I've been reading a lot of articles that suggest ways in which I can become 'insanely productive'. While doing so, I realize that my time is being taken up by reading, and I'm not being productive at all.

Also, I think I've figured out how to post pictures on DW, perhaps will start doing so!
I don't like clowns, not because of any creepy factor, but because I don't want to be suddenly made part of their "shows", not ever. The thought of some stupid prank to be played on my shy person for the benefit of awful kiddies makes me itchy.

CNN did a bit on clowns.

Did my redesigned walking route today, had to pass the Comox Pentecostal Church, which I did rapidly. Judging from the parking lot, the place looked busy, and I didn't want to be around when they're calling down The Spirit, or what ever it is they like to do.

Also tried a mobile app that counts steps. Don't really need it, since I'd long ago figured that in my case, 4 miles equals a little more than 10,000 steps.
Thinking about the orangeness of Trump. It came to mind the time my Dad was into tanning gimmicks. First he tried this product called QT (Quick Tan), a lotion that one rubs on. Problem was he didn't do it right, and came out a variety of tones, in swirly designs. Then he started taking tanning pills, which rendered him a uniform brick orange.

That was one strange colour, for a dentist.
A great fire to commemorate the anniversary of the Great Fire of London was performed on the Thames.

From British paper, The Telegraph.

"SIR – The way to avoid slopping a full pint glass is to slide it carefully to the edge of the bar, where you can then lower your lips to sip enough of the contents to allow it to be carried.
This looks ungainly. If in select company, however, you wouldn’t have ordered the sort of drink which comes in a pint glass anyway.

Pagan Pride busted out today in the Comox Valley!

Once again, I saw hair of every possible colour. I couldn't unsee tie-dyed clothes, all the way from t-shirts to sarongs to one-piece underwear. Fairy wings and fake flower garlands and unicorn horns on girls.

Chakras were being thoroughly laundered. Patrons of a service were being absolutely vibrated.

A folk singer who wrestled with channelling Stevie Nicks and Kate Bush.She was pretty good, I must admit, but kept me guessing.

I was pleased to see that Heathens were represented by The Troth at a booth/table/place by the Syrian food truck.

It was a good day. If that singer is present next year, and grooving, I may take over the open space in front of the stage and start dancing. If so, I may post video.
I still think Donald ought to have picked Gene Simmons as VP. The Donald and The Demon, has a ring to it.
I'm bemused at how people classify what (really, little) they know about the orientations of other people. Example, if you have a guy who has never been known to have had a 'girlfriend', or never had a 'successful' relationship with a woman, he's dropped into the file marked Gay.

Why, he must be gay! That's all there is to it!
--> Why do parents, particularly male parents, have to address infants in a squeaky toned, make-up language? I see it time and again on You Tube vlogs, and I reach for the Stop button speedy quick.

Trump keeps saying, "...believe me...", and I don't.
Today, I saw one of those message signs done up old-fashioned looking, emblazoned with the thoughtlet:

"Dreams won't work unless you do."

Smart people know this.

Darkroom

Just read in an article of what a "darkroom" is in the worlds of gays. A sort of sex playroom, I assume adjunct to bars. I was expecting to read about developing photos! Heh...
This afternoon, I was in attendance at the blood donation clinic, first time in over thirty years. Got partway through the screening process, we reviewed my meds list, and I was disqualified on basis of two of my meds. Since I'm on them permanently, that's it for me.
