« on: September 19, 2010, 02:44:28 pm »
Hanging on my wall sits a framed copy of my Bodhisattva vows, Taking It off the wall to give it a dust down It manages to fall down the back of the radiator escaping all reach  :smack:
All this would have to happen after I come back from a teaching on the Non virtues of anger. Are you testing me mara ?  :eek:

Warning: I'm enough of a fundamentalist Tibet style Buddhist to believe that for the last 1,000 years Tibet has produced a handful of enlightened masters in every generation. I do not ask that YOU believe it, but it will greatly simplify conversations if you understand that about me. Thanks.

Well, if this is the biggest anger issue you have, you are indeed fortunate. :)

Oh, sure, listen to the SoCal Gal.   :cheesy:  Rub it in why dontcha.

Yes, some of us live outside the Mediterranean climate zone.  :D

Radiators are the norm in the UK in my experience.  In the north, at least, they can be called upon in the summer when nights occasionally get quite chilly.

Lost the keys to my scooter/ motorcycle. Hired a locksmith to make a new set of keys, at huge expense. Turns out the original keys were locked inside the scooter's underseat storage...  :brick:

Once I was making mac and cheese, and decided to go for maximum time efficiency. When it came time to make the sauce I picked up the envelope of cheese powder and gave it a good shake down before opening it. Trouble was, I had forgotten that a few minutes prior I had saved a few seconds by tearing the top off ahead of time. Yep, and I picked it up by the wrong end too.

The 'cj' part of my username is from a drunk episode of loosing my keys at a bar. The entire company was there and I was trying to find my keys by crawling around through the crowd looking for them with a flashlight in my mouth. The bosses were playing pool and saw this weird light flickering through people's legs and saw people getting jostled. As I broke through the edge of the crowd my immediate superior grabbed his head and said, "Oh my God! It's one of my guys!"

That was almost 20 years ago and they still call me Crawlin' John at work.

BTW I never did find my keys and slept in a doorway in a seedy part of town that night.

I am serving a dana meal to the monks tomorrow. Because it is a two hour drive, I cook the food the night before, and heat it up when I get to the hermitage. I made vegetarian tacos. I put some frozen falafel balls into the microwave to defrost them. When I opened the microwave door a couple of minutes later... The plastic container had melted, and the falafel balls had become rock hard.

They used to say that the meal offering Cunda made to the Buddha was a little hard to digest, then Monkey Mind came along!  For centuries Sutta scholars will be debating whether it was the melted plastic that was the food offering or the undescribable rock-hard balls.

Maybe such food should be served with an accompaniment:




LOL :)

I reckon this one would be a more fitting accompaniment for that type of meal:
