At Home I'm A Tourist

At long last, i have a night at home, a night without plans.
oh sure, i'm resisting the urge to go see negativland at the Great American.
but they're playing tomorrow night too.
so i got that in my back pocket.

to be home before 8 p.m. is a nice treat.

i realized that hardly anyone i know has concrete halloween plans.
god knows, i certainly shouldn't go to the Castro Monday night.
it's just too many idiots. you can barely even walk around.
sure, there are great costumes, but...i can see them online the next day.

or i can teleport there for a couple of minutes at a time and then teleport my ass on outta there, rescramble all my lovely molecules, and get on back home for some extended chill extravaganzas.

or i can dance on the ceiling. fuck gravity.
it's bullshit.

on the other hand, maybe i could go for a second.

word from detroit:
my nephew Brayden is already walking, talking and getting into verbal arguments with the nurses.
just a couple days old and already he's rocking the party right.
my brother did a good job having that kid.
apparently heidi, his wife, was there too for moral support.
nice work, bro.
you put the wind beneath my wings.

Sanguine Shuttlecock Sandwich

So i've been away for a bit.

My birthday came and went. Well, actually it's my birthday week, so i can keep on celebrating till i'm ready for the week to be over.

There was a fleeting thought of telling you that i was kidnapped at knifepoint by Bloodthirsty Monks with an unhealthy obsession with Eric Sevareid hellbent on destroying all forms of news-gathering currently at our disposal.

it was a tough and turbulant time my friends.

a time of reflection.

of revolt.

and intrigue.

not that anything really happened.

actually, i've been busy as fuck -- or B.A.F., for you acronym-loving genderbenders -- reeling in the years, reeling in the knees, reeling in the thneeds, reeling in the trees.

it brings me back to my halycon days of yesteryear holed up in the quaint little family farm we called home on Rodeo Drive.

Ah, my, times certainly have changed since those hardscrabble days on the lam, dole and pickpocket circuit.

at least i have my gelatin mold to remember you by.

Fuck you and your famine bullshit.
How do you know what the famine was about?

You see those floods happening?
I gotta alert Noah and get the ark ready. That 2-by-2 shit is bullshit.

My birthday was an exciting day of pain.
