Ahhh my last post had so much hope. We are now closing the first week on Emperor Orange Baby Bitch Tiny Fists reign of terror. It’s going to be a long four years. Because even if he was impeached, his VP is just as awful. And after that? Paul Assface Ryan.
BUT on the 21st, the entire world got to see something amazing. Women marching in cities all over the country. Over 4 million people marched to say WE MATTER. That was beautiful. All the signs were amazing. The message was loud and clear. And even through a media blackout, we are seeing people stand up and say NO.
My mother in law has decided anyone who opposes EOBBTF is personally insulting her. Especially anyone she’s ever helped. I know. I know. The cheese has slid right off her cracker. She literally asked the husband to come to her house and sit down and listen to HER views. She wouldn’t listen to one word he said, she’d only immediately start ranting about socialism and China. She’s always had opposing view points than us. We survived the Bush years just fine together. Lots of heated arguments but they were always backed up in fact which was fun and enriching for everyone. I don’t know what happened but that’s no longer the case. What bothers me the most is that’s her son she’s ranting at without one care for his feelings or experiences. That sit down will not be happening.
It’s been over a month since our General and Princess Carrie Fisher passed away. I have yet to read something about her or talk about her without crying. Her ripples went far and wide. The loss of her left this huge void in a lot of people’s hearts. And not just because she was Princess Leia. She was a brilliant writer. Just a regular conversation with her was full of energy and wisdom both blunt and hidden. It’s like she understood and saw the universe better than anyone else. Debbie, her mother, passed away a day later. So whatever was left of my broken heart then burst into dust. I’m a huge Gilmore Girls fan but Carrie and Debbie should have had a tv show. The two of them together…I can’t even describe it. But there’s two pieces of Carrie that she left with us, one little and one big. Gary her dog and her talented and almost equally comedic daughter Billie. If you don’t know her yet, IMDB her and watch Scream Queens. She has that quick wit and that Carrie-like ability to read a room and bring it all together.
I have to admit, I had a little twinge of jealousy to see a mom have such love for her baby girl. My mom most certainly will never be like that. Even on the good days.
