Oh look, they really ARE Teabaggers.

San Francisco Remembered

San Francisco Remembered
by Philip Schultz

In summer the polleny light bounces off the white buildings
& you can see their spines & nerves & where the joints knot.
You've never seen such polleny light. The whole city shining
& the women wearing dresses so thin you could see their wing-tipped hips
& their tall silvery legs alone can knock your eye out.
But this isn't about women. It's about the city of blue waters
& fog so thick it wraps round your legs & leaves glistening trails
along the dark winding streets. Once I followed such a trail
& wound up beside this redheaded woman who looked up & smiled
& let me tell you you don't see smiles like that in Jersey City.
She was wearing a black raincoat with two hundred pockets
& I wanted to put my hands in each one. But forget about her.
I was talking about the fog which steps up & taps your shoulder
like a panhandler who wants bus fare to a joint called The Paradise
& where else could this happen? ...

A Midwinter's Night

Got ambitious tonight - took Stitch to Mike's then came home and waxed it...

I got back to Irvington from work about 7:30, dropped off some mail, then stopped by Mikes (only a few blocks from the house). Went home, closed up the garage (not as bad as it sounds because the garage leaks air thru various cracks and holes), set the heater on high, opened the hood and left the doors open.

I really, really hate a dirty car. It'll just get messed up again tomorrow, but at least I got some wax on the car and the underside washed. I had to leave the car running in the garage for about fifteen minutes to get the temperature up acceptably first and then it was running while I was cleaning up. Ah, Carbon Monoxide. Yum. Cleaned the toxic who knows what plastic fog/film off the windows, cleaned out the inside. All ready to face the salt monster tomorrow.

Aren't Friday nights just the greatest? ;-)

I have to get some scratches and such out in a few weeks before entropy sets in.

Ah, the Holidays...

So far this week I've managed to offend many of my friends, hurt one I would really have preferred not to hurt, and my performance at work has been awful.

Multitasking doesn't work when 3/4 of your brain is stuck in a loop.

In other words, this week I've been emotionally compromised.

Michael Jackson- Morphine

I grew up with Michael, in the way that he and his brothers were one of the first musical acts I saw on TV. I think... I think I'm a little angry at him, and have been for a long time. All that talent, gone.

I think he must have been sad (as in depressed and sad) for a very long time. :-(
