Man. US Maple is really nuts. I mean, nuts in a good way, but still, some of the weirdest stuff I've ever seen or heard. Bring that back out again. The purple album is so so good.

Bizzy bizzy at work. I like it that way. Superhero or maniac? Who cares? I'm learning a lot. I'm rolling with punches. Boss's boss says this builds character. It also makes time fly.

Check it out - I'm gonna be an auntie again like any day now. Any day. A little dude for dressing up in dinosaur patterns. I'm just waiting for that call. Then I gotta arrange a trip to Cincinnatti right quick in order to sniff that baby before he stops smelling sweet. Man I love sniffing new babies, don't you?

I just spent an hour driving through a moment in time of Chicago's Englewood neighborhood with Google's new Streetview feature. It must've been a beautiful day that day because everyone and everyone was out on their porches. I made a gallery of some of the people I saw.

Gallery --> here.

We don't have much of a porch culture in our world. I'd bet these peeps even know who their neighbors are.

I'm alone tonight. The first days of autumn always bring nostalgia.

I can't believe Peanut is gone. Long gone. That skinny little body we worked so hard to build back up. Those wounds I cleaned and wrapped... They're all so much a part of history.

Why didn't I keep that dog? What was I afraid of?

I was young. And youth goes hand and hand with selfishness, fear of committment, uncertainty and immortality.

That pup is long gone. And if I could I would, but I imagine anyone who says they don't have regrets is a flat out liar.

I did what I could at the time. And I will always wish to have done more. For as long as I live. In every circumstance. That's how I am.

53 minutes until big meating. I'm not prepared and have medicine head.
I can do this. I can do this. Be cool.

Burr.. Autumn is here. Bust out the old old Smashing Pumpkins. They compliment each other. And headphones can keep it your secret.

ps - today is my half birthday! 29.5 yay.
