Listening to: Frank Zappa, Hot Rats
Tonight, single full-time dad takes advantage of X having the brood and steps out to see a friend's band perform. From what my buddy tells me, his group has a kind of garage/punk sound (this year's flavor, of course) and I'm anxious to see how they pull that off. God, I hope they're not another "Jet" (although I like their hit) and in deferrence to my enduring internet crush on Glitzy, I hope they're like the Monkees with a lot of Cream thrown in.
If you're out and about this way, I'll be the guy in the black crushed velvet bell bottoms, wide-collared striped cotton shirt, and braod-toed platform shoes. Yes, my fashion sense has much to be desired and I don't need anyone telling me there might be a reason why I'm still single. Momma don't dress me, Pappa don't mess, and a bird in the hand is as rare these days as a moment of my mind not playing Mia's "Galang" to me (it's turning out to be a good year for me).
Back to dad tomorrow, briefly, as I pick Lilly up and take her a birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese (AKA, Zero Population Growth Conspiracy). Then, back here for more of this where I'm delluded by my impression that this corner of the universe is interesting, where Sisyphus winks and snickers. Alas, you get what you pay for but I get the sense that my motivation is back, in spades (the high suit), and my babbling is about to take on a new, ebullient nature.
God help us all.
Addendum: RE: a question Seeingdouble asked in my HST post. I am no pacifist, I believe there are just wars. Had I been young enough to volunteer, I would have been in Afghanistan hunting down Usama bin Laden, had I been old enough, I would have been in Europe working to defeat Hitler. It saddens me that our current administration has put people in such an economic bind that they need to enlist in a Rich Man's Adventure and fight for corporate interests. Saddam Hussein was a bad man, sure, but no immediate threat to our country. Indeed, George W. Bush has done far more harm to the US than Saddam could have ever done.
Draw whatever conclusions from that statement that you wish.
