Dear Kathy Griffin,

Please go home. You made the decision to go big or go home and you lost. You knew this photo shoot was going to be controversial when you were doing it and now you’re crying crocodile tears. Do you know why you lost this battle? Because you caved to pressure. You apologized when you shouldn’t have. Stand by your convictions or stop standing up for things if you can’t take the heat.

The Trump family is bullying you? Big surprise there, but let’s be honest, this is how many families would react when a family member is insulted. They rally the wagons, right or wrong. Let’s be honest again, Kathy, you’ve been a bully to other people a number of times over the years, doesn’t feel too good to be on the receiving end now does it?

Death threats? Again, how did you not see that coming? Trump has an incredible amount of orc-shit crazy supporters. Apparently, no one warned you about poking crazy people.

Throwing metal bands who have been criticizing politicians for eons under the bus? Cowardly. Don’t blame other protesters for getting away with things that you couldn’t. You tried to make it about the fact that you’re a woman and they’re men so they didn’t get punished. No. They didn’t get punished because they have the backbone to stand up to their actions and suffer any consequences. Example: GWAR’s response was 100% GWAR; “GWAR doesn’t apologize. Ever.” 

Lastly, the picture wasn’t even good. The metal bands all did it better.

SCIENCE!

I won’t pretend that the current presidential administration hasn’t inspired me to do many things in opposition to them. Peaceful protest, signing numerous petitions, watching politics closely, no longer restraining my tongue against ignorance, supporting the free press, educating myself on the issues and researching politicians.

A recent discussion with The Shameful Narcissist and then with my husband, has fueled yet another quest in opposition. I’ve felt for a few years now that I missed my calling as a biologist, so after we purchase our first house, we’re both going to look into going back to school. Myself for environmental science and my husband for information technology. As my husband so eloquently said, “There’s no reason not to.”

Unfortunately neither one of us can quit our jobs and go to school full time (especially after buying a house) so it will be several years before I can even complete my Associate’s Degree but I’m excited none the less. FOR SCIENCE!

New Section

Let’s face it. If you’ve been following this blog for any amount of time, I am not a quiet woman. I’m starting a new section of this blog to dedicate to political things. Now, maybe you come here for the book reviews, or baking recipes or cute pet photos, those things will still be my main focus. But, as a woman, living in Trump nation, well, I’ve got some shit to say about that.

So if you don’t like it, feel free to skip those ones by. Or unfollow me. Because here’s the thing, I’ve spent most of my life not giving two fucks if someone likes me and now that I’m older and even more comfortable in my skin, I don’t give three fucks if someone likes me.

With all that sass being said, introducing  –Light My Fire.

This is real. This is not a drill.

I have no intentions of making this a political blog, despite my intent to become much more politically active. But, I think some of us could use a little lift-me-up, some inspiration as we wrap our heads around recent events.

My personal motto for the next four years:

“Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”

Also important to remember:

“First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Trade Socialist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me – and there was no one left to speak for me.”

Therefore, I reserve the right to change my mind and speak out on MY blog. I originally began this as a place to rant anonymously, I calmed down over the years. I’m not calm anymore and I can’t care to remain anonymous.

Polly Pissy Pants Post

So that hideous rash? HIVES. Hives that I cannot figure out why the fuck they are plaguing me. To every single person who has had to experience this, I’m sorry. You do not deserve this type of warfare befall upon yourself for simply existing. Hopefully, you were able to discover the cause of your intense allergic reaction. I have not, and it is maddening. I am ready to flay myself. Where is Ramsey Bolton when you actually need a sadistic bastard to do your bidding?

Clearly, this has left me incredibly cranky and tired as shit. Having to fix not one but two vehicles didn’t help my mood either. Add to the fact, that I got nothing done that I had planned for the weekend. Polly Pissy Pants may be my new permanent title if these hives don’t fuck off.

My reading has been sporadic and delayed and quite frankly, all over the fucking place. I try to do myself the service of not reading more than two books at a time. But book ADD has kicked into full swing and I have four going at once. The fourth book is firmly blamed upon my younger cousin as I was hanging out with him today while the vehicle was being fixed and he insisted I read it. Damn book wyrm cousin! (I’m really enjoying it so far though so don’t read that as me actually being mad. It may be the one thing that did not make me cranky today.)

Still not entirely sure about this one. Characters are interesting but I’m little worn out on the werewolves = white trash trope. We’ll see how it ends before I give any official opinion on it.

I love George Carlin. I’m reading this on my lunches at work which is really the only way to read it. These are literally braindroppings. Anything he found mildly interesting and/or funny found their way here.

I want to be more one-with-the-Earth and in doing so, wanted to research more into Druidism. Borrowing this from a friend as a starting point.

This is the book my little cousin thrust at me. It was on my to-read list anyway and I had time to kill so why not? I’m about 75 pages in and it’s definitely intriguing.

Polly Pissy Pants OUT!

Hypocrisy

I don’t argue politics. Especially when I don’t have all the facts. (Why make yourself look like an idiot?) Apparently this is a evaporating (and quickly) characteristic no longer acceptable in today’s society.

You must choose one side or the other. There is no such thing as fence sitting.

But why would I want to choose a “side” when both genuinely make themselves look like idiots on a regular basis? WHY SIDE WITH IDIOTS AND HYPOCRITES?!

I’m not going to claim things should be a certain way when I don’t have all the facts and someone could easily call bullshit on me. Thanks to social media, I frequently see this happening. Facebook status’ slamming the very thing people do in their private lives.

For instance, all these little meme’s that say a person should stand alone and not depend on the government, all the while they’re living on STATE AID!

One example in thousands. Seriously, pay attention. How many hypocrites/idiots are on your friend’s list?

I bet that now that I’ve pointed it out, it will bug the shit out of you. I bet you start considering clicking that “unfriend” button in less than a week.
