Well, hell yes, I am back in town
as my Miss M just hit the road again
this morning at 6:30am, on her way
to pick up a girlfriend and start
driving the Camry hybrid to Little
Rock, Arkansas. We took off,
as planned on June 25, for our
very own road trip, piloting my
new ride, the 2008 Suzuki.
It performed wonderfully,
but only averaged 22 mph,
so that was an expensive
6,000 miles of driving, enit?
Ran over to the VA campus
to get some bucks yesterday,
and pick up my fancy Retirement
Certificate, nicely framed.
Spend most of the day with
a wonderful Computer Geek
who lives in Enumclaw, working
on our Mac. It seems that it
had "bad Ram", and all it would
do is beep Morse code message
endeavoring to tell us this.
Turns out when a Mac goes down
or goes bad, 95% of the computer
fix-it joints will not talk to you.
Took a while to ferret out the
terrific Adrian, who is a Mac
specialist; also 66 years old.

Wow, love this post, sir.
The literary foray is very
entertaining and informative.
God help me, I did not know
who Chuck Palahniuk was,
but was honored to write
like him. A native Washingtonian
, he is a writer and journalist
and teacher; author of 12 fiction
novels, starting with FIGHT CLUB.
A very hip and gay nihilist,
he has his own website, THE CULT,
and conducts writing workshops too.

I'm sure that Sherman Alexie is
in shock, and Miss Emily has her
pantaloons in a wad, and even
Shakespeare is miffed.

Nice to be back, to be free,
to be retired, to be me.

I nearly giggled my ass off when you
revealed what Emily D. writes like!
Maybe you can work it out
for me too?

I was once told that I write like a repressed
jewish rabbi with a menorah stuck up my
butt.

Which is like, seriously odd.
