  1. Suggestions.


    Dirty Limericks.

    Always welcome!

  2. Sorry to go o/t, but I made a great find at work on Thursday. I was salting the walkways and pavements around the plant, when I just so happened to notice a bit of print on the back of the bag. Dead Sea Works? Wait a minute, could it be...

    Yup. :)

    1. Dead Sea Works?


      But today looks like a perfectly pleasant day here in the Oakland foothills.

      It's nothing but sun and around 65 degrees.

      I hear that this is not necessarily true around the rest of the country!

    2. Snowing again here in Philadelphia. Because apparently, getting six years' worth of snow over the past three weeks wasn't enough. Supposed to 'only' be a few inches today, but everyone seems to have forgotten that three or four inches is generally the one big snowfall Philadelphia gets most years.

      To add to the mess, every block but ours has already had their recycling picked up (a day late this week due to MLK Day), and I fear Streets has skipped us this week. It's happened before. It's windy as hell right now, too, so I fear that when I get home in an hour, it will be to deliriously dancing displays of empty soda cans and suboxone wrappers floating in the wind. Maybe I should record the sequence on my phone's camera a la that scene in American Beauty.

      Anyway, I'm at the bar across from my laundromat, having a Philadelphia Brewing Company Joe Coffee Porter and an egg sandwich, waiting for my laundry to dry itself. I'm getting tired of shoveling, and hope I don't have to do much of it after this stops in a few hours...

  3. Anyway, what is this, Mike?

    You writing a book or something?

    (Yeah, our recycling still hasn't been picked up, but at least the winds died down a bit... if Streets skips us again, I'm of half a mind to gather up a few bags' worth of it, and deliver it to the steps of our completely useless city councilman, Mark Squilla...)

    1. I think I might turn into a book.

      I want to start using this place to fill in the chapters and to work on it. I think what I might do as I continue to revise my outline is write brief summaries of each chapter.

      I'm honestly not certain, yet.

      But, yes, the above is the beginnings of an outline for a book.

    2. You'd better come to Philadelphia and give a talk after publication, good sir!

      I'm collecting authors, and it would be good to actually agree with one of them for a change... ;)
