A little baby French bulldog out on a walk just stopped its owner specifically to come over to the outdoor patio table where I’m sitting and be petted by me.

Oops, I’m being super dumb and I don’t care to expand on that right now, but just know that I am really, really dumb and I probably don’t have any business being a member of human society.

Talk to you more about it never because I’m going to go to live in the forest in isolation as a hermit-crone.

Four days in Portland and already watched a Portlandia scene being filmed. And FYI, Carrie Brownstein is remarkably beautiful in person, even when dressed in Portland-Lance drag.

Laffs

I have stayed in what feels like a billion different hotels (plus a couple houses belonging to friends and family members) during the past ten days I have spent driving across the country. And I have two more nights still to go in the final hotel of my little modern-day Oregon Trail journey.

I feel a little wigged out since I don’t officially have a new “home” lined up here yet, and I still don’t feel confident in always knowing exactly which town or time zone I’m currently in… However, I was just flipping through my current hotel’s fancy TV channels, and I came across a channel that appeared to be called “ESPNPENIS.” It turned out to actually be ESPN NEWS, but imagining that penis channel existing and laughing about it while alone in my room might have been the most fun I’ve had in the past ten days.

People silently struggle from all kinds of terrible things. They suffer from depression, ambition, substance abuse, and pretension. They suffer from family tragedy, Ivy-League educations, and self-loathing. They suffer from failing marriages, physical pain, and publishing. The good thing about politeness is that you can treat these people exactly the same. And then wait to see what happens. You don’t have to have an opinion. You don’t need to make a judgment. I know that doesn’t sound like liberation, because we live and work in an opinion-based economy. But it is. Not having an opinion means not having an obligation. And not being obligated is one of the sweetest of life’s riches.

:D ( <—- me while reading this and having my politeness choices validated. I’m not fulfilling the perfect polite-game or anything, but I’m getting there)

How to be Polite

Honestly, from the first time I saw this as a really young kid, this always has been (and I think still is) my very favorite Robin Williams thing.
