NY Times article (no paywall)

On drumpf MASSIVE FAILURE and PURE POLITICAL PLAY - misplayed, by the way...

on Covid.




“You’re killing me! This whole thing is! We’ve got all the damn cases,” Mr. Trump yelled at Jared Kushner, his son-in-law and senior adviser, during a gathering of top aides in the Oval Office on Aug. 19. “I want to do what Mexico does. They don’t give you a test till you get to the emergency room and you’re vomiting.”

Wierd symptoms - seeking input

I do intermittent fasting, though not religiously.

On Monday, I ate nothing, then went for a fun XC ski with family. Our plan was to ski for about 1.5 hours, eat a picnic in the car, then go back out and ski more. I see now I should have had at least a light breakfast.

We had lunch in the car - ham sandwiches. This is homegrown heritage pork from a neighbor - leftovers from Christmas Dinner! I don't eat a lot of meat normally (though had been chawing on this ham for a few days), and I know I normally struggle exercising after eating a big meal. We had organic potato chips (!)with the meal, and small candies after the meal, then went back out to ski more. I drank 20 ozs. of water with lunch.

Almost right away I felt woozy - lightheaded, dizzy, and suddenly really lethargic! My hands got super super cold (it was about 28 degrees out). We had to leave pretty quickly!

Since then I continue to feel lethargic and nauseous from time to time, and developed a minor rash!

I wonder if I blew out my gut biome trying to digest a huge protein hit while demanding blood to other parts of my body (xc skiing, cold)? We make our own keifer so I'm about to have a smoothie. Hope it helps! Hope it goes away fast!

Wondering if others here are big gut biome or intermittent fasting adherents?

So, reading in WAPO that

none of the major players in DC expected Captain Chaos to pull this stunt with the COVID relief bill? Is this because they have their heads up their asses?

Is anyone here surprised that a proven attention whore (with apologies to sex workers if I offend) would throw in a roadblock at the last second?

I completely anticipated it!

Need help getting my Christmas spirit back.

My asshole trumpy neighbor tagged a large boulder on the hillside above our homes with fluorescent orange paint. I thought it was for his stupid lame ridiculous nasty shooting fun. He's shooting, as I write this. It is dusk. Quite the "improvement" on nature.

Only today, in my hike up to the national forest behind our place, did I see it says Trump 2020. Facing right at our house, no one else can see it. Visible from our deck. Clearly directed at us after we put up our lowprofile Biden etc. signs.

How do I not wish for something terrible to befall him?
