Wrote some other stuff, didn’t care for it. Called one plumber and a couple of shrinks. Plumbers answer their phone. How many shrinks do you have to call to get an appointment? I don’t know, I su...


Fuzzy newborn chick with a trout strapped to his back is hanging on a dorm room wall. An eighteenth-century lithograph of the hanging of a witch with the caption “hang in there baby”. These were ...


They didn’t literally prescribe; Ass fuck, take twice daily before lubrication. They came very close to literally writing; he’ll have nothing and like it (the like it part is hyperbole). I don’t ...

Beg pardon, what? in Normal entries

The mercury is creeping on ninety, or, would be if I had mercury in my thermometers. Every digital device I have, including the home thermostat, has a different theory on the very empirical immed...


Healthcare clusterduck today. Oh, not trying to be coy, GF’s phone auto-corrects to the politest when it’s not being entirely revisionist, mine does just the opposite. I’ve gotten used to typing ...


PSU, Portland State University. Don’t fret never having heard of it, I hadn’t either when I applied. I only applied to schools in places I wanted to live; Portland, OR and Albuquerque, NM. I was ...


When the mob began to swell I was going to swell along. That force that drives us down the short boulevard needed me somewhere else. I woke up in someone’s bathtub, days later, or maybe just hour...

Win Win Whine in Normal entries

Started dreaming again, medication has changed. In a broad sense I suppose I’m neutral, day to day, however, it’s fucking weird. How do you people manage to do stuff? I could suggest my dreams ar...


Shit, I don’t remember why I orphaned this, it’s slept with the computer for at least two nights, tucked away in the lower right. I barely remember writing it. I think that wouldn’t happen so oft...

Dog world in Normal entries

Until I met the once and future Mrs. Ex-Haredawg, sometime around the middle of the crack of 1978, I hadn’t realized I wanted kids. I hadn’t even thought about it, though I did carry a condom in ...


Hashtag Walkaway, can anybody give me a coherent and positive explanation of what the fuck this is? I’m serious, no argument or judgement, unless we have wildly different notions of what coherent...


Journal writing is a bitch, the straight day to day sort of shit. Weird as it seems after eighteen years of keeping an online journal, I don’t much care of the core of the idea; not in general, b...


There was a diarist here (no matter where here is), one of few I think about who either isn’t dead or pretending to be (there’s the story of John Irish, if you’re really bad and you don’t know, I...


More desktop orphans below. Not sure why that keeps happening. Sure, I have a laundry list of how it happens, but at some point the events are excuses the truth of things are in the outcome; half...

Sams Day in Normal entries

It’s the fourth of July in the Western Hemisphere, at least this side of the Greenwich, um, mean line? Christ I’m losing pieces of memory. Greenwich and mean are definitely part of it. I used to ...


Fish Tacos. What do fish tacos have to do with anything? Same as anything else, I guess, they don’t have to do with much except fish tacos. I like fish tacos. It’s been a while since I had one. I...


I woke somewhere near the crack of dawn, at least it smelled like the crack. It was in the mid seventies as the sun rose and the windows were all fogged with condensation. The whole first half of...

Early Dog Days in Normal entries

There are places where I’m allowed to pee and places where I really like to pee. I’ve actually heard a real live person say that. He was getting arrested at the time. He also said a bunch of thin...

Used Morning in Normal entries

Somewhere below this is some chunk of dialogue orphaned on the desktop. Like so many in the foster care system, I’m not sure placing this orphaned dialogue will improve its quality of life or enc...

Soggy thoughts in Normal entries

I’ve lost the spark. Which spark? All of them. Not being fatal or dramatic, I lost them as in misplaced, not as in Dead. Of all the euphemism for death, lost is the one that confuses me most. Its...


Much like you, I’m very fond of myself except for when I think I’m an asshole, or, when I’m just the observer to some grand or base display of someone elses design, yours, perhaps. It’s been hott...

Untitled in Normal entries

Guess I am capable of deleting partial entries, like there is a line where crap just isn’t going to get another chance to be digested. I’ve had a shitty month for no particular reason, nothing I ...


So, the deal is that’s it’s really hot outside and I had to figure out what to do; it was a toss up between writing the below or napping. I sort of met half way. No, there is a subject in that la...


The air smells of grass and copper today. I kept my eye out for huddled jackals gnashing in a circle. My morning might have been a bit colored by my week. The week was not exclusively mine, I’m p...

Scrappy in Normal entries

My new MO is leaving an entry to marinate on the desktop for a while. The stuff below was written on an unbearably hot day. I’ll give y’all a heads when below is the below of a bygone day. This y...
