Changed my default userpic; it's now an animated scroll of the closing paragraph of Keith Olbermann's Special Comment the night Gabby Giffords was shot. It's an important reminder, to myself and hopefully to others.

Keith no longer holds quite the same space in my fangirl's heart that he once did. [personal profile] gridlore stopped following him before Countdown went off the air for the final time, noting that it had become the liberal equivalent of all of the conservative echo-chamber shows he railed against so often, and I ultimately had no choice but to acknowledge the truth in that statement. I've used the #KOdependent hashtag on Twitter once or twice since then, and was only half-joking about it. But in the wake of this week's results, Doug is appreciating the need for a liberal firebrand (or dick-punching arsonist, if you prefer) once more.

In other news, Facebook just scared the bejesus out of me. Somebody flipped the wrong switch somewhere, apparently, and they put memorial banners on everyone's profile. I discovered this the hard way by going out to my sister-in-law's profile.

My transgender sister-in-law who just started hormone therapy earlier this summer, and who has been posting about whether she's going to rush the process along to make sure she still can, or whether she's just going to go back in the damn closet.

I've already heard about one suicide brought on by the election (and not one of the unconfirmed reports, either). The possibility that C might join their number was entirely too real, and I did not need that.

And how are YOU doing?
