    i hate when people talk about their "spirit animals". that's a stepping stone to essential oils and chakra crystals. my spirit animal is telling people to shut the fuck up about their spirit animals.

    There’s no anguish like the anguish of flushing a toilet in a public bathroom, watching it clog and being able to do nothing about the slow, inevitable march of toilet water to the top of the bowl.

    Even though I have rode the trainer, did the pool laps at the JCC. Reached my Sit up and Push up goals. I still seem to have limited endurance. This concerns me. I have plans...

    I'm not sure who is worse to run into on a trail, a horse and rider or an uppity bird watcher.

    At least the flower sniffers generally don't care what you do, as long as you stay on trail.

    At both 44.474148, -73.142464 and 44.474148, -73.142464 there are three-bay bunkers that, when I arrived here, were reputed to store nuclear weapons. I wonder what's in them now.

    You put the same coordinates twice, unless Burlington International Airport has one bunker on top of another.

    Yeah, I fucked up. Look at the aerial views - both bunkers are proximate and clearly evident.

    • Well I guess if I had to swear one way or another, I'd say Lazlo wasn't insane. He just had very strange rhythms. But he stomped on the terra. Lord Buckley said that. It's hard to say he got what he deserved, because he never really got anything, at least not in this story. And right now, this story is all we have ... It's sad. But what's really sad is it never got weird enough for me. I moved to the country when the boat got too crowded. Then I learned that President Nixon had been eaten by white cannibals on an island near Tijuana for no good reason at all. Golly, you hear a lot of savage and unnatural things about people these days. Lazlo and Nixon are both gone now, but I don't think I'm going to believe that 'til I can gnaw on their skulls with my very own teeth. Fuck those people, huh? If they're out there, I'm going to find them, and I'm going to gnaw on their skulls. Because it still hasn't gotten weird enough for me.

    Why do I race? It's not to win trophies. It's not for the podium. It's not for the comradery. It's not for the speed. It's not for the workout. It's not to meet women (mostly). It's not to fight depression. It's not to get away from people at work. It's not to get into nature. It's not for the challenge of the course. It's for the free socks.

    Did you know that if you sit on the toilet at 11:59pm and the clock strikes midnight then it is literally the same sh!t different day.

    air shows on acid are really fucking intense then its over & you are all jazzed so you think its a good idea to swim out to the sand bar but at the sand bar the under tow is so strong & you are so spun that you dont realize you are being swept out to sea & you dont realize all the sparkling beneath your now suspended feet is a giant school of fish, then next thing you know you are being fished out of the Gulf of Mexico by a Blackhawk & being taken to the naval air station in Pensacola.

    Key West for me. It was a Coast Guard helicopter for me. I don't remember any fish.
