyone would show up in the sense that they were able. I was led to believe that people had […]

And it is creepy as fuck, but also, holy shit, a miracle. We […]

Privilege

If you’re looking at the title of this post and think “Holy shit, that escalated quickly…” yeah, well, life comes at you fast. Heh heh heh. This is how my brain works now. I don’t know as it always did. Probably. I think I had more fucks to give about hiding the fact back in […]

Well, this is awkward

You know, I tried to pick up blogging again a few months ago and then some unspeakable shit happened on the host account and it all disappeared, which is dumb and I sure hope the hackers have a fuckton of fun with my incoherent ramblings and some stuff Paul had up (which was arguably more […]
