The creative writing, observations, experiences, and opinions, on life, and the world around him, by Kiril Kundurazieff; taking one step at a time on the Journey of Discovery, and Enlightenment, that every individual must take from the cradle to the grave.
It took 3 weeks for REI, in Huntington Beach, to get the new Fork delivered, but just a couple of days for the fixes, and Tune-Up, to be done, and I brought her home, earlier in the week, and have since taken her for a couple of short spins.
New Fork, broken spokes replaced, and the chain, and rear crank, replaced, and she rides like when she was a youngster, and not the oldster she is. ;-D
Except when I ride the bus, my bike, or are in a taxi, or car belonging to family, or friends. ;-D
Did this account for my good grades in school.
My eventually giving up Liberalism, and becoming a Conservative?
My talent for Creative Writing, and Poetry?
I don't know, but there is an interesting new stud just released that encourages everyone to walk more so they don't lose their minds. ;-D
"Brain size shrinks in late adulthood, which can cause memory problems. Our results should encourage well-designed trials of physical exercise in older adults as a promising approach for preventing dementia and Alzheimer's disease," said study author Kirk I. Erickson, PhD, with the University of Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh.
The American People, led by concerned citizens, and candidates, of all stripes, but especially Conservatives, and Tea Party supporters, have had enough, and are going to wipe that smile off the face of the President, and Liberals, in, and out, of office, and in Academe, and the Media, by exercising our right to Vote in November, and in 2012.
If you fill out a mail-in ballot at home, or register to vote online at home, why not do so in the Buff?
After all you probably blog in the Buff, or at least in your Pajamas, right?
The Ugly Mug is a wonderful, literary, independent coffee house in Historic Old Towne Orange, Ca. (Known for its Antique Shops, and restaurants, including Watsons Drug & Soda Fountain, established in 1899, it's the oldest drugstore in the OC, and the oldest on-going business in the city of Orange.)
They are nestled on Glassell, between Chapman University on the north, and the Traffic Circle, on the south, which means that, every quarter, when the students do the famous "Thank God it's over!" Undy Run to the Circle, and back, you can visit this intimate setting including a living room area with couches, tables, and a stage, and sit out on an outdoor patio, and watch all the half naked students pass by. ;-D
The rest of the year they feature Live Entertainment, including Open Mic Nights and Poetry Readings, for those who are more adventuresome in their quest for enlightenment, and knowlege. ;-D
Which brings me to the reason for this post.
Regular readers will remember that I did my very first Open Mic reading of my Poetry, in July 2009, at a regular event in Encino.
Well, on Wednesday of this week, I ventured forth to inflict my poetry on an audience much closer to home.
The Ugly Mug plays host, each week, to the long running, extremely popular, Two Idiots Peddling Poetry (Going back to 2001, at least!).
Just who ARE these idiots?
Steve Ramirez hosts this weekly reading series, and is a member of the Laguna Beach Slam Team 2000, as well as one of the organizers of the Orange County Poetry Festival, and member of the Five Penny Poets in Huntington Beach.
Ben Trigg is the co-host, and he apparently does what I, and Nikita, have been attempting to do for 8 years...but far more successfully than us...He works hard to remind people that poetry is often fun, and sometimes silly. ;-D
He has performed throughout SoCal, parts of the NE U.S., and in Texas as part of the Austin International Poetry Festival, as well as being one of the organizers behind the first Orange County Poetry Festival in 2002, as well as subsequent festivals.
While they did not start this event the History is a fascinating one, and can be read on their website.
So there I was, having decided to test the waters for the first time in over a year, now that I finally had a night free that matched when such an even took place somewhere.
The living room area has a adjoining open space where rows of folding chairs allow any overflow audience to sit.
I bought an OJ, paid the $3 admission, signed up for the Open Mic, and settled for one of the couches. ;-D
I soon found myself chatting with a pleasant man, and woman (Name of Martha), who were both older than I.
She had noticed my T-shirt (I'm Strange, Maybe even A Little crazy, But There's Never a Dull Moment!), and when i told her that I had left the more interesting shirt at home she didn't flinch when I told her what it said (A Plug for the blog of my Cat, Nikita - Ask me About My Pussy! ). ;-D
She said she's married an Englishman, and that in England Pussy still referred to a Cat, as it originally did centuries ago.
