Good Monday Evening to you all...
The First Monday Evening in this new... regime, era, kingdom, Land of Oz.
I don't know what to call it... I just know my eyes are burning and my head is spinning trying to figure out what is going on.
All I know is that I was watching television this weekend with this look on my face.
Let's not talk about the wind.
There were a couple of times that I stood still and spoke to myself in a soft voice, whispering,
"LadyLee, do you need to go get in a closet in the middle of the house?"
In the midst of all that, I watched the news. All the news, which hasn't been my habit as of late.
Alternate facts. That's a new phrase I learned this weekend. I am crunching a large data set at work right now. There are a couple of sketchy figures in there. I thought about going to my boss with these "alternate facts". I didn't want my boss to give me the MLK face in the above picture.
Luckily I reworked my data set and came up with actual facts. Because I am sure the alternate facts spin will not work for me. Nerp.
What a plethora of issues went on in the last 3 or 4 days. Large marches. Inaugaration.
And me, trying to take it all in.
Much of it I just don't understand.
If the last 4 days are a snapshot of what is going down for the next 4-8 years, then we are in for one helluva ride.
Man listen... ya'll better run out and marry your partners, get you contraceptives, get your health care, get your abortions, and anything else you can think of because it is ALL about to be outlawed.
I guess this is what they call "Make America Great Again."
Nothing wrong with that.
I just think I need to be a white straight male over 50 to understand it all. That's the problem. .
Because Birthdays - It's my birthday. I had a whole post written. Being all kinds of introspective. I decided to delete it. I'm not in the mood to be deep. It's my birthday.
