Nearing the end of my second week contracting for my former/current (?) employer/client. It's been an adjustment due to weather and shitty home conditions (family). I've applied for a second job. I hope I get it, because I really, REALLY need to move.

Politics is still a shit show. Truths reveal themselves daily, and as expected the Republicans do nothing.

It hit 115 today. The heat is killing me. As I get older the less tolerance I have for the excessive heat. I drove in my air conditioned car for a few hours. Thank goodness for that.

Returned to work on Monday. My boss brought me back with more pay and more hours, but the catch is I'm now a contractor, not an employee. Whatever. I wasn't getting benefits anyways as an employee. Plus I can work my own hours and from home.

Trump is still an embarrassing Putin puppet. The Republicans are still spineless little worms. So nothing new on that front. 

I wanted to sketch Paul Ryan, but I didn't feel like doing anything. The heat just sucks the life outta me.

I heard Wacom's Bamboo Ink was out and decided to try it out. It BLOWS away the Surface Pen, in terms of EVERYTHING. Best $70 I've spent in a while. 

Haven't sketched/drawn in six months. It feels GOOD to sketch again. I'm a bit rusty tho. It took me forever to get into the flow of sketching again. Which may explain why I sketched this asshole, Mitch McConnell waaay better looking than he deserves to be. I should've made him bald with super big eyes and a super small mouth.

No worries, I'll do better next time.

Watch out Paul Ryan. I'll be sketching you next.

Because I'm a glutton for punishment, I've decided to binge watch season five of House of Cards.

Why not?

Who cares if real life mirrors fiction and vice versa. At least President Frank Underwood is sexy, cunning and intelligent. While Trump is ugly and stupid. Even though I'm living through the real thing, I'm at the edge of my seat watching House of Cards' Underwood hold on to his Presidency.

Couldn't have said it better myself. In the US the traditional divide has always (well mostly been) Republican vs Democrat. Now it's Republican vs Americans. Current day Republicans are spineless traitors to the American people. How much longer will these fools stay silent?!

HAHAHAHA!!!This is the best thing he has done.

Since I was hired as a temp employee, I have a cap on the amount of hours I can work. This coming Thursday I will run out of hours for this fiscal year. The good news is they want me to come back after July 1st, which is the start of the new fiscal year. So basically I'll be out of work for one month. 

Honestly, I'm sorta looking forward to the month long break. I desperately NEED IT! I'm so burn-out on life. I need a break. Sure things will be tight financially, but I think it'll be ok. 

Even though they want me back, frankly, I don't want to go back. I need a job that will pay me what I'm worth. I was hired as an intern, with intern level pay, but with mid to senior level responsibility. While the rest of the interns did light filing, answering phones and the occasional light image edits, I was tasked with creating a new department website from scratch. All the while coordinating with three dysfunctional departments who do not share information. Not to mention, the heavy design tasks outside of webdesign work. 

And the kicker is, I'm not even a web designer! LOL


The problem is, I don't know what I want to do, or where I want to work. I guess it's time for me to stop making excuses and just apply to jobs that are interesting to me and see where it takes me. Hopefully one of them can give me break and hire me :)

 I like them.



Oh boy. What's wrong with me? A few years ago, I would have laughed at the idea, but now, not so much. Maybe in my old age I'm getting desperate.

At the time, his angry and desperate tone so much reflected mine. Five months ago things looked bleak. It looked like no one in Congress and especially in the media were willing to question and stand up to Trump. 

What a difference five months make. After a series of very serious blunders the talk of impeachment is growing louder by the day--and rightfully so! I'm encouraged by bipartisan show of unity by liberals and #NeverTrump conservatives. 

I can finally see the end of this nightmare, even if it's in the far distance.

#ImpeachmentWatch continues!

What treachery will Trump unleash tomorrow? Stay Tuned...

Keep this up you orange monster, your impeachment will be here sooner rather than later.

I had to step back last night and avoid posting. Hearing about the firing of former FBI Director James Comey and the confirmation of multiple Grand Juries regarding Trump's Russia connection made me off the walls crazy LOL.

First i was waaay down and enraged. Having the guy who is investigating you, fired is not a good look no matter who you are. It makes Trump look guilty. And well he is.

