OF BOOKSHELVES AND RECORD CABINETS

I'm a published poet and short story author where music and books were the load bearing walls of my childhood. This led to a love of movies, anything from Bogart to Clooney. My heros are Margaret Atwood, Hugh Laurie, and The Beatles. I was lucky enough to have met Ms. Atwood, taught by Thomas Lux, and to have heard Drake Bell play his own music and cover The Beatles three times. My name is Veronica. Let's get passionate.

..omg…. there’s an actual argument ensuing on my FB about the reunion. Old friend said, “let’s tailgate before the game, BYOB.” Means :Bring Your Own Beer…riiight??? So another friend, organizing this whole thing and NOT wanting to get in trouble, and I messaged about it, rolling our eyes…on school grounds?! One friend commented to him,we’re not allowed to drink on school grounds. Christ we’re pushing 50 here, we scan assume we’re all smarter than that…I hope. He commented back, snarkly, ‘it means bring your other brother, take it however you want.’  

That, and classmates are posting pics of their Porches and Cadillacs, people are putting on airs already! I really thought this game was a safe bet. Me? I’m showing up in my dusty 9 year old SUV with my Obama sticker :/ (conservative state, bad times for POTUS) and… my bi polar kid. On top of that, yeah, there’s more, they may charge us….ASK FOR MONEY FROM THE CLASS OF ‘84~FIRST TO GO THROUGH THAT SCHOOL ALL FOUR YEARS…to take a tour. Then we’ll be charged  again to get into the game. 

By the time I’m done with admissions and concessions for three boys, I will have spent more than I did to get a tkt/m&g to the Robert Plant concert.

But tee~hee…I’ve found out three other people are skipping the dinner on Sat. to see Mr. Plant and The Sensational Space Shifters, too. I’d rather pay a boatload for ONE drink at The Fillmore, and my soul for a program and a hand shake and…THAT genuine, unique smile, then put up with 30 year old bullshit about how wonderful and rich and beautiful and thin and my kid is better than your kid crap.

That’s all. Thanks for listening. Percy, see you Saturday, baby.

Tomorrow is October…bring it on!!!!

Alright guys, this shit got me heated. 
So today as I was getting ready for school, I get a call from my youngest sister’s elementary school clinic. My sister gets on the phone and tells me she is sitting out of class because her skirt is too short. “You need to bring me one that goes down to my knees, they said,” is what she told me.
Quick recap: My sister is eleven years old, in fifth grade, and has some mental and physical disabilities. She’s the tallest girl in her class. Also, the dress code states her skirt must be down to her fingertips, not her knees.
When I get there, I insisted I see her instead of just dropping her stuff off. I was not suprised to find her with a skirt obviously within the rules of the dress code. I asked her what class she was missing and she told me math. She’d been sitting out for atleast twenty or thirty minutes while she waited for me to come.
She only learns things at about a third of the pace as everyone else in her class. Even missing this short amount of time means missing a lot of information for her. Just to recap: she has to sit out of class because of the length of her skirt. She can’t even just sit in her classroom while she waits for me, because apparently that’s too distracting. To whom, you ask? I can’t really tell you. Are ten year old boys, fifth grade boys already old enough to be sexualizing her to the point that they were going so insane with horniness that they had to whisk her away until she could put on something ‘decent’. 
So not only are the sexualizing a fifth grader, they are giving her different rules for the dress code based on her height and making her miss valuable class time. This bullshit needs to stop. Eleven goddamn years old and she’s already being taught her body isn’t her own anymore, that she’s being too provocative if she wears a skirt to the same standard as all the other short, skinny girls in her class just because she looks older.
As a P.S., I would like to point out that she is already bullied because of her disabilities. Pulling her out of class and making her change is even more of an embarrassment, and only leads to more teasing. 

please signal boost this.

Me. This morning, well, at noon, because my husband and oldest son were on a campout Fri. and Sat. night, and I learned that my youngest stays up until 12:30-1:00 am….and wanted me to sit with him….not to mention the long days in between.

Robert Plant on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon on September 26, 2014.

And people are wondering why I want to go to the Robert Plant concert….of course I could skip it and watch my old classmates try to outdo each other and get drunk at the dinner (happens every 10 years) but it seems there will be plenty of drinking in the old dirt parking lot and at a bar after the game the night before…soooo… 

NO FUCKIN’ WAY. SEE YOU SAT. PERCY ;)!
