I am so, so sick over the tax cuts bullshit and I don’t even know what to do except curl up in my office and cry. I work with non-profits for older adults, as I’ve said before, and this bill is going to hurt older adults so much if the PAYGO kicks in with the deficit increase (and everyone else too!!, but this is the…
Is there anyone lurking who needs commenting privs? I can’t grant author privs since I’m not a mod, but if you’re in the grays for GT comments, please comment here and unless you’re a total troll, I’ll ungray. I don’t always remember to click on read pending for comments, so I miss gray people a lot, and I’m sure I’m…
I would like to take a moment to express my sincere gratitude that I live in a big American city where IUDs are not considered murder by the vast majority of physicians and where hormones for gender transitions will be prescribed, and my condolences to those of you who live in towns where that is not the case.
Pleasantly telling people (generally self-identified men on Lifehacker) you’re going to leave the online conversation... and getting the Kinja notifications from their comments after you say that. They get so angry! How dare you have better things to do! It’s so satisfying to watch them try to provoke you into…
Trying to win some fucking minds over on FB after I’ve seen one too many of my (white) in-laws post bullshit yesterday and today who are NOT vets:
I am so fucking amused right now. These two men seem to have taken my Lifehacker account of manspreading on airplanes personally. I am a “passive-aggressive shitheel,” apparently, for not asking two men with headphones on to move their legs out of MY middle seat space. (Thanks, cheap-ass work!) Instead, I asserted…
So I have the task of explaining the Senate ACA repeal bill to my national association, and I’m basically sitting on my hands trying not to type “THIS SHIT IS PRETTY MUCH THE SAME SHIT AS THE OTHER SHIT WE WERE GIVEN”
I need a happy things post! Everything feels so bleak and it’s raining here in DC and ew. So, share happy pictures and happy stories and such.
This doesn’t even count pregnant people and many of the other pretty bogus “pre-existing conditions” we saw in the pre-ACA years, since they wouldn’t be in the CMS Chronic Conditions Data Warehouse. Because they’re not really health “conditions.”
Suck it, Chaffetz. Do we think he saw the writing on the wall or what?
I meant to update you all on the super low energy situation.
Laugh instead of crying, folks.
So I saw my favorite NP at my primary care yesterday AM. She thinks it’s either a Vitamin D deficiency (less likely since I take supplements), hypothyroid (more likely), or if not physical, that my meds have crapped out and I’m starting to get depressed and need to move up my psychiatrist appointment. She said it …
As I commented:
But talking on the phone, for work, with someone who seems completely uninterested in what you’re saying despite you offering them assistance on a project they’re working on really makes my anxiety flare.
Anyone ever have a comment blowwwwww up? I dashed off a quick comment over at Lifehacker on the “Rule of Three” thing, and now I have almost 300 stars on it. I think my previous most-starred comment maybe had a dozen stars. What the fuck, guys. I had no idea?! It’s kind of freaking me out. Also, you’d think LH would…
So, if there’s interest, I will post photos, but I was wondering—would anyone be interested in some nice suiting pieces from Talbots? I’ve lost weight and they’re too big for me now. I have:
CW: weight loss and calories with numbers, etc.
CW: lots of numbers on calories, weight, etc.
