Pride; let me show you it.

Speaking of Pride... I'm a Pride Safety Team Monitor for San Francisco.

We need, oh, about 200 new people to join the Pride Safety Team, so that it's totally safe, because seriously, people love us and it's us or the cops.

As it stands now, the cops only respond when our people radio in a request for assistance, so we need friendly people who literally, want to be in the parade, who like bopping about with small teams and who like being friendly to oh, hundreds of thousands of LGBTQ people who rely on us to make it look fun while keeping everything safe. We don't just work the Celebration, we make sure it stays a celebration, and get those who're in need, the need they need. And we get fed and watered and have our own bathrooms.

Teams: Friends, bring your friends!! The shifts are just four hours and we have a special, special power: We write down who to donate our volunteer hours to, from a list of community groups, these groups then split the pot of money that Pride raises for just this purpose. So we have rainbow fun and then get to toss the gold to those of our choosing, and they get thousands of dollars from a very small group of people.

200 newly trained volunteers. C'mon, it's a really good bouncy time amidst a very seriously needed thing we're doing.

What Gives?.

A little something on espresso

Vegan. Caesar Dressing. But it has soy, and yeast and oil, so if you're not already healthy, it's not so healthy for you.

A box, a special box. A cardboard and plastic oven.
Note the bit about a Charcoal making device? I think the cardboard box beat out this.

Needle distribution. Colorado struggles with it. Since California is further along, Oakland has PoD.

About those college loans; can you show me a little love?

The Immigration issue starts to move from the back burner...

News, Journalism, and the web.

Seriously, we know of no one looking for a nice place to live in the East Bay?


Craig's List ad

C'mon, at these prices, someone working retail/restaurant could nail the rent and be loving livin' in a *house*.

Specialty chocolatier shop is closing

Josehph schmidts is closing their doors in S.F.

Their staff is sad, they're closing June 30th, they're having sales.

h/t to [ profile] fd_midori

If you're in the East Bay, you might want to check out Sharffen Bergers, as they're in the same situation, but I don't know their closing date.

I just hope there's a location which can take them on. Perhaps Ghiradelli could now expand into more specialties and hire on the above staff. Ghiradelli co. is union run, at least.

Crackerjack box

The laptop has been giving me this nasty message, saying there were disk repairs to be done, that I had to reinstall the OS. *sigh* Nope. Cleaned it up, which took awhile 'cause I did the desktop as well. What's this all mean? Forgot to sleep.

The streets of San Francisco: All our cops have been trained to charge into a crack house & Riot Control by the Feds Some places, they just call in the MIL, when they need riot control
. Samson, Alabama may want to let its hair grow out just a little more; Using the Mil on the streets of the U.S. of A., is actually a crime.

What would you do, with your main drag?

Top of the block, they've gone Upscale for the Square

Don't look at me, I don't think of those numbers as rent, I look at them as mortgage.

Speaking of Sci-Fi numbers, the owners of Star Trek are being sued for royalties.
Just how hard is it, to pay your people? Talk about Intellectual Property.

Not sure why this is better than Craig's list, but if you have something to say, you could make out like a Block Captain.

Wires cross; it's in their nature to do so.

Cat Fence: Keeping your cat the indoor/outdoor cat they've always wanted to be. The over hanging fruit, is really all about the over hanging fencing.

If you want to have a church meeting, have it at Church. Be careful though, many churches let non believers attend as well.

Cliff house;still strawberries on the way down.

Know someone who was affected by the Maddoff Ponzi scheme? The I.R.S. is looking to help them out a bit.

This is not for you if you've had a bad day today.

It's especially not for you if anyone you know has gone through surgery.

So, here's a "Unicorn moment" in the form of a TED video

If I'm improperly taxed, can I get out of my cellphone contract?

90% of Verizon bills are improperly taxed.

Now I have to figure out the line of argument to get out of the contract early, to avoid their early termination fees.

It's never a one liner, it's always one thought used with whoever picks up the call, again with their supervisor and then again with whoever returns the call, as they push it to someone else. Each time more points have to be brought up.

Moog... But, worth it.

Sometimes I forget where I put my keys down

So, you know, this is understandable, Mr. Phelps.

It's only the instructions for how to put together a nuclear warhead. It's good to know, that we could actually forget how to make "nukes".

Oh, and only if you want to read phunny commentary and follow the links the author provides, does this get funnier and funnier. I know, who has that much time on their hands, but it is gigglesome.
