...is there anybody in there?

I am here, just been preoccupied. A summary:

Still either too cold/windy/snowy to fly. Haven’t been up there in six weeks. Flight Simulator helps with the shakes.

Brenda’s theatre company opened their production of Terrence McNally’s “Lips Together, Teeth Apart” on Friday, and it was, in my opinion, the best production I’ve ever seen there in all the years she’s run the costume shop there. Bravo. Bravo!

A new digital camera has been announced by Olympus, and I want it. Looking forward to reading what Phil Askey has to say about it, when it’s finally released.

It took Brenda & I approximately four hours to watch the hour-long David Blaine “Street Magic” special, since with TiVo I could watch his sleight-of-hand tomfoolery frame-by-motherfucking-frame, and I still don’t know how he did half of it.

Brenda & I saw Jon Stewart perform stand-up comedy live in New Brunswick, NJ on Valentine’s Day. He was good, but he’d dumbed-down the material, seeing how he was performing in a university town. Wait, that doesn’t make any sense.

I am playing with this new-to-me weblogging software called WordPress, and would like to roll out a completely new website design for rumblestrip. Look for it sometime in late 2006.

I got new eyeglasses.

Lastly, I leave you with some conversation snippets I overheard just this morning, on the train. These two bimbos apparently have gainful employment in New York City too:

“I think Equal is the best tasting sugar…”

”... because gin is the lowest sugar content of all the ‘alcohols’.”

“It was funny, because I was like, I’d only had like two Sam Adams and like Rachael was all, ‘are you OK?’ and I was like ‘can I sleep at Danielle’s tonight?’”

”...definitely, orange soda after a hangover.”

Indeed. These two are ingesting either alcohol or sugar all day long, apparently. They’re a couple of walking, talking, sea-breezes.

Well, there you go. The executive summary, as if you care. Have a nice day, my lunch break is about over.
