What are you doing?
So Lisa Austin made lunch and I totally spaced out and came home to Mac after Gianna got out of school.Â It’s because I was thinking about a harp, how to make a harp and a beanstalk, and plus I had just had my roots colored and I’m not eating my goji berries.
More to come.

I’d fill up his drink, lean in with wink and nudge and say, “Tony. Come on buddy, come clean. You had a ghostwriter, didn’t ya?” Then I’d ask him what he thought of the Yankees this year.
Hey, Mambo. Mambo Italiano. Hey Mambo, don’t want to tarantella.
Be good. Do less work. Stop cutting people off in the left lane.

… That picture’s there (below) for no good reason. The one I meant is on my computer, my computer’s in a little room in Sherwood, Sherwood is a town in Oregon about 16,000 big and it’s nine miles from Dundee. Dundee is five minutes from the woman with the self-cleaning house.
I have 274 stress points — 26 more and I’ve a good shot at getting ill! Wait, I feel ill right now. The carpet makes me ill, I think I’m ill.
“Better pass boldly into that other world, in the full glory of some passion, than fade and wither dismally with age,” said James Joyce. “Hmmm,” I replied. “I believe I’m withering.”
