Wednesday's Digressions


  • Where I live rent keeps going up which makes occupancy go down which makes rent go up... Except for the fact rent does keep going up; I have no idea how how much of the preceding sentence is true but it feels right.
  • From my notebook on 11/01/2015 @1906: "Man, I love Harvest Moon". I have no idea what that means. Neils Young's song of the same name doesn't do much for me.
  • Hot baths are a simple pleasure.
  • Recently I tried to watch Tales From Teh Darkside. It was pretty bad. It was weird to see young Steve Buscemi and Julianne Moore.
  • An old friend saw a mountain lion on the Brazos this morning. It seemed odd to me that in is  his post he called it a,"puma".
  • Whenever a group of religious nutballs predict the end of the world or when Sept. 11 is about to roll around a friend leaves his house and camps the night prior on his land and makes his wife take the day off. He lives in the middle of nowhere on 200+ acres. If he really wanted to be ready for the, End Times he should just stockpile some dirt to block his dead end and reasonably little known gravel road and go on about his life fishing and tending his cows. Ta-Da! Ready for the zombie apocalypse.
  • Wow, land and homes are incredibly expensive today.
  • Today is 04/29/2016. A friend just gave me some essential oil that is supposed to help me sleep. I am to put a  drop on each shoulder. He uses another type for snoring by placing one drop on the bridge of his nose and one on each big toe. He is easily one of the smartest people I know.
  • I weep for the species.

I like some of Percival's material, notably the country-flavored Comes a Time, but also much of the CH stuff, too: Like a Hurricane, Out of the Blue, Into the Black, KoRitFW. Not sure I have a copy of Harvest Moon.

You are correct about baths. They are a nice indulgence.

Does your friend have any snake oil?

Cowgirl in the sand easily my fave NY song.
It jumped out at me I might have meant the actual harvest moon but man- I have no idea.
Ha, yeah snake oil was my first thought but he was trying to help and being soooo nice i couldn't give him grief about it.
