in a parking lot-me and a few other cops try to disperse a gathering-it takes a lot of effort.
In some place-2 weddings going on-watch one and the couple has sex right there. Go to the other-Jewish-go in back and chat with one of the men-one is related to Tracy C and I forget how so he explains it.

Driving around-E says something about Jesus when I say something about not wanting to think about Jesus. We stop in a parking lot and try to start a fire-we get it in the back of the car and cook a blue papier mache thing. It’s bread and E eats it-homeless people start gathering and we leave-I push some people away.

Looks like 2 weeks seems to be the current duration-I basically blew off everything I had to do. I got a storage unit and put all my music on it-now I can listen to my music collection at home too. Much more convenient-now I don’t have to take my laptop back and forth from home.

My exciting life: get chairs at church ready for carpet cleaning, Ikea, Fry’s, Erika went for Bill’s funeral, Thankdgiving dinner at Pemberton’s, get Christmas stuff at storage, Charo chicken, put chairs back, swim-spa & jump in cold pool, Pep Boy’s, hiked in Wood Canyon with the boys, Erika’s mom broke her arm, school dinner and concert, church dinner, had lunch at the Snooty Fox, got a tree.

Issues and current events: did anything happen? The Iraq Study Group report, which Chimpy promptly ignored, more dead Iraqis, Obamamania. Samantha Bee got all creamy over him on the Daily Show last night. TV: We watch the same thing most weeks-the Unit, Daily Show, etc. Britney showing her nether regions. Nicole Richie getting popped for DUI-the Mallard Fillmore cartoonist too.

Well, I got to this a little sooner than the last time…No worries. Life moves along, Busy at work, home, school and church. Kids are on vacation this week-I have Weds and next Mon. & Tue. off.

My exciting life: Matt went to the dentist-he was saying his spacer was loose-and it wasn’t, Souplantation, meeting at school, more meetings, no one is showing up to Tai Chi class on Saturdays, visit my parents, Debs Park walk, Mission Viejo mall, Great Khan for lunch, edit Sealight, school lantern walk at Soka University, nature center walk & cookout, swap meet, Erika’s godfather died. Plus the usual school, work, home, church.

Issues and current events: the Dems picked up both the House and Senate. Woo hoo! And Pelosi is the first woman speaker. And she immediately puts her foot in it. No matter-it couldn’t be worse than the endless debacle in Iraq. As I was driving to Tai Chi Saturday, the Minutemen were out protesting the work center on Laguna Canyon. I’ve been listening to the Bardo Thodol in the car, and the big teaching for the living is to avoid ignorance, aggression, pride, desire and envy populating your unconscious tendencies-these are what drives karma and where you go for rebirth. On the way back the aggression of the Minutemen was palpable. On Sunday our minister was saying things about how our nation spends more than it makes-unsustainable-and I realized that we are a nation of hungry ghosts. TV: I moved the cable box into the bedroom-we spend most of our TV time in there. The kids really don’t watch much other than nick, animal planet and dvd’s. I got to see some stuff I don’t get much of a chance for. There was a Star Trek OS marathon on TVLand. Erika likes Celebrity Paranormal Project-but she also likes Most Haunted and the TAPS one too. Whoopee. She’s also been watching Hallmark and TBN movies-blecch. I know I’m not watching the Madonna thing.

In court-trying to help with the mikes. Go out at recess and get a lock. Try to undo, search for the combination-have to go to the locker. Jump to US, but there are huge gothic type buildings there. JD S notes this and I keep walking. Get there-some guy is spraying perfume everywhere. I spray on him and he tries to fight. I lock up his arms.
