Sometimes Life Doesn't Even Wait Until You Get Out of Bed...



To start sucking.

A little after 5:00 this morning I woke up and when I went to get a up a shot of pain went through my head.  Turns out my arm was on my hair and the harder I tried to get up the harder I was pulling it.

As this was happening I tried to open my eyes but they'd been crusted shut from crying last night so for a few scary seconds this morning I was wildly disoriented, blind, and trapped by my own hair.

Went back to sleep and about an hour later was jolted awake when one of the cats knocked a metal cat bowl off the dresser and it hit the hardwood and rang out like a shot.

Got up and took something for my then throbbing head and went back to sleep...until about 45 minutes ago when I sat bolt upright when a Johnny Cash song at full volume assaulted by ears.

No offense to Johnny Cash fans.  Idk when my son decided to join your ranks and that is a wholly unacceptable way to finally greet the day.

Even with a splitting headache (coffee is helping) and much morning weirdness I feel better than I did last night.  I need to brew some tea so I can use the bags to hopefully bring some of this eye swelling down, not that looking like I am riddled with mumps isn't a wildly attractive look.

Late start, but it was a late night.  I'm going to finish my coffee, pour another cup, set my schedule for today in 20 minute increments, and plow ahead.

I hate days like that. I hope tonight and tomorrow are better for you. (We sleep with a box fan in every bedroom to try to minimize noise.) My motto is: If you love someone, let them sleep!!!

There’s no way to arrange my studio so that my bed isn’t on the wall adjacent to the neighbor’s bed.

New neighbor snores like a buzzsaw. And has a girlfriend who has some loud sex. Sort of humorous - she’s faking. Badly. Oh yes! Ooh yes! Uh huh. Yes.

They have also stolen the doorstops we use to prop open our locking doors to let delivery people in during the day. (Small building. few people - we have a system.)

I have to get out. It’s so cheap but I’m turning into the crazy lady who lived here for 15 years when I moved in and was forcibly evicted when her nephew ended up defaulting on his taxes and the building sold. She was nuts and yelled at the homeless folk who went through the trash. She also hosed our neighboring business people for smoking what she thought was pot under her window. And let stray cats in the building to feed them. 

Oh yes Buffy. My point. You have a lovely and clean home with critters and good company.

And you can kvetch at them for loud music. How does one complain at the neighbor snoring behind your head?

      I can’t see any posts about this - am I blind? Am I rehashing a days old discussion? 

      It’s been a long week and I haven’t been able to keep up. I’m busted after a massive day at work so I’m sitting down with a well deserved glass of wine. Forgive me if I’m days behind.



      Feel free to send more wine my way.

      I've seen an idea floating through the twittersphere and tabloids that alleges that 'Anna thinks Biden is behind all this', but I haven't seen any actual source for this rumour and it's just something people keep quoting without checking that it's real.  Does anyone know where this idea got started?  Is this some woacb nonsense?

      I'm most amused that you got @PennySycamore

      to use such strong sentiments. 🤣

      Not that I disagree.

      I agree. Surprised that Lucas isn't an elder yet, or at least a deacon.

      After listening to the podcast (which I believe is legit or else this Justin guy deserves an award) is that Josh really knows his way around a computer and has for a minute. 

      Justin sees Josh's passwords as reflecting comfort rather than being unintelligent. He compares it to forgetting to lock a car door because you feel safe where you are. He thinks Josh has been doing this for a long time. 

      That's scary to think about. 

      I really appreciate the podcast for highlighting the toxic structures of fundamentalist and conservative Christianity. These environments harbour all kinds of abuse and isms (sexism, racism, fatphobia, ableism, xenophobia etc). 


      What really stuck with me after listening to the 1st episode, was all that talk about "Satan attacking". Justin (and his wife) explained in great lengths the fundie-mindset that might have been prevalent in Josh, JB, and others in the church, when Josh was disciplined for his "porn-problem" (more likely the molestations). 

      Justin explains, that due to Josh being the golden child, and "reeking of destiny" (as he put it), this "Satan attack" will most likely have been viewed as some distinction or a "badge of honour". Meaning, that the attack (and the "serverity" of it) shows Josh being "chosen" for a "greater destiny", so Satan considers him 'important' enough to severely attack him (and thus God's plans with Josh). This will most likely have been also prevalent in Josh's thinking. So the church discipline in this context was yet another "distinction", and I think it's quite possible that this train of thought might have helped him to get through this. This also explains to me why nothing changed afterwards and Josh just carried on as he did before and got deeper and deeper into the quagmire. When "being under attack" is not your fault, there's no reason to change your behaviour, right?

      To me this again shows the degree of mental gymnastics that are happening in those circles in order to ward off cognitive dissonances or doubts or whatever.

      It also shows that "personal responsibilty" for your actions is not a concept that is held high in those circles. Everything and anything is externalized and pinned either on God (the good stuff, but also God 'testing' you) or Satan (attack, temptation). Having grown up in a fundie environment myself I kind of know this mechanism to a lesser degree out of my own experience. It was only by externalizing all that stuff, esp. the undesirable stuff, that made the pressure of having to be 'perfect' somewhat bearable.

      This is not to defend Josh and his actions, it's rather an attempt to look behind the surface and find some possible answers to "how could this happen?" and "why did this end up (had to end up?) in such a mess?"

      Yeah, the Tuckers seem to be second in command.

      At one point, I think at least two of Jonathan Tucker's kids, David, and Alicia, worked for T.Rex Arms. I'm pretty sure Alicia left awhile ago, and looking at LinkedIn, it seems David did as well (to work for his father, apparently), a little over a year ago.

      I could possibly see them challenging Geoff's leadership if they're not depending on T.Rex for anyone's livelihood.
