Pity Without Mercy

Pity without mercy. That about sums up how I feel about the people who are defending Brett Kavanaugh's alleged behavior, those who defend Ronald McBlumpkin's self-described behavior, and every numbnarded tool in this world who:
  • gets off on degrading their sexual partner and then boasting about it to their supposedly-not-sexual-or-romantic friends, whose approval they desperately need
  • brags about how they pay, coerce, or force people into sexual acts because they don't even realize it's not cute to admit they are devoid of personal attractions
  • staggers around town like Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, moaning about how "If I cannot inspire love, I will cause fear" and also lawsuits, lots of lawsuits, and also mass barfing

I feel a nauseous sort of disgust mixed with pity about such revolting human failures. It's the sort of pity that does not inspire well wishes so much as regret that this thing ever existed and that I had to know about it. Like, what demented god or freak of nature gave this thing life, anyway? How could it not hate being alive? Why must it have any power over the United States government? And will I ever be able to stop making this face and this retching sound when presented with the horrible fact that some self-loathing masochist has voluntarily had sex with it?

Damn you, Stormy Daniels! You didn't have to share all that information with the world like a case of drug-resistant eyeball warts.

And what on earth, heterosexual women who think "all men" are like Bro K? How deprived of basic human dignity and good sex your life must be! When did you start believing that all men are slime eels and that you are unworthy of love? HASHTAG SAD.

These are just my personal feelings, politics aside.

35 Great Things About Turning 35

The prime of life starts at 35! It's the best-kept secret from younger people, but your 35th birthday is a major cause for celebration. For mine, I have made my own listicle of 35 reasons why experts agree that 35 is the best age to be:
You get to say, "I'm 35." The number 35 carries so much more gravitas than 30, but you're only a few years older. At 34, I've started fudging my age--by adding a year. People automatically take me seriously, and if they don't, at least they tell me I look young for my age. (Eye roll, hair toss, "whatever.")  35-year-olds DGAF. Inner chill reaches new heights at 35. Despite its #2 status on this list, it's the #1 response I hear about what's best about hitting 35. My gorgeous friend Nerlie was beautiful and resilient and wise beyond her years in high school, but now, at age 35, she gets to fully enjoy being herself on her own terms. She writes,  "I've survived so much that I don't waste time o…

A Bad Romance Starring Till Lindemann, Sophia Thomalla, Gavin Rossdale, Simone Thomalla, Sven Martinek, Andy LaPlegua, and Leila Lowfire

November 2018 Update: Sophia is settled in with Gavin now, I guess, and Till is spending time with 36-year-old (hell yeah, thank you, sir) Ukrainian singer Svetlana Loboda. He is either her latest babydaddy or doing her the favor of bearding as such (not that he's great with beards, but we don't mind) to help her get distance from her crazy ex who cuts his wrists over her. The juice continues...

To misquote Gaga, "I don't speak German, but I can look at foreign tabloids and guess what's going on if you like."


I guess it would be more professional and ladylike for me to be above this sordid celebrity gossip, but I'm not. I'm so not.


So let's see if I've got this straight. From what I gather...


Metalgod Till Lindemann, 54, and model Sophia Thomalla, 27 (upper left) recently exited a five-year, on-off, opennish relationship, which began when Sophia's actress mother Simone (upper right, in the center) and Simone's then-lover (between her m…

Oh! the Suspense...

So here I am listening to BBC Radio 1 and trying to keep calm and carry on while I accept that Rammstein's latest album release goal is spring 2019. I had just set a goal for myself of finishing my draft of Matka Danu Miklagarth by the album release, but at this point, I hope to have Matka written, rewritten, revised, edited, and queried by then. By God, I could have an agent by that time if I'm very lucky. Anyway, what is it that Abraham Lincoln said? "Good things come to those who hustle while they wait." Yeah, I'm pretty sure I saw that on a motivational poster.

Okay, new goals. I want to have my book in the hands of beta readers by Christmas this year and start querying in the winter. And right now, I may just have to console myself and learn to appreciate lengthy suspense--and suspension--at the longest canopy walk in the United States, which opens this weekend. See you there?

OH HOLD THE PRESSES! I just now found out--as I am sitting here typing this--that…
