Thursday Thoughts - And whatever you're looking for hey don't come around here no more

1. Obviously I am fucking thrilled we have a woman Vice President, that adults who speak in full sentences and work are back in the White House even if they were nowhere near my top picks, I can follow the White House on social media again, some egregious shit of the previous administration was addressed immediately yesterday, there were no inaugural balls, someone has a fucking plan to get this pandemic under control, Eugene Goodman (the Capitol police officer who diverted the insurrectionist MAGA mob) escorting VP Harris and serving as acting Deputy Sergeant at Arms of the United States Senate, and that The Grifter and his Grifter Family are gone, but the best things to come out of the 2021 Presidential Inauguration are the Bernie memes. By far. I saw a Fleetwood Mac Rumours album version and a Springsteen Born to Run album version today too. I am here for all of them. I want to see all of them. I wish I took the day off to see all of them. They are so on brand, and the freaking mittens are made out of recycled materials by a woman in NH. I love it all. 
2. I had myself an early lunch for the festivities, wore purple/gold/white for suffrage, and got some white roses to mark the occasion. No matter how you vote or if you like Kamala Harris, electing a woman VP is a massive milestone in this country.

3. Work is busy, and my spare time has been spent trying to figure out who someone local named just John Michael with the profile photo of Clark Griswold as Santa is. It is a locked down and/or a burner account. Anyone know this person or know someone who knows them? They are extremely comfortable mentioning me, my mental state, and my physical location for someone I've never met, spoken to, or interacted with. I want to know if their online obsession of bringing me up in conversation over the past eight or so months (well, I'm only aware of it in the past eight months, it could be longer) is going to manifest itself physically and be a danger to me or my property. I confronted them online months ago in a neighborhood facebook group and they never answered/disappeared. MFD has also confronted them yesterday since they bring me up in relation to him. No response there either. That's two opportunities to answer that were not taken. I have no mutual friends with them and have no idea why they are fixated on me. Plenty of people hate MFD and don't extend it to bring me into it. If you and I are not friends on facebook and you know who this person is, help me out with a name or at the least a "they are/are not a danger to you." We have cameras at home obviously but I don't walk around with a camera on me obviously. If all they want to do is be a creep about someone they don't know online, that's fine. I just want to make sure that's all it is. Especially in the days of MAGA men angry enough with life to become domestic terrorists with no provocation. 
4. What else. Oh yes. Remove Biden flags, your trump flags, your Confederate Flags, and any bastardized version of the American flag. There is only one flag and it's the American flag and that flag belongs to all of us. The flag display was magnificent this week. 
5. Since we do not consider Biden or Harris gods, we will be holding their feet to the fire to deliver better to the American people. We do not deify leaders or install them on pedestals. They are mortals and they get paid BY us to work FOR us. Don't get twisted again, please. No one was sent here by freaking God to save you, and if they were they are certainly not going to be holding office in D.C. I hope everyone holds the new administration accountable. If your version of accountability or criticism  in regards to Harris is rooted in misogyny or racism, I will come for you and I will be relentless. 

6. As relentless as Ben is in loving the toys he cherishes to death. 
7. I attended a ticketed event with Ijeoma Oluo at the Free Library Author Events on Tuesday for her new book Mediocre: The Dangerous Legacy of White Male America and it was cold and I was tired so I was freaking glad it was virtual and I could lay on my bed looking like a troll throughout. If this was non-Corona Land I would have bought the ticket months ago like I did for this and when the day came I'd be sour because I would just want to go home and put pajamas on. You can skip the sourness and wishing for pajamas and to be horizontal when shit is virtual. 
8. Skies have been stellar at night this week.

9. Reminder: Don't entertain a damn thing. (via)

10. E-cards: Looking forward to Friday in a big way

Happy birthday AEB!

What appears beyond the hyphen in Thursday Thoughts titles is what I'm listening to when I'm starting this - this week is Don't Come Around Here No More by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
