gotta love Friday. best day of the week. work is not only finished, it's done. two glorious days off to rest the weary bones, catch up on sleep, socialize, watch a movie without looking at the clock 2/3 of the way through, drink a beer for breakfast, chase the cat around the house until it's pissed and wants out, get a quarter of coke and stay up all night knowing the next day can be dozed over, make candles, buy a domain, cruise netflix, sort baseball cards into numerical order, check to make sure the air conditioner's condensor unit is on, walk out and look at the new car sitting in the driveway one more time, play "london calling" late friday night just louder than the stereo can handle, touch it without feeling rushed, go to the store and walk every aisle and play hide-the-baloney in the tofu bin.
...i'm thinking of a tattoo. a very special one. it's already drawn and hanged. a decision long in the making, but not yet decided. the ruling rests on the shoulders of those jurists who must choose that part of the anatomy that must submit. i must admit that getting involved with half nekkid thursday has made me think more on the artist i most enjoy. her name is augusta asberry. i have a poster from Seattle Folk Festival during the early to mid '90's when i worked at the Center. it was one of the festival posters and it is grand. three dancing figures. i have two of the dancers on me already...but where to put the third and final...truly a dilemma...plus, then i have to find the right tattooist. i'm not in seattle and at slave to the needle anymore. it took me 35 years to find the right artist for the first one...
and now for the news:
Jay: it'll be hothothot in the city tomorrow, but more on that later. plus, sports happened a lot today and that's coming up. but, first, this breaking news: steroids in the white house? did the deputy chief of the needle? details at 11...
it's six o'clock and in breaking new photos you will see all of the differences in michael jackson's appearance and how much this trial hurt him. Brent?
Brent: thanks Jay. plus, we'll have an interview with defendants from the case everyone is talking about.
but, now, let's go to our weather center and Harry Hagopianolopolous. harry, take it away. by the way, what's with the wig? you lose a bet?
Harry: no, Brent. good one. it's hairsuit day in new zealand and on a cold day like it is down under there i just wanted to show solidarity with the limes.
Brent: ...did you mean 'hirsute'? and 'kiwis'?
