I always wanted to have a beard.

Think of the striking portraits of Abraham Lincoln or Ulysses S. Grant: is it possible in this day and age that we will have a woman president sooner than a bearded one? (And, while we're on the subject, do you think we will ever have a bearded lady as president?)

I heard Dave Davies on the radio tonight.

Not that Dave Davies, the other Dave Davies. He was subbing for Terry Gross on Fresh Air. I caught the tail end of his interview with John Madden. Not that John Madden, the other John Madden. They commiserated with one another on sharing names with big, famous celebrities.

Dave Davies
"If you Google my name, the first 9,000 hits will be the lead guitarist for the Kinks."

John Madden
"I don't even know quite what he looks like, but I know he doesn't look like me. He's rather larger than me, isn't he?"
And then I walk into my building and these two guys down the hall from me are blasting the Kinks' Village Green Preservation SocietyPosted by Picasa

Today I got an IM from someone I don't know, but I guess this person knows me. That was a few hours ago. I just got this message from the same person: "dude, just ignore whatever is sent to you from this screename. i'm not even at the computer most of the time, but my roomates use my computer" Posted by Picasa

We are fine and we are back, and I would LOVE to see gang of four.

Mo Rocca signed my balls.

I guess I should mention that Mo Rocca did a free show at UMass tonight. He's a really admirable guy. And he autographed my parking ticket from 9/28/04. Posted by Picasa

This is the back, lefthand corner of the ceiling. The brown water is Coke C2. Posted by Picasa

I had started cleaning up by this point. The temperature in the fridge was set too low, which is why the can exploded in the first place. Ground Zero was a sludgy mess, and the walls, ceiling, and floor of the fridge were sprayed with a viscous residue. Posted by Picasa

Shave and a haircut.

I look like the Dave Brubeck Quartet or something.
