CW: American eugenics in the time of corona. States announcing they will deny life-saving treatment to corona patients if they have disabilities such as "Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, autism and other such conditions." For anyone who has ever said, "it can't happen here..." Yes, it can. And it has already (as you will well know … Continue reading It Can’t Happen Here?
CW: American politics and corona. Seriously. WTF, America?! So, uh, I'll totally be back to my usual semi-humorous self later this week. But, I need to go scream somewhere for a minute, and here is the "safest" place I can think. I have said repeatedly that people are the scariest part of any pandemic to … Continue reading Where's Whoopsie #26: Could Trump's Words like *Silent* Raindrops Fall?!
CW: Present-day mentions of covid-19 that are in line with the dark humor I have previously established when discussing the 9th Circle of Hell, but that hopefully take the situation appropriately seriously and respectfully. My Partner and I fully support efforts in the past 24-48 hours to responsibly #FlattenTheCurve. Discussions of counterfactual scenarios the U.S. … Continue reading Real Pandemics Have Curves
CW: Covid-19 as filtered through an Evangelical world view. People behaving badly out of fear. Mentions of past loss of family members who didn't seek medical treatment. General saltiness about all of the above. You know the old saying. Family: you can't live with them, and... Wait. Was there supposed to be a second half … Continue reading Love in the Time of Corona
Pop quiz: Does the fact that Donald J. Trump Jr. openly refers to anyone who opposes Trump as The Resistance(tm, Lucasfilms and Disney) suggest: The Trumps know Democracy is dead And they know they killed it That Lord Dampnut is now an official Sith moniker That Trump is so delusional he will soon order Space … Continue reading Use the Space Force, Luke
1) To vote today in your local elections if you are in the U.S. 2) That I exist. A combination of the Internet modem we thought was finally working failing again, getting sick/stuck in a flare for several weeks and then going out of town all contrived to make posting difficult again. Ugh. But, have … Continue reading Remember, Remember…
*Knock knock* "Who's there?" "Orange." "Orange who?" "Orange you glad Trump might finally be impeached as dictator of this Banana Republic?" I'm berry sorry, everyone. My joke might be a bit green still, but here's hoping the currant hints of corruption while in office from Cohen's testimony do eventually ripen and bear fruit. Trump is … Continue reading Cohen Events
*Knock knock* "Who's there?" "The Bright Side" "The Bright Side Who?" "The Bright Side Who Doesn't Actually Exist" "Oh. Then I guess this is just another dissociative conversation with the bully-in-my-brain, then?" "You catch on not quickly at all, don't you? Also, your joke sucks." I'm fairly sure the first rule of building a blog … Continue reading Improv #11: I’m Mrs. Bright Blogs
TW: Talking potentially triggeringly about someone else talking definitively triggeringly about the Kavanaugh hearings. I talk very loudly at times. It's an occupational hazard of ADHD. In hindsight, I'm sure that I have said things about things that have happened in my life loudly enough into cell phones in various public places and on various … Continue reading Subway Sociology #2: Triggersplaining
This post was supposed to be about physicality in Improv. It was also supposed to be titled The Body Keeps the Score. It is neither of those things because it turns out even a girl with ADHD can't truly have an original thought. My brain can't stay inside the box, but it certainly can stay … Continue reading Improv #5: Meta-Analysis
