The Dalai Lama

The Dalai Lama
Originally uploaded by MaggieMason.

I had to stay home and work this weekend, but Bryan and his sister worked at the Dalai Lama's meeting with several religious scholars in San Francisco. I spent the morning writing, and walked over to meet them. The hotel lobby was filled with people in festive dress and a few long-haired guys in trance states. Bryan ushered me through security, and opened the ballroom door. And there, right in front of me, was the Dalai Lama. My life is weird.

4.11.06 PERFECT
What went right:

-We woke up early, got dressed, and went outside.
-It was sunny and warm for the first time in ages, and the New York Times was on the stoop.
-We climbed in our little orange car, and drove for breakfast in the Mission.
-There was a metered parking spot right out front.
-We didn't have to plug the meter, because it was Sunday.
-There was no wait for the table.
-The coffee came right away.
-There was melted cheese.
-In amongst all the grape jellies, there was one strawberry left.

4.10.06 MAGGIE MASON, STUFF EXPERT
The San Jose Mercury News recently interviewed me for "Stylish Musings" an article about bloggers who like stuff, and share their passion for stuff with the Internet. A hefty hunk of the article is about Mighty Goods, so go take a peek.

4.7.06 CUTE! SUPER CUTE!
Here's how I know my ovaries are working: I find these clothespin dolls from The Small Object a little magical. I want to be a kid again so I can own several of them without being the odd chick who collects clothespin-doll art and eats too much chocolate.

4.6.06 THE LITTLE THINGS
I'm with Sarah on the annoying nature of the "Up with Grups" cover story in New York magazine. It's not that I care whether 35 year olds buy expensive jeans, or own iPods loaded with Cat Power, and the Drive by Truckers, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. I don't even care if they'd rather raise their kids on a steady diet of They Might Be Giants and dress them in tiny ironic tees.

It's more how the article keeps insisting that adults wearing cool clothes and listening to current music somehow "erases the generation gap." Oh no, honey. If you're not twenty, people know that. You know who knows it most of all? The twenty year olds. They can taste it on the air.

And though urban adults listen to the same music, and wear the same clothes, and buy pot from the same dealer, very few of them are trying to hang with the undergrad set. We may be at the same concert, but please. We have completely different Dodgeball lists.

4.4.06 WHAT THE KIDS ARE CALLING THEM
I am asleep and having a sex dream. It is Girls-Gone-Wild-esque, save one key element. Everyone in the dream, including me, is a mathematician.

I am amongst a handful of bikini-clad girls standing atop a boat. We are laughing and holding small white boards. The guys in the crowd are raising their beer bottles and screaming, "Show us your solutions! Show us your solutions!"

Russell Banks grew up in, "a blue-collar world ... where the idea of being a writer was like the idea of being a butterfly."

Add Junebug to your Netflix queue. It's excellent.
