things are begining to be never the same again ...

Mr. F sez adieu to CU.
In a few hours B leaves, in a few days Farsh and a few weeks Onur. the end of an era? or the beginning of something anew. how the adult world becomes so scary as it approaches and how rapidly. Will we be leaving for greener pastures? I hope so. But not too green, right?

good deed of the day

I found a bag left in a shopping cart at Trader Joe's and I brought into the management. I hope the purchaser got it back. Peas out.

Smelling the pickle.

The USA-ins were able to hold their own against the Russians in the vodka / light Russian dinner activities.

To drink the vodka properly:
1. Inhale
2. Half-Exhale
3. Swallow the vodka
4. Smell the pickle
5. Long Exhale
6. Eat the pickle
7. Eat some more dinner items
8. Repeat

Other highlights included the "pickle under pressure" aka i got hit in the face with pickle juice that squirted out the pickle and onto the wall and my face, riding bikes, water wars, amongst other shenanigans.

the check is in the mail.

today i looked through my check register. It goes back to late 2001 and even though I dont balance and my comments are sometimes obtuse, it is sort of interesting to see the story that is told by those entries. Like my lucrative, but short lived watch band business, the parking tickets I've got, or the cd's I sold for todd. Fun times with an inane task. hooray.

and demolition

The demolition derby. We went to a derby this weekend. And besides the obvious environmental hazards associated with this , it was fun. No need to describe the allure of crashing machines, but it is important to note that the people watching at these events can be just as exciting.

For awhile one of my favorite things to take pictures of was blurred TV images and lights at night.

i work with bats

Somtimes bats bite people. Like this bat biting this dude. The guy in the background records bat vocalizations. I helped. The equipment they use to record does some mumbo jumbo stretches the sound and its sounds like some Richie Hawtin plastikman-type-stuff

yellow tape

I bought some yellow handlebar tape about a month ago, it still hasnt made it onto my handlebars. Too much pressure.

in the begining

I don't think about the begining of life - the very start. How did rocks become beings? And then from here what if humanoids, were green and synthesized their own food? Then what? Could you imagine a life with out the need to eat? Would get the same sensation from standing in the sun and pounding some mineral water as we would from chomping on some deep dish?

Lately, I have no sense of motivation or routine. And as much as I want stability - that is, claiming stakes - at times can simmer with bubbles of caution. I feel like I should consume as much as possible of the world, yet lately my appetite has been small. Obviously we rely on each other for shared experiences to gain more knowledge of the world, yet its hard to pick and choose what experiences I should experience for you, for me. With that said my recent inability to complete tasks is lame, but not lame enough for me to take any marked action. I am now in search of new hobby. When does inaction lead to revoultion? Maybe Patch would know.
