So, My Therapist Says I’m Disengaging...

It’s not something I’ve been doing on purpose, but I can see it.

I took the “Which Star Trek Character Are You?” quiz. I *really* wanted Picard but figured I’d get Beverly Crusher.

Now, Back to My Usual BS
movie: shining twins
      What's the last book you read, LJ fam? Mine was an audible version of The Pentagon's Brain by Annie Jacobsen. It's a well-researched and somewhat disturbing book about DARPA and its various weapons programs. Some of the things the US government is documented as currently pursuing (like hunter-killer robots, autonomous AI which hunts down, identifies, and kills its targets ) are just plain frightening, particularly when you think of them in the hands of someone like Donald Trump. And do they want Skynet? Because that's exactly how you get Skynet.

I Can't Believe It's November Already

This is not a real post. This is would be more aptly described as notes for future posts, so you'll have to bear with me a little. Please and thank you :)

Things to Mention

  1. I had an argument with my brother, my sister, and my mother about how much of my mom's disability my sister appropriates. It was not pretty particularly since my sister and I just starting talking again a few months ago...it's pretty safe to say that's over now.

  2. A health update...or whatever.

  3. Cold weather has arrived. (Alternate title: Eff you winter! I hate you!)

  4. Step One: Writing class, Step Two: Write a play, Step Three: ???

  5. Nanowrimo (Uh-oh)

  6. My mom had surgery.

  7. I have an amusing story to share about Jacob getting to be "line leader" at preschool.

I’m sorry I haven’t been around, but at least I have a really good excuse this time: I’ve been writing my play for that class I told you about. We had a week to write the first draft (I finished mine a little after 4 am the morning of class), and then we had actors in to do a cold read so we could hear how it sounded aloud. After that, we had two weeks to do the rewrite. I’m cautiously excited about how mine turned out, but I think I might vomit at the same time. I debated attaching it to this post, but I didn’t want to make it seem like I was pressuring anyone, so if you’re curious message me an email address. I’m hoping to get invited to the advanced playwriting class, but that remains to be seen.

This has been a pretty boring post, so here’s a picture of my shadow, Albus Dumbledogg, for your troubles...


I Accomplished Something!

After finally finishing one of my projects, I'm so pleased with how it turned out that I'm going to show it off a little...

We've needed to get the dog food off the floor for some time now because it's hard for our arthritic old girl to lean down in that position for long. I got a Dremel for Christmas and eventually decided to break it in by making a dog food stand instead of buying one. The most difficult part for me was measuring, then measuring again, then measuring once more (just to be sure) so the food bowl would be both centered in the middle of the stand AND so its rim would sit flush with the tabletop. I'm still somewhat in disbelief that I actually got it right.

I tried to get Willow to pose with her shiny new stand, but she refused to get off the couch. So here she is cuddling with her blanket instead:

...And a procrastinator of the first order. I still have to edit those photos, so instead here’s a quick picture of my dinner tonight:

What are you up to LJ fam?

Drivers I Automatically Side-Eye
movie: shining twins

If you live in the city or the burbs and have a bumper sticker on your truck that says some shit like “Cowgirl Up!” Or “Country boys will survive!”

People with non-ironic stick figure families on their cars, especially if they have more than four stick kids. Stop overpopulating the planet and being so fucking basic.

Anyone with an “Abortion stops a beating heart” bumper sticker. You know what else stops a beating heart? Women who die because they can’t receive medically safe abortions. Also, my foot up your ass.

You have an Insane Clown Posse sticker on your car... That tells me pretty much everything I need to know about you.

That goes double for those idiots with the fake testicles on their tow hitches. If you’re secure in your own balls, you don’t need fake ones for your truck.

What about you? What things do you see in traffic or parking lots that signify the person in the other car is probably an asshole?

What’s going on in your lives? What are you watching, loving, disliking, missing, pondering, or doing? What’s got you reeling, rolling your eyes, excited, or disgusted? Let’s discuss!

Here are a few things to get us going...

- My oven is no more. Luckily, I have a crockpot and Pinterest.

- I’ve been watching the remake of Battlestar Galactica. It’s not bad. I can see why people were such big fans back in the day.

- Do you believe in the Mandela Effect? If so, do you have a theory what’s causing it? Have you ever personally experienced it?

- Have you ever personally identified with a fictional character? Who and why?
