A response: Probably. You'll also start getting it in your ears and other socially unacceptable places. (I haven't yet reached that stage, tho my facial hair is greying on my chin.)

An announcement: I just bottled my second batch of wine, raising my stock to 48 bottles. And it tastes pretty fucking good if I do say so myself.

A recommendation: Just finished listening to Chuck Palahniuk's new novel, Snuff. If you like Palahniuk's style, sense of humour, and usual subject matter, you'll probably like Snuff. Set in the backroom of a shoot for the world's biggest gang bang—one porn star eyeing a comeback, six hundred guys willing to be a part of history—three men have more personal reasons of varying types of redemption for being there. I place this in the upper tier of CP's works, partly because he's more focused and his more narrative-focused than his more recent efforts.

Yeah, I get some strange ear hair, and an occasional long one pops up in my eyebrows. Needless to say, I fucking hate it.

I get mutant eyebrow hairs. Lately I've been getting a few grey or white nostril hairs—what kind of sins did I commit in a past life to warrant that?

Observation: Upper management pushing up your forced resignation two weeks without warning or reason screwing you out of a month of insurance kind of sucks.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

That just opens the way for a new occupation.

I'm speaking, of course, of amateur porn.

Speaking of porn...
I just got a spam email suggesting I date married women. Something about the 'Lonely Wives Dating Community'. It had all these links to sites with 'Lonely House Wives'

I don't know how my email addy gets out to these types of people.... :scared:

I have been told I'm too big for the human species and that I'd only find a home in niche markets involving elephants and large horses.

Actually yeah, I'm planning on moving on to a different field as this one hasn't inspired me much (lame excuse, but definitely true).

Sorry to hear that, Hoy. Hopefully this proves to be a blessing and you find something that you really enjoy doing. Maybe Terry needs an assistant.

A surprise: I just saw an ad with Guy Lafleur encouraging battery recycling, and he looks great. Like he's in his mid-40's, I'd say.

AN Observation: My dog resembles the popular Disney licensed character "Stitch."

Except Stitch is less hideous.

A confession: I've been reading Pitchfork pretty regularly of late. Once you get over the tremendously douchey review styles, they do serve to expose one to a lot of different kinds of music. And I've decided to make a concerted effort to expose myself more to new music.
