Breaking Through

Look at this video. LOOK AT IT. How is this the same person whose teeth I knocked out when she was five?

And now that I have your attention:

Texans, today is the last day to register to vote in the March 6th primary. In November it's going to be "red versus blue" pretty much straight down the line, just like it always is. And if you are tired of that shit, then this is your golden chance to decide who takes up those colors... because those crooked old parties are going to be forced to throw their money behind whichever candidates YOU choose. You will never, ever have as much game-changing political power as you do in the next 31 days. Don't waste it. Register here.

Personally? I'm making it my mission not to vote for any candidate with a clean car. These cinder-blocks are made for smashing, y'all.

If you need to hear something kind today...

This is *not* what I should be doing right now, but I had the most fantastic conversation with Aaron Glover yesterday, and this is what's coming out of it. If you're desperately out of warranty and struggling to make it, huddle up with me for a sec.

So guys. You know that stuff you have to do, before you can be a functional human? The pills you have to take - the monumental mission it is just to get up and dressed, let alone take a shower - the effort you make on the daily to pour your pain and sadness into a professional person-shape and gingerly slosh your way out the front door? 

Thank you so much for doing that, y'all. I have no concept of how hard that is, or what it costs you. But on behalf of all of us who only get to see you at your painstaking best - thank you so much for making the effort to stay here in the world with us. We may never really 'get it', but we are SO much the better for your presence. And if you need to hear that more personally, hit this post and we will make it so. Because big-kid pants do not put themselves on, and you deserve to hear that yours look good today!
