Divisiveness: not just for politics anymore

Pramas recently updated his blog with some commentary on divisive politics ( Real Americans ) that pretty much exactly matches what I would have to say on the topic. I’ve just had no time to post recently I was just going to do a simple "Me too" and link to it but something else caught [...]

Hint to voters: GOP means REPUBLICAN

I cannot believe this needs to be said but apparently it does.

REPUBLICANS in Washington state do not want to run for political office as REPUBLICANS these days. I’ve noticed this in ads and signs this campaign season, “Vote for Jon Doe, GOP” but not, never, “REPUBLICAN” anywhere to be seen. Dino Rossi, the [...]

Procrastination by way of rant

I’m getting ready for the annual Green Ronin Summit in just under a month and have a to-do list that started at three legal pages long (both personal and business-related).

Topsy Turvy World

Today it was 52 and raining. Friday they’re predicting record highs, 89-90 degrees. The teachers at my daughter’s school briefed them on “appropriate dress” which included lots of warnings about tank tops, muscle shirts, and shorts that are “too short” (more than one inch above the knee). Yow.

Meanwhile a friend of mine was telling [...]

Holy shit, that went poorly

Ok, so today I was really pissed off about a lot of things. I decided, however, that I wasn’t going to write about my frustrations. Ex-husbands, failing computer hardware, being raked over the coals for a conversation that took place and was resolved over two years ago, my daughter’s stress-inducing class trip and her frustrating [...]
