On the short list of things I want to do when retirement starts rolling in (fingers crossed…by the end of the year)….

Yep.  I am 53 years old young and I want to re-straighten my teeth while I have teeth still in my head. 

Go ahead and call me vain, but I miss grinning at people.  I wish I could be okay with my overbite being where it was before I wore braces the first time.  I’m not.

This morning, while I waited for the coffee to brew, I contemplated how incredibly “silly” it is for me to want to go through this process, and at my age.  So, I decided then that prior to being cremated when I croak, die, kick the bucket, stick my fork in the wall…… I want a viewing for friends and family.

I want the mortician to do whatever it is they do for a corpse, but only with me smiling.

I believe the folks who know and love me will totally understand and we shall laugh together.

"Women have always been healers. They were the unlicensed doctors and anatomists of Western history. They were abortionists, nurses, and counselors. They were pharmacists, cultivating healing herbs and exchanging secrets of their uses. They were midwives, travelling from home to home and village to village. For centuries women were doctors without degrees, barred from books and lectures, learning from each other, and passing on experience from neighbor to neighbor and mother to daughter. They were called “wise women” by the people, witches or charlatans by the authorities. Medicine is part of our heritage as women, our history, our birthright."

Updates

I’ve weaned myself off my antidepressants.  They are good for me up to a point and then zombie life sets it.

So, they had to go. 

Today, I went to the gym and it was good….. until I tried to use the exercise ball.  I suspect that if the gym has an end of year party, where they show a blooper reel from the security feeds,………. I will be on it.

Today is Copernicus’s 541th birthday. You may remember Copernicus as the man who said “Hey, what if the Earth went around the sun?” To which the Catholic Church replied “Hey, what if we set you on fire?”

William Bratton: Investigate Ryo Oyamada's Death

Ryo Oyamada, a 24 year old student from Japan, was struck and killed by an NYPD vehicle in a hit & run.  Witnesses say the police car had no lights or sirens on and was going over 70 mph.  The released footage by NYPD was proven to be heavily altered in a cover-up, showing “lights” on the vehicle, when compared to footage from the NY Housing Authority on the same street with the same timestamp. 

On a personal note: I know that this will probably not be shared or reblogged very much, because Asians are not very prominent in American culture.  I understand this, because Asians (like me) are partially at fault for being so passive.  But I am begging you to please consider signing this petition out of human decency.  Ryo was just a student walking home, then struck by a nearly silent police cruiser going at excess speed, and the NYPD covered it up. 

Here is the side-by-side comparison of the released video footage, including updates from the case.  *Edit*  This article contains a link to a graphic video moments after the crash, showing the body of Ryo Oyamada and NY citizens yelling at the police.  Please advise, it is highly disturbing. 

And the following is an excerpt from the petition, which as of now only has 286 signatures.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOST

Series finale of True Blood in an hour. I  have a solid plan for getting through it:

1. Preparation is key:

2. Stay occupied during:

3. Double up as it progresses:

4. Cushion yourself for the after-effects:

5. Stay close to the toilet (especially if the ending is as heinous as we are anticipating. I fear it might be needed.). And have a friend nearby for moral support:

Let’s survive this together!

My series of paintings done for the Doctor Who comics series! (Well, the first three, at least… wink wink.) They are the covers of the #1 issues for each respective Doctor - Tenth, Eleventh, and Twelfth. It’s the first time I’ve released the artwork without the titles and whatnot - this was a MAJOR project for me this year, started all the way back in 2013 - I’m proud and honored to be so deeply involved with an official project like this. Here’s to more covers and Doctor Who in the future!
