Breaking my silence, but not enough

Hello, there !  Renxkyoko Iglesias here.

 

I haven’t done any blog reading ….. well, maybe 10 blogs a day this week, and these last 2 days, none at all……, and Cassie, MBBBF,  can attest to this. I haven’t been feeling well these last few days that even my boss had to let me go home  ( bad timing,  there was no one to take my shift so my boss had to do my work ) .  My cough sounded terrible , , my eyes were watery, my joints hurt, and though I had a slight fever, my hands and feet were icy cold. Weird.   Last Wednesday, I was called for a jury duty. I went despite being sick, and hoped the judge wouldn’t select me. I  usually don’t get selected because of my father’s job.  He works with law enforcement, and no, he’s not a cop nor a warden, ^_^”.  We get asked about this stuff,  so, I was sure  the defendant’s attorneys would eliminate me, assuming wrongly  there was  going to be some bias against his client.  Sure enough, I was sent home, thank goodness.  This is not always the case though , because my sister was selected  to be a juror despite the personal info.  Why was she selected ?  Well,  99 % of the people who were asked by the judge  gave the wrong answer. My sister was the only one who got it right. Okay, so the judge asked each potential juror  whether the defendant present in this court  was guilty or not.  Everyone answered they didn’t know……. my sister was the only who said the defendant was innocent.  And folks, that’s how it should be… innocent until proven guilty .

 

Another thing……. US Attorney General  Jeff Sessions just scrapped  the commission established by the Department of Justice and  the National Institute of Science and Technology  to engage independent forensic experts to improve the reliability and authenticity of forensic evidences .  Sessions scrapped this… these “meddling  scientists “, he said.  He said he would instead just get an in-house adviser.  Folks, I have a college degree in Forensics Biology, specializing in DNA Analysis,  and even if I know that Forensics analysis  is the most reliable evidence by far,  this cannot be attained with garbage evidence .  ( contaminated , etc. ) We have to be sure that the person we are sending to the gallows is  truly guilty.  Now, don’t ask me if I’m pro- death penalty  or anti.

 

I haven’t made any political statements for quite a while.  I ‘m so overwhelmed by the almost daily  screw-ups coming from the White House….. oh,  pardon me, from Mar-a Lago…. that I ‘ve decided to zone everything out.  I mean, that guy spent 25 days of his first 100 days golfing on his   resorts and visiting his other properties. Meanwhile , taxpayers spend  $ 3 M each time he stays at Mar-aLago, not to mention the $$$$$$  the government spends to maintain his New York’s Trump Tower, because Melania lives there.  Add the $$$$$ we spend every time his sons go abroad on private business. (  Hey, first family is protected everywhere they go, right ? )

 

Of course, these are just small , shallow corruption issues.  What I should be more concerned about is the abolishment of  the Environmental  Protection Agency ( EPA ) , Department of  Education, the repeal/rejection of Affordable Health Care Act ,  defunding of all agencies that take care of the needs of  the people…. ( Meals on Wheels, PBS subsidies,  Sesame Street, the arts ).Meanwhile , that man  is so ready and eager to make tax cuts for the rich.

My Evil Thoughts…. just a random musing, short and sweet

Renxkyoko Iglesias here, folks.

 

I have been busy these past few weeks…..playing  video games……. and no, not Pokémon, or Flowers in Spring kind of game………what I am playing are  games where I can decapitate enemies to my heart’s content and scream,  Die, b*tches !   ( You can read my thoughts on video games that I currently play HERE, if you’re interested.  This is my anime/manga/video games blogsite  )

 

Not only am I acting upon my  inner aggression  in a virtual reality by playing  a heroine trying to save the world from utter destruction,  I am also   having some Susan Sarandon moments lately.  Yes, I’m looking at you, Beattyvile, Kentucky. Ask me, do I care ?  You will not get any  from me, not an iota of sympathy. ….. and I suspect, not even from Jesus.

 

John  Pavlovitz’s  piece  , A Message to the Heartbroken, prompted me to write down my thoughts  at the moment..  My own message is, please let me rage and hate in peace and quiet.  It’ll get better in time, I am sure of it.

 

This is all for now.

 

 

 

 

Awards acknowledgement and other stuff

Hi, there !   Renxkyoko Iglesias here !  ” waves ”

 

I’d like to apologize for my long-delayed acknowledgement of the awards I’d been given by  raistlin0903  (  Versatile Blogger Award ), cookandenjoyrecipes ( Blog-aholic  Award ),  lifewithtranquility ( Blogger  Recognition Award ) and livepulchritudinously ( Blogger Recognition Award ).  There are two more, but I assume they are for my anime/manga/video game website.  The only one who has a question for me is @livepulchritudinously.  The question is , give a brief story of how your blog started.

