    The thing that finally made me throw up my hands about it was then they started making up bird facts in service to the narrative.

    “Oooh, if she doesn’t get back to her flock they will leave forever and she will never see her one true mate again and be alone for-ever!” Bullshit, that’s obviously an ordinary, completely non-migratory carrier pigeon, and even so-called “monogamous” birds have no trouble replacing a dead mate when breeding season rolls around.

    Don’t even start with that manufactured false-sense-of-urgency bullshit glued together with fake animal behavior facts, this is even worse than earlier when y’all were waving around a basket of Red Delicious apples and calling them Honeycrisps.

    It is 3:07 PM, and I am still trying to wake up enough to take my meds.

    Soon it will be too late for me to take my afternoon wake-up pills.

    Augh.

    In other news, I have gotten the official report back from the psychiatrist’s office: I have approximately one (1) autism.

    The other night, I had a dream involving interdimensional travel caused by tree sneezes.

    Also, apparently there are riots happening in the city where I live.

    The initial killing took place outside the Cup Foods where my sister walks to get last-minute groceries.

    I am not someone who gets out and talks to people much even when we aren’t under quarantine, so I have heard more about it from the internet than in person.

    What I know about the police force in Minneapolis:

    1) They’re mostly made up of people who live in small towns outside Minneapolis, because we can’t risk having City Folk police their own.

    2) They’re mostly white.

    3) They’re mostly assholes, especially if you’re not white. (My sister, who is white, but also a social worker who has had to advocate to cops for both black and white clients, has confirmed the difference, and that the safety of black clients will be at risk if cops get involved.)

    ... I don’t know what else to say. Fuck white supremacists, fuck the police, fuck white supremacists in the police.

    We’re probably putting Chauncey down tomorrow.

    I say “probably” because I’m still in the bargaining stage, but Mandi’s made the appointment with the home vet and they’ll be here tomorrow afternoon.

    I really don’t want to do this. He’s been in decline a long time and my bedclothes are in continuous circulation in the laundry because he’s incontinent, but I don’t think he wants to die and this feels like a betrayal.

    I’m on the bed with him now. I’ve gotten laundry done specially today so he can sleep under the covers with me tonight like he likes to.

    I don’t like this.

    He’s gone. The home vet was very nice. He stayed in my lap for the whole procedure.

    I was pretty much useless for the rest of the day, and now I can’t sleep.

    It’s late and I’m tired, but I’m too bored to lay quietly with the lights off.

    A thing: I have always wanted kids. I’ve always hoped that someday, I’d get enough of my shit together that that didn’t look like basically the worst idea ever. That’s not looking real likely at the moment, though.

    In 2021, I turn 40.

    (I’ve taken to humming “Another One Bites the Dust” to myself every time my period starts.)

    In cat news, Polly’s recent insistence on occupying boobshelves as opposed to lap-thrones has earned her the new title of “catstache.”

    Today I went looking for Johnny Cash’s cover of Hurt, for reasons I can’t quite remember. Possibly because I felt like bawling my eyes out but couldn’t come up with a good enough excuse.

    Goddamn but that cover is amazing.

    Augh. I can’t find the button on the internet that makes the hurting go away.

    Gonna go skim fic recs again. I require a fresh infusion of longfic, stat.

    Parking a thought here pending possible future deployment:

    There is no moral imperative to be Right About Reality.

    I decided yesterday that I would clean up dog crap in the back yard. Today, I cleaned up dog crap in the back yard.

    I told myself before I started that completing the job would help alleviate the sense that I am worthless and a failure. However, I am done cleaning dog crap and I still feel like a worthless failure. Also, I am out of stuff to read again.

    How fix?

    Last night/this morning I dreamed I was walking around inspecting a horse show for non-standard arena measurements and a lammergyre griffin landed on my head and just chilled there for the rest of the tour.

    Right now I am worried and pissed off because Minneapolis just instated another curfew and all that means is the cops get to do anything they want to anyone they want after 10 PM, even more so than they did anyway.

    Fuck the cops. Fuck Trump.

    My sleeping brain has defeated both Ao3 and Rule 34 of the Internet.

    Ladies, gentlemen, & other, I now present to you the pairing generated by the REM-addled neural network that resides in my personal cranium:

    Cookie Monster/OMC.

    Which turns up 0 results in searches on Ao3 and Google.

    (This was not meant as either a challenge or a request, by the way. The dream was content enough for my entire lifespan, and would have been even if the OMC hadn’t been a self-insert. plz no more.)
