I have had lots of "good times" at 1929 in the Haight. 2 &1/2 years of parties, friendships, band practices, fights, cries, laughs, and fun. But tomorrow I vacate. It is a tearful happiness that I leave the old and start anew. So to Cheryl, James, Free, Joe, and Ezra, I thank you for the wonderful times in that place. I will miss you all and am glad to have you all as friends.

Oh and goodbye Bob, how could I forget Bob.

The Kharma Police arrested me and beat me senseless.
I thought they were supposed to be "caring" and "loving."

They are just a bunch of hoodlums and thugs that carry big sticks and beat you down,
at least they beat me down. I have scars and bruises.

Today is my best friend Mat's 30th birthday.

He is in Thailand...on purpose.

Mat, I just wanted to welcome you to the 30 and over club, and from my limited experience, things really do get better with age. I am sure you and Harper are on a beautiful beach somewhere sharing this glorious day with eachother and celebrating all the amazing things you have accomplished in your first 30 years. I am so unbelievably blessed to have such an amazing person as you in my life and I wish you the happiest day and the most prosperous year ever.

Happy birthday old man...wherever you are.

When people yell at the busdriver, it only hurts all the others on the bus who are late to work. The whole class gets punished for the mistake of one. I hate you old man who yelled at my busdriver and made me late to work. The Kharma police will get you, and the stick of chewed gum I pasted on your pants as I got off the bus. I hope you find it's going to be hot today!

When I was away on my trip to Scotland I noticed that there was alot of animosity towards Americans. I noticed it in the papers, on tv, in restaurants, on the bus, in traffic, at the gas station and even in hotel rooms. There is an underlying theme that Americans are lesser than they. Granted we are a much younger nation, but with youth comes enthusiasm and verve. Just think of our views of foreigners in our country...different, yet exactly the same. It's like a black fly in your chardonnay. Ironic, but the statement isn't REALLY irony. A black fly in your chardonnay is not irony, and neither is Brittain's disdain for Americans. I have never heard more cynicism towards America from Brittainers wearing New York Yankee hats, Brooklyn hoodies, and Levi's jeans, while eating at Mcdonalds, listening to Eminem and sporting Kobe Bryant jersey's.

Kind of ironic, but not exactly.
We don't have a Queen either, but we do have a puppet.

Mat and Harper are on the plane to Thailand. I just talked to Mat. He is giddy with excitement, adrenilzed with fear, and ready to explore something he has never seen before. Harper is excited and calming Mat down. She is ready to take it one day at a time and relish what is a brand new world. I will miss them dearly and can't wait to see and hear all the wonderful stories from the Far East. They both send their love and thanks to all for making them know San Francisco is their home.

Happy Trails Mat and Harp.
Come back intact and bring me some cool stuff, ok?

I slow danced with "my girlfriend" on Saturday night.
She put on a black dress
She put on some sweet, old timey 40's music.
I asked her for the honor.
She took my hand
and we danced in her bedroom...alone...slow.
It was beautiful.
She is beautiful.

I have tons of new clothes. Me and the "The Evil Queen" went shopping on Sunday. She bought a second set of bedding, whereas she ain't gotta wash and replace the bedding immediately after the wash, she can use her new, extra pair. I bought 3 pairs of boxers at $7 apiece. The "The Evil Queen" likes me more if I have, and wear, clean clothes. We then went to my friends Mat and Harpers' place where they were having a "sidewalk sale." They had two pair of pretty much brand new Levi's 501's, those are my style, that were exactly my size. I bought them. Both. I also picked up several t-shirts, 2 cd's and a helluva a buzz, all for $6. It was a fun and clean weekend.

Except when I vomited in that lady's purse. She was I ran fast.

The can was full, there was nothing he could do.
"You can fit more in there."
"And how do you propose I do that?"
"You just pour the shit in there."
"It's full, yo."
"Watch and learn bitch."
He picked up the jug and the gooey substance spilled over the top of the can and ignited the shag carpet.
"Like a glove, huh? You fuckin' idiot. Get the goddam fire extinguisher!"
"It's all gonna fit, I'm almost done."
"Stop!" "Are you fucking blind! You're burning the house down!"
"I don't see any fire. It must be this new 'fire-resaistant' suit I just picked up at Mervyn's. We'll see if this thing works...Hey, your face is on fire."
"No it's not."
"Well your cheeks are peeling off, you smell like burning flesh and each second I can see more and more of your skull."
"No it's not."
"Ok. You're not on fire."
"Is it hot in here to you?"
