On the old line

  2. For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. But for those of us who can’t readily accept the God formula, the big answers don’t remain stone-written. We adjust to new conditions and discoveries. We are pliable. Love need not be a command nor faith a dictum. I am my own god. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.

  3. Rambling thoughts

    Someone told my mom recently at a Democratic Party event in Kansas that “if someone knows Colin they’re ok, if Colin is paying attention to/ interacting with someone they’re important, and if someone doesn’t fit either of those they aren’t worthwhile (in politics).”

    I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. I’ve never thought of it like that and definitely don’t think of myself that highly as to what makes someone important in young professional politics, but I have noticed more people asking me for advice or help with how to be a campaign person.

    It just feels really weird for me to be a “mentor” to people. I’ve been working in politics for about decade now, I started volunteering on campaigns with my parents at 10 and worked for the State Party at 16, but it’s still weird knowing that most of the people that work for me are my age or older and that the new young up and coming interns are only a few years younger than me and have 1/8 of the experience. Granted most of the people my age or younger think I’m in my 30’s but even the older professionals look at and treat me as one of their peers. It’s all just strange.

    Anyways this has been a brain dump.

  5. 5lb pork roast marinated in Sweet Baby Jesus (peanut butter chocolate) beer, soy sauce, chili powder, brown sugar, and a little liquid smoke for 8 hours. 

Now cooking overnight for about 10 hours with garlic, onions, mushrooms, and a few spices.
