I'm home with my boo and I'm taking a Twitter break. I'll be back in a few weeks. I need some space from the rage and grief I plunge into on here every day. Also, as much as I love using this as "Alice's Anxiety Corner," there are 40k of you now and that doesn't really work.

0% here for dudes telling me to buck up and lead them to revolution. I am allowed to mourn. Do I mourn forever? No, that is a wasted life. But I need longer than 12 hours to recover from this blow and I am allowed that time.

Hey friends, I need some good book recommendations. Something engrossing and preferably written by a woman.

- Gone Girl
- Ancillary Justice
- The Fifth Season
- old school Anne Rice
- mysteries, southern gothic, something that keeps me glued to the page Doesn't have to be a series. Standalone is fine. But it needs to grab me and hold me. I need an escape.

If you've called and campaigned but still need something to do with all that rage, comb through the mentions of well-known women and report/block the trash Start with WoC and white trans women, they get the worst of it

skipping most of the marvel movies then going straight to Infinity War thoughts on Infinity War:
- I enjoyed it even though I was missing a lot of context
- I want to go back and watch the movies I missed
- they threw every hero they had into this thing and it still failed the Bechdel Test

Looking for respite this weekend? I recommend GRAND DESIGNS, the show where white people go bankrupt trying to build the same house. And the host hates all of them

ok I tuned in for Kavanaugh and dude's a mess

glued to his notes, stumbling over his words, angry

you'd think he'd be better in a court setting separating myself from all the reasons I don't want him confirmed, I'm not convinced he has the professional chops to be a supreme court justice

dude's delivery is amateur

I 100% support anyone watching Dr Ford's testimony. I am just saying, as someone who has been losing sleep due to high stress, you don't have to. That's all. I want to watch it but I know it's better for me physically/mentally/emotionally if I do not.

Hey, it's me. Someone with a smidge of authority who has an inkling of what you're going through.

You don't have to watch Ford's testimony. You don't have to read it. You don't have to know about it at all.

It's your day and they don't get to take another from you. It's not your job to listen to her. It's not your responsibility as a woman or as an assault survivor.

The only people who have to listen to her are already in that room.
