Upturn of events and on changes in perspective

Wednesday, January 27th, 2010

It’s different from where I came from and where I came to. Might seem too obvious, trite perhaps, but it’s true. And I like it. There is that one thing that keeps on  knocking in the back of my head. And it’s not the hot iron I left on, or the fridge door that was left open…

It’s about the one of the most important events of the year, right  after both Solstices, International Women’s Day, and every Wednesday –

The Annual Russian Festival is here! It’s happening this weekend, Friday through Sunday, and serves up dozens of cultural flavors — from pepper vodka to squat dancing. Go, soak it in. Trust me — it’s an eye openner.

S bolshoi lyubovyu,


like never ever before…

Good thing about starting the new year is that you can do everything for the first time. Well, you can tell yourself that it’s the first time this year. It’s in essence the same as prefab ramen noodles – call it seafood mix, if you must, but it’s still tastes like… well, like ramen. But there is that tingling sensation that it’s all so fresh and exciting. It feels good, it promises to be wonderful, and some of us even got presents and  recognition. What a year it will be!

 I am going to skip the whole resolutions bit, since mine has been for years now to get the message out early, and jump straight to business – today’s, January 13, 2009 Puff’n’sip will start promptly @

 5:11 PM @ Harlot, 46 Minna (@ 2nd)

and proceed @

7:03 PM to Cigar Bar and Grill, 850 Montgomery (@ Jackson)

Lotsa love,

Big Red.
