Random Dude: You’re Armenian?? But how? Armenians are gross with thick accents and fake nails and they smell like BO and cheap cologne. Did you get a nose job?? Do you wear fake lashes???

Me:…

Me: Are you being serious? Because that’s not funny… and your level of ignorance is tragic.

When I was fostering my brother’s corgi for 6 months, nothing made me more happy than when he pooped or ate food. I wonder if I’m going to think like that as a parent…

I had a cul-de-sac dream once. I don’t quite remember what the dream was but I think it had something to do with people dying of some virus. Sort of like zombie apocalypse type thing. I hadn’t watched anything of that type the day before. Creepy…

Our dreams are in sync… *Twilight Zone theme plays in background*

The woman on the left is a mother from Miami who was so desperate to feed her hungry family that she was trying to steal a lot of food.
The woman on the right is Miami-Dade County Police Officer Vicki Thomas. Officer Thomas was about to arrest Jessica Robles but changed her mind at the last minute.

Instead of arresting her, she bought Robles $100 worth of groceries:
“I made the decision to buy her some groceries because arresting her wasn’t going to solve the problem with her children being hungry.”
And there’s no denying they were hungry. Robles’ 12 year old daughter started crying when she told local TV station WSVN about how dire their situation was:
“[It’s] not fun to see my brother in the dirt hungry, asking for food, and we have to tell him, ‘There is nothing here.’”
Officer Thomas says she has no question that what she did was right:
“To see them go through the bags when we brought them in, it was like Christmas. That $100 to me was worth it.”
But Officer Thomas did have one request:
“The only thing I asked of her is, when she gets on her feet, that she help someone else out. And she said she would.”
And guess what? The story gets even better.
After word got out about what happened people donated another $700 for Jessica Robles to spend at the grocery store.
And then best of all a local business owner invited her in for an interview and ended up hiring her on the spot as a customer service rep.
She started crying when he told her:
“There’s no words how grateful I am that you took your time and helped somebody out. Especially somebody like me.”
And to think it all started with one veteran police officer trusting her “instinct” instead of going “by the book”.

I had a dream that I lived in a house at the end of a cul-de-sac that dead-ended into the LA River. I shared the house with a Mexican family that consisted of a policeman, his kids, and his wife, who was a fortune teller. I mostly helped his wife with her work… She had a bunch of Catholic idols and herbs (to help with clairvoyance) all over the house that I maintained for her.

One day, a giant vulture flew over our house, carrying a live komondor (mop dog) to eat on one of the islands in the LA River, near Hyperion bridge. So as I tried to run out to save the dog, our house cat (who is also one of our resident cats in my actual life) attacked me. By the time I fought her off and made it outside, I saw that the dog had been saved by my sleazy ex-coworker (an older guy in his 50s that tried to ask me out for drinks after he found out I broke up with my fiance)…. Then I woke up.

I don’t even know.

Sometimes, I think do people actually believe this shit that big pharma is trying to shove down our throats, even though it completely defies common sense? 

I met a “public health professional” and UCLA graduate a few years back. I spoke to him about how awful it was that doctors and nurses aren’t required to learn about nutrition, which is the most fundamental part of health, and he said, "Yeah, but we have drugs for just about everything these days, so it doesn’t matter if you like to eat junk food or drink coke every day."

According to the food pyramid-

NO. NO. JUST STOP.

The food pyramid is made to satisfy corporate interests, not actual human nutritional requirements.
