Good morning. If it is indeed still morning when you read this. If not, please change that to whatever time of day would be appropriate. Unless of course you never read this, in which case let's assume that I am greeting you anyway, and that that greeting is taking place in the morning.

I'm working hard on not working on my entry. I have a glimmer of an idea, but my first attempts have produced messes, so I'm letting it percolate in favor of chores.

*nods* This. So hard.

I also like to percolate while taking a long walk.

Good luck, G! Hope you can pour a hot cup of joe soon!

I percolate by taking The Boyz for a long walk :)

I've got an idea but pulling it off is a whole other story.

Same here! Started writing a story draft, we will see if my idea gels.

I'm in a similar boat. The idea is there, but the words are being slow in arriving.

Fortunately, I had some down time at work and was able to complete my entry! Huzzah! Best of luck with yours! <3

I have an idea...but the nuts and bolts of it are still scattered across the workroom floor. This may be one I need to just START writing and piece it together as I go.

I'm going to work today. I know I am supposed to stay home to prove a point, and trust me, I know the point needs to be made, but I am a public servant.

There are kids who need me, I have a job to do...it seems selfish to me to stay home when it would uncomfortably impact my coworkers and patrons. Again, I know, that's the point, to show how necessary women are, and in my library system of 125 employees, if all the female employees stayed out today, there would be, seriously, 14 people coming to work. And they are primarily IT and facilities maintenance who work at Headquarters, not in the branches, so...our patrons would be up the creek.

I can't do that to them, even to prove a point. They aren't the ones who need to be reminded of the importance of women. They thank us every day!

In other news, I started doing my taxes, realized I don't have all my husband's documents and he is out of town, and had to give up about halfway in. Damn! I was hoping to mark that off my to-do list early!

I know if no woman in my RL who is participating in this exactly for the reasons you said. There's also the no-work-no-pay thing too.

I had my taxes done least week. I owe the state a whopping $1, lol.

Well done!

We have been really lucky so far to get refunds, but we still have two kiddos at home that help with credits. We do the taxes each spring, get the refund and then use the refund money to pay for their summer camp each year...then get a childcare credit the next year that we roll back into summer camp...and on and on, lol!

Same here as regards work. Public servant / state worker job. Plus, responsibility knows no gender. ❤

"Responsibility know no gender." I like that!

I was really afraid I was going to make my comment and get blasted for being anti-feminist. I'm so pro-female my ovaries ache when I listen to Trump or Conway, but there are different ways to express feminism, lol!

True dat! I don't see how NOT working expresses feminism any more than not voting would! Sigh.

I didn't even realize until I got to work that today was protest day. My desire to get paid for a full 40-hour week trumps (ha!) my desire to make a grand, ultimately meaningless gesture, so I stayed put. Also, I was the only one in my department until noon so I kind of had to be here.

I am mildly jealous of all the folks who have ideas but no words. The only idea I've had is smurf fanfiction.

Sadly, I don't remember much except everything being "smurfy" and I'm not sure I I'm up to the research. Or maybe it would be a wonderful distraction.

Maybe Smurf-based crack? It's hard to go wrong mocking something. ;)
