This has never happened to me: yesterday, I was on a conference call with all women. One was my client, one was an electrical engineer, one was a plan expediter, one was a construction manager/representative/something, and one was an architect. <3 <3 <3 <3 It was so productive and without interruption!
The world will never know, but I’m pleased about these two things:
Once a week or so, I get totally scrambled by a news cycle and so yesterday has my brain all full of bees and nothing useful.
This is a strange day but here I am at work. It’s <2 weeks until I plan on putting in my notice. My most recent grievance:
I have not gotten through all of this, but it’s enormously informative so I wanted to share. There is a brief explanation of the ongoing pursuits to sue Trump over the emoluments clause, and here is the list of conflicts and each of their explanations. It makes me simultaneously nauseous, angry, and energized. (ETA -…
My husband and I are doing big spring (summer) cleaning this weekend and I go through this every year. How the fuck do any of you people just work being a clean person into your life? He and I are not gross, but we are not habitually clean. We leave shit all over the place and when the house is a mess it’s a huge…
No? Great, you can read my thoughts about it! Also, note about healthcare at the end of the post too. I have thoughts:
I caught myself this morning wondering what it must be like for Trump’s super secret spray tan technicians (I’m of the opinion that he both tans in a bed and then gets a spray to top it off).
So I’m having a week of family visits. My family is...energetic. I was out and about with some of my one million cousins (of which I am the oldest by far at age 32) in this town our parents grew up in, and not 20 minutes after I leave them, driving “home” (to my other side grandparents’ house), I get a call from…
I hope, like supposedly with Comey’s firing, Trump spent last night inhaling news, confused about why so many people are mad at him. After all, he’s a dumb idiot. Polls show 73% of Americans wanted us to stay in the Accord for various reasons. There are at least 9x as many jobs in renewable energy as coal, and the…
I mean, Trump’s administration is an enemy to Earth. If I led a country focused on mitigating the effects of climate change, I would feel war-like toward us. Particularly if that pesky Article 5 is out of the picture....
I am still opposed to the narrative that any one election is a measure of the resistance (let alone a not swing district like this), but the numbers are pretty huge. Typically this benefits Democrats but time will tell.
Here is a transcript of our mayor’s address on the removal of the Confederate monuments in New Orleans (the last of those slated for removal came down Friday). (edit - since there’s no image visible in the list on the GT page, I want to notify everyone there are deeply satisfying images in this post!)
I’ll admit I am fairly disoriented about the news so I didn’t realize Chaffetz is leaving ASAP but he is! I hope he dies in a fire.*
It’s the name of the show you pervs! It’s on Amazon Prime. I’d love to discuss if anyone’s been watching. I’m at Episode 7 as we speak. The first few episodes I was having an eye-rolly feminist tantrum but it’s making more sense and now I’m really into it.
It’s soothing, to me, to see this (in a FB post) written from someone who is such a bedrock of strength, in my imagination.
