Yay ♫ on Solstice Day!

  2:52pm P-90:

Let’s all congratulate our own DJ Sheila B, who was flashed on the New York City Subway this week! With this accomplishment, our Beloved Sheila has now completed the final stage of initiation both as a US citizen and as an Adopted Native New Yorker! It’s all 100% legit and certified Kosher now!
“Waddya think,” Sheila will probably retort, “like I’ve never been flashed before?” But in keeping with the Yuletide spirit, let us all raise a cup of good cheer!

Oh and more recently an elderly man asked for help. He looked like someone's sweet grandpa. He said the uneven sidewalk was hard to navigate and needed help. So I help him walk. We get half a block to his building and he says Will you touch me? I said Excuse me? And he opened his coat to show his opened fly. I was horrified. You know? I thought I was too old and wise to have this stuff happen.

Walking through an arboretum in Houston in shorts listening to these wonderful XMAS songs. It is slightly disconcerting but there’s no global warming and Francoise Hardy did mention a beach. Happy Holidays everyone.

Queems, it was simply because I didn't know what to do. Call 911? Scream? Run? I froze which is so unlike me.

van der Kolk's The Body Keeps the Score goes into this sort of emotional triggering, but it's a HUGELY difficult read. Every content warning for abuse applies. But it's an excellent book and worth the read, even if, as I'm doing, in slowly paced chunks.

I've had unintentional female flashers. On flights it's shocking how many passengers don't wear knickers with skirts.

In the 60's Spain had another Rosalia. In fact her EP No importa nada (1967) is my favorite EP by a Spanish female singer.

ifeelfatnsassy—Oooohh...Double A side!
  3:37pm P-90:

Maybe a big part of the freaky-ness of these things is that they’re a complete surprise, you have no idea it’s about to happen. If you left the house knowing “today’s the day a creepy thing’s gonna happen” it might be just as unpleasant, but not quite so paralyzing. I think these perpetrators know that’s how they’re really taking advantage of you: not just by forcing their inappropriate displays on you, but doing it out of the blue, with no warning...

Today is not only Solstice, but my 2 yr anniversary of moving to the Gulf side of Florida.
In 1975 I got flashed at a Denver bus stop in freezing weather. The dude was just wearing hiking boots and a rain poncho. I told him he had better be gone when the bus arrived and he skedaddled.

In the last 3 days. My ex of two decades who didn't want children is now having one. My apartment renovation is going to take longer than expected but I've been given notice to move from my rental which ugh I have so many books, records. Moving is hard esp on such short notice.

I'd love to think some flashers discover a moment too late there's an unexpected cop nearby, but probably doens't happen that way much. Maybe not healthy to have such violence in my thoughts and hopes, but I always hope that grabbers, gropers and jackass-aggressive kissers get knocked on their ass immediately by a knee, a hard no-nonsense push or a bystander's fist.

If you had to go to traffic court (like me), today was the day! 30 cases on the docket, only one case had a witness or ticket writer show up. 29 not guilties due to no eveidence.

My lonesome soul
Always alone
Without anyone understanding your suffering,
Your horrible suffering

Imitating an existence that's always full
Of joy and pleasure
Of joy and pleasure

If I were to find a soul like mine,
how many secret things would I tell it?
A soul that looks at me, without saying a thing
It would tell me something with only a look

A soul that would get me drunk with a slow breath
That, to kiss me, it would feel what I feel
And sometimes I ask myself what would happen
If I were to find a soul like mine

A soul that looks at me, without saying a thing
It would tell me something with only a look

A soul that would get me drunk with a slow breath
That, to kiss me, it would feel what I feel
And sometimes I ask myself what would happen
If I were to find a soul like mine

Got to see a nice heartwarming moment today. Stopped at Chipotle today on the way home from court. While I was waiting in line, a rather agitated person who had been panhandling in the intersection in front of the restaurant came in and started trying to butt in line, saying he was only going to get a drink. The cashier came out from behind the counter and asked him to wait at a table in the corner. I'm thinkn' "this is going to be trouble". When it was my turn to be rung up, she excused herself, went over to the dude and handed him a drink and a very large bag of food and wished him a merry Christmas.

Also people on the subway tend to play games that (like Candy Crush) that are just “put colorful blocks in order” games. The rules and mechanics might be slightly different, but the overall concept is the same.
