I don’t follow fashion,
but to be fair
… it doesn’t follow me around either.
note: people who read fashion magazines are material witnesses.
double note: tailors, farmers, and uncaring people like to sew/so.
triple note: double stitching is so-so.
Today is the first day of the rest of your life … but so were all the others.
I guess people can only print so much on buttons and fridge magnets.

I watched my girlfriend as she moved from rack to rack in a women’s clothing store.
There were women of all ages shopping, but …
three women in their late 60’s followed my girlfriend around the store and were all interested in the same clothes as her.
I’m a bit worried.
note: there are many possible reasons for what I observed … and I elaborated on all of them after foolishly telling my friend the worst one first.
double note: I don’t have much choice when it comes to clothes where I live. I’ve turned into an LL Bean Stalker unintentionally. I like to call it XL Bean though.
triple note: I’m not saying that older people can’t look stylish in clothes: I’m saying I don’t want them to wear the same clothes as my girlfriend and I.
quadruple note: the X2: Egg Pod experiment has been updated. All the other experiments are doing fine … I’m just mesmerized by their ability to stay the same at the moment.
quintuple note: it’s another 2 entry night! … but those “The Sweetest Things” things are just too easy: like shooting barrels with fish … or something like that.
notes to myself #70
I don’t think you own a pair of jeans until you graduate High School. Your complacency amazes me … I mean us.

“I never read it in a book
I never saw it on a show
But I heard it in the alley
On the weird radio”
from “If You Wanna Get To Heaven” by Ozark Mountain Daredevils
I can’t remember too much stuff I studied in High School: it’s all fragments and things disappearing around corners now.
However, I probably remember every song lyric I heard between 13 and 18 years old.
If there had been cool songs explaining Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Algebra; I bet I would have …
– cured my lack of facial hair
– distilled a potion that made me irresistible to the opposite sex
– invented a way to win at PacMan
– built a Death Star in the shape of AC/DC‘s Angus Young‘s guitar.
Sadly for me the education through song portion of my fountain of knowledge dried up soon after “The Wheels on the Bus go Round and Round”.
note: probably the most educational song I know is Monty Python‘s Universe Song.
double note: I might have even invented “flubber” if I had had enough money to buy records!
triple note: How cool was Fred MacMurray? Pretty cool! I kid you not!
quadruple note: “I studied so hard for the test that I lost my voice.”
quintuple note: sometimes the wheels on the bus don’t go round and round.
sextuple note: In the fantasy realm of educational songs …
The Rolling Stones: physics
The Beatles: entomology
Led Zeppelin: alchemy and aeronautics
The Animals: zoology
The Cars: automotive
ZZ Top: hair dressing school
David Bowie: biology
The Clash: art of war or fashion
The Police: criminology
Dr. Hook: medicine or possibly fishing
Men At Work: business
The Doors: doors
AC/DC: the study of electricity
Crowded House: demographics
The Romantics: dead English poets you had to study in school
U2: spyware and spies and stuff
septuple note: I was going to include “Oasis: proctology” … but they weren’t around in my musical absorption period.
octuple note: Cheap Trick is more my life style.

“I changed my hairstyle, so many times now,
I don’t know what I look like!”
“Life During Wartime” by Talking Heads
Some people are fashion chameleons.
Every time you see them: different clothing style; different jewelry and accessories; different hair style and color. Sometimes different eye color too!
It must take them a lot of time, energy, and thought to have more “looks” than Mr. Potato Head.
