I know I said it'd be just the novel until december but I think I meant starting on november 1st.
I never think to check the weather before I leave the house, so this morning at a little after 5AM I rolled out of the garage and into active snowfall. I was wearing thongs like I always am. I figured I could make it to starbucks and it turned out I was right, though I came dangerously close to wiping out on one turn and banged the bare side of my foot against the sidewalk. Fortunately it was already numb so I didn't feel much. There were two cops in starbucks when I stumbled through the door with a blanket of snow over me. One of them gave me an absolutely classic look of bewilderment when he saw my footwear.
It's been snowing nonstop since I got here. Outside, my bike is holding all the snow physics will allow. It's coming down harder than ever. Oh look, the snowstorm is all over news and weather sites like it's something special. Ha! I have it on good authority people are biking around it without shoes. Come to think of it, I'm not too excited about the return trip.
As long as I'm posting... south park did an episode about the 9/11 conspiracy nuts a couple weeks ago. It so nails it. It's called "mystery of the urinal deuce" and you can buy it at itunes if that's your bag. In ten seasons of south park I can't think of a single episode where I didn't agree with their point of view, though I'm probably forgetting a couple. I love you trey parker! Call me. (You can't see it but I'm making the phone sign.)
I'm not much of a blog reader but it's a real pleasure to read glenn greenwald's. The guy writes so closely to how I think that I wonder whether he really exists or if he's a construct of my subconscious, as demonstrated in this entry and this entry and well hell, take your pick.
