Yesterday, I filled out the official payment info for the new Volonte story and so I decided to go ahead and actually read the story they bought.
I hadn’t read it since I turned it into them on Tuesday night. And I wrote it while up to my eyeballs in Helen’s sudden death (if a woman of 101 years old can have a “sudden” death), as well as all the stuff involved with the premiere of the staged reading of Tell My Bones.
So I re-read the story yesterday (titled “Code”) and it was one of those feelings: Wow, who wrote this? I don’t remember writing this!
Of course, I do remember writing it, but it felt like the story had come from some other psychic realm, because I’d had so much on my mind while trying to write it.
But it’s just continued proof that there is an open channel to creativity, even when other really important things are pressing in on you from all sides.
Okay, so. No — I haven’t found it in me to clean out the flower boxes yet, but I will have to do it today, since a lot of snow is expected tomorrow. I need to get everything cleaned up and put back into the barn.
(Remember what the barn looked like in the summer??)
It doesn’t look like this right now!!
And the street down there by the barn is really torn up now, with lots of construction equipment — earth-movers, etc. — blocking everything. Kevin’s vintage 1965 VW camper-van is still in my barn. There’s no easy way to get it out of there now. But, luckily, he also has a car so he doesn’t actually need to get at it.
Basin Street is really just a mess of construction. And at night it’s really eerie looking because they just leave all the construction equipment out there in the dark, and those earth-movers are huge.
All righty. I want to thank all of you who responded quickly to my call-to-arms and watched the staged reading of my play on YouTube yesterday because it finally went over the 1000-viewers mark!! Yay!! Thank you!!! I really appreciate it.
Loyal readers of this lofty blog no doubt recall that I periodically do battle with my dependency on steroids to combat my allergies. And I am just really, really tired of it. So two days ago, I once again began the “withdrawal,” which is not an actual withdrawal, but it involves about 60 hours of not being able to breathe through my nose and resisting the easy fix of a single spray of fluticasone propionate up into my sinuses.
But I am now officially past that 60 hour-mark and breathing again!! Yay. And yesterday at the health food store, I bought an herbal supplement that I hope will help with the allergies from now on so that I can stop putting so much garbage up my nose. (It has a full-money-back guarantee if I am not completely satisfied!!)
And I also bought those ear candles for the first time. Have you ever used those?? It seemed like, with the steroids messing with my sinuses, my ears were also starting to bother me the last few weeks. So I thought, why not just clean out the whole thing?
I’m not 100% sure what the candles really do (besides accidentally set things on fire if you’re trying to watch reruns of The Monkees and fooling with your iPhone down there on the floor while you have a lit candle in your ear), but I do know that my ears feel amazingly clear now. They honestly do. (I have not reached for a Q-tip in 17 hours!!!) (Yes, I time everything!!) So — yay!! I hope I’m on my way to getting rid of the fucking steroids!!
And, of course, while in the health food store, no less than 9 customers in a row said something to me about being fed up with wearing the stupid m* sks, and that the m* sks don’t seem to do anything, and that if the virus really were so deadly we’d all be dead in the streets by now, and everyone now thinks they are being lied to…
I’m not making this up, gang. Total strangers were talking to me about it, as if I were wearing some sort of sign on my shirt that said: Ask me about Operation C* VID Panic.
And, no, I did not launch into all the many political things I bombard you with here on the blog. I simply said, “I know, I agree,” and then bit my tongue regarding all the rest of it. But I only bring this up because so many people are questioning it now — all races, creeds, wage-brackets, and genders.
So it appears the Socialists are losing the narrative on Operation C* VID Panic now, too.
They lost the narrative on it having been “an entirely fraud-free el*cti*n” (because of course what they meant to say was that it had been an entirely fraud-filled el*cti*n…) so they had to move swiftly on to Operation C* VID Panic, in order to keep the masses mesmerized. So now what? The masses are no longer quite so mesmerized.
