Come join us for a Dodgers/Giants game discussion thread tomorrow at 1 PM PT
Plus a quick update from me about what’s happening in my life
We’ll be doing our first game discussion thread tomorrow during the Dodgers and Giants game. We will laugh, we will cry, we will welcome special secret surprise guests! This game thread will be available to paying subscribers only so if you haven’t stepped up your membership yet and are thinking of doing so, now’s the time!
If you’d like to become a paying subscriber but times are too tight right now (hello, gas prices) I have three free paid memberships that other members of our fantastic community have graciously donated. Just email me privately and I’ll hook you up. Also, if you are in a good financial position and want to help someone else with a sub, email me privately and we’ll make it happen. I thank you all again for your continued patience with me as I navigate easily the worst year of my life.
Just to give you guys a little update on why I haven’t been writing as much as I’d like: after things calmed down after my breast cancer scare, other members of my family fell Ill with various terrifying ailments. I left LA for a week to help support those lining up care for one. Additionally, Covid has ravaged my family and friends, which has sent me spiraling with panic attacks because i cannot lose one single person from my beloved tribe. Also, every ligament in my ankle has been torn since when i fell on Thanksgiving and after six months of near constant pain I’m finally getting treatment. It’s helping but also it’s very hard and I cry a lot just trying to do basic stuff with my ankle that my brain won’t let me do. If you are lucky enough to have the full use of your legs, please don’t ever take this for granted.
I continue to be despondent that half the country doesn’t care that Donald Trump thought a violent mob should hang his Vice President, and that this isn’t grounds for disqualifying him from running again. He will probably win, because he appeals to white supremacists, and this nation is very fixated on keeping straight white men in charge so they can get richer, more powerful, and keep the rest of us in our place.
My building got sold and the new landlord is doing a gut renovation of the apartment next door so for the last month I’ve heard nothing but jackhammering when I sit down to write.
My dog is so terrified of strangers and, everything, really, that I’m sending him away for a month to a trainer I hope can help him because it breaks my heart. The next stop for George is Prozac.
Oh, And I’m still being sued by the man who now has the record game suspension length under baseball’s domestic violence policy.
2022 has been …a lot
But I’m still here. Still putting one foot in front of the other. And hopefully I’ll be back to writing three times a week soon as I heal from all this trauma. I love you all and your support means the world.
Now, please join our thread tomorrow! It’s gonna be fun, I promise.
