With a Heavy Heart

I had promised myself I wasn’t going to write about the shootings in Connecticut yesterday, but it weighs too heavy on my heart. I have a lot of things I think and feel about what happened. Most everyone does. Sadness and horror and gut wrenching sympathy for the town of Newton pervade my thoughts. I …

Okay, I’m Right, so the Frel What?

Grumpy Cat in a Santa Hat

Okay, let’s add to a theme, this morning I went on Facebook before I had coffee. I’ve seen time after time why this is a terrible idea. I keep doing it. Will I never learn? Prolly not. So, this morning I logged on to Facebook and saw this on my timeline: My sleep befuddled brain …

Return to Middle

So, I’m going to be totally honest right now. I have no idea where today’s blog is going to go. My mind is a bit jumbly. Conventional wisdom says I should free write somewhere private, then condense those ideas into a post that I have thoroughly edited and proofread before posting for the world to …

I Have Your Answer Right Here

MSN asked today when the candidates should start campaigning after hurricane Sandy. The answer is simple: Don’t. We are a week away from the elections. People know who both Romney and Obama are. They know what they stand for.  A few more campaign speeches might change a couple of minds. The money and volunteer energy …

Either/Or

Rat playing the pipes

I’m going to apologize for being so heinously boring lately. Things have been all wacky like, but in a good way.  I’ve also come to understand I am far more interesting when I write angry blogs over happy blogs. I’m generally happy and too tired to brew up a healthy head of self-righteous steam. Look …

I Really Don’t Mean To

My dad called me a radical feminist today. He was mostly joking. I have been trying so hard not to feminist rant. I really don’t want to be a “radical” anything. I don’t want to constantly feel like I’m pointing at things and crying, “Not right!” I don’t want to be any of those things …

What is Up with That?

Snow bot serve and protect

My awesome and wise friend Kathleen told me something her also awesome and wise mother told her: You can tell a lot about someone by how they treat strangers. I was a teenager or in my early twenties when she relayed that wisdom to me, and I was not old enough to get it. Now, …

The It of It

Here is the it of it: I believe almost every woman in America has either been sexually misused or is close to a woman who has. I, myself, know more women who have been raped, molested, or sexually abused, than women who have not. We are full of rage. This isn’t even about abortion anymore. …

*Sputter* *Sputter*

Baby owl sad about not getting picked for Hogwarts

Sunday, I think I actually started foaming at the mouth because of the Akin craziness. Seriously, I’m pretty sure my saliva glands started to overproduce, and I could feel the convulsions coming on. I went on the Twitter and spazzed out. I always spazz out on Twitter because it feels the most like I am …

Sense of Self

COOLD stethoscope

We live in a society of self-loathing. There is a lot of profit in people hating themselves. There is something intrinsically wrong with nurturing a society who turns in on itself and focuses on what we hate and obsesses on how to fix it. We are told our bodies, our faces, our teeth, our goals, …
