Triggers: Sexual assault.
I used to work down on that stretch of Yonge. I ate my lunch and read books in the parkette where the truck finally stopped. I still have friends who work down there. And I’m just so angry. I’ve been on edge all day.
according to the ancient Mesopotamians.
This showed up on the lawn across the way this week and I need to know.
Probably not. But this makes me laugh all the same: Trump tells us enjoyed his dinner during the G20 sitting beside a “lovely woman” who sadly didn’t speak English (“Like, not even ‘hello” Trump tells us.) Except she does, and he’s met her before.
He was scheduled to speak in Canada this week and the talk has been cancelled.
Yep, this just came across my feed and felt compelled to share.
I religiously watch the debates in real time whenever I can, because I want to have my own reaction to what is said before I hear the play-by-play and reviews that follow. (Sometimes my initial reactions are stupid, which is also sobering.) But, I think I’m gonna take a pass this Monday.
So my lovely partner is finally not traveling for work, every damn week. We had almost a year and a half of it, so it really became the norm, and it’s lovely to have him home. (Well, mostly. Been a few bumps as we both adjust to really, truly living together again.)
Clearly, you need a wall.
So that happened. After saying he would delay his announcement of his VP choice out of respect for the events in Nice, Trump went ahead as planned yesterday and selected a man who is anti-science and anti-woman, and nearly sunk his state’s economy when he tried to invent the right to treat gay people like shit... All…
so she can do her own thing! She’s got her own deal with the Comedy Central now to develop and executive produce a narrative scripted pilot. ‘Bout time.
Collet and David Stephan—who were convicted in April of failing to provide the necessaries of life to their son Ezekiel after he died of bacterial meningitis—have been sentenced. David got 4 months jail time and Collet 3 got months house arrest. Both get 2 years probation as well.
I’m trying to find some jewelry. I own a few small pendants, but lately I’m coveting large statement necklaces and rhinestones earrings. I’m generally trying to look more ‘put together’, which has mostly just meant grooming my nails and eyebrows and throwing out clothes will holes in them so I’m not tempted to wear…
which is a window deep into my psyche at the moment.
Although my heart breaks for their other two children—this is a huge relief. It barely took the jury 24 hours to find David and Collet Stephen guilty of failing to provide the necessaries of life. No sentencing date yet.
Caveat: It’s a Canadian Conservative politician - who is likely going to run for the leadership of the conservative party - who wrote an editorial in the National Post today calling for less of ‘telling women how to deal with casual, ‘everyday’ sexism’ and calling out men for engaging in it.
Not a big fan of April Fools in general. I think pranks should always be joyful, and as much fun for the prankie/audience as the prank puller.
The judgement was over an hour of the judge ripping into each accuser; Not just on the inconsistencies that established reasonable doubt, but really a play-by-play of their errors, including assumptions about their motivations (media attention, attempts to deceive and ‘bringing JG down’.)
(I don’t know if this needs some sort of body-shaming trigger warning, but it’s all reasonably mild stuff). My littlest sister has always had a mean girl streak. She’s not Regina George, but she’s got some misplaced pride in being the ‘boss bitch’ in her circle of friends, and there have been the odd moments of…
