Sorry I haven’t been around. Yes, I know blogging twice a week was a June Goal. Obviously you know how well that went for me since I haven’t posted since mid-June. It wasn’t intentional but … well, there you go. And errr … let’s not talk about my Goal #2: exercising twice a week. Yeah …. let’s definitely not ever talk about it because errrr … June was obviously not a great month for me.Continue Reading …
Hmmmm … maybe a more apocalyptic title then I intended but still … true. And let’s be real — all of us have worried at least once in the past two years that someone might accidentally, on purpose blow up the world. Or was that just me? No, I didn’t think so. But we’re still here: alive, breathing, kicking and screaming. I’m grateful to be here with you ass-kickers and world-changers and love-mongers.
I had zero enthusiasm on any topic, until I saw Rebecca Jo’s post on Halloween. And sure, sure Halloween was yesterday so this is old news. But my blog and Halloween is never old news, especially when I got nothing else to talk about without ranting or obsessively talking about my cat in a way that makes people uncomfortable. Just kidding. You can decide what part I’m kidding about or not. Trick or treat, my friends!
President’s Day used to mean a 3-day weekend and some good sales to me. I never really paid enough attention to it or past Presidents and the decisions they made on a daily basis. You see, once upon a time, I had trust in my President, even one I didn’t vote for, because I still expected them to behave in a certain way. To lead. To have America’s best interest’s at heart versus their own. And if they didn’t, I expected Congress and our courts to uphold the sanctity of the Constitution, and thereby protect our democracy first and foremost. But now, everything seems broken.
Seriously, don’t. Please, pease don’t. I am appalled and embarrassed by you know who’s remarks. But surprised, not really. How many times does he need to say and/or do something racist for us to realize that he is racist? I am, however, deeply disappointed in the response from GOP leaders and Republicans as a whole. Their refusal to condemn his remarks is a slap in the face to MLK and to minorities of which I am one.
Tis the week of Thanksgiving which means it’s time for my annual Gratitude List. Normally, I do this over at Eat Laugh Purr but since I’m no longer regularly posting over there, it shall become a tradition here. Of course, Max always joined me and it wouldn’t feel right to exclude him, so please welcome back Max, aka the Coolest Cat.
