Stop. Take a breath. Realize you are okay, okay? I was over at Mama Coffee Chat (Ang's blog) and read that she is doing this 30-day writing challenge. I thought it might be fun. Living through a pandemic has been an experience - mostly a hunt for basic necessities because people have gone a little … Continue reading 30 Day Writing Challenge – and Pandemic Rant
Lately, I do a lot of shopping. Meaning: I drive from one store to another hoping to find bread, beans, disinfecting wipes (for basic household clean up), toilet paper, paper towels, multi-surface cleaner, and butter. These are all items that have been disappearing from store shelves, along with pasta. Pasta. I already have pasta. Everyone … Continue reading Target Vs. Walmart
Woo, let's celebrate the fact there was this awesome HR 6201 Bill passed in Congress. It is aptly titled, Families First Coronavirus Response Act. (Oh yeah, still needs to get through the Senate.) I began skimming the bill, and then began to slowly realize... You have to have a family with kids first, and only … Continue reading We’re Saved! This is Why We Need #Emergency UBI
Are you a fan? Do you oscillate between fictional characters? Do you love one day, and hate another? Do you think you know more than that other guy? Do you like this photo? I do. I've decided to start writing about fandom. It's something near and dear to my heart because I, like many … Continue reading Fan Base – Part 1 – a Look at General Hospital
The Jester I sat back to consider the time I’d spent on jestering “Play me a tune,” they’d state and I played along Watch me dance, sing along with my song Of course, they always did as I said Some didn’t play along But that only enhanced my song When others listened and felt enthronged … Continue reading The Jester – A Poem, and Witcher
The Presidential race has dwindled down to a race against the 78-year-old man, and the 77-year-old man, and the 73-year-old man, and a lone woman of 38-years-old that nobody seems to notice is still running for President. [DISCLAIMER: YES, THIS POST WILL BE A LITTLE RANTY ON THIS INTERNATIONAL WOMAN'S DAY, AND I DON'T EVEN … Continue reading Three Old Guys and a Babe
So, we had a debate. It was hosted by MSNBC (Minions Sold No-Questions-Asked to Billionaires Corporation). It is common knowledge that the DNC changed the rules to accommodate Bloomberg being on that stage. Where was Tulsi? She deserved to be there, but they had Klob and Bloomberg instead. Where was Tom Steyer? Never … Continue reading Danger Zone – The Brawlin’ Debate!
And so, if you've read the news lately you have noticed someone else dropped out the 2020 Presidential race - what they like to call "suspending" a campaign. Why do they even call it that? He quit. There was no suspension. At first, I was angry. I called Andrew Yang a fuckin wuss! He just... … Continue reading Sigh… Andrew Yang is Out… or?
Yang said the most substantive things during the debate, and again had the least amount of speaking time. I understand. He was also not well during that debate and it was obvious he wasn't feeling well. The others said nothing new. I won't even mention them except in passing because I'm so tired of listening … Continue reading Finally, a Debate with Andrew Yang
