So I need permission to be concerned, now?

I have had people tell me to stop being dramatic, and stop being paranoid, when it comes to the weird-ass ways in which I get sick.

Over the past month, I’ve had a random cough that was only sometimes accompanied by a low-grade fever, and symptoms of the flu. The cough got bad enough over […]

On Etiquette and Autonomy

I’m going to state some obvious things, here, but bear with me.

The past few days have been like a roller coaster that has one drop, and then just kind of goes on a straightaway before running out of inertia and just sitting there, while I’ve been unable to exit the ride because the bar […]

The beautiful disaster that I can’t write about for work.

Before I begin this epic adventure in writing, I want to point out a few things:

Without follow-up from any of the involved parties, this falls under the umbrella of “speculation.” Because there are details that were added to try to “legitimize” the claim, some of the folks named in this may not actually be […]

Ah, racism.

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 […]

Don’t cross me, Internet.

It’s been one of THOSE days.

The days where you’re awakened by a phone call with bad news (even if it’s an answer you’ve been waiting for…it’s never fun to be told that your thyroid and hypothalamus have both just stopped giving a shit with regard to your T3 levels, and that your adrenal glands […]

Don’t let your mouth write checks your ass can’t cash.

This goes for SO MANY PEOPLE today.

Early this morning, I was called a liar and belittled over a stupid gaming thing. I had said I was going to do a game stream, and then the person who’d asked me to invited me to play Minecraft on another streamer’s server (someone gave me their old […]

YGTBKM – I’m about to get curse-tastic up in here.

I just learned from Breda’s Facebook (trademark pending) that there’s a New Jersey school implementing a “no cursing” rule for female students. The males, however, have simply been asked to abstain from cursing when females are near.

Allow me to quote from “The Birdcage”:

Val: “Are you upset?”

Armand: “…and let me tell you why.”

Call and response.

Someone who used to be a very dear friend of mine posted the following in a public forum, this morning (I broke it up because it was a giant wall of text…I guess for impact purposes):

Last night I was down in the city with my fiance and his mother and stepdad, who are visiting […]

So, according to Arizona…

…every woman who crosses the state line could be pregnant at any time, without knowing it. Seriously…think about it. If she has sex, no matter where she is in her cycle, she’s just risked having a 2-week-old fetus (by the definition of this law) MAGICALLY IMPLANTED into her uterus.

Dear World,

What is it with […]

“Legitimate rape”? Are you kidding me?

Jezebel pretty much covers the snark portion of this situation, so I’ll leave that to them.

You guys want to know why I’m not talking about politics, anywhere?

THIS IS WHY.

BECAUSE EVERYONE IS A MORON IN AN ELECTION YEAR, MORE SO THAN USUAL.

Yes, “everyone.”

Have you ever heard of “magical thinking”? It’s very […]
