According to Trish

not worth reading since 2009


In all this talk about making America great again, there’s one thing that I have not seen mentioned anywhere and it affects all of us.   Where were all the farking Nestle Crunch bars at Halloween this year? There were a total of TWO in entirety of the avalanche of kids’ candy this year. TWO. Two = Unpilferable. And no, I don’t want to buy my own because I like the little fun-size ones. I want it how I want it and I...

I am going to be mad for a while


Posted By on Nov 9, 2016

I first heard the yowl at 9:37 PM last night . “MOTHERFUCKERRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!” It was coming out of my own mouth. I was surprised at how loud it was. As I walked into the kitchen, I pictured hurling my wine glass at the brick fireplace. Gawd, that would’ve felt so good. The election was fucking me over. America, and my fellow citizens, were fucking me over. The election process, the media, and my new neighbor on the...

Hope the weather is nice in whatever reality you’re inhabiting today. I love you even though...

She’s getting a pacemaker today and hopefully should be able to go home tomorrow. I’m having bad thoughts today. Not about my mom’s health, because she seems to be doing well. Rather, I’m having bad thoughts about the...

A report from the “genius belt”


Posted By on Sep 25, 2016

Yesterday was Museum Day Live! That exclamation point is apparently part of the official name of the thing. Although this next one is not! That one was my own. Exclamation points are fun sometimes! (Also mine. And here’s one more!) Why the word “live” was added to the name of this day is beyond me. Does it denote that you have to be alive to visit? Or maybe that you can visit the museums live and in-person, which I...
