things i learned (and re-learned) on the train-ride to work

a) cakes are really hard to travel with on crowded public transportation

b) my man pynchon can really turn a phrase. I am only halfway through Against the Day (a review of which I've promised JBB
on completion of the novel... eta early january) and i've already encountered sentient tornadoes, anarchist miners, time-travel conventions, cities buried under oceans of sand, zeppelin riding 'hardy-boy'-esque boy detectives, bird-dogging archdukes, and attempted homicide with mayonnaise as the murder weapon du jour.

c) i'm coming to terms with the fact that yes, I do dance like Snoopy. This morning i kick-started my day with some OTC and when "Sunshine Fix" came on I was all Charles Schultz's beagling it all over the place.

d) cakes are really easy to eat after a crowded ride on public transportation. Croftie, my work approves!

e) Gogol, tomorrow. be there or be devoid of insanely intense fiddling, caberet dancing, awkward ukranian rapping, and gypsy-punk-tacular rock'n'roll stylings.

birds?! there are birds?!

and i'd forgotten about the awkward rapping dude who was so obviously in the band only because he was related to someone in the band.

i know i said this last time, but i think it's even more meaningful now that we already know what we know: tomorrow night could be beyond our wildest dreams.

unless make believe is opening. nightmare.

So very glad the cake fared well at work, despite its stale and sorry state.
