We should do this again

Aaron is trying to teach Damien how to speak because, he says teaching them how to bark is the first step in teaching them not to bark.

I don't know how this could possibly be true, especially since he doesn't bark except when we're not home, but it's amusing to watch him try.

This is what Aaron says: "Damien, speak!"

This is what the dog does: stares blankly.

This is what Aaron says: "Damien, speak! Rowrorororor"

This is what the dog does: cocks his head.

This is what Aaron says: "Damien, speak! Woof! Woof!"

This is what the dog does: walks away.

For all we know, Aaron is saying, "Fuck you and your mother" in dogese.

There is a new market open in the neighborhood, and I love it so much, but mostly just because it's half a block away instead of a block and a half. What is that saying? The lazy shall inherit the earth? No, the weak...or the meek? Lazy people are weak and meek. It's correct by association.

Obviously, I have had a very long day, beginning with a manic hair dye session with my favorite stylist ever, Morgan at Trimmers on Haight. One repigmentation, one black streaking process, one all-over reddish burgendyish coloring process, a quick shot with the blowdryer, and I hailed the first cab I saw and jetted off to work. I was exactly on time (though the cab ride cost $20 since I didn't want to wait for him to give me change...first time ever I said, "Keep the change!". V. exciting and metropolitan.) I HATE being late for work, although I'm compulsively late when it comes to social obligations, so perhaps it was worth the $8 tip.

In any event, I have nothing else to say.

one year ago today: nothin.

two years ago today: "i dunno. i'm still very neutral towards everything, but the placebo effect of these pills is helping." and "sequence of events "

three years ago today: "i think i'm addicted to froot loops."
