    trust me, i know im lucky 

    , it might be God’s way of telling me the Cubs are forever doomed

    i had some of the most interesting dinners this week with a variety of people.

    on Tuesday i dined with a ucsb gaucho who basically taught me that indeed i pre-judge people foolishly and would probably be better off knocking that ish off.

    people are dying to break molds. its what we do. white rappers, black presidents, jews for jesus.

    so throughout the week i did my best to just let the people be who theyre gonna be with a concerted effort to notice when i was prejudging instead of being open.

    because im a ridiculously flawed man this wasnt easy but i must say it was a great week, kicked off by a random encounter that woudnta happen if it wasnt for the fond feelings i have for my alma matter. and the moxie of a young lady.

    last night was even better than that, and tonight im being treated to the stand up comedy of ms kathy griffin where i am told they serve nachos. with cheese.

    all i ask is that this good fortune continues through monday when the bears appear on national tv on monday night football versus the minnesota vikings outside in the cold, snow, and ice.
