On Twitter I followed a few media folks, writers for publications or similar, thinking I would get some insights on topics that wouldn’t be published in articles. Turns out I learned that some of them are incredibly mean, judgmental, and self-righteous. Perhaps I’m hypocritical for saying so, because I often find that the thing I…

secondhand learning

secondhand learning

I remember chatting with someone about a topic. Yes, I’m going to be vague on the someone and topic. Let’s call this someone “someone” and use the “he” pronoun, which isn’t meant to be discriminatory in any way. Anyway, we chat and someone asks me about something and refers me some links about this topic.…

plays

I’ve read a couple plays for a class I’m taking and they are very modern plays, meaning they’re not Shakespeare with lots of fluffy words and a cast of a million characters. These plays only have four main characters and aren’t very long. No multiple acts, just a large handful of scenes and lots of…

writing

I’ve recently started reading “Bird by Bird” by Anne Lamott. It’s about writing. And everything she says is true, fortunately and unfortunately. Today, instead of writing something important, I’m writing about a book on writing, and not even really writing about it, just mentioning it. I’ll also mention the U2 Joshua Tree tour starts tomorrow.…

I’m working with an interior designer based in Santa Monica named Shay. She’s got me on board to write for her website. It’s the beginning of an adventure talking about the how and what the studio will look like. In some ways it’s all ironic to me, and my brain has been fatigued by allergens…

shopping carts

I’ve always wondered why some people don’t put carts in the cart corrals. Some excuses could be reasoned, though not necessarily be proper etiquette: The cart corral is too far away from my car. I’m in a hurry and don’t have time to push the cart to the corral. I’m not bothering with putting carts away…

deluge

Previously: snow. Today: rain. The California drought is over. Everyone thought El Nino would take care of that last year, but it ended up being just like another dry winter. Then, this year is the year of the deluge of rain. So much rain it reminded me of Paris, where the winter rains are so…

wrapping

Previously: necks. Today: scarves The best thing about winter is wearing scarves. I don’t recall wearing or owning a scarf until I lived on the east coast, where the wind is bitterly cold and the snowfall can get inside your coat unless all entry points between coat and skin are closed off with overlapping warm…

kettle

My last post talked about Kettle chips. Today I’ll talk about electric kettles. A couple years ago I got really sick and had to drink a boatload of tea. I had a kettle but it took forever to heat up the water. The whistling also irritated me. Who likes hearing a screaming whistle when you’re…
