How a conspiracy theory gets it’s start. This one was premeditated in a chat room.
Maybe the groundhog got it wrong.
We had a little bit of snow before the new year, and a little bit more after.
There’s a snowflake in the weather ap for Friday. This is Very Different from shorts all year round.
Ellie and I have settled on our one little word for 2018.
This year will be about about enthusiasm, showing up with a joyful spirit, and cultivating an attitude of celebration. Yay.
I hope everyone’s Christmas was as merry, quiet, and low key as ours (unless you like excitement, then I hope the opposite for you). We had no company and traveled no where, so we stayed in pajamas all day and ate breakfast for all three meals: breakfast, brunch, and…wait for it…Yule Brinner!
I crack myself up. 😀
OK. So the next step is to be this motivated in the down ballot races so we never get another Roy Moore. R or D, we need to fill our seats with candidates that favor of basic human decency.
PS Thank you to everyone who made me a part of the 2% write-in vote. Maybe I’ll run for city council in a year or two when Ellie is out of elementary school.
I am so proud of you right now.
Don’t ever let anybody tell you your vote doesn’t count.
This is the official announcement of my write-in campaign for Alabama’s Senate Seat.
Write me in! I got 8 votes against Jo Bonner one of those times he was running unopposed.
Y’all, I got an A in civics, memorized the Bill of Rights in 6th grade, have a general understanding of the Constitution, and can pass a criminal background check. So I’m already way more qualified than Roy Moore and much more interested in funding education.
I’m also registered as an Independent*. So no worries about that pesky ‘D’ by my name, I haven’t got one!
On December 12, Choose Kindness. Write in Emily Ivey for Senate.
*I’ve been thinking about it and it’s possible I’m just not registered with either state-recognised party. I registered to vote in Alabama when we moved here 15ish years ago and that’s a long time to remember if you got to check the box you wanted. Either way, I don’t have a ‘D’ so no worries.
I’m Emily Ivey and I approved this message.
