If you have been hanging around these parts for some time, then you know Emperor Baby Fists is not my guy. He stands for pretty much everything that I hate, except men. I like men, minus him and those who behave in a similar manner. While I am counting down to his inevitable impeachment, we still have to tolerate him until that happy day occurs, which is why I put together this survival guide. We’re living in a cray, cray world and it is only getting crazier, so you need to be prepared.
I wasn’t going to post today, even though Thursday is my post day. I woke up in a bad mood on Wednesday for no good reason. Nothing bad happened. I had not watched or read the news, so beyond my normal general irritation with Emperor Baby Fists, I wasn’t in hulk-mode yet. But I felt off. Quietly blue and a little sad. With zero energy or interest in writing a post.
“I get so emotional, baby, every time I read a book.” Okay, that’s not how the song goes but how I feel every time I start a new book. Everything from excitement to fear course through my body as I wonder — will I turn into a slobbering fool? Hulk out because the book sucked something fierce? Or hug the book to my chest, close my eyes and try to absorb all its goodness inside of me? If you haven’t figured it out yet, several books this month made me emotional, so very, very emotional.
Many people have mixed emotions when it comes to Valentine’s Day. Some hate it; some love it, while I fall into the neutral zone. I don’t go overboard with it but I like to acknowledge it too. My preference is on the actual holiday to enjoy a favorite takeout meal and dine out on a different day. Right now it’s just me and Max but we still enjoy a good meal together! 😀
Today, we’re meeting for coffee, just the two of us. Let’s get comfy in some oversized, plush chairs with our large porcelain mugs of piping hot java and settle in for a long conversation about nothing. About everything. Those are the best conversations, right? I decided to “borrow” this idea from Audrey. After all, some days all you want to do is share a stream of random thoughts. Over coffee. Lots and lots of coffee.
We’re one month into 2017 and day 13 into Emperor Baby Fists reign of terror and I’m ready to fast forward to whenever he gets impeached. But I am also a big believer in two things: 1) Not being silent and 2) Happiness is the best revenge. I will not be silent, nor will I wallow in misery and give away my joy for the next four years. I will be loud, happy and #resist.
