For the love of sweet ancient baby alien space monkey Jebus, this will teach me to stick my nose in other people’s business

For the love of sweet ancient baby alien space monkey Jebus, this will teach me to stick my nose in other people’s business

Back in December, during my sworn off from Facebook month and a half of grieving,  I came home to find my neighbor who I am to this day convinced was a meth head engaged in battery against someone who did not live with her but I had seen there. I don’t remember all the details really, but doing my mandatory reporting and sick of their BS duty, I called it in. Today, I get a bloody subpoena in the mail to testify against who I am only aware of being a victim.

Are you freaking kidding me?

Now I have to go to court at 8 am on MY day off.

Now I have to testify in court.

Now I have to try to remember details.

Now I have to go to the police department and ask for my report so I can remember wtf happened. I don’t know. I don’t remember. I didn’t realize doing the right thing as a neighbor required me to know what happened indeterminately. Damnit.

Sometimes it just doesn’t pay to interfere.

But I am going to be a social worker. Am I required to save the world and report everything? Yes. I have to try. With great power comes great responsibility. And I suppose that means being subpoenaed. Damnit.

I hope he plea bargains. Or they realize that I have nothing to add to their case against HIM. I only saw HER hit him. Why am I being called as a witness against HIM? Oy.

HOLY CRAP I’M SO BUSY.

HOLY CRAP I’M SO BUSY.

So I am really not ignoring my magical blog or blog followers but work is transitioning, grad school work load actually is catching up with my slacking arse, kiddos are requiring attention because they are kiddos and in dumb ol’public school and in social relationships and all that jazz, hubby is working and schooling, stupid dog needs walked, gay marriage ban has just been ruled unconstitutional in California and washington is working on being #8 officially to allow it, its only a year or two out before its federally accepted, I am sure of it, I’m getting hooked up with a new tattoo for my birthday, Facebook has sucked me back in so I am inundated with news and causes that I feel compelled to act on and read up on, Mt. Hood is trying to explode, my coffee cup is empty and I am just attempting to breathe. Oh add to that the headache I blame on my contacts/glasses, my friends who are convinced it is something more sinister, which leads me to wonder if it is…..AND my hubby got invited into the Masons. No fair. I want a penis. I thought if you wanted to be one, ask one? No one said they can ask you. How come he got recruited? I wanna be recruited. Stupid anatomy.

I digress? Maybe? WTF was I talking about again?

 

Oy. The dog needs attention NOW. Bless me precious sweet ancient baby alien space monkey Jebus.

All the SOPA in the world isn’t going to wash me clean.

Standard

I understand what everyone is saying about it and how it’s intended to protect companies interests from piracy and blah blah….Even the President’s people say “While we believe that online piracy by foreign websites is a serious problem that requires a serious legislative response, we will not support legislation that reduces freedom of expression, increases cybersecurity risk, or undermines the dynamic, innovative global Internet. (http://mashable.com/2012/01/16/white-house-sopa-petition/)

The conspiracy theorist in me says SOPA and it will pass to keep us from organizing a revolution. How many revolutions were recently organized via Twitter and similar sites. Just something else to undermine the Constitution. Add this onto the Patriot Act….Ol’Dubya loves it…Are these the countries we want to share company with: Turkmenistan, Vietnam, Tunisia, Syria, People’s Republic of China, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Cuba, Burma, and North Korea?  (http://listverse.com/2010/10/02/top-10-countries-that-censor-the-internet/)

I don’t know. I am becoming quite disenchanted with the entire governmental world. I don’t think it matters who we vote for or what we do, shit is going to happen however “THEY” want it to. Look at the Occupy Movement, look at the internet’s role in it and its progression. They don’t want that again. They saw the power of small groups and the expression of groupthink and they underestimated the power of small groups. We may be a generation of ADD and we may seem apathetic. Many may not know who Margaret Mead is, but  they are beginning to understand her words:

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever does”

Look out Big Brother. Just like the drinking gourd songs and all other movements with secret codes and Speakeasys we can do something even if you make it more difficult….

Ah crap! I digressed and made this totally different from what I intended…. Oh well, if you want to do something and feel like you didn’t sit here and watch your rights get chipped away, add your name to this:

It won’t put your name on a list it wasn’t already on 🙂

Someone help! I need an intervention!

So I made it over 6 weeks without Facebook. And then, like promised, I went back in the middle of the night to get my poetry and pictures ; the multiverse worked against me.

Actually, Zuckerberg worked against me because you have to leave your account active for 24 hours to get all your notes and pictures available. Effing bastard. So I did. It’s like satellite TV; it hooks you into the premium channels with the first 3 months free. Then you forget to shut them off and just keep paying the bill. Only I haven’t forgotten. Each morning I wake up and I think “Ugh my Facebook is on.”

Seriously. Aren’t there more important things to worry about? Like school starting next Monday? My fear of not being able to handle quarter terms? Social work stuff? Work? Bills? The Cascadia fault? Zombie apocalypse? 2012? AGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH

I digressed.

Anyhoo….yeah. I seriously feel like a relapsed addict. Charlie Sheen and shtuff. I have people messaging me begging me not to delete. Family members who are so happy I am back on. An apparent fan base who love to hate me and correct my grammar, yet look forward to reading my sarcastic and witty view of the world.

Dang.

I even find myself rationalizing the use of Facebook for this blog, “my poor Twitter can’t carry it all!”

Oh well. I need to go now, the hooker who’s naked and screaming in my closet is starting to annoy me.

FB is created by an evil genius.

Just a quick note regarding my day. I went onto fb to get my pics and some poetry for ya’ll, and that bastard! You have to leave your account active for 24 hours to get access to MY stuff. Eff you fb.

So I will be active for a few more hours. Damnit.

That is all.
