I recently had an nteresting experience at Char's Thai on 5th st in Tucson, AZ:

We ordered over the phone and received the wrong dish (we ordered #73 and received #23). We called and were told we could come back to get a replacement dish. We went to pick it up, and were asked to bring back the old order. We went home and returned again with the old order. The staff opened the box and had a discussion which ended with "No, we can't sell that, throw it away". To top it all off, after all that trouble, we were charged a $1.50 price difference for the new food.

Apparently they re-sell food that is taken home and returned: I found that a bit shocking.
Is that illegal..?
And it was not pleasing to be charged extra after being put through so much inconvenience.
Also, the food is okay, but far from the best Thai food I've had. My favorite Thai dish is usually the cashew chicken (with tofu), but at this restaurant it tasted much different and not nearly as good as I'm used to.
 
 
Isn't it nice to sit out under the stars at night?
How did humans keep track of time before grid-calendars were invented?
I think a lunar-based Sabbath makes a lot of sense.

Cults are such nasty things...

These people will be very nice to you, and act like they want to be your best friends and your new family, until you don't agree to worship a woman in South Korea as God. Then you are good as dead to them - actually worse, they assume you're going to Hell. I figure they are in Hell already, slaving their lives away making $ for these psychos in South Korea. It's really sad and gross.

No school today. We built a fort and sat in it and watched "Wild Things".

I also finished this awesome crocheted "spectrum pillow case".
May make up a tutorial for this one... it's really easy, and really cool.

Just completed updating all of my baby bootie patterns. The instructions are cleaned up and simplified, and there are LOTS of nice quality photos included in the patterns. Yay! ♥

All of the patterns are listed on the Patterns section of this website, however the Ravelry pages include a lot more detail. For anyone who doesn't yet have a Ravelry account I highly recommend the website - it is very useful! If you purchase a pattern from the site it will be saved to your account so that if you ever lose your copy you can re-download the file. You will also be able to download updates for free. The site has a HUGE inventory of patterns, both free and for purchase. You can share your projects as well as list your own designs. Ravelry is awesome!!
 
 
Picture
I remember in Robert Monroe's books about his out-of-body explorations (don't remember which book - "Journeys out of Body" or "Ultimate Journey"), he visited a possible future for humanity/earth - which I thought was so beautiful. There weren't very many humans, only a few. Viewing the earth from above, there were some beautiful arrangements of trees/plants - like ornate gardens, but most of the earth looked natural and wild. The humans were found sitting up against trees in a state of rest most of the time - they only awoke and acted when they had a function to perform in the "garden".

I found that to be such a beautiful picture. Sounds like the Garden of Eden, really.
However, the movie Mr. Nobody made a really good point about the beauty of birth, mortality and death - I highly recommend that movie as well.

Check out "Back to Eden" - a short yet beautifully inspiring documentary about a man in Washington who discovered the wonderful benefits of using wood chips as mulch, and his religious realizations which go along with that discovery.


The reason I love permaculture - not only does it encompass the solutions to our modern ecological problems, it is laying the groundwork for reestablishing paradise on earth - I do believe the inspiration is heaven sent <3.

the brain and the senses
This afternoon I watched the movie "Perfect Sense". It was about human beings (worldwide) losing their senses one by one. Smell... taste... hearing... eyesight... feeling...
as they lose the senses, they go through intense emotional experiences of grief, rage, etc.
At the end of the movie all that is left is the feelings & thoughts of two lovers.. the world apparently disappearing from them.

With all sensory experience gone, would there be anything left?
<3


Profound movie.

Rating: 4/5

"Questioner: You keep on saying that I was never born and will never die. If so, how is it that I see the world as one which has been born and will surely die?
Maharaj: You believe so because you have never questioned your belief that you are the body which, obviously, is born and dies. While alive, it attracts attention and fascinates so completely that rarely does one perceive one's real nature. It is like seeing the surface of the ocean and completely forgetting the immensity beneath. The world is but the surface of the mind and the mind is infinite. What we call thoughts are just ripples in the mind. When the mind is quiet it reflects reality. When it is motionless through and through, it dissolves and only reality remains. This reality is so concrete, so actual, so much more tangible than mind and matter, that compared to it even diamond is soft like butter. This overwhelming actuality makes the world dreamlike, misty, irrelevant."

mooncake from Lee Lee's
I found these things called "Moon Cakes" at a local (Tucson) asian market called "Lee Lee's". I bought a couple varieties - some were more simple (just sweet and doughy), but these ones in the photo were quite a pleasant surprise - filled with an extravaganza of nuts and seeds and dried fruit.

Really neat and delicious... seriously one of the coolest things I have ever eaten. I bet it would be a fun thing to learn to bake and get creative with the ingredients!
