this is gross whatevs

Monday

A rare day when I’m wearing my hair down at work. No particular reason why, but I am. The sunrise was really pretty this morning on the drive in. There was frost out in the fields and a little bit of fog still hanging over the valleys. I would’ve snapped a picture, but driving. This morning Navyy sent me a text to say that she was heading home early because she’s still feeling crummy from whatever gross virus she’s been dealing with for the past week. Send her some healthy vibes. I think the rest of our household is healthy, though, so that’s good. Warmer weather (at least for MN in October) this week. Enjoying the cool mornings as well as the sun and fall colors. Spring is still my favorite, but I’ll always enjoy a nice long fall.

this was supposed to be a valentine’s drawing but i immediately hated it about an hour in so uh

i finished it before i could no longer bear to look at it

+ close up because i spent time on drawing that grass just to blur it

my kinda boyfriend person took me to build a bear today for my birthday and he chose a sound to put in it and like he wouldn’t let me know what sound it was and he said I couldn’t listen until we got in the car so I was kinda worried bc I thought it was going to be super vulgar or sappy and gross or whatever but we leave build a bear and I press my bear’s hand and it just makes this super loud velociraptor sound.

Giraffe Boy gets a Giraffe Mug for his rainy day at the café ♡

Here’s the thing. 

If these people had just, like, shown up to protest the removal of that Confederate statue, fine. Whatever. They’d still be gross shitheads, but they’d be gross shitheads using their right of assembly and free speech. Whatever. 

But these neo-nazi white supremacist mother fuckers showed up in Nazi regalia, throwing up nazi salutes, shouting anti-Semitic slogans and “heil trump” with their fucking Walmart Tiki torches like the reject extras from Birth of a Nation. 

And you start waving around Nazi symbols, shouting nazi slogans, marching with fucking burning torches- you are trying to inspire FEAR. You are trying to terrorize others. You are a terrorist. 

  And last time I checked, free speech doesn’t protect terrorism. 

“What I didn’t realize, back when I was this twenty-five-year-old pinup for geeks in that me myself and iconic metal bikini, was that I had signed an invisible contract to stay looking the exact same way for the next thirty to forty years. Well, clearly I’ve broken that contract. Partly because, in an effort to keep up my disguise as a human being, I had a child at some point. And then, in an effort to stay sane for said child, I took pounds and pounds of medications that have the dual effect of causing water retention (think ocean, not lake) while also creating a craving for salad—chocolate salad. So yes, in answer to your unexpressed question, sanity does turn out to come at a heavy price.
