Nazis

I live in a country with Nazis in it.They helped elect the POTUS, who does not denounce white supremacy.Coincidentally, he does not know even the most basic aspects of world (or even US) history. Which I guess means we’re all condemned to repeat it. Or we would, if climate change wasn’t going to kill us all first. One thing’s for certain…I’m going to continue to smoke as much pot as I fucking want to, because I am sad and hopeless…

I’m Sure I Don’t Know…but Radishes though.

I have a terrible track record when it comes to media and popularity. What I mean is, some of the new shows I hear about…I think are the most disgusting and offensive ideas ever. And then they become huge hits: Queer Eye for the Straight Guy (stereotype much)The Biggest Loser (surely people know that’s unhealthy and fake)Storage Wars (strangers fight over cherished possessions of poor people)American Idol (mostly that beginning part where they mock sincere people)Dancing with the “Stars” (who…

My Poor Desk

For those of you who have never visited my home, I have a tiny desk on wheels on one side of my living room. H has the whole office to himself, and I work near the TV so I can do reviews and stuff. JoJo loves climbing all over the desk almost as much as he loves jumping off of it. But see, it’s a cheap piece of crap. I’ve already bought it twice because the first one had a…

Argh!

So much annoyance. Power and internet took turns going out all friggin’ weekend. That’s dumb, because I certainly don’t need help NOT getting any work done. So I’m working today and tomorrow instead of taking some much needed time to work on the outline for my screenplay. Yeah, I’m taking another stab at this screenplay, this time with a writing partner. Our door buzzer has been broken for more than a week. Given the impatience of the UPS guy, I’ve…

It’s January 9th

I don’t actually have much to say, but feel compelled to post here a few times a month. Decided not to move my Email to a cheaper server, mainly because I don’t know what the hell I’m doing and don’t want to risk fucking up my…basically everything because I’m trying to save $60 a year. It’s almost tax time. I always hate tax time, but this year will be even dumber than usual because we got stiffed by a client…

My Brain Not on the Drugs it’s Usually On

Last week, I had a doc appt on Wednesday. I hate going to the doc. Actually, I hate going anywhere. I don’t like being around people or in environments I don’t have any control over. The older I become, the worse this is. But I needed med refills and an A1C, so I arranged my whole week so I’d be sure to make it to this appointment. The doc was sick and canceled on me. That sucked. It was almost…

Wednes and the Disappointing $15 Kindle Script

You know what’s weird? Given the popularity of Harry Potter fandom with women my age, I’d have expected people in my social media feeds to be losing their minds over Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. They weren’t. Nobody has been all “Oh, you haven’t read it yet?!? It’s soooo good.” None of that. Now that I’ve read it, I totally understand why. ( Cut, because here and Goodreads are some of the only places you can still cut for spoilers. )…

Just when I thought I was out…

As most of you know, we lost our battle with Nightmare Client’s bank, and he robbed us of almost $3,000 (plus fees). Later, he had some rented legal firm send us a hilarious “cease and desist” that suggests that I posted a bunch of bad Amazon reviews on his terrible book (which would be absolutely legal for me to do, though I didn’t do that). Losing the money was a drag, but not ruinous to us thanks to everyone having…

How to Safen Up–Safe Style

We haven’t heard anything else from Nightmare Client since we got that ridiculous letter from his rented legal firm. While that may seem like good news, it worries me. Some facts: –Nightmare Client is sure I’m responsible for all of his bad Amazon reviews, and therefore his lack of sales. –I am not responsible for any, and Amazon can verify this if they so choose. –As of the 13th of this month, the 21-day deadline sent by the lawyers will…

…Only to Face a New Nightmare (Client)

We continue the harrowing saga of Nightmare Client with this: H and I find ourselves close enough to homelessness that we’re having a bit of a fundraiser. So far, people have been very generous and we’re almost halfway to our goal. If any of you would honor us with a small donation or a share–we would be most grateful. Plus, we have perks! We’re still fighting this theft with the resources at our disposal. But see, his specialty is credit…
