eric goode - amazing man

you may or may not be able to read this - if not, i'll copy it for you & mail it to you.
this article in the new yorker last week is about my old boss eric goode. he was a great boss - kind, considerate & taught me at the ripe age of 22 - to BE MORE RESOURCEFUL. he also taught me how to work an elevator in loft buildings in manhattan............ i was young. he was patient with me.

thanks eric. i think i still have your loft key.  not cool!

note to the renters market of san francisco:

You want to charge 1400 for an 800 sq ft. studio, yet you don't want to put the effort behind taking pictures of studio for your listing?

i'm trying to put 2 & 2 together here. i keep coming up empty.

jalouse parody

This parody about jalouse magazine makes me laugh because i've been watching french films every night after yoga crossfit... and sometimes i find myself walking around my apartment saying to rowdy THE FRENCH ARE SO DRAMATIC! or OH GOD THE FRENCH! SPARE ME!

on newt & the moon

I get the whole Moon mission & how it is important to science, history, mankind, etc. But what I don't get is Newt G.'s mention of putting an American Colony on the moon - (if he so graciously becomes our next President.) 

When I first heard about the speech he gave in Florida, my gut reaction was: WE NEED HELP HERE IN AMERICA! WHO NEEDS A MOON?

Before we start claiming other planets (he mentioned making the moon the 51st state) - don't you think we should get our finances in order? put our citizens to work? put an end to factory farming? get our country off the couch? reclaim our overseas factories? improve our public school system?

Just at the time when our troops are finally coming home - our noses are in our own pots - you mention taking attention away from our nation, and focusing it on the moon.

American's needing to occupy the moon is to other countries needing a monarchy. its all show.

The greater the sacrifice you ask a woman to make for you; the more she knows you love her. Honestly!
