THINGS I DON’T UNDERSTAND

1. WHY IS IT SO COLD.

2. WHY IS THIS HAPPENING TO ME MORE THAN IT IS HAPPENING TO EVERYBODY ELSE.
(Mike Donahue wanted to know this too. Okay fine Mike, it is happening to both of us.)

3. WHY WERE A PUPPY, A HOT BATH, AND A BOWL OF SOUP NOT WAITING FOR ME WHEN I GOT HOME.

4. WHY DOES THE US GOVT WANT MY MONEY. Guys. Come on. Don’t you want somebody else’s instead?

Cave of Forgotten Dreams

French Archeologist: The first time I entered to Chauvet cave…it was so powerful. Then, every night, I was dreaming of lions. And every day was the same shock for me…I mean, I’m a scientist. But a human too. And after five days, I decided not to go back in the cave.

Werner Herzog: And you were afraid, in your dreams?

French Archeologist: I was not afraid. No no. I was not afraid. It was a feeling of powerful things. And deep things. A way to understand things which is not a direct way. url

Mom’s Birthday: A Careful And Reasonable Plan

me: do you think she’d like a puppy for her birthday?
or several?
maybe mom wants a birthday tattoo
we can go to a tattoo parlor and then Hooters
My brother: The puppy is a fantastic idea. It’s been almost thirty years so she’s probably totally ready to go back to the days when her life was consumed by something that needs constant attention, gives her nightmares, and shits all the time.
me: oh good that’s exactly what i was thinking
tattoo parlor, puppy mill, and THEN Hooters
happy biiiiiirthdayyyyyyyyy
My brother: Better add another puppy.
And maybe an ocelot.
