  2. 1. REALLY out-loud? It would have been a few weeks back when with my college friends. The biggest laugh was at my own expense. But my husband makes me laugh too.
    2. There is no great hope at this point. I mean if there were truly ANYTHING anyone could nail BLOTUS on, I'd have a glimmer of hope. But he's greasy, slimy and can seemingly slither out of even attempting to overthrow a government.
    3. It depends. Husband, friends, one who is a psychiatrist, but not MY psychiatrist.
    4. Tried. Trying. Any news intake is extremely limited. But it can't help seeping in.
    5. Again - husband and friends. They're keeping me up and hopefully I'm helping in doing the same for them.

  3. When was the last time you laughed out loud? About five minutes ago when Tuxedo begged to be taken outside and Carlos obliged, but it was raining and as soon as the drops hit Tuxedo, oy, the look on his face. And I laughed.

    What brings you great hope? I heard a story of a drag queen reading to kids at a zoo, and how there were a few hundred protesters, but then more than twice as many counter-protestors. I equate that to voting; if we all show up to the polls and votes, we can get things started back to a more normal equitable future.

    Who do you talk with, or turn to in troubling times? Always Carlos.

    Have you tried turning down the negative feed in your life? I try to avoid it as much as possible; I steer clear of negative people and negative news.

    Do you have enough propps holding you up? We just had lunch yesterday with a good group of friends and that propped me up. Laughter, chats, good food, friends.

    2. What brings me great hope? With any luck, by the time the world totally slips into fascism and climate chaos, I should be dead.

    4. Turning down negative feed? Yes, if the news gets to be too much, I don't watch it for awhile. Other sources of negativity in my life have long since been eradicated.
    5. Enough props? Yes!
