Have you thought about how you're going to help for the next election cycle? I have been getting some horribly messaged and desperate fundraising emails from major party candidates and organizations that are a real turn off, and I don't have the kind of cash that'll make a difference. But! I do have hours to fill stuffing envelopes, knocking on doors, and registering voters. So, that's what I'm going to do, especially since I live in a state that debuted super terrible voter ID laws in the last election. What about you? It's a good time to make a plan.
Also, don't forget to call your reps EVERY DAY and talk to their staff about healthcare and anything else on your mind. Resist Bot will fax your reps via text (on your end), and emails are OK, too, but noting is better than a good old fashioned phone call. And remember, nothing is more patriotic than resistance-- it's LITERALLY what our country was founded on. Also, this story is HILARIOUS and terrifying (we watched Idiocracy in bed last night, and it wasn't even funny anymore).
The only thing that I can think of that's more patriotic than resistance is, of course, getting drunk and blowing shit up.
We started the day on a nutritionally high note with cookie bar frosting for breakfast because I tried to make cookies for a party and they turned out flat (WTAF? My cookies have been perfect forever and then a friend's kid asks me to make them and I RUIN THEM? Flop sweat? I don't get it) so I made them into cookie bars, but they were kind of blah, so I made this amazing old brownie frosting recipe of my mom's and stuck tiny flags in them and they were PERFECT because MERICA.
We have some amazing friends with an amazing house who throw amazing parties, and Tuesday was no exception.
My friend's party was unicorn themed, an Dorothy saw the picture of this balloon and the unicorn bracelet I brought home, and has decided that not only does she want her next bday party to be unicorn-themed, she also wants to be a unicorn rainbow fairy for Halloween. PERFECT.
