My WONDERFUL Grandkids got vaccinated today!!!!!

Five and eight years old, they both threw a wall-eyed fit going into the pharmacy, but after they received the vaccine and realized it was no biggie, they decided they now like shots and they were sure to let everyone in the entire store know about their change of heart. The eight year old said having the shot makes her feel "free". I felt that same freeing relief when I got my vaccine. So proud of my babies!!

My best friend/roommate's ex husband just died...

Rabid anti-vaxxer, Trump supporter, and previously very healthy man. Now my god child doesn't have a dad. Stupid, stupid, stupid! They are all heart-broken. I'm just getting angrier. How much death will it take to convince them?

I just can't ...

I just feel all beat up these days. I'm tired of it all. I'm tired of the anti-vaxxers, the maskless morons, the dumbasses who will take toxic horse wormer instead of a free vaccine, the people who are so staunchly devoted to their ignorance that the entire nation is at risk of losing Democracy and the war against Covid. I also am exhausted from wearing the mask and lately we're having to wear N95s and gowns and shields again. When will it ever end? I'm so exhausted from it all. I cannot listen to another problem, be an ear to anyone. Even my sense of humor and my bitch skills seem broken these days. I just have nothing to give. I'm worn out.

I'm going to try to bury myself in artwork for a while to give myself a break. Too burnt out for anything.

Stay safe.

I just published an open letter to Former President Trump


No pay wall for this link. Satire, but it's just too close to reality, yeah?

Lines are getting clearer...

We no longer have to ask if folks are Trump supporters or not. There is an excellent chance they are Trump supporters if they don’t get the Covid vaccine.

Nobody mentions the financial devastation...

…that comes with a bad case of Covid. People are selfish. They feel physically invincible, they’re not worried about Covid killing them. They simply can’t imagine that. But the financial devastation really should get their attention. Covid bankrupts families. They will never pay off the medical bills if they get a bad case or if they give it to their kids or relatives…they risk not only their health, but their financial security/future. We should stress this very important reality when we get the chance.

Is it a cyberattack, or just rotten service?

I live in Bryan College Station area of Texas. Suddenlink has a monopoly on internet service around here. I'm 5 days without service now and no end in sight. In all my years of using the internet, we've never been out of service so long. I hate to sound paranoid, but I'm feeling vulnerable about cyber stuff these days. Suddenlink can't (or won't) tell us the extent of the outage or when we can expect it to come back on. I'm feeling frustrated and nervous. Anyone else having issues?

I'm going to my first ballroom dance in more than a year and a half...

... I'm considering wearing a sign on my dress that says, "I will hug you if you are vaccinated and are NOT a Trump supporter."

I probably won't get many hugs, but I'm fine with that.

I'm not making this up...

I asked a gentleman if he had been vaccinated for Covid-19. He told me no, he didn't want to grow another eyeball and furthermore, he and his whole family were protected by Covid-19 because they take Ivomex. In case you don't know, that's cattle wormer. I didn't ask him if he uses the 12 inch applicator or an oral formulation--I was simply done with that conversation.
