Who's cutting onions up in here. 
Found comment: "I work in a decent sized, local, indie bookstore. It's a great job 99% of the time and a lot of our customers are pretty neat people. Any who, middle of the day this little old lady comes up. She's lovably kooky. She effuses how much she loves the store and how she wishes she ...

This is p. good.

Quote:

The top piece of advice I'd give fledgling parents (which I wish I could follow better myself) is just this: Be aware of those moments, and never turn one down. If you face a choice — a moment or a chore, a moment or bedtime, a moment or work obligations, a moment or your damn iPhone — always choose the moment. They seem abundant, sometimes too abundant, in those early years. But childhood isn't linear; it seems to accelerate faster and faster as it progresses, and when it's over that set of memories will be all too finite.

Oi vey it's political posts day...

Money quote (sorry, it's long, deal):

To My Moderate Conservative Friends: 
This is a tough time for you.  For years, I’ve said “The Republican party is saturated with racist jerks who’d like to raze the Constitution to the ground,” and you said, “No, no, that’s not who we are, we believe in firm laws and equality.”

Then you wake up to discover that your official candidate’s a guy who literally doesn’t know how many articles the Constitution has, and David Duke is so thrilled by Trump’s candidacy he’s come out of the woodwork.  You’re not a racist – I wouldn’t be friends with you if you were – but you’re realizing that Trump is representing an ignorant, anti-science, pro-white wing of the party that you tried very hard to convince me didn’t exist.

Worse, those people you claimed didn’t exist (or were just background noise) are, in fact, dominant.

That is a moment for soul-searching.  And from what I see, y’all are doing it.  And I commend you for that.  And a lot of you are refusing to vote for Trump, as is correct.

However, while you’re soul-searching, take a moment to reflect deeper.

Because the party elders tried very hard to convince you that all of your fellow Republicans were as upstanding as you were – because they knew you might leave the party if you actually understood a lot of the people who stood with you were racists waiting for an excuse to stand back up again.  This uncomfortable dissonance you’re feeling right now is because they knowingly suckered you into believing that your reasonable concerns were what most Republicans felt – and now you’re seeing that yeah, maybe not all, but a lot of Republicans are pulling that lever out of nationalistic white pride and foreign hatred.

You’ve been suckered already.  This is a fact.  It’s not shameful unless you refuse to learn from it.


It's hard to look at the headlines when you're facepalming. But I see my Facebook feed alight with various opinions on the election, all of which are wrong – so rather than screaming OH, FOR FUCK'S SAKE at all of you individually, let me pull you into the corner and have a brief but ...

Running underneath an 8-lane highway requires a bit of faith in human engineering built by the lowest bidder.

I don't know how he did it, but this speech is at once inspiring and full of some the sickest burns. When the President calls you a "homegrown demagogue".... DAMN.

Late comment, but hopefully not entirely necromantic:

We don't have to win a scorched-Earth battle, just outlast the bigots who are dying out.

Really good food, no frills, find your own table service. Fish and chips, fish tacos, ceviche, were all superb. Kids loved the clam chowder cup and fish sticks. Everyone wins.

Very cool shop. I needed an 82mm lens cap (not the most common size) and they had it. Also had an r-strap in stock to replace my broken one. They definitely saved me from taking the rest of my vacation pictures with an iPhone. Very friendly and no nonsense staff.
