Weekend Inspiration – Roll the Dice by Charles Bukowski

2

roll-dice

if you’re going to try, go all the

way.

otherwise, don’t even start. 

if you’re going to try, go all the

way.

this could mean losing girlfriends,

wives, relatives, jobs and

maybe your mind. 

go all the way.

it could mean not eating for 3 or 4 days.

it could mean freezing on a

park bench.

it could mean jail,

it could mean derision,

mockery,

isolation.

isolation is the gift,

all the others are a test of your

endurance, of

how much you really want to

do it.

and you’ll do it

despite rejection and the worst odds

and it will be better than

anything else

you can imagine. 

if you’re going to try,

go all the way.

there is no other feeling like

that.

you will be alone with the gods

and the nights will flame with

fire.

do it, do it, do it.

do it.

You know what’s good with a Donut? A Cappuccino – Happy Cappuccino Day!!!

simpsons

National Cappuccino Day is observed annually on November 8.

Traditionally prepared with espresso, hot milk and steamed-milk foam, a cappuccino is an Italian coffee drink.

The word cappuccino comes from the Capuchin friars and is the diminutive form of cappuccio in Italian, meaning hood or something that covers the head.   This popular coffee beverage got it’s name not from the hood on their habits but from the color of the hooded robes that the friars wore.  (The Capuchin friars is an Order of friars in the Catholic Church, among the chief offshoots of the Franciscans.)

  • In 1945 Achille Gaggia invented the modern espresso machine which further popularized the cappuccino.
  • Mid 1990′s – Cappuccino was made more widely available to North Americans as upscale coffee houses sprang up.
  • Late 1990′s to Early 2000′s – Cappuccinos became popular in the United States concurrent with the boom in the American coffee industry.
  • Start of 21st Century – A modified short-cut version of the cappuccino started being served at fast-food chains.
  • While steaming the milk you must pay close attention to attain the correct ratio of foam, thus making the cappuccino one of the most difficult espresso-based beverages to make properly.
  • A skilled barista may create artistic shapes while he/she is pouring milk on top of the espresso coffee.

Hero of the Week – A brave woman tells a Politician the Truth as Governor Scott gets lectured (Full Video)

Governor Scott gets an earful, Governor Scott gets an earful, Governor Scott gets an earful, Governor Scott gets an earful, Governor Scott gets an earful

Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) received a scalding reception during a visit to a Starbucks in Gainesville, Florida, Tuesday, when a woman confronted him for refusing to expand Medicaid to low-income residents.

“You cut Medicaid, so I couldn’t get Obamacare,” shouted the woman in an exchange. “You’re an asshole. You don’t care about working people. … You should be ashamed to show your face around here.”

Scott has been a vocal opponent of Obamacare, but he has gone back and forth on the Medicaid expansion made possible by the law. In 2012, he said he was against it. Then he shocked people and said he was for it in 2013. But last year, he said he opposes it, arguing that the state could not “take on even more federal programs.”

Stephen Bender shot and uploaded the Starbucks confrontation. He said the woman — whom he identified as Cara Jennings — started out by asking Scott why he signed a bill last month that cuts off state funding for preventive health services to clinics that also perform abortions.

At Starbucks, the governor told the woman that he had created 1 million jobs. But she was not impressed, saying most people these days didn’t have a great job lined up. 

“You strip women of access to public health care. Shame on you, Rick Scott!” she yelled as the governor and his team left the coffee shop. “We depend on those services. Rich people like you don’t know what to do! When poor people like us need health services, you cut them. Shame on you, Rick Scott! You’re an embarrassment to our state.”

What are your thoughts on the situation? Do you think the woman should have handled it differently or did she have the right response with Governor Scott? Also, what would you do if you couldn’t get your coffee as someone is yelling at you? 😦 #ButFirstCoffee

When Rejectuins go Wrong? by Cyphers Den Blog (BLW Contributor)

WHEN REJECTIONS GO WRONG?

If you read my previous entry, then you would have learned a method I tend to use a lot when I really don’t want to be bothered while out at either a nightclub or lounge. [See “Mr. Ass Licker”]  It’s truly sad to have to go through this but at the same time, there are moments where as a woman, you have to use your best judgment.  One thing that I have learned is always to make friends with the establishment’s security or owners.  There’s nothing wrong with being friendly to those whom may be the ones to save your life at the end of the night.

I have heard stories before where a woman would be approached by a male in a club while heavily intoxicated or belligerent.  Naturally reacting, the women would claim to have a significant other.  You would think that this type of answer would turn the men off but this is not always the case.  So what do you do or say when the person still pursues you?  Our second reaction is to give them a wrong number.  What’s wrong with this method?  Well now, guys are getting hip to it and some will go as far as to actually dial the number right there in front of you.  The last thing that you need at this point is for some husky, beefy man to answer the phone and advise the determined man that he has the wrong number.  Why?  Well, a lot of men cannot handle rejection too well (especially if this takes place in front of their boys).  Now they feel embarrassed and will seek retaliation.  

Take the following cases:

Police say a man shot and killed a woman after she rejected his advances at an event in Detroit over the weekend. Five people were also injured during the incident.

Mary Spears, 27, was at the American Legion Joe Louis Post No. 375 on the east side of Detroit when the 38-year-old suspect allegedly approached her and began talking to her, according to WDIV.

When the suspect asked for her number, Spears, whose fiancé was also at the event,told him she was already involved with someone, WJBK reports. The suspect, however, continued harassing her, family members told the station.

Police said security took the man out of the club through the back door and escorted him to the front. After a fight broke out, the suspect allegedly took out a handgun and began shooting, killing Spears around 2 a.m. Sunday.

How scary is that?  

So you tell someone that you’re not interested in one way or another and instead of just taking it with a grain of salt, the person decides that’s not enough.  

What about this story which happened more recently:

Janese Talton-Jackson, 29, was shot and killed Friday morning in Homewood, Pittsburgh after leaving a bar, and the suspect is now in custody after being shot by police.

Officers responded to a ShotSpotter report that detected gunshots at N. Lang Avenue and Upland Street at around 1:50 a.m. During a traffic stop, the police encountered 41-year-old Charles McKinney in a silver vehicle. The authorities received a dispatch stating that a woman had been gunned down in the area, and upon hearing this, McKinney sped off…

Authorities say that the incident began when McKinney attempted to talk to Talton-Jackson at a bar, but when she turned him down and left the bar, he followed her out and shot her in the chest.

So how do you actually go about rejecting someone that you’re not interested in, without becoming a victim to violence?  

When does  “No,” mean “NO“

Leave a comment and let’s discuss this matter.  There are plenty of women who are just not sure what can be said in order to prevent a matter from escalating to this point.  Men, please provide any feedback as well.  Why do you think this happens?

Ciaos!
