Howdy, GT. Sorry I’ve been away, life gets chaotic here and there.
In the aftermath of last night’s senseless massacre, Clark County Commission Chair Steve Sisolak has set up a GoFundMe for the victims. You can find it here.
God, this breaks my heart. Active shooters at a country music festival in Vegas. I just have no words...who the fuck does this?
It’s been a few months of me being busy, so I wanted to pop in and say thank you to everyone who replied to this post of mine. I have been doing much better since then, and even if I didn’t talk to you via comments at that time, I appreciated all of your input.
I saw on my big sis’ Facebook page that she went to the March on Washington. I just talked to her a little bit ago on this phone, and she said it was ‘quite the experience’. She didn’t have one of the hats (she’s not really a hat person), but my incredibly awesome brother-in-law was with her, and it made me even…
I really hate having Trump supporting parents. Every chance they get, they go on and on about how horrible Obama has been and how things will be so much better with a billionaire businessman running the country (le barf). The one that’s especially annoying? Mom talking about how the crowd in attendance at the ‘Make…
So back just after the election I mentioned in here that I was writing to my congressperson about the ACA. Well, I got a reply back last month (I’ve been busy with work, so I didn’t get to posting it sooner), and I thought I would share with you all. I still don’t know what to fully make of this, but at least I got…
Just a quick post to say Happy New Year to everyone here. And even if I don’t talk much around these parts, thanks for being the group y’all are. Much love from me to everyone for 2017. <3
First off, howdy, GT. I’m doing better than I was a few days ago. I can give more of a write-up later.
Man, it’s been a hell of a week, and it’s only Monday.
These came across my radar. The points they raise seem good on the surface (and they could potentially assuage my concerns if they work). What do you all think?
I don’t know if this will do anything. But I can’t just sit down, do nothing, and hope things will change. I feel very strongly about the Affordable Care Act and how it has helped people, and I hate that the GOP is talking about killing it so cavalierly. I know so many people who are worried about losing their…
As a bit of background, I was a poll worker yesterday. Specifically, I was an Assistant Inspector for my assigned precinct. This was something that happened yesterday that (while it didn’t necessarily piss me off) it bothered me. Politics-wise, I hold to two rules:
I’m now the proud wielder of an IUD. Still, holy hell was it a ride to get one. I’m not sure how a/typical my story is, but I figure it can’t hurt to write about it.
I wish I were popping back in here with happier news first (I’ll probably have better news after this weekend...busy busy!), but I wanted to signal boost this for a friend. His kitten is in bad shape, and they’re on disability/fixed income so the vet bills would eat a chunk out of their living money.
So my parents have the RNC on (or ‘Confirmation Bias Con’ as I think of it), and I was sitting out in the family room sewing while Melania Trump gave her speech. It really bothered me how much Megyn Kelly, Brett Baier, Tucker Carlson, and the other folks on that panel kept bringing up how beautiful she was. In spite…
I simplified this a fair amount due to it being morning and me being a bit tired. But I would really like this argument to die, please. (x-post of my comment on the Slot article.)
that makes them such condescending douches?
Hey, all. I know it’s been a while, life was keeping me busy. But I could use an outlet for a time.
Sorry it’s been a while, the writing’s been keeping me busy. I’m doing pretty well so far; got added to a client’s list (which means more work from that client here and there), and a veteran of the site gave me pointers on improving my profile.
