Blerds, Nerds, and Uncivil War

Blerds, Nerds, and Uncivil War

So first things first. Yes I’m aware I said Monday, and today is Tuesday. And going into Monday I expected to give you what I said I would. But life got in the way. Social friends know I have been dealing with Bell’s Palsy recently, and that took a turn over the weekend into Monday. There are going to have to be even more changes than originally thought. One of the main ones, well, I’ll save that for who needs to know. Anyway. I spent the day getting through that with time to myself, a lot of prayer, and a Read more »

THE Anniversary: What Dreams May Come?

THE Anniversary: What Dreams May Come?

Our 5th Anniversary You may have noticed I was not in for last week. We aren’t doing the old number quite yet so I’m certain that far fewer of you know how this usually works. The week of the anniversary for Words Don’t Do It Justice I go away. Usually for planning, but also because life tends to get in the way and I write the post ahead of time to get ready for the day of. This year was a bit different. March 4th was a weekend. And I told you no more weekends. So I took off to Read more »

And now…A new hour begins

And now…A new hour begins

Your brain is feeding you correct information, I assure you. That weird feeling in the back of your mind that says this can’t be happening is, in fact, incorrect. You are here, reading these words. And as it were, so am I. I’ll let that sink in for a moment. You deserve it. Crazy how life goes. For 3 years my Monday schedule included frantically editing and prepping the piece I wrote over the course of the last week. And then getting it shared all over my various social media sites. Stressing over content. Straight up harassing my writers until Read more »

The Letter Series: Dear Allies

The Letter Series: Dear Allies

I am not an Ally. I am an asshole. Over the years, I’ve come to embrace that last statement. Alternatively, I never would have thought I’d be able to make that first statement knowing what it implies. In times like these, I’m reminded of the secret societies and why they were originally created: because the ideas held by their constituents were often taboo, unpopular, and unwelcome in polite society. Secret societies were like safe places for the world’s best, brightest, most innovative thinkers. I think its time for a new one. Assholes like me need a Secret Society where the determination Read more »

RSI: Redefining Beauty

RSI: Redefining Beauty

Beauty. Cuteness. Attractive. Adorable… A young man called me beautiful last night. Part of me wanted to smile and say thank you shyly. Instead I said “I know, and thank you for noticing!”… Still with a smile, but not the kind that usually goes with feigned humility or embarrassment. I accepted his compliment. Once I did, the voices in my head took over, telling me that he probably didn’t really mean it. I told me that I’m only pretty to a very select few kinds of people, let alone beautiful. I told me that I certainly shouldn’t have been so forward about accepting that compliment. Luckily, Read more »

And now we come to…the end of an era

And now we come to…the end of an era

Today, oddly enough was supposed to be the pay off FINALLY for a number of posts about relationships that I thought might be better than all my previous ruthless on relationships post. And indeed I’ll get to that later.   Instead, Today is a day I bring us to a place I knew could happen, but was happy every time it didn’t. Today we end the hour for the last time. What do I mean? Today is the beginning of a goodbye party. For this blog. Oh it will continue to exist, but a transition is afoot. And so with Read more »

Secret Truth of the Universe: Racist Atheists

Secret Truth of the Universe: Racist Atheists

Where am I? You’re on Words Don’t Do It Justice… How did I get here? Man, who knows. Sometimes you surprise even me. Where is everybody? Again, you tell me. You’ve been gone a very long time… Yes. Too long.  Now what do we say to the people who say you’ve quit? “Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated.” And what do we say to Reign as she goes on vacation? “HOLD THE DOOR!”   So, Reign is taking a break for a couple weeks after holding things together while I dealt with what I can only call the Read more »
