One of my friends posted this as her tribute to Stan Lee.



#259063 And how was your day???

Posted by Bj1 on 12 November 2018 - 03:34 PM

I have grindr on my phone, and use it to see what 'family' is around me.  With my carnal proclivities, one might think that a tool like this would fit my kink pretty well, but I'm one of those people that needs to SEE the other party/parties/gang/gaggle/flock/murder/... first, well - you know what I'm saying!


SO, I have grindr on my phone.  I have a profile where quite specifically - in BOTH Spanish and English, I've said I don't want contact from people under 40.  So, what do you think I get?  Yep, messages, touches, wtf's from everyone 18 to 39!  I have a squinty-sun-in-my-eyes photo that's NOT flattering.  My profile also states, no rent boyz - which I'm pretty sure ALL the profiles that describe themselves as 'discrete' are.  Still, ding.  Ding.  Ding.  Every time I've taken a second to see if any of my neighbors are fuck buddy material.  Ding.  Ding.  Hola.  ¿Está activo o pasivo?  Hola!  ¿Que estás buscando?  ¡Hola, tengo un lugar!  Ding.  Ding!


So my question, is this a case of 'I want what I can't have' or more of a 'different culture' thing?  Or, perhaps there are just a LOT of rent boyz who can't be bothered to read a profile?


I think maybe I just need to go to my favorite beach and chill a little.  With a seafood tostada and a beer.  And some daddies to look at for dessert.  I'm marking the calendar for Thursday.  Daddy watching on the beach with beer and mariscos.  No grindr.  No chicos, no ninos.  Solo hombres.

Went on a walk to find some lunch today, and wound up at the marisqueria by my apartment!  Hadn't tried the shrimp empanadas yet ... they didn't disappoint!  There were originally three, a small salad, some rice, and strangely some mashed potatoes.  Mmmmmm.  Tasty!




I also bought a liter of shrimp ceviche to-go.  $6.70 for a little more than a quart, and it's mostly shrimp.  I just took a bite - I'll be lucky to make it through the day without eating it all.  Now I'm in trouble.  I can see a revision being needed to both my monthly budget and my diet!

It is kind of funny, but very true.  Change your perspective and see a whole different world!

Just not a fan.  Reminds me of this (Experience Music Project, Seattle):




Looks like a big wad of used gum.

Here is an excellent infographic produced by a UK website called RubberBond that provides information about 5 buildings under construction that will be amongst the top 10 tallest in the World by 2021. :love3:



Having grown up on the West Coast, I'll not be in any of those buildings.  Wind sway and the thought of earthquakes would be in the back of my mind every single second!

Unless I was on the roof and had a parachute!

Consider me blown. :love3:


You're blown way too much as it is!!!!  (ok, so maybe I'm just a tiny bit jealous)!  :)


I know that if someone had asked me 10 years ago about México, my reply would have been (and was) - "Why would you ever want to go there?".  Having only seen Tijuana in the early 1960's I had preconceptions that were nowhere near reality.  And my public school system, the nightly news, and my parents didn't do anything to change that perception.  In fact, they reinforced it.  


There are some amazing things down this way.  While I cannot educate the whole USA, I can leave little breadcrumbs here and there to show the people I know a México that they may have never seen.

#258993 And how was your day???

Tonight I went to the Día de los Muertos celebration in the Plazuela República. It was the most horrific experience of my life!


Crowds of people. Happy. Celebrating their loved ones who had passed. When suddenly.


A hush came over the plazuela. Not even a tiny rustle from the leaves in the trees. Dogs stopped barking. And then it happened.


It was crazy. I don't know how to explain it. One moment the crowd behind me was there, the next moment their souls were pulled from their bodies and they were no more.


I don't know how I survived! Pure darned luck kept me on the safe side of the veil!


And when it was over, not a single person in the plazuela behind me had made it. They were just, gone.


I ran like I'd never run before, and didn't stop until I'd reached the safety of my favorite restaurant, Via Condotti, where a pizza and nice caffé americano calmed my racing heart.
