Real Pandemics Have Curves

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

Love in the Time of Corona

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

Use the Space Force, Luke

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

Remember, Remember…

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…

Cohen Events

*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

Improv #11: I’m Mrs. Bright Blogs

*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

Subway Sociology #2: Triggersplaining

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

Improv #5: Meta-Analysis

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

20H8: H8as vs. D8a

I want Mueller to take down Trump. My head wants Trump taken down any way possible, but my heart specifically wants Mueller to do it. He's a wonk. He's a wonk who is described (by anyone other than the most vocal House Republicans) as scrupulously based in the data, cautious enough to only act when … Continue reading 20H8: H8as vs. D8a

*Press It*: A One Word Sentence

"The proposed tax reform package stakes out America’s bid to become the most unequal society in the world, and will greatly increase the already high levels of wealth and income inequality between the richest 1% and the poorest 50% of Americans.  The dramatic cuts in welfare, foreshadowed by the President and Speaker Ryan, and already … Continue reading *Press It*: A One Word Sentence
