6 Randoms: Getting Loosey Goosey.

6 08 2013

1. Recently I moved across Colfax and now am located in between Cheesman Park and City Park. I’ve started running through City Park to try a new route and I’m pretty sure they should just go ahead and rename it to Goose Park. They’re pretty chill geese, but I remember back in the day a herd of them charging at me, honking, beaks out ready to peak me to death. So. It’s always a risk I take while running over there.

2. Did you hear about the science lab that created a $325,000 artificial meat patty from the stem-cells of the shoulder of a cow? It seems like an expensive investment but then when you think about the amount of dead animals that get consumed in a year on the planet, and the cost of their wasted lives—not to mention the amount of food and land and water it takes to run the meat industry, perhaps the lab is going in a good direction. Even though in reality we could all live without hamburgers altogether.

3. I love opening up my windows and feeling the nice breeze blow through the apartment, but sometimes the sounds of summer are not entirely pleasant, the constant block circling of the ice cream truck, the next door neighbors—no matter where I am at—working on some construction project, semi-trucks revving, ambulances rolling through constantly. It’s kind of loud out there.

4. Speaking of loud trucks, it could just be me, but there seems to be a surplus of hot sexy firefighters around Denver. What do I have to light on fire to meet one?

5. Yesterday, while waiting to go to work I met Homeless Joe. He had just spent his last $1.50 on a beer and sat down at the bus stop to enjoy it. He told me that sometimes when he stands on the corner he can wait for up to four hours and not make anything, other times he can make $20 in a minute. He said it’s like playing the slots and the house always win. I don’t know why I thought that they probably made way more money than that, I guess I read an article a long time ago about certain homeless people in New York or Chicago or somewhere making like 50K a year. Obviously that’s a rare situation.

6. Recently I posted an article on elephant journal called Caught Between Monogamy & Polyamory: A Case of One-itis and on their sub-page on facebook in the Dating & Relationship section some dude wrote this:
granola

And I just want to take a moment to analyze it.

Somewhere in this statement is blatant fear of female sexuality, because being a liberated woman means I can do what I want with my body—part of that liberation is the choice to not have children. The problem with these kinds of statements is that they assume that reproduction is the one and only goal of women on the planet and women who do not abide by this are “mad,” and are “selfish,” and are not saying anything of value because of that. It’s just another way that men, whether consciously or not, attempt to hold on to power. “We” call “them,” is a passive manipulative way of trying to act as if other people are on his side and that there are other people on mine, instead of him just being courageous enough to say that he thinks I’m a flake and to own up to his opinion.

My opinion is that I don’t even like granola that much so I probably shouldn’t be labeled one.
