Trayvon Martin

This is what I have to say about this tragedy: If I were told by law enforcement to stay put & I didn't & then some kid in a hoodie started throwing Skittles at me; I would just say "Thank you" because I really like Skittles.

Forgive me, but, I have to make light of this situation because if I think about it too hard; my head will fucking explode. The bottom line is this: Zimmerman was told not to follow. He followed anyway. Case closed. I liken this type of profiling to what I experienced post 9/11. I live in the DC metro area. At the time of 9/11 I was living in a high-rise apartment building which housed people of all nationalities. Alot of which were middle eastern. The day after 9/11, there was a posting in the lobby which stated that the residents of said building should report any persons that appeared "suspicious". WTF does that mean? As far as we knew at the time; the only "suspicious" thing the men that hijacked the planes did up to that point was be middle eastern. Was I suppose to report all my neighbors that were middle eastern? Anyway, I am a white woman in one of the most diverse cities in the world; but, if I were a black teenage male right now, I'd wear a tie & carry a briefcase every time I left the house just to feel safe. Every single day something happens that makes me say to myself, "Thank God I didn't have children because I fear for the state of the world". On February 26th, Trayvon being murdered was what made me think it that day.

Funny stuff

This was my post 3/04/05....FUNNY...Well, funny to me...I NEVER drink Sangria now. And I was pretty sassy 7 years ago...

Friday, March 04, 2005

should present itself truthfully. It should just say, "Drink Me! But just to let you know; I'm Death in a Glass!".

Whoever decided that red wine & brandy should be mixed together was either a} Really smart because it tastes good or b} Really stupid because it makes you feel like killing yourself or someone else the next day.

I had 4 Sangria's last night. And one shot of Grand Marnier. It is now 11:00pm THE NEXT EVENING. My eyelashes still hurt.

And I am a Professional (bartender, that is) so trust me when I tell you all that sugar leads to nothing but heartache.

(Disclaimer: I am not a Sangria novice. I just got stupid & went pass my 2 drink max where that drink is concerned.)


I can't even think straight.


Sandra Fluke

Rush! Sooooo... I thought to myself: "Self, you should do some research on Rush before you write what you're really thinking about him. You can't go off half-cocked on this recent hoopla about a person you listened to, ummm, 15 years ago without having a good, solid background on where this person is coming from. I did it & came up with nothing. In My Humble Opinion: The guy is a fucking idiot & I don't even understand why he has a forum. I'm asking this question in all seriousness: Who is listening to him???? Are there actually people out there that are taking what this guy says as truth & forming opinions on where they stand on the issue of women's health?

Sandra Fluke, I applaud you. Rush had his 2 minutes of fame on this issue (I am not going to sully the great Andy Warhol by giving Rush 15 mins) but, Sandra will be remembered for generations for her knowledge, grace, and eloquence in handling what for most would be a limelight they would choose to sidestep.



I am a woman. With that being said, I have alot of opinions about all the issues being brought up about women's health care in the Presidental election. In a nutshell, this photo represents what I think about it all.

Now, truth be told, I didn't know who Sen. Judy Eason McIntyre was from Adam. But, I liked her immediately when I ran across this photo. Because it says what I want to say but can't.

Being a bartender in DC, I am not able to divulge which side of the fence I am on to my customers because I would not be able to make a living. (Bartender rule #1: Never appear to pick a side on the subjects of politics, religion or abortion. NEVER, EVER.) If you choose to, and you win the battle; you lose the war. Which is your tip. Which is 100% of your income in most cases.

This is true for most bartenders that make anywhere from 2.13$/hr to 7.25$/hr which only covers your taxes, ss, etc. There is nothing left over & we receive a check every two weeks with the words "This Is Not A Check" stamped across it. And on a side note: that freaks me out whenever I sit and think about it. What if I wake up tomorrow & I have no personality & hate all people? Most of the people I deal with are very nice; but, what if I lose the capability to stomach the small percentage of assholes I DO deal with & accidentally on purpose stab one of them with my wine key? Sure, it would be a superficial wound; but there would probably be lawyers & lawsuits involved.

peace....for only as long as it takes me to think about what I want to say about Rush.
