whirled dog

He wasn’t in the house ten seconds before he had himself whirled up in his camouflage hideaway.

We went out to eat Italian. After dinner, the server suggested coffee. Sometimes I want what the restaurant has. Other times I run home and make it myself.

I like coffee after Italian, or Mexican, Vietnamese, Wendy’s…any

basura en el buzón

Coupons that come in the mail that are not stapled or in an envelope go directly to trash. It’s like somebody threw a handful of rubbish in your mailbox.

Also, Mother Jones sent an intro offer. Threw that away, too.

jalisco dreamin’

End-of-year dream.

I dreamed last night that I was picking out flautas to fill a giant to-go container in Guadalajara. I stopped at 2.5 kilos (5.5 lbs) when other customers started grumbling about the gringo buying all the place had.

I ended up walking through a gift shop while munching on them looking for Brian and complaining, “why did I buy all these flautas if he’s not going to help me eat them, and I forgot the 2L Pepsi.”

Then I woke up in Greensboro disoriented. It made no sense in a lovely way.

attitude problem early on

I remember seeing a letter in the local newspaper when I was a teenager (age 15 ~ 1974). A distant “career/professional” couple was considering a move and wanted people to write and convince them to move to Greensboro. I took out a sheet of paper and wrote the following: “If this is the way you choose a place to live, please move somewhere else.”

I must have been auditioning for net forums before the net was around.
