I MEAN TO SHINE…

I had a really nice evening yesterday. Milford treated me to dinner at a place called “The Outback” —- I felt so oddly hetrosexual! Anyway, we had deep and meaningful conversations on life and the challenges it tosses our way. His warmth and sense of humor lifted my spirits. And, I was feeling a bit frustrated as my interview(s) were all canceled/postponed for next week because everyone decided to take off for a very long weekend. Can’t blame them, but I didn’t get the news till I had already arrived in the Financial District all dressed up with no where to go! Oi!

And, much to my annoyance, I was up and down sick for good part of the night. And, then slept right thru till 10am!!!??!?! Not good! But, I guess I needed the sleep. Felt fine today, tho — and I even have a new job lead! Yay!

So, am I nuts or didn’t our president tell us a year or so ago that he never claimed to tie the war on Iraq with the events of 9/11? Maybe I dreamt that. Anyway, now he ist telling us that we are in Iraq killing and being killed because we need to prevent another 9/11. What happened to logic? Why is no one applying any thought to the horrors being perpetuated by our government leaders? I mean, don’t we stand a chance of actually providing more inspirational fuel for all the insane terrorist out there just by continuing this sad war?

No one is actualy thinking anything through. Well, that is not entirely true. I know we are all really upset about Hermes snubbing of Oprah! And, I know we are waiting for that big Tom and Katie wedding! With things like this going on — who has time to worry about the war or our Supreme Court?!?!?

My Big Odd iPod Started My Day as Follows:
(select shuffle)

The Limehouse Blues – Harry James Quintet
I Never Meant to Hurt You – Laura Nyro
Where’s Your Head At – Basement Jaxx
Conversations on a Barstool – Annie Ross
Playboy Mommy – Tori Amos
Funtime – Iggy Pop
I Mean to Shine – Babs Streisand (covering D. Fagan)

And, upon exiting the Powell Muni Station I came upon on a quater face side up — year 1986. I decided it meant good luck and that I needed to shine! Had a nice little chat with a crazy homeless man who screamed everything he said, but he was actually nice. Advised me to walk on the left side of Market today as “the karma of the right side is really fucked up, man” I thanked him and shined on. …so to speak.

    You mean Outback Steakhouse, or a restaurant called the Outback? I could go for huge steak- I haven’t had red meat since father’s day when I bbqed for my dad…..

    Anyway, good luck on the job leads. I hope the quarter, head side up, is a good omen 🙂

    i love reading your blog posts, i really do.
    i always find myself laughing at your sarcasm and admiring your good taste in music and also getting worked up over the same confusion and anger at the government.

    it gives me hope that there are people living with their eyes open.