Then upon hearing about the confirmation of the Grand Juries from CNN, had me less angry and more hopeful. The news wasn't a huge surprise, because Claude Taylor, Louise Mensch, John Schindler and Keith Olbermann have been talking about that subject for a few weeks now. They were ahead of the msm by weeks. And the same people are now talking about coming indictments, which has put me in a much better mood. 

As usual Olbermann is spot on. His somber mood accurately reflects the serious and alarmed tone of the nation.

 Since when is telling the truth a cause for celebration? In the Trump era, the truth is like a rare unicorn--it's not seen everyday, but when it surfaces it's a sight to behold. That unicorn is Sally Yates. She told the truth and defended it like a champion.

Like always, Keith Olbermann summarizes the Sally Yates and Michael Flynn fiasco quite nicely.

Dear Tooth Fairy,

My sister is stupid and starting up with that whole "I'm going to die from an imagined tooth/mouth infection" again.


So Tooth Fairy please do me a solid and just remove all her teeth. Problem solved.

Thanks for listening!

Orange Monster

Har har har! We're so proud of ourselves. We took the first step to cut essential healthcare for millions of people. Cancer? Congenital birth defects? Sexual assault victims? Sorry you're all outta luck! No pre-existing health conditions allowed! For the rest of you don't ever get sick because you won't be covered for anything. Either that or get a job with health coverage, I mean every employer that ever existed offers great health coverage and it's not like great paying jobs are finite or anything. If you think about it, it's really your fault for being such losers and poor sacks of shit! Be rich like us--problem solved!

These rules don't apply to us, we are covered under the old ObamaCare rules that includes coverage for pre-existing health conditions, because we are special and better than you.

America, no hard feelings! Yeah, ok you and your loved ones will may die, but look it's for the best. Us one percenters are struggling too you know. I mean the tax breaks from this bill will help fund essentials like a new yacht, a few new gold toilets and maybe a totally sick (pun intended) Aston Martin with diamond encrusted wheels. See, waay more important than human lives.

In closing, we worship the powerful and almighty god of money, greed and corruption. In other words we don't give a fuckin shit about you or your sick babies, unless of course they can be used for our political gain. The religious right are such morons they buy into simplistic terms like "pro-life" without realizing they are anything but...

Anyways enjoy your life! And remember...don't get sick! Or ELSE!

All the best,

Your House Republicans and Friends

I hope Louise Mensch and others are correct about the status on the #RussiaGate investigations, because the orange monster doesn't know what the hell he is doing.

Cute :)

Like usual Keith is spot on about Trump and the 100 day mark.

My mom thought it would be nice/appropriate to send my uncle a condolence card regarding the passing of his daughter (my cousin). Each of us will write a message and sign it.

I'm awful at writing/expressing condolences. I don't want to say too much to the point where it gets weird and painful, but I don't want to say too little where it looks like I don't care. Eventually I give up and search google for helpful messages. I don't copy them outright, but they certainly help to formulate my own message.

Anyways while searching for helpful messages I found this site that will sell you a CD full of condolence/sympathy messages for $24.99. Great idea except the writing is horrible! I would never pay a cent for any of these. Here are some of my favorites:

"I am at once sorry and relieved to hear of Jane's passing. Like all of you, I loved and admired her dearly. Few people can be a productive as she was throughout her life. Because she was so bright and had such vitality, I am sure she would have suffered greatly had she lived much longer in her condition. Although we hate to lose her, we are glad she didn't have to suffer long. Sometime in the near future I would like to bring some photos of your mother from our college days. Please let me know when that would be appropriate.
I get what the author is trying to say, but it just comes off as tone-deaf and offensive. Might as well write  "Whew...good thing Jane died. It was getting bad up in here." LOL

"I am sorry to hear that after a valiant battle with cancer your father has passed on. It seems unfair that his illness was properly diagnosed only three months ago and he is already gone. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends who must now accept this sudden reality. I hope good memories can help ease the pain of this loss."
LOL. At this point just write "He dead and went quick! Suck it up because the man is a goner" gives the same impression of callous disregard. 

There are more examples on the site that are equally bad.
