Who has two thumbs and is going to be in a two hour meeting with the VP and department Directors and just started getting the trails and hallucinations that mean an incoming migraine.

[mood |3972 days]

I haven't been much on updating lately.

My brain chemistry has been, quite frankly, a fucking shitshow. Pretty much all I have in me is to bully myself out of bed in the morning, bully myself to leave the house for work, and then bully myself to go to bed at the end of the day.

So you know, see you on the other side. When it comes.

resources for Canadians [Jan. 31st, 2017|05:32 pm]

[mood |baby steps]

I have now heard about three separate petitions asking Trudeau to rescind or revise the Safe Third Country Agreement. (The Canadian refugee process requires refugees to apply at the country they land in first, if it's listed in the act. The USA is one of those countries.)

On the Parliament petitions site, here.

One is sponsored by the Broadbent Institute here.

And one sponsored by No One Is Illegal here.

I sent an email to Trudeau and cc'd my MP asking them to repeal or revise the act and offer haven to stranded people being denied entry to the US. Somebody mentioned including the Minister of Immigration in that email chain, I didn't do that but maybe I'll send him a separate email when I get home from work tonight. (He might be sympathetic, since he is 1) Muslim 2) a former refugee and 3) born in one of the countries on the ban list. So he probably is banned from entering the US right now himself.) I've heard that calling is better than email, so if I can gather together the spoons at some point this week I'll do that too.

I also went through the list of companies at grabyourwallet.org and notified the ones that I have accounts with that I won't be buying anything from them until they stop doing business with the Trump family.

If I come across anything else I'll post it here. Feel free to add to the list, and share it around.

Being back at the old job means I spend about twice as long on the bus. So I've already finished four books in the first month.

Welcome to the LJ refugees who have recently stumbled over to Dreamwidth. If I haven't friended you t/here yet, give me a prod and I'll fix that.

I'm really looking forward to seeing DW becoming more active. It's kinda clunky, but seems to be run by nice people.

And to the new people who have just friended me from outta (as far as I can tell) nowhere, hi! Welcome! I promise I'm not very interesting!

a whiskey called 'Writer's Tears'


D brought this home earlier this week. He thought it was hilarious.

(OK, I think it's hilarious too.)

Most of my posts recently have been about the reading and writing thing, because quite frankly I don’t have much else going on. No money means no travel, and I've been feeling really exhausted by adult life lately so I haven't really been doing much else either.

I decided to take a break from the big book project for a while – I have to do some research to fill in some of the holes, so in the meantime I’ll work on some other ideas I have. Weekly beer-and-laptops sessions to resume shortly.

I have one more week at the temp role before I go back to the salt mines. Everybody has been lovely about telling me they wish I were staying. Even the department Director came by and told me that she tried to get me made permanent but she couldn’t get the extra budget approved. That does a lot for my confidence, I gotta tell you. I stepped away from old job because I was feeling like I was in a rut I couldn't get out of, and this makes me a lot less worried about going back and falling into the same old pit of despair.

The boys are going to a party tonight and I’ve decided I’m going to stay home and be introverted and enjoy having the house to myself. (That doesn't happen much any more.) Maybe I could do a little bit of writing. Maybe shed a tear or two.
