TMBG

Last night I went to bed too early.  So I’m up early listening to some They Might Be Giants but soon I’ll switch back to my staple of Sufjan Stevens. Today is Food Not Bombs and we didn’t soak beans last night but I’m thinking of making rice.  We suddenly have a lot of rice, […]

someone has stolen all the water

It’s cool in here.  This morning I wore shorts and a teeshirt to the serving site and was cold.  It was 6:30 am and a cold wind blew.  But the people we serve have to live in that weather.  One man I served wore a blue tarp wrapped around him. Then we washed dishes and […]

peace

This morning was adventurey.  Ming transferred funds and we headed out to CCDC to pay King Ron’s bail.  On the way I got a txt from G that King Ron was home and could we come pick him up sometime. So we changed our route and went to G’s house and talked to King Ron […]

I had a nice phonecall with my friend R that comforted me.  Sometimes he calls me after school, driving in his truck, and we talk about exams and stuff–it’s mundane, sort of, but we get into a rhythm and it doesn’t matter what […]

a decision maker’s angry complaints

My blog is a good place to complain.  Let me begin. 1.  Some people were supposed to be served breakfast.  But the person who was supposed to serve them never showed up, and Ming (the backup) was at a doctor’s appointment and bread pick up.  So I felt awkward like I should serve them, but […]

the cutest ice tray in the world

Well, I finished a new functionally ill.  I feel good about it though the cover’s weird.  I’ll show you another day. Ming has a doctor’s appointment.  King Ron will go with him, and then he’ll cook lunch for the Shut Down Creechers.  Then Ming and King Ron will go out to Camp Justice to serve […]
