Absent and present at the same time

Posted: May 24, 2017 in Health, Personal, Uncategorized

I haven’t posted in a VERY long time.   A combination of struggling with my ongoing depression (Herr Hair became President, need I say more?) and having moved into a house that needs renovation.  Without regaling you in the detailed horrors of renovation (Maybe I’ll do that later with bonus photos) suffice it to say that I lived with three kids in a house without a kitchen for two and a half months.  If I ever have to look at another delivery pizza, I think I just might vomit.

Anyway, like I said, I’ll share details of my recent drama later.  For now, I just wanted to share a link to a heartfelt and touching story of someone who was the victim of a hate crime.

So I’m here, sort of.  How about you?

    I haven’t been bullied in a very long time—I learned to avoid arseholes when I was still in elementary school—but I remember that sinking feeling when some meathead decided to take an irrational dislike to me. To the extent that a paunchy, balding, middle-aged, white, straight cis-male can reasonably claim to empathize with LaQuisha St Redfern, I do. Someday, maybe we humans will stop being quite so terrible to one another (I’m not holding my breath).

    Oh, and “a house that needs renovation” and “three kids in a house without a kitchen” are two of the scariest phrases in the English language.
