20030617 - confusion is next

"grace miller"a perfect stranger and a professed 13 year old girl has added me to her circle of friends.

that is all.

20030611 - Bum adjustment

I gave a co-worker a bottle of good homebrew, today, for making a "bum adjustment" in a local parking garage. Some panhandler was harassing people enough to threaten some nice people, so my co-worker adjusted his attitude. (This situation was almost the inverse of something that might go down in Valencia by Michelle Tea.) I doubt I'd ever do that sort of thing, and this co-worker is pretty easy going and doesn't seem like the type to have issues with his anger management, so I felt pretty secure that I wasn't rewarding 'bad' behavior so much as rewarding someone re-drawing a line.

In other panhandler news, I saw my man last night, Mr. Paint-Splattered-Single-Father-Of-A-Seven-Year-Old-Girl, he walked up to a bus stop and was 'looking at a bus schedule' as he checked out the covered trash can. Just sort of made me feel good to se 'my man' again. And to see how he works. If I didn't have C in the car telling me she didn't like this obsession with this guy, I would have followed him around for a while at a discreet distance.

20030609 - I want a trash bag!

I keep seeing various warning signs, advisories, etc. and trying to subvert them by changing something in the text to "plastic bag". The last one I started reading to myself thinking I was being clever was a warning on an actual plastic bag.

20030421 - TV Turnoff Week

You already heard about it on NPR, but here's the site for TV Turnoff Week.

I thought much of it was sorta funny...advice to people on how to cope, etc. I think I could use some counseling to help me cope with the trauma of having watched episodes of Small Wonder.

20030415 - Aerosmith trivia

You know the song "Janie's Got A Gun"?

It's a little known fact that the original concept for the song was "Janie's Got A Tuba."

And in the video, the Janie character wasn't supposed to write "LOST" in dirt, trash, and broken bits of household effluvia, but "OOMPAH".
