irrationality.

the other night in vancouver, dave and i wondered upstairs to a bar. we walked inside and there were two men with testerone bubbling, watching hockey and drinking beer. we sat down at the bar and ordered some wine, and sat there, talking to a girl with lipstick and a child, and a bar tender who looked like a cross between a salesman and wax figure, with the gentle nature of an uncle that your parents keep somewhat distant for the sake of sheidling the truth...ya know, despite his gentle nature, he's somewhat of a bad influence, but at the same time, he's your favorite uncle. seinfeld came on the tv and the bar tender started reciting lines from the show which immediately put him in my good graces. i leaned back on my barstool and laughed like a regular, he told us that coors beer is a good beer, while i chuckled to myself and sipped more wine, i enjoyed the moment...in vancouver, dirnking wine with dave, and laughing at seinfeld, and a man who perhaps loves seinfeld as much as i do, and who loves hockey just as much. the example of a pleasant existence, a humble existence with nothing to prove, with no agenda but to exist with a smile throughout the week.

LOL. Jon is too funny.

I loved reading that, Zach. It made me feel like I was there.
Seinfeld is good. I was able to visit NYC and a friend took me to get one of the NBC mugs there, and I ran across a Seinfeld mug. I figured it was a classic, even if a little plain. Good times. :)

I haven't watched much hockey, but my daughter and son-in-law are very into hockey. They both play roller hockey pretty much whenever he's not at work, I think.

I will see you on Friday.

Have a good trip to SLC.

I know it may not sound like a compliment but you remind me so much of this columnist in our school newspaper who just gives EVERY detail to a story. I think it makes the reader laugh and keeps them going.
I loved reading that blog-- it gave me a smile

comedy...for whatever reason, the second stanza of U2's "Beautiful Day" seems to play along (in my mind :)) to your adventures:
"You're on the road but you've got no destination
You're in the mud, in the maze of her imagination
You love this town even if it doesn't ring true
You've been all over and it's been all over you
It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away..."
So, cheers to you, your continued adventures, Bono & to almost finishing my dissertation (one more chapter to write--thank God!)! :)~A.J.
