We're not Europe; in America, austerity means murder.

I got offered a job on a Friday but my reel wasn’t recent and hot enough and my system was too old.

I got offered a job the following Friday but I was flying to Arizona that day for my grandma’s funeral.

One fifty four in the afternoon, mid-March: the sun outside is perfect, I have the perfect mix of caffeine and glucose in my blood, and I savor a full minute of pleasure.

Now how to crawl across the dusk?

I got offered a job another Friday but the director’s brother picked up the gig instead.

I forgot to pray; I forgot to care. I forgot how urgent the split-second decisions are. They cascade over me because I don’t know how to make up my mind on the spot.

Bardoz. Transformation points. I’m flunking the bardoz.

America is the basement.  How to the impossible when the callous rich are bitching and moaning about offshore wind farms being an eyesore?

This is America and we are indolent and woke up too late. I’m so angry at Reagan and Bush, Sr. and american christianity for keeping me asleep for the first half of my life.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
