I am so excited for Christmas this year. I have gotten the kids all Pajamas for christmas eve and for Christmas day the big ones all get gift cards (and cheye gets a scarf because I couldn't pass it up). And Teegan gets clothes and toys and a high chair and a car seat since he's just about grown out of his infant seat. All the wrapping, all the presents. We still need to get the candy and baubles for the kids's stockings. Teegan's stocking has 5 kinds of beginning baby food and a box of rice cereal. I didn't didn't get anything for Cody, and he didn't get anything for me, but that's okay. I'm so excited about baby presents I dont' care about me. I have a gift from mom and a gift from Liz and that's awesome!

I need to write cards and bake. All the cookies I baked yesterday are gone. I think tonight I'll do snickerdoodles. And maye banana bread.

I have to get this out of me and I don't know where else to do it. Not facebook because I don't want my extended family to know this stuff. Not twitter because it's too much. Not Slack because it's a fun place, not for this.

So back to my roots I go.

When the election results came rolling in I began to cry. Not because Hillary lost but because hate won. Hate and bigotry and ignorance and, yes, stupidity. Apparently Trump appeals to "the working man"...that mythical white man who's just joe america who doesn't see that America is so much bigger, richer, so much MORE than his shitty little town and his shitty little mortgage.

I am genuinely desperately afraid. This isn't hyperbole. I thought Bush would be a bad president and he was, no arguing that, but the man did his best with the advise he had. I don't think Trump is going to listen to advise. I don't think he's a good man or a good person. I think he's going to run this country into the ground. I think we're going to see a market like none other. He's not going to bring jobs. Even if he does have a grand infrastructure rebuilding plan I fear he'll get it going and everyone will get stiffed on their pay. I think he's a hateful man, a white supremecist, and a rapist. He is human garbage, the sort of lauded elite who gets away with what he get away with because he has money.

I am absolutely terrified that people I love are going to be deported. People I love are going to be put on registries and lists. People I know who are poor and need aid? That aid is going to evaporate. LGBT? Fuck you. Gay marriage, gone. Roe v Wade, gone. Health care? adios.

Everything Obama has done despite monumental obstruction is going to be overturned. We are going to be worse off than ever.

But it won't be ALL bad because if you fall in line with The State and do what The State says you'll be fine. No more welfare, go build a road. Disabled? Well, too bad. No more of that free ride. Babies? Get a rich husband.

There are so many problems in this country and I don't believe he had idea one on how to help anything let alone fix anything and I am afraid.

I am afraid for my queer children. I am scared for my trans children.

I am scared for my half Thai son in law, and by extention my quarter-Thai grandson.

I'm scared of my disability standing. I'm scared of Cody's disability standing.

I'm terrified of what might happen to medicare and social security and how we'll take care of mom in case, God forbid, anything was to happen to her.

I'm afraid of the hate and attacks already happening.

Trump gave all the fringe fuckers who are all white power the "legitimacy" to come out o the wood work.

When will the lynchings begin? Who will be the next Matthew Sheppard? How long until Planned parenthood goes away, gay marriage goes away, how long until everything we've worked so hard for just ends in the persuit of "making America great again?"

I am sick and I am scared.

And I just keep crying.

Jacob has always had anxiety but it was always something he could cope with and manage with my help. But since May or more June actually he's been getting progressively more and more anxious and his behaviors have become concerning. So last Wednesday I took him to Fronteir Behavioral Health and we did an intake and evaluation and it was clear by the time we were finished that Jake has a very well defined case of obsessive compulsive personality disorder. In the last week I have learned so much about this and he feels better a bit just being able to name what's going on. I've been very positive with him, that this is something that is a part of him, that it's not wrong, and my only concern is if it contributes to his anxiety or if he has behaviors that interfere with his daily quality of life.

Scool starts when the sun comes up and I already talked to Mr. Neely and got Jake's 504 plan amended to reflect his diagnosis. If the therapist refers him to the ARNP for medication in October I will have to update it again with that information. His accommodations remain the same, though, and we'll have a review meeting in either September or October. Interesting side note- Jake thought everyone had a 504 plan. He didn't realize that it's a special plan for students with special needs.

New Year Pimping

New year, new ME game! Not a new new game, London Calling has been going strong since July 2014 and we have some great characters and fantastic stories that have been (and are being) told. It's a game that it's easy to play in, everyone's laid back, play fast or play slow. You have so much freedom with AUing a character and if you want to know if something will be accepted shoot a query to the mod account and we'll be happy to help! And you can transfer pups from other games. Bring on the apps! Want to know who you'll be playing with? Here's the PLAYERS so far.

