I woke up and kept getting sick (that's how I politely say 'vomit' so as to not gross out the healthies) and then I started poking the shmot and then I stopped getting sick (again, read: emesis), and I can't believe people are in f*cking prison for this
People are in prison.
Like, process that.
Process that prison exists.
And then process that prison exists, and that we put people in it for things like selling a dime bag to a grandma on chemo to help pay off their student debt.

That is a thing in the world in which we all live.
And THEN they get paid PENNIES PER HOUR for their forced labor in a workforce disproportionately comprised of Black folx & NBPOC, disabled folx, poor folx, Queer/Trans folx, and people who live at the intersections of multiple marginalizations
#EndPrisonSlavery #PrisonStrike2018
AND THEN we take away their voting rights for FOREVER because why not ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ we took away all the other rights too so anything goes at this point I guess!!!!!!1!
AND THEN people have the audacity to be like "America! Home of the free!!" with a totally straight face sdhjdjskfnxjfsk that's the society we live in. We live here. It's real life. It's bananas fucked up. And everyone knows about it & just does NOTHING. This society BLOWS MY MIND
Okay good night
It is ASININE how reasonable these demands are. I don't even know if it's correct to call them demands?? It's just what should be happening. Like u shouldn't have to demand things like,, "not slavery". That should be a given. That should just be expected.…

Trying not to cry in the car right now because everywhere we've tried to go for dinner, and we're on like eighth place, can't accommodate my wheelchair. So everyone's grumpy and hungry and been driving around for an hour and a half because of this. 🙃
The last hostess gave me a whole ten minute explanation about why none of the wheelchair accessible sections can seat five people. Like for fuck's sake I just needed a yes or no not a diatribe about why I'm inconvenient
This doesn't feel good.

this is the movie I've been complaining about for a while.
It's rly not revolutionary to depict Nazis in a light that shows that ~we're all human~
Especially not right now when the press is doing a fine job already of providing us with human profiles on alt reich proud boys and whatnot.

When I thought I was done with school I donated all of my school supplies to these Guatemalan babychildren who live in a garbage dump by creating lean-to's from found things, most of whom are being raised by single young moms who never got a chance for formal education themselves
It's called Safe Passage/Camino Seguro, it's a pretty great organization and I know lots of folks who've worked with them over the years. The founder unfortunately died in a car accident when she was still just in her thirties, while in Gautemala doing the work.
Anyways now I don't have any fucking sticky notes

Okay I have another wildly offensive & ignorant thing that that old racist lady said to me the other night (that I had to double check to make sure it was as ridiculous as I thought it was).
So this 81-yr-old is talking to me about all of her health problems. A lot of people do, bc my health problems are often visible which many take as an invitation to share (which I usually love, bc it's rly hard to find fellow sicks offline!). So I didn't rly think anything of it.
And she's telling me, you know, all the injuries & diseases she's accumulated over 81 years of life. Which is a lot. Bc she's an octogenarian. She's had like a dozen surgeries, but, again, .... eighty-one years old.
And she's *totally* mobile. She has no mobility aids whatsoever.

I'm sorry my twitter has devolved from occasionally informative political commentary into sharing details no one asked for about my extremely irrelevant personal life, but YAAALLLLLL
So I'm in Oregon for my cousin's wedding; never met the bride before because he met her out here not long ago.
& tonight after the rehearsal dinner, (which it turns out is just a dinner; we rehearsed absolutely nothing. but okay, society, good job at names) we went out to a bar.

So I'm traveling to the other side of the country in like uh 3 hours

I'm going to Oregon for a few days with my family because my cousin is getting married. I am extremely dreading the plane ride for some reason (usually don't mind air travel) but weddings are fun so that's cool
It will be both the second time in my life and the second time this summer that I am going to the west coast. last time was for a wedding too.
Everyone keeps getting married
