Table with yellow teapot and cloth embroidered with blue flowers

Welcome to the tea and fortune parlor.  This used to be a feature at Street Prophets, when Street Prophets was a separate website.  Think of it as the horoscope column and agony aunt section of your newspaper, all rolled into one.  It is also a party tent, and since this is a holiday, why not have a party?  I don't know about you, but I had a hard month last month, and I am in the mood to have some fun.

Step into the tent.  Inside, it is whatever you want it to be.  there is a Samovar on that table as well as plates and plates of cookies.  The grill is over there.  Who wants to man the grill?  Volunteers?

Now that we have the catering handled, let us get down to the business at hand.  Ask a question, any question, and I will try to give you a reading.  Of course, I will be making it up.  But that's okay!  It will be fun!  The best part is that I will be charging a fee for your reading.  The fee will vary depending upon your question.  It might be to make someone smile.  It might be to take some time for yourself.  It might be to give five bucks to your favorite progressive candidate's campaign.  Or, to help an elderly neighbor with a chore.  I don't know!  It all depends on what you ask.

Anyone in the tent make it for reading for anyone else, as long as they charge a suitable fee.  Follow my lead.  You will get the hang of it!

As always, post your favorite links in the comments below. Tell us about your day. What is for dinner? What are your plans for the holiday weekend? Make yourselves comfortable and let us have some fun.

Kitchen Table Kibitzing is a community series for those who wish to share part of the evening around a virtual kitchen table with kossacks who are caring and supportive of one another. So bring your stories, jokes, photos, funny pics, music, and interesting videos, as well as links—including quotations—to diaries, news stories, and books that you think this community would appreciate. Readers may notice that most who post diaries and comments in this series already know one another to some degree, but newcomers should not feel excluded. We welcome guests at our kitchen table, and hope to make some new friends as well.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
