No more memoir blogging, but...

No more butterflies.

Rattlesnakes I dislike for obvious reasons.

But Bats actually do good, eating insects as they fly at night. And rats must do some good. Aren't they scavengers?

So, why do I still loathe bats and rats? Is there an evolutionary reason? Maybe I should ask Bob Wright.

OK, I just watched "Dahmer" on IFC and now "Ed Gein" is on IFC. What is going on in the water in Wisconsin?

I can say that because as I have mentioned before I am from the only Waunakee in the World. Go Badgers.

On a side note my mother worked at the Mendota Mental Health Institute and saw Ed Gein frequently. So I guess I am kind of a starf...ker. Also, sadly I knew one of the victims of Jeffrey Dahlmer-not well, but I did go to a party of his-his name was Oliver, tragic.

Granted it is not as glamorous as Brad and George but still I want some props.

Also, I will be blogging on Althouse my review of Wolfe's book "Acid Kool Aid" and hope you all enjoy. KIDDING!!! I won't be doing that but the book is absolutely fascinating. Of course I already looked up where the bus is etc. I wanted to be around back then-what a time. Instead I came of age during AIDS and Just Say No-bummer.

So what is everyone doing? How we doing? How's life?

OK, I work for a fabulous company and I have to go to Jackson Mississippi in two weeks and I am a wreck. If I get lynched please use my comments on Althouse as a memory of my fabulousness.

I am tempted to go to a gay bar in Jackson and hijack the DJ booth and tell of them to run for their lives.

I went to a store on the Upper West Side. This store is like a Museum of Natural History where everything is for sale: every taxidermic or skeletal animal that roams the earth is represented in this shop and, because of that, it is popular. I went with my brother last weekend. Near the cash register was a bowl of glass eyes and a sign reading "DO NOT HOLD THESE GLASS EYES UP AGAINST YOUR OWN EYES: THE ROUGH STEM CAN CAUSE INJURY."

I talked to the fellow behind the counter and he said, "It's the same thing every tme. First they hold up the eyes and then they go for the horns. I'm sick of it."

It frightened me that, until I saw the sign, my first impulse was to hold those eyes up to my own. I thought it might be a laugh riot.

All of us take pride and pleasure in the fact that we are unique, but I'm afraid that when all is said and done the police are right: it all comes down to fingerprints.

rats.  i hate rats.  also spiders.  you can never trust a spider.
spiders are like republicans, pure evil.
rats are like democrats.  they chase you in circles, and when they catch you, they devour you whole.

titus, where do you live...  i want to visit your kitchen floor while you're away, unless, of course, you have rats.
please advise.   thanks.

Bill: Ever thought about the subtle, yet significant, difference(s) between "laugh riot" and "riot laugh"?

It could change your life, blogfriend.

When you go for your walks you need to be mindful of the neighborhood.

Finally, I've found a source for freeze-dried bats! The Althouse blog is such a national treasure...

Hothouse you are very right.

This is a true story. One night I might a guy on the street and we went to an alley. He wanted us to take all our clothes off which I thought was a little weird. I said no, just pee pee out. So while he was blowing me he pulled out a gun stuck his hands in my pocket, put the gun to my pee pee and stole my wallet.

Needless to say, I was horrified. I called the police and told them I was robbed at gunpoint but left out the blowjob part.

If you don't mind saying, where is this shop? It's not Maxilla & Mandible, is it?

(I need some stuffed rats.)

thank you, professor.
life is hard if you're an insect.
every little encouragement is welcomed, especially because all people seem to want to do is step on you.

another nice thing you could do for me is to leave a drop or two of marinara sauce on the floor next to the stove and some garlic bread crumbs on the counter.  another favorite is a spatter of egg salad just under the fridge.

i see lots of photos of you in cafes, and i know you hate egg salad, so i'm not encouraged to find very much in your kitchen.

oh well.  the kind words will have to be enough.  now there must be someone here who will admit to being a sloppy cook or keeping trash three days under the sink....
