Warming: Contains Profanity 
You used to be able to enjoy a drink out. Not any more. No bartenders know what they are doing. They used to go to bartending school. No cocktail waitresses know what they're doing. It wasn't that hard. No regular waitresses or waiters know what they are doing. They used to have bus people, and that helped.

Talking out of my ass, spending out of my class

Lately I've posted a number of things on Twitter where I didn't look at what I was posting about. I posted something defending one of Kanye West's temper tantrums, probably the one where he asked Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg for a billion dollars. Somehow, I had the impression that it was something more serious. I rebuked the other posters saying that...

stagnation, turmeric side-effects and 2 more...
Curry Powder is the New Miracle Supplement Curry powder taken in a certain way can be anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer and help break down dietary fats and oils. It can aid coordination and task performance, including driving and martial arts. I discovered this when I tried to take turmeric but it had side effects for me. I realized that most curry powders have turmeric in addition to other spices....

Dealt with misogynist haters on Twitter over my response to an Onion post. Blocking idiots. One of the haters was a "feminist" female. The Onion has taken a turn for the worse in regards to women-hating. Before that I was blocked for the first time that I know of on Twitter, by a tea blogger. At first he was unreasonable about a photo he used that...

microcephaly, zika virus
Docs say chemicals cause microcephaly, not Zika According to the WHO, of the 404 confirmed cases of microcephaly in Brazil, only 17 tested positive for Zika virus. Doctors in Brazil and Argentina point to pesticides as causing microcephaly. They say it is not the Zika virus, which was first discovered in 1947. Extracted from an article in GM Watch News by Claire Robinson:

The healthier a business is, the more crap they give you

Went to the White Man's Food Maze. I normally avoid the vortex that is their coffee bar, but I thought I could get hot water to make the tea I brought from home. Their hot water had black debris in it, maybe coffee grounds from not washing the container? I tried to tell the snotty Asian woman that works there. I was right in front of her and she speaks En...

I proceed

-- by Luminosity  
I proceed. I am led by impulse. I am led by emotions. Sometimes I am led by a craving for baked goods. I have been led by avoidance. Lately I am led by better judgment, by considered opinion, or by God.  I fly crooked and circle back. I pull backwards. Sometimes I attack. I feel feelings or I feel the lack. I try to includ...

I was up with, I was up with the crack of 9:30. I went out to do something. Dealt with some stuff. Someone said something inflammatory. I told them off. Basically the rest of it went pretty well. I remained calm, mostly and present. After that I went to a nearby farmers' market. I got some stuff there. I should have a bumper sticker on my ass that says I...

How to Write

I'm a published writer under my other name. People tell me I'm good. I'm sharing what I know. Today's chapter: Writing Dialog Transcribing taped interviews I did as a journalist helped me to see how people really talk. People speak in broken sentences. They interrupt each other. They do not explain their content. Things are understood from co...
