Mom's Journal

Obey Your Mother


Commuting

If I had a job or went to school where I had to ride Marta, I would walk as it's a beautiful day. It's only 2 miles or so. Just sayin'.

Oh well, gotta drive to Marta to pick up my kid.


I kind of like it that Livejournal is sort of dead

Back in the day, if I said anything on my LJ that could be interpreted as the slightest bit emo, I would get called, yo! It was embarrassing.

Now I can bitch to my heart's content and nobody gives a shit.

More on Ello
with friend

I just found out that Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg has an account on Ello. (@markzuckerberg)

This is a suggested slogan for Ello from him: "Ello: the Bitcoin of social media"

He's wrong though. It's more like the Google Wave of social media. But we'll see....

----------------

More bonmots from Zuckerman:

"People who don't use their real names on Ello lack integrity."

"This all looks interesting so far. Maybe I'll buy it."

"I guess many of you can't help but wonder if I'll turn out to be the real Mark Zuckerberg.

Which is funny, because I can't help but wonder if this will turn out to be a real social media platform.

Weird, right?"


Autumn

It feels like a rainy early fall evening, which is exactly what it is. The leaves have not turned here yet, but are that sad sort of sickly green that they get right beforehand.

I didn't take a walk today due to the rain, but instead rode on my stationary incumbent bike. Boring. I could only do 20 minutes because my brain was screaming how boring it was. I much prefer walking out in the neighborhood and looking around and thinking about things. I can walk for an hour no problem. It isn't boring.

I have been working on my neighborhood newsletter today and am having a bit of trouble getting everything in.

I'm also making spaghetti for dinner. Seems like a good night for it.

Art Studio

I used to have an art studio in my house. No joke, but we let too much stuff fill up that space and now it's gone. I'm not sure what to do.

I need to make a new studio space but every single inch of our house is filled up with stuff and I don't have the back anymore to clear it out. I guess I should consider turning my bedroom into a studio, which would work, as I have a source of water in there so I could clean my brushes, but it seriously needs to be cleaned out. I still have my Rocky Horror stuff in there, for example, and I'm crowded out. Or I should figure out a way to turn part of my office into a studio, but there is very little spare space there and no water source. But the light is excellent.

I could work in the living room but our neighbor gave us an old portable dishwasher that Dwight could not make work, so it's hanging out in the living room. And there are too many bookshelves and such. We should get rid of stuff.

I really want to get rid of stuff and free up some space, but things are working against me. Mainly my back.

Is it worth trying to become a professional artist when I can't get to things?

Dwight's got all his mother's stuff filling up our space. It's just all there. Our house is too small for all this stuff.


Censorship

Have you ever had anyone tell you to take down a post, no matter if it is Livejournal, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, your own personal blog, a podcast, or whatever?

Very disappointed in the Atheo-Skeptic community lately.

It sounds like the old white men are going wilding on the women, or allegedly so. Big name skeptics are being accused of sexual harassment, sexual assault, rape. Mens Rights Activists are spilling out of the ground as from a kicked fireant hill. One of the accused men is a friend of mine.

I just got told of another famous skeptic who a friend of mine said she had to knee him to get him off her. And someone else told me of a famous atheist who was fired from his last position due to sexual harassment, but is now with another company that has a reputation for being pretty sexist, so he's fine there. And I KNOW that guy.

Dragon con is coming up. I'm going to be giving the stink eye all around.


I wonder if there is a way....

I wonder if there is a way to pull my Facebook entries over into LiveJournal, and heck, Google+, like I do with Twitter. Just to keep my presence on LJ and G+ up.

My baby girl has a boyfriend
with friend

I don't know what I feel about this. He's very nice, feminist, very very smart, and also kind of hyper. I think he's smitten with my daughter but I don't think she's quite as smitten with him. But he's good boyfriend material. Anyway, they are going to prom together this year.

And then my baby is graduating and going off to college. I don't know how I feel about that either.
