echo hijab

So I am not sure I wrote about this really ever, but I did decide there were some cultures better prepared to cover the mouth and nose, and quite fashionably, so I got some hijabs. No, I definitely did. I am not muslim, but the covering of the hair and mouth seemed to be a…

It’s the last day of April 2020

Yup and yup. I am maybe a week away from seeing Don so things are slowly coming together for us. By then it will be what–80 something days without seeing or touching anyone. Like I’ve told Don, the dog is the only reason I know anybody at this point. But certainly we aren’t touching and…

oh oh…climbing up to 71

It looks like the numbers have responded to me calling them out–of the roughly 195k cases considered closed, the numbers are now 71% recovered 29% dead. Still not the small .5 or 5 or whatever percent these liars said the mortality rate would be. I wish upon a star that they would be honest with…

arrogance has a price

So here I am writing on the last Monday in April, close enough to the unleashing of many of these measures we’ve taken, because people are weak and ultimately, the price we will pay for that weakness is death. I have watched the numbers since February–and the recovered rate seems to be hovering between 65-68%…

It’s 2020 and injecting Lysol is a thing…

Goodness guys. What the heck is going on with the world right now? It would appear the world has gone caaa-razy. The thing that actually occurred to me this morning when reading sobering news about the vaccine and also realizing that HIV, far less contagious, certainly has NO vaccine, that I am once again relegated…

the world, I mean AMERICA has lost its collective mind

I have been playing with this idea of writing the fictional account of what life could have been like had we had competent leadership during this time, but I feel like it would maybe be too early and slightly depressing considering the state of affairs we find ourselves in. And truly, to be honest, it’s…

trois, day 3 etc

I am bleeding to death which has made this whole accomplish something task a bit harder to bear as of late. I don’t want to give myself too much space to fuck off but I do–bleeding to the level I am in unpleasant. To stand there and feel a whoosh and be afraid you are…

Day 2

So, I did the thing I said I was going to do and cut myself off yesterday. Yesterday was Day 1, for some perspective. This plan was more of a Pepsi challenge of, can she do it? Can you do it I asked myself yesterday and proved to myself that, yes, I absolutely can. I…

Time is a commodity-Treat it that way

We have all heard ourselves or someone else say, well, maybe one day when I find the time, maybe later on when I’m retired there will be enough time to do all the things I wanted to do–well, now we have the time. Unfortunately we might not be using all this time we have in…

beep beep beep

Been quiet. I have to say this whole corona thing has been a lot illuminating. It has made me realize how fucking weak everyone is, to be honest. No, I am not going to be the source that tells you it’s okay, fall apart, crumble as much as you need to because everyone else is….
