joining a new food co op

just give me the straight poop, would you be able to work with this? it's a new (to me anyway) kind of food co op that has no brick and mortar store. it's coordinated by volunteers, and people go to farms collecting produce, as well as having them shipped to the volunteer's house, where more volunteers split up the "shares." as a co op member, you buy shares, and that's it.

funny things, intentional and otherwise

so it came to light that i am a favorite recurring character in lil' filth's little routines.

my kid got into acting when she was about.... what was she ten? nine. she was great, for a kid who just started, for a nine year old. seriously, we send her to a pretty good theater academy, and audiences can be heard saying "who's that kid?" and some other parents have approached me to say things like "i hope you really push her with that, she has real talent."

February 14: i love you hipmama

because i'm a sap, i was reminded by story corps to say i love you to people while i still have the chance.

this place looks dead a lot of the time, this is definitely a transition time, but i respectfully remind the longstanding readers and contributors that we have had a tremendously rich history here, so many things have gone down, good and bad and it's always been interesting.

so happy whatever day, i love you.

overview of events in Oakland, and the integrity of a citizen journalist is questioned

for one, you can watch a good overview of Oakland, which does not sugarcoat the actions of the more violent protesters, in the democracy now piece from today:

more escalation in oakland

occupiers are moving into a vacant park. they were not granted a permit. cops in riot gear have been spotted in aerial video running at protesters at full speed. protesters have a bus, which cops are attempting to stop and confiscate.

their scanner says "we need to separate this bus from this crowd."

when that's tweeted, the scanner notes to cops using radio that they're being monitored. and the OPD even followed tim pool (prominent citizen journalist who's covered Occupy since the beginning) on twitter.
