"The Power of Introverts."

"In a culture where being social and outgoing are prized above all else, it can be difficult, even shameful, to be an introvert. But, as Susan Cain argues in this passionate talk, introverts bring extraordinary talents and abilities to the world, and should be encouraged and celebrated."

"If you want to understand men ladies, I'm here for you..."

Patrice O'Neal was a funny dude.

What's your excuse, again?

Because it's probably nonsense.

No Excuses Inspiration.

"Sister, if God knows what we're all thinking then why go to confession?"

Ah, Catholicism... my disdain for your culture of guilt, shame, fear, punishment, repression and torture really knows no bounds.  
In the immortal words of Doug Stanhope - "With all the horrible, horrible shit that your priest is pumping into your kid's head, his dick should be the least of your worries, honestly. That's just a little mouthwash and a few years of therapy'll get rid of that. That Jesus shit will torture you for a lifetime."

"Types of Extremists."

I laughed.

Cooking/Food Log.

Wildly incomplete photo record this week as the Mrs borrowed my camera to go out of town since hers has gone to a better place, a farm upstate, where it can roam free and play with other cameras...  More accurate keeping of the records below...

A Farewell dinner, birthday dinner, christening gathering, BACON CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES -- not a great week on the healthy eating front.  Scale weight [not the most reliable indicator, but a decent ballpark] holding steady, though.  Tightening up in this next week as the social calendar calms down and I can resume my hermit like ways...

"Can't tell if socially awkward..."

"WAKE UP!" documentary looks fascinating.

WAKE UP - The Film | SuperConsciousness Magazine:
"WAKE UP! is the story of Jonas Elrod, an unassuming, ordinary man who one day, “out of the blue,” spontaneously awakened to be able to visually perceive phenomena that is usually invisible to the human eye. He saw and continues to see “spirits”, angels, and colorful, morphing energies everywhere around him, and it never turns off.

He’s delusional, correct? Not according to the teams of Cornell neurological and psychological physicians who examined him extensively. Then he must be one of those “woo-woo, new-agey airheads,” right? Hardly.

WAKE UP! documents the multi-year journey Jonas underwent in an attempt to understand and come to terms with his ability to see “spiritual realities,” and he did not “go gently into that good night.” He resisted, whined, complained, and pretty much dragged his feet, kicking and screaming, all the way into acceptance. Eventually, he surrendered to his instructions, “Expose what is happening. Share it with the world.”"

A convincing argument why God lets bad things happen to good people.
