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 […]

The Good Old Days and Other Bullshit

Four years ago I saw a person with a bumpersticker that said “Hindsight 2020” and I thought, yeah, pretty much. I also remember the first Trump/Pence bumpersticker I saw on a car. It was parked a few cars down from us at the parking garage in Chinatown. We were there for the Taiwan 10/10 day […]

I Love Nature, I Just Hate Outside

Nothing like a big face full of pollen to make you rethink how cool those cherry blossoms are… Allergies have always been my hell to bear, because I am the sort of person who found out that Easter lilies make me violently, hit the floor ill when I walked into the library one spring day […]

Plan For the Fan

It was funny when we were buying the house because… well, nothing was funny because I really didn’t want to move, so I was a fucking ray of sunshine about it really. But it came to pass that I found two streets that seemed to rarely have houses go up for sale (these streets connect) […]

What Did a Water Park Ever Do to Me? (Or… Stay Home, Dammit)

If you know me, you know that I am a tremendous fucking killjoy. No, really, I am. The good part of this is that during this pandemic, I am adjusting pretty easily to the fact that it is the accepted and smiled upon and¬†morally correct thing to do to just keep your ass home. Home […]

Time Is Linear, History Is Cyclical

And we are all dumbasses. I’ve seen, more than a few times in the past two years or so, someone say, “If you ever wondered what the people in 1930s-era Berlin were thinking, now you know” or the variation of this: “If you ever wondered what you would have done then, it’s exactly what you […]

Keeping It Moving

Whenever I open my browser it shows me the recent links (so yeah, Chrome, I know) and I feel like if I keep the link to this up at the top, I will see that fucker every time I go on to do something else and feel guilt and keep updating. On the one hand, […]

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 […]

Resistant is Futile

I know, that’s not the saying, right? Hear me out… Being resistant to something is not a guarantee. I think the only exception to this is… remember the old Saturn sedans? Like many people of a certain age, this was the first new car Paul and I bought. It was the first car we owned […]

All Bed Sides Are Wrong

I had something else I was going to say today, and if I manage to remember what exactly it was, maybe I’ll start to put it down. Our oldest pug, Walt, has seizures. Not horrible ones, like our first peke, Monster, did… they’re subtle as they happen, but they result in his clearly not being […]
