Well, we will find out soon if Net Neutrality gets repealed.
I suspect it will be.
I don’t know what that means to me or my blog or to us. I bet nothing good.
My promise to you: I will protest with my words, my money, and my time to keep net neutrality and an open internet.
I promise if this shit stain of a government interrupts our time together, I will find ways to reach you. Look for me, I will be there. I promise.
Please don’t give up. Let our government know we are not staying quiet. We reject their damaging policies. This is easy, follow the instructions and you can make your voice heard.
Thanks to John Oliver who made this easy.

Don’t forget you are not alone.
I will talk to you for as long as I can.
Hold on for a minute because we’re making a hard transition here.
In my head, I’m making that screeching sound we all made as kids when we tore ass around a corner in our imaginary cars.
I registered last week for the Erma Bombeck Writer’s workshop. You guys, there aren’t enough words to tell you how excited I am about this. I went two years ago and it felt like coming home. You know the No Rain video? Where the little bee girl is sad because where ever she goes she is different and odd and then she finds all the other bees and is happy? Well, that was me. I was the bee girl finding her tribe.
I am honored and excited to be chosen to be in the Erma Bombeck workshop humor anthology. I am in some impressive company. They spelled my name wrong. Haha. They took the “hell” out of my name.
I wrote an article for the essay contest. I like it. I’m happy with it and if it doesn’t win, I’ll post it here. I am also signing up for the lottery to perform stand up. I’ve been working on my four minutes for months now. Wish me luck.
Also, I am going to be on the New York Time’s podcast for Modern Love with a 13 word love story I submitted. They want me to record it for the podcast. I will post a link when it is available.
Don’t forget to follow the instructions to voice your opinion on Net Neutrality. You don’t have to stop there, call your elected officials and tell them what you think as well. Every day. Call every day. It only takes a few minutes.
I don’t want to lose you guys.
Stay strong, my friends. We are all in this together.
