Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.
(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)
Something you’re very good at: Pool playing in dive bars, whiskey drinking, building a campfire, possession of a green thumb, drawing a nearly perfect giant circle using one arm and a chalk/white board. Thrifting, I know I give good advice, but not always head others.
Something you believe in: Love.
Favourite way to spend a day alone: Iced or Hot Tea, comfortable or no pants, an emotionally driven plot line preferably set 100+ years ago in the form of a film or book. Groom and chase Pippa around the apartment. Bread baking, repotting plants, or watering the ones I have, outdoor time, on the roof at the farm or in the park. Big comfort food dinner time. Buy a pair of shoes, a plant needing of some TLC
Something you wish you could change:
I am quick to open my mouth, sometimes the results get me in trouble, and sometimes they are fantastic. However, it doesn’t need to be changed, just adjusted.
