i’ll soon cause PhotoChop to “flip”…
ie, to *re*-flip (*back* to “true”
right-is-right-dammit orientation)…
all the new shots. meanwhile, here’s
a through-the-looking-glass shot of
eniledam’s kitchen. very likely the
last of the series. god this new
equipment is annoying.

king of the lists

the shelf is still right where i photographed it
but the books have all been moved to a new shelving
development. i’m lazy t’ *photograph* it just now,
so what you see here is it for tonight.

and, yes, i’ve actually *read* most of these…
several of them more than once and more than
a handful *out loud*. i haven’t kept up.
but for quite a while there, it was steve’s
america around here (and millions of people
knew it). to rival the sheer number-of-words-
-read in my life, you’d have to be isaac asimov
or something. the prize here is probably the
_green_mile_ set. all but one of ‘em are firsts.

and other stuff that
madeline knows, not i.

good though. and i haven’t
tried anything *new* in,
i guess, a couple weeks.
and *still* can’t fry an
egg to my own satisfaction.

squirm before you can crawl.
crawl before you can walk.
walk before you can run.
run before you can run far
or fast. but never think
you’re done with squirming

or dishwashing.

four 4′s

one song, two chords
three frets, four verses

one people, two jews
three opinions, four gospels

one planet, two choices
three directions, four dimensions

one god, two religions
three idols, four horsemen

having lots of different home-made goodies
could get to be a habit. for a while. life
at “show” HQ couldn’t be better. maybe there’ll
be some action next door
soon (name change: virtual medz). maybe not.
bible and mysticism? time will tell. meanwhile,
here’s a quick link to the “religion” links
from this blog (& its ancestors). let the exegesis

though, you, know
they’ll scorn your horn,
you’ve got to blow one…
trust no one. trust no one.
you’d better make a fake
in case you have to show one…
trust no one.
(repeat; guitar solo; repeat)
and if you need a crop of weed
you’d better grow one…
trust no one, trust no one.
trust no one. trust no one.

not shown: toast and mayo.
there’s one whole leg left
over. the big pieces of
skin went into a frying pan;
i’ve eaten all but the very
biggest as of the next morn-
ing. the bag of bones is
destined for the dumpster
obviously; the back-organs
are duly consumed along
with the bits of meat that
didn’t easily come off of
the bone or cartilage or
sinew or what have you.
yum. serve with ramen
noodles fried (after soft-
ening in the chickenbroth)
in leftover bacongrease
(seasoned lightly with
premix “poultry” blend
from the spicerack–
“fried ramen chips”).
makes two goodly sand-
wich halves, which in
the event, i got one of
for myownself. yum again.
