About Me

I've been a member of DU since the very beginning....after that horrible fiasco - the sElection of 2000. My first user name was Lindsey, then I changed it to Nirvana555, and now it's Upthevibe. I had devices crash and I ended up having to change my user name. I've never been one to make a whole lot of original posts, but I consider myself a very active member in that I come to DU almost every day and read the wonderfully informative threads. I can't imagine what life would have been like over the past two decades without DU!

I'm watching American Crime: Impeachment...

Re: Clinton and Lewinsky. (On Hulu).

It's sooooo disturbing. I wish I hadn't started it but now I really need to finish.

Misc. notes: IMHO, Edie Falco is miscast as Hillary but Clive Owen is excellent as Clinton. Bernie Feldstein is a great actress and is doing a very impressive job. I don't know enough about Monica Lewinsky to know if she necessarily nails Monica's persona. Sarah Paulson is amazing as Linda Tripp. You don't even know it's her.

This is painful to watch (I understand the response would be, "Then why in the Hell are you watching it?) I'm on the 8th out of 10th episode and I just have to finish. The story is mainly told from the perspective of Lewinsky and Tripp.....

Could Texas go Blue? I'm watching Lawrence O'Donnell's show

from last night.

He had a report about what Abbott is doing with trucks at the border. He then had Beto O'Rourke on as a guest.

As a native Texas (who's lived in California most of my adult life - since 1988), I'm wondering if there's a chance?

What do Du'ers think?


I tested positive for COVID on Sunday (3/20).....

I gave myself a home test on Saturday morning since I'd been teaching (full-time substitute teacher) all week. I tested negative. This was the first week that the L.A. schools lifted their mask mandate and, even though I wore mine most of the time, I was more lax than I've ever been.

Late Saturday afternoon, I had a pretty bad headache and a sore throat. On Sunday morning, I and my two roommates all tested positive (home tests). We then went to CVS to test there so they could be sent to a lab. Sure enough, we all found out yesterday that we are positive. One roommate has NO symptoms, the other has congestion and a mild cough, and I've had no symptoms at all since Saturday afternoon.

Most of the teachers and the high school students where I normally teach kept wearing their masks but some didn't. I should have done what I had always done and worn my mask without exception. I wasn't as careful as I normally am. I've been vaccinated and boosted. I've been so careful for two years! I honestly believe the mask mandate has been lifted too soon.

Thank God the agency where I work has allocated 50 hours of pay per substitute teachers for those who've tested positive for COVID. I feel very, very fortunate. I'll be off work all of this week, and I hope very much that I'll be back at school on Monday. BTW, I'm going to wear my masks maybe for the rest of the time I'm subbing! Especially seeing that folks are testing positive more than once...

Hillary's on Rachel tonight...

I can't find the video. I'm watching it a couple of hours late on my DVR. Man, Hillary is so spot on....

(My apologies if there are already threads about this)...

Has anyone here seen the T.V. series Insecure?

Several folks I know have told me it's great.

I'd love Du'ers feedback.

Thank you!

OMG..... The Righteous Gemstones....

This show is beyond awesome!

I loved the first and (so far) only season and due to COVID there haven't been any new episodes until a couple of weeks ago. Season two is underway.

I DVR'd the first two episodes and just watched them. Danny McBride is a genius!

To anyone who has HBO, I highly recommend this show...

Does someone have a list of Senate Republicans

who are retiring or not running in 2022?

I want to see if there's anyone who may be open to voting with the Dems. on voting rights.

I apologize if this has already been posted and discussed ad nauseam. I've been back at work teaching. During the week it's hard for me to keep up with current events so I normally catch up on the weekends.

Thanks for any feedback (if there's already a lot of discussions I'd be grateful if you post some threads)....

Can someone here on DU please explain the current Filibuster


I know I could google it but I'd value DU'er's posts and insights regarding this incredibly important issue.

I think I heard (but I may have misheard) that there needs to be at least 41 Senators on the floor while it's going on. Also, I think they have to speak for at least a certain amount of time.

If our Senators (with Schumer leading) aren't doing EVERYTHING they can do (including rewriting rules that aren't laws - like what McConnell did) why aren't they?

Thanks for your feedback......

These two are adorable!


Another Michael Nesmith tribute....

This is such a great song that he wrote performed by the great Linda Ronstadt....
