so, today really sucked...


first, on my way to work this morning, i got rear-ended. just driving along, minding my own business, when BAM!, i get smashed in the ass by an elderly woman who was doing about 80 in a 45 zone. i've only had my new car for two months. probably about two grand worth of damage. thank the various automotive gods and goddesses for plastic cars... but, man, was i pissed. at least the state trooper gave her some tickets...

then i get to work and check out the news on the web, only to see that Bob Hope passed away. say what you will, i grew up watching him on tv and in the movies and really enjoyed his humor. he really was devoted to entertaining the troops, both at home and away, i remember watching his Christmas special from Viet Nam every year. i hope he's really happy where ever he is, i'm sure he's still getting the laughs. so long, Bob... and thanks.



then i read that Erik Braunn died, who was the lead guitarist for Iron Butterfly, one of the quintessential psych-rock groups of the late sixties... he was a musical prodigy who played with them at the age of fifteen. nothing like that fuzz guitar and that crazy Farfisa organ sound...
rock on Erik, you're in good company.





and then i get home and check out the blog and there's a comment from Douglas of nofear.org. who think's my life sounds like Abbott and Costello's "Who's on First?" routine. thanks, Douglas... maybe a W.C. Fields movie, but never A&C!!! (only kidding, Douglas!)

so, i hope your day was better...
i'm going to go have something to eat now... i hope i don't choke to death on a freaking french fry...

later.
