I'm so happy, cuz today I found my friends, they're in my head

I feel like taking pictures of stuff is very important. Helps me remember what happened before now.

I've got some great pictures of Olbrich Gardens. Great, except I realized that I've taken the same picture of a rose about 50 times. They all turn out great, but I guess I don't need that many. I just thought it was pretty amazing that roses were still blooming this late in the season.

Since the next two days are crazy for me, I'm going to forget about posting them until the weekend or next week. But they'll be fantastic worth waiting for fun to see. I promise.

Here's a little live Polyphonic Spree doing Nirvana's "Lithium".

Who do you love?

This weekend I am totally loving on Beer.

When you feel like you've got not a friend in the world*, a nice cold beer isn't the worst companion.

In other news, my DVD player is acting all crazy and I'm not thrilled about that. I rented crappy movies for a REASON, and that was to WATCH THEM.

At least I have you, Fallen Apple.

*I'm such a sad sack, I had a really lovely brunch with some fantastic women at the not-as-tony-as-I'd-thought Sardine. The White cheddar grits are amazing!

It's not paranoia if they are really out to get you

Conspiracy theories are a guilty pleasure of mine. I can't buy into much, so they don't take hold for me, but I do like the genre of thrillers-involving-big-government-cover-up.

Today's film, Shooter, which has all of the requisite themes, plot points and characters, has been a fun romp so far. I've got to go pick up the boy from afterschool so the ending will have to wait until after he goes to bed.

I came here for a reason

Was it to write about the sex dream I had this morning? It *was* pretty awesome, although now I can't remember who the other woman was.

No, that wasn't it.

Perhaps it was to write about the fire I nearly set in my kitchen this morning? I was not at all awesome, but it didn't cause any damage, aside that to my ego.

Nah, I couldn't want to write about that.

Maybe it's the surprising day of unseasonably lovely sunny weather we are having. That is definitely nice. And looking out my windows I see naught but green leaves on the trees. Now *that* is odd.

That could be it. That's why I'm here. To say "it's a beautiful day", and also to mention that I am a big fan of New Glarus Staghorn and Capital Oktoberfest beers this year.

And that I'm nearly a bus rider again. And that I suddenly got a craving for Thin Mint cookies.

Okay, that's it.

Let there be funk, and let it begin with me

Man, what I need is to have a house full of people dancing to some Parliment, the air redolent with marijuana smoke and a tumbler full of sweet red wine.

Also, a halter top.
