Well, I changed the past again, but I had the paradox inhibitor on, so I have no idea what from, and really, what to.
Palm update from yesterday – 8/3/04 – bus ride to work
7:20 am – The route 1 bus’s scrolly-sign time settings are off, making it seem 2 hours later than it actually is.
Particularly bumpy ride… time to repave SE 3rd ave. It’s cool outside – the rains have suppressed the heat nicely.
12:24 pm – Morning meeting went well, met the new fund raiser… she seems nice enough, sort of reminds me of Betsy Sylvester, the girl up the street from my Boynton days.
Denny’s for lunch… veggie burger is rather expensive. i should keep some provisions in the freezer for the future.
Bro goes to court on Thursday? I wonder how he’ll do? I imagine he’ll be released, but you never know.
4:35 pm – There are a lot of well-dressed, damaged people on the bus, though not so many vagrant-types. Both mentally and / or physically broken folk. It reminds me of rt60, that goes to the methadone clinic… the price of riding the bus serving the hospital, jail, and courthouse. Not nearly so tricky a crowd on the 3:30 run.
end palm update
More shots of the “mystery creature” spotted around Maryland and North Carolina. It seems to be able to project the “blur-field” that Bigfoot-type beasties use to hide with.
The old opening to the I Dream of Jeannie TV show with the brushes on the drums and trumpets is really spiffy, though the more familiar theme is simpler to stick in my skull.
I first heard the euphemism “honking out a dirt snake” yesterday. Noted, but it’s unlikely that I’ll ever use it outside of writing dialog for a character here or there.
