Bar Stool Brilliance

Unfortunatly though, I actually adhere to this intoxicating school of thought more frequently.There is something so liberating about avoiding common sense and functional functionalism.

Pondering the Perpetual Procrastination Antidote

So accomplishments for this week include nothing also known as nil and bordering on for naught.

Also found this old quote( manually glittered for the think pink initiative) on a paper snipping that was actually on my computer at my longest cubicle curriculum stay.It was originally part of a jewish thought thing that someone forwarded me from his Rabbi.
I always did like Pirkei Avos.Its awesome for peppering conversations with ,especially with religious folks who dont expect you to be peppering your thoughts and comments with Ethics of the Fathers quoting......The featured quote though could work nicely for procrastination issues.
The question is how to go about tweaking the prescription so that obtaining this level of Hillesque living would sort of be attainable.

Lucky Flavored Alcohol

Is the whole concept of Luck
based on anything tangible or fixable other than stars in an inky sky ,
that were present at birth .
Who or what determines the negative or positive flavor of luck . Does skill influence chance .Do you need both to get lucky at Lucky's in Point Pleasant NJ ? Does the name of the town have any say in the matter of what goes on a luck level on its boardwalks ?

Is luck force fed ,or can you choose your luck and what you want your's mixed with. Can you choose how cold or warm / hard or soft / high or low you wanna go? Is it bar or town specific like if you got to the hardcore Irish bars some of them dont have no flavored vodkas just hardcore unflavored vodkas but the more trendy kind of bars like Dave and Busters have the most awesome flavored vodka drink mixes among other flavored alcohol mixes with equally impressive names and descriptions.

My favorite luck story involves a spontaneous weekend in King of Prussia PA. We just picked a random roadtrip destination with a Sheraton to spend a weekend in and a town to explore.Luck was apparently in a really good mood we were right next to the most awesome house of drink and food . They even had a real gazebo with candles and awesome sunset and sunrise views and unobscured views of the King of Prussia main highway .It was at that moment that I knew that Bahama Breeze would totally become my favorite drinking spot in the world other than Peculiar Pub in the village, but they are both totally different moods.Bahama Breeze has the most awesome frozen alcoholic drink mixes perfect for breakfast lunch and dinner substitutes and in between snacks.King of Prussia is a hazy happy memory of really good frozen alcholic drinks awesome sunsets and fireworks displays misssing and an awesome melting ice sculpture and endless hours of hyper happy laughing with roadtripping friend and drinking and highway walking in weaves of laughter sooo much fun .

Peculiar Pub in the village is my other favorite place also found by sheer luck. One of my drinking buddies introduced this place to me and I've had sooo many good talks on the wooden tables with friends and strangers. I just love the general decor and rhythm of the place .They have the most awesome selection of beers from all of the world and they are light enough so you can drink a whole menu of different flavors and not really get too drunk.And the bottles function as the perfect vases on so many levels .

Pollyana's Pick

So if Pollyana had a favorite flower , considering aesthetics and general outlook , I'm guessing it probally would have been the sunflower. Sunflowers just give off that everything will be florally ok aura .And it does have that larger than (floral) life image thing goin on with the everpresent sunny yellow disposition .You almost expect the lovely bloom to break out in an Optimistic Opal song of sunshine and eternal hope singing high above the other floral arrangements ....... Muddied in a world of weeds and Autumn flowers like chrysanthemums which are depressing by mere association of the weather they usually dress up for in their broody colors/ shades and hues of burgundy ,wine, cinnamon gold , ruby red and a semi jaded purple. Autumn is distinctly depressing, up to and including the spent petulant petals of gardens gone by and the perpetual trail of lifeless /loveless leaves consistently losing their balance on the branches of life and falling faster as the air gets colder and brittle with cloudy winter warnings.

How Jaded will you Jade

So I'm walking down one of the many NYC East side avenues with my brilliantly tart & astoundingly erudite buddy ..... completely enraptured in the rapidity of the give and take defining aimless direction , repentance & side effects. And there on the corner in all its faded glory stood the boarded up remains of the "Jade Lounge". How does the Jade Lounge become a boarded up spent wooden structure with only a limited amount of wooden letters to tell the story of the past. Sort of like a makeshift tombstone without any extra specifics other than a name. How easy is it to just close up shop or lounge or bar..... board up the windows to the soul and leave the sign up for good luck and move on for more exciting street corners or cubicles or situations.I've done that so many times sometimes i wonder how healthy it really is .Is there some kind of cumulative side effect thats only felt a couple of years later ...... Its sooo hard to really know when to move on when to try and make things work,when to fix, when to run the other way ,begins to feel like the proverbial game of roullette a game i was never really that good at. Red or black or in this case brown or oak and youve got the green for some sidetracking in case ure feeling especially lucky like some google searchers tend to feel. Its like if you dont work on the structure you have two choices move on or move on and leave the sign up.Or you can re-do the structure and open up a whole new lounge with new lounge furniture and brand new friends and lovers . and a whole different drink mix offering with new names and all the new flavored vodkas . And maybe an in-house care bear to assist the patrons on an as needed basis.For some reason none of my personal figuretive street corners are worth re-doing or working hard on .I havent chosen the wisest street corners to set up shop in .It may have something to do with the fact that I'm spiritually colorblind and stuff.Also way too distracted by humor.I need to think bout the pros and cons before I just settle on a cubicle corner to focus and work for and in .Until then I think i can just make a career out of tanning at the Jersey Shore until the sparkling sun goes down and crystal clear but cold winter sets in .
