just today so far

This morning we walked to the co-op.  I was dragging ass.  But it was okay. Then we went to the Occupy National Gathering opening ceremony.  We saw friends, and I got hugs.  It was fun.  Then we went to Ethiopian food for lunch.  The lentils and the yellow split peas are my favorite.  The flavors […]

spinach dreams

This morning we delivered the bag lunches.  I’m curious about how the sandwiches tasted.  I had a secret fantasy that they would say, “We have two bags too many,” and give me and Ming lunches, and then we could know. This afternoon I had a dentist appointment.  I was amazed at how long it took.  […]

gnight!

Tonight we were at our friend D’s house helping assemble lunches for tomorrow’s anti-racism training for the Occupy national gathering.  They are tofu sandwiches.  So we sliced loaves of bread, washed fruit, and stuff like that.  It was fun, but I concentrated too hard.  I’m tired now. I came away from our lunch assembly party […]

not funny / funny

Yesterday we went to Coffee Garden with my learner to help him apply for a job.  He had to do this questionnaire about his attitude and how successful he is on the job.  It was terrible.  It took an hour and a half.  It was complete and utter bullshit, the kind of questionnaire where you’re […]

maybe

Yesterday we went to Berkeley.  I made some photocopies and we ate delicious Indian-Pakistani food.  We saw Ming’s mom, and we went to Long Haul infoshop where we ran into a friend.  We took him to coffee, and it was fun.  I dropped off a big bag of zines for Long Haul’s zine library. This […]

fun

Yesterday we had writers group at Coffee Garden.  It was so pleasant there I didn’t want to leave.  I wrote two poems I liked.  It was kind of hot, on the back patio, but there was a breeze. I baked cookies, some of my favorite cookies to bake: chewy chocolate raspberry cookies, which are vegan.  […]

Wild

Finished Wild this morning.  In the super simple, too simple way of evaluating things, I give it four stars out of five.  It was the first book I finished in a long time.  It was an emotional journey, that’s for sure.  It gave me some backpacking insight, more than I already had as the ex-wife […]

forgive

We picked up some quinoa rice pasta, little round ones, at Berkeley Bowl last week.  And I made pasta salad this evening.  It’s good though I would like regular wheat pasta better.  I made garlic lover’s pasta with peas and fresh garlic and everything.  Last night I was up so late, and we slept in […]

bad habit

Last night I went to a play.  It was South Pacific.  I’m still feeling out how I feel about it.  Some things about it confused me, stuff about power. My therapist was my ride, which I think is weird.  The free tickets were through the women’s center where she therapies me.  I like her very […]
