Maybe I'll start posting here again? Yeah, that sounds like a good idea. Let's start with disjointed information of varying importance.
I’m 30 now. (How the HELL did that happen?) Though the dudes in my life are significantly younger. (I don’t know how that
happened either). Still poorer than dirt and always will be. (I’ve gotten many marriage proposals, but none from anyone with substantially better prospects.)
Gee, what else.
I am a total moron in that I started smoking about 8 years ago. Considering what my life was like at the time - hellish beyond all description - in total ruin - I can’t even say ‘precarious’ because that would imply there was somewhere worse it could go - …smoking was actually was the best option I had at the time to try to maintain the barest semblance of sanity. I’m 99% vape now that I’m in a somewhat better place (having a car is a BIG deal. You can go places, and even live in it when necessary!) Maybe someday soon I’ll go all the way and quit nicotine.
Hokay, how about more recent stuff. In the last year I…
Went to Sturgis for its first weekend and slept in a tent (we ran out of money pretty much instantly, since the dude that said he would pay our way is a moron). I got to wear one of my mother’s skank tops. (I inherited three trash bags full of her lingerie. It was exactly as traumatic as it sounds.) Considering I’m a G cup bra size (I blame Mirena) the fit was totally
different than it’s supposed to be and I had to rig it up a bit. (I made it SO MUCH BETTER)
I saved up gas money and went by myself to the line of totality in Wyoming to see the eclipse. Accidentally unnecessarily parked about 5 miles away but walked the whole damn rest of the way so that nobody I’d met and spoke to along the way would see my embarrassing mistake. (did I mention that I'm a moron too?) Wore a huge-ass machete (a birthday gift) across my backpack and nobody messed with me XD. There was lots of whispering as I walked by.
My Mirena IUD expired almost a year ago. In probably related news, I’ve suddenly lost most of the 50 pounds that I randomly gained a number of years ago, which IIRC coincidentally happened riiiight around the time I had the Mirena installed. o.O;
I wonder what’s worse – the 6 month long menstruation from hell, or being on the wrong side of normal/overweight according to BMI. I am honestly, swear-to-dog uncertain which I would prefer. I'm fully indoctrinated by society’s bullshit Cult of Thin. DX
It’s actually going to depend on what my chest does. I DON’T WANT SAGGY. Yes I am ashamed of myself.
At least I’ve shed pretty much every other female beauty standard. 360+ days a year I wear my baby brother’s hand-me-ups and no makeup. I go months between shaving my legs. But there are still a few things I can’t seem to shake. Oh well. I’m still freer than most women ever get. (Permanent unemployment = no employer dress code? That doesn’t fit the definition of Pyrrhic or Monkey’s Paw, but it’s something along those lines. ...Silver lining, maybe?)
What else happened somewhat-but-not-really recently?
Uh, the Monster-In-Chief got elected. My Dad and Bro voted for him. Because of course they did. A possibly-related depressive spiral meant I could barely get out of bed mid-Nov thru Jan. I don’t know if that was the reason, but it definitely didn’t help.
Now on to current
I’m glad I don’t live in Fort Myers area anymore. Irma curbstomped it. My heart and sympathies go out to the people who did not have the means to evacuate FL. I would have been one of you.
As for others? The rich-types? The sickest, most evil part of me was kind of rooting for the storm. I hate this part of myself, but devastation and wreckage of formerly opulent estates is kind of fun to see. It’s a grand drama and the vengeance of Mother Nature for everything we’ve been doing to her. I hate that the hardest hit are those who do near-zero damage to the world. But once in a long while, nature’s wrath also hits the right target. Blow motherfucker blow.
(What was that? My grandma and favorite aunt live in Ft Myers? Uhh…whoops. They could easily afford evacuation, so I don't feel too sorry for them.)
Then there’s thishttps://thegeekygaeilgeoir.wordpress.com/2017/09/06/even-racists-got-the-blues/
From what I understand, a correct translation would be something like “Important are people who are police,” or perhaps “Worthy are persons of law-enforcement.” That sounds pretty Yoda-ish (or alternately, King James Bible-ish), but it’s still pretty close to a direct translation.
Instead, the guy ended up with “dwells concept blue-ing,” which is both gibberish and pretty humorous.
