Reverse Medusa Meets The Man With The Achilles Brain...
Girl cut me off this morning. My car almost slammed into hers. I started cursing at her and ended up at the same light as her. She was going to make a right at the light and I was going to go straight.
Her window starts to go down. I start to get excited because I think that for some reason, she’s going to say something to me. Yell at me. Why? I don’t know – but I’m about to whip up a verbal shit-storm when –
I see her and…she’s really pretty.
And she says, “Excuse me. Do you know where I can find Chapman Street?”
And do you know what I did? What I said to this distracted, horrible bitch of a driver that only seconds before had put my well-being and maybe my whole life in jeopardy?
You got that right. I totally changed in an instant.
Before I knew what was happening, a big smile crept up on my face, my voice changed and I became very, very helpful. I even apologized because I couldn’t give her better directions.
Now...there’s nothing wrong with me. This is wrong with all of us. You, me and everybody, dogs and cats included too.
Pretty people get away with EVERYTHING.
And we let them.
We run faster to help them.
We pretend we’re interested in what they’re saying.
We marry them.
We have kids with them.
We watch movies with them in it.
We let them cut through us with fiery swords.
We let them walk all over us.
We let them into our lives and we love it.
We let them.
Yes, we do.
And I must not be that pretty then...because people give me shit all of the time.

The Slow Assassination Of Kevynn Malone...
I swear to Zeus that the girlfriend and the various domesticated animals in the house have conspired to not ever let me have a proper sleep. I'm an insomniac, Restless Leg-syndrome Nerd, and all together Mr. Nightmare-sweaty-scream-in-your-sleep anyway, but...how many times can a guy be woken up when he's savoring that last two hours before he has to get up?
Throw a pillow by my head?
Fucking cats using my head as a Twister mat?
Dog burrowing in the sheets Like Cheney does for Oil?
Landlady measuring windows outside?
Girlfriend deciding to ask me questions? Now?
I AM ASLEEP.
It's hard enough to get anything that mimics human speech patterns when I'm awake.
When I'm asleep? You get what it sounds like when live baby piglets get thrown in campfires...
Go away and let me be Jabba The Hutt.

The Sky Looks ILM Fake...
he checks his pockets for scraps of paper
he swears he had things to do
but there were no papers
so now what
what am I missing
will these things
hit me in the head when I'm at home
will I have to get back up
are they that important
no no no
out of sight
out of mind
or out of mind
out of sight
no no no

Men over 40 that wear colognes that smell like fish, ass, grass and the cigarette smoke of dive bars?
STOP IT. Thank you.
Also, I earlier had put my half-eaten submarine sandwich in the office fridge. Later on, I went back to grab a Coke and noticed that the whole fridge now smelled like my sandwich. I wondered if anybody had taken something of theirs out of the fridge and then were grossed out by the now over-powering smell of my Sub.
I felt like I had just silently farted in a crowded elevator.

It's kind of funny.
I've been bored at work and reading, reading, reading various crap on the internet.
I think to myself, "I should write something, but then I'll have to go back to Blogger, type in my password, wait, and then blah, blah, blah, It takes too much time."
So I go to Blogger anyways and...Oh shit - DON'T have to type in my password because last time I was on it, I checked the little box that asked if it wanted it to remember me. Which, apparently, I guess it did.
And so there I was with a blank space in front of me, no delays, everything that I complained about in my head didn't exist and...so I typed...this.
Hmmm...It's kind of like somebody giving you a free pass to Disneyland, but then when you ride the Tea Cups - you shit your pants.

The White Mountains...
The phones are acting weird today. Calls disconnect. I can hear a click when I get on the phone – kind of like somebody else is getting on the line right after me. There is also a faint hum in the background that I never noticed before. The computer’s are sluggish and I can see the silhouettes of shuffling feet from beneath the door, but every time I yank it open, there’s nobody there.
When you drive home tonight – watch out, try to keep your eye in the sky, avoid being tailed, lock your doors and turn out the lights when you get home.

My Car Smells Like Cat Pee Too...
It’d be convenient if I had a computer attached to my head. Then I could write about stuff while it was happening instead of sporadically firing away when time allowed.
But considering how much I fall down when I’m drinking – I guess my Head-Computer would be broken a lot.
I also never carry eggs or light bulbs in my pockets for this reason also.
