Random Musings for a Monday Evening

I finally got to see some cricket, watching Australia beat South Africa in the biggest match of the tournament so far. Extremely enjoyable, as was the Harp accompaniment.

There is a car parked outside my apartment that has the numberplate AA 5523. Every time I look at it I think: "looks like they have a good shot at the low, but the high is going to be dicey".

I just cracked open "Last Exit to Brooklyn" by Hubert Selby, which I picked up last time I was in New York. I got it from a bookstore near NYU, in the "Drinking, Screwing, Smoking" section (really). I've really been enjoying it thus far, and wonder what has taken me so long to get to it.

I still expect to be an emotional wreck by the end of it.

No man is an island, but I like to think of myself as a highly defended fortification. That has a moat. And the moat has alligators.

A friend (acquaintance?) of mine gave me a great hook: it's a good rule of thumb not to take your girlfriend to see a band tha has a lead singer who you think might have designs on your girl.

I probably should do something with that.

I'm glad to see Spring is here. I really enjoy sitting out on the stoop, beer in hand and iPod engaged, watching the street wander by from within my cocoon.

No need to worry, just the normal injections of weirdness into my life. Which makes sense, weird is practically my middle name.

The Band fucking rocks.


  • No worries. Lots of useful info, and I agree with your assessment of the car's plate...tough shot at a scoop, but stranger things have happened. And the alligators are wearing kevlar cups, right?

  • I have brand new porch that will see me and a Cap'n Coke with Pantera blasting in my ears sitting out on come Friday.
