I don’t usually think that I’m living on a crust
… until there is an earthquake.
note: I am fine. I live up in the mountains about 300km away from Sendai. It shook this area up, but no damage.
double note: my heart goes out to those in Sendai and Northern Japan who have lost their lives, relatives, friends, homes, livelihoods and all the other stuff we get used to as permanent.
I don’t feel so funny today … more sad and shocked.

“Hope springs eternal” (Alexander Pope)
“Spring springs eternal too! … and is springy!” (planetross)
note: When a pregnant woman tells me her due date … I do the math and figure out when her did date was.
… I hope other guys do that too.
double note: Spring is 9 months away from the first day of summer … or only a day away … if you are into nostalgia.
triple note: “Danny Says” by The Ramones and Tom Waits! How cool is that? … pretty cool.
I couldn’t find an Alexander Pope version, sorry.
quadruple note: I figured I’d throw this one out on the weekend because nobody ever comments of this video stuff anyway.
quintuple note: If Tom Waits, Joey Ramone, and Alexander Pope were in the same room; I’m sure I’d be dreaming.
sextuple note: I’m getting all melancholugubrious.

Everyone has their own musical taste … it’s just the way it is. Opening your ears and shutting your mouth is usually better than closing your ears and opening your mouth.

I didn’t talk to anyone today.
Not a single word was uttered to another human today.
I wasn’t a recluse or anything: I went out.
I didn’t wave, nod, or acknowledge someone I knew who was driving by. (I didn’t see anyone I knew)
I didn’t say “thank you”, “no bag please”, or “heated” at a convenience store. (I didn’t go into one)
I didn’t talk on the phone.
Besides talking to myself I think I only talked to the cat sitting on the sake barrel outside the front door.
It seems to have taken up sunshine hours there since I moved the aloe vera inside for the winter.
Do I feel weird or bothered by this?
It was quite a nice day … I just didn’t talk to anyone.
note: sometimes I can’t hear myself talking.
double note: yes, that is exactly what I said.

You talk too much. You listen too little sometimes.
