    Vintage News

    Oh cool. While I was away from here, I worked in an historic hotel for about a month. I love things that are vintage. Especially prior to 1985.

    The Weather.

    The weather lately has made me mentally ill and makes me wonder if I should keep trekking north. I thought this was a good spot for me, and IT IS, it's very resilient to climate change, but we got smoke drift for a few days. We got the Bay Area "apocalypse skies" on Thursday, then terrible smoke...

    The Coffee House-Come & Chat With Us!(March 2020)

    I almost never bought paper towels in the past (although I used them occasionally if a roommate had some) for environmental reasons. But hear this: I live with university students and go to a college campus five days a week. Everything is calm now, but it's about not-to-be when a bunch of...

    What are you listening to right now?

    I feel like this is more genuine Black music than girl groups. I feel there's an exploitative concept to the idea if you're not intentionally supporting it. I express myself so badly sometimes. I hope you get what I mean. I just remember African-Americans being creative, original...

    Yeah good job! I wasn't quite myself at the time I made this post (just as a disclaimer!) BUT I do think Spice Girls are a good answer. However, they don't have that exact experience of being a "girl group" in terms of back up vocals. I think that's where I was going with Expose? Because there...

    The Coffee House-Come & Chat With Us!(February 2020)

    I am very sorry and apologize for any stupid behavior last weekend. I was drunk and perhaps running a fever (I haven't felt well and have respiratory disease around me). I am ashamed of some of my posts on this forum, and move towards forgetting rather than reviewing. Thank you if you...

    What are you listening to right now?

    One of the hobbies of my adult life is examining popular culture of my childhood, because I find it so entrancing. I am very typical of a person who enjoys the music of my youth, except for the extremity of my youth. I like music from being a gleam in my daddy's eye through age four...

    What are you listening to right now?

    I've been obsessed with Toad the Wet Sprocket, this relatively obscure band from my teens. Of course they're not obscure to people my age or a little older, but I don't see people in their teens and early twenties wearing Toad shirts like they still wear Nirvana, Pearl Jam, or Stone Temple...

    Favorite Recent Films

    These don't have to be vegan, vegetarian or animal rights oriented. I thought it might be informative and entertaining to talk about recent movies we like. I watched The Wrath last night, which is a 2018 Japanese horror film now available streaming on-line. Wow, what a beautiful film with...

    Happy February and Happy Leap Year! 🐰🦘 My semester keeps getting better. I got an environmental ed internship that pays me a stipend at the end of the semester, which helps with summer finances and gives me degree-related experience to put on my resume. Between the museum internship, my...

    The Coffee House-Come and Chat With Us!(January 2020)

    The good news I have is that I LOVE all of my classes this semester. I can't believe how much I love my classes! Environmental grant writing is a second chance! This is the most exciting one (but hardest class) because rather than writing my thesis as a grad student in the program, I'm learning...

    Same. In Northern California things like overnight oats and smoothies only appeal in the summer. Climate and weather affect us hugely. I am very different than I was in LA.

    The Coffee House-Come and Chat With Us!(January 2020)

    People have different types of intelligence (visual, auditory, verbal, intrapersonal, interpersonal, kinetic, mathematical, naturalistic) and it may be exhausting for you because you're not visual. I think people who do sign language interpretation have to have high visual and interpersonal...

    Lol? Why do I keep attracting douchebags?!

    Ok you've got to make some concessions. You can't keep doing the same thing you've always done because you'll get the same thing you've always gotten. You can't just "focus on your career" and "be me" and then complain you're meeting uggos (and by uggos, I mean inner uggos too). What you're...

    Lol? Why do I keep attracting douchebags?!

    The men who approach me are always insincere "nice guys." At least you get douchebag transparency. Men who like me know they have to be good boys and act accordingly, until they don't have to. And I don't mean that like I'm some princess/queen type with impossible standards, I mean they fail in...

    I recovered from my hellish Fall semester by first withdrawing and feeling kind of crappy then finally I had a bit of money to afford myself a belated holiday present, and stayed at a local Victorian inn, did some shopping and got a massage and had some fun. I feel sooo much better now. I'm...

    What are you reading now?

    I needed a break from non-fiction and anything related to veganism or animal rights. But even paperback mysteries weren't cutting it because some of my favorite trashy authors are mildly sexist men and I haven't been in the mood to overlook it. So I finally found this great escapist novel...
