    I'm so glad that I'm still on vacation (though it's my last day) and I'll be missing the first debate. I'm so fucking over this depressing election (Biggest asshole baby manchild and the LCD vs Most Corrupt and her apologists/Well We Can't Vote For The Douche So Eh, I Guess We Have To Vote For Her vs the Wildcards, who either think the dimwit who believes no rules is great, states can totes handle it, and this wouldn't result in worse things, or the short sighted folks who will get the Asshole elected by voting for a twat capitalizing on their sadness with unrealistic policies). I will be checking out the highlights and the comments in the Politics thread.

    I've had a real good time this past week in Vegas. I learned last year that a guy who doesn't gamble or drink can still have fun here.

    I am excited about the debate tonight!
    And it's also bad ass that we can stream it on Roku with the CBSN app, considering we never ever watch regular tv and have even misplaced the remote that changes the cable channels.

    So we got new Roku boxes, upgrading from Roku 2 to Roku 3, and i swear to god the ostensible Wifi reception has more than doubled.

    I'm not sure if they just pick up wifi better or if the new software runs on less wifi, but it is the SHIT.
    For instance, the Roku news-each item used to take up to a minute to load. Now most of the items load in less than a second, and 3 seconds is a long wait.

    As I've posted, here, I've had a ton of fun in Vegas while not drinking at all and doing VERY minimal gambling (like, $20 in quarters in the Wheel of Fortune slots). It's still pretty expensive for the shows and entertainment, but there's shopping, gawking, REALLY good dining, swimming, sunning, etc.

    last night, my wife and i hung out with our close friend (she was in our wedding party) who we hadn't seen in several months (and had grown kind of distant from in the last...year?), and it was so nice. i feel like i regained something wonderful that i had lost, and i'm so happy.

    happy national coming out day everyone!
    .
    in case you don't know, i'm queer, genderqueer/trans (though i'm not currently doing anything about it, and i'm ok with that for the moment), and i've always been pretty open about these things, because i don't see them as something to hide or be ashamed of. however, there are people that feel they are, which makes people in the queer community feel unsafe and unwelcome in the world, and that makes me sad.
    .
    i hope that as the world moves forward, there begins to be more acceptance and less expectation of people having to come out, because there will be less assumption about heterosexuality being the default.
    .
    if you ever need someone to talk to about any of these sorts of things, my ears (and arms) are open. <3

    While I've personally stopped noticing any physical changes (which bums me out), I must still be doing something right because today I'm wearing my favorite pants which haven't fit me in almost 14 years.

    There's still about 15-25lbs of work to do but this is definitely progress I am pleased with.

    I got nominated and then selected to go to a women's leadership conference through school. Not sure how or why, but it happened, and I'm excited!

    I talked to my best friend for the first time in quite awhile yesterday. We ended up talking for two hours (which is actually short for us). It was awesome. I was in such a good mood the rest of the night. It's only been a day but I am itching to talk to her again.

    I'm no longer unemployed, and I'm making more than I was at my previous position AND I'm getting my severance check in the mail soon.

    my little brother offered me a hand-me-down today...it's like a 2011 ford fusion hatchback thing i think!
    I can't remember what the car looks like but i knoe it's a ford fusion.
    Time to get my driver's license!

    edit: it's actually a Ford Focus ZTW wagon.
    He told me if i got tired on a trip, it's possible to sleep in the back of it, lolol

    I'm so fucking excited. I sent presents to their whole family-birthday presents for my brother and his son, "just because" presnets for his wife and daughter.
    And they decided they needed to give me something. I can't believe it's a fucking CAR!
    Sorry for double post, but i just can't believe this!

    Now i can take some college courses, at least at the community college, in amarillo!
    And now i can run up to denver and see my brother whenever i like, or down to San Angelo to see my dad!
    I can drive to australia to see @Ryan ! (oh, wait, that might not work.)

    just saw dave chappelle in a small club in nyc. bout 150 people. prob the best comedy set i've ever seen.

    he did 30 min of rehearsed material which had me literally crying. then he just started riffing and getting drunk. very real talk bout the chappelle show, his son, and being a father. it was deep then he'd drop a bomb and kill it.

    he's def a GOAT.

    @allegro and @allegate , i raised hell until they gave me the GI doctor referal AND the pain doctor referal.

    Thank you two for the advice.
    If you hadn't said something, i probably would have just let them run over me.

    I didn't like @tony.parente at first either. He's a grower not a shower.

    Most of this page of this thread gives me some cheer.
