So the return trip drags. Way too much time is spent waiting in terminals and on tarmacs. The Doctor Pepper beverage service on the return trip is no where near as tasty as it was on the way out. And after a week of high-altitude, clear-sky serenity it’s almost a relief to be picked up by Mandy and Maury in a Burbank drizzle. We promptly traipse over to Toi on Sunset and shout funny stories to each other over the Nine Inch Nails and the Jesus And Mary Chain howling in the background.
Still, I have returned here a changed boy. No longer will this blog point out the ridiculous and the inane moments in life and internet. No longer will I waste your time with nonsense and weirdness. Because I realize now that there’s a lot we take for granted in this world. There’s a lot we assume will last forever. Years roll on. Times change. People grow. And we don’t realize that . . .
. . . we don’t realize . . .
. . . um. I think, er… What was I–?
Wait a second . . .
Hey, check this out! It’s a hamster! With it’s tongue out! Ha-ha-ha! Wheee! Looky here!
Glad to be back. And special thanks to cuteoverload.com for this pic.
