Treated to a tasty vegetarian dinner by a good friend this evening. And pear dumplings with rasberry sauce for dessert. I don't deserve such lavish food.

I love the smell of napalm in the morning.
Oh wait..did I say napalm? I meant to say clean sheets.
August 29, 2000
I think I'm going to write something about how much I enjoy spitting on cars who cut me off when I'm biking.

You know that a piece of music is good when you can look down over your body and see goosebumps everywhere.

There was a funk in the hallway of my apartment building today, so I burned a smidge of incense out there. All better.

I was walking home (about 1.5 miles) from the club tonight when somebody started following me in their car. They cruised by me slowly, then turned around ahead of me and drove by, then went around the block and by me again. At that point, I was pretty freaked out, so I ducked behind a parked car, then took off running perpendicular to them as soon as they started moving again. I hopped a fence, ran through a backyard, and sprinted the rest of the way home, altering my route so I was always within close proximity to someone I knew. Creepy.

For some reason, screaming my lungs out along with the song just seemed like the right thing to do tonight while driving home after dinner.

Thee shall from this day and forever more be known as "Bizouch With the White Yippie Dog Who Cut Me Off in Traffic This Morning While I Was Riding My Bike to Work."
August 23, 2000
While I was biking tonight, a locust flew right into the spokes on my bicycle. Let me tell you, it made a really funny/scary noise.
August 22, 2000
There was a going-away part for a guy at work today and there was cake. I had a piece with a big glob of blue frosting (how unnatural!) and it stained my tongue quite nicely.
August 21, 2000
It was absolutely pouring this morning when I left for work and I decided not to wear a raincoat on purpose. If it happens by choice, I don't mind feeling a bit damp in the morning. In fact, it was kind of refreshing.
August 20, 2000
After nearly two weeks of temperatures that didn't drop much below 80 at night, the cool breeze blowing in on my leg this morning seemed even nicer than it normally would have.
August 19, 2000
I bought grapes to take to a little get together, then ended up eating about a half pound all by myself. Somebody stop me.
August 18, 2000
A guy I work with passed me in his truck tonight on the way home. Nearly a mile later, though, I caught up with him and zoomed by on my bike as he was stuck in traffic. Seeing everyone backed-up sitting in their hot cars, it made me feel even more free as I pedaled home.

Tonight when I was standing outside the club, I convinced two drunk girls eating nachos that the scientific term for sour cream was "shmegma." I then convinced them that the way to pick up guys was to ask them if they wanted to eat their nachos and shmegma. It was a childish thing for me to do, but I got a big laugh when it actually worked.

You may ask yourself, "why is he drinking hot chocolate when it's 94 degrees out." I may respond by saying, "because it's tasty, silly person."
August 15, 2000
I've been called a music slut before, but today was the first time I've ever been called a music pimp. I guess there's a first time for everything.
August 14, 2000
It's always a cool thing when other people seem to be as excited about something as you are.
August 13, 2000
I looked at the white and yellow lemonade carton. It was 4 in the morning and until I saw that my finger had again split open, I wondered where the blood had come from.
August 12, 2000
I watched the electronic scale as it churned and finally spit out a number; my lowest weight since freshman year of college.
August 11, 2000
I heard the screaming at about 9:30am at work this morning. Wondering what was going on, I stuck my head out into the hallway and a bat buzzed by my head. What a surreal Friday.
August 10, 2000
They put some new speakers in at the club this week and the DJ tonight was abusing them like crazy. Hard, fast and minimal is my favorite to dance to.
August 9, 2000
Usually, I freak people out by what music I'm listening to at work. Today, people were freaked out because I listened to about 5 hours worth of trial testimony by Emmanuel Goldstein on the DeCSS case. At least I found it interesting.
August 8, 2000
Another 15-minute lunch break. At least the food tasted good while it lasted.
August 7, 2000
Over the course of only one quarter of a mile of hiking, I saw a fawn, a rather large turtle, two cardinals, and a dead bat. The countryside is nice like that (although I would have preferred seeing the bat alive).
August 6, 2000
I think I pushed my snooze button about 9 times today. Which is OK because it was a weekend.
August 5, 2000
Picked the hottest day of the year for intense outside activity. In almost 100 degree temperatures and high humidity, I worked with my step-father and brother and put in nearly a half mile of fencing. We strung barbed-wire and pounded in posts and hacked down weeds and small shrubs that were in the way, all the while sweating like crazy. Nobody managed to fall ill fortunately, although I managed to hurt myself slightly (blistering the skin clear off my hand in an area about the size of a dime) from brush clearing with a corn knife.
August 4, 2000
Went out to eat with a bunch of friends and had a mighty tasty Indian food meal. Can't quite recall the name of the dish, but it had spinach and jalepeno peppers.
August 3, 2000
The thunder was loud enough to wake me up this morning, but it was the brightness of the lightning that kept me awake.
August 2, 2000
Tis the time of the year for lovely, huge fresh tomatoes. I rather enjoy eating them as one would eat an apple, with small sprinkles of salt before each bite just to make the acids even more stingy.

"Holy Shit! It's August already!" said Aaron as he looked at his calendar this morning.
