Fuck Equality, I Want Liberation

            bell hooks

“Within patriarchy woman has no legitimate voice. Her voice is either constructed in complicity or resistance. If the choice is not radical then we speak only what the patriarchal culture would have us say. If we do not speak as liberators we collapse under the weight of this effort to speak within patriarchal confines or lose ourselves without dying.”

I’ve Been Your Fool Before, I Probably Will Again



I had this on cassette. I still kind of love them. (However, I beg of you, do not ever listen to their cover of “Fortunate Son.”) I had a little alt.country phase in the late 80s, but I think we called it cowpunk then?

I also thought it would be funny to have a sensitive superhero named Ione Justice. TYPOGRAPHIC JOKE.

Feeling a little better today, may creep outside.

Having a SITUATION

Let me set the scene

First, since the vet wants Fritz to stay hydrated, there are bowls of water around the house. Second, he is eating wet food on the veterinarian’s orders, which means Monster is eating wet food, because she displays her full Cat Victim Performance when he gets it and she doesn’t, and I am sick of dealing with it. Wet food means fruit flies, so there are bowls of apple cider vinegar with cling wrap around the house to catch the flies. Finally, to add the final piece of madhouse chic to the mix, the windows are all blocked out with poster board to keep out the heat.

As for me, I’m having an “inflammatory episode” which means that I need to keep ice all up and down my left side to try and calm everything down and prevent more scar tissue from forming around the nerves. “But Mikki,” you think. “How do you keep ice over 1/2 of your body?” Well, my friends, after much trial and error, it’s a combination of frozen vegetables, Zip-loc bags full of ice, and actual medical-ish ice things. Some are duct-taped to my clothing and some are tied on with scarves, so it’s kind of like a zombie Steven Tyler thing. Of course, this means when I lie down, the cats must snuggle together on my right side, which gets super hot.

I have two stories due Monday.
