My proudest moment as an activist was at the People's Climate March. My son, who was 7 at the time stood up with a chant sheet and got the ENTIRE crowd to follow his lead in the chants. I have never been more inspired as a parent as I was to hear my baby yelling. BOMB TRAINS?!?! and a hundred people responding to him. INSANE!!!!
Why Do I Do What I Do?
As an activist, i get that question... A LOT! Over time my answer has gotten shorter and simpler... but no less true. I fight for my planet at the risk of my life and freedom because someone has to. Nothing changes if no one stands up for Mother Earth. We may be different colors, we may have different spiritual paths and lifestyles... but one thing we ALL need to remember is that we are ALL HUMAN BEINGS and without Mother Earth... we do not exist.

It realllly sucks when you're bored enough to download Pokemon Go (just to make the neighborhood emo whackjobs who love this game cry as i steal all the Pokemon) and the service on your cellphone goes out... Dunno why... dunno when it'll be back... but it sucks.
Well... that was crazy.....

mood: positively content with life!!!
listening to: the air conditioner grumbling
Life is slowly going back to normal... sort of. I'm not constantly tired anymore... (Yay!!) I'm getting big as a house but that's to be expected... I'm pregnant for fuck's sake.... still.. I feel pretty self conscious about it regardless of why. Overall though... I'm a happy camper...
I WANT OUT!!!!

It never seems to rain... it always seems to pour in this apartment complex. Yesterday... the cops had to bring in a K9 unit to catch a jackass who helped a girl beat up her mom.. and today... a lady having chest pains hit the building next door... It's FRUSTRATING to have to constantly deal with other people's shit. I'm pregnant for crap's sake... I don't need this stress. Thank the gods.. everyone in the car is mostly ok... and the building is structurally sound... but for the love of fluffy muffins.. I'm sick of the constant chaos. If it's not the adults fighting or having medical issues... it's the damned kids being bullies... My son knows how to deal with bullies... so they don't bother him anymore... but fuck... Should he really have to constantly defend the younger kids from the bigger ones?? He already popped Cyrus the Virus in the mouth for messing with a younger kid... I just want a nice quiet peaceful place to live..... *sigh*
UPDATE: I'm Ok now....

After doing a little research on snails... I've discovered that they are, in fact, relatively LOW MAINTENANCE!!! The most work involved is setting up the snail's habitat... which really seems like fun to me. The only drawback I've found so far is that a snails average lifespan in a terrarium.. is fifteen to twenty years... with SOME living as long as 25. Anthony has been telling me everything about raising snails that he learned in science class (Thanks, Mr Foley...) and I'm fairly confident in his ability to keep these little critters alive. (Snail adoptions in 3rd Grade Science. It's great!! )
I must be insane....

My son brought home a permission slip yesterday... I thought it sounded like a great idea.... so i signed it. What in NINE PINK FUZZY HELLS WAS I THINKING... Our family consists of... two cats, two (small, thankfully) dogs... three humanoids (with a fourth on the way) and now... two SNAILS.... yes... i said two freaking snails.... I'm not terribly upset by snails... but do we REALLY need more household members??
A Profound Week Of Revelations And Revolution
Thursday. 5.19.16 9:42 am
mood: strange.... i feel... strange
This last week has been truly amazing for its overwhelmingness.. Last Thursday... I found out that I am indeed pregnant. I find out my due date this afternoon... It's quite a surprise to be having a baby at 41 but it's not unwelcome at all. My son is rather excited about being a big brother. He really wants this to be a boy... but he said he would be happy with a little sister to protect too...
Then... last weekend was #breakfree. We pretty much took over Anacortes and it was GREAT!! Environmental activism at its finest!! It was awesome because not only did we make our statement to the world.... but I got to see people I hadn't seen since sHell No in Seattle last year. The highlights of my weekend were offfering support to the blockaders on the tracks on the first day and facing down the SWAT goon squads on the third. (SWAT cops are apparently scared of pregnant women with cameras...lol.... who knew!?!) I have pictures up in my gallery in the #BreakFreePNW album.
All told.. there were 52 arrests at the track blockade on Sunday morning and as of Sunday night... all were out of jail!! I consider this a victory for Planet Earth!
How To Fix The Government AND Get Rich
Monday. 4.25.16 1:01 pm
DISCLAIMER: THIS IS JUST A JOKE. i'M NOT SERIOUS ABOUT THIS AT ALL. IF YOU ACTUALLY WANT TO TRY IT... DON'T TELL THEM IT WAS MY IDEA!!!!
In a world of get rich quick schemes and lawsuit happy people... this might actually work. First off... we take a life insurance policy out on Donald Trump. Lots and Lots of money... (Do your research folks... some insurance companies don't pay out if it's murder or suicide) Then... we get the prick elected to office... and don't worry... phase 3 of this plan will come along soon enough!! We wait... ( all of 30 seconds, probably) till either Al Qaeda or the Mexican drug cartels assassinate his stupid ass. Then we collect said life insurance money... move to... somewhere else... and live peacefully for the rest of our natural lives!!! Hence... we rid the world of Donald Chump... we get rich ourselves... and we can live in a tiny village somewhere doing feelgood stuff to help the villagers with our ridiculous amounts of money.
