Top ten reasons the family shelter on the Eastside of Olympia is better than the motel 6 on the south side of Chicago

#1 the shelter has a piano and a fireplace in the lobby it’s warm, inviting, and kinda classy you will find none  of that sh!t at the motel 6 on the south side of Chicago
#2 Free fuzzy blankets, lunch, and cupcakes delivered from the local oly social justice activists.
day old coffee and fruit loops is not my idea of edible
#3 can you say bunk beds? what kid doesn’t want their own mini loft to play monster high with a flash light? that’s way more fun than checking for bed bugs and you know what with a  black light
#4 there is better furniture at the shelter with plaques above from various business who donated them the suite at the motel was designed sometime in the late 70’s sofa complete with cigarette burns and duct tape
#5 Free laundry and clean bedding free and clean do not go together anywhere at all on southside
#6 all wood floors no wall to wall ground in ash and duct tape print rugs turning my socks black at the shelter
#7 no sex in the shelter explaining to my kid the people in the next room are jumping on the bed and wrestling and I do not know why they are not quiet at bedtime will not happen at the shelter
#8 there are many places within walking distance of the shelter parks Puget sound, farmers market, cupcake shops, the white castle on the south side does not have  gluten free vegan cupcakes.
#9 basic cable and Netflix what! yep no 5 weird local channels and ten porn stations in the shelter common areas. Way too family oriented for that.
#10 It’s quiet and no one at the front desk treats you like shit.
the complete opposite of the motel six on the south side of Chicago.

My favorite thing to eat currently

As soon as I sit down at Fajita grill on Pacific in Olympia delicious salsa verde and homemade chips are served.

The enchiladas at Fajita Grill are the best ever. I am not sure what the secret ingredient is in the enchilada sauce that makes me want to lick the plate, but I suspect it’s love.

I love Rosalinda. She’s always friendly, tolerates my broken Spanish, and knows my order. Chicken enchiladas, my favorite thing to eat currently.

May Day 2015 – A Satire

Standard

On May 1st of 2015 all people of color, and their supporters, peacefully went on strike to stop police corruption. 90% of the country shut down and stayed home with their families. This started a wave of peaceful opting out of the system culminating with the first native, white and black female President of USA in 2016. Then the gods of water earth fire, air and spirit regained their rightful place as sacred life givers of earth. Soon, all soldiers came home, all fracking and oil drilling ceased. Hemp and cannabis products became the top exports. Monsanto was quarantined and the bees returned. Geoengineering stopped and the skies cleared. People of all colors and faiths now live in harmony. The murder rate has never been lower. And now, with the free land act and an end to homelessness, not even money separates the people.

So it is.
