Theodora L'Engle Knight's Blog – November 2016 Archive (12)

lovely day: crafts/coloring for adults (yes, i know...) with my 2 good friends here in subsidized senior heaven & shopping with CC at fred meyer/kroger -- our other homw away from home

okay, now, please try not to be jealous of my exciting life. not everyone can handle this kind of breakneck pace. it takes hard work and discipline and dedication and a lot of downtime to recoup. olympic level tv watching and feline and canine management -- the weekly interspecies family meetings alone could break a lesser homo sapiens. there are just so many times you can hear your critters tell you that you have an Attitude Problem before you begin to break down. and then there is the…

a swastika on a mirror, a meeting shown on tv where people gave the nazi salute, but also visiting the groomer & huge great dane puppy & a brave man being very kind to me.

i was so afraid of this but i never dreamed that it would start so soon or that it would happen in my neighborhood. i was so naive. i thought that because it's an affluent area but also has many apartments complexes where students live. i was comforting myself that this is a safe place. i was a fool.

Kosher, i need to read the post of a post that you posted about this country not being a safe haven for our people anymore. i am so scared to read it because it is already obvious to me…

Open Call? a la OS? What is your favorite poem and why? (i'm completely ignorant of this genre so you are also doing a great service!)

this is a stupid idea but i'm going to keep this post up just in case someone besides me and zanelle wants to share a poem!

this is a tough time and there is so much fear and negativity. creativity seems to be our best antidote, our…

major inspection of my apartment. i'm not handling it well. some chocolate chips dropped in some cleaner, unbeknownst to me, and i freaking ate them.

of course eating backing soda mixed with Method spray is the least of my problems right now. and these are the delights of stress, man. and this freaking Housing Authority which everyone in the building has to deal with regularly. the Organization has some major assholes. i call it DMV power where people don't feel in control of their lives so they lord it over those who are dependent on them for help. it's creepy and pathetic.

we get scared enough when they announce an inspection…

i'm almost finished with The Crown and,, it's surprising, but no one has grabbed anyone's pussy. Also, Westworld. is it manageable for a Squeamish Person?

i'm so freaking pissed off. turns out i'm allergic to Gary Cooper the Gigantic Transgender Kitty along with dust mites and grass and just Life in General. my sinuses have rebelled because they are big wusses. it's not pretty.

The Crown is excellent. so well-written and acted and all that jazz. i have one tiny beef with it, something that takes me out of the story from time to time, but it's not a major deal. they have so much story to tell that we almost never see the kids. almost not…

Drumpf in the White House and Purelle/bad bipolar 2 manias/depression/agoraphobia (AG) /the blessing of service dogs for invisible disabilities/and more...Part One

i got up late. i always get up late which i will explain in a moment. i had left the tv on. big big big mistake. so the first thing i saw when i walked in to the living room was DRUMPF in the freaking White House with OBAMA. shaking hands. walking side by side. even in the Oval Office i think. and i wanted to take my eyes out of my head and wash them thoroughly in purell. i wanted to coat our current president in that same sanitizer. i couldn't get my mind around it and i went right back to…

i am so furious with all of you people who told me that this was a fucking slam dunk. i knew that it was not.

i knew it. this is so scary. and i knew it was going to be this close. and all the fucking pundits in general and on here... this is so fucked up. he's on his way to 270 votes. these races are freaking too close to call. new hampshire is too close to call!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i just want to jump off something.

what the freak are we going to do? i can't make it through this evening? can't even watch MSNBC. they are so shocked and surprised. we are…

did anyone listen to the latest episode of This American Life? apparently the scandal is that HRC knows nothing about tecnnology. NOTHING AT ALL!!!

if this story is correct -- and TAL is not known for telling tall tales -- then it turns out that hillary does not know how to use a desk top computer. which is actually kind of more disturbing than the incriminating emails. she doesn't know how to you use a smartphone. only the blackberry. and an older model of a blackberry that no one else uses. if this is true, and, again, i don't know why anyone would have made this up. the person telling the story sounded as shocked as i feel right…

the positive addictions that get myself and my wonderpup through the rough rough rough times: the hamilton cast album, trick and treat and the pop culture happy hour npr podcast!!

(this is so boring and poorly written and i don't recommend that anyone read it but it's really just for me because i want to celebrate the good things in my life, the things that make me not jump off my building one day at a time and that allow me a sliver of hope at this insane and creepy time in history.)

so, okay, this is not original in the least. but i am addicted to the Hamilton cast album! i tend to doubt that i will ever see the live show but, fuck, as my people in Boston…

i know i'm not supposed to worry but i just watched Real Time With Bill Maher and i'm scared shitless. i know, i know. it's all going to be okay.

maher has strong opinions and hates religion and all kinds of things. but he not generally paranoid. and he's terrified right now. he made lots of jokes, of course. but his heart wasn't in it.

it's going to be okay. maybe. if people turn out to vote. it will be okay. latino voting went up 139 %. but given what drumf said about building a wall and mexicans are rapists, it should be 500 %. that is the good news. for it to be okay, blacks and young people and white women have to show up.…

something is seriously wrong on here. the comments on my "the humiliation of finding a housecleaner when you are a packrat/hoarder" post are just gone!!! plus doing standup again!

wtf????? i read a whole lot of comments on that post. i responded to a whole lot of comments and i came to take a look at this post, thinking about editing it and there are not only no comments, but there is no place to make comments.

i never had this problem on OS. i've never had it on here to this extent. the other day i found that my comments were disappearing. not all the time. but often enough to be upsetting.

does anyone know what is going on and how i might be able to…
