wanna go HOME now...

  Back From The Less-Alive

19 January 1999

4:38 PM: Ow. This is the problem with three-day weekends, I get too enthusiastically nocturnal. That plus the usual poor urge control. I started re-reading the Cyteen trilogy by C.J.Cherryh last night at about ... well, at about early this morning, really, and got a bad case of the what-next?s. Closed the cover on the second book today at about 1 PM and thought, "Oh. Work."

Ow. "This periodic restful activity typically brings a sense of restoration and health."

Super State of the Union in an hour and change! Woo! Feel the excitement in the air here today, Dave. I wonder if today's Snack! of mixed nuts is a comment. Could be about us, too, though, we're a sullen bunch.

6ish: Live notes!

Uh oh, Republican response! Er, not that I'm partisan or anything. I could be, but it would be wrong.

9:24: A tangential note: Boomers around the world, we have heard your Sea Monkey story already. On the day that you had your first kiss, bought your first car, when your parent[s] died and your first child was born, your long-awaited package of Sea Monkeys came in the mail, and they turned out to be just brine shrimp and you were all disappointed and stuff. I know. You know. My neighbor's dog knows. Think of something else. Mmmmkay? Thanks.

And hey, you, kettle! Lookin pretty black today!

Willfully blind self-indulgent nebbish or amusingly quirky old coot? And how bout that local sports team? Discuss among yourselves.

All names are fake, most places are real, the author is definitely unreliable but it's all in good fun. Yep.
