A Visit to the Big Seattle Boat Show!
Kevin Hellriegel's Blog of Worthless Advice
Sometimes I come up with some odd ideas on what I should be doing with my life. Last summer, I had the strange notion that I should be a yacht salesperson. I honestly thought it would be a fun and glorious summer job. Sitting at my desk at the marina, the sun shining outside, the wind gently blowing, and the yachts gleaming outside. Rich people would just stop by, I’d take them out for a test cruise, and I’d sell a yacht a day.
Luckily, my laziness and my desire to enjoy myself kept me from a life of khaki slacks, boat shoes, and washing seagull crap off some yacht on Lake Union.
Instead of becoming a boat salesman, my son and I went to the Big Seattle Boat Show yesterday. Now, I haven’t been to a boat show since I was a kid so this was both a blessing…

Valentines Day 2016
Hi there! I was looking at some old photos in my phone looking to create something for February 14th. A look that I think is easy and of course one I have done before. I’m aiming for a bold red, burgundy, or soft pink lip. Thoughts? Here are some photos below:
Much love, Gigi
Nascence Of Darkness
Nascence Of Darkness
Ceremonial bell tolls reverberate in suspense
While a flock of ravens sweep the murky skies
The mental state of the land is glaringly tense
As the caws of the crows create eerie lullabies
Unearthly howls reverberate through the Earth
Ceaselessly raping the ears of all those living
This dark eve will cast forth the a sadistic birth
Of the creatures that run all of Hell unforgiving
Zombies will seize the bodies of the deceased
Ghouls will torment all lost souls as examples
Werewolves will help more souls be released
As Vampires do nosh each being as sampled
A New Dark Era on Earth is now soon to begin
With the Creatures of Darkness harvesting Sin

The Year(s) of Living Non-Judgmentally
Are you suspicious of

- your beliefs?
- other people’s beliefs?
- the internet?
- what other people tell you?
- the unknown?
- cultural norms?
- your own dreams?
- things that are too good to be true?
Be suspicious about other people listing your possible suspicions. What are you suspicious of?
Be suspicious about what inspires my post titles, which is often something I’ve seen the day before.
Be suspicious of other people telling you what to do.
I tend to be suspicious of
- harshly critical thoughts
- cognitive distortions (a suspiciously complete list of those is here)
- easy answers
- phony smiles
- people who don’t listen
- rigidity, and
- too much suspicion.
Be suspicious when…

Saga Saturday III Alice Walker
It’s another Saturday time for another great Saga
My pick for this week is:
(Click any picture of title for more info.)
“The Color Purple“
This is a classic southern tale of friendship/family and hardship. I love story about sisterhood, I myself have 4, so I can relate. Alice Walker has captured a depth of character in her female protagonist, that is empowering. She is an amazing writer, and has written a very important piece of literature. “The Color Purple” won the Pulitzer Prize in 1983 (the year I was born.)
Rated: 4.4 on amazon.com
Book Bean:Sweet Tea
This tea is good hot too but is traditionally consumed iced.
In a large glass measuring cup, place 6 tea bags and 1/8 tsp baking soda. Pour 2 cups boiling water over the tea bags. Cover and steep for 15 minutes. Take out the tea bags and do not squeeze them. Pour the tea mixture…
