All I have to say is Mini better watch out. Someone else is moving in on my heart.
Oh it's like that is it?
You're just going to go run off with the fist nubile, young authoress that bats her eyes at you. I see how it is.

Toby x Boss Lady
I love California right now.
Sunday, I went and obtained a medical marijuana card which means when Aunt Flo comes to taunt me I'll be able to go to any of the dispensary conveniently located right here in my neighborhood and pick up my little remedy and beat my cramps into submission in a perfectly legal manner the way god intended.
The whole scene that has popped up around Oaksterdam, which this neighborhood has now been dubbed has really picked up since medical marijuana has been leagalized for sale in dispensarys. Most of which have coffee shop fronts. From what I've been reading, since these places have been open shopkeepers around the area have been reporting more business and less crime.
Going into one is an interesting experience. After I got my paperwork on sunday I of course wanted to go try it out. The two places I knew about were closed on sunday but I tracked one down. From the outside it looks like any coffee shop where artist types would hang out. There was a three man band playing on the sidewalk in front, very nice.
Once inside a cheerful gentleman greeted me at the door and asked for my papework and ID and then if was off I go to a room in the back. On the counter they had a book with samples you could look at along with a list of edibles. They had candy, butter, carmel popcorn, cheesecake and various other baked goods. I really wanted to try the truffles but at $40 a box I'll have to wait a bit. It was surreal I must say. Everybody was so nice and cheerful there. I wonder if they're hiring.
Despite the obvious reason for having a card being cool I wonder if there's perhaps some kind of underground art scene in the cannibis community I'll have to look into that. Plus I feel like I'm part of history. California is the first state in the US to have a medical marijuana law where you can just go and buy it at a desinated place. Now sick people don't have to go to bad parts of town to get their medicine and risk being ripped off.
Hey, I think that candy bar is kicking in.
