no thinking

Political correctness - a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

Monthly Detritus Report (10-12)

More random chatter from the Monkey Mind as it leaps from limb to limb, howls, scratches its balls and flings feces at passersby…

  • 01
    • Hope you had a great Blasphemy Day! Did you blasphemed yesterday? It felt good, didn’t it?
    • “It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all — in which case, you fail by default.” ~ J.K. Rowling
    • I often get them confused. “I said let’s go join a Buddhist colony! Buddhist!”
  • 02
    • Punctuation can save a life. “Let’s eat Grandpa.” vs. “Let’s eat, Grandpa.”
    • Conformity usually involves the sacrifice of one’s identity and one’s individuality and sometimes one’s principles.
  • 03
    • Why is chkdsk so slow? I’ve had root canals that were quicker and more enjoyable.
    • Only work order today was for a PC and monitor that would not power on. When I entered the office I noticed that the power strip was not plugged into the outlet. Do ya think that had anything to do with it?
    • Hatha Yoga at Day Yoga Studio. Great practice. The time on the blocks was heavenly.
  • 04
    • “What were once vices are now fond memories.” — me, just now.
  • 05
    • RT @yisforyogini: “Defy your own group. Rebel against yourself.” ~ Cathy Guisewite
    • Who is Marilyn Trumbull and why do I need to get the latest on her? Is she someone I should know?
  • 06
    • Nothing memorable posted today.
  • 07
    • “I don’t trip. I do random gravity checks.” That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
    • Working on a few little projects around the house.
  • 08
    • “We have been programmed to consume foods that do not nourish, buy things we do not need, borrow money we will never have, marry though we do not know how to love and live without questioning the meaning of life. How can we embody our unlimited potential if we all follow nearly identical life paths? More importantly, how can we expect our planet to sustain us as we blindly follow paths to destruction?” We can change the program.

    • RT @DepressedDarth: Padme and I are never ever ever ever getting back together.
  • 14
    • I’ve found most of the veggies for the cleanse. Next on my agenda is to replace a headlamp bulb and find the seeds and the other stuff.
    • Replacing the headlight bulb turned out to be much simpler than anticipated. I take back all the terrible things I said earlier today about GM engineers. Sometimes they get it right.
  • 15
    • First attempt at kitcheri ws a disaster. Did not bear any resemblance to any kitcheri I’ve ever seen. Rice porridge, while not a disaster, still counts as a failure. Very abbreviated yoga practice. Feeling tired, hungry and unclean this morning. On the other hand, the CCF tea turned out okay.
  • 16
    • Love the Nude Beach Planet!
    • “The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it.” ~ George Orwell
    • Good read. Why Life is So Difficult Today (and Mankind in Such a Mess) ~ Ben Ralston
    • “When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.” ~ Alexander Graham Bell
    • I’ve let go of Marilyn Trumbull. Alas, I never really knew her. Nevertheless, I wish her well. Live long and prosper, Marilyn.
  • 17
    • RT @yisforyogini: “Truth makes happy, truth liberates.” — Nisargadatta Maharaj
    • Great hatha yoga class this evening at Day Yoga Studio. Surprised myself going into Salamba Sarvangasana from Setu Bandha Sarvangasana. I’ve always had trouble with that but tonight it just happened.
  • 18
    • Pretty good practice this morning but yesterday’s magic did not repeat itself. The magic is like that. It comes when you least expect it, not when you call for it.
  • 19
    • And government marches on…blindly. Free Online Education Is Now Illegal in Minnesota ~ Will Oremus
    • Turkey Season — I shot my first turkey yesterday! Scared everyone in the frozen food section. It was awesome! Gettin’ old is so much fun…
    • Saw this in my Twitter feed this morning. Don’t know who said it but I like it: “A good life is when you assume nothing, do more, need less, smile often, dream big, laugh a lot and realized how blessed you are.”
    • Bonus quote of the day: “Normal is not something to aspire to, it’s something to get away from.” — Jodie Foster
    • Not looking for the 4.5 lbs I lost this week. Don’t miss them.
    • Squat everywhere — The Squat Song
  • 20
    • “When you start to tell lies you enter a very dangerous arena, a grey world where black and white blur into one, and right and wrong lose their meaning. And one day you will find yourself an altogether grey person, because you will have started to believe your own lies.” The latest Yoga Scandal? Or you prefer to read about Truth? ~ Ben Ralston
    • “The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it.” ~ Author Unknown
    • It’s sad that the protest songs of the 60s & 70s are just as relevant now as they were then. Has anything really changed? — Sunshine ~ Jonathan Edwards
    • “Your work is not to drag the world kicking and screaming to a new awareness. Your job is to simply do your work … Sacredly, Secretly, and Silently … and those with ‘eyes to see and ears to hear’, will respond.” — The Arcturians

    • Why Tantra? A Personal Story ~ Nicole Taylor Linehan
    • Upgraded from ADSL to U-verse. Have my network all reconfigured and working. Not sure what I’m going to do with the TV/DVR box. I’ll give them back eventually. I just wanted faster Internet.

    • Trust the process, don’t rush it. I’ve been learning that lesson this past week. On Gateways and Trusting the Process ~ Sadhana for One
    • It doesn’t matter what you believe. What matters is what you do. “Welcome Great Pumpkin”
    • Sunday hatha yoga at Sri Yoga Center.

    • For some reason my droid is sucking too much power. Have to charge it 3 to 4 times a day and that’s with an extended battery. Haven’t installed any new apps. Even the original OEM battery is dead after a couple hours.