I’m guessing the riots are next. And I don’t think that’s going to be amusing at all, gang.
And on that topic… Since it’s Sunday, there is not much news yet. However, I draw your attention to two really interesting things.
First, the way in which Y* h** news sends out a misleading headline, unasked for, right into your inbox. It reads:
In Another Legal Blow To Trump, Pa. Supreme Court Tosses Suit Challenging Mail-In Ballots: Pennsylvania’s highest court dismissed a lawsuit filed by Rep. Mike Kelly and other Republicans who questioned the legitimacy of mail-in ballots cast in the state.
Second, the way an actual news site relays the very same news:
Pennsylvania Supreme Court Overturns Block on Certification Results: The Pennsylvania Supreme Court on Saturday overturned a lower court’s order blocking election officials from certifying the results of the 2020 election. The court also dismissed the case with prejudice. [my emphasis]
[…] The state Supreme Court said on Saturday that the petitioners waited until days before the county of boards of election were required to certify the election results, which could “result in the disenfranchisement of millions of Pennsylvania voters” who voted by mail.
[…] However, Justice Saylor said he believes the Republican petitioners should still be able to argue their case about the constitutional validity of Act 77.
“I find that the relevant substantive challenge raised by Appellees presents troublesome questions about the constitutional validity of the new mail-in voting scheme,” Saylor wrote.
Justice Sallie Mundy joined in that opinion.
It’s so weird, isn’t it? How the actual news gives an entirely different story?
Also, I have officially deleted my F B account, as I said I would do as soon as the premier of Tell My Bones took place, so as not to disrupt all the PR involved with that.
And this morning, I saw this article, which is just the icing on the cake.
A group that received hundreds of millions of dollars from F*ce b** k CEO M*rk Z*ck *er b* rg is accused in post-election lawsuits of contributing to constitutional violations in key battleground states.
[…] The money was sent through agreements that had municipalities run elections in contravention to state law, according to the lawsuits, which were filed by the Th* m*s M*re Foundation’s Am* st* d Project. Accepting funding from a private group like the center is barred by state and federal law, the lawsuits allege.
“There is nothing in Wisconsin state law that allows cities and counties to take in millions of dollars sourced to an incredibly wealthy, interested, and partisan actor (i.e., Z*ck * r b* rg) in order to ‘assist’ those cities and counties in administering the vote,” the Wisconsin court filing states. Wisconsin election officials said on Friday that filing was full of “meritless legal arguments.”
[…] Z*ck * r b* rg and his wife, Pr** c*ll* C**n, committed $400 million to the Center for Tech and Civic Life for the nonprofit to assist jurisdictions in running elections.
And also, re: F B, C*nd* ce Ow* ns recently began a legal action against F B fact-checkers who censored her post, claiming that her post stating that Jo* B* den is not the pr*s*d*nt*al el*ect was false. Facing legal action, they have now retracted that:
“Weeks ago, @ F* c* b** k censored a post of mine [C*nd* ce Ow* ns] which truthfully stated that @ Jo* B* den is NOT the President-elect. So I got lawyers involved. Conclusion? @ Polit* F*ct uncensored the post & admitted that they LIED by rating my post false. The fact-checkers are lying for Democrats,” Ow*ns wrote on Nov. 28, after the correction was issued.
The correction was not added to Pol*ti F*ct’s website.
And just for fun, you can read this: 2020 Election One of the Most Lawless in US History
On that note — last evening’s videos and podcasts dealt with the amount of corruption that has plagued the US Census throughout the last 200 years and how the census relates to politics. And also the corruption of the Rutherford B. Hayes election in the 1800s and its parallels to the current election.
Click this link and scroll down for last night’s podcast. (Rutherford B. Hayes and other related information.)
And then this on how the illusion to control the world (census) is now being destroyed:
Okay, that’s it for today, gang! Enjoy your Sunday, wherever you are in the world!! Thanks for visiting!! I leave you with my breakfast-listening music from this morning! I love you guys. See ya.
