11 p.m. wanting to puke

Had to turn it off, hours ago. I put on the (Dixie) Chicks and then watched another episode of The Queen’s Gambit. I turned it off when Mitch and Lindsay won and then the QAnon woman. Unbearable. Unfuckingbearable. How is it possible? I want to throw up. 

So, to bed, to read for hours perhaps, to try to release the tension in my shoulders and stomach and heart.

Profound sadness. People are so fucking much more stupid than is comprehensible.
