Get lost, dude!

Hey, J-P, Mind your own business! Can’t believe the Pope feels he has the right to interfere in our business. Also, couldn’t he have chosen a more worthy cause than Timothy “No Regrets” McVeigh? His Holiness also appears to be unaware of the fact that Dictator Bush used to...

Sunday Morning

Now I keep hearing that Velvet Underground song in my head. Had my ritual morning coffee up on the roof deck this morning. I only have one cup a day, but I am no less addicted for that! I trace my coffee addiction to a summer I spent in...

Les Reves de Cuisine

Daydreaming about going to cooking school somewhere really fun, like Europe. And not stuffy Cordon Bleu in Paris, either. I’d love to go La Combe en Perigord, where the cooking school is in an 18th century French chateau. (Sorry, but I don’t know how to put French accents in...

Another great day to be black in America

Remember those cops who shot unarmed African immigrant Amadou Diallo 41 times and became the subject of an infamous Springsteen song a couple of years ago? Well, they are just getting a slap on the wrist. Basically, the New York Police Department has decided to send them to charm...

It’s not just me, then?

Even with the current economic bust, this is still an absurdly expensive place to live. But I can’t imagine living anywhere else…which is probably why it’s still so expensive, since most San Franciscans presumably feel the same way. Glad I’m not moving here now! Yikes!

Morbid Wednesday

As Rufus and I were walking past the funeral home on our way to work early this morning, a guy came out dressed in a surgeon-type smock and pants, removing his rubber gloves. Taking a smoke break after an embalming, I guess… Came across this gem in Jan Bondeson’s...

Big Boss

So I had a talk with the new Big Boss. BB is the boss my boss reports to — the boss de la boss. He’s a new guy and supposedly the point of the talk was for him to get to know me. I bet the only thing he...

Never a dull moment

And you thought the Prince and Princess were the worst bickering to come out of Wales. According to salon.com,Donny Osmond recently told a Welsh newspaper that his family has traced its roots to Wales. “I don’t know a lot about Wales,” he said. “But from what I hear the...

Is Linda Black spying on me?

Here’s my horoscope for today: Let others make the demands and draw the attention. Just keep track of the money trail and the bottom line. Here’s my mother’s: Your social life may be curtailed due to financial constraints. It’ll be good for you to practice deferring gratification. You’ll grow...

Give me strength (& give me coffee)

So my mother’s jerk husband (see About Me) is AWOL, and I mean literally. He has disappeared, apparently to the wilds of Canada, which is such a small place I’m sure it will be easy to find him. He is in the Marines, and since he has failed to...

I hate public transit

It was raining this morning, so instead of walking to work as usual, I had to take the bus. I hate public transit. The whole problem with it is…it’s public. And other people are just so loathsome. As Dorothy Parker said, “other people are hell.” Also I always end...
