It Won't Stop
Yes, we had a deal going that when Reagan died, I would treat Stan and Tim to a meal, just as when the Pope dies, Tim will supposedly treat us. No, I did not like Reagan, and yes, I am sick of the 24-hour All Reagan All The Time news coverage (which I am trying to avoid at the cost of not knowing what else is going on in world momentarily). But that does not mean he had to get us a tacky gag gift of a newspaper photo clipping of Reagan being shot, framed in a tacky frame. Stan says, and I agree, just because you do not like someone for their politics and are glad when their era is over, does not mean you want gruesome reminders of gory things in their life. The 'gift' was in very poor taste and just shows that Tim does not and never has, understood us. I fear the tacky crap he will get me for my birthday. He might as well just make a tax-deductible donation straight to St. Vincent's (2nd hand charity thrift store in town) because that's where his stuff ends up.

I had this dream the night before last
I was in bed with Brian Eno. I actually don't remember anything much sexual...he really didn't look too much like himself, but it was him nonetheless. After he left the bed, I saw that he left me two tickets to a performance of his in Milwaukee on some Sunday (like as if). I showed them to Stan and asked Stan if he had the weekend off. I told him I had to go, but Stan said he had to work. I pleaded with him to call in sick, and I remember saying, 'We have to go! Brian Eno and Roger Waters are the only two people I would go to the ends of the earth to see!'
Which begs the questions:
Is Milwaukee an end of the earth? Or just an end?
Which is more absurd from a 'yeah, that's really going to happen' standpoint, being in bed with Brian Eno or Brian Eno performing in Milwaukee?
And I was IN BED WITH BRIAN ENO FERFREAKSAKES....why was it so important for me to go to another city to see his performance? Heh.
