Rene had the day off so he can over around noon and we went out to buy groceries for lunch and beer.
Eryc got home around 4, Christina came over, sold me some homegrown & hooked it up with some strong cookies.
Later, Gabe, Rene, & I went to go see Inception AGAIN (for $3!)
Imagine losing grip on reality THAT much? I mean, I love a good mind altering substance like as much as the next kid but FUUUUUCK. Getting and idea planted into your subconscious and losing your shit?! That's heavy.
Love the movie.
25 luglio 2010
Besides the fact that I think the movie would have been WAY better if it had been Jeff Bridges and not Val Kilmer (spitting image), I still really enjoyed the film.
It reminded me SO much of my love's Papa, Arnie. ARNIE!ARNIE!ARNIE!ARNIE!
The fact is it's reality for so many people. It's maddening. These poor souls. It breaks my heart.
Arnie was taken away from his family in 1980 when Gabe was just a baby (2yrs old). Arnie was a baby himself (19/20) and he got caught up in the wrong place at the wrong time and is now doing life on an accesory to a murder. Outta nowhere the dude he was rolling with whips a gun out and kills a gas station clerk. and that's it. you're done.
I'm not saying Arnie or men like John Smith are angels, but i feel for them. I feel for their families. These 'correctional facilities' or 'secured housing units' are absurd. Absolutely cruel and inhumane. Makes you wonder who the real monsters are.
Thank SCIENCE of the USPS. The MAN couldn't keep me from getting to know my guy's Pop. We write. I'm ashamed to say I've fallen behind on writing the past month but that's OK. I have a pile of letters ready to go tomorrow.
♥Arnie lives in the SHU at Pelican Bay. He's in solitary confinment.
♥He gets one hour of 'sunlight' a day (this means he goes to an outdoor cage) and he gets to shower 3 times a week.
♥Arnie turned 50 this May.
♥He's incredibly well read.
♥He's also extremely funny, witty, sweet, creative, and kind.
♥He's an amazing artist, poet, and writer.
If you want to get to know him, and trust, he's always looking for a new friend, you can get at him through this website.
This is a photo taken of him in 1989. He is a LOT lighter now due to lack of sunshine...
OK MAD MEN season 4 is about to begin!!!
sacco and vanzetti. two italian immigrants wrongfully killed by the us gov. charged with murder. falsified evidence and hidden motives. they were anarchists, they were innocent, most importantly, they were foreign.
the south central urban farm. south central, the 9th district, aquired 14acres of land from the owner ralph horowitz. the farmers bought plots on the land from the city. years the city secretly sold the land back to horowitz and he evicts everyone. the community and the farmers fight tirelessly to save their sacred farm to no avail. they were poor, and they too were foreign.
The New Colossus
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
Emma Lazarus had it right. It's too bad so few listened...

Sunblock, slurpees, water, swimsuits, sandals, and sunglasses are my essentials right now.
We've been spending time at the beach, the pool, and the river. At night we retreat to movie theatres, places with A/C and ice cream.
mother Earth's BOUNTIES.
MAN MADE BOUNTY lol
The house is looking spiffy lately. I feel the need to rearrange the layout of my room...
this weekend the garbage disposal got fixed, the shower curtain rod was fixed, the handle for the toilet in the littel bathroom was fixed, the contractor came and we discussed the fence he is going to build around the front and backyard!

Cinderella wasn't my favorite movie and she wasn't my favorite princess, although I did relate to her on a DEEP level with the whole EVIL step-mother....
Loved the movie. The mice, the birds, the songs!!!!
May she rest in Peace.
But all is fair in love and war and hopefully we come back in 2014 and take no mercy. I'd love to see South America dominate the finals but I just don't see that happening anymore. Germany and the Netherlands are on it. Spain and Uruguay are strong too so we'll see.
Leave it to Dodgers to turn that frown upside down with a brutal slaughtering of the Arizona Diamondback 14-1!!!!
Going to my friends Dodger themed birthday party tonight was too perfect. Spirits were high ;)
