restaurant employees

08/30/2019

Hello all, I know it’s been forever since I’ve last written.  Today, I went to one of my favorite restaurants and the waiter told me that if we leave a tip with a card, the owner takes the tip and that employees only receive tips if they are in cash. I felt so horrible, since […]

Automata …and hurdy gurdys

02/20/2018

I thought I needed to put in something whimsical.  I like mechanical things. and whimsy. and creativity. “I Feel, therefore I Am,” Paul Spooner “It’s an Uphill Battle,” Conquergood Creative “A Horse of a Different Color,” Conquergood Creative   … I got sidetracked into thinking about instruments.  which are always a fascination for me.  and […]

Dylan Moran: types of alcohol

05/16/2017

Ok, so I deleted my late night drunken I-hate-work-and-everything-is-shit rant from last night.  But I’ll replace it with this.  This guy gets it.

Back in My Day

05/03/2017

  I like the concept of this bit, speaks to me and my – I feel older while realizing I’m not that much older – sense.  I’ve been known to get on a couple “kids these days” soapboxes, and perhaps reminisce about a prior time – that was not that long ago.  Maybe things change […]

Games part II: creative evolving beasts

      on to the games: I haven’t played either of the following games, but they intrigue me.  I guess this is part two of my board game wishlist.  (part one here) Evolution: A board game where you try to create and maintain many species, can give them characteristics to help them survive, and […]

Game Renaissance

03/11/2017

I figured I’d try something a little different blog post-wise.  (I end up ranting about politics, but I originally thought of my blog as a space for any random rant that could pop through my head…)  Something uplifting is needed…at least for me in these times… So I’m a big fan of board games, some […]

“Fearless Girl”

03/10/2017

True story, there was this one time I… but that’s beside the point. “Statue of Girl Confronts Bull, Captivating Manhattanites and Social Media,” New York Times, (nytimes.com) “The Story of ‘The Fearless Girl,’ From the Women at McCann Who Made Her,” Adweek, (adweek.com) Change.org’s petition to make the statue permanent (although I don’t know if […]

good TV: save Timeless

02/28/2017

For me, it’s hard for me to find a good TV show that I am really into.  Though when I get hooked, I get really hooked.  I love Timeless.  It’s probably the only TV show I talk about right now.  What’s not to love?  It’s smart, it has funny moments, action, adventure, features a 3-person […]

and I think Milo is a bully and performance artist troll hiding behind a veil of political ideology but what do I know, I’m just a stupid evil sensitive snowflake crying liberal pussy sjw… come at me… “this guy has done things that has allowed you to fucking live”

Laura Jane Grace interview on Daily Show with Trevor Noah, here (comedycentral) ——————————————————————————————————————— A two-part post tonight.  I was watching various YouTube videos, videos on personal experiences with Aspbergers, among other things, and thought I’d share that.  and then I thought about Laura Jane Grace, because I’d seen an interview with her on Daily Show […]
