thinking about going vegan

I was reading up on it online. The main challenge would be cheese. As it is, I eat a cheese sandwich for lunch most days. So I would need something else to make a sandwich. Eliminating butter would be no big deal. Ice cream would be fine–the soy kind is tasty. We would not be […]

addressing envelopes

Today Erik’s at a Zen retreat. I baked zucchini bread, and I’m working on addressing envelopes for sending out Erik and LM Magazine #44. I have the layout all done, and I’m waiting to make copies on Tuesday. I guess I’ll call the copy place to see if they’re open Monday, but I bet they’ll […]

shocked

My favorite infoshop in the world Long Haul in Berkeley was raided at gunpoint on Wednesday. Property was seized (sounds like mostly computers), the warrant was provided after the fact and was vague, and the search lasted more than an hour and a half. The FBI, Berkeley police, and Alameda sheriff conducted the raid. They […]

grouchy

Today we went to Roseville to do forms for our main employer. They’re making all the online workers redo their I-9 forms. Something about heightened homeland security BS. Like a terrorist would commit acts of terrorism by scoring SAT essays? I must not understand. New zine website, social networking, looks good, called We Make Zines. […]

She put her hands on my head, and then we looked into one another’s eyes for a few seconds. I feel skeptical about this being a spiritually worthwhile thing to […]

Fox & Goose again

This morning I had a dentist appointment, which I had been dreading, which goes without saying. The hygienist was out, which means the dentist himself gave me my cleaning. The good news is that I have no cavities. They do x-rays there once a year–is this normal? For some reason, I thought more like every […]

mostly food

I accidentally bought a bag of red plums–I thought they were nectarines–and didn’t know what to do with them, so I decided to make fruit salad. The recipe is red plums, green grapes, banana, mango, and strawberries. I think the grapes are my favorite. The mangoes are really good too. Anyway, it’s a great way […]

politics

I really wanted Hillary Clinton to get picked as Obama’s vice president. Oh well.
