Things on my mind today

An excerpt:

  • Yesterday’s royal engagement. Thank goodness “Waitey Katie” can stop waiting! She won the marathon! I don’t get why guys want to marry women at all since they all hate it so much and the TV says that wives always have headaches and never want to have sex and always make husbands go shopping with them when they just want to watch the playoffs.
  • So the people at Dancing With the Stars want us to believe that Bristol Palin is still on the show because of the number of votes she gets? Oh. I wonder if they have any real estate in Florida they’re interested in selling too…
  • I know that one of the big questions in the media when it comes to race and behavior is why successful Black women are single (I think the answer is because they went to college and now their standards are too high and they won’t date out), but why isn’t anyone asking Asian women why they never go missing. Isn’t that something we could all learn from?
  • Adele’s amazing new song
  • The dream I had about a person who chose to no longer be in my life.
  • Work, money, Vancouver (the usual stuff)
  • Meeting people where they are and the thin line between enlightenment and ego
  • The ridiculousness of a poundcake bread pudding. Seriously. Paula Deen would be proud.
  • Things that appear to be false starts
  • Ranch-flavored sunflower seeds in the blue bag
  • Thanksgiving.
  • pg. 50 from Siddhartha:

“When you throw a stone into water, it hurries the quickest way down to the bottom of the water. So it is when Siddhartha has a goal, a purpose. Siddhartha does nothing, he waits, he thinks, he fasts, but he passes through the things of the world as the stone passes through water, without doing anything, without touching anything; he is pulled , he lets himself fall. His goal pulls him toward it, for he admits nothing into his soul that would resist the goal. This is what Siddhartha learned among the shramanas. This is what the fools call magic and they think of as the work of demons. Nothing is done by demons, there are no demons. Anyone can work magic, anyone can reach his goals, if he can think, if he can wait, if he can fast.”

    A former twentysomething with a head full of curls and heart full of questions wondering: when we get to nirvana, will there be food?
