Ways I relax (PICS)

-
Ain't Life a stressful trip! Well I hate stress; and bona fide stressors like babies, drama queens, women motorists trying to parallel park, idiots who take +16 items to the "10 Item" register, court TV, paramilitary pigs, loud headphones. 

Of the many things I try to do to fight back the blues or rage are to enjoy some ice cream or chocolate; take a long, aimless walk; watch comedy; or porn.

 this book made me suspicious to UK Border Patrol

write


watch the sunset


 pause and take in the beautiful surroundings



exercise


or a massage; and what better way to have a massage than with the ocean breeze -- that is, when either Saucy or Tootsie Pop ain't around? (You can guess how she got the name. Hello!)

Or a happy ending to the day...in whatever way it comes.

San Diego die-in



Corpses on the tracks?! Not quite. They are human bodies but they're not dead ones. These snapshots come courtesy of a reader who was downtown when protesters staged a die-in on San Diego's Fifth Street. After a march to the destination they laid down on the trolley tracks en masse in observance of the citizens who have died at the guns/tasers/strangle holds of police brutality -- largely gone unpunished.



If you have pics of a monumental/weird happening or funny sign from your travels (which may or may not have included racism), please share it with me and I'll post it.

Gifts from the heart

My Christmas gift to me
it's personally signed!

& my New Year's gift to me

...because sometimes you just can't wait for others to do nice shit for you.

I admit, I cheated with both. They were carefully packed and set aside but, oh well, I do likes to have my cake and eat it too. Robby Robinson's memoir was supposed to be my New Year's gift but after meeting him in person and touching on a few topics I couldn't hold off on cracking open the cover and reading what he had to share about his trials with Weider et al. as well as experiences in Europe. I paced myself so that The Black Prince still wound up being my first book of 2015.

In regards to the Kentucky bourbon, well my downstair neighbor and her babies expedited that appointment with Jim Beam. If there was ever an elixir the doctor ordered! I can understand why some men turn to the bottle. This was my first time tasting the Black style. I'm partial to the original recipe (white label) but, having already tasted the Honey one, I wanted to try this new double-aged brew. Not bad; honestly, though, under the circumstances, it could've been black&blue for all I cared because - hello! - I needed me an early sip or two.

New Year's 2015 (pics)

-



In the last hours of the year I managed to get in a workout at Gold's Gym, cut my hair, brushed my tuxedo, updated contacts on my new email address, received emails of well wishes and sarcastically wished a happy new year to the thieving slumlord who sent me to Tijuana prison; had sex, completed two chapters of the book I'm currently reading, meditated (actually I was aiming for a nap but never quite dozed off)took stock of my pantry and refrigerator - and all around me - and generally counted myself fortunate.

When the countdown terminated I paused to reflect: happiness; sanity; a full stomach, good health; vagabond wealth; and plenty of style; and greeted the immediate arrival of 2015 with a smile, toast of sparkling wine and a hand rolled cigar (and flask of bourbon. Hello!) Before heading home I bumped into a few old acquaintances and kissed a lady along the way. It's sooo good to be me.  


  healthy, handsome & gifted
