It is Revealed That , Okay, Maybe I kinda Stole Someone’s Cat

In March, when the city shut down and people were quarantining themselves in their homes and not going to work, this cat started showing up in our courtyard. He was very skittish, filthy, and looked underweight. You could see his muscle definition. My neighbor saw him once and exclaimed, “Man, that cat is RIPPED”! TheContinue reading “It is Revealed That , Okay, Maybe I kinda Stole Someone’s Cat”

Oh Yeah, I forgot I was doing this…

It’s been a while since I have written. I guess the whole pandemic just became such an overwhelming fact of reality that this blog just became a weird venue for ranting about various unrelated stuff, or relaying old stories.

The Crippling Fear That I am a Terrible Person Because I Have the Cremains of Some Random Chick in My Living Room.

Probably around the year 2000 or so, when I was living with the hair enthusiast and we were all about Ebay, there was this fabulous little shop in Portland, Oregon called Pilar’s Lemonade Stand. It had a lot of vintage and antiquey stuff, and some original art , a few medical curiosities like the clearedContinue reading “The Crippling Fear That I am a Terrible Person Because I Have the Cremains of Some Random Chick in My Living Room.”

Thanks for the reassuring words, Mike Pence

Oh, how nice. Today the “coronavirus task force” had a public meeting, and Mike Pence assured us that the US is really doing well, and look how far we have come. Ohhhhhhh….goooooddddddd……go fuck yourself! Infection rates have never been higher in the US, and it’s because of bullshit like this. This false hope, pretending theContinue reading “Thanks for the reassuring words, Mike Pence”

My Dad’s Happy Place – Bob Stupak’s VEGAS WORLD, Baby!

I had meant to write this as kind of a Fathers Day tribute, but I am a few days late. But whatever, my dad has been dead for years, so he isn’t going to criticize the timing.

Oh shit, is that art, or trash?

One friend opted out because heContinue reading “Oh shit, is that art, or trash?”

OMG, that was so hilarious when I thought I could walk to and fro work from now on!

Last Friday my VPN connection to my work computer stopped working, and our IT guy said it was simply a matter of my office computer being frozen or turned off. All I needed to do was go in to the office and restart it. Since NY started Phase One reopening today, it is becoming moreContinue reading “OMG, that was so hilarious when I thought I could walk to and fro work from now on!”

Protests, and that one time in Tijuana with the cops

There was a peaceful demonstration/vigil for George Floyd at a park a couple of blocks away from me today, so I went and checked it out. Everyone was masked, it was fine. What struck me as interesting was I met up with a few friends and we were talking in the Park after the vigilContinue reading “Protests, and that one time in Tijuana with the cops”
