Part Time Punks

I got a bloody nose. Smiths night can bring out the dance demons of otherwise reasonable people.

Oh Dreary Day.

Been working hard lately. Holidays are a mess, don't you think?

Just in time for the Holidays

Lookit this flier I received in the mail today! Kudos to the buyers of Kenmart for having a pulse.

Economy Got You Down

There's a term in sociology -I think it's called Double Jeopardy or Triple Jeopardy or something ominous like that. It essentially means that people who belong to two or more minority groups are exponentially more disadvantaged than people who belong to only one. Here's a visual:

Shit, I thought. I'm tripally-threatened. Though I will say that just about everyone I know in their 20's is poor, and we all try to help each other out, so maybe I'm one foot in, one foot out on that section. THEN, on my way home from a doctor's appointment at the county hospital (I also don't have health insurance, whoops!) I noticed this vehicle, just around the corner from my apartment:

and realized that my life is AWESOME. This car is so serious, I can't stand it. I've been in a bit of a funk lately, and Louis-mobile made me smile so hard inside, I almost teared up. It's hard being young independent -you try to do the right thing, maybe go back to school, not be a burden on your parents, make time for doing work that matters to you- but there will be time when finding cool stuff no longer has the power to save you. So buck up.

Happy Holidays.
