Just one thing: On this 1st day of Women’s History Month I want to re-state that trans women are women, and trans women’s histories belong here in this month. That is all.
Hah, lookit me. I put “normal” in that title like it was a good thing. *snickers at self* One of my quirks is that I’m actually excellent in a real crisis. I can freak right the hell out over small things, but get a car trapped in a blizzard with no cell reception? I’m allContinue reading “Day 330, with a return to normal levels of stress”
One of the joys in my life is great restaurants. The joy of choosing a recipe and anticipating what new spin someone will put on it. Because of my allergies, I can’t get takeout anymore: I can’t talk to servers and cooks and ask about ingredients, and if something is wrong I can’t send itContinue reading “Day 320, with a kickass recipe”
Late yesterday our wee family got a bit of bad news. CN: discussing non-pandemic illness & crisis responses along with general pandemic & quarantine stuff. .

And sure, I was planning some notes about the two new Democratic US senators from Georgia, in particular, delight about Warnock. But instead, I’m watchingContinue reading “Day 300, with…terrorists in the US Capitol Building”
OhGodsIt’sAnEndOfYrPost So here we are. It’s that time. First off, I am so, so sorry for those of you who have been particularly smacked down by this year. I know so, SO many people who are in crisis, who have been in crisis, who can’t get OUT of crisis. All I can say is KEEPContinue reading “Day 294, the last day of 2020”
I woke up this morning with a massive “OH NO” sign flashing in my head. In my whole “prep myself for a holiday with no family besides Jon” I neglected something – the whole process of preparing to visit family is the literal trigger for most of my gift-organizing. I’d forgotten to coordinate an alternativeContinue reading “Day 285, with missing motivation”
