It's become very hard to live in America under the current President and his administration - albeit an ever-shrinking administration, it's still got it's key assholes in there making things worse by the day. Tillerson has been dismantling the state department; eliminating women, people of color and anyone left from the Obama administration. And he's... Continue Reading →
Hello! Just a quickie here. I had an appearance in district court today on my violating bail conditions. The prosecutor was a real bitch to my attorney, wanted me to do 10 days and pay a $400 fine...my attorney tried to negotiate, but this prosecutor was a BITCH. So, in the end it got continued...

The weekend has been relatively uneventful. Lots of napping with my dogs, puttering around the house at various chores like laundry and playing on the computer. I am finding that winter - or cold weather in general - keeps my energy level down and I don't have much motivation to do anything outside the house. ... Continue Reading →
I have just had the pleasure of reading a most outstanding piece on Huffpost called "Redefining Butch-femme Relationships", by Georgia Kollas, writer, Huffington Post blogger, and cultural observer. I loved it! It could not have been any better! I encourage all of you to give it a good read! Also, Ms. Kollas is a self-identified... Continue Reading →
This past weekend was a pretty rough one for me. I didn't do much. I had so much on my mind that I felt paralyzed and couldn't focus on doing anything constructive. So I spend much of it watching TV, listening to news, surfing the web and hibernating in my house. I didn't see a... Continue Reading →
I got home from an 8 hour shift at work this afternoon to be greeted by 3 - THREE ! - fat envelopes in my mail from my attorney. Fuck. One was the discovery from my last run in and lock up incident in Portland. The second...was about a hearing on a motion to terminate... Continue Reading →
It's Sunday and I've felt really down and depressed all damned day. I just re-blogged a post from Sam Dylan Finch of LetsQueerThingsUp.com, and he really nails it with some great advice and suggestions on how to help yourself when you're feeling out of whack like I am today. I even checked out the tele-therapist... Continue Reading →
This week at LQTU, I’m dialing things back a little and sharing some things that I’m a fan of.
I’m not sure if the internet is tapped out on self-care articles (I mean, how many times are we going to be told to take a bubble bath? Apparently at least a hundred times). But as someone who relies on these tools to keep my depression and OCD at bay, I personally think the world can still benefit from conversations like these.
Especially if some of those resources are cute, queer, and/or created with neuroatypical folks in mind. In my opinion, we can never get enough of those.
Lately, I’ve got some favorite self-care resources that I’ve relied on to keep myself sane. They’re sweet and simple, but more importantly, they’re effective and they’re accessible. I’m compiling them in one place, hopefully to make them easy to find and share for…

Yes, I've been moving carefully this last week. Making damned sure that everything I own is legal and I'm not going to get into any type of trouble...like even get stopped for a traffic infraction. I'm knuckling down hardcore, and I think it's making my bestie a bit uncomfortable. I'm serious, I want nothing to... Continue Reading →
