"Waiting on his egg."
I came up with the perfect costume idea at 8AM this morning. I could grow a goatee and go as my own evil twin. Except, I can't grow a goatee, and certainly not in thirty minutes. I was instead my twin from an alternate, Scottish dimension for a bit, but basically I'm tired from not sleeping since Sunday. I consider only two hours a nap. I've had two or three of those. I could go for one right now.

I could go for...
I could go for a lot of things right now. My face needs to decide if it wants hair or not. This babyface crap would be fine if I didn't have any hair to shave. This halfmeasures stuff is just crap. I'm still thinking about getting depilated... FOREVER.

Sometimes I don't even turn it off when I lay down to sleep nap. All the quotes save the one from Clerks are derived from the title track. Andalusia and The Simple Truth are also early favorites; I'm still learning the names of the other tunes and the tunes that go with the names.

  • Where ya from? :)

    The following piece is a monologue I performed for "The Griot Show" last weekend: I get asked this question a lot: "Where are you from?"…

  • Coming to rest.

    Copied from facebook (sorry, but it's something). One of the topics I was researching yesterday was sundive trajectories. It may be surprising, but…
