Reality Almost Stopped (a lighter note from Iraq)

Any bets on the authenticity?

Notes From The Field Part II

I like to walk around the hills in Upstate New York.

After the floods in June, this piece of driftwood landed over a small pond and some funny soul took the liberty of painting lips and stapling paper on to make a dragon. It's like rural guerilla art.

My dog, Keno, is on the left and the dog down the road, Sasha, is on the right.
Good times.

Money Money Money

Jobs are so weird. Today I had to administer first aid when one of my consumers was bit IN THE FACE by another consumer. Two weeks ago, I went to see the animated movie, Barnyard, while on the clock. Sometimes I think it's God's work, and sometimes I think it's babysitting.

I used to sit in on meetings to decide how best to win a 23 million dollar grant from the NIH. At one time, I assembled cheeseburgers in a polyester polo shirt and Dickies slacks. I served soup to Peter Gallagher. I checked coats on Jewish Singles Night. I issued birth certificates and marriage licenses. Of all the jobs so far, I like this one the best. It's fun sometimes and scary sometimes, but it's always completely relevant.

new laws

The Governor of New York did last week what lawmakers are paid to do and made 300 new laws. Within the borders of the State of New York it is now illegal to carry firearms on school buses. Coyote hunting with dogs and selling beer on Sundays before noon is now allowed. There are now tougher penalties for grave robbing and the Vietnam War now officialy started on Feb 28, 1961 (untill now it started on Dec 22, 1961).

paris hilton said it (redux)

"There's nobody in the world like me. I think every decade has an iconic blonde—like Marilyn Monroe or Princess Diana—and right now, I'm that icon."
