Still a stop on tour.

Funny Facebook Post of the Week

The show was good, but almost no one showed up…Architect / Worms of the Earth.

Andrea E. Menzies If Daniel Myer were playing in downtown LA, New York, or Austin, TX I would be worried it would be a sold out show. But not here in Richmond land. It was like 30 people tops. In Texas when Assemblage 23 played the fire marshal had to kick people out because they overbooked the show so badly people could not breath.

Andrea E. Menzies Oh well at least we were still a stop on the tour, and the tickets were cheap.

Day with good photos.

Diet Before and After Nov 2016 to March 2017 lost 15 pounds pic 1

Funny Facebook moment of the week.

Having that “I just lost 15 pounds in three months” kind of a day with good photos. Woot!

Austin Moore, Devon Gritolares and 3 others

I got sick for a while and could NOT work out. Glad that part is over and my workout is now working. The hard part is taking that “before” photo. No one wants photos when they are not looking their best. Yet last time I said I got smaller no one was thinking I had “really” lost the pounds, and so I took a photo this time to show it. I moved to Gold’s Gym, used a tight lacing corset 5 days a week (30 dollars Amazon), and got the low fat cookbook for the Alli diet plan ($2 used on Amazon) to do it.

If you name your Eevee Sakura or Tamao they turn to Espeon and Umbreon now.

Andrea E. MenziesNaming my Eevee Sakura just got me my first Espeon! They are new with the last update. Also, you can buy top hats for your character! Pokemon Go is now a fashion show. They need some shoe updates super bad before it will really look like a me character.

Facebook moment of the week:

Going to Petersburg or Fort Lee is a big NOPE for me. I do not accidentally avoid these places like the plague.

Andrea E. Menzies There is NO changing my thinking on this issue. I gave them a chance and they failed ultra-bitterly to be halfway civil. You are more likely to get a cat into water.

Andrea E. Menzies On a related note I have mace and knives I keep for self defense in my purse. Anyone trying to drag me to the Petersburg or Fort Lee area will be sliced in the eye. There are strange stories that I liked living there and dealing with military people.  I completely hated it with every ounce of my soul, and I am fully sick of getting email about it at this point.

 


Long list.

womens-march-dc-exlarge-2017-pic-1

My local Facebook feed in the Virginia and DC area is a long list of people who got taken to jail in the DC protests. I’m sort of shocked at how much the main stream media is not reporting the fires, mace in the face of women, small children, and mass arrests of people.  People marching are not “a little angry at Trump” they are in full anger mode. The police are not “simply watching” the protest in an objective way.  Workers for Trump are doing a mass shut down of programs to help stop violence against women.

Fear the weather.

Funny Facebook post of the week.

I wanted to go to more protest this week. A few women’s groups at my night school college were getting together for a protest march. Unfortunately, inauguration is outside with rain in January in the Virginia cold. Who made it normal for the inauguration be outside in the coldest month? This is so not the Texas weather I am used to seeing. A famous quote is “Tippecanoe and Tyler Too” the name sake of Virginia’s Tyler college. (http://study.com/academy/lesson/tippecanoe-and-tyler-too-meaning-history-significance.html) “William Henry Harrison became the ninth president of the United States, and he did so with a winning campaign slogan: ‘Tippecanoe and Tyler Too.'” Yet William Harrison “died 31 days into his term of complications from pneumonia, serving the shortest tenure in United States presidential history.” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Henry_Harrison) due to not wearing a jacket in freezing inauguration weather. People should fear inaugration weather for it can kill.

Well, the protests will be huge this year.

Andrea E. Menzies All the out-of-town protest people are making Virginia rich at this point.

At doctor’s today as I am sick with the flu. No going to DC for the inauguration for me this weekend.

2 You and Heather Athena Black
Andrea E. Menzies A few women’s groups wanted me to help protest this week, but I got sick and DC has cold rain up there.


Well Behaved Women

Watching on Netflix the Frida Kahlo movie with Salma Hayek and Antonio Banderas this week. The cover talks about her controversial political and sexual reputation in that she was a communist and openly bisexual.  Yet museums don’t avoid her artwork at all, and Netflix has about 12 full PBS specials on her.  Laurel Thatcher Ulrich once said the popular phrase “Well behaved women seldom make history.” Kahlo was high on the list of examples to that rule.

Back to school.

A funny Facebook post of the week.

I love my new Monday-Wednesday Tyler college night school classes, but getting the books will be hard to do this week.  In state residency for college in Virginia was not easy to get this year.  Now I have it and am at long last able to go to more classes.  In theory school is about a smart brain, hard work, and focus. Sadly in the USA it is often about having money for fees, books, and gas back and fourth from campus.

Christopher Colton Ingersoll Ever since the textbook people sued Kinko’s for making ‘course packets’ it’s been amazing how much money they rake in. The new digital textbooks are even worse; same price but they give you a password that expires after a year so you can’t even keep it
