Recent sights:

  • A woman angrily exiting the post office with three large cardboard cutouts of Snap, Krackel, and Popp (sp?) from the Rice Krispies box. Apparently she couldn’t get them mailed right.
  • A ten year old girl with a skate shirt advertising its clothing label. Only the clothing label was PORN STAR.
  • A gigantic Ford Extrusion Ultra Huge SUV sliding entirely through an intersection in heavy rain.
  • An advertisement that Rob Lowe is to star in a TV movie called The Christmas Shoes.
  • A product called “Vegetarian Canadian Bacon”

I maintain that I am now living in a Simpsons episode, but not sure which one. Maybe I_get_stabby could enlighten me!

        1. Frightening grizzled fellow dressed like John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever, complete with silver chest rug prominently displayed.
        2. Roving packs of feral teens armed to the teeth with credit cards.
        3. The dual realization that the number of stores I choose not to shop at for protesty-type reasons has expanded to the point that shopping is difficult unless I buy something at ma’n’pas organic free-trade superstore AND that I can’t really boycott a store I never shopped at in the first place. So I end up feeling like a really goofy human. “Dude. I’m not gonna shop at Ambercrombie and Fitch ’cause the sexualize children.” Wait. I never shopped there to begin with…Hrm. Perhpas boycott of A&F not going so well.

    Ah, the glorious stupid clothing labels. That’s a popular one at the head shops around here, “head shop” meaning “place that sells tobacco water pipes only, dude, I totally swear”. Or to be fair, they sell those, lighters, sex toys, incense, clothing from Porn Star, shirts/posters featuring scenes from Scarface, and many shirts advertising drug use. Were I in a different mood, I would buy one of those shirts and wear it there to see if they enforced their “dude, our shit is tobacco only. mention anything else and we’ll kick you out, dude” policy.
    But it’d be a pointless exercise, and I do enough pointless things already.

  2. Unexplained fires are a matter for the courts!
    Yes, I’d like to send this letter to the Prussian consulate in Siam by aeromail. Am I too late for the 4:30 autogyro?

  3. Rob Lowe just needs to go back to making porn or whatever he was doing.
    also, I had to stare at your icon for 5 seconds before I recognized what it was.
    I’d like some compensation for the emotional scarring!
