Grrr, the storm has not started yet, even though it's super dark outside. It's still hot, though thankfully not as hot as it has been

I've heard. Wasn't it predicted to be like 115F on the coast? Even with building for air flow and A/C, that's too hot. Like, Italians take into account heat and I've been in Rome when it's above 110F and it's still miserable.

Hey y'all, just got back from Montana.  The landshark menace has been beaten back for another year.

Now, I need to get a brain tickle and stay inside for 2 weeks.

Some dipshit just rolled up in the glass door of the dojo. About my height and fairly built, upright posture. Wore a skully cap and long sleeve light jacket on a fine August night, gloves. Had himself a striker baton in his hand. I was sitting on the couch tucked up to the left of the door in the front room. A buddy of mine I had invited by was sitting more in sight from the door tucked up to the right.

Dude quickly realized my friend was sitting there as he played a video game and looked up. Motherfucker bolted. He was unmasked and clearly not expecting to see anyone. He was clearly dressed and prepped for a little game of smash and grab. Whoever he was he was fast enough to be gone by the time we got up and out the door, quiet enough that I caught no footfalls.

Despite seeing that some of the lights were on and looking like a pro or at least fairly smart amateur he expected nobody to be in or he would not have stepped up. I sold my car today. It has sat out front announcing my presence every night for weeks lights on or off. I'm certain this guy had a plan and was specifically targeting the dojo. The first time my car was gone from its usual place seems like a bit too strong of a coincidence. We made him, but only my friend got a clear look at his face. I don't think he was even aware of me as I remained still. My plan if he swung was to spread a blanket to hand on the couch to cover the glass as I was barefooted. The rest is whatever.

I have no reason to believe he will be back soon, but I suspect he might try a do over at some point if he spots all the lights out when my car never comes back. Some of the weapons and equipment are quite valuable on the right market.

I may just arrange a surprise for him if he does. I don't need much light. Gonna have an interesting conversation with the sensei come tomorrow.

Apparently there’s a wave of people seeking out trans women to brutalize them in public.

No one is doing anything to help them. Cops walking past laughing. And the trans community, largely extremely left wing, is saying “arm up and play like you’re in a warzone”.

So, since I’m in Chicago, and it’s bad here and the weapon laws are insanely punitive, I just am not going to go outside anymore for any reason ever.

To be clear, I’ve only been going out for food and necessities, and only during the day. But now I don’t feel like even that’s a good idea and I feel like my best bet is to not go anywhere at all.

Times get bad and the opportunists are out in force. Sounds like the brown shirts have just learned to be metastic self directed cells instead of an organized formal heirarchy. God fucking damn it. Stay safe as well as you can altered.

So, I am being stalked by Ron Paul Weed XXX dude.

On the even creepier side, he now lives about 45 minutes away.

On the less creepy side, he's not actually scary and I don't care.

Just give him the gas face if you see him in real life, he'll spontaneously launch his intestines out through his toenails.
