BadCripple Makes Policy Changes

As I began writing again, Gentle Reader, I realized that I need to make some changes. So I thought that I would enumerate them to you.

Two doggos on a couch.

  • I read a lot, and then I have opinions on that reading. Or I have experiences and opinions about those experiences.  I now realize that a big hang up for me was making sure that I sourced the fuck out of my writing in order to justify those writings about those opinions. I will still source, but this is a blog and if I need to be more casual about LMGtfY to get myself in front of the blank page, then so be it.
  • I am taking more pictures and actually pursing photography in a slightly more than casual way. And you lot like pictures. So I will keep posting pics with articles as a way of pursing that interest and giving you something besides awfulness with the things I am thinking about at that moment.
  • Pass it along: I had a huge list of places I was posting my new links to and that got intimidating and otherwise bothersome. So now I will post to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Pintrest. So if you dig it, share it. This is an not a money making effort.
  • I am still the tyrant of this little space, in as much as Blogger, Google, and Alphabet allow. I endeavor to be a gracious hostess, but do not fuck around.

Well, hello there, stranger! Here we are again, me thinking I may be able to hold a thought long enough to write about it and you here to read it. Heavens help you.

Adorable black "pit bull" gazes longingly over a cushion over the back of a couch.

This election cycle I signed up to help local Democrats, and they seemed to be okay with my position of being a liberal that settles for Democrats, especially in Indiana. 

I saw Janelle Monae's Dirty Computer and it was amazing.

While many things have changed, many have not. 

I had spinal shots again, they do not last as long as we hoped. But they do help, so we will keep at it as long as that is true. I still do my PT exercises when my SI joint dysfunction acts up and that still works, but again, not as well as it used to work.

The Minions flew the coup but the Menfolk remain.  I have some things to get off my copious chest there.

I am learning to draw! For real! I can put marks on paper that resemble objects to other folks. 

My Nissi is big and healthy and willful. I am so happy with her and so proud of her. Look forward to lots of photos!

I have a computer to get used to, so many mistakes will be made. We can hit those things as they arise.

The current PotUS is the worst in my meager lifetime. There is much to say there.

I have found a lot of shortcuts to share that make it easier to live this life. I will share those: from talking about disability to friends and family to nail polish tricks.

I have some older post drafts that are, unfortunately, still relevant.

No promises, but I intend to be back for good. Now I will get to writing and hopefully produce something I can share with you on the regular.

Little chi-wow-wow mix starts to wake up in his round leopard print bed.

One of the dogs broke my face today. Not the big one, but the little one right above this paragraph. Some one was at the door so I leaned forward to get up off the couch just as he was launching himself from the end it and we collided in a manner most unpleasant. I grabbed my chin and put it back before I finished realizing that he may have actually dislocated my jaw. While there is swelling, I can talk and eat. Casual contact with healthcare providers advised that I take analgesics, ice and rest. I am doing just that, but if it is still swollen or the pain has not subsidized I will bug my doc about it tomorrow.

So start watching this space again, Dear Reader.  I am going to start writing for me but sharing it with you - which will be quite different than before where I was trying to write for you without knowing who you might be or what you might think. 

At least you  know you will see sex talk and cute dog pictures!
