adieu

Wed, 13 Jun 2012 15:06:28 +0000

ok i know i said this on shady's Ghost Town post but i wanted to make my own so it's seen by anyone looking specifically for me.

i'm done here. no hard feelings, it's just weird to keep creating content with no feedback from readers. i won't ever use facebook so, i won't ever be part of that group. it's been feeling lately like hanging around a party when the host is avoiding you, so i'm moving on with warm feelings for the years i've spent here. but in truth, for the last two or so years it's been rather anonymous, no feedback, keeping to non-personal topics like current events, and there are lots of places one can go for that.

full disclosure: the only overture toward hard feelings i have is, i did take issue a bit with the way my Occupy posts were handled. they were moved from my personal blog, which contains my name and signature, to "stories" crediting a "hipmama.com correspondent." this was done without asking me, and i didn't really like it. there was conversation after the fact because i initiated it, there was explanation and gratitude expressed for my work, but when i asked that each post be labeled with my name, that was not done. that's been in my craw for a while now, but obviously i wasn't angry per se, i continued to contribute and receive goodies in the mail for my gold stars. so i don't feel unappreciated really, i was just reminded whose site it is and how when i put stuff up here i'm giving it away. which ultimately is fine, i just feel that fairness would have dictated a conversation with me should have occurred prior to moving my shit around and coming to agreement on how it would look, and credit given to me personally. i've been here so many years, i don't know everything that will come to mind years from now when i look back on it, but unfortunately that maneuver will stick out, and that's the only part that makes me a bit sad. because it's been a fun ride otherwise.

after some tbd amount of time, i will abandon the email address associated with this account. but for a while, you should be able to get a hold of me through pm, which will bounce to my email and we can exchange info. i'm doing some pretty cool stuff, turning a corner, my kid's a teenager, i'm both stoked and sad to have outgrown hipmama.

take care everyone.




see? i told you obama was a great guy!

Mon, 21 May 2012 20:11:14 +0000

funny thing happened when i tried to comment to lynn's forum entry, i got a red warning that an illegal choice has been detected and i need to contact the site admin.

fired, yay!

Fri, 11 May 2012 02:10:46 +0000

why yay?

because for like the fourth time, within 24 hours of getting canned i have a new job, which is one i would have left this job for, and one i can actually be proud of and not lie at parties when asked what i "do."*

and... the circumstances around getting fired... i earned it. last time i got fired for walking off the job, which kinda is like an asterisk, i don't feel like i earned that one. this one... i did a thing, and that thing got me fired. and that thing was mildly entertaining and fun to do, and will only snowball into more entertaining, fun stories through the grapevine. i'm interested in hearing a year from now the story of what got me canned. don't get me wrong, i was shocked that it happened, i expected at most an eyeroll, or an accusation of immaturity. it was totally uncalled for and only makes them look silly, but i like it just the same.

i feel like i'm initiated into something. like i can check this off some list of shit everyone needs to experience once in their life.

and in all seriousness, i went from three part time jobs, to none, in one month. the second two were in a week from one another. the first i had to walk away from reluctantly, the second my boss got canned so i got the ax with him, and the third was all me. i worried, sent out texts to people i know doing great stuff and asked if they needed my help, expecting to volunteer so i don't go batshit with nothing to do with my days, and it turned out that one of these people had just been given notice from a paid staffer that he needs two years off for school. just like that. how bout that friggin shit?

* actually i don't lie per se, but i never actually admit what i really do for money. when asked what i do i usually say i write, train dogs, make silly drawings, or "as little as possible," which are all very true.

all doubt removed: i am depressed

Mon, 30 Apr 2012 04:26:12 +0000

but the cool thing about being old is i've handled so much different shit that i know how to handle this again. my depression regime involves using some substances, while avoiding others. also, surrounding myself with awesomeness. good art, good movies, good food, good friends. that last one is hard, particularly when your best friends are also depressed, or busy with something important.

so, goodbye alcohol, at least for now. sometimes a few weeks. sometimes a year or more, depends on when the depression resolves. my particular case doesn't involve the worst symptoms, i don't even consider harming myself. in fact i always, regardless of how i feel, take excellent care of myself. but i do withdraw. lose interest in things i've once loved, avoid people. it's an "ah, nevermind" attitude. about walking the dog, going to class, being on time for an important meeting, progressing into neverminding art, friends, making meals.

tonight, here, alone, i'm starting to feel like myself. if only i could be alone all the time, there'd be no problem.

so, this again. i have some supplements and foods to buy, think i'll enroll in a completely new art class but for now i need to get to bed, where i will stay as long as need be. btook the day off tomorrow.

good night.







somehow i just think this is incredibly cool:

"Norwegians raised their voices in unison on Thursday to get under the skin of admitted mass killer Anders Behring Breivik.

An estimated 40,000 people turned out in central Oslo's Youngstorget square to sing "Children of the Rainbow," a Norwegian version of "My Rainbow Race," written by American folk singer Pete Seeger.

During his trial for the killings of 77 people last summer, Breivik cited the song as an example of Marxist influence on Norwegian culture."

Unite against the War on Women! April 28

Wed, 25 Apr 2012 18:50:27 +0000

ok i'm getting cheeky with exclamation points and such, i don't know whether this event or organization is something i would really get behind but i wanted to publicize this in time for the ladies to make arrangements if it actually is something you wanna sign on to.

ok so go here

http://unitewomen.org/unite/april-28-events/

and poke around their site and see if you're down.

my only reason for withholding full endorsement is just cuz i like to look into whether it's some sham like moveon.org which is nothing but window dressing on the DNC, and i don't have time to do so in the near future. the phrase "war on women" perturbs me, because it smacks of DNC propaganda, and i ain't about to be anyone's tool. but a cursory look showed nothing objectionable, so i'm posting.

and the fact is, we probably would be well served to remind lawmakers that we're still here, and we still ain't buying their shit. no, birth control ain't controversial and ain't a friggin bargaining chip. neither are women's cancers, or laws protecting our safety.

ain't.
rhymes with taint.
makes me faint.

alright i have to get to work. happy protesting!
