I’m still feeling frustrated with humanity..some of which I know..and most of which I don’t.
I’m having a problem “digesting” peoples actions and thoughts, especially when they seem entirely motivated by selfishness and greed.
I don’t understand how people can not think of others..of the person standing right next to them. It’s almost as if, in order to avoid the grenade blowing up in Their hands, they hand it to, or hide it in the bag of the person who is standing right beside least it’s NOT me that has to deal with that!
I don’t understand how people..some of whom I know…most of whom I don’t, can be so self-centered.

I guess I should shut up and just look forward to this for me!

My fortune today:

You have a reputation for being straightforward and honest"

-especially when I'm PMS-ing!

My girlfriend and I saw this movie last night. Although I don’t normally care for Robin Williams, I think he did a great job playing a disturbed, sad and lonely man.
The cinematography was my favorite part however.

Although I still have stressful dreams about work, it does afford me an opportunity to communicate with some people who have made a change in this world.

Aries Horoscope for week of October 10, 2002

Jungian analyst Arnold Mindell is a pioneer in exploring the relationship between mind and body. He believes you can achieve optimum physical health if you're devoted to shedding outworn self-images. Want to feel really good? "Continuously drop all sorts of rigid identities," he says. Kate Bornstein, author of Gender Outlaw, agrees. Raised as a male, she later changed into a female, but ultimately renounced gender altogether. "I love being without an identity," she says. "It gives me a lot of room to play around." Few of us can manage this level of commitment to staying fresh. But we all go through phases when it's easier to pull off than at other times. That's exactly where you are now, Aries. For inspiration, read Break the Mirror, a book of poems by a wandering fool with no worldly goods, Nanao Sakaki.

A man came into my work this morning and told me he needed lawyer information and referrals. He then went on to tell me he needs this information because a neighbor of his helped the police break into his house, which he has on film (he had the tape in his hand as he was talking to me). Then he said it must just be that he was in the wrong place at the wrong time, and he informed me that he was being followed as we spoke.

I wonder if what he claims is actually true.

Anything is possible.

There was a fund raiser held here at The Center last night for Gov. Grey Davis. When I first started working with the event holder, I had no idea what attention and press this would generate. Call me silly, but I didn’t realize he would actually be here!!
We took a lot of heat because he declined a bill regarding gender/domestic partnership benefits we thought he would pass. But, that is our roll…to create a safe place for people to vocalize their views and opinions. Even if we don’t agree with them.
I understand there were a lot of protesters here, and the police were guarding the front doors to the building.
I’m torn….
Which asshole should I vote for…?

The person I was filling in for for 3 weeks just sent out the following email:

I would like everyone to know that I will be leaving The Center (exact last day to be determined, but will be between Oct. 30-Nov. 4 or so).

I have resigned so I can move to Seoul, South Korea and continue pursuing the family matters that I began during my most recent trip there. This is something that needs to take full priority over everything else, and I will be gone anywhere from 5 months to a few years.

I had a meeting with my boss already planned in order to discuss what my job would entail now that I was no longer covering for the above mentioned person. I was told of this person’s departure in that meeting. I feel that the ED, and my other boss would like me to stay in the position I’m in due to the multitasking abilities I have (who said that??!). The ED told me he felt it a great assistance when I schedule meetings for him and the Development Director. Plus, I think feels that I can be trusted with confidential information.
I do however know that the room rental position is required. That position has more security than any other, including the ED.
Guess I have to decide how I’d like to proceed…

The threat against us is Bush.
Not those he tried to throw at us.
