About Me

I truly believe that we will all live in peace and brotherhood someday. And so that I don't lose my faith in humanity, I will live my life as if that day had already happened.

Friday Night Wine-Buzz. Chianti. I should drink Beaujolais in honor of Nice.

But I don't have any.

The world completely sucks right now...

Shit. It has started. The other day, a patient brought a gun in to the clinic.

Waved it in the face of a colleague, and then demanded narcotic medication.

He was told to leave the weapon in his car, and he pulled the usual "I got my rights" horseshit.

Nobody got hurt this time...

Goddamn fucking gun owners...

No edition of William Shakespeare's Thought For The Day today.

I'm so outraged by the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philandro Castile, that the only images I felt compelled to use in my post were alarmingly graphic. As I prepared to press 'Post My Thread!', I realized that the images could be considered highly-disrespectful violence porn. I couldn't bring myself to go through with it.

I know we're all anguished about this, and the subsequent events in Dallas. And while deploring the murder of cops is a worthy reaction, I'm choosing to perpetuate the memory of Sterling and Castile. Will and I are taking a break this weekend. I hope we'll be back on track soon.

Listening to the rain falling outside. It's soothing...

Friday Night Wine Buzz: A tip of the hat to all the sexy lady Loungers.



Societal outlooks: 1985 and 2015; in one song.

1985:



2015:

How Sweet The Sound...



Just trying to stay sane right now...

Fourth of July Buzz: Two...okay, LARGE (ahem) glasses of wine, and a couple of shots.



I'm going to need them in order to get through the neighborhood fireworks madness.

Why, oh why did I not ask for the 5th off from work?

Saturday, July 2nd. The Weekend Edition of William Shakespeare's Thought For The Day.



"What a wretched and peevish fellow is he,
to mope with his fat-brained followers
so far out of his knowledge!"

Henry V, Act III, Scene 7, Lines 133-135.

Friday Night Wine-Buzz. Yellow Tail Shiraz. Rejoicing in not having to study...
