Me Too

I picked an inopportune time to go radio silent what with the me too movement going on. It’s distressing, but not difficult to believe that 27 years after Anita Hill bravely testified and was systematically attacked by a panel of old white men, we are still talking about sexual harassment and gender inequality. I can add a really strenuous “me fucking...

10 Random Things Volume 2

Hello, my friends! Now that the important business of Dad death has been dealt with, we can get on with other business. It’s been so long, I don’t know where to start, so I’m just going to give you a list of random things, because when all else fails, I can always make random lists. I found this in my image library. I have no idea what it’s from.After...

Things I Learned Driving Across the USA (And Back): A Primer

Hello! I have returned from my cross-country trek. Like an idiot, I drove from Los Angeles, California to northern Michigan and back in the space of two weeks. I’ve driven cross-country a few times before, but never in such a short span and the last time was a one-way trip when I drove literally from one coast to the other with a cat and a trailer...

Weekend Coffee Share: Work, Dorkery & Assorted Drudgery

Hi there. Come on in and set a spell. I’m not really up for company today since I have a raging headache, but it’s been so long since we talked, I kind of feel obligated. What’s been going on? What did I miss? How’s it hangin’? Still to the left? Let’s see, what’s been going on with me… not much really. Work. There’s been a lot of that – like 40...

The World Of Vaping

I’ve been smoking cigarettes since I was 16. If I could go back in time and emphatically tell myself one thing, it would be not to start smoking. I still remember the first cigarette. One of my best friends in high school and I had a crush on the same guy. Neither of us had a chance, so it was okay. We were friends with him, but he had no interest...

Taste Freeze, New Music & How We Discovered Music Before The Internet

There’s a thing called taste freeze where you stop listening to new music as you age. Data show that we stop listening to new pop music after the age of 33 (Psychology Today). Granted, this concept originates at Spotify, hardly a scientific journal, and the study itself wasn’t so much a study but a crunching of numbers, but there is some truth to it....

Grief Diary: Two Years

Today is the first anniversary of Male’s death. Though he died two years ago, he has two death anniversaries. He died on the 13th, but I didn’t know until the 15th. I can’t believe it has been two years in some ways, since it really does feel like yesterday, but in other ways, it feels like so much longer, like half a lifetime, or maybe like he never...

Constitutional Car Wrecks & Other Trump Abominations

2017 has been much like a car crash; I don’t want to look, but an anthropological imperative buried deep in my psyche forces me to sneak a glimpse. I think rubbernecking is some sort of deluded self-preservation thing, e.g., look at that lion chasing that gazelle. I better watch what happens so that I can learn to avoid being that gazelle myself. If...

Weekend Coffee Share: Customer Service Nightmares & Belated Thanks

Hiya. Come on in and grab a cup. I’m not sure that I have any clean cups left since I’ve already used two this morning: I’m sure we can find something to put coffee in though. Here’s a saucepan. This has been a weird week with a lot of anxiety. As has been typical of my life, a lot of my anxiety is over money, mostly because I don’t have any. It’s...

This Week In History

I wasn’t going to write about the Trump presidency, because there’s just too much to write about. There are too many spinning plates balanced precariously on the end of sticks for us to keep in the air. We, the citizens of the planet, are the plates. The economy, the environment, education, foreign affairs, the working class, immigrants, anyone with...
