Once again

Done working on the Viola thingy.
Ate two sandwiches for lunch.
Salame and cheese.
Peanut butter and jam.

Forgot to drink anything.

Better get to that soon.

Day after tomorrow is the big recording session.
I'll have to be out of bed by seven thirty.
What kind of musicians am I dealing with here, anyway?

Ones who have serious work later in the day, I suppose.

Did'ja hear? A Finn won a Nobel Prize for trying to get the American juggernaut to behave itself just a little.

Martti Ahtisaari has been "standing in front of the tank" more than twenty years.

It's nice to see this kind of courage rewarded with something other than being thrown out onto the street.

Not that anything I ever did would fall under the definition of courageous

But I did get thrown off the sidewalk and into the street.

Must be worth somthin'

.........?

Seems like we did something interesting last night....

Meredith came home early last night from her job cataloging books for the school library, cause they told her there was no more money available.
Not that money had anything to do with it.
But, in celebration of the lost "job" we popped out to Southcenter to buty some stainless steel pins for one of her C-mass projects.
After which we retired to The Whistlestop for dinner and a brew.
They were out of Guinness!

What the heck, the baked salmon was good.
The chicken marsala was good.

Lot'sa stuff is good.

'cording to Charley Brown, grief is good.

Yeah, well my mother always liked you best, and your mother always had the hots for me, so where the hell does that leave us in the great scheme of things?

PB&J is still a staple around our digs. Friday is the BIG day for Lane Savant, a recording, a recording! You must be all a tingle for the event, and be sporting wood for you have always had a secret jones for your own self ingrandizement, enit?

I would like to win the Pulitzer prize some day from my poetry, my line of BS, and/or my movie reviews, and because Roger Ebert won one for his. Nobels are a bit too snooty for me.

Christ on a crutch, sir, the kind of courage you have is just getting your ass out of bed each day at 8,9,or 10, when my day is already half over, and facing the consequences of your consciousness in the Now; which is all there is. If we were in combat, I would fight alongside you any day. Once your dander is up the Commies and Ragheads have to hide.

Do you think that Raquel Welch had the bests Jugsornot?

Name me just one other human being that has been bullied, degraded, sold out, scorned, and humiliated by the SSO on a public street beside you. You looked them right in the eye, I'm sure, those gestapo goon bastards.

Many of my retired compeers are worried as hell since their income is based on their investments and the damned stock market has not hit bottom yet. One professor had to go back to work. Maybe I just will not retire. I will work on and on and on until finally one fine day I will fall in the line of duty, and courageous work slave to the end, the very end, the bitter end; die at my desk, or on the staff crapper.

Out of Guiness? Don't those ingrates know who you are? You need to expand your restuarant choices. There is a good Denny's up the street there in Renton, enit?

33 comments on your last posting, not counting this one, this posting or this comment. Are you going for a blogging record? I think your most responded to post garnered like 55 responses. Of course, the majority of your respondants are dead or illusionary, but what the hell, a response, a comment is valid as soon as it is posted.

That was a very sweet thing your reported about how Alex feels regarding my poeticising her blog. Sometimes I feared she found it too tedious and precious. If I had any sway or infleunce in her decision to do more singing, then I guess I am a 250 lb. Muse by God.

Go polish your pistols, Patton. Palmer would piss his pants in combat. You would be much better off taking his wife, Miss M, or Glenn's wife, the other Miss M. Either of those ladies could kick the ass off their men. Everyone knows that.

Actually there are hundred of thousands of blog sites out here in Cyberland, so what makes you think that you could create a gaggle of interested respondants with the dribble and bathos that you post? Perhaps Butch is right, and you need to serialize some of your plays, or finish writing your mystery with the SSO as villians; one page a day would string along and cajole the public. Try it.

I would agree, Bea. Jannie just classes up things. Maybe it's that big blue eye, maybe it's her bra flinging, or her poetry, or her propensity to indulge her sweet tooth, or her singing voice, or her guitar picking, or the fact that she uses the name of her former band as her own moniker. Whatever it is, it is a fact that Jannie Funster rocks!

You are more than welcome, Anonomann. I guess I gave you the straight dope, the good data, cuz Doug did not censure or correct it. Love to see your very special style of commenting. Wish I could get you to look at all the great stuff I post over on Feel Free To Read. I am presently trying to post as many of Sherman Alexie's poems as I can find, to share with the world, to glorify his already famous self. And of course you might find some of my poems there too, and some great pics of movie themes.

Toby Jones looked a lot more like the real me, a bit thinner he was though. We are approximately the same height, and his actual gay mannerisms were spot on; but it was Hoffman who found the pain, the sadness and joy in his role, playing me magnificently. Forget about Bobby Morse.

Actually I don't have anything of merit to add to this dazzling array of comments, but I noticed that there were only (49) comments, and I think there should be (50), at least.

I don't follow Lane's comment, other than he might be very busy with his holiday chores and activities over the next couple weeks; probably just another example of Palmer wit and Savant charm.

I found another poem in Alex's latest prose posing. I call it WINTER ON THE SALISH. I have to earn my copy of ALEXTRONICA after all, enit?
