the “invisible enemy” exacted by the very visible

I #stayedthefuckhome today from carrying so much tension and being utterly exhausted and wanting to eat everything, but apparently the governor of our state will be issuing a “stay at home order” this afternoon barring all movement but for those who are deemed as “essential employees”. Everyone who has to work is essential to my mind, and theirs I’m sure too when bills are due, but what do I know — I’m merely one of them in title to be dumped on and do all the thinking for those whose entire career is based on just that and to do the you know lawyering and if not creating then shaping these increasingly idiotic measures we are being subjected to.

Has everyone lost their fucking mind? It really seems like that as every hour melts away. There is reportedly one death in my state now, out of 504 confirmed cases, with nearly 10,500 tests administered, and soon we will be directed to stay home (till –?). Absolutely insane, everyone has turned into a blithering idiot I swear. No one ordered to stay home while they try to clean up everyday abhorrent jail conditions, to look for children and young women who go missing every day, to wrest abused women from their abusers, to come together to provide shelter for the homeless, to pool resources to feed everyone going hungry tonight — unbelievable truly. What a waste of time and effort, and that’s just taking everything at face value.

take my life, please!

You know that when the fascist state’s many nodes of power start telling you that they are concerned about your and the general public’s health something’s up. Synchrony Bank sent me an email about their precautions and three emails later, I found out they increased my credit limit. Hah!

Everything indeed is very surreal. There have been countless iterations of bad-ass-ed-ly facing the “zombie apocalypse” and creatively scavenging in a dystopian hellscape at some vague future date in the media. Each of these contains some amount of truth that requires, to my mind, some creative reading to understand this current heist. But then you hit the grocery after your shift, and you find that the only sort of milk sold out is organic and while the general aisle of canned goods is gutted, many of the same products are well-stocked in the “international” and Kosher aisle. There are some very interesting patterns to parse here in my humble opinion.

threat level: ill-informed and annoying

So you went to work today, did you? You thought it was important to get a few things to make some woo woo exotic dish did you? Oh your kid needed diapers is it now? Your elderly father needed a few things rearranged? What a selfish asshole you are! #staythefuckhome damn it! That fresh air? Full of viruses, you clown. Oh, you think your measly paid time off is for you to enjoy even though you’re not sick? You want a vacation at some point in this decade? WTAF? You dick! You utter cunt! If someone DIES it will be your fault, though this argument makes no fucking sense to the Experts we are supposed to listen to, ONLY. MY SISTER’S BOYFRIEND’S COUSIN SAID THE NEXT PERSON YOU CONTACT WILL DIE. Well, and the media that I was told smelled their farts. If someone doesn’t make you stay home, then I am going to yell enough through the internet until the national guard puts you there! You don’t like it? Your CDC nerds can’t handle this truth? Well fuck them too! My dead grandma’s cat sitter’s (once removed) stepsister’s cousin’s kickboxing coach’s nephew fucking died already! HOW DARE YOU leave the house. I can’t believe you, disrespecting his death like that. I was personally affected once I read the Facebook chain message that somehow came from my dead grandma’s memorial account. How fucking dare you fail to take this seriously. You’re out there PERFECTLY FUCKING HEALTHY, NOT SHUT THE FUCK UP INDOORS, ASSISTING THOSE WHO MAY BE AFFECTED BY A HEALTH CRISIS? God damn, the nerve on you. Cooperating, giving more in a trying time faced with a wall of propaganda from a ruling class that uh uh, only wants to see a GOOD DIE OFF. Welp, I guess this will be your fault. Because I’m a frightful idiot with memes and an endless understanding of 80s and 90s pop culture that can last for as long as I’m told to harass people who have to get shit done regardless of when we’re told to collectively kneel and die there.
