This is what happens when I get ahold of that doll-maker
and my experimental mailserver is frustratingly broken.

Friendly Vodka

So yesterday evening earlyish I decided I needed to go
check out the Bar Of Many Vodkas. (Rasputin's, by Lafayette
Square Park). Black and red and my god, the entire bar is
lined with pour-spouted bottles of happy clear drunkness.
Six or seven dollars per drink excepting the low-end american
junk, the vodka list has damned near everything. It's a bit
'after-work' ish in there from downtown, but I was dressed
the part yesterday so it was alright. I suppose when I go
back I'll ask them to dig up that Irish vodka for me.

long week

A phone conversation last night reminds me that I should
apologize for being so annoyingly chatty, it's half the fault
that I live by myself with only the dog to talk to and that
I usually work in an office/lab type space alone as well.
A little too much solitude sometimes. I've been a little
rocky lately, some bad and disappointing days.


I've got a working sparcbook sitting at home now, waiting
for a cable so it can have intarweb. Mad props to the
postman who delivers my mail to the lab, he actually went
back to the post office to find it for me after he'd delivered
all our mail up here. I'd gone over there monday night to
ask for said package already and they told me they didn't
have the thing.

You people all need to come to Voodoo this year with me.
At the very least I want to make day 1.

crepes and television

The Brennan's have a crepe stand on Bourbon Street that is the
absolute best thing ever. Heavenly fresh crepes.

Cox is trying to convince me to buy digital cable by putting vh1
classic on their preview channel and playing Siouxsie.

two posts in two days

Amazing. Now I have a fixed car with some but not too much
pain to the wallet, at least. I don't have a stretch of road good
for redlining the car to really test the thing but I'm sure I can
take advantage of good onramps.

And work. Just when my sparcbook is supposed to get to my
office I'm not there for two days, too. Suppose I'll go downtown
this evening after the meters shut off.

no car for me

It feels so weird to be home without my car in the driveway.
Now at least I -have- a driveway mind you, but my car's
engine is behaving annoyingly so it is waiting to be looked
at early tomorrow morning. Now my problems are more
along the lines of being low on beer and dog treats.

This would have been a lovely weekend for a roadtrip, but no one cares
for me enough to host me anyway. And fuck all you people going to
summer camping too. ;p

Anyway. To compensate my bitchy self, friday night involved not one
but two rounds of drinking, the first involving a couple pitchers of
margaritas at dinnertime, the second starting in the quarter about 2am
and leaving at 5 or so.

The gorgeous weather persuaded me to take susie for a walk on the
lakefront yesterday, making some progress on operation Be Less Pale.

In other random news, some documentation I'm going
through (for a current product) mentions the RUBOUT
