The Unthinkable Has Happened

No, not Christina unfollowing Britney on Instagram. But this shit:

my blue bird acct

Yep, I gone and done it. Yours Truly, who once thought she wouldn’t succumb to the monster blue bird, got herself a Twitter account over the weekend. And tweeted something that no one saw, of course. (And if you really think I’m Bai Ling this whole time, well, yeah I am. After ten beers.) I’ve been using this blog, which was originally supposed to promote my works, as a dumping ground lately for all of my malarkey that I kind of don’t want associated with my author profile. I might as well take it there and stalk follow some of my faves as well. Oh, and Like some interesting shit like this:

Paris remains racist, Trump-supporting trash, but at least she had good taste in music.

Liking and tweeting won’t even be a part-time thing, of course. I’ve gotten busier with my day job as of late, and I still have another book to write. So while updates here and on my blue bird account will be sparse, at least you’ll get to see what I’m liking at the moment. And I make no apologies for what I like!

Off To Protest

Thirty years ago, I worried over getting head lice and missing the latest episode of Clarissa Explains It All.

Twenty years ago, I worried over Finals, which college to go to, and missing the latest episode of Buffy.

Ten years ago, I worried over doing well at my first massage job (that I would eventually quit) and missing the latest episode of Drag Race (dat season 4 brought the drama).

Never during these times did I worry over my reproductive rights being threatened to where a rotted corpse gets better government treatment than I do.

You think that in the year 2022, I should be worrying about flying cars being safe to use and which chrome-plated dress I should wear to the club where I’d get to dance with robots. Instead, I’m worrying over losing my right to an abortion if I needed one because some ass-backwards, out-of-touch, Bible-thumping cuntbeasts in the Supreme Court want to take us back to 1822. Since wishes don’t really come true (including mines of, among my many other wishes, getting rid of all the conservative scabs some people call justices), I’ll be doing the next best thing later today: attending my local Women’s March to support the fight in keeping Roe v. Wade the law of the land!

Why didn’t I think of that for my protest sign?!

Keep California Sane*

Four days left till the recall election (that should’ve never happened) and the message remains the same…

If you’re a CA registered voter but haven’t received your ballot, put an awful hex on Louis deJoy and head out to your nearest polling place, which will be open tomorrow through election day. 

*I’m very aware that this state has our share of crazies. *side-eyes Central Valley and northeast CA*

 

 

A Golden Milestone!

It took a little over two years since the start of this blog, and I’m sure some basics on social media have amassed more followers in far less time, but hey! And I didn’t have to buy my followers either! Given some of the shit I’ve ranted about in the past, I’m kind of surprised I got 50 followers.

Time for a happy twerk!

I’m currently watching classic Beavis & Butthead, by the way, which influenced my choice in GIF.

And One Really Important Thing

There are three weeks left till the GQP-backed nuisance that is the California governor recall happens. Why are us Californians dealing with another anxiety-inducing election, and in less than a year. *smdh*  Californians, if you don’t want Florida west to become a reality, fill out your ballot and…

And mail it back or drop it off at your nearest voting box, of course.

While I have a soft spot for delicate roses of the 80s like Angelyne, I’d rather spare her the trouble that is politics in general. Her regular job that is living the good pink life in LA is a lot more stress-free. 

And On Tuesday I Say…

…as of 2:15PM my time, I’M FULLY VACCINATED!!

Those two weeks of waiting for the Covid vaccine to fully kick in got me kind of anxious, though. Like, worrying if the wind would blow a new strain of The Rona onto me on the off-chance I had my mask off while taking a walk outside, thus ruining me and the vaccine’s efficiency. (For the record, I take the mask off when there’s no one nearby.) But now that I’m fully protected (or so the CDC says), I am so gonna live it up like a validation-starved influencer and get my free donut at Krispy Kreme! (What, did you expect me to go party in crowds again?) Fuck yeah, living! 

The Message!

great sign

As an Asian-American, I’m proud to see my fellow Asian-Americans (and other nationalities) stand up to the ongoing racism and brutality against Asian communities in the Bay Area and beyond! (I wasn’t able to be at those protests, however, since I work weekends, but I was there in spirit.)

This site also provides many ways on how to help Asian-American communities. I also must share this feel-good story on how a multiracial activist group is helping out the Bay Area Asian community. (And if you wanna get around that damn “disable your ad-blocker” message from that site, Archive.Fo is your friend.)

And It’s Finally Complete

Guess who finally finished editing her first novel?

Since I’m fussy like dat, I do need to reread the whole thing for the umpteenth time to make sure it all looks good. But the editing part is done. Months and months of editing and I’m finally finished and I can now work on getting it formatted into an eBook (I plan on self-publishing this) and also start working on my next story. Yaasss. 

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And it is official.

The news dropped right when I had to go to work so I know I’m the very last person on earth to celebrate this. Right now, all the congrats to Biden, to Harris, their families and friends, and to all who campaigned and voted for them. And special thanks to those who volunteered to work during this election (even the ones taking a little while counting the ballots).

PARTY!!
