the best way to get to California

Are you talkin about God?
No. I'm talkin about you.
She ate. Well, she said. You'd be in a fix if you didnt know where you was at.
I dont know. Would you?
I dont know.
Suppose you was someplace that you didnt know where it was. The real thing you wouldnt know was where someplace else was. Or how far it was. It wouldnt change nothin about where you was at.

I think maybe that's the point. There's a road goin to California and there's one comin back. But the best way would be just to show up there.
Show up there.
You mean and not know how you got there?
Yeah. And not know how you got there.
I dont know how you'd do that.
I dont either. That's the point.
She ate. She looked around. Can I get some coffee? she said.

you know, high-fives. but this time: online!

it seems to me like we need an acronym for this sort of thing. an emoticon.

or maybe that's the point of a high-five. that that's it. it is what it is: two arms upraised, two hands slapping. yeah!

there is no possible substitute.

you just have to time it right.



if you do a google search

for !!!, this is what it looks like.

strange, no?

anyhoo. i'd like to see these dudes live some day.



yay area

it's good to be back.

Conan is awesome. Baron, his beard and the rest of the War-eee-yers -- and Oracle Arena -- are simply unstoppable, baby. (just look at how excited Carlos is!) and, it's fiesta time this weekend.

yay! area!

idea: let's melt a couple more bridges around here and really get crazy.
