Nothing Going On

Just hanging out waiting for Spring to feel like Spring. The spinach could be picked but I have not been inclined to doing so with current temps in the 30's. Warmer days ahead but with rain. Happy for rain, but not spinach picking weather either.

Meeting a high school classmate for lunch. He lives in Chicago and passes through here usually once a year. I was going to blow off our usual meet up for lunch, but my girls really pushed me to get out. Certainly I do stay home a lot.

Worked on the art journal and the sock yesterday though not simultaneously. Started a sketch, no joy in the process though. Ah passion, please come back.

Binge watched a couple of documentaries on Netflix over the weekend. First was a detailed account of the settlement of followers of Rajneesh/Osho in Oregon. Very interesting indeed. Of course I remember the news clips, but the details are fascinating. The other was about Adderal and other "performance enhancing" drugs and it rather amazed me the attitude toward their use by college students and young professionals. I cannot believe that kids who take this stuff from childhood are not going to be fucked up. Basically it's speed. Folks get all worked up about methamphetamines, but make sure their kids "take their pills", crazy, just crazy. Title = "Take Your Pills."

Sesame chicken in slow cooker.

Pooper scooper arrived yesterday, how's that for excitement?

Enjoy lunch with your friend :) Always nice to catch up like that

All those drugs freak me right out--especially when it's KIDS we're talking about. I wrote at least a dozen papers on that crap in college :l Made me so angry...couldn't stop researching... It's one of those things that just pisses you off more and more the deeper you dig. In a nutshell, big pharma sure has the world by its balls. Also, fuck corporate greed. I stay away from all those things because I'd rather feel every shitty thing life has to offer than go through it numb with a dumb-ass smile plastered across my face.

I just feel that in general our children today are pushed and pushed to produce and succeed and maybe do way too much and then adding drugs to that mix cannot possibly be good on developing brains. Big Pharma has managed to to turn all illness into being managed rather than cured and that really pisses me off.
