Mmm, lovely. Light froth rising in the matcha. The bamboo whisk really is an improvement over a fork and even a metal whisk. Who was I to argue with tradition for so long?
“Shut the fuck up!”
Ah, nothing like the dulcet tones of neighborly love whilst basking in the warm glow of early morning light.
“I’m trying to sleep, douchefucker!”
“Fuck you! I’m trying to make breakfast!”
Several of our intrepid heroes convene in the hallway. Sipping my matcha, I glance at the clock. 5:38 a.m. I close my eyes, inhale, feel a small smile form, and exhale. What luck that I’m already up and mindfully calibrated for the day.
“For fuck’s sake!”
“I don’t know why it’s going off!”
“Do something, fuck! Take action!”
Isn’t this good advice for life? When something is happening that you can’t tolerate, or…
Hello, everyone! No, you’re not confused — this is not Wednesday. However, my Saturday post this week looks a lot like Jazz Age Wednesdays. Rob Goldstein and I have been having so much fun with the diesel-punk series, Hullaba Lulu, that it’s hard to believe the first chapter premiered March 21st. So I thought I’d use my weekend post to write a chapter that’s sort of a review.
I’m using one item from the next set of “three things” that Rob sent to drive the story. So I’ll call this Chapter 9.1. My quirky image above has some hints about what’s to come in the future. That said…
… All aboard!

The engine gave a steady pulse that seemed to underlie everything. It reminded…
Distressed and bewildered by her behavior, he blamed Donald Trump, saying,” Trump is triggering people with mental illnesses” and I agreed.
“I generally believe he thinks black people are dangerous and Mexicans are rapists,” Arnold said. “He believes that. As he perpetuates that fear to America, watch out Mueller is lying; he is after me. And so, Americans are sitting home like Roseanne and her fans, are like, oh my God, what is happening out there? And they get anxiety.” Tom Arnold
In 1991, Roseanne Barr came out as an incest survivor with DID.
I knew she was telling the truth when I read this:
“It’s like living in a maze. It’s like that old woman who keeps adding on to her house … But the parts don’t get along and some of them have some real strange ideas about how to defend ” ABC News
When Roseanne Barr refers to her alternates as having ‘strange ways to defend’, she is referring to protector alternates and gatekeeper alternates.
Protector Alternates focus on perceived threats, and often find dependence, emotional needs and close relationships (attachment) threatening.
Gatekeeper Alternates control which alters take control of the body, and when.
Pathological Narcissists are lethal to people with DID; I’m talking about dishonest and psychologically abusive men and women who invade our lives with chaos and lies and expect us to love them for it.
Abusers use our trust to inflict damage on us and never apologize for it.
Abusers don’t want friends or lovers; they want hostages.
People with DID share certain primary symptoms but each of us forms a
unique system of alternates.
I have two protectors but one of them is also a gatekeeper.
When I’m not on the Internet, I am someone named Matthew.
Matthew is a devout Catholic who has faith in human nature.
Matthew thinks pathological narcissism is an illness.
Please note: This post is not a defense of Roseann Barr’s behavior or comments. Mental illness is not an excuse for bad behavior unless a patient is genuinely out of control and in need of emergency services.
