Update (trying to keep posts on here to positive shit For Now): someone found a homeless shelter in the Dallas area, run by decent humans, taking COVID seriously, who might be able to take me in starting tomorrow.

Homeless shelters are normally hideous places run by tired people who see you as subhuman: you call in, you get a polite greeting, then they realize you’re another fucking homeless person and they tell you stuff in this dismissive get-fucked way.

This one, lady at the desk immediately was like “we closed intake a half hour ago, but tomorrow call in after 10:30 AM and I’ll have answers on availability for you, here’s what you need, here’s the details on where you need to be and what you need to have. Here’s the answers to any questions you have. Please stay safe for tonight!”

I have such chaotic fucking luck, but if I can ride this upswing just right... I’ll be okay.

Still keeping to positive news till I’m actually confident about the future beyond two days.

Ever look at someone you thought was of good moral quality, hear them say a certain thing and realize they were following the rules because they were rules and could tell people what to do, and not because of the reason said rules exist?

Anyway, what is the male equivalent of Kai Winn or Dolores Umbridge?

Sounds like Patrick Bateman to be honest. What was it?

Ive had two days with the baby after a lot of drama with the mothers blood pressure where both her and the baby were readmitted (to breast feed), last two weeks have been really stressful, hated feeling powerless to do anything, and not being able to visit for close to two weeks nearly drove me off the deep end.
Sleeping in four hour shifts and swapping with herself so she gets a good night sleep.
Feeding, changing, isn't bad, winding isnt easy, but I'm finding taking care of part ok, now that I finally can.

Immigration stuff a while back. I thought about how he was a good kid when I went to school with him. The way he described asylum seekers -specifically- just made me question his behavior. It was a meme about if you wanted refugees to come in you might as well take your door off or something like that and him commenting about laws and junk. Nothing about people as people. I had forgotten that bit until he posted about Cardinal Burke wanting to get everyone back in church and he was all for that. Rules say you have to see a priest.



The first few weeks with a baby are rough, extra tough with a hospital stay.  Sleep is the best thing ever. Hang in there.

From the other end of my social distance stick
Typographically tired of this shit

I dunno who needs to hear this, but wouldn't the old 3-2-1 Contact opening theme make a great theme song for Antifa?

Nobody's using it for anything now. Just fucking take it.

So I got an email on Tuesday after lunch from a principal, telling me he was doing interviews starting Wednesday and asking if I was interested. I replied late in the evening that I was but requested Thursday/Friday and haven't heard from him since. It's not really a school I actively want to work at but rn it's very "beggars can't be choosers" and the staff is apparently great, according to an acquaintance who works there. I'm debating the merits of a follow up email in case it got lost in his inbox.
