    Saturday Chores #1, March 8, 2014

    This was our very first counter-protest. It happened on a bit of a whim. There’s no big box hardware store very close to where we live, so Grayson and I were driving toward a suburb of Raleigh called Cary, which runs over with strip malls. I had gotten a gift card to Home Depot for my birthday, and we decided to get supplies for a garden box. We passed the clinic on the way.

    Grayson and I both grew up not too far away, and we’ve seen the clinic in question hundreds of times. But for some reason, on this morning in particular, the protestors got under our skin a little more than normal. Grayson suggested that we make a sign that said “Weird Hobby” and point at one of the protestors. We tried to buy poster board at Home Depot, but they don’t carry it. As we were leaving, I ripped a vinyl sale sign off of a display and took a Sharpie to it. We posted the results to Instagram and Facebook, and people flipped. 

    So, we vowed to continue our Saturday Chores.

    Saturday Chores #3, March 22, 2014

    Grayson and I woke up at 3:30 AM this Saturday to run our first 25K. A 25K is about 15.5 miles, or a half-marathon plus a few. We drove 30 minutes to Durham, a few towns over, and then took a bus to Chapel Hill. Then, we ran back to Durham. It was stupid. 

    The race was at the ass-crack of dawn, so we were able to make it back to Raleigh in time for Saturday Chores. My legs were shaking and I could barely hold the sign. I doubt the people who honked knew that I threw up as soon as we walked back to our car. 

    Honk, honk.

    This sign was all Grayson’s idea. I couldn’t stop laughing.

    Joan Jett’s jacket. Notice the pins.

    "keep abortion legal"

    "If she says no, it’s rape"

    "Pro fucking choice"

    This jacket is from about thirty years ago. These issues were big then. Thirty years later, these issues are still present. I was amazed to find these pins on the jacket, and realize this, because I would have thought, back then, if I was alive, that those issues would be solved by NOW.

    But they aren’t. Joan Jett knew what was up.

    Why can’t we take a minute and soak in her “bad reputation” and think about how in thirty years, abortion and rape culture STILL are huge issues.

  • So the program at my work is being discontinued. So instead of selling advertisements for churches, I am booking photograph sessions for the photographers. 

    Some guy was really personable and was generally talking to me. He seemed pretty cool. Until I asked him how many people he has in his family. His response was “7, 5 kids and then me and my life partner.” then he started laughing and was like “i’m sorry, i just made a gay joke. I guess that wasn’t appropriate, i mean me and my wife.”

    Like da fuck
