Three good things that happened on my birthday:

1. We went to the zoo and they had special times where you could pay a dollar to feed a giraffe a carrot. The giraffe I fed went for more carrot than expected and I got some giraffe spit on my fingers.

2. Had a mint chocolate ice cream shake.

3. Youngest sister bought me a book I wanted and managed to get it to mom's house in time for my birthday. Middle sister is currently in town so I got to see her.

1. My birthday is Sunday. I've been extra disabled lately and have no energy. My mom is going to want to make a big deal because that's what my mom always does with birthdays. I've made an attempt to communicate that I'd just as soon skip having a birthday this year, but it probably hasn't worked.
1.b. I've got brainweasels over people getting me things right now too. The SU has agreed to not get me anything and that I'll order stuff for myself in the next couple of weeks.

2. I've got an orthopedist appointment next Wednesday and it can't come soon enough. My right knee has tipped from "hurts" to "I'm going to sit on my leg until it goes numb because then I won't feel it for a minute". Which is you know ::waves hands:: a thing.
2.b. Last weeks rain migraine ran headlong into the period migraine ran into this weeks rain migraine. I have no meds for migraines. The resulting tension headache has everything from the top of my head to mid thigh locked up. I could handle either the knees/hip/ankle/shoulder/wrist situation or the migraine thing but both is unfair and I'd like a refund for this body.

3. Kids camp at work has started. It's the best time of the year. Kids are awesome. If I could stand the parents I might consider a kid related job. I'm just happy that all the add/adhd kids I've got in my summer group have parents who are aware.

Religion and Politics

If I counted the hours, I would not be at all surprised to learn that I spend roughly twelve hours a day thinking about, or reading about, politics. A smallish percent of that is devoted to the intersection of politics and religion. Which lead to this morning's reading of A florist caught between faith and financial ruin in the Christian Science Monitor. I cannot recall ever feeling so torn between two incompatible beliefs, the belief that one has to live up to the dictates of one's own morals/religion and other being that discrimination is flat out wrong.

Eventually I remembered about those religious sermons concerning slavery and how the bible said slavery was A-Okay. Eventually the church caught up and decided that slavery was a bad thing but I don't remember how, exactly, that change took place. I wish I could because I think whatever strategy was used then will have to be re-employed to correct church thinking and teaching when it comes to marriage.

On the verge of bad words

One of the stories I remember from childhood is the "The Emperor's New Clothes;" when I tell it to myself it begins not with the weavers but with his staff claiming that he is dressed fabulously and that they are in the presence of true greatness. And that was all I could think of when I read Trump’s Cabinet, With a Prod, Extols the ‘Blessing’ of Serving Him this morning. My stomach is literally churning with disgust that (a) he needs a course of flattery before getting down to the business of leading the country and (b) that his administration is willing to give it to him.
