Put that list on shuffle, last night at the Matador, and Bree Sharp’s “David Duchovny” played right after my question about Jake Gyllenhaal’s Time-And-Space movies, and the Imperial March played right after my question about Aliens. So that was nice.
Tuesday night, at the Vortex, my friend James showed up and bought me a shot.
Also Tuesday, I spent the morning given free reign over rearranging the presentation of all of retail at Alon’s. Then I got to go home early. It was pretty great.
Got pulled over, on the way to the Matador, last night, because of a burned out tail light. Told the cop that i couldn’t figure out how to change it, myself (true, so far), that all the repair shops were closed (true, because it was 7.30), and that I was on my way to a speaking engagement (trivia hosting). He let me go with a warning.
Last night, we went to The Corner Tavern in L5P and got Gin and Tonic Slushies. Yes, they’re exactly as good as they sound.
It’s been a pretty okay week, all told.
