If you have not picked up a copy yet, I highly recommend Caste: The Origins of Our Discontent. I’m only a little bit in, and it is fantastic. It’s such a comfortable read and her storytelling is amazing and so smooth. After just a few paragraphs I felt like I had eased into a pair of comfortable slippers.
On a personal note, sorry for not posting more. I’ve been in a mood, distracted, busy, worried about paying for house repairs, and a little depressed. I’ve been spending time ignoring the news, not responding to non-work emails, and biding my time with house and garden and canning stuff, slipping into a gaming k-hole, and reading and watching tv. All the seasons of Chuck are on Amazon Prime, btw.
I just don’t want to think about these fucking people, and I know in a couple weeks that is all I am going to be able to think about as I get to phone calling and door knocking. They’re just so fucking awful and I hate them so much. Sometimes I worry if it is unhealthy to hate them this much, then I realize only a fucking monster could NOT hate them this much. And so it goes.
Keep your chin up, people.
