HEY! Why am I the only one posting in this thread. I get a bottle of wine once every couple of months. It gives 3 days of 1 glass a day. That gets me very drunk. Anyway.....Today I shredded a co-worker. In front of my boss. (That part doesn't matter.) That worthless waste of skin keeps going to the bar and helping himself to the espresso machine. Is he trying to teach my bartenders to steal? I've been in a foul mood for 2 days. Why? Fuck nose. I have 300 duties at work and the one I really hate keeps coming back. Counting the boss's money. I work in a casino. It would be a hell of a lot more interesting if we did it in the nude like in the movies. Tonight, (around 8 when I'm sober), I'll go back and do the stuff I enjoy. Office depot ordering, Shit I can't think of anything else I like. I don't even like office depot ordering.

So, it's daffodil season. They look glorious in the yard. FUCK. I'm way behind on my bm prep and at work. Do you think it has anything to do with me retiring this year. I'm supposed to write an office manual. Who the hell would take this job? I can't get enthusiastic about doing a bang up job when I'll be gone in 6 months. I love my boss. He's been the best ever. Put up with me. I've been there way too long. I need to clean out 2 room upstairs at my house. There's a 3rd room I can't even get to . Kiss, kiss

HI Ratty
Didn't you to be alone on this thread....last night my cold was bothering me so it was a half a bottle of some generic night time cold medicine and a half bottle of Ouzo (it is good they taste the same)

Like Hemingway said, write drunk and edit sober
Deviation from the norm will be punished unless it is exploitable
Nice zipper on those pants...mind if I try it out? :P
Cute toes taste better!

OK, ok. I'm on a BUNCH of email lists. I live near SF so there are 2 or 3 events every week. What really frosts my fanny is...."Please come to our fundraiser. OK. I'm in the city this Saturday so I'm game. WHAT! The first 3 tiers of tickets are sold out?! I could have attended for $3 but now it'll cost me $193.00. Really! I would go if you ever sent me an invite for a medium priced ticket. What am I? Your go-to guy for easy money. I'm evidently on your list but don't get the memo until all the cheap seats are sold. Wouldn't everybody make more money selling them all for a set price? I would attend a lot more events that way.

BTW I'm not your wife so don't lie to me.

It's Friday and the beat goes on. This Sunday I hope to meet up with Robbi Dobbs. (Haven't seen her since 2015 burn.) Very excited about that. The Pride Parade in SF was great. Silly me. No sunscreen and now I'll peel like a grape. Got some Meeriweather from a friend. Too funny the twists and turns California takes. I built a 'Man Cave' for my hubby out in the yard. It's a section of carport to replace his giant umbrella set-up. He loves it. The list of honey-do grows instead of shrinks. Sew tent, make signs etc.... I like wine. It makes me a jolly good fella. I like wine. It helps me unwind and sometime it makes me to feel mellow.

Necessary evil? It should BE necessary to be drunk when posting, or at least highly encouraged and accepted.

The Playa with no alcohol wouldn't be as fun... so let the shenanigans continue on the ePlaya!
Love brings us Home
Hope restores our soul
We Burn on the Playa of the
Black Rock Desert
& We fear no evil
for the Man is on our side
Surely Faith & Love will follow
All our Lives
& We will dwell in the house of Love
Forever

Karma can be a fickle bitch. I just got a call, (at home while I'm enjoying my wine), about someone losing their money in the tampon machine at work. Why me I ask. then I remember...

I'm at K-Mart and duck into the restroom for emergency supplies. WHAT! No machine! How could this be? A major store with 80 or 90% women shoppers and NO feminine hygiene machine. Well you can bet my blood boiled. (No pun intended.) I was told to go to 'will call' for supplies. Fuck that. I went to the store manager. After a lengthy and heated conversation I remember saying, "I want you to think of that tampon machine as a television set and my period as the Super Bowl. When the Super Bowl happens next month there better be a TV." There was.

Then there was the 'incident' at Oakland Airport. My kids were clawing at me. Begging me not to make a scene. How in the hell could Oakland FUCKING Airport not have a tampon machine? I didn't get arrested because my daughter was crying and they probably felt sorry for both of them. It was close.

Through the years there were many other confrontations.

Fast forward to 2009. The casino moves into a brand new building and somehow the hygiene machine keys end up on my key chain. That's all. I wanted to warn you. If you take a stand against, say, dogs pooping on the sidewalk. If you confront the owners and feel completely vindicated someday you will own a pooper scooper business. You'll pick up dog shit all day and ask yourself why me.
