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 […]

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 […]

But Does It Spark Joy?

By this time, and hell, who the fuck knows who is reading this… Is the human race still a thing, or are you decoding this on some non-carbon based life form planet somewhere unfathomable lightyears away?… Who the fuck knows? By this time, you probably are familiar with Marie Kondo, the Japanese decluttering/organizational skill development […]

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 […]

You Know What?

I am watching the shit happening at the bird feeder, and watching woodchucks run all over and realizing those fuckers climb trees, and jump, and swim, and are incredibly agile for looking like creatures an incredibly uncreative, uncoordinated child made out of clay and dryer lint. Plus, they can contract rabies (rarely seems to happen, […]
