[Before you read this: There are so many more people that have been awesome to me this year, and in years past, than there ever have been assholes. That may be why the assholes stand out so much. Being that they stand out, they annoy me greatly. If I've ever fussed at you, but I'm [...]
I’m writing this in Word, waiting for my internet to come back, where I will cut and paste it. I’m pointing this out because…well…my internet is derping, and this may be a lengthy entry, meaning typing it online wouldn’t work too well. Logistics, I guess.
First, there’s a new raffle. Erin has graciously offered [...]
So Starbucks has said that they would like for gun owners to NOT carry in stores, any more. This is following one of the stupidest fights I’ve seen people get into in the 6-ish years I’ve been a part of the “gun owner” demographic.
From The Practical Tactical Podcast:
One internet poster said: “I never [...]
So. Dudes and dudettes. The last time I made a surgery update (that didn’t have to do with my “cleansing prep” before a certain procedure on Wednesday), I was basically like, “Dear god, the things they’re going to have to do to me…”
First of all, my colonoscopy (there, said it) was clear. The nodule [...]
In this corner, we have the following (in no particular order):
A Girl and Her Gun

A WWII veteran was waiting outside of his local VA lodge to escort a lady friend in (this is very common – my grandmother, when she went to events in Clarksville, would have chaperones all the time, because that’s just how these folks operate), and two young black males beat the crap out of him [...]
Erin posted a (slightly panicked) email that I’d sent to her and a couple of other folks, and as she pointed out, I was waiting until I was calmer to post details about what’s happening.
Here’s the sequence with which things have been occurring, and what I’m going to do about the ones that are [...]
Some of it was anonymous, because the senders didn’t include a note with their package, so if you’d like to own up to the Shepherd’s Tale/parasol combo, or the full copy of Rocksmith (because while I think I know who sent it, it arrived awfully quickly, with the cord included with the game), please do [...]
As you know, Erin has made a “stretch goal” list for milestones along the path of donations.
#5, which I mentioned that we made, yesterday, is a pin-up, cheesecake, or bikini shot.
What I didn’t mention is that when Erin heard we’d surpassed that goal, she began to panic.
She has severe body dysmorphic disorder, [...]
Over the past few weeks, a ridiculous cliche has been appearing over and over again:
“You can make all the promises you want, but unless you see them through, they’re just empty words.”
I’ve had people I don’t even know (either at all, or just not in person) make promises and keep them. I’ve had [...]
