My victory today – I spelled hors d’oeuvres correct on the first try.
Though the characters on Barney are not mascots in the traditional sense, I still want to twist their little fabric heads off.
Snow is predicted for the two days we’re staying at the Grand Canyon. That’s exciting – I’ve never really been in snow. Just the piddly shit that southeast Texas drops every decade or so. The low temps will be in the 20s. This makes me doubly sure that I’m going to buy some Scotch for this trip. I’m really not drinking much these days, but snow at the Canyon calls for some nips of something warm and tasty. I’m sure I’ll take to it quite easily. I still like to drink, I just don’t like the way I feel the next day. But when you’re on vacation, the rules don’t apply.
I wonder if Levon Helm and Tom Waits would get along? I’m listening to music at work. I just heard a Waits’ song and now I’m listening to The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down. Both men are cool, but in different ways. Well, their music and stage presence are cool. I don’t know anything about them personally, nor do I wish to. Usually, if I start looking into more information about people, they become less attractive. Like when I found out Beck was a scientologist.
