How To Disappear Completely and Never Be Found

I think I’m going to lay off looking for signs of intelligent life on Facebook for a while. It’s a hard choice for me. Do I just go full echo chamber and block the people who leave gross comments? If I do that, why ever post anything? Do I just shut up and post cute … Read moreHow To Disappear Completely and Never Be Found

Things I Learned on the Internet Today

I’ve learned a lot of important things from the internetz today.   1. A group of baboons organized and executed an escape plan from a medical testing facility. The public has been reassured that LOL those wacky primates with their hijinks have been captured and everyone is safe once again. Except for, y’know. The baboons. … Read moreThings I Learned on the Internet Today

God is a Bullet

I didn’t think much of anything could be more exhausting than listening to people argue over the president and his daily atrocities. I was wrong, watching people tear each other apart over gun violence is even worse.   I keep getting referred to as “you people” if I disagree with anyone. I’m not sure which … Read moreGod is a Bullet

Almost exactly one year ago, practically everyone I know crumpled over in grief. The people who matter. What were we mourning? The death of everything we believed in. An outraged cry went up, a disbelieving howl of anger and disgust. Words and words and words poured out of me at the time. I was an … Read moreBooks For Girls To Revolt By

The Wind Blew All Around Me

gourds flowers fall autumn candle candles pretty offering season mood soft flatlay orange yellow harvest thaksgiving november october

It was so beautiful outside, like a child’s watercolor dream of fall. It was unseasonably warm but not uncomfortably so. The previous night’s rain had left everything with a glowing, over-saturated sheen of color. The wind danced and blustered, playing hide-and-go-seek with itself, swirling the bright confetti leaves madly in every direction. Right before sunset, … Read moreThe Wind Blew All Around Me

I Can Dance on My Own Grave, Thank You.

So last month I took a little break from the internetz, coming online strictly to work and briefly check in with friends for 2 hours every 3-5 days. I did miss keeping up with everyone’s posts and also entering contests, BUT overall I felt it was a much more focused and efficient system. Healthier.   … Read moreI Can Dance on My Own Grave, Thank You.

I’m Such A Woman, Or: Why Words Matter

Are other people as bothered by the weird little phrases that people use? For instance, some lady was saying “I’m such a woman, I can’t decide (insert whatever decision she needed to make here).” And part of me wants to reply “Oh lawdy, I’d give you advice but my uterus literally makes it impossible for … Read moreI’m Such A Woman, Or: Why Words Matter

Less than a week ago the world ended. That’s how it feels. I am not being my usual hyperbolic self.

This little group of women were complaining about Hallmark’s Día de Los Muertos sugar skull ornaments, saying they were creepy and “seemed Satanic.” Because I’m a loudmouth, non-business-of-my-own-minder, I had to jump in and explain to them what the holiday is really about. Because the idea of tiny angels leaving heaven for one night to … Read moreSeeing Satan in Every Sugar Skull

What We’re Teaching Our Sons and Our Daughters

Donald Trump Hillary Clinton politics, scandal, voting, Megyn Kelly women's rights gay rights insults crime violence rape rape culture Newt Gingrich election President USA vote voting children teaching men boys language

Every time I accidentally see the news or someone’s ridiculous protestations that Donald Trump isn’t so very bad, that song “I wasn’t born with enough middle fingers” gets stuck in my head. It seems he’s gone from insulting the looks of women who’ve come forward with accusations of his groping, wormy hands (as if being … Read moreWhat We’re Teaching Our Sons and Our Daughters
