Busy, rainy week. Short column today.
ANNALS OF CONSUMER DISAPPOINTMENT: the little avocados at Grocery Outlet are no longer reliable. At least half of them have rotten spots. You can cut around them, but really…Worse was the surprise that came from a box of Marcelli’s spinach ravioli purchased at Murphy’s. I buy the meat ravioli for a quick meal every now and then (quick, not cheap- $5.99 for a hefty serving for one) but I hadn’t bought the spinach variety. I found them to be tasteless and watery and, worse of all, the ravioli fell apart while being simmered and about a million little pieces of spinach were floating around. Definitely unappetizing. The meat ones have damn little meat in them but at least they stay together. Their meat sauce, on the other hand, is celestial.
JARED AND GOD: the biggest non-event of the past several weeks was Jared Huffman’s declaration that he is a humanist, or at least a non-Christian. I’m glad he “came out”. I’m sure nobody cares. I’m sure not-being-Christian is no longer a disqualifier for public office. I keep wondering, WHEN WILL RON REAGAN RUN FOR OFFICE?? Our most famous atheist is sharp as a tack, well-spoken, and appears irregularly on MSNBC. Run, Ron, run! I’ll donate.
IS THIS TRUE?? According to the New Yorker, Nov 13, 2017, “According to a Pew survey…nearly eighty per cent of liberals like the idea of living in a dense neighborhood where you can walk to to shops and schools, while seventy-five per cent of conservatives would rather live in a larger house with more space around it.”
Which mental illness, of the many demonstrated by our Fake President, causes him to have to belittle everything and everyone who preceded him? His bragging that everything he does is “the greatest”, “the biggest”, or “the best” is putting everyone to sleep. And I am going back to sleep right now. What else do you do on a rainy Monday in November? Have a good holiday.