Check out the game here






London Calling RPG

London Calling is a pan-fandom RPG set in modern day London. It's a place where characters from a variety of books, movies, television shows, and other various forms of media mingle with one another, alongside various player-created original characters.

It is also a game that allows players to write and explore the characters they love however they want in a very open, and easy going environment. We believe that good writers deserve the space to really create, and we encourage our players to make their characters plots as vast and wide as their imaginations will allow. We want to see the places you create and problems your characters may develop without you constantly worrying about needing mod approval.

New Game

I've been pimping it pretty hard but I want to make sure everyone's gotten a chance to participate. The mods have decided to sweeten the deal for a select few.

If you have ever played at either Tabula Rasa or Killjoy then you are invited to bring a transfer pup WITHOUT APPLICATION

This is a VERY limited time offer. You have until July 16 to send an email to londoncallingmods@gmail.com with the name of your pup, what game you played them at and a simple declaration you'd like to bring them to London Calling. Then join the comms with the journal and we'll get you set up.

IT'S THAT SIMPLE

but you have all of 2 days to do this so jump on it! It's going to be fun and it's always such a blast getting in on a game on the first day.

Normally on 4th we go to Cody's family and we have a good time and it's fun and whatever. But not this year. This year his sis is out of town. So I came over with all the kids (none of whom even wanted to come with me last night) and we go to my cousin Michele's.

Preface: Mom's a huge racist and so's her brother, that would be my cousin Rachel's dad (and michele's too).

We had dinner and it was lovely. Then after dinner me and Rachel and her wife Heather and Rachel's sis Michele go outside on the patio to pit cherries. We had about 100lbs of cherries to do so we're all sitting around, getting the pits out of them so they can can them for pies and then make the rest into jam.

Heather goes in the house to wash her hands and out comes Charlie, and then Cheye. And they look at us and say "We didn't think it was possible for anyone to be more racist than grandma, but then uncle Robert started talking"

So to sum up, what happened is-
Robert and mom were talking shit about Mexicans and were being super racist and hateful. Charlie (who is not passive and is more aggressive than I'm comfortable with lol) replied to him with logic and reason. This pissed him off a lot, but there's an unspoken rule that you can be as mean to you want to your own kids but not to your sister's kids and so since the girls belong to me and I belong to mom he couldn't get mad at them. So Heather comes in, sees whats up and tells the girls to come outside and pit cherries, trying to mediate the conflict. But Robert's so mad he starts yelling at Heather who kept her cool for only so long and then the two of them got into a screaming fuck you argument and my aunt Debbie was yelling at Robert to leave Heather alone but Robert told Heather to fuck off and go pit cherries and she was angry and said Fuck You Bob and then she left the party and she was crying and sobbing and Rachel refused to look at her dad and my mom said nothing about it AT ALL and the party carried on with no one mentioning it except those of us out on the patio pitting cherries.

And apparently Robert said he doesn't care if he pissed off "those little girls", but the funny thing is...he didn't piss them off. Cheye and Charlie simply think he's a sad, bitter, backward old man, a relic of a dying generation that the world will probably be better off for not having. And Heather's calmed down and will wait for Robert to apologize because Debbie always makes him.

And my mother wonders why I don't come home more often.

Super excited for this, you guys. This is the first game I've ever played in that is set in a real place. You can have as much or as little verisimilitude as you want XD Reqs are super easy (1 thread of 6 tags every 2 months to prove you're active). And we've already got some great characters. You can basically AU any pup any way you want so long as it makes sense in your app. And you can transfer any pup you've played anywhere else. If you've got worries of how to fit a pup in email the mod mail and we'll be happy to brainstorm with you.

I'M SUPER EXCITED OKAY? YES GOOD

COME PLAY WITH US AT KIN CITY




Our game evolves as our characters evolve. Right now we've got a great mix and of late it's been more spies and cops on one side and vampires and faeries on the Other Side. It's hella fun and you should all come. You can transfer in a pup you've played previously with a minimal app process. MINIMAL. And you have absolute freedom to do basically anything you'd ever want to do. So come on! It's a small game and everyone is super welcoming and everyone's just there to have some fun and do some quality story telling.
