Biden is going to win (Trump is a sore loser)

Image
That is all I have to say. Sick of this shit and sick of all the dumb, disgraceful Trumpanzees in this country. Slowly going back to work doing background and trying to get booked on Succession, my favorite show in a long time. I have very limited time off which I focus on shows that I am into.  First time I got booked on Succession, ended up sitting in front of my favorite character: Kendall Roy!  Oh and I have a 4.0 GPA at College. Can't wait to graduate next year. I'll be that unbearable Philosophy major that you'll despise picking an argument with. On the way home from a shoot (Still Life) -- brilliant make-up job to the pro who did it!! Then, it is law school where I will be even more unbearable to the bland lukewarm tap water drops out there.  Prosecuting older men behaving badly will be my specialty (white collar crime). Short and spicy catch-up. Finally, I visited the Statue of Liberty... Cheers. PP

Some thoughts on Singer's Animal Liberation essay, "All Animals are equal" (Ethical Theory class)

Singer’s essay outlines the role of suffering and the capacity to feel pain as the one thing that all beings have in common. But not only. Human beings’ necessity to avoid suffering is so fundamental that they have laws against causing suffering to their fellow creatures. If we can understand this very basic connection between humans and animals (our shared capacity for suffering), we should also understand that animals should not end up on our plate as food, in our wardrobe as an item of clothing, as entertainment or medical experiment tools. But let’s focus on animals as food for now. Singer makes a great list of arguments to illustrate the type of resistance humans put up in order to avoid changing their ways: they priorities to please their palates. He hits the nail on the head when he states that “in order to have meat on the table for a price we can afford, our society tolerates methods of meat production that confine sentient animals in cramped, unsuitable conditions for th

Just a few thoughts (about Justin Amash) before Impeachment Day

...I keep seeing that Justin Amash regularly slashing GOP egos on Twitter. And the answer is:"Yaaaaaasssss!!" I'd love for him to be one of the Impeachment Managers (Nancy, did you get my tweet? You have Schiff, Swallwell and you need an extra couple, right? ). Justin Amash is my new 'Trey Gowdy' of Congress. My husband:"He is very right wing. You would not like his policies. He wants to repeal Obamacare." Me:"Ok, but I don't want to marry him." I tried with Jim Hymes 'cos he is kind of cute in a nerdy Clark Kent sort of way, but he is a major wet fart (wet blanket in 'American English'). Justin Amash, however, slays at every opportunity. "Maladministration"! Who speakeths like this these days! *hearts* And look at that use of punctuation! Haawwt HA! Amoral! Swoon! And me, of course, fangirling like he's a member of Spandau Ballet (no, that does not work these days!) So forceful righ

Maths...is tough, but I passed with 85% (B+)

With an eye over to Christmas and one back to the rest of 2019, I cannot believe I got this far this year. Three semesters in college, accrued 36 credits in one year and I should soon find out if this autumn semester was also a festival of As. Summer was spent attending an intensive maths remedial class, four days a week, no credits...it was a slog. My husband could not believe I'd do it that way instead of taking a 4-credit maths class during the semester. No, I am strategic. It's all about keeping that GPA clean. So, final overall result for maths: B+ (85%). Maths is like going on a bike -- you either keep that brain supple constantly supplying it with cubic equations, variables or tracing those (-8, -2) cartesian coordinates or it will forget how to apply its logic. I used to think I was shit at maths. I was just out of practice. Starting the real path to a different future. I'm diving into Philosophy from spring. That's going to be my major. And either Theater A

Don't have much time to write extra stuff these days...

...College is keeping me busy. Just started an online course, 'Fundamentals Of Speech' for three credits this summer (only six weeks). 'Introduction to Theater' for an extra three credits also starts tomorrow as well. Will study those two until July 9th. Then, I will focus on the remedial maths' course (#ShitAtMaths) that will go on until Aug 23rd, after which I will have to take the Maths admission test again (LOL!). In the meantime, I finished my first semester with a 4.0 GPA - that's because the five classes I took - English Composition, Political Science, Sociology, Criminal Justice and Philosophy have nothing to do with Maths. Got an 'A' in each. Even Philosophy! Nearly fainted when I saw the final score! I sent a rambling email to the professor and didn't hear back. Sometimes (not often) I wonder how I must come across when I email these professors. I don't think I have ever fallen in love with a subject before, but Philosophy is my sof

Falling in love is fun!

Whether it is with your own spouse all over again or someone new, falling in love is fun. Love hearing stories of friends and whoever else will share theirs. Wait. I may be married, but I fell in love with Bernie Sanders in 2015. What can I say - I have a soft spot for strong, witty, passionate and dangerously benevolent Lefties with integrity (I'd add modern Marxists in there)...bullshit artists, there are many. Dweller in the White House, anyone? Cheers. Mrs PP

Joe Biden is uninspiring

That's all. No, wait. There's more: Yeah, I could not resist...I am not a fan of those who hold fund-raisers at Comcast VP's mansions when they know that Citizens United has not been a step forward for DEMOCRACY. Mrs PP
