Welcome
Within the pages of my journal you will find mostly rants and commentary on topics of concern to me. Currently, those would include the illegal occupation of Iraq, human rights, the threat of theocracy, and the U. S. Presidency of Barack Obama.

If these things interest you as well, read on. If you wish to engage in attack debate, simply move on. I won't respond to you. If you are interested in honest debate, and have an open mind, then I welcome you.

Oh, and one more thing. I believe Bush 43 was the worst president ever to hold that office in the history of the United States. I am unashamed of that opinion.

Truth
If your actions harm no one, then they are ethical. The reverse is not necessarily true.

Lupus Advocacy Day 2011

How I feel: frustrated

Lupus kills. Today is Lupus Advocacy Day 2011. It's too late for Barbara, but maybe we can save someone else. We need more research.

Just had to share this with everyone

Where I am: 77095
How I feel: touched

Santa Left a Forwarding Address: The North Pole - Sarah Klein for the NY Times

“Have you seen the letters?” I overheard a girl in a hair-sprayed beehive ask her friend, who was wearing a skinny tie.

“Have you seen the letters?” I heard when I waited to get myself a spiced eggnog and some shrimp cocktail.

I was intrigued, and when Jim, our tall, rosy-cheeked, cardigan-clad host, came barreling up to me, I had to ask: “Jim, what are these letters everyone is talking about?”
OK, anyone who knows me, knows that I am the quintessential Grinch. I have no use for Christmas. I differ from the well-known Grinch only in that I don't begrudge others their celebration. I do ask that they don't push it in my face.Read more...Collapse )

It's been six months, and I'm feeling philosophical

Where I am: 77095, where else?
How I feel: sleep deprived

Won't you join me? Seriously, an open invitation for telling me where you think I am wrong. Can you honestly pass that up?

How I feel: in pain

Visit to psychiatrist today

It was interesting, in the Chinese Curse sense of the word. Ah well, life is.

My Wow Characters

Where I am: 77095
How I feel: geeky

Prior to the upgrade, I was playing the basic edition. As a result, there were certain races I could not play. The one that bothered me most was the lack of the Draenei. That looked like a really fun race.

Today, I created my first Draenei character, and made her a Paladin. Yes, I said “her”. All my characters in WoW are female. Hey, it’s fantasy, right? Might as well take it all the way. Without further ado, here she is: Continue reading

Switching Off Comcast

Where I am: 77095
How I feel: satisfied
In the background: lawn crew down the street

I did some research, and this past week I shut off Comcast Cable / Internet. I’ve had ongoing issues with the quality of service, as well as consistency of service and pricing. Over the last several months, my bill hadn’t been the same amount two months in a row, and I wasn’t buying pay-per-view. Oh, it only varied a few dollars from month to month, but I could never explain why it varied at all. There were frequent service interruptions, both on TV and internet, but almost never both at the same time. Continue reading →

Not about Cymbalta and depression.

If you still bother to read my blog, you'll be happy to know I can write about something else...

Fun with Cymbalta, HMOs, and specialists

Where I am: Home
How I feel: aggravated

In case you are wondering what's been up with me:

20 freaking days to get in to see a psychiatrist while I deal with the effects of abrupt discontinuance of a drug you are never supposed to do that with. Clearly, this is not going to be fun.

Since I worried so many people...

Go read this post on my blog.

The Dangers of Cymbalta

Also, I begged and pleaded and got my job back, conditionally. I am on a short mental health sabbatical. I still don't know if I can downsize enough to live on my reduced income, but I have to try.
