I only got to fly for work was when I could convince my boss that I needed more training on my computer system (VAXEN for any of the olds into 80s & 90s computer systems). I would take classes in Boston since I am on the west coast so I got to see their museum of science where they have a Van de Graf generator that is Read more

I will probably have the TV on but since I have no living room furniture (and refuse to put it in my bedroom), I am not sure how much attention I will be paying to it. Just before the shutdown, I had a bunch of people in to clear all the stuff from my apt - the couch was a 1970 forest green 3 cushion leather job. Read more

There was so much wrong with the whole episode; the school cop giving her a chance to wiggle out is one but FFS the knives she was going to use! I don’t want to help people like her out but the human body is tough and very difficult to pierce so choosing kitchen knives would have cut up her hands pretty badly and she Read more

I am considering ordering a breast-free turkey from a local supermarket - I really dislike white meat and kind of like the image of a breast-free carcass baking in the oven at 180 F. Start it in the morning and it will be done for dinner. Since I live alone and love my own cooking - can’t go wrong with this plan. It Read more

When I wore my favorite sweatshirt, people would get really upset - it was a wine label for Joe Stalin Red a nasty, harsh, uncompromising, wine. People would yell at me about what an evil man he was but I was never turned away from a polling place.

I really dislike malteds! I much prefer milkshakes, not sure from whence the prejudice comes but I really, really dislike them.

My ex was a taster for Green Giant - she will never eat canned vegetables, especially corn. Maybe things have changed since the 70s but she says that the ‘aged’ corn was what went into cans and diseased corn was what went into creamed corn Read more

Is Chipotle’s still poisoning people? I remember when there was a food poisoning story out of Chipotle’s every 6 months or so. Sorry, call me crazy but eating there is like playing Russian Roulette - and not in a good way. Read more

One video showed a guy getting up, grabbing some hand lotion and a paper towel while everyone on the call was yelling at him, trying to get his attention, actually calling him on his cell to no avail - trou dropped and meeting adjourned.

A person’s name is sacred (sacrosanct?); it is a public symbol for for a person. I am  trying to find the words for the very reprehensible act of mocking a person’s name but words fail. Perdue failed as a person; failed as a politician; failed in what makes a society work. I just fucking can’t...

Agent Scully - doing much better than me; I have put off doing laundry for another day so I am heading into my 15th day w/o doing laundry - I may have too much underwear, I have not run out of socks, undies, or t-shirts yet but my sheets are getting kind of stretchy. I don’t think I will be able to make it all the way Read more

A cautionary tale: When I was young and stupid living in a basement apt, I decided to warm the place up by turning on the burners on the stove. We had just had a really successful party - lots of drinking, pot-smoking and, best of all, acid. There were people sleeping everywhere; I think there were 5 people on the Read more

Not true - one of the branches flipped up, smacked me in the butt and poked a hole in my tights (I was Rodger d’Ecargotte - named after the ‘business/pleasure’ scene in Start the Revolution Without Me

The alarm went off - fed GG, had a beer, oops - haven’t eaten anything yet today. I am kind of buzzed. Have a cooking question that probably needs its own post, sigh. Haven’t been out of the apt for a couple days but check the mail regularly waiting on my ballot.
