OKAY THIS IS ALL FUCKED UP. THE BOTTOM PART BEFORE THE ***** THINGIE. should be the first section. i think. my laptop is totally fucked. so you should read that second part first. i think.

First of all, I have to apologize to Trig for the long ass Title. He hates that I do this. He made clear that it’s not endearing. He also…

i got myself and my increasingly fat ass and my sweet and smart senior service dog out of the house for the first time in 2 weeks! animal pics! Part One.

Okay, well, this is so very cool. I went out and about tonight for the first time in 2 weeks!!! leaving only to get my mail and to go downstairs and pick up delivery food. This is, I know, Incomprehensible for/to/not sure Regular Normal People. But, shit I don’t understand it so I can’t expect anyone else to fathom it either. (and, yes, this began after a hysterectomy and I got manic and I couldn’t shut up and I was shunned and I was the pariah of my neighborhood. Yes, that is what…

attempted short title: more stuff that happened in the Johnny Johnny period of my life: bikers, hostages, auditing improv and more.

Okay, I need to write about this. This time in my life that was fun and where I felt seen and heard and accepted for who I was. -- some of this is in my Johnny Johnny post. My time in Hell Lay where I was a baby screenwriter was another such time. I ended up leaving l.a. after the 1992 riots, the ones after the Rodney King beatings and the cops being found not guilty and the city exploded. The riots weren’t far…

i saw in my email that there are comments titled Now Squidly or whatever. i wouldn't deign to think that any of those have to do with me.

well, if that, they are probably more comments about how terrible i am. i get and got the idea, oh wow, i just realized that i can turn off comments from your lovely and delightful site. i'll go do that. never mind.

short title: squidly apologizes to Amy. i was wrong to call her out in my post. i'm sorry about that. it was childish and bad.

i was trying to protect myself and my good friend from anti-semitic and anti-zionist comments. i should have just discussed this topic privately with my jewish friends. i wish i had. i would give anything to have not read the squidly post. you should all feel great about yourselves. and about my friend who misunderstood and thought it was a nice post about me. big error. which brought me there. it was humiliating to read that post. mission accomplished.

so have another party on me.…

i'm sure you've all seen this about the anonymous posters. i had my writing workshop today -- which is actually great -- so i haven't seen the front page. but for those who haven't...

well i love this person, whoever did this. so much. this makes me so happy. we need more and more and more of this. AGent Orange says he's going to punish us if he can't get his ACA modifications passed. the ones that drastically cut medicaid. it will hurt me Bigly but people in this senior housing will die. along with millions more. if you haven't read 1984, you need to read it. it will give you chills. Bigly.…

one sentence Saturday/Sunday -- re:agent orange's tax returns. why can't they be hacked?

why can't agent orange's tax returns be hacked???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

i'm not a tech person. but if the russians can hack the democrats and the chinese can hack anything, why can't someone hack a bank or whatever and get us drumpf's tax returns?

ditto with old episodes of Celebrity Apprentice with all kinds of disgusting things he's said and done? all the stuff he's said and done.

where are the geeks when we need them?

bipolar mania leads to humiliation & betrayal/i was giant 'ho/my g spot's on vacation/ agent orange bloviates. Part One

the thing about mental illness is that it's okay for you to be bipolar (to have almost any mental illness) but it's not okay for you to act bipolar/mentally ill. even when you are on a good and complex meds cocktail and getting some counseling to help you with the BP and any other emotional challenges you might have. well, that doesn't prevent there being breakthroughs. we looney tunes need stability, need to manage our environments so we don't get tt triggered and Act Out. and we…

i have a Gratitude Journal post for later, but i have to share my #1 item: my Anxiety and Depression Meetup is having an Oscar Party! & check out the Spirit Awards!

this is what i love about life and i'm not always a big fan. i was feeling sorry for myself that i hadn't been invited to an Oscar Party. as i've said ad nauseum, i was a screenwriter back in the day and as an Agoraphobic person -- hmm, no let's say a Recovering AG person -- i'm a huge tv and film addict. so these award shows are HUGE for me. And this one is the Be All and End All, of course. Not to mention that I also Love Fashion. And I’ve felt this way since I can remember.

(a Big…

this is untenable. steve miller, a known racist /white supremacist. he flashed the white power sign. in the white house. he works in the white house!!!!

you can't even make this shit up. you cannot and nothing will be done about it!!! drumpf couldn't muster any energy at all when asked about anti-semitism. of course not, he is a freaking racist.…

one sentence post. where the hell is bernie?

where is bernie and what is he doing and why isn't he front and center at this terrifying time when we need him so much and people are showing up at town halls and they are protesting and it's so heartening and gives a lot of hope and i know there are lots and lots of people who are not getting out there yet because there isn't a progressive group that is really speaking to them and because they are so heartbroken about bernie and because they believe that he could have beaten trump and they…

my completely brilliant comments are NOT POSTING and i'm losing what is left of my mind. this steel trap is now an Aluminum Sieve. planet earth 2. and lying.

why the flying fucking fuck is this happening? and why is it only happening sometimes so i get complacent and i write another fascinating response and, pouf, it's fucking gone. my laptop is either pretty fucked or it is the free wifi in this godforsaken building that causes this shit. hmmm, is it coming across that i'm a bit peeved about this? i'd be grateful for any guidance.

and, btw, episdoe one of Planet Earth 2 on BBCA last night is beyond.... just freaking off the charts…

couldn't get out of bed. the media is the enemy of the people? or whatever that fucking agent orange said. & an attempt at my Daily Gratitude Journal post.

finally dragged myself in to the living room. thank godiverse for Critters that need to be fed and to have their litter boxes cleaned and their wee wee pads dealt with. it's so entertaining the way my Gigantic Transgender Kitty folds the edges over to cover cocoa's deposits. cats are so tidy. annoying as shit but total neatniks. he has a new thing of lurking around corners and leaping out to terrorize cc. he loves her so much and he's doing his best but he's like the guy in first grade who…

as if the ice raids weren't terrifying and evil enough, well, seems we have another out and proud white supremacist advising drumpf. wearing a nazi symbol every day.

this is so exhausting. evil is enervating as shit. i've dealt with it since i was 2 years old. lived with it. but discussing the nuclear codes in public? managing to not appoint not even one reasonable person to his cabinet. the one black person is a delusional narcoleptic.

and intelligent people are still on board.…
