I Grew Up in New Hampshire and This Post Officially Makes Me a Pinko

Dearest America, I’ve been poking around of various travel forums and it’s interesting. Actually, it’s always eye opening. I’m always taken aback when I hear about how litter free the United States is from people in Europe, and I’m always really taken aback when I hear about how litter free over and above that Boston […]

I’m Not Mad, America

I am just disappointed. Nah, fuck that. I’m mad. I’m pissed as hell, and I… it really is less a question of whether the Asshat in Chief is going to do what he says… Is it a bullshit, completely unconstitutional thing that is going to fuck the country up, designed to kill black and brown […]

A Bit of Obit

Know what sucks about getting older? Everyone around you dies. Know what sucks worse? Not getting to be old. It’s the inbetween stuff that doesn’t suck that you need to remember to hold on to, everyone. It’s easy to forget. We all do. All the time. Remember and clutch your loved ones figuratively and literally […]

Things of No Import

But fuck it, let’s say stuff. Today I walked Bruce and we saw three deer. One let us get really close, like… “Deerfriend, you ought to be wearing a damn mask” close. That was kind of weird, but at least she wasn’t the one with antlers, so… (and I understand¬†completely that she has teeth and […]

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 […]

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 […]

Ostrich Act

I don’t like going to the dentist. My dentist is fine, he’s actually adorable, and he has a pug, and I console myself with the idea that he’d rather be home with his pug as opposed to shoving fillings in my teeth as much as I’d rather be home with mine. But still, we find […]

I Hate Coming Up With Titles

Putting a title on a post is like the fucking lamest thing ever. I don’t know why it’s so hard. Even when I write things with a point, it isn’t as though it’s really easy or self evident what the headline should be. If I had to sum up and title, say, the press conference […]

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 […]
