Travis Smith: my resume, bio and photos back to the main blog page

I got an odd Website request today. This is true and unedited.

My name is Nicki Clark, I am a home school liasion worker at Mulgrave Primary school in woolwich SE18. I am also secretary the PTA.
We are at the moment talking to the children in years 5 and 6 about Hygenie, body odour and how to look after our own body.

We were wondering if you could help us with this by donating samples of your deoderant to give to the children, both boys and girls.
We would then try to promote your product and ecourage the children to purchase their own deoderant.

I hope you don’t mind me writing to you in this way.
Thank you very much for your time.
Regards, Nicki Clark
Mulgrave Primary School & EYC, Woolwich, London, SE18 5DL

So, um, well… No.  NO, I’m not going to send my “Musk” deoderant across the Atlantic to teach English children how not to smell.  They’ll have to learn it the way my friend Tim did, by wondering why no one want to change next to him in the locker room.

“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

...who said it?

“I play with variables constantly.”

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”
