The Situation at HQ

(In Progress)
Looking at the upcoming few days, I've decided the only logical thing to do is stay moderately high unless I'm planning to drive or talk to my parents.  Dealing with Buzz Kill on a daily basis requires fortification, and I am required to deal with Buzz Kill.

One thing about having Velvet home is that it sets a bad example to wake and bake.
Or at least, I think it does.

I'm feeling a lot like I hate the Patriarchy these days which reminds me that Cindy Lauper is a feminist icon, if you ask me.



I'm having a boarder again soon. She's a big lesbian with a Joan Jett tattoo who works as a freelancer for Comedy Central. Nothing stops Buzz Kill in his tracks like big, tattooed lesbians who know how to handle tools.

I haven't noticed a single beautiful thing ever since I started trying to notice Beauty.  I've been looking at A Course in Miracles and am toying with the idea that I don't understand a single fucking thing I see or hear.  It's easy to believe that with all the crazy shit going on in the world.

I've been thinking about Valentines' Day and the men on the periphery.  In the meantime I saw a video where Cornell West said something that sounded a lot like Martin Luther King, Jr. would say Barack Obama has facilitated the perpetration of the Military Industrial Complex.  Like there were no Valentines coming Barack's way from Cornell or MLK.

This year, my favorite Valentine is Woody Konopelli.  I'd rather not call it a Valentine, though.  He should be an addition to the Trailblazer Award I started handing out as a twist to the Stylish Blog award I received from Okjimm.  There were some other contenders to Valentine status this year, and one in particular is very nice, but Woody remains my blog crush because of his continued ability to distill a situation down to a diamond drill bit.  He's crotchety, so sometimes he makes as much noise as a drill, but it's just his way.

Dr. Monkerstein of Monkey Muck is another Valentine.  He is a trailblazer in his way too.

On a related note, I have to make a clarification regarding the Trailblazer thing.  Okjimm gave me the stylish blogger award, which looks like this:

Trailblazers doesn't look like anything.  I turned it into Trailblazers because I noticed that the bloggers I called Trailblazers were feminist role models a long time ago.  I always meant to say something about it here on the blog, but never got around to it.  The Stylish award presented a good opportunity to get around to it - I just called it "trailblazers" instead.

That's really funny.

I will have to check out those bloggers -- just need some more time!

Okay, good thing there's not a web cam on my home computer. I didn't even get through reading your post. I clicked on Cyndi, heard "She Bopp" which is my favorite of all her songs, and I was immediately up bopping around. Wow, I almost felt 20 again. Thanks.

I still haven't put up the blog awards I have gotten..I keep forgetting..

Yu'll go blind listening to that song ;-)

Maybe your tattooed lesbian could takeover Buzz Kill's household duties? Maybe that would stave him off for a while.

Thanks for mentioning me and for the award. I am undeserving but glad to have it.

mac, the work should almost be done by the time she gets here and besides, she's coming to NYC to stage manage the celebrity roast of Donald Trump. That will take all her time.

YDG, the best thing about Trailblazers is that you don't have to do anything with it ever - except keep living out loud

V.V. That would be something to see ;)

Susan, you and me both.

Dr. Monkey, I'm glad you like it because now you're going to make the graphic for it. Evidently the next set of bloggers who received it are posting the Stylish award. Can't have that. Make your mark, sir

A Joan Jett tattoo is pretty friggin Beautiful with a capital B.

Now that you mention it, Joan Jett is quite a trailblazer herself.

My friend Kathleen has written plays about waiting outside the bar to see Joan. That's where she met this very pleasant woman who will be boarding here in March. She's stayed here before and I like her
