She’s almost 12! (but a wee breed, who usually lives to 15-17). She’s went through a bout of gastrointestinal issues at the beginning of the pandemic and had her yearly checkup and blood work, so all the things i’d usually be worried about (diabetes, stomach stuff) she’s actually had pretty comprehensive blood work Read more

Ha I am also a strong hyphen user (I usually have to go back through emails and be like Violet, you can’t have three sentences with dashes in a row). I think they’re a very underappreciated punctuation!

Someone should tell my insurance company here in Louisiana, because they seem to think every terrible driver fucking lives here based on the way they charge.

I’m sleepy this morning. My dog has for some reason been getting up every night in the middle of the night to pee, which means I’ve been getting up to let her. I’m both tired and worried at the new turn of events because its not normal for her. Read more

Good, bad, or indifferent - the floor is yours” is the way I’d go. Maybe Good, bad, or indifferent; the floor is yours” which looks more traditional but also possibly less correct because I dont think good, bad, or indifferent is technically an independent clause.  I feel like the answer really depends on the Read more

I truly have no idea why they don’t. I figured I’d learn at the training if it was some security thing but they never said why the shifts are long, only that you’re not allowed to leave during because there’s concerns that people wouldn’t come back or that the polls would end up short handed. Nothing about why they Read more

I’m with you on this one. Maybe we are crazy, but the last two republican presidents haven’t won by popular vote, and we’re the kids who grew up watching hanging chads and elections being decided by courts, not ballots. I still have hope and optimism but its abundantly clear that the system is rotten from the inside Read more

I am trying so hard to prep myself for the days (at least) of anxiety and .... its not going great so far. Especially when I read stuff about how John Roberts, Kavanaugh, AND Amy Comey Barrett were all on the legal team for Bush v Gore. 1 guess whether they worked for Bush’s team or for Gore’s. Trump hasn’t just been Read more

You are right! they’re in shortage BUT but the good news is that this election (at least in my area) really spurred people to join!  Our parish went from having not enough to having an overflow where people applied and never got called back, and we have a stockpile of alternates and people on standby to be ballot Read more

I’m working as a poll commissioner! I wanted to do something to help people vote, and then after the fact I realized that giving myself something to do all day and focus on (and then be exhausted from - seriously, how is it legal to make the shifts this long, especially when the average age of a commissioner in my Read more

oh, not a denier for sure! Just pointing out that the situation is getting a lot worse than it has been, so definitely could be American and looking ahead to a lockdown. I didn’t realize how much worse it had gotten the last week or two until I saw the news yesterday - locally our numbers have been going down Read more

I am sending you good thoughts, and I hope the IUD crowd on GT comes out in full force for you! I’ve had an IUD in for the last 15 years or so and it was hands down probably the best health decision I’ve made. Read more

Every time I hear about kid’s tantrums, I am so jealous.  Not of the poor parent, but of the kid, because I feel like all of those emotions are also how I feel going back to work on Monday and it would be such a relief to scream at someone else about it instead of talking myself down in my own head lol.

America has seen record high days for new covid cases in the past week, and hospitalizations are also rising, and that plus the concern that colder temps for most parts of the US mean more indoor time/contact and flu season mean that it’s likely more lockdowns are imminent for most places.

I absolutely hated fall when I lived in northern Michigan - it was chilly and it was this horrible harbinger of the winter misery to come. It’s cold without the fun snow and winter activities of winter time. Read more

Historically, if you look at pagan calendars and harvest festivals/feasts, you are absolutely accurate.

I mean in reality, every single agrarian culture has some sort of harvest festival and Thanksgiving is simply ours dressed up in the particular trappings we’ve given it.
