One-Line Bio

Just another ambulatory meat suit looking for a dance with the pinball wizard, and you?

Biography

Blog DOB: January 3, 2007

Crap. A bio, now? Globally, we're neck deep in a septic field called:

The Human Race & COVID-19. Watch it now, before it gets away!

I write when I can. I try to keep it under 2,000 words but sometimes I look down and I'm at 6,800. I got nanowrimo (they still do that?) whooped.

I'm sticky with metaphor; it can't be avoided, take a look up there.

I piss people off. I'm good with that, people piss me off too.

I lean toward self-righteous judgement. Sorry about that; try to remember it's not actually about you (see?! I just did it again).

That written, misbehave out here and I'll delete you so fast you won't even know you're gone. Speaking of which, I had a friend once who unfriended me (YES, that is now a verb) because I was constantly upset with him. It took me three weeks to notice. See? It is *not* all about you except for the times when you lean toward enlightenment, look into the painted abyss, and mutter

Shit. That's me.

Once, a long time ago, I visited a blogger I admired greatly but had difficulty dealing with the prickly side up business. It used to wear me out something fierce.

Currently: I'm learning about boundaries. et. al.

Anyway, blogger decides I need to know that another blogger referred to me as a Train Wreck. Train Wreck Blogger was literally one of the sweetest women I've ever known. The juxtaposition was disorienting. I had to take the statement as it was, understanding I was missing the context... which isn't really the point, is it?

Lastly (I hope) as of today, April 21, 2020, there are just under 2,000 published posts on this site. If you're a blog miner, good luck with all that.

Be safe. Be kind. Wash your hands, wear your mask, don't touch your face, and YES, dammit, you should be wearing gloves. Just try not to be an asshole about it (same argument applies to masks, so don't be an asshole about those either)

Statistics as of April 20, 2020:

Cases Deaths
Global 2,531,804 171,810
US 810,276 44,234
New York 242,786 13,869
Westchester 24,306 776
New Castle ??? 61

New York: No longer a global leader; we're slowing down. Or the world is speeding up. Don't really want to do the math at the moment. On a bright front, Westchester got its own refrigerated morgue truck yesterday. Yes. Yes that is very good news. Think about it.