 

Well, in high school… my fellow manga fans met at a manga forum……  our posts later morphed into personal and off-topic , like , ” Guess what, guys, I just bought a new pair of boots.” So, we decided to do our thing on LiveJournal.  Then , ( though  I’m not sure about this  ) WordPress took over LiveJournal and all our stuff were transferred, lock, stock and barrel, to WordPress.  At first, it was just us commenting on each other’s blog. Then , for the first time,  one person posted a comment on my blog, and I was really surprised.  ”  Who is this guy and why is he here ? ”  Then a few more comments from other readers  followed and we didn’t like it, so we just ignored the commenters . The situation was like that for almost a year, LOL.

 

That’s the story. Hey, we were just a bunch of idiots who didn’t know any better.  To date, I’m the sole survivor.  One had gone to medical school, the other got married,  one went to China to teach English, and couldn’t post from there….. the rest I don’t know. They deleted their blogsites.  Ironically, what got me interested  were the comments. I started responding to them, and for the first time , read their blogs.   The rest is history.

Politics…….  Nasties are piling up, one on top of another.  I’m so overwhelmed I’ve become catatonic.

Job -hunting Update

Renxkyoko Iglesias  here. Hi !

I didn’t watch the second debate.  While watching the first debate,  I did a juvenile thing …. I threw potato chips at the TV, not to mention  my intestines almost exploded.  Eh.  I don’t need that kind of aggravation in my life.

Hillary

 

So, okay, some of my readers have been asking me about  my job hunting.  Thank you very much for asking.  I did say on my previous post my dream job was  to be a forensics  analyst….. after all,  that’s  one of my majors (  I graduated with 2 majors, Cell and Molecular Biology , Minor in Chemistry, and Forensics Biology. )  I applied as Criminalist 1  two months ago,  took a test,…… unfortunately, it was  an ” experience ” test with questions like ” Have you ever been called as a DNA expert at a court trial ? ”  What the heck !  Of course I haven’t.  So, I didn’t get the job. But I have a question……   I got a Rank 4 and they said  they took in those that got Ranks 1 , 2 and 3 (  with experience , all of them ) but I’d have first priority  if and   when a position opens within the next 2 years.  I told my police officer friend about it….. and she said, ” Congratulations , girl, Rank 4 is  great news.  Just be patient. ”   My question is,  what does getting a Rank 4 really mean  ?  I want to be optimistic . That’s my dream job, after all.

 

Good thing I have another  degree to fall back on.  I actually got so many responses to my applications, but 90% of them are from out of my city……..  LA,  Nevada, San Francisco, Berkeley, etc.  Oh, wait, I even applied  at NSA ( National Security Agency , ha ha ha )  I answered NO to all the questions, except the one on being bi-lingual.  Then the questions got more detailed. Well, never mind. Hey, that’s NSA , okay ? *   zips mouth *

 

I got 2  responses from 2 companies   that are  located in my city….  one from Diagnostics and one from a  dairy company. At Diagnostics, I  didn’t get the job because , believe it or not, I WAS OVERQUALIFIED  in  the position  that I applied for.  That’s one  heck of a reason for rejecting me.

 

Well, good news! ! !  I got the job  at a dairy company.  I am now working  at their   Quality Control department,  checking out for contaminants, microbes….  in other words, the quality of the finished products, duh.   The dairy company manufactures milk, of course, and  ice cream, novelty ice cream products,  cheese,  cream cheese, gosh,even eggnog, and any product that comes from milk. Our milk comes from California cows,  and California cows are happy cows.

 

My work schedule is fluid…  sometimes it is from 12 PM to 8:30 PM….. or  8 PM to 4:30 AM  .  Another good thing about this job is , it’s a) unionized  b)   pay is good, very, very good    c)   it’s just an 11 to 12 minute drive from our house.

Irrelevant random photos because there should be photos, right ?   I love these ones that I took at Louvre Palace in Paris.  Bet you haven’t seen a photo of Venus de Milo’s  butt.

We’re in a Freakin’ Twilight Zone

Renxkyoko Iglesias here, Hello !

I am sure  some of you have seen and watched this video that I’ve posted here. Normally, I wouldn’t post such  a video, because in the first place, I myself do not know what to make of this, but this is an interesting and abnormal  time,  so …….

Anyway,  do watch if you haven’t yet.  It’s Bill  Maher’s  outrageous  political pitch for  THE NOTORIOUS  H.R.C.  Warning:  mind the graphic and colorful language.  My folks and I cringed , but it did bring the Iglesias  household down, on the floor, laughing our ass*s  off.

 

 

Maher’s exposition sounds bad,  but I find it hilarious.  Sometimes, the way to fight  out- of- this- world accusations  is to own it.  (  Filipinos used to be called  Flips here in the US. So, Filipinos  fought  it by calling themselves Flips….. the racist name calling  stopped.  )  Sweet Grandma Hillary……  Trump, the lying, con man  Tweeter warrior  has nothing on you.

By the way, Tim Kaine, her VP, did  missionary  work with the Jesuits and stayed in Latin America for 2 years, and that’s where he learned to speak fluent Spanish…… he was also a civil rights lawyer for 17 years.  So, yeah, Hillary pals around with Lucifer.

This is all for now.  Thank you for reading.
