U.S. Pol - Snark 

Me (returning to Le Birdhouse to finally rake in the clout and snuggles that I've always deserved) :

Sanders, no less than Pelosi, is a major impediment to positive change. Retire, Bitches!

Well, damn. That could've gone better.

I have another small art project on the back burner. If you're comfortable with languages besides English, I'd love your help with it:

What's the most coherent and/or poetic way to translate the following sentence:

"Will the rose survive?"

I know online translators exist, but they're not always sufficient.

Thanks in advance. β˜•

US Pol - "Friendly Fascism" 

Without anti-militarism (or anti-interventionism) your anti-fascism is doomed to be as frail and hollow as a blown-out egg. :(

Dining Habits Of The Rich & Famous 

I just assume that each of them has a designated meal-taster, just like royalty in the past had.

I keep hopefully scanning Indeed and CL, but all I see is Uber/Lyft shit and requests for my plasma. Crud. Everyone's in the loop EXCEPT me, as usual. 🎭

What if we allowed ourselves to enjoy things and also talk about their problems?

So we can continue to make things better

Putting on a production of *Hamilton* in Dad's barn but it's all in Russian because I want to break the brain of every U.S. Liberal foolish enough to show up.

Kidding On The Square About Gender & Class & Race & Such 

@xenophora

"we need someone who's sort of like roger stone for neoliberalism just by existing and opening his mouth, but with conservative credentials. make sure he's racist, but in a way that appeases white moderates, consciously or not"

enterprising, up-and-coming Rahm wannabe: i know a guy

Kidding On The Square About Gender & Class & Such 

Remember that the 1980s gave us *Real Men Don't Eat Quiche* and *Real Women Don't Pump Gas* and they were best-sellers. The 1980s were bad, bad, bad & any old fart who tries to tell you otherwise has either lost their long-term memory or never had any in the first place.

do you keep a (daily) diary?

Life With Cats: A Late Fall 2020 Playlet 

Me: (between indelicate slurps of coffee) So... what've we got planned for today, Cat?

: I don't know about you, but my agenda includes trying to sneak out of the house & almost getting mashed between the inner and outer doors. Also I'm gonna' turn on Dad's c-pap machine so it runs all day before he notices. Neat, huh?

Me: [groan]

Cat: You seem less than chipper & motivated today. Here, let me put my tail-tip in your coffee. That should help. 🐾

Art-y (& Only Slightly Tech-ish) Thoughts 

ipernity succumbed to a possible hack on or around Nov. 25th, but now it's working again so I'm feeling a bit better. At least now I can round my year's production of uploaded pictures up to 50. (This is half of what I did last year and the year before, but of course I wasn't holding down a job back then.)

"New Weather " - Almost-square "parchment" background tinted turq. blue & marked w/tiny blue & white stars & 9 raised snowflakes. At bottom: 1 blue & 1 green slope (or hillside). At center of comp: stylized crested blue bird made of blue triangles, little blue spheres for joints, a 1930s barometer for a head, and a 1940s wristwatch & brown brushstrokes on midsection. Feet are "melted" gold color 1950s earrings.

"Minty" - Squ. comp. in red & pink quarters turned & trimmed w/4 streaky white triangles to form a thick "X" shape. Red is textured w/warped compass shapes, pink w/faded green leaves. Center of the "X" is a green "marble" square w/a thin circle cutaway line. At the circle's center is a standing, angled door in green & pink w/gold trim. Other decorations: pink octagonal clocks at top & bottom attached to a thick white scroll shape coiled just outside the circle.

welp i may not have an organized file of receipts, but i'm just gonna... document this

fediverse mods, you may want to be aware of any new accounts from ErrorTheWolf. they didn't take no for an answer when it comes to like ...not getting creepy at Kat,

then immediately started revving up the alts to block-evade, putting a mod noticing said block evasion front and center on their new profile. so i'm guessing that more of this is going to happen in the future.

Lunch Plans (Vegetarian) 

Fixing bean and cheese burritos from scratch* only because mr_xeno has flooded the fridge with sauce packets from That Giant Quasi-Mexican Chain and I'm tired of a wave of them falling on my shoes every time I go to get a glass of ice water and something *had* to be done about them. :P

*ok the tortillas came from the store. sorry. :o

What this means for you, Citizen McRando who lives on planet Earth and within its material conditions: you may qualify for about $4,800 over four months, if they pass this as it is, which they won't. If you don't, or they just cut that, it means you can't sue your boss for making you sick. Nor can you sue any pharma corporations who use you as an unwitting guinea pig by releasing insufficiently-tested drugs or vaccines, as I understand it.

US Pol, The Arts, Etc. 

I vote off-road AND I butcher poetry in other languages by running it through deepl. I feel like both these bizarre and quixotic practices must be generated from the same unwanted and uncalled-for section of the human brain. πŸ€” β˜• β˜• β˜•
