This was the first tweet i saw on my timeline, about parents stuck behind the lines, wondering, waiting, and hoping that their child is one of the ones who is ok:
As i was driving home from the pulltab booth job tonight, i heard part of an earlier news conference which gave updates on the number of magazines found in the church (15, of 30 rounds each), on MPR/NPR.
I don’t watch late night infomercials, so when I heard this on the TV in the next room I thought that SNL was running again on a Sunday. Nope. This is a thing that exists in this world. And apparently I’m late to finding this.
Today I got a letter from Ameren, our electric company, saying they would be in the neighborhood in the next few weeks trimming trees which are near power lines.

I was just driving home, and heard our new AG Sessions talk about “Why this immigration change is necessary” in the eyes of the drumpf administration.
Crowley will serve as senior director of strategic communications for the National Security Council. *screampukesforever*
We know he’s racist, but fun fact: he is also ableistic. Because of course he is!
As a bit of background, I was a poll worker yesterday. Specifically, I was an Assistant Inspector for my assigned precinct. This was something that happened yesterday that (while it didn’t necessarily piss me off) it bothered me. Politics-wise, I hold to two rules:
Gulp. Just look at how ridiculous this thing looks. It’s a giant black sea slug known as a sea hare and it’s freaking monstrous. You don’t really hold it in your hand as much as the sea hare, which can grow up to over 3 feet long and weigh over 30 pounds, just swallows your entire arm. Brave Wilderness found the black…
