saturday: punctured, sail fail, but undefeated/happy.

after a 15-mile riverside ride, my bike, despite its long-punctured tire, made it to evanston.
"i'm here!"

the catalyst for the ride was to go sailing. though the lack of wind squashed those plans.
people tanning, not sailing

a circuitous route back to logan followed. we tried to find the lakeshore bike trail; going east, going west, east, back west, then east again for nearly half an hour. grilled and bourbon-marinated chuck roast awaited (though chuck is not the best cut to grill).

"pair me with butter & garlic potatoes, a spring salad with grilled mushrooms and bleu cheese, and beer." "ok"

bad conversationalist

to day/night

  • where is the woman in honor?
  • he's wearing the red dress
  • there's uh, um, a meteor shower...tonight... i, um, saw it on the news.

with age comes the inability to talk properly.

juice and crackers

learned yesterday after giving blood:
at least six pints are needed for a transfusion
90/50 blood pressure (mine, salt aversion) is the lowest threshold you can have to donate

urban walk: thoughts and sights

  • bursting appendix that turned out to be side pain induced by coffee ice cream
  • if wrapping foil around old-school cell-phone antennas would help reception
  • how awesome it would be if i could parkour or freerun
  • how awful it would be if i had fatal familial insomnia, remembering an article i read in "national geographic"
  • excited to watch "singing in the rain", a recommendation from The Webb

bike puppeteer, andersonville, 8:11 p.m.
last seen in front of the art institute, 2008

a house that should belong to a southern politician, lincoln square

manicured lawns that remind me of jeff koons in versailles, 2008

rhinestone underwear and product placement

When "Bad Romance" came out, we had a viewing on the hour, every hour, at the office. Six months later, I finally get around to watching "Telephone".

Superficial and short summary:
first two minutes: torture to watch, where's the beat?
gaga can rock beer cans and telephones as headgear
gratuitous breast shots
mainstream queerness is promising
i want the lipstick gaga wears in the kitchen
nods to michael jackson fashion
axl rose gaga and wonderwoman beyonce dancing together is probably the most fulfilling part of this video.
