Perfume

BrockaMood Room, RelationshipsLeave a Comment

It’s funny. I’m not a perfume wearer. An occasional spritz. Similar to my lipstick wearing, I’m non committal. Frankly, perfume gags me. Especially the sweet stuff. A man who wears a sweetish cologne vexes me. A man should only smell cloyingly sweet if he’s a baker. I would prefer no person wear any recreational scent, but this blog has already covered pheromones, so I won’t get into it again. Really, a man should smell like a man. I have no problem telling even my mother, ‘yuck, roll the window down’ if we’re riding in the car together. Or calling her ahead and saying ‘I have a headache, please don’t wear perfume’. She’s religious about her use. She’s the one to … Read More

Any Given Sunday

I danced hard this morning, then I brunched well. Long conversations. The graciousness of an ex, my humility in accepting the invitation. It was necessary and familiar and reflective and all that. I really wanted to go on a long walk afterwards. The weather has abruptly cooled (in Dallas) and over the last two days of storms, the sprinkles are still intermittent; so I did the next best thing: grocery shop to my few places, park far out in the lot, then walk and think it out, also, intermittently scanning a list. I’m strung out on mirin in my cooking. If you have a sweet-tooth or sweets eating addiction, it will make you LOVE any vegetable ISwearToGod. It’s essentially sweetened … Read More

My Status is Not Stasis

  This past Sunday my mother and I were driving to visit my grandmother and I got pulled over by a cop. Quite curious since I was obeying the law. It always makes you feel a little anxious regardless. Turns out my inspection sticker has been out for 6 months! Geez, why didn’t I notice? It is usually mailed to me automatically, yearly. Since I have moved, I guess the forwarding address expired too, and the updated one never did arrive. As I’m going on to the cop about my new address excuse (it is old on my driver’s license too), my mother is over there hootin-on: ‘she is my darling daughter’ and ‘this is my model child’. He’s suspiciously … Read More

Mainstream Media Inconsistency

BrockaPolitics, Technology, WorkLeave a Comment

I try to rarely rant on Facebook, because I don’t want to be *that person*, but dammit, this is worthy of more than sounding off. I want to give you some perspective -incase you give no shits about news, politics, media behavior… This is a microcosm example of a much larger problem. Trust me. Rant: The Chinese hacking of Federal Employees is the worst act of espionage in our history and the mainstream media is spending more time on this Ashley Madison website hack. The MSM are mainly immoral liberals who love throwing the lack of values or goodness or anything Christian ideal into the face of the public, further perpetuating their idea that America isn’t the perfect haven comparative … Read More

The Power of Sleep

BrockaBooks, Health & Wellness, Mood RoomLeave a Comment

I don’t even want to write this; probably means I should. Yesterday I started my day at 5 am. Today I attempted to function, not so well, with about 4 hours of inconsistent sleep. Thus, the deficit is REAL! I do not recommend this. I become very negative. my brain hovers over the ‘nots’ and the ‘don’ts’, from the short-fused and impatient place. Do you listen to yourself? Do you know when you are in the right place or the unhealthy place? This is the most extreme example. Sleep-deprivation is the oldest technique in interrogation; the Chinese have known this forever. Coincidentally, todays Delancey Place email is on sleep deprivation, an excerpt out of the book Dreamland: Adventures in the … Read More
