Noticed a few people added me to their friends lists. Welcome, and if you came looking for pictures *nudge nudge*, I only post to the community so all you'll find here is a fair amount of rambling, the occasional picture of midget/family/friends, and recipes for things that satisfy my sweet tooth.

Out of phenergan now so I'm going to finally be pushy to the clinic since I can tolerate never seeing them but damned if I'm going to get deyhdrated from puking every time we have a serious air pressure drop. I'm pissed because the last one made me sleepy (a side effect of having rationed the last 12 out since November because the clinic keeps not calling back nor will they give me an appt without a call-back) so I was unable to appreciate Friday's ep of Law & Order: SVU, which Michael Learned guested in ("Privilege", episode #4.17).

Public Radio East splitting into separate news and music channels has made me very happy, although I can't sit up all night and listen to BBC World Service. I love NPR. Unfortunately they've played the same Saturday night programs (read: same episodes) for the past three weeks so it's always the "Time to Save the World" episode of This American Life, but also the Indigo Girls episode of etown so I can belt along with "Galileo" every time.

"I just went outside to piss and got whacked in the eyes by the results of what looks like a 7-8 inch all-nite snow, the first of the year . . . it's 6:45 a.m. here, with the sun just coming up . . . everything is flat white, even the sky is white. Dead silence, no color . . . this is what should happen in Vietnam. It gives you a sense of mortality . . like if anybody was unnatural enough to drop a bomb in my clean white front yard this morning, I'd natcherly blow his head off with a 12 gauge shotgun. And then I'd eat all the flesh off his bones, just to teach him a lesson." -- Hunter S. Thompson, letter to Gerald Walker, 3 Jan 1968

Well, I did add you because of "nudge nudge" BUT I'm keeping you on the list because it seems we'd be good friends in real life. All of the mentions in this post are my kind of thing exactly.

Thank you.

Someone I know through a different community has on their website that people who "post n00dz on the internet" are lame and should kill themselves because they can't get a compliment in real life. It made me think about the posts I make for a minute, then I remembered I have gotten compliments in real life and I enjoy sharing pictures of me with people who appreciate them.

Consider yourself warned that I'm a huge fan of Hunter S. Thompson... we have almost all his writings (still hunting down copies of a few books) and now that I'm working through the Gonzo Letters, I may be quoting him a lot while I'm reading.

Hunter S. is a fave of mine as well. It's been a while since I've read any of his stuff, but I always enjoyed it. If you haven't read "Hell's Angels" yet, make sure it's on your list.

It's actually on my list of HST books still to buy... I haven't found it used yet and Robert hates to buy new unless he has no other choice. (Of course, this is the same person that refused to let me budget it in when I found a copy of Shel Silverstein's "Different Dances" for $65, and now even the "acceptable" condition copies I can find start inthe $130 range. Bah.)

I recommend his new one, "Kingdom of Fear". It just came out, like, maybe a month ago. I'm readin' it now. It's awesome. He's sorta treating it as a memoir, although it's sorta like splitting the difference between a normal Memoir and the series of books like Songs of the Doomed. Anyway, though, I recommend it, even though it's still in hardcover (just having come out and all), so you might wanna wait for a paperback, if that's your scene.

Knowing Robert, we'll wait for it in paperback. (I'm the hardcover junkie in our house.) It's fine since I'm still working on Fear and Loathing in America (Gonzo Letters vol. 2).
